Fallout International Defence Green and White Papers

Since there seems to be some interest in threads on this, I thought I might give it a home. This strictly covers defence only papers.
UK MOD Green paper on budget:
http://www.army-technology.com/features/feature77197/
Russian White paper concerning military doctrine for 2010:
http://www.army-technology.com/downl...tion/file1208/ This was prepared by NATO.
Brazilian White Paper on national defence strategy:
http://www.army-technology.com/downl...tion/file1056/
These all require Adobe software to download the PDF files.
Enjoy and happy reading!
Regards,
Pat

Three more for your review.
U.S. 2010 Quadrennial Defence Review WP:
http://www.army-technology.com/downl...port/file1281/
Turkey seems to be on the rise, this 2007 Defence WP might give some perspective on what they thought then, and where they are at today:
http://www.army-technology.com/downl...ation/file967/
Since I hope to be there for my 25th "WA", Ireland WP why not?
http://www.army-technology.com/downl...tion/file1030/
Education leads to understanding, understanding leads to perspective which in turn leads to wisdom, well hopefully anyway.

Pat

Thought there might be some interest in this article as it concerns the third largest defence spending country in the world:

A thought that U.S. consumerism has lead to the rise of the Chinese Military:

Not paid much attention to recently but USA certainly help fund China, in the turmoil the financal world is in at the moment guess who probably is suffering the least.
Consumerism yes Chinas GDP follows a general rise but what about debt who do you think USA owes a lot of those Trillions to.
The West no we are in the same shape try Asia if I remember correctly China & Japan own nearly half of the USA treasury so it makes sense to put the money made from that into the militrary for when you decide its time to stop lending.
What happens then USA collapses as no one underwrites the debt, then China says dont default on the payments or else. Give it a year or 2 to go pear shaped then ask for land in payment as it is now worth a fraction of what it was.
Who needs to invade now instead of Hong Kong being their gateway to the world they can revive the USA following the legal battle.
Hyperthetical of course

Fallout Re: International Defence Green and White Papers

Been awhile.
1. A very interesting article on why NATO shouldn't back down on the missile defense program due to the Russian overwhelming advantage in tactical nukes.
http://www.defpro.com/daily/details/629/

2. The role of the Danish Military 2010-2014 as presented by their government.
http://www.army-technology.com/downl...ural/file1439/

3. A very interesting read from President Sarkozy on Frances reintergration into NATO.
http://www.army-technology.com/downl...tion/file1376/

I'll have more on France in another thread, something I predicted (Through good research.) that will also answer a question of a certain type of munitions being developed. FRES anyone?

Good Night!

Regards,
Pat

Good find Pat AMAP-ADS looks a leap in the right direction welcome to the world of superconductors & capacitors.
No ammo, minimal extra risk to freindlys, incredibly quick reaction time allowing short range intercepts & by the sounds of it even spoils kinetic projectiles. If it does what it says with any efficency weapon design is back to the drawing board. Say hello to our freind Mr CM arty to overwhelm or strip it, otherwise its EMP if feasable or serious jamming.

The taken with a grain of salt till now British Electric Armor may in fact work on a similar principle for defeating the projectile just as it hits so no sensors.

Fallout Re: International Defence Green and White Papers

I posted a couple of articles a short time back where within them thay specifically stated that CM/Smart arty was going to be the immediate counter measure. I just posted a couple of months ago in the SPA/SPAA thread the upgrade to our 155mm towed arty targeting system that'll allow a one shot one kill at 5 miles
(~8.5Km?) for a conventional round. Lets not forget about EXCALIBUR and other similar rounds again an over the horizon one shot one kill munition that we've been using it quite regularly in Afghanistan. All it really needs is a camera with GPS and your dead. But I believe the new multi purpose 120mm round now being used by the IDF for the upgraded MERKAVA 4 and Germany with the upgraded Leopard can counter some of this. See the second "Future Weapons" video I posted under the MBT thread in one of my last posts concerning the MERKAVA when we were in the troop carrying discussion on it. But there's always KISS, rely on conventional targeting to minimise targeting transmissions and go with your "gut and training" aim and shoot, providing they still teach those methods!?! Bottom line arty will be viable for sometime to come to counter the armored threat.

Regards,
Pat

Fallout Re: International Defence Green and White Papers

Alright a new system here that falls in line with the defpro.com articles I posted earlier this week Pt I & II on armor protective systems. Before you read this I want you to have this thought in your head, you're walking along in the desert but your properly outfitted as you planned well and it's a good thing because this just saved your life. You were distracted by your surroundings and didn't hear the rattle, you happen to look down and there's a western diamondback rattlesnake ready to strike, you try to avoid it, thank god you had a pair of snake boots on. Why? Because by the time you saw it and your mind perceived the threat, it has already struck and has recoiled to strike again, all in less then half a second. These systems react in milliseconds. This system I'm sure is in line with what I would think is the reaction time for TROPHY, IRONFIST and others coming on line.

Fallout Re: International Defence Green and White Papers

This first is a summary article of the programs cut and or saved by the 8% reduction in Britain's defence budget. The link to the full article published yesterday is included which also shows troop level reductions etc. The question now is who's next with these kind of reductions? We're close by about half I believe now. For the game all RAF HARRIER types will be retired by the end of 2011. Recommend end date change to Dec. 2011 to keep things simple.
http://www.defpro.com/daily/details/677/

Next analysis of being "reasonable" in peacekeeping citing the issues of Britain and the question of Northern Ireland.
http://www.defpro.com/daily/details/669/

Next a good article on countering the Bio-Terrorism threat, take advantage of the linked articles at the bottom.
http://www.army-technology.com/features/feature98029/

Take care and have a great weekend!

Regards,
Pat
