Briefings : Astute, Hummingbird, MiG-29

Work is set to start on the 5th Astute submarine for the Royal Navy though with long lead items already being purchased for it it was no surprise. Eventually the navy will have 7 of these SSNs, could do with more though.

Boeing has begun building its A160T Hummingbird unmanned helicopter anticipating orders for it from the US military for the "cargo resupply and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions".

India has ordered 29 more MiG-29Ks for it's navy after the naval version of it's Tejas fighter slipped behind schedule.
