Dictatorialy run countries tend to brag of their weapons...often boasting of weapons that are still on the drawing board.
As I said before, my grandson works in weapons development, but he can't and won't, give me even a whisper of what he is doing. ...And I don't expect him to.
He honors his top secret clearance...but I bet there are some surprising things going on in the little old, "skunk works" where he is employed.
Does anybody remember the SR71 Blackbird? W were flying that over the Soviet Union for years, until they finally got lucky and shot down Francis Gary Powers.
Up until then, the US wasn't bragging..and the Soviets were tight lipped, out of embarrassment, because they couldn't touch them !
