Weekly Mil-Tech Update:

Busy week here in the world of military technology.  An oxygen problem grounds F-22’s.  China still making headlines this week with more videos of their J-20 whizzing around.  Their carrier, the Shi Lang, is still on schedule to hit the water by years end.  Their drone capability is more noise than anything at this point.  Nice try, I would still buy Israeli though.

Precision mortar’s are going to change some routines for the Taliban this summer.  Link it up with target aquasition radar, which will locate directly where enemy fire is coming from, and you’ll raze some landscape, and raise the body count.

The aging F-15 is still wooing the crowds at airshows.  In Moscow, the Russians did not allow their new PAK-FA to fly, leaving the American bird to the spoils.  The T-50 is listed to fly later this summer in August.

Precision mortars will cause high casualties for insurgents this summer
