  1. The tube should be the snorkel for the engine exhaust. The trapezoidal object is the snorkel adapter to fit over the engine intake.
  2. To confirm, this is still just intend to be an export vehicle, yes?
  3. Ahh, I definitely should have figured we already had such photos in here.
  4. Kinda curious what the inside of one of those looks like.
  5. Big time. The Suckling was... something else. Rich Evan's laugh shall not be contained.
  6. If you manage to throw the ball/rock/hand grenade into one of the buckets, while receiving fire from the .50 cal, do you win a prize?
  7. Experimental XM1101 LAMPSS (Large Area Mobile Protected Smoke System) equipped with a smoke generator and Hydra smoke rockets.
  8. I haven't watched the entirety of this one. I did see The Critical Drinker's response vid, which seemed to cover most everything but was much shorter, so I'm curious what the hackfrauds had to talk about for so long.
  9. It's a battle bus if I've ever seen one, that's for sure.
  10. So straight from the Kawachi to the Ise then? It also seems that the Baltimore is getting locked into being an event-only vessel. Because that also makes sense.
  11. From Eielson AFB readiness exercise
  12. Readiness exercise featuring F-35s, F-16s, and KC-135s at Eielson AFB in Alaska
  13. I wondered if it was a matter of manufacturing something domestically, either of foreign license or native design, but I believe all the other AA systems used at the time were purchased directly from Russia. Worth noting that these (Strela, Osa, and Kub for example) are all missile systems though.
  14. Czech design of T-34 SPAAG armed with a 57mm cannon
  15. The USS Shaw, a Mahan-class destroyer, was the victim of a catastrophic magazine explosion that was famously captured in a photo during the Pearl Harbor attack. While her bow and bridge superstructure were lost as a result of the blast, her presence in drydock meant she was still able to be salvaged and refloated in due time. Shaw was later rebuilt and went on to actively serve in the Pacific throughout the remainder of the war.
  16. Was a quip at the general appearance of both vehicles being very similar.
