This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.
If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.
We have a Matrix homeserver and a private Matrix room. See this thread for more information.
They probably need Maxx-Pro Ultra 5G overclocked…
I will see myself out.
I expect we’ll see more images like this once the leopards start arriving
“Maxx-Pro,” huh. Big name for a relatively lightly-armoured offroad small truck.
Super Bone-Crusher Invincible Machine of Death 3000 (has no armor over a vital area because some exec was cutting corners)
Ironically, the more useful and iconic hardware have the least pretentious names. Sure, a lot of equipment earn nicknames (Krokodyl, Katyusha, etc), but generally it’s a rule that even work for the US: While not invincible, the unimpressively-named M1A1 Abrams and M2 Bradley get the job done without coming from the assembly line with official stupid names that sound like an edgy teenager came up with.
It’s a marketing thing, a side effect of the capitalist mode of production. Look at Soviet designations - mostly just alphanumeric characters or something modest. I.e. artillery named after flowers (Tyulpan, Pion, Vasilyok). Meanwhile on the western side you get a competition for showing off. Can’t just name a cartridge 7.62, gotta call it “Blackout”. Can’t have a howitzer, has to be a “Paladin”.
Even historic American designations made sense or had patriotic meaning. Like the Sherman, Pershing, and Grant tanks, all named after famous and successful US generals. Or mostly just referring to the alphanumeric designation the design was given, (M-10 for example).
Modern American designations and “cool” flashy names are a joke.
Pompous names and branding is one area where USA absolutely shines
Least egotistical American engineers be like
You love to see it.
