Nonsense.
A google search will provide geographic coords as well as a street view.






Yeah what phage said!!!

Yeah, but if I wanted to put that much effort into something, I wouldn't be a truck driver.

WHOAAAAA !!!! You fly C5A Galaxy's ???????

Now THAT is a truck !!!!!

The exact opposite. When the mission is given it's largely ignored because it's not sexy enough.


===

Pardon my Ignorance but would that "Mission" be almost exclusively
a high flying C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers,
Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) platform basically acting
as an airborne version of this:

constanttech.com...

and can I make a position that such a high flyer MIGHT BE the
super-secret version of and/or the replacement for this aircraft:

That's actually a reAlly interesting idea.. A stealthy, strategic command and control craft. That pretty much mitigates the need for an escort. But who will refuel the stealth craft? Hmmm..

Well last time i made a stink they were able to figure out where i was within 24 hours and arrange something awesome to fly down the center of my street lengthwise. Im pretty sure they already got my info. Just tell em i need 2 gigs per second download speed on my internet stat. Xhamsters been running really slow lately.

Come on....hook a bro up.


Sounds like we're hot on the lead of the biggest, darkest SAP in our inventory... the Red Lady!

A BIG Global Hawk-like drone with an underhanging fuel tank of 10,000 litres
or about 10 cubic meters (355 Cubic feet) of JP-xx should do the trick !!!!
Add more powerful engines and use up to FIVE of them and cycle them
in sequence to refuel a C4ISR craft that is likely smaller than the B2
but can take probably around 50,000 litres of JP-xx fuel.

The current 14,600 KG gross payload weight of teh Global Hawk can probably
be expanded to over 20,000 KG "simply" by puttting in more modern engines
(I would look at the newest Bombardier Global Express Jet engines for fuel
efficiency, range and power) and a larger wing! That should make it FINE to
carry the 8000+ KG of tank-based fuel and it's on-board autonomous
re-fueling system and electronics.

See Simple Render of Global Hawk UAV Tanker:
files.abovetopsecret.com...

You can make the tanks droppable or permanently hard-pointed
to the under-carriage and taking off from CVN aircraft carriers....!!!

That's what I would do!

Ok - dispose tank/release for landing, but how is takeoff accomplished for the rendering? Vertically like a rocket???

Hey Phanta!

My sources say they launch the KC Global Mobil
Via two methods:

1. A giant rubber slingshot and a team of a dozen horse drawn carriages.

2. The tank is a deflatable fuel bladder. It takes off with it flapping flacidly in the wind like an octogenerian without his viagra in a room with a supermodel. Then the Global Mobil has to seek out a KC 135 and tank up its self. Due to the crazy drag coefficient the Global Mobil must stay with in proximity of larger tankers so it its self doesnt fall out of the sky like a north korean rocket.


Also: your in box has a message... Not from me but from zaphod. It reads "Do not engage bassplyr...hes an asshole."

Ok lets break it down even further.

If this platform can perform multiple missions it almost certainly is not a refuel bird. Tankers wouldn't have an electronic suite built into it, at least I would highly doubt it.

That eliminates tankers.

Its posible its a dual Spy Bird and ECM bird, able to perform those roles simultaneously.

The other dual combo possibility would be Cargo/Troop transport for Spec Ops. BUT would we really need a fast mover to deliver SEALS at Mach 6 or droop cargo on a moments notice? Not sure if I buy that.

THUS, I'm going with dual mission SPY/ECM platform, which explains the fast speed and altitude for maximum coverage. Makes the most sense anyways.

I thought it was "Tend" not "Team".

I could be wrong though.

Bassplyr I think you got some of the details wrong...

According to my calculations with FIVE nano-engineered carbon NANOTUBE
rubber bands you could
slingshot the Global Hawk into Low Earth Orbit... Maybe
construct a whole "stealth" space station out of
metamaterial QUASICRYSTALS in a lattice matrix
to refuel up to 17,500 gallons of LOX in a hydrocarbon-
fuel rig system with boom operator and "simply" top
off before atmospheric re-entry!

I would put droppoable wheels under the tank similar to a
Hollywood-style "Grip Dolly" which has tracks and wheels
but the weheels can be dropped off once airborne:

Grip Dolly Link putting wheels underneath a large tank:

Possible track configuration for a large Global Hawk with tank for fast launch:
www.grip-film.hr...

You might even be able to put a tow-hook configuration
on the tank under-carriage for aircraft carrier launch systems.

IT MIGHT WORK! --- Someone should take a look as a Global Hawk
tanker drone with a 10,000 litre under-body tank just might be
a good refueling system for OTHER drones and larger craft!

Just increase wing-span and wing-area AND use the
same engine as on the Bombardier Global Express
executive jet for power and fuel efficiency!
