Taiwan military to allow forces to fire back after mainland Chinese air incursions



 Taiwan has redefined its rules of engagement with mainland Chinese forces, allowing its military to fire back in self-defence.

The announcement comes after People’s Liberation Army warplanes crossed a median line in the Taiwan Strait last week – apparently ignoring a tacit understanding between the two sides.

“In the face of high-frequency harassment and threats from the enemy’s warships and warplanes recently … the military clearly redefined the contingency handling regulations concerning the first strike as our right to self-defence and counter attack,” the island’s defence ministry said on Monday.

It said the island’s navy and the air force must follow guidelines that state there can be “no escalation of conflict and no triggering incidents” as well as “no provocation and no fear of the enemy” and the principle that “the closer [the enemy] approaches the island, the more active [the military must be] in dealing with it”.

Thai Army Received Budget to Supply Stryker Lot 3 in 2021


 From the discussion reserved the amendments of the Act The 2021 budget for Agenda 2 contains data from discussion showing the procurement of 10 more Stryker wheeled vehicles from the United States in fiscal year 2021 worth 900 million baht.

The procurement of Stryker vehicles was carried out in fiscal year 2019 with 70 vehicles (47 supplied and the United States assisted by giving 23 more free), totaling 3,720 million baht. In FY2020, another 50 Stryker vehicles worth 4,515 million baht, a project that has not been postponed or budgeted due to COVID-19 and continued procurement in this fiscal year

Thus, procurement of 10 more Stryker vehicles in the fiscal year around 2021 will provide the Army with a total of 130 Stryker vehicles, or approximately 3 Panzer Infantry Battalions, based on the Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT) rating. So, if the Army wants to form a complete Stryker Brigade at the actual rate, at least 192 additional Strykers will be required. It will complete the arrangement of the Stryker Brigade Combat Team rate of approximately 17,280 million baht, calculated from the Stryker price of 90 million baht per vehicle.


Long Live for the Royal Malaysian navy Laksamana class

 



The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) might experience hickups on its Maharajalela class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) but still packed with lots of lethal punches against hostile external threats especially when pitted against a Navy from neighbouring country.

Initially planned to be replaced by the Keris class Littoral Mission Ship (LMS), the four Laksamana class corvettes will continue to serve the RMN albeit as Fast Attack Craft.A plan to fit locally develop mini Combat Management System (CMS) for all of the FAC squadrons is also in the pipeline.Nevertheless, while all six Otomat anti ship missile (AShM) launchers have been removed, each Laksamana FACs still sports 40mm aft gun as well as Aspide Surface to Air Missile (SAM) launcher.


A refit program for all ships of the class has been completed. They are slated to be equipped with Gem Electronicca Electro Optic Fire Control System (EOFCS) which manage the 76mm Oto Melara main naval gun. When the Laksamanas were armed with the Otomat missiles, they could work together with the AgustaWestland Super Lynx Mk 300 naval helicopter for Over The Horizon (OTH) targeting thanks to Teleguidance telemetric system fitted on the latter.Malaysia received 20 units of Aspide SAM in 1997 with effective range 25 km (photo : Selenia)


Following the above mentioned refit, the RMN has quickly mobilised these Italian made ships under the Naval Region Command 1 (Markas Wilayah Laut 1 – MAWILLA 1) to patrol the Straits of Melaka.All four Laksamanas were deployed to Eks Perang Pangkor last May while KD Laksamana Tun Abdul Jamil was recently involved in a Passage Exercise (PASSEX) with Indonesian Navy’s KRI Sutanto, a Kapitan Patimura class corvette on August 2020.

Torpedoes and Anti Ship Missiles for Widcat Helos have Arrived in PHL




 Anti-sub helicopters' torpedoes, missiles now in PH: Navy chief


MANILA – Munitions for the major weapons system of the Philippine Navy (PN)'s two AugustaWestland (now Leonardo) AW-159 "Wildcat" anti-submarine helicopters are now in the country."Both the Spike-NLOS (non-line of sight) missiles and the BlueShark anti-submarine torpedoes are already 'in-country'," Navy chief, Vice Admiral Giovanni Carlo Bacordo said in an interview on Thursday, when asked on the status of the weapon systems of the two AW-159 helicopters.

Bacordo said deliveries of the weapons were completed in the fourth quarter last year.Israel's Rafael Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd made Spike NLOS missile will give the AW-159s a capability to engage hostile vessels beyond visual range.

While the South Korean-made LIG Nex1 "Blue Shark" lightweight torpedoes will serve as the helicopters' anti-submarine weapon and are capable of shallow and deepwater operations and can run off to a speed of 45 knots.Once the pilots and aircrew of the AW-159s are fully trained, Bacordo said he expects these personnel to train on the use of these weapons to gain proficiency in their handling.The PN's two AW-159s were acquired to complement the Jose Rizal-class frigates' ASW capabilities.

The helicopters arrived in May 2019 and were commissioned in June of the same year.The contract for the helicopters' munition, mission essential equipment, and integrated logistic support is worth PHP5.4 billion.

Keel Laid for Third Australian OPV


 Keel laid for first Offshore Patrol Vessel built in WA


The Morrison Government’s National Shipbuilding Program has reached another milestone with the keel laying for the first Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) under construction in WA.

Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC said the keel laying is an important naval tradition that brings good luck to the build of the ship and the life of the vessel by placing a coin under the keel.“This milestone marks the start of the consolidation phase for the third Arafura Class ship to be built in Australia, named Pilbara by the Chief of Navy,” Minister Reynolds said.

