It is talked about in nuclear war scenarios. That the cities will not be attacked, at the beginning, of a nuclear war. That they will be held, as nuclear hostages. That the nukes used, will target the military basically.

In current on going war, in Ukraine. (Actual current facts). Russia attacks cities right away, in conventional warfare anyway. So I would expect E.M.P.s for sure, to be used on cities. Then your government, gets to show you all it's (right stuff) in feeding you, and providing law and order, medical help, and such. Which probably will be a horror, and death, for most people. Starvation, lawlessness, public executions of law breakers, or imprisonment, etc.

Huge logistics issues (feeding, warming, cooling, millions) for various countries. The Russians care lots about, causing serious logistics issues. They may not want us dead, but starving instead.

Within 6 months, of Japan having it's oil off, the USA was attacked, and war was declaired.

Well Russia formally protests weapons aid to Ukraine. Using typical state department protocol. Warns of unpredictable consequences. Saying if this was serious. Russia would contact the military directly. I disagree. Russia wants to talk to people directly I think, as the US does, all the time to the world. I guess. Could be wrong. Forcing poeple like this 2:55 into video, to respond. Dance.

Well 7:42 into video below. Armoured Urban Combat Vehicle has 2 grenade launchers in front. Indicates Russia wants or thinks tank crew, may not have, support infantry. Infantry dead, or left behind. Tank still more effective, without combined arms. Better than it should be, without protective infantry. Not all infantry, has a javelin, or whatever. Other fighting vehicles to, may not be able to take it out. Even has 4 anti tank guided missiles for Urban, fairly close range, combat. There 2 main cannon can use a varierty of ammo. I assume anti personnel too. Removal of the 2 grenade launchers may indicate they want to engage from farther away. May indicate, they want infantry, to have less options, to respond back with. Less ways to attack back with. Because of distance. Not using the N.A.T.O. standard rapid and overwhelming force doctrine. But slower and overwhelming force doctrine. Destroy all in your path, as needed. From farther away. Like out of 50 cal range.

All these fires in places that are happening, are very suspicious. All these modern buildings, are supposed to have sprinkler systems in them. Lots and lots, of sprinklers to. Or fire suppression systems. Those systems may be computer controlled. Hence them cyber warfare can be used against them. Get ride of all wireless and internet access. stick wires (copper or fibre optic) inside steel pipes and such. Something anyway. Locked rooms, and all that. If it's not too late already. count downs started. As in not receive signals stuff starts happening. Kind of like with USA nuclear submarines. Don't get certain signals, they launch. So military, already know about such things.

Well about 10 minutes into this video. Says US warships have been made of aluminum, and have suffered galvanic corrosion. On outboard motors, at one time anyway. At the very bottom, of the outboard motor, there was a sacrificial metal piece, of magnesium, attached to the hull of the motor. Via screws or whatever. Looked like a upside down shark fin. Had to replace it, like ever 6 months, it was in the water for that long, or something like that time wise. Magnesium metal, is more reactive that the hull basically. Or whatever it's attached to, with the water still going over it, I guess. To different metals in salt water, act like a salt water battery basically. Physical electrical contact with the metal of the hull, and in the salt water to. Or whatever is corroding I guess.

Well looks like thye figured it out anyway. Talked about this before anyway.

So in the famous words from Ambassador Kosh, on the TV show Babylon 5 (And so it begins).
Four European gas buyers have paid Russia in rubles for supplies, bucking the EU's urging in the energy face-off
Well lots of countries are export countries and will still want to export. If there money, gets more valuable. They can buy more to. Etc. Nothings perfect.

So Joe Biden's electric tank. It might have some merit. So some people on TV were laughing about his idea. You can use liquid fuel, to power a diesel generator, to power a electric tank engine.

That means you can have a armoured fuel container, outside the tank. So at the very end of the tank your fuel container is there. Then you have your armoured diesel electric generator right after the fuel tank.

Then your diesel generator, sends electricity, via wires, to your electric engine, inside the tank. Instead of flammable fuel, being put inside the tank, with people and explosives.

Instead of having one big electric engine. You can have many much smaller electric engines. One directly attacked to each wheel, on each side, of a M1 Abrams Main battle tank. Nine on each side. So 18 total electric engines. Or have less engines. Smaller electric engines, easier to make, than much bigger ones.

If one engine, on each side, stops working, for any reason. You still have 16/18 (8/9) total power available, still basically. Greater than 85% total speed still available. Instead of being left behind. Can go back to base for maintenance, if nothing else. By yourself to.

