Spanish artillery piece, captured in Havana in 1898. Originally cast in 1769. Spain was not doing so well by then.






One of two captured WW2 German antitank guns, outside an American Legion post in Cincinnati.

The SR71 at the Boeing museum in Seattle is pretty cool, they have a full size one on the floor as well as a cockpit section you can climb in.




We also have the shuttle trainer, even though there was a building made specifically for the discovery or one of the other real shuttles. gently caress you, California!

It's actually an M-21, the two-seater variant of the A-12 used to launch the D-21 drones. It's also the only surviving copy of the two that were built. :spergin:

Also yes, gently caress you California. We won that loving shuttle fair and square but NASA threw up their hands and were like "welp :lol: we hosed up but cali gets it anyways, peace bitches"
At least the trainer is cool in that you can pay :10bux: to get inside of the cockpit, which you'll never do with the real ones.

They might be integral silencers. They don't look screwed on I think its the whole barrel

Some reverse image searching indicates that those are special forces, which means they probably have the suppressors on to show off.

Bullpups are stupid but I'd buy a QBZ95 derivative if Norinco hadn't tried to smuggle guns to street gangs and gotten finger wagged out of the market.

Jesus christ. When I was a kid I had the green and tan plastic soldier toys. One dollar could get you 300 of them. Kids these days...

Wait... Those arent for kids are they?


Also, say what you want about the chinese military, atleast they have some original camo ideas.


I can see this uniform being useful if they are inserted using hanggliders on a sunny day.

I figured I would contribute something once. Have some awful pictures from my old phone, taken at Ft. Bliss up at OP 100, north of Donna Anna I think.




Taken during a day or three of waiting when the paladins were doing dry fire verifications.
