Kingdom for the European market—in contrast to its competitors in the same market space, such as Nike (Nike, Inc.) and Adidas, who design products in the US and Europe but outsource the majority of their footwear and apparel to manufacturers in China, Vietnam, and other developing nations. The result of this corporate decision is that the shoes tend to be more expensive than those of New Balance's competitors. To offset this pricing discrepancy, New Balance differentiates their products with technical innovations, such as a blend of gel inserts, heel counters, and a greater selection of sizes, particularly for very narrow and or very wide widths. The military history of Thailand encompasses a thousand years of armed struggle, from wars of independence from the powerful Khmer Empire, through to struggles with her regional rivals of Burma and Vietnam and periods of tense standoff and conflict with the colonial empires of Britain and France. Thailand's military history, dominated by her centrality in the south-eastern Asian region, the significance of her far flung and often hostile terrain, and the changing nature of military technology, has had a decisive impact on the evolution of both Thailand and her neighbours as modern nation states. In the post-war era, Thailand's military relationship with the United States has seen her play an important role in both the Cold War and the recent War on Terror, whilst her military's involvement in domestic politics has brought frequent international attention. By the end of the period, indigenous revolts amongst Khmer territories in Siam and Vietnam, and external attack from the independent kingdom of Champa, sapped Khmer strength. After the sack of the Khmer capital Angkor Wat by Champa forces in 1178-9, Khmer's ability to control its wider territories diminished rapidly. The first Siamese kingdom to gain independence, Sukhothai (Sukhothai kingdom), soon joined to the newly independent Ayutthaya kingdom in 1350. After 1352 Ayutthaya became the main rival to the failing Khmer empire, leading to Ayutthayan conquest of the Khmer in 1431. The British victories (First Anglo-Burmese War) over Burma in 1826 set the stage for a century in which the military history of Thailand was to be dominated by the threat of European colonialism. Initially, however, Siamese concern remained focused on its traditional rivals of Burma and Vietnam. Siam intervened in support of Britain against Burma in 1826, but her lackluster performance inspired Chao Anouvong's surprise attack on Korat (Nakhon Ratchasima#History). Lady Mo (Thao Suranaree)'s resistance established her as a cultural heroine, and General Bodindecha's victory two years later established him as a major figure in Thai military history. His successful campaign in the Siamese–Vietnamese War (1841–1845) reaffirmed Siamese power over Cambodia. In 1849, weakening Burmese power encouraged revolt amongst the Burmese controlled Shan states (Shan people) of Kengtung and Chiang Hung. Chiang Hung repeatedly sought Siamese support, and ultimately Siam responded with the initial despatch of forces in 1852. Both armies found difficulties campaigning in the northern mountainous highlands, and it took until 1855 before the Siamese finally reached Kengtung: though with great difficulty and the exhaustion of Siamese resources ultimately resulted in their retreat. These wars continued to be fought in the traditional mode, with war elephants continued to be deployed in the field carrying light artillery during the period, De la Bissachere, cited Nossov, K. ''War Elephants'', 2003, p.40. often being a decisive factor in battle. Heath, I. ''Armies of the Nineteenth Century: Asia, Burma and Indo-China'', 2003, p.182. Meanwhile, the visible military weaknesses of China in the First (First Opium War) and Second Opium Wars with Britain and later France between the 1830s and 1860s encouraged Siam to reject Chinese suzerainty in the 1850s. Siam, however, was under military and trade pressure itself from the European powers, and as King Rama III reportedly said on his deathbed in 1851: ''"We will have no more wars with Burma and Vietnam. We will have them only with the West."'' Commons:Category:Vietnam

(File:Battles Of The Wilkes Expedition.gif) : ''Main article: Novara Expedition (SMS Novara (1850)#Novara Expedition)'' Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian also initiated a large-scale scientific expedition (1857-1859) during which the frigate SMS Novara (SMS Novara (1850)) became the first Austrian warship to circumnavigate (circumnavigation) the globe. The journey lasted 2 years and 3 months and was accomplished under the command of Kommodore Bernhard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, with 345 officers and crew, and 7 scientists aboard. The expedition was planned by the Imperial Academy of Sciences in Vienna and aimed to gain new knowledge in the disciplines of astronomy, botany, zoology, geology, oceanography and hydrography. SMS Novara sailed from Trieste on 30 April 1857, visiting Gibraltar, Madeira, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, St. Paul Island (Île Saint-Paul), Ceylon, Madras, Nicobar Islands, Singapore, Batavia (Jakarta), Manila, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Puynipet (Pohnpei) island, Stuarts, Sydney (5 November 1858), Auckland, Tahiti, Valparaiso and Gravosa (Dubrovnik) before returning to Trieste on 30 August 1859.
