Lasers are pretty well understood, and the biggest problem with weaponising them (power requirements, size, tricky engineering/maintenance) are pretty much a non issue on most major warships (that are big enough for a nuclear reactor) they're the most likely place to see RL laser weapons actually happening. No lasguns, but for warships (and maybe, possibly, eventually) larger aircraft it'll probably happen over the next few decades.

The Russians have claimed that they have new laser systems to 'jam tank command systems' but as the only source there is Russian politicians talking to Russian journalists I'd take that with a grain of salt. It's also a lot more of a long range electronic warfare system than a weapon.

Sounds like you'd know more about it than I do then. From what I can read online it would seem that the US were working on a AMS style laser in 2014 (vid in my previous post) but don't seem to have done much with the concept after that; and Russia has claimed an undisclosed number of (as yet unseen) EW style laser systems and that they are working on ground based anti-missile/drone lasers (and a rumoured anti-satellite laser fired from a high altitude aircraft). Even if everything claimed about them is true it's probably going to be at least a decade or so (best case scenario) before they move from interesting research projects/propaganda pieces and are properly deployed though.

Laser are extremely dubious as weapons, doubly so on ships.

The main problem is the humidity rate in the air, the tiny particles of water diffract light which leads to a terrible energy efficiency.

So while you can justify lasers for guidance or to blind sensors (lots of soviet/russian tech, DIRCM, etc…) because you don't need much to saturate extremely sensitive CCDs making it fairly certain it will works in all weather, the idea to use them as direct energy weapons is quite questionable.

b467a4  No.643651


>he Russians have claimed that they have new laser systems to 'jam tank command systems'

It's not new it's one from the same program as >>643603

It's something that scan the terrain for optical glass and applies a pulse to everything it finds, it's an infantry system and it should work on everything, from ATGM launching units to tanks, possibly individual optics.

I've seen it demonstrated and it was offered to export in the late 90's early 2000's but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called.

No clue how prevalent it is or if they had even ordered some prior to recently, but it's not bullshit AFAIK (at least not completely).

Frankly tech-wise it's nothing more complicated than a IR scanner and a handful of high power laser pointers on a rotary mount plugged into a computer, but things don't have to be complicated to work.

Also the Missile Troops are getting the "Persevet" thing which no one really knows what it does (probably blinds KH satellites).

>It's something that scan the terrain for optical glass and applies a pulse to everything it finds

Could you put some glass on the nose of a missile with some kind of a tracker behind it, so that it follows back that laser? Or program the turret of a vehicle to face directly the origin of that laser, so that it will target the source?

Damn, so classified that the only search results I got for the thing were about a Russian naval steam barge from the mid 1800's. Are you sure that's the right name?


Give enough engineers enough time and money (and good enough management to make sure it doesn't all go on something crazy/fun) and pretty much anything is possible. I can't see anyone putting much thought into that though - at the moment and probably for the foreseeable future all the contracts are going to projects for policing the hadjis.

It's named after Alexander Peresvet a man from a more civilized era.

An Orthodox monk, he was a pious scholar of the Borisoglebsky Monastery latter a follower of St. Sergius of Radonezh (Patron Saint of All-Russia)…

Who fought in single combat for the Russian principalities as their champion against the Tatar champion, Temir-murza for the Golden Horde, at the opening of the Battle of Kulikovo (8 September 1380).

The duel ended in a draw with both dead, which lead to a battle, which the Russians won, securing independence from the Mongol Empire.

Lasers and radiowaves in general have this amazing quantum property of ALWAYS being defocused, they diverge by very significant amount even in vacuum of space without any of the atmospheric scattering. You gonna need an absolute shitload of power to do any damage at ranges exceeding 5 km, so consider laser based weapons to be a meme waste of money for all eternity. You can however destroy sensitive equipment with modest amounts of power.


