Armoured Vehicles and Tanks Modular Ceramic-Metal Armour [Ahlgren Eisen und Stahl & Co. OHG]

[Price: click here for information][Design updated in: 2018][Technology: Real Life Modern Technology]

Armoured vehicles and main battle tanks (e.g. Yvernyr, San-Silvacian) have traditionally been manufactured from high strength armour or specially modified plate steel (Bisalloy Armour, 2016). However, advanced ceramic composites have largely replaced steel as non-structural armour materials in some modern combat vehicles (CeramTec GmbH, 2018). Their properties, such as good strength combined with high hardness, make their manipulation ideal for the design of modern armour systems (Bracamonte et al., 2016). But, in some designs this has been limited by their low brittleness and toughness, which limit ballistic performance (Bhatnagar & Asija, 2016). Therefore, in this present NationStates design, ceramics have been joined with both metallic and long fibre reinforced composite backing plates to improve their ballistic performance (Simons et al., 2016).

For this NationStates design, limitation to depth of penetration (DOP) performance has been compared with similar schemes using ANSYS Autodyn: Equations of Motion three dimensional analysis (ANSYS Simulation, 2018) and LS Dyna hydrocode simulation. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation Standard 60O oblique and normal testing parameter have been used. Technical data for the ceramic and metal composition have been acquired by using the Johnson-Cook and Johnson-Holmquist (JH-2) constitutive models (Johnson–Holmquist damage model). With ongoing research and development, combined ceramic and metal modules design potentially allows armour system to face not just present impact velocities ranging from 1,500 to 1,800 metres per second, but also more lethal future impact velocities, which can range from 2,500 to 3,000 m/s (Cottrell et al., 2003).

T2009A3/4 ‘San Silvacian’ Main Battle Tank [VMK Verteidigung und Stahlwerke AG and Vickers Heavy Industries plc]

[Price: 9.75 million][Design updated in: 2018][Technology: Real Life Modern Technology]

The T2009 series of armoured fighting vehicles have transcended three different governments and wars in San-Silvacian. With its good mobility, reliably proven armament, and good armour, the T2009 series was considered at one time as the pinnacle of San-Silvacian tank designing, based on existing, proven standard technology which have already been used extensively by such nations as the modern United States of America, Federal Republic of Germany, State of Israel, Empire of Maxtopia, and the Republic of Bigtopia. The T2009 had shifted the ideology of San-Silvacian tank designing away from the latest — but relatively unproven — collection of ‘forward looking’ designs used by such nations as Allanea, Lamoni, Lyras, The Macabees, or Yohannes, towards a more pragmatic, realistically proven standard technology. One could therefore describe the impact the T2009 series of armoured fighting vehicles had on both San-Silvacian (and later the more conservative factions in Yohannes) as not dissimilar as to how the Centurion impacted British tank designing in general.

After its successful participation in the Invasion of Osthia crisis, in August 2012 a new variant of the T2009 series of tanks, the A4, was released for both export and domestic use. The A4 variant was specially reserved for nations that did not want to use the 140 mm tank gun seen on every T2009 series of tanks since its inception, and VMK AG was tasked by the San-silvacian government with developing the new variant. Now, using a standard technology Yohannesian variant of the realistically proven German Rheinmetall 120 mm conventional smoothbore tank gun, the T2009A4 should hopefully appeal to many of the more conservative members of the Wehrmacht, and those of the more conservative or reactionary nations outside the nineteen countries. In comparison to the King Tiger, the T2009A3/4 has (i) the capacity to hold more ammunition, (ii) more crew and internal space, (iii) less structural stress, (iv) cheaper maintenance price tag, and (v) a more reliably proven standard technology gun loading system.

ZM-7L ‘Dreadnought’ Strategic Bomber [Königreich Lindblum GmbH]

[Price: 2 billion][Design updated in: 2018][Technology: Real Life Modern Technology]

The ZM-7L Dreadnought is a heavy penetration strategic bomber by type. The ZM-7L, also known as the ‘Dreadnought’, is a military aircraft designed specially for the Luftwaffe for a variety of missions. A squadron of Dreadnought can fill the following roles: (i) precision strike; (ii) electronic attack and defence; (iii) aerial reconnaissance, intelligence, and surveillance; and (iv) weapon system and testing. Both the eighteen metres long aft-centre sections and the twenty-four metres long outboard sections were assembled at Königreich Lindblum facilities in the industrial heart of the Regency of Lindblum. Armaments bay for warload was designed in the aft-centre section of the aircraft, with integrated fuel tanks designed in the outboard sections of the aircraft, which have especially high concentration of composite materials.

