      And when you watch videos about the US Army, and then videos released about the Russian Army

      And damn terrible advertising of the Russian Army ((

      That is why it is impossible to create a separate service in the ranks of the army that would deal with the PR of the army, attract the current idols of youth, create patriotic videos, etc.

        In our army, any creative manifestations are contraindicated. Thoughts, views and actions should be extremely straightforward and perpendicular.
        Any reappearance of mind, character and the ability to think outside the box is a point on the military career in the current army.

      When I served and went on live firing and demonstration exercises for the Minister of Defense at the Emba training ground, cameras were strictly prohibited. There are a few pictures, but only in the camp or the steppe, but the combat launches are not. “Zenith - ET” did not work from afar.

    A few comments on the attached respected Professor photo:
    1. Triton is part of a continuous monitoring system together with P-8 Poseidon, most likely in the future Triton will be purchased by India, which was already interested in it, and the US Congress has already given permission to sell.
    2. Recently, it is believed that American destroyers such as Orly Burke and cruisers such as Ticonderoga are defenseless against naval targets, because they go with the dismantled anti-ship missiles Harpoon, and for some reason it is not taken into account that the Seahawk helicopter, which is based on them, besides Hellfire missiles, carries the Penguin anti-ship missiles, which, along with the on-board radar, allows performing almost all anti-ship missions.
    4. Please note that in the photo STERVAGE pilots of the aircraft carrier J.S. Stennis! Not an aerobatic team, but ordinary combat pilots.

      The Australian Department of Defense said it plans to send an information request to the U.S. Navy about the possible acquisition of Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton, a naval patrol version of Global Hawk.
      Such a letter is a request for detailed technical information, including potential changes and costs.

      Australian officials visited the assembly workshops of Triton, and the RQ-4 Global Hawk.
      US Navy plans to acquire the 68 MQ-4C fleet, and intends to put them online in the 2016 year.
      The MQ-4 was ordered by US Navy as a partial replacement for the aging Lockheed P-3C, which first flew in the 1959 year. The MQ-4 are designed to work in conjunction with the P-8 Poseidon, some of which were delivered to the US and Indian military naval forces. Australia also participates in the P-8 Poseidon program and intends to order these aircraft.

        RAF Australia plans to purchase seven Global Hawk - MQ4C Triton by 2019 year.
        The preferred option is the offshore version of Global Hawk observation - MQ4C Triton.
        The estimated cost of the project is from $ 2 billion to $ 3 billion.

        The US Navy plans to start flying the first of the 68 newts to order in the 2015 year.

        Some of them will be based in the American territory of Guam to cover the Asia-Pacific region, while another unit is planned to be based in Diego Garcia,
        to control the Indian Ocean.

        In March, the Washington Post reported that the US is also considering
        Global Hawk / Triton based in Cocos Islands Australia.

        Undoubtedly, C-300 improved the capabilities of Syria’s air defense and I, being an extremely mundane person (engineering troops anyway), I understand that there are very high chances that our pilots will die during the next attack and the planes burn. So what? It will be necessary to fly and die. Unfortunately for the right to live on their land, Jews will have to pay blood for a very long time. Although this applies not only to Jews.

          So that on the next attack yours the pilots will die, and the planes will burn, we will be happy to comment on this because nobody likes an aggressor.

          Do not paint weed in the damned west before the visit of broad-band people. And on deck, this is for the people.

    When reading, I smelled the soldiers, but not the usual Prussian tin, but some overseas, made of chewing gum. Bend well and stick. Then they turn to stone and crumble.

    We must take the best from the enemy that is. And patriotism in the states is much more developed than ours. And PR army is honorable and profitable, and our current is profitable.
    And even if ordinary Amer does not know where the Czech Republic is and where Chechnya is, he knows for sure that no matter where
    and whoever attacks him will be punished.
    That’s what we need to learn, but we don’t see the cops on the street during the day. Hosh. Rob a hosh. For a week. I have no DPS in the city for a week. As closer to the weekend, they are so well-being they are interested in no traffic jams.
    The state itself is a people in itself. And this is bad and most of our troubles are caused by the poor work of officials.
