Manage episode 359032847 series 3336185
Pretty cool episode. We start off discussing the latest US security assistance package to Ukraine.
Then, we cover two main themes- the Arctic region and then the Pacific. For the Arctic region- we have two stories involving military collaboration. One between the US and Canada and their ski-equipped C 130 landing on ice and the second story involving a combined airborne operation (parachute jump) by the UK Royal Marines & Dutch forces. Also, somewhere in there, is an article that discusses planning for a NATO Northern Flank air collaboration between Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden.
For the Pacific, we have two stories from Australia (Boxer & Taipan), one from North Korea (Underwater Drone), and one that illustrates some USMC unfunded priority concerns- particularly for the San Antonio Class amphibious ship.
Finally- we close out with a nice anti-tank missile story from Egypt.