It appears to be a commonly used technology. Radio jammer stations getting BTFO by homing missiles is a common problem. This is why typical mode of operation of such station involves scrambling and leaving the area in less than 10 seconds. Most vehicle-based systems can take off with their 20 meter tower still fully extended, and pack it up on the go. Those that don't have this capability are situated deep within friendly territory.

10b1ea  No.643770


>You gonna need an absolute shitload of power to do any damage at ranges exceeding 5 km

So they have at least some potential for shipboard anti-missile use (no need to snipe some tank 100km away there). A point defence system that doesn't need to adjust its aim to lead the target would be an advantage, it would also be at the upper end of effective range compared to modern gun based CIWS systems, probably a lot cheaper than using anti-missile-missiles (on a '£s per kill' basis) over the life of the system as well.

>cheaper over life of the system

I wouldn't count on that. Just like conventional guns, lasers require repairs. They can degrade and fail and then you need to basically replace the entire thing, sans the housing.

Also, leading the target is completely trivial and is a non-issue whatsoever. I'm pretty sure it is also much cheaper and more reliable to use a minigun as anti-missile weapon than a laser.

Also lasers have this entire problem of "coat it with chrome to get 99.5% resistance" which you cannot do anything about.

Don't forget that the best modern laser weapons are around 15% efficient.

That means for every 1000J poured in, 150J is turned to destructive laser energy, and 850J is turned into waste heat. In space this basically means you cook yourself before the enemy even feels it.

It only sort of works when you have infinity coolant (ocean) nearby, or you're a BIG vehicle shooting a relatively TINY vehicle.

Anti-laser armor has been widespread since the 1950s, and was used on both sides. It's called anti-flash white. The exact same reason it protects against a nuclear flash will also make it effective against lasers.

Of course, these days we paint aircraft to absorb as much as possible, because of the stealth meme.

Somewhere, in a better timeline, Space Shuttle Door Gunners are a real and respected MOS.


Not particularly, at least in RL. As there's no such thing as a perfect reflector any surface will take some damage from the laser hit, and that damage makes the surface less reflective, which means the same energy will damage the surface more, which …..

At reflective, ablative, layer of armour could be useful to give you a little bit longer before you start taking damage to bits you care about. That's probably more useful for missiles than vehicles though. Smoke that's opaque at the lasers wavelength would do a much better job, if it became relevant.

That's really questionable.

One of Russia big advance in missile tech is the polymer fiber printing (weaving more like) the body for pantsir, kornet, etc…

I'm sure it was a pain to develop, but the result is they're very light (so very fast) and stupidly inexpensive to make since pyrotechnics aren't pricey to begin with.

And it works in the rain without having to hook it up to a nuclear reactor…

Don't be stupid, Greekanon. The Bundeswehr inherited a lot of war material from the NVA in 1990.

Among tanks, APCs, IFVs, UAZs, AKs SPAAGs, SPAGs and an entire airforce.

We had so much stuff that we didn't know what to do with it, so at first we tried to find ways to use it. But you could only blow up so many tanks for training purposes.

Then we began selling them. But how should you sell and entire navy? Who could afford a navy all at once?

So then we just gave shit away for free. Most of the US test stock of MiGs, Hinds and so on came from the DDR's collapse.

And we still have stuff leftover. Truckloads of AKs and SKS' in storage. I got to look at entire rooms of old AKs, entombed in cosmoline for all eternity. Feels good to know that we could arm our army about three times over with old ammo to spare if shit ever really hits the fan hard.

And that's not even all of it. After 1990 we never properly took stock of anything.

The only thing that happened was that each type of object was classified into three categories:

I: we can use it and we will keep it

II: we can use it for some time, but eventually it will be III

III: we can not use it. Sell it or throw it away.

Everything was so rushed that we just rolled over to their garrisons, talked to the commanders for a while, and then told them to leave the keys on the desk. We took down their flags with some music, and that was about it.

