  1. Well, it is a proven way of getting from feudalism to space travel in merely 40 years.
  2. Just the usual capitalism. Outsourcing, budgeting, corruption, profit before quality, etc.
  3. It does use similar tracks to Tiger 1 and weight is near to that of tiger 2. And I made a rough design for a 1000 tonne fortress.. However, I think anything at 100 tonnes with 60ies tech is a specialised tool and not a principal fighting vehicle. With weak air component I admit the weight would offer neat potential. But it would run into problems at navigating some of Texas' terrain and Texan tactics are not well known to me. Not sure if their combined arms would offer sufficient protection for fewer large and expensive vehicles. Maybe for another contest.
  4. I specified the armour thickness and composition, then calculated the angled plate surface with trigonometry. Would that suffice for the commission?
  5. She is a handful! With my limited experience, I would check if you accounted for all the components. You can also reduce time by avoiding designing the special armour.
  6. I see you had a bad break up with an anime girl, hoho. I never gave much thought to Nazi ideology before I got invested in the online forums. Europe is very calm with it being swept on the wasteland of history. Well, you ought to understand it. Not every white settler was a racist during the Apartheid.
  7. The overlapping road wheels and nomenclature are there obviously AS A JOKE. Since you already tossed me into the nazi corner, I might as well make fun of it.
  8. That is no problem. I accept that the technical talk cannot be separated from the political context, in this case. I think I've been plenty accommodating and reiterated numerous times that I have no sympathies for the Nazis, their ideology or crimes. But you can't sell me arguments against axial-flow jet engines or Death traps under disguise of anti-nazism. Sure they exist, you are right to be vigilant. But you lot also got very comfortable in abusing anti-racism to push your national bias around. Perhaps you haven't noticed, your overblown claims are the primary ammunition of neo-nazis. Stick to the objectivity and there is no space for politics or racial theories.
  9. You really ought to read something on German history. The designations and the technology only comes from the Nazi party for ideological crusaders. As is with all military things in today's Germany, it is Wehrmacht's legacy, as the latest precursor in the long history of the German/Prussian army. Even if institutions were abolished and the politics tries hard to appear to have broken with the past, many of those people involved in ww2 were very much present during the design of vehicles up until Leopard 2, if still alive, and all had very little to do with politics or ideology. You can't push everything from 1933 to 1945 in the Nazi corner.
