Two questions:

1, When is the storm occurred, the one that happens in 2017 or later?
2, When S-400 claimed to has 600km of detection and attack ranges?

Also the title seems misleading, if all S-400 never got to China, then how’s the news about 48N6E tests occurred in 2018? I think it’s just refer to 40N6(E) that happens to be a part of the shipment got destroyed, and Russia isn’t officially using it 2 years ago?

40N6 is still a fable, and I doubt Russia would let China have it before themselves.

EDIT: China.com journalist has recently reported that China never have purchase 40N6E, and the damaged shipment is happened in Jan 2018, until April Russia was resent another batch and tested 48N6E3 later on.

Finland and USA just had an exercise called Distant Frontier in Alaska between themselves, separate from the Red Flag, so this comes as no big surprise, Finland has also been cleared for JASSM previously

If image sats are helping military to see stealth fighters, then it’s not stealthy anymore. Is it sounds like we need a whole new definition of “stealthiness”?

Also, Henri have some opinions to talk about Chinese ASAT weapons that US medias circulating recently. Waiting for the English translation, still:

Chilean Navy interested in the Adelaide-class frigates
quote:

The Chilean Navy is strongly interested in the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN) Adelaide-class frigates. The information comes from the Defensa.com website. The frigates have been at the forefront lately, due to the interest shown by the Polish and Hellenic Navies, and allegedly other ones too. Greece had recently showed interest in acquiring the two or three frigates of the RAN, in order to fill-in the gap in area air-defence capabilities for its fleet. According to statements made by the Greek Minister of Defence, the two frigates would cost EUR 180 million, without their weapons.

DARPA’s PALS Aims at Detecting Undersea Activity Thanks to Marine Organisms
quote:

Goliath grouper, black sea bass, and snapping shrimp, along with bioluminescent plankton and other microorganisms, are set to be the unlikely heroes of DARPA’s Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS) program. Five teams of researchers are developing new types of sensor systems that detect and record the behaviors of these marine organisms and interpret them to identify, characterize, and report on the presence of manned and unmanned underwater vehicles operating in strategic waters. This new, bio-centric PALS technology will augment the Department of Defense’s existing, hardware-based maritime monitoring systems and greatly extend the range, sensitivity, and lifetime of the military’s undersea surveillance capabilities.

The UK Defence Minister has just signed a new Joint Defence Agreement between the UK and Oman. It gives the UK a permanent Joint Logistics Support Base in the new port of Duqm, south of the capital Muscat. It will serve as a naval base, British Army base, training facility and logistics centre. The Royal Navy’s new carriers will be able to operate from the base. It is the only naval facility in the region capable of taking them.

The UK has had strong military links with Oman since the 19th Century. Oman hires officers from the British Army, Royal Navy and RAF for its armed forces. Moreover, officers from the Royal Army of Oman sometimes serve as officers in the British Army. The Sultan of Oman, Qaboos bin Said al Said, attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and once served as an officer in a Scottish Regiment.

https://navaltoday.com/2019/02/21/finland-buying-raytheons-essm-for-squadron-2020-corvettes/






The corvettes will be equipped with Mk 41 VLS, with displacement of around 3000 tons and the armaments chosen they are shaping out to be pretty potent ships in the region.

quote:


Type: Corvette
Displacement: Approximately 3,000 tons
Length: 105 m (344 ft)
Beam: 15 m (49 ft)
Speed: Over 25 knots (46 km/h; 29 mph)
Armament:

1 × Bofors 57 mm/70 SAK Mk3
Evolved Sea Sparrow surface-to-air missiles[2]
Gabriel surface-to-surface missiles[3]
Naval mines
SAAB Torpedo 47

Aviation facilities: Helideck and telescopic hangar


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pohjanmaa-class_corvette


Also logical as Finland is likely to get AMRAAM-ER for its NASAMS system.

Finnish Pohjanmaa-class will have newest MkV Gabriel version. These 3000 tons corvettes are unique, able to operate in ice conditions too. Truly multimission ships. But no own helos as far I know.

Four new covettes and same time Finnish Airforce is upgrading F/A-18 Hornet fleet. Interesting time indeed.

The Government of Finland has requested a possible sale of four (4) Mk 41 Baseline VII Strike-Length Vertical Launching Systems. Also included are spares, handling equipment, test equipment, operator manuals and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, training, technical, and logistical support services, and other related elements of logistical support. The estimated total case value is $70 million.

This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by improving the security of a partner nation that has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in Europe.

Very few details have been revealed, but the Royal Australian Air Force "Loyal Wingman" program has been secretly developing a UAV with Boeing that is due to be unveiled tomorrow at the Avalon Airshow. All that is known is it is over 12 metres/40 feet long, has a range of several thousand kilometres, has an internal payload bay for sensors and is intended for electronic warfare or reconnaissance, but could also carry weapons as a UCAV in the future.
