Doomsday Bunker Upgrade - Chapter 692
If it were in the past, the military would definitely not consider the issue of close combat.
Mankind has been out of the cold weapon era for hundreds of years, and melee combat in wars has been decades ago. With the development of science and technology, mankind has become more and more away from face-to-face combat in wars, but out of sight. Blow.
Even in a close range of sight, using weapons such as firearms and artillery is enough to kill the enemy when they are approaching.
In the past, the military used a pistol to solve this problem. Soldiers were equipped with an assault rifle as their main weapon to fight. When the enemy came close to the front, they used the pistol to fight at close range.
After all, in modern warfare, no one would equip ordinary soldiers with body armor or armor and other protective equipment. The penetrating power of a pistol is enough to kill the enemy in front of him.
However, as the battle between humans and alien creatures unfolds, small-caliber weapons are basically scratching the alien creatures, and they can’t even break the skin and become useless.
The result of this is the overwhelming disadvantage of humans in the close combat between humans and aliens.
Although humans can still kill alien creatures at close range by relying on large-caliber weapons, ordinary soldiers are simply unable to resist once the alien creatures attack humans.
The jetpack previously developed by Chen Xin solved some of the above problems, giving ordinary soldiers at least one chance to regain their distance in close combat.
But this is only a temporary cure, not a permanent cure.
This is especially true for large vehicles like Titan, after all, it is impossible for Titan to fly.
Even if Chen Xin can do it, cost is still a big problem. With the technology and resources to make Titan fly, doing something else can change the situation of the battle.
So Titan must consider the issue of close combat.
In the past, the general-purpose Titan was easy to say in this respect. Adding a bayonet to the equipped weapon, or simply bringing a cold weapon like Chen Xin’s Bailong, can solve the problem of close combat.
Even though these bayonets and cold weapons were to act as a self-defense and would not die so miserably, they did solve the problem to a certain extent.
At least, in the event of an emergency, you can draw a knife to kill you, instead of killing your neck.
However, the new model of Titan has to face this problem. Removing the arms and replacing them with weapons does save a lot of resources, reduces unnecessary structures, and makes maintenance and production much easier.
But in the same way, without the ability to grasp both hands, there is no way to equip melee weapons.
If it was before, this problem could be solved by the accompanying infantry. Anyway, the tanks are coordinated, the tanks are coordinated, and the Titans are also coordinated.
But now… if an alien creature breaks through to the front, the Titans can’t stop the offensive, and ordinary soldiers can only be regarded as an addition, and it will not play a big role.
Of course, Chen Xin had prepared and considered this point a long time ago, and signaled to the staff on the side that after receiving Chen Xin’s signal, they pushed out the melee weapons specially prepared for the new model of Titan.
It is a large chain saw that matches the size of the Titan.
“When designing the new model of Titan, I also considered the need to replace weapons to cope with different tasks. Therefore, the arms of the new model of Titan are pluggable. When you need to replace it, you only need to pull out the original installed weapon. When you come down, you can change into new weapons.” While instructing the staff to replace the weapons of the test body, Chen Xin explained to the dumbfounded military representative: “This is also for the convenience of logistical maintenance. If the weapon is broken If the body is still intact, you can regain combat effectiveness by replacing weapons.
The melee problem you are worried about is also simple. You only need to replace one of your hands with a melee weapon to solve this problem.
But generally I This is still not recommended, because doing so will result in weakened firepower.
Of course this is just a suggestion. How to configure the weapons is a matter for your military, so I won’t be too much trouble. “
What did Academician Chen say!” The design of the new model Titan is already very good. Thanks to Academician Chen, we can have such new equipment! “The military representative said to Chen Xin a sincere compliment, but at the same time he did not forget to ask: “Academician Chen, what are the production costs and working hours of the new model of Titan? How long will it take to adjust if the existing production line is converted?” What changes should be made in the process? “
These are the real key issues. Whether a piece of equipment is easy to use, it depends on whether it is large enough to be used, and no matter how easy it is, only one or two pieces can be built, unless it is a nuclear bomb. If you solve the problem, it will be useless.
“Please rest assured that the production cost of the new model Titan is one-third less than that of the general-purpose model. The parts adopt a more concise design, which is easier to produce, and the technical threshold is also corresponding. A lot is reduced, and more factories can be used to produce these parts. “Chen Xin brought military representatives to the side of the new Titan, and continued to introduce: “Because of the simplified structure and the modular design, maintenance has also become much simpler.
If there are enough parts, in the rear maintenance station, even if it only depends on manpower, it can be assembled with spare parts in one day. “
Can you put together parts in the repair station?” “The military representative was completely shocked. Although he understood from Chen Xin’s introduction that the structure of the new Titan is simple and easy to maintain, he never thought that it could reach this level.
This is like someone telling you that there is enough. Parts, it’s like a car can be assembled for you in a car repair shop, which is beyond the scope of normal imagination.
“In theory, it is possible, but under normal circumstances, key parts such as the engine and the main engine Such things will not be spared at the repair station, and the damage of these parts still has to be returned to the repair shop in the rear to be repaired. “Chen Xin explained to the military representative.
Although the modular design makes maintenance easier, it is obviously impossible for Chen Xin to say that all the battlefield repair stations in front can be assembled with a Titan.
After all, even if he reduces the production difficulty and cost of the parts, the key core parts are still quite sophisticated, and it is impossible to put them in the front repair station for simple maintenance on the battlefield.
Military representatives can also understand this kind of thing. After all, the simple battlefield repair station in front is only used to maintain and repair some minor defects. It is impossible to say that it can really play a role in overhaul. In that case, the maintenance cost of the repair station It’s too high.
