While I’ve mainly been focused on the South China Sea as a potential flashpoint, it appears things are heating up in the gulf of Oman.  First, several Saudi tankers were sabotaged.  Then some Iranian boats caught fire. Now two tankers have been attacked.  This could get real hot, real fast.

Sword recently released a new kit of the F3H Demon.  Tommy Thomason over on his Tailhook Topics blog has a great review of the kit.  I picked this one up at the LHS recently.

More unmanned ships for the USN.

Revival of the VPB using B-1s

Stories like this give me some hope that the USN is thinking out of the box and won’t get caught equipping itself to fight the last war.
