    Tu-160 ''The White Swan'' (Blackjack). Jet bomber for nuclear missiles/bombs I guess. Made in Soviet Union in the 1980's by atheist socialists. :)

    No /pol shit here please. That means no driveby shitposting to carry on your feuds from other debates. Keep all of that nonsense contained to the numerous other threads. No LIBERAL/ALT RIGHT conversations that can be handled in the numerous other threads. This is about geopolitical fuck-fuck games causing proxy wars due to the military industrial complex. Not the disinformation and brainwashing used to instigate those events. We are looking at the end results of mind manipulation.
    Thanks.

    The greatest military invention of the Cold War has to be Project Pluto, an american nuclear-powered cruise missile that was basically supposed to be an open nuclear reactor that would propel a large number of thermonuclear warheads to Mach 3 at low altitudes, cruising over the land to deliver the warheads and contaminate the land.
    Oh, and destroy everything in its path with the shockwave from travelling at Mach 3.

    Dude I live next door to Russia. The "Big Thing In The East" is very much still there, whatever you want to call it.

    Comparison of the Russian Armata to the Leopard 2.

    80 cruise missiles in your face. 80 Nukes. 3 or 4 minutes in.

    I enlisted just as those uniforms were phased out. So I ended up with Vietnam, Desert Storm, and OIF uniforms. The Velcro on the ACU's is a bit loud and annoying but the pockets are nice.

    random norsk troops


    I'm probably biased, but I really like our uniforms
    The ladz above are wearing the regular uniform + outdoorsy jacket. The officer in front of them is wearing the lighter shirt afaik, which I prefer.
    Those pants are the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. I had no idea pants could be *so actively comfortable*, but they fucking are. Just amazing pants!

    Not bad. The color scheme is unique. Seems to have more tan.

    Some info about Finnish camos.

    http://camopedia.org/index.php?title=Finland

    Used to wear this when I was in. There were different versions, darker and lighter jackets and trousers. You could mix and match like you're in a fashion show or whatever. This pattern was introduced in -62 so very old, I was in the system in the late 90's. It already felt old then, almost like you start hearing a 60's psychedelic music when you're wearing it and see it, or Shaft's theme song or something. That belt is good, you can buy similar ones online. Someone stole my belt when I was in the swimming hall, fucker.

    The 'vacation suit' was called 'the pickle salad'. It wasn't erotic at all. I didn't have that beret, it was introduced just after our 'class'. It reminded me of Monica Lewinsky so I was happy I didn't have to wear it and identify as the dick-sucker of a POTUS. :D

    The grey suit was better and I sometimes wore it.

    Always thought the winter camos look more badass. Ours was fully white. Now they have these.

    Kidnapping of foreign leaders (Lebanon). Giving the death penalty to women rights activists. 9/11. They're trying to literally cut Qatar off and they’re now torturing, murdering, and dismembering journalists living in foreign countries.

    Saudi Arabia and UAE are still committing wholesale slaughter in Yemen, are forcefully starving civilians in an act considered barbaric even by pre-WW1 standards, have made medical conditions deteriorate in the country so much that diseases eradicated during the 19th century have made a comeback, have completely taken over an island belonging to another country with no Western media coverage, all with the friendly support of the "bastions of freedom" America and UK.

    And this is all without mentioning the slavery both countries practice, the support of radical Islam globally, violating the human rights of women, the racist nature of their countries where citizenship is only granted by blood, and the basic premise that they're countries ruled by Kings.

    It was "pickle relish" actually, lol. Close enough. We had lots of military slang words for army food etc. Macaroni casserole was called the "barbed wire obstacle" etc. :D I still remember some of those. Food was pretty 'light', in that it really didn't fill you up, hungry most of the time there and lost a bunch of weight although I wasn't exactly fat when I went in.

    Yea that journalist gone 'missing' in SA is bad stuff, heard he was tortured really bad, like skinned alive etc. Bad stuff. Saudis are some really bad folks.
