Under the circumstances it’s best to say nothing. People don’t need to know how effective our defensive measures are. People also don’t need to know whether or not their missile worked as advertised.
Probably Iranian QC. They produce the “Noor” missile which is a reverse engineered version of the export variant of the Chinese YJ-82. Though it could be the export version of the YJ-82. I don’t remember how many, but China sold dozens to Iran in the late 90s.
Aye. I heard it was a “Noor”. Same difference.
Exactly. CWIS is the absolute last line of defense. You don’t want to see it used. Many of these newer ASMs would still pepper a ship with shrapnel after being hit by CWIS.
This is about the tenth time one of the Jalopnik guys has had to be corrected on that issue. You’d think they’d figure it out...
You’re a knob. ISIL has acquired very little in Syria and what they do have was stolen or captured. They got some larger systems in Iraq (HMMWV, towed artillery, some tanks, etc) but It’s not like they got them from us. If we give or sell equipment to someone it’s not on us what they do with it. If it is, Russia and… Read more
I do the same thing but with .50 cal, 25mm, and 30mm. Then I pull out the bullet, powder, and primer before cutting out a notch and replacing the bullet. I give them away as bottle cap openers. People love ‘em.
Don’t know the answer to your question, but that’s not really what they’re envisioning (atm). Cutting a small hole in things like missiles and airplanes works wonders. Same goes for sensors, communications equipment, etc.
You’re right. Since the inception of time NOBODY has ever been interested in increasing military capabilities. That’s never been a thing. Why should I use a steel sword? My bronze one is so damn awesome. Read more
Someone more knowledgeable may correct me but I’m pretty sure it’s a sequence. It clearly goes pilot, copilot, then both electronic warfare officers.
Exactly, I smell bullshit. To ace your PT test in the 18-22 age group in the Army you have to run 2 miles in under 13 minutes. AKA, you’re really moving. As you said, a jog for anyone touch a 6 min mile. That’s a run. We had some gazelles that could run sub 11 min 2 miles but that’s a 5-5:30 mile. I consistently… Read more
