                NTA, but most of Europe actually doesn't really care that much about doing things "The way uncle sam wants things done", at least not since early 2022, because Uncle Sam's methodology is exactly what you want to emulate right now, if the times are any indication. That's the reactionary measure a lot of Anti-NATO third world propaganda sponges aren't taking into account right now; Western militaries have never been more unified in their understanding of what in the world needs to be taken down for the survival of what they protect. There is SO MUCH talk of BRICS dethroning the dollar or the West's collapse, but little actual signs of either prospect...incidentally, how is the Ruble doing right now? Or the Yuan, perhaps? Because both have been dropping with some level of consistency against the dollar, and that's WITH Saudi Arabia accepting the latter for oil.

                Uncle Sam doesn't have security concerns like Mommy Europe has security concerns, and Uncle Sam doesn't just have Uncle Sam's geography to thank for that. Out of every country in the world, Uncle Sam probably has the least to worry about, atm, on the account that any military response to anything going forward isn't going to have a nation building project or "hearts and minds" to worry about; we're perfectly happy with engaging in another Desert Storm to show the c**ts of the world exactly why the west is not something that can be toppled, and you'll hate us...but in three or four generations, your kids are gonna love us. They'll have dreams of moving to America or Europe over the authoritarian shithole you've built for them, and we'll be happy to accept the brains we'll be draining from you, as usual.

                Same as it ever was! Then again...doesn't have to be like that. You could always accept western doctrines, morality, and most practically, checks and balances, but lets face it...none of those, especially the latter, are ever going to happen. You're all just too much...like *YOU* to be like us...

                It's funny you talk of authoritarian shithole when America has such a poorer rating as a democracy. I sure wouldn't want to vote in your gerrymandered still slave-bound states with less and less vote centers where you can lose an election with popular majority.

                That's the one thing you wouldn't actually do: Waging another war outside the US if you are not directly concerned.
                You barely manage to keep anti-communism fear against China to maybe defend Taiwan, the Donald still can't understand Ukraine isn't part of Russia, he will sure deal with China over "that China island".

                Hasn’t orange man just paddled back and is now supporting aid for Ukraine as long as it is a loan?
                Which technically still makes it a gib just because Ukraine will not be able to repay said loans. But figuring that one out requires proficiency in basic math, so the basic pleb will not understand it. Especially given how many loans the have already received from the Euros.

                The only reason he held many commitments was because he couldn't remove all the smart people during his ex-presidency.
                Donald claims to "solve the Ukraine problem in a day" is bound to involve him "making a deal" that recognize Russian conquest or lift sanctions in exchange of a ceasefire at least during his candidacy.

                I fear you, like his voters, grossly overestimate how much he care about democracy.
                Look as his background, for him popularity is something that is manufactured and fact are dictated by whoever is in power.
                You should pay more attention when he is said to idolize autocrat. He wish he had that level of power and likely think anyone who didn't vote for him "shouldn't count that much".

      Rheinmetall is literally building a factory on ukrnaian soil.

      This was such a moronic idea
      >ukraine needs vehicles now
      >we should instead build a factory so that they can build them instead of just buying them
      >we should also build this factory in Ukraine where the Russians will strike it

      Russia has yet to destroy factories in Ukraine that aren’t near occupied territory or central and western portions of the country. They haven’t even been able to deal the factories near the areas of operation, a couple days ago I bought candy that was made in Kharkiv, Ukraine. There is food being produced and exported from right next to fricking Belgorod.
      Only in recent weeks have they been finally able to destroy a few power plants. Their massive drone and missile attacks only seem best to destroy apartment blocs.
      But given how long it takes for factories to be built and get up and running, I would imagine that Rheinmetall and recent outsourcing will only be ready to deliver orders after the war has ended.

                Parties may be banned if they are trying to replace the constitution with something that is not governed by democratic principles. I.E. a communist party was banned in the 1950s.
                AfD is not getting banned and 'they' are not actively trying, because the hurdles to actually banning a political party are ridicolously high. Even if the party in its entirety makes the domestic watch list, thats far from sufficient to warrant a ban.

          Indeed. Germany is an occupied country that has clauses in it's constitution limiting the democratic rights of it's citizens imposed by foreign nations.
          But that's another topic.

          Well for example forming a political party on the lines of nationalsozialistische deutsche arbeiterpartei is prohibited.
          I can't think of a another nation in the world where certain type of political party is prohibited by a constitution.

          Name the clause, behindi.

              Yes. Welcome to the concept of a defensive democracy.

              >In German politics the concept exists under the term wehrhafte or streitbare Demokratie ("well-fortified" or "battlesome democracy") which implies that the federal government (Bundesregierung), the parliament (Bundestag and Bundesrat) and the judiciary are given extensive powers and duties to defend the liberal democratic basic order ("freiheitlich-demokratische Grundordnung") against those who want to abolish it. The idea behind the concept is the notion that even a majority rule of the people cannot be allowed to install a totalitarian or autocratic regime such as with the Enabling Act of 1933, thereby violating the principles of the German constitution, the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany.

