And frankly the only people who will risk strike are those who have the capability that you mentioned.

News from Sweden as they christen their last 'stealth' corvette. Fine looking ships.
 
==================================================
 
HMS Karlstad Christened Today. Five Visby-Class Corvettes Strengthen Swedish Navy
 
(Source: Kockums AB; issued Aug. 24, 2006)
 
 

With HMS Karlstad, christened yesterday, the Swedish Navy now has five Visby-class stealth corvettes, two of which are shown here during high-speed maneuvers. (Kockums AB photo)
HMS Karlstad, the fifth and final vessel of the Visby series, was christened today, Thursday August 24th 2006, by Director General Marie Hafstrm, Swedish Armed Forces.  
 
The impressive ceremony was held at Kockums in Karlskrona, Sweden, in the presence of guest of honour Birgitta Samuelsson, Chairwoman of Karlstad Local Council. She presented the commander of the new vessel, Commander Carl David Philipsson, with a figurine of a young woman, portraying Sola, a waitress in 18th century Karlstad who was renowned for her sunny nature and became a symbol for Karlstads sunny atmosphere. The commander and his crew promised that it would naturally be awarded a place of honour aboard the new vessel.  
 
The many other guests attending the ceremony included Director General Gunnar Holmgren, Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV); Rear Admiral Anders Grenstad, Chief of the Royal Swedish Navy; Eskil Erlandsson (Centre Party), Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence and, from ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, of which Kockums is a part, Christian Eckel and Torsten Kncker. Kockums was officially represented by acting CEO Ralf Kube.  
 
HMS Karlstad, in common with the other vessels of the Visby series, is constructed of carbon fibre, featuring full stealth capability, making her almost impossible to detect with radar or other sophisticated sensors, such as IR imaging equipment.  
 
HMS Karlstad is designed as part of Swedens new rapid reaction force and is well equipped to fulfil this role. The ability to see and hear all, while remaining undetected oneself, offers a number of tactical advantages. The commander can also decide to exit stealth mode, should he wish to reveal his presence, and then vanish again.  
 
HMS Karlstad can handle everything from Mine Countermeasures (MCM), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), surface combat, marine surveillance and maritime protection to general maritime support. She is also designed to provide emergency support at the scene of marine accidents and to participate in international peacekeeping missions. HMS Karlstad and her sister Visby-class vessels constitute a very considerable addition to the operational strength of the Royal Swedish Navy.  
 
HMS Karlstads crew comprises 43 men and women, of whom 16 are conscripts. The vessel is 72 metres long, with a draught of 2.4 metres. She will displace 650 tonnes when fully fitted. Powered by a combined diesel and gas (CODAG) turbine arrangement, she has a top speed in excess of 40 knots, precise figures being classified.  
 
The Visby corvettes enhance the strength of the Swedish Navy and offer a considerable advance in flexibility, said Ralf Kube, Kockums acting CEO, addressing the assembled guests. He expressed his thanks to FMV for excellent cooperation throughout a highly complex and forward-looking project.

More ship transfers news:
===================================
 
Two More Warships Readied for Taiwan
 
The second pair of U.S. Navy Kidd-class missile destroyers is set to head to Taiwan, completing a 2003 deal that significantly improves the island nations surface fleet.
The Tsoying (former USS Kidd) and Makung (former USS Chandler) are conducting sea trials off the southeastern U.S. coast, according to a spokesman for VSE Corp., which is handling the overhaul and modernization of the ships in Charleston, S.C. The destroyers are expected to leave Charleston on Sept. 3 and head to the Far East.
 
 
An earlier pair of ships was delivered last year. The Keelung (former USS Scott) and Suao (former USS Callaghan) completed their trials in October and were commissioned into Taiwanese service on Dec. 17.
The four ships originally were ordered by the Shah of Iran as missile versions of the U.S. Navys Spruance-class destroyers. Built by Litton Industries at Pascagoula, Miss., they were taken into U.S. service after the Shahs fall from power and entered service in 1981 and 1982.
 
 
The ships are armed fore and aft with twin Mk 26 missile launchers, a system that has been replaced in the U.S. Navy by vertical launch systems. Decommissioned by the U.S. Navy in 1998 and 1999, they were offered to several nations before Taiwan agreed to purchase the ships.
Two more ex-U.S. ships, the minehunters Oriole and Falcon, are expected to be sold to Taiwan next year.
 
 
In another deal, the U.S. Navy and India reached an agreement on July 31 to transfer the amphibious transport dock Trenton when the ship is decommissioned in January, according to the U.S. Navy. The Trenton will be the first former U.S. Navy ship taken into Indian service and the largest amphibious ship India has operated. The handover of the Trenton will be done on a hot transfer basis, where the American crew hands off directly to the new Indian crew.

Interesting news from Turkey.
 
