• Russian Atomic Aircraft Carrier RC Shark Attack Cheap Warship Toy Pool Fun

    Challenger Aircraft Carrier remote controlled warship toy review and Surprise Thomas The Tank ERTL's. Let's see if a White Pointer Killer Shark or Super Soaker water pistol can sink this cheap Atomic RC toy. This RC toy has been used, abused and neglected. It comes out every summer for a play in the pool. For a $25 remote control toy it's quite amazing not worth the full price before it was on sale. When I look inside you start to see what the build quality is like, it's cheap and cheerful. I'm not at all surprised the rechargeable batteries were playing up considering the age of the toy.

  • Atomic Flash High Speed Boat

    The Flash is a great handling boat and just a few seconds of full power will get her skipping on top of the water and awaiting your next command. The steering is direct and just a small input will give you a slight change of direction, the more input the tighter she will turn. After a few turns you will find Flash turn tight or with less steering input she will carry a lot more speed throughout the turn. After a very short time you should now have her under complete control and feel comfortable at the controls. If you do manage to turn too tight and Flash ends up upside down then a blip of power will have her upright and ready to go. Running time is about 9 minutes from a fully charged battery so why not get a spare battery and double your run time. Specifications: - 2.4G 2 channel pisto...

Anyway it has the toy review divert into a how to fix mode. This Russian warship is more like a speed boat, the battery life between charge is around 20 mins. The Challenger Aircraft Carrier has enough detailing to say what it is with helicopters, jet fighters, guns and things that are seen on warships. But those who are into scale model ships will be disappointed. There was also a Destroyer warship available in this series of RC ships. I do laugh when I read warnings THIS IS NOT A TOY, one wonders what it is if it's not a toy! I'm not sure if this warship is a real ship in the Russian Navy, I'm sure my clever audience will connect all the dots. To me it's a toy grade RC ship or should I say speedboat! Electric sport boats are the most common type of boat amongst casual hobbyists. Hobby-quality boat speed generally start at around 20 mph and go up from there, and can be just as fast or faster than their internal-combustion counterparts, with the latest in lithium polymer and brushless motor technology. Ready-to-run speedboats from AquaCraft, ProBoat and OffshoreElectrics can reach speeds over 40 mph out of the box and with modifications can reach well into the 50-60 mph range. These types of boats are referred to as "hobby grade" and can be found only at hobby shops and retailers. "Toy grade" boats which are obtained through mass consumer retailers, are generally much slower and their maximum speeds are usually less than 15 mph.

The concept was revolutionary for naval warfare when first proposed, as it meant that these vessels did not need to stop for fuel like their conventional counterparts, being limited only by crew endurance and supplies. Nuclear-powered aircraft carriers The United States Navy has by far the most nuclear powered aircraft carriers, with 11 in service. France's latest aircraft carrier, the R91 Charles de Gaulle, is nuclear powered. The United Kingdom rejected nuclear power early in the development of its Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carriers on cost grounds, as even several decades of fuel use costs less than a nuclear reactor. As currently envisaged, France's new aircraft carrier could be nuclear-powered or conventionally powered. Nuclear-powered submarines The United States Navy operates the largest fleet of nuclear submarines. Only the United States Navy, the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom, and France's Marine Nationale field an all-nuclear submarine force. By 1989, there were over 400 nuclear-powered submarines operational or being built. Some 250 of these submarines have now been scrapped and some on order cancelled, due to weapons reduction programs. Russia and the United States had over one hundred each, with the United Kingdom and France fewer than twenty each and China six. The Indian Navy launched their first indigenous Arihant class nuclear-powered submarines on 26 July 2009. India is also reported to be leasing two additional nuclear submarines from Russia. Nuclear-powered submarines can stay submerged for up to 400 days if the vessel is fully loaded. Other nuclear-powered vessels The United States no longer has nuclear cruisers. Russia has four Kirov-class battlecruisers, though only one is active, the other three being laid up. The Soviet command ship SSV-33 Ural, based on the Kirov class, is also laid up. Seven civilian nuclear icebreakers remain in service: four of six Arktika class icebreakers, Taymyr, Vaygach, and the LASH carrier and container ship Sevmorput. The United States Navy The U.S. Navy has accumulated over 5,400 "reactor years" of accident-free experience, and operates more than 80 nuclear-powered ships... Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, (1900--1986), of the United States Navy, known as "father of the nuclear navy" was an electrical engineer by training, and was the primary architect who implemented this daring concept... Soon after World War II, Rickover was assigned to the Bureau of Ships in September 1947 and received training in nuclear power at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. In February 1949 he received an assignment to the Division of Reactor Development, U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and then assumed control of the United States Navy's effort as Director of the Naval Reactors Branch in the Bureau of Ships. This dual role allowed him to lead the efforts to develop the world's first nuclear-powered submarine, USS Nautilus (SSN 571), which was launched in 1954. As Vice Admiral, from 1958, for three decades Rickover exercised tight control over the ships... Leading nuclear physicist Philip Abelson (1913--2004) turned his attention under the guidance of Ross Gunn to applying nuclear power to naval propulsion... At the present time, many important vessels in the United States Navy are powered by naval reactors. All submarines and aircraft carriers are nuclear powered... United States naval reactors are given three-character designations consisting of a letter representing the ship type the reactor is designed for, a consecutive generation number, and a letter indicating the reactor's designer.

