Some of those older ships were pretty rough, by the time they'd got their cargo back to Murmansk it was unfit for human consumption and was used to feed the local pigs. I used to read the Hornbeam...

Weapons effectiveness

The air launched heavyweight torpedo and anti-ship missile do different things to the target, assuming the survive the short journey.

Chinese conscripts

The impression of the competence of 'the average Chinese conscript' could perhaps be a little outdated.

It is the Chinese container ship which is the warship which has already subdued the world, in a trade war.

Here's mine:
Answer A was 144, then divide it by 23 = 6.26. Then multiply that integer (6) by 23 to get 138. Take that away from 'Answer A' to get 6 which = G.

Oh how very BBC to put in a photo of a Hurricane chasing an ME-108. There must be thousands of photos with the ME-109, but there you go .'close enough' journalism again.

It's a shame that the 'F-35B' is not known as the Lightning ll FGR Mk 1.

Planning

MTI only tells you that something is moving. It doesn't tell you what it is. For planning I guess it can say that 'something moved from one place to another' but you still need to send another asset...

Personalities

The US Army were keen to fly a Mohawk into an RAF airfield in West Germany (Gutersloh probably).

SAR-MTI + EO/IT Cross-cueing!

When I said we’d be better off with Wedgetail, that’s what I meant. It’s a better use of money and...

RIP-ASTOR

Bloody thing! It is exactly what we needed in the late 70's for BAOR. The concept of a broad area radar ONLY asset is so dated.
It could be used to cue other assets onto a possible target for...

Mermaid-B

Hi TEEEJ,

The ‘Mermaid -B’ name would seem to fit, but who is going to authorise it?

Thanks for the interesting links.

The Porpoise?

I quite like it too, I see it as an ideal replacement for the old Be-12 Mail.
