      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  1. Sorry! I really have misunderstood you! Thanks for the explanation! B.R. Serge
  2. I didn't know that Airfix GR.5 there two noses! And in what a difference between an early nose of GR.5 and a late nose of GR.5? Discussion was long ago therefore to be exact I should re-read all 10 pages of a branch about construction of that Harrier again. The colleague Kelly Johnson very carefully approaches questions as the geometrical accuracy of a prototype and its detailing in what you can will be convinced having looked at his ended building of F-94B: and the building of F3D Skyknight which is conducted now: If I am not brought by memory that is about remeasured nozzles and therefore about increased more than it is necessary their fairing. But my memory can bring me therefore let's me find it in a branch. B.R. Serge P.S. By the way, I have Hasegava Harrier GR.5 and GR.7 (Revell a re-box) together with aftermarket (including GR.5 nose from Quickboost) and also Harrier GR.7/9 from Airfix. If you accept comparative filming from the mobile phone that I can make them later certain time.
  3. I not absolutely understand sense of purchase of the whole model of the Harrier GR5 from Airfix to saw off to him a nose cone when there is just separate nose cone from Quickboost: And I don't share delights from new Harrier GR7/9 Airfix! As this building shows: there are a lot of problems... B.R. Serge
  4. And where here Warsaw Pact? 🤔The continuous domination of the western promotion and pop culture which is decomposing and ideologically harmfully influencing participants of a grupbild from the Warsaw Pact! 😆Where the leader of the Communist Party Britmodeller looks?🤔😆 In total most it is necessary to do! 😆😎Listen companions to the Soviet songs of the 70th years: 1.Georgy Sviridov. Time Forward 2.Samotsvety. My address is Soviet Union. 3.L.Leschenko. And Lenin So young! modern cover version from SILENZIUM 4..L.Leschenko. Victory Day .....and some pop music and lyric: A.Petrov.OST from Autumn marathon A.Petrov.OST from Office romance. : modern version DJ GRUV: V.Dashkevich. Sherlook Holmes Overture from TV film G.Gladkov. OST from Gentlemen of Fortune Anna German. Hope. translate: Аctually there is a lot of songs and compositions, but I have noted only what it is possible to call the best hits which listen and now. B.R. Serge
  5. I don't know, but as on me, a nose wheel Swift 7 (above) differs from a nose wheel Swift FR5 (below). Or it is optical illusion and my imagination? B.R. Serge
  6. Hi, all! In what a difference on fine details between the Swift Mk.7 and the Swift FR. 5? It seemed to me that on some photos a nose wheel the Swift Mk.7 is more than a nose wheel at the Swift FR.5. Whether so it? What else small distinctions on fine details between the Swift Mk.7 and the Swift FR. 5? B.R. Serge

  8. Article on Аirwar is based on the publication Evgeny Arsenyev. "First jet MiG" in the "Aircraft and Time" magazine. which has been published much later than Belyakov's book. Evgeny Arsenyev very long worked both at the experimental design bureau MiG and in his archives by preparation of this specialized article. The general reference book of Belyakov, in fact repeats what has been written at Shavrov V. B. "History of designs of planes in the USSR 1938-1950". Naturally in 2000 Arsenyev had fuller access to archives what at Shavrov in 1960, besides he has more narrowly targeted subject a single question, than the book of broad subject of Shavrov allowing to investigate more more carefully. Speaking about coloring of I-250, I think it is possible to say that there were identical tendencies with La-150. Planes of early. constructions could be painted by two layers of AMT-11 or one layer of its analog for metal coverings A-33m. Planes of late construction most likely were the same color as well as MiG-9 namely A-36m. Alexander Akanikhin, the producer and the owner AKAN claims that still AMT-16 paint close on color to A-36m could be applied. В.R. Serge
