After a small investment in some dark tan and dark orange bricks, Chinchilla Heavy Industries decided to build a tank. Then we changed our minds.
THE shot, necessary on all Vic-Vipers.
Let's get some of the spacecraft fellows to explain this hunk of angry carbon fiber.
Left Guy: "Stop gritting your teeth like that! We're on camera blast it!"
Right Guy: "I paid good money to get these puppies whitened, so I'm showin' 'em off!!"
Left Guy: "Your face is behind a yellow screen anyway!"
Right Guy: "maybe if you had invested in some WHITE screens...."
Meanwhile, I found a sane fellow to help us out.
Sane fellow: "Hullo. Right now I'm cleaning out the TV's cold air intakes. They only cool the TV when it returns to the ground, in space the TV actually needs to keep warm so the vents are closed. The TV outputs a relatively large amount of heat and emissions, just to stay at a warm enough temperature in the vacuum of space."
Sane Fellow: "Here we see the infamous 12 engines, which can put out over 2.3 Mega Newtons of thrust for extended periods of time. 3.4 Mega Newtons for only a few seconds if you really need the power. You won't though." =)
Sane Fellow: "The cabin is snug to say the least, most pilots can't fly the TV because they don't fit, not because they lack skill."
Sane Fellow: "Here we see the Plasma lasers. They send out plamsa which quickly solidifies over 6 times a second. Large canisters in the forward prongs house over 120 gallons of compressed plasma."
Sane fellow: "One of the most interesting features of the TV is the ability to drop the rear wings. This ability also allows the TV to be escape VV classification by the Chinchillean Empire, meaning there are no fuel consumption or emission regulations."
Sane Fellow: " I guess that councludes my tours. Laterz!"
