# Around the World in Eighty Minutes (OOC)

## Recommended Posts

For Victory. Planes, apes, sabotage, etc etc.

Victory has 2 HP.

CLosed for now, message Jackgar Prime is you want to join its his bag!

I'm willing to have other people join if it's reasonable why they'd be there.

Also, can you make the date of it some time in early June? As of the last vignette (which took place on June 17th) Victory is MIA, and I haven't decided what date he makes his return yet.

Done!

Do you have an actual speed for the plane?

Do you have an actual speed for the plane?

Of Course, the speed of PLOT!!!!

Circumfurence of earth is 40,000km, about 25,000 miles

Lets say we want to do that in about an hour, so 25,000mph!

So the plane's going at 25,000 mph? or are you actually trying to get it to literally go around the world in eight minutes? For comparison, Victory can go at 500,000 mph at his normal speed, and the math works out to him being able to go around the world in.....

Holy cow....

3 minutes.

Well, he is pretty fast!

By the way, I completely mis spelt the title of the thread. I meant it to be around the world in Eighty minutes, as a tribute to Jules Verne Around the world in eighty days (And lets face it going around the world in an aircraft in eighty minutes is still damn fast!).

Its Eighty minutes for this thread, and hence 25,000mph by my calculations.

Victory should be able to keep up!

That is still very quick. I was mostly just recording to see how fast it actually can go in relation to Victory. So at least he'll be able to stay there regardless of which speed.

Nice work. It would I think be pretty hard to spot anything. Impossible without analytical vision, but heck, with that I'll give you a shot. DC 25.

I realised a made a small but I hope non-important error and have made edit. The F-17 was flying my northerly, and rather than being off the coast of Africa, was off the passing over Iceland then Norway.

Didn't realize you were waiting for a roll!

Solid!

Victory can pick up minute fluctuations in the thermal signature of the engines due to his analytical vision. He is not expert enough to understand the specifics of the highly advanced craft function, but the engine's output is both a) diminished slightly and has altered in function some how.

There is no danger to the craft however. The engines output is only minutely different. If it was not for his extremely enhanced vision (able to pick up almost molecular differences) then nothing would have been picked up.

In addition, he can detect the craft is loosing altitude, again, minutely. A few centremeters.

The obvious question is thus: How heavy is it?

Well, 767 is 100 Tons, a tank 50 Tons.

Its somewhere in the middle, I would say 75 Tons.

75 Tons =

Push/Drag STR 55

[And no, I'm not going into finer gradations of Strength than that! ]

However, that is if the craft is not propelling itself. Resisting its thrusters may increase the effective weight, depending on the direction you are pushing it. (Fudging this slightly +5 STR for a perpenidcular movement, +10 STR for directly opposing it]

NB: Given Victories Background, a fair INT, and his analytical vision, he can certainly give a reasonable estimate of the crafts weight, if not absolutely precise. Feel free to say he has studied the basic parameters of the F-17 as preparation if you wish (As an alternative) to know it weights around 75 Tons.
