Bad news: Ended up putting the stock engine back in the MK1 I got for this project because someone offered me a great price for it if it was all stock. (It only had 39K on the odometer.)

Great news: Found another host for the swap, better yet almost as few miles as the previous host and factory new snowflake rims. Wasn't the holy grail turbo diesel model, but I didn't get it for the engine for a reason.

A ~1500lb pickup with a ~200+hp Formula Super Vee swap.

God willing Irma spares me...

Everyone tells me my scissor lift APC build dream is retarded
.. now I understand it looks stupid and is very slow but hear me out

you could armor it up and sit up there with a sniper rifle..
you could roll it up to areas unacessable to cars and provide ground support with a mobile gun carriage ( also can throw shot up homies in it as a medical vehicle)
... you could even pull up to 20ft windows and R6S it up and window entry right?

im not really worried about people trying to tip over my armored giraffe on account of how dang heavy these things are and sniper rifle

Having OPERATED these many, many times I can say: they're fucking slow.

Slightly above walking pace is max speed.

And they're pretty damn wobbly once the extendocock is extended.

>you cold even drive them through a fucking door probably..
Well, yeah, that's what they're designed for. Unless you get into the larger diesel powered models, but those are for outdoor use only.

The P-61 "Black Widow" all weather fighter-bomber-interceptor is not only the single most accomplished fighter aircraft of all time with respect to combat ratio, its also the single greatest military aircraft of any type ever put into service as it achieved it's combat ratio while also supplying both daylight and nighttime air to ground ordinance delivery with divebomber pickle barrel precision and delivering as much payload per sortie as aircraft twice as large.

prove me wrong

The argument settled without anyone mentioning that the P-61 could outmaneuver every other combat of it's time, that it could outturn a zero and outroll a 190 because of the P-61 unique control surface arrangement even thought the zero was half the size and the the 190 even smaller?
Damn the Black Widow didn't even have to work hard to win this thread. It outgunned pretty much everything too. Deicing gear, the best all weather radar ever invented, approach radar, bulletproof radial engines…

just damn, if u could datass a plane without seeming like some who wants to do sexual stuff to them then i would datass a P-61 24/7 for years on end without even thinking about other aircraft

>The ACH-47A was originally known as the Armed/Armored CH-47A (or A/ACH-47A). It was officially designated ACH-47A[56] as a U.S. Army Attack Cargo Helicopter, and unofficially referred to as Guns A Go-Go. Four CH-47A helicopters were converted to gunships by Boeing Vertol in late 1965. Three were assigned to the 53rd Aviation Detachment in South Vietnam for testing, with the remaining one retained in the U.S. for weapons testing. By 1966, the 53rd was redesignated the 1st Aviation Detachment (Provisional) and attached to the 228th Assault Support Helicopter Battalion of the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile). By 1968, only one gunship remained, and logistical concerns prevented more conversions. It was returned to the United States, and the program stopped.

>The ACH-47A carried five M60D 7.62 × 51 mm machine guns or M2HB .50-caliber machine guns, provided by the XM32 and XM33 armament subsystems, two M24A1 20 mm cannons, two XM159B/XM159C 19-Tube 2.75-inch (70 mm) rocket launchers or sometimes two M18/M18A1 7.62 × 51 mm gun pods, and a single M75 40 mm grenade launcher in the XM5/M5 armament subsystem (more commonly seen on the UH-1 series of helicopters). The surviving aircraft, Easy Money, has been restored and is on display at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.

>> No. 21848 ID: 1d521e

Uhh, except for blackbook projects, ALL of them. Governments don't just hand their militaries blank cheques, they're budgeted with tight cost controls. R&D is a massive cost, you can't just have a vague development budget for multiple projects or hide the costs in other parts of the budget. The money men would never allow it.

Yes you can, in fact, you must, if you want to have a space for several variants and have to change specifications during development and construction. Unless you have the bad habit to throw the money at problem until it goes away. I don't know, it might be that US project planning is entirely different and they need to invent moon landing from scratch every time they want to go to the Moon.

Let's see what you need for current specifications of aircraft carrier:
1. 100 000 tonne hull construction project (ice-capable for northern seas) - that is the main trouble, although not as much since Russia has several docks able of building such a ship. Latest series of ice breaking ships is already at 33 000 tonnes.
2. Power plant - nuclear reactors for this ship have been developed for new icebreakers already. Carrier's power plant will be designed for hybrid propulsion - which means that some modifications will be needed, naturally.
3. Air traffic management system - pretty much the reason Kuznetsov being updated. There's a lot of experience learned form operations in Syria and it will take time to learn from that.

The rest of the project will have to follow these primary goals, otherwise it will turn disastrous, of course. As I said, it will take years of preliminary development without any mentioning of final project. Compare that to the less exciting and more developed alternative which awaits decision with it's preliminary design already completed.

Like some people want to retire to a yacht, I've wanted to retire to a solar-powered airship since before I entered the workforce.

I've been following Aeroscraft, SkyCat, Walrus HULA, HAV and all of the other players in the semi-rigid or rigid airship game for a long time now. I feel with modern meteorology, modern materials and other modern technology, we could make safe airships using hydrogen instead of less-buoyant, more expensive helium like everyone wants to use. The ignorant and semi-informed layman still misunderstands the Hindenburg disaster nigh on 80 years later because nobody feels any compulsion to look closer into it. There are low-hanging fruit to be grabbed in demonizing it and it was done by the Nazis so why pursue it?

Okay so how do you propose getting around the "strong wind/rainstorm can destroy the vehicle, and it can't outrun them" issue?
>> No. 21239 ID: 9723b1
Is there some mass brainwashing effect going on? I've heard six other people say airships are their retirement dream in the past week.

I think someone paid OP vid to enter everyones youtube feed, and they loaded it with some MK Ultra shit.

Modern engines are a lot stronger than 1870s ones, airships can definitely power through storms. The only downside is that there would be more movement, kind of like a boat on a sea.

They can also outrun almost any storm, rise above a storm in some cases, or land and tie down before it hits. Losing an airship is more likely on the ground where the hangar roof might cave in.

Needs better pitch control or stability.

He should have brought an anchor with bungee cord. That way he could have landed facing into the wind, and then not gotten dragged along. The reason he did not do so here, I think, is that he would have been tangled up into the envelope had he been dragged downwind when facing into the wind. I need to watch the full episode at some point.

I think the basic concept is sound, it just needs to be implemented properly; but the lack of time, budget, and engineering ability is what results in such enjoyable to watch shenanigans and failures that made that show so fun.


Is the short of it that the Doping on the Hindenburg outer skin was extremely flammable?

There is a science fiction book by Dean Ing, "The Big Lifters" where in one of the subplots the protagonists developed a ground laser boosted (for altitude boosts over the mountains) airship system that could pick up and drop off multimodal freight containers from trains. His goal was to get big rig long haul 18 wheelers off the roads. I think you might enjoy it.
