I asked an NCO what would happen if you tried to use the smoke generator on an Abrams if it were hooked up using current fuel. He said "You'd look like the Bat Mobile for about ten seconds before the hull caught on fire."

Still cracks me up.

Doesn't the Abrams just use JP-8 for fuel like everything else?

Yes. I've been told that it used to use JP-5 but I'm not sure that's right. Every Abrams I've worked with has had the fuel line responsible for smoke generation disconnected because of fire risk.

How effective would HEAT or straight up AT rounds from a T-64 or any tank be against a building? Its gonna penetrate but will it just keep passing through like a bullet or will it gently caress poo poo up in the room on the other side?

SABOT is the one that would go through the house. And the next one...and the next one...

So if you put this on a nuclear-powered ship, would you be able to charge the capacitors to achieve a reasonable firing rate off one reactor without killing power to the rest of the ship? It seems like you would need a vessel built around this weapon system to make it work. One gun and a giant power plant.

e: I thought I read about these and the barrel life is basically nothing anyways

That's another good point, I wasn't even thinking about the barrel. Best analogue I can think of from personal experience is the Abrams- high velocity rounds like the super sabot count as 2.5 shots on a barrel rated for 2500 shots. Betting that rail gun rounds just eat barrels.

Best screenshot I could get. I'm not sure if the launcher split or if this is a result of low framrate.

quote:

When the Alraigo, with the jet atop the containers, docked at Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a horde of reporters was on hand. The ship’s crew and owners filed a salvage claim and were awarded some £570,000 ($1.14 million at the time) as compensation for the “rescue.” When Watson returned to the Illustrious, a Board of Inquiry essentially did nothing. But when the Illustrious returned to port, Watson underwent a second Board of Inquiry.

Gotta love maritime law.
