Video of Russian anti-ship missile test.  What I noticed is all the hits seem to be high up on the superstructures.  Interesting video.

Fascinating.  I would have never even thought this might be a possibility.

The DDG-1000 program (the stealth destroyer) has been a money pit for the Navy.  If the armed forces want more money, they need to eliminate crap like this.

The Germans are not serious about defending themselves and we shouldn’t be doing it for them.

Stuff like this needs to stop happening.  The Navy needs a bigger fleet and things like this will sour the public on that idea.

Not the WWII kind.  Looks like the Japanese are ready to admit what everyone knew.  Their new Helicopter carriers are going to become full-fledged STOVL carriers. I see some F-35B sales in Japan’s future.

This is now a regular occurrence. Not sure the Chinese really care since the islands are already a reality.
