/k/ Planes Episode 66: Miscellaneous Slavshit
64 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
It’s time for another episode of /k/ Planes! This time, we’ll be looking into the wonderful world of lesser-known Russian aviation.
While Russia would rise to be a major power in aviation that was hardly always the case. Ever trying to catch up with the west, Russian aviation would get its beginnings just before the start of WW1. While pioneers like Sikorsky and Grigorovich would do their best to kickstart development, poor industrial capacity and the West’s ten-year head start would mean that most pre-Soviet Russian aircraft would at best still be mounting foreign engines. The rise of the Soviets would further slow things, but relentless efforts to stay competitive with the rest of the world would lead to the rise of countless small design bureaus (OKBs) in the interwar period. A plethora of unusual aircraft would be developed, but a combination of purges and politics would doom many of these designs. Many a promising engineer was cut down by the purges, and even the great ones like Tupolev would not avoid the Gulags. Postwar consolidation would further cut the number of OKBs, leaving only the most productive still standing. Several unusual designs would arise postwar, but these remained few and far between as the major manufacturers dominated. The fall of the Soviet Union would spell the end for most manufacturers, and only the biggest of the “minor” OKBs (Antonov, Beriev, and Myasishchev) would survive.

A notebook that has been written for people around 1935 contains quality sketches of and decently explained the uses and importance of combat webbing, intermediate round rifles, bullpups (but highlights conventional style is still acceptable and prefered by some), light machine guns, modular weapon designing like rails, rifle mounted optics with and without magnification, and contained development in innovations (these can and will exist in numbers) such as radar guided missles, jets, modern aircraft shapes, stealth shapes, thermal and night vision optics, slanted armor, ceramic and birdcage armor, kevlar, and computers, and anti tank rocket launchers. The sketches just give examples of what theyd look like, not schematics. Material names are given and how they're used but not how to make them. There is nothing in the book that hints at who won WW2 or anything that happened during it.
It is sent to 1936 through a small but bright, colorful portal to a table surrounded by german generals and mr hitler making everyone feel special. Would nazi Germany still exist today? If so, how powerful would they be?
Next, what would happen if the average /k/ user was tasked with making germany win and wrote a notebook that was limited in the same ways but he hadn't seen my list of ideas and wrote it using only what he knew and found important?

Kansas' governor just signed Constitutional Carry bill into law

Kansas now has Constitutional Carry, meaning you can carry a gun concealed there without any sort of extra licensing, presumably as long as you're not a Prohibited Person, and presumably with a few extra limitations over if you have a permit, like no carry into bars (I have not read the Kansas law, I'm only guessing based on other Constitutional Carry initiatives). The new law goes into effect July 1.
Kansas confirmed as the most pro-gun state, or is Alaska still #1?
On a side note, I was just curious because the article says "becomes the 6th constitutional carry state," but are there really 5 other states that have this?
I have read in multiple places that these states have Constitutional Carry.
This was a new one to me, though.... Handgunlaw.us seems to be just as confused. Can any Arkansonians confirm or deny?
