Forget the S-500 or Su-57 PAK-FA. Russia's Military Has Big Plans for the Future.

Russia has started planning for the development of a series of next-generation weapons to follow-on to systems such as the Sukhoi Su-57 PAK-FA and the S-500 surface-to-air missile (SAM) battery. These new systems—which the Russian government has not named—will be developed under future advanced State Armament Program.



“An important and key issue on our agenda is to define the beginning of the creation of yet another advanced state armament program,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a meeting of the Kremlin’s Military Industrial Commission . Putin said that Russia has to start planning for its future defense needs now as it completes developmental programs that were funded under the current State Armament Plan (GPV-2027). “It is important for us to move further and start planning today the future development and production of advanced weapons and equipment that will define the image of the Russian Armed Forces in the long-term, for the next few decades,” Putin said.

Taiwanese President Announces Defense Spending Boost to Counter China

Image
Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen announced on Friday that the military aggression of the mainland has reached new heights and that her country would increase its military spending to meet the intensifying security challenge.

"China's military activities don't only impact the situation in the Taiwan Strait, but also in all of East Asia… This is not a problem being faced alone by Taiwan," Tsai told reporters during a Friday press conference, standing on a stage adorned with two model fighter jets.

"All countries in this region who want to see peace and stability, have a consensus… and China can't ignore this, that cross-strait issues absolutely can't be resolved through military force but through peaceful means," Tsai added.

Russia Opposes Japan's Decision to Deploy Aegis Ashore

Image
Japan’s decision to acquire and deploy U.S.-made Aegis Ashore missile defense installations on its territory has not gone over well in Russia. Tokyo decided last week to deploy two systems to defend against North Korean ballistic missile threats.
According to Maria Zakharova, spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the deployment would lead to a deterioration in bilateral ties between Moscow and Tokyo. Zakharova made the remarks at a weekly press briefing on Thursday.

“Actions like these are in direct contradiction to the priority of building military and political trust between Russia and Japan, and, unfortunately, will impact in a negative way on the whole atmosphere in bilateral relations, including negotiations over the peace treaty problem,” Zakharova remarked.

Bilateral ties between Japan and Russia have been on the mend since Japan joined the Group of Seven in imposing sanctions on Moscow after its 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. Japanese Prime Minister …

Russia accuses US of violating arms treaty

Image
RUSSIA'S deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, today accused the US of violating a key arms treaty by selling a missile defence system to Japan.
"The US is deploying them (missile defence systems) at their military bases in Romania and Poland, that is near our western borders, which goes against the 1987 INF Treaty banning the deployment of such systems on the ground," Ryabkov said in a statement published on the Foreign Ministry's website.

"The fact that such complexes could now appear on Russia's eastern borders creates a situation that we cannot ignore in our military planning," said Ryabkov.

On Thursday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the deployment of the US missile defence system would have a negative impact on relations between Tokyo and Moscow.

"We consider the step made by the Japanese side as going against efforts to ensure peace and stability in the region," Zakharova said, adding that Moscow had "deep regret…

Pentagon Preparing for Shift in Syrian Strategy

Image
The United States is preparing to shift its approach in Syria, pledging to help with the initial recovery following the collapse of the Islamic State's self-declared caliphate.
U.S.-backed forces liberated the terror group’s Syrian capital of Raqqa in October. Since then, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have focused their efforts on eradicating remnants of Islamic State.

But with fewer than 1,000 IS fighters thought to be in areas under SDF control, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the time is right for what he described as “an attempt to move toward normalcy.”

“What we will be doing is shifting from what I call an offensive, terrain-seizing approach,” Mattis told Pentagon reporters Friday. “You'll see more U.S. diplomats on the ground.”

Mattis did not share a timeline for when more diplomats and other civilian personnel would arrive in Syria, and he emphasized that none of the work should be characterized as nation building. VOA has reached out to the State Department f…

This unconventional French helicopter is a certified tank-buster

Image
During the Cold War, the French often opted to pursue their own military designs instead of buying American or Soviet assets. Part of this was due to, well, the French being French. Another reason was they pulled out of the NATO command structure in 1966, though they stayed in the alliance, because Charles de Gaulle felt the French must maintain independence.
As a consequence, France built up a very potent arms industry. The Mirage series of fighters helped Israel win the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War. The Exocet anti-ship missile proved itself a fearsome armament in the Falklands. Another French product, a chopper, which later saw substantial export use, was the Aérospatiale Gazelle.


