A report on a proposed Russian CVL.  Frankly, nothing in the specs in this article make sense.  The numbers quoted for size don’t make sense with any of the other numbers. (h/t Jeff Groves)

A long time ago, I built an Israeli Mirage III from the Matchbox kit and did a kit bash of a Argentinian Dagger from a kit I don’t remember.  I don’t have either anymore.  Therefore I’d like to get this kit when it comes out.

Or actually a pair of BlackjacksLooks like Putin is flexing his muscles again.  I saw a few days ago that B-52 were doing the reverse route penetration practices, so this may just be a reaction.
