    If you click on the reply button and on the reply page look at the icons above the area where you type.
    In the top (of two) rows on the far right hand side if you place your arrow pointer over the icons they tell you what they do.
    Move from right to left and you will see the icon with an image and a floppy disc says "host an image" to the left immediately above where you type.
    Click that and it will open a fixed window that allows you to find photos or pictures on your computer or network.
    I normally choose in the dropdown box to resize the image to 800 pixels so they are not too big and then click on the upload button.
    After a few seconds another box will open with links to a thumbnail and the image and something else I can't recall off the top of my head.
    Highlight and copy the link for the image and paste it into your text.
    Edit: The third link is the link URL which will take you to the picture on the site that is hosting the image.
    The only problem I have had with it is that the box will not disappear so I recommend doing the text in the reply before adding the pictures.

    ye like Eire, no bloody idea why we bought Pilatus PC-9 when the Yak was a far better choice??? I think both are equally enough priced (take guidance on that!) i know it would cost the govt more to up keep them but really.....in fact i'm not sure why we dont use Russian gear over the more heavily priced European/US equipment??

    No mate - bloody hopeless; give up. I uploaded to the host site; the stupid window wouldn't close (yes, you warned of that),then I couldn't find what I had uploaded to imbed it. Somewhere on some hosting site, I have some photos!

    What can I say.

    When you click on the host it button and it shows those three links (ie thumbnail, link to image, link to image on host url) you have to copy the middle link completely and paste that on your page.

    If you ignore it and click on the button to take you back to load a new pic I have no idea how to find the pics you have uploaded.

    Most other forums don't do this for you and you have to go and find your own website to host pictures for you...

    SUNBURN FTW!!!!

    Aren't these strap-on rocket boosters being outdated today because of their bulkiness???

    The sunburn does not use strap on boosters.

    The Sunburn is a combined rocket ramjet powered missile.

    The ramjet engine of the Sunburn means there is a big empty area right down its centre that acts as a jet engine when the missile is in flight.
    Previously it was standard practise to put booster rockets around it like the SA-4, but because there is a big empty space inside the missile what the Soviets did was put a huge solid rocket booster inside the empty ramjet space. When the rocket burns out the air intake at the front opens and air comes in and fuel is added and it lights up its ramjet engine and continues to the target.

    It doesn't need wrap around engines or a booster stage to make it longer (it is already about 9m long and about 5 tons anyway.)

    The same design solution is used in the SA-6 SAM, the Kh-31 ARM/AShM and the Yakhont/Brahmos/Onyx.

    The British Sea Dart Naval SAM is ramjet powered but uses an external rocket booster to accelerate it up to a speed where its ramjet can start efficiently. This makes the missile longer than it could have been if the rocket booster was internal.

    Yeah enough of the "Old dog" bit - I'm still fit and active.

    The old saying... you're only as old as the woman you feel... Shocked



    Will this vehicle play the tank in the future Russian Army light brigade?

    The Sprut might be used in the VDV and for the Marines, and perhaps even the medium brigades (with perhaps a bit of extra modular armour to get it up to about 30 tons or so with loss of amphibious capability perhaps) while the heavy brigades use T-90s and upgraded T-72s from storage as tanks with perhaps tank based APCs and fire support vehicles based on the BMP-4M?

    I just thought this video of the RPO-M was fucking insane, especially at 2:47.

    Yes ,Smerch is professional but don't forget Iskander and TopolM ... they have equal capablities

    Quite true, but I think he mean Tochka-U rather than Topol.

    Iskander in many ways is an evolution of a missile to replace the Scud, while the Tochka is an evolution of a missile to replace the FROG-7 unguided ballistic rocket.

    Iskander is a direct evolution of Tochka-U which was a replacement for Scud and Luna.

    I always thought they were separate development strands even though they both can use the same warhead configurations and guidance systems.

    The Iskander branch of development was effected by the INF treaty,
    whereas the Tochka started out with a range of something like 90km and has increased to 120 and then about 190km in the current model.

    The Iskander on the other hand was developed through the Oka missile, what the west calls the SS-23 Spider (the Tochka being called SS-21 Scarab). The deployment and development of the Oka was terminated by the INF treaty.

    It makes sense to me that Tochka was a replacement for FROG-7 because of its range performance (ie 90km, 120km, 190km), and the Oka and then Iskander were replacement for the theatre range Scuds as their ranges were 450km and about 480km respectively.
    Unfortunately Gorby decided to include the 450km range Oka in the list of weapons banned under the INF treaty even though its range means it shouldn't have been included.

    The Oka and Iskander are both based on the development of the Tochka. All these missiles were produced by KBM so much of the technology is similar. Oka is essentially the missile of Iskander and guidance of Tochka. Iskander is the product of the experience for these two missiles. Oka was a nuclear weapon in its day banned by treaty. Tochka is being directly replaced by Iskander. The Scud and Luna were given up long ago to pursue these better precision weapons. If anything remained of Scud in inventory, it certainly wasn't active by the fall of CCCP.

    They probably gave away a lot of Scuds... have read they used very large numbers in Afghanistan and they were used during and after the Soviet presence there.

    It is a little sad that the Iskander is replacing the Tochka as both seem to be very useful weapons. I expect the Tochka being smaller and lighter would be cheaper and useful for roles that don't demand a long range, whereas the Iskander would have the ability to penetrate defended airspace better with its flight profile.
