Giganotosaurus vs. T. rex

Why we are talking about Spinosaurus vs T.rex on a Giganotosuarus vs T.rex thread I don't know. But, saying Spinosaurus is twice the size of T.rex seems a little generous. Average T.rex-41 feet long. 7-8 tons. Average Spinosaurus: Unknown due to lack of remains, an average estimate would put it at 53-55 feet long. 10-11 tons. Generous T.rex size(based off fragmentary remains): 45 feet long. 9-10 tons. Would be very slow. Gernerous Spinosaurus(Higher fragmentary estimates): 60-63 feet long. 14-15 tons. Would be even slower and more immobile.  (Aug 19, 2012 | post #5666)

Giganotosaurus vs. T. rex

Well alosaurus' arms weren't usabl against similar sized theropods either. Lack of a range of motion. All theropods suffer from this. The arms are against smaller prey that is well below the body. Arms may not have even had a major predatory usage for allosaurus either.  (Aug 19, 2012 | post #5656)

Bunny Rabbit's Troll Thread

Now, now Coprolite, I know you and BR don't get along, but come now. I've found the only decent ways to handle trolls is to try and talk to the sensibly or completely ignore them. Insulting them only either further aggitates them or upright amuses them.  (Jul 18, 2012 | post #9)

Much improved yes, but still autoloaders are yet to because as reliable as manual loaders.  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #40)

Um, the J-7 is if anything a variant of the MiG-21, not the MiG-29.  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #30)

How do they load, because if I am not mistaken, they need manual loading which is far more dangerous on a tank like the T-90. Anyway, the missiles gve the T-90s an advantage in an open range, but loses its efectiveness in tighter, urban combat. Another use for the T-90s misile capability is its anti-aircraft uses, which is a major interest to the Russians who are starting to fall behind in the air-power race.  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #29)

The Type-10 and Type 90 of Japan are some of the most technologically advanced tanks out there. They also have pretty good battle armour and a main cannon comparable to the Abrams in power and advancements and it has a relatively stable gun platform. The Chinese Type-99 is China's most advanced MBT, and is slightly faster, it sport the 125mm cannon which is bigger, but generally doesn't have the round flexiblity of the 120mm used by the Type-10 and Type-90. The autoloader is likely based off Soviet designs and therefore more likely to jam or malfunction than the Type-10, as well as having a less stable gun platform.  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #26)

Even with equal crews the T-72 and even the T-90s don't quite measure up to the Abrams one on one. T-90 and T-72s have less stable firing platforms, the turrets turn slower, which means both slower and less accurate aiming generally. The Abrams fires better rounds, while not as big, plus the Abrams almost never jams, which is a problem for them T-72s surprisingly big, and even the T-90 to an extent. Also, 3 T-34 can't hold up due to signifigantly weaker armour and firepower, along with slower speed and even less accuracy and mobility than the T-72s and T-90s. Same goes for the T-55s, except it is more competable on a firepower and armor scale, though still lacking signifgantly.  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #24)
