Here’s a little roundup of other goings on in the defense world that we didn’t write about this week:
Some cool gadgetry was hawked down in Rio at LAAD11, Latin America’s biggest arms show. Steve Trimble at The DEW Line’s got some great info on everything from France’s design for a new stealthy bomber to Brazil’s very own hypersonic vehicle.
NATO is apparently running low on ammo for he Libyan ops, what!? In some ways, this whole thing is a bit of a PR fail for the alliance.
Oh, and the ever-problem plagued ship, USS San Antonio (LPD-17) has a whole new set of challenges related to really lousy maintenance record keeping, according to Defense News’ naval reporter Chris Cavas. Hey, at least these issues are not “material” ones as Cavas report says.
