    Funny thing is they got it right in the photo caption.

  4. Saudi Arabia vs Iran thread.

    I'm of the opinion that Saudi Arabia and Iran are gonna throw down soon. The winds of war blow in that direction, with Saudi buying tons of weaponry, and lining up strategic partners. https://www.defencetalk.com/israel-ready-to-cooperate-with-saudi-arabia-to-face-iran-defence-chief-70829/ Just hoping the US stays out of it. Not worth getting involved, IMO.
  5. "Pigs" Have A Hard Job

    https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2017/11/14/mesquite-police-deny-misconduct-vehicle-break-call-ended-shooting I personally don't think this one passes the smell test for all of the allegations, but shooting a man for not being able to stop the alarm on his own truck doesn't say much for any de-escalation training. Forcible sodomy though? I don't think it's usual procedure to do cavity searches on scene?
  6. General Naval Warfare News/Technology thread.

    Oh shit. Argentina has lost contact with one of its submarines. http://www.janes.com/article/75782/argentina-loses-contact-with-one-of-its-submarines
  7. General news thread

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/sudbury/north-bay-moose-swims-1.4405248 North Bay closed traffic for a day due to a Moose wandering around and rubberneckers causing delays.
  8. Russia to renew Tu-160 Production?

    I think what's interesting to me, given some of the discussion we've had about the difficulty of engine production that they are doing an improved version of the NK-32.
  9. Aerospace and Ordnance discussion/news.

    So Syrian action as a marketing campaign looks to have worked well.
  10. Russia to renew Tu-160 Production?

    I heard that they were planning on getting 50+ more, so a full production restart. https://theaviationist.com/2017/11/16/russia-unveils-new-tu-160m2-strategic-super-bomber-update/ http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/16175/russia-rolls-out-new-tu-160m2-but-are-moscows-bomber-ambitions-realistic Apparently new versions of the NK-32 are being used as well, with a corresponding 600km range increase.
  11. General news thread

    One can hope. I seriously think one of the best outcomes in NK would be the Chinese backing and orchestrating a coup in NK, and then basically taking over.
  12. Hrm, looking more and more like Brin was right about the winds of war pointing at Iran.
