    Air policing: securing NATO airspace
    https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/topics_132685.htm

    Russia Declares There’s No Such Thing as ‘NATO Airspace
    http://r.search.aol.com/_ylt=Awr9DumZJ4ZbJ4IASy1pCWVH;_ylu=X3oDMTBya2cwZmh2BGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwM1BHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--/RV=2/RE=1535547417/RO=10/RU=http%3a%2f%2fobserver.com%2f2016%2f02%2frussia-declares-theres-no-such-thing-as-nato-airspace%2f/RK=0/RS=dTBbxyHQIS5et_N25TjMdICLdIc-

    Is there really such a thing as NATO airspace?
    http://www.atimes.com/is-there-really-such-thing-as-nato-airspace/

    If NATO members' ships deploy to the Sea of Japan & China's Seas, they may claim the airspace above them is also NATO's. Australia & Japan r major non-NATO allies & their ships can do the same. After many of its members were involved in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, & Syria, NATO ops r not restricted to Europe any more.

    Plan of strategic exercises "East-2018"

    Still, the most interesting is the participation of the PLA military contingent in the exercises. All the "Peaceful Missions" are declared as antiterrorist exercises of the SCO countries, and their scale is not very large. But the participation of the People's Liberation Army in purely Russian strategic military exercises is a step forward to a new level of military cooperation between Russia and China.

    Chinese are supposed to take part to only one part of the exercices. The most interesting exercice with China was when they simulated an attack against an island ...

    Russia’s massive military exercise with China aimed at Pacific leverage
    There are those who believe Vostok 2018 was designed against China as the operational threat, and that China’s participation was an afterthought. Instead, 3,200 elite Chinese soldiers will deploy to the Tsugol Training range in the Trans-Baikal region of Russia, part of Russia’s Eastern Military District close to the Chinese border.

    This is also to show that they stand together & that it will be futile to drive a wedge between them anytime soon.
    Mongolia is now similar to Romania inside the old Warsaw Pact: she was allowed more independent foreign policy but could be invaded at any time. They better not abuse this privilege!

    But not of the PRC. They love Dalai Lama & practice Tibetan Buddhism. I've been there. What is now Outer Mongolia was part of the Qing Empire & was a Soviet unofficial 16th republic since 1924 to 1991.

    All Mongolian leaders are fans of Russia because of China's fear. Mongolia gained its Independence with Russian aid after all

    And it's alphabet.

    Also, they owe them big time for saving their bacon at Khalkin Ghol back in the 30's.



    Interesting tidbit about drills: East and Central military districts​ are wargaming against West and South.




    Some cool screengrabs (40 of them) on BMPD but this is my favorite part so far, love the ATV/Lynx/Mi-26 combo thumbsup

    Maybe but against many IFVs and old tanks it will still be effective, and is utterly lethal against light vehicles and trucks.  Useful against bunkers as well.

    Compared to Kornet, the HJ-73C/D missile is only marginally inferior in terms of armor penetration behind ERA. It does have reduced range and slower speed, but for self defense it is more than adequate.
    If the Chinese wanted a more potent missile installed on this type of vehicle, they have a range of domestically produced options to choose from.

    HJ-8 ( wire guided - 4 km, proved to be quite effective in Syria and other places, despite its age )
    HJ-9A ( laser-beam-riding & MMW radar - 5+ kilometers )
    HJ-11 ( semi active laser guidance - range unknown?)
    HJ-12 ( infrared homing - 4km fire & forget )

    These weapons are small and can easily be integrated onto vehicles, even replacing the HJ-73.

    Video of exercises of the Navy and VKS of Russia in the Mediterranean Sea, held from September 1 to 8, 2018.

    In the Mediterranean Sea, for the first time in the history of modern Russia, the exercises of the grouping of the forces of the Navy and the Russian Air Force were held. The event was attended by 26 warships and vessels of the Russian Navy, including two submarines, as well as Tu-160, Tu-142, Il-38, Su-33 and Su-30SM aircraft. The flagship of the grouping is the Northern Fleet missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov. During the exercises, the tasks of anti-submarine warfare and anti-aircraft defense, protection of maritime communications, countering piracy and rendering assistance to a ship in distress were worked out, as well as practical rocket and artillery fire.
