A hypersonic vehicle could have a workable turn radius, but the shape required for this is questionably drone-like.

Hypersonic realm is mach 5+, supersonic is mach 1-4.9, and I had to base it's speed off the SLAM which on paper should be hitting around mach 4.3 at altitude and mach 3-3.5 on the deck. So I went with the middle ground.

u right
BUT, the tests were for actual hypersonics (maintained approx mach 5.5)
So yeah, I think I'm ready to join the arms race... hehehe

I mean I've already got hypersonics. Hypersonic glide vehicle, check. Hypersonic air-launched missile, check. Hypersonic AShM... Anti-ballistic missile... I've already invested into the realm and found that it's both expensive but hilarious especially when certain players are deluded into calling something from the cold war "FT" and "not currently possible" given the realm of hypersonics.

FYI, the tank doesn't weigh 60 tons - it weighs 55 and a bit. And active hydropneumatic suspension has been used on the K-2 which is a similar mass. How by the way could I increase the target ID range of the thermals? Sorry to pester you again on this, but I want to get this thing to work properly. And I fully appreciate how frustrating responding to this must be. I didn't entirely copy and paste the JP-2 sensors - as you correctly guessed, most of this is from the K-2, a tank I barely thought of a week ago, but the one which has now guided the sensor and sight development.


Since South Korea is 70% mountains, the K2 was primarily designed to operate in those types. Thus the need for hydropneumatics. But yes, its your choice. Nothing much I could do about it. And yes, the cameras seems much more optimal and feasible than a LIDAR tbh. Easy to install, maintain, or operate. Not to mention low signature as well, as compared to LIDAR.

As for the sights or the sensors, you could probably increase the spectral band range beyond your current 8-12 nm. iirc, doing so would only expand the thermal radiation capture it could get, which ig would also translate to better clear sight visuals. Haven't checked the most powerful spectral band range yet for FLIR. (So decided to research while writing this)

So apparently, the strongest I found is from raytheon with 6-15 and 15-30nm. Which looking back, ig your 8-12nm isnt really that bad as compared to slightly higher standards. (Source (do note that the 30-100 and 100-1000nm is for far flir, meaning what it is capable of. But Im guessing it does not translate for effective sighting. Like reading a small sentence. Yes you could read it when you are close to it, but reading it from a far would be impossible, even though if you can see the "sentence" itself.) But I just set my Arbiter at around 12 - 17 nm which can go up to 50x zoom. But ig is all up to you on how you define your spectral range. You could probably even market your tank as having much better sights than the current EZV-3 sensors that we use for the Arbiter.

So in other words, the bands I'm using offer higher resolution but lower range (as angular resolution is inversely proportional to wavelength). Then in that case I'll go for the 6-15 and 15-30 you suggested for the far infrared bands. The thing you said about Korea's mountains also applies for Greater marine - though I don't have a geography factbook, I can state Greater Marine is highly mountainous. Anyway, I've also thought I could use spaced armour for much of the tank's protection (to save weight) and limit the composite armour to the tank's turret front, and the front of the hull, since statistically those get shot at the most.

I mean, the side skirts part could be spaced armor and the hull itself would be a strong homogenous material. Unless you aim to make it like the Type 10 which prioritizes speed overall than armor. Well it uses modular spaced armor and steel. Thats about it on the sides. In any case, the design philosophy of mine is to have it protected from any infantry attacks. But that depends on ya. You could check the AMAP variations and pick one of your choice.

As for the bands, 8-12nm is pretty good and much better than most standard sights. Modern average tank range doesnt even go as far as 6km for the most part, and 10km is just the extreme. Like, earth curvature would start being different at 4 kilometers at best. And something something mathematicians about horizon and drop stuff

By the way, what's the target ID range of the JP-2A (just for curiosity's sake)?

I'm just testing the feasibility of a hypersonic nuclear craft capable of fulfilling combat roles, requiring a relatively small turn radius. You probably are looking for a more strategic role, which is easier. We, however, want to stay ahead of you in the only field where doing so doesn't absolutely disgust us (*cough* bioweapons *cough*)

Then I'll go for the 6-30nm IR sensors you mentioned, with a possible IC explanation that Raytheon assisted in their development. Given my tank has fairly weak side armour, being able to see targets first is all.

Would kinda guess that 20 and above nms would be at 10kilometers at best in proper recognition. But then again, you have to balance your LRF range as well. ⌓‿⌓

Potentially it could make sense to use 2 sensors, then, which can be switched between, or just to install 2 sights.

I mean, originally I was planning three. But then I realized I didnt draw a back-up gunner sight to include it.

Two laser sights. One for gunner, one for tank commander. Well atleast for me. A gunner can find targs on gunner sight with LRF, so does the command on his sight with LRF. Both can direct the gun towards the targets if they find one. Well atleast for mine

Nah, I meant 2 sensors in the same sight, if its impossible to integrate both very long and medium wave IR in one sensor.

Ahh. Yea same goes. One for gunner, one for the commander. Unless you have more sensors.

Yeah, the idea is to combine several sensors in each sight via either seperate, clustered optics, a mirror system, or a beam splitter. It's just I want to combine high resolution short wavelength bands with the 15-30nm band for long range use.

That would require stronger energy requirements. Check the stats Ive made on EZV-3 lol. 30V requirement for two sensors alone.

Long live the Janpian Union of Revolutionary States!

Well, I'll agree the power requirements will be high. But it should be just about possible, especially with the hybrid powertrain.

Nearly forgot to mention by the way. The raytheon 30nm something is much larger than your average tank sights. Like its bigger than a MANPAD
