does anyone hear about Casper S.2 ?.

http://www.histaviation.com/Caspar-Werke_AG.html

Here is a full Info about it;

Quote
Developed by Heinkel 1922, still working for the Caspar-Werken, the S II differed from the S I : The engine was mounted on a steelframe, not directly to the fuselage. A firewall protected the fuselage. The S II was used by the Swedish Navy as S 3 and later designed HE 2 by Heinkel

Take a look at the tanks that have been lost in urban combat, there are enough youtube etc videos.

Planes still get shot down.  Does that mean they're useless too?

Morre's "Building for Victory" is a stand alone book which covers the construction plans and programmes of the British Navy just prior to and through to the end of the Second World War. "Rebuilding the Royal Navy" is the last part of the DK Brown series which runs through a series of four volumes "Warrior to Dreadnought", "Building the Grand Fleet", "Nelson to Vanguard", and of course "Rebuilding the Royal Navy". There is a further book by Brown "Before the Ironclad", which I believe was not part of the original set, but dove-tails nicely as a first part of the "series".

... a step by step plan to get off the planet and eventually out into the galaxy. I'm sure those in the know can argue some of the science he presents but broadly the theme is we better do this or humanity it at risk.

Strictly speaking that's not accurate. If humanity doesn't spread out into space, it's not 'at risk," it's "outright doomed." Same goes for bunnies and carrots and humpack whales... and for American/Chinese/Lithuanian/Whatever culture.

If we cannot get something like a warp drive system installed on a spacecraft then the best that we can do would be to design a so called Worldship that would take humanity to the stars at sub light speed otherwise humanity is finished.
