NATO recognized high efficiency of new Russian weapons

18
The weapons systems created in Russia in recent years, including the Caliber missile system, are “very effective,” reports TASS Statement by the Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Forces of NATO, the head of the European command of the US Armed Forces Curtis Scaparrotti.



Speaking at congressional hearings, the general stated that Russia "is at this stage modernizing its systems, and is also building new ones for the future."

They retooled their aircraft and ships for certain means of destruction, which are very effective,
said Scaparrotti.

The system "Caliber", for example, can be placed on the ground, in the air and at sea. So we are talking about a multifunctional system that gives them (the Russians) great coverage, accuracy, and so on,
he admitted.

In addition, “their nuclear forces are also increasing their potential in all areas, indeed (there is) an improvement in their potential compared to the old systems,” the general noted.

At the same time, he expressed confidence that the modernization of weapons allows Russia to reorient, including such activities, which "increases the risk of the outbreak of hostilities."

      Recognize and demand money for "opposition". And again in a circle: there are few weapons and more.

      ++ This is a general would tell in how many countries they got into rattling weapons since 1991 ...
      It seems to me or not that the bar of "hysteria" is now raised by all who can?
      In general, if you listen to General Skaparoti, about the main thing is our “Gauges” and the modernization of nuclear weapons is so sticky.
      Moreover “Their nuclear forces are also increasing their potential in all areas, indeed (they are) improving their potential compared to old systems, the general noted.
      At the same time, he expressed confidence that arms modernization allows Russia to reorient itself, including to activities that "Increases the risk of hostilities."

      And the last phrase should be translated into a normal language, which means that Russia is ready and if it will be necessary to fight and fight for its National Interests and this he calls the "risk of military operations" ... aunt Scaparroti, a time when Russia was silent and could only defiantly deploy plane over the Atlantic leaves ..
      Amen.

      If Russia fought with all the provocateurs, everyone would have long dealt with the problems of building a bipartite in a nuclear winter. This ram does not even know how to express itself diplomatically, rushing like a tank with its own nonsense.

    Nothing new. Russia still remains the main threat to NATO, for the sake of which it itself was formed. Remove your tanks from the Baltic, for starters, and the risk will immediately become less.

    They started for health, finished for peace ... Oh, the general is cunning, so if new and effective weapons creep into the enemy, they can fly in the teeth, and with old weapons iron him in vain ...

      Most likely, this general, like others, is connected with the military industry, with the military-industrial complex of the States. His speeches brainwash the Senate and the President in order to cut the country's budget for the release of new weapons. Well, how do you stop the conveyor? Competitors are not asleep.
      It all comes down to the wallet ...

    Yes, for starters, they will try to blow up inside as it was with the union, let's see how everything will be in 2018, but if it doesn’t work out, it might go according to the worst-case scenario.

      They didn’t stop “trying”. 2018 will be immediately before 2019 and so on.
      While at least one Mace or Poplar flies in response to them further attempts to cut us off from the markets they will not jerk. Their strategy is destruction through economic and political isolation with a simultaneous information war directed inward. Now they are actively occupying the former Warsaw Pact and the torn post-Soviet space under their sphere of influence, they will not attack right now, they must first swallow this piece. Lessons from those who tried to swallow everything and immediately learned clearly.

    The weapons systems created in Russia in recent years, including the Caliber missile system, are “very effective”
    This is precisely the Gauges that cause great doubts .... except for the range of defeat in the KR variant there is nothing supernatural there, but I would like to. Got insights from its use? - it’s even funny to discuss, is it like screaming about the exploits of the aircraft-carrying cruiser Kuznetsov in the war with the IS, when it’s not clear who caused the most damage to anyone, the cruiser to the evil Papuan tribes, or, inadvertently, to yourself?
    The fact that they shot a lot on 7.10.2015/30/1991, also down the drain, is something childish. Where is the data on the results of that blow? About 300 missiles could well cause damage. Did the enemy have an air defense system? No. And most importantly, did this affect the course of hostilities? Something after this IG does not go much to the settlement. Here's a very simple comparison - the Gulf War of XNUMX: did Iraq have air defense? Let not the S-XNUMX, but at least something, unlike the IG .... Then, for almost a month, Saddam's army was rammed with bombing, and as soon as they went on tanks, the war ended immediately. High-precision weapons were needed to open air defense, destroy communications and control centers (disorganization of the army), perhaps all ..... other objects of attack: warehouses, bunkers, armored vehicles, etc. - unguided missiles and adjustable bombs.
    What do we see here? Yes, nothing special, if then the war lasted a month, now it’s 1.5 years after the start of bombing and missile attacks!

    Here is a simple answer - and the Gauges are ineffective as a weapon, or not tested for at least some kind of air defense, and their use is ineffective - instead of destroying important objects of comparable value, they are most likely sprayed to attack warehouses or shoot at small groups of militants. And we emphasize that the fighting is not in the mountains and the jungle, where you can hide.

    And finally, if a potential adversary praises a weapon, this is at least a reason to think.

    About Zircon, until there is a real application, it is also worth keeping silent.

    The NATO troops brought troops into Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, practically occupied Ukraine, and they dare to talk about something else! The rudeness of these barbarians has no limit. They regret to say that the "22 of June" does not shine for them, but rather, "Stalingrad." Surely regret that at the end of the 90's they did not finally solve the "Russian question".
