Foreign Affairs / Re: African Militaries/ Security Services Strictly Photos Only And Videos Thread by BlackBaron: 10:26am On Feb 17
tdayof:


You know how many shells are being fired per day in the north east? Firing millions of dollars in the war against BHT won't be a good idea since we can easily get coordinates with ISR and fire unguided shells.

You're merely boiling it down to costs. I'm asking of the possibility of also developing similar systems for ourselves. Unguided shells are sometimes inaccurate depending on factors. If needing close support with risks of troops nearby. What's the solution?


Henry240:
I don't understand this leftist idea of what war is. Is it supposed to be a Tea Party?

Makes no sense to me, war is not supposed to be pretty or a soap opera, it is brutal. I understand the need to reduce collateral damage, but it simply drives the cost of prosecuting an operation.
Fine mentality you got there Sir. Let's just level everything on a bf because we saw ten BH. What has the left also got to do with the discussions here.

@ andrewza and nemesis4u.

fair enough regarding your points.
http://www.janes360.com/images/assets/423/54423/precision-guided_munitions_for_field_artillery.pdf
Here's an interesting pdf about the topic. Posed the question just in the event a very precise hit is needed to avoid collateral damage especially in urban environments. Take out a dug in building,cqb or an attacking force further away with a drone above providing overview.
Regarding costs, a guidance kit (The Orbital ATK Armament Systems M1156 PGK) fitted to 155 mm shells costs about $120,000.000 for 12000 units which is about $10,000 each?

LTGEN:

I am talking of shells similar to The American Excalibur rounds. We do not have the type unless you want to furnish us with proof.

nemesis4u:

....
With better quality 'eyes in the sky', say with the airforce grounded, how easy is it to fix guidance kits on pre existing 155mm artillery shells for precise hits on enemy targets. Is it a project with easily available off the shelf parts? Or do you think guided arty shells are a luxury?

I'm usually averse to tribal esque issues but I don't think this would end well if looking at the issues at other middle belt regions.

It's not acceptable the government has to press on every other region to support the nomads. This is not a fooking master - slave contraption.

There's a difference in work ethics between private and public sectors. (Proforce vs DICON)
Proforce knows better than sitting on their asses all day.
That the guys and management (DICON) know that even if they put in half a shift, they'll still get paid at the end of the month.

The same attitude is replicated all over, NA, NAF et al. No urgency or uptake of lessons to make sure tomorrow is better than today.

Didn't this same Government import some special types of grass seedlings suitable for livestock to grow.
Not acceptable though, whole country has to offer up land then pay to fund non paying cattle rearers to allow them continue their livelihood.

The stench from here is absolutely grotesque.

I'd posted about this once, maybe the first time it was found.
The use of this weapon has been highlighted on different occasions by Conflict Armament Research (CAR) Found with cattle rustlers, armed robbers and possibly BH. Sightings mostly localised up north.

Why do Nigerians in general have such garish taste in furnishings though...?

Wonder how much interior decorators charge for such eye wincing decor. Looks just as bad as E-money.

P Square and Ms ikeji seem to buck the trend with clean but quite classy furniture.

Latest version; AC-130J with 105mm cannon.

Fat chance we might get any type of gunships...but with its incredible loiter time, it might be an incredible asset if we could get even a derivative of it such as the C 27 with capabilities for multiple roles can also in 4 hours be converted to the MC-27J as it is a modular platform.

Disappointing that despite our insurgencies (running into almost a decade) we are still collecting bits and bob from all over the planet.
Nothing stopped us from acquiring stop gap measures such as the Air tractors which could stay on for 6 hours. Heck, even an OV 10 Bronco might have done our job.

Please, do our vehicles at least have some form of tracking device or nay?

BH been capturing bits and pieces of infantry vehicles but not heard once of the army striking their bases after they must have driven back to their hideout.

They could either outsource this to a third party company or potentially acquire short or long term measures.

Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by BlackBaron: 7:34pm On Oct 27, 2017
@Zeestone99,(Already chatted a bit yesterday) GeorgeD1 (has the most extensive SP project here I think)

Please, can I indulge your knowledge about building a good solar power project.

