                It's true.

                I have a friend who used to fly a DC-3, there is no fricking way the next generation will be able to get their monke brains around the complexities and parameters that radial engines need to operate. There's all sorts or RPM's you can't run it at for too long, you cant run at certain RPM's or the cylinders will glaze, hydraulic locks on the lower heads... it'll shake itself to bits at the wrong harmonics for too long

                They're also really slow, it would be a long trip

                Many twins have those restrictions, including some turboprops, but I don't remember the DC-3 having those. You're good up to 38" of manifold. We never went above that to preserve cylinder life.
                But then again, I'm only well-versed with the Wright engined DC-3s. P&Ws sucked ass.

            I have TBI from a big impact + ten thousand micro-shockwaves just from being weapons platoon commander and being so close to either SMAWs, mortars, AT4s, LAWs, or 240s constantly rocking, or calling close fire support missions. Turns out having your head right next to a bunch of explosions isn't good for long-term neurological health. Ten years later I get seizures and have a constant 8/10 headache that doesn't go away. Overpressure is real.
            Still the most fun ever though, totally worth it. Would recommend .

          blastwaves frick your nerves up
          it's not talked about these days because safety regulations have been good in the west for decades but old school blasters had a lot of issues going on beyond hearing loss, and blasters today in third world countries have those same problems
          heavy artillery men during ww1/ww2 also had similar issues
          even "minor" vibrations like from firing a gun can be dangerous, some machine gunners during ww2 era developed vibration syndrome in the arms, in modern times it's usually a result of power tool use

          They were starting to replace foot rags with socks before the whole shitshow in Ukraine. Now they're back to rags because they've got enormous stockpiles of these things and they can't afford to issue socks.

        over modern socks not much honestly
        they dry faster and are easier/more comfortable to multilayer, if absolutely necessary you can kind of clean them by hand (but not really)
        they fall into that weird category of "used to be better but are now specialised equipment" and people get confused reading newer and older info, sometimes both mixed together
        if you're going super deep into enemy territory with no hope of resupply, are stationed in a swamp, stuck in a monsoon or operating in extreme winter conditions they're the better choice
        outside of these specialty conditions, normal socks are better
        for non-operating I've heard some people say if you have foot skin or sweat problems, they can be a better choice than standard socks since they don't crumple and breathe better
