Malaysian airborne early warning and control aircraft

Malaysia is considering purchasing refurbished E-2C Hawkeyes from Israel according to a recent report. Considering that Malaysia does not recognise Israel, this should be interesting. Israel has previously sold arms to Iran and Pakistan which similarly do not recognise her.

Malaysia also has a requirement for up to eight airborne early warning and control aircraft! Eight! Good heavens! EIGHT!?!

Integrating the datalinks between those AEW&C aircraft and their disparate fleet of F-5Es, Su-30MKMs, MiG-29Ns, F/A-18Ds will be interesting.

Kuoby says (12:15 PM):
it's a bit small

Kuoby says (12:15 PM):
i might tinker with it

Kuoby says (12:15 PM):
7inch is too small for a screen

Kuoby says (12:15 PM):
but i won't be allowing the kids to play on it, bad for their eyes.

Kuoby says (12:15 PM):
i think the 9inch or 10inch version might be better

Chuang Shyue Chou says (12:15 PM):
Hmmm...

Kuoby says (12:16 PM):
i might get that next if it's on sale.

Chuang Shyue Chou says (12:16 PM):
I suppose you won't your kids use a mobile phone too because the screen is too small?

Kuoby says (12:16 PM):
but seriously very good for people who just want to do some work on it.

Kuoby says (12:16 PM):
you idiot!

Kuoby says (12:16 PM):
the mobile phone is different

Kuoby says (12:16 PM):
you won't do extended use on it, do YOU?

Kuoby says (12:16 PM):

Chuang Shyue Chou says (12:18 PM):
You won't play let them play with a Nintendo DS either?

Kuoby says (12:18 PM):

Chuang Shyue Chou says (12:19 PM):
A handheld console.

Kuoby says (12:19 PM):

Kuoby says (12:19 PM):
wooooooooo! mischan!

Chuang Shyue Chou says (12:19 PM):
You are truly a great wit.

Kuoby says (12:20 PM):
if you only had a wit of my charisma, you'd be in good stead.

Chuang Shyue Chou says (12:20 PM):
I'm sure.


Kuoby's choice of words and imagery say quite a bit about him, a former altar and choirboy.

Liverpool 2 Man Utd 1

What an excellent weekend! All the major teams won except for Manure! Yesyesyesyes! Manure had sought to buy their way to a new title again, like they have done so for the previous years. And the disgusting hypocritical Manure fans who could only point at Chelsea? Manure bought their titles and worse of all, they 'swiped' the players from small teams.

Remember Manure 'tapping' other teams for their players? Remember these strikers?

Remember Alan Smith who was pledged to Leeds? Well, what happened? Fortunately, he wasn't any good.

Remember Louis Saha who was playing for Fulham which was fourth or fifth place in the table? As soon as he heard that Manure was interested, he suddenly didn't want to play for Fulham. Well, good, he was injured most of the time.

Remember another Manure dirty trick over Rooney and Everton?

Remember Manure making a grab for Berbetov from Spurs?

Hopefully, this season, Manure ends up with nothing. One can only hope.
