An interesting article on submarine development and acquisition going on in Asia.  The South China sea may get very interesting.

Maybe.  It only makes sense, and with the South China Sea becoming such a flashpoint, it is unsurprising that Japan and South Korea would feel the need to strengthen their capabilities at sea.

It would probably look like this.  South Korea’s mock-up of their proposed new fighter aircraft, being co-produced with Indonesia.

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.

More Asian carrier development

The F-35B has really changed the game when it comes to smaller navies having carrier capability.  Korea and Japan will both have such capability as soon as they put in orders for the F-35B.  (I have no doubt that they both will)

Looks like the South Koreans are looking to beef up their missile defenses.

Speaking of Korea, looks like North Korea is working hard on submarine launched ballistic missile technology.  Might be why the South wants more THAADS.
