The Dutch look like a mix between german GSG9 and French GIGN
First time I've seen one of these in the wild
Very unusual lockup mechanism, and all things considered a rather cheap and simple thing to build.
honestly all the new 556 piston guns are starting to blur together.
If all these new 5.56 rifles are going short-stroke piston, there's gotta be some kind of impetus for the mass adoption of that operating mechanism type by world MIL/LE forces.
As in, companies wouldn't make them if there wasn't a noticeable demand.
This looks like a space gun.
Considering theres like dozens of them now that are practically equal in functionality I would say their development is spurred on more by nations wanting guns procured domestically for security, political and control reasons. IE rather than license X gun from Y country, make your own AR18 reskin that you can control the development of and not have go poof if geopolitics shift.
Saw this on my Facebook
Great for when the Russians show up to your backyard bbq
Just in case you wanted to see someone shoot a Canadian machine gun in 8mm Mauser from the hip.
Dutch DSI with an integrally suppressed Sig MCX in 300 BLK
that's unironically tacticool as fuck, that's badass
JLTV with a Kongsberg LW30 RWS equipped with a 30mm M230 chain gun from an Apache, Javelin ATGM, and can also fit a Coax M240.
Site doesn't allowed hotlinking.
Craft produced rifle and RPG platform from Kolkata, India.
New Dutch camouflage patterns
Huh? Is that like digitized Rhodesian brush?
It looks more like a Flecktarn-ish pattern to me. It's called Netherlands Fractal Pattern. There's an arid version of it in multicam colors and a "transitional" pattern which is supposed to be for PPE like body armor and bags so that they don't have to issue those out in different patterns.
I love the B-25. We took a medium altitude medium weight bomber and turned it into a low level, wave top flying, attack plane to strafe and parachute bomb enemy ships/defenses.
Anyone got a couple dozen thousand dollars? This cannon was made in 1897 and is still in firing condition, it's even being sold with a case of modern reproduction ammo.
Jihadis hailing from post-soviet states sure love their bullpup'd slavshit.
mosin nagant bullpup when
beaufighters fucking up german ships
god DAMN that's a LOT of bullets
When the french decided 'why not put big guns on a sub'
Putting big guns on the Surcouf was only the beginning, it also carried a collapsible monoplane in an internal hangar for recon and artillery spotting.
However launching that plane required substantial time, so what do these mad Frenchies do?
Design a submarine launched anti-submarine helicopter with coaxial rotors. We are still in the 1930s by the way.
These ambitious ideas often don't go anywhere, but this actually got built shortly after the war, although at that point the navy had already lost their interest in the project.
btw I highly recommend checking out the Covert Shores blog for anyone who has some interest in submarines. It has some great analysis and artwork on everything from South American narco-subs to Russian installations under the arctic.
AK bullpups are sick shit, though. I wouldn't mind having one. I only learned of their existence in Medal of Honor Warfighter.
