    Reminds me of WW1 - Australians training the US soldiers...
    More Australians to help in Ukraine military training (msn.com)
    Makes me proud that Aussie techniques & tactics are being used against the Russians.
    Germans, Japanese, Italians, Koreans and Vietnamese will tell you not to mess with Australians and their ways...
    Australia abhors cheating and cheaters, but stick to the saying "All is fair in love and war".
    Studying Australian military history one will find there is no better "scurvy dog" than the Australians. We have tricks old and new to mess the enemy up. We are a small force, so we must NOT play by the rules.
    The Ukrainians are in good hands.

    Last week I read some of the young ladies in an occupied portion offered a hot home cooked meal to a group of 20 RUS soldiers. After the meal was consumed, 12 of the soldiers died and the rest had to be hospitalized. Brovo ladies!!! HoooRah!!!

    "Witchcraft trials in Ukraine have not received the same attention as trials in Western Europe. This is partially due to the limited amount of documentary evidence available."

    Huge concerns for Ukraine (msn.com)
    And so the build up begins...
    I think a dedicated EW Aircraft sitting at 70 000feet loitering over battle areas could use energy weapons to keep an area drone free...And take out any missiles fired at it with the same weapon.

    We don't see much discussion of the detectability (or nor) of bombs; the concern is usually for the aircraft carrying them.

    p.s. anyone know what this aircraft is? First picture in the linked article. Looks to me like a trainer, with good visibility for either crewman to fly the plane.

    A Yak 130…Advanced trainer. Capable of being a ‘light fighter’…and ground attack. Pretty much every advanced country has at least one version of a trainer that can be brought into service if needed, more bang for your buck.
    Australia uses the Hawk…

    I've heard talk that the Axis is learning about the Allies weapons and tactics - But the opposite is also true dudes! (And im sure each training army doesn't give all its secrets away) - Everyday we learn what the Russian troops will and won't do in ALL situations. Russia has lost at least half a million troops thus far (more than the US lost in WW2!) It cant hope to win a war of attrition against the Allies - We have far more people and industry compared to Russia in isolation - Which is why its going for Chinese weapons and Korean troops! (desperation).
    Australia is learning quickly what we need in today's battlefield (Drones!) at the moment...Can you imagine an attacking military trying establish a beachhead in Northern Australia and swarms of these keep coming out from the trees and blowing up anything large and useful as it comes off a barge? Fun times at Ozmont high!