“It demonstrates the success of this Government’s Naval Shipbuilding plan, with eight vessels already built and another 10 vessels currently under construction at Henderson and Osborne.“Western Australia is playing a key role in the development of our national naval shipbuilding enterprise, and the Government’s $4.7 billion OPV program is spearheading the implementation of this plan and connecting with Australian industry.

“Since construction commenced ahead of schedule in March, the Luerssen and Civmec teams in WA have continued to make significant progress on building the blocks that, when complete, will form a 1,600 tonne 80 metre long OPV.“Made with Australian steel, cut locally in WA, the OPVs will offer greater endurance to undertake maritime patrol and response duties, as well as support specialist missions.”Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the keel laying was of extra significance for her given the Pilbara was in her electorate of Durack.

“I have no doubt that people in my electorate and the wider WA community will be as proud as I am of the fact that this ship will be known as Pilbara, particularly given the region’s remarkable contribution to this country,” Minister Price said.“I am very pleased that Luerssen and Civmec have been able to reach this milestone in such a timely manner, and I have no doubt that is due in part to the practices they put in place to deal with COVID-19.

“This project has created about 400 jobs here in Perth and involved more than 300 businesses across the Australian supply chain.“It is on track to achieve more than 60 per cent local industry content.”The OPVs are based on the Lürssen PV80 design.The first two vessels are under construction at the Osborne Naval Shipyard in South Australia, and will be followed by 10 ships to be built at the Henderson shipyard.

Rogue Pakistani Lieutenant General Asim Saleem Bajwa resigns after ill gotten business empire revelations

Lt. General Bajwa claims he built -
❤ 99 companies, 
❤ 133 pizza joints, 
❤ 13+ commercial properties in the US including two shopping malls worth $39.9 million through hard work

Pakistani journalist who published the story is likely to be kidnapped and killed


 






The growth of the Bajwa family’s business empire in the United States and later in Pakistan directly matches the rise in power of retired general Asim Saleem Bajwa, who is now chairman of the country’s massive China-financed infrastructure project and a special assistant to the prime minister.

Asim Bajwa’s younger brothers opened their first Papa John’s pizza restaurant in 2002, the year he went to work for General Pervez Musharraf as a lieutenant colonel on the military dictator’s staff.

Nadeem Bajwa, 53, who started as a delivery driver for the pizza restaurant franchise, his brothers and Asim Bajwa’s wife and sons now own a business empire which set up 99 companies in four countries, including a pizza franchise with 133 restaurants worth an estimated $39.9 million. Out of total 99 companies, 66 are main companies, 33 companies are branch companies of some of the main companies while five companies are dead now.

The Bajwa family’s companies spent an estimated $52.2 million to develop their businesses and $14.5 million to purchase properties in the United States, while Asim Bajwa and his department were encouraging Pakistanis to invest within their relatively undeveloped country. The businesses of the Bajwa family through different companies were named as Bajco Group.

Asim Bajwa’s sons joined the Bajco Group companies in 2015 and also started establishing new companies independent of the Bajco Group in Pakistan and in the United States after he became director general of ISPR and commander of the Southern Command.

Asim’s wife was a shareholder in all the foreign businesses from the very beginning. At present, Asim’s wife, Farrukh Zeba, is associated with or is a shareholder in 85 companies including 82 foreign companies (71 in United States, seven in UAE and four in Canada). The records of US state governments and other records related to companies show that some of these American companies (all jointly owned by Asim’s wife Farrukh Zeba) also have investments in real estate sector and own some thirteen commercial properties in the United States including two shopping centers. Estimated current net worth of businesses and properties of these companies jointly owned by Farrukh Zeba stands at $52.7 million.

In his declaration of assets and liabilities signed in June as special assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan, Asim Bajwa declared an investment of $18,468 (rupees 3.1 million) in his wife’s name. Asim declared that he and his wife have no “Immovable Property Held outside Pakistan”. Asim also categorically declared that neither he nor his wife have any “Business Capital outside Pakistan”. If in his declaration, Asim wanted to declare his wife’s investments in United States by writing Rs3.1 million in the column of “Investments”, he could never have written word “NIL” in the specific column “Business Capital Outside Pakistan”. Asim Bajwa, 57, is also now the chairman of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Family Background:

The six Bajwa brothers and their three sisters came from a middle-class family in a small town in Southern Punjab that was struck by tragedy while they were still young.

Their father, Muhammad Saleem Bajwa, a medical doctor, started as a government employee in early 1950s and then in 1960 joined Millat Hospital, a small private hospital in Sadikabad. Bajwa was shot to death on Nov. 25, 1976 while traveling on a Karachi express train.

His family’s assets at the time of his death included a few acres of agricultural land, a house in Sadiqabad, shares in a pharmaceutical company, and some shops in the city. Their father’s brother had to help them pay for family expenses.

The two eldest sons, Tanvir and Taloot went on to become doctors like their father and practiced in different cities of Punjab. The third son, Asim joined the army in 1984. Two brothers Nadeem and Faisal came to the United States in the early 1990s after completing their education from Punjab University in Lahore. The youngest brother, Abdul Malik, 49, went to the U.S. in 2002.

Management of worldwide businesses through a parent company:

In 2007, a few months after Asim Bajwa’s promotion to brigade rank by the military dictator, the Bajco companies were brought under the umbrella of one parent company, Bajco Global Management LLC, which was registered in the United States and Pakistan (liaison office). The official documents of this parent company show that Asim Bajwa’s wife, Farrukh Zeba, is an equal shareholder in the businesses of Bajco Group along with his five brothers. Farrukh Zeba is a housewife with no known business experience.
