PAC is actually a corporation set up by the Pakistani Airforce.
'On its own',... I meant an actual airforce that set up its own corp. and then actively went out to produce a fighter jet of its own in collaboration with China of course.
No other country's airforce, correct me if wrong went on to establish a company that went on to produce an aircraft.

PRODUCTION OF MULTI-ROLE LIGHT UTILITY AIRCRAFT: NAF SIGNS MOU WITH COMP AIR AVIATION
The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Comp Air Aviation of USA to seal the partnership on production of multi-role light utility aircrafts. The Comp Air Aviation is an aircraft manufacturer company based in Florida, USA...

The interesting thing about this is if it is successful, Nigerian Air Force would be only the second airwing in the world to have privately built an aircraft on its own. The other is Pakistan.

Let's not be disingenuous here.

The Mi 35 is an attack helicopter quite alright but it is not the most specialised AH compared to others. It is different that while it is an attack helicopter, it can also perform additional duties of troop transport in tandem with attack abilities.
If for purely attack reasons, the specs on Rooivalk might just edge out Mi 35. For others, the absence of additional capabilities for Rooivalk outside of attack may mean its not the best. Either way, both are able to do one thing well.

They can rip to shreds enemy troops when they are called in.

Weekly M.E round-up!

Iraqi columns getting wrecked in Mosul by VBIEDS - it seems the Iraqi's have never heard of the First Chechen war (or the battle for Grozny). Either way, very difficult threat to counter.

The terrorists can keep on trying but the Iraqi army has just pushed through to the Tigris river. Funny the cannon fodders used in suicide attacks do not think of the fear of their own leaders who push them, but then try to scamper away when it's their turn to die.

The country's just like one big crime city with thugs, militants, rogues and so as Governors, etc. The security services on the other hand are petty, recording and releasing conversation.

It's plain sad this are the things we contend with, when the country needs braniacs to solve problems.

Funny is that Nigerians know little of the scale of surveillance possibility held by the government. You can read all about it if you know where to look.

We need laws to protect the privacy of people, especially those working in surveillance who without guidelines can use this to even keep tabs on associates, exes, etc who are outside any investigation.
Politics / Re: Sheriff: I Was Wrongly Accused Of Sponsoring Boko Haram.. by BlackBaron: 10:15am On Dec 30, 2016
Mr Sheriff in a bid to get re elected, cuddled up to the group then due to their populist acceptance amongst borno people. He famously promised them sharia in return for votes.
Subsequently, the terrorist group got out of control as they felt despite all, they wanted a parallel existence to the constitution.

Though easier said than done. It's necessary for our government to have had checks at very local levels to prevent ideologies, especially external types with parallel mindsets to the country's government.
Hez might seem less harmful than shitty state but they remain a threat and when become very entrenched, they suddenly become as powerful as a state in their own way. In Lebanon, Hez and their national army are in some sort of stand offish scenario. The Americans trying to prevent the the further weakening of the state's, try to supply their army with sizeable arms to prevent being usurped by Hez which also gets continued supplies from Iran.

Turkey has for decades tinkered on with secularism and conservative islam. The latter means there exists a section of the population who are largely want to over compensate about their religion and hence liable to attacks such as today.
Erdogan largely rolled back more of the comparatively relaxed constitution which also re-strengthened hardliners and conservatives.

Its no surprise that the environment is favourable to issues like this. Even it is of no surprise anymore that some of the biggest raw materials for shitty state's explosives, ieds and so were largely trucked in from Turkey.
It was one of the reason a section of his army attempted to depose him but failed and instead faced a large cull of ranks to be left with more Erdogan/conservative supporters.

Russia's support and crushing of Aleppo had not gone down well with Turkey and a large proportion of their population who give tacit support to rebels against Assad. The response was the assassination of the Russian Ambassador by a state employee.

