    EMP Missile Is No Longer Science-Fiction

    After posting that, I did have that very thought. For the purposes of capturing equipment, one might want to use EMP. However, couldn't you also capture tanks knocked out by things other than EMP? Either that or take abandoned tanks or other such equipment. Aside from the fact that main...

    EMP Missile Is No Longer Science-Fiction

    Actually, Russia and China both have technology for unmanned aircraft. They are not as widely used because they have not been as developed in those countries as in the US. On top of that, Iran has old drones from the Chinese and Russians, as well as a handful of their own. In addition...

    EMP Missile Is No Longer Science-Fiction

    Technically, development of non-nuclear EMP munitions has been going on for a long time. This technology is still most certainly not ready to be fielded, despite ongoing research by both the United States and Russia. Aside form that, I hardly see that this would actually be super...

    Heroes you yelled "YOU IDIOT!" at.

    Allow me to put your mind at ease, then, good sir. That ending was not originally supposed to be in the film. The original ending actually makes much more sense. Originally, the zombie/vampire things banging on the glass were actually revealed to be intelligent, something the film had hinted...

    Halo Movie Would Have Lacked Faces

    Didn't the books describe what John's face looks like? It's not necessarily an important secret. I just never held it against Bungie because he just looked cooler with his complete armor. Of course there is that and the fact that John-117 obviously has a personality, but when in the games...

    U.S. Navy's New MMO Wants Your Energy-Saving Solutions

    This is a man of Britain posting, I assume. Well, just let me remind you that the UK does not have anything close to the power projection of the US. maybe you have the ability to get something anywhere you want it to be... but then what do you do with it? The only aircraft carrier you had...

    Mounted Combat Comes to Skyrim

    Horseback makes for a pretty damn good sword fighting platform, especially if the footmen have a hard time getting at you on your huge mammal.

    Really? I thought the ships used diesel instead of... what is it, JP8? Makes sense, though, we do like using flexible fuel options.

    U.S. Navy's New MMO Wants Your Energy-Saving Solutions

    You sound exactly like the major European powers between 1900 and 1914. The view then was, as it is today, that the major European empires are too economically intertwined for a massive war to be viable. Come 1914... well, you know. Anyway, the fact is, China is a huge concern for the US...

    U.S. Navy's New MMO Wants Your Energy-Saving Solutions

    Are you kidding? There are tons of articles, not to mention official military concerns, of a conflict against the Chinese. People that have said large wars will never happen again because of X reason have been consistently proved wrong... by larger wars than at any point in previous history...

    DC Says One Of Its"Iconic" Heroes Is Gay

    I had this exact same thought haha.

    U.S. Navy's New MMO Wants Your Energy-Saving Solutions

    Easier said than done. The vast majority of energy you can derive from dipping hydro electric power generating plants into the water will come directly from the kinetic energy your engines have already given you. In short, you're basically wasting energy on something that would give you less...

    U.S. Navy's New MMO Wants Your Energy-Saving Solutions

    Actually, the navy considered changing everything to nuclear back in the 1950's and 1960's, but it found running a nuclear powered ship is significantly less energy efficient than running on diesel, as most of our fleet does now. Unless the vessels have some particular reaosn which causes them...

    Trailers: Naval War: Arctic Circle - Dev Video Diary, Episode 1

    Well, the NATO vs Russia story, especially in this case, is justified. It's a naval war game, so Russia, who still has some enmity toward NATO let us not forget, with its naval firepower, would be the obvious choice. Canada, on the other hand, plays about as much a role as the UK. Definitely...

    War of the Roses Preview

    In my defense, I was thinking more the heavier armor worn by knights who would fight mounted in any case, as opposed to other knights and men-at-arms who would fight without horses (in this case, then, usually lower class men-at-arms, as knights could usually afford horses), as foot soldiers...
