Why dont we just...
One chinese hypersonic missile would sink it.
>gets caught in a mild storm
>top-heavy ultra pagoda snaps the fuck off and crushes the ship under the weight
>the toilets for all 3 million crew stop to work, mass panic ensues, everyone goes feral in the seas with no fast way out
Actually, this would make a good horror movie
I recall reading something about some techbros trying to buy a ship to create their bitcoin powered ancap paradise so I imagine someone trying to make a floating island and such a scenario taking place.
Surely this time they'll build it, right?
Sers you must immediately invest in RanjeshCoin. You will be rich when it moons and have sex with white women, but only if you invest in RanjeshCoin. Partnership with Microsoft, India and Vishnu confirmed, you must do your own research on that sers. Sincere apoligies for no picture of green frog Pepe The Frog, posting from different Internet Cafe. Only RanjeshCoin will make you rich like Elon musk.
I don't know if this is a shitpost or a real pajeet, good show.
Their ambitions weren't even remarkably close to this monstrosity. They tried to buy a 30 year old cruise ship and planned to have people follow along in their own boats so that you could come and go as you please.
They couldn't get the certifications and other stuff they needed to even go out at sea. Then again, I can't imagine what a budget, above water Rapture would be like.
For comparison, the largest cruise ship currently in existence
Yeah, I doubt they plan anything beyond scamming investors
>6 record breaking waterslides
what's excatly record breaking about them?
it's a surprise 😉
I don't understand why these pieces of shit are still legal
they pollute as much as a small city, fuck up whole ecosystems, give nothing but trouble for the locals and even before the chinkflu they were breeding ground for diseases
like just go to an actual zoo and waterpark
who are you gonna call? ocean police?
I would call some pirates on them
They "thrive" off Cruise revenue.
if they were to be set up on nuclear reactor power the pollution would not be half as bad. Running gigantic hulls like that on low grade fossil fuels is just pure decadence
>if they were to be set up on nuclear reactor power the pollution would not be half as bad.
Fuck why can't the USA retrofit an old nuclear carrier to be US merchant marine cruise ship
>steam catapult converted to launched roller coaster style 'plane' in the style of an old mustang along rails along side of ship
>convert to trimaran style with fuck-huge ama outriggers on sides to get additional deck space and stability, and windows, and waterslides
>decks for days
>historic as fuck
>plumbing and degeneracy only slightly higher than current cruise ships
Don't scrap the USS Enterprise bros, make it a commercial enterprise
>Don't scrap the USS Enterprise bros
>all the epic awe inspiring carriers of my youth are being turned into scrap
Feels bad man.
I unironically would enjoy and feel safer on an old converted carrier than a cruise ship.
Ironic that environmentalists are directly responsible for limiting nuclear.
>Ironic that "environmentalists" are directly responsible for limiting nuclear.
It's oil companies astro-turfing fake news.
Lern 2 conspiracy theory, its /k
But for real I am pretty fucking green but love me some nukes, as long as we use a breeder reactor style so we burn out all the wastes down to something with a short half life, cause otherwise the waste sucks to deal with.
i want to be used by a breeder
I imagine some wh40k horror shit of what a breeder would like kek, like the tit demon from berserk
We just need a cheap enough solution for blasting nuclear waste into a Solar orbit. I propose bringing back Sea Dragon
>We just need a cheap enough solution
Since we can bring back thing that didn't get past the drawing board, I propose bringing back an orbital ring system.
It annoy me to no end that people only know of the "space elevator" when a ring would
- be actually feasible as material go
- require less material on the first try
- have a less dangerous safe-mode
- be more practical since it can deserve all the equator, or more later.
>It's oil companies astro-turfing fake news.
It’s both sides, politically
PLAP PLAP PLAP PLAP PLAP PLAP PLAP MAKE POWER
It was much more than just hippies of the 60s-70s.
It was a lack of understanding the newer tech
It was as another anon put it misinfo from big oil
And most importantly it was Russians having the worst incident of that time to really spread the panic.
vatnik agitprop from that era specifically targeted nuclear as a way to undermine wests stable energy independence. This continued on into the russian "federation" period where the KGB ruling class just repurposed it to make westerners addicted to their cheap energy and fill their wallets
>And most importantly it was Russians having the worst incident of that time to really spread the panic.
tbf, we couldn't replicate Chernobyl if we wanted to because the Soviets used an entirely different type of reactor
I get where you're coming from but I don't want nuclear powered ships crewed by italians and third world retards wandering about the oceans unsupervised.
Bunker fuel is some nasty shit, I guess some has to buy it though.
>they pollute as much a small city
Don't these useless homosexualboats pollute more than all cars on the planet combined?
maybe not individually, but like the top 10 largest cruise ships
no, that's disinfo. pic related - note the SOx being used as a proxy for "pollution". that's key.
the original point was that big container ships produce more atmospheric sulphur than all cars combined, and so therefore environmentalists are dumb for caring about electric vehicles. it's an attempt to feed into the narrative that greenies are smelly hippies with unserious ideas who can be ignored - basically a sop to the superiority complex of rural and midwestern retards by telling that that liberal elites have lost their minds.
in reality it's true that the biggest container ships do produce more atmospheric sulphur than all combined, but it also doesn't matter. atmospheric sulphur isn't the problem causing climate change, it's carbon dioxide (mostly). and the biggest container ships produce nowhere near as much carbon dioxide as cars.
but the disinfo has worked, because here you guys are and you have no idea what point was even made and even less of an idea about the context around it. all you remember is "pollution from cars isn't the REAL problem" and so every time you see a greenie hippie telling you it is you will just tune them out, because you read somewhere that... and liberal elites have lost their minds...
this is the playbook that the fossil fuel industry has been using since the 1970s. literally. just wait until i tell you how nobody ever believed in global cooling, lmao. or how the idea of your individual climate footprint was actually a big oil invention - because if it's an INDIVIDUAL problem, we don't need government regulation...
it's all so tiresome.
Good. I support no government regulation in most things, cars and boats included.
that's a defensible position to hold and it leads to a world that nobody wants to live in.
I'd live in a world like that
Liberal elites know precisely what they're doing, and it has nothing to do with environment. And electric cars ARE a joke. The problem is city planning that makes cars mandatory. No one in their right mind would design their life in such a way that it would require many hours daily for JUST getting from home to work and back. But (specifically USA) cities are made in a way that long commuting to work or school is unavoidable. Design cities well enough and people will barely use cars, electric or other.
How the fuck can you produce as much smoke as 2000 cars and not make your guests feel like they're staying in a ashcan?
combined with if you're staying in one place the big engines aren't running and if you're moving you're leaving the smoke behind you.
B51 and a half
Icon of the Seas has Wärtsilä's new multifuel engines (LNG or diesel). Claimef 48% efficiency. Plus hydrogen fuel cells for onboard electrical system. And theyre experimenting with some new technology of creating an air barrier around the hull to reduce friction. Its not a lost cause
always makes me chuckle.
>longer than an aircraft carrier
Burgerbros... you can't fall behind like that
Had the pleasure of seeing her leave Turku for the maiden voyage.
how the fuck do these floating skyscrapers even leave the baltic sea
the bridges over the straits of denmark arent high enough right?
the kiel canal?
jesos thats a shave
I thought that style of ramming bow was illegal because you couldn't see how far it protruded under the water?
God, i can feel the nonstop screaming kids and loud smelly boomers through my screen
Don't do cruises, just rent a townhouse somewhere for a week, better for your sanity
That's Gross Tonnage landlet.
Not impressive for an asteroid but still pretty big for a ship
Cruise ships should just euthanize every piece of shit subhuman who books a trip.
>"This year we we went to-"
No you fucking did not, you were sitting in a glorified floating hotel sipping shit ass drinks while doing the travel equivalent of watching tiktok videos.
Go to a real vacation you lazy homosexual fucks.
All the original people behind this proposition have to be dead by now, right? I literally first saw this back in 2001. I remember watching the old boomer who was pitching it to a small room of other old boomers talking about how it would require the total world's output of cement for one year and a bunch of other insane shit to actually build it.