The Government is erring by not obeying several court orders to set him free.
At the same time, I don't really know about this guy as a revolutionary whatever. Passionate he may be but he's also spoken more than he could do or claim to be. From his claims of having airforces ready to countries on his side.

I'll wager he's probably one of those who didn't anticipate how he'd become widely accepted. The Government on the other hand is making him widely recognised and popular with the treatment he receives.

the Syrian army is over stretched, and above all Palmyra is more or less not an important town apart from the T4 tiyas air base near it
Very wrong about Palmyra. Very important to Syria for propaganda and also is the route to the besieged Deir.
Assad used the capture to pry up his government as the legitimate 'protector' of Syrian land, people, artifacts and implied the only force capable of clearing Syria of the filth of shitty state.

Word is the FSA has agreed to leave the city in the famous "green busses"... Same way many other pockets have been shut down.
Palmyra is a meme city, the real center of gravity in the area is T2 airbase, just west of it.... Biggest arms stockpile in the country, and it's locked down tiiight
Now the interesting part comes... With Aleppo out the way the FSA will have 25 000 men (including Hawks/Tiger brigade)... Where they go will tell us everything we need to know
I doubt the Syrian troops would allow them leave. Besides, since they got them trapped in a very tight corner, it'll be interesting to see what options they got. I think shitty state apart from trying to capture ammo, also went for the oilfields. The noose tightening around them means they are trying to make as much room as possible for themselves in Syria.

OFF-TOPIC
4000 Jihadists attacked a position held by under 1000 Syrian army soldiers. i read the Tiger unit is currently assessing the situation.
Doubt up to 4000.
From equipment captured, it showed very little defence of the city. Seems like the main bulk of the army got deployed elsewhere and left less experienced (paramilitary) numbers in Palmyra. Besides, small numbers of Tiger Forces were also in Palmyra when terrorists attacked. In another way, it also shows the poor quality of troops in many Arab units, once an enemy attacks, they peel away only for another counter attack to recapture previously captured areas by others which costs more lives.

Most likely after Aleppo, Desert hawks, Tiger forces and the mix of the proscribed terror groups fighting for Assad would have to be redeployed there.

Alleppo has been fully liberated!

Small enclave still left.
Unfortunately, Palmyra got captured by shitty state, there'll have to be coordinated pushes on Mosul, raqqa, Palmyra (relieve Deir er Zor) in order to put the terrorists on the defensive instead of an ability to mount offensives at different points.

Good luck to everyone involved in it, unfortunately the mass hysteria surrounding this might be the cause of the eventual collapse if it truly hasn't.

Jonathan was rightly shown out of the door.
As for Buhari, he sooner than later showed that after all his noise and promises, he had no answers to the problem on ground. Took as many months to elect a cabinet only to see same old faces almost bare of technocrats.
As for trying to combat corruption and insecurity, his scores are as much as 5 and a 4 respectively. Economy at the moment is a paltry 1. Boasts of technical defeats and untenable press releases about foreign nomadic marauders only shows the level of falsehood and lies by this government.

Inconsistent policies led to the painful dips in recession. The exchange rate was easily the worst with people exploiting the ridiculous loophole to get richer meaning the poorer had to bear the brunt of costly produce because retailers were paying more for foreign exchange.
It's not enough to suddenly lock off the country without providing the right infrastructures for local industries to take off, how much more limiting their access to produce by killing the exchange.

Just like I could see the disaster of the last government less than 2 years in, we are now enamoured with the prospects of the consecutive worst governments running back to back.

This is quite unfortunate. This is more to do with ill thought policies that gave undue disadvantage to CDMA operators by way of high priced licenses or non committal to assist the companies in laying down the right infrastructure.

After collection of their money, it then got passed on to the citizens right to pay them off?

Being a soldier is a profession. It entails you fighting to protect the integrity and citizens of your country. If it involves killing evil people, then so be it.

It's when you manipulate the power you have to oppress and kill unjustly, POW, civilians, then you'll likely face the consequences.
