Nothing related to military, but the future of gaming. YouTube star has clearly mentioned YouTube's sponsoring companies (and potentially in some other streaming sites) has now stop funding to him because of N-word, and other anti-semistic speeches. A precaution to CMANO gamers who making/streaming scenarios involved with these:

EDIT: no clear sign showing YouTube is actively 'banning' N-word yet.

If Russia did use it, I am surprised they are not highlighting the technology like the US did. Different societies for sure.

Thanks for the link.

MQ-25 update:

Maybe update aviation fuel quantity in DB?

In an interview with the U.S. Naval Institute’s magazine Proceedings, Shoemaker, who holds the position of Commander, Naval Air Forces, said the goal was for each MQ-25 to be able to dispense more than approximately 2,200 gallons, or nearly 15,000 pounds, of fuel 500 miles from the carrier. At present, the Super Hornets have an effective combat radius of around 450 miles.

Reading the article, there seems to be a lot of skepticism that the payload is even achievable with the existing airframe. I think db changes might be a little premature without being able to determine what can be brought into production.

If rebuilding An-225 is only a dream, it will be a very cruel dream. I doubt this one is Ukrainian's own decision though:

https://sputniknews.com/analysis/201709161057451059-ukraine-china-military-cooperation-problems/

UPDATE: Motor Sich denied these claims and is still cooperating with China. Need time to confirm what exactly is happening:

No less than 16x AShM missiles (LRASM presumably) for LM's FFG(X) proposal. LCS hull stretched by 10 meters (and bilge keels added at the stern)

DSEI 2017: Lockheed Martin Unveils LCS 125M Concept Design for US Navy FFG(X)

quote:

At DSEI 2017, the international defense trade show currently held in London, UK, Lockheed Martin unveiled the new LCS 125 meters. A company representative explained that this "concept" is representative of Lockheed Martin's answer to the U.S. Navy FFG(X) requirement.

Armed operational Iwakumi VMFA-121 F-35B on the drills surrounding North Korea:
http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/14416/f-35s-were-carrying-live-aim-120-missiles-during-show-of-force-training-flight-over-korea

And also, another caveat on F-35: in warm weathers the loaded weapons bay only can be closed in ground operations by 10 cumulative minutes.

"Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said a Patriot Advanced Capability-3 interceptor unit was deployed at the Hakodate base on southern Hokkaido "as a precaution" as part of government preparations for a possible emergency."

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/A/AS_KOREAS_TENSIONS?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2017-09-19-04-46-59

"Japan currently has a two-step missile defense system. First, Standard Missile-3 interceptors on Aegis destroyers in the Sea of Japan would attempt to shoot down missiles mid-flight. If that fails, surface-to-air PAC-3s would try to intercept them."

Seems like a reasonable reaction to ongoing events.

An alleged J-20 Prototype #2021 conducted a maiden flight. It's the first prototype installed with indigenous engines, but yet to determined the exact model.



Rumors referred those engines are customized WS-10B used by J-11B and J-16, which has little inferior thrust compare to AL-31F (130kN vs 137kN, A/B on), but with a saw-toothed nozzle and lower core temperature to reduce signatures at the back.

USS George Washington updates:

"NORFOLK (NNS) -- After nearly 25 years of serving the country, the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) is preparing to take an extended, well deserved and much needed, 40-plus-month break for its Refueling Complex Overhaul (RCOH) maintenance period.

A U.S. Navy ship's life journey is long, arduous and full of the dedication, tears, blood and sweat of its crew. This journey is one that is loaded with hard work and long hours, all while at the mercy of the sea and its environment. After nearly 25 years of serving the country, the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) is preparing to take an extended, well deserved and much needed, 40-plus-month break for its Refueling Complex Overhaul (RCOH) maintenance period.

Throughout the first 25 years of an aircraft carrier's life, it goes through several maintenance periods, but never anything to the extreme of an RCOH. The ship, not only takes a toll from the elements and the sea, but also falls behind technologically after 25 years of innovation happening around it. RCOH is essentially the time to renew the ship.

During RCOH, and the follow-on outfitting period, nearly all combat systems equipment will be refurbished, upgraded or replaced with newer technology, said Cmdr. Don Wilson, GW's combat systems officer. It truly is quite amazing how much work will be done. The ship will receive upgraded weapons systems; to include Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM), Evolved NATO Sea Sparrow Missile System, Close-In Weapons System (CIWS), Mk-38 25mm automatic gun systems, and Anti-Torpedo Defense Systems.

The Ship's Self-Defense System and all other tactical network and intelligence systems and sensors will be upgraded, said Wilson. Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services will become the new ship-wide network, which will include a new video distribution and surveillance systems, and the mast and the SPN-49 radar tower will be cut off and replaced with a modern design."

http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=98195

I assume the new radar will be the rotating version of EASR.

DSEI 2017: 155mm Vulcano Precision-Guided Munition Showcased for the 1st Time

quote:

Leonardo and BAE Systems were showcasing a 155mm variant of the Vulcano precision-guided munition for the first time last week at DSEI, the international defense show held in London, UK. Back in June this year, the two companies have announced an initiative to pursue collaborations on new precision-guided solutions that will offer U.S. and allied military forces a range of low-risk, cost effective, advanced munitions for advanced, large caliber weapon systems.
...
Talking to Navy Recognition during DSEI 2017, John Perri, Director of Business Development at BAE Systems / Weapons Systems explained “Because BAE Systems is the OEM of the AGS and Mk 45 – as well as M777 and M109 – it’s easier for us to integrate Vulcano into these weapons. On AGS in particular, Vulcano’s design makes it much more adaptable to the automated handling system.”
