Re: Games I am officially EXCITED about.

.... As a player of KSP I find that space video offensive and I keep expecting them to fall downwards as they don't seem to have any horizontal velocity. And no, it still does not make me want to play COD again. Here's a KSP challenge, make an orbital fighter... Something to vertically boost to orb...

Re: Games I am officially EXCITED about.

I am intrigued by the Call of Duty campaign, if it does follow the overall structure given in early previews, a Top Gun fantasy. In a great show of irony, this is a publisher making Star Citizen, probably just as Star Citizen finally fails. Also, did anyone see the switchblade fighter in the trailer...

Re: Cold War-3

No, the rest of the presentation. Haven't seen where that presentation is. Also, I'm very intrigued about the choice of CEP. I found their general presentation on the -12, that slide's in it. https://fas.org/issue-brief/b61-life-extension-program-increasing-nato-nuclear-capability-precision-low-yie...

Re: Cold War-3

Where did that come from? The FAS, and I think the bunkers are secret, not the bomb. I remember all the talk 10-15 years ago of super-hardened mini-nukes to crack bunkers. I guess they just decided to harden a big one instead. No, the rest of the presentation. Haven't seen where that presentation i...

Say hello to the B61-12, the secret underground bunker remover. I wonder where those would be deployed first, my bet is ROK and Turkey.

Re: Cold War-3

Is Zircon a rocket or scramjet powered missile? I have seen any solid open sources, but the mainstream view is that it uses a solid fuel rocket booster for the first stage and then scramjet for the sustainer. The allegedly related tests in 2011-2012 conducted from a Backfire test bed were using boo...

Re: Cold War-3

http://ria.ru/defense_safety/20160317/1391446801.html Tests of new hypersonic AShM - Zircon began. Zircon is stated for use on the Kirov class (all 3 ships, after the refits) and now for the new SSN class, currently in development. Most likely it would be availiable to all platforms with UKSK VLS, ...

Re: Cold War-3

Rumors are running that North Korea is planning a possible nuclear test or missile test. A major step forward would be the KN-08 missile, which is possibly road mobile. Even if it isn't an intercontinental missile, a road mobile missile would give North Korea a survivable strike deterrent against So...