  9. "Operational with the Baltic fleet" it city legends, because: The documents confirming drive of the I-250 fighters of a pilot batch to front parts of Aircraft of the Navy till this day aren't revealed. It is thought that it wasn't at all, at least, it indirectly confirm other documents. We will remember that the E-30-20 power plant had all a 35-hour resource in addition differed in a big buket ╩ shortcomings. Also we will remember complexity of operation it and the plane in general Therefore it isn't necessary to speak about lack of problems with planes of a pilot batch in Aircraft of the Navy. If they were in front parts, then in the item of expenditure of manufacturers of the plane and the power plant there would be records about deliveries to the Navy of the new engines and compressors, spare parts and units for replacement which left an operation, assistance to seamen in development and repair of materiel. However those in annual reports of the plants ╧╧ 155, 381, 26 and 466 are absent. Besides, at the plant ╧466, at least, till 1949 were and unclaimed four E-30-20 power plants are Also not present also correspondence of the Navy with MAP on these questions. Therefore if the I-250 planes also got to Aircraft of the Navy, then only to teaching departments as visual aids. Also any documents in which the fighter would call MiG-13 aren't revealed. Throughout all the short biography it passed in orders, reports, reports, plans, acts, etc. as a product ╚Н ╩, I-250, MiG with VRD and the VK-107P or MiG motor with TsIAM VK-107R and VRDK, or in the form of other variations on the same subject, including MiG-3 with VRD. The only thing about what can be govonit as about front operation, so it is preparation for an air parade November 7, 1946. On I-250 involved the 176th Guards Proskurovsky's crews of the Orders of Suvorov and Alexander of the Nevsky destructive aviaregiment of the 324th air defense destructive aviadivision deployed in Tyoply Stan in flights. The air parade wasn't held on November 7, 1946 because of bad weather. It is necessary to tell, as - 250 not the best responses the Commander of group deserved at front pilots the isthmus P.F.Chupikov noted that it as an interceptor of I-250 can't be used in view of the considerable take-off weight (3680 kg) and an undercapacity of the piston motor (1650 h.p. which on rotation of the compressor about 300 h.p. left) as when flying generally on one VK-107P engine, the speed of the plane was insufficient. Summary. He also didn't suit the Air Force and was transferred to manufacturer for completions, only after which it was tried to be pushed aircraft of the fleet. B.R. Serge
  10. Only one place where can use it! Here it: 😆😆😆 B.R. Serge P.S. 😆😆😆

  12. Judging by a photo, on rockets the following inscriptions, the top picture are put: Kh-35UE ( russian X-35УЭ)- Export version of Kh-35U, in production lower picture: Kh-35ME ( russian X-35МЭ) where letters: U ( russian -У) - upgrade (улучшеная) or unified (унифицированная) E ( russian -Э) - export (экспортная) M ( russian -M) - modified (модифицированная) or a target ( мишень) B.R.

  13. If I also joked, then only in the quote from the movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger "Red heat". What ridiculous you the Sir have found for the rest? Well, let's consider written by me on points! Problems. at pilots-fighters with cardiovascular system? What happens to cardiovascular system of the pilot under the influence of short-term overloads in flight is described in these articles: Violation of functions of cardiovascular system at impact on a human body of shock overloads. The given materials demonstrate that intensive shock overloads in the direction a breast back exert considerable reflex impact on a functional condition of cardiovascular system of a human body. It is shown directly after influence, and first of all in the form of short-term malfunction of automatism and excitability of heart. Resistance of the person to accelerations and criteria of her assessment Thus, influence of overloads causes frequency change and forces of warm abbreviations, shock and minute burst of heart, leads to change of arterial and venous pressure, general and regionarny speed of a blood-groove, creates the expressed redistribution of the circulating blood and causes a number of physiological shifts Influence of space on cardiovascular system. Aviation influences on heart and vessels. Under the influence of various aviation and space factors (overloads, breath under elevated pressure, a hypodynamia, etc.) at the person sokratitelny function of a myocardium is broken, the vascular tone decreases, regulation of the approved action of the heart and vessels falls apart, it is resistant and long efficiency of blood circulation decreases. Data on influence of overloads on the pilot's organism during the long time didn't come across to me, but it is possible to assume that the short-term overloads tested by the pilot's organism during the long time (10-15 years) lead to adverse changes of cardiovascular system in general. You will challenge the statements written above or agree with them? Next. Need of the strengthened food in the conditions of low temperatures? On the Internet and there are answers. Here for