      the equipment for saving the life and health of the American military is excellent (but still it is secondary)
      I'm more interested in what this detachment is doing in this area - what are its goals and objectives.
      What is the task posed to the F18 Pilot aircraft — as I understand it, the scenario of a possible attack on objects in SYRIA or IRAN is being worked out.

I always appreciated your technical knowledge. I am waiting for an article or a translation. And about flying hospitals also !

            At the expense of today's mosaic format, if the administration does not mind, then I will try to do it once a week or two, you need to know what they (the USA) are doing there.

          and what is your goal. to convey to us that you are a fan of America and a democratic, universal human way of life? and in general, America is building only good peaceful weapons, and the insidious Russia (Putin) wants to seize the world together with China and establish a totalitarian regime in it. I officially inform you that I learned about lifts for difficult terrain. the goal is reached, you can go home to the usa, the protector of the Americans.

              I agree, the Professor does not say any sedition, so why vent your anger on him? It is interesting to read articles and notes of the Professor, which cannot be said about some of our respondents. Completely driven into gray tones. Well, if the Professor was an agent of influence, as many believe, he would have acted much more cunningly, we would never have guessed about the authorship of the records. So I urge members of the forum to be more objective in their assessments.

            So far you have only learned such a word, but I’ll write an article about them (and now I’ll write it for sure) then you can also learn it. Do not forget to prepare properly with criticism of the Swedish and American container lifts for difficult terrain, such as all this bullshit, for cutting money, nobody needs it, etc., etc. wink

But essentially what is your article about? a set of photos from an American military magazine about how John Smith looks from one company to another. boys and girls sit on the deck and breathlessly look at the salute. An incoherent set of pictures and all this in the context of the fact that America brings light to the world. and you are undoubtedly trying to convey this very light to the ignorant with your unique genius. article about lifts will also be in the form of comics?

        according to the charter, it is strictly forbidden to be on deck, and during rocket firing, and even with your camera.

        But in one of the photos, it’s just the case when many of the crew with a camera during the shooting with the EM URO Mustin (DDG 89) of the Arleigh Burke class may have this not so categorically ... Fuck knows.

    I didn’t find a ship laser, maybe the only military ship in Russia can be the Ship, and the ship was a merchant. But there was the Aquilon ship complex of the 80s of development, the A-60 aviation complex of 81 years, and the “Compression” ground complex as in the picture

    Ignorance is of two types: “all our best and foreign is shameful” and “all our main and foreign is super” and I don’t even know which is worse

      You will not find either one or the other. I try to be objective, although I have a "favorite technique" such as the Ka-52 helicopter and Bill-2 ATGM.

    It’s difficult to be objective, we are not robots, it’s upsetting me to have good experience in the Soviet Union on drones. having a squadron of drones as part of the ground forces all merged and now buy them in Israel. (Well, maybe developed at least by former compatriots)

      In the USSR, UAVs did not really apply and did not learn. It seems that 10 years of the war in Afghanistan should have become a springboard for such funds, but to see the General Staff did not see the potential of the UAV. Regarding former Soviet specialists and Israeli UAVs, this is not at all the case. Look at the chronology of events and the faculty of the Faculty of Aeronautics at the Technion.

    Not forging yourself. It turns out that the US armed forces and warrant officers are available.
    Do you have any supplies there?

    Well, just figure out how they will fight the Russian Federation. Something more and more resembles Andrei Sergeevich Zavadsky "Day of the invasion." It was after this book that I climbed to find out how we can respond to the amers, if they climb to us. The book is purely for those who are sure that we are still strong and can pile on everyone, it makes us think.
