It is vaporware for the moment.  Given the financial situation in Russia, color me skeptical that it will see the light of day anytime soon.

or should the fact there was a small explosion in Russia involving a release of radiation be a bigger deal? WTF?

 

UPDATE:  Here is a much more detailed analysis of what we know or think we know.

No, I am not talking about the weather.  South Korea firing warning shots at the Russians.  Yeah, what the hell, that is going to end well.

Russia, which readers know I think is a impotent force as far as its military goes, has unveiled a new aircraft carrier design.  As the article points out, the design will most likely never be built and Russia’s one and only carrier is out of commission and probably headed for scrapping.  Russia’s 2017 GDP was $1.58 trillion dollars, which is less than Canada’s $1.6 trillion and paltry compared to the USA’s $22 trillion.  Russia simply can’t keep a world class military going, and what they have is simply wasting away.

The Russians have experienced some sort of submarine fire.  Also, in completely unrelated news, the Vice President dropped out of a scheduled event to rush back to the White House, Putin also altered his scheduled appearances for the day, and the EU security council has gone into emergency session.

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

Oops

Looks like one of the Syrian SAMs might have gotten a little lost.  Luckily no one got hurt.  I can easily see one of these either hitting an airliner or impacting in a populated area.
