  • China's aircraft carrier puts naval ambitions on show
    At a northern quayside China's first aircraft carrier dwarfs nearby vessels, its take-off ramp rising higher than the top deck of the cruise ship at the next berth, symbolising the country's naval ambitions.

    Dalian, where the Liaoning was refitted and undergoes regular maintenance, looks out over the Bohai strait, gateway to the Yellow Sea, and beyond it, Japan and the Pacific Ocean.

    Beijing proclaims that China's rise is entirely peaceful and it has no interest in hegemony, but analysts say its goal is to surpass the naval capability of Japan's Self-Defense Forces and ultimately rival the US Navy, masters of the Pacific.

    That will require a number of aircraft carrier battle groups, developed over decades and costing billions of dollars.

    The 300-metre (1,000-foot) Liaoning -- a Soviet-era vessel Beijing bought from Ukraine -- was commissioned in September 2012, and officers have acknowledged that it is not yet ready for combat, with naval fighter pilots taking years to train.

    But it is only the first Chinese vessel of its type. Analysts say future carriers will be entirely Chinese-made and ultimately nuclear-powered, vastly extending their range.

    The People's Liberation Army (PLA) is already the world's largest standing military, and when Chinese President Xi Jinping went on board the Liaoning last year he spoke of building "a powerful people's navy".

    Xi has made a point of visiting several military bases since taking office and has said that "being able to fight and win battles is the essence of strengthening the military".

  • Ang alam ko nasa long-term stage (mga 2020s pa) ng Modernization plan yung Leopard 2 eh. Sa mga top MBTs kasi eh sya yung medyo "affordable", pero obviously relative lang yun sa iba, wala naman talagang murang MBT eh. Compared sa Leclerc, Ariete, M1 Abrams, at Challenger 2, "cheaper" sya.

    Although personally maganda para sa armed forces natin yung Type 90 ng Japan. Specifically designed kasi yun sa physique ng mga Asians. Maraming 6-footer na sundalo sa Western countries, pero sa mga bansa tulad ng Japan at Pilipinas, kahit "above average" na yung height ng mga sundalo compared sa civilians, hindi pa rin sila ganun katangkaran, kasi 5'9" ata ang average ng mga sundalo sa Asian countries. Eh yun ang average height ng karamihan ng Western countries. 5'6"-5'7" ang average height ng karamihan ng Asian countries.

    May kamahalan sya as a "new" tank, pero dahil may Type 10 na ang Japan as a replacement, posibleng maka-mura rin sa pagkuha ng Type 90...

  • Some locals believe the Chinese teach school children that those territories used to belong to China. Therefore there is a deeply rooted fear that in the near future Chinese government may claim those territories back. It is very difficult to refute this belief especially since some Chinese support the idea of territorial belonging to China. “I’ve heard that this place was once part of the People’s Republic of China,” said one Chinese visitor in Vladivostok to a BBC reporter. “We’ve come to have a look at it.” When he was asked whether China would like to get these territories back, he replied: “Sure we want to, when our country is great and strong, we’ll take it back.”

    hahaha ma kakarma din ang USSR
  • mukhang di parin matutuloy yung brand new frigate. nawala sa SONA ni PNOY.

    Pag-usapan naman natin ang seguridad. Mulat po tayo sa mga hamon sa bansa, at alam din nating mahal ang kailangan nating mga kagamitan. Ngayon po, ikinalulugod kong iulat sa inyo: Tuloy-tuloy ang modernisasyon ng AFP. Nakuha na natin ang brand new na 8 Sokol Combat Utility Helicopters, tatlong AgustaWestland-109 helicopters, at ang kauna-unahang landing craft utility ship na ginawa dito mismo sa ating bansa, ang BRP Tagbanua. Dumating na rin po ang apat na refurbished UH-1 helicopters at 2 navy cutters. Nito namang nakaraang Mayo, pinasinayaan na rin natin ang state-of-the-art Command Center ng Naval Forces West sa Palawan.

    Sa susunod na taon, lalapag na ang 2 sa 12 na FA-50 lead-in fighter trainer jets na binili natin. Ang natitira naman po, inaasahan nating maide-deliver bago matapos ang 2017. Target din nating makuha ang karagdagang brand new na 8 Bell combat utility helicopters, 2 anti-submarine helicopters, 10 pang AgustaWestland-109 helicopters, 2 light-lift aircraft, 3 medium-lift aircraft, mga radar system at iba pang kagamitang magpapaunlad sa kakayahan ng ating Sandatahang Lakas. Samantala po, sa Setyembre ng taong ito, inaasahan ang pagdating ng karagdagang 17 refurbished UH-1 helicopters.
  • Heto ang isang pupurnada sa Modernization ng AFP pag nagkataon. Lekat kase na DAP yan, Big deal na big deal kuno sa mga leftist at kung sinu sinu pang kalaban ng gobyerno

    Ex-generals plotting vs. PNoy admin, Trillanes claims

    Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Tuesday claimed that some retired associated with former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo are plotting against the Aquino administration.

