          not everything is fine in china. the Japanese lost parts of the islands. part of the territory under the bases of the usa. for war you need a place for maneuver. and he is not. shoot and get? samurai were. but not in bulk. and suicides even less. doubtful. but friends can force them. hi

      Well, they definitely won’t get to Dombarovsky ...
      But the hongfuzs sadness will definitely add. So they can be safely considered as an antidote from DF-21D ...

      Until the owner changes, you can’t retrain the samurai!
      Again, the "northern territories" ... dream in a dream ... No, you should not count on reconciliation: they will never give up their claims ...

    So hit or not? Or as the last time - "passed at a given distance from the object of attack ..."
    These interceptors DO NOT HAVE AN EARNINGS, so only a DIRECT hit is counted. wassat

      The network has a video of launching a rocket from an American ship in the Pacific. The missile was hit by a conditional target that a ballistic missile took upon itself.

        they didn’t show pro, maybe for them the success was in that the target was captured and the rocket went, and the accuracy will continue to work out

    Nothing is said about a missile hit. The inscription on the market is interesting "do not turn in the ship." lol

      And the “boat” is interesting: “USS John Paul Jones (DDG-53) is the third destroyer of the Arly Burke type URO destroyer and the first ship of this type to serve in the US Pacific Fleet. Built at the Bath Iron Works shipyard, assigned to the marine station San Diego, California.
      The destroyer John Paul Jones is named after the English captain John Paul Jones, a hero of the War of Independence, for some time. held in Russian service.

        "April 23, 1788 John Paul Jones arrived in St. Petersburg. From the hands of Catherine II, he received a patent for the rank of rear admiral with her own signature, but in the name of Pavel Jones. John, however, voiced a demand to remain an American citizen and officer. his command of 5 battleships (from 60 to 80 cannons) and 8 frigates, on the flagship battleship Saint Vladimir, John fought against the Turks on the Dnieper-Bug estuary along with the head of the Dnieper rowing flotilla Prince Karl Heinrich Nassau-Siegen. Together they defeated Turkish fleet near Ochakov. "
