Got my no4 mk1 magazine today. Its essentially brand new, and you can feel how solidly built it is compared to the crap mag that came with the rifle. Old on the left, new on the right. Now to get some charger clips and some 303.

I can either go with the century arms c93 (the 5.56 hk93 clone) or the PTR-91 (7.62 hk91 clone). I’m not really torn between the caliber as I am the quality of one over the other for the price. 5-700 for the c93 but century arms seems spotty with QC, or 8-1000 for the PTR-91 depending on options and the QC seems might tighter from all I’ve researched. The PTR is actually .308 as well, but again that doesn’t phase me. Decisions decisions
I’M SORRY SIR I’M GOING TO NEED TO SEE YOUR ID BADGE
Got a cleaning kit and padded bag for the Lee Enfield, and I came across a Long Branch no4 mk1 magazine for a price that wasn’t too shitty and ordered it. Gotta replace the crap one it came with - the fact that’ll match my Long Branch LE is a nice plus.
Hopefully at the end of the month I’ll have some extra scratch for a few boxes of .303 and charger clips and take it to a range.
Just picked up some Kantai posters from Anime Fix in Saint Petersburg, Fl. Love the Shimakaze one :D
Anime Fix (and myself) will be attenting Kantaicon on the USS Yorktown in Charleston, SC this Saturday September 6th with a merch booth. Please stop by, say hello and check out their wares!
Researchers in China have developed a new concept for a submarine that could potentially travel inside an air pocket at almost the speed of sound. Source
Supercavitation torpedoes have been around for a while - not a new concept, not developed by the Chinese. The USSR developed this in the 1960s. The Germans and US are working on/have further developed the supercavitation tech.
The current problem is there’s no way to maneuver a supercavitation torpedo (or sub) in a meaningful way to make it a real threat.
When an anime/manga series (Arpeggio of Blue Steel) gives you more accurate information than a “source for facts” then there’s something seriously wrong.
