A great video about the worlds largest M1 Abrams Tank graveyard. The United States Armed Forces are the federal military forces of the United States. They consist of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The United States has a strong tradition of civilian control of the military. The President of the United States is the military's overall head, and helps form military policy with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), a federal executive department, acting as the principal organ by which military policy is carried out. The DoD is headed by the Secretary of Defense, who is a civilian and Cabinet member. The Defense Secretary is second in the military's chain of command, just below the President, and serves as the principal assistant to the President in all DoD-related matters. To coordinate military action with diplomacy, the President has an advisory National Security Council headed by a National Security Advisor. Both the President and Secretary of Defense are advised by a seven-member Joint Chiefs of Staff, which includes the head of each of the Defense Department's service branches as well as the chief of the National Guard Bureau. Leadership is provided by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Commandant of the Coast Guard is not a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. All of the branches work together during operations and joint missions, under the Unified Combatant Commands, under the authority of the Secretary of Defense with the exception of the Coast Guard, which is under the administration of the Department of Homeland Security and receives its operational orders from the Secretary of Homeland Security. However, the Coast Guard may be transferred to the Department of the Navy by the President or Congress during a time of war. All five armed services are among the seven uniformed services of the United States, the two others being the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (under the Department of Health and Human Services) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Officer Corps (under the Department of Commerce). From the time of its inception, the military played a decisive role in the history of the United States. A sense of national unity and identity was forged as a result of victory in the First Barbary War and the Second Barbary War. Even so, the Founders were suspicious of a permanent military force and not until the outbreak of World War II did a large standing army become officially established. The National Security Act of 1947, adopted following World War II and during the Cold War's onset, created the modern U.S. military framework; the Act merged previously Cabinet-level Department of War and the Department of the Navy into the National Military Establishment (renamed the Department of Defense in 1949), headed by the Secretary of Defense; and created the Department of the Air Force and National Security Council. The U.S. military is one of the largest militaries in terms of number of personnel. It draws its manpower from a large pool of paid volunteers; although conscription has been used in the past in various times of both war and peace, it has not been used since 1972. As of 2013, the United States spends about $554.2 billion annually to fund its military forces, and appropriates approximately $88.5 billion to fund Overseas Contingency Operations. Put together, the United States constitutes roughly 39 percent of the world's military expenditures. For the period 2010–14, SIPRI found that the United States was the world's biggest exporter of major arms, accounting for 31 per cent of global shares. The United States was also the world's eight largest importer of major weapons for the same period. The U.S. Armed Forces has significant capabilities in both defense and power projection thanks to its advanced and powerful equipment and its widespread deployment of force around the world. History Main article: Military history of the United States The history of the U.S. military dates to 1775, even before the Declaration of Independence marked the establishment of the United States. The Continental Army, Continental Navy, and Continental Marines were created in close succession by the Second Continental Congress in order to defend the new nation against the British Empire in the American Revolutionary War. These forces demobilized in 1784 after the Treaty of Paris ended the War for Independence. The Congress of the Confederation created the United States Army on 3 June 1784, and the United States Congress created the United States Navy on March 27, 1794, and the United States Marine Corps on July 11, 1798. All three services trace their origins to the founding of the Continental Army (on 14 June 1775), the Continental Navy (on 13 October 1775) and the Continental Marines (on 10 November 1775), respectively.

This video shows you that After Djibouti, China To Build Second Foreign Naval Base In Pakistan. After Djibouti, China is planning to build its second foreign naval base in Pakistan, according to a South China Morning Post report. The base is most likely to come up near Gwadar, according to Beijing-based military analyst Zhou Chenming "China needs to set up another base in Gwadar for its ships because Gwadar is now a civilian port," the South China Morning Post (SCMP) quoted Chenming as saying. "It's a common practice to have separate facilities for ships and merchant vessels because of their different operations. Merchant ships need a bigger port with a lot of space for w@rehouses and containers, but ships need a full range of maintenance and logistical support services," Chenming further told the SCMP. Another source, which is close to the People's Liberation Army, has also confirmed the development. "Gwadar port can't provide specific services for ships ... Public order there is in a mess. It is not a good place to carry out military logistical support," the source told the SCMP. The SCMP story came after a report, which appeared on Washington-based website The Daily Caller, a few days ago indicated the same. US Army Reserve colonel Lawrence Sellin (retired) had stated that a consensus was reached in one of the meetings between Chinese and Pakistani military officers that a military base would come up on the Jiwani peninsula near Gwadar and close to the Iranian border. american foreign policy, china and india, china and japan, china and us, china foreign policy, china india, china india relations, china japan, china military, china us relations, foreign policy of china, india and china, india china, india china relations, india japan, india japan relations, india russia relations, india us relations, japan china, japan india, pak china relations, us and china, us china relations, us china relationship ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

Build Long-Term Wealth in the Military with my eBook: http://bit.ly/BuildMilitaryWealthEBOOK Is the military worth it? Is the Air force worth it? Will the Air Force change me? These are all big questions I've been asked before. I finally sat down and talked to you guys about whether I feel the Air Force and military is worth it and how the Air Force or military has changed me over the last 4 years. Be sure to hit the subscribe button if you are interested in Air Force and military lifestyle videos and information! This has been a hot topic question for a few years now for me. Is the Air Force worth it. In my opinion I feel like the Air Force is worth it if it's what you're wanting to do with your life. I don't feel it's worth 20 years of my life. But I do think it was a good jumpstart for me to do 6 years. doing 4 years in the Air Force probably would have been just as good for me but I did sign the 6 year contract so that's what I have to stick with. The Air Force has also changed me a lot. More than I thought it would. It made me care more about what others thought of me and it made me watch my image and how I act in public. The Air Force changed me and made me a lot more introverted that I used to be also. I used to be a huge extrovert before I joined the Air Force. But since joining the Air Force I've become a lot more shy and less outgoing. Which is hard on me and It hurts to look back on how I used to be because I used to have so much fun. But in the end I do think joining the Air Force was the best thing for me and it was worth it. I have 4 years down and 2 more left to go.

Heroic Navy Seal Rescues Retired “Unadoptable” Military Dogs Being in the military takes lots of courage and dedication because it not only means fighting for the safety of the country, but also spending time away from the family and the loved ones. However, this kind of life is as difficult for the military dogs as for the humans. After serving in the army, many dogs have difficulties adjusting to their old way of living. They’ve faced gunfire, sniffed out bombs, stumbled across bodies and maybe even endured torture. They haven’t had a soft comfy dog bed in which to lounge, special treats to munch on and a cuddle by the fireplace with a human in a very long time. At some point during their tenure with the military, service dogs often exhibit signs that they can no longer perform their duties. Then, they are dismissed — but what happens to them afterward? The fortunate ones end up Commerce, Texas, in the care of 40-year-old Mike Ritland. The former Navy SEAL served 12 years in that capacity and now runs the Warrior Dog Foundation where he strenuously strives to bring these poor pooches back from the shell of a dog they’ve become. For six years, Mike has been coaxing dogs out of their ghost-like personas when they arrive. His goal is to reprogram them so that they can enjoy a peaceful retirement “in dignity and grace, the way they deserve, for their service to their country.” ‘”Every one of these dogs would be in a box full of ashes on somebody’s desk if we weren’t taking them. So we are the last-ditch resort for these dogs.” These dogs are specially trained beginning as puppies to apprehend enemy soldiers and sniff out explosives. They are completely indispensable overseas. But because their sniffing abilities are so keen, service dogs are huge targets for the enemy. For that very reason, they must wear bulletproof vests and have security cameras attached to themselves. ‘”It’s impossible to quantify the amount of lives that those dogs have saved. It’s in the thousands, or even tens of thousands. The ‘man’s best friend’ adage … is understated. We definitely got the good deal out of that.” So far, Mike has helped save 50 dogs that people have brought to him. Almost all of them have been rehabilitated and placed with new owners alongside the dogs he trains as part of his business. ‘”These dogs ask nothing of us and provide so much for our troops, for our police officers, for our communities, for our nation. For us to give these dogs what they deserve is both an honor and a pleasure. It’s important that these dogs are never forgotten.” They are given treats. They are taught to play with a ball and fetch. They finally are given a chance to be a normal dog and live out the rest of their lives with a forever family. They are no longer soldiers, but simply a dog with an incredible history.