The subcontractor assigned to design, construct, and assemble the intermediary wing sections, which took up over thirty per cent of the aircraft’s total airframe by weight, was Dietrich-Thordvaldsonn Farbenindustrie AG. With the responsibility to integrate these sections into the aircraft, the company was thus entirely responsible for the daunting task of smoothly integrating the aircraft’s fuel tank, wing structure, and the overall areas round the engine and landing gear for the design as a whole. Farbenindustrie AG contracted more than five companies to supply the military grade aluminium and titanium alloys required to construct the structural components that would harmoniously complement the modern composite components making up these sections. The Luftwaffe demanded that the aircraft must meet a minimum of “stealth” criteria through reduction in acoustic, electromagnetic, infrared, radar and visual signatures, which would hopefully reduce chance of detection by modern defensive systems. The flying wing platform, composite materials, and special coatings — with almost one hour’s worth of logistical and maintenance related work on the ground required for every minute of flight time being the outcome — were chosen based on these requirements.

To: Anago-Yohannesian Representative
From: General Tom Uruk, Obamacain

Though the Obamacainese military takes great pride in designing most of its armaments itself, it has come to our attention that some of our MBT's may be outdated. Our military engineers are working on creating a tank capable of today's war condition, but we are still very interested in the design that you have put forth.

Therefore, we would like to purchase 10 of your AY1 Serenity Battle Tank models. These tanks will be put through testing in order to judge their compatibility with current Obamacainese military systems and to judge their overall capabilities. Upon completion of testing, we will judge whether this tank is right for our army. If we judge it so, we will purchase the Production Rights.

Thank you for your service,
Tom Uruk

Subject: AY1 'Serenity' Main Battle Tank
Encryption: 100%

Ma'am, the production of this battle tank has come to our attention and it has intrigued me greatly. The battle-tank shows some characteristics and abilities I have never before seen, and the current tanks of the Siberian army come nowhere near in comparison with this particular case. As you may or may not know, Siberia is currently at war with the Freekish Empire and, as a result, is on a lot of pressure for vehicles and weaponry. This is why we are coming to you for this. Our government wishes to by the Domestic Production Rights of this tank. This should come to a total of NSD$30 billion. Thank you very much, the fate of our nation depends on this.
Sincerely,

Y0L-3O Long Range Search 3D Radar

Postby Yohannes » Wed Apr 06, 2011 12:36 pm

Image


The Y0L-3O, commonly called the ‘Yolo’, is a long-range search radar of the Royal Lindblum Company in Yohannes. It is a multibeam 3D radar operating in the lower D band frequency. It can instantly detect and automatically track up to 1,000 threats coming from the air and 100 ships at sea at the same time. The Y0L-3O can detect easily identifiable enemy patrol aircraft from up to 400 km range, and at the same time can also detect enemy small stealth missiles from up to ~100 km or low signature aircraft from up to 65 km range. It can also detect enemy ballistic missiles from up to ~1000 km range.

The Y0L-3O can do all of the above simultaneously in its reliable three dimensional elevation, range and azimuth data gathering and coverage system. In 2013, the Royal Lindblum Observatory - a R&D firm located in the Kingdom of Lindblum - jointly cooperated with the Royal Lindblum Company to develop the latest version of the radar, allowing it to now detect easily identifiable enemy aircraft from up to 480 km range at sea.

The Yolo - priced at 7.5 million NationStates or Universal Standard Dollar per set - is mainly exported by the Royal Beaufort Shipwrights Guild, and it can be purchased with the following application in our official storefront: [ click here ]


Technical details

Weight: 13,000 kg
Frequency: 1-2 GHz / D band
Antennae: 24 phased arrays arranged in linear pattern
Elements: 8 for receiving information and 16 for receiving and transmitting the acquired data
Elevation: 0-70O
Rotation speed: 12 rpm
Target tracking: a maximum range of 400 km / 480 km for ballistic missiles

ZM-7L Dreadnought Strategic Bomber

Postby Yohannes » Wed Apr 06, 2011 2:57 pm

Image


ZM-7L ‘Dreadnought’ Strategic Bomber [Königreich Lindblum GmbH]

