  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
  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)
  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
  12. @N-L-M Thank you! For the weight-lifting capability, is this lifting to like shoulder height or above their head? Also, could you clarify: What should we use for the mounting bracket weight for ERA/NERA? 10-30% is a wide variation. And Is there a specification for the steel one might use in a kinetic energy penetrator, specifically in terms of hardness?
  13. That's the spirit! But seriously, if the TC has turn out for a patrol and gets shot by a Mormon sniper, it'd be nice if they had some more protection than their uniform top and a cigarette case.
  14. I mean I just want to know if NLM will let me play with my aramids and para-aramids or not
  15. I mean, it'll be something pretty light, like the CVC Armor Vest, maybe with plate bags for a fairly low profile rifle plate.
  16. I just want to give the tank crews fire-protective clothing and body armor. It's nothing to do with the tank armor itself, but with keeping the crew from burning to death or getting killed when some Mormon shoots them in the chest while they're turned out.
  17. @N-L-M What is CA’s production capacity for Al2O3, SiC, and aramids? edit: And Nomex
  18. I think the side armor is fairly reasonable if you have the right idea, and design a large enough vehicle to support thick side armor
  19. ~~The package we’re using is better.~~ Edit: RIP my math skills, I was wrong.
  20. I meant is it 100g of elemental tungsten, or 100g of a given tungsten alloy? What about Rhenium? We can refine it from Molybdenum mine tailings and we should have a surplus given it’s uses in oil refining.
  21. What are our holdings in Colorado and Nevada? Particularly, do we have access to the Henderson and Climax Molybdenum mines in Colorado, or the Mount Hope, Nevada; Lucky Jack, Colorado; or Rico Deposit, Colorado molybdenum deposits? Additionally, how is the tungsten being assayed for use in armor piercing projectiles?
