    Is anyone using the Five Seven as a service pistol? I love that fucking thing, hell of a lot better than the Sig crap we swapped to.

      I think the armed forces of Saudi Arabi bought like 12000 of them, so I assume they've got plenty in service for daily carry.

      Besides that though most customers were police departments or smaller military units or guards, and those orders were much smaller and undisclosed quantities.

      Some Belgian police/military units might also use them.

    >Germany
    I generally think our military is ok in how it's set up in theory, I just wish we had a bit larger army and air force and most importantly much better combat readiness
    also our pretty large budget should be spent better. E.g. our navy has a decent number of frigates, corvettes, and submarines, but they're pretty weakly armed.
    also what we really need is more combat experience. In the war against ISIS for example, we sent reconnaisance and support troops (recon Tornados, tankers, a frigate, some medics). I wish we had sent special forces and used our aircraft for airstrikes to directly kill ISIS tards too.

    also we need more cruise missiles, better air defense, and armed drones

      Given Germany's position inside a modern friendly Europe, with Russia busy neutralizing itself, I think you guys would benefit a lot from pivoting towards more air and naval power and cutting back on the army a touch. I can't see a real land war in western Europe anytime soon, and if you picked up a couple helicopter carriers, or one or two real ones given that you probably could honestly afford it, you'd have a lot more weight to throw around diplomatically.

      Yamato & Musashi were overrated and probably wouldn't be worth the cost of upkeep. There's a bunch of museum battleships to visit, don't get greedy. Think of the poor Euros.

            Just forget the fact that Canada is a nation of perennial gays for a moment and imagine it. A dedicated interceptor, or at least as dedicated as planes get now. Fast, long legs, with room for long range weapons and modern stealth, electronics, and communications gear. Ideal for denying the northern airspace to hostile interests and participating in coalition air campaigns. Of course they would hope that with enough tech transfer from LockMart or whoever, Super Arrow could restart a hope for Canadian military aerospace.

            It's kinda kino to imagine it, I won't lie.

              I'm sure something like this would do something like that just fine. It'd be great to see how many JSMs can fit in big honkin' delta like that. It wouldn't even cost so much at this point in F-35's lifespan. Call it a 5.5th gen plane.

    I really wish Ireland had bought at least 2 second hand F-16's. We have no interceptor capabilities and I don't really trust Britain to guard our air spaces properly. Friend of mine is a pilot in the air corps and he says as of a few months ago the prospect is completely off the table, government wont shill out the money for it.

      I could understand an Irishman not trusting us British, but I really believe that we would never allow such airspace violations to happen, and the vast majority of Irish know that British will have their back in some kind of third party situation, no matter what. If not because we would genuinely be outraged by some other country bullying Ireland (that's our job!), but also because any time Britain has been invaded, it has been done through Ireland.
      It's strange how the government are so against investing in the Guard to have real defensive capabilities, despite the Irish proving again and again through history that they are true warriors and some of the best men the British have had.

      B-1 is kinda ass tbh. The requirement changeup between the A and the B left the B going a lot slower than the A would have, it has 20,000 pounds less payload than the B-52, and it obviously isn't the fucking 2, no explanation needed there.

      B-52s are going to be even more terrifying than they've ever been once AGM-181 LRSOs start coming out. It's fucking hilarious.

    Russia used to have four of 'em and America used to have nine smaller cope equivalents, now its the very last of its species. Going to be heartbroken when some smoker or Finnish missile turns it into a reef.

          In reality it sat for about a decade, then was given some basic maintenance and repairs between 2010-2013 when they stopped doing anything again because there was no actual modernization path decided on yet, finally they got back to work in 2014/15 repairing the hull and removing old shit that would be replaced with upgraded stuff, that has continued up until today and is expected to continue until 2023 when it is supposed to start sea trials.
