There doesn't appear to be a general motorcycle thread on the board, so here's one.

I'm strongly considering getting a motorcycle. It's not for the cool factor, but because they seem like extremely affordable, practical commuting vehicles. The only thing that would keep me from getting one is my local climate. Anybody here ride in the desert? What's it like wearing All The Gear, All The Time in the Mojave in August? How long can one ride when it's 106 degrees out before it becomes intolerable?

Sprint Missile https://youtu.be/kvZGaMt7UgQ
The Sprint missile was part of the ABM or Anti Ballistic Missile system. The missile would carry a 20 kiloton warhead and would travel at hypersonic speeds to find and destroy an incoming enemy ICBM. Watch as the missile approaches speeds upward of Mach 10 in 5 seconds. The missile begins to glow from air friction. The ABM system became functional on October 1, 1975 for one day and was then shut down. See more about ICBMs and ABM systems in the film "Nukes In Space - The Rainbow Bombs."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprint_(missile) The Sprint accelerated at 100 g, reaching a speed of Mach 10 in 5 seconds. Such a high velocity at relatively low altitudes created skin temperatures up to 3400°C (6200°F), requiring an ablative shield to dissipate the heat. It was designed for close-in defense against incoming nuclear weapons. As the last line of defense it was to intercept the reentry vehicles that had not been destroyed by the Spartan, with which it was deployed.
The conical Sprint was stored in and launched from a silo. To make the launch as quick as possible, the cover was blown off the silo by explosive charges; then the missile was ejected by an explosive-driven piston. As the missile cleared the silo, the first stage fired and the missile was tilted toward its target. The first stage was exhausted after only 1.2 seconds, but produced 2,900 kN (650,000 lbf) of thrust. The second stage fired within 1 – 2 seconds of launch. Interception at an altitude of 1,500 m to 30,000 m took at most 15 seconds.
>> No. 21676 ID: a16d42
  A hypersonic two-stage, solid-fueled anti-ballistic missile, designed as a last resort short-range defense against incoming enemy nuclear warheads in their terminal phase.

It was developed as a counterpart to the long-range LIM-49 Spartan. The Sprint missile was essentially the last card on the table for any enemy nuclear warhead that evaded the initial Spartan intercepts. Because the terminal velocity of nuclear re-entry vehicles is so incredibly high (roughly 17,400 MPH / 28,000 KPH), there is little time to stop them.

In order to rapidly facilitate a launch, the silo doors housing Sprint missiles were blown away by explosive charges, after which an explosively-driven piston kicked the missile from the silo. An instant later, the first stage rocket engine ignited and burned for just 1.2 seconds, accelerating it at 100g with 650,000 pounds of thrust (294,000 kg)

This was part of the Safeguard Anti Ballistic Missile System setup in the 1970s to protect the Minuteman II ICBM field out of Grand Forks ND. Originally it was designed to defend a city, but they decided that was crazy so they scaled down the program to defend the missile fields. The system was operational for a week or so before it was deactivated because of a treaty. They built a huge nuclear hardened fire control radar, the MRS that locals called the PAR, and supposedly could detect a basketball sized object as it came over the north pole and Hudson's Bay. The 4 remote sprint launch sites were 20 or so miles away from the main radar. Crazy stuff. The feds abandoned the site and a photography crew went in to document it a few years ago. The local university, the University of North Dakota, is working to purchase the land and use it as a training space for UAVs for its aeronautical program. http://rebrn.com/re/missile-accelerates-at-g-reaching-a-speed-of-mach-in-seconds-beg-2265707/

Now that I've checked some recent developments, it turns out that there's a new system, which is a replacement of the old USSR A-135 anti-ballistic defence.

A-135 used to be a stationary, ground-set missile launch complex located all around Moscow, with radar stations positioned at the outer limits of USSR back in the day. It has the main purpose of protecting the capital from incoming nuclear missiles (a limited amount of them, that is), and at that, it uses 2-stage interception system. At longer distances it uses a large, long-ranged nuclear missile with huge thermonuclear payload designed to take out the missile with an explosion, while in shorter distances (in fact, several kilometres from the launch site) it uses short-ranged, very fast missiles to destroy them before the explosion. The maximum flight time is such missile is 12 seconds, and maximum speed is over 2 kilometres per second. Which is why it has a kinetic penetrator instead of any warhead at all.

