The USAF is retiring their AC-130U  aircraft and replacing them with new-build AC-130J aircraft.  The new AC-130Js are getting some new armament as well.

They have started receiving S-400 SAMs from Russia.  This means they won’t be getting F-35s.  Frankly, given its current government, I don’t see Turkey staying in NATO.  I am not sure they were ever really a good fit to begin with.

This is interesting.  It also makes one wonder about all of the criticism that the F-35 has received.

Arma has a very nice blog with some nice history articles that tie into their products.  This one is very good.  I will have to check back periodically.

I have the Arma kit.  It is very nice. They are now releasing a version with markings for naval units.  Cool.

I’ve posted on this thing previously.  It seems to have come out of nowhere.  I can see where something like this will be very valuable as a force multiplier, which the US really needs if China is our biggest strategic threat.
