(Going to take the upvotes as a yes)

 

I'd have to convince the partner first. Lol.

 

Do you know where I can find more info on it? Better yet, Chief, do you have a link?

Destiny 2 is eating every minute of my recreation time. This evening I discovered the emote that is now my favorite emote in the game. Any time Monty Python is referenced in a fun way in a game I like it.

 

 

Also, here is the long lost picture of my Titan's Robopimp 9000 armor (which has been consigned to the cosmic bit bin in game).

 

 

I'm so jealous.... waiting for the PC release still.

Chief got quoted on the front page of imgur

 

...sadly, the comments to that article are full of raging wehraboo ignorance.

To be fair, some of the points the poster went for were poorly made (as some of the comments note). I'd probably would've covered the optics differences rather than "gun accuracy", and used a comparison of crew lost between different models of tank (I believe Chieftain has done this in an article or the Myths presentation he did a few years back) to better show crew survivability.

 

Also, sloped armor on Sherman vs near flat on Tiger. That effective armor value comparison always amuses me.

Yeah, the poster should have compared rates of catching fire too. The mechanical accuracy comparison is definitely misleading, as combat accuracy is what counts.

My reaction after engaging with my people on conversations about our military and especially our armor...

 

 

I tried... I can't... It's bad... 

 

Can't be that bad.... actually wait no.

Judging from how stubborn you are it's definitely that bad, one can only assume that most other Portuguese are exactly the same.

 

:D

 

And this is how stereotypes are born.

There's a reason pages like the Exército Português's youtube channel disable their comment section.

 

So much to know where to start...

Well, according to many, we should not have bought new tanks (Leopard 2s) back in 2006, in fact, they believe we should not have tanks at all!

Its costs the state money they say. 

Ironically, no one gives a F* that the government is giving millions of taxpayer money to the Tauromaquia among some other stupid shenanigans!

 

Also, the belief that no one can beat us which is mostly caused by the Republican brain washing happening at schools. They are not being taught a lot of things, the Ultramar, in particular, is almost like a Tabu and a lot of people, especially the younger generation is highly misinformed about it. in my family, for example, I know my grandfather wants to talk about it with me bc he knows I'm interested and he strongly believes that information/teaching should be passed down but each time we start talking about it we are cut by my grandma... she's a control freak and has him under the thumb.

 

Spoiler

 

Also, we are not taught things like the [edited]disgrace it was Timor. The Portuguese population absolutely loves Timor, people of my age are still old enough to remember the protests we did in support of the Timorenses, but no one talks about why that mess came to be. Of the Portuguese abandoning Timor and the thousands of innocent people that died because of the Indonesians and US.

 

We are only taught of our discoveries/conquests and victorious battles and anything that was Republican good with a twist of bad mouthing towards the Monarchic party. I swear even the Napoleonic invasion we are taught is such a load of crap.

 

We are taught by the Republicans that our Monarchy was really bad governed and in deficit, yet they don't say that the Republicans were in deficit just as bad!

 

Although there still a strong Monarchic party following and they often verbally clash, I am not one of those people. I just wish things were so less biased...

 

 

Its frustration that most people are too stubborn to inform themselves and can't go past beyond "PORTUGAL CARALHO!".
