Enjoy your Australian and German sales, Rampa. :P

Nuttah @ [3] It Came For DTA II (Co-Op Mission)

Yeah, they've been around since at least March of last year.
I think they may have been modified somewhat, though I'm not sure.

Minor nit: "Under their control." May I also suggest "New generation of stealth technology," or somesuch?

So, nothing to throw at people but FAB-250s, then? Not that I'm complaining. Still more than the old GLA could drop on a single target.

So, will we happen to be able to outfit it with some more dastardly payloads, or is it a tech airfield plane?

Nuttah @ [2] Forged Payback (Co-Op Mission)

If anything, it's a reversal of TD GDI 04, with Nod resorting to sneakier tactics from an initial position of weakness.

Well, with the apparent sizes and shapes of the various beasties that show up in this world, there's bound to be a pretty wide niche for some really...entertaining weaponry.

Eh, NOD 1 only really wants you to remove a local warlord because he disagrees with you.
Now, NOD 4, on the other hand...

Dem Czech hedgehogs...in two flavours!
Any chance we could get to build them? Though, I'm not sure if the engine supports any efficient ways of plopping those things down.

Why double-sided, though? Wouldn't it be more sensible to have all the available firepower pointing in the same direction, so you can bring it to bear at once?

Nuttah @ Pyrios and Tenorra

Probably depends on your orbital resourcing infrastructure.
A semi-autonomous mine that can actually sit out there without its fuel tank exploding will probably hit 100+kg dry mass pretty quickly, while your usual 105mm kinetic penetrator, at least groundside, is somewhere in the 5-10kg range (5 is -old-, and 10 seems to be DU), both ought to be pretty easy to mass produce if you don't have to drag their materials from the bottom of a gravity well, and the difference in velocity they'd achieve in impact is probably negated by their respective size differences, and the fact that the bulk of the impact when their use overlaps is going to be thoughtuflly provided by the target anyhow.

Though, yes, you'll be wanting to have guns* for a dedicated invasion. Or, perhaps both, since the purpose of one would be more to make entering orbit difficult, rather than impossible.

*And speaking of, something that I haven't seen mentioned in the context of space combat: How about a return to APCR rather than saboted shot? It's not like you have aerodynamics to contend with, and you already expended energy pushing that extraneous light(er) metal brick to muzzle velocity anyhow.

Nuttah @ Pyrios and Tenorra

I did a brainfart and forgot the max temperature is limited by the reactor material anyway, so it doesn't really matter that much. >_>

So you -could- also take the same rough mass of tungsten, strap a solar panel and a chemical propulsion* bus to it, and tell it to stick its merry face in the way of any 'hot' interplanetary object without the proper clearance.

Nuttah @ Pyrios and Tenorra

As you should, lest your rockets be more powerful weapons than your actual weapons but I was mainly musing over the name at that point.
Still leaves me wondering how big a piece of tungsten you'd need to screw with someone's orbital insertion burn.

Nuttah @ Pyrios and Tenorra

It's still going to be a pretty large number relative to chemical engines, and, coming back to my original point, with the mass flow to push your four-digit tonne ship at 3g, the area immediately prograde of it will still be a very uncomfortable mix of high-velocity fusion products, vaporised water or hydrogen from the afterburner*, and a few stray radioactive particles.
...so it would probably seriously affect an object that's trying to violently block its path.

*Bit of a misnomer with a rocket, though, isn't it? Works in the exact opposite of a conventional afterburner.

Nuttah @ Pyrios and Tenorra

Suddenly, I'm having evil, horrible, Kirklin mine-shaped ideas regarding that.

Then again, off the top off my head, that sounds like an energy output in the four-digit-Megawatt* range and five digit exhaust velocities, so lest I came in from the side, somehow, my idea would probably get vaporised by the thing accelerating before the 'target' would even notice there being something in the way.
Friggen Kzinti Lesson. :/

*Most likely entirely under the mark as far as the number goes, in which case just add zeroes till it works out.

That sounds like it's going to be one hell of a Hohmann transfer.
Probably makes one wish they could drop tungsten instead.

Huh, interesting, didn't even know there was a problem with those.
But for the most part, I was just making a long-winded reference to Bridge on the River Kwai in any case.

Say, if you're going to strap a Hind to a baloon, why not turn the cockpit portion upside-down and fit the turret to slightly behind the pilot instead?

Ooooor maybe it was all because:
a) Because it's cool.
b) Because it adds a bit of depth.
c) Because they can.
