I do not work on military vehicles however I have used them.

Tank commanders, for example, are required to know how to fix them just in case any component happens to break down in actual combat.

Or did they not teach you that in Conspiracy school?

I mean in all sincerity one gets into a military vehicle to use in combat without the background, necessary to repair it?

What in general what one has is a person who is basically an idiot.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk is an American single-engined, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft that first flew in 1938. The P-40 design was a modification of the previous Curtiss P-36 Hawk which reduced development time and enabled a rapid entry into production and operational service. The Warhawk was used by most Allied powers during World War II and remained in frontline service until the end of the war. It was the third most-produced American fighter, after the P-51 and P-47; by November 1944, when production of the P-40 ceased, 13,738 had been built,[4] all at Curtiss-Wright Corporation's main production facilities at Buffalo, New York.




The P-40's lack of a two-speed supercharger made it inferior to Luftwaffe fighters such as the Messerschmitt Bf 109 or the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in high-altitude combat and it was rarely used in operations in Northwest Europe. However, between 1941 and 1944, the P-40 played a critical role with Allied air forces in three major theaters: North Africa, the Southwest Pacific, and China. It also had a significant role in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Alaska, and Italy. The P-40's performance at high altitudes was not as important in those theaters, where it served as an air superiority fighter, bomber escort, and fighter-bomber. Although it gained a postwar reputation as a mediocre design, suitable only for close air support, recent research including scrutiny of the records of individual Allied squadrons indicates that this was not the case: the P-40 performed surprisingly well as an air superiority fighter, at times suffering severe losses but also taking a very heavy toll on enemy aircraft.[10] The P-40 offered the additional advantage of low cost, which kept it in production as a ground-attack aircraft long after it was obsolete as a fighter.

Ok with all due respect that could actually mean there never was captured in combat a P-40 that actually did, in fact, have a two-speed supercharger.

Not because there were not any but because of none harboring that technology were ever caught.

Seriously if I could afford a vintage P-40 I would insist upon a variant that contained a two-speed supercharger.

Otherwise no deal.



the plane was assigned to the 393d Bomb Squadron of the 509th Composite Group. It was one of fifteen Silverplate B-29s used by the 509th. Top Secret was built at the Glenn L. Martin Company aircraft plant at Omaha, Nebraska, as a Block 35 aircraft. It was one of 10 aircraft modified as a Silverplate and designated with Block number 36. The plane was delivered to the Army Air Forces on 2 April 1945. The 509th assigned it to crew B-8 (1st Lt. Charles F. McKnight, aircraft commander) and it was flown to Wendover Army Air Field, Utah. It left Wendover on 5 June 1945, for North Field, Tinian and arrived 11 June.

It was originally assigned the "victor (unit-assigned identification) number" 2 but on 1 August was given the large 'Square A' tail markings of the 497th Bombardment Group as a security measure and had its "victor number" changed to 72 to avoid misidentification with actual 497th aircraft. It was named Top Secret and its nose art was applied after the atomic bomb missions.

Actually, your sadistic tendencies are apparent as a descendant of the European invasion. I bet you think people give a damn about you, when in reality.....your parentage is more about genocide and the effort to establish authority with an emphasis upon superiority based upon superfluous appearances. Of the 4000 children who die of starvation every hour how many per capita do so in a location, you can drive to ???


If only you could comprehend the genocide your kind has committed but that would actually make you rational which likely impossible.

Best case scenario the United States should be armed to the teeth.

WTF makes you think that that is what he worked on? are you psychic?

And again there was my father.

Perhaps you should do actual research on the topic than stroke your proverbial ego with respect to your pet theories, that do not take into consideration. that in reality, you have provided no evidence that what you are claiming actually
is real.



your father lied to you then.

You behaving like a child which is understandable.




MIT's AeroAstro labs are working to develop a drone that can fly at speeds up to Mach 0.8, or roughly 614 mph. Dubbed the Firefly, the drone is essentially a mini-rocket and has a similar shape to a zeppelin. It is designed to launch from a fighter jet and collect data or distract enemy weapons systems.

Actually, I started this thread and in so far as Zaphod as well as and so on, I seriously couldn't give the hind end of end overweight ratus what he thinks he knows.

The thread makes nothing. nothing he or she said made any sense whatsoever.

Fyi 5 kilotons is 5000 tons of TNT equivalent not 500,000.

Beyond that ADAPTIV is not American.

F15's don't fire SAM's

... Yeah... Do you want me to keep going?

Traditionally one gains at least a minimal grounding in a subject before postulating on the potential implications of "new technology"...

(Which is actually so old hat you'd have to dig backwards several pages or more on even the ghost town that is the ATS weapons forums to find the actual discussions wrt ADAPTIV when it was actually new)
