This is Revision Here's a program that's under DARPA, the United States defense research facility. That's pretty cool, but I feel like that's really over hyped. I saw an amazing video of a more practical version with a guy talking about how he was so surprised that anything he could lift was nothing more than 10 pounds to him.

Oh yeah, I've been getting google ads for Revision military stuff.
Don't know why they're trying to pander it to me, though.

That video does seem a bit overhyped. Actors out the ass, the guy chicken winging when aiming his rifle, etc.
Also, how do you expect to consistently aim with a facemask blocking your cheek weld?

Anyway, this has been an interesting conversation, but I'm off for the night. It be 5 AM, lol.

I did hear that the US is looking to have Marines replace their M249s with M27 IARs from HK. From initial reports, it's doing really well. They said they can't keep doing fire support with the M249 because of how inaccurate it was; needed something like the IAR, not a bullet hose.

From what I hear, the G36 is going through the same problems that US/Germany had when they tried to joint develop the XM8. Something that is interesting, though, is that German Chancellor seemed to hint that, should the G36 fix the issues, there could be a return of the G36. It's not like the M16 went through its baptism in the jungle without problems.

On a side note, that soldier looks like he's armed with the best of the best. A living tank. Any idea what he's even doing?
#56 - edgecutter (1 hour ago) [-]
It's basically the L85A1 and L85A2 debacle all over again... German Edition, Electric Boogaloo. AKA, Shekels and Kosher, it's time to fix your own shit.
There's nothing really left to be said about the matter. You either wait for em to fix the G36, or you jump ship.
If it were up to me, I'd jump ship purely because I know the HK416 works.
And you're gonna need that modernization sooner or later. With threats all over the world building up again, I'd rather have it sooner than later.

But what're you gonna do, mass public believes the military is useless these days and demands their taxes go elsewhere.

I just google reverse searched that picture, and I knew he was from some sort of "Future Soldier program" but I never knew it was a spanish one. So there you have it.
Just some bullshit "Future Soldier" show to impress the ignorant.
(That's just way too much gear, man. Jesus, those are 90's levels of optimism)
Though, on a related note, I did hear the US is planning on introducing exoskeleton equipped heavy soldiers. Power armour style, and all that good stuff.
Pretty exciting, if you ask me. AND viable at the same time.

And because I can't find a proper picture of what I want to show, I'll just post this chechen Kalashnikova instead.
(Pretty sure it's airshit. Amusing nonetheless)

Huh. I can't tell where that picture is from. Hey, what are your opinions on the German government phasing out the G36? I heard they were looking at the HK416 as a replacement.

I'm not to sure about what you said about SF vs special police. When i first saw that picture, it was talking about them being SF, but I might be wrong, of course.

To the right is probably the newest poster I could find of the Marines from my country of birth.
#52 - edgecutter (2 hours ago) [-]
Lol, yeah, you can barely read the Thai letters on his vest.
They're the Royal Thai Navy SEALs.

I'm not military (yet), so I can't exactly form an opinion on these matters.
However, going by what I heard about the G36, it's about damn time they phased it out.
I hear the bloody gun literally melts with prolonged shooting. Cheap platic, apparently.
Plus, it must be a pain in the ass for joint operation logistics if the G36 doesn't use the same STANAG magazines like everyone else.

On the other hand, going with the HK416 seems to be going overboard.
You'll have the same problem the US had when the ordered the SCAR from FN.
It's too expensive to field to your average GI Joe. To boot, Germany is having, like almost all the other West-European countries, massive budget cuts for the military.
And the HK416 and 417 aren't the cheapest, I would imagine.

But considering it from another perspective, it's best to bite through these hard economical times for the military and try and field a more reliable rifle platform for the infantry anyway. There were serious problems with the G36 and reverting back to 90's levels of rifles just isn't an option. Especially not when we're gonna need NATO support very soon (hint hint, Russia, hint hint).

Then again, that's just an outsiders perspective on the matter. There are several other variables to consider before forming a strong opinion on the matter.
Such as:
Precise quantities of their budgets
The actual costs of the new rifles
The time it requires to have properly issued them to everyone
Estimated accustoming/retraining time for everyone to get used to the new M4- I mean HK416
Etc.

Pic related. "I operate on another level" (looking at it like this, you really wouldn't tell they're planning on phasing out that plastic toy)

I really hope it is. I dunno. I personally feel like – with any fandom or group – there are idiots who represent the larger group to the public. Like cases where untrained gun holders accidentally shoot themselves, people start getting all nervous about people with CC licenses and crap. The negatives always tend to speak louder than the positives. Same here, instead of focusing on that guy getting his wish to be in the show, there's this controversy about it all.

By the way, I really like the pictures you've posted so far. I can't remember what SF nationality the first one you posted was... Norwegian?

Thing is, I'm surprised to even see this. I haven't read anything about this since last year, when it first happened, and even then it was just full of inaccurate statements.

Eh, I'm not going to look up how accurate the post is.
I'm not going to kill someone over it, in the end.
All I am doing is expressing my immediate reaction to what I see here.

Sure, I have my (many) prejudices about the MLP community. However, I am convinced that most of them are justified prejudices, based on my personal experiences with their community. I am equally sure that there is a significant amount of those prejudices which are probably unjustified.

If what you say, and what the sticky says, is true, then I guess it's fine?

