or, which would make much more sense, the god is named after what the god rules over
#61 - monkyolsen (07/30/2014) [-]
Or you could call it Tellus, which is another name for the roman goddess Terra.
User avatar #30 - whiteniggers (07/30/2014) [-]
Actually, no. The gods were named after the Earth had its name.

This is because Earth was discovered before we started making up people to rule it, when we couldn't do the jobs ourselves.

Only in those languages, English never adopted that because the English don't believe earth is a god (whether it is or not is not the point)
#72 - amusingusername (07/30/2014) [-]
Guess what? Terra means earth in latin.

English simply translated the name of the god literally, just like God, the name for the christian diety is translated everywhere else in the world.
User avatar #77 - mrnpc (07/30/2014) [-]
No shit Sherlock. The thing is that Erth is not associated with a god in the minds of Englishman like Terra represented to the Romans

Both the APC and IFV are similar in the way they both have infantry and are armored. An APC would be something like the M113, only turret it has is a single 50cal. The BMP-2 in the gif has a 20 (or 30)mm cannon with AT missle tubes on the side.
#35 - malifauxdeux (05/11/2014) [-]
sure sure sure it wasn't. Well, I'm sorry that you've become enraged by information from a credible source. An IFV's main function is to carry people around. It just has bigger guns.

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. Similarly, all IFVs are APCs, but not all APCs are IFVs.
User avatar #62 - KEpToK (05/11/2014) [-]
how I like to see it is this:

An APC can engage infantry and some small vehicles ie trucks and jeeps. Up against another apc it would be a case of two dudes slapping their dicks against a tree.
IFV's however can handle all of the above as well as MBT's with the missiles on their turret. Wikipedia is a great source of information, but to accept it without questioning it defeats the purpose of it being there.

I would like to perform a simple test to see if it's an IFV.
If you put a terrorist in there, does it become the lesser equivalent of a demo truck ?
#22 - malifauxdeux (05/11/2014) [-]
an IFV is a type of APC though.

and an APC is a type of tank.
User avatar #183 - marlton (05/11/2014) [-]
IFVs are distinct from armoured personnel carrier, which are purely transport vehicles armed only for self-defense and not intended to provide direct fire support. IFVs also often have improved armour and some have ports which allow the infantry to fire personal weapons while onboard.
User avatar #126 - niggastolemyname (05/11/2014) [-]
APCs are more commonly wheeled (as with BRDMs or BTRs) and carry no more than a 20mm autocannon, witch can be used effectively for infantry fighting and armored fighting up to 100m~, but typically carry 7.62 or 5.56 machine guns and carry more than 4.

IFVs are tracked and better equipped, more armor and bigger weapons (like TOW missiles and autocannons) , and carry usually only 4 or 5 passengers

With Russian vehicles it's pretty easy: Tracked: It's a BMP, for infantry fighting
4 wheels and no turret: BRDM-1
4 wheels and a turret: BRDM-2
6 Wheels, taller and a turret: BTR-80 / BRDM-3
User avatar #24 - spookyexplain (05/11/2014) [-]
Typically, an IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) carries decent weaponry - a turreted automatic cannon of 20mm or better and it will stick around once it has dropped off its dismounts to support them.

APCs are armoured taxis, with pintel or remote machine guns for self-defence. After it has dropped off its infantry it will retreat to cover.

i stole that from the internet
User avatar #39 - trostell (05/11/2014) [-]
The BMP-2 still has one major flaw in it's design, though. Those thick hatches the infantry dismount from are actually fuel tanks for the BMP, are extremely flammable, thinly armored, and tend to jam once set on fire. An armor piercing incendiary round can actually kill all the infantry inside the vehicle by exposing them to lethal fumes and fire while trapping them inside the burning vehicle, but at least it's not a BMP-3 with it's faulty 100mm main gun.
#27 - malifauxdeux (05/11/2014) [-]
I stole from the wikipedia article about IFVs that they are a type of APC. Also, remember, armored personnel carrier. An IFV is armored, and carries personnel (infantry).
User avatar #29 - mangoa (05/11/2014) [-]
though would it stick around fighting? their distinguished roles varies enough for armed forces to differ between them. but if you'd prefer, we can just call everything with tracks and a turret, a tank.
