    So guys, what's your take on the latest alleged offer from Russia? Those who don't know, a reputable Croatian newspaper, or as reputable as a newspaper can be in Croatia, has published an article today about the latest Russian offer for procurement of new fighters. As part of the offset for MiG-29M2, the Russians are offering to train one Croatian Air Force pilot to become the first Croatian astronaut. What are your thoughts?

    On a related subject, I started hearing that up to 24 fighters might be bought. As far as I know, the Air Force requirement review has revised the number of fighters from original 12 to a minimum of 16-18 last year and that is official, so has it been revised upwards once again? It does sound a little too good to be true, but can anyone confirm or deny that 24 fighters will now be sought?

    24 jets?

    Well, in that case everything save the donation of those used and overused F-16 block 25 from US National Guard would be miracle.
    Since USA in recent couple of days has become fully supportive regarding the conclusion of Croatian accession negotiation with EU, especially regarding ICTY issues, it is highly likely that our side as a thank you note might just accept the offer and equip the HRZ with today relatively antiquated fighter jet, the Fighting Falcon.

    But, since this is Croatia, everything, even the abandonment of fighter component of Air Force is more than possible outcome.

    And, if someone has missed it, this is the link regarding the first Croat in space (correction, the second one, the first will be that journalist from Večernji later this year.)

    I like how the new caps, which look like carbon copies of Armed Forces' dress caps.

    New caps are much more better than that NYPD type which our police had ever since 1995.
    Before that cap was also bit ugly but this new one is much more closer to our tradition.

    Thumbs down

    Yes now they look like "komunalci"

    Why komunalci?

    The cap design is somewhat similar to this one - police force of Banovina Hrvatska, which is part of our history - and since both BiH Federation and Montenegro police also have the NYPD rip off cap style - I'm all for this new cap version.

    I agree that the new police uniforms look real nice. Professional to the last, and i'm glad they got rid of the NYPD over sized caps.

    All true, just look at old uniform of regular police (with "konobar" style jacket ) and new one
    It's simple uniform, just like constabulary should have.
