    How do flak-cannons work?

    WC Military Inaccuracies

    If someone can cite some proof that the USAF plans to continue using B-52s up to the 2040s then I'll rest my case. Until then... t.c.cgi: AFAIK as time goes by and newbuild B-52s aren't produced the cost of producing parts for existing B-52s will increase, resulting in diseconomies of...

    WC Military Inaccuracies

    AFAIK there are no more plans to build anymore B-52s. The existing B-52H models aren't likely to last four decades of service. More than likely, by that time if the USAF is still using B designated airacraft, they'd probably have B-2[insert improved variant designator] and probably some new...

    Pin Pinching

    This reminds me of a similar event in my life. When I was a little kid one day I was happily playing with one of my Transformers toys. There was nobody in the house except me, my sister and my grandmother. I went to the bathroom. I was gone for only a few minutes. When I came back my...