Speculation - Russians returning to Cuba CNN DW At the same time that Russia was denying having blockaded Ukrainian naval facilities in Crimea, little-noticed reports came out of Moscow saying that Vladimir Putin's government had ongoing conversations with eight foreign countries with the objective of building overseas military facilities, including in Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua. "We need bases for refueling near the equator and in other places," Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, was quoted as saying by news agency ITAR-Tass. According to another state-run news agency, RIA Novosti, Shoigu said: "The talks are underway, and we are close to signing the relevant documents." The Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Elías Jaua, responded that, "Because of the constitution, we cannot allow a foreign military installation in our country," according to the Caracas newspaper, El Universal. Attempts to reach spokespeople at the U.S. State and Defense Departments went unanswered Monday due to weather concerns, but analysts were split about how ominously to take the report. "If the Minister of Defense said it, I would absolutely take it seriously," John Reppert, a retired brigadier general in the U.S. Army who served as military attaché in Moscow for many years, said. "But the critical issue would be the nature and intent of the agreements. If it's essentially just refueling rights, it's probably benign and hard to generate much indignation over." Reppert did add, "It would indicate that they are planning to expand their naval operations on this side of the Atlantic, which would be very much of interest." The collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s led to a decade of retrenchment in the Russian military. After 2002, when a naval facility in Vietnam and a radar station in Cuba were shuttered, the Russians retained only one military base in a country that hadn't been part of the Soviet Union, and that's a naval base in Tartus, Syria. An installation whose existence now is imperiled by the ongoing civil war in that country. The U.S. maintains about two dozen military bases and "Forward Operating Locations" in Latin America and the Caribbean, stretching from Puerto Rico to Chile. "I don't see [Russia venturing militarily into Latin America] as really likely," said Adam Isacson, defense and security specialist at the human rights organization Washington Office on Latin America. "It could be a goad to the U.S., or an attempt to show the world Russia is no longer a declining military power. Beyond the symbolic level, it may be an attempt to promote arms sales — Russia has been the top vendor of armaments in Latin America for the last couple of years thanks to huge sales to Venezuela." Nevertheless, Russia has been paying more military attention to Latin America in recent years. David Kerans, a correspondent for the U.S. edition of the Voice of Russia -- that country's Voice of America equivalent -- told Fox News Latino that while he had no direct knowledge of any government outreach about bases, "It wouldn't surprise me, and it would make a certain amount of sense strategically." Russian ships held joint maneuvers with the Venezuelan Navy in 2008 and have visited Cuban waters a few times since 2009, including last week, when the intelligence-gathering ship Viktor Leonov docked in Havana's harbor without warning. Tom O'Donnell, an expert on the international oil trade who teaches at New York University, said, "I have heard about talks, though I didn't know it had gotten so far." O'Donnell thinks it unlikely that there is a master plan being unveiled. "It gives Putin great pleasure to put his finger in the U.S. eye every now and then," he told Fox News Latino. But when O'Donnell has spoken to Russian government representatives about Putin's strategy in Latin America, they have laughed. "Strategy?" one told him. "He doesn't have one." Indeed, O'Donnell ventured, "The Russian government's too burdened just trying to manage things inside Russia."

GRAB Satellite Declassified - NRL Built and Deployed First Reconnaissance Satellite System. GRAB, or Galactic Radiation and Background Satellite was the world’s first intelligence satellite, designed to collect Soviet air defense radar signals. Watch this historical video by the National Reconnaissance Office with former Naval Center for Space Technology director, Pete Wilhelm. A U.S. Navy electronic intelligence (ELINT) satellite system became operational in July 1960 and was operated until August 1962. The heretofore classified mission was to obtain information on Soviet air defense radars that could not be observed by Air Force and Navy ferret aircraft flying ELINT missions along accessible borders in Europe and the western Pacific. The ELINT satellite system was proposed by the Naval Research Laboratory in the spring of 1958. In parallel with exploratory development by NRL, the Office of Naval Intelligence obtained endorsements for Project Tattletale from elements of the executive and legislative branches. With positive recommendations from State, Defense, and CIA, President Eisenhower approved full development on 24 August 1959. By then, the project had been placed under a tight security control system with access limited to fewer than 200 officials in the Washington DC area. Development and interagency coordination proceeded as the GRAB (Galactic Radiation and Background) experiment. After NRL completed development of the GRAB satellite and a network of overseas ground collection sites, a first launch was approved by Eisenhower on 5 May 1960, just four days after a CIA U-2 aircraft was lost on a reconnaissance mission over Soviet territory. The GRAB satellite got a free ride into space on 22 June 1960 with Navy's third Transit navigation satellite. GRAB carried two electronic payloads, the classified ELINT package and instrumentation to measure solar radiation. The SolRad experiment was publicly disclosed in Department of Defense press releases on this and subsequent launches. Four more launches were attempted, and one was successful on 29 June 1961. The Director of Naval Intelligence exercised overall control. Data recorded on magnetic tape was couriered back to the NRL, then evaluated, duplicated, and forwarded to the NSA at the Army's Fort Meade, Maryland, and the Strategic Air Command (SAC) at Offutt Air Force Base, Omaha, Nebraska, for analysis and processing. SAC's processing was aimed at defining the characteristics and location of air defense equipment to support building the SIOP (single integrated operations plan), a responsibility of the Joint Strategic Targeting Staff at Offutt AFB. In searching the tapes for new and unusual signals, NSA found that the Soviets were already operating a radar that supported a capability to destroy ballistic missiles. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara formally established the NRO on 14 June 1962 by a top secret directive, and the GRAB technology was then transferred to the NRO. NRL has a 75-year history in science and technology development. NRL pioneered naval research into space, from atmospheric probes with captured V-2 rockets, through the direction of the Vanguard project -- America's first satellite program, to such projects as the Global Positioning System and more recently the Clementine mission. NRL produced the first satellite communication system by using the moon as a reflector and receiving the returned signal on the Earth's largest parabolic antenna; this was a first step toward artificial satellite communications. Since the late 1950's, Laboratory scientists have designed, built and launched more than 80 satellites. The GRAB space program announcement is indicative of the many contributions of NRL's scientists and engineers in support of the Navy's and National interests.

Tax matters as an expat English teacher abroad are generally straight forward, but there is no shortage of people who will try to make you feel like it's a monumental task that is going to require you to send them hundreds of dollars. This is not accounting or legal advice, but this is my take on expat taxes for ESL teachers abroad and what I would do/did in the past. Note: YES, YOU HAVE TO FILE A RETURN AS AN AMERICAN. NO MATTER WHAT. DO NOT NOT FILE YOUR TAXES. A lot of people think because they are abroad they don't have to file or because they didn't make enough to have to pay that they don't need to file. It's actually the exact OPPOSITE. You FILE the form 2555 in order to not have to pay. Also of note: "You may be allowed an automatic 2-month extension of time to file your return and pay any federal income tax that is due. You will be allowed the extension if you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien and on the regular due date of your return: You are living outside of the United States and Puerto Rico and your main place of business or post of duty is outside the United States and Puerto Rico, or You are in military or naval service on duty outside the United States and Puerto Rico If you use a calendar year, the regular due date of your return is April 15, and the automatic extended due date would be June 15. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is delayed until the next business day. Even if you are allowed an extension, you will have to pay interest on any tax not paid by the regular due date of your return." *********** 🥇COACHING/MANUAL/RESUME SERVICE ▶︎http://www.benteachesenglishoverseas.com 📕 FREE BOOKLET "The Big 6" ▶︎http://www.benteachesenglishoverseas.com/blog 📰 BLOG: http://www.benteachesenglishoverseas.com/blog 🎥 YOUR PERSONALIZED SKYPE CONSULTATION http://www.rockstarESLteacher.com 🔻 FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA🔻 🔵 FACEBOOK | http://facbook.com/benteachesenglishoverseas ✅ INSTAGRAM | http://instagram.com/benteachesenglishoverseas 💙 TWITTER | http://twitter.com/benteachesESL

When I was in the Navy, I would frequently see enlisted guys stay in 20 years and retire at the age of 38 and live in the Philippines forever on their pensions without a care in the world. Teaching English abroad, I sought not only to replicate this model, but to actually improve upon it. With a regular retirement, you are at the mercy of the government (or your employer in the case of some pensions that are quickly going the way of the dodo bird) paying you each month and you control no underlying principal. With my retirement, I personally hold all of the underlying assets and I didn't have to let someone have direct control over my life for 20 years to get to my needed output. Do not listen to people who want to tell you you need a fortune to retire. You may if your needs fall into a certain category, but you likely do not. Early retirement from teaching English to places with a low cost of living can be possible if you put in the leg work and learn how to do the most you can with your inputs. *********** 🥇COACHING/MANUAL/RESUME SERVICE ▶︎http://www.benteachesenglishoverseas.com 📕 FREE BOOKLET "The Big 6" ▶︎http://www.benteachesenglishoverseas.com/blog 📰 BLOG: http://www.benteachesenglishoverseas.com/blog 🎥 YOUR PERSONALIZED SKYPE CONSULTATION http://www.rockstarESLteacher.com 🔻 FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA🔻 🔵 FACEBOOK | http://facbook.com/benteachesenglishoverseas ✅ INSTAGRAM | http://instagram.com/benteachesenglishoverseas 💙 TWITTER | http://twitter.com/benteachesESL

