    A 'bomb truck' or for that matter any truck including those with 18 wheels doesn't need to be fancy or goes through any serious design modifications. The only thing needing upgrading is engines and perhaps avionics but the basic design should last forever.

    The semi trucks we see today has designs that dates back 70 years and for the most part remained largely unchanged ... not too different with missile carriers like the BUFF or the Bears.

    European/Asian trucks are primarily 'cab over engine' types but that design is very old as well. They have the flat face look to it.

    Of course there certain people who wants to make it look fancy but it's really unnecesary

    Russia calls snap military drills, raising concern in Poland

    Associated Press

    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced snap military drills on land and in the Black and Caspian Sea, the defense ministry said on Thursday.

    The drills began at 7:00 a.m. (0400 GMT) Moscow time in Russia's southern, western and central military districts where troops have been put on combat alert, the ministry said in a statement. Russian television led its news bulletins with images of heavy weaponry and tanks on the move and troops in full combat gear running to grab their weapons from the ammunition storage.

    Neighboring Poland reacted by calling an instant briefing of the commands of operational forces and of military intelligence.

    The drills which will last until the end of the month will involve a variety of troops, from paratroopers to the Northern Fleet.

    The drills come a week after Russia for the first time since it began its operation in Syria used an air base in Iran, and after President Putin lashed out at Ukraine for allegedly sending its military intelligence office to carry out acts of sabotage in Russia-annexed Crimea.

    In Poland, which has been wary of Moscow's actions, the defense ministry said Minister Antoni Macierewicz ordered a briefing of the heads of the armed forces' Operational Command, Military Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence. The timing of the briefing was not revealed.

    The Operational Command is in charge of the air defense and of reacting to crisis situations.

    The ministry also said Poland's military envoy in Moscow has been "invited" to Russia's defense ministry.

    Krzysztof Szczerski, an aide to Poland's President Andrzej Duda, said that the military relations between Russia and East European countries are a "game of emotions" that should not be given in to.

    He said Poland would monitor the situation.

    That is a very real threat to the USA aircraft carrier fleet. This missile and the stealthy Kilo class submarine hamper or destroy a majority of the carrier fleet and leave the United States without the ability to project power and most importantly control the shipping lanes in the event of war.

    Very disturbing