It was conducted between Operation Teapot and Operation Redwing on May 14, 1955, about 500 miles southwest of San Diego, California. 6,800 personnel aboard 30 ships were involved in Wigwam. The purpose of Wigwam was to determine the vulnerability of submarines to deeply-detonated nuclear weapons, and to evaluate the feasibility of using such weapons in a combat situation. The task force commander, Admiral John Sylvester, was embarked on the task force flagship USS Mount McKinley (AGC-7). The test device was suspended by a 2,000 feet (660 meters) cable under a barge. A six-mile tow line connected a fleet tug, the Tawasa, and the shot barge itself. Suspended from the tow lines of other tugs were three miniature unmanned submarines named "Squaws", each packed with cameras and telemetry instruments. The time of detonation was 1300 hrs Pacific Time. The test was carried out without incident, and radiation effects were negligible. The device yielded 30 kilotons. Only three personnel received doses of over 0.5 rems... http://www.dtra.mil/documents/ntpr/factsheets/Wigwam.pdf Operation WIGWAM was a deep underwater nuclear test conducted as part of the 1945-1962 United States series of atmospheric nuclear tests. It took place in May 1955 in the Pacific Ocean approximately 500 miles southwest of San Diego, California, under the joint administration of the Atomic Energy Commission and the Department of Defense (DoD). The purpose of the operation was to determine the radiation and pressure phenomenology associated with nuclear detonations at great depths and to ascertain the effects such explosions would have on submerged and surface vessels. Approximately 6,800 personnel and 30 ships took part in this operation under the Commander, Joint Task Force Seven. A single, 30-kiloton nuclear device was suspended by cable from a towed unmanned barge to a depth of 2,000 feet in water that was 16,000 feet deep. Located at varying distances along the approximately six-mile (30,000 feet) long towline between this barge and the fleet tug, USS TAWASA (ATF-92), were a variety of pressure-measuring instruments, unmanned and specially prepared submerged submarine-like hulls (called squaws) as well as instrumented and also unmanned surface boats. The ships and personnel conducting the test were positioned five miles upwind from the surface detonation point with the exception of USS GEORGE EASTMAN (YAG-39) and USS GRANVILLE S. HALL (YAG-40). These two extensively reconfigured ships, equipped with special radiological shielding, were stationed five miles downwind of the surface detonation point. With all the ships at their assigned stations and all personnel accounted for, the device was detonated at 1 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on May 14, 1955. WIGWAM resulted in three sources of radiological contamination: airborne activity, residual fallout and water contamination. During the first three seconds after the detonation, the radioactive debris was primarily contained within an initial bubble formed by the interaction of thermal energy with the water. Then, beginning at approximately H + 10 seconds (ten seconds after the detonation) these gaseous products began to reach the water surface, forming spikes and plumes reaching maximum heights of 900 to 1,450 feet and emerging from an area roughly 3,100 feet in diameter. As the plumes fell back into the water, a large cloud of mist was formed. This was the base surge, which at H + 90 seconds had a radius of 4,600 feet and a maximum height of 1,900 feet. The visible surge persisted to H + 4 minutes. At H + 13 minutes, a foam ring appeared with a 10,400 foot diameter. The area within this ring probably approximated the extent of the contaminated water. While the surface water initially showed significant contamination levels, the water dispersed and radiation decayed rapidly, so that by May 18 the maximum radiation reading found over an 80 square mile area was on the order of one milliroentgen per hour (mR/hr) at 3 feet above the surface.
