Re: Russian State Armaments Program 2011-2020

The Russian economy is based on oil being at least $82 a barrel. With oil now around $30 per barrel the Russians will run out of money next year and will have reign in their military spending

Re: 17 year old in the RAF in 1947?

National Service men only got half pay as they were not classed as proper Soldiers yet they were expected to fight and die along side the regulars.
