Now they look like rolling fences with all the anti RPH cadges on them
Do the men in the field like any of the light armor options? How has the MRAP been received?
TBH I was a light fighter i liked the 1157 HMMWVS
The MRAPS are great but suck for Iraq do to how narrow the roads are
A lot of places they can't go
So you have to dismount Outsode the town and go in on foot
They are massive. They're put together here in South Carolina, down in Ladson.
Really a war that should never have been fought.
My best friend - also a Patrick, and still a Marine - fought through the whole battle of Nasiriyah right at the beginning of the war. He said it was the most miserable two weeks imaginable.
Stryker > sdkfz 251
I dunno, man. There's nothing like the 251/16. The only thing better than flammenwerfer? Flammenwerfer x 2! Amirite?
Ever ridden in one? Lol
What about a stern panzer
Well, no. That would be a once-in-a-lifetime affair.
You know some militaries still use the Sd.Kfz it is a modernized version but Romania , Fhe Chezec republic , Hungry and some of the Balkans nations still use them
I knew Hungary, but not the others. That's awesome. Yeah, the Balkans love their German weapons. It's the last place still using 7.92x57 ("8mm Mauser") in any quantity. Which is a shame, because it's a damn good round. I have one of the Egyptian contract FN-49 rifles chambered for it.
Gotta get your reenact on son
Features StuGs and a couple 251/16s.
We had trucks too lol
No shit. So you do the Bulge show at Indiantown Gap?
Those pics are from the Reading airshow and Fort Indiantown Gap event
Haven't reenacted in a couple years though
Nice. I'm actually originally from Scranton, and went back there for my undergraduate work.
I'm from Baltimore originally but PA is Eden compared to MD
Well, I can't speak from experience. "The Wire" is all that's been necessary to keep me clear of Charm City.
When I was young we did live smack in the middle of Philadelphia, which was fine. But later, my dad had to work in West Philly, which was not.
The wire is an accurate depiction of the ghetto. White areas are safe or were. Since the riots (that I joy rided through) the niggers have been spilling over since the cops don't give a damn after being thrown under the bus
We later moved out to Bryn Mawr, and he even did a rotation at Geisinger, so we lived in Danville for half a year.
Exactly. I'm familiar with several long-serving members of our local law enforcement here around Columbia, SC, and they are unanimous in expressing their frustration at the knowledge that they can't actually police because no one up the chain of command will have their back. They're also utterly disgusted by the defeatist, lazy, and plea-happy, if not downright catch-and-release prosecutors.
These are men who felt a calling to their work (most after their military service, to boot), and can't believe what a mockery the institution to which they long ago chose to dedicate their lives has become.
It's sort of like a more compact, intense version of what I think all of us truly red-pilled feel.
I guarantee 9/10 White cops are either WN or sympathetic
I'm from a cop family and all my kin are sympathetic to us
