Last night on 60 Minutes I watched Jeff Bezos, the creator or Amazon, “unveil” their new concept for drone delivery. Yes you heard right, DRONE DELIVERY. He says it could be ready for prime time in a few years. Are you … Read the rest of this entry
I have been fascinated with the Russian Akula class nuclear ballistic missile submarine, NATO code name TYPHOON, for as long as I can remember. Maybe it is because its likeness was featured in “The Hunt For The Red October,” or maybe because … Read the rest of this entry
It is amazing how the frequency of the detonations corresponds with unique geo-political occurrences in modern world history. It is also freaky as hell that mankind has lit off so many of these super-weapons over the last half century and change…
Lockheed’s new low observable LRASM (Long Range Anti Ship Missile) is a cousin of JASSM will replace the AGM-84 Harpoon series as the Navy’s go-to anti-ship missile system. This video is basically all you get to know about LRASM, but in it you will see its most prominent feature is that it … Read the rest of this entry

A good contact of mine spotted the innovative, and arguably more relevant than ever, Scaled Composites Agile Responsive Effective Support (ARES) demonstrator taxing out of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s “Vulcan Air” Hangar at Boeing Field last week. There is not doubt that … Read the rest of this entry
Hey guys, I wanted to post this earlier but the site was migrating to a new server and I could not log on. I think this video is great, it really proves what makes this place special. Sure there are ignorant fools in any community, … Read the rest of this entry
I have had so many videos sent into me over the last few months that I think I have to post at least a few of the best. Three F-35s working behind a KC-130: 36th FS glory over South Korea … Read the rest of this entry
Another sign of the times. The Red Dragon rises while Uncle Sam feeds his shopping addiction and applies for more credit cards. Sad.
Sometimes I am just amazed with how much infrastructure surrounds the US defense research and development apparatus. All the bases, all the test and evaluation units, all the ranges and state of the art facilities. Still, the Missile Engagement Simulation Arena (MESA), one … Read the rest of this entry