    A report on GMA News TV's News TV Live quoted Trillanes, a former Navy officer, as alleging that these retired generals are meeting with active military officials and egging them to destabilize the government.

    Trillanes, however, did not name the retired generals.

    In the same television report, Trillanes believed that any destabilization efforts against the Aquino administration will fail.

    Incidentally, Trillanes was jailed during the Arroyo administration for his involvement in the July 2003 Oakwood mutiny. He was again charged in connection with the Manila Peninsula standoff in November 2007. Trillanes was later freed from detention in December 2010.

    Reached for comments, lawyer Ferdinand Topacio, legal counsel of Mrs. Arroyo, dismissed Trillanes' claims.

    “I think Senator Trillanes does not have any idea of what he is talking about. He does not know the first thing about coup d'etat. The so-called coup he planned and participated in were lousy and ended miserably for him with his tail behind his legs. He does not know whereof he speaks,” Topacio said in a text message as reported by GMA News TV's News Tv Live..

    Just last week, Armed Forces chief Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang Jr. denied rumors of a coup after the Supreme Court voted unanimously to strike down as unconstitutional specific acts under the Aquino administration's Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).

    "Walang coup," Catapang said. "We are focused on our job kasi may mas malaki tayong hinaharap."

    Meanwhile, Armed Forces public information chief Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala maintained that they have not monitored any destabilization efforts among active members of the military.

    “There is no recruitment nor any move within the active service to do such (activities). On the retired (officers), as you know once you are member of the military, there are certain liberties that you've surrendered such as freedom of speech, freedom to assemble. However, the retired (officers) have regained that already so they may speak, they can attend rallies,” Zagala said during a press conference.

    “But as far as destabilization within the ranks of the AFP, there is none. Now, if the retired (officers) wish to speak against the government or conduct rallies, that is inherent in our Bill of Rights. We have no control over them,” he added.

    Zagala likewise said there is no restriction for active officers to meet with retired officers, although he cautioned those still in the service to be more 'discerning.'

    “We advise our officers to be discerning and we are confident that the level of professionalism is very high that's why there are no news of any destablization plot within the active service,” he said.

    On the retired officers allegedly critical of the Aquino administration, Zagala said: “As long as they don't instigate taking of arms, I don't think we will have a problem. I think it is but natural for our retired (officers) to speak on issues. The active (officers) they also have opinions, however they should keep it to themselves." — Andrei Medina and Amita Legaspi/RSJ, GMA News

  • @wan2tri

    masaya na din yung mga quick response na infantry wheeled carrier na pwede lagyan ng 120mm na kanyon.. tulad ng stryker or yung gamit now ng PH army. mas mabilis kasi kumilos, masmagaan at madali maproduce hehe.
  • 120mm cannons are of limited use against insurgents. and malabo naman na mag invade sa main islands ang china
  • @MieliExomemory

    we are not talking about a possible invasion. I'm just dreaming of militray hardware hehe and further more.. mabuti ng meron magamit pag kailangan kesa walang magamit. sa insurgents mas ok pa din mg infantry carrier na may remote operated na machine gun turret, active protection system and life support as the main option hehe. mga pagong lang ang tatamaan ng 120 mm main cannon.
  • oh kung dream lang then libre naman mangarap
  • A 1976 Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR3 jump jet (left) and a 1988 Panavia Tornado F3 were sold at auction

    Two ex-RAF jets put up for auction in Northamptonshire with no reserve price have gone to private buyers.

    A 1976 Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR3 jump-jet has been bought by a man from Essex for £105,800.

    A woman pilot who flew this type of aircraft bought the 1988 Panavia Tornado F3 for £36,800.

    Silverstone Auctions, which sold the aircraft, did not name the buyers but described the sale as a "unique opportunity" to acquire "RAF history".

    Nick Whale. the managing director of Silverstone Auctions, said: "We're very pleased that we've been able to secure such good prices for these historic fighter planes.

    "There was a fantastic atmosphere in the room and a great sense of anticipation ahead of the sale.

    "The Harrier certainly proved popular with the crowds and after some strong bidding the hammer went down to the sound of rapturous applause."

    The Harrier, which served during the Cold War and in the Falklands, is in almost flight-worthy condition and comes complete with ejector seat.
    1988 Panavia Tornado F3 The Tornado has carried out 3,000 hours of active service

    1976 Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR3 jump jet The Harrier was in almost perfect condition, auctioneers said

    The auction house said the Harrier was preserved in "almost time-capsule conditions" and had "serious potential for a future return to flight".

    It said this was likely to be the only time a Tornado F3 was offered for auction as the entire fleet had either been scrapped or was in museums.

    No guide prices was offered for the jets as their rarity made cost "nearly impossible to gauge", Mr Whale said

    "We've never offered anything like this before and it's a privilege to be able to offer one of, if not the finest, Harriers in the world.

    "We've sold an eclectic range of historic vehicles in the past but these really are some of the most exciting yet."
