Η Ρωσία ξαναβάζει σε παραγωγή το βομβαρδιστικό Tu-160

Ο Ρωσος πτέραρχος ανακοινωσε ότι η επανεκίνηση παραγωγής του Ty-160M (NATO Tu-160M BlackJack)θα συνέχιστεί κι αυτο δεν προκειται να καθυστερησει το επόμενο στελθ βομβαρδιστικό PAK DA που ετοιμάζει.
Ο Πούτιν αργά αλλά σταθερά βάζει ξανά την Ρωσία στο παγκόσμιο χάρτη, αλλά για να γίνει αυτό χρειάζεται νεα κι αξιόπιστα βομβαρδιστικά μακράς ακτίνας επειγόντως.

The U.S. military’s fight against the Islamic State is costing an average of $11 million a day


The Defense Department spent more than $5 billion on operations related to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, an average of $11 million a day, between September 2014 and the end of last month, the Pentagon reported Monday.
Slightly more than half of the $5.36 billion total went to daily air operations, with $1.26 billion spent on “munitions.” Most of the rest went to “mission support,” including logistics and military pay.

Study: US needs more subs, fewer carriers to combat Chinese military growth

Study: US needs more subs, fewer carriers to combat Chinese military growth

Faced with China’s growing anti-surface ship capacity, the United States should decrease its emphasis on large aircraft carriers in the Pacific and spend more on submarines, space capabilities and ways to make air bases and aircraft less vulnerable, according to a report released earlier this month by Rand Corp.
In the 430-page report, the Santa Monica, Calif.-based think tank analyzed the relative military capabilities of the U.S. and China in certain scenarios based on open-source documents. The analysis makes comparisons using 10 “scorecards” covering air, maritime, space, cyber and nuclear domains.
Capabilities were examined at seven-year intervals, beginning in 1996 and projecting to 2017, considering two “plausible” scenarios of conflict between the two countries: a Chinese invasion of Taiwan and its forcible occupation of the Spratly Islands. China claims sovereignty over both.

Need to know, 2016: Fighting ISIS and in Afghanistan

No peace is in sight in Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan in 2016, so airmen will continue to put warheads on foreheads.
The air war against the Islamic State group is expected to last for years, but the head of U.S. Air Forces Central Command expects U.S. and coalition air power to do significant damage to the group in 2016.
“By the time we get to the end of 2016, I hope to be pretty well done with Daesh [the Islamic State group],”said Lt. Gen. Charles Brown Jr. “That’s probably aspirational, but I think we are putting pressure on Daesh.”
In November, the U.S. ramped up airstrikes in both Iraq and Syria to support Iraqi and Kurdish forces in Sinjar and Ramadi in Iraq and al-Hawl in Syria, Brown told Air Force Times in a Nov. 25 interview. The strategy against the Islamic State group now involves attacking tankers that carry the oil that the Islamic State sells.
On a rare visit to the Pentagon Dec. 14, Obama reiterated that his administration remains focused on fighting ISIS on multiple fronts, but revealed little new information about his strategy.

As military handles drone strikes, less scrutiny by Congre

As military handles drone strikes, less scrutiny by Congress


WASHINGTON — Putting the U.S. military in charge of drone strikes in Iraq and Syria has effectively reduced congressional scrutiny of those sensitive operations, leaving some activists, lawmakers and U.S. intelligence officials fearful of increased civilian casualties.
For the last decade, the CIA ran the American effort to find and kill al-Qaida members with drones, mostly in Pakistan and Yemen, outside of declared war zones. But the frequency of those strikes has plummeted to about one a month. The main counterterrorism focus now is the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, where military special operations forces are flying drones that hunt and kill a senior militant every two days.
The shift reflects both legal and philosophical considerations. When he announced a framework for targeted killing two years ago, President Barack Obama argued that the military, not a secret intelligence agency, should be the primary instrument of lethal force against terrorists.
