It's black powder, anon. He would need nitrocellulose to get smokeless one. It can be made using acids and sometimes bought as ping pong balls, for example. But i only know that much about it, i have never worked with it personally or with powder made from it. There are single base powders so you do not necessarily need to play with nitroglycerine. You have to do your own research.

Chlorine gas is created when you open the bleach bottle. Boiling it doesn't "create" it, it simply accelerate the natural evaporation of chlorine as chlorine wants to be a gas and doesn't like being a liquid.

^ with these two, you have yourself a decent setup for $68.30 (pouches not included).

I would then suggest dropping by your local disposal store and buying 4x Minimi pouches, if the price is lower than on the site, but if not:

>https://www.platatac.com/platatac-minimi-pouch-heavy-weight.html

$35 ea x4 =$140

… So for a total of $208.30 you'll have a full setup capable of carrying up to 800rds (in theory). The only other thing you'll need is some large zip-ties and paracord to attach them firmly to your rig. You even get free shipping because your order is over $200.

You could even grab 2x of these to keep a multitool and torch in:

> http://www.platatac.com/platatac-small-universal-pouch-mk2-6183.html

…for $12 each atm.

For the contents, inspire yourself either with my kit list here>>600808 , or look up what soldiers carried in WW2, Vietnam, etc. and adapt it to your needs.

Oh, and always carry a dry set of spare socks in your webbing, sealed inside a couple of tough ziplock bags.

If yes then you've got a tainted pair. If not then wash them very thoroughly and enjoy your milsurp.


97e15c No.601649

Most chemical agents aren't stable in the atmosphere for that long. V and G series nerve agents don't have a long shelf life, especially if not synthed with very low impurities. Older agents are more volatile and should be completely gone, but in the worst case, washing with alcohol, or gasoline if you are feeling extra retarded, in a well ventilated environment should do the trick.

Regardless, if we haven't heard any stories of the people handling milsurp getting poisoned you shouldn't worry.

>do not aspire to purchase the tanks of “Armata” in large quantities

Big mistake IMO. The biggest, if not only, advantage of the armata chassis is in the logistics since commonality that allows you to make all your armed forces armata-based.

btw my question towards tankfags cause I hardly have a clue on the subject:

Why isn't the armata multi-role chassis a good idea? How much can a generalist chassis design compromise the performance of different specialized treaded vehicles?


f8cc96 No.601614

>>601576

The engine and drivetrain in most modern AFVs is modular, right? Not 'modular' in the sense of 'its just like LEGO, i can mix and match parts', but in the sense of 'unscrew four bolts, lift the whole assembly out, set it aside for repair, drop in a new unit and go'.

Having one chassis that can do everything with mix-and-match add-ons seems like something the Good Idea Fairy came up with. I guess we'll see how it plays out. In my mind, if you really wanted to maximize ease of repair and logistics, you'd turn as many critical systems as possible into plug-and-play assemblies, and then make those assemblies commonalities to all of your vehicles. So even if you have dedicated chassis for your APCs, IFVs, MBTs, AA, et al, they all use the same motor, the same turret ring, the same suspension bogies, and so forth.

>Why isn't the armata multi-role chassis a good idea?

I see no reason why it wouldn't be a good idea. Unlike planes, you can get away with just bolting stuff onto tanks without impacting their overall performance too much, although ships are the true kings of that. If you want a truly modular system, then you should do this:

>1st tier: frontline armour

It has to take enemy direct and indirect fire head on. Basically something like the Armata, just with even more modular armour. It comes with enough armour to withstand the autocannons of more common potential enemy IFVs, but you can armour it up against MBTs.

>2nd tier: frontline support

This should be like a lenghtened chassis of the previous vehicle that has a system to pick up and drop shipping containers. Of course it can carry supplies too, but you can continerize heavy mortars, MRLSs, AA guns, EW systems, command posts, and many more things. You could even use them as APCs with the right containers. So it's to replace vehicles that might get targeted by enemy artillery and possible their vanguard too, but normally they shouldn't directly engage the enemy.

>3rd tier: the second line

Trucks that carry shipping containers, nothing revolutionary here.

>4rd tier: light vehicles

The modern equivalent of jeeps, and also whatever memevehicles the special needs forces like to use nowadays.

>>601614

Vid related, you could put one into a truck and a dozen into a tank.

Hmm, yes I've heard some bad reviews about Bark River, although fanboys always say that their lifetime warranty will offset any mistakes. But if they're fucking up their tempering/heat treating then I'll stay well away.

The LT Wright knives like the Genesis come in flat grind, although their handles are micarta. Still it's not an ugly micarta per se. And I found one page selling the LTW Genesis with a beautiful wood handle, albeit for a rather painful price. How do they hold up?

I'm really stuck on the need for a rosewood/desert ironwood/dark red wood handle on my knife. I've considered some of the custom makers on the bushcraftusa forums. Adventure Sworn makes a lot of beautiful wood scaled knives, although their prices might be a bit too painful to bear and I don't spy a flat grind in their stock. Are you familiar with any custom makers and their work quality?

You'd think it wouldn't be so hard to find

>Wood scaled

>Flat grind

>Top tier high-carbon steel

>Simple spear point/drop point, no goofy shapes

Is there at least a micarta handled knife that looks like wood?

