Space and recovery ships you say...
I was at McDill on Saturday and had the opportunity to talk to the pilot who was from Texas. I asked him about the “baby canards” and found out they reduce flexing and stabilize the air frame, they oscillate at a frequency of 240 hertz. I also noticed that they installed an auxiliary fuel tank in the 1st bomb bay.…
I will bet you a box of Cuban cigars it ends in a Berlin Wall like flash. The difference will be, like in Berlin, rapid cross border activity from a relatively well off expat population in the US.
What makes a paratrooper is not falling out of an aircraft attached to a static line. What makes paratroopers different is that when we go, we are fully committed. There is no getting home the way you got there. While being surrounded makes lesser infantry break, paratroopers voluntarily agree to start off surrounded… Read more
That is your reserve and your backpack that makes you look like a pregnant rhinoceros beetle. As soon as you unass the plane, there are two pulldown tabs that connect the backpack to you. If you pull those, your 100 pound pack then drops down on a 20 foot tether. This line now gives you another few ways of getting… Read more
I’m assuming you live in England? Or somewhere else in Europe? If you are, then I’m guessing in some part of said European country where the ratio of muslims of any stripe can be counted on one hand? Otherwise, you’d not be so blasè and ignorant in your comment. Read more
Belgium is known for two things: chocolate and child abuse. But they only invented the chocolate to get to the kids.
I don’t think I ever said ALL muslims were at war with America. I probably said that it’s a much larger percentage than anyone wants to admit, and until they get a handle on their own crazies, we have to consider Islam to be fundamentally incompatible with western civilization for the sake of our own cultural… Read more
Eh, it’s only half-way “GM.” The drivetrain, chassis, and IP are GM (based on the GMC TopKick/Chevy Kodiak, the dash is that of a Cadillac STS), but the “body” is actually made by Executive Coach Builders of Springfield, Mo. I’ll be interested to see what chassis GM is using now, as the TopKick/Kodiak medium-duty line… Read more
Well, on the subject of that...why is the Gulf of California not called the Gulf of Mexico and why is the Gulf of Mexico not called the American Gulf
This is the key point of 5th gen warfare. Systems and data integration has little to do with hardware and much to do with making systems designed from different periods in different languages to do different things to accept data from one another in a combat acceptable fashion. Read more
I’m just waiting for KGB, FSB and GRU so that we can discuss the US’s illegal annexation of California.....
Piss off. You want to see people die? Go to Iraq; there’s lots of deaths over there. All I want to do is read an automotive blog, not watch a man die then get told to “grow the fuck up”. You and so many others commenting are too insensitive for society. It is you who needs to recognize your immaturity and grow up.
