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.

Details Emerge on IS Craft Produced Launcher from Mosul Fight

Image
Image from CAR Report. Conflict Armament Research has recently published a short but very comprehensive report detailing the craft produced anti-armor/personal launchers that we reported on in May of 2017. The findings that CAR has come up with are quite revealing about the launchers themselves, in addition to how the terrorist group conducted itself through manufacturing armaments and in utilizing these at the front. I would highly encourage readers to look through the original report, but if you don’t have time, we’ll highight some of the key findings here. The type of ammunition used are mostly 73mm PG-9 rockets, originally intended for the Soviet SPG-9 recoilless rifle. In addition to the PG-9 rockets, there are also PG-7 rockets that were found to be loaded inside the IS launchers. The launchers are single shot use, and can be disposed of. This is because of the complex method of attaching the factory rounds to the inside of the tube. Another important fact about them is that it …

Turkey, Uzbekistan look to boost ties 'in all areas'

Image
Turkey is working with Uzbekistan to enhance bilateral ties in all areas, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday. “We discussed all topics related to Turkey-Uzbekistan -- politics, military, economy, trade, culture, the defense industry -- and what we can do in the process after this. "We found the opportunity to discuss these,” Erdogan said at a joint news conference with his Uzbek counterpart Shavkat Mirziyoyev in capital Tashkent. “We exchanged views on regional and global issues. Last year in October, we brought Turkey-Uzbekistan relations to a strategic partnership on the occasion of my distinguished brother’s visit to my country with his family. “In our meeting today, we have taken steps to strengthen the infrastructure of our strategic partnership.” The presidents signed agreements comprising 25 items, which Erdogan regarded as “a beginning of a long journey for Turkey and Uzbekistan”.

8 tactical laser weapons China has recently developed

Image
An Laser Weapon System (LaWS) mounted on the USS Ponce.US Navy
The Pentagon this week claimed two US pilots were injured when military-grade laser pointers were shone into their eyes from China's navy base in Djibouti as the Americans came in to land at the US base.

US officials made a formal diplomatic complaint and demanded Beijing investigate, with the defence department saying there had been similar incidents for weeks at its base in the Horn of Africa nation.
Beijing has denied the allegations.
As part of China's push to modernise its military technology and equipment it has been developing laser weapons - ranging from low-powered tactical beam emitters to a high-energy strategic weapons system. These are some of the latest tactical laser weapons China has revealed in recent years.

Türkiye’nin geliştirdiği ve seri üretimine hazırlandığı Altay tankını değerlendiren uzmanlar, tank projesinde yeni çözümlerin olmamasının yanı sıra Ankara’nın kendi tankını geliştirmesinin imaja yönelik iyi bir hamle ve yerli savunma sanayiinin gelişimine destek olduğunu belirtti.
Russia Today (RT) okurları için Altay tankının güçlü ve zayıf yanlarını değerlendirdi. Defense News’un haberine göre Ankara’nın geliştirdiği Altay tankının seri üretimini Katar-Türk ortak girişimi olan BMC şirketi üstlenecek.

1 in 10 German military pilots lost helicopter licenses for lack of flight time

Image
More than one-in-10 helicopter pilots in the Bundeswehr lost their flying license in 2017 because they could not absolve the required amount of flight time, the government said on Thursday. The Defense Ministry released the figures in a response to a parliamentary inquiry by Green Party lawmaker Agnieszka Brugger. In its response, the ministry said 19 out of 129 helicopter pilots lost their license in 2017 because of insufficient flight time, while 12 out of 135 pilots lost their license for the same reason in 2016. The Bundeswehr was able to redistribute the licenses after the pilots completed additional training programs, it added. Watch video42:38 Civilians to the rescue Brugger blamed the failure for some pilots to meet the necessary number of flight hours on a lack of working helicopters. "Not even a third of the most important types of helicopters are fit for service," she told the dpa news agency. Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen, Brugger added, was not "gett…

Drone 'swarm' buzzed off FBI surveillance bods, says tech bloke

Image
An American government employee has publicly claimed that a criminal gang used a swarm of drones to fend off an FBI raid. Joe Mazel, the chief of the American Federal Bureau of Investigation’s operational technology law unit, told the AUVSI Xponential conference in Colorado, USA, that a hostage rescue team were driven out of an observation post after a series of “high-speed low passes” by small drones. Though Mazel refused to say when or where this incident took place, as reported by American website Defense One, he did say in general terms that criminal gangs are starting to exploit the potential of small camera-equipped drones for counter-surveillance operations. “They had people fly their own drones up and put the footage to YouTube so that the guys who had cellular access could go to the YouTube site and pull down the video,” said Mazel. It seems unlikely that a true drone swarm was involved; the term generally refers to a number of small remote-controlled aircraft under the cont…

Pentagon taps AI-based self-driving vehicles to reduce field casualties

Image
Speaking on Capitol Hill, US secretary of defense Michael Griffin recently stated that AI-based self-driving vehicles would likely be used by the army before autonomous cars start roaming America’s streets. According to Griffin, AI-powered self-driving vehicles could play a role in reducing casualties in combat zones, considering that a significant number of injuries and fatalities are attributed to military personnel who are tasked with the delivery of fuel, food, and equipment. Thus, Griffin noted, removing the human factor from the equation could immediately make the logistics of battlefields less risky for military personnel, according to an Automotive News report. The Pentagon official further noted that the technology required for the military’s autonomous vehicles will likely require a simple AI diving algorithm, which makes self-driving vehicles an even more attractive option for the US Army. “We’re going to have self-driving vehicles in theater for the Army before we’ll have sel…

Russia cuts military spending for first time over past 19 years - report

Image
Russia reduced its military spending last year for the first time since 1998, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said in its report. "Russia’s military spending fell by 20 per cent to $66.3 billion, making it the fourth largest spender," the document said. "The Russian economy has suffered a number of setbacks since 2014, including a significant drop in oil export revenues, and government spending has been falling since then. However, military spending kept increasing until 2017, when it fell for the first time since 1998." "The fall in spending in 2017 brought the military burden down to 4.3 per cent of GDP, from 5.5 per cent in 2016. However, this share of GDP was still higher than any other European country had recorded since 2011," the report said. World military expenditure reached $1739 bln in 2017, the highest level since the end of the Cold War. The United States remained a global leader in military spending ($610 bln), …
