  1. Archery Thread

    If you could run it in batch mode (from the command line, this is not mentioned as a feature in the user guide) then it'd be easy to apply scipy.optimize or similar. GUI's are much harder
  2. General Naval Warfare News/Technology thread.

    The QE class has an air wing! They've demonstrated interoperability with modern unmanned air systems! https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/commercial-drone-lands-on-hms-queen-elizabeth-unchallenged/
  3. The Cartridge Collecting Thread

    People were developing military loadings for 30.06 after the late 80's? That seems unusually late, surely the 30.06 came first?
  4. General AFV Thread

    Would have been fine if the water under the ice was ~6" shallower, or if the drivers hatch was closed

  6. General AFV Thread

    I suspect someone mis-judged the thickness of the ice, and it fell in while crossing the ice
  7. General news thread

    I got the impression it was 3H2O + Al2 -> 3H2 + Al2O3 or similar, like thermite. Is that thermodynamically feasible?
  8. Snakes! The Best Squamates

    https://phys.org/news/2017-08-barred-grass-snake-species.html A very common subspecies of one of the 3 or so common snakes in the UK turns out to be a different species! It has stripes, instead of a collar!
  9. WoT v WT effort-thread

    Did the germans re-capture any of the captured panthers? So we could have another premium panther?
  10. General news thread

    Woman shot in vagina in sex game gone wrong This news item is not from where you'd expect
  11. Documents for the Documents God

    That (or a very similar) triple mount showed up on TOG2 initially, someone was really enamoured with the idea

  13. Aerospace and Ordnance discussion/news.

    The weight isn't unusual, non-air-launched ASM's tend to be several tonnes. With typical turbojet range, this is probably more scary than the chinese ballistic anti-ship missile - at least you can see a ballistic missile coming.
  14. General cars and vehicles thread.

    I'm more impressed that they managed to beat tesla, and on public roads. It's stretching the definition of a car at this point, of course, but it's a better hobby than driving sideways
