the T-100 isn't remotely similar to the Armata, it's much closer to the T-95 Black Eagle
The M5A2 Schwarzkopf isn't remotely similar to the Abrams X demonstrator, it's an entirely new hull and not an Abrams upgrade

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.

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.

i have that book and another few on my shelf, there is a lot of hearsay on this crash, its best to have every idea to work from.

My personal idea on the crash of 075 is that one or more of the crew actually attempted to land the stricken bomber somewhere inland in BC, they were never going to get home to Alaska. Some have suggested New Aiyansh but they went way past that settlement. The more likely choice was the coast flatlands where highway 37 now passes. Its heavily forested, but flat with many wide swamps that could have allowed a landing. I believe, that the crew was issued a live pit, and they did their best to get the pit back to safety, either dropping the bomb in the sea, or if the bomb bays were inoperable as a number of people have speculated, the bomb its self may have rested on that mountain until it was discovered and detonated without its pit, accounting for the utterly massive blast heard and seen around 1955.

>>61035060
the photos are from an EOD tech friend i know from a long time ago, who i met when dealing with a massive amount of unused explosives on a mine clean up job in the early 2000s. The guy was totally obsessed with 075, especially the second bird cage that was never relocated. The first was found in a private collection, looted from the crash site in the early 90s, the second showed up in multiple pictures from the 80s EOD cleanup work, but was never relocated since.

We likely will never know the complete story of what went down that fateful night.

Logistically speaking, was it worth the investment for the Japanese? Did its construction help cement their hold on Burma or did it simply suck down resources, soldiers, and slave laborers that would have been put to better use elsewhere? Why was it dismantled right after the war if it had a clear economic benefit?

I ask because it didn't seem to help the Japanese in their efforts to conquer Northern India or hold Burma when the Allies went on the offensive in late-1944 and they continued to suffer the same supply problems that plagued them in other threatres.

Also, /k/ railway thread I guess.

I only train the only possible engagement range il ever see.
Barrel in my mouth.
I usually use just those red training rounds but ive begun to move to primed but empty casings so it simulates the real deal.
I read on a gun forums that people who do similar training use co2 and piston driven air guns so the cost per shot is less than that of a primer.
Ive considered getting a suppressor and use primed casings so i could train indoors at my home.
The nearest range is 10 miles away and every time i train there some boomer comes up to me and yells something about what the hell im doing.
Fuck, i hate rangefudds so much, and the range has also recently banned steel cased ammo because the owners son who took over is a brass jew.

>Admiral Fukyu Niggah was born in 1880 in a fishing village near Nagasaki. He was born into an ancient samurai clan called "Kuru Krux."
>From a young age he was determined to serve in the Imperial Navy and was accepted into the naval academy, where his excellent grasp of the tea ceremony and ability to bow much lower than anybody else ensured his fast graduation.
>At the age of 17 he served in the Navy during the Russo-Japanese War and distinguished himself during the Battle of Tsushima by sinking the Russian cruiser Vranya with a single torpedo that struck the vodka storage.
>His career was mostly uneventful afterwards until the '20s, when he fell in with the hyper-militaristic crowd.
>After coups and government restructuring, Adm. Fukyu Niggah was assigned command of the 7th Fleet in the war against China.
>He distinguished himself again by his numerous war crimes near Shanghai, including the infamous "Night of 1,000,000 Rapes" for which he was awarded the Order of the Heavenly Katana.
>In 1940 as diplomacy with America broke down, he was called to several meetings in Tokyo to discuss the feasibility of war with America. During one of these meetings, after Adm. Yamamoto remarked that Japan had no real chance of victory, Adm. Fukyu Niggah flew into a violent rage.

No, it was fully fledged civil war. Outside involvement and multiple factios are par for course. The Whites were uncoordinated and mostly acted as independent commands per theatre, but that's what you get when the fronts are separated by thousands of kilometers without reliable communication.

The S stands for "Sparrow" as it was converted into an AIM-7 truck. The only difference I'm aware of, aside avionics, which improved over the years with all the upgrades (ASA and then ASA/M), was the more powerful engine from the get go. Also, italian Starfighters were locally produced under license, except the first initial batch of 104G that were used for the initial pilot training. I mean as an elevator to space and as missile trucking go, it's perfect.
