The old B-52 can carry 20 of these things, but the bomber is ancient and the missiles were first fielded in 1982 and are probably obsolete. Development is being done for the Long-Range Stand-Off (LRSO) weapon, I would imagine.

In 2007, the USAF announced its intention to retire all of its AGM-129 ACMs, and to reduce the ALCM fleet by more than 500 missiles, leaving 528 nuclear cruise missiles. The ALCM force will be consolidated at Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, and all excess cruise missile bodies will be destroyed.

The reductions are in part a result of the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty requirement to go below 2,200 deployed nuclear weapons by 2012, with the AGM-129 ACM chosen because it has reliability problems and also higher maintenance costs.

Even with the SLEP, the remaining AGM-86s were to reach their end of service by 2020, leaving the B-52 without a nuclear mission. However, in 2012, the USAF announced plans to extend the useful life of the missiles until at least 2030.

The USAF planned to award a contract for the development of the replacement Long-Range Stand-Off (LRSO) weapon in 2015. Unlike the AGM-86, the LRSO will be carried on multiple aircraft, including the B-52, the B-2 Spirit, and the Northrop Grumman B-21. Like the AGM-86, the LRSO can be armed with either a conventional or nuclear warhead. The LRSO program is to develop a weapon that can penetrate and survive integrated air defense systems and prosecute strategic targets. Both conventional and nuclear versions of the weapon are required to reach initial operational capability (IOC) before the retirement of their respective ALCM versions, around 2030.

The technology development contracts were to be submitted before the end of 2012. In March 2014 a further 3-year delay in the project was announced by the Department of Defense, delaying a contract award until fiscal year 2018. The House Armed Services Committee moved to reject this delay. The delay was caused by financial pressures and an uncertain acquisition plan, and allowed by the long remaining service life left for the AGM-86 and lack of urgent necessity compared to other defense needs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGM-86_ALCM

At least it does not have severe problems with engines if some soot gets into the machine room. Not sure if it is the case for modern marine vessels.


>A Royal Navy Type 45 destroyer has been towed back into port just two days after it sailed following a total propulsion failure while taking part in Nato exercises.

>But the 4,500 tonne hi-tech ship limped back into Plymouth on Wednesday under tow and shadowed by three additional dockyard tugs as well as the Ministry of Defence police.

>The incident is the latest in a series of electrical failures which have plagued the Type 45 fleet and forced the Navy to admit that all six destroyers need major repairs.

>In October 2016, Duncan, escorted by the frigate HMS Richmond, was dispatched by the Ministry of Defence to intercept and "man-mark" a fleet of Russian Navy vessels, including their flagship Admiral Kuznetsov, which were passing through the English Channel on their way to Syria.

Probably a close proximity to the Kuznetsov did not remain without consequences for the ship.

Eh the RN's issues are more political in nature. During the Falklands they operated against a enemy with modern ASMs and trained pilots. If they had kept their single flat deck in service until then it'd have been more one-side, or perhaps wouldn't have even happened due to the threat of F-4s and Buccaneers. And they've maintained a credible submarine fleet which has had few accidents.

Anyways, the Admiral Musora Barzha has ceased operating aircraft.

>Many of the fast jets that were embarked on the Russia aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov have been flown to the main Russian air base in Syria, Airbus Defence and Space satellite imagery obtained by IHS Jane's shows.

>The imagery shows eight Russian Federation Navy Su-33 and one MiG-29KR jets alongside various Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) aircraft at Humaymim Air Base in Latakia province on 20 November.

>Kuznetsov can carry around 20 fast jets and is known to have embarked at least eight Su-33s for its current deployment in the Eastern Mediterranean, and at least four of the new MiG-29KR multirole fighters for the first time. One of the new jets crashed on 14 November, an incident that a Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) statement attributed to an unspecified "equipment fault during an approach for deck landing".

>The Russian news website Gazeta published an article on 21 November that cited a source knowledgeable about carrier operations as saying that the MiG-29KR was circling Kuznetsov due to a problem with one of the carrier's four arrestor cables when both its engines failed, forcing the pilot to eject.

