Its obviously down to their mid-fi choice in audio interconnects, I also hear that they dont use silver based solder in the analogue sections of the comms..

Actually I think they do. In the Navy at least a lot of wiring was teflon coated silver wire. I assume that if you use silver wire (Aerospace industry as well?) They'll use silver solder...

I doubt tank mechanic experienced 10G. Jets/spacecrafts realities way too different form what we get used here on solid Earth.

janneman explanation of the topic is clear and correct.

Not argueing about your post. Just that when the tank fires a round. The electronics probably get a very brief kick that is a lot harder than 10G I think.

Not trying to argue with anyone here, I see this thread as created for entertainment purposes, limited verified facts. Can't have an argument without facts.

I don't believe in cables compared to using other passive components to achieve heavy band-pass-filtering.

Anyway... did NASA fire new satellites or are they still using the old ones from Richard Nixon era?

This gives you an idea of what is still good, what is now bad and of course the ugly too, satellite version. Ping!

Actually Russia has more than double the dysfunctional satellites than the US, more total functional & dysfunctional than US also.

Or so they'd like us to think.

What if it actually wasn't the USA that won the Star Wars program?

Perhaps the audio sounds bad because there's a lot going on up there.
