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.

PLAAF's new helmet-mounted display (HMD) for J-20 pilot

Image
The US F-35 HMD helmet has a price tag of USD400,000, filled with fancy features like a combined noise-canceling headphones, night vision, a forehead-mounted computer, and a projector all into one, while weighting in only 5 lbs. Wonder if PLAAF's new HMD can come close to its US counterpart in term of feature set. Feature comparison aside, one thing close to certain -- the PLAAF won't burn USD400,000 on a helmet.

AIR SUPERIORITY UNDER 2000 FEET: LESSONS FROM WAGING DRONE WARFARE AGAINST ISIL

Image
During my time in Mosul as a member of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division, a remarkably accessible and affordable device arrived on the battlefield. As my battalion helped Iraqi forces retake the city, we encountered some of the first small drones employed in modern conflict. Despite its clear military and technological superiority, the coalition to defeat ISIL in Iraq faltered in the face of devices that a 20-year-old with no formal military experience could easily obtain on Amazon. These cheap and easy-to-use devices, previously little more than toys, herald a democratization of technology on the battlefield that will change the way nations contend with adversaries.



Iraqi officers had previously reported observing drones, or unmanned aerial systems, overhead, but there was no apparent purpose for the aircrafts’ flights, and the Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service didn’t feel urgency to address the potential threat. Two events abruptly altered the way Iraq’s most …

Drones could have a big role to play in the future of freight transport

Image
The last few years have seen drones become an increasingly common sight in our skies. Today, they're piloted by a range of users, from amateur enthusiasts and pizza delivery companies to the military. In Spain, one business wants to use drones to make air cargo more efficient. Singular Aircraft has developed the Flyox I, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can undertake a range of tasks, from agricultural work and goods transport to firefighting, surveillance and search and rescue. Operated remotely, the vehicle can carry 1,850 kilograms of payload and has been designed to be adaptable. "We have to deal with any type of landing surfaces, that's why it's amphibious (and) we can land on skis on the ice and snow," Luis Carillo, Singular Aircraft's owner, told CNBC's "Sustainable Energy." "We can land on unprepared surfaces and the plane is able to cope with that type of operation." Air travel is an integral part of modern life, but it …

US Air Force Small Arms Update

Image
During the recent NDIA Armaments Forum in Indianapolis, the Air Force Security Force Center’s Col Enrico Vendetti addressed the audience on the USAF’s small arms program. Essentially, the Air Force follows the lead of other services for many small arms programs. For instance, they are participating in both Modular Handgun System and Next Generation Squad Automatic Rifle. However, there are times when the Air Force will develop unique capabilities. Col Vendetti briefed these three examples. Remotely Operated Weapons
As the Air Force adapts to new ways of projecting Air Power, its Security Forces must develop new ways to protect aircraft and other critical assets in austere environments just as well as it does at fixed bases. Additionally, those long established facilities continue to face new threats. These operational concepts are known as Distributed Operations and Adaptive Basing. Security Force’s goal with this program is limit exposure to enemy fire and provide effects they’ve nev…

12 Reasons Turkey Should Be Expelled From NATO

Image
Turkey’s acceptance to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in October 1951 was a boon for the organization. Though its human rights record was far from stellar, it was staunchly anti-Communist, maintained a formidable army, was amenable to the placement of NATO assets in the country, including nuclear-tipped Jupiter ballistic missiles and was strategically located, flanking the Soviet Union on the south and acting as a bridge between Europe and Asia. Though Turkey was technically a Muslim country, it leaders, following the doctrines espoused by Kamal Ataturk, zealously guarded the secular nature of the state. Religious influence was kept to a minimum and this was especially true for government officials and parliamentarians. Indeed, there was a significant Jewish population in Turkey and Turkey was the first Muslim majority nation to recognize Israel, extending recognition in March 1949. During the Korean War, Turkey sent a sizable contingent to fight alongside the United States-l…

A New Battleship for the Navy? Why This Could Be China's Biggest Military Nightmare

Image
The U.S. Navy certainly needs the firepower provided by its awesome carrier strike groups and its flimsy, but nonetheless formidable, guided missile destroyers. But it also needs ships that can take a punch and keep on sailing. That kind of toughness is likely to become an even more important quality as China develops its precision strike capacities. Soon it may become too dangerous to sail an unarmored ship in the South China Sea. Stealth is one way to keep from getting hit, and the United States leads the way in the development of stealthy destroyers. But stealth defeats the purpose of a FONOP, which is to be seen. An old-fashioned battleship is a ship to be seen—and in a big way. But there's no need for the Navy to build an old-fashioned battleship in the twenty-first century when it can build a new-fashioned battleship instead. A contemporary battleship would combine advanced armor materials with automated damage control to produce a ship that is virtually unsinkable. Its off…

Russian Navy to get Poseidon nuclear underwater drones by 2027

Image
MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. The Russian Navy will get the Poseidon nuclear-armed unmanned underwater vehicles as part of the current State Armament Program for 2018-2027, a source in the military-industrial complex told TASS. "The Poseidon system has been included in the State Armament Program until 2027 and is due to come operational within the Navy before the end of the program. It includes several high-speed deep-water torpedoes with a small nuclear powered unit," he said. TASS has no official confirmation of the information provided by the source. TASS

UK has sold $1bn of weapons to Turkey since coup attempt

Image
LONDON - Theresa May is set to roll out the red carpet for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan this weekend, as new figures reveal that Britain has sold more than $1bn of weapons to Ankara since the failed 2016 coup and subsequent crackdown under emergency powers, Middle East Eye can reveal. Turkey remains a "priority market" for British weapons, despite concerns from human rights groups and EU officials over the erosion of the country's rule of law. Turkey is a fellow member of NATO and has cooperated with the EU in tackling the refugee crisis, but critics say that Erdogan's government has arrested or sacked more than 100,000 state workers and members of the military in the wake of the coup attempt. Unlike many other Western allies, London spoke out quickly after the coup, which saw fighter jets bomb the Turkish parliament and troops open fire on civilians. But the UK has remained largely silent as Turkey targeted not only the alleged plotters but also political d…

F-22s & F-35s Will Launch Recoverable Gremlins Attack Drones

Image
DARPA's Gremlins Program Will Launch and Recover 4 Gremlins Drones from a C-130



US Air Force F-22s and F-35s will soon launch and control recoverable attack drones from the cockpit of the plane to expand air-combat operations, test enemy air defenses, conduct long-range ISR and even deliver weapons.



This fast-approaching technology, which calls upon advanced levels of autonomous navigation, is closer to reality due of DARPA’s Gremlins program which plans to break new ground by launching – and recovering – four drones from an in-flight C-130 next year.


Air recoverable drones, slated to become operational over just the next few years, will bring a new phase of mission options enabling longer ranges, improved sensor payloads, advanced weapons and active command and control from the air.


“The team looked at how fifth generation aircraft systems like the F-35 and F-22 respond to threats, and how they could incorporate Gremlins in higher risk areas,” a DARPA statement said.


For years, it has…
