/k/ - Weapons Wiki

Among the quick-guide and infographic threads on /k/, there are occasionally more worthwhile and heavily-detailed manuals posted. Several of these documents provide vast amounts of information on firearms, military equipment, and military tactics. The following is a list of links to some of the more notable and interesting manuals.

List of Manuals[]

http://stevespages.com/page7b.htm: Hundreds, literally hundreds of weapon operation manuals. This is an absolute goldmine of information; if you ever wanted to know how a particular firearm operates, even if it's only semi-common, look no further (with the exception of Eastern bloc firearms, in which case there is significantly less information). Also has a good section on firearm optics & accessories.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army_Field_Manuals: Mainly information on US military tactics.

http://www.fas.org/irp/doddir/army/ranger.pdf: Arguably one of the best books on squad based tactics.