A reserve fleet is informally said to be "in mothballs" or "mothballed"; an equivalent expression in unofficial modern U.S. naval usage is "ghost fleet". In earlier times, and especially in British usage, these ships were said to be laid up in ordinary. Overview Such ships are held in reserve against a time when it may be necessary to call them back into service, and are usually tied up in backwater areas near naval bases or shipyards to speed the reactivation process. They may be modified, for instance by having rust-prone areas sealed off or wrapped in plastic or, in the case of sailing warships, the masts removed. While being held in the reserve fleet, ships typically have a minimal crew (known informally as a skeleton crew) to ensure that they stay in somewhat usable condition — if for nothing else, their bilge pumps need to be run regularly to reduce corrosion of their steel and to prevent the ships from foundering at their moorings. When a ship is placed into reserve status, the various parts and weapon systems that the ship uses are also placed in a storage facility, so that if and when the warship is reactivated, the proper spare parts and ammunition are available — though, like the ships themselves, these stored parts and equipment are prone to fall into disrepair, suffer metal corrosion, and become obsolete. For example, during the United States' 600-ship Navy plan under President Ronald Reagan, the U.S. Navy reactivated its four Iowa-class battleships from mothballs to serve with the active fleet... One reserve fleet, the National Defense Reserve Fleet (NDRF), consists of about fifty World War II ships that have been moored in Suisun Bay near San Francisco since the 1950s or '60s. The fleet includes military troopships and tankers. Alternatives In practice most reserve ships rapidly become obsolete and are scrapped, or used for experiments or target practice, or are sold to other nations (and occasionally to private companies for civilian conversion), or become museum ships or artificial reefs. In recent decades the U.S. Maritime Administration has begun to scrap dozens of reserve vessels, many of which date from World War II. Exporting the vessels for shipbreaking or dismantling are alternatives to reserve fleets. More recently, the U.S. Navy has established a program to allow ships such as Oriskany to be sunk in selected locations to create artificial reefs. Recycling is another option, as in the case of the NDRF, the ships of which are set to be stripped of their paint, cut into pieces, and then recycled. Steel from pre-nuclear age ships either mothballed or sunk and raised, called low-background steel, is used in experimental physics when the experiment requires shielding material which is itself only extremely weakly radioactive, emitting less than present-day background radiation; materials which were manufactured after atmospheric nuclear explosions had taken place reflect the higher ambient level of radioactivity that fallout has caused. Environmental concerns The practice of exporting and dismantling ships has caused international protests as they contain toxic materials. In 2007, following studies that found that 20 tons of lead paint had flaked off the ships of the NDRF, environmentalist groups sued to have them removed. The federal Maritime Administration has agreed to remove more than 50 of the ships as a result, 25 of which will be removed by 2012 and the remainder by 2017... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Defense_Reserve_Fleet

Satellite Images Spy China's First Overseas Military Base A commercial imagery satellite shows China's first overseas military base in modern times, located in the tiny African nation of Djibouti. The base lies astride important shipping routes that fuel the Chinese economy and gives China an important presence into Africa and the Middle East. Located at the tip of the Horn of Africa, the 36-hectare base has a 1,300-foot long airstrip plus control tower, aircraft hangars, and semi-underground storage facilities for petroleum, oil, and machine lubricants. It also has ammunition storage bunkers, and two probable vehicle sheds. Retired Indian Army Col. Vinayak Bhat told DefenseNews there also appears to be ground control systems for unmanned aerial vehicles. DefenseNews has imagery of the base here.

A great video of Chinese Navy ships arriving at Pearl Harbor to participate in Military Exercise. Thirty-nine maritime security professionals gathered at the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies July 7 to exchange perspectives on securing oceans in the Asia-Pacific region more effectively. Participants comprised primarily naval officers from eight of the 26 nations taking part in the Rim of the Pacific 2016 exercise centered at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, and underway in the waters and airspace around the Hawaiian islands. The event, titled “RIMPAC 2016 Maritime Security Symposium,” featured attendees from Australia, Canada, China, Colombia, India, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States. “We took advantage of an opportunity where we knew many nations’ navies would be on the island, and they were going to be thinking about operational issues,” said symposium coordinator U.S. Navy Cmdr. Jonathan Odom, a DKI APCSS faculty member. Odom said the event reinforced RIMPAC’s multinational/cooperative approach to maritime security while introducing participants to the Center’s model of inclusive and respectful exchange of ideas. Odom led one of three primary topical discussions, focusing on the strategic importance of operational maritime safety. He addressed how relatively small, isolated incidents ¬at sea — such as a collision or an escalation of force resulting from miscommunication — can have profound, lasting effects on relationships between nations. He discussed how navies can implement international legal norms and safety standards internally to help prevent or mitigate negative incidents collectively, and solicited practical experiences from symposium participants on how each of their navies promote operational safety within their fleets. “I thought it was great to have a RIMPAC representation here,” said Brad Kaplan, foreign policy advisor to the 3rd Fleet commander. “We talked about a number of productive and cooperative efforts…about the importance of international law and regimes in resolving many of the issues that are paramount in the Asia-Pacific area.” The symposium opened with a panel discussion focused on the value of inclusion of women in security matters. Panelists included U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Nora Tyson, commander of 3rd Fleet, based in San Diego; DKI APCSS Director retired Lt. Gen. Dan Leaf; retired U.S. Navy Capt. Albert Shimkus, an associate professor at the U.S. Naval War College; Lt. Cmdr. Jacqueline Swinton, Royal Australian Navy gender advisor; and discussion moderator DKI APCSS professor Dr. Saira Yamin. Panelists addressed implementation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security into national defense plans. UNSCR 1325 emphasizes the important role of women in security efforts, to include prevention and resolution of conflicts, and stresses their equal participation and full involvement in efforts to build and sustain peace and security. Participants also engaged on the topic of naval support to civilian maritime law enforcement, a session led by DKI APCSS associate professor Kerry Lynn Nankivell. DKI APCSS is a Department of Defense institute that addresses regional and global factors impacting the Asia-Pacific security environment. Military and civilian representatives from the United States and Asia-Pacific nations participate in a comprehensive program of executive education, professional exchanges and outreach events, both in Hawaii and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The Center supports the U.S. Pacific Command by developing and sustaining relationships among security practitioners and national security establishments throughout the region. DKI APCSS’ mission is to build capacities and communities of interest by educating, connecting and empowering security practitioners to advance Asia-Pacific security. It is one of the Department of Defense’s five regional security studies centers. Since opening in 1995, more than 10,000 alumni representing over 122 countries and territories have attended DKI APCSS courses and workshops.

What Is The Government Doing To Protect Us From An EMP? Not much, is the short answer. While nuclear weapons are destructive enough to level entire cities, the resultant EMP from one would likely be its most devastating effect. In 2001, in response to concern that crucial infrastructure and even the United States military would not hold up against an EMP strike, the EMP Commission was created by Congress. President Obama disbanded the committee and the potentially society-saving information that would come out of it, not long after taking office. In 2008, the Commission delivered a report on the possible effects that an EMP strike would have on national infrastructures, recommending ways that the US could prepare, protect, and restore these if this kind of attack were ever to take place. Dr. William Forstchen’s One Second After was heralded on the floor of Congress by those elected officials and commission members who saw the writing on the wall and were urging, if not outright begging, for something to be done to protect the lives of Americans, our economy, and sanctity of this nation, from an EMP attack. Their pleas largely fell upon deaf ears. Several bills were written to address the power grid’s frailties and to develop a full and actionable plan to prepare for an EMP attack – and to survive afterwards, but they never made it out of committee. Why do perhaps the most important pieces of legislation introduced during our lifetimes keep getting buried? Disbelief such a SHTF event is really going to happen for one – but over money, mostly. Hardening the power grid and taking other necessary steps to prepare American for either a man-made or natural EMP attack would cost billions of dollars. Why don’t our public servants just stop sending our hard-earned money to countries they readily and loudly proclaim their hate for us and curtail the tens of billions of dollars sent overseas for charitable reasons and spent on studies about that place shrimp on treadmills? That is a good question for which neither I, nor those politicians who continue to ignore this looming and very real SHTF thread, have no reasonable answer. Final Word An EMP attack is a strong possibility in today’s economically-strained, weaponized world. It is a swift, deadly, and silent force that relies on the deterioration of civil society into chaos and darkness. While it may appear to be a perfectly normal scientific phenomenon, its effects on humanity will be crippling. How prepared are you for an EMP strike?

