Story here.  Interesting that they are using the MiG-31 as the carrier for the missile.  I have my doubts as to its advertised effectiveness.

Thanks for friend and blog reader Jeff Groves for pointing out this article on a technology that might make subs invisible to active sonar in the future.  This would be a huge shift in anti-submarine warfare.

More on the Modelcollect B-52

Test build here.  I am a bit concerned with the wings.  They look like they have the same problem that the AMT kit does (i.e. the wings don’t droop and look more like they do when the 52 is in flight.) I am betting the outriggers don’t touch the ground.  That will mean some major work to get it to look right in the wheels down pose.

Neat video of an Israeli missile striking a Russian-made Syrian SA-22.  The SA-22 didn’t seem to be defending itself.

It is out.  For some reason I already thought this one had been released.  This gives me hope that they’ll do a MiG-19

More test shots.  Man I am really looking forward to this.

Not good news

If Chinese forces are actively using lasers to try an blind our pilots, you have to think that the Chinese are willing to up the tensions between the two countries.  I wonder if this was a local commander or some local troops going off script.  If not, that worries me.