              >Why are you against the will of the people???
              Because the principles of the democratic constitution are the underlying foundation of the nation and people and will not be infringed upon, evne by short-lived populistic demand. Germany's democracy will be defended, such is the duty of the government and every german citizen to themselves and future generations.

                Not a problem.
                The factor that keeps fossil fuels relevant is simply the price.
                Oil is cheap.
                Nuclear would be cheaper but because of bureaucracy (not for a bad reason) it's more expensive at the moment to set up.
                Also not all nuclear power options are equal.
                The current gen nuclear reactors are based on technology to support nuclear weapons development and the "red tape" was fast forwarded to make them happen.
                Now we need more red tape to make other kinds of nuclear power to happen.
                But red tape is veeeeeeeery expensive in the times of no cold war.
                But in any case we are in no danger of running out of energy.

                We won't run out of energy no, but the energy needed to extract the oil will at some point be too much to reliably sustain the current globalistic complexity of our civilization. It will simply be too expensive to get oil out of the ground to justify all this global trade and cargo, but our civilization is pretty much entirely built on top of it.

                Why would you want to extract the oil?
                The factor that makes oil important to us right now is simply economic.
                Right now extracting oil is cheap.
                But it's not the only option we have.
                We can replace oil with other options for fuel, rubber, plastics or anything else.
                Right now oil is just readily available resource that it ready to be extracted by technology that's already been developed.

                It's not. Oil is quite literally the simple best energy storage we have. It's what enables any kind of cargo, any urban living, any global trade and connection. We have nothing at all to replace the ridiculous ease at which oil can store energy and thus transport it and use in vehicles.
                >Right now extracting oil is cheap.
                It's less than a quarter of what it was a century ago. How much do you think it's going to be a century from now? It's not a very good-looking trend if you consider we're using more of it now than ever before. More each year than the last.
                >Shit if if economy demands then it's molten salt reactors by next week.
                A reactor on every cargo ship? On every aircraft? On every truck and civilian car? The moment we stop having cheap oil to sustain cargo, we lose the cities and everyone except a small elite has to move out into the country to practice sustenance farming or face unacceptable cost of living. +90% of the food is transported with trucks.
                But I guess that's the sort of robotic AI future that's being predicted in

                You can replace oil in shipping with Uranium.
                You can make hydrocarbon fuels from seawater with fission energy.
                The US navy does that right NOW.
                With nuclear energy you can make gasoline for your pickup truck, jet liner or stove.
                Uranium is not the only source for nuclear energy either.
                There's of course the ever present 20 years away fusion energy but there's also breeder reactors and thorium reactors.
                And on top of all that he have naturally occurring hydrogen.

                What cost does all that have? How much energy do you get in return for energy input in the extraction? Is it more than enough to sustain our complexity?
                How does building, maintaining and decommissioning a nuclear reactor, having the crew required to operate it, getting uranium for it, transporting that uranium (with uranium fuel?) compare to drilling a funny hole into the ground and having modern civilization pour out of it?
                Most sailors at this point in time are cheap third worlders, do you envision a future where highly educated first world nuke technicians take to the seas, or are the cargo vessels entirely driven and operated by AI and robotics? How expensive is that in comparison?

                The factor that one has to be concerned is economic.
                Like right now if you want to use trees as a source for energy one has to take in account how many billions of tons of hydrogen the sun burns every day to make the trees grow.
                The energy from the sun is "free" so the energy from the trees is "cheap".
                In any case were are playing the musical chairs of entropy.

                Yes, but that's the thing about oil and all economically viable energy "sources" (storages); they're already usable energy and we just need to get our hands on it.
                You used to get about a hundred times more energy out of oil than you put into it extracting it. Modern estimates are far less positive on the other hand, and they're only going down as the low fruit gets picked.
                >In any case were are playing the musical chairs of entropy.
                Yes, and the exergy is going down down down. At some point the system of our civilization is going to run into a point where it's no longer capable of self-sustenance with the amount of exergy available. And that's bound to be in relation to oil, because it's the supreme source (storage) of energy.

                But it's not.
                The energy potential of oil is bound to chemical bods of atoms and it's nothing compared to the power that resides in the nucleus of atoms.
                The ultimate power source in the universe is the pure antimatter-matter reaction.
                A tea spoon of anti-matter reacting with matter would dwarf the entire nuclear weapons stockpile of earth.
                The chemical energy in oil would not be even a tear drop in the corner of the eye of god.

                Both solar and wind solve energy supply overnight if we had better storage options. A breakthrough in batteries would make even nuclear largely pointless compared to solar arrays.
                So far there wasn’t much money in battery research but electric cars changed that. Hopefully we get something genuinely groundbreaking out of it rather than ~50% lower cost as has been achieved so far.

