asymetric warfare by phil hunt
What would be sensible strategies/weapons for a middle-ranking country to employ if it thought it is likely to be involved in a war against the USA or other Western countries, say in the next 10 years? I think one strategy would be to use large numbers of low cost cruise missiles (LCCM). The...

Best dogfight gun? by Bjørnar Bolsøy
It takes time to wind up and has a small projectile, so how does the M61 really stack up against, say, the BK27 og Giat 30mm as far as dogfighting is concerned? Even with the PGU28? Is shot density the primary factor to look at? Regards...

Why not use the F-22 to replace the F/A-18 and F-14? by Guy Alcala
"R. David Steele" wrote: Also why not market the C-17 to the air freight community? This has been mooted, either as is or in a civil variant, at various times. For some of the issues involved you might wish to read "C-17 -- How to Get More for Less": http://handle.dtic.mil/100.2/ADA357811

Could the Press Grow a Spine? by WalterM140
Well I watched "Hardball" last night with Campbell Brown. She had Bartlett, one of the Bushies on. She asked him a question. He talked for a while and she said something like, "you are very articulate, but that avoids the question completely." I wish more of the Press would point out that the vast...

The State of the Union: Lies about a Dishonest War by RobbelothE
Ted Kennedy. What a hoot! This guy talks a good game but that's about it. He's a documented adulterer, major league alcoholic, and not much of a driver (one of his dates never got home alive). It appears his moral outrage is selective. He now opposes the use of force to remove a dictator (and his...

EU as joke (modified) by Cub Driver
The more or less final (some would say "cooked") figures are in, and Europe's performance is not entirely as shabby as I earlier posted. Japan says it will provide $5 billion, including $3.5 billion in loans (as if Iraq needed any more of those, after what Germany, France, and Russia extended to...

Defence plan to scrap F-111s by David Bromage
The RAAF's 35 F-111 warplanes - Australia's front-line strategic strike force - could be retired from service from 2006, a decade earlier than originally planned, if the Government accepts a controversial option put forward by the Defence Department. A key issue is whether early retirement for the...
