The Economist's perspective. It devotes most space to looking at the political context.
The new partnership also comes at an opportune time for Mr Biden. His withdrawal from Afghanistan...
Interesting time capsule which reminds us that military planners are usually wiser
than their political masters.

I learned about these interested drawings from another forum, and there are links to the sources given by other members below.
But a companion of mine believes that these are "fake drawings" made using some Australia's cruiser plan drawings and Photoshop.
I feel distressed.
So are these...
With the A400M in service with the RAF we now know what a C130 replacement looks like.
Of course the original C130 "replacement" for the RAF would have been AW/HS 681 had it made it into service.
The US tried to replace the C130 in the 70s with the YC14 and 15. Instead the 15 morphed into the...
the Brabazon Type-3 or Specification 6/45,the known tenders were;
Airspeed,Armstrong-Whitworth and Avro-692 & Avro-693,but can I ask if those
companies involved or not;
Blackburn,Bristol ,De Havilland,Fairey,Folland,Handley Page,Miles,Percival,Scottish Aviation,
Shorts,Vickers and Westland ?.
I have seen somewhere that Grand slam weapons were considered for use on high value targets on the Japanese mainland. If the B-29 was in fact ready even in small number for use then, would they not have value against logistical high value targets in the conflict with North Korea?
It struck pondering what I now know about UK AI radar efforts...
Whether like the AI.21 and AI.23, there was a similar parallel in AI.24 and AI.25...?
Consider the following.
AI.24 was always an ambitious system that originally was FMCW. The back-up option on this all new system and...
It is unclear if she was still in service post-World War II, but if she was still around in 1948 it is debatable whether or not she would have been technically entitled to the HMAFV (His Majesty's Air Force Vessel) prefix, given that she wasn't a powered vessel.
Surprisingly we have not had a thread devoted to how the RAF should have replaced its Canberras?
The Canberra was such a success that it was even bought by the USAF as the Martin B57.
With the benefit of hindsight it ought to have been simple. The Buccaneer S2 did the job for a while with 2 RAF...

I'm putting together an article on the Wireless Set No. 10, which deserves to be MUCH better known - it was the first TDM and PCM comms system in the world. Sadly there is very little info on it, but I know that "Wireless for the Warrior" had a relatively detailed description including post-war...
