Pray tell me why RSTA units shouldn't have organic mortars? Because directing mortar fire itself requires RSTA. An RSTA unit that is pre-occupied with finding targets for its own weapons and/or coordinating its own movements is no longer doing much for the larger force. RSTA units should be net pro...

If hunting bunnies, sure a .223 is fine, but for human size targets and fighting humans with other humans, this is ideal cartridge size for controllable power ranges that humans can control. A big lie in the truest sense. A It's only arbitrary in so far that humans prefer cartridges with those reco...

It probably isn't too wrong to conceptualize the Soviet economy as a single massive corporation headed by the board of the Politburo. Lenin was an enterprising founder in the vein of Steve Jobs/Henry Ford. Stalin was Jeff Immelt and the purges were a vitality curve. The Nomenklatura being the MBAs. ...

Semiconductors are fragile devices so it's not super surprising the USSR struggled with them even if the specific reasons are a bit obscure. A significant downside of a totalitarian system is excessive criticism of anything except other individuals can be and probably will be interpreted as a critic...

for their respective weights/recoil forces. Which were chosen as a basically arbitrary point between the 7.62x51mm and 5.56x45mm. If you cherry-pick the characteristics of 6-mm intermediate cartridges as the measurement of ideal then yes you prove they are the ideal cartridges. But then all you are...

The issue is it fits within the realms of what people normally use, intermediate to full sized rifle levels of power. The 7.62mm bullets have to be too big and the 5.56mm are too small or ineffective. The 6mm to 6.5mm is around perfect, and a number of studies, tests, and of course anecdotal pieces...

Sectional density rises with calibre because the density of materials is basically a constant. Barrel twist is more or less whatever you want it to be, the only absolute limit is on L/D ratio, but this is essentially size-independent. 6mm bullets have the same L/D limitations as 7.62mm and 5.56mm bu...

Calibre doesn't have a significant effect on the drag of a bullet. All things being equal in fact, larger calibres will always have lower drag coefficients because of the square-cube relationship. The only reason 6.5 and 6 mm rounds tend to stand out is they generally permit longer bullets to be loa...

Can this be related to say resolution capability of their respective Satellite ? Be it Optical, radar or ESM. Well, no. That would be something like trying to measure "seapower" in terms of the calibre of battleship guns. It is a metric. Not a super useful one by itself. Can they see it? ...

Most NS (and real) wanks about "muh militia" miss the point entirely because they hinge on little more than arming people en mass. Like the Volksturm. And hoping this will translate into a viable and effective resistance movement. Unlike the Volksturm. In states which are highly consolidat...

How much thing Suvorov said is true, and how mmuch is shit? Some (not all) of his facts are correct. None of his interpretations are trustworthy, even when they might be true, because he liberally made shit up when he needed to reach a given conclusion.

It would be cutting-edge as an rifleman's weapon in WW1 and a bit quaint but hardly obsolete in WW2 - considering most riflemen fought WW2 with bolt-action rather than self-loading rifles in reality.
