The Weekly Recap: Secret German Tanks, Mystery Azeri Plane Crash and That Buzzkill National Audit Office




The Weekly Recap This week, we take on some hefty themes, but start with a niche report that Defence IQ offered on the Azeri plane crash in Afghanistan. It involved a healthy bit of investigative journalism on our part, but we always enjoy a challenge. We then kick it over to Jonathan Dowdall of our Defence Dateline Group to tear apart the recent German Leopard tank deal with Saudi Arabia. We do encourage a healthy bit of controversy - and since Chancellor Angela Merkel's government isn't saying anything, you can expect us to offer our two cents. Dowdall and Senior Editor, Robert Densmore, then take aim at the National Audit Office report on Carrier Strike . . . and try their best not to say, 'I told you so'.
