What equipment and vehicles would a real-life and modernized knight use? What would a modern day knight even look like?

Actually spot on, in fact it happened pretty much in a literal sense in WW1.
a good, sturdy helmet
an excellent breastplate with reasonable weight
almost like the exact type of shit modern soldiers still use
We almost saw knights in modern combat. Samurai were remarkably similar to knights in terms of their social status and military roles. Their weaponry in the Boshin War and the Satsuma rebellion was essentially the most modern rifles, muskets or carbines they could get their hands on with typical samurai garb.

They have that, it's called a Namer.
it seems like a pretty good design and im baffled why other nations dont do the same thing.
It looks real fucking sexy. I'll give it to the JOOS, they make sexy weapons.
I don’t think this is accurate

That looks like a beeg fire captain. Considering it was most certainly producing steel for war effort, how fucked are Russian weapon production capabilities? Also do we know the damage assessment?

What you are doing is the same reason that I have almost 30k rounds of 5.45. I kept finding private parties selling 5.45 for cheaper than the current online retail costs of any other centerfire rifle cartridge. Everyone kept saying “it’s a dead caliber” so I prioritized buying it.
I’m using one on my Beryl. It has held up very well for two range trips and 500ish rounds so far. Think of it as a TWS Dogleg knockoff because that’s what it mostly is.

During the entire Russian invasion of Ukraine, has there been a single case of several planes from either side, flying in formation, even once? Closest one I can think of is that Russian helicopter raid over the lake during the early days, but much like all the footage of tanks rolling out into the open by themselves, the planes seem to also fly alone or very rarely, in pairs at most.
What's the reason for this?
I read that it's caused by a lack of training and flight hours on the Russian side at least.

What's with eyetalians and riveted armor? Surely they must've known what a terrible idea that is
34 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Rivets break easily and the entire plate can fall off. Moreover, the shreds of the rivets function as projectiles bouncing inside the tank and can hit the crew like they were bullets
Rivets on a battleship are inconsequential since an explosion isn't propelling them into the citadel. With a tank... not so much.
Italy was farmer country until the Marshall plan. Now it's half European, and half criminal.
if the rivet takes less force to break then it takes to pen the armor plate it is holding on. It can break sending the bit of rivet inside of the armor to bounce around the hull fucking up people and equipment.
what >>61035741 said
Those rivets where also hot bolted on so you can't even undo them in the field so it's not like to can unbolt a broken or penetrated plate and replace it
all those down sides for a bit of ease in manufacture. But once you have competent welders it's not even al that cheaper/easier to rivet instead of weld
hey the south isn't all criminal
Italy is half european, 1 quarter criminal and 1 quarter on the dole for 3 generations straight.

I still don't understand how Russia can still be using the Grad as their most common rocket artillery in 2023.

Even the smallest faction in the Afghan civil war had a battery of BM-27 Uragans in 1993 (and Scud missiles but the commie trained operators ran off when they captured them so they couldn't fire them)

Not that hard bros. That's how I open 7.62x39, x54r, and 5.45.

Well they didnt because they run out of Grad ammo in the year 2023 (and all other MRLS ammo).

There's a lot of them. Keltec is just known for holy shit all the screws. Clamshell designs = lots of screws.

I like the Volquartsen hammer kit but I almost wish I would've just picked up a BX after feeling some in person. $30-40 vs like 70-90 though. But really it didn't matter because hunting doesn't exactly need a featherlight trigger. It's a small improvement. I'm sure either complete trigger group from those two companies would be fine. I never tried either complete groups because $$$.

Fuck me I just have too many. But I don't know what I want to let go. If I sell a Saiga 12, I will never see it again for example. Selling rifles is less traumatic since I can buy those whenever, but also the space they take up. Have you ever downsized your collection to bare essentials?

Haven't been on /k/ for quite some time, anons. Can we have a SHTF scenario? I know nothing ever happens, but I believe I would be a failure as a father if I wasn't prepared. I use to be insane as a prepper around 10 years ago, but I was in a financial struggle that caused me to lose it all. I want to get back into it and would like if anyone has any copypasta to slap for this thread. With movies such as Leave The World Behind and another Civil War movie coming out soon, we may just have some bs around the corner.

Don't think "I will hunt food".
Think "I will FISH my food". Fishing is way more reliable and safe way of getting food than hunting. To the point that even children can do it.

Having a small fishing kit should be part of your survival kit, and some proper rods, fishtraps and maybe a couple of nets should be part of your bug-out location equipment. This obviously depends on your location, but I would SERIOUSLY recommend getting a bug-out location or a cabin somewhere with low population density and fishing waters nearby.

Remember that your stone age ancestors survived mostly by getting close to fresh waters and getting to fishing. There are numerous folk saying like "In the time of failed harvests, your livelihood is in fishing".

Obviously gardening, farming and foraging are on the list, but fishing should be much higher on that list than hunting.
I keep thinking this is why you make a big ass pond, needs to be big enough to survive a hot summer but you can keep your own fish, even small fish can be used as bait
Seconding this.
Gore-Tex bivouacs are also a good investment. Normally I'd say Gore-Tex is a waste of money, but this is the exception because you don't want condensation on your sleeping bag.
One trick I've heard is to pop one of those solar garden lights so it overhangs the pond slightly to attract moths and other critters for your fish to eat.
what a clever idea, I'll have to steal that

No I mean if that's the penultimate then what is the ultimate? Penultimate means second to last, you can't say the penultimate one is now the ultimate one, that's like saying the guy that came in second place is now first place

congrats OP you fixed it
It makes sense though - while such cutlass is great at everything, it is fairly easy to find weapons that perform much better than that in their individual niches. You have vines to chop? Get a machete. You want to stab someone? Get a rapier.

Didn't Colt make a bunch of double stack 1911 prototypes in the 60s and 70s and the Military said no thanks?
I don't think that it would've stopped it anyway. 45 was never going to be the standard round because the bongs, frogs, and dagoes had already picked 9mm. Also, S&W had already introduced the Model 39 in the 50s and was popular amongst law enforcement by the 60s.

Today is the 33rd anniversary of the Battle of 73rd Easting. What made the Abrams so deadly?
135 replies and 21 images omitted. Click here to view.
It was down to America having a technological edge and AirLand Battle being the fucking tits. If you go into detail for the various battles you will quickly see that for the most part the Iraqi's positioned themselves really well - on a number of times on reverse slopes to negate the US range advantage.

The air campaign mogged their command and control and destroyed their freedom of movement. The ground game was ez because of better sensors (and advantage the US still enjoys over Russian equipment).

If you plopped a US armored corps and supporting air assets they would melt the Russians in the same way they did the Iraqi's... its just the air campaign would be longer and would involved a significant number of shootdowns (initially). Even that, shootdowns, I doubt because the US has the unique ability to spam cruisemissiles and saturate the fuck out of your AAD.

>If you plopped a US armored corps and supporting air assets they would melt the Russians in the same way they did the Iraqi's...
The problem is that the Russian military is corrupt and incompetent just like an Arab army. So basically your argument is void because you're not actually changing the variables.
the stab and optics
the gun is meh, the ammo is what delivers
the engine is thirsty
everything else seems solid
The abrams is a good tank but the obvious tit-for-tat bullshit this thread is part of in response to the destroyed example in Ukraine is embarrassing.
