BingoBoingo: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-17#1929384 << Note that global state of the art in this area has fallen from Warthog to Super Tucano. Much as the SR-71 and concorde are gone, the Warthog has been out of print for a while. Maybe the Chicoms make a flying tank at some point, but the art has fallen from flying tank to flying toyota Hilux
asciilifeform: 'warthog' is old-style machine, and much closer to onoda's rifle than to 'f35', from this angle

mircea_popescu: i doubt it was anywhere near any biz, seeing how the warthog withdrawal happened prior.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the warthog got withdrawn. ~for lack of that fab~.
asciilifeform: ( yep they have a private 2uM fab going. is why the old 'warthog' still flies, and other 'vhs'-era tech )

mircea_popescu: !#s warthog
asciilifeform: warthog is actually gone nao ?
mircea_popescu: also the chopper not being a plane, it can tolerate a lot more than the warthog could.
asciilifeform: firing, e.g., luger, from a toy chopper, is roughly similar to the notion of firing 'big bertha' from a 'warthog'.
mircea_popescu: hey, warthog does manage to fire those "girl you'd fuck" sized bullets...
ben_vulpes: still trying to get the hang of the m1a1, very much adrift in the cockpit of a warthog.
BingoBoingo: F-35 is replace warthog
BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> is this one of the birds nominally intended to replace the warthog? << Compliment warthog.

mircea_popescu: mats not just the thunderbolt. same story with the warthog. idea being basically "we wish to move on from this real-items tethered system of bezzle to a system of pure bezzle. we do not wish to have any further actual items involved in the entire allocation and expenditure of budgets thing"
mircea_popescu: speaking of heavy howitzers : a move reminescent of the dumping of the warthog is the army cancellation of crusader paladin upgrade / any nlsc weapon at all. leaving the paladin, a 1960s make, as the pretty much only us howitzer for the rest of history.
BingoBoingo: * asciilifeform will fly to conf3 on a pig, if this happens << The Fairchild "WartHog"???