INTRODUCTION: A series of remarks by British officials about the country’s future actions in the South China Sea quickly reverberated across the world, prompting headlines that suggested a more muscular role by the Britain in SOUTH CHINA SEA. Britain’s rising concern about the South China Sea is nothing new. Indeed, British officials have been making clear over the past few years that even though they do want to develop their economic ties with China, they are concerned by Beijing’s unlawful actions in the South China Sea. Mr Boris Johnson said: “One of the first things we will do with the two new colossal aircraft carriers that we have just built is send them on a freedom of navigation operation to this area to vindicate our belief in the rules-based international system and in the freedom of navigation through those waterways which are absolutely vital for world trade.” The reference to colossal aircraft carriers is to QUEEN ELIZABETH CLASS CARRIERS, that is HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales. In this video, Defense Updates analyzes the power of Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers and examines why China is concerned? Lets get started. INCEPTION: In May 1997, the newly elected Labour government launched the Strategic Defense Review (SDR) which re-evaluated every weapon system (active or in procurement) with the exception of the Eurofighter Typhoon and the Vanguard-class ballistic missile submarines. One of the important outcomes of the report was that the government intended to replace the current carrier force with two larger vessels capable of deploying up to 50 aircraft, including helicopters. This decision was taken to augment the strategic capability of Royal Navy and ultimately led to the development of Queen Elizabeth class carrier. DESIGN The ships are being built by partnership comprising arms makers BAE Systems, Babcock, Thales and the Ministry of Defense. The Queen Elizabeth class vessels can be described as super carriers as they will displace approximately 70,600 tons each. It’s over three times the displacement of its predecessor, the Invincible class. Its 280 m in length, which makes it about 2 and half times as large as a football field. The vessels of this class are largest warships ever built in the United Kingdom and are only elapsed by the American Nimitz and Ford class supercarriers that have displacement of 100,000 tons. PROPULSION, SPEED & RANGE The power is supplied by 2 Rolls-Royce Marine Trent MT30 36 MW (48,000 hp) gas turbine generator units and 4 Wärtsilä diesel generator sets (two 9 MW or 12,000 hp and two 11 MW or 15,000 hp sets). Queen Elizabeth class is capable of speed inn excess of 26 knots (48 km/h; 30 mph). It has range of 10,000 nautical miles (19,000 km; 12,000 mi). The combination of good speed and excellent range make this class of carrier a tremendous platform. RADAR The ship's main radar is the BAE Systems and Thales S1850M, the same as fitted to the Type 45 destroyers, for long-range wide-area search. The S1850M has a fully automatic detection and track initiation that can track up to 1,000 air targets at a range of around 400 KM (250 mi). The BAE Systems Artisan 3D Type 997 maritime medium-range active electronically scanned array radar will also be present. BAE claims Artisan can "track a target the size of a snooker ball over 20 km (12 mi) away", with a maximum range of 200 km. The 2 radars compliment each other and enable the carrier with an excellent situational awareness. CARRIER AIR GROUP The Queen Elizabeth class is designed to accommodate 40 aircrafts with a maximum capability of carrying 50 aircrafts. With the retirement of the Harrier in 2010, there remains no carrier-capable fixed-wing aircraft available to the Royal Navy or Royal Air Force. The intended replacement is F 35B, which will be the main offensive package. Each of the carriers will be carrying 36 to 40 F 35B. The aircraft are expected to begin trials flying from Queen Elizabeth in 2018 with a carrier air wing fully operational by 2020. The 5th generation stealth multirole fighter is capable of deep strike missions. Other than that several different combination of helicopters will be deployed depending on operational needs. These include Merlin HM2 and HC4, Wildcat AH1 and HMA2 and Merlin Crowsnest Airborne Early Warning (AEW) helicopter.

As hostile maritime threats from China, Iran and Russia are growing, United States Navy officials are considering beefing up the size of our fleet. Our Navy currently has 276 vessels. 100 are deployed globally but most of the others are are dry-docked waiting, sometimes idle for years, waiting for necessary maintenance, upgrades or certifications. With China, Iran and Russia expanding their navies and taking more aggressive actions on the high seas, there is an urgent need for America’s currently idle ships and submarines to head out to the open sea, Malia Zimmerman at Fox News reports. “Our advantage is shrinking,” Adm. John Richardson, chief of Naval Operations, said. “We must reverse this trend.” There are at least five possibilities of reversing America’s shrinking advantage: Recommission mothballed vessels; extend the service life of currently operating vessels; speed scheduled dock work; build new ones and operate the existing fleet more efficiently. The option of bringing back retired vessels has its critics. “The Navy has to consider what it would cost to bring each of these ships back into service, what would need to be invested so they would be capable against today’s threat, and how many more years could we get out of these ships,” said Tom Callender, senior fellow for Naval Warfare and Advanced Technologies at the Heritage Foundation. “We would spend many years and hundreds of millions of dollars to bring them back. We have to find room in the shipyards to do this work, we have to plan it out, and we have to find the money and realize it will be several years in the process.” The Navy is exploring every option to increase the capacity and capability of the battle force, including extending the expected service life of ships and reactivation. “Reactivating retired ships will be a challenge because the ships are old and have not been maintained and modernized since deactivation,” Lt. Kara Yingling, a Navy spokesperson said. “A lot has changed since we last modernized those ships, and there could be significant costs involved with restoring their systems.” A more strategic plan, Callender said, is to speed up maintenance, repair and certification. Part of the problem is a severe worker shortage of about 2,000 people. “Backlog in repairs has been a major issue in the last several years as the Navy has seen their operations and maintenance budget cut with continuing sequestrations,” Callender said. “In 2016, about halfway through the year the Navy was in the hole about $848 million, and that caused them to delay five ships’ availabilities.” The USS Albany, for example, spent over four years in the shipyard due to continued delays, so while the attack submarine is on the registry, it wasn’t being used. Richardson outlined a plan in May for more quickly designing, building and launching a larger and more powerful fleet that incorporates cutting-edge technologies and new operational concepts. “The current security environment is faster paced, more complex, and increasingly competitive,” Richardson wrote in the 2016 Force Structure Assessment, to back the plan. “Time is an unforgiving characteristic of that environment —things are moving faster, including our competitors.” The Navy is proposing a 355-ship fleet with 12 carriers, 104 large surface combatants, 52 small surface combatants, 38 amphibious ships and 66 submarines over the next 30 years. Yingling said that in fiscal year 2017, the Navy currently expects to deliver 13 ships and retire 6 ships, and by fiscal year 2022, is scheduled to raise the size of the battle force from the current 276 ships to 310 ships. China has plans to grow its navy to 351 ships by 2020 as the Chinese continue to develop their military’s ability to strike global targets, according to a recent Congressional report. We need to pick up the pace.

Indian Navy ship INS Satpura is at the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii as part of world's largest multilateral naval exercise (Ex) RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific) involving 27 nations. This is only the second time that Indian Navy is physically present in the biennial exercise held in Western Pacific Ocean that is seeing participation of China, France, Japan, United Kingdom, South Korea, Australia, Canada, among other nations. Brazil, Denmark, Germany and Italy are participating for the first time. India's participation in the mega exercise began as an 'Observer' in 2006 followed by 2010 and 2012. In 2014, Indian participation was enhanced with deployment of Indian Naval ship Sahyadri. INS Satpura, an indigenously built guided mi$$ile stealth frigate, is part of the Eastern Fleet of the Indian Navy. Naval officials said that the participation in the exercise is in line with India's Act East policy. "Indian Naval participation in Ex RIMPAC provides a platform for multilateral operational interactions aimed at increased interoperability and development of common understanding of procedures for maritime security operations. The professional exchanges in harbour and diverse range of activities at sea, including complex surface, sub-surface and air operations would enable sharing of best practices and honing of operational skills," Navy said in a statement. The exercise, notably also brings together Japan and the US joining hands with China that sees red over the two countries'presence in the South China sea. China's participation was opposed by a section of the US Congress prior to the beginning of the exercise. Besides other activities, the Indian navy crew visited the amphibious assault ships of the US USS America as a part of a training programme. The current edition of the exercise is being held at Hawaii and California and scheduled to culminate on August 4. pearl harbor,rimpac,naval exercise,pearl harbour,rimpac 2014,indian exercise,navy ships,us navy ships,how to join the navy,navy training,military exercises,navy physical requirements,military standard,navy fitness test,navy news,navy workout Channel Link: youtube.com/c/GlobalConflict7 Melange by AnvionMusic https://soundcloud.com/anvionmusic Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported— CC BY-SA 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

