Why not put the Army Corps of Engineers on the Great Wall of Trump?

Isn't building fortifications their whole job?

I'm about to buy an Springfield M1A. I thought about FN SCAR 17, but they're a bit beyond what I'm willing to spend (unless you think it's worth it, but I'll have to wait longer for my first gun).

My question is, what kind of material do you guys use to wrap your guns? Is there a type of blanket that's preferred (outside of a case)?

Soldier specialities pre 1900s.

Back in the day(lets say 1700-1899) were soldiers able to pick what type of soldier they wanted to be? For example could a man rock up to a recruiting office in Europe and ask to be a Cavalryman, Infantryman, artilleryman etc etc. Even more so could they choose their specific job within those roles ie: Heavy cavalry, light cavalry, light horse, rifleman/marksmen, light infantry, guardsman, grenadier etc etc?

This is doesn't necessarily have to be about the British Army.

Now that the Sig P320 has won the new Army contract, this old girl can now rest it's head.

Tell me how you honestly feel about the M9?

New York Edition

> What's this thread about?
As usual this thread is for the discussion and pics of tracked and wheeled AFVs of all kinds from MBTs to supertanks to self propelled AA guns. Please keep it civil and cite sources for statistics.

The procurement and design of the M247 Sergeant York SPAAG was nothing less than a fiasco for the US Armed Forces, and a stain on the reputation of the Department of Defense and its ability to be trusted with the substantial arms build-up of the late '70s continuing throughout the '80s. By 1985, a grand total of 34% of the DoD budget was firmly earmarked for procurement - an outcome that stemmed from a combination of both modernising consensus and Cold War pressures. Although there are myriad examples of procurement failures with large cost overruns, the problems afflicting the York project were of an entirely different order of magnitude. How could such a self-evident and fundamental demand in terms of military hardware - a radar SPAAG to support ground troops in the vein of the contemporary Shilka or Gepard - culminate in such a scandal of profligate proportions? For that question to be answered, the focus must not solely be on the practical aspects of engineering a design and its manufacture, but also the Byzantine strictures and protocols that characterised the bureaucracy of arms acquisition during the York's development. The idea was not at fault - but the means to actualise it, from the corporate involvement of manufacturers, to the unique acquisition strategy proposed by the programme managers, were all in some capacity flawed, and detrimental to the York's realisation as the next step in air defense for the United States.
