The USAF is looking to equip F-15s with laser weapons.  Story here.  Interesting if they can do it.

Air Force PR

The Air Force is drawing back big on outreach while it retrains its PR operations.  IMHO, in my opinion it isn’t a good sign that they are spending this much time on bureaucracy.

The USAF is reemphasizing the military theatre of space operation.  Clearly if the balloon goes up, space will be a decisive area of operations and it looks like the USAF is coming to realize it.  Story here.

I am a huge F-106 fan.  Looks like Trumpeter is ready to release their two seat F-106B.  I can’t wait.

Su-57 combat deployment

It appears that Russia has deployed a couple of Su-57s to Syria for combat operational testing.  Russia appears to be using Syria as a testing ground, much like Germany and Italy did in Spain.  While the Su-57 won’t make much of a difference in ground attack operations, it is something that the US clearly has to consider their presence when operating strike aircraft over Syria.  This area is getting more tense every day.

An interesting report on a recent UFO encounter that prompted an F-15 scramble.  I wonder what it was?

The Kinetic C-17 is in the CAD stage.  I know this kit will not be cheap, but I want at least one.

More A-10 news

The USAF continues to resist keeping the A-10 in service.  The games that they are playing are costing taxpayers millions.

Does it already exist?  I’ve thought given all the rumors that it probably does.
