Default Semi-OT Any good video channel recomendations.

For months I have debated recommending this one here.

This one might seem a little weird. A muppet with a Russian accents goes over the results of fictional modern combat. Odd premise but I have learned things.


Binkov's Battlegrounds



The channel's recent discussion of the Koreas/China and a reviews of US/Russia Nuclear capabilities pushed me over the threshold as to its relevance.

Neat.

Realized I should probably discourage overly political blogs, but tech, scenarios, weapons, equipment, vehicles, history, alt history, etc all seem fair game.

As someone who was obsessed with Victory at Sea when I was under 10 and really misses the old History Channel I have found some stuff on Youtube can fill those voids.

Goodness. This is even worse (from a history perspective) than most of their current fare.

Forgotten Weapons

It also has a companion YouTube Channel

Although most of the weapons covered aren't going to show up in a T2K campaign, the videos are fascinating to watch for the history and different technical approaches in firearms development.

Most featured weapons are in auction houses, so the host is obliged to give a bit of promotion in return for getting to play with the gun, but it's nothing excessive.

As an example, here is a Brazilian SMG from the 1980's:

And here is a custom combination gun from before WWI:

I already knew what all the guns in battlefield 1 were before that game even came out because of Ian.
