Re: The New Joke Thread

Health experts say doctors are administering less than half the normal amount of immunizations for illness like HPV, whooping cough, measles, mumps, and rubella, as parents postpone wellness visits for their children during the coronavirus pandemic.

So is it safe to say the first pic was of an original Carl Gustav and the 2nd pic was of a US version?

How did the AT-4 enter into the conversation?

No, not an original Carl Gustav (1948 model). Probably the M2 in use from the '60s to the early '90s



The AT-4 came from a64pilot's post:
"Interesting, the linked article speaks of it as a missile system, and the system it’s replacing, the AT4 is a missile system"

Re: The New Joke Thread

I thought this was the Joke thread, not the machismo thread.

Re: The New Joke Thread

I have never seen a rifled rocket launcher, although all US helicopter fired aerial rockets have scarfed nozzles to make the rocket spin, the tubes are all smooth.
A rather large problem can occur if a rocket gets stuck in the launch tube as it will very quickly burn through the tube, maybe that’s why they aren’t rifled?

Gord a little drift in the joke thread won’t hurt, and no one is being Macho.
I see something odd, I ask for an explanation is all.

A missile is usually a guided rocket I think, but there are now guided rockets so who knows.

Supposedly before Gulf War I there was a poster of Sadam Hussein at Ft Knox at the headquarters building with the caption of “thanks for saving our branch” cause many were saying tanks had gone the way of Battleships.
