Short of China? Not many.


The Russian air defense systems are more advanced at this stage and for the foreseable future than the Chinese ones. The Chinese are trying to get their hands on any Russian system related to aircraft and defenses against aircraft for good reason. With Russia being a more politically active exporter of arms, I'd rather focus on being technology superiour to Russian systems.

And how many of the US's current enemies have modern radar equipment? Heck, how many of them have radar equipment that's less than 30 years old?
Not to mention that most of the F-35's other customers don't have adversaries at all. Or how many foes do Norway or the Netherlands have?

In any event, whatever adversaries may be there they will bend over backwards to acquire technologies that render stealth futures moot.

[UN troops fail to prevent capture of Goma], or rather they didn't do a damn thing like usual.

How can anyone seriously be suprised that the UN again failed to protect civilians, the last effective UN force was United Nations Command (Korea) ... glare.gif

I take it they'll put it on their to do list along with "acquire technology to defeat Chobham armour" and "acquire technology to defeat IRR clothing" and so on, and so forth.

I don't think so, Dave. Russia and China for example have access to state of the art technology and contrary to our governments their regimes always get the defence budget they want.

I think you're wrong on this account. The peacekeeping force in Kongo has done some real fighting over the past few years, especially Guatemalan troops have dealt the rebels quite a few severe blows. That's the sad part of the story: whenever the so called major powers aren't in on it, the UN can actually do some good.

Came across this while browsing, so might as well share it. If nothing else, well, at least a 2013 present for pMaster.

G3 soldiers on in Afghanistan!

Also, lots of other nice stuff about the German contingent in Afgh.

Thanks!
Oh boy... I've been so trying to get a licence for one through the shooting club I'm still a member of... unfortunately they're a bunch of spineless wussies who want to reduce full caliber shooting sports in favour of air rifle and small caliber pistol shooting. Bah.
And why? "The public thinks ill of us already"... Bah!

Pretty interesting (and maybe a sign of things to come?): Germany's government says that with 99% certainty the Netherlands's 11. Luchtmobiele Brigade (11th Air Assault Brigade) will permanently become a combat brigade of the German Army's Rapid Reaction Division from 2014 onwards - not in the sense of one of these rather toothless bilateral cooperation thingies but of a serious assignment. Both countries also plan to have their paratroopers trained at a single, jointly operated training center.

With todays technology having a bunch of countries involved really just means they support the US in their actions. Considering two B2 could strike upwards of 120 targets simultaneously having a 30 year old British Tornado flight sat in Akrotiri (landed on an hour ago according to AFP) is just showmanship.

What i'm interested in is if Russia will come through on its threat to use its S-300s if the West launches an attack.
