Weapons of Today

Postby Knuckle » Fri Sep 26, 2014 4:43 pm

Thought this would be an interesting subject as I stumbled across some links on various weaponry.

Playing With Rockets

The Gazza's Arsenal is a video showing the rockets they use on Israel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbuYTCeop-4
The sad thing about this is these rockets have no aiming capability at all. They are definitely weapons of terrorism as the use of such a weapon is equivalent to putting a hungry shark into a swimming pool full of people...someone is going to get hurt but no no knows who! I can understand that these folks have little to use in their own defense, but they must realize that using weapons such as this gives Israel reason to continue killing them.
Wikipedia defines these rockets http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qassam_rocket
They include data on costs and their fuels, limits and dimensions. This is interesting but also presents a path for other terrorists to follow without as much trial and error, thus maybe a bad idea...

Now Israel has this Iron Dome system in place to counter some of these rockets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3NLuD8kA10
That is a weapon that saves lives....can't say there are many of them these days!

this is only reflecting my own opinion
i dont know whats wrong whit palestinian homemade missil ... they do what they can afford
if american want sell them patriot missil maybe ? but american selling weaponry to israel not to palestinian
there 20 palestinian killed for one isreali
whats the worst to me its the fact isreal is able and has all resourse weapon and staff needed to invade and definitely invade and terminate palestinian reing since the last 15 years
but no they dont want finish this war but sing cease fire threaty twice a years" pure hypocrisy"
i hate our canadian prime minister giving support and pact of protection to israel , even usa didnt have protection pact whit them thats weird
to me israel are war criminal and palestinian are victim

This conflict came from the intercommunal violence in Mandatory Palestine between Jews and Arabs from 1920 and erupted into full-scale hostilities in the 1947–48 civil war. The conflict continues to the present day on various levels <-- wikipedia

I concur with your reasoning that they are outgunned, but to commit random killing is not an alternative in my books. That just gives Israel more provocation to kill Palestinians while attempting to kill Homos.

I agree too that Canada shouldn't have anything to do with this war either. The whole concept of a Holy war is twisted...a Holy war should be when God or Allah strikes against the ill-doers of mankind, not man committing murder in the name of their god. Any priest that even blesses men before a battle is likely committing a sin according to most faiths. This is why only the priests were allowed to read scripture during the dark ages...so they could mislead the public into believing their god condoned them killing the enemy. Today's excuse is that most Americans don't really read enough scriptures to truly be God fearing folk... while at least many Canadian's admit they no longer are God fearing or believers.

But this thread was to be about weapons that are used today in battle. My attempt above was to maybe compare the weak against the strong, and the bad weapon against the unlikely possibility of a good one. It also still proves the theory once again that guns don't kill, only people do!

i agree killing innocent israeli isnt nice at all
Fundamentally modern war are ridiculously wrong , how can you think doing war and stay politically correct
for example if you are israeli and me palestinian then u kill my family but not me , who do you thing ur son gona have to fight on next generation
wen they try to be acceptable by selecting their target they make the next generation growing in anger in a spirit vindicative just by let them alive
temujin also know has genghis khan couldnt have conquer so much country if he didnt killed woman child and dogs then burn all town , these population would have raise agaisnt him and stab hes back same happening whit isis and american or the french ressitance on ww2
but today in 2014 we try to make civilised war and save few soul to fight on next generation
the main problem are the religion it make people stupid and smarter one use them to fight in their own interest
someone said the american christian are not violent but the islam are violent .... i think it totaly wrong
maybe american christian dosnt wear bomb belt but sending their sons overseas to fight ...

sorry if i shooked people whit my sharp opinion but to me its the way they teach me at officer school..
its not a game of chess wen u kill the queen u win and its over.. every soldider remaining on enemy side will remain enemy for ever and more motivated to kill you somehow
like for example afghanistan , even if you kill all taliban their son will hate you forever and will seek for vengeance eventualy
at war there are only 1 rules and this rules said : there are no rules ..
while i seen some country like israel bashing on poor civilization blowing down civilian building of 13 story and killin 86 innocent just to kill one hamas leader hidden on this building
to me thats pure war crime
they want make war whit parameter rule like Geneva Conventions or any older Law of War but this is totaly insane and wrong , i can give you hundred of example
the first one come to my head its the Red Cross .. did you know the Red Cross is the biggest spy agency of all time ?
they have spy from every country and have acces to everywhere in the world whitout regulation , they are also the first walking on battlefield and have unlimited acces to restricted area
so what they provide all the best purpose for the spies
but red cross are nice guys healing wounded and poor people right ?
ok il stop there because i wont start a debate once again im sorry whit my sharp opinion , has sword master we used to say sharp blade must remain on their sheath..

thats not canadian mentality

Here is a summary of weapons you might find of interest :

- US Armed Forces Small arms . http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/List_of_weapo ... med_Forces
- US weapons and equipment http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equipment_ ... tates_Army

- Canadian Forces Small arms http://www.casr.ca/101-army-smallarm-4.htm
- weapons and equipment used by Canada http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_in ... n_military

- Russian Weapons and equipment http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_eq ... und_Forces
- even some extras things from those tricky Russians http://www.popularmechanics.com/technol ... we-respect

- current equipment of Iraq army http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cu ... Iraqi_Army
- ISIS military equipment http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... diers.html
Most articles only show ISIS has stolen other countries military equipment, but none show that they have purchased or possess any real high tech equipment yet. Showing the Iraq army 's equipment shows what ISIS could also maybe possess as they occupied some of their regions.

Ukraine vs Russia

Now both sides seem to agree that battling with the latest weapons isn't always best, so they meet with lesser technologies and fight with heart instead....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oblRpXsNgBg

This seems to be more the type of battle one might want to partake in now and then....yes?

Ok, I know no one is going to buy the 500 round system above but it was too cool.

- You can get the M305B though, which turns out is really an M-14 through and through. I just discovered that in this review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxlfENKINMQ
I think they now sell for $600 everywhere, but at least you can also take this hunting and not just to the range. This is still within the price range of many bolt action .308's and there is no power loss from being semi -auto as it has a gas system that captures energy after the bullet has left the barrel. Another big plus of this specific rifle is that it is capable of firing both the 7.62 x51 and the .308 rounds. This means you can fire military ammo which is often less than half the price to buy.