I know it's fucked that I say "we" and "they", but it honestly feels like it.

We also accepted about 5 percent of the competent soldiers, the rest was laid off and received a very small pension. Those who got accepted were mostly maintenance crews.

Anything that was not nailed down was stolen. All the east German shit you have on the US market, all the SKS', pouches and helmets? Stolen or sold from storage. Remember that these guys had months to plan, hide and move equipment they wanted to keep for themselves.

The NVA had six active divisions and 7 reserve divisions with equipment 100% in storage, the modern Bundeswehr has trouble maintaining two regular divisions.

The NVA had two entire regiments dedicated to maintaining and constructing roads, and one regiment to maintaining and constructing bridges, plus their normal pioneering battalions. All with full equipment and fuel.

The NVA had 131 warships and >40 support vessels, and more than 100.000 wheeled vehicles plus 300.000 tonns of ammunition.

And that doesn't even mention the heavily militarized police force too, or their boarder guards. The entire affair was a mess. We threw around equipment left right and center, and we still have shit left over.

A single MiG is nothing to us. We sold 22 to Poland for next to nothing because they were rusting away.

It's a testbed NASA built to figure out what kind of advantages and challenges planes with oblique wings would face.

Basically some guy said:"if planes could fold in their wings they would take up less space on the taxi-way and they could make final approach with harsher crosswinds, How hard could it be to build and fly one?"

And NASA, because it consists of a bunch of autists, took that rhetoric question literally and decided to build a test aircraft to test those wing configurations.

Turns out that NASA has a bunch of very competent engineers, and everything turned out better than expected.

However the mechanism to turn the wings reliably and ensure that nothing moves when it is not meant to do weighs a whole lot and it would be a massive waste to put it on an aircraft that doesn't really need it that badly.

The entire foldable wing mechanism of the is based on this plane.

When it comes to Mercedes-Benz, I prefer the classics. Light wipers are cute. CUTE

Also: my Carfu. VW Polo IV gen. 2; 5 door version.

Take off the roof and remove the backseats an you got a good lil' pickup for TOYOTAing innacity.

Leave the roof and backseats in and you got a small, fuel efficient, and sporty little car that can accelerate like a a fa/tg/uy running for the toilet after painting IG for ten hours straight.

Ignore anything after gen. 4. The car itself is still good, but the internals aren't nearly as comfy anymore.

Another top quality car: Mercedes Benz G-class.

Civillian version use filters, but you can take those off easily :3

Newer versions look more sturdy, but are essentially the same car with more plastic bits tacked on.

If you happen to have radar dominance you could probably stick some modern missiles on there and deal with any modern aircraft just fine. As with most early jet fighters they were overcomplicated where they should have been simple and were hence quite pricey to maintain and probably not too cheap to fly. Which is to say, you might as well be using something modern.

They are decently fast with a top speed of around Mach 1.8 which isn't a bad result even today faster than F-35 still kek and would probably be entirely sufficient for defence roles.

>modern avionics

I hate to break it to you, strelok, but there isn't really anything modern about modern avionics.

Flight control computers have existed since the '90s and have been slowly implemented in almost every older plane that lacked them during major upgrades.

They are insanely useful for preventing pilots from doing retarded shit and getting a plane crashed because of hypoxia effects include lack of judgement and euphoria, but unless your plane is designed to be aerodynamically unstable (and thus requires them to fly and employ controlled stalling for manouvering) like the Eurofighter or Rafale, they won't add anything to the performance.

A couple new ideas (like simulating special manouvers that are very risky and allowing the FCC to perform them under certain circumstances, or allowing the aircraft to go to it's absolute safe limits depending on fuel/weapons load, air moisture, pressure and airspeed) are slowly being implemented on some aircraft, but it costs a lot to run the necessary simulations at the necessary level of accuracy to fully implement them for every old plane from every third world nation.

God I hate this meme.

