  1. I just saw Michael Caine in 'Tenet' and he seemed to be doing pretty well!
  2. Just finished the first season (8 episodes) of 'La Revolution' on Netflix - horror movie set during the French Revolution period in the 1780s. Kind of a mix of 'The Brotherhood of the Wolf' and 'The Walking Dead' with some 'Fearless Vampire Killers' thrown in. I give it a B-, mainly because I like that period of history and they made good use of the costumes, architecture, technology, etc. of that era. Some decent skirmishes, lots of beheadings, and some voodoo too. But they spend too much time on the social justice theme (I get enough of that on the news), I could see most of the plot

    New NK tank

    I assume those are a pair of ATGMs on the side of the turret, did previous generations of DPRK main battle tanks have the ability to fire gun-launched ATGMs? I thought one of their more recent MBT models had an ATGM launcher mounted on the turret roof, along with MANPADS and a KPV. Also shown in the parade were a couple models of wheeled armored vehicles with multiple ATGM launchers, I think the one with 8 boxed launchers had been seen before.
  4. I just finished 'The Last Narc' miniseries about the 'Kiki' Camarena case (DEA agent that was murdered in Mexico), very disturbing. I was somewhat familiar with the case but the involvement of everyone from the CIA to the upper levels of the Mexican government was laid out very effectively with lots of eyewitness testimony. Chilling. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12163674/
  5. Good article on how the 'Defund the Police' movement in Minneapolis, MN started, went off the tracks, and is now pushed to the back burner. The comments are interesting: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/26/us/politics/minneapolis-defund-police.html

  7. Saw it on Tuesday, if you like over-the-top non-stop violence with no concern for realism, reloading, superhuman healing abilities, crowds of New Yorkers simply walking past furious gun battles, etc. you will like it. Mark Ducascos is great, I have been a fan since 'Brotherhood of the Wolf' - he has some very funny scenes and also a little nod to his Iron Chef days.

  9. Interesting weapon mix, using T-59 chassis: https://www.armyrecognition.com/airshow_china_2018_zhuhai_news_show_daily_coverage/airshow_china_208_new_qn-506_multi-weapon_tracked_armored_vehicle_based_on_type_59_mbt.html
  10. This one? http://www.jedsite.info/afv-papa/papa/puma-ch_series/puma-raketenwerfer/pumarakintro.html
  11. Here is a picture of the triple 370mm recoilless gun referenced earlier. Really curious how that would work and what advantages it would have over a regular MRL or artillery piece. You do have to register though: http://www.china-defense.com/smf/index.php?topic=672.40
  12. I always thought this one was cute, like an American BRDM: http://www.military-today.com/apc/mac_1.htm

  14. I believe South Korea still has them in service, and may be still manufacturing the ammunition (I don't have the latest Jan'es Infantry Weapons handy but I seem to recall seeing it in one of the more recent editions).

    New NK tank

    I was surprised to see those MT-LB, I thought the North Koreans pretty exclusively used their own VTT-323 (and a few BMPs they imported)? Also I thought I saw some other BTR-type vehicles 8x8 with the twin 14.5mm, I am pretty sure the N Koreans got some BTR-80s, did they modify them with that twin 14.5mm turret?
