SRT Viper for 2013

Don't you just hat a tease?

Few details are known about the new Viper, but it is expected to be a more sophisticated car than its predecessor and rumored to feature a number of electronic aids including traction control, adjustable dampers and cruise control. It is likely to be powered by an updated version of the old car’s 600 hp V10 engine, possibly with more power and better fuel economy.

Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II

The F-35 is descended from the X-35, the product of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. JSF development is being principally funded by the United States, with the United Kingdom and other partner governments providing additional funding. The partner nations are either NATO members or close U.S. allies. It is being designed and built by an aerospace industry team led by Lockheed Martin. The F-35 took its first flight on 15 December 2006. Wikipedia


The new weapon of choice?

According to Wikipediarailgun is an electrically-powered artillery gun that accelerates a conductive projectile along magnetic metal rails using the same principles as the homopolar motor. Railguns use (two) sliding or rolling contacts that permit a large electric current to pass through the projectile. This current interacts with the strong magnetic fields generated by the rails and this accelerates the projectile. Particular characteristics are the lack of propellant (only the projectile and the electrical energy to launch it are required), and the ability to launch projectiles much faster than firearms-based technology allows.

America's Quintessential Muscle Car

Ok, so I came across on Jalopnik, go see full story..
What is America? Powerful, individualistic, innovative, sometimes brash, not overly concerned with dated formalities. We're the country that invented blue jeans and electric guitars and the airplane. And if we want to stick a blockbuster turbocharged V-6 in an upright Buick two-door sedan and paint the whole thing a sinister sort of black, that's the way we do things. The Grand National never turned all that well, didn't cost a lot new, and wears its outcast attitude and exotic-slaying capability as birthright. It's even named after a NASCAR series. It can only be American, it is intensely American, and God bless it for that.