=====================================
 
Turkeys government has given the financial go-ahead for a nearly $1 billion program to shoot down ground-to-ground missiles, launching what industry sources and analysts predict will primarily be a U.S.-Russian competition.
Ankaras move comes as the United States and Iran head for a showdown over Tehrans efforts to develop nuclear technology and medium- and long-range missiles. Iran is Turkeys eastern neighbor.
A top procurement official in Ankara said that Treasury officials, on orders from Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, have agreed to finance the medium-range, surface-to-air missile defense program that aims to build a modest but costly shield to protect Turkeys militarily and strategically important locations.

Iraqis to Take Control of Their Army, Air Force, Navy

By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Aug. 28, 2006 The Iraqi government is slated to assume control of its soldiers, sailors and airmen sometime next month, a senior U.S. military officer told reporters in Baghdad today.

The Iraqi Ministry of Defense, through its joint headquarters in Baghdad, will assume operational control of the Iraqi army, as well as the countrys air force and navy, in early September, Army Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell, spokesman for Multinational Force Iraq, said at a news briefing.

This is a significant step in the Iraqi path to self-reliance and security, Caldwell said. What this means is that the Iraqi Ministry of Defense is prepared to begin assuming direct operational control over Iraqs armed forces.

Iraqs 3-year-old armed forces have been rebuilt from the ground up as a modern and effective fighting force, Caldwell said. Iraqi army divisions have fought alongside coalition forces under the commander of the Multinational Corps Iraq, he added. Coalition forces also have worked to train the new Iraqi army, which now stands at about 115,000 soldiers.

an interesting article on the US testing and possible aplication of laser weaponry............
========================================
 
Laser-Cannon AC-130 Tests Begin
A laser-cannon version of the AC-130 gunship has begun flight testing, according to U.S. Air Force and Boeing Co. officials. The low-power flight tests began Oct. 10 and continue through the fall.
The flights over the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico involve evaluating how well the laser gunships target tracking system works. A low-power, solid-state lasers serves as the surrogate for a high-powered chemical laser still being developed.
The high-powered laser was fired for the first time on Sept. 21 in ground tests at Albuquerque, N.M., an achievement known as "first light," a Boeing statement said. The ground tests will continue through the fall.
In 2007, Boeing will install the high-powered laser in the C-130H and fire the laser at ground targets. The laser beam will be fired through a rotating turret mounted into an existing 50-inch-diameter hole in the C-130H's belly.

New Anti-RPG Technology Proves 80% Successful in Tests: NATO
By BROOKS TIGNER, BRUSSELS

NATO allies have moved closer to equipping their helicopters with an added layer of passive protection against rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) after recently testing new prototype technology, the alliance said Oct. 19.
The announcement follows the successful Oct. 10 testing in Bulgaria of anti-RPG technology. Results point toward an 80 percent probability of protection.
Participants saw that only one in nine shots exploded, Nikolay Yankov, Bulgarias national armaments director, said in a statement. This is a dramatic improvement from last years testing.
Noting that rocket-propelled grenades are extremely dangerous threats to helicopters during take-off, hovering and landing, Lt. Col. Krassi Kouzmanov of NATOs Defence Investment Division, who observed the trial, said, This technology will help diminish that threat.
The passive-protection technology was a collaborative effort between Bulgarias Ministry of Defense and its national Academy of Science, though Greece and Poland are also involved. The technology remains to be tested in actual field conditions, however.
Thus, the next step is to fit it to a helicopter so that RPG debris impact and the influence of different weights and shapes can be measured, according to NATO, which said more testing will be required before the technology is judged viable for use by allied forces.

US Rejects Finnish Request for Cruise Missiles
 
(Source: STT Finnish Government news; issued Feb. 2, 2007)
 
 
US officials have rejected Finland's request to buy Lockheed Martin joint air-to-surface standoff missiles (JASSMs) for the Finnish Air Force's 62 McDonnell-Douglas F-18 aircraft, Helsingin Sanomat reported Saturday.  
 
The cruise missiles, with a range of more than 370km and a 450kg warhead, would have been part of a wider F-18 update package.  
 
Currently the Finnish `Hornets, lacking surface strike armament, are prefixed F for fighter instead of the standard F/A for fighter/attack.  
 
Helsingin Sanomat drew the conclusion that the decision not to allow the sale was a sign of lukewarm relations between the two countries.

South Korea
----------------
 

South Korea Seeks F-15K Stablemate

February 20, 2007: South Korea is buying another twenty modern fighters, for $120 million each. While South Korea has already bought 40 F-15K (a variant of the F-15E) for $115 million each, they are examining the Russian SU-30, European Eurofighter and French Rafale. This is partly to show the Americans that they do not have a lock on additional F-15K sales. So far, 18 F-15Ks have been delivered, and the South Korean air force is happy with them. But if other contenders come in with an offer they can't refuse, South Korea will seriously consider it. The decision will be made by next January, for aircraft to be delivered within two years.

Lockheed Martin Compact Kinetic Energy Missile Successful In Final Flight Test

A Compact Kinetic Energy Missile (CKEM) launch.
by Staff Writers
Dallas TX (SPX) Feb 21, 2007
The U.S. Army and Lockheed Martin has conducted a successful flight test of the Compact Kinetic Energy Missile (CKEM) against a T-72 tank recently at Eglin Air Force Base, FL. All objectives for this test were achieved. The T-72, equipped with Enhanced Reactive Armor, was engaged at a range of 3400 meters. The flight evaluated CKEM's lethality while also gathering missile guidance and performance data.

