  1. If you haven't seen this movie already, I recommend it for the adrenaline and nostaglia rush alone. Put your technical knowledge in park, of course, and enjoy the ride. ** Spoilers ** For the F-14 lovers out there -- our own TonyE included -- you won't be disappointed. 😁
  2. A Brutal Examination: Russian Military Capability in Light of the Ukraine War (Survival, 30 May 2022)
  3. Command Investigation of the Apparent Striking of a Submerged Object by USS Connecticut (SSN 22) While Underway in the U.S. Seventh Fleet Area of Operations on 2 October 2021 (Commander, Pacific Fleet)
  4. A battleset that centers on the Strait of Malacca would need a significantly better and more focused map than we have presently, imho. The Strait is relatively long, but it is quite narrow and chock full of islands at its eastern entrance, all of which would potentially come into play in a naval warfare scenario.
  5. First Artwork of Hypersonic Missiles on Zumwalt-class Destroyers (Naval News)
  6. Road to Damascus : The Russian Air Campaign in Syria, 2015 to 2018 (RAND)
  7. The Most Serious Russian Violation of the New START Treaty Yet (RCD, 16 May 2022)
  8. Antiship Missile Lessons from Sinking of the Moskva (Proceedings, May 2022)
  9. Russia Likely has Local Air Superiority in Donbas, but it May Not Matter (RUSI)
  10. Russian submarine rescue ship Kommuna reportedly headed to the site of the Moskva sinking.
  11. A similar modeling: Neptunes, the MOSKVA, and How Not to Sink a Cruiser (Real Clear Defense)
  12. Eight New Points on the Porcupine: More Ukrainian Lessons for Taiwan (War on the Rocks)
  13. Notable for me in the photo above: 1. The 3R41 Volna (NATO Top Dome) fire control radar for the S-300F Fort (NATO SA-N-6a Grumble) air defence system in its usual, standby position, rather than appearing to have been in the process of engaging anything. 2. The Osa-2M (NATO SA-N-4b Gecko) air defence systems, on either side of the hangar, are still in their retracted positions inside their cylindrical enclosures, rather than appearing to have been in the process of engaging anything. This seems to be strongly suggestive of a ship that was caught entirely by surprise. The area of the apparent damage/fire -- just aft of the P-1000 Vulkan (NATO SS-N-12 Sandbox mod 2) antiship missile launchers, and just ahead of the funnels -- makes sense for a missile(s) hit. Given that active radar guided antiship missiles (like Neptun) would ordinarily home on the centroid of the radar return. Notably, there are a pair of AK-630M CIWS in this area, lending more credence to the idea that the air defences of Moskva were completely surprised.
