I know nobody likes these updates but its the only way I have to "speak" to you guys. To help me improve as an author, could you guys tell me what you thought about the Canada and the F-35 article? Was it too long? I do quite a bit of research in preparation for an article but sometimes it can be a bit much. Viewer feedback is really the only way I can tell if people read these (or the 3 options at the bottom: excellent, cool, or needs work), Thanks.

Upcoming articles: The State of the NATO Alliance, The Importance of C4ISR, What Would an American Strike on Iran Accomplish?, America's Next Generation Bomber Part II, The importance of Aggressor Squadrons, The Future of the USAF, Something related to attack helicopters (?)

If you guys have any article suggestions feel free to ask. :)

Iran's "stealth fighter" is a piece of junk (just a mock-up). More Info:


  1. I think the F-35 articles could have been cut in half so there would be 6 parts which you could release over a week or two. I usually check this blog right before work or right before sleep so I prefer a slightly more digestible size.
    Thanks for your analysis, I learn so much from here!

    1. Okay, I'll try and make them more digestible in the future. I tried to make the F-35 article more like a professional Congressional report but in hindsight that wasn't a good idea as those can be pretty dull. Thanks! I'm happy to know some people read em. It makes all the work worth it.

  2. I think you are doing well, you are explaining everything well. More photo's would be great. Keep up the good work. ;)
