Ex-commander of the Armed Forces of Britain: the country's army is not ready for full-scale war

61
British troops are poorly prepared for a major military conflict, and in the event of an attack in a short time will lose a third of their resources, according to a letter to the former commander of the United Kingdom Armed Forces, Richard Barrons, addressed to Defense Minister Michael Fallon. Reports about it RIA News with reference to the Financial Times.




According to Barrons, "the power of the British troops is significantly inferior to Russia," and the command, instead of maintaining combat readiness, is engaged in "embellishing the shop-window." He notes that Britain, having ships and airplanes, often does not have ammunition for them, since “it has become accustomed to dependence on American forces.”

"The army in its current state is accustomed to operating from safe bases against opponents who are inferior in maneuverability, who have neither armored vehicles, nor air defense, nor substantial artillery, nor the possibility of waging war using electronic means, nor even ballistic or cruise missiles", - Writes a retired general.

He notes that the British air defense forces are “able to protect only Whitehall (a street in central London where government offices are located)”.

“Neither the UK nor the troops deployed on its territory are able to defend themselves against the coordinated actions of the Russian aviation", The letter says.

Barrons also points to a significant reduction in the defense budget and the lack of a plan for the Royal Armed Forces to protect the country in case of a conflict.

          Ex-commander of the British Armed Forces ... let the fog

          He is EX, here is the cry of the soul, an old fighter for the World Order
          The New World Order with the Queen in the forefront rested on two things:
          1. Control of world marine trade (especially the main commodity - oil);
          2. Price control for the main commodity - oil, which is determined by trading on the London Stock Exchange.
          The first was based on the dominance of the Anglo-Saxon fleet, for which competitors in the form of Empires of competitors were destroyed and two world wars were fought.
          The second was based on control over light Arabian oil, which will always be profitable even with a barrel for 3 bucks, plus the second determines the existence of a global currency - the dollar behind which is the equivalent - black gold (that the dollar is just a paper is a big mistake)
          So the second one falls because of the end of light oil and its opening in our North, it is not even put into the pipeline, so as not to interfere with the heavy one, it is sent only by tankers, it is of such high quality, in particular, it is bought by Holland ...
          And the first one collapses with the development of the PRC fleet, India and the revolution in our KR, where their AUG in the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean is capable of drowning the unfortunate RTOs without leaving the Caspian Sea and the Russian Seas, also the MRIS system with a Container headed when it is possible to direct ICBMs to the AUG in real time. And also again pipelines when the value of maritime trade decreases ...
          Therefore, EX is right, and this is really a cry of the soul, the grants come to them, and Britain becomes a miserable, dank islet ...

      Money - yes, but I see it all this way - this same ex-defense minister is sitting, somewhere on Baker Street, wrapped in a blanket, swaying in a rocking chair. Dozing! He dreamed of how he once, running his finger on the map, famously landed troops in the area of ​​Vasilyevsky Spusk and personally hung the Britt flag on the Spasskaya Tower, and after that, satisfied with himself, he went to the local pub and told everyone how he won with a glass of ale " The Evil Empire "is almost alone! He was surrounded by the glory of a brave warrior and the queen herself favored him, calling him "My hero" .... In short, he, a bald senile, dreams of such nonsense and in the morning, waking up, he rushes to the table and writes a letter that since he resigned, everything fell apart, the army is commanded by profane, unaware that Russian special forces are already smashing dishes in the kitchens of Buckingham Palace ... Therefore, we urgently need to return him, the old fart back, because only he can once again put the "Evil Empire" in place ... laughing

        Most likely it is, but there is also History, when in 1854–55 almost all English nobles were killed in Crimea, after a dashing cavalry raid and talentedly shot at point blank range by Russian artillery, and why not even this was said in Soviet textbooks? I learned about this after visiting the panorama in Sevastopol. Although the story was a solid five, shame and shame on me.

            One order misunderstood by the liaison officer, the fear of direct executors to clarify the same with the commander - and the brigade, instead of repulsing captured Russian guns taken away by the Russians, attacks Russian guns in prepared positions under the guise of cavalry. And he does it under fire from the flanks - for in order to achieve the positions of Russian guns, the British had to ride through a valley, both slopes of which were occupied by Russian infantry and artillery.

    “The army in its current state is used to operating from safe bases against rivals inferior in maneuverability, which have neither armored vehicles, nor air defense, nor significant artillery, nor the ability to wage war using electronic means, much less ballistic or cruise missiles”

    I fully agree with the commander. What, what, and they (the Anglo-Saxons) learned well how to fight the poorly armed and civilian population with the help of aviation and cruise missiles. But only they face stubborn resistance on the ground at once, the "fighting spirit" is gone. This is not a movie about a war with popcorn to watch. But in general, another lament about the weakness of the army clearly fits into the current American lamentations, the purpose of which is one - money.

