THIRD TIME AROUND

The proposed new Pentagon strategy is called Third Offset because it is considered as important as two previous strategic changes that took advantage of U.S. technological leadership to overcome operational challenges: President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s “new look” in the 1950s, which relied on nuclear weapons to offset Soviet force numbers, and the “offset strategy” pursued by Defense Secretary Harold Brown in the late 1970s, which combined precision weapons with new reconnaissance systems to disrupt potential Warsaw Pact aggression in Europe.

REAPER LOVE

Impressed with the performance of its first two U.S. MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial systems (UAS), France is looking forward to delivery of a third in early 2015. “We made the right choice, if you believe the users,” Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told French lawmakers last month, adding that the General Atomics-built Reaper has enabled “meaningful” engagements in support of the French-led Operation Barkhane in Mali, and that the U.S. technology is superior to that of France's four Harfangs built by Israei Aerospace Industries.
