    Errrr.....Trident is NOT actually our toy (despite it independently attempting to nuke the US in the most recent trial).

    Let's Talk Dark Souls

    I can see why some of this was removed. I can also see that they could have incorporated so much more into the game. Profaned Capital is blatantly obvious. That was meant to be a MUCH bigger area. I think DS3 had huge shoes to fill, and there are definite improvements that could have been made. A lot of the re-balancing made the game pretty bland. Later on, they tried to buff poison, bleed, blessed, infusions but it was a little too late. The BIGGEST thing I think should have happened? They made you start in the undead settlement, and then you have multiple progression paths. DS3 is SUPER linear compared to 1 and 2. Honestly, once I beat the game a few times with a few different builds it was just shitty. I had no desire to go back and PVE unless I was doing a level 1 run or a speedrun. Combine that with build diversity being really bad early on (Early magic users, early hollow, even early dex really suck) and the fact that you have to go into new game plus for more respec attempts. AND the fact that NG+ is really, really shitty? Come on, at least Dark Souls 2 added more fucking enemies to their NG+ cycles. If fucking DS2 can do it so can you, ds3. The best thing I can say about DS3 is that it feels GREAT. It's the best game as far as controls and movement is concerned, hands down. They probably spent a ton of time on that and the lore was optional. They're like, "The Youtubers will fill in the blanks we leave."

    The ability for the UK to effectivily use nuclear weapons against the United States or American forces is dubious.

    General cars and vehicles thread.

    DOT3 and DOT4 are (as far a 99% of those using either are concerned) interchangeable, and compatable. A vacuum pulls a constant, that's what you want. You don't need a high vacuum, just a steady one. My first "power bleeder" used an old tube evacuator, the stem from a tube, and a pickle jar. And a lot of RTV silicone. For a temporary fix, score some of the aluminum foil tape used for AC service. Clean the area well, and put a layer on top and bottom, then bias. For a longer term fix, flattened coffee cans and a pop riveter, plus roofing asphalt will last an amazingly long time. As to the drain plug, I'd just plan for a new pan. You can still change the oil, you just need a bit of stiff tube that will slip down the dipstick tube, and reach the bottom of the pan. Then use your improvised brake bleeder, scaled up to a 5 gallon bucket with a tight lid. (This is actually how a lot of modern cars do oil changes, by sucking the oil out the dipstick tube).

    This scenario shouldn't feature in the SDSR, because any proper invasion of the UK (i.e. an existential threat) would warrant a nuclear response and no-one wins. Any threat nation invading just the UK would be an odd move, and would have to contend with almost every submarine in NATO en route (who've been salivating for a chance like that for decades).

    @Oedipus Wreckx-n-Effect Dark Souls 3 Original Plot An overview of what DS3's story played like early on before release. It's not entirely official, but there's some interesting details and L O R E implications. Also kind of seems like the game was another (relatively) rushed job by From like DS1.

    Must be very futuristic if they're considering a hovertank. The hologram showing the 3d model is a neat touch

    Atleast it uses a modern gun.... and isn't 75 tonnes fully upgraded....

    Is the program budget set for approximately 800 million euro, or are Rheinmetall saying they can do the LEP including switching a gun for that amount? Thanks btw. Still better than the CR2. #ChangeMyMind

    AFV Engines

    If your numbers for the improvement of modern turbodiesel engines over the V903 were no good then that is fine. Either way we have to wait and see the results of the ACE engine's testing in a few months.

    At least nobody puts the C1 in that competition!

    The interesting ship photos/art thread.

    Concepts of Strogiy corvette. I think their 3D renderer just don't work properly.

    AFV Engines

    But my own math didn't? The only math I did was comparing BFSC of the V908 with a representative figure for a current fielded-in-number diesel. And I just realized there was a major flaw in my math too (this is what I get for getting nosleep...), the V908 power figured I used was in Gross, not Net. Which is going to knock a good deal off of it. It's actually a pain to get the exact fuel consumption figures for that old thing. I did no math comparing the new engines simply because there's no way to. I'd love to see the BFSC numbers of the new engine, but they don't exist - and their only claim for "improved efficiency" is end-user efficiency (i.e. Bradley will be 25% more efficient with the engine, which could likely be met with zero increase in thermodynamic efficiency, instead merely getting rid of parasitic drag and having a more engine reserve power so it isn't constantly floored amongst others...).

    Gun is being considered a key factor for Rheinmetall's offer in their slides for the investors' conference in January 2019. Always find it ridiculous how people decide to speak about "the three best Western tank" (or four in this case) and then include the Challenger 2 over the Leclerc...

    Which just goes to show what the 'Tough On Defence Tories' are actually worth.....An island nation without anti-shipping or long range air-defence missiles! FFS! Toffee nosed wankers. Hopefully, once Jezza gets in, his (alleged) Russian chums will sell us S-400 and Bastion.
