The Pentagon will pay more than $ 540 million for a new batch of Trident II missiles

33
The US Department of Defense issued a contract to Lockheed Martin to manufacture a new batch of Trident II ballistic missiles, reports RIA News message of the press service of the military.



Lockheed Martin Space Systems provides 540 millions of 834 thousands and 51 dollars for the Trident II production contract (D5) and the deployment of their support system,
says the Pentagon release.

It is reported that the terms of the contract must be fulfilled completely by September 30 2021.

According to the press service, work on the production of ballistic missiles "will be carried out at factories in 15 states."

Trident II (trident) - a three-stage ballistic missile designed to launch from submarines. The development of these rockets began in the second half of the 1970s. The “tridents” were adopted in 1990 year. The maximum range of the rocket - 11300 km. It has a split head with blocks of individual guidance. The cost of one rocket in 2012 year was $ 70,5 million.

    I somehow calmly relate to such news .. Our Kulibins missile defense, did not lose time in vain, during the Cold War and at the time of the collapse of the CCC (managed to save the base ..) .. There’s not enough money, well, nothing ..

            I think this is not praise, but just the hope for a little respite, which Russia really needs (the confrontation with West Obama and K is too expensive and most importantly the hope that this howl will subside at least a little ..) There is also China and Iran .... Or do you think that old Hillary would be better ..? Strange ....

      We have a missile defense system - only in Moscow and the region, and the rest of the air defense, with a probability of 50 to 50 - can be knocked down, it can not be knocked down.

        It is necessary by this time to seriously modernize the missile defense system. In addition, it is necessary to create a global missile defense system with the participation of the SCO countries over all strategically important areas. Moreover, the United States withdrew from the treaty and does not hesitate to violate the START treaty by deploying universal launchers in Europe. It should be noted that now even the Moscow missile defense system does not guarantee protection against a layered strike. After the reflection of the first echelon, the nuclear B.Ch. missile defense will create powerful ionization in the atmosphere. Therefore, the probability of reflection of the subsequent impact is very small.

          "Even the Moscow missile defense system does not guarantee protection against a layered strike." - To be honest, this missile defense system was intended only to delay, for a few minutes, the destruction of the capital and command posts, so that the rocketry had time to launch all the missiles.

          I agree with you. Therefore, in a future war there will be few winners from both sides. All the success of the defense is now built not only on the probability of destroying the enemy's MS, but on the adversary’s awareness of the senselessness of the first strike. This “awareness” must be driven into the enemy’s head before the outbreak of this war. Unfortunately, without the "Calibers" and "Ash", this argument of a dispute about a future war is not yet valid.

          Well, we are developing Status-6, which does not care about missile defense and Europe ... or does anyone else think that this is a fake? At a depth of a kilometer there is no European or mattress missile defense, no need to puzzle over systems that allow missile defense to pass, no expensive ICBMs to be built ... a torpedo robot with a nuclear charge is orders of magnitude cheaper and more efficient, since Europe has that China or the USA, most of the industry is located off the coast. And most interestingly, Status-6 against Russia is ineffective.
          A robot torpedo, which cannot be intercepted, detected and destroyed, is like a revolver at a temple in the USA and Europe ... well, in order to completely sober up the brains of western throats, they launch such a torpedo with cobalt.

            "A torpedo robot with a nuclear charge is orders of magnitude cheaper and more efficient" - More efficient and cheaper than what - ICBMs? Once again, there will be no practical benefit from such a torpedo - it may not swim to the coast, just crawl aground or collide with reefs or ships - there are a lot of jokes under water, as well as on its surface, and if it swims, it will swim there will be a week, all the explosion energy and radiation will remain in the water - in the form of a steam "Sultan"

              This robot is autonomous, and is an unmanned underwater platform that can bypass not only reefs, ships, but also calculate its path so as to bypass detection systems ... at the same time, why did you decide that it will move to the surface if it is announced that the movement of this robot will be at a depth of one kilometer.

              Did you understand what you wrote? The charge power is 100 megatons. If it is blown up, say near a tectonic fault somewhere in California, this state will blow into the ocean ... at the same time, dear, you forgot about the zest of Status-6, THIS BEGINNING WITH COBALT, which is guaranteed to kill all life on the territory of hundreds of kilometers ...

                The charge power of 100 megatons - no one has yet confirmed this, since the more charges, the more they degrade, due to cobalt - most of 80% of all radiation will remain in the water in an explosion. "This robot is autonomous, and is an unmanned underwater platform that can bypass not only reefs, ships, but also calculate its path so as to bypass detection systems." But he doesn’t know where the detection systems are, and the United States, the Pacific and Atlantic oceans are full of them, the US Navy will be able to use active sonar radars. And in order for this robotic dashboard not to encounter anything underwater, it will have to constantly keep the speaker system on and change the depth, since the bottom is not even, which makes it very likely to be detected. And such an device will never surpass the ICBMs in terms of efficiency and cost - warheads will reach the coast 20 minutes after launch, having this 24-meter monster on board, will cost like a dozen other warheads - billions, if not tens of billions of rubles.

                  An interesting logic ... it means that Kuzkin made a mother of 57 megatons, and a torpedo of 100 megatons is somehow hard. Yes, even here, charge degradation looms, which no one knows about.

                  Dear, our submariners know the SOSUS system far and wide ... take an interest in submariners. Further, as active radars? Do you even understand how much a network of such radars costs? The SOSUS system by the way is recognized as INEFFECT by the mattresses themselves. At the same time, there is such a thing as heterogeneity of the water column .... By the way, this effect is very well used by our Varshavyanki submarines, sinking into another layer of water, which makes them inaudible to sonar ships. I explained it so simpler for you to understand.

And then, why did you get the idea that the robot torpedo will start its journey from Vladivostok? The nuclear submarine BELGOROD and the nuclear submarine KHABAROVSK are supposed to be the BEARS of these torpedoes, of which there will be from 6 to 8 units on each submarine. What weeks, dear?

A nuclear reactor, warhead, and good software. Moreover, it was stated that this robot in submerged position is capable of speeds of more than 200 km per hour at depths that are not available to the most modern submarines.

That is, it can be launched at least from the wall. And you can bring on a carrier to the very shores of the adversary.

                    "Moreover, charge degradation looms here, which no one else knows about." They know that this is why they do not have powerful charges - they are expensive and expensive to maintain.
                    "Of which on each of the submarines will be from 6 to 8 pieces." You saw the size of this torpedo - more than two will not fit on the nuclear submarines.
                    "In order to create an ICBM capable of undergoing the adversary’s missile defense guaranteed, it is necessary to develop fuel, materials, so that it flies and does not burn out in the atmosphere, think about basing, again storage, disposal, etc." All this has long been created, tested in practice and put into series - unlike the technology of this super torpedo - a robot with an atomic reactor.
                    That is, it can be allowed at least from the wall. “And she will sail for a week.”
                    "And you can bring on a carrier to the very shores of the adversary." Thereby increasing the risk of detecting a carrier with this miracle of poison. In the case of delivery by the carrier to the coast of the enemy, the question arises - why the hell does all this expensive and complicated robot torpedo need when the carrier itself delivered it to the area of ​​"direct" shooting?