[Price: 2 billion][Design updated in: 2018][Technology: Real Life Modern Technology]

The ZM-7L Dreadnought is a heavy penetration strategic bomber by type. The ZM-7L, also known as the ‘Dreadnought’, is a military aircraft designed specially for the Luftwaffe for a variety of missions. A squadron of Dreadnought can fill the following roles: (i) precision strike; (ii) electronic attack and defence; (iii) aerial reconnaissance, intelligence, and surveillance; and (iv) weapon system and testing. Both the eighteen metres long aft-centre sections and the twenty-four metres long outboard sections were assembled at Königreich Lindblum facilities in the industrial heart of the Regency of Lindblum. Armaments bay for warload was designed in the aft-centre section of the aircraft, with integrated fuel tanks designed in the outboard sections of the aircraft, which have especially high concentration of composite materials.

The subcontractor assigned to design, construct, and assemble the intermediary wing sections, which took up over thirty per cent of the aircraft’s total airframe by weight, was Dietrich-Thordvaldsonn Farbenindustrie AG. With the responsibility to integrate these sections into the aircraft, the company was thus entirely responsible for the daunting task of smoothly integrating the aircraft’s fuel tank, wing structure, and the overall areas round the engine and landing gear for the design as a whole. Farbenindustrie AG contracted more than five companies to supply the military grade aluminium and titanium alloys required to construct the structural components that would harmoniously complement the modern composite components making up these sections. The Luftwaffe demanded that the aircraft must meet a minimum of “stealth” criteria through reduction in acoustic, electromagnetic, infrared, radar and visual signatures, which would hopefully reduce chance of detection by modern defensive systems. The flying wing platform, composite materials, and special coatings — with almost one hour’s worth of logistical and maintenance related work on the ground required for every minute of flight time being the outcome — were chosen based on these requirements.

To Anago-Yohannesian Representative
From The Ministry of War


We have been in search of a another tank to serve in our armed forces, this tank most certainly is the sort of MBT we have been looking for. We have decided, as we have much disposable budget funds in our Defense Budget that we would like to obtain ten tanks for the sum of 138,000,000 NSD. We are sure that if these tanks perform beautifully and serve well, we shall purchase the Domestic Production Rights.

KDF Zeedier Class [SSK]

Postby Yohannes » Thu Apr 07, 2011 1:43 am

Out-of-character information: This is the design of Knootoss released for export in Royal Beaufort Shipwrights Guild, linearted by The Freethinkers
Image

KDF Zeedier of the Knootian Home Fleet



The Zeedier-class submarine is a Knootian-designed diesel-electric (SSK) submarine. It was originally commissioned during the Vogels administration as the first real Knootian combat submarine and – for a long time – the first-of-class KDF Dolfijn was the only submarine in service for the Marine of the Knootian Defence Force! The Dolfijn herself is now on display in a museum in Den Helder, although many of her sisters still serve the Marine faithfully.

Crewed originally by 49 men and women, the Zeedier-class submarines had much better crew facilities than other classes of comparable size and design. A decent diesel-electric engine plant gave the Zeedier class a good underwater range of 800km, and made it sufficiently silent underwater for effective use in reconnaissance and escort missions. Range was limited depending on performance, and the design optimised surface running to allow for effective patrolling.

The engine arrangment gave the submarine a speed of 17 knots when surfaced and 20 knots submerged, and the submarine could reach a maximum depth that exceeded 300 metres. The boat could carry up to 30 underwater mines or 18 21" torpedoes. With a then-new hydraulic torpedo reload system it could reload all four tubes in less than 5 minutes. The submarine was also capable of firing medium-range anti-shipping missiles, though these were rarely carried. The torpedoes were usually the MK48 as avaliable, though occasionally various marks of older, unguided weapons were used. The tubes could also be used to launch divers, and it was in this configuration that the first specialised support missions for Special Forces were conducted.

The Zeedier-class was extensively used to patrol the Reich coast as part of the cold war between the Reich and SATO, and underwent a Mid-life refit that brought them up to date with the modern state of submarine warfare, which included further automation, new sensors and a larger weapon load. The submarines were deployed offensively in the Iesus Christi Civil War, where they scored a number of successes against the Loyalist Naval Forces. Various covert operations in Knootian Colonies and the territories of Western Atlantic allies have been rumoured.

