NATO’s Readiness Action Plan

Measures implemented to bolster the eastern flank of NATO. Hopefully, the political process is also reviewed to improve reaction times.

Renewed focus

Reading the details of the job ads in the above page, crystallises what I hope opswarfare to become, and also the workflow that needs to be worked out, to enable regular articles to be produced.

Just that all those roles are rolled into one person. :)

Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team

Nope, haven't posted in the wrong blog.

This is not your usual Gundam series; really refreshing, with usage of real military tactics and scenarios. Even issues of military command & control, and discipline.

And the Gundams here are not omnipotent; they need to work together with other assets, functioning like just another military platform, and break down sometimes. And instead of flying all over the place, they fight in jungle warfare. Very down-to-earth, literally.  

Really worth a watch. Just finished episode 6...

Recording our thoughts

The latest edition of #CCLKOW struck a chord with me.

Prompted a rare tweet

Re: latest #CCLKOW article, find info overload a problem; tonnes of draft blog posts; maybe better to try writing in a physical notebook [link]

I have so many draft posts in the opswarfare blog; all in various stages. It's not easy to write a proper article with a coherent hypothesis, or a full analysis of an interesting development that I come across. And definitely not in one sitting.

With the busy lives we lead, with multiple interests, it is tough, but as with all projects, it requires determination and planning. Hope to write more regularly.

NBC system for ships

Cool photos spotted on Facebook.

SNMG1 unit HNLMS Tromp testing the pre-wetting system. This system protect the ship against Nuclear, Chemical and Biological adverse environment. [source:]

Haven't seen such a NBC system before. Did a quick search; seems it's a water sprinkler system to be activated in the event of a imminent NBC attack.
