The Pentagon has completed the deployment of interceptor missiles in Alaska

37
The United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has completed the deployment of land-based missile defense systems in Alaska, reports RIA News a message from MDA Director Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves.




MDA and Boeing installed the 44 interceptor in the launch shaft of the anti-missile complex at Fort Grills,
said greaves.

According to him, the installation of the rocket took place on November 2.

Earlier it was reported that by the end of this year 44 missiles will be deployed in Alaska, which, according to official data, are intended to intercept missiles from the DPRK and Iran. Recently, the White House sent an additional request for redistribution of funds to Congress to establish additional 20 interceptors in Alaska.

According to the head of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems Leonid Ivashov, the missiles at Fort Greely are in fact directed against the Russian and Chinese missiles.

The Iranian rocket will never fly over Alaska and the North Korean too, but the main beam of the trajectory of Russian and Chinese rockets is just going across the North Pole, calling on Alaska exactly on the territory of the United States,
he said.

At the same time, Ivashov noted that Russia already has designs for the breakthrough of missile defense.

        And can these missiles at least bring down something? A very big question. I have not heard about the real and successful tests of their missile defense in as close as possible to modern combat conditions.
        In general, let them put on their territory wherever they want, this is their business and their budget.

          Approximately 50% success in testing. They will have to let 2-3
          interceptor for each ICBM. So far, 44 missiles are enough.
          Plus, in California there is a safety net - another ten such missiles, plus
          THAAD systems that hit ICBMs already on the descent.

    That's okay. And then, as always, the Americans rubbed ears in Iran, the DPRK, themselves not believing this. It is clear that from this direction they are concerned about Russia and China.

    Chinese from what kind of arsenal? They obviously have the shortest path - through the Pacific Ocean.

    not after, but in the opposite transverse direction.

    interceptors must be installed in northern Canada, east of Alaska.

          The shortest distance from point to point is marked on the map. And this trajectory passes through Alaska. And they pass very close to the north pole, so we can say that through it. And if you take the point deeper, then the arc rises even higher.

    Still, I did not understand why China did not master launches through the North Pole.

    "The American airline Continental Airlines launched a flight New York - Hong Kong through the North Pole and Siberia on the so-called cross-polar route, reducing flight time by more than two hours. Now, the United Airlines and NorthWest Airlines are also flying these routes from North America to Southeast Asia. "

    Digression.
    In fact, with all the anecdotes about the Chukchi, they are a very historically great nation in their region.
    In general, all local in the tail and mane.

    According to the head of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems Leonid Ivashov, the missiles at Fort Greely are in fact directed against the Russian and Chinese missiles.

    That's just logic and knowledge show that Americans are right, not Herr Ivashov

    Well, the fact that some have not heard about the tests of this system does not mean that it is not functional ...

    I won’t say anything about percentages, we need to raise the materials according to the test result. In count. we can say the following. Given the likelihood of hitting a simple target with one missile (that is, without means of breaking through missile defense, that is, false targets), it is enough to launch two interceptors on one target ..

    There are 4 launchers in California right now. FOUR. The TAAAD will also be able to contribute, but only as the penultimate line of defense and for "simple" goals

    You can read and be touched by anything. But how many missiles like Voevoda can be intercepted by such a missile defense system to say that it is not fate against Russia? But then you’ll have to reconsider your point of view, about which you write

    If it were so simple tongue But to the island, from where 4 km to the United States (and not to Alaska), almost 40 km is far from a calm sea. Plus from the island of Kruzenshtern to Alaska 40. Plus to the mines 1100. By the time they get there, the war is already over laughing

    Not actually "Geographical Criticism". and the optimal placement of interceptors. Flexible enough from a tactical point of view. And for missiles going through the pole, and for missiles aimed at the continental United States from the DPRK. The interception range is about 2000 km. With a maximum intercept range of 5000 km, this type of anti-ballistic missile is a perfectly normal location.

    It's nice to deal with such a connoisseur of geography. In terms of knowledge in geography, you can only compare with the old man Hottabych. If you have the Bering Strait has a width of 4 km, then there is nothing to say.

    2. The trajectory of the Iran-US missile (with a range of less than 12 thousand km, which is not something beyond the limits)
