Donkeys were probably first domesticated by pastoral people in Nubia

Still perfectly serviceable, they just dont want to spend the money to modernize it properly or just build a new generation airframe, they keep chasing consolidation of the fleet to a single type not realizing they are cucking themselves in the long run with properly rounded net capability. its a good plane, has its problems, keep it near an F15 and its golden.

Why a heavy lift seaplane in 2022? Is this for dropping off shit for the marines on islands in the Indo-Pacific without an airfield/ seaport?

Long term program probably. AC-130 float was investigated to see if a quick-fix was possible, and looking into the Japanese sea-plane for a COTS solution reflect the same urgency. The fact that a DARPA program was launched indicates to me that an easy quick-fix was not identified.

Probably because tube+wing is just a lot easier/cheaper to manufacture than lifting wing bodies or whatever other exotic planform

>>53696408
Its not a shit idea, you just don't know what you're talking about. As I explained earlier, this is a more refined WIG concept targeted for the Pacific war. I can see it doing a lot to overcome the limitations imposed by vulnerable, fixed-megabases (think Guam)

>Probably because tube+wing is just a lot easier/cheaper to manufacture than lifting wing bodies or whatever other exotic planform
Honestly probably a hell of a lot more stable on takeoff and landing too. Realistically, probably a hell of a lot more stable when just bobbing around. Two big as hell "floats" means no fears of yawing too hard or getting pushed in a weird way in rougher conditions and burying a wing and half your props in a wave or something,

So many U-Boats were sent on very long distance missions all the way around Africa and into the Indian Ocean, but all that distance they often traveled alone. Assuming that along the way there would be countless Allied ships on patrol, how would the U-Boats receive updates along the way of threats along their route and take measures to avoid them?
How did a U-Boat communicate with the outside world?

>>53696275
>How did a U-Boat communicate with the outside world?
With fire.

>>53696275
They used encrypted radio signals that were decoded with the Enigma machine.

>>53696334
Wouldn't they be easy to locate this way?
>>
>>53696389
Why do you think they had a higher loss rate than the Kamikaze squadrons? Being a Uboat Sailor was a death sentence.
>>53696275
If they were close enough for their long wave radio sets to communicate with Germany, they did that. If they weren't, they were on their own. They knew more about threats than Home Base did anyways.
>>
>>53696389
Only if they were reporting out, which they did more often than they should have. Still in 1940 it was hard to triangulate always.

Even if it's a flatter blade, I'm thinking something like the Elmslie type 1a, mentioned earlier on, or one of the Dussacks in the second or third pics you posted. There's enough extra material, blade thickness non-withstanding, that it would definitely add weight. Another thing to consider is the Geibig type 14 blade, which has a relatively thick spine that could add enough weight blade-side to draw the point of balance away from the hilt. I'm not ignorant of the fact that adding more weight to counter other weight will just end up with a heavy piece of shit though.
I do agree that a hollow pommel would be a good way to get around the weight collecting around the hilt too much. I think that decreasing its size would achieve this better, while simultaneously getting around the tendency of those sorts of pommels to dig into your wrist/palm, if held improperly. I initially thought it might not be something to worry about since the way one grips schiavonas tends to line your hand up in a similar position to a properly gripped lobed hilt but I did some practical testing and it just wouldn't be possible. I honestly think that decreasing the size of the pommel would the the way to go here. You don't have to mangle the aesthetics of it while solving the issues it brings to the table.
As a last little remark, if you shrink it to the right size then it should slot nicely into a basket like the second example you provided, making for peak aesthetics imo.

I mean the only alternative to that is ukraine just giving up and letting itself be raped and murdered, so there's not much of a choice for them
