Fabian Msimang conferring officer ranks.The South African Air Force (SAAF) this morning held a joint Air Force Day and candidate officers commission parade at Air Force Base Waterkloof as the SAAF celebrates 95 years of existence.

31 candidate officers took part in the commissioning parade and were conferred officer’s ranks by the Chief of the Air Force (CAF), Lieutenant General Fabian Z Msimang, who also handed over the floating Sword of Honour to the candidate officer who excelled the most during her training. The Chief of the Air Force also announced that Air Force Bloemspruit was the Prestige Unit of the year for 2014.

“Apart from bearing witness to this commissioning parade of these new officers…we are commemorating the 95th anniversary of the South African Air Force...the second oldest in air force in the world. Through its 95 years of existence, it is evident that the South African Air Force has, and must continue to guarantee air power excellence in everything that it does. How else can it therefore be of consequence and a beacon of hope, if it does not appropriate its role in the African Agenda? This is one of the fundamental reasons compelling the South African Air Force in the coming financial year…to give special attention to capacity building and the enhancement of its capabilities.

Egypt sees Sisi leave AU summit earlyEgyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi cut short a visit to the Ethiopian capital for an African Union summit, following a wave of deadly attacks on Thursday night in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula claimed by Islamic State's Egypt wing.

Sisi's office said in a statement emailed on Friday morning he was heading back to Cairo to follow the situation. At least 26 security personnel were killed late on Thursday in four separate attacks in North Sinai, in some of the worst anti-government violence in months.

Sisi had been scheduled to address the AU summit that began in Addis Ababa on Friday morning.

Egypt is fighting an Islamist insurgency based in the Sinai. Hundreds of security force members have been killed since the army ousted President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in July 2013 after mass protests against his rule.

A Nigerian army vehicle.The African Union has endorsed a West African plan to set up a regional task force of 7,500 to fight Islamist Boko Haram militants, a senior official said on Thursday, a vital step towards securing U.N. Security Council backing.

Neighbours Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Chad and Benin agreed earlier this month to call on the African Union (AU) to seek U.N. Security Council support for their plan to take on insurgents who are fighting to create an Islamic state in northern Nigeria.

Boko Haram has made incursions into neighbouring Cameroon and threatens the stability of a region that includes Niger and Chad. Benin lies on Nigeria's western border.

"We are thinking of a force of 7,500 women and men. The next step is to submit (approval) to the U.N. Security Council," Smail Chergui, the commissioner of the AU's Peace and Security Council, told reporters on the sidelines of an African summit in Addis Ababa. Tackling Boko Haram was top of the agenda at the meeting of African leaders and officials.

Gambian leader Yahya Jammeh.A Minnesota man pleaded guilty on Thursday to federal charges in connection with a deadly coup attempt in the tiny African nation of Gambia in late December.

Papa Faal, 46, a former U.S. Army sergeant with ties to Gambia, was charged with conspiring to carry out a coup and a weapons violation. He pleaded guilty to both counts and was remanded into custody, according to court records.

Faal, from the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Park, was accused in federal court in Minnesota of conspiring with Texas businessman Cherno Njie and others of trying to carry out a coup to make Njie interim leader of Gambia, a nation of about 1.8 million people surrounded on three sides by Senegal.

Abdel Fattah al Sisi.Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi cut short a visit to Ethiopia for an African Union summit on Friday, after Islamic State's Egyptian wing claimed the killing of at least 30 security personnel in the Sinai Peninsula.

Sisi's office said in a statement that Sisi would return to Cairo after Friday morning's opening session.

The four separate attacks on security forces in North Sinai on Thursday night were among the bloodiest in years. Most of the casualties occurred in the bombing of a military hotel and base in the heavily guarded provincial capital, al-Arish.

Security sources in Sinai said three military planes left al-Arish for Cairo on Friday morning carrying 30 body bags, some of them containing corpses in pieces from the bomb attacks. They said at least five men were in critical condition and the death toll was likely to rise.

The African Union.Is Africa slowly turning the rhetoric of democracy into action? The Constitutive Act of the African Union (AU), which introduced to the continental body the values of democracy, rule of law and constitutionalism, is 13 years old. And its prohibition of seizing power unconstitutionally goes back even earlier to 2000, preceding the AU.

