@Spartan, don't stay glued in the camps, pull a stunt & tell those generals you have other 'callsigns' elsewhere to adhere to.

What's happening around Entebbe & Kosovo, Soldier?
I agree witcha, this guy knows what he's talking about. He is a civilian with very little understanding/appreciation of security matters, working for an opposition newspaper which sees everything the current government does thru political blinkers.

Having failed to influence political discourse here, or even sway public opinion significantly as to cause political change, some journalists have decided to jump in bed with the devil (read  anti-Uganda elements) and have not hidden their intentions. The US has the Patriot Act to take care of divisive, treasonable acts like these. Here in Uganda we have nothing like that, and no action can be taken against a journalist like him. But we are the ones in a dictatorship, not the US.

Having dispensed with general points, now off to specifics;

1. Security is the foundation upon which everything is built. No one can go to work, visit a hospital, send kids to school or leave their home when there's no security. The people of Gulu, Arua, Adjumani, Koboko towns in Uganda and the whole of South Sudan where Sudanese Antonovs used to bomb as late as 1996, because Uganda and South Sudan had no airforce to speak of that could take on the Sudanese airforce, can attest to this. One wonders therefore, how old this journalist is that he can't put this perspective into his story.

2. Security is expensive. The US, despite having deployed no nuclear weapons between 1960 - 1910, has spent astronomical amounts of money on its nuclear deterrent. Its expected to spend around $180bn on maintaining its nuclear arsenal between 2010 -2018. Now, don't get me wrong. Uganda is no US. The US believes some countries harbor/ or may in future harbor aggressive intentions towards it and that it has to be prepared just in case. We have no reason to digress from this view.

3. The writer asks what enemies Uganda has to merit the purchase of just six fighter planes. This question is answered by the postulation above.Six jets aren't the end of the reformation of the UPDAF airforce, but the beginning. Those jets barely form a squadron ( a viable fighting unit in the airforce).

4. The writer fails to put his piece into perspective of the current geopolitical developments and instead appeals, cheaply, to the common stereotype about H.E M7 that he's a warmonger! Is Uganda preparing to go to war against Kenya [Its main lifeline to the coast], South Sudan [with whom it has excellent relations], DRC [with the full glare of the international community], or Tz and Rwanda [with whom it has no quarrel but excellent trading relations]? The writer comes across as a poorly paid school dropout who decided to make ends meet in journalism.

This is a serious site. I don't expect us to get mixed into domestic politics of individual countries. This is the last time am addressing nonsensical issues

It is right that Kenyana is always improving. It is not only right, it is necessary for that matter. We are an organisation of rock-solid realism & clear-eyed realism. We must build a more stable regional-order, politically, economically, legally & security-wise. We are the sculptor of our own image. Development plans are being choreographed every morning in the region, it's either one joins or abandons the crew, there's no in-between.

Chaps like the writer of this article in the Monitor have their chances being ruined. @Spartan, thanks for the head-on, nothing less than what I would expect from a patriotic Ugandan - Nothing like taking sides in the politics of the day. And yes, the politics are still coming to birth, I am very aware of that. Na uvae kirauni kikamilivu!

Tuyagage yajayo.

Afande Sir, from what I've noticed , Kazan produces variants with the shape of the nose as that of the first pic and a flat ramp. The bottom pic is of a Mi17 from Ulan because of the shape of the nose and clam shaped ramp doors

Mmmmmh My guy I don’t know. My be you could have some insight but based on what I know about Russia’s  aviation industry, kazan or Ulan ude have no hand on finally appearance on those helicopters or in short it wouldn,t be more pronounced if any changes .

What I thought was that the Mi-8/Mi17/mi171 , body wise , started in a Glass nose and a clam shell rear, redesigned to a glass nose and ramp rear and  finally a “dolphin nose” and a ramp rear http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoxCOSp3Nuk
. In the marketing sphere the glass nose were inline with the US Huey UH-1 while the Dolphin nose with Blackhawk.  The dolphin nose/ramp design  lead to the Mi-38 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFC6ySL6AvY  how I wish Smile

To substantiate my first paragraph  the Russia aviation industry rolls as follows. they are divided into two companies.
 
1.Design bureau.
2. Assembling plant.

Sukhoi = Su, Mikoyan  = MiG, Yakovlev  = Yak, Kamov = Ka (also helicopter) and the debated Mil Moscow = Mi are nothing more than design bureau. They do nothing else apart from design and draw the blue print of the aircrafts.
Assembling plant ; Kazan , ulan ude (rotary),Tashkent Aviation Production Association TAPO (fast jet) among others ,as the name suggest manufacture what the design bureau hands them over.  During peace time or when production is low they manufacture domestic items like refrigerators or automobiles.