ASEAN countries please support Japan. Asean must unite to resolve South China Sea dispute 2017 ASEAN summit leaders discuss DPRK, South China Sea #CHexit Japan urge PH, China to abide by arbitral ruling Speaking at a news conference during the ASEAN summit in Manila Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono expressed concern over the South China Sea issue, of which he said "the rule of law is at stake. The Communist Party of China is the enemy of mankind. China has apparently finished expanding its manmade island outposts in the South China Sea and has moved on to building military infractures on some of the larger islands, according to the Pentagon's annual assessment of military and security development of China. The report states that China is currently focused on outfitting its three largest outposts — Fiery Cross, Subi and Mischief Reefs in the Spratly Islands — with military infrastructures, including airfields with runways measuring at least 8,800 feet, water and fuel storage, port facilities, 24 fighter-sized hangars, communications facilities and barracks and administration buildings. Once the facilities are complete, China can house up to three regiments of fighter jets in the Spratly Islands. According to Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, the three air bases and another on Woody Island in the Paracels will give Chinese fighter jets the ability to operate over almost the entire South China Sea, as well as the radar surveillance coverage of almost the entire region from its facilities on the large and smaller outposts. Parts of the South China Sea is claimed by China, Brunei, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam. The Hague international tribunal rejected China’s claims of historical ownership in the in the South China Sea last July. China, in response, has firmly rejected the ruling. An international court handed down a decision that pointed a finger at the unjustness of Beijing’s self-serving actions and statements related to its territorial claims in the South China Sea. Regarding the so-called nine-dash line - based on which China claims sovereignty - the arbitration court said "there was no legal basis for China to claim historic rights". The court also said "there was no evidence that China had historically exercised exclusive control" over the resources and waters. The international court further concluded that China was not entitled to an exclusive economic zone for the artificial islands it has constructed in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.

China Planning to Deploy Large Unmanned AI Submarines by 2020s China is hoping huge, new, smart unmanned submarines will help give its naval fleet an edge in crucial waterways like the South China Sea and the western Pacific. The South China Post reported Sunday that Beijing expects to deploy artificially intelligent unmanned submarines in the early 2020s. The seacraft could be used to survey waters, place munitions or even be used in suicide attacks against enemies, scientists involved in the program told the outlet. Lin Yang, marine technology equipment director at the Shenyang Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, confirmed the program, and said it was a response to work in the US to develop similar watercraft. These subs, dubbed extra-large unmanned underwater vehicles, or XLUUVs, are much bigger than the current crop of underwater vehicles — large enough to dock as conventional submarines and to carry significant weaponry and other equipment. Their artificial intelligence will help them operate undersea, not only to avoid natural phenomena, but to detect and identify friendly or hostile ships and make navigational decisions to avoid them. The XLUUVs are also designed to complete tasks without needing to seek input during the course of a mission, the SCMP reports. The intention is for the subs to depart, complete their missions and return without needing guidance. U.S. Navy Sailors participate in a medical training exercise on the deck of the Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Lassen (DDG 82) with an MH-60R Seahawk helicopter, in the South China Sea, REUTERS / U.S. NAVY China Scrambles Jets, Sends Ships to Warn Off US Navy From S China Sea One of the main advantages of the AI subs, however, is their relatively low cost, as all of the investment that goes into making the vehicles survivable environments for humans can be stripped away. Without those frills, the ships can operate fearlessly, using artificial intelligence systems to learn from what is happening around them without having to be concerned with protecting human cargo. They could be a major issue for enemy commanders to deal with, Luo Yuesheng, professor at the College of Automation in Harbin Engineering University, where Chinese subs are developed, told SCMP. Of course, without humans on board, the unmanned subs will have to be especially resilient, as human diagnostics and repairs while at sea won't be possible. China has been increasingly investing in its navy, opening its first overseas naval base in 2017 and ramping up production of its growing fleet of aircraft carriers. Beijing announced earlier this year that it would be increasing its military budget by nearly 10 percent, the biggest jump in a recent upward trend that has seen military spending grow from $132 billion to $175 billion. (The US defense budget for 2018, by contrast, was just shy of $700 billion.) In this Friday, Sept. 16, 2016 photo released by Xinhua News Agency, Chinese Navy frigate Huangshan, left, and Russian Navy antisubmarine ship Admiral Tributs take part in a joint naval drill at sea off south China's Guangdong Province. Beijing Building World’s Largest Drone Ship Test Site by South China Sea The subs will join China's underwater drones, like the 11-foot, 1.5 ton Qialong III that scouts for deep-sea fossil fuel deposits as well as potential foreign ships, and other autonomous systems on land and in the air to act in concert with People's Liberation Army-Navy personnel. They are not intended to replace manned underwater vehicles, but to provide more options for human commanders, researchers on the program told the outlet. Xu Guangyu, a retired general and senior consultant with the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association in Beijing, told Sputnik in February that while China intends to keep up with the US in terms of expertise and technology, that doesn't mean China is looking to achieve parity with the US' massive war machine. "China would focus on competing against the United States on quality. We cannot fall behind in terms of technology. But in terms of the size or numbers service members of the military, we would not try to ‘strike a balance' with them. For example, they [the United States] have thousands of nuclear warheads. We would not be so foolish as to spend a lot of money on such weapons that lie dormant in storage facilities. If the accuracy and power of our missiles are strong, it's enough for us, because one of our missiles would equal 10 missiles from the United States," Xu said. Tensions between the US and China are already high when it comes to the world's oceans. The US objects to China's continued building in contested zones of the South China Sea, and China has expressed strong opposition to the proximity of US vessels to the self-ruling island of Taiwan, which it considers a province of the mainland. source:sputnik

HAL Scouts Overseas Partner For Multi Role Helo Engines. India's state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, or HAL, has floated a global request for information for the purchase of engines to power its homemade multi-role helicopter. "Having designed the helicopter, there is very little else that HAL has on its table, except setting up manufacturing facilities. Even the avionics of the IMRH will be imported," said Vijainder Thakur, a defense analyst and retired Indian Air Force squadron leader, referring to the Indian Multi-Role Helicopter. HAL, which is India's sole aircraft and helicopter producer, is developing the 12.5-ton class multi-role helicopter with a service ceiling of about 20,000 feet and a 3,500 kilogram payload. The company is aiming to freeze the preliminary design of its IMRH so it can be built over the next 18 months. Safran of France is a preferred HAL partner for helicopter engines, having visited India in May 2017 to discuss the requirement, Thakur said, adding that Ukraine is pitching its variant of the Mi-17 helicopter engine. Around 200 of the helicopters are proposed to be built for use by the Indian defense forces, including the Indian Navy, Air Force and Army for tactical troop movement, heliborne and amphibious assault, anti-submarine warfare, and anti-surface operations. An Indian Ministry of Defence official, however, said HAL cannot go ahead without the support of and clear visibility from government. "If support comes from leading foreign origin equipment manufacturers for engines, landing gear [and so on], then it would take easily eight to 10 years" for development, the MoD official said. A HAL official said each IMRH could cost more than $30 million. Sources say the IMRH is just a revival of HAL’s earlier medium-lift program, which was grounded in 2008. They also noted that the Navy is simply not interested in IMRH, and the only takers would be the Army and Air Force. Safran Helicopter Engines of France is likely to be a front-runner for the supply of engines and consultancy, in addition to General Electric of the U.S. and Rolls-Royce of the U.K. russian helicopters, indian helicopter, mi 35, mi 8, ka 52, mi 17 helicopter, ka 52 alligator, helicopter price in indian rupees, mil mi 8, hind helicopter for sale, mil mi 17, mi 8 helicopter, hal lch, mi 17 helicopter price, indian chopper, indian helicopter price, price of helicopter in indian rupees, dhruv helicopter, attack helicopter, russian military helicopters Source: https://goo.gl/o9rg3j By: Vivek Raghuvanshi ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

