Why not launch an equivalent of https://movies.stackexchange.com/? Here are some sample questions.

Why not pilfer and use the 2 technicals, 1 with a rocket launcher and 1 with a machine gun?

Black Hawk Down (2001) uses the term technical. Is https://youtu.be/CLN3xtFwJ78 realistic? Most of the US soldiers are low on ammo and underequipped.

First, Delta Force men strangles the Somalians in the first technical with the rocket launcher. Second, Eric Bana's character fires the rocket launcher at the second technical, destroying it and its machine gun. Third, a Delta Force man throws an incendiary grenade on the first technical and destroys it.

But why didn't Delta Force filch and preserve the first technical? They could've dismounted and used the machine guns, and purloined the bullets. Or they could've simply driven the first technical with the rocket launcher to the Rangers' perimeter defending the Black Hawk crash site.

And they didn't need to destroy the second technical with a rocket! They could've simply fatally shot the Somalians on the second technical, so that the rocket launcher stays intact. Again, they could've dismounted and used the rocket launcher, and purloined the rockets. Or they could've simply driven the second technical with the machine gun to the Rangers' perimeter defending the Black Hawk crash site.

Why isn't the windshield on the bridge of US Navy ships bulletproof?

In Endgame on the Last Ship, the windshield of the US Navy destroyer Nathan James is shattered by the machine gun and rifle bullets of the Greek destroyer HS Triton. I know that Last Ship employed military officers as consultants. Why doesn't the US Navy bullet-proof the front windshield? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alt0_Xd23dk

For the sake of the community that would support such a site, let's focus on the summary in this answer. Add whatever the site could basically be about, what it has, categories it includes and guidelines that summarize how the site acts like. Also, think of a name and we can discuss it in chat.

Summary of (what I would call Movies CD):

  • The site only has 1 category for now, Q&A, for all questions alike since they have no sorts of difference. - By Mark Giraffe

Maybe a second category for “Identify this” questions? (1 comment)
