Following President Donald Trump's stalemate talks with Kim Jong-Un, it appears North Korea may be preparing to launch a missile or rocket some time soon.
Earlier this week North Korea sparked outrage after satellite images revealed the nation was 'rapidly rebuilding' its Sohae Launch Facility, a long-range missile launch site.
New images reveal activity may have also resumed at a second site near Pyongyang, known as Sanumdong, where intercontinental ballistic missiles and satellite-launching rockets are assembled.
The shocking photos, captured by DigitalGlobe on February 22, show cars and trucks parked near the facility, rail cars ready to go, and two erected cranes.

Back when everyone swore Trump was going to war with them, I had the strike order all laid out. It wasn't complex and everyone got to play. Everything was covered from the DMZ artillery, your in-mountain air bases, and every target all the way to the Russian border. Because keep in mind the spoils of war NK has to offer are the rare earth minerals and their shipping ports.

@Red Auroras

I figure this thread is a good place to post anything of interest aircraft. There are only a few on here who have more than a passing interest.

The Navy's Last Active Duty P-3C Orion Squadron Is On Its Final Deployment
Nearly six decades after the first Orions entered service, the Navy is getting close to retiring the P-3C from active duty for good.
By Joseph TrevithickApril 19, 2019

The last of the U.S. Navy’s active duty P-3C Orion patrol planes are on their final overseas deployments, split between bases in Bahrain and Japan. The six-month rotations in the Middle East and Pacific regions come as the service prepares to retire all of its Orions in active duty units and replace them completely with the new P-8A Poseidon.
The Whidbey News-Times was the first to report that P-3Cs from Patrol Squadron Four Zero (VP-40), the “Fighting Marlins,” left their main base at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island in Washington state at the end of March 2019 for their sundown deployments to Sheik Isa Air Base in Bahrain and Kadena Air Base in Japan. These Orions replaced their counterparts from Patrol Squadron Four Six (VP-46), the “Grey Knights,” at those locations. VP-46’s planes returned to Whidbey Island earlier in April 2019.

VP-46 had also deployed P-3Cs to Europe, but VP-40 did not send any of its aircraft to that region, according to reports. VP-46 is now set to enter a six-month transition period to switch over to the new P-8A. VP-40 will do the same after it returns to Whidbey Island.

They also have a continent buster with a 100 kilo ton warhead that swims up to the country they want to nuke cause its like a submarine drone and then they blow it up.  They call it a continent buster because it is a 100 kilotons and Hiroshima was little boy (15 kt) and the fatman yielded about 21 kilotons.

Russia will only attack in defense.
Putin has shown a lot of restraint despite constant provocation.

NATO has encircled Russia with over 400 missile sites.
The CIA (No doubt with help from MI6, Mossad etc.) has spent millions in countries surrounding Russia, like the Ukraine, supporting anti-Russia political groups.

Most Russians love & support Putin (except the extremists off course) because he puts Russian interests first.
A recent documentary revealed something that says a lot about the man. Even his detractors admit that Putin cannot be bought. He's not a sneaky bastard. Piss him off & he'll come at you head on. Personally I have a lot of respect for the man.

The Elite/DS/Neocons have fomented the 'Russia is our enemy' bullshit because it suits their agenda.
Russians are not our enemy. They're mostly good Christian white folk.

POTUS sees through the propaganda & is why he's publicly shown & voiced his respect for Putin (Considering the years of anti-Russian propaganda, I thought that that was a bold move) Whenever they meet, pics & videos show that Putin likes Trump.
That's a good thing. History has shown that it's a very bad idea to poke the Bear.

Considering that Putin is not part of the OWG agenda, that in itself certainly makes Russia a worthy ally.

Yeah, this press release has been all over the avgeek boards. The P-3 will be around for years to come in the Reserve squadrons. Between them, the P-8s and the VUP drones in Jax and out in Ventura, ASW marches on.

You have to also consider they both grew up when the MAD doctrine reigned supreme. They both know the consequences of an exchange. Neither side will give up their nukes. Nor does either side want to be the first to cross that line.

I'm wondering about reports that SOSUS can't hear the new Russian boats. Could be intel BS, WTF would tell the truth?

I haven't "heard" a sub in over 20yrs. Look at it like this. Most of the Russian subs from then sounded like a vehicle engine on its last leg. At the same time, we'd chase LA and Ohio class boats and feel lucky if we found one. It's still all about cavitation.

Today, new subs use somewhat the same stealth tech as aircraft. Like I've said before, the US version of the P-8 has ditched the MAD system, while the Indians ordered theirs with it left installed. Smart move for them since many of Russia's older subs have been sold to other countries in that part of the world.

SOSUS has been around forever. Any listening device works best in frosty waters like the Bering straits or the GIUK gap. Not so much in the Med. And like anything else, it needs periodic maintenance. Besides, today it's just a backup to HUMINT. We spent a few days in an extremely cold climate based entirely on a snapshot.
