Ok, I'm going to make the dreaded question.
Could normal size mechas (like, 1.5 storey tall) be actually viable in warfare?

Seems extremely impractical. Realistically if there was a move away from wheels instead you would see crab like designs rather than bipedal humanoid designs due to their maneuverability.

Why is the soundtrack in this Army training video so bumping? Everything from that error was funky smooth.

 No.1627

Teetering rotors are a cheap design and a bad choice for military helicopters. Only American military helicopters like the UH-1 used it. This is because military helicopters fly low and when climbing over the top of ridges (like in this video) they enter low G and can have mast bumping. This problem is solved with fully articulated rotors.

Jazz Fusion was popular during 70s and was progressively being refined in the 80s til smooth Jazz would develop in the 90s.

yes that could work. you'd have to heat water to boiling, quickly
we should need about 1 g of water. 4.184 J/K plus 2257 J to vaporize it. 2.6 kJ total. dump this into a load with lots of surface area for the water to boil off of. maybe use steel wool

There's a higher powered model out now, the GR-1 Anvil. https://arcflashlabs.com/product/gr-1-anvil/ There's also this one from another manufacturer. https://www.northshoresportsclub.com/coil-accelerator

All of these coilguns are inefficient because they have large gaps between the coils and ferromagnetic projectiles. Induction coilguns are the future and I think the easiest induction coilgun to build is the lateral disc launcher on this page. http://www.coilgun.eclipse.co.uk/coilgun_basics_3.html

the Thompson ring launcher looks like it would work best
one benefit of induction guns is that you don't have to shut off the coils

What's with random stamped bits on guns? Like the ridges on the dust cover, or the bits on the folding stock that have seemingly no use. Does it stop them bending/denting as easily or something like that?

Doesn't really warrant a full thread so general questions thread I guess

bump

 No.1549

>>1528
Its usually for internal parts, kind of like handrails in a bus, keeps them in place better. The extra rivets on the folding stock are because it's actually several connective parts to the stock to make sure it's steady and doesn't bend. The ridges on the dustcover conform to the general outline of the firing mechanism.

>Well if your going to fighting a modern 1st world military state the most important thing you'd want to do is knock out their air force so you can run military operations in the open and cut off the opponents main advantages.
I had a dream where the American government was couped by a militarist faction and I had to help some dudes attack the local airbase and what I did was make a shit ton of rc planes that carried explosives to swarm the air base and knock out the fighters and bombers there. Idunno could work irl, I'm sure that some military force has tried that in the past somewhere.

Errors:
1. Get lots of drone parts in bulk identical to ones used in attack.
2. Recovery results in being tracked. No recovery results in delay.

Iron dome missiles are expensive, so all you need to do is fire lots of cheap decoys until they run out of missiles. Then fire your rockets with real warheads.

So what I don't get about these missiles is that they are undetected by RWR until their active stage ("going pitbull" as they call it), which only happens once the missile is already very close to its targeted aircraft, making dodging it very difficult. What I don't get is how does the missile guide itself towards its target before it becomes active? Why does it not trigger RWR during this period?

Uuugggggh here’s the simplest explanation

Microphones are gadgets that take in sound from a sound absorptive surface called a diaphragm that moves based off the vibration it receives that hits a coil triggering a vibration a circuit uses to produce sound whose volume is based off the amount of energy used up and the intensity of the vibration

Radars work a lot like microphones but they produce light or sound and take whatever object that signal hits back towards their diaphragm

Radar missiles are well missiles with radars equipped by them, these missiles are coated with light reflective material to ensure that any radar trying to detect their presence will have ejected light sent knocked off course which REDUCES not prevent the chances of a missile being detected. As a missile finds its target based off scans it comes closer into contact with potential radars increasing chances for detection and hence there’s your answer OP

They also use inertial guidance so the RWR doesn't go off.
