Researchers in China have developed a new concept for a submarine that could potentially travel inside an air pocket at almost the speed of sound. Source
Supercavitation torpedoes have been around for a while - not a new concept, not developed by the Chinese. The USSR developed this in the 1960s. The Germans and US are working on/have further developed the supercavitation tech.
The current problem is there’s no way to maneuver a supercavitation torpedo (or sub) in a meaningful way to make it a real threat.
When an anime/manga series (Arpeggio of Blue Steel) gives you more accurate information than a “source for facts” then there’s something seriously wrong.
Quoth the Raven “Fuck you”
I have decided on my next rifle - after I move that is.
So yeah, my sister did a thing a bought a kitten.
Its name is Gavin.
No, we didn’t name him that. That was his name already.
Ladies and gentlemen, Michael (me) and Gavin (cat).
Just some shots of my friends Swedish Mauser. A good looking rifle I think.
Holy shit, this one has no walls. And a walrus. It’s wall-less except for the walrus.
Finally managed to take some pictures of my ‘43 Long Branch Lee Enfield I picked up yesterday. The bolt and receiver have matching serials, but the magazine is not original. The receiver is stamped “(F) FTR” so it’s gone through some repairs at Fazakerley, probably in the late 40s-early 50s. The bore is really clean too. And I love the battle sight.
I oiled it up last night, the bolt is so smooth and quick. I’m really looking forward to taking it to a range.