There is no "modern metallurgy". We have used Al2014 and Al2024 since WWII. INCONEL was developed in the 1940s and guess what? Compound fibers are

a) not metals, thus not metallurgy

b) one of the oldest construction materials known to man

See prehistoric spears, axes and arrows: Sinew+resin+stick+rock.

Even if you, in your severe retardation, used "modern metallurgy" to mean "compound fibers", you would still be a massive fucking faggot.

1) Compound fibers are extremely bad at taking stress from any direction other than the fiber direction (-90% at 6°for carbon fibers).

2) Fibers can't be connected easily using screws, bolts and rivets.

3) Fibers can't be machined into shape.

4) Fibers require completely different maintenance (extremely high cost inspection using interferometry).

This means that you have to design a fiber-replacement part with

1) a different shape to take stress along fiber direction only

2) different connection methods, mostly gluing or tufting

3) different production methods in mind (this is both an advantage and disadvantage)

4) a different maintenance plan

This means that a plane built with "modern" materials would look differently, have a different internal structure, have a different weight distribution, and completely different characteristics. It would be a different plane. And that's good, because if you were to replace aluminium parts with fiber parts without considering the above your design would either fail before construction is finished, or immediately upon rollout. It would also cost a lot more and be completely useless.

If you want to use fiber materials you have to completely redo the structure, which means redoing the entire plane. Sure, you could build an airplane that looks at least similarly to a Draken on the outside, but which uses compound fibers on the inside, but what would be the point? Spending millions on redesigning an aircraft, and then spending many more millions on producing it while not fully using the potential of fiber compounds is, without any hyperbole, stupid. It would be a waste of money. You can still build those planes.

You can change out older parts for more expensive ones to improve performance, but unless you are using a 40+ year old turbine there is no reason to change most of the parts. And the only reason why we can still upgrade engines is because designing a turbine engine is a work of art and wizardry. And making a single prototype can cost billions, slowing down development a lot.

They can build them they can't mass produce them.

Quality control and repeat-ability on mass scale is the biggest hurdle, because you need a bunch load of people doing their job perfectly.

There is a dozen places on the planet that make turbofans, less than that for fighters (afterburners) engines.

China has 3 (3 fighters), the US have 2 (2 fighters), Russia has 3 (2 fighters), France has 1 (1 fighters), UK has 1 (1 fighters), Germany has 1 (0 fighters), Japan has 1 (0 fighters) and India has been struggling to get 1 for 30 years (despite foreign assistance of everyone) and still doesn't have any.

The fact that China does have working 3 homemade turbofans made in by 3 different companies, even if less performative, after only a TEN YEARS program (before 2000 all they did was buy Russian ones, they started the R&D in 2000 and had prototypes around 2005-2006 reached mass prod by 2010) is nothing to scoff at.

>That's retarded. Aerodynamics have nothing to do with internal structure, and planforms can be scaled up and down with minimal change. That's how wind tunnel modeling works.

Aerodynamics dictate the internal structure. The aerodynamic forces applied on the aircraft hull must be transferred to the fuselage, where it must be spread out so the aircraft won't break apart.

Reshaping the wing for example may increase lift, which means that you have to reinforce the wing-attachment point so it won't shear off in flight, as well as the internal structure of the wing, which now has to support a greater load. Because the wing is now stronger and thus heavier, it will pull down more on the attachment point when the aircraft is landed and thus the attachment point needs even more reinforcement.

The internals of a plane also dictate it's externals. Add a larger fuel tank and you will require greater lift, which requires differently shaped wings, which require different wing internals and so on and so forth. Design is an iterative process. One thing influences the other, which influences the first and the fifth thing. It all comes biting itself in the ass at some point.

>Using a tried and tested planform means you already know were the stresses are coming from. Duh.

I refuse to believe this isn't bait.

The Engines are still in the same place, wings are still the same length, hydraulics still use the same systems, maybe they got an electrics upgrade, but even then they most likely ripped out old parts and put in newer ones.

