Couple different designs in progress.... 100-meter Cruiser and 60 meter shuttle.

Anyone know any good references for Ball-type weapon turrets? Something reasonably modern? Someone suggested that my Cruiser turrets are more Star Wars than Perry Rhodan, ie, hull mounted ball turrets... and I agree somewhat, it isn't old school Perry Rhodan as is. At least the ship type I am doing, spherical... just hard to find any decent references for ball-type turrets that could work, mechanically. I have some ideas, but will have to play with them.

Saw part of the last A-Team movie... they're going down in a Tank with 3 chutes deployed from the cargo pallet the Tank i secured to after their Cargo bird got waxed by a Reaper Drone.

The Lieutenant chasing them is trying to call off the Reapers and after losing one of the two Reapers the Army operators are open mouthed as the tank turret comes around and fires.

"What are trying to do, shoot down the Reaper?"

Deadpan, with the most awesome tone and timing, the Lieutenant, "No. They're trying to FLY the Tank." Couldn't stop chuckling.

As far as the Russians meddling in our election to get Trump elected, they had it easy. All they had to do was make sure Hillary Clinton was the Democratic candidate, and the election was Trumps.

Does that mean the Democrats secretly did everything they could to ensure Russia got what it wanted? Including torpedoing Bernie Sanders?
