    Here comes more T-64 stuff. Seems the Kharkov factory, 1972. 
    I don't own any of this material. Enjoy.

    This one? Protection of cabin.
     
     
    Yes, this missile appears to be 9M666 Photoshop-M tactical ground-to-internet missile.

    Looks like a very high sink rate. The aircraft is fully flared on landing, so either the approach angle was too steep or the plane thought it was several hundred meters higher up than it really was. The bounce is characeristic of extremely heavy landings- the undercarriage can't damp it all out, and the pneumatic springs shove the airframe right back into the air. It looks like the impact may have been violent enough to fully compress the springs to their mechanical stops, at which point the shock gets transferred directly to the aircraft. The shock bending loads on the structure trying to accelerate the heavy nose cantilever from "steep descent" to "rebound" exceeded the load limit and the airframe broke where the bending moment causes maximal stress- at the base of the cantilever.

    The Bitterroot recurve project is on track:
     

    The design in bowsim.
     

    The projected curvature and draw.
     

    The stress along the limb at full draw. This curve isn't very optimal, but I was working around some constraints imposed by my tools (ie: hogging off material from the belly using a plane and power plane).
     

    The steaming rig. The bow was steamed for an hour before being pressed into the jig and tied in place. Tying the limb tips proved to be a problem.
     

    The bow after steaming. It's going to dry for 24 hours like this before I put a linen backing onto it and start final tillering. The final draw weight should be ~13kg (28lb) at 80cm. The backing always adds more than expected though.
     
    Edit: she's almost done.

    Fuck me, shouldn't at least some demonstration of actual intelligence be required, before you are employed by the intelligence services.