Bongs eternally btfo
You need help, because it doesn't it's a battleship. This seething about bongs is unbecoming shitsniffer.
role: tactical dreadnought, minor capital ship
weapons: 45 909mm main railguns, 205 406 mm hull laser secondaries, 1206 99mm recoilless AAs
Here's some slop OP
PACS Yu Huang
role: hybrid mega carrier/LHD
weapons: 75 ionic cannons, 30 caseless 381 mm rapid fire auto turrets, 5 MAC 5 heavy bomber squadrons, 3 attack helicopter squadrons, 5 hydrogen/neodymium transport subs, 200 amphibious walkers
role: indipendent ship state
weapons: 303 hypersonic launchers, 180 HLPAS nuclear launchers, 11035 77mm flaks, quadruple quantic force field generator, 1.2 Teraton singularity warhead as self destructive device
The thing that frightens me about this images is that this is exactly how a human child would see the actual ships.
A broadside from that thing would make it barrel roll each time, sinking enemy fleets while also keeping the super carrier sparkly clean
>What was the prompt
Kuznetsov like imagined by Putin
Anon, your planes are fucking...
In Russia the planes fuck each other for morale and discipline purposes, it’s not gay like gachimuchi western planes
Needs shitty asphalt, run down Kamaz snow plows and potholes on runway.
is it really like that or are these pics edited to make it look worse than it is? because holy fuck this looks horrible even for russian standards KEK. No wonder they're taking a beating down there in Ukrolandia, if their most prestigious kit is like THAT, then god forbid the rest of their military...
I'm going to really enjoy the future where we can't actually tell what is real and what isn't.
A lot of people never could.

