Apparently, in 1978 they tried to put APG-65 in F-16.

Hmmm. Looks like the best class of submarine to apply 'stealth' shaping to might be SSBN, then? They need to remain undetected above all else and do not necessarily need to go fast. SSKs would be dependent on whether they operate in deeper waters as Kyiv suggested. SSNs using double hull for a more ...

Due to seas getting louder and submarines getting quieter, the detection range of passive sonar has fallen, while active sonar has benefited from the development of multi-static sonar. Therefore, the relative usefulness of active sonar compared to passive sonar for anti-submarine warfare has signifi...

Naval mines are probably the remit of the navy and the air force which traditionally had the platforms used to deploy them (ships, bombers). IRL CAPTOR was only ever an anti-submarine weapon, I wonder why? Are surface vessel acoustic signatures too difficult to distinguish without a human operator? ...

How are landing craft usually defeated? By cumulative hits causing fire and flooding, hits to the propulsion and bridge that immobilise it, or a combination of both? By sinking their transports at sea. That makes sense, but I imagine the army would want to field weapons to get a slice of the coasta...

If all but a few ATGMs carried by Infantry are capable of knocking out a tank, are those Infantry better off doing something else like carrying more portable but less powerful ATGMs/RPGs (focus against enemy IFV/APC) or just do something else entirely like mortar crew? The infantry carrying ATGMs t...

Sloping became near irrelevant when the T-62 with APFSDS appeared. This isn't true, for example the original M1's Chobham armour consisted of heavily sloped plates beneath the not so sloped exterior . And the reason why the exterior of tanks like M1 is not very sloped is because their armour relies...

Quick thoughts: 1) You might want to reconsider the aggressive sloping of the turret front, there would be significantly less armour behind it nearer to the top. 2) Gun depression seems limited, even after considering that the suspension can tilt the tank forwards (I assume you are using a mixed sus...

I just did some quick measuring on the top view image from that video, the turret frontal armour seems to have a thickness of about 750mm (850mm LOS). Wouldn't that be sufficient for Chobham? Anyway, that is more than enough to accommodate the same LOS thickness of siliceous cored armour as on the o...

O: What is that chibi tank? I'm not sure a Western-style tank entering service in 1975 (so 1st generation of Chobham) could achieve comparable protection to T-72B, though. T-72B (without Kontakt-5) protection is comparable to Leopard 2 up to A4, which weighs 55 tons. It's literally the file name. I...

Would it be possible to create a western style tank with considerable (for 1975-1986) level of protection (similar to T-72b series) while maintaining level of weight around 50 tons ? I am just testing my options because infrastructure in Nifon doesn't like weighty tanks. I thought about Leo 2 style...

By western style, do you mean manually loaded gun and 3 man turret? If so, that is not possible. The best you could do would be a turret with composite armour (that compares to T-72B) on a lightly armoured hull, I think.

I guess the only tank engine today that use opposed piston is Ukrainian 6TD ? The thing seems to have alot of untapped potential... e.g smol and flat so one can perhaps make big 1500 HP heavy APC with more volume devoted to armor or men. But it also a question on why no more of that kind of engine ...

I think the difference is that in the 80s there were only 2 providers, the US LANDSAT and the French SPOT. The later stopped selling to Iraq after it invaded Kuwait depriving it of satellite imagery, but this is probably no longer possible today.

War in the age of commercial observation satellites? On the day of the ballistic missile attack, Iran purchased commercial images of Iraq's Ain al-Asad Air Base. Edit: Perhaps this was Iran's way of tipping off the US about the attack to ensure it would not cause serious casualties and provoke a st...

It probably can, the Type 91 AAMs it carries IRL weigh 66 kg for each launcher containing 2 missiles, and 8 ATGMs would weigh maybe 400 kg for a total of 532 kg or so, comfortably within the 600-700 kg payload it is estimated to have. Its just that I'd prefer to have a gun and achieve the range that...

Re: the cost discussion in general, I think its hard enough as it is to compare prices from different years, because there isn't a measure of military equipment inflation and using consumer inflation would not be accurate. BTW for OH-1 it didn't get a data link until after 2005, not sure if the cost...

Ooh looks like I underestimated how sophisticated Tiger is, didn't realise it had quite a lot of signature reduction too.

O: I forgot to specify a timeframe - Hinachi isn't as advanced as the US, so the Cobra alike was probably introduced in the early 70s, the Tiger alike in the late 80s, and the Comanche in...the early 10s? IDK when the Comanche could have entered service IRL even. That gives a gap of 40 years or so b...

Cobra is a single engine design because it was built to strafe machine guns with its rocket pods (and also because it was built from a single engine drivetrain to begin with). Apache is a twin engine design because it needed a lot of hover performance to fly from hide to hide and pop up to attack t...
