Am I the only one who ever thinks about countering g-forces by allowing a pilot to be submersed in liquid instead with neutral boyancy. This would completely eliminate passing out from g-forces at any acceleration factor.

Though of course it would be complicated so I understand why it isnt done. You would need a complicated system to maintain pressure in the tank so it wont fluctuate quickly. But since g-forces are usually transient if done correctly decompression might not be a big issue


@freemo at a point you would have the same problem tho, right? A much higher point, but still. That would be a cool experiment, I wonder how much you could increase before same result? 5x? I will let you take care of the funding :ablobcool:
