I would go one step further, bring her and her editor into the SOFREP studios to debate the merits of her argument against Jack, Brandon and Kerry! Have Nada Bakos moderate and put it on PPV...a couple elitist progressives should be able to make some simple door kickers deranged by PTSD look like blubbering idiots right?

Hehe- I would pay money to watch the men skull stomp the progressives metaphorically....

Excellent! I was thinking option 2 was the best....literally means that you do not have to be terribly concerned with your propellant lot changes as long as your vital parameters such as force and quickness do not vary much from your starting reference point....

This is very fascinating to me, I am actually a ballistician by trade...have to be wary of ITAR though...

This will be a hoot. Now to go to the other articles....

Now this is seriously cool…I am assuming, for those going to their own reloading, that you are dialing in your zero range for every particular lot of propellants you are using to make the exterior ballistics invisible to changes in your interior ballistics? Just zeroing up my thinking relative to the action inside the barrel…


Look forward to a lot more...

Very, very well said Chief. The Progressives fear veterans for their individual skills and character, which can not be blended into the evil collective they want on the whole...since they control the media they can harp PTSD for every little thing to herd the sheep in the direction of their respective pens...

I scream at the tv every time I see this crap...

Reply

@BrandonWebb @ColonelProp  You are welcome - when Kerry Patton tweeted out his article on this my blood pressure jumped again..I was watching the FoxNews channel with Hannity and was cursing a blue streak at the TV...all these news people are painting this huge "broken soldier" brush over our veterans right now...which was very effective in alienating our heros in uniform during the SE Asia wars of the 60-70's - it is immoral and criminal what the MSM is doing again. 


It is very key for SOFREP to get out even more and provide data based opinions from real men, not the elites.

Well done Chief - excellent point on "fraying at the edges" and fending off the gun control hint..."bases are the largest gun free zones in the US" and getting back to the real issue of mental health...


Fraying at the edges implies in my mind that there is a certain small set of folks that are on the edge, the vast majority are not "broken" - which is what the quick jump to combat trauma is being used by the MSM to get the civilian population afraid of our veterans...I believe this is total crap. We have to help and not be fearful.


Very good stuff - I though Rajiv C spoke like a true thinker and not a knee jerk reactionary.

Very good set of data A7, what you may be losing in the minutiae is the trend Sean is poking at.

Sean is performing the classic "what might cause" question and answer for a fishbone assessment of an issue...

As to the HE equivalency what we did was a very conservative assessment, discounting any remaining fuel in the tanks adding to the energy equivalency...

So if we say the jet impacted at 350 knots we get 2200# of TNT for 10,000 psi over-pressure at the 20' diameter, at the impact point we get 100 kip still....the point being we got a huge detonation type event that was detected in some manner by the USN, the size is not as important over a certain level....and there is no way the USG will release any details on our capability...rightfully so.

Now I am an ordnance systems engineer, but I don't work for NASA, but with them...my rocket company can be confusing...

As much as I truly hate to see this story I believe it is a very necessary first step - much like the 12 steps of AA.

We as civilians are responsible for caring for the moral and physical needs of those who serve this Great Republic because civilian leadership is ultiimately responsible for sending men in harms way, in this case on a massively repetitive scale. We must look at ourselves, just as Jack and SOFREP are forcing military leadership to look at a nasty issue, and ask that we stand up and get far better elected leaders in power. Or we go the way of all dictatorships, but now with weaponry that will make all other imperial death spasms look like schoolyard fistfights....

Well done men - this is very painful, and very necessary.

Blake - good analysis...

I think what will go down is between likely and worst case...Russia will get stopped at Poland....

And beware the US elections...this has all the trapping of a Reichstag fire event, especially with the famous "I can be more flexible after the elections...." potus comments.

Very, very dangerous times right now.
