    i'll have you know we kept the 40mm/L60 in service until '92 m8.

    And Gepards were placed in storage, not dismantled.

    Also latest plans are to introduce a motorized version of MANTIS.

    Clearly you haven't seen much tubes in your time.

    >60s radar
    >modern
    strong strawman scenes m8

    tubes went out because they are humongous, not because they are less reliable (much more in fact if considering ECM and EMP)

    "updated in the 70s!!!1!!!"

    Or are we talking about export model valves here?

    We are talking about a land-based radar that doesn't have to track anything beyond 20km. Look up Tunguska if you want.

    I know what a fucking tunguska is ye shite talking dafty. You asked why tubes are bad. I told you why they're bad. But now they're great. Except they're not great they're only great in 60s kit. But that 60s kit isn't bad because it was updated in the 70s.

    How about you just stop talking shite.

    Traveling wave tubes are still pretty awesome. Much higher power handling capability for a given amount of cooling than transistor amplifiers (at high frequency, of course). As are photomultiplier tubes. Lower noise than PIN diodes, higher gain. Too big for use in commercial fiber optics and such, but great for scientific instruments. Magnetron tubes aren't getting replaced any time soon (the microwave emitter in every microwave oven) and X-ray tubes are still the best way to generate low to medium power X-rays used for medical imaging and cancer treatment. There are a few other specialized tube types that get used.

    They're also great for convincing certain people to spend unreasonably large amounts of money on audio amplifiers using them.

    Also there is some research into using really tiny vacuum tubes for really high frequency / high power operations (nanoscale vacuum-channel transistors) but those are purely prototypes at this time.

    Not enough pictures.



    PACIFIC OCEAN (June 4, 2018) An AH-1 Cobra assigned to the 'Sea Elks' of Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 166 (Reinforced) takes off from the flight deck of Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Essex (LHD 2) during composite training unit exercise (COMPTUEX). COMPTUEX is the final pre-deployment exercise that certifies the combined Essex Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) and 13th Marine Expeditionary Unitās (MEU) abilities to conduct military operations at sea and project power ashore during their upcoming deployment in summer of 2018.

    WATERS SOUTH OF JAPAN (June 4, 2018) Sailors assigned to supply department receive pallets on the flight deck of the Navy's forward-deployed aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), during a replenishment at sea with the Military Sealift Command dry cargo and ammunition Ship USNS Charles Drew (T-AKE 10). Ronald Reagan, the flagship of Carrier Strike Group 5, provides a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interests of its allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region.

    PACIFIC OCEAN (May 31, 2018) Sailors assigned to San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock USS Anchorage (LPD 23), signal an AH ā 1Z Viper helicopter, attached to Marine Light Attack Helicopter detachment of Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 166, on the flight deck during composite training unit exercise (COMPTUEX). COMPTUEX is the final pre-deployment exercise which certifies the combined Essex Amphibious Ready Group and the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unitās abilities to conduct military operations at sea and project power ashore during their upcoming deployment in summer of 2018.

    shit works for half a century as intended but it's bad because it was made half a century ago, got it
