All this tucked away inside the Lawrence H. Gianella It was impresive beyond words. I will have my pictures of it developed and will post them in April.

That's nothing, if you were to convert the engine thrust of a C-5 Galaxy's jet engine to HP, it would equal to just over 78,000 HP!

Thumbs up

No pics of the Vans yet.

Yeah, a C-5 is cool, but it doesn't have a 12 foot diameter IHI turbo. It was like walking around in the engine bay of a turbocharged car...well, sorta.

Ha, that ain't nuthin! I've driven a vehicle with 30,000shp (shaft horsepower) and that's at under 200rpm. Now that's what I call torque, baby!!

Oh, the vehicle was a Los Angeles-class nuclear powered fast attack submarine. Two steam turbines feeding through reduction gears to drive a single shaft.

Call me nuts, but isn't the power output of our ships, uh, confidential info? I'm pretty sure you have to preceed power figures with "In excess of..." That 200rpm you were putting out with the sub was also shaft rpm, which is different than plant rpm. Forgetting about the reduction gears are we? Oh, by the way, my ship puts out "in excess of" 69,999 shp.

The engines I used to run had a big turbo. One of them was a twin turbo. Turbos being about 3' in diameter. It's a 16 cylinder twin turbo diesel. Running at 6000hp.

Hey guys, there is a Dodge Viper running around that maxed out the dyno charts. My friend told me about it as he was reading the viper forums. The max HP on the dyno chart was 1500 and he blew that thing away. The HP was still climing as it passed the mark, so god only knows how much that thing has. If you guys want I can ask him to find the forum for you.

*AMETEURS*

I work on the Space Shuttle, that has a combined 1.5 million pounds of thrust! And dont even get me talking about the Solid Rocket Boosters!!

Actually just for a bit of trivia, each engine on the back of the Shuttle has two Turbo pumps, that put out 63000 HP EACH!

If they could be pointed upward, it could shoot a stream of liquid hydrogen 36 MILES in the air..

Man I love my job..

Don't worry, Skirvdawg, I'm giving numbers available straight out of Jane's, so this ain't news to anyone. Unless, of course, the Russians haven't figured out how to read English yet.

And, uh, no, I didn't forget about the reduction gears. I specifically did not mention the reduction gears because the step up ratio of the gears could give the bad guys a gear rate tonal to look for. That's why I gave numbers for just the shaft, and explained that there are "two steam turbines feeding through reduction gears to drive a single shaft." The shaft puts out 30,000shafthp at under 200shaftrpm. How much under 200rpm? Well, that too would be useful in determining narrowband tonal information for possible counterdetection, so we'll just leave it at "under 200rpm".

So, I take it you're on one of them targets that floats on the top of the water, eh?

What about are nuclear subs and carriers. The rest of are suface ships run on gas turbine engines which are a derivative of the GE turbofan engine found on early Boeing 747s. It's a GE LM2500. It runs a generator which makes the power that runs the electric motors that turn the prop shafts. The LM2500 run up too 40,200 shaft/hp. 4 of these engines are what run the Spruance class destroyers and Ticondoroga class cruisers and the destroyer that got bombed in the Middle East

Pat,

Yes, I am a floating target. One day I was tasked to find the quiet ship bill for our class. Turns out my department head found a new version of a snipe hunt. "Hello, this is the Cheng, USS Wasp...you want a what? For this class ship? Hahahahahaha!"

Hahaha!! "Go get permission from the OOD you to blow the DCA." "Go down to auxiliary division and tell them you need a machinist punch." "Go get me some relative bearing grease to fix this motor." "We need to build a platform to put this equipment on. Go get me 50' of freeboard and 100' of waterline." etc etc etc.
