On the topic of poorly designed tanks, is it possible that some current trends in tanknology are actually really bad ideas, but we just haven't figured it out yet? There are plenty of poor design ventures in the history of tanking - to cherry pick an example, having two-man turrets before reliable a...

Would a military hospital constitute valid target? No. If it is clearly marked as a hospital(e.g. this is hard to mistake, even from the air) then purposefully attacking it would constitute a breach in the laws of war. While edgy NSers might not like the laws of war, breaking them opens you up to r...

Question about Space Engineers. Last time I played it sometime last year, it had gotten an update that made it almost impossible to play on my computer. Extremely slow FPS, the response time to control inputs was almost a second, which made me really sad because it is a fun game. At first I thought ...

Is there a defined list of things that soldiers during the Napoleonic Wars had in their rucksacks?

Why did the US choose to move onto the 90mm from the 76mm? The shells are roughly the same length, with the 90mm being considerably wider due to having shoulders, so why didn't they just give the 76mm a more powerful charge by making the case wider instead? It was overall a more powerful gun. The t...

The average person would freeze up and do nothing, or repeat an action mechanically, at that level of stress. There's nothing instinctual about picking up a rifle and running it through a person. There's everything instinctual about repeating an action you've done a hundred times before, like reloa...

In the Napoleonic Wars and Seven Years' War, how many volleys between regular infantry formations were exchanged before one or both sides charged? From my readings, massed bayonet fights between two large infantry formations almost never happened, although small-scale bayonet fights were relatively...

The Sherman and T-34 were not the equal of the Panther. You're right, the Sherman wasn't. It was better. In some ways. The Panther was invulnerable to most Sherman guns at point-blank range; the only gun that had a hope of reliably penetrating the Panther's glacis was the 17pdr, and the Americans h...

I don't RP in NS, and being based on Prussia I wouldn't have a navy even if I wanted one. More concerned with military history. On Napoleonic-era Royal Marines - was the Brown Bess that they used ever criticized for being too long? AFAIK the bayonet alone was ~17", the Sea Service Pattern muske...

Royal Marines seem to get the most press, at least in the books and novels that I read. From what I've heard they were just as important in terms of keeping order on the ship as they were in boarding actions and defending from those. Sam Willis' book The Fighting Temeraire has an excellent section o...

How did the Panther blow the Soviets away(pun)? Their debut at Kursk was mediocre to put it lightly. Maybe by 44 they were better produced but fuel problems and crew inexperience made them just as unreliable.

For a while it was pretty normal to be what we'd call a wehraboo, grossly misrepresenting how good German vehicles were and how bad allied vehicles were. Now, it seems to be shifting in the opposite direction which is just as annoying. Maybe in some more time there will be a balanced view. For examp...

The T-34 was neither an exceptionally fantastic tank nor a horrible death trap. In the beginning it suffered from huge issues that any new tank faces excaberated by the fact that the USSR had been invaded. The Soviets took a good long look at what they had to work with and played their cards very we...

Could you get a functional vehicle by mounting the turret off an AMX-13-105 on to the hull of a T-34? I doubt it. The T-34-100 was a ridiculous design alone. Putting an AMX turret is basically giving yourself a less capable chassis(prewar chassis and postwar turret?) with a turret not for the tank ...

The Spartans were probably the ultimate example of a tribal society, an entire civilization geared toward producing physicall...