The Gazelle entered service in 1973 and was quickly purchased by France, the United Kingdom, and a number of other countries. Among those other countries were Syria and Iraq, which used the helicopters in combat.

The Gazelle was retired by the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy, but remains i…

Spain to increase defense budget by more than 80% over the next 6 years

Image
According to the Spanish newspaper El Pais , on Wednesday, December 27, 2017, Spain will increase its military spending by more than 80 percent over the next six years. Spain has spent 0.92% for its defense budget in 2017, one of the lowest spending in the alliance, alongside Belgium and Luxembourg.


In the next few years, Spain will spend 18 billion euros for its defense budget, accounting for between 1.5 and 1.6 percent of its GDP, El Pais newspaper reported. An increase of 80% of the current defense spending of the Spanish government.

The U.S. President Donald Trump has insisted that NATO partners who are not meeting the minimum percentage agreed to within the Atlantic Alliance must increase their defence spending.

The US, UK, Greece, Estonia and Poland are at or above the two per cent mark, while Mattis recently said that he hopes that four other countries will join that group within a year.

In April 2017, it was announced that Spain will acquire 348 Piranha 5 8x8 wheeled armored vehi…

The Incredible B-2 Wing Flutter Video and What It Means

Image
This remarkable video of a Northup Grumman B-2 Spirit stealth bomberundergoing wing flutter testing on June 14, 1995 is fascinating for a number of reasons.
All aircraft wings have a remarkable capacity for flex. But one of the most significant changes in aircraft engineering in the last three decades has been the addition of composite materials, especially carbon fibers, into aircraft structural design. In many cases these composite materials have replaced metal alloys in structural components on advanced aircraft.

The B-2 Spirit is approximately 80% composite, mostly carbon fiber. Some of the structural framework internal to the B-2, especially where the wing blends into the fuselage and the largest fuel tanks are located, is titanium and aluminum. While part of the reason for this is structural, another reason is that composites, being made up of a number of different elements, can have radar absorbent materials included in their manufacture or “lay-up” during the process of combini…

Air Force Taps Firms to Develop Cruise Missile Swarms

Image
The Air Force Research Laboratory has awarded Lockheed Martin Corp. and Northrop Grumman Corp. contracts to develop new, lower-cost cruise missiles capable of flying in swarms to target enemy air defenses.
Lockheed, the world's largest defense contractor, in a release Wednesday announced it received a five-year $110 million contract from the lab to build the "Gray Wolf."

The weapon will be designed with "networked, collaborative behaviors (swarming) to address Integrated Air Defense (IAD) system threats around the world," according to the release.

The Bethesda, Maryland-based company's "concept for the Gray Wolf missile will be an affordable, counter-IAD missile that will operate efficiently in highly contested environments," Hady Mourad, director of the Advanced Missiles Program at the company's Missiles and Fire Control division, said in the release.

New Airplane Design Could Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Image
The craft could save up to 66 percent in fuel and fly by 2035



Airplane emissions are a big problem for the climate—and steadily rising. If the aviation sector were a country, it would rank seventh worldwide in carbon pollution. Experts predict that aircraft emissions, on their current trajectory, will triple by 2050 as demand for flights increases. To prevent this dire scenario, a team of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, along with government and industry collaborators, is attempting to fundamentally redesign airplanes.

Their concept, dubbed the “double-bubble” D8, could significantly reduce aviation’s carbon footprint and improve fuel efficiency if validated in full-scale tests. It entails major changes to the standard 180-passenger Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 aircraft—for example, the fuselage has a wider, more oval shape than a conventional jet. “It’s like two bubbles [joined] side by side,” explains Alejandra Uranga, an assistant professor of aerospace and me…

Is America Prepared to Battle China in an Asymmetric War?

Image
For China, asymmetric warfare represents a tactic with ancient roots that has been successfully applied to the contemporary age. Asymmetric warfare, as seen from Beijing, means using one’s own strengths and capabilities to attack an enemy’s weaknesses. Doing so may involve the use of terrain, tactics, or the application of new or different technologies.
Chinese military thought on asymmetric warfare draws heavily onclassical strategy. The authors ofThe Science ofMilitary Strategy 2013, a leading contemporary military tract,cite Sun Tzu’s directive fromThe Art of Warthat in order to exact many victories, one must use asymmetric means (fei duicheng)with surprising military movements. Sun Tzu cautions that an army should employ a combination of direct, normal offensive and defensive moves, and unusual, unexpected, or sudden surprising moves in order to achieve dominance on the battlefield.

Of particular concern to Chinese planners is the so-called “Taiwan scenario,” in which more powerful…
