Re: So, what's up with immigrants?

There is something amusing about Europe dealing with hordes of immigrants after so many years of Europeans trying to lecture the US about immigration and why we shouldn't enforce our immigration laws and just let anybody in. You want to turn hundreds of thousands of refugees into model citizens to m...

Re: eurofighter typhoon

But muh aerodynamics. But muh internal fuel. But muh radar and weapons systems. Ie Tomcat is the 2nd best 4th gen option to Flanker. Not certain if you are criticizing the F-15 or F-14 but F-14 was hamstrung by having the wrong engine for most of its career. The TF30 meant it was somewhat underpowe...

Re: German Army discovers that G36 is not accurate after firing

Build more MG3s. It's a classic and to replace it would be just as sacrilegious as the US ever managing to replace the .50 caliber M2.

One of the joys of military bureaucracy I'd presume. At this rate maybe by 2040 it will be fielded.

Re: Su-35s for Indonesia

Seems like an awfully big fighter for Indonesia. Why do they need all of that range?

Re: #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

Errr, this bit especially, no, you do know those were false flag attempts (again!) with editing to make it look that way, right? What they do is sell the remains for research then use said money to fund themselves more and less from taxpayers not go out hunting "for profit" in the sense t...

Re: New norwegian CV90s

That RCWS is pretty high profile for the CV9030s. Something with a lower height would have probably been better.

I don't think the turret on the center variant is new, it just has applique armor like on the CV9030NF1s used in Afghanistan.

Re: A cool unit lost to time the US S-67 helicopter gunship
