    It is funny that women want equal rights until it comes time for the haircut in the army...

    Oh dont get me started with women and their so called "equal" rights, these bitches want all the benefits, but non of the responsibilities and consequences.

    Send them to the front, that is a quarenteed way to start a baby boom.
    I am honestly suprised Putin did not hint at female consciption to young women who do not fullfill their maternal duties to the country.

    Lockheed Martin recently delivered to the US Army the first of four prototype Typhon weapon systems, one of several systems the service is developing as part of its long-term plan for long-range precision fires.

    Also dubbed the Mid-Range Capability (MRC), Typhon is designed to fire Standard Missile-6 or Tomahawk missiles around the range gap between the Precision Strike Missile and the Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon. The former reaches approximately 300 miles while the latter is envisioned to travel up to 1,725 miles.

    Biden Energy Secretary Wants All US Military Vehicles To Be Electric By 2030

    As if the US military was not already crippled by woke activism at the highest levels of the Department of Defense, the latest news suggests that the nation's military vehicle fleet will be hobbled as well.  

    Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, a Canadian born lawyer with no military background, testified Wednesday to the Senate Armed Services Committee that she supported requiring the United States military to move to an all-electric vehicle fleet by 2030.  That's less than seven years.

    The US Army chose the proposals of General Dynamics and Rheinmetall in the competition for a promising infantry fighting vehicle  to replace the Bradley IFV

    Hahaha... the last time they asked was 2019 and they only got one company interested.

    This time around it is the company that makes the Bradleys and Abrams tanks, and the other offer is the company that makes Leopard II tanks.

    Should be interesting.

    Not specifically US Army but I couldn't find a more appropriate thread.

    🇺🇸🇲🇱 Millions of Pentagon emails, including classified ones, went to Africa by mistake.

    At the Pentagon, they have email with .mil (military) in the end but many make a mistake and write .ml. that is the Internet domain of the African country Mali. Under an agreement with the authorities, the domain is maintained by the Dutchman Johannes Zuurbier. It was he who noticed 10 years ago that thousands of messages from the Pentagon, including secret ones, were sending to African servers. Johannes has been trying to get through to the Americans all these ten years, drawing their attention to the leak. He also acted through the US Embassy in Mali. But no one cared, and the guy was ignored.

    Today the Dutchman's contract with Mali ends and he will hand over all cases, including the archive of emails.

    By the way, Russia has good relations with Mali 😁

    And emails from Pentagon continue to arrive.

    The AH-64s get more capable:

    Abrams upgrade scrapped after Leopards tank in UkraineThe US Army has reportedly canceled its planned upgrade of the Abrams Tank and is considering a different approach for the tank’s future. The Army is basically saying the tank is too heavy and too vulnerable to enemy weapons. Heavy European tanks and armored vehicles have faced operational problems in Ukraine, often getting stuck in the mud or running out of fuel.

    Too heavy and too vulnerable to enemy weapons?

    The change is that they used to say that it was heavy but that was to make it invulnerable to enemy weapons... interesting change of tunes... almost like the extra cost of making such big heavy things that snort fuel like a rock star snorts cocaine wasn't worth the money.

    Every decade or so since the 1980s someone has been popping up in the US saying the Abrams is too heavy and they need a smaller lighter vehicle that uses less fuel but carries a big gun... they always went through all the things and they always ended up with a T-90AM except obviously with a 120mm HATO smoothbore because that is their weapon of choice.

    But then the idea disappears and it takes another 10 years for someone else to come up with a brand new idea for a new tank with only 3 crew and an autoloader and about 45 tons etc etc...

    BTW that Apache upgrade is just taking old Apaches that don't have the mast mounted radar and putting a EW and communications mast there so it can communicate with drones and ground units... that is the sort of thing they likely wont do with the Mi-28 because they are doing it with the Ka-52... with wingtip mounted antenna etc.

    In the case of the US it was to replace the Kiowa helo... honestly... how long would a Hughes 500 last on a modern front line... that huge bubble canopy is great for visibility but terrible for protection.
