if you had a rocket with some kind of c02 warhead could that put out a fire?
Or start a new one when it crashes?
Not if the warhead is ejected onto the fire and the booster burns itself out.
Just wondering if such an idea would work though or a C02 bomb
CO2 grenades were already done a long time ago:
Those used carbon tetrachloride.
Then why can't we do that now with large fires that are happening right now?
That tank thing looks like it came right out of Thunderbirds
The problem with the tank thing - too limited in area of effect. The method most commonly used with large fires is "fire bombing":
While this helps, it's a very dangerous method (massive updraft from the hot air produced by the fire) and there never seem to be enough of the aircraft - or skilled/crazy pilots available.
If Poe Dameron were real he'd do it.
There are quite a few pilots daring enough to try but, not all in the same place and the same time!
Oz could use a bunch of them right now...
It is not without risk
The Russians love their jet seaplanes
That looks kind of cool...... I love their idea of building stuff. The Ekranoplane is very cool.
The "Caspian Sea Monster"...
That's the one, its very big, and very cool. But not efficient.
They even had something to carry a version of it:
Look at their semi submerged icebreaker concept.
Huge rocket videos
I love that the Russians just don't say "you can't do that" and just plan to build stuff regardless.
Apparently, the word "impossible" has no equivalent in Russian...
Sometimes, they really need to consider adding that word though!
I love it.... Biplane tank Why not?
That time Russia decided that everyone everywhere for all time had been wrong and warships should be circular.
I used to have a book on historical ships and that one got a mention.
