  1. The US, Russia, China and India all have mature ASAT capability. I just read this week that Israel may of tested an ASAT direct assent missile as well.
  2. Farming is heavily mechanized thus less labour is needed. Up to Brexit the manual labour was from foreign labour, now that we have left the EU, farmers are complaining about labour shortages and demanding we re-open our borders again. I'm glad that Boris Johnson has refused the farmers demands. EDIT: Also now that were no longer in the EU we don't get EU farming subsidiaries but the government is said to be bringing in a similar funding scheme.
  3. I've never met a poor farmer.
  4. No matter what happens in Ukraine I doubt Russia will give them back the Crimea.
  5. A great Rand report on a potential Chyna / Taiwan aerial conflict as a prelude to invasion although it is 5 years old. https://www.rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/research_reports/RR1000/RR1051/RAND_RR1051.pdf
  6. It reminds me of Brandon Lee when he was shot whilst filming The Crow.
  7. After a quick look at wikipedia, your right.
  8. Can you give me more information on that Futon?
  9. To say that Russia does not have a technical advantage in hypersonics reminds me of anti-vax’s denial of covid 19. You’ve got your head in the sand if you do that. Russian technology is not always inferior to American technology, I’ll still state that Russia has a massive lead on hypersonics. It all goes back to the club anti ship missile from the 1990’s which had a supersonic final sprint mode. The Russian’s have improved on this missile wiliest the west didn't keep up in technology. Until the US or other western countries field a production hypersonic missile rather than blue sky research like the CPS program. Only then will I eat my hat.

  10. Iran already produces a number of clones of foreign air defence equipment including ... S300 clone https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bavar-373 IHawk clone 'Shahin' and MANPAD Misagh 1 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misagh-2 ... amongst others. Most of these systems are clones of other systems or perhaps systems developed with the help of foreign technical experts not offically sanctioned by there governments. Although probably not up to the capabilities of Western or Russian (which produce the best GBAD's systems in the world) they can still cause aircraft attritional losses and complicate aircraft freedom of maneuver which is a prime reason for GBAD existence.
  11. Iran has a well developed national defence industry so it maybe just sub components not fully developed platforms. I doubt aircraft will be procured. The Revolutionary Guard has a hatred for the air force that goes back decades to the time of the Shar. When he built up a massive air force in what one US politician said 'Was the largest build up of an air force in peace time than of any nation the in history of the world'.
  12. I wonder then if Germany or France will sell submarines to Taiwan then. In the past they haven't due to Chinese pressure.
