  1. I'll be submitting a cartridge once I finish working it up, probably by the end of the week. Currently I am estimating in excess of 900ft-lb and 32 pine boards at 600 yards, and above the transonic regime to 1,000 yards. I have not downselected fancy bullet designs between a monolithic gilding metal OTM and a reverse-base-drawn exposed penetrator AP design. I have high hopes for this cartridge, and believe that it will prove quite successful.
  2. I'm looking forward to seeing what else turns up aside from Toxn's and my team's stuff
  3. Question: Where do we discuss the entries, here or the submission thread?
  4. That’s not at all what I did! If anything, it’s more similar to a Pershing II
  5. In further pursuit of open discussion of the development of tracked vehicles, SNVZ is proud to offer the RSD-1 Innovator intermediate range ballistic missile complex, capable of delivering a 425kg warhead to 1,800km with sub-100m CEP, or a heavier warhead to shorter ranges. Also, the tracks have gone missing. If anyone sees them, please return them. Below is an image of the 15Zh6 Innovator ballistic missile, which should deconstruct notions of masculinity and phallic imagery via its role defending the peace-loving matriarchal society of the DPRC, and deliver rapid reeducation through either chemical, high explosive, or special warheads in under 30 minutes, with a response time of approximately five minutes from receiving a launch order to firing, from the transit mode at a pre-prepared firing position.
  6. The answer is something like three weeks of ANSYS and a lot of research. I would have used a supersonic wind tunnel but they’re phenomenally expensive
  7. It's an Armor Piercing, Solid Fuel Ramjet-powered GLATGM with an 850mm long, 50mm diameter molybdenum tool steel penetrator, capable of killing the reference vehicle at ranges in excess of 7,500m.
  8. I have been permitted to pull back the veil of secrecy, and post a picture of the 125mm fully-tracked gun-tank Object 138, along with some vital statistics. 125mm Fully-tracked gun-tank Object 138 Heavy Tank of Novel Type Mass: <47,500kg Length: 6.76 m (hull) 15.42 m (gun forward) Width: 2.30 m Height: 2.41 m Crew: Three (Commander, Gunner, Driver) Armor: Novel composite armor in excess of objective requirements as stated in the RFP Main Armament: 125mm 2A35 high-velocity smoothbore gun with autoloader - APCBC performance in excess of M-62T2 and in excess of requirements and with engagement - 45 rounds, with 30 in autoloader. - Equipped with a gun-launched antitank guided missile of novel type "Armor Piercing Solid Fuel RamJet" 3UBM1 and 3UBM2 providing lethality against all known vehicles between 450 and 7,500m. Secondary Armament: - 7.62mm coaxial Machine Gun PKT, 3000 rounds; - 14.5mm commander’s Machine Gun KPVT Powerpack: VPK-3 Powerpack with Engine VDS-2330 and Transmission CD-1750; >1,500 horsepower; eight speeds. Power to Weight Ratio: >30hp/ton (2000kg per ton) Top Speed: 75 kph (governed) Suspension: Torsion bar, six per side; shock absorbers on all. Ground Clearance: 490mm Fuel Capacity: 1,200 liters internal, 416 liters aux. drums Operational Range: 460 km internal; 720km w/drums The vehicle is also equipped with advanced digital computer systems for fire control and 1,200-1,600 FOM image intensifying tubes, details of the manufacturing processes of which will be discussed in our proper submission paper. The vehicle is also equipped with advanced encrypted radio equipment using the novel TSEC/KY-57 FEINSTEIN unit, details of which will be discussed in the submission paper. Here is a larger version of the above image. 3UBM2
  9. @Lord_James NLM has previously said that these are not available for vehicle armor (I already tried)
  10. Define "Armor" -- do I count the turret and hull structure, or just the armor packages?
  11. That reminds me, we should all make sure to put Prop 65 warnings on everything
