I wonder if the author of the article knows about CMANO? Seems like the game does a lot of what he says needs doing, aside from the political, diplomatic and logistic aspects.

There are massive trollings at ZH’s comment section against the Chinese government, for showing off their PAP troops near Hong Kong border. Hundreds of 6x6 ICVs and passenger trucks are assembling in Shenzhen and likely over 30k of PAP personnels included. Even the state media reported them dramatically and very determined to give rioters in Hong Kong some lethal lessons:

U.S. Navy Considering More Advanced Burke Destroyers as Large Surface Combatant Timeline Slips

quote:

The Navy is looking at “something beyond even a Flight III” combat capability for its new-build destroyers, as its plans for transitioning from building the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer to the future Large Surface Combatant continue to evolve and the LSC procurement date continues to slide.

https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/2019/08/u-s-navy-considering-more-advanced-burke-destroyers-as-large-surface-combatant-timeline-slips/


DDG 51 Burke Flight IV ? Flight IIIA ?

I am a bit surprised honestly because i heard here and there rumors that the Flight III is already at the limits (in terms of weight, stability, power etc...)

Why not use the DDG1000 hull as the new base platform ?

The U.S. Navy’s newest aircraft carrier Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) system received the green light to recover all “props and jets” aircraft.

Interactive map of Russian military deployments. This might be of some help to scenario designers.

https://www.gfsis.org/maps/russian-military-forces

Looks like the map was updated in April:

"Created date: 2018-07-30 08:01:29
Latest modified date: 2019-04-24 07:05:29"

Go into the Map information section for more details.

UK & Norway Reinforce Commitment for Joint ASW Ops in North Atlantic

quote:

The UK and Norway reinforced their commitment for joint anti-submarine operations in the North Atlantic at RAF Lossiemouth in North-East Scotland today.

Defence Minister Anne-Marie Trevelyan hosted Norwegian State Secretary Tone Skogen to discuss NATO and the UK’s role in the North Atlantic.

The UK is investing £3 billion in nine new Boeing Poseidon P-8A maritime patrol aircraft (MPA), with Norway committing to a further five. The aircraft are sophisticated submarine-hunters designed to scout complex undersea threats.

The aircraft will work together, and with NATO allies, to combat a range of intensifying threats in the North Atlantic, including increased hostile submarine activity.

U.S. Marines Demonstrate M142 HIMARS MLRS Capabilities in Amphibious Raid

quote:

U.S. Marines with 3rd Marine Division demonstrated the mobility and lethality of the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System during a simulated amphibious raid, Aug. 14, 2019.

The training provides an opportunity for the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Navy to enhance their interoperability and develop new methods of integrating Marine assets into the naval expeditionary force. During the operation, a HIMARS platoon from 12th Marine Regiment successfully loaded personnel and equipment onto a U.S. Navy landing craft, utility, where it was then transferred to another location and offloaded on shore for follow-on missions.

This capability makes HIMARS a more lethal and extensive asset. “This exercise helps showcase our unit’s mobility and the mobility of the HIMARS in the Indo-Pacific,” said U.S. Marine Cpl. Pablo Villegas, a HIMARS operator who participated in the training. He went on to say that HIMARS are typically driven over land or inserted into an area of operations via aircraft, now that HIMARS are able to be transported via a LCU, there are no limits to where the HIMARS can be.

This was fast as heck. Just in June, you could even argue that what was thought to be the first Type 075 LHD hull in Shanghai wasnt even a military ship...
Now, the island is installed and the ship is only a month from being launched. Construction took just under a year.

Well, since:

- Lockheed-Martin themselves are calling them "identical to the fielded maritime system"

- They are visually undistinguishable from their ship-mounted counterparts and

-There has been no information about the nature of the alleged modifications, unlike the cases of the compartimentalized bomb bay of the B-1B or the condemned missile tubes of the Ohio subs (both modified to comply with the START treaty)

You can color me more than a bit sceptic about that.

While I have no evidence to back it up, it would be very easy to simply not install any of the TLAM mission planning systems or associated data connections in the cells themselves. Modified could simply mean they never installed the necessary cables.

2. The 2018 Nuclear Posture Review (released February 2018) explicitly noted that the US was conducting this treaty compliant research as a pressure mechanism to attempt to bring the Russians back into compliance. You can see how well that worked out...

Yep. Not to mention the world military are getting eager to arm land-based long range weaponries for their armies. The demise of INF is expected no matter who becomes the US or Russian president. I don’t think a launcher that being handicapped to fire only one type of weapon is a good idea, even they are risking to violate the treaty before the expiration.

This is not case of "R&D for air and sea launch". This is definitely ground-launched missile, moreover missile BGM-109G is object of treaty, launch conducted from launcher not distinguishable from launchers for ground-launch missiles. The bunch of treaty violations.

Please, every big country policy has dirty stain. USA wanted to dismiss treaty, USA found occasion and break the treaty. Any kind of "Nuclear Posture Review", statements of State of Government etc. is only diplomatic games, not more. Don't take it seriously, look deeper.
Probably Russia needs to dismiss treaty too. But in this concrete case USA was more aggressive and goal-oriented.

Well, not quite. Altius is three times heavier and has twice longer range. Orion looks more like a counterpart of Reaper.

This was fast as heck. Just in June, you could even argue that what was thought to be the first Type 075 LHD hull in Shanghai wasnt even a military ship...
Now, the island is installed and the ship is only a month from being launched. Construction took just under a year.


More pictures of the 075 island:
