I was wondering your opinions on the topic.
The ancient inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent have two incredibly old and epic poems, of which the names have left me, but in which a grand war
is described, complete with aerial vehicles called "Vimana", described as large aerial platforms with many, many capabilities and weapons. But these
capabilities vary from Vimana to Vimana, some do this, some do that, etc.
They are famed to be able to cloak invisible, but not cloak their sound, as in the poems one Vimana destroys another after it becomes invisible with a
sound-seeking weapon. There is rumor that alien discs have force-fields and the like.. but could an electro-magnetic field really protect from a
nuclear explosion at point blank, or in other words '100% accurate strike'? They too are said to have weapons that sound strikingly similar to
nuclear weaponry in those poems, im sure another member can post the name of the poem(s) im speaking of. One is called something like the Mahabarata,
or some such.
My question to you all is; Do you think current state of the art technology in jet fighter aircraft, such as the F-22 raptor & the F-117 Stealth
fighter, complete with their state of the art missle guidance systems and tracking systems, could hit a "Vimana" with an air-to-air tactical(small
yield) nuclear missle? And if so, do you suspect the alien technology would be superior enough to repel a nuclear blast? I have to think if they could
be hit by one, it would hurt them, at the very least if they could deflect the insurmountable blast, they'd fall prey to the radiation.
I also wonder if they could make the nuclear missle, travelling at mach-whatever-faster-than-sound, stop dead in its tracks and 'go dead'
electronicly, cutting its propelling-technology off and causing it to drift out of the sky and crash into the ground or sea.
And the very weapon I speak of, an air-to-air tactical nuke, these kinds of weapons are being developed and tested as we speak by the United States
Air Force. In fact, we may already have some prototype weaponry that could be hastily used.
I know one thing, I'd bet conventional munitions would be as good as useless, to craft anyways, because they'd be so slow/weak. We need some serious
# for protection here guys.. anyone else thinking that an alien 'appearance in numbers' would immediately turn into us attempting to attack & kill
them? We'd provoke hellfire, thats for sure, I just hope we develop some better weapons that might have a chance.
How do you assess the state of the art tech we have right now, should it be used in full force to defend the planet and the Human race from aliens?
I call into discussion the infamous 'Custard's Last Stand', where 100-odd U.S. cavalry in the 1800's, complete with muskets and rifles, were
surrounded, overwhelmed, and slaughtered to the last man by a few thousand naked indians with hand carved bows and slow, stone-head arrows. Surely we
could overwhelm a small force..