      "Who's next to cut?"
      What has it to do with the "cut". Are you worried about their budgets? "Cut". by the way, it is more of a Russian problem, it is corruption, including in the sphere of defense orders. And if our police officers "fighters against corruption" find "under the sofa" billions comparable to the good state budget of a smaller country, then where is it to "go."
      And, as regards the recent, right in unison, "complaints" of some representatives of the military circles of our so-called "partners", this is probably due to the recognition of the obvious growth of the power of the RF Armed Forces and disappointing, according to the results of their own analysis, their own Armed Forces.

      You see this comrade with the prefix EX, why this is not knocking out money, but a cry from the patriot's soul. His words are reliable, especially after a demonstration of opportunities in Syria, and when they instantly captured Crimea and no one had time to do anything, and when the time came to get the sword out of his pants, he turned out to be flabby, so he had to limit himself to howling. Believe me, this is a reality, as our ICBMs are in order, the Air Force is in our order, the Navy is in order, but everything is in order, therefore forget about cutting them, they have this norm, but the tantrum is about real things.

          Our navy is primarily a submarine, believe me there is a wonderful Soviet legacy and the wonderful Borei and Yaseny have already rushed into battle. However, in addition to this, due to the creation of GLONASS and Calibers, the Varshavyanka diesel engines with Ladas and MRKs turned into units that solve strategic tasks to defeat the enemy thousands of kilometers away, including the use of nuclear weapons, in short, burn enemy AUGs, bases and cities. Also a formidable force is represented by naval aviation, including the Tu-22M3, again with new CD, or rather, again with the capabilities received from GLONASS. Those. the absence of AUG and a limited number of ships in the far sea zone, like the RK of the Atlant and Orlan projects, are compensated for from the Caspian Sea, the main trade sea route connecting Europe and Asia - the Indian Ocean, is being pierced through from the Caspian Sea to the RTOs, plus aviation CR, all in Syria is simply demonstrated clearly, therefore, hysteria. The same "Atlanta" and "Orlan" - Peter the Great, and naturally the submarines "Ash" and "Antei", with the new RC, all the more they are reaching a new level of capabilities, they do not need to chase the AUG now at a launch distance of hundreds of kilometers, the distance has gone to several thousand kilometers, these ships have already become a threat to the metropolises, i.e. burn London and New York from the center of the Atlantic, the same Black, Mediterranean, Ice-cold, etc. I repeat, a technical revolution took place in the Navy before our eyes.

              Is this ship flashing the Indian Ocean with its 8 cruise missiles?

              This is the same. Only plus to its eight missiles (by the way, eight cities such as Tel Aviv can fry) is still attached 27 satellites, three of which are in reserve. RTOs themselves are no longer required to track targets, etc., this is introduced in the form of coordinates and volley. The fact is that the carrier of the Tomahawks in the USA are ships and boats of the far zone, i.e. destroyers, nuclear multipurpose submarines and already four former Ohio ICBM launchers, in the long run everything, plus British missile carriers. An innovation on our part regarding their ZHPS (because it was created to guide precisely the American KR in a strategic form, and its advantages in military navigation and also navigation for a citizen are only a bonus, I repeat, created it is to guide the Kyrgyz Republic on targets on the territory of the USSR) these are more advanced strategic missiles, located on the vessels of the near zone. In terms of cost and costs, the vessel of the near and far zones goes one to ten or more, and construction time also takes place. More RTOs are river-sea vessels, and there are simply no enemy naval forces in the Caspian. Also, our GLONASS - its main task is to direct the Kyrgyz Republic, all other advantages, including the bombing of the Air Force and the citizen - a bonus, although we even had to rename our Air Force in the VKS thanks to satellites. So you yourself consider it a revolution or not. And Gauges stuck in shipping containers and hit the enemy, i.e. in bases, fleets and ... cities can now be from anywhere and from anywhere. Before Syria and the attacks from the RTOs, the Anglo-Saxons laughed at our commercials, after the attacks on ISIS they have constant tantrums, and their responsible workers, both active and EX, cry about the insufficiency of the armed forces against the Russian Federation. Moreover, Germany, Britain and the United States, plus the commander and ECU of NATO forces in Europe, are already singing about a single EU army, etc.