The reason why the 737 remained in production is because it fucking works. They didn't change the hull from Al2024 to carboon fiber. They didn't use any new materials, they simply replaced older parts with more efficient ones that have become cheaper.

The best example are the engines. They didn't suddenly use engines that had new materials in them. The same materials were used in the same ways, but with more careful calculations, better simulations and new design philosophies in mind to create engines that work better using the same materials.

They also didn't suddenly stop using rivets to hold the aluminium together. They didn't switch to glue or welding large portions of the hull. They still sue rivets, because those simply work and don't need much calculation. Those rivets are still placed using the same technologies. Riveting robots have existed since the early '90s.

It's not materials that make aircraft perform better or cheaper. It's 40% new regulation technologies, 40% new designs, and 20% new calculations.

Aerospace engineers have used the same materials since the '40s. The real thing that improved airplane performance were new design ideas and calculation methods.

For example the first few jet powered airplanes all used single stage turbines. The turbine in the rear was connected to the compressor in the front with one spinning axis.

This meant that the compressor was rotating at the same speed as the turbine, which is OK for a single disk compressor, but generates continously worse performance the more disks you add to the compressor, because the first few disks are spinning too fast to do any actual work, and the last few are spinning too slow to be of much use.

A long time this caused problems for engineers and was limiting jet engine performance. Then came hollow axis, which revolutionized jet engines.

Now the turbine in the rear and the compressor in the front were separated into two parts. A high pressure and a low pressure section.

The high pressure section of the turbine (immediately rear of the combustion chamber) was connected to the high pressure section of the compressor (immediately forwards of the combustion chamber) using a hollow axis.

The low pressure section of the turbine was connected to the low pressure section of the compressor using a normal axis that went through the high pressure axis. Imagine one axis spinning inside a spinning tube.

This allowed engineers to finally solve the issue with rotation speed of compressor disks and drastically improve jet engine performance.

Note how no new materials were used? No new manufacturing methods were used either. All they did is come up with a new idea to solve a problem.

The same goes for calculation methods. They simply came up with new methods to predict the maximum loads that are still safe for a given material to take under certain circumstances. This is not so much engineering as it is a mix of materials science and engineering, but those new formulas are almost exclusively used in aerospace engineering anyways, simply because it is one of the few areas where a couple kilos are well worth more than 500 extra hours of calculations.

Internals do not dictate shit, they exist to support prioritized design elements, like the airframe that was the entire point above.

I hate to agree with a nofun hater but the sperg has a point, in his stupid way. The design is fifties engineering. It's like making a Trabant out of cutting-edge modern materials: you can do it, but it won't work better, in fact it might even be worse.

If you mean taking the Draken's overall shape and design a modern airplane into it, like with the Super Hornet, that is doable.

An F-5 is infinitely more efficient than an F-15, F-16, or F-18.

The single engine version called F-20 is even more so, with a modern engine from the F-18 and carbon composites reducing its weight by 30% it basically becomes capable of supercruising at mach 2.

It's unironically a gud plane.

Relatively cheap, reliable, good all-round multipurpose single engine single seat aircraft with a good service history and a lot of old planes spare parts lying around.

Same reason the German post-war stealth missile interceptor program got cancelled.

The US didn't want any non-american competition on the aerospace market. This pressure lead to European aircraft manufacturers slowly dying off because they couldn't sell their aircraft anylonger and were stuck with development costs. Eventually this forced them to join Airbus.

Keep blaming the US for everything krautist.

The reason why nobody wanted them is that NO ONE wanted to buy German after that little incident called WWII…

Not even the German government.

That plane like everything of that era is about as German as fish and chips, it's British engines designed by a french, using the french concept of VTOL (which was abandoned after the first prototypes in the early 60's when they realized either it would be nightmare cost/maintenance or they would have to seriously impair flying performance, the british continued to refine the same concepts and components into the Harrier, while the french cut their losses ahead and went for full fledged CATOBAR carriers instead).

