what's a war board without a conflict?

Cold War projects Strelok 10/11/2020 (Sun) 08:50:41 No.7182
A thread to discuss everything from nuclear tanks to nuclear spacecraft, and many more things.
>>7182 And how could I forget about nuclear artillery? Or the nukes of peace?
>>7182 These nuclear tanks look very top-heavy and hard to handle. Why would anyone stick the engine in the turret?
>>7185 If I remember correctly, the idea was to make a floating tank. That turret should have enough internal volume for that, and the drive system seems to be electric. So basically they just had to reverse the usual way of supplying the turret with electricity from the hull. But yes, the general consensus is that it's retarded.
>>7182 So where's that faggot that knows about Brilliant Pebbles and SDI. All the nuclear stuff is boring when there's talk of MARAUDER and chemical lasers capable of damaging missiles in the 80's.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_84 very cool government. thank you. also what was the project with the giant cannon that shot computers into space to collect data for the space program.
>>7196 What do you even want to know? It was posited that there were strategic assets in the '80s that were capable of shooting down nuclear missiles, and that the Soviets (insofar as at least the Russians) were in on it. Half of that is technically public knowledge these days. >>7796 >Rex84 There are literally hundreds of these plans out there. War Plan White is still a thing, although it goes by different names these days. >also what was the project with the giant cannon that shot computers into space to collect data for the space program. High Altitude Research Project, aka Project HARP. Gerald Bull's only successful, publicly admitted super-gun.
>>7797 >What do you even want to know? Honestly? I want that anon to spoon feed me shit outside of Wikipedia. I didn't know about MARAUDER until early this year, probably because of that same anon. Take this for instance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mV6BCrbZbgY Pulsed laser launch vehicle. Good luck searching for that if you don't even know it exists. It was an offshoot of SDI that I learned about in the 90's. There was talk about Russia developing advanced EMP deterrents, which prevented the middle east getting worse than what it was.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Excalibur >Project Excalibur was a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) Cold War–era research program to develop an X-ray laser as a ballistic missile defense (BMD) for the United States.[1] The concept involved packing large numbers of expendable X-ray lasers around a nuclear device. When the device detonated, the X-rays released by the bomb would be focused by the lasers, each of which would be aimed at a target missile.[2] When detonated in space, the lack of atmosphere to block the X-rays allowed attacks on missiles thousands of kilometers away. Quite strange that this is the article of the day on wikipedia.

>>7182 Don't forget Project Pluto and the SLAM, the missile powered by an exposed nuclear reactor that was supposed to loiter over the Soviet Union releasing radioactive waste everywhere before detonating over its target.