Electric engines have less parts, and are more efficient. So more horse power, for a given sized engine. Don't get as hot either.

Talk about having rechargeable batteries by some. Lithium batteries, seem to burn easily, and are hard to put out, once on fire. I rather have less batteries, and some capacitors banks, or super capacitor banks. They work off physics and not chemistry. Capacitors are two electrical conductors, separated by a electrical insulator. Can use any metal like special bullet resistant metal alloys, and a insulator called Kevlar, if you want. In the floor of the tank. Or something, even more bullet and blast resistant, in them. Especially if you roll up the capacitors, really tight. Easy to make and can be a foot thick, if you want. Link to making a capacitor below.

If the special bullet resistant metal alloys can not be bent. A capacitor can be make with stacked plates and compressed with the Kevlar or whatever as a electrical insulator and bullet and blast resistant material. Would look sort of like a pizza box but thicker maybe. Can be a foot thick to, if you want.

Capacitors can be charged and discharged, much more quickly, than a battery. Recharged a infinite amount of times to, basically. Batteries have a much higher, amp hour density though.

A ordinary liquid fuelled vehicle. Went it runs of out fuel, just stops. I rather have more fuel than batteries.

So if you have ever taken apart even a small electric motor. They have 6 or 8 coils in them. Basically each coil is the entire length of the motor casing. So if you took that coil off and replaced it with 2 or 3 or 4 coil. Setup to act like one coil still. north south north south, etc. It still magnetically looks like that one electromagnet coil. With the proper wiring and power control electronics in the motor. If you lost one of those four coils from working. You would still have 75% of the power output, of the original one coil, out of the six coils originally. So 6 times 4 is 24 coil. Or 12 coils, whatever. Makes the electric engine more robust that way.

Regular engines are more tough, in some ways, than electric engines. Especially if a electric motor, has a big circuit board in them. Less heat, but more circuit board parts. Metal is tougher than a circuit board. Circuit boards, need to be made very well.

Electric motors are electrically and rf noisy to. Snubbers circuits and such, can fix that. Large non-polarized capacitors, across motor terminals. Soft start. Shielding.

Well it looks like a electronic hobbyist is going to strike again. All the talk for energy storage for power plants, is super awesomeness future batteries, a bigger water reserve, moving weights, etc. What about using capacitors? This is another good example of how people, including engineers. Get caught up in there thinking. Trapped.

They rely on physics, and not chemistry, where the battery degrades, based upon recharge cycles. Capacitors don't have near the same watt hour storage, of any battery basically. But they are easy to make. You can make one, 5 feet high and 5 feet wide. Make lots of them to. That just a engineering problem. More space.

Have the capacitor wound around a rod, or tube, or spool. Most of the capacity is from the outside winding, of the capacitor. To make it easy to transport or whatever.

Can just make them just bigger to. Seven feet wide, has so much extra feet, of metal sheets and electric insulator added, you get a huge increase in capacity. Like a really big roll of toilet paper.

The energy storage of a capacitor is based upon the stored voltage too. Energy storage increases, by the square of the voltage. So 4 squared is 16. 8 squared is 64. When two capacitors that are the same, are connected in series, you get 1/2 the total storage, of the two capacitors together. But they can handle, 2 times the voltage. From end to end.

So that means less fancy, high voltage breakdown materials, are needed, to make high voltage storage capacitors. Just need more space. Video here explaining energy storage in a capacitor. Notice the V squared. Can use 5, one foot high, sheets of metal, put together to make a 5 foot high capacitor. Or 5, physical, one foot high capacitors, stacked on top of each other, and in parallel or series.

Do I need to say how much better for the environment this is compared to batteries. No Lithium needed for this. For this one thing anyway. Capacitors do not store energy for a long time either. But long enough for peak power demands. Charges and discharges fast to. Properly made the useful lifetime is not based upon charge and discharge cycles, but years and decades. Capacitors can also discharge, (lower voltage), much more deeply, than batteries can. Without degrading the capacitor. Like what happens with batteries (drastic decrease in useful life).

Well can't fine a certain video. Showed some Chinese tanks having missile launchers on them. Seems to be in NATO tanks. That the main cannon is basically, a semiautomatic rifle barrel, in lots of ways. So you have to aim very precisely, at long ranges, to get a hit with your bullet. So they have scopes and such, to help with that.

