  1. 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

    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.

  8. So 2016 has been a rough year for celebs so far. And we just lost another music great. Glen Frey, of the Eagles passed away today. http://eagles.com/news/266763
  9. So we have an aerospace pic thread. Boats are cool too. So how do you ship a ship?

    More Canadian Procurement Fail.

  13. http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/naval/ships/2015/07/11/canada-renting-resupply-ships-from-chile-spain/29869123/ One more reason for me to hate on the Conservatives and their ongoing and massive defense procurement fuckups.

    Saudi Arabia to begin operations in Yemen

    it's a little damp.
  15. 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

    Sharks, Rays and other fun stuff thread.

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/ocearch-wraps-up-expedition-nova-scotia-1.4861933?cmp=FB_Post_News Possible Great White breeding ground off Nova Scotia.
  17. This thread is for interesting/neat articles about sharks,rays and other related stuff. Washington Post story of offshore Killer Whales feeding on a shark, with some interesting drone footage of them feeding and teaching a juvenile killer whale how to do it. The shark appears, to me anyway, to be a juvenile Great White. Filmed in Monterrey Bay, so that makes sense. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2016/12/19/drone-video-captures-killer-whales-eating-a-shark-alive/?utm_term=.145b7f4df0c8

  20. There are a multitude of reasons why Damian isn't a poster here anymore. Him getting called out for that particular foible is one of them.
