Quote of the week

The RAF was a comparatively tightly organised, high tech force, by and large with more modern equipment and operational command techniques than the Navy, and more so the Army. One consequence was that they were able to collate and distill information fast for their own purposes.

The upshot was that they had more up to date PR to hand on a regular basis.

UAS Pilots report for training

In a change from previous Air Force Policy that said that pilots should fly unmanned aircraft systems, this first class includes developmental engineers, air battle managers, combat systems officers, a space/missile operator a civil engineer and a contracting officer.

Lt Gen Norman R Seip, Commander 12th Air Force said :
"Next year, the Air Force will procure more unmanned aircraft than manned aircraft........So I think that makes a very pointed statement about our commitment to the future of UAS and what it brings to the fight in meeting the requirements of combatant commanders.”

IMHO the days of the master race are numbered
