Land Cruiser "Venkoval"

38




Dear Joseph Vissarionovich!

I bring to your attention an invention that gives an exceptional opportunity to maneuver the energy resources of our country, allowing it to be quickly rebuilt from a peaceful to a military one and vice versa from a military to a peaceful one.

The invention allows wider use of tractors and locomotives in wartime, as well as the better use of the obsolete types of some tracked combat vehicles and old cars in peacetime.

Basically, I suggest the device shown below (Fig. 5). This is, on the one hand, a new species. weapons (Dot-all-terrain vehicle), and on the other hand, a new type of off-road transport (a locomotive, together with tractors, placed inside a large skating rink, will carry a train loaded with railway cars without a railway under the skating rink).

To clarify the principle of operation of the device, we consider the most simple version of it, shown in FIG. 1. Tractors constantly bump on the ribbed sloping inner wall of an armored ice rink. From this, the rink moves, destroying the enemy’s engineering structures. Inside the rink, an additional chamber with a horizontal floor can be placed on the rollers to accommodate the crew or paratroopers in it (see Fig. 2).

From the central or close to the holes (on the convex ends of the rink) you can fire and observe, placing in small chambers eccentrically suspended from the inside of the end cover of the rink (see fig.3). The periscope is inserted into the curved axis of the suspension. The direction of movement of the roller can be straightened by a slight change in the working diameter on one side of the roller (for example, as indicated in Fig. 4) by throwing the ballast closer to one of the shaft ends. In the event of an excessive unwinding of the roller, the drivers raise the engines, pulling them over the inner ribs of the roller closer to the central shaft. In order to avoid overturning of the engines at a low speed of the roller, the latter are switched off automatically (by a liquid level).

The desire to increase the weight of the engines leads us to the main option (Fig. 5). All payloads, such as wagons, are eccentrically mounted on gigantic roller bearings. This load is pushed closer to the front of the rink by several heterogeneous engines (for example: a steam locomotive, an old aircraft engine, a tractor or unsuitable for military operations a tank).

Figures and considerations illustrating the reality and effectiveness of the invention:

a) the rollers will not be torn by centrifugal force at practically possible speeds of their movement, determined by the engine power, traction force and track slopes. We find the maximum allowable speed of the roller from cast iron equal to 108 km per hour (see the calculation of flywheels in the technical encyclopedia "Enlightenment", vol. VI, p. 309);

b) the shafts should not be stuck in pits that are much smaller in vertical dimensions. The rolling shaft has considerable inertia (manpower), so it will tend to cling to the edge of the obstacle, climb it, be it at least a wall inclined towards it and having a height less than half the diameter. It is desirable to generally move at an angle to the pit. For pre-spinning (necessary when driving on very rough terrain), it is possible to use a special goat (Fig. 6), which can accompany the shaft from the back during its subsequent (after spinning) forward movement;

c) the net volume of the roller, equal to approximately 30-60-ton cars, is obtained with the following roller sizes: diameter - 30 m, length - 60 m;

d) For better workability of the roller it is possible to put a cover on it (see fig. 7);

e) a large amount of iron for such a land armadillo is not necessary. It can be made of wood, strapped hoops of iron or steel.

Other variants of the invention.

The proposed new method of moving “bodies of revolution” in a straight line by means of the immutable displacement of the center of gravity of the body by the prisoners inside its mechanisms opens the following possible uses for its use:
1) Icebreaker.
2) Lesoval (treading glades on flat areas).
3) Fire device.
4) Machine for the construction of irrigation canals (Fig. 8).
5) Engine for raising targeted.
6) Ukatchik deep snow on the ground.
7) Giant mine or torpedo.
8) Minesweeper for land and sea mines.
9) An underwater or surface container for marine paratroopers (will crawl out to shore through trapezoidal longitudinal projections).
10) Some hollow armored cores (without engines), prepared for the future, can be used as hangars and as storage for finished products or raw materials, as well as shelters from fragments.
11) And finally - a new type of aircraft heavier than air, suitable for high-altitude flights, is obtained (see Fig. 9), if an extremely lightweight roller is suspended on the axis between the wings (above the cabin) and installed inside this roller (with large outer blades) propeller aircraft engine under normal atmospheric (inside the rink) pressure, producing a center of gravity force displacement similar to ground rollers. It is hard to say how necessary the device is for streamlining the roller. Usually, near the ceiling, the propeller thrust becomes weaker and the efficiency of the motor is made small due to a decrease in pressure. In the new type of apparatus, the motor should not reduce the efficiency. Other applications of the new method of movement (combination of rollers) are also possible, but the apparatus becomes complicated because of the immensity of the scales, even for our country.

Немного stories.

