2019-01-14: Both newly scraped images and full images are available again after making a deal with Cloudflare to disable caching. This gives us time to research alternative methods of serving full images. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

/k/ approved jackets

No.36336021 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Sup /k/

I'm looking for an insulated jacket (hardshell or softshell) for cold weather OPERATING when layered over a fleece mid layer and base layer. I was thinking along the lines of the Arc'teryx leaf cold wx hoody or Atom LT hoody, or the vertx smock (although I don't think they make it anymore).

What else should I consider for brands?

Diving

No.37143333 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Hello /k/, been interested in diving and recently bought myself a soviet IP 5 Rebreather, mainly because i am Australian and diving gear is expensive shit.

I also need to do a course to obtain my qualification to dive so i opted for another option.

I will be using it to dive up to 15-20m, probably even more. Using it mainly for rivers and such. Only worry i have is if the canister is confronted with the Air/Water (somehow it will set on fire which will kill the diver but i'm willing to take the risk.

Video of the one i got; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CowjpZDtNlE

Can we have a government black projects thread?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MARAUDER
>In 1993, the Phillips Laboratory developed a coaxial plasma gun capable of accelerating 1–2 mg of plasma by up to 1010g in a toroid of 1 meter in diameter. The toroids are similar to spheromaks, but differ in that an inner conductor is used to accelerate the plasma and that confinement behavior results from interactions of the toroid with its surrounding atmosphere. It utilized the Shiva Star capacitor bank to satisfy the large energy requirements that were needed.
>As of 1993 the project appeared to be in the early experimental stages. The weapon was able to produce doughnut-shaped rings of plasma and balls of lightning that exploded with devastating thermal and mechanical effects when hitting their target and produced pulse of electromagnetic radiation that could scramble electronics.The project's initial success led to it becoming classified, and only a few references to MARAUDER appeared after 1993. No information about the fate of the project has been published after 1995.
Is there a good chance this thing actually ended up working really well and got classified?

USA immigration

No.36117001 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Ausfag here, Is it almost impossible to immigrate to the US? From what I can find the fastest way to get a green card is through marriage? I doubt I'll be able to find a job, I don't have any exceptional skills, only intermediate knowledge of machining and mechanical engineering and a passion for firearms. Is my dream of becoming a firearms manufacter just a pipedream?

Unconventional weapons for unconventional warfare

No.38405302 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I'm reading "Fry the Brain: The Art of Urban Sniping and its Role in Modern Warfare by John West", and was fascinated by some unconventional ideas on sniping.
One of which being sniping with a .177 air rifle. He postulates that these rifles are adequate for taking down man sized targets using a video of a man killing a 200 pound hog as anecdotal evidence.
Another one being a handgun, such as a Glock 17 with a scope resting on a stable surface/bipod being used for short-range sniping. He claims that concealment and maneuverability can make up for its lack of accuracy.
A third unconventional idea was using a shotgun firing slugs for sniping up to 100 yards by referring to a UVF-contract killer as anecdotal evidence.

You can find the book on the murdercube if you want to take a look. I myself purchased the book as it was relatively cheap. It'll probably get you on a list.

What are your thoughts? What other unconventional ideas for unconventional warfare may you propose? A compound bow/crossbow? All ideas are good ideas, gentlemen.

Pic related.
