It would be interesting to know if they could do outside of the PRC. If so, until Apple fixes it, they're toast.

No, it's not impossible. But it does require a lot of people, time and resources to build and maintain. Which ultimately boils down to political commitment . For a lot of EM stuff stateside, the politicians want it done now and cheap, or have processes that make getting it done in the time necessar...

If you need ship based artillery fast, could you take some M777s, put them on the flight deck of amphib and start shooting?

Is there a battleship equivalent of Godwin's Law, i.e., that sooner or later, any discussion about returning the Iowa Class to service will inevitably turn towards thinking about replacing the steam propulsion plant with a nuclear one? There is now. We'll call it Scott's Law. It would probably be c...