In my invention, of course, not everything is new! During the time of slave labor, large wooden barrels of the “squirrel wheel” type were made, which rotated in place by the force of slaves stepping inside them. The new thing is that the rink is rolling, and not only unwinds on the spot and that mechanical force is used, not animals or people.

Historically, a series of: lats! tank! rink! Armor gradually thickens, the number of vulnerable moving parts decreases. This is understandable: otherwise it would be too expensive to armor a unit of volume with armor. Therefore, the appearance of the rink is more natural than the appearance of the fascist armored battleship. No wonder they "covered" them.

Conclusion.

1) I consider Metrostroy to be the most suitable organization for the initial sale of samples.

2) I consider the name “VENKOVAL” the most appropriate name for my invention - not only because of natural ambition, but also because the word “Venko” means “victory” in some languages ​​(for example, in Esperanto). It is remarkable that I invented this rink (Fig. 1) at the moment when I heard on the radio about the results of your remarkable next victory. Although, it is true, I had thought many times before how to make the tracks of our tanks invulnerable.
3) If you find it appropriate for me to continue calculations for my invention, then please order me to send modern technical reference books. I really need them, as they are not available in local libraries.

I inform about myself some information. In the past I am a graduate of an orphanage. Now I have the title of engineer captain. I am a teacher in the Bryansk Military Polytechnic School, which is now moving from the city of Khalturin to the city of Kharkov.

        Of course, it’s a bit blasphemous and cynical to apply this quote to this article, because people most likely sincerely wanted to help the country.

      DEAR JOSEPH Vissarionovich!

      Wanting to defeat the hated German fascism and its army as soon as possible, the recommended invention - KARAR - is an armored light jumping machine. Constructive, tactical and combat features of Karara are as follows.
      DESIGN: Steel ball-shaped tower, reinforced on six legs. The legs are the undercarriage, receiving movement from the motor located in the turret. Moving Karara occurs by jumping from 5 to 20 meters. The jump comes from the work of the motor. Its power is transmitted to the supporting legs through the clutch A and the connecting rod B. The connecting rod, resting on the head of the upper part of the foot, throws the body of Karar forward in the desired direction. Two connecting rods rest simultaneously on two adjacent legs. At the time of the jump the other four legs are selected. Before jumping in the desired direction, the tower turns. The rotation is carried out by the motor. There are six sectors in total.
      Managed by Karar by one person sitting inside a tower in a swivel chair. The driver is also a shooter. The height of Karara to 3 meters, the diameter of the tower to 1,5 meters. Six support and mobility of Carara legs, shaped like a six-pointed star with a diameter of up to 3,5 meters.
      All Karara designs are made of lightweight strong alloys, thereby achieving a total light weight, contributing to the speed of movement and ease of jumping. Separate details and a general view of Karar, see the attached diagram. I don’t have the opportunity to provide detailed drawings, since the idea of ​​creating Karar originated in a combat situation, where there is no opportunity to get advice for technical calculations and design drawings. It would be advisable to work with an experienced design engineer. This machine can be presented in drawings and models in a short time. According to my calculations, manufacturing Karara in the factory is very cheap. Motor for Karara requires low power, consuming fuel a little more than the motor of a motorcycle. The design feature of Karar is the quick interchangeability of any node
      Please consider my proposal and give an answer. In the event my personal attendance is required, my address is: Borovichi, 73 / 4 mailbox, cadet Alexander Korneyev.

    And so I roll down the slope, and on top of me is this flask. Full of water, by the way. A terrible sight, I will tell you!
    a similar thing happened in one and the same part in Nikolayev’s family in 1987. two fighters were sent to fuels and lubricants for a barrel of oil to be replaced during RTO. The GSM operator was not in place, one fighter was left to wait, and the second fell off somewhere. A fuel and lubricant worker appeared, poured oil, but the fighter alone could not drag the barrel onto the cart and did not think of anything better than to roll this barrel on asphalt. The slope in this section was significant, along the road were located: the fuel and lubricants point itself, a sink, a technical maintenance station, an open parking lot, after which the road rested on a two-story anti-aircraft defense system. When the barrel gained speed and the soldier realized that he would not be able to stop it, he tried to change its trajectory, catching up and hitting the right edge of the barrel so that it would go left onto the lawn.
    At this moment I left the VET building, I hear a roar from behind the building, then a barrel flies out, and a fighter periodically catches up with it, and it also kicks up. The sight is surreal. Once again, he apparently kicks the barrel too high, his leg, and then the soldier flies behind the barrel, falls, the barrel jumps and rolls over it. My back is sweating (well, all the corpse), and the soldier jumps up and again behind the barrel. I run up to him (the barrel still stopped on the lawn) I ask where it hurts, I feel it, my head is without abrasions, there are no traces, she answers, her ass hurts a little! Apparently the barrel jumped on the ass and flew overhead without hitting it. But the bruise on his ass was then solid.
