KC-30A Multi-Role Tanker Transport are very quiet , was in Townsville on Thursday, 3 Boeing F/A-18 flew over to land, very noisy, to fast to see if they were supers or not :( , then the KC-30 few over and it put out half the noise may be less, quieter then the passenger jets. it had it's fuel hose hanging out the back, it may of broke because it was very close to the air port. I wish I pulled my cam out :(

I follow this guy on the Yootoobs. he's an ex kiwi infantryman, and has some interesting views, along with some real serious interest in militaria and weapons.

Something that just jumped out at me was this video;

Really impressive quality items, and focused on Aussie troops.

If yer interested, have a squiz at the rest of his vids too. He's got some great material on the good old L1A1 SLR....

Unable to match Chinese might on land, an alternative could be to respond at sea. Such a riposte was floated in a semi-official strategy document called “Nonalignment 2.0”, promoted last year by some former national security advisers and blessed by the current one, Shivshankar Menon. India’s naval advantage might allow it, for example, to impede oil traffic heading for China through the Malacca Strait.
and iron ore and gas from Australia .
