    Australia to decommission Armidale-class boat after 14-year service

    That would be awesome, quite enjoyed both the early series and the later one. Can you imagine the RCN and the PAO's giving that sort of Access to the Kingstons or AOP's?

    28 Palestinians killed in Gaza as Israel hits Hamas with airstrikes; rockets kill 3 Israelis

    Also the IDF has turned to using semi-auto .22's to injury rioters in the leg, avoiding the calls for vengeance and condemnation for killing 16 year sacrificial lambs (as in kids). Also welcome to pallywood

    28 Palestinians killed in Gaza as Israel hits Hamas with airstrikes; rockets kill 3 Israelis

    Demographics loom large in this area, it plays a major geopolitics role since 1948 and go back to the Roman occupation of Judea. Both side stretch the truth, the Palestinian more so than the Israelis. The difference being a Israeli can argue on behalf of the Palestinians without fear, whereas...

    28 Palestinians killed in Gaza as Israel hits Hamas with airstrikes; rockets kill 3 Israelis

    Youth are generally attracted to what they perceive as underdogs, that's a natural starting point to a worldly education. The palestinians have pretty much shot themselves in the foot with every major Arab nation, who have grown tired of their failure to create a future with what they have...

    28 Palestinians killed in Gaza as Israel hits Hamas with airstrikes; rockets kill 3 Israelis

    Pretty typical, Hamas does not value live Palestinians, they are worth more dead. So Arabs have dryly calculated that one is Israeli is worth 6 Palestinians to Hamas and the other Arab leaders. When i posted about the Chinese rocket falling to earth, my Israeli friend said "please that's just a...

    Future Naval platforms, systems, & fleet composition

    Mind you had the Belgrano escorts prosecuted their roles more effectively, that shot might not have happened. Had the Belgrano made it to Stanley, the conflict might have ended in a stalemate for both sides. A mix of subs, surface ships and long range aircraft that can provide ASW and ECM is...

    Future Naval platforms, systems, & fleet composition

    and China likley has portions of it`s fishing fleet already equipped for ECM warfare and likely a small number equipped with or fitted for Anti-ship missile with the intent of targeting the support fleet. Not to mention mine laying.

    Ad in Aussie newspaper: Tired of the heat? Tired of everything in your yard trying to kill you? Tired of driving on the wrong side of the road? Do you want to: Barbecue moose meat? Drink beer as good or better than yours? Drive on the right side of the road? Be able to visit another country...

    Replacing the Subs

    I think next Apr 1st I will dress up in a Naval Officers uniform and go to the Esquimalt Canadian tire and ask for 500 lead acid batteries for our sub. That should be good for a laugh...

    Replacing the Subs

    It will be a short war with a lot of ships sunk on both sides and the rest heading back to port as everyone is out of missiles and there will be no reloads waiting for them. Then the subs have a field day as they will have at least one set of reloads per sub.