But the AU created a two-tier ranking of values, as Solomon Ayele Dersso, Head of the Peace and Security Council (PSC) programme at the Institute of Security Studies (ISS), pointed out at a seminar in Addis Ababa this week.

The AU implicitly ranked the prohibition against unconstitutional changes of government as a higher value by enforcing it with the sanction of suspension from membership of the AU.

Bulgarians detained by Sudanese rebelsSix Bulgarians working with the UN World Food Programme (WFP) were detained by Sudanese rebels after their helicopter made an emergency landing in Sudan's war-torn South Kordofan province, the Bulgarian foreign ministry said.

The three-member crew of the helicopter and three officers of Sofia-based Heli Air, the carrier that operated it, were being detained, a ministry spokeswoman told Reuters. The flight was scheduled from South Sudan to Khartoum.

Fighting between the government and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), which the ministry said was holding the Bulgarians, has increased in South Kordofan and Blue Nile provinces since peace talks collapsed in December.

"This helicopter flew into an active combat zone in South Kordofan that has been subject to bombings by the government," Mubarak Ardol, a spokesman for the rebels, told Reuters. "The SPLM-N thought it was an army helicopter, but after it landed they said they are with the UN.

UN will investighate Mali protest deathsUN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he would launch an inquiry into the deaths of three protesters in northern Mali, who witnesses said were killed when peacekeepers opened fired to disperse the demonstration.

The violence erupted on Tuesday in Gao as peacekeepers were meeting local leaders angry over a plan to create a buffer zone in the north that would force pro-government militia in the area to disarm while Tuareg separatist rebels would be less affected.

A spokesman for the UN mission in Mali (MINUSMA) said peacekeepers only fired warning shots after protesters threw rocks and petrol bombs at the base.

"The Secretary-General has decided to launch an inquiry to determine the facts surrounding this tragic incident. The United Nations will collaborate with the Government of Mali and all parties on the ground in this effort," UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in New York on Thursday.

SIOUX CITY | The Sioux City school district will offer aerospace education next year through a new Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program.
The district was one of two selected nationwide by the Air Force to incorporate the program into its curriculum for the 2015-16 school year, Superintendent Paul Gausman said Monday during a press conference.
The district has not decided where classes will be held, but is currently looking into an empty space at the Sioux City Public Museum or East High School. Sioux City is the third city to receive the program in Iowa. The others are Council Bluffs and Waterloo, said Alison Benson, a spokeswoman for the school district.
More than 150 students have expressed interest in the program. Registration will be available in the fall. More than 100 high schools compete for the program each year, Gausman said.

The annual Air Force Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (AFROTC) competition in Daytona Beach, Florida has been cancelled.
“The trip was cancelled because of lack of participation from other schools,” said Sargent Dave Cugier.
Members of AFROTC were set to leave on Dec. 3 and arrive back in St. Louis on Dec. 8. The competition was scheduled to take place at Lake Worth High School.
“At the competition we compete against other high schools with drill and ceremony routines,” said Cugier.
Lots of training and preparing for the competition has been taking place for the past months.
“The biggest word I can use to describe how the kids feel is disappointment. They all worked really hard. They’ve been working on their routines from late August until just a few weeks ago. It’s a major disappointment that it’s been cancelled,” said Cugier.

Rose served as the mobilization assistant to AFMC's director of logistics and sustainment as well as to the AFMC commander.
  

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Regular Reserve of the British Armed Forces largely consists of ex-Regular personnel who retain a statutory liability for service and are liable to be recalled for active military duty in a time of need. It also consists of a smaller number of ex-Regulars who serve under a fixed-term reserve contract (similar in nature to the Volunteer Reserve) and are liable for reporting, training and deploying on operations.

Since April 2013, Ministry of Defence publications no longer report the entire strength of the Regular Reserve, instead, only Regular Reserves serving under the fixed-term reserve contract are counted. As of 2014, they had a strength of 45,110 personnel.

DAENNER KASERNE, Germany — The U.S. Army Reserve needs to grow in order to then shrink the right way, says the organization's top enlisted leader.

