Ah, the details! Funny how things like this creep into cyber-space, just like the marketing detail for interested Arab Nations.

Subtle? Stealthy? Not!

The UK and US might be waiting for it for altogether different reasons...
Bring it on.

Did you click on the video? How about the language option, or did you leave it in Russian?

Longer wheelbase = more internal weapons stowage, though.

They could name it flabby after their leader, or flaccid.

Meanwhile, the Russians quietly have updated 80% of their nuclear arsena and are deploying Hypersonic Weapons for both offense and defense, l while the West has done......what?

Focus upon pronouns and diversity amongst the ranks at the direct cost to Operational Training and development of more effective fighting capability.....now what could possibly go wrong with that kind of thinking

Come a Peer Conflict between adversaries like the Chinese or Russians.....or both.....how will that turnout?

From a recent TV series....a bit of dialogue instructed the West plays Chess where the goal is to kill the opposing King.....but the Chinese play GO where the goal is to build the largest empire...not kill the King.

Considering the actions of China and Russia.....was there some truth in that bit of dialogue?

One thing for sure....the net effect of the improvement in the military might of Russia and China does pose a threat to the current Status Quo.