Some of those Chinese tanks had anti-aircraft missiles, and some were anti-tank guided missiles. In this linked below, some of these missile, can travel farther, than a main battle tank can, shoot back at. To me, it means Chinese tank crews, can get a shot off fast, at another tank, with a self, or laser guided missile. Which is going to freak out, the other tank crew. Can be self guided, or guided onto target without taking the time to aim super precisely. Can steer it, for impact on the target. I think that is a big advantage. Get less accurate aims shots off quickly and still get killing hits. This video is about anti-tank weapon systems. Still talks about there missiles and the missile ranges. This means, you get more first round fired salvo hits, and less of the enemy force, shoots back, because, they have been destroyed, for the second counter attack. And so on. Becoming more and more of a one sided battle. If it is a self guided missile when launched. A N.A.T.O. tank can kill that Chinese tank, that launched, and still get taken out. So 2 shots anyway fairly fast. A self guided missile and a cannon round, or 2 self guided missiles launched, etc.

Missiles still cheaper than a tank and it's crew, with training time. Especially in the opening days of war. Doesn't need to be man portable. So can be bigger and badder.

Well is being said now, that there is a shortage of tourniquets, for people to buy. The Canadian jam knot, seems to be a special knot. You pull on the tag (short) end, it loosens, and you pull on the other end, it tightens. That easy. Much better than nothing. With some type of added knot, to keep it securely tighten, after applying. May want loops in each end, to add leverage, for a reusable tool, to tighten even more, than by hand. Make it easy to pull tight, and maybe a cutting edge too. Easy to learn to make.

Can have two pieces of duck tape. With all ends, of server tourniquets, already sandwiched between them. Then rolled up, and place in a bag. Tear one off to use. Whatever. Tag end might need to be a bit longer. Test out first. Can have 2 or 3 pre-placed, on your legs, for example, pretty easily.

Also in second video link below. These warriors were extremely hard to kill. Why? Because they wore tight strips of cloth tightly bound, over there bodies it is said. Chest tourniquets pre-worn. Can think of it like that. To survive. In animation, on certain spots, of there arms, and I assume, legs to. Stretched out tight, chest Girdles. Doesn't have to be perfect. Gives added time, because blood loss, is slowed down. Much better than nothing. Maybe something that kind of looks like a sex bondage setup with straps that can be tighted quickly. With some tool or something. A chest girdled, made out of tourniquets, connected together vertically, up and down, on each side. With webbing, or whatever. Pull straps on one side to tighten. Same with your legs, down to the knees. Can have some type of plastic rod, that pulls out vertically, on one of your sides, and that snaps tight, or something. Fast. Springs or something. Whatever. 2 or 3, so you can move around. 1 per tourniquet?

Old playbooks seems to have been thrown out in regards to Russian doctrine. When statements are being made. Like "Biden is being replaced as 'leader of the free world': Nigel Farage". Well in that game, you are all in. When such claims are being made. Now people in Russia are making comments, about wiping Britain off the face of the earth with nuclear weapons, basically. Because Boris Johnson wanted to look good in the press, as far as I am concerned personally. (With very dangerous things going on). Well this is how the game is played apparently. I'm sure the USA, might be more than willing, to let Britain, be a world leader again, in this press opps opportunity for Boris Johnson. If the entire world, didn't have to worry about WW3 breaking out, and maybe nuclear war breaking out to.

Hate to say it. But it looks like the Russians are the only adults in the room. In this issue unless. Britain wants to actually, deal with this issue personally. Or Boris Johnson himself, wants to take center stage, with this world spanning, developing crisis. Some leaders in Britain, getting a bit of, a reality check. Possible consequences. If they want skin in the game they can of course, put skin in that game. Politicians, being so powerful, and all. Drag there entire countries into war, and maybe destruction to. Not saying I like this. They need to be a little bit more careful. This is not ordinary politics. I know, I am stupid, and uneducated, in this issue really. Russia and NATO, do not appear, to be backing down. For the valid reasons, to some, given now. This should have, never happened. Entire countries, are openly, picking sides now. Out of fear, on all sides to. Other reasons to. Scared peoples, nations, sometimes make, quick, rash, improper decisions, in hind sight. Lock things up for politicians. Less likely to make quick rash decisions. That is, all we, all got.

Casual off handed remarks being made in the press. Or not, casual off handed remarks. By powerful people. Not use to having to deal with, the consequences, of the things they say. I hope this is a learning moment, of all mankind. Especially powerful people. Hopefully the national press, learns something to. He has lots of company.

