Here's something from the BBC that you all might find interesting: CLICK
In other news, the topics for July's I&A are shaping up as follows:
-A look at BDA of Libyan SAM sites struck in 2011, with an eye to what this represents as far as current SEAD/DEAD tactics go (seems like this might be relevant in the near future)
-A look at the ROK's ADD complexes
-A follow-on to the I&A special report published over the weekend examining the coverage of Chinese-sourced EW assets located in Syria
Those are all well on their way to being done, and I'm still looking at a few other ideas. One idea is to explain the problems with this article.
I'm also re-working the layout for the imagery template I use in I&A. The big one, like the one I posted here for the captured Syrian Type 120 EW site. I currently have two issues to resolve, and one idea to incorporate. First, I need to shrink the upper border a bit, to give more space to the image. And maybe add a surrounding border as well. Secondly, I need to figure out how to save the finished images properly so that they don't screw up the color. Look at any of the big images in I&A, including the maps. Any time I use red (which is a lot), the red parts look ugly in the saved image. Nice and bright on-screen during creation, not so much after the save. This is an image issue, not an issue converting to PDF, as it does this to the saved image before I do anything else with it. The idea I'll be including at some point is to generate a system of identifiers for each location I show. This can then be cross-referenced with the SAM Site Overview placemarks.
And now I have a nice six-day weekend for the holiday, to spend working on my next IHS Jane's feature and some of July's I&A.
