rly the goal should be to reduce allocations of conventional weapons to the battery and freeing up road throughput for moving other things than shells

a single atomic shell is equivalent to like 50-100 rounds of conventional ammunition ):

Which is exactly what the British wanted? If the Pashtuns want to fuck boys and play lacrosse with donkey corpses then let 'em.

Zip fuel missiles. Why don't people bring up zip fuels more? Largely because, despite several millions (if not billions) in research and development as both jet and rocket fuel, no nation has ever successfully utilized a zip fuel. A small amount of research will lead you to the answer that boranes ...

The point is you're not really a "senior officer" if you're driving a Bradley. Or commanding a carrier battlegroup. Or flying an F-16. Which are all things that O-6s and O-7s do fairly regularly. A division commander will probably be close enough to be shot at, but he'll also be far enoug...

? I presume Purp means senior in the sense of O-6 and above, where you’d rarely see combat (if at all) outside of very specific billets. Colonels and brigadiers are pretty explicitly frontline officers. They're very often no more than a couple kilometers from the main battle, if not literally shoot...

I what remember reading about bikes is that 1) Bikes work surprisingly well in combined arms formation with tanks. 2) Bikes are good as long you manage to maintain momentum forward, but bike troops have problems keeping onto their bikes if they're forced to retreat. I think 2 is because soldiers pa...

The doctrine of Swiss bicycle troops was to set up hasty defenses of towns and villages. Over distances of less than 50 km they were found quicker to deploy than motorized or mechanized equivalents. Note that like many other European (or non-US in general) countries Switzerland has an excellent net...

No, it was because they couldn't talk to the howitzers they needed to actually kill all the Japanese, because someone cut their wire with a trench shovel or something. The ambush was fairly poorly timed and a few Japanese troops slipped out of the catchment and snuck around to cut the field wire. Li...

Isp has nothing to do with speed. If you have infinite fuel, you have infinite speed, no matter your specific impulse. It's a measure of fuel economy. Bloodhound is worse than Kub because it has six quite efficient engines compared to Kub's single quite efficient engine. This is pretty obvious from ...

Why are you trying to dodge and weave with bike under fire, instead of leaving it behind goodwhile before you even start firing? The Japanese were ambushed at least once in close combat by Anglo-Australian ground troops in Malaya. Half the bike company was blown up on a bridge and the other half wa...

You ride it tho so it's fine. The only time you're carrying it is when you're fording a river or sth. 60+ lbs 1940s bicycles didn't stop the IJA why would it stop a modern army unless they're less physically fit I guess? This is not a rhetorical question . I'm not actually sure what a modern bike co...

Parking lots are lava. You're not wrong but they're still useful since they give you an alternative that is actually viable. Foot bound infantry will also be stealing cars too, after all, but there might not be enough cars for them to use and then they might have to shuttle around like the Rag-Tag C...

As opposed to a $5 million missile sinking a $2 billion ship? The difference there is that you have other options for the tanks that make the exchange far less extreme. You kinda can't make a Guided Missile Destroyer smaller. LPD-17 is $2 billion. T-ESDs are like $400 million. The Zubr battalion ca...
