The Chinese government has been making great efforts to steal US technology.  As part of that they have been paying professors at american universities.  It is amazing the number of academics who have been willing to sell themselves and their talents.  I am glad to see the government cracking down on this.

Tu-160M2

The first of the upgraded Tu-160M2 has apparently been finished and test flown.  Story here. Interesting that the Russians feel compelled to continue to keep a viable long range bomber force. Given their money troubles and that the price of oil is in free-fall (as of March 7th, 2020) this may not be the best use of their defense dollar.
