  1. I am curious, what would be needed to penetrate the Norman at 1-2Km range? Speaking about both HEAT and KE. Would a 120mm be sufficent? Or would a 150mm be needed?
  2. I am just joking. I am guessing the practical limit is 40 ton, since more than 4 axles are rare on AFVs. @Sturgeon I am going to laugh my ass off if this ends up being the winning submisson, just replace the crane with a cannon.
  3. Thank you, this cleared up a lot of things for me. I have been looking into torque vectoring transmissions and differential steering for electric and hybrid transmissions. I saw the transmission made by University of Munich: Here is another one from Borg Warner: Call me a idiot or something, but I can't for the love of god understand these. It can't be as simple as using a electric motor and a clutch to apply additional power to one of the two wheels right? I have also been pon
  4. Could anyone with a good understand of gearboxes explain how this steering differential works? As far as I understand, the drive input powers the system, and when the steering differential's RPM equals zero, the torque is distributed equally. When the steering input rotates clockwise, the right side drive gets the most torque, proportional to the steering input torque. When the steering input rotates counter clockwise, the left side drive gets the most torque, proportional to the steering input torque. When the drive input is put in neutral, the steering input
  5. If you are going to splice some wires, for the love of god, unless you are good at soldering, use a solder sleeve. And ALWAYS use heat shrink to protect it, worst case, use wulk tape to cover it.
  6. Does states not have their own welfare programs? Also, guess what 50% of Norway's export is, and what we have shit loads of around Svalbard and the arctics. I am not sure what the health care service in the US is, but Norway's healthcare is "adequate", or a bit worse.
  7. Go ahead, you guys would still probably tax me less than the Norwegian government. I would not mind a tax break.
  8. The Danes plan to make Greenland a independent nation, meaning it would be a political catastrophe to propose selling it to the US. However, the US might leverage making Greenland a territory or state, which would be a good offer to Greenland, who would not be able to leverage any political power on the world stage, has zero money for defense and is already defended by the US. Access to the US market without tariffs would also be a huge plus for the Greenland economy. Personally, I think Norway should be given Greenland, as it was taken by Denmark from Norway by force.
  9. I have a few questions regarding US gun laws: Do US firearms come with a identification number that is registered to an owner, that the police can search up in a database? In that case, could police then do random check ups on people's firearms to check if the firearm has been stolen? In the case the registration number is gone, or scratched up, the police could confiscate the firearm, until the owner gets a new registration plate or re-registers the gun. This way, the US would know how many guns each person owns, and how many in total in the US. A national fir
  10. So what is the deal with the US wanting to buy Greenland again? Is it to claim more of the arctic continental shelf? To box in Canada? To protect the northern atlantic sea route from invasoin? Is it because of the raw resources found in Greenland with the ice going away? To use Hans Island as a pretext to invade Canada? Or do Trump just want some ice for his beer? If we say that the Danes would sell Greenland to the US or the Greenland goverment voted to join the US, would it become a state or a terretory like Puerto Rico? Sou
  11. No, sadly I did not. Though it is set up to be able to take a large array, with a lot of weight to spare. I apologize for the incomplete submission.
  12. Apparently there was a attempted mass shooting in Bærum, Norway. A guy armed with a shotgun and a pistol, plus some other guns shot up a Mosque, but luckily failed to kill anyone, and was subdued by a 75 year old man. He is now charged with attempted murder of three people. He was a ethnically white Norwegian man in his early 20s. He has no previous notable crime record and lives in the same area as the Mosque. He wore a NATO sweater (Norwegian army sweater) and a bullet proof vest. The media really wanted to hammer in the fact that he was ethnically Norweg
  13. In the area, where I live, which is not more expensive compared to the rest of the country, the square meter price is roughly 3750 USD per square meter. This makes large houses expensive, so you want to use space as efficiently as possible. Electric floor heating is almost universally used only on bathrooms until recently, since they have tiles, which get very cold. Since the total watt usually roughly equals your average heater, and the very cheap power we have here, the electricity efficiency is not really a factor. What is a huge factor, is installation cost. Adding a boiler, water pu
  14. Nordic Feminist Design Division presents: P2055 “Gaupen” Table of basic statistics: Parameter Value Mass, combat 65 metric ton Length, combat (transport) 7050mm Width, combat (transport) 3877mm Height, combat (transport) 2000mm Ground Pressure, MMP (n
  16. Not sure where to post this, but I found this interesting:
  17. Paper panzer, so colors are still being decided upon. Current model aims at a high cd coefficent. A more track orientated model might be developed later. I never really get why people have this kind of dirty pleasure about Crossovers in my country, or SUVs as they are called here. Reasons people state that they like them are: 1. They have a lot of cargo space. 2. They have better ground clearance. 3. They need it go visit their cabin. 4. They feel they have a better view of the surroundings. 5. They like sitting more upright.