Another question: How do all the high carbon steels hold up to each other? The LT Wright Genesis uses A2 and the vaunted Spyderco uses O1 steel, how do they compare to the 10 series like 1075-1095? What's a good tierlist?

Fanboys say a lot of things. It'd be one thing if it were a minor defect, but we're talking about full-convex knives that can't cut through a chopstick without sustaining tremendous edge damage. Couple that with boxy handles that wear into your hands and you've got a serious problem. Shame, too. I really like their 1909 Michigan Bowie.

It's not as hard as you may think. Have you considered Andy Roy's work over at Fiddleback Forge? The Recluse in particular is a great blade. There are lots of good makers who retrofit blades with new material. Sunrise Custom Knives is one. Survival Tactics was another until they closed their doors. Justin Gingrich from Ranger Knives did them on occasion. I'm going to take an Ontario 12" machete to get it rehandled with natural canvas micarta.

I don't have any infographics at the moment, but googling "knife steel guide" pulls up decent pages. That's not much of an offering, I realize, but what you're asking for is a question that requires a big and dedicated response, and most of the top results there can answer that.

Good luck.

All I have is a Sanrenmu 7010 and Victorinox Huntsman. Have no use for a fixed blade at the moment.

while in the same breath

<i will only privately sell to you if you're older than 21 (even if it's a rifle and shotgun)

<i will also require a bill of sale with just as much info on a ATF 4473

I believe I am the glowing government man you've been looking for, sir.

anon-kun where did you save that? considering the filename, you didn't have it for as long as I have. I don't remember where I uploaded it but I remember uploading it somewhere on this site. it's interesting to me that I'll upload an image I haven't seen in ages, and then magically see some other anon post it….

I have a handgun that I bought when I lived in TX, but can't get any new one in NC since my sheriff has a bad history of not approving handgun permits and don't really want to get a NC carry license since I'm moving in less than a year and don't want to have to get another. Ignore my flag, in Keflovick airport on a layover

It's not perfect, but then what is? I'd have to experience a winter firsthand before I'm more than a wistful LARPer, but if I could stomach it I might decide to live there.

I don't think it's all milk, but a fair amount of it. Economy of scale probably makes it cheaper to fly/ship it in than starting a ranch, but I'm no expert so don't take my word as gospel.


f40ed6 No.601640

>>601637

Economy of scale might lower the prices, but it does not mean that starting a ranch is impossible. There might be better things to invest into, but i highly doubt that it would not pay off in time. they have industrial equipment, but have to ship all the products, while you have less products produced for given time/work, but do not have to do the shipping, so unless you put more resources in than you can get profit out of final product, which is unlikely as the technology does not give as big advantage in here as it does with other industries, you would be fine.

Unless the products cost almost as much as the materials for them, you can make profit of them. This profit might be impossibly small, but it can be done. If you make guns, unless you spend more on metal than you can get from selling a gun, it's profitable, technically.

Ranch requires little resources, few tools and the main investment is land, so it can be profitable anywhere people live, theoretically.

There are moose in Alaska so why not breed them for milk?


4714f7 No.601647

>>601645

Highland cattle are actually similarly cold hardy like mooses, they also have very tasty (fat rich) milk. also, i think if you fuck around with a female moose (a moose cow?) you'll have hyper aggressive bull mooses trying to charge you down.

Now that even the USAF has recognized the F-35 as a meme what would you like to see coming out of the the F-15X proposal?

I just want to see mass production F-15 S/MTDs finally enter active service after all this time, the lack of canards among US military aircraft in CY+3 is a crime against aesthetics.

The funniest thing is that it had as much trouble to take off as it had to land with its pilot intact. Probably the only plane in history with which landing was easier than lift-off.

> most energy lost by T/V is from creating an angle between propulsory force and the aircraft's moving trajectory.

This loss is much larger than drag loss from aerodynamic surfaces. Wings (stabilizers are wings too) have lift-to-drag ratio in the 10 range. In worst case in the 4-5 range. That means aerodynamic surfaces creates 4-5 units of drag per 1 unit of rage. In worst case, mostly higher. With TVC at 30 degrees angle you create 3.7 units of 'lift" (side thrust) per 1 unit of lost forward thrust.

Yes but aerodynamic drag increases dramatically with speed, especially from transonic forward while tv is not affected, and more importantly, tv is performing pretty much consistently at every angle of attack without losing its control with stalls. That said, having thrust vectoring on default combat maneuvering is probably not a good idea but it can be invaluable for defensive maneuvering and opportunistic openings, just put a tv-enabling pinkie-button in the HOTAS controls.

>Yes but aerodynamic drag increases dramatically with speed

Lift increases dramatically too. So you need less deflection of stabilizer to achieve same lift (control authority). Ratio between produced lift and drag is … lift-to-drag ratio.

>stalls

This is only where TVM is really useful

>A-10

>escapes surface to air missiles on the regular

The US has only had to bomb targets with their A-10s under the luxury of nigh-complete air supremacy, against targets with literally no surface to air capabilities (besides pointing their DshKs upwards). As much as grunts cheer it on for its ability to kill goat herders for them, the A-10 is fucked against a modern IADS that hasn't been degraded.