(The sun never sets on the British empire). Sometimes peoples believe, they have a right, because of past glories, to make far reaching decisions, that can affect the entire world. Immediately or eventually. Even though these formerly glorious empire, that did rule most of the world, lost everything, through mismanagement, and corruption. One of the biggest factors that made WW2 much worst. Was the secret peace treaty, between France and Britain, that forced Britain, into fighting the German, and then the general outbreak of WW2 started. While at the same time, Britain had to go begging, to the USA, for help. Because of there war fighting incompetence, and other reasons. So it was claimed. A secret peace treaty.

You have actors and such now going to Ukraine for a photo opps. Russian, Canadian, US, British citizens, and others. Ukrainians. All we do, is suffer and die, when war breaks out. Then in the history books later on. You read about this mighty leader, and that mighty leader. We the dead, are a mere number mentioned, as a footnote, in history. The ones, who did, the actual fighting, and dying, and sacrificing. Oceans of blood. Oceans beaches, turn blood red. This time maybe. As far as the eye can see. People burned into charcoal. Trees to. Sand turned to glass.

I was told in school, if I remember correctly. That the flowers, you wear, on remembrance day. The 11th month, and 11th day, and all that. Are a copy, of the flowers that bloomed, in or around nuclear craters, days after the detonations, in Japan. Kind of remember, seeing some short film, or something. Was in high school during the height of the cold war.

Sorry Mr. Farage. They say, god works in mysterious ways. This might turn out, to be really important. Hopefully, we will never really know. It seems to work like that. Never really sure. Mostly.

Nigel Farage himself. Is saying, the Russians are making comments to indicate, they consider this ongoing situation, worst that the Cuban Missile crisis. (This is sick).

Biden is being replaced as 'leader of the free world': Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage: This is sick

He has lots of company.
This is our fight, German opposition leader says on Ukraine visit

There is a serious problem with advanced fighters and such. What if your enemies decides, they can't not do anything effective, against them directly. But decides to come after them and you, indirectly. Lateral warfare techniques. Take out your fuel pipelines, fuel storage. Take out your warehouses. Take out you bridges. Take out your air bases. Etc. Lateral warfare to take out stored logistics, and production, and a nations ability, to transport goods. Destroyed airports, train-yards, etc. So that means, at the outbreak of warfare, lots will get chucked at each other fast, potentially. There one day, gone the next. Cities infrastructure. Power, water plants, hospitals.

It seems these fancy fighters and bombers, don't have much bomb, and missile carrying capacity. So to hit hard, the must use tactical nukes. 1 KT or bigger. Which the USA has only a couple hundred of, all together. Most bigger than that.

ISRAEL Tests Powerful Laser System. Just a toy for the video pic.

Still being harassed. Not allowed to sleep last night. Kept up. Various gang members banging around. Tried to go to sleep again, hours later, after I got woken up. Right away, various gang members in here banging around. R.C.M.P. act like they are morons, and don't know, or care, they are gang members, doing anything they can to me. R.C.M.P. acting like, they never made threats of violent and death threats to me before. Gang members, depending on whatever they can do, and get away with. Do whatever they can to me. Put this in my google drive. Will add more info now to. Thought it would be a good surprise knowledge, to make a death ray l.a.s.e.r. for the U.S.A. military. Intercepting maybe, even hyper velocity missiles. Cruise missiles anyway, attacking ships. Harassed throughout the day to.

So you can see in picture below, how a l.a.s.e.r. in made, and works. Read about this stuff for years. So it only has a output efficiency of about 2% to 5%. So 100 watts of light input, gives you 2 to 5 watts of laser output. The problem is the light source, in wrapped around the ruby cylinder, in this situation. What you want, is a focus-able flashlight, behind the ruby laser tube. You should get 80% to 90% output then. Lets just say 50%. Ten times the output energy. Assuming you even want to bother making it a laser, and not just maybe, use it as a focused heat ray basically.

I use to browser through a princess auto catalogue, when I was a kid sometimes, wishing. They had a 1 million candle power halogen light, you could put on your trucks, roll bar. Like 6 or 8 inches in diameter. So use like, a 100 million candle power light bulb. Whatever.

Can have several of these laser interceptors, all being focused, using a lens, and sent straight out, or through a ruby tube, or whatever. Can use gases to, as light source, or both. Then you use electricity for gasses. Needs to be high enough voltage, to make the gas become a conductor (break down voltage). Then the higher the current, the brighter and hotter, the gas becomes. Can use more than one death ray, or laser to destroy target. If it can turn the air to plasma, from far away enough. I guess, you could call it a plasma cannon. Not very likely. Plasma conducts electricity to. (Lightning bolts). Can use a spiral shaped light bulb filament, shaped, as the inside, of light bulb, to give it more output. (Break into pieces and power each separately).

