Russia says it’s designing its own V-22 Osprey, and it could make Moscow’s elite paratroopers even deadlier

Russia says it’s planning to design its own tilt-rotor aircraft like the US’ V-22 Osprey, with experimental design work slated to start in September. The aircraft will be given to Russia’s elite Airborne Forces, or VDV, which are often Moscow’s first troops on the ground. If Moscow actually builds the aircraft, and heavily arms it like the US, it could be a deadly addition to Russia’s paratroopers. Russia says its planning to design its own tilt-rotor aircraft like the US’ V-22 Osprey, according to The National Interest, citing Sputnik, a Russian state-owned media outlet. “A tilt-rotor aircraft, or convertiplane, is planned to be created for Russian Airborne Forces,” Sputnik reported,… Read More

Hurricanes’ Dougie Hamilton: Flames defence ‘didn’t turn out so good’

The National Hurricane Center issued a storm surge warning for those and other areas along the Mississippi and Alabama coastlines, and sea levels rose as much as five feet there on Tuesday night.

Honor launches the Honor 8X in China (and it’s massive)

Huawei’s consumer-oriented smartphone sub-brand, Honor, today announced the general availability of the Honor 8X in China. The most eye-catching detail of the Honor 8X is the size of its display, which measures 6.5-inches and boasts an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, which Honor says isn’t too far from the 21:9 ratio found on cinema screens. For context, the display on Samsung’s massive flagship, the Note 9, measures just 6.4-inches. At the top of the Honor 8X’s screen is a notch which, to its credit, is pretty small — although it can’t hold a candle to other more minimalist notches, like that… This story continues at The Next Web …read more Source::… Read More
