    KC-46: Too Crucial To Fail
    "There is no other option at this point," explains Todd Harrison, the director of the Aerospace Security Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). "The Air Force needs new tankers, and Boeing is the only one making them."

    @Viktor Jav
    There are two major issues with this article.
    1. National Interest. It’s basically a news republishing clearing house that has a bad habit of recycling old stories from years ago like breaking headlines. As such you have to be careful with them.
    2. Scout Warrior. The Scout page is back to Sports. Chris Osborn moved over to Warrior Maven. About a year or so ago. NI doesn’t mention that which may mean this is an old piece. When I went to WM I couldn’t find it. He had a recent article from 2 days ago so he hasn’t stopped writing and this article is supposedly 7 days old however a google search pings this back as April 2016.
    The article does mention two of the previous try’s at a new .50BMG the XM312 and XM806. Both had significantly slower rates of fire. I would even say that the XM806 was more or less XM312 repackaged minus the sighting system.
    There was a third as well the M85 which was a disappointment to say the least.
    Now what happened with this story? They just updated the M2 a little bit. Changed some materials a tweak here and there then added a new Trijicon optical sighting system.

    I've heard of it before, but only now found (it's dated 19 August 2019 but a month doesn't mean much in that type of stuff)

    Couple stories of interest.
    Raytheon is floating the Peregrine medium range Air to air missile.
    http://www.airforcemag.com/Features.../Raytheon-Unveils-New-Air-to-Air-Missile.aspx
    6 feet long 150 lbs. AMRAAM is 12 feet long and 335 lbs. even Aim 9 is about 10 feet long and 188 pounds. So it’s smaller and longer range than Sidewinder?

    Boeing SAAB T7A Red Hawk
    Named in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen

    Interesting video a US Army AH64E packing an Israeli made SPIKE NLOS.

    No word on adoption but clearly some interest.
    Speaking of foreign equipment in Army hands Ft. Benning has been hosting the Patria NEMO 120mm mortar system in a AMV.
