    Thanks for that self intro...and for your service to your country.

    Sounds like you have had some very interesting and varied Surface Warfare experience.

    Hello everyone,

    I've been a registered member(and Lurker) here forever and a day but with the situation in the SCS my interest has peaked!

    I'm an USAF Veteran, was an avid wargamer, and enjoy World War 2 Pacific history. I always learn so much here

    Maybe. it's a bit too late. :D

    Hello Guys,
    I am Chinese Indonesian (Born and Growth in Jakarta City)
    My Father is from Guangzhou, China and Until age 40s still hold PRC Citizenship.
    and My mother is from Kaoshiung, Taiwan.

    But, I cannot speak Chinese Language, and just can speak Indonesian.
    Because My Father (Cantonese Dialect) and my mother (Hokkien Dialect) have different languange, and use Indonesian Language to communicate in home.

    I am Majoring in International Relations studies, especially in Political-Economic-Social and Cultural Issue in East Asia, and South East Asia Countries.

    And I am really Interesting in Chinese Military Development and Updates. :)

    Welcome Gentlemen, to the Sino Defense Forum, I finally have a day off so cruising the forum a bit, looking forward to hearing from each of you, and these are indeed very interesting days. kf6bka would be interested in your USAF service, my Dad was an IP in the C-130, so I am a standard issue -1 USAF BRAT, first generation BRAT, also a gen aviation Sport Pilot, flying a 1946 Ercoupe, and yes it is 10 years older than I am.

    Lurking here since 2011 before signing up for membership a year ago. Am 31 years old geologist from Norway. Done mandatory army service 10 years ago.

    Been interested in science and especially astro related sciences since i was a kid. As a science geek its hard to not be amazed by millitary technology. After all many scientific breakthroughs are made through the millitary lense. Also been interested in geography and sadly also politics( i blame it on my news hungry dad). Until a few years ago i barely knew about geostrategy. After some "research" i sensed a profound underlying mechanism behind geopolitics and was simply shocked by how little i knew about the stories behind the stories. In many ways the major conflict related news stories became more of a interpretation than real facts.

    Chinese millitary advancement is so exciting to witness these days that i check for updates here on daily basis. From an asian point of view it is a massive change from the situation just 20 year a ago. In the long term perspective i think its healthy too.

    Especially curious about chinese space tech, aircraft carriers, SSBN, stealth fighters and of course geostrategy :)

    Hello guys.


    I’m 44 years old from Portugal

    Always been interested in Geopolitics /Geostrategy and military technology and its history (specially WW 2)

    For the last 15 years I’ve being compiling a huge pics database, related to world navies so feel free to ask any info/images, ill be glad to share.

    I served in Portuguese Army Commandos special forces back in 1992.

    I’m an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and currently I own a small company specialized in aircraft liveries and decals.


    On a personal note most of my free time is spent with my dogs (I’m a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever breeder) the main reason why I never have time to post.
