shalder. In 97 I was in Bahrain (supporting Nimrod and VC10 at Muharraq) over the Christmas period. HMS Illustrious called in to Sitra for a few days for crew change and Logs Support. I was one of the POCs for Out of Hours issues (like drunken sailors "liberating" a 6' plastic Donald Duck from outside a store!). I was "rewarded" with a trip to the CPOs mess for drinkies and a tour of the ship. Fortunately the tour was done with before we hit the Bar as I dont remember much after that! I do recall that the hanger space was smaller than I thought, but it could be fully flooded within 5 mins with sea water in case of fire/explosion........It was a great experience

UK MoD orders over 500 Boxers Delivery is expected to start in 2023, and most of the vehicles for the British Army will be produced in the UK, principally at plants operated by Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL) and KMW’s subsidiary WFEL (www.wfel.com). This order marks the return of the UK to a European defence programme, having taken part in the Boxer project when it was still in its infancy. Boxer is now on its way to becoming one of NATO’s standard vehicles. httPs://www.machinery-market.co.uk/news/25528/UK-MoD-orders-over-500-Boxers

Been a long time coming and more than once looked like it would never happen: lovely photos. In my youth I was with one of the companies bidding for the CVA-01 carrier to replace Ark Royal when the project was cancelled by the Wilson government in 1966. fwiw its kind of interesting that despite all the technology changes in half a century, the new ships are approx the same size as the CVA- 01 designs.

Following on from post 2400..... The US Air Force wants to network all its weapons together. Will simulators be included? As part of that initiative, it will also be critical for the military to link together simulators so service members can replicate combat on a massive scale....... htTps://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/itsec/2019/12/03/the-us-air-force-wants-to-network-all-its-weapons-together-will-simulators-be-included/

BAE Systems selected by DARPA to create autonomy software for multi-domain mission planning BAE Systems has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop software that will enable semi-autonomous multi-domain mission planning. The technology will be designed for military operators to leverage battlespace resources from across various domains, such as space, air, land, and sea, for more effective, efficient missions. httPs://www.baesystems.com/en/article/bae-systems-selected-by-darpa-to-create-autonomy-software-for-multi-domain-mission-planning

Britain’s defense ties to the EU are still up in the air post-Brexit ........ Speaking at the sidelines of the annual European Defence Agency conference in Brussels on Thursday, Bauer said, “Remember, from a military point of view, the UK, even after Brexit, will still be a member of NATO and part of Europe. It is leaving the EU, not Europe. If the focus in Europe is on security then the UK should be part of that. To do otherwise would be stupid.” htTps://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2019/11/29/britains-defense-ties-to-the-eu-are-still-up-in-the-air-post-brexit/

UK would be 'outgunned' in Russia conflict - think-tank British ground forces would be "comprehensively outgunned" in a conflict with Russia in Eastern Europe, according to a defence think-tank. Research by the Royal United Services Institute (Rusi) found that the Army, as well as Nato allies, has a "critical shortage" of artillery and ammunition. It concluded that it could not maintain a credible defence position. hTtps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50567271

MBDA Mistral 3 missile goes through testing “The Mistral 3 missile, currently in service with the French forces, is an air defence missile equipped with an infrared imaging seeker and advanced image processing capabilities. This allows it to engage low thermal signature targets such as: UAVs, turbojet-powered missiles and fast craft at long range, while offering excellent resistance to countermeasures. Representatives of 15 foreign delegations present for the firing also took part in workshops designed to demonstrate the capabilities of the MISTRAL system in an anti-drone role.” hTtps://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/mbda-mistral-3-missile-goes-through-testing/
