    Admiral Essen didn't return home after exercises in the Med but didn't stay around near Syria either. Turns out she visited Greece. http://tass.com/defense/1022262 IDF delegation heads to Russia.

    Some of you might remember this from Overlord.

    Episode 11 was quite particularly savage. With every succeeding episode, the humor and the facial expressions gets more and more brutal. Only one episode left, this series needs more.

    Going to add that the French are calling out the Russians for fake news about the FREMM frigate firing missiles around the time the IL-20 went missing. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-france/russian-fake-news-machine-going-mad-says-french-envoy-to-u-s-idUSKCN1LY2C4 On other news, Chinese sent a spy ship to the Vostok 2018 exercises, despite having a 3200 person contingent there. https://news.usni.org/2018/09/17/china-sent-uninvited-spy-ship-russian-vostok-2018-exercise-alongside-troops-tanks World's largest amphibian.

    Interesting read. Anyway on other news. Russia detects missile launches from French frigate off the coast of Syria. https://www.rt.com/news/438676-french-frigate-mediterranean-missiles/ Russian IL-20 went down off Syrian coast during Israeli missile barrage. http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/23655/russian-il-20-surveillance-plane-went-down-off-syrian-coast-during-israeli-missile-barrage From warship to yacht.

    But can you hold the liquor this time? Another article about the USN looking for a large surface combatant. https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2018/09/17/the-us-navy-is-going-to-need-a-bigger-boat-and-its-getting-ready-to-buy-one/ Article about the 5th Type 071 LPD recently admitted into Chinese Navy service. Looks like a possible strike coming... ...and there it goes.

    New exercise is underway. Deal for four frigates, two built in Yantar Shipyards, and two built in India. 3rd trial for China's second aircraft carrier to come soon. http://eng.chinamil.com.cn/view/2018-09/17/content_9284161.htm Added: Japan conducts submarine exercise in the South China Seas for the first time. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/09/17/national/politics-diplomacy/first-japanese-submarine-conducts-drills-disputed-south-china-sea/#.W59z_mgzbrc Said Japanese submarine docked in Vietnam for the first time. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20180917_14/ Russia conducting their own hunt for Red October at the Sea of Okhotsk, as part of Vostok 2018.

  12. Azur Lane anime announced

    The Gacha Hero Collection genre of mobile game is in full swing. The genre is now trying to niche itself with more anthromorphism. If ship waifus are not your thing, there are food waifus. Meet recently introduced mobile game Food Fantasy. Artwork and the CG used on Azur Lane looks very good, and I cannot help notice similarities with this game I started, Honkai Impact 3rd. It could be because both are Chinese mobile games, and the two companies can be sharing creative talent among each other. There is some similarity in the character art style, and the UI design language of the apps. Underneath all, both are very different games, with AL being a 2D chibi side scroller, while HI3 is full 3D with environment and character models, with full action. Azur Lane Honkai Impact 3rd.

    After the large Russian Navy exercise off Syria, some ships have returned to their bases then but a good number of ships are still patrolling the area. Guess what, those are the ships that have Kalibr missiles, and are waiting to support Assad for his final push against the last remaining rebel strongholds. Great Cold War shot. The Russian ship is a Sverdlov class cruiser, one of whom is in WoWs as the Mikhail Kutuzov.

    I love epic music, apocalyptic, end of the world, god type. Hail the Queen! OST - "Befall" with lyrics. Context of the song.
