    The U.S. Navy will commission its newest Virginia-class attack submarine North Dakota (SSN 784) during a ceremony Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014, at Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut, according to a Navy press release. North Dakota is the second ship named in honor of the state of North Dakota, and the 11th Virginia-class submarine. The first USS North Dakota (BB 29), was a Delaware-class battleship commissioned into the U.S. Navy in 1910, displacing 24,320 tons with a main armament of 10 12-inch guns. She was decommissioned in 1923. The North Dakota will be able to attack targets…

    AN/TPS-75(click to view full) The US Air Force’s AN/TPS-75 radar has been in service since 1968. Threats have evolved, and they want to replace it as their main long-range, ground-based radar for detecting, identifying and tracking aircraft and missiles, then reporting them through the Ground Theater Air Control System. The US Marines are considering a similar move, to replace their own AN/TPS-59s. Hence the USA’s Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR, pron. “Three Dealer”). 3DELRR is intended to provide up to 35 radars for long-range surveillance,…

  • Poland Poised for Realistic but Low Profile Posture?

    Olivier Travers
    24 Oct 2014 | 9:19 am
    Poland has adopted [Defence24] a new national security strategy, which explicitly recognizes “a risk of local and regional conflicts in direct vicinity of Poland.” The Economist profiles Ewa Kopacz, Poland’s prime minister since last month, as a pragmatic leader likely to play it safe rather than use a confrontational tone in her dealings with Russia. Reuters has shown pictures of charred tanks in Eastern Ukraine which several analysts thought had to be Russian. Slovakia will purchase 2 C-27J transport aircraft, reports the Slovak Spectator.

  • If Necessary, Alone: The Shield of Poland

    Joe Katzman
    23 Oct 2014 | 11:38 am
    In the wake of events in Georgia and Crimea, Poland has emerged as NATO’s key eastern bastion. The Tarcza Polski (Shield of Poland) aims to give it an advanced air defense system to match. Poland’s military rise has been slow, but steady. Smart economic policies have created growth, and a willingness to finance national defense is slowly improving their equipment. Combat deployments abroad to Iraq and Afghanistan have both sharpened training, and highlighted areas that still need fixing. Missile proliferation in the Middle East, American fecklessness, and a rearming Russia have…
  • Buy from the Pros: Poland Adds More German Tanks

    Joe Katzman
    23 Oct 2014 | 10:56 am
    Polish Leopard 2A4(click to view full) Germany is almost done selling off one of the world’s most impressive tank fleets, earning itself a solid market around the world in the process, and choking sales of competitive designs. In November 2013, Poland announced that it would buy a 2nd batch of Leopard 2 tanks from Germany, along with assorted other equipment. As usual, the package price was incredibly cheap: just EUR 180 million for 119 more tanks, plus range training fittings, machine guns, radios; and assorted armored tractors, cars, and trucks. Poland’s next question is what to…
  • AGM-158 JASSM: Lockheed’s Family of Stealthy Cruise Missiles

    JASSM-ER from B-1B(click to view full) The 2,000 pound AGM-158 JASSM (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile) is intended to be a stealthy, inexpensive GPS/IIR (Global Positioning system/ Imaging InfraRed) guided cruise missile. It’s designed to attack well-defended targets without putting its carrier aircraft in the crosshairs of new long-range surface to air missile systems. JASSM has experienced a rocky development history, due to long-standing reliability issues. In 2005 it was threatened with cancellation following a series of poor test results.
