Briefings (23/01/10) : A400M, US defence budget, DPRK base

There have been "zero major issues" with the A400M so far into it's test programme. It has now conducted 7 test flights. Indeed the aircraft seems very good, the only problems appears to be political and financial...

Seven major weapon programmes could be for the chop under plans for the 2011 US defence budget. The C-17 and JSF second engine are again in the gunsights.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il secret (well no longer surely) mountain base has been revealed. Mount Baekdusan has been excavated and would be his command centre in the event of an invasion (or coup).