What Royal navy might look like in 10-15 years time. With current government it is hard to guess what ships will enter service and what ships will be sacrificed to invade yet another pointless country. It is my opinion the UK needs a strong and powerful Royal Navy, with at least 24 Frigates, 8 destroyers, 2 carriers, 2 Helicopter carriers, 8 Astute Submarines and substantial blue navy capability which conservatives are dismantling at the behest our national security and in turn we invade places like Iraq and Afhg...w.e to accomplish exactly what? (nu labur innit) I say we should take care of our own, and than think if we are able to help with peacekeeping worldwide, and for that we need a superb navy that is up to a task of supporting our men and women overseas. Navy first, Army last is my motto, what i mean by this, we enter in to conflict area as peacekeepers first with navy delivering vital supplies and relief to needing population, Army should only be used when all our diplomatic and humanitarian operations were exhausted. Just to end, UK is no one's puppy dog nor should we allow to be used as one every time some Yankee doodle doo yells jump. update... RN Fleet circa 2020-2025 6x Type 45 Destroyers 12x Type 23 Frigates (will be retired by 2028) 12x Type 26 Frigates (replacing Type 23 Frigates) 8-10x ocean Going corvettes or additional type 26 frigates (not yet clear...) 7x Astute Class Attack Submarines 3x Vanguard Class submarines 2x Queen Elisabeth class Super Carriers 2x Assault Landing Docks (Albion and Bulwark) 1x Ocean Class Helicopter Carrier 2x Wave Class Replenishment ships 4x Fort Rosalie/Victoria class replenishment ship (Fort George, Decommissioned, but kept in the reserve) 1x Aviation training / Primary Casualty Receiving Ship 3x Rover/Leaf class oilers 6x Point class sealift ship (civilian ships under RN contract and only used in times of war) 6x Sandown-class mine countermeasures vessels 2x Antarctic patrol icebreakers HMS Protector & HMS Endurance 4x Bay class landing ship dock 1x RFA Diligence (A132) class 4x River-class patrol vessels 2x Echo-class multi-purpose survey vessels 1x Ocean survey vessel 16x Archer or P2000-class fast patrol boats (used only for training) Just to add, originally RN defence white paper called for upwards of 30 escorts, plan called for C1. C2 and C3 escorts, C1 would have been class of ships similar in size to Type 45 but less capable, now we know them as type 26 frigates, C2 supposed to e some kind of general purpose frigate lets call it type 25 (for now) and C3 supposed to have been large ocean class corvettes, I've originally thought it might be BAE Systems Sea Wraith Corvettes or some other Stealthy 99-115m corvettes, but now this is unlikely to be the case. It is my opinion RN will go with additional Type 26 frigates, 8 additional ships will be ordered circa 2017 instead of going with whole new design for C2 or even C3 escorts.Although I must be honest, I'm not impressed with type 26 frigates one bit. please stay tuned and subscribe, If you liked my video perhaps you might like my channel too, I create videos about Science & Technology, Space, Astronomy, Gameplay, Military technology and Environmental Architecture, Green and Eco news including latest on the photovoltaic, wind, solar and other renewable sources of energy such as Fusion Power.

India has signed a deal with the archipelago nation of Seychelles for the development, management, operation and maintenance of military facilities on its strategically located island of Assumption, the Times of India has reported. Assumption Island is located in the Indian Ocean, north of Madagascar. As part of the agreement signed in Victoria on Saturday, India will renovate an airstrip on the island, upgrade the jetty and construct quarters for the Seychelles Coast Guard. While the Seychelles Coast Guard will use these facilities to patrol its exclusive economic zone, the India Navy will be allowed to operate from the facility, experts say. The details of the deal remain unclear as the text of the agreement has not made public. While reports in India say the island has been leased to New Delhi, Seychelles’ Army Chief has denied the same. The deal remained stuck in Seychelles due to concerns related to questions on the sovereignty of the island and the ownership of the infrastructure. These concerns have been addressed in the revised draft of the deal. By some accounts, the agreement will not allow India to use the facility when the country is at war. However, reports which suggest that the agreement would be terminated if India goes to war may not be accurate. The agreement allows the use of facilities on the island by third parties “subject to concurrence of both” India and Seychelles. The deal was finalized during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Seychelles in 2015. India is also planning to develop military infrastructure on Mauritius’ Agalega Island as it looks to extend its strategic footprint in the West Indian Ocean.

This video shows you that Selling Fighter Planes To India Now Means Building The Planes In India. In mid-October, the government of India kicked off a new program to attract foreign aircraft makers to build military fighter jets for the Indian Air Force in India using the foreign companies’ technology. India is dangling an initial quantity of some 200 single-engine fighter planes, with the possibility of hundreds more. According to a report at Defense News, the Indian Ministry of Defense has invited “some overseas participants” to bid on the program. India reportedly would prefer a government-to-government transaction based on pricing and trials from invited vendors. The United States, Sweden and Russia are allegedly the leading contenders, with Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT), Saab and, probably, Russia’s United Aircraft as the expected bidders. In late September, India signed an agreement with France to acquire 36 Dassault Rafale fighter jets for a reported $8.85 billion. According to a report from Reuters, the deal with Dassault was originally supposed to include 126 of the twin-engine Rafale’s, but no agreement could be reached on the terms of production in India. Lockheed Martin has offered to transfer the entire production of its F-16 fighter to India, making the country the exclusive producer of the single-engine F-16. Saab, makers of the Gripen single-engine fighter, has also said that it is ready and able to produce the planes in India. Defense News reported that the new fighter program is intended to replace 11 squadrons Russian MiG 21s and MiG 27s that are being retired over the next 10 years. Each squadron consists of 18 planes each, for a total of 198 aircraft. The total could go much higher however: The Indian Air Force is already facing shortage of combat jets as it has around 33-34 operational fighter squadrons, while officials believe they would need 45 squadrons in a hypothetical confrontation with China or Pakistan. Forty-five squadrons equal 810 aircraft :: The F-16, the Gripen and the Rafale are fourth-generation fighters. The U.S. Air Force’s single-engine F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is a fifth-generation aircraft, as is the twin-engine Russian Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA that is expected to begin deliveries to the Russian Air Force next year. India and Russia signed an agreement in 2007 to develop a fifth-generation fighter based on the PAK-FA, but the deal has foundered on disagreements over technology transfer, costs and the number of aircraft to be built. make in india, indian air force, mig 35, saab gripen, f 16 india, gripen india, indian air force jets, made in india, gripen, indian air force planes, jas 39 gripen, indian air force news, indian air force strength, indian air force fighter planes, air force india, indian air force aircraft, indian air force future fighter planes, iaf news, the indian air force, indian air force future fighter aircraft Bicycle - Reunited by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100870 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/c/GlobalConflict7

Bikers Learn Marine’s Remains Being Shipped FedEx, Ride 2,000 Miles To Keep That From Happening The men and women who protect our freedom deserve the utmost honor and respect, even more so when they make the ultimate sacrifice and give their own lives in the line of duty. Staff Sgt. Jonathan Turner is one such hero. After seven tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, he died in California from combat-related injuries one year after he retired. U.S. Marines Staff Sgt. Jonathan Turner served seven tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He recently died in California from combat-related issues. When the Patriot Guard Riders heard Turner's ashes were going to be mailed home to Georgia, they got busy making other plans. Patriot Guard members, including those from Oklahoma, are stepping in to help provide the brave Marine with a dignified final trip across the country ... back to his mother's arms again. Read more here: The 41-year-old veteran’s family lives in Georgia and was not able to attend his funeral in California. The military planned to send Turner’s remains to them once the ceremony was over, but that’s when the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) stepped in. PGR is an organization of bikers who attend the funerals of military members, firefighters, and police officers and protect those funerals from protestors and . They also fill out the attendance at funerals for indigent and homeless veterans, perform volunteer work for veteran’s organizations, and host homecoming celebrations for troops coming home from overseas. When PGR found out Turner’s remains were going to be shipped home in a FedEx box, they knew they could not let that happen. “The California Patriot Guard Riders contacted all of the state captains from California to Georiga and explained the situation, that it was not proper to ship this hero home via FedEx,” explained Jeff Goodiel of the Georgia Patriot Guard Riders. “Within days, a convoy was assembled with each state’s Patriot Guard Riders driving Turner’s cremated remains across their state and then passing those remains off to the next group of riders.” Event organizers say this was the longest trip of its kind, with hundreds of volunteers transporting the remains more than 2,000 miles across the country. To Turner’s family, the respect and honor that PGR showed him meant the world. “It’s heartwarming, to see all these people here,” said Turner’s mother, Annie Glanton. “I know that he was loved by a lot of people.” The riders say honoring Turner in this way was well worth the effort. “Turner was a great leader who inspired his fellow Marines, both in the Corps and in daily life,” their website reads. “You were his friend if you knew him for five minutes or five years. He would give you the shirt off his back.” Were you touched by the way these bikers honored this fallen Marine? Then share it!