                The only thing that's going to take us to that level anytime soon is nuclear batteries - ie the shit they put in space probes and soviet lighthouses that ends up being extremely radioactive when Ivan cracks one open.
                A design that limits radioactivity and/or is able to use a safer isotope than thorium or radium effectively is the only solution.
                We've already explored every heavy metal electrolyte catalyst and it isn't getting any better than LiPo so we might as well go back to nuclear engineering a fix

                As much as nuclear is the future, you don't seem to understand physics.
                That or your believe we will invent a matter convertor.
                The only fuel you can make from electricity economically is hydrogen. That's a change from oil.

                "white hydrogen" is literally a byproduct from refining oil or rare natural source, you can't increase production
                "green hydrogen" from electrolysis require huge amount of electricity, the only one we can scale up.
                And just like oil fuel you lose >60% of the energy during conversion.
                (I do consider nuclear power as green, solar energy come from a nuclear reaction after all)

                >The ultimate power source in the universe is the pure antimatter-matter reaction.
                And a quick reminded that we have never found naturally occurring anti-matter. You'd need to produce it and we sure won't have a good conversion.
                So it is at best a "storage" and probably only useful for SF-level technologies.

                It was made as an alternative to roman law. Literally - for a long time practically all codified law was based on either roman empire leavings or napoleonic code civil or however it’s spelled in english - other systems existed but were almost entirely local and largely irrelevant on a state level

                You are correct. Democracies are very rare in history because their inherent shortcomings make them fail pretty fast. A democracy is fundamentally a way to separate power and responsibility apart, which quickly leads to massive corruption in the top levels of society. You can see this at all levels in a democratic society, even at the bottom, the plebs that vote for open borders are not the plebs that live next to immigrants, which menas that they exercize power without responsibility. Similiary, the plebs who vote for green power are not the plebs that live next to the wind mills.

                By forcing them through elections and popularity contests, they at least have to appeal to the voters, regardless of if they give a flying frick about them or not. The moment the political leadership are free to do as they see fit without having to rely on popularity to gain power, they start turning people into flesh cubes and executing wrongthinkers.

      >.50 would shred that
      Well actually it's based on Sisu Pasi which was 80's design that took some design ques from Fuchs mentioned in the OP but still mostly based on a Finnish military truck.
      It just so happens that I know a guy who was in a UN mission and they had to get rid of some old ammo and he fired NSV at an old broken Pasi Sisu from the side and he told me that the first salvo had only few penetrations.
      The second one had much more penetrations as the metal fatigued.
      NSV has much more punch than the 50. cal so the old Pasi is surprisingly resilient.
      And this model is based on the old and has the advantage of material science progress.

        Yeah, people need to remember that it's not a frontline assault vehicle that can take punishment but a cheap amphibious APC instead. You can buy a bunch at discount price when compared to other vehicles.

        It protects people from shrapnel and surprisingly, mines, but it's not going to shrug off autocannon fire or larger MG calibers.

        The AMV can be up-armored though, but that's going to take away the amphibious capability. Overall they're great vehicles but should not be compared to other vehicles with different design specifications.

              My wikipedia understanding is that the company Sisu made the OG 6x6, Pasi is just the nickname soldiers gave it which stuck. Then a different company Patria absorbed part of Sisu and they were tasked with making a succesor to replace Pasi. Patria came up with the AMV which is a new design meant to be a family of 6x6, 8x8, and 10x10 vehicles. Only the 8x8 was built. While the AMV is a successor to the Pasi, it is in some sense not descended from it. Later, AMV proved too expensive to replace all the Pasi so Patria were tasked to make something cheaper, a second succesor to the Pasi. The new Patria 6x6 imitates and looks like the OG Pasi but its DNA/components come from the AMV project. Its arguably descended from both.

      Boxer is an armoured fighting vehicle, designed to perform direct combat roles similar to an infantry fighting vehicle like Marder, Puma or Bradley. They just put it on wheels for better long distance road endurance.
      Fuchs and Patria are armored personnel carriers. That means they are vehicles that are not meant to go into combat, but which can survive being close to the front line for a while before getting the frick out of there again.
      IFVs are required to survive a direct hit and continue operating, while APCs merely need to protect the cargo from shrapnell or small arms fire.
      Different purpose, different armor, different weight.

    seems like a good choice if the vehicles are license built in Germany
    I hope we get some with the 120mm mortar too as M113 mortar carrier replacement

      I suspect that the 120mm will be put onto Boxers.

        would make sense to use a better protected vehicle if you want to make use of the direct fire option, true

          This with a roof mounted 25mm autocannon would be way better fire support than simply putting a tank gun on the Boxer. The NEMO 120mm gun can engage directly and NLOS.
