  For a better assesment, I tried using a phonecord to connect 2 lbs worth of shoes to a 1 ounce plastic keychain.

Using the keychain as the "tank", and the much larger, more-massive pair of shoes as ...

  Can I atleast lose the little purple dude?
Whether or not you believe what I'm telling you, I did go and discuss this with a physicist before posting about lift, so I am making an effort to discuss t ...

  Fost, I just tried it. Swung a necklace over my head, and lo and behold, I did not go airborne as the necklace jerked back towards the earth.

If you diagram this out, the force pulling upwards on t ...

  Actually, lift is very relevant, if you've tested the 6 cricket ball cluster on the ground against the single cricket ball, you'd see that.

Otherwise, if this application of that fact was true, it ...

  Hm. After looking up more weights and measurements, the T-55 is on the low end of the "heavy" tanks(some "light" assault tanks weigh as little as 8 tons), and the F-14 is on the high end of the "heavy ...

  I'm not saying the "anchor" is infinite, I simply used the word "anchor" so that I don't have to keep generating new letters. We could substitute A, B, and C if you'd like.

The point is, an object ...

  Okay, just think about this a second:

Scenario 1: A force, P, is travelling along an x axis. We suddenly anchor it on a parallel x axis. The anchor begins generating force in the y direction as P ...

  I'm suspecting that you're attempting to apply an impact force similar to the jet slamming directly into the tank, in which case, it would be enough to move it atleast a few feet into the air. However ...

  Okay, Fost, you didn't get it:

If we attatched our tank to the space shuttle as it was launching, that's the kind of force we'd get. You need a 10 story(153 foot long!) engine to pull off the 1 sec ...

  Nope, I did, [url=http://www.moonpod.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=646&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15]here!

You'll just start calling them "Gopher tanks" anyway, so what's the point?

  Actually, I mentioned digging tanks first, I made up the acronym first, and my acronym for "M.O.L.E." describes none other than: a digging tank. A mole is an animal that digs, so you don't even get cr ...

  Fost: I didn't?

Er, the point was: You wouldn't get lifted off the ground. You wouldn't even get dragged too terribly far. You'd jerk a little as the cable hit max length, and the aircraft would ...

  Also, I'm the one that introduced the concept of subterranean warfare to begin with, so I thought it up, and the Acronym too.

And I've said before that I'd preffer tanks to infantry, but aircraft t ...
