Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.
So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.
A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.

Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

        AK47 is bar none the best automatic rifle in the world. Yes it has many detractors but no other rifle comes close to how this thing has shaped the world.
        Good thing this isn't a "Which AR has changed the world" thread.

        I'll go with the Mk 16 just for ****s and giggles.

          On the 416/417 If you read up on the changes, the only thing kept was the trigger mechanism(and perhaps one other part). And for your information, the AK-47 is a very unreliable weapon that nobody uses, the AK - 47M is the proper and correct name for the well known AK, the original variants of the AK were jam happy peices of ****.

          In terms of an assault rifle, a few things matter, reliablity/accuracy/stopping power. The AK has two of these to about 300 Yards, the H&K has all three to a much further distance (depending on your weapon sights, be they open/aimpoint/ACOG). It depends what you need, if you only need a weapon out to 100Yards max, both will do and its up to opinionated twats to yell out which one is best, if its a matter of range, then H&K wins.

          EDIT: Thought it necessary to throw in that the H&K inst necessary my most supported weapon here, there are many AR's that can engage up to 700-1000 Yards. Just making the point that the AK series suffers from the lack of very effective medium range accuracy.
          When I say AK47 I mean the whole lot of them as just a general term. AK47,AK74,AKM47, AKM74 ect ect..

          I've seen how the 416 works and news flash it's not revolutionary. It's a AR with a piston.. nothing more nothing less. Everything "good" about it is attributed to using a piston rather than direct impingement. I'd be willing to bet you put up a good quality piston AR up against the 416 and they'd match it easily.

            Good show of 7,62x39 vs 5.56x45 (or the soviet 5,45x39)


            7,62 has worse ballistic coeffiecient hence loosing energy much faster and haveing even worse trajectory. Even at close range it shoot "over the target" by almost double that of the .223. Which could matter if Im trying to hit prone target behind a tree, only showing it's head.
            Granted at close range 7,62 might penetrate that tree, which explains why anyone bothers to use that thing that and the fact that during it appearance it was easy to switch some of the equipment making full scale 7,62 rifle round to make the intermidiate cartriage.

            RK95 basically made the barrel more heavy to compensate the "wobling" of the long stroke gaspiston, used in ak-type guns. Hence Im sure that coupled whit 7,62mm ammo, it is an accurate gun...on rifle range.
            On field, from a less "perfect" fireing position whit it rear sight on the mechanism cover which causes it to sift, I'm not so sure.

            That and its heavier than it's predesessors.

            G36 is certainly a solid piece of engineering. Ampidexterous controls and "optics". 416 providing an option for those used to the grip of m4 and standard rails for mounting all shorts of gadgets you might allrady have in inventory. Short stroke gaspiston get's away from the fouling of direct impigment system of ar15 series is plagued whit. As well as the inaccuracy of long stroke mechanism.

            Gun I have in sights is actually Tavor21. Being actually lighter than G36 dispite being bullpup offering longer barrel lenght whit same external dimensions sound like a good bargain.
            Yes, many find magazine layout difficult, but that can be helped whit simple army drills low muzzle velocity due to too short barrels can not.

            Given that different optical sights are most important developement of last decades when it comes to small arms..yuo really want to take advange of the increased pratical engagement range offered by them.
            And in Tavor the are integradted into the barrel helping to stop them to get disaligned.

            So, on paper Tavor get's my vote, both G36 and it are of comparable reliability as far as I have heard so only thing in question remains is the question of production costs. Since they pulled the blug on xm8.

              That video sucks.. At 200 yards I'd expect better accuracy from both rifles but then again I don't smack the living hell out of the trigger like the "shooters" do in this video.


              • #22
                Actually the 416 is better than the Magpul Masada and the AK combined.
                Modern Warfare 3 - because blowing up families is much more important than gameplay!

                  The 416 doesn't need anything extra to be good because it's based on a good platform that performs even better with their gas-piston upgrade. (Yes you can get other gas-piston kits as well)

                  We're talking military use, unlike couch commandos such as yourself we don't exactly have time to be gentle. So ideally this would probably be a better example of it's intended purpose.

                  Does it make the video less 'legit' sure. This thread is retarded.

                    Anyone who is anyone who has learned how to shoot a weapon properly and accuracy wouldn't smack the trigger like the 2 jackasses in the video did. I'd expect much more out of both of those rifles at that range with a decent shooter.


                    • #25
                      They didn't exactly smack the **** out of the triggers. So move on to your next complaint.

                        Its discovery channel AKA america bias forever channel, ever watched them have a 'best tank' or 'best rifle' "documenterary", utter crap. There is even one clip where one of their "ex seals" (probably expelled for being retarded) picked up a .223 "this is the round the m16 fires ", next a .308 " this is the round the ak fires ", then a .50 cal "this is the round a .50 barett fires ". Most people probably caught the part halfway through where he said a 7.62mm Nato fits into an AK... (That was the final nail in the coffin of my never listening to discovery again)

                          That video is saying the AK47 is actually a machine gun ?

                            I wonder why nearly all the tier one units (who pretty much have freedom of choice) wanted the 416 and why whenever nowadays a country that isn't third world looks for a new assault rifle, they look at the 416 and usually take it. Oh right they don't know **** and are all about the HK kool aid. Thank god they didn't ask the couch commandos or else they would end up with super cool but obsolete AKMs.