I really hope it is. I dunno. I personally feel like – with any fandom or group – there are idiots who represent the larger group to the public. Like cases where untrained gun holders accidentally shoot themselves, people start getting all nervous about people with CC licenses and crap. The negatives always tend to speak louder than the positives. Same here, instead of focusing on that guy getting his wish to be in the show, there's this controversy about it all.

By the way, I really like the pictures you've posted so far. I can't remember what SF nationality the first one you posted was... Norwegian?

Yeah, I get the vocal minority thing. Everyone has em, nobody likes em. They're just there if you want to enjoy a good shitshow.

Danish Frogman Corps, actually.
I just really like them for their use of camo nets draped over their heads like that.

Now, revel in my country's clown camo SF.

Ooh, those FN2000s look really sweet. That's one gun that I really think does bullpup well. I'm usually not one for curved surfaces on weapons like that, but somehow it just seems to meld with rest of the design.

Here's a picture of the SF forces of the country from which my parents emigrated from.

Hang on hang on, I'm not gonna use google for this one.
Taiwan?
Aren't those Special Police, though? Still, very badass guys.
I just wonder how they aim with those bulletproof masks on.

Here, a picture of one of the SF of my country of birth.

Huh. I can't tell where that picture is from. Hey, what are your opinions on the German government phasing out the G36? I heard they were looking at the HK416 as a replacement.

I'm not to sure about what you said about SF vs special police. When i first saw that picture, it was talking about them being SF, but I might be wrong, of course.

To the right is probably the newest poster I could find of the Marines from my country of birth.

Lol, yeah, you can barely read the Thai letters on his vest.
They're the Royal Thai Navy SEALs.

I'm not military (yet), so I can't exactly form an opinion on these matters.
However, going by what I heard about the G36, it's about damn time they phased it out.
I hear the bloody gun literally melts with prolonged shooting. Cheap platic, apparently.
Plus, it must be a pain in the ass for joint operation logistics if the G36 doesn't use the same STANAG magazines like everyone else.

On the other hand, going with the HK416 seems to be going overboard.
You'll have the same problem the US had when the ordered the SCAR from FN.
It's too expensive to field to your average GI Joe. To boot, Germany is having, like almost all the other West-European countries, massive budget cuts for the military.
And the HK416 and 417 aren't the cheapest, I would imagine.

But considering it from another perspective, it's best to bite through these hard economical times for the military and try and field a more reliable rifle platform for the infantry anyway. There were serious problems with the G36 and reverting back to 90's levels of rifles just isn't an option. Especially not when we're gonna need NATO support very soon (hint hint, Russia, hint hint).

Then again, that's just an outsiders perspective on the matter. There are several other variables to consider before forming a strong opinion on the matter.
Such as:
Precise quantities of their budgets
The actual costs of the new rifles
The time it requires to have properly issued them to everyone
Estimated accustoming/retraining time for everyone to get used to the new M4- I mean HK416
Etc.

Pic related. "I operate on another level" (looking at it like this, you really wouldn't tell they're planning on phasing out that plastic toy)

I did hear that the US is looking to have Marines replace their M249s with M27 IARs from HK. From initial reports, it's doing really well. They said they can't keep doing fire support with the M249 because of how inaccurate it was; needed something like the IAR, not a bullet hose.

From what I hear, the G36 is going through the same problems that US/Germany had when they tried to joint develop the XM8. Something that is interesting, though, is that German Chancellor seemed to hint that, should the G36 fix the issues, there could be a return of the G36. It's not like the M16 went through its baptism in the jungle without problems.

On a side note, that soldier looks like he's armed with the best of the best. A living tank. Any idea what he's even doing?

It's basically the L85A1 and L85A2 debacle all over again... German Edition, Electric Boogaloo. AKA, Shekels and Kosher, it's time to fix your own shit.
There's nothing really left to be said about the matter. You either wait for em to fix the G36, or you jump ship.
If it were up to me, I'd jump ship purely because I know the HK416 works.
And you're gonna need that modernization sooner or later. With threats all over the world building up again, I'd rather have it sooner than later.

But what're you gonna do, mass public believes the military is useless these days and demands their taxes go elsewhere.

I just google reverse searched that picture, and I knew he was from some sort of "Future Soldier program" but I never knew it was a spanish one. So there you have it.
Just some bullshit "Future Soldier" show to impress the ignorant.
(That's just way too much gear, man. Jesus, those are 90's levels of optimism)
Though, on a related note, I did hear the US is planning on introducing exoskeleton equipped heavy soldiers. Power armour style, and all that good stuff.
Pretty exciting, if you ask me. AND viable at the same time.

And because I can't find a proper picture of what I want to show, I'll just post this chechen Kalashnikova instead.
(Pretty sure it's airshit. Amusing nonetheless)

This is Revision Here's a program that's under DARPA, the United States defense research facility. That's pretty cool, but I feel like that's really over hyped. I saw an amazing video of a more practical version with a guy talking about how he was so surprised that anything he could lift was nothing more than 10 pounds to him.
#66 - edgecutter (1 hour ago) [-]
Oh yeah, I've been getting google ads for Revision military stuff.
Don't know why they're trying to pander it to me, though.

That video does seem a bit overhyped. Actors out the ass, the guy chicken winging when aiming his rifle, etc.
Also, how do you expect to consistently aim with a facemask blocking your cheek weld?

Anyway, this has been an interesting conversation, but I'm off for the night. It be 5 AM, lol.
Have a "gif" of a true future weekend warrior.

Raytheon XOS Exoskeleton Ah, here's the one I found.

Nice talking to you! Sorry if I'm just throwing stuff at you.
