MOSCOW - Russia is developing a new air-launched cruise missile for use by its long-range bombers. This missile is capable of striking targets out to a distance of 1,000 kilometers.

The Tu-22M3 Backfire will carry the X-32 cruise missiles. Russia's Backfire regiments currently arm their Tu-22M aircraft with the X-22 missile.

Moscow claims the X-32 can defeat missile defense systems. The Tactical Missiles Corporation, which is part of Rainbow Design Bureau, is working on this missile.

The X-32 has a range of 1,000 kilometers and can reach a speed of more than 5,000 kmph. The work on the X-32 began in the early 1990s, with the first launches of this missile occurring about 10 years ago.

Meanwhile, Makeyev is developing a new ballistic missile. This new missile will be built for fifth-generation "Husky" nuclear-powered submarines. This missile may replace the Bulava SLBM. The Husky fifth-generation submarines are to replace Project 885 "Yasen" boats.

CAMBRIDGE, UK - The Irish Defense Forces have taken delivery of two more MAN HX 60 4 x 4 armored trucks fitted with Marshall Aerospace and Defense Group’s armored shelter for their EOD units.

These new vehicles will augment those already in service supporting Ireland’s UN missions operating in the Middle East where the Defense Forces’ EOD teams deploy in their armored vehicles as part of route clearance operations or to handle unexploded ordnance found by the UN forces operating in the area.

The Marshall designed shelters have been laid out to maximize storage for all the equipment needed by the team including the EOD officer’s bomb suit, x-ray system and forensic sample collection equipment and to give the team space to work in safety.

Housed in the shelter is the team’s robot, which can be operated remotely from the safety of the shelter.

The vehicles are equipped with an integral tail lift for deployment and recovery of the EOD robot and have a standalone generator so the vehicle can operate autonomously.

Marshall has a history of providing engineered vehicle systems including geo-intelligence units, ISR ground stations and a variety of military support vehicle load bed solutions.