Wow, this AI is getting more and more realistic.
not a woman. pilots just have soft hands.
hilarious i also hate women
>Generates an actual David Clark headset with the correct color.
Even though the mic is on the wrong side, that is still fairly impressive attention to detail (other than the fact the the airplane is definitely not an F-15).
It’s a tank.
On the one hand this is ridiculous on its face.
On the other, I want to see live reactions from the first poor brown country we roll up with it.
AI was a mistake
Honestly, it make sci-fi movies about human resistance against AI war machines more realistic
Bigger is not necessarily better, we can outfit smaller battleships with flamethrowers to make the more effective in roles we cannot fathom as of yet. We learn as we fight.
For example, it could possibly be a formidable anti air platform.
I suppose it does kill the surrounding air
AA flamethrowers were tested in WW2
probably would have kicked ass in 1910, not so much these days
Imagine a bunch of those, flying german flags, blowing the shit out of british ships at Jutland.
Vgh, what could of been...

Fun fact: A loaded C-130 take off and landing distances are so small, it can do carrier landings without arrestor gear.
>“The last landing I participated in, we touched down about 150 feet from the end, stopped in 270 feet more and launched from that position, using what was left of the deck. We still had a couple hundred feet left when we lifted off. Admiral Brown was flabbergasted.”
c-130s are the most based aircraft in existence ``

Nah, we're skipping straight to helicarriers, broseph.
ship longitudinal strength.
google it. Beyond 400m in length overall, you are entering a world of pain.
Just need it balanced using balast, then you're all good.
Long vessels, such as ULCC and VLCC tankers have very few loading cases defined. For 30 years of economic life, the vessel is loaded with the same load configuration so the vessel doesn't break into pieces. There is absolutely zero flexibility because the vessel can be broken by a simple wrong ballast/deballasting operation.
for me, it's anzio
I like this kind of autism
guptism really does hit like nothing else
>Curses your path
Looks like a bastard child between Topol-M and Moskva.
Any particular reason not to do this irl?
It's basically what missile cruisers are. Just without the exaggerated looks. And if you're thinking of full size ICBMs - they can already reach anywhere on their own, so you need to move them only enough to avoid direct targeting.
put these bellow deck you have VLS cells
>virgin VLS cells
>vs chad phallic erector launcher
I bet you wouldn't make your missiles more pointy either...
>missile hits ship
>10k seamen dead
>less than 0.1% of total ship's area affected
>ship continues operating as if nothing happened
What if we...made our aircraft carriers submersible?
It's possible. But it will launch VTOL drones rather than a fighter.
just make the submarine big enough and you can have fighter runways
sorry we just accidentally your boat
Thanks to israeli sponsored welfare, we don't have the combined industrial capacity to build OR maintain one
>what if we made out boat....not a boat
Now, I know WHY we don't do this, because only water can handle something as heavy as these ships without it falling apart. But a man can dream.
Soulless AI shit
How has Pioneering Spirit not come yet? The actual largest ship ever made.
>fires all guns at once

Name it the USS economy
Because if you sink it
You sink the entire US economy
Be my guest.
Having conventional guns on a ship that huge and expensive is just stupid looking
