Vietnam acquires Orbiter 2 UAS for use as an aerial forward observation artillery corps

Vietnam has acquired the Orbiter 2 unmanned air system (UAS) for use as an aerial forward observation asset for its artillery corps.

The Orbiter 2 is manufactured by Israel's Aeronautics Defense Systems, which says using a UAS instead of a ground-based forward observation officer will provide an improved "first round on target" capability for its customer.An Orbiter 2 flying at 2,000ft can supply artillery units with the co-ordinates of "a number" of targets, it adds.

Aeronautics sources say the Orbiter 2 is also now being offered by Rafael as part of deals that include the latter's Spike air-to-surface missiles, and by Israel Military Industries along with its surface-to-surface rockets.

An upgraded version of the Aeronautics aircraft is also available, with the Orbiter 2B capable of navigating independently to complete a mission, even if GPS is jammed or communication links lost. This variant also can carry payloads to assist with intelligence gathering.

Afghanistan, US sign long-awaited security pact

Pakistan Army disappointed.

 Officials from Afghanistan and the United States on Tuesday signed a long-delayed security agreement to allow American troops to stay in the country after the end of the year, filling a campaign promise by new President Ashraf Ghani.

National security adviser Hanif Atmar and US Ambassador James Cunningham signed the bilateral security agreement in a televised ceremony at the presidential palace, one day after Ghani was inaugurated.“As an independent country, based on our national interests, we signed this agreement for stability, goodwill, and prosperity of our people, stability of the region and the world,” Ghani said in a speech after the signing.Ghani's predecessor, Hamid Karzai, had long refused to agree to the deal, citing his anger over civilian deaths and his belief that the war was not fought in the interests of his country, souring his ties with the United States.

Under the terms of agreement, 12,000 foreign military personnel are expected to stay after 2014, when the combat mission of Afghanistan's US led Nato force ends.The force is expected to be made up of 9,800 US troops with the rest from other Nato members. They will train and assist Afghan security forces in the war against the Taliban and its radical Islamist allies.

Ghani was inaugurated on Monday and called on the Taliban to join peace talks. He formed a unity government with election rival Abdullah Abdullah after a prolonged standoff over vote results that ended in a deal to make Ghani president and Abdullah a chief executive in the government with broad powers.

The Taliban, fighting to oust foreign forces and the US backed government, have taken advantage of the paralysis in Kabul to launch attacks in an attempt regain strategic territory in provinces such as Helmand in the south and Kunduz in the north.The Taliban have denounced the pact with the United States and repeated that on Tuesday, calling it a “sinister” plot by the United States to control Afghanistan and restore its international credibility as a military super power.“Under the name of the security agreement, today Americans want to prepare themselves for another non-obvious and very dangerous fight,” the Taliban said in a statement emailed to the media.

“With their bulk of artifices and deceptions they want to hoodwink the people. They think that the Afghan people do not know about their conspiracies and their sinister goals.”

Turkish Army Convoy in Syria Passing Through IS Checkpoint Near Jarabulus

Been writing for long about the role of Turkey in the rise of IS. IS is a Turkish proxy.Here is a video which shows Turkish  Army Convoy passing through a IS check post.

Turkey is involved in the rise of the state and it providing the murderers food and ammunition to destroy neighboring countries of Syria and Iraq.

Just like Mussolini sold the Italians the greatness of the Roman empire, Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is successfully selling idea of Turkish superiority and glory of olden Ottoman Caliphte to Turks. He is marketing Selim 1 - notable for the enormous expansion of the Empire over the Arabs - to his Turkish voters and using the IS to accomplish those goals of conquering the Arabs.

His recent criticism of Abdel Fattah el-Sisi 2 days back can been seen in the same context.

Saudis, UAE and Egypt coming together to squash Muslim brother hood is part of the game being played in the middle east - all 3 were opposing the new Turkey plan.


All sides seems to be using the Americans/NATO in their goals of creating new Empires in the middle east.

This is what passed through the IS check point

Turkish tanks take up position near Syrian border

Turkish tanks took up position on a hill overlooking the besieged Kobane on Sept. 29 after ISIS shells hit Turkey

Turkish tanks and armoured vehicles took up positions on a hill overlooking the besieged Syrian border town of Kobani on Monday as shelling by Islamic State insurgents intensified and stray fire hit Turkish soil, a Reuters correspondent said.At least 15 tanks were positioned, some with their guns pointed towards Syrian territory, near a Turkish military base just northwest of Kobani. Plumes of smoke rose up as shells hit both the eastern and western sides of Kobani.

More tanks and armoured vehicles moved towards the Syrian border after at least two shells hit Turkish territory on Monday. The military said earlier it had fired back on Sunday after two mortar bombs crossed the border.Islamic State insurgents launched their assault on Kobani, a predominantly Kurdish town also known as Ayn al-Arab, more than a week ago, besieging it from three sides and sending more than 150,000 Kurds fleeing into Turkey."Because of the bombs everyone is running away, we’ve heard people have been killed. The YPG (Kurdish forces) have got small weapons but Islamic State has big guns and tanks," said Xelil, a 39-year old engineer who fled Kobani on Monday.

"Most people are leaving now, it was safe before but now with these bombs, people won’t stay," he said.Turkey has so far declined to take a frontline role in the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State, but President Tayyip Erdogan has said Turkish troops could be used to help set up a safe haven for refugees inside Syria if there is international agreement.
