Hello Folks, The Professional Defense Analysis and Discussions Forum is intended for those who are in the defence industry or those who have experience in the military. However, regular members and guests can also view the threads/posts but will not be able to post replies, or download attachments. Since discussions in the "open" forums always seem to get off track even with one of the strictiest moderation on the internet; we believe this place would serve as a "refuge" for defense industry professionals and military experienced members to relax and have productive and focused debates and discussions among each other. We hope that other "hidden" professionals (those who are just visitors and readers) would like this idea, join in and participate in the discussions. How do you join this group? Some requirements (must meet one): You must be in Defence Industry If you are not in the defence industry, you must have some type of experience in it (either in the past or present) You must be in the Military services Or you must have past Military experience If you are a student in a university / defence studies institute studying defence issues and related subjects, you may also join. If you demonstrate enough knowledge of the field in a professional and respectful manner on our regular forums, you can also join or you may be approached by one of our moderators/admins to give you an invitation to join Defense Professionals Group on Defence Talk.
