  5. Adversarial Studies Seminar: How the War in Ukraine is Evolving Monday, 05 September 2022 15:00 - 16:00 (BST) We are delighted to be joined again by Michael Kofman, Director of Russia Studies at the Center for Naval Analysis, for a discussion on how the war in Ukraine is evolving. This event will examine how the Russian army has adjusted since its initial faltering invasion, the Ukrainian response, and the probable course of events in the coming months. The seminar will be chaired by Dr Sidharth Kaushal, Research Fellow, Sea Power, RUSI Military Sciences. How to Attend This event is open to all. To take part, you must pre-register no later than 4 September 2022 using the ‘Register Now’ button above. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
  6. Its an excellent overview of what likely happened to Moskva. I do question one conclusion, the assertion that a Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 provided targeting for the Neptun battery. I think it is probably just as likely (or even more likely) that an American Global Hawk UAV performed that role. (Although admittedly I haven't looked to confirm if the Global Hawk that was patrolling in the area was actually in position at the time.) My reasoning is as follows: (1) I am doubtful that the UA would send the TB2 into the air defence envelope of the Moskva, not just because of the risk to the UAV but it would also alert the ship. (2) The UA hasn't offered any imagery of the attack on Moskva taken by a TB2. I would think they would want to exploit the propaganda value of such imagery, as they did with Snake Island. Especially since Russia (predictably) denied that the ship was lost to an attack.

  10. 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. 😁

  13. 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.
