Could Lasers Be the Ultimate Missile Defense System?
*Sebastien Roblin* *U.S. Army, Americas* Lasers have virtually inexhaustible “ammunition” and are very cheap per shot compared to a missile or even a cannon shell. *Here's What You Need to Remember:* The Army is not the only service seeking land-based directed energy weapons. The Air Force is reportedly testing three different microwaves defensive weapons which could be used to disrupt or disable drones. After decades of being confined to experimental prototypes and Star Wars movies, laser weapons today are on the verge of entering wide-scale service, whether in the hands of inf...
Don't Mess With Russia's Speedy MiG-31 Interceptor
*Charlie Gao* *MiG-31, Europe* The plane is excellent for patrolling Russia's vast airspace. *Here's What You Need to Know*: The MiG-31 is the standard long range interceptor of the Russian Air Force and expected to serve into the 2030s. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union’ s Air Defense Forces (VPVO) needed a series of heavy interceptors to patrol its massive borders. Most regular “light” fighters like the early MiGs were not up to the task, as they lacked the range and speed to intercept to rapidly climb and intercept supersonic American bombers, who were expected to zoom ove...
How the U.S. Navy Plans to Take On China's Submarines in Future War
*Charlie Gao* *U.S. Navy, Asia* The service has a wide variety of modern weapons to find and destroy enemy submarines. *Here's What You Need to Know*: The U.S. Navy has a plan. With things heating up in the South China Sea (SCS), much attention has been paid to the ships and submarines that could potentially square off against each other in the region. This ignores a key asset of most navies that is already on the “front lines” and shaping military interactions—Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA). Skillful use of these aircraft may determine how an engagement plays out, or it could p...
Could Iran’s Submarines Pull Off a Surprise Attack on the U.S. Navy?
*Sebastien Roblin* *Iranian Navy, Middle East* The Persian Gulf is a perfect hiding place for Iranian submarines. *Here's What You Need to Remember:* Past experience demonstrates that Tehran routinely exaggerates and obfuscates the scale of its defense projects, and the timeline in which they will be completed. Nonetheless, the submarine *Fateh* is tangibly real and looks like it could usefully expand the medium-range capabilities of the Iranian submarine fleet. The Iranian military has long planned for a defensive naval war in the Persian Gulf, in which it would leverage its lar...

The People’s Scientist: Dr. Esther Ngumbi Makes Science Accessible
Jessica Ruf, Diverse - 1 day ago
As a child in rural Kenya, Dr. Esther Ngumbi helped her parents farm each day, watching as their crops sprouted from the soil, hopeful and green. But then, “insects would come and go through our crops, and sometimes what insects hadn’t taken away, drought would,” says Ngumbi, now an assistant professor of entomology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. From a young age, Ngumbi wanted to know what the insects were and how farmers could control them. She wanted a career that could help her community grow plentiful food amid challenging circumstances and a changing climate.

Why South Korea’s F-15 Eagles are Like No Other on Earth
*Sebastien Roblin* *South Korea Air Force, * The Strike Eagle is a fighter-bomber variant of the F-15 Eagle, loaded with extra weapons pylons, fuel tanks and sensors at the cost of modestly decreased thrust-to-weight ratio and maneuverability. *Here's What You Need To Remember: *Seoul is also planning to produce 200 home-designed cruise missile to be mounted on its indigenous KF-X jet fighter, when and if that materializes.

China Stands Ready To Help Pakistan Fight Off India
*Charlie Gao* *JF-17, Asia* The JF-17 fighter is a key example. *Here's What You Need to Know*: The JF-17 is a Chinese design with a Russian engine. The 2019 India-Pakistan border skirmish resulted in major shake-ups within the Indian Air Force (IAF). The most accepted narrative, that of a loss of an IAF MiG-21 Bison to no losses of the Pakistan Air Force bodes poorly for the IAF. But interestingly, according to a July interview, the skirmish marked one of the first “hot” use of Pakistan’s new Chinese JF-17 “Thunder” fighters.

How Many Deadly Fifth-Generation Su-57 Fighters Will Russia Build?
