    Helicopters are not known for being the most useful bombing platforms, but some of Russia’s combat helicopters, namely the Mi-24 Hind series, are still capable of hauling these weapons. Russia and the Assad regime are putting this capability to use in Syria, as you can see in the videos below, with horrific results. (Be warned that what you’re about to see is the bombing of an actual city caught on video, one that may have resulted in casualties.) There are real doubts as to what targets Russia is actually striking in Syria. Not just when it comes to what parties...
  • Exclusive: In Paris attack, nurse discovers the man he tried to save was bomber

    In the chaos of the explosion at the Comptoir Voltaire cafe, one of several targets hit in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks, nurse David instinctively sought to help the wounded. Among them was a man lying amid overturned chairs and tables. David, who asked to be called just by his first name, lay him down. The man did not look to have massive injuries, but appeared unconscious, so David began CPR, the cardiopulmonary resuscitation he'd been trained for. When he tore open the man's t-shirt, David quickly realized that what he initially thought was a gas explosion at the cafe...

    WASHINGTON The Air Force said Tuesday it chose Northrop Grumman Corp., maker of the B-2 stealth bomber, to build its next-generation bomber, a highly classified, $80 billion project designed to replace the aging bomber fleet with an information-age aircraft that eventually may be capable of flying without a pilot aboard. The loser of the high-stakes bidding contest was a team formed by Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp.

    Last month the Air Force announced it had received the final competing design submissions from Northrup Grumman and Boeing/Lockheed Martin for the Long Range Strike-Bomber (LRS-B), also known as the B-3. The Air Force will be reviewing the two submissions and in a few months will announce who has won the contract for its first new bomber in 25 years. At the low end, the contract will be worth some $55 billion. But factoring in development costs and the cost-growth patterns of the last 20 years for these types of projects, the value of the contract easily ends up exceeding...

    The world's last flying Avro Vulcan is preparing for its final ever flights after the decision was made to permanently ground the Cold War veteran jet. The four-engined bomber, which saw action in the Falklands, is undertaking two final missions on October 10 and 11, flying long loops of the country from north to south. Chief pilot Martin Withers, who broke the record for the world's longest bombing mission in April 1982, is currently preparing a route for the final flights, which are being designed so as many people as possible will be able to see the jet.

    A former commander of the USAFs bomber force says 80 to 100 new Long-Range Strike Bombers are not enough to meet American national security objectives, and the service should consider buying more to rejuvenate its withering combat fleet of Boeing B-1s and B-52s. In his testimony to Congress 9 September, Lt Gen Robert Elder, who directed the 8th Air Force before his retirement, said the production target released by the air force is too few, even though the new aircraft will be more capable. Our capabilities are withering and we have less than 100 combat-ready bombers with an average age...

Russia's Interfax news agency reported the plan, quoting an unnamed ministry source, though it has not been officially confirmed. Other Russian media also reported it.

    Today just three countries operate long-range heavy bombers. Russia has 170 or so Bears, Backfires and Blackjacks. America fields 160 swing-wing B-1s, radar-evading B-2s and stalwart B-52s. China’s bomber force is smaller with around 130 H-6s. And most of the H-6s, copies of Russia’s Cold War Tu-16, lack the long range and heavy payload that many of the Russian and American bombers boast. But that’s changing. After years of work, the Chinese air force has reportedly outfitted two regiments—together possessing around 36 bombers — with a new, much more capable “K” version of the H-6. The H-6K is Beijing’s B-52 — a far-flying, fuel-efficient...

It was the fifth accident involving a Russian military aircraft in the past month, but the first with fatalities. The Su-24 bomber crashed while taking off from an airfield in the Khabarovsk region in Russia's Far East at 9:35 p.m. local time, the ministry said in a statement. Shortly after leaving the runway, the plane banked sharply to the left and struck the ground, the ministry said.

Now, after years of requirements changes, it appears that a blended wing, subsonic design, much like the one pictured above, will be the new jet's overall configuration.

The Boston Regional Intelligence Center and the Commonwealth Fusion Center in Maynard, which is supposed to serve as clearinghouses for information about potential threats, was unaware that the FBI interviewed Tsarnaev as part of a three-month investigation after Russian agents alerted US officials to his increasing radicalization, officials said. We were not privy to the tip,

    Regular viewers of Fox News are used to seeing popular host Megyn Kelly on their televisions every afternoon, but on Thursday morning Kelly made a special appearance during the morning to break some surprising information: according to her sources, the FBI was shocked to see a magistrate waltz into the hospital room of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and read him his Miranda rights. So why were they shocked? According to Kelly, the FBI was under the understanding that they would get much more time with Tsarnaev under the public safety exemption before he was read his rights. Adding to the shock: the...

    Thanks to the "Public Safety Exception" to Miranda (which was created in 1980), the government is not forced to choose between treating a suspect as an enemy combatant or immediately allowing said suspect to hide behind an attorney and the right to remain silent. In extraordinary circumstances, when a suspect is believed to be part of a broader conspiracy that might result in the loss of innocent life, authorities have 48 hours to question the suspect before mirandizing him. Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the man suspected of being a co-conspirator in the Boston Marathon bombings, was mirandized after only 16 hours of...

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev admitted to authorities Sunday that he and his brother were behind the Marathon bombings, according to a senior law enforcement official. Tsarnaev made his admissions to FBI agents who interviewed him at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he is being treated for multiple gunshot wounds. He had not yet been given a Miranda warning. Tsarnaevs attorneys are certain to challenge the legal admissibility of those admissions, and other information he gave them, such as claiming that he and his brothers acted alone, and that his brother was radicalized in an extreme form of Islam in part because...

    Federal authorities unsealed a 10-page criminal complaint against Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev today, outlining the events leading up to the twin explosions in minute-by-minute detail. The author, Special Agent Daniel R. Genck of the FBI's Boston Field Office, pieced together the events from the footage of several different security cameras that captured Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the minutes before the bombing. Tamerlan was killed in a firefight with police early Friday morning. The complaint, for example, suggests that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may have activated the first bomb via cell phone: snip

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) A mosque where the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects sometimes attended services says one of them had outbursts during two sermons that encouraged Muslims to celebrate American institutions such as the Fourth of July and figures like Martin Luther King Jr. The Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center says in a statement released Monday that Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) argued with a preacher during a service at its Cambridge mosque in November about U.S. holidays.

    I'm not sure whether to believe it and neither, apparently, is Pete Williams. Watch the clip below. The carjacking victim seems to have told two different stories, first that he "escaped" from the Tsarnaevs and second that they let him go because he wasn't an American. The "escape" story smells like B.S. cooked up in the first flush of the victim's brush with death, but it's just as implausible that they let the guy go. They'd already bombed a marathon and murdered a cop in cold blood. They had no problem with killing, whether remotely or face to face, and...

    Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have murdered his 'only American friend' in an unsolved triple killing two years ago, it emerged today. Brendan Mess had his 'throat slit' alongside two other men in a Massachusetts apartment in 2011 in what police described as a 'very graphic crime scene'. Former associates of the Chechan immigrant didn't initially suspect him of carrying out the gruesome attack, but thought it was strange he didn't attend his friend's funeral. Now one man who knew Tamerlan through the gym where they trained said some of their social circle 'without even speaking about it beforehand...
