Vulcano:
“VULCANO” is a family of unguided (BER) and guided (GLR) ammunition for the 76mm, 127mm naval guns, and 155mm land artillery systems.

VULCANO 127mm ammunition is conceived to give the 127/54 C and the 127/64 LW Naval Guns the capability to meet any present and future Precision Naval Fire requirement Support and Long Range engagement of Surface Targets.

Is it just me, or does this thing look like the bastard child of a JDAM, a mortar round, and an M982 Excalibur artillery shell?

I think US military is already well-aware the terminology “Hypersonic” before 21st century. And if China is also building a supercarrier with equivalent if not superior to the US Navy counterpart, then China should worry the same from what US/NATO have about (sub-)hypersonic weaponries in near future.

But I am more concerned about a weapon that entirely negate every close-air point defenses, like this one:


(From https://twitter.com/jpg2t785/status/1403847795304402946)

The air-launch, high speed diving anti-ship missile-torpedo (torpessile?) was leaked as a rumor that Chinese military is being curious about. It doesn’t require Mach >5 at the terminal phrase to penetrate shipborne point defenses, but rather entirely render them irrelevant by submerge into water and supercavitate toward the ship, no CIWS or missile can intercept it when it’s submerged, unless some hard-kill anti-torpedo countermeasures are already in service.

Croatia will buy 12 secondhand Dassault Rafale fighter jets from France to modernize its air force, including fleet support and training
Croatia’s government has selected the Dassault Aviation Rafale for its Air Force following an international call for tenders as part of its Multi Role Fighter Aircraft (MRFA) program to replace its current MiG-21s.

In the government-to-government deal worth €999 million, the Croatian Air Force will receive 12 secondhand Rafale that were previously in service with the French Air Force, as well as fleet support and training.

France is to deliver the first six aircraft in 2024, with the remainder following in 2025. The deal includes 10 single-seat models and 2 two-seat models.

Croatia will be the fifth Rafale export customer, confirming the advanced technological and operational abilities of the latest-generation, combat proven, multirole fighter.

During the 2nd rehearsal of the parade to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party, today, 15 J-20 fighter planes once again flew over the city center of Beijing.