The Reserve's current authorized end strength is 205,000 soldiers. With the reserve topping off at just over 196,000, that means there's room to expand, Command Sgt. Maj. Luther Thomas Jr., the command sergeant major of the Army Reserve, said Saturday. He was speaking at a town hall in Kaiserslautern for reservists from the 7th Civil Support Command, the Army's only Reserve command stationed entirely overseas.

By 2019, however, the Army Reserve is slated to drop to 195,000 soldiers, Thomas said.

Despite the future downward trajectory, he said the Reserve is still trying to fill its ranks. It is particularly keen on retaining and bringing in soldiers with jobs for which there's a current need. These include fuel handlers, foreign language speakers, and those working in military intelligence and psychological operations, to name some.

"The reason you want to go up is so that you come down with quality" and retain the right mix of soldiers, Thomas said in an interview after the town hall.

AFB Langebaanweg.The South African Air Force (SAAF) has won a bid to train pilots for the Royal Airforce of Oman (RAFO) at its Central Flying School in the Western Cape.

Nine students and an instructor from the RAFO arrived at AFB Langebaanweg, home to the SAAF’s Central Flying School, in September to commence a 16 month pilot’s course. The RAFO signed the agreement with the SAAF after evaluating numerous bids from airforces around the world.

The Royal Air Force of Oman operates 12 Pilatus PC-9M turboprop training aircraft delivered from 1999 to March 2000. However, due to corrosion and other problems, the aircraft are undergoing major overhaul and refurbishment by the Pilatus factory in Stans, Switzerland.

As they will take about a year to fix, the RAFO could not afford to lose out on training during this time and therefore outsourced the training to other countries that operated similar types. The PC-9M trainer is a more powerful variant of the PC-7 MK II trainer used by the SAAF.

The future Task Force Commander for the EU’s counter-piracy Operation Atalanta, Rear Admiral Jonas Haggren (Swedish Navy), visited the NATO Allied Maritime Command (MARCOM) this week to meet with MARCOM Chief of Staff Rear Admiral Giorgio Lazio for discussions concerning counter-piracy operations and other maritime security issues.

“I enjoyed our visit with Rear Admiral Haggren and we look forward to working together in the ongoing counter-piracy operations off the Horn of Africa,” said Rear Admiral Lazio. “Close co-ordination between the various counter-piracy forces has proved invaluable in helping to eradicate piracy from the waters off Somalia.”

Rear Admiral Haggren was commissioned by the Swedish Naval Academy in 1987. He previously commanded the First Submarine Flotilla and most recently served as the Head of the Navy Training and Procurement Directorate, Swedish Armed Forces HQ. He will take command of TF-465 in early 2015.

Syrian rebels using improvised mortar bombs made of cooking gas canisters killed 311 civilians between July and December this year, a monitoring group said on Friday, condemning the use of the wildly inaccurate weapons.

Two-thirds of the deaths, or 203 people, were in the northern city of Aleppo where the so-called "hell cannons" have been fired on government-held districts of Syria's second city.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the violence using sources on both sides, said that 42 children and 25 women were among the dead in Aleppo. It said more than 700 people had also been wounded during that time.

Syria's official news agency SANA said on Thursday that "terrorists" fired 11 of the improvised bombs in the southern city of Deraa, wounding several civilians.

The canisters are packed with explosives, fitted with a guide fin and fired by large cannons.
Syria's war started with a pro-democracy movement that grew into an armed uprising and has inflamed regional confrontations. Some 200,000 people have died, the United Nations says.

Chemical weapons have been used, the international chemical weapon watchdog says, and the United Nations says that President Bashar al-Assad's forces have dropped improvised and indiscriminate barrel bombs on Aleppo.
  

First Algerian Meko frigate floated
Written by defenceWeb, Friday, 12 December 2014
The first of two Algerian Navy Meko A200 frigates has been undocked and floated at a dockyard in Kiel, Germany.

The vessel was floated during a ceremony on December 5, reports IHS Jane's Navy International.

ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) received the 2.17 billion euro ($2.7 billion) contract for the two frigates, plus an option for two more, in March 2012. Because TKMS does not have large docks of its own, the vessels are being built in Kiel as part of a consortium.

