• where did that come from?

    Me spending about 10 minutes searching threads on stuff I read over the last few days and then using google to clarify. That is my impression of the supposed "kill list" based on people in the intel community posting about it and what I found after some searches based on what I read. I fully agree it was dumb for some Uke officials to act that way towards Elon given how much he has supported UA. really dumb. But the idea of him being on some "kill list" sure looks massively over exaggerated and my suspicion of the source I was able to confirm.

    I don't want him to have it, because it'd be bots with flamethrowers. His little T. Bleach white motherfucker. But I do believe he has money. Not enough to buy the peace bird.

    He's getting cold feet.

  • There are many of these stories daily from areas the Ukes liberated. This is one of the reasons I support their right to defend themselves.

    Elderly Ukrainian woman in a recently liberated area tells the story of how Russian soldiers shot her son in her house and how he heard him call on her for help twice before dying.

  • The buffs are getting Rolls Royce F-130s. Neato.

    Jebus. Took them long enough. I've been hearing about those plans since the mid 90's. Neato indeed.


    Boeing Gears Up to Replace B-52 Engines

    ORLANDO, Fla. — Boeing is racing against the clock to replace the engines of all 76 of the Air Force’s B-52 Stratofortress long-range bombers.

    Last fall, the Air Force selected the F130 engine made by Rolls-Royce North America for the B-52 Commercial Engine Replacement Program, or CERP. Under the $2.6 billion contract, Rolls-Royce will equip the B-52 fleet with eight engines each by September 2038, replacing the bomber’s aging Pratt & Whitney-made engines.

    Robert Gass, strategic development and investment manager at Boeing, told reporters during the Air Force Association’s annual Air Warfare Symposium in Orlando, Florida, that the life of the bomber’s current engine — the TF33 — is a pacing concern.

    “Pratt & Whitney made a great engine that has served the B-52 very well, but it is approaching the end of its life and we have to act now in order to keep the B-52 viable,” he said.

    With the F130 engine, Gass added, Boeing expects the B-52 to have an increased range and more endurance, as well as provide the Air Force with additional operational flexibility — especially in areas of the world with few U.S. bases.

    Digital engineering will help speed up the F130 engine’s integration into the B-52, Gass said. Using digital engineering, Boeing and Rolls-Royce have streamlined the new system’s design and created 3D models of the B-52 and its components in order to understand how each part works together, he said.

    “It’s very early in the program, but we have anecdotal evidence that we’re identifying disconnects and conflicts earlier than we would have otherwise,” Gass said.

    Candice Bineyard, director of Rolls-Royce Defense Programs, added digital engineering is being used to understand how the B-52’s new engine will remain sustainable through the 2050s, when the Air Force plans retire the aircraft.

    “In the event of small maintenance activities and things that will have to take place, we’re using our digital now and we’re starting to work through and visualize how we’ll create those maintenance manuals to better help those maintainers when we are into the production phase,” she said.

    At the same time, Gass noted the engine’s modernization will allow Boeing to upgrade the B-52’s subsystems so that it stays up to date until the 2050s. This includes electrical power generation, pneumatics, new structures for the engine pods, new cockpit displays and digital engine controls, he said.

    Rolls-Royce plans on conducting rapid prototype tests of the F130 engine later in 2022 at the Stennis Jet Engine Testing Center in Mississippi, Bineyard said.

    During the test, the team will “get an opportunity to understand exactly how that engine is going to operate as intended,” she said.
