  1. Unchecked anyway. But you know I always make an exception for you, jimbo.
  2. Thanks for your high quality problem solving post that just spent three or four sentences patronizing people and name calling instead of contributing to the conversation and paying attention to what anyone was actually saying. Really shows the overall quality that this community has become.
  3. Actually the website right now is a mess to find anything. What a discombobulated mess.
  4. I was glad to see I wasn't the only one confused. Also, is Klipsch done with headphones altogether? Can only seem to find the HP-3's and earphones.
  5. Get the job done, comfort is secondary. Or something like that.
  6. They don't ride for poo either from what I understand. Talked to many a Marine (and Soldier) that said they'd rather ride in an open air jeep than sit 20 minutes in one of them.
  7. The Hustler was a tragic tale all in the same vein as many other Cold War designs. LeMay liked the concept, but the problem I think it ran into was it had too much association with other century-series aircraft and designs - that got it some public flack. Then the reconsolidation of aircraft in the 1960s pretty much made sure it was never going to come back. Between the A-5 and the F-111, it's mission was covered - on paper anyway.
  8. The B model has an uparmored airframe. That's another key reason, aside from the cheaper and more affordable powerplants. The USAF also figured it could execute mission objectives in a CZ due to the deployment of the Wild Weasel roles - so the need for outrunning SAMs was seen as second nature requirements. When they revisited the notion of how to deal with the SAM-gap issue, the ATB program resulted - we got the B-2 from that. Subsequent development will likely show itself in the 2037-Bomber which is almost certain to meet a super-sonic requirement, stealth requirement, and be able to punch higher than the previous iterations of aircraft. The YF-22 was faster than the F-22. Have Blue was spec'd higher than the F-117. You have to remember the B-1A was a technology demonstrator for all intents and purposes. They rarely keep the same spec's as they had in RDE phases.
  9. The Bone. A plane that lends it's existence largely to North American Aviation and later Richard Nixon. RDE from the Valkyrie Program was cannibalized through various channels. The XF-108 tech got passed through to the A-5 Vigilante. The XB-70's technology went to the B-1A. It was Nixon and his SecDef that defined a need that revived the Bone subsequently in 1971, with the first B-1B design off the ground in 1974. Interestingly enough, the Valkyrie Program, and the Archangel Program crossed paths several times, and had trickle down technology into modern day concepts, many of which are still being used (i.e. the B-1, the F-22, TR-X, and the F-35).
  10. Flash drop on this for this weekend, I'm feeling itchy right now. $600 shipped will take it!
  11. It's not an AR-15 though...
  12. You're way wrong about that. For starters, this is a .22 cal - a tiny round that is great for target practice and training yourself up to handle a rifle - the explicit purpose I bought it for. Not so great for a guy running at you with armor and a rifle much larger caliber than you. Sure as hell isn't going to do much in a CZ. This (which I also got last week) however is EXACTLY what they used in World War II. .30-06. Lots more firepower than the puny .22 that I posted up there.
  13. That went over my head, care to explain to the rest of the class?