The new A-235 system is a second attempt (after first attempt was lost in economic decline of 90-s) to replace old vehicles and expand their capability. Compared to that, more famous S-500 anti-ballistic system is a mobile platform with similar purpose, but actually has only one major component instead of several. A-135 and it's successor uses Don-2N radar station, which is functioning is fully automatic mode.

Problem with making planes without landing gear to belly-land on carrier decks covered with soft rubber is that the plane...
- Would have to be winched and taken to the elevator, catapult or placed on a wheeled cradle because it has no wheels to move around on deck.
- The plane cannot land with any stores under the wings like fuel tanks, rockets, missiles, bombs, gun pods or, as with this EA-18G Growler, delicate electronic jamming pods. Because they would be smashed upon landing.

Even using stealth fighters that keep their stores in internal bomb bays, the rubber landing method would still be insane.

Lord, love a Leduc!
Designed by René Leduc in 1938, it was built at the Breguet Aviation factory after a protracted, semi-secret construction phase kept at arm's length from German occupation authorities, and was finally completed in 1947. The aircraft featured a double-walled fuselage, with the pilot controlling the aircraft from within the inner shell. The circular gap between this and the outer, cylindrical shell provided the inlet for the ramjet.

Testing: It could not take off unassisted (ramjets cannot produce thrust at zero airspeed and thus cannot move an aircraft from a standstill) and was therefore intended to be carried aloft by a Sud-Est Languedoc mothership and released at altitude. Following test flights of the Languedoc/0.10 composite, independent unpowered gliding tests began in October 1947. After three such flights, the first powered flight was made on 21 April 1949 over Toulouse. Released in a shallow dive at an altitude of 3,050 m (10,010 ft), the engine was tested at half power for twelve minutes, propelling the aircraft to 680 km/h (420 mph).

In subsequent tests, the 0.10 reached a top speed of Mach 0.85 and demonstrated the viability of the ramjet as an aviation powerplant, with a rate of climb of 40 m/s (7,900 ft/min) to 11,000 metres (36,000 ft), exceeding that of the best jet fighters of the time.

Of the two 0.10s originally built, one was destroyed in a crash in 1951 and the other severely damaged in another crash the following year. Both pilots survived with serious injuries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leduc_0.10

- French Leduc 0.10 1949 ramjet interceptor carried by a Sud-Est Languedoc mothership.
A piloted ramjet, first flown in powered flight on April 21st 1949. As a ramjet needs forward speed to operate, it was carried aloft by a Sud-Est Languedoc mothership and released at altitude. In flight testing, it reached speeds as high as M=.85. On display in the Musee de l'Air et de l'Espace. Of the two names on the aircraft, Rene Lorin was the inventor of the ramjet and Jean Villey published the detailed theory of the ramjet. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Leduc-010/1492573/L/

The Hiller YH-32 Hornet (company designation HJ-1) was an American ultralight helicopter built by Hiller Aircraft in the early 1950s. It was a small and unique design because it was powered by two Hiller 8RJ2B ramjet engines mounted on the rotor blade tips which weigh 13lbs each and deliver an equivalent of 45 h.p. for a total of 90 h.p. Versions of the HJ-1 Hornet were built for the United States Army and the United States Navy in the early 1950s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiller_YH-32_Hornet

What the shit? Looks like a couple of V1 buzz bomb engines.

> How ever even this stunning aircraft was out performed by the new jets of 1944/45 and like the Soviets in an attempt to prolong the live of the "Mustang" as a front-line fighter a pair of Ford PJ-31-1 pulsejets were fitted on to the under side of the wings. The results were similar to the Soviet experiments on piston engined aircraft with added pulsejets, an increase in top speed when in use, but with excessive fuel consumption and high drag when not, the idea was dropped soon after the tests.

Indeed it is.

  There's also the Motorjet (also conceptualized by Rene Lorin) which is where you use a piston engine to run the compressors on a jet engine. Only the Italians and Russians really explored the concept, the Italians with the Campini C.1 aircraft (one of the first jets) and the Russians with the MiG-13, a prop fighter developed as a crash response to the Me 262, which used a turbojet as a booster and was never accepted for service due to being obsolete (by the time they figured out the engine stuff the MiG-9 existed) and having a number of design flaws.