Algeria has also ordered six AgustaWestland Super Lynx 300 (Mk 140) helicopters, plus a support and training package for the frigates. One of the Super Lynx was spotted in October carrying eight Denel Dynamics Mokopa air-to-surface missiles ahead of delivery. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) noted that in 2012 Algeria selected Denel Dynamics’ Umkhonto-IR surface-to-air missile for its frigates, which also arm the South African Navy’s Meko vessels.

According to Russia’s Periscope magazine, the Algerian frigates will be armed with RBS 15 Mk III anti-ship missiles, Umkhonto IR surface-to-air missiles, Oto Melara and Rheinmetall guns and MU 90 torpedoes

Libya's self-proclaimed prime minister has warned that attempts by a rival government in the east to assert control over the oil industry could escalate the political conflict dividing the OPEC member state and force it to break in two.

Libya has had two governments competing for power since August when a group called Operation Libya Dawn, which opponents say is backed by Islamists, seized Tripoli and forced the elected Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni to flee 1,000 km to a small city near the border with Egypt.

Both sides have so far avoided talking publicly about prospect of a split.

The warning by Omar al-Hassi, prime minister of the rival government, came after Thinni's government claimed air strikes on Tripoli's Mitigate airport this week, escalating a confrontation that started with an attack by Libya Dawn on a rival force in Tripoli in July.

In contrast to her words the report a table titled “DMV Strategic Risks” lists “fictitious military veterans might have been registered and receiving (sic) the military veterans benefits; duplicate force numbers, inadequate control over registration/authorisation” and “unauthorised breaches to the database”. In all three instances no actions to improve management of the risk are listed.

Somali-based piracy remains a threat to international shipping and there is no room for complacency where pirates are concerned, according to the European Union Naval Force and International Maritime Organisation.

The Operation Commander of the EU Naval Force, Major General Martin Smith MBE, visited the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Koji Sekimizu, at the IMO headquarters in London on 26 November.

Meeting to discuss the current situation off the Horn of Africa, the two leaders agreed that naval forces are still very much required in the West Indian Ocean, and that merchant ships should continue to apply IMO guidance and Best Management Practices with diligence.

To that end, Sekimizu welcomed the extension of the EU’s Operation Atalanta counter-piracy mandate to the end of 2016, which was announced in Brussels at the end of last week.

Three Merlin helicopters belonging to the Royal Navy have assisted Ebola victims in Sierra Leone through the delivery of supplies to medical teams and aid experts in the country.

Responding to a United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) request, a Merlin helicopter from 820 Naval Air Squadron lifted urgent supplies for a support camp to be built near a community care centre in Kumala.

The centre is a 28-bed facility for the care of Ebola patients, including young children under the age of 5. Because it is in a mountainous area the centre is currently not accessible by road, the UK Ministry of Defence said on November 26.

The Merlin helicopters flew 6 heavy loads of building materials, suspended below the aircraft, from the WFP hub in Port Loko.

Over 5 days 5.5 tonnes of equipment was transported which will be used to help keep the community centre operational.

Angola's military and defence expenditure will increase from the current $6.5 billion to $13 billion by 2019 due to increased demand for border security equipment, fighter jets, multi-role aircraft, helicopters, navy vessels and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

In a new report entitled “Future of the Angolan Defence Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2019,” US-based defence market analysts Market Research said Angolan defence spending will be driven by the need to modernise and improve the operational capabilities of all three wings of the Armed Forces of Angola (FAA) and a desire to increase the number of serving troops while embarking on new veterans care projects.

Negotiations between the Malian government and mostly Tuareg rebel groups, held in Algiers, broke up on Thursday without an agreement on northern Mali, officials for both sides said.

Mali's vast desert north - called Azawad by the Tuareg rebels - has risen up four times in the last five decades, with various groups fighting for independence or a form of self-rule from the government in the south.

"The negotiations are suspended without a preliminary agreement," said Cherif Kanoute, spokesman for Mali's foreign ministry, without elaborating on the reason for the failure.

Moussa Ag Assarid, a spokesman for Azawad groups, confirmed via telephone from Algiers that the talks had ended, adding that another meeting was provisionally planned for January.