And, like the first french prototypes, while it was working the bloody thing had 8 (8!) lift engines in addition to it's main engine for flying.

No-one sane would have bought them had they been US.

>not even the German government

Which is a lie. They tried to adopt Dornie and Fokker aircraft, but couldn't because if they were the only buyer those planes would have been far too expensive.

>NO ONE wanted to buy German after that little incident called WWII

That is debatable. I would have agreed if you had said that it was because Germany would be the first one to fall under a soviet attack, and thus any further plane deliveries would have fallen through. A problem which could have been solved with license production.

>british engines

Because Rolls Royce already produced tilting thrust turbine engines. Why come up with something new and experimental when you can use components that already work to make it cheaper?

>using the french concept of VTOL

VTOL is not a national concept mate. That would be like saying that the steam engine is a british concept, or assembly lines an american concept. It doesn't matter. We used it. It works. And French aerospace companies didn't achieve the same things with the concept as German ones. Your entire argument is irrelevant.

>No-one sane would have bought them had they been US.

That so far has been the only argument that makes sense. But: all European nations were looking at ways to avoid large concrete targets runways for aircraft at the time. That's why RATOL and VTOL became popular in the first place. At the time the Do31 was, and to this day still is, a revolutionary concept that could have become a staple of most militaries. Faster, longer range and with more capacity than most helicopters of that age, it could seriously have advanced the airborne infantry concept.

ffea1b  No.647764


Same design philosophy as an F-15. Intakes are part-ramjet at high altitudes, there's just not enough air for them not to be partially used to collect and compress the airflow.

b4aa35  No.647855


> but it's not like the design philosophy is that much different

Both are a direct developments of the Ye-155P protoype, the main difference was that the -31 spared some more shekels in its development and maintenance-budget in order to make it useful in actual air-combat whereas the -25 was obsolete the moment the West developed the first countermeasure (namely the very first 4th gen fighters) and was left with its only use being dickwaving competitions between sandniggers (and curryniggers).

Stop making up bullshit.

Variable geometry intakes are for Mach 2+ flight, not ramjets or altitude. Beyond that, the plane has nothing in common with the F-15.



The plane was made to intercept bombers and reconnaissance, not dogfighting shit.

>An intake ramp is a rectangular, plate-like device within the air intake of a jet engine, designed to generate a number of shock waves to aid the inlet compression process at supersonic speeds.

>inlet compression

>inlet compression

>inlet compression

It's a pseudo ramjet idea, the philosophy of this type of design is clear, air needs to be pre compressed at high altitude because the air pressure there is lower. Take 10 seconds to google a post before making such a revolting reply clearly with intent to start an internet argument.


You need to have more speed than a bomber to effectively intercept it, although "intercept" is a misnomer since WWII. A bomber approaching at mach 2.2+ will deliver the payload before you can intercept it, the point of modern interceptors is to catch up with the bomber in a stern chase before it can overfly your country and disappear under friendly air force umbrella. The point is to shoot it down so the enemy can't use it again.

39eaa2  No.647951


Not true at all, back in the 80s we routinely did head-on interceptions of SR-71s and MiG-25s. It's mostly just a matter of keeping a few interceptors ready to launch at all times, which we stopped doing in the 90s because it's expensive and we need that money to buy more F-35s.

Therefore it was completely useless the moment XB-71 and B-1A were cancelled.

That's where the dickwaving competitions between sandniggers comes into play. No NATO or first world air-defenses, not even us or durkroaches would have real trouble shooting down an overflying Foxbat with the average Sparrow.

Retard. The shock waves are for protecting the compressor from supersonic airflow, not to make a ramjet like on the SR-71. Take 10 seconds to google a post before making such a revolting reply clearly with intent to start an internet argument.
