  1. https://www.history.navy.mil/our-collections/photography/numerical-list-of-images/nhhc-series/s-file/S-584-110.html An 80,000 ton battleship proposal, meant to be the maximum size that could still use the Panama Canal. this one in particular is my favorite out of all the 80,000 ton proposals because she is armed with sextuple, 16 inch turrets, for a broadside of 24 shells, or 3 times that of the Colorado class (or all 3 Colorado’s combined). Also has 18 inch belt armor and a claimed maximum speed of 25 knots.
  2. Hmmmm, for them to gain experience points to upgrade their virtual tanks, they would have to play mostly the online multiplayer... which is certainly how real life warfare is fought... *has flashbacks to kamikaze Ju-87s and Uber flanking, spawn camping light tanks*
  3. I know this says WoT and WT, but would this also include World of Warships (WoWs), since several people have posted about world of warplanes?
  4. They’ve started to get below 3 hours in 100% Eternal runs 2 hours, 17 minutes for Doom 2016, as well
  5. Another pretty good metal soundtrack, some of my favorites being “Inferno” (4:21), “Devil”, and “Phobos Anomaly”. Names and times of specific tracks are in the description of the video. Also, some of Mick Gordon’s previous work:
  6. I guess I’ll say it: it’s not as good as the 2016 soundtrack. None of the tracks really stand out to me, unlike the original’s “Rip and Tear” “Damnation” “BFG Division” or even the short “At Doom’s Gate”. A lot of the notes used also sound a little to electronic/synthetic, and the base is notably reduced. Also, this soundtrack starts with what could be considered ambiance music, unlike 2016’s opening being a short monologue and then directly into some of the best metal I’ve ever heard.
  7. Saudi AF is too busy bombing schools and hospitals to attack the Houthis
  8. Was about to ask the same question about size limit. Now, I do remember that Mowag made a 10x10 version of the Piranha once, might go with something like that. There is only the 30mm auto cannon and the RRs? No larger auto cannons or artillery / field guns?
  9. I guess I should have specified that the bullets were of similar construction, and proportionally scaled to each other, but yes, bullet anatomy is just as important as its striking energy.
  10. Conversely, if you’re looking for something more empirical to base your judgments on, you can calculate the energy each bullet has within that range; more energy would imply more penetration for dealing with body armors and punching through make-shift fortifications like stone/concrete, though this is not always the case.
  11. After getting some time to read through the article provided by @Militarysta (thank you), I can sorta see how they can pull it off: Manganese and Silicon are both great for making strong steel, manganese increasing the harden-ability of low carbon steels, and silicon also increasing the harden-ability, and having the added benefit of maintaining the harness after tempering. http://navweaps.com/index_nathan/metalprpsept2009.php#Manganese http://navweaps.com/index_nathan/metalprpsept2009.php#Silicon The retention of the bainite is still a mystery to me, as tempering and annealing (as discussed in the article) would transform the bainite with the remaining austenite into a more stable structure (again, pearlite), though maybe the large amount of silicon present (1.56-1.61% by mass) is interfering? I’m curious too see how this armor develops, if they can make the plates thicker, or if they can keep the quality control while making these plates on a full industrial level.
  12. Huh, that’s weird, usually Bainite is undesired for armor or structural components due to excessive brittleness: http://navweaps.com/index_nathan/metalprpsept2009.php#Bainite pearlite being just as tough but less brittle (on average) and martensite also being less brittle, and even tougher. Unless they want the contents of the container to fall out after the first hit, like ERA or something similar, this doesn’t look like an advancement.
  13. That fire resistance is probably only valid whilst he is still mortal, and will become null when he dies; Satan rarely denies himself the pleasure of fucking with his servants.
