    Bash the F-35 thred.

    http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/the-f-35-cant-beat-the-plane-its-replacing-in-a-dogfigh-1714712248 With the advancing of IRST tech and the proliferation of steath tech, I don't think dogfighting is going away anytime soon.

    General news thread

    My initial reaction from the age and aggressiveness of the animal is it's a young male wanderer looking for a territory. Possibly injured.

    General news thread

    Sometimes Humans aren't the top of the food chain in the short term. somewhat scary when it happens.

    General news thread

    I'm kinda not really on Zuk's side here, but I will say let's keep arguments factual and try our best to dial back on the emotional parts.

    Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    At least it's not an AR-15.
  6. Thread for naval warfare technology and general naval weapons and ships discussion. "Keel laying ceremony of Borei-A-class nuclear submarine Emperor Alexander III is will take place in Severodvinsk on December 18." http://mil.today/2015/Navy7/

    The Crossout thread.

    so we don't pollute the WoTism thread too much, I figured there are enough of us playing this to have a thread about it. Ok Tekky and Colli, teach us how to abuse the game.
  9. Thread fro discussing the less glamorous aspects of infantry warfare. Helmets, night vision, backpacks and other assorted oddities. And for the first post, Canadian military is apparently testing a spring loaded knee brace to assist carrying heavy loads with less damage to knees. http://www.defensetech.org/2016/07/22/canadian-military-testing-bionic-knee-brace-for-troops/ Should also be useful for rehab after injuries. They are selling a commercial version for $1750
  10. This thread is for random aerospace and Ordnance news that doesn't merit it's own thread. Anyhow, the US is deploying an upgrade to the JSOW that makes it capable against moving ships, as well as changing targets mid flight. The JSOW C-1 variant is network enabled, meaning it can be used against moving targets such as ships/boats. The big upgrade to it is Link 16 Data link, enabling targeting updates several times mid course. http://www.scout.com/military/warrior/story/1647495-navy-to-deploy-new-fighter-launched-weapon
  11. Owie. No. I have friends near there. Definitely one to keep an eye on tho.
  12. Think of it as it basically being a way to drain off hard currency in the form of guided missiles, Ballistic and AAA missile sales. Cynical, who me?
  13. Accurate summation. Saudis are terribbad at ground war and only marginally competent at air war, but have American backing, and probably some not so clandestine Israeli backing. Iranian forces are marginally competent at ground war, and have Russian weapons and probably, in the long term, Russian strategic backing.

    What is this thing?

    When one of us is drunk anything can get randomly necro'd, if we're being honest. /sips weird local coffee infused whiskey calmly.

    General news thread

    Wrong thread. We have a huge Syria discussion thread ongoing
  16. Belesarius

    Syrian conflict.

    There are forces on both sides that have been pushing for war between Iran and Israel/Saudi Arabia for a while now. I've been saying that for months and months.

    Panem et Circenses Thread

    Yeah, by all account the guy threw one hell of a game.

    Food and Putting it in Our Faces

    Club sandwich with Sundried tomato basil turkey, crispy black pepper bacon, havarti cheese, baby greens, tomatoes and fresh basil mayo on a super fresh onion bun. Perfect sandwich? No. But damned close.

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    Or massive drop tanks and external stores as well, like we see with the F-22 fairly often on casual deployment.
  21. So we have an aerospace pic thread. Boats are cool too. So how do you ship a ship?
