Responding to a dead post kinda

There's another problem with gear driven systems, they have no slack in the system. Think about the torque being exerted on drivetrain components during a harsh downshift. In a a belt or chain system, there is some small amount of bounce that is taken up by the tensioning system. Performance suffers, but with a gear system, and especially on straight cut gears, all the load can shear a tooth. The best performance, and guaranteed to hold valve timing, but an extra failure point for race cars.

The Medium Tank M2 was a United States Army tank that was first produced in 1939 by the Rock Island Arsenal, just prior to the commencement of the war in Europe. Production was 18 M2 tanks, and 94 slightly improved M2A1 tanks, for a total figure of 112. Events in Western Europe and on the Eastern Front rapidly demonstrated that the M2 was obsolete, and it was never used overseas in combat; it was used for training purposes throughout the war.

The M2's unique features included an unusually large number of machine guns, bullet deflector plates, and sloped armor on the hull front (glacis plate). The main armament was a 37 mm (1.5 in) gun, with 32 mm (1.3 in) armor; the M2A1 had a 51 mm (2.0 in) gun mantlet. The features of the M2 series development, both good and bad, provided many lessons for U.S. tank designers that were later applied with great success in the M3 Lee, M4 Sherman and many other armored fighting vehicles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M2_Medium_Tank

Armed with 1× 37 mm Gun M3 and 7× (maximum 9) .30-06 Browning M1919 machine guns.

Let's just gloss over the fact that it can fly and be invisible (apparently defying the laws of physics), let's discuss the helicarrier's flight deck design. Going by this picture, the flight deck is on two levels: Takeoff from the fo'c'sle, straight out of the hangar in a similar bi-level design to HMS Glorious. Landing is on an upper flight deck, which is angled. Given that the Quinjets are STOVL, the need for an angled deck is questionable, since there is no arrester gear and thus no risk missing it and having to "go around". There is also no ski-jump, but Quinjets may take off happily without one.

They also fly F35 B-variants in and out, as seen in the first Avengers. It's capable of STOVL but that design allows for less fuel-draining traditional take-off and landing and also allows adaptability for other non-STOVL aircraft to take off and land as well.

The benefit of aircraft carrier is that they use a more dense medium (water) to efficiently transport vehicles that use a less dense medium (air) which is less efficient to travel through, to carry out their mission.

Putting an aircraft carrier in air is pants on head retarded, absolutely nothing is gained by the arrangement.

Also, I couldn't talk about the Helicarrier without bringing up the similarities with Cloudbase from Captain Scarlet.
Yep, it's another flying aircraft carrier. The only difference is this one can't go invisible.

Mmm no, sorry bru. I tried looking around, and the Wikipedia article seems to support the assertion that they have some sort of accommodation, but I got swamped by false returns when looking for cutaways, even after specifying strict *34*. Honestly, you might actually try old /k/ for something like this. Monkeys and typewriters, y'know.

Alternatively, you *could* get your paws on the source materials cited in that Wikipedia article and see where that gets you; both appeared to be printed volumes, so it shouldn't be too big a deal.

God help you if they're by Jane's, though.

The aircraft is the size of a F-111 so it's likely it's just a small alcove behind the crew seats with a toaster oven or microwave for heating ration packs and a chemical toilet/small bucket. There's probably enough floor space one of the pilots could get into a sleeping bag.

How does the toilet on the SU-34 Russian fighter/bomber work?

Katya Aleksandra Hodgson, BTEC Applied Sciences, Hull College (2016)
Updated 36w ago · Upvoted by Andy Duffell, ex-fast jet armourer and Peter Wheeler, Pilot

Crudely put… it’s a large funnel leading into a cylinder filled with chemicals.

When people describe the Su-34 as having a toilet and a kitchen… it’s a bit of an exaggeration.

The enlarged cockpit area of the Su-34 does indeed provide a lot more comfort than typical fighter cockpits. The crew have space to comfortably sit and even move around a little, and don’t need the bulky flight suits typically worn by fighter pilots

However, it is important to remember that despite the enlarged cockpit, the aircraft is still based off fighter, albeit a large fighter. As such the space is still quite limited.

So, the all-new Laned-Rover Defender is here. finally. after years of waiting.

Things to note:
The station wagons are being released first with commercial versions being phased in from next year. this is the opposite of how the original Land-Rover was released. The soft top came out in 1948, with Tickford coach-built station wagons following later, but it wasn't until 1954 that Land-Rover produced their own station wagon using their own bodywork.
Engines on offere witll include diesel, petrol and hybrid versions. The initial release comes with an automatic gearbox. Again this contrasts with late-model Defenders, which had a diesel engine and manual gearbox as standard.
LWB 110 and SWB 90 models are being offered initially with no announcement of a 130 double-cab pick-up so far.

The interior will be a vast improvement in terms of comfort compared to the old Defender. A centre console is equipped in the model photographed, but you can also specify a central seat or leave the space empty for a walk-though cabin. the gear lever is mounted on the dash so centre seat occupants will finally have somewhere to put their legs!
Rear seats also have more legroom than previous 110SWs. however the seats in the "boot" are now forward-facing fold-away seats instead of the traditional sideways-facing bench seats, restricting maximum occupancy to 8, where you could get as many as 10 or 12 in the old model.
Some of the plastic trim feels a bit... plastic, so I do wonder how squaddy-proof this new vehicle will be.

Unfortunately it rained for most of the day, so many of the photos were spoiled by raindrops on the lens.
