  1. https://www.defensenews.com/air/2019/03/22/industrial-base-considerations-played-role-in-f-15x-decision/ I think payload refers to weapons of a specific weight class, like what the F-15's centerline can carry, and not total weight because the F-35 can carry a pretty heavy payload if the wing pylons are allowed. Also remember the upgrade for the B-52's wing pylons.
  2. https://www.fbo.gov/utils/view?id=244b0235a0e2cc4d02aeaf2d1a2ad4de Type 26 is out for FFGX, the USN is only considering ships with parent designs already in the water. FREMM gets my vote.
  3. Honestly kind of happy they are going back to NATO tricolor on M1A2C. Edit; https://www.armyrecognition.com/weapons_defence_industry_military_technology_uk/us_new_combat_vehicle_coating_to_increase_soldier_survivability.html Also this might be wrong because the turret is asymetrical and Damian isn't comparing the same side.
  4. Remember this when a media outlet says they are unbiased and only interested in holding government accountable. https://freebeacon.com/issues/media-foia-requests-to-epa-spiked-after-trump-election-data-reveal/
  5. Jordan and Meadows send a letter to AG Barr asking for an update on the criminal referral on McCabe.
  6. A yet unnamed IIA Aleigh Burke will get a 60KW laser in 2021.
  7. Per the President's Budget submission for FY2020 Navy will begin procurement of 24 Radar Module Assembly (RMA) SPY-6 radar sets, and associated electrical and cooling equipment in FY2022, for installation in a DDG Flight IIA beginning in FY2025. The specific hull will be named later
  8. https://www.toledoblade.com/politics/2019/03/16/abrams-titan-tanks-plant-lima-ohio-defense-spending-army M1A2C being manufactured at Lima, something new is the plate with 3 holes on the hull front.
  9. It looks like there still is an interest in using Bradleys as a SHORAD platform, from the FY20 budget request justification books.
  10. $150k is probably closer to what they have always costed. Also it says that Q2 of FY20 is when they will decide on whether to buy more Iron Dome for IFPC or go with something else. That would mean a battery for each MSHORAD and Patriot battalion.
  11. Could someone do me a favor and link this in Solomon's comments the next time he makes an F-35 post?
  12. The USN wants to retire six Ticonderogas in 2021 and 2022.