This was the last scheduled launch under the current CKEM Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD), and was conducted with the Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center.

Two key advantages of CKEM are its deployability and tremendous overmatch in lethality. The CKEM Weapon System provides increased countermeasure effectiveness and survivability while allowing the soldier to engage the toughest and most sophisticated targets.

CKEM's ATD demonstrated a path forward for a smaller, lighter KE missile that can be integrated on to both current and future combat platforms and has the ability to fill current lethality gaps against enhanced reactive armor and active protective systems. CKEM will be particularly effective in bridging the Army's capability gaps identified for the Infantry Brigade Combat Team and the Stryker Brigade Combat Team by ensuring lethality at both close and extended ranges.

"There is nothing as incredibly powerful as CKEM when it comes to Line-of-Sight engagements," said Rick Edwards, vice president - Tactical Missiles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "CKEM's proven hit-to-kill technology is the only successful system which will fill FCS lethality gaps for close and extended engagements."

Lockheed Martin received a $78 million contract in 2003 for CKEM's ATD phase. CKEM is the next generation kinetic-energy missile. It is less than 60 inches long and weighs less than 100 pounds, yet has an extended range for direct fire, line-of-sight engagements and provides the Infantry Brigade Combat Teams, Stryker Brigades and Future Combat System platforms needed lethality overmatch against all potential target sets.

Raytheon HDAM Missile Successful in Test Flight Against Low-Power Radar Source
 
(Source: Raytheon Company; issued Feb. 21, 2007)
 
 
TUCSON, Ariz. --- Raytheon Company's HDAM missile completed a series of free-flight tests by successfully engaging a radar system emitting low-power levels - a new accomplishment for an anti-radar missile. HDAM stands for HARM destruction of enemy air defense attack module.  
 
The new HDAM variant adds INS/GPS (inertial navigation system/Global Positioning System) capability to the battle-proven HARM (High-speed anti- radiation missile), greatly improving HARM's effectiveness while eliminating the possibility of fratricide. Earlier test flights validated the missile's improved software and INS/GPS capabilities.  
 
The third and final U.S. Air Force free-flight test of HDAM was the most challenging as the missile was fired against a low-power emitter. To fully test the missile's capability, the HDAM only looked for a low-power emitter source at a very close range to the target. In spite of these severe challenges, the missile successfully detected, engaged and attacked the low- power source.  
 
The flight took place at the China Lake Test Range, Calif. The missile was launched 25 nautical miles (approximately 29 statute miles) away from the target by a Block 50 F-16 that was flying 0.8 Mach (more than 500 mph) at 25,000 feet. The HDAM then demonstrated its ability to execute the fastest time-critical attack of any air-to-surface weapons available to U.S. forces today. Results met Air Force expectations with a high level of target probability of destruction assessed.

Britain in Talks with U.S. on Hosting Son of Star Wars
AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, LONDON

Britain said Feb. 23 it was consulting with the U.S. about possibly hosting part of a U.S. "son of Star Wars" shield against a feared missile attack from rogue states like Iran and North Korea.
Washington announced in January it had begun negotiations with Poland and the Czech Republic to install a radar and 10 long-range missile interceptors, angering neighboring Russia and stirring an outcry in Europe.
The U.S.-British talks are at a very early stage with Britain bidding to be "kept in consideration" as a possible location for the system, a spokesman for Prime Minister Tony Blair said.
The confirmation came after the Economist weekly reported that Blair had been "discreetly waging a campaign" for several months because he believed the system would make both Britain and the U.S. more secure.
It said that a new missile silo could be sited at an existing US military base in Britain, though not at RAF Fylingdales in Yorkshire, which is home to early-warning radar equipment used in the system.
The magazine said Washington must still decide where in Europe to locate the silo, but it cited U.S. studies calling Britain an ideal site for tracking and engaging a missile in "mid-phase" as it travels through space.
It quoted U.S. officials as saying that the interceptors are purely defensive weapons that are just chunks of metal without warheads that would destroy ballistic missiles through impact in space.
The BBC said Blair has discussed the shield with U.S. President George W Bush and the prime ministers chief foreign policy advisor, Sir Nigel Sheinwald, has been working with the US National Security Council on the issue.
Blairs spokesman said: "We have certainly been engaged in conversations with the US about this." But he could not confirm the BBC report.
He said that the Economist piece went "too far" in its description of the discussions, although he did not elaborate.
"The objective of these conversations was to make sure that the UK is kept in consideration to be one of the locations for the system should the U.S. press ahead with the system," he added.
"These discussions are at a very early stage," the spokesman said. "No party to these discussions has got as far as discussing the specifics."
Liam Fox, the main opposition Conservative spokesman on defense, told BBC radio that the government must explain whether the shield was "applicable and practical" and outline the nature of the threat against which it might be used.
