I’ve never heard of this before.  I know during the collapse of the USSR some nuke subs were reportedly tied up to docks and used as power plants.  This seems to be a next level purpose-built version of that idea.  I can see why folks would be concerned  about its safety.

I wonder what this is all about.  I suspect the story is correct and it WASN’T an Israeli IRBM.  But, what was it?

Now the Army wants in on the railgun whiz-bang.  If the US gets these into service with the Navy and Army, it will put the US military far ahead of the rest of the world.

I’ve already admitted that I am an SBS fanboy.  I must admit that this aircraft in this boxing looks neat.  I will hopefully check it out at this years Nats.

I was unaware that the small country of Qatar was expanding its navy in this fashion.  It makes sense given the threat from Iran.

I have a thing for the MiG-25.  I also, as has been previously established, have a thing for decals.  Thus, this will be high on my purchase list.

I will admit I am a complete SBS fan boy.  I love their stuff.  Given that, I can’t wait for their new G.50
