    Could ferrofluids become potential ammunition for EM guns by the premise of shooting a stream at extreme velocity that it would act as a very long solid penetrator?

    Probably not... It might be useful as a space based weapon in a vacuum, but in the atmosphere it would need to travel through the air which would act on its tip and likely lead to it spreading out reducing its penetration performance. Over a few metres it might be effective, but over 100s or 1000s of metres it would likely spread out and decelerate too much to be effective...

    I saw most of this things on internet. So the big question: could we have a fusion reactor just for creating materials? I mean instead of going into a iron mine or import the iron better would be to take simple mud and tronsform it into iron. This could be done at a industrial scale?

    The main focus of fusion reactors on earth is to generate electricity.... the current stumbling block being they use rather more power than they generate.

    Once the technology is perfected then in theory you could use it to create elements... starting with hydrogen atoms being fused to create hydrogen... if you have any atoms of any element you could load them in and fuse them with different elements, but the process is pretty chaotic... while some hydrogen atoms may not have fused yet there will be helium atoms that have fused with other helium atoms or hydrogen atoms to form lithium or Berylium... it would be very difficult if not impossible to create unified blocks of one material... as it will be in superheated form.

    In a star when the fusion process gets to iron the high conductivity of iron means it cools too fast and the fusion process stops... in a lab you could probably continue fusing but you would likely need to add rather more energy.

    I have a quick few questions....

    Does the T-14 use any ERA or is it all passive?

    and....

    Did any T-90 variants have an auto-tracking-target system?

    Without doubt T-14 roof armor has nice set or ERA Relikt, the frontal hull looks like it has basin ERA tiles similiar to previous models or maybe latter will recieve if it is not. The side skirts i could expect would be fitted with ERA because side armor is always very weak and needs massive protection and ERA is the best protection there is for its size and weight and money without outblowing budget or dimensions.


    The T-90MS has autotracking and autolockon.

    Look at the video it has image processing.

    Start from 05:13 min and you can see the FCS detects the windows and in IR channel it could autotrack and autolockon on targets.

    No matter how close is russia to syria. Russia has its own interests in the world despite the close relationship whit iran syria and so on. Ofcourse the countryes i mentioned respect each other include the culture of people. And that matters

    Ontopic:
    Every antenna even those used for search of aliens like seti can be used as a emp weapon. Instead receiving they just must emit electromagnetic waves and induce into a object a electric current because of induction law. That inducted current will shortcut the equipment. Basically almost every nation has couple of powerfull antennas that can emit. So almost everyone has a super weapon. I am wrong?

    Autotracking is part of the Fire Control System and is generally added to most Russian tanks when the control systems for the GLATGMs are added... often a beam riding channel, but sometimes a command guidance channel.

    So...basically most modern T-models would have it. I was wondering because a guy suggest the Japanese Type-90 was the first to equip such a system.

    The first tanks with such a system are T-90MS and T-90SA if i am not mistaken, not sure about Merkawa and Leclerc.

    Thanks for the answer, cause I wanted to ask similar one.
    There was someone saying that Russia moved away from ERA and T-14 is using advanced NERA blocks. Is that has any basis apart from guess? I think top of the turret should be covered by ERA, by the looks of it. It's hard to tell when them blocks are integrated in design

    Such stuff comes usually from NATO stronkkk crew that always came up with shit like ERA is only there because russia cant produce good armor so they compensate it with ERA. The T.15 has shown both ERA and looking at the armor tiles it is looking like NERA in a cast and side armor can not be protect with any kind of ammunition other than ERA to levels to withstand HEAT rounds not to mention APFSDS rounds where APS would be necessary or Nozh like ERA which destroyes almost all penetrative capability of APFSDS because it cuts it in nice pieces.

    http://btvt.narod.ru/4/noz/noz.htm

    This is what an APFSDS looks like hitting Nozh.




    And Nozh since it is nothing else but HEAT vs APFSDS HEAT wins, it reduces the energy of the penetrator by 90%.

    Question: can be maked an electric making sistem by using an arc of energy like in tesla coils? I think to a sistem where tesla coils are near a container heat him and vaporize water. Or some like neon where electricity passes from a side to other heat up a gase to near plasma temperature and heats water. A middle row of magnets would prevent the gas to touch sides. Maibe whith something that rejects plasma the plasma could heat sides but not touch

    You could simply use a tube inside him plasma and around eleftromagnets that prevent plasma for touching sides .....but the electromagnets would heat up. Maibe whit a short tube and powerfull electromagnets on the two ends and water around sides. Thus the sides of tube would have direct connection whit water and the electromagnets would shapen plasma. This would deliver enough heat to water for vaporising at the low cost of money.

    well yes, but it is crude.

    Probably the best know is using Coal with explosives to create raw low quality diamonds for tools.

    So...basically most modern T-models would have it. I was wondering because a guy suggest the Japanese Type-90 was the first to equip such a system.

    Actually the first vehicles with auto trackers were probably TOR, but T series tanks with Svir and later missiles had autotrackers.

    I seem to remember mid to late models of Merkava having autotrackers too.

    Obviously the Shkval of the Ka-50 and Shkval-M of the Su-25TM also had optical auto trackers too.

    Point is for making metal or something else from an abundend (a lot existing material) material do not require to be best quality. For making a chair or furniture you need only cheap low quality metal. After all the consumer would not break a cheap iron chair for see how resistant is. Other quality metals can be used for army or something important. Imagine a factory where 30 tons of metal are maked each day from 300 tons pressure applyied.