Here, there are still many regional countries that cannot afford a strong fleet, having bought rocket boats, but putting containers on dry cargo ships, just at some point to melt the Anglo = Saxon fleet and destroy their military bases, so to speak, Russia is not just preparing to confront the World Order, but is preparing global rebellion against him. This type of weapon has been prepared for this, so as not to use the Thermo-nuclear weapon, but at least to limit it to low-power ones ...

                  Also, poor patrolmen turned into rocket ships. By the way, the distance from Derbent to Sri Lanka is slightly less than 5000 km, and from Derbent to London 3700 km. High-explosive gauges fly 2000 km, with a special nuclear head 5000 km, these are the possibilities. In the variant for marine purposes, when jumping out of the horizon it switches to supersonic, when performing anti-aircraft maneuvers, it makes turns at which Tomogavk simply falls apart, etc.

                      Normal subsonic CD, not stealth.

                      Firstly, it was originally made as universal. In the anti-ship version, there is an active search for the target of the GOS. At the subsonic level, it flies until it leaves the horizon, until ground-based air defense can fix it, then switch to supersonic with anti-aircraft maneuvers (just supersonic missiles have large dimensions and short range, a hybrid was made here that allowed not to increase dimensions, not to lose range and at the end, all the best from supersonic). The main stelstechnology, like Tomogavka, is small dimensions, the absence of large keels and wings, and most importantly, low flight altitude, i.e. jumping from the horizon to the target for 18-20 km at sea, and on land, depending on the folds of the terrain where it is stolen. The curvature of the earth does not allow it to be seen, if it is not ZGRLS. Also, the main know-how was that it could be made with a caliber of 533 mm for standard torpedo tubes and launchers of old boats, patrol boats, diesel submarines, etc., including ships of a higher rank, i.e. now there is a massive re-equipment of our junk, although new RTOs are being built for it, but they do not need to be expected to increase combat power, and in the future (if the agreement on the INF Treaty is broken), shooting from the Iskander platform. About camouflage under a sea container, and so everything is clear. If the Tomahawk is now designed for accuracy to destroy the limited power of our mines, launchers, and radars with a landmine due to increased accuracy when abandoning a special warhead, but with an increase in the number (several thousand). Ours is initially designed for gigantic reserves of the Russian Federation in nuclear weapons, from 5 to 20 thousand charges, the infa is of course closed, but ours on them refuse to even condemn the issue of reduction. In addition to the transition to supersonic, of a smaller size, which made it possible to equip a mosquito fleet and disguise as a civilian, ours flies lower, more advanced anti-aircraft maneuvering, i.e. popping up from the horizon is much closer to the target, which has less time to fix, and supersonic and maneuver reduces the time and possibility of missile defense.

                        Tomahawks can't make a revolution

                        One way or another, the Tomahawks are now the main unit of the US military doctrine, the so-called "Disarming Strike", when the CD strikes the main enemy air defense targets and ICBM launchers, and the second wave's aviation, with air superiority, completes the job. I repeat, the ZHPS was created for targeting Tomogavks and now only the Russian Federation with GLONASS has such a thing. No other country can afford this in a global sense, the PRC and the EU are pushing to create something like this, but there are still ten years before deployment, and the world end will happen earlier. In our Doctrine, of course, an ICBM retaliatory strike (or the first if there is a prospect of a threat), now plus American capabilities, but with the use of tactical nuclear weapons, plus the neutralization of the enemy's fleet (Universal Caliber). Also, although the United States tried to make the Tomahawk universal, i.e. in addition to striking stationary targets, they could not be used as anti-aircraft and even used from aircraft, but they could not. The only aviation - strategic one, they had only AGM-86 and only with B-52, which they wanted to write off, but after the appearance of Caliber and our attacks of the Kh-101 (102) from the Tu-160, they again had to leave the old man. All their other CDs are designed for use with B-2, B-1b, but they are non-strategic, with a short range and are not capable of carrying a nuclear charge, i.e., like your thinking about breaking through air defense with stealth invisibility, we will not to argue about this, it is enough for MRIS and ZGRLS Container to close this topic completely.

    So disperse the army, cut off all the aircraft, disassemble the fleet into needles — life may become better.

      Do not do this! The Russian army can still come in handy!
      China is hanging, Muslim fundamentalists are threatening.

      Although without military spending, the standard of living in the country will increase,
      You are right about something.

      Yeah, China will remember the opium wars, and India a couple of centuries of lawlessness in his country arranged by the British .. Is it worth it to whistle and these will attack? So you think. You are talking nonsense, Meehan ..

