Am I the only one that thinks that this proves the russians correct, when they complained about the Aegis Ashore being a INF-violating launcher back in 17?

Ancalagon

That was obvious since the early 2000's, or even the late 1990's, after US voiced up they want to denounce ABM Treaty. Sadly, EU, dancing to the tune of US, don't understand that for the 2nd time we all might not be that lucky to avoid the major nuclear conflict and Europe(including Russia, of course) will be the first victim of it.

But keep blaming Russia under ridiculous pretexts and allow US to destruct all the treaties that deterrent the new nuclear arms race. What, possibly, may go wrong and nuclear, r-right?!

This is why I find it weird to call off the treaty against Russia. Who else has the most sophisticated IRBM in the world? Surely not Russia even they broke it at late-2010s. It’s China that US want to after with: it’s not just jealously, it’s also a real threat to US military when China is not even involved with INF in the beginning, and see how they transformed since 90s.

And the evidence we broke it is...? Oh, it is a claim of the one metioned country which inventing pretexts to denounce all the treaties that helped to stop CW-era arms race, one by one, since the late 1990's.

JARI the AESA-equipped combat USV prototype was unveiled :

https://twitter.com/globaltimesnews/status/1164481557580697601
http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1162320.shtml

quote:

China launched a world-leading unmanned combat vessel on Wed. This small but powerful drone ship is equipped with a phased array radar system, vertical-launched missiles and torpedoes, and has been dubbed by some as a “small aegis ship.”

..................

The ship has a length of about only 15 meters and a displacement of 20 tons, but is capable of conducting air defense, anti-ship and anti-submarine missions thanks to a phased array radar system, vertical-launched missiles and torpedoes, China Central Television (CCTV) reported in February, when a model of the JARI was exhibited at the 14th International Defense Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) in Abu Dhabi.

Speaking of ESSM. A leaked diagram of Chinese quad-packable SAM and VLS box designs are revealed recently. The 导轨与发射箱连接位置 (connectors for VLS rails and adjacent boxes) indicate it’s multiple packability and likely to be used for their UVLS on warships. As for what type of missile it is remain in question:

That article struck me as more of a desperate attempt to sway readers through quantity rather than quality (I mean, seriously circling a blank spot on an propaganda picture and claiming that it proves a pilot was shot down?)

The best write up I've seen of the engagement is from the Pakistani perspective: http://kaiser-aeronaut.blogspot.com/2019/06/pulwama-from-bluster-to-whimper.html

While it definitely has hints of propaganda in it, it's not as bad as the stuff coming out of India and it lays out a very simple and compelling narrative that includes numerous small details that ring true with my understanding of the respective planes and their capabilities.

SCMP is spouting non-official nonsense about carrier-borne J-20, the media claimed PLAN have it chosen recently, but I found none of the related source from Chinese medias and forums. Some have casted doubts over this rumor.

Head editor of Chinese Arsenal, Minnie Chan, is really need some serious scrutinies regarding to her sourcings.

US approves sale of SM-3 Block IIA ABM Interceptors to Japan

quote:

The U.S. State Department approved a possible Foreign Military Sale to Japan of up to 73 Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA missiles for an estimated cost of $3.295 billion.

These missiles are likely intended to be fitted on the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) Aegis destroyers such as the four Kongo-class, the two Atago-class or the future two Maya-class of destroyers.

These missile could also be deployed from the Aegis Ashore system recently procured by Japan. The U.S. Department of State approved the sale of two such batteries to Japan in January. They will be installed in Akita and Yamaguchi prefectures and are set to be operational from 2025.
...
The SM-3 Block IIA is designed to destroy SRBM (short range ballistic missile) and IRBM (intermediate-range ballistic missiles). It is a joint development project started in 2006 by Raytheon and Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

Compared to previous variant of the missile (like the SM-3 Block IB), the Block II1 variant features a larger rocket motor and a larger kinetic interceptor.

Nope ... Not in our lifetimes.

“Invasion” is not an easy word to say especially in today’s time. It depends on the causality it has to make during the landing, but saying so will heavily impact the marine’s morale. This is why amphibious assault must be reconsidered several times when it is up against the country who has massive anti-ship arsenals.

According to ship spotter pictures, the "Academician Ageev", first ship of Project 16450 class, was transferred under tow to a new shipyard for completion. The vessel's official designation is "oceanographic research vessel (special purpose)".

Video: French Navy shifting to dual crews for its FREMM Frigates

quote:

Interview with Vice Admiral Jean-Phillipe Rolland, Surface Fleet Commander (ALFAN) of the French Navy (Marine Nationale) about the shift to dual crews for the FREMM frigates.

The French Navy is experimenting with dual crews with two FREMM Frigates: Aquitaine in Brest (Atlantic fleet) and Languedoc in Toulon (Mediterranean fleet).

Crew A and crew B (each consisting of 109 sailors) will alternate every 4 months, allowing sailors to retain and develop their skills on a professional level while being able to have more freedom (in terms of schedule) on a personal level. The shift to a dual crew concept will also increase the operational availability of the Aquitaine-class: They are expected to be able to spend 50% more days at sea (FREMM frigate typically spent 110 days at sea before the adoption of the dual crew concept). Another expected benefit is that the crews will be more rested, therefore more operationally efficient when going back to sea (and less prone to committing mistakes in their tasks).

Thailand signed an agreement with China to purchase Type 071E LPD. Possibly just one, and is somewhat different from 071 that PLAN is using:
