  1. ROCAF F-16A Block 20 tail number 6672 Unfortunately, this F-16 disappeared today during a nighttime training mission
  2. The sale to Croatia of ex-Israeli F-16s collapsed as the US government would not allow the resale of the aircraft following modifications by the Israelis. https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-blocking-israeli-sale-of-used-f-16s-to-croatia-report/ https://www.reuters.com/article/us-croatia-israel-military-idUSKCN1P42MN Oh and it appears that a USMC F-35B has midaired with a KC-130J over southern California. F-35 pilot ejected, KC-130 belly landed in a field, everyone is mostly fine except for the F-35B. https://news.usni.org/2020/09/29/marine-f-35b-crashes-after-collisi
  3. Well, time to play "do I really care enough to root for anyone believe anyone's claims", Caucasus Edition
  4. https://tass.ru/proisshestviya/9520431 TASS is now reporting that its sources say that friendly fire is a possible cause of the crash. I guess Baza blowing the lid on the MiG-31 blue on blue incident means they can't do total coverups anymore
  5. I suppose you must be charmed enough to have never encountered such personalities at the top of any organizational hierarchies. Or Miltwitter. More than a few of us have been published with proper bylines, covering subject matter more relevant to today than a 62 year old tank. We have been there and done that, the difference is that for the most part we weren't so certain of our own intellectual superiority just because we got published someplace for the first time.

  8. https://www.vedomosti.ru/politics/articles/2019/12/24/819543-su-57 Someone's going to be tasked with cleaning up bits of Su-57 this winter
  9. https://amp.nos.nl/artikel/2310447-defensie-f-35-lijkt-niets-over-te-hebben-gehouden-aan-foutje-met-blusschuim.html Well, both Lockheed Martin and P&W have remotely inspected the airframe and found it to be perfectly fine.
  10. JASDF F-35s at Nagoya Airfield

  16. In which the British get to feel a bit better about themselves https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/turkey-now-has-a-carrier-without-jets/
  17. https://www.defenseone.com/politics/2019/07/graham-trump-asked-me-call-turkey-s-400-deal/158706/?oref=d-river At the forefront of US-Turkey negotiations is... Lindsey Graham. Well, Kushner hasn't managed to provably get someone killed yet, what's the margin for error here?
