The USAF has actual aces that have flown combat missions. Nobody in Japan has fought anything other than a JRPG antagonist. That place is safe as fuck and breeds limp wristed fucks. The only time I got in a fight in my 8 years of living in Japan was with a fucking American.
For a serious answer, the F-2s are low altitude ASCM-toting missile trucks, meant to come in at or near wavetop level and attack ships, hence the maritime camo.
Their F-15s are more or less the same gray that everyone else uses

Now the recent drone warfare has brought back anti-air guns from their long sleep, which calibre fits best for the job? Also, does size matter in this case?

Tungsten .17 Mach2/HMR would be good to 300-400 meters and be a useful anti infantry weapon..

9mm flobert with a pinched neck and tungsten #b shot would work at 100 meters or less, less range but better up close.

Both would require a tiny minigun because misfires would require powered extraction. Besides the 9mm flobert you would be lucky that you can carry tens of thousands of rounds as the troops would fire them at anything that moves.

Honestly even 9mm flobert firing tungsten bbs out of a gattling gun with teflon smooth bore barrels should keep anything within 100 meters suppressed.

Make it with a crimped neck like 7.62 Nagant, use 3.5mm-4mm tungsten shot. Fire from a 3 barrel teflon lined minigun. They would be effective to 100 meters where they would destroy a drone or do 2-3 inches of soft tissue penetration or 1-2 after clothing.

36 pellets per round out of a smooth bore at 6000 rpm, its 2160 projectiles per second. They are weak and useless past a few hundred feet but there is alot of them, a 10 second burst would be a hail of 21,600 bbs.
Wotan is outright superior to Bofors I agree.
Right like WTF? You need to see what the radius is.
IRST is pretty useless without a very robust automated pattern recognition AI. If you don't automate it, you just have an enhanced version of the mk 1 eyeball. Not to mention that radar can simultanously cover all azimuths, whereas it's a lot more difficult to do that with IRST. Hence why a lot of the latest anti-drone set-ups use 4x "ribbed tuna can" AESA mini-radars for search, and IRST only for tracking.

Any examples of survivorship bias in the Ukraine war?
43 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
You have no argument drone faggot.

Super Light transportation veichles (like jeeps and atv or motorbike) seems to survive disproportionately more than heavily armored vehicles but that is likely because drone operators are obsessively targeting higher value targets first and foremost while smaller, faster moving targets are just a less easy target with less value.

Individual infantrymen are also targeted but because they are easy target to hit as they don't move much.

Motorcycles are the most annoying targets as they are easy to miss and low priority value.

Which causes them to be targeted less.

However if much larger scale use of motorcycles was used we would see more drone deployed with frag than with shaped charges and operators would learn to detonate the drone above the target rather than on impact as the absolute lack of armor makes for easy kill
I wouldn't say it's survivorship bias in the context of strategy like the bomber example in the OP. It skews civilian perception, sure, but the Ukrainian brass has the big picture, and they're still dumping cash into drone production, even knowing the attrition rate.
Yes, I'm sure it's a tactical decision to shoot everything but the thinnest part of the tail, the engines, and the cockpit.
> but the Ukrainian brass has the big picture, and they're still dumping cash into drone production
A lot of drone units are self funded either through donations directly to the units or by a commander who has money, especially the good ones who post the viral videos. But at the end of the day the Ukies are pursuing FPV drones because they lack the capability to acquire/construct artillery shells and missiles and need to fill the gap with literally anything and FPVs can be assembled in someone’s living room using a cheap kit and some cells out of an EV battery.

That only really came into play in 1944, before that the armchair theorists were still huffing their own farts about how they could single-handedly defeat any nation on earth in a twoweek.
Retard, those rockets killed more people in the construction process than targets.

Its honestly really pathetic that they even need to deploy them at all

This is peak rifle you nigger faggot.
You ever look up where the names Krag–Jørgensen come from? You also ever look up the dating of Mauser actions, including what would become the G98?

You are just being an anti-historical retard at this point. Don't look up where gunpowder came into the west from if you want to argue over fundamentals. And believe it or not, the first rotating bolt action was also made by a German, Dreyse. Almost every single major innovation of the last 150-200 years of firearm innovation came from German speaking, or central Europe as a whole (whether it be the Czechs, Italians, or Germans or other Germanics).
Mauser's prototype G71/84 had a stacked internal magazine before 1879 (as was previously mentioned), he also had a conceived the box mag in the same timeframe and ultimately settled on a tube mag for the 84, he then later brought back the stacked internal mag for the new round he made for the G88, which stayed in the same form to the present. Kropatschek is also an Austrian Germanicized Slav who spoke German as his first language. The German speaking culture region of central Europe was the pinnacle of firearms innovation for the entirety of the 1800s to 1980s (Glock and HK, first polymer frame production pistols).

according to ncdu, its ~790gb, but most of that is ETYNTKE being duped in both a tar (~100gb) and as loose files (~150gb)

In terms of loose files, its ~130k

it would be definitely feasable to cut ETYNTKE as well as some of the stalker games.

Not that it needs to be said, but it is abundantly clear that the only insurance guarantee against a nation outright invading you is obtaining functional nuclear weapons. Only reason we are able to bully Iran is because (As far as we know) they don't have nukes yet

So why aren't they all doing it?

What, are you stupid? The ones who can and have the means to do so, do so. The ones who haven't yet, are being watched and prevented from developing nukes by more powerful countries, for obvious reasons.
>North Korea then broke the treaty.
I wonder when we'll realize that communists can't be relied on to adhere to treaties they sign.

We really should just maintain a perpetual state of war against all communist states.
Nukes are just smashing 2 rocks togther really hard, if you want powerful nukes then you add some nuke NOS like you would a car which increases the yield and efficiency of the explosion.
As others have stated above, thirdies arnt even really human and lack the capability.
North Korea is directly protected by China, which is how they can get away with it.

If you are an American, must know your enemy to effectively face him/her. The mainstream rifle of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army is the QBZ-191. It looks like a cross between a AK and an AR, with its silhouette resembling that of an HK-416. It's charging handle is on the side like an AK, and has the selector switch like an AR15. The QBZ-191 is chambered in 5.8x42, which the Chinese claim is superior to 5.56. This rifle has 2 other variants with different barrel lengths: the QBZ-192 and the QBU-191. Know your enemies weaponry.

no commie ever called me a nigger
>first glance
unless OP's picture is just wrong that doesn't even resemble a HK416 in any way
barrel, magwell, stock, reciever, gas system, and the thingy behind the rail are all wrong
Furniture and what specific CNC instructions are used to machine the metal doesn't matter much.
Its a 4 lug bolt head, combined with a generic short stroke gas piston + AR15 bolt carrier system. Bolt travels inside a buffer-tube in the stock.
Two odd ball bits, one, the trigger coming from an AK, probably to make it lower profile and make the receiver shorter. And two, using this claw to lock the cam pin in place instead of using the receiver wall like a standard AR pattern.