I have read and still learning about SP. I am looking for one in excess of 4KW plus or more (if needed)to run a bungalow or two. Items such as fridge, tv, low energy LED, washing machine(?), microwave (?)

Say I had the opportunity to purchase all I wanted from abroad at a fairly cheap price, would that make a lot of difference versus buying all from Nigeria?
I have possibilities of getting via eBay or Gumtree for example
solar panels
deep cycle batteries (from AGM to lead acid)
Inverter

Would just like to draw on your knowledge on what could be bought to make this set up a very good and worthy setup.
Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by BlackBaron: 3:14pm On Oct 24, 2017
Hi guys.
I read this section from time to time. Was wondering on how to go about starting off with solar power. What is(are) the best company(ies) out there in terms of reliability, plus what are the costs involved for a mid level to elaborate installation.

Electrical items such as fridge, freezer, tv, washing machine (?), light and so.

I like the Ara and hope to see more modifications on it, the headlights right now are too low and should be higher.

EDIT: Never mind, can see the new fog lights affixed on top.
I think Proforce must be visiting this thread and taking suggestions.

Henry240:

The material used inside, what sort of material is that?

Material is like some sort of 'quilt' I think. Would be good if it were to also be fire retardant.

You do know the Russian General was killed not by an ambush but on the frontline right. The last picture of him was during the crossing of the Euphrates. The terrorists were only separated by the river.
It's different from getting hit from behind son.

We could probably borrow a handbook from others. There's also vast pockets of unpopulated areas between Damascus to Deir ez zor, yet those areas got swept and secured. The last pockets of enemy concentration are currently sieged and getting attacked daily.

It's like over here, we don't have a clue or know the clear extent of the terrorist groups. And if we do, then it's clear that the hierarchy is not fit to hold their office when they do not have a solution to the problem.

Knowing very little of the NA dynamics with BH but can we not have a sustained offensive to actually capture land, police it and retain it.
If we actually already do this, then is it down to bh cells which we do not seem to have checkmated.

Hiding and unleashing an AA gun against troops should be nigh on impossible in areas already captured by our army.

Had fights while in secondary school.

The most memorable was from a kid who grew up in the barracks. While squaring up, I got a punch I didn't see coming, got hit in my stomach possibly in my liver or diagphram which took the wind out of me. The fight ended at that moment.

The pain unbearable and for minutes I could not get up. Could hardly walk afterwards for a few hours.

Politics / Re: Buhari Signs Proclamation Proscribing IPOB by BlackBaron: 12:26pm On Sep 19, 2017
Criticised IPOB in the past especially with the hate speeches at the beginning and some of their modus operandi. Kanu for starters started out extremely vile and distastefully to almost all major tribes bar none.
While I do not accept its proscription relative to much criminal groups like the 'militant arm' of fulani herders.

I believe IPOB should also study separate groups in the past such as 'ETA' which progressively moved from non violence to violence. Killing and burning a police officer and police station respectively is a tendency of a group probably trying to tip over to get more attention from the government. The government too typical of excesses of security agencies ignored their rules of engagement and wrongly killed quite a number of people.


Does Nigeria need restructuring? Fuccking yes. however, it needs to start from us we having gained enough wisdom and electing the right people who can push our agendas collectively than this batch of rogues who ignore promises as soon as in power.

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Please is this a sign of diminished IQ in Nigeria or some sort of curse to keep all their options to the same failed set of leaders?

Buhari, Jonathan, Atiku are just another collection of rhetorics, all mouth, no manifesto or blueprints. These leaders throw their hats in the ring only because they have the clouts or they have a useless godfather backing them.

This thread is probably the longest d#$k measuring contest between Nigeria and South Africa. Can't we just get along?

Anyway, keep the pics coming folks.
Probably due to the dearth of plentiful pictures/video of African armed forces in general. The next best thing is the argument.

Best believe it, this is what oils the cog of this thread.

#Everything is sadly viewed from an ethnic prism. If you are going to be foolish with less than ideal dimished IQ, pointless quoting me cos I won't answer.

Besides rebadging is a global practice. Honda Accord and Acura TSX are basically same. Only made in different countries.
The most important bit is Innoson does have licence to produce like any other in the past.
