  6. AFV Engines

    Probably just what they have. The engine design bureau at Kharkov decamped for Chelyabinsk in 1941 and never returned. Most of the brain power behind engines was at either Leningrad or Chelyabinsk. Omsk and Stalin/Volgograd also had good teams for light tank engines. I think it is highly telling Kharkov didn't have an attached engine bureaus like the other factories did and did every thing in house. Also Uralmash did some cool stuff like the 16 cylinder engine in the Object 279. Edit: According to DAV Kharkov only did two noteworthy engine designs in the 45-65 period: 5TD and the 5TDF.
  7. AFV Engines

    5TDF, the engine in the T-64: An engine that was notorious for only being capable being built at Kharkov, which was not surprising since it couldn't even be produced at Kharkov for a few years. Meanwhile in Buzuluk, where they know what they are doing, we got the UTD-30, a short stroke design that was meant to be 15/15, a engine with 150mm stroke and 150 cylinder. But because of an arbitrary height requirement set by Morozov it was canned. If that looks small its because it's 1350mm long 940mm wide 775 tall ChKZ decided it was a cool idea to transversely mount a 1000hp engine so made the DTN-10. 10 clyinder engine and in a Soviet first ChKZ used exhaust gas in the supercharger: Note engine placement The backup engine was even smaller. It's the super charged variant of the UTD-30.

    They're Hungarian legitimists and seek to place a Hapsburg on the throne of Hungary.
  9. America's view on Monarchies.

    America historically has had a very negative view towards to monarchies to the point that for over a century it was commonly said in America that the US was the only free, democratic society in the world.
