    Stormfågeln RIP

    What is the positva intention to link to this project which was closed down long ago?

    It was because it did not work as intended. Look carefully at their own data. With such efforts, the results are not particularly impressive. Most of it was just clever marketing to get uninformed to invest capital. The company went bankrupt after several years of heavy losses.

    Is there a previous discussion on Stormfågeln?

    The bankruptcy coincided with the 2008 global financial crisis when many ventures shut down.

    Thank you for the stress analysis PDF. That the mechanism requires strengthening for the analyzed 68 knot speed draws attention to its complexity. I also agree the top speed is not stunning for the horsepower on the prototype. I remind myself it was only a prototype.

    Was there any previous discussion that outlined tested performance in more detail?
