  1. Not too familiar with this round, but it sounds like one of history's classics. Anybody know what was the last country to use it in a military capacity? https://gundigest.com/gear-ammo/ammunition/the-game-changing-7mm-mauser?fbclid=IwAR1YnZ6sQ3urvi0X1EJRwCSM0vnW1Fhl3gwJEuh_8Q9g3X7uLNf8HZysnII
  2. Would France be financially able to go it alone? https://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2021/03/05/dassault-boss-trappier-floats-plan-b-considerations-for-the-troubled-fcas-warplane/
  3. Whatever it's faults, this new frigate does appear to be well armed.
  4. I would think that some weight and cost growth would be expected to some degree: https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2021/02/26/canadas-new-frigate-is-getting-heavier-more-expensive/
  5. You know you've arrived when your gun is assigned a NSN.
  6. This is the first handgun from Montenegro that I've heard of, and apparently has been on the US market for some years now. Is this another Glock knockoff? https://www.tara-aerospace.com/datasheets/datasheet_TM-9.pdf
  7. I'm sure that nobody would have predicted this: https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/1-negotiations-franco-german-fighter-160249656.html
  8. Heck, just apply the "F-21" designation to a new F-16V and people will think it's an all new whiz-bang aircraft https://www.lockheedmartin.com/en-us/products/f-21.html
  9. I guess the blocky, squared-off look must be in nowadays: https://waltherarms.com/pdp/
  10. Does a competitor have any features/capabilities that make it stand out from the other? https://www.janes.com/defence-news/news-detail/shortlisted-contenders-deliver-prototype-test-and-evaluation-platforms-for-australian-ifv-requirement
  11. Wonder if the "EX" designator will be used in USAF service, or the next letter in line (F-15F?).
  12. Presumably, F-15EX sustainment costs will be lower then those of the F-35. Especially since some of the existing F-15 infrastructure can be used (to some extent, anyway).
  13. True. The USAF should be flying the Airbus KC-45 by now since it was their original selection.
  14. I believe Boeing is into the KC-46 for $5 billion out of their own pocket (so far) for fixing the issues.
  15. When I first heard of this aircraft I was skeptical that it would survive Congress and the budget. Looks like it's on the way, though. Should be a useful addition to the USAF's arsenal. Boeing’s F-15EX jet makes its first flight (defensenews.com)