Filaments break. Metal fatigue, caused by rapid heating, from room temperature, to greater than 1000 degrees (C). Use a soft start circuit, that only preheat the filaments, and glass, to red hot. A second or 2 or 3 seconds, to reach red hot. Much less thermal stress. Than as needed, it can be turned up to full power.
Font Auto part Parallel Cylinder Drawing

So Israel, has a really powerful looking laser gun. I think they have laser diodes or whatever, all along the inside, of the tube on brackets, or whatever. More than one pointed, on the same spot, of some lens. All over the focusing lens. Multiple lasers on the inside, hitting all of the lens, multiple times, with smaller laser beams. Aiming a laser, is kind of like aiming a spot light. Can see 9 minutes in, how strong it is. Some type of time lapse photo, used I think. More can be said, I guess. 10:12 can see tube. There is something called M.A.S.E.R.s to. Use good old tubes, or cavities like in microwave ovens.

This is a good indicator the Putin and Russia doesn't want a war with Ukraine. Wants to keep it a special operation. Hopefully anyway.

China does not have to attack Taiwan. Only act like it will, and maybe want to. Be ready to attack. This ties up huge amounts, of American military resources. People plus hardware tied up. A huge help for Russia. Makes sense that German is rearming. People are saying that. Americas stocks of advanced, man portable missiles, are being depleted at a alarming rate.

Might start seeing all terrain cargo trucks, Ford F150s, being developed. Less fuel usage. That can deliver, to big, and heavy to move easily, missiles systems and such, for infantry to setup. Even using all terrain 4 wheelers. No armour, or very lightly armoured against some rifle rounds, especially for driver, getting you of of there. Being in a unexpected location. But still engaged. Maybe a armoured fuel tank and 2 switchable over, fuel tanks to. Radio. Maybe like old WW2 jeeps type stuff to. Speed. Can deliver bullets, beans, and ban-aids. Scouting, and small resupply. A plow in front help out infantry a lot. Like a truck, with a snow plow, and other attachments. Maybe take a injured person or two away. Fuel resupply in the field. You are in friendly territory. You have better micro logistics. Transport a few people. Missiles that can engage tanks from outside the range they can not shoot back at you at. From 5 to 10 miles away. One click of a mic on the radio in north or position Echo 3. Whatever. Remotely operated. From miles away. By infantry. Right there. Missle can only travel 2 miles or whatever. Infantry miles away. Sometimes. Infantry far enough away. Local decoys to draw fire, that really shooting, at the enemy. Infantry will kill everybody, in sight. Always then. To be sent to camps. Happens anyway. Mostly. I seen Red Dawn, and the news.

Make 500 trails on purpose everywhere, on purpose, to confuse, and confound the enemy. When you got to take it anyway. A little harder. By all terrain vehicles and by foot. Can be dropped of supplies. Somewhat close. Much less hoofing involved. Fast resupply to many that way. To some anyway. Hard-points for M60s or whatever. anti-tank and anti-air. Infantry will still think it's better that even less capabilities. Get out of there fast. Shoot and scoot. Rearm. Resupply. Platoons and smaller. Smaller and more of, people and hardware, and more dispersed. Makes it harder for planes, to take out. Vietnam war. Less capabilities everywhere then. But some capabilities everywhere to. Like Intel gathering. Easier to defeat everywhere to, when engaged anywhere. Must for enemy to disperse to, I guess. If they can hit you back just as hard and fast. No clue really. Your enemy must disperse or concentrate to, I guess. Lots of satellites and drone coverage now, to in modern warfare. Put rounds on target. Jamming. Taking out the drones, etc. Point stuff at satellites. 1000 watt transmitters. 25 watts transmitters. Whatever. Bottleneck.

Watch for down-links to from sats. Frequencies used. Jam them all you can. %0% coverage. Means they have lot 50% capabilities. Forcing them to prioritize. Insight into what they are thinking, and hence planning, and hence stragedy. If it matters. Hitting back, is what gets it done to. Logistics problems, for them to. Transportation as you can see is part of logistics. Don't want to need roads. 500 trails to nowhere. That are everywhere. Never really taken militarily speaking. Never secure. Securing everywhere is massively expensive, in people, and hardware, and wealth. Great way to make money, if you can bleed, the general public, tax payer dry. Then it makes them hate the enemy even more. Dead family to.

Still can bomb your stock piles then.
