The Finns bought up all the MLRS systems the Danes and the Dutch were disposing of, and a few more from the Americans.
Is it so difficult to understand? I don't find it so.
Some governments I like. Some governments I dislike. I vote for governments I like. I applaud them when they win. I tolerate the governments I dislike. Surely that is the basis of a popularly elected government?
The larger cousins of the Company Swarm.
What formation is 174 UCAV/Fighters? A Squadron? Wing? Group? Division? Force?

If the Armour and Engineer heavy equipment is dispersed and co-located with their training areas then there is little need for support...
NLAW / MBT LAW is manufactured in Britain by Thales UK.
It was taken into service in 2009. It is a wooden round with a 20 year shelf life. The first rounds manufactured would be 12 years old now. They are ripe for divestment in any event.
And now would be a good time to refresh the...