        There is no need to simplify the attitude of Indians towards Great Britain. They remember the bad and the good. The management system in India, by the way, is quite viable, in many ways resembles the British.

    Yes, that they conspired, or what? Yesterday the Americans are not ready, today they are arrogant ... Who will protect the geyropey values? Petya? No, I don’t play like that. Since they’re not ready, we won’t go to war either, let the Alahbabahs put them in a pose, otherwise they’re used to parasites at the expense of Russia what wassat

    NATO generals stupidly put pressure on their politicians. They themselves are well aware of what the modern big war is. They don’t want to fight in such a war, knowing better than everyone how it will end, but ... you need to knock out the budget.

    "China and the EU are trying to create something similar there, but there are still ten years before deployment, and the world will come to an end earlier" ///

    Do you sincerely think so?
    Those. Do you think that in the next 10 years the 3rd World War will begin?

      Why, then, is there an option when the Anglo-Saxons humbly yield to world hegemony and peacefully the New World Order is over. There isn’t much needed here. Oil trading will be in national currencies, and pricing will depend on market conditions, and not dictated (as, in particular, 6 bucks a barrel were made at the expense of your own price, but the USSR was bankrupt and nearly destroyed the Russian Federation) of the London Exchange (there New York, but because of the time zone, bidding begins in London and her daughter only consolidates the success). One way or another, the Russian Federation is moving towards this, while China, India, Brazil and South Africa support this trend, plus Iran, Egypt and Turkey (all of a sudden), on the other hand the Seven (we will call NATO), in which everything is not unique either. Physically, NATO can no longer dictate to the BRICS, of course because of our and a little Chinese ICBMs, and most of the wells we have or not NATO has under control (Iran, Venezuela). Also, hegemony on the Sea Route and the South China Sea to the Persian Gulf and from the Persian Gulf to the Suez Canal is threatened by our Railways, the Northern Sea Route and the construction of a pipe in the PRC. There really is another pipe from Iran to India (which Gazprom will pull along the bottom). And of course, the creation of the AUG of China and India (BRICS countries), with the Indians we lease submarine nuclear powered ships and built an aircraft carrier. Bramos with Caliber and T-50 will also go there. We are arming India and very cool. No one had ever given their nuclear boats and built a new air cruiser. This is also the plan of the Russian Federation against the hegemon. There is another problem without control over the world currency and the main commodity, they will not be able to contain 1000 military bases and 11 plus 2 (European) AUGs, and to try to turn the tide, giant funds are needed, and there is nowhere to take them (therefore, EXs are crying, etc. ) I.e. they can no longer maintain the World Order, there is no way to unleash a war and survive. And why power and money if all this burns out. Therefore, combat power and power parity is the main guarantee against war. Either they come up with some new type of weapon that neutralizes nuclear weapons or Wimans roll out to take off. Also, modern civilization is oil, but also electronic, i.e. its benefits of communication, communication, entertainment, science, a banking and trading network are all on semiconductors and naturally weapons (including advanced examples of the Israeli military industry). But nuclear weapons with their EMP completely destroy it. Not for nothing that the Anglo-Saxons went to destroy nuclear weapons with the main electronic weapon

        GPs and Tomahawks, plus Smart Bomb Stealth. All this, after one high-altitude thermo-nuclear detonation, will simply fail forever, the microcircuits will completely break through. We, on the other hand, were relying on an ICBM response, but now we have advanced in high-precision weapons with GLONASS and have advanced in electronic warfare, i.e. to crush the main trump card of NATO. So they have hysterics, and the last hope is for hypersonic missile launchers, the Tomahawk is subsonic and it takes too long for it to fly, we are a large continental country, hours fly to the centers, of course, still Aegis, but again for ICBMs it still does not, and ours made hypersonic maneuvering blocks etc. In short, on the whole, we won the arms race, both in the line of new ICBMs and tactical weapons. Yielding in the number of CD and aviation, we surpass in air defense, etc. A Caliber (plus Onyx and x-32) is an asymmetric means of neutralizing enemy domination at sea by aviation and a maskite fleet. But I repeat, the child of the ZGRLS "Volna" in the form of a "Container" began to record aircraft for 2800 and for 3000 ships in real time with a deviation of one meter. There is more than one reflection from the ionosphere. The target is visible from the surface to an altitude of 300 km, i.e. it also duplicates the early warning radars. Creeping CDs are visible, stealths are visible (the frequency does not allow deflecting and irradiation from above), AUG is perfectly tracked (they worked out the Wave on them, but planes began to fix it too). This is a real all-seeing eye. There will be ten containers in all directions.