>The MoD indicated that there were no problems with Kuznetsov's flight operations on 15 November, when it announced that its aircraft had carried out airstrikes against targets in Syria. It released video footage showing Su-33s loaded with unguided bombs and taking off from Kuznetsov, but the MiG-29KRs were not seen flying, hinting they may have been grounded after the crash.

>Military sources close to The Aviationist report that a Russian Navy Su-33 Flanker carrier-based multirole aircraft has crashed during flight operations from Admiral Kuznetsov on Saturday, Dec. 3.

>According to the report, the combat plane crashed at its second attempt to land on the aircraft carrier in good weather conditions (visibility +10 kilometers, Sea State 4, wind at 12 knots): it seems that it missed the wires and failed to go around* falling short of the bow of the warship.

>The pilot successfully ejected and was picked up by a Russian Navy search and rescue helicopter.

>Considered that on Nov. 14 a MiG-29K crashed while recovering to the aircraft carrier, if confirmed this would be the second loss for the air wing embarked on Admiral Kuznetsov in less than three weeks and a significant blow for the Russian Naval Aviation during its combat deployment off Syria.

>*Update: the Russian MoD has confirmed the incident. According to an official release the arresting wire snapped and failed to stop the aircraft.

For I am considering a 49cc scooter. I hate them. I hate them so much for being slow and dangerous. And not being as comfortable as a motorcycle.

But, I don't have to pay insurance on them, they're fuel efficient, cheap to maintain, and I can get a decent one for around $1000. If I get one, I can actually attend school and work, maybe even a second job which would help me afford a real vehicle (currently thinking of a Japanese econobox of some sort).

I'll hate myself for it, be terrified every time I'm on the road and will have to take the back roads everywhere, but it's a stepping stone to getting my life on track. And it's 1000 times better than the bus. Fuck the nasty bus with a schedule designed by Sheniqua.

But, goddamn, I'm not looking forward to taking one out on the street.

Celebrating /v/ surviving the revamp, let's talk about the latest repair/replacement/upgrade/any maintenance whatsoever we've had to perform on our vehicles.

On my way to work this morning, my rear end slumped out of nowhere, no apparent cause. I thought I had a flat initially, but started to realize that it was my shocks after experiencing no handling issues.

Limped into work, looked at it for a few minutes, had to clock in, then 2 hours later during my 15 minute break, I pulled the side panels off and discovered this. Apparently the retaining washer broke and the shock came off the bushing and was wedged between the exhausted and the frame.

Thank God, it's an easy fix and I work in a shop, plenty of tools at my disposal. Loosened the exhaust, freed the shock, realigned it and stole a washer from the Grainger box to reattach it and even reinforced it.

I spent that two hours stressing about the possibilities, thinking I was going to be spending more money or missing work.

1971 Dodge Super Bee: the Last Bee
Originally appearing as a more advanced version of the super successful Road Runner, Super Bee used the same recipe – take a simple cheap model, install a V8 engine as powerful as possible, and that’s it. Coronet model has been taken as a basis. The recipe worked quite well until 1971, when Coronet lost two-door versions. Then, in the case has entered the body from the then-produced Charger. That’s why the 1971 Dodge Super Bee is unique – is in fact the last classic Super Bee and the last used concept of a simple, cheap, but powerful muscle car.

Despite the fact that the Super Bee was positioned as the affordable muscle car (the cheapest 1971 Super Bee cost $3,300), the engines were not weak, and in fact in no way inferior to the more expensive and advanced competitors and “relatives”.

Super Bee of the 1971 model year was the first and only model with the base engine small block V8, just 5.6 liters of displacement, however producing enough power – 275 HP. Then ordinary big-block V8 engines were avaialble: 383 cubic-inch (6.3L) producing 300 HP; two 440 Magnum (7.2-liter) engines, producing 370 or 385HP (due to different settings and fuel system).

Hemi engines, which widely used on another muscle cars made by Chrysler corporation, could be installed in Super Bee only optionally. Nevertheless, it was the most powerful modification, producing 425 HP, with 426 CID of displacement. http://carswithmuscles.com/1971-dodge-super-bee/