Although increasingly obsolescent as an attack submarine, the Zeedier has managed to retain its usefulness in a number of niche roles. As such, the vessels are usually transferred to standing guard fleets, and to training forces, rather than being decommissioned outright. There are still over one hundred and fifty serving vessels in the Knootian Marine, and all are expected to serve for at least a decade.

The remaining examples are used primarily as coastal patrol ships, capable and silent in shallow coastal waters hunting down infiltrators of various pedigrees and pirate forces. Generally, the first tour of a new submarine commander is conducted on a Zeedier, as the boats are considered more forgiving to inexperienced crews than the larger and more cumbersome Elementen submarines.

Although mostly replaced by the Vampier-class submarine in the role, two extended Zeedier boats were retained to support Special Forces operations. These are unofficially reported to be used for training purposes and operational use where the smaller Zeedier class can manoeuvre in shallow estuarine and inland water systems that would bar the large nuclear boats.

Just a thought about the use of an organic polymer in the armor, won't it (the protein) self ignite once the shaped charge hits and lose whatever effectiveness it has? And what about degradation issues, not to mention the loss of its properties when exposed to various biological, chemical, and/or radiological agents? If possible, are you willing to just sell the empty hulls of the tanks? Our nation's state engineers would like to add our own proprietary weapons, FCS, armor, engine, etc.

RCS Ardenfontein Class [AGB]

Postby Yohannes » Thu Apr 07, 2011 5:03 am

RCS Ardenfontein of the Home Fleet



The RCS (Royal Commonwealth Ship) Ardenfontein Class is a nuclear-powered multi-purpose icebreaker class in service with the Commonwealth Navy. Designed by Royal Beaufort Shipwrights Guild and commissioned in 25 December 1989, she was simultaneously conceptualised to fill the role of secondary off-shore supply, diving support, towing and research vessel. The reasoning was due to the fact that beyond periods in which icebreaking operation would be needed, the vessel may fill other operational roles which render its usage imperative.

The class was designed with an unusual bow structure: the lack of its sharp characteristic in comparison to most other open water navigational vessels. Viewed from a waterline horizontal angle, her bow is structurally flat in comparison to her overall width. The aforesaid feature was designed to combat difficult ice conditions. As a consequence of this bow structure however, the Ardenfontein Class will not effectively operate well, in comparison to other vessels, in open water. This was due to the fact that her bow would not be able to, in comparison to other vessels, allow her to resist multiple exceptionally strong, high wave impact.

As well noted, the class was designed with its unique exertion torque deliverance helically-incised cylindrical rod support, aft of the shaft propulsive to her hull. On top of that, she simultaneously is provided with the addition of another propulsive support in the form of of two forward pulling cylindrically incised rod. The propulsive force generated is delivered to her hull, giving the vessel an approximate 25% increase in additional structural thrust. Water streams are produced on the bow screws to lubricate the area between the vessel’s hull and its surrounding ice.

In heavy ice conditions, it is recommended for the vessel to be navigated upon by her aft direction. Her conventional aft form corresponds to the bow of modern effective sole icebreaker designs. However, this generates the high probability of underwater blade damage. There is high probability that surrounding ice will consolidate into the two blades’ middle space separation. During her conceptualisation, it has been noted that this will generate a complex issue; a field condition which cannot be fixed easily in an immediate operational situation.

However, following past debates in April 1990, Royal Beaufort Shipwrights Guild reverted the Ardenfontein Class' underwater blade arrangement towards that of two rotating cylindrical rods in place of her original rudder design, with an operational turning angle of 270o each, constructed side by side in relation to the other. This structural rotating screw arrangement was tested, successfully implemented and applied, as a result allowing the resistance of high ice load. The blade structure simultaneously functions as the primary breaker of ice ridges, disintegrating the aforesaid accumulation, throwing it aside in the process. The blade structure also aided maneuverability of the vessel in operational open water situation. The Ardenfontein Class has ever since been one of the main strategic operational vessels of the Commonwealth Navy to fill its off-shore material aid & supply vessel, diving support, vessel towing and deep sea research role.

The Ardenfontein Class is mainly exported by the Royal Beaufort Shipwrights Guild, and it can be purchased with the following application in our official storefront: [ click here ]
