but a lot of the problem from what I've observed, is guys with engineering degrees saying "Sure, you can make it do that!" without knowing what 'that' really is.

What the engineers are saying is true. We can pretty much do anything, the real questions are how much time, money and resources do you have to make it happen?

I've actually watched the young guys from the contractors get gray hair and age like presidents dealing with the shifting demands from the management.  poor kids, make more than me, but they're putting the hours in on nightmare mode.

Yep, I do not miss being a consultant one bit.

we're still (amazingly) on schedule for test flights. Take that, 787!!!

That is an awesome picture and great news  :thumbsup: I must admit I am a big fan of evolutionary design development over revolutionary design development.

Yeah, I just glued one leg to the hip(eyeballing the angle), and once that was dry, I glued the other ones on one at a time ago that their feet were all flat. Once the legs are done, the rest is easy.

Did the CCS Korvix surrender.
I don't think the FS will willingly give up Tikonov, too great a prize.
Strategic Combat / Re: Factory Output

You also have variance when looking at the different factories/companies themselves.  We know that Corean Enterprises was able to maintain a production rate of 130 Valkyries a year from their automated factory on New Avalon throughout the Succession Wars era.  Defiance Industries also began producing the Valkyrie in 3025 but at a considerably slower rate that never grew to match Corean's efforts given some random bits of fluff text.  However, Defiance was able to produce more Mechs overall as their factories had far more lines producing different Mechs than Corean so not producing the same number of a specific mech didn't seem to bother them.
The Inner Sphere / Re: Operation Scorpion when did Focht find out
« Last post by Tyrchon on Today at 20:19:44 »
In Lost Destiny we get a chapter(42) at the end of the Battle of Tukayyid where Focht and Ulric Kerensky discuss the results of the battle.  During this discussion Ulric brings up Operation Scorpion, calling it "an annoyance" that did not distract from the battle.  In reply Focht remarks "I give you my word, had I known, I would have warned you."  Given Focht's nature, detesting underhanded methods and knowledge that acting in good faith with the Clans was the only way he could get them to agree to the Battle of Tukayyid and the Truce of Tukayyid, we can accept, with reason, that he is being honest with Ulric on the matter.  As such, if we had to guess on when he learned the details of and the launching of Operation Scorpion it would most likely have been at some point during the battle, most likely at a point where he couldn't do anything about it and trying to do anything about it would undermine what was happening on Tukayyid.

I really like it!

The beta was pretty awesome so I'll be having trouble waiting until Tuesday for it to actually go live.  Though I do wish they had let us test out a few more things in beta, like the Mechlab.

Anyone catch today's episode.

Very impressed with how they managed to do an episode about coping with your parents' divorce without ever once mentioning or even hinting at divorce.
Nah.  Ludicrous speed.
I've gone to plaid.