This video shows you that India Navy Keeping Its Powder Dry, Confident Of Prevailing Over China. India is closely tracking Chinese warships and submarines in the ongoing shadow-boxing for the same strategic space in the Indian Ocean region (IOR), and remains confident it can prevail if push comes to shove in the maritime domain. "We keep a close eye on Chinese warships and submarines, including nuclear ones, and constantly monitor their movements in the IOR. We have the capabilities, assets and plans in place to tackle any threat or challenge," said Admiral Sunil Lanba on Friday, ahead of Navy Day on December 4. This comes soon after reports that China could well deploy its warships and submarines in conjunction with Pakistan Navy at Gwadar port, the gateway to the much-touted $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor till Xinjiang, to safeguard its trade and energy routes. While the Indian Navy recognises "the (Chinese) flag will go where the trade is", and has no intention of turning the ongoing "competition" in the IOR into "a conflict", it cannot lower its guard in its own strategic backyard. Just a few days ago, for instance, another Chinese conventional submarine docked for an operational turn-around (OTR) at Karachi. This is at least the sixth Chinese submarine — the nuclear ones usually alternate with diesel-electric ones — to pop up in the IOR since 2012. Pakistan, incidentally, is also now slated to get eight new attack diesel-electric submarines from China in an over $5 billion deal. Amid the ongoing heightened tensions with Pakistan, even as China steps up its naval forays into the IOR, Admiral Lanba said, "The Navy has holistically reviewed its employment philosophy to proactively deter any menace that may threaten our sovereignty." "Even today, the Navy has over 40 warships, four submarines and 12 aircraft deployed in waters around the Indian peninsular and island territories. We are capable and ready to safeguard our national maritime interests anytime, anywhere, every time," he added. The People's Liberation Army may enjoy a clear edge along the 4,057km line of actual control but Indian warships can — if required — threaten the energy sea lanes of China. Indian Navy is extensively using its Poseidon-8I long-range maritime patrol aircraft, armed with potent anti-submarine warfare capabilities, and other assets to keep tabs on Chinese warships or submarines lurking in the IOR. "Chinese submarines usually come on 90-day deployments to the IOR, with an OTR at Karachi after 45 days or so. But they have to surface while crossing the Malacca, Sunda or Lombox Straits since the waters there are not deep enough," said a senior officer. But India's own depleting underwater combat arm remains a big worry. India is down to just 13 old diesel-electric submarines and the nuclear-powered INS Chakra, which does not have nuclear missiles, on lease from Russia. India's first indigenous nuclear submarine, INS Arihant, was commissioned recently but it will also take some time to go on "deterrent patrols". In contrast, China has over 50 "deployable" submarines, including eight nuclear-powered ones. indian navy, pak navy, indian navy ships, indian navy news, navy india, the indian navy, navy pakistan, indian navy information, pakistan navy ships, indian navy chief, indiannavy, indian navy submarines, indian navy latest news, indian navy official site, pakistan navy aircraft carrier, pakistan navy vs indian navy, pakistan aircraft carrier, indian navy strength, pakistan navy news, indian navy officer Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/c/GlobalConflict7

www.DemocracyNow.org - The Wall Street Journal is reporting the CIA has made a series of secret concessions in its drone campaign after military and diplomatic officials complained large strikes were damaging the fragile U.S. relationship with Pakistan. Meanwhile, a trial is underway in Syracuse, New York, of 38 protesters arrested in April at the New York Air National Guard base at Hancock Field. The defendants were protesting the MQ-9 Reaper drones, which the 174th Fighter Wing of the guard has remotely flown over Afghanistan from Syracuse since late 2009. "Citizens have a responsibility to take action when they see crimes being committed," said retired Col. Ann Wright, one of the 38 on trial, to Democracy Now! Nov. 4. "And this goes back to WWII, when German government officials knew what other parts of the German government were doing in executing 6 million Jews in Germany and other places. That they took no action, and yet they were held responsible later through the Nuremberg trials. And that is the theory on which we are acting: That we see that our government is committing crimes by the use of these drones and that we, as citizens, have the responsibility to act."

This video shows you that China Here To Stay In Indian Ocean, Its Military Movement Cause For Concern: Navy Chief Sunil Lanba. The People’s Liberation Army-Navy (PLAN) is here to stay in the Indian Ocean and its military movement has fuelled concerns about China’s intent in the region, India’s senior-most military commander has said. Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba said the Navy is keeping a sharp eye on “the pattern and periodicity of extra-regional deployments” in the Indian Ocean Region. A fleet of 50 combat-ready Indian warships is carrying out round-the-clock surveillance, he said. “Their (PLAN) headquarters is now used to handling forward deployments. Over the last decade, China has developed the capacity to operate its warships at a great distance from its shores and for long periods of time,” Lanba said in an interview. He is the country’s top military leader as chairman, chiefs of staff committee — a panel consisting of the three service chiefs. Lanba’s comments come at a time when China’s growing military assertiveness in IOR is being discussed internationally. There were tensions between the US and China last week, with the Trump administration accusing China of directing powerful lasers at US aircraft flying over a Chinese military base in Djibouti. The navy chief said China had “deeper pockets” than India and it was “going about systematically” increasing its presence and investments in the region. “There is a degree of debt-dependence of countries such as Djibouti on China,” Lanba said. China began deploying troops to its first overseas naval base at Djibouti in the Horn of Africa in July 2017, in what some global experts said was the outcome of Beijing’s “debt-trap diplomacy”. Mounting debts have led countries such as Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Pakistan to give control of territories, which are of strategic significance, to China. The base in Djibouti has shored up China’s capabilities to sustain naval units in the Indian Ocean. In February, Lanba cautioned “weaker nations” to be watchful of the “intent under the garb of cooperation” of their economically and militarily superior partners. “China is very focused on the IOR to secure and further its national interests. And for this, it will strengthen and use its naval power,” said Sudarshan Shrikhande, a retired rear admiral. He said China would become a more capable and versatile sea power in the coming years and India would have to do a lot more to sharpen its naval edge. Lanba said the pattern of deployment of Chinese warships in the IOR was being mapped. “At any given time, they (China) have six to seven warships deployed in the region. Also, they send two conventional submarines to the area every year. This year we have detected no submarine movement,” he said, adding that the Indian Navy was focused on extending its own sustenance and reach in IOR. ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

WHY PAKISTAN HAS NO AIRCRAFT CARRIER? Currently 9 countries have Aircraft carriers in active service. An aircraft carrier is one of the most important tool for power projection as it is a miniature military base on the seas. Pakistan, a country with powerful military ,currently does not have Aircraft carrier. What is more interesting is that , neither it plans to have one in near future. It is one defense armament which it will sorely miss incase of any conflict. So whats the real reason not having even one Aircraft carrier ? The answer is Cost. Nimitz class carriers that US operates cost about $4.5 billion each. INS Vikrant being built in India for the Indian Navy costs about $3 Billion. And Queen Elizabeth class,which Britain is building will cost around $5.5 Billion each These figures doesn’t include the cost of aircrafts. Deploying 40 fighters cost, around 2 billion dollars. So the total initial cost is around 7 billion dollars. But this is not the end ,operating cost for a year is half a billion dollars. The annual defense budget of Pakistan is $7.6 billion which is shared by Army,Navy and Air force. This makes an Aircraft carrier out of reach of Pakistan military.

The Indian air force has launched a very ambitious $19.5 billion program to buy 110 military fighters. The problem is, the country’s Ministry of Defense says it is only a fact-finding exercise and there is no commitment from the government on the program as of now. The IAF on April 6 issued a Request for Information or RFI to all major global aviation companies to bid on the 110 fighter buy. Without mentioning the requirement of single or twin engine fighters, the service is seeking 82 single-seat and 28 twin-seat fighters. The RFI says that, “under the program, 16 aircraft will bring in fly away condition. The selected overseas original equipment manufacturers … will be asked to set up production line with Indian production agency under strategic partner’s policy”. “This RFI only outlines the fighter’s requirements for the service but there is no firm commitment from the government and it is not a firm procurement proposal,” one MoD official told Defense News. Global fighter manufacturers Boeing and Lockheed Martin, Dassault Aviation of France, European consortium Eurofighter, Saab of Sweden and United Aircraft Corporation of Russia are expected to submit response in three months. “So far, this entire process of selection of fighters has been very haphazard and lacking any systematic plan of the service,” an MoD official noted. Former MoD financial advisor Amit Cowshish added the the “RFI is meant only to obtain all manner of information from the prospective suppliers so as to make out a firm procurement proposal based on the feedback. It entails no commitment from the ministry’s side even to issue the tender, much less sign a contract.” “The IAF has issued an RFI for 110 fighters without mentioning the requirement of single engine/twin engine mainly to widen competition amongst various fighter manufacturers,” a defense official said. “The main emphasis of this RFI is on transfer of technology and performance based logistics.” “The ToT requirement is very exhaustive and also includes ToT of avionics, electronic warfare systems including missile approach warner, active electronically scanned array radar, engine and also for setting up the manufacturing unit in India,” retired IAF air marshal and defense analyst Daljit Singh said. “It is indeed a tall order for the OEM to provide so much of ToT.” “The extent of ToT sought through the new RFI is completely unrealistic,” said Vijainder K Thakur, a retired IAF squadron leader and defense analyst. “The OEM will demand a lot of money for the ToT pushing up unit costs to unrealistic levels, limiting our ability to buy more.” Singh noted that the Indian defense industry has a long way to go before it can start building its own planes. The service wants new fighters to have multiple mission capabilities, including air-to-air combat, striking ground targets, reconnaissance, electronic warfare and air-to-air refuelling — not to mention all weather capabilities. In mid-2007, the IAF also launched a similar $12 billion medium, multi-role combat aircraft, or MMRCA, program that was scrapped 10 years later without citing any reason. “This RFI is a repeat of the previous MMRCA program and it can only be done though the joint venture approach as a lot of hand holding would be needed by foreign OEM,” an industry source said. “However, it is also important for MoD to give private sector a thrust in terms of awarding programs.” “This RFI seems to be [looking for] a real-time super technology demonstrator rather than proven operational fighter,” an industry insider added. “It will be impossible for any foreign OEM to meet all tasks and this program has no merit unless IAF comes out with a well-defined tender for fighters in future.“ Source :- defensenews.com Background Music :- bensound.com Disclaimer- This channel is for defence related news worldwide .

