  1. Last week
  2. Earlier
  3. Looks like something happened to my thread... I can't go to 'AMMO PORN' and continue posting historically accurate information.

    Sure would be nice to have access back.


    OPFOR - OUT!

    1. The_Dad


      I just sent in an error report... we'll see how long it takes to get a response

    2. OPFOR_06_Actual


      No response yet, apparently...

      Oh, well.

      It was fun while it lasted, and I can go back to my previous posts and copy-paste if I need to.


      OPFOR - OUT!

  4. I finally found it! The document is titled "Historical Development Summary of Automatic Cannon Caliber Ammunition: 20-30 Millimeter." Dated (also declassified) January 1984. Written by Dale M. Davis, Munitions Division, AIR FORCE SYSTEMS COMMAND*UNITED STATES AIR FORCE*EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, FLORIDA. (The period covered by the report is 1952 to 1983.) I quote: "SECTION VII HIGH DENSITY PENETRATORS Perhaps the most spectacular aspect of the GAU-8 gun is the effect of its high length-to-diameter ratio (subcaliber) depleted uranium penetrator upon striking ar

    Anybody been ammo racked lately?
  6. For this week...
  7. 3 marks: Chaffee, ARL 44, PzIII/IV, M7, Cromwell, T21, M4 Improved, Skoda T40, Comet, T20, Super Pershing, SpIC, O-Ix, Crusader, VK 16.02 Leopard, VK2801, AT 2, T37, Mutz, Firefly, M26 Pershing, Panhard AMD 178B, M4A3E8 Sherman, FV4202.
  8. I finally bought it (April 2020) and played it (March 2021) after watching HOURS of tutorials. It is really good. Not sure how many times I can play through it, but it is a great strategy game.
  9. Is anyone interested in jumping into DayZ? There is safety in numbers and it would be cool to have some DHO humans on a server. Let me know.
  10. Score to beat this week is 721 in the T1 Heavy. Links to the FB & Twitter posts below. https://twitter.com/worldoftanks/status/1391045231546667010 https://fb.watch/5moDeO5ymn/ Remember to include all 3 screen shots! Sample below...
  11. The next candidate for dissection shall be the German 3-cm MK 103 (one of my favorite light tank weapons!) This little beastie lists its AP ammo as the "3cm Armor-Piercing H-Pzgr. Patr. 103 (w)". Please note the 'H': this tells us that it has a 'Hart Kern' or 'Hard Core' and it's made of 'Wolfram-Karbid' (Deutsch for Tungsten Carbide). How do we know this? Well... see the '(w)' at the end of the WoT nomenclature? That stands for 'Wolfram/Tungsten'. This supposed AP round is (in reality) what we all know as APCR!!! [But wait! There's *MORE*!!!] The AP Composite Rigid has a s
  12. Here's the pertinent perforation data for the previous post (above): The maximum peak pressure remains exactly the same, due to the reduction of the projectile/sabot weight, and the increase of the propellant weight. OPFOR - OUT!
  13. Finally got the numbers worked out for the perforation stats on this beastie: This projectile is about 37% lighter than the previous APCBC-HE-T, so the MV was increased from 3,255.19-fps to 3,738.5-fps. This only takes into account the change in the projectile (+ sabot) weight. This reduced the maximum peak internal pressure by 22.3%, so the amount of propellant can be increased by ~8.35%, for a final MV of 4,050.71-fps. I'll post the perf data shortly - wifey needs my attention! OPFOR -OUT!
  14. This week is the T1 Heavy.
  15. Small bit of trivia: The M392 is of United Kingdom manufacture and bears the U.K. designation of L36A1. Reference: TM 43-0001-28, dated April, 1994 DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. OPFOR
  16. Thanks for covering for me! Nice match BTW! Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/gaming/WorldOfTanks.NA/videos/366866678041869/ Twitter link: https://twitter.com/worldoftanks/status/1388508513635274753
  17. This ought to take care of it.....
  18. Since @SGrant7is slacking off this week...it's this tier III German LT. Also, it's bonds week.
  19. Read an old REBEL_TEXAN thread about update 9.7 nerfs: "Penetration of the APDS-T M392 shell for the 10.5 cm L7A1 [M68/Bordkanone/etc.] gun reduced from 268mm to 257mm..." Well, using those penetration nomograms I referenced in previous entries, this is how the round *SHOULD* perform against BHN-220-to-330 armor plate (RHA): I worked this out a couple years back as practice. OPFOR - OUT!
  20. A N Y W A Y . . . Now that I've done the work for the 10,5 cm Kwk (46) L/70 regarding it's 10.5-cm Pzgr rot [AP projectile], how about the next one I do should be a real-world APDS, like maybe this: NATO (German) 105mm APDS 105-mm x 617 DM13, HVAPDS –T MV: 1,473-mps; 4,832.67-fps (recalculate this for the Lowe 105 gun) Projectile as fired (with sabot): 5.84-kg; 12.88-lbs Sub-projectile in flight: 4.02 kg; 8.87-lbs Tungsten core: 2.73 kg; 6.02-lbs Just sayin' OPFOR - OUT!
  21. I see what you did there... verrry intearestink... but SCHTOOPID! [Artie Johnson, the German in the bush character on 'Laugh-In'] Cool wartime poster, but I'm presuming (I don't want to 'assume') that you are aware that if the documents aren't properly declassified, I would be liable to be investigated by the DoD or Homeland Security for letting State Secret Information escape to the world wide web. I don't want to risk losing my secret clearance by posting actual classified stuff. Besides, the soldier on the poster is only a lowly Buck-Sergeant. We had vast herds of those running lo
  22. Great data... looks as if the Allies were justified in their fear of the Tiger. In WoT, the Tiger is relegated to a mid tier Heavy with dubious effectiveness, it would appear that with your "tweaks" the game would fall more in line with real world expectations. Then again, the game has 60% paper and advanced era tanks. ANd yes, we need to watch out for those pesky Nazi spies!
  23. SIERRA-HOTEL! Good to establish comms with a fellow warfighter, even though I never did anything but cold war deployments and got all busted up & medically retired one week before Desert Shield became Desert Storm-1. Anyway, what did you think of the Kwk 36 pen charts I posted on page-6? That's all based on the nomograms developed here - "SOURCE: Based on experiments by American, British and Canadian military establishments." Nomogram page is dated 1 January 1945. The overall document is titled "Effects of Impact and Explosions", dated 12 February 1986. This is also the declassificati
  24. invite sent... welcome to DHO(riginal)!
  25. I can't find you under this name. Are you on the NA server? and are you playing PC or console?
  26. Huuuhhaa!! I went to jump school right after OCS, spent about a year in schools (Officer Basic and follow on schools) then sent out to Germany to Hanau. I was an Avionics/Armament Repair Platoon leader for a AVIM maintenance battalion. I was the only NON-rated officer (I was Signal) in the entire battalion! Got several hours bootleg flight time in Hueys and Cobras... (it was the age of dinosaurs!) as the Blackhawk and Apache were still being field tested. Went to see Berlin and the wall on one of those USO tours, that was an experience. PCS'd back to the states, went through the advance
  27. @rewguy79or @The_Dadwill get y'all setup in DHO soon.
