Russia continues to lose population.  My prediction is this leads to an attempt by China to grab part of the Russian far east at some point.

Upgraded J-10

Looks like China has upgraded the J-10 with a thrust vectoring exhaust.  For modelers I wonder if this is a simple nozzle replacement conversion to the Trumpeter J-10, or is it more complicated?

2000+ year old wine found in China.  Is it weird that I’d be tempted to taste it?  Knowing my luck I’d be like the guy who ate the slug.

Are the Chinese going to build new SSBNs?  Frankly, it would make sense for them to.

The US lured a spy runner who has been involved in stealing US company’s technology to Belgium where he was arrested and extradited.  We need to see a lot more of this stuff.

I previously noted a report on a missing Chinese movie star here.  Now, another high profile Chinese national has gone missing.  Could some sort of crackdown be going on behind the scene?

Readers won’t be surprised to see tensions in the South China Sea continuing to increase.  All it is going to take is someone making a miscalculation and somebody’s going to be shooting at someone else.

Story here claims that the Chinese have the engine problems on their J-20 fixed.  I’ll believe it when I see it.
