Future rotorcraft hybrid propulsion system developed by the Finnish Army.

Utin jääkärirykm. @UtinJR

Kevään aikana 🇫🇮 #NH90-helikoptereihin integroidaan laite, joka mahdollistaa matkustajien kuntoharjoittelun lentokuljetusten aikana. Helikopterin järjestelmiin liitettynä laite tuottaa sähköä ja lisää matkalentonopeutta yli 400 kilometriin/tunti. Win-win!

In 1940, the Mahan-class destroyer USS Tucker (DD-374) hoisted improvised sails to stretch the fuel supply and help relieve monotony while cruising in the Pacific. The Tucker managed 3.4 knots under sail.

In WW2 an RN Corvette was re-directed all over - UK, Ceylon, East Africa, Ceylon then Sth Africa.  No wonder she ran out of fuel - had to make sails from her awnings & sail half way across the ocean to port.
