This company has come from nowhere to be the huge player in the UAV market.  They are doing some amazing things, and I suspect that we don’t know the half of what they are really doing.  Latest here.

Pour one out for a true patriot. A man’s man. The word hero applies in this case. Story here.

I love WWII history.  Another story I didn’t know.  Also, I have a kit of this aircraft.

There is always another WWII story I’d never heard about.

The real question is are they durable?  This is an interesting development.

Look at what we have here.  The biggest question this raises is how did Border Models get the molds?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Enjoy

News reports indicate that Argentina is interested in buying Pakistani/Chinese JF-17s.  This would certainly be an interesting development.

The Checkmate.  It is just a mock up at present.  Apparently it is solely for the export market.  It is an attempt to make something cheaper than the Su-57.  We’ll see if it ever gets built.
