How Americans will deal with weapons of Russia around the world

94
The large-scale proliferation of Russian and Chinese weapons at times increases the likelihood that the United States in the event of a military conflict will be defeated in the confrontation with tanks, drones, armored vehicles, artillery and electronic warfare systems, which are now superior to their American counterparts, writes columnist for The National Interest magazine Chris Osbourne. Article leads New Inform.




“Already, tanks, drones, airplanes and ammunition are an integral part of the armed forces of many countries. For example, the Russian T-72C is in service with the Iranian army, other Russian tanks also serve in Syria, Libya, India and even in North Korea. In Pakistan and Bangladesh, Chinese-made fighting vehicles are present. All this says that the highest ranks of the United States need to take this into service and do something about it, ”the article says.

In addition, if US forces launch a ground operation in Syria, they will certainly face a huge amount weapons and Russian-made equipment. It is possible that such a scenario can be avoided, but in the USA this situation is in any case a serious threat.

Therefore, in order to be ready for anything, as well as to avoid unnecessary losses in the event of hostilities, the Pentagon is reinsured by inventing various military scenarios of confronting alleged enemies "using the most modern weapons and technologies." For such purposes in the United States created a special battalion. According to the publication, using the experience of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, the US military will still be able to track down and destroy small groups of the enemy, and training will be able to contribute to this.

The primary task of these workouts with the use of advanced technologies is not to defeat the enemy, but to predict his tactics.

The US Army Command emphasizes that the country has already shown how to fight those who are fighting for the “wrong goals.” “It is also important to always be ready for possible conflict scenarios. That is why developments are underway that, in the event of hostilities, will be able to defeat strong enemies in the person of Russia and China. Naturally, while these countries are not real enemies of the interests of the United States, however, given the current situation in Syria, which remains tense, the States must be prepared to withstand the two powers, ”the author writes.

According to him, reliable assistants in the proposed war will be "GPS-guided missiles, which have proven themselves in the Iraqi and Afghan campaigns." For example, "it is likely that X-NUMX-mm Excalibur long-range projectile, which can destroy targets at a distance of more than 155 km, is used." The same can be said about the MLRS MLRS, which performed well in Afghanistan during the destruction of the Taliban.

Osborne also recommends not to forget about the drone drone, which became an integral part of the US Army.

Perhaps the United States is somewhat lagging behind Russia and China militarily, but by conducting regular training, the American army can, if necessary, show all its power and highest capabilities, concludes the publication.

The rest of the time, make marching throws in full combat gear. Well, of course, no gadgets. I managed to write a letter in the evening before the end - I was lucky. No means no.

    The Americans, in general, are also arming themselves with Kalash at home. At least many in the collection have Soviet and Russian weapons - SVD, AKM and RPK. Or their civilian clones in the form of saigas and other animals.

    According to the publication, using the experience of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, the US military will still able to track and destroy small groups of the enemy, and training can help.
    With a large-scale confrontation with Russia or China, there will be no small groups. And if they do, then they, too, are not "bast sewn."
    For example, "it is likely that the use of a 155 mm Excalibur extended-range projectile, which can destroy targets at a distance of more than 30 km."
    But nothing that each such projectile costs 150-200 thousand bucks? But we are talking only about small enemy groups? Well, judging by the latest missile attack in Syria, the Americans do not mind putting money down the drain. "Rich Pinocchio" still print greenery.
    In general, they are touched by the reasoning of these clever people who give recommendations for the war with the Papuans.

      The experience of Iraq has shown that a coalition of the most technically developed countries in the world is capable of inflicting severe defeat on the army of a small third-world country that is in international isolation. And the experience of Vietnam has shown that if a small third world country is not isolated, then a war against it can go on for decades without any tangible result.

It has always been like this in Russia, how many unsolicited guests have found peace in our land and cannot be counted ... But the Russian does not want war, because he knows WHAT this is, in every family they know ... Unlike mattresses.

    The primary task of these workouts with the use of advanced technologies is not to defeat the enemy, but to predict his tactics.
    What's this? Do they have a battalion named after Professor Xavier? with the people of He and other mystics ??? Or "Minority Opinion" revised ???

    The time is not far off when the long arms of America, in the form of their aircraft carriers, can be cut off in the open ocean-sea with a simple fishing boat. Technology is evolving, and ammunition delivery vehicles are the same. And it’s not a fact that in the near future Americans will meet with such "hybrid" weapons, that it is better for them to stay at home and not to hang out. And there are plenty of weapons in the world, and not only Russian ones.

      Now I wonder if all those conventions and treaties will work if the weapons are covered by civilian objects? it’s the road to hell when everything, including ambulances, will be destroyed without talking. and all because some genius got the ideal idea to disguise himself as civilians.
      you do not accidentally answer me why there is a military uniform and each country has its own characteristics? otherwise you can listen and the army can be disguised as civilians, and in that case, why should you dress it in uniform and spend money?
      saying these words you encroached on the main rule of modern warfare. minimization of civilian casualties.

        Respected jonhr !
        I understand you, but still you did not carefully read my comment. In it I did not speak about the armies of any states and their actions "not according to the law." I meant actions that can be done by states against which the United States and its allies are waging an illegal war. What war can be legal? How can you bomb states without declaring them out? Is it legal? And such actions are now taking place around the world, remember the bombing of Yugoslavia by the Americans. So those countries (for example, the DPRK) can create such weapons that can get to the Americans. And do not need for this military uniform. Twin towers attacked suicide bombers, so they were in uniform, with epaulets? There would be no American aircraft bombing Libya, Iraq, Syria, Yugoslavia, so there would have been no attack on September 11 towers in America. Look first for the cause of wars, and then its consequence.
        Yes, I myself for the peaceful resolution of all conflicts, do not rank me among the aggressors ... wink

          I wrote about belonging to the state of a soldier. throwing their soldiers without identification marks or disguising them as civilian states deprives them of all rights. such soldiers are not subject to the Geneva Convention and are not considered prisoners of war if something happens. the poor are poor, but no matter how violent the wars are and millions of soldiers die, certain rules exist and basically the belligerents abide by them, and soldiers are the same people and the state is obliged to somehow protect them in such cases

    Half of the American equipment will crumble before reaching the battlefield. There were only half of the missiles. And the damage was done conditional, fake planes knocked out. The mountain gave birth to a mouse.

    The US army, the politicians from the parallel world, and the uncontrolled pricing of arms purchases by the Pentagon will defeat the American army without a single shot.

    The national debt is not so big: 18 trillion. $, a little over 98% of GDP, with 5 trillion. $ internal, in fact - owe it to themselves. For Austria, Sweden, and Norway, the percentage is close to 200. And no one talks about their imminent "demise."
    For the Russian Federation, this is $ 515 billion, ~ 25% of GDP. Just GDP differs by more than an order of magnitude.
