1A día de hoy ¿cuál dirían que es el caza ligero por excelencia? ¿El F-16? ¿El Gripen? ¿Y si hablamos de un aparato que era la mitad de la mitad?

Para mí, este es el caza ligero por excelencia, una pequeña historia del Folland #Gnat (y su hermanastro indio HAL #Ajeet)
2El padre de la criatura era el ingeniero William Edward Willoughby "Teddy" Petter, quien había trabajado previamente en numerosas aeronaves de la firma Westland, como el #Lysander, el #Whirlwind o el #Welkin Image
3incluso trabajó en el proyecto para mejorar el #Spitfire corrigiendo cierta inestabilidad del diseño original

Tras ciertas desavenencias con la dirección de @westland, en septiembre de 1944, Peter se despidió y se llevó consigo los trabajos para la propuesta B1/44 Image

First photos of graduates from "Military Academy of #Kabul".
In #Afghanistan after pol leaders fled & soldiers surrendered, #Taliban have talked about an inclusive national #army curently being reorganised. But what hardware/capabilities will they have

🧵ImageImageImageImage
They have
-Millions of rounds of ammo
-10s of thousands of guns, radios other hardware
-1000s of MRAPs & Humvees
-Dozens of aircraft
-100s of technicians/operators

@AJEnglish had exclusive access to what #Taliban says is the beginning of its own #AirForce
Military analysts say much of the estimated $88 BILLION firepower built by US in its 20-yr #Afghan war is either obsolete/inoperable. The coalition destroyed large amounts of hardware on its way out.

Now some being rebuilt from scrap and spares.
Such as #Mi24 #Mi35 attack helis ImageImage

There are many criticisms of the #Cheetah introduction plan. No real conservation value tops the list + others like viability & cost. Disease risk is one that hasn't been discussed as much

My report

downtoearth.org.in/news/wildlife-…
Acc. to @IUCN reintroduction guidelines, “no translocated organisms can be entirely free of infection with micro-organisms or parasites, with consequent risk of their spread.”

iucn-whsg.org/node/1471
So disease risk assessments are a top priority to ensure that the 20 cheetahs are & remain healthy & to minimise risk of introducing a new pathogen into Kuno

Sound #science underpins effective conservation action, and so developing #conservationmanagement tools requires a deep understanding of #animalecology. #Scienceweek. PC: Bobby-Jo Vial Image
Where #wildlifemanagement tools rely on natural signals to modify behaviour, they must be underpinned by an understanding of #animalcommunication & cognition. Taronga's @HWConflict collaborates on several projects with @BPCTcamp unravelling African large #carnivore communication
For example, #leopard #scentmarking behaviour (doi.org/10.1016/j.anbe…); spotted #hyena latrine-use (doi.org/10.1007/s00265…); #cheetah marking trees (doi.org/10.1111/aje.12…); and scent marking behaviour of #AfricanWildDogs (doi.org/10.1111/eth.12…). PC: Bobby-Jo Vial Image

Sat down tonight to see if the harsh criticism of #WW84 is deserved. If anything, its detractors are too kind. I loved the original #WonderWoman, love #GalGadot, felt the love story angle, appreciated the direction of #PattyJenkins. But my Lord, this sequel is garbage. Thread:
First and foremost, the concept and writing are a disaster. A talented cast is brought to its knees by the plodding, contrived dialogue and juvenile plot. The blame here lies with director Jenkins, who wrote this monstrosity, and may have killed the film franchise. #WW84
#GalGadot remains a compelling star, but she and poor #ChrisPine have to wade through a hideous script that allows them none of the chemistry that drove the original. The wonderful #PedroPascal of #Mandalorian fame is reduced to comic villainous excess. #WW84