example article "The COLD ENVIRONMENT AND WORK in COLD" quote: Diet and water balance In many cases work in cold conditions belongs to power-intensive types of activity of the person. Besides, protection against cold requires clothes and the equipment, the weighing several kilograms. The clothes constraining movements promote development of muscular effort. Therefore, statement of new work assignments requires more energy (more time) in the conditions of extremely low temperatures. It is possible to compensate deficit only by means of certain products. Workers need to recommend increase in consumption of foodstuff with the increased fat content. The food delivered to the north shall contain enough energy. It is necessary to provide enough carbohydrates to guarantee the stable and safe level of sugar in blood of the workers occupie hard work. Kayak, the Eskimos, Nenets, the Yakuts and so on? Part 9. Features of catering services in the conditions of autonomous existence in various klimato-geographical zones Source: Food in the conditions of autonomous expeditions and emergencies Editor and originator Luchansky Grigory Moscow, FGUNPP of Aerogeologiya, 2005 quote: Delivery of indigenous people of Far North is characterized by high content in a ration of protein and animal fats at the expense of widely used meat and fish products, sometimes in the raw. High caloric content of a ration, prevalence of an albuminous and fatty component are combined with a disadvantage of vitamins, osteogenic mineral components and trace substances. In interrelation with these indicators there are a little enlarged body weight, almost total absence of asthenic type of a body build, appreciable specific gravity of persons of muscular type in population. By the way, how long you personally the Sir were affected by low temperatures on the organism? My organism was affected by temperature of-10.-17 degrees Celsius recently, in January-February of this year. Feature of climatic conditions of Donetsk are "damp" frosts when the combination of the increased humidity and rather small frost is transferred by an organism worse than lower temperatures with the lowered humidity! That is-20 degrees Celsius at the increased humidity in Donetsk are equal-40 degrees Celsius of a dry frost somewhere in Siberia. In the Polar region frosts reach-50 degrees Celsius and above. And so, these two weeks of frosts I didn't want, something to do out of the room at all, but it is in my opinion natural reaction of any organism, to climb there where more warmly and to wait there bad weather! But whether I at the same time led a mobile life? No! The pilot on the plane is how mobile? Not how! He sits many hours attached by belts, has a stress and the overloads which are badly influencing cardiovascular system. Add to it need of food with the high content of fats because of low temperatures the environment also imagine as if you looked the Sir in such situation? What is shown to Hollywood movies very strongly differs from the real life. B.R. Serge
  14. You won't read new "books" about Limpopo conflict: - ex- top secret: - for expirience modeller's😆: - special operations : B.R. Serge
  15. 😆 Barents Sea warm, salty Atlantic water temperature >3 °C, from the North Atlantic drift, cold Arctic water temperature <0 °C, from the north, and warm, but not very salty coastal water temperature >3 °C, salinity. At water temperature from 0 to 3 degrees Celsius at most how many it is possible to live in it without special suit it to half of hour if strongly lucky, and in principle minutes 15. Get into this situation someone from unsubscribed in a topic, he would pray on a saving set of "MSK-5" allowing to survive afloat at T of water of 0 °C, nervousness of the sea to 5 points and T of air to -15 °C - not less than 12 hours! The high overloads tested in flight lead use of anti-overload suits to many problems including in work of cardiovascular system that in turn creates prerequisites to the excess weight of a body. It is also necessary to note that these people bear military service in the conditions of negative air temperatures around a polar circle. In such conditions any organism begins to accumulate fatty inventories in order that it is better to transfer negative temperatures. It is well visible on indigenous people zhiaushchy in the north, a the Kayak, the Eskimos, Nenets, the Yakuts and so on. Besides, apparently on pictures, the age of pilots is strongly more senior than 30 years, and in my opinion after 30 years health in an organism already begins to begin to decline. And real life very strongly differs from the movie that Hollywood maked. B.R. Serge
