Story here.  I wonder what kind of intelligence gathering we are doing in and near Ukraine.  Certainly we have learned that the Russians aren’t the military some thought they were.

Who would have thought there are missile launched torpedoes?  India has them now.

Is it even a weapon?  Sadly, I despair that the US will get serious about military and technology development.

Friend of the blog Jim “X-Acto” Bates recently told me about this story.  I’d like to know more, including whether it was a MiG-21 or MiG-23.  The story says both.  Anyone know?
