We already have sections on Equipment and Personalities, but prehaps the current Third Reich section should be divided into a Third Reich and a Military section.

It has been discussed before and prehaps it is now time to made the change. What do the rest of you think?


As you know I believe we should have a section for discussing the various campaign's of the Third Reich and her Allies, and I'd be happy to offer moderating assistance. As for the other sections, Madcap has a nice idea with

'The Arsenal of the Third Reich'.


I guess the ultimate problem with these ideas is that one can not study the Third Reich without taking into accounts the other nations of the world, whether through straight comparison or interaction.

Not exactly. The SR-71 has a Scramjet engine with a turbine/compressor for low speeds and for takeoff. The V-1 had a pulsejet engine, not a true ramjet. I'll post some more info. on the pulsejet as soon as I have some time.

The "ramjet" on the SR-71 is actually a combination between a turbojet(which runs up to 2500 km/h) and an over-sized afterburner which acts as a ramjet(or Scramjet) over this value. With turbojet engines only, the prototypes could fly just to Mach 1.6

The pulse-jet works via a valve-like air intake which opens and closes rythmically as pressure builds up and forces pulses of air compressed by the aircraft's speed inside the engine, where it's mixed with fuel and ignited. The typical sound of a pulse-jet sounds like a two-stroke engined motorcycle in full thrust.