China’s air force will send strategic bombers, fighter jets and transport aircraft to take part in war games in Russia this month, as Beijing tries to boost defence ties with Moscow. Among the Chinese military aircraft at the International Army Games on July 28 will be H-6K bombers, which have carried out patrols around the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait. Belarus, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Iran will also join the exercises. It is the first time the strategic bombers and Y-9 transport aircraft, which has a range of around 7,800km, will participate in overseas war games, a spokesman for the PLA Air Force said on Thursday. The H-6K bombers – with 1,600km air-launched cruise missiles and reportedly a combat range of 3,500km – conducted take-off and landing drills over the South China Sea in May, which Washington said would “raise tensions and destabilise the region”. It came after the US Air Force flew B-52 bombers in the “vicinity” of the South China Sea in late April. The bombers have also been deployed for encirclement exercises around Taiwan in a move seen as sending a warning to the pro-independence groups of the self-ruled island. Other Chinese military aircraft to be sent to the war games in Russia include J-10A fighters, JH-7A fighter-bombers and IL-76 transport aircraft. Yue Gang, a retired People’s Liberation Army colonel, said China’s main aim in joining the drills was to find out more about the strengths and weaknesses of its aircraft. “It is really difficult to know how big the gap is between the Chinese aircraft and the ones used by overseas air forces without joining overseas exercises like this,” he said. “So the aim is to learn from the advanced bombers of Russia.” Yue said the Chinese air force wanted to learn from Russia about both hardware development and pilot training. As well as the missions over the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait, the H-6K bombers have also been flown near the US territory of Guam in the western Pacific, triggering concerns that they may be used as part of a deterrence strategy aimed at America, and they could strike US aircraft carrier battle groups. Collin Koh, a maritime security expert at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, said the PLA Air Force was now playing a bigger role in China’s strategic defence, and the H-6K was a crucial part of its development. “There’s also an apparent desire to showcase the PLA Air Force’s strategic theatre capability through the bomber force,” Koh said. “However, before one only focuses on just the ‘peaceful’ or ‘confidence building’ aspect of military diplomacy, sending the bomber to an international event like this also has a hidden, somewhat subtle, coercive aspect of flexing muscle,” he said. Koh added that it would be seen as China trying to emphasise its growing military power by those involved in regional territorial disputes such as over the South China Sea, while for others it may be seen as Beijing’s latest bid to assert itself.

Defense Flash News : Chinese navy gets new comprehensive supply ship, Asia’s largest⚠ Chinese navy gets new comprehensive supply ship, Asia’s largest. The People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy's new supply ship is Asia's largest and will allow China's aircraft carrier fleet to fight further afield. The first Type 901 combat support ship, the Hulunhu (965), will form part of the Chinese aircraft carrier fleet. The domestically-made vessel, officially commissioned into service last Friday, is China's first comprehensive supply ship featuring a 4,800-ton displacement, the Cankao Xiaoxi newspaper reported. The Hulunhu will reportedly surpass the Japanese navy's integrated supply ship as Asia's largest comprehensive supply ship. "The combat radius of China's aircraft carrier could at least be doubled with the Hulunhu, and it would be capable of reaching Hawaii," Xu Guangyu, a retired rear admiral and senior adviser to the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association, told the Global Times. The Hulunhu has a greater load capacity for oil, water and ammunition, and is also faster, to compensate for the shortcomings of the aircraft carrier. Previous supply ships were smaller and slower, Xu said. It's 239.5 meters long and 30.5 meters wide, Cankao Xiaoxi reported. Xu said China's future aircraft carrier fleets will sail to wherever Chinese interests are located, including the Indian and Atlantic oceans. "China's navy might need at least 10 more such ships to support aircraft carriers as well other naval fleets," Xu said. More support ships and replenishment bases overseas are needed to sustain the Chinese navy's oceanic missions and combat capacity, Xu said. China has set up its own logistics base in Djibouti, a nation located in the northeast corner of Africa at the mouth of the Mandab Strait. Logistics bases may also be built in West Africa and Pakistan, Xu added. As a country with an 18,000 kilometer-long coastline and vast maritime resources under its watch, China needs to build a strong navy to protect its sovereignty and maritime interests, safeguard the security of strategic maritime waterways and engage in international cooperation, the PLA Daily said in April. ================================================= DISCLAIMER: Information, Facts or Opinion expressed in this Video are Presented as Sources and do not reflects views of Défense Flash News and hence Défense Flash News is not liable or responsible for the same.

India’s Navy is considering adding to its fleet of P-8I maritime patrol aircraft, as the country shifts its military posture toward its southern approaches out of concern about Chinese naval activity. India’s Naval Chief Adm. Sunil Lanba told India Strategic magazine that aerial-surveillance capability was an important part of navy operations, and the country’s Defense Ministry has said the P-8I is able to provide “a punitive response and maintaining a watch over India’s immediate and extended areas of interest.” New Dehli made its first purchase of the aircraft in 2009, not long after the November 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, during which attackers arrived by boat. India bought eight P-8I aircraft at the time, deploying them in 2013. It followed that with a purchase of four more in 2016, buying them at the 2009 price. “A number of measures have been taken since ’26/11′ to strengthen maritime, coastal, and offshore security by the concerned agencies in the country,” Lanba said, including expanding maritime security forces’ capabilities, enhancing surveillance in maritime zones, and streamlining intelligence-sharing. While Lanba did not say how many long-range maritime reconnaissance aircraft, like the P-8I, the Indian navy would ultimately require, his predecessors have said as many as 30. The P-8I, which is India’s variant of Boeing’s P-8 Poseidon aircraft, has some of the most sophisticated anti-submarine-warfare technology available, including Raytheon and Telefonics systems that provide 360-degree radar coverage. The plane also has a magnetic anomaly detector, which searches for shifts in the earth’s magnetic field created by a submarine’s hull. The aircraft can carry Harpoon anti-ship missiles, depth charges, Mk-54 torpedoes, and rockets. The Indian variant also has specific communications software and Identify Friend or Foe abilities, allowing it to interoperate with Indian naval and air force systems. They can also data-link with Indian submarines to share information about target vessels. ‘Our Navy is fully capable and ever ready’ :: Anti-submarine warfare has become a focal point for the Indian military, and the U.S. and India have held talks about related technology and tactics. Both countries have become increasingly wary of Chinese naval activity, particularly Chinese submarines, in recent years. China has also expanded its infrastructure in the region, including a presence at ports in Djibouti, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. India has been tracking Chinese submarines entering the Indian Ocean since 2013, and a 2015 U.S. Defense Department report confirmed that Chinese attack and missile submarines were operating there. The Kalvari, the first of six diesel-electric attack submarines designed by a French firm and built in India, was commissioned in December. Prime Minister Narendra Modi called the Kalvari a marquee example of the “Make in India” initiative, which aims to develop India’s domestic arms industry through collaboration with foreign firms. India has already contacted foreign shipbuilders about building six more nonnuclear subs. The navy, citing concerns about China, has called for a third nuclear-powered carrier that incorporates U.S. technology and is pushing ahead with plans to acquire such a carrier at an expected cost of nearly $25 billion. The plan includes a component of 57 fighter aircraft, for which U.S. F-18s and French Dassault Rafales are being considered. Aircraft acquisitions may push the price higher. The expense of acquiring such a ship has given India’s Defense Ministry pause, however, though others have argued that aircraft carriers are the best way to counter threats around the region. “As India does not have a policy of overseas basing, a carrier force remains the only suitable alternative for a regional power like India to conduct out-of-area contingencies,” retired Indian Vice Adm. Shekhar Sinha wrote in December 2016. The Indian navy has one operational carrier, INS Vikramaditya, which is a Russian Kiev-class carrier-cruiser overhauled by Moscow for the Indian navy between 2004 and 2013.