 More of an architect and constructor relation so I don,t expect a constructor to change the design of architect unless may be from a request from the Customer or the designer.
So who sales those aircrafts???? A marketing Bureau….get the red tape in Russia’s procurement system??

As in yre 2000 to compete with the west and stream line bureaucracy, all design bureau were placed under one organization. The United Aircraft Corporation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Aircraft_Corporation#Company_structure for fast jet and the Oboronprom Corp OPK  http://www.oboronprom.ru/en  for helis.

From the little I've read, I think Mil bureau also manufactures. There is also a factory in Rostov for different models. Kazan is different, not only do they manufacture but they also have their own designs, for example Ansat. Ulan also builds airplanes. I was just wondering why UPDF would have the same registration for different helos

i think I would say one is a replacement of the other.

intresting though risasi talked about dolphin nose/ramp as the latest model.. where do our mi-17 lay then.. it seems its the second version as he explained in his brief. couldn,t we have got a newer version like UPDF dolphin nose/ramp ?

@Balozi, ours are the Ramp version. I think the dolphin nose is just an addition since these craft have very modern 'glass' cockpits.

Ha ha ha  @balozi  body styles have nothing to do with the variants or new released choppers but more of the customer’s request and requirements.  I believe the UDPF were meant for general utilities and logistic.

Our Mil Mi came in primarily as Spec Ops tools and secondary as a utility platform.in our Spec Ops regiment  we have  teams especially meant for night mission, similar to the US army 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment the Nightstalkers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/160th_Special_Operations_Aviation_Regiment_(Airborne)
.  Nighstalking requires specialized helios that can fly low and in pitch black night a night modified utility choppers.  The 160th use the MH-60 Kilo. The Russia use the  Mi-8MTKO/Mi17N and Mi-8MTV-2RN. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Russia---Air/Mil-Mi-8MTKO/1674603/L/
The external visible difference  from the general utility  Mi-8/Mi-17 is it comes with a Low Light TV (LLTV) camera in its right chin unlike its general utility cousin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRBH0z4ae_o

The KDF operates the Mi-171E in a Mi-8MTKO/ Mi-17N suit/config. the mi171 airframe,  provides a larger cabin volume needed for cargo and passenger transport add on are a LLTV GOES-321M turret (right),  a Forward Looking InfraRed cam (left) , nose radar , a gps and extra external fuel tanks (top on each side). One cam is for piloting and one for recce_ing. The Glass nose is suitable  for 180deg night flight view compare to the dolphin nose

Shots fired at Museveni’s motorcade, drunk SPLA soldiers blamed

Post  Sierra Kilo on Sat Feb 22 2014, 20:06


Gen Museveni Aboard a UPDF Casspir near the conflict flash town of BOR in South Sudan

JUBA: The surprise visit to Juba South Sudan of Uganda’s President Museveni almost ended in tragedy when a group of unnamed combatants – now believed to be intoxicated SPLA fighters – shot at the President’s motorcade close to the airport in Juba, Saakam has learned.
Witnesses at the scene said perpetrators were summarily rounded up shortly after being beaten like rented mules. They had been boozing for days anticipating an assault by rebel forces, and booze – it is believed- multiplies the targets a soldier can aim at and shot effectively in combat.
The shots did not even come close motor and no one was injured as – except of course the soldiers some of which lost the few remaining teeth they had after surviving tribal initiation, tobacco-use related tooth loss and using years of opening beer bottles using the teeth.
Reactions following the incident suggest that the soldiers – in their traumatized and intoxicated state – mistook the strange mix of forces UPDF and the President Kiir private army as rebels attacking or preparing to attack them.
The incident did not seem to have impacted the visit as Pres. Museveni stayed a few more hours visiting his forces, meeting with the President of South Sudan, and flying over an island north of Juba believed to have been gifted to him by South Sudan.
Speaking to an Ethiopian bar tender later that day in a bar by the River Nile, an official who attended the meeting was heard saying the delegation travelling with the President was only interested to know whether the alcohol consumed in by the SPLA was a produce of Ugandan, and whether Uganda can capitalize on that business.
“At the rate these soldiers drink alcohol, imagine the business opportunity we (Uganda) has in South Sudan. If we succeed in selling them our Waragi (alcohol)… don’t worry about the rebel, celebrate your independence, the UPDF will defend the airport and Nimule road to make sure the booze keeps coming…,” a voice was heard saying.

Question

Post  Guest on Sat Apr 12 2014, 13:53


Does anyone have an opinion on whether it is fair to conclude that the greatest security threat for Ug is its own military. Taking into consideration its history of civil war, current political situation(dictatorship), and  having about a large number of veterans with combat experience plus its 50,000 active military personel?
