Strategic bombers on Guam will provide pressure on Pyongyang

22
The US command intends to maintain in the foreseeable future on the island of Guam a constant rotational presence of at least one of its strategic bombers to ensure pressure on the DPRK, reports TASS Statement by Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force David Goldfin.




If you look at the (recent) past, you will see that in reality we have all three (strategic bomber) on a rotational basis present at (base) Andersen (on Guam). And the situation will continue to be this way. In reality, not so long ago, all three (strategic bomber) were present there simultaneously. So you'll see B-52, B-2 and B-1 bombers on the basis of continuous rotation,
told Goldfin reporters.

The constant presence of one of these types of bombers, (based on Andersen) is something you can count on at any particular moment,
He stressed.

The B-52 turbojet and the latest B-2 stealth bombs are capable of carrying nuclear warheads, in contrast to the B-1, which, in accordance with the Russian-American strategic arms reduction agreements, was re-equipped in such a way that it could no longer carry nuclear weapon. However, the aircraft among the three strategic bombers in the arsenal of the United States is able to take on board the largest load.

B-1 is able to fly from Guam to Pyongyang in less than three hours.

        It’s interesting, but how did they “slaughter” V-1, that it cannot carry a poison weapon? I thought a missile with a JBF, from the same "normal" one, differs, only in range?

          And the S-300 in the DPRK if it appears (decommissioned)))) .. What will be the alignment? And on the border of the S-400, well, there China will drive its own .. You are the US cowards! DPRK is not Iraq, Libya, etc.
          Here a serious game begins and the bets are already up to the existence of the USA as a state! How do you like gentlemen ..? Fearfully...

          Most Americans do not know that they are exceptional, but politicians are yes - complete degradation and sharpening only to their superiority.

    Turbojet B-52s and the latest B-2 “invisibles” are capable of carrying nuclear warheads, unlike the B-1

    You probably know that the driven-out rat jumps out of a 200 liter barrel, so if the driven-out DPRK jumps out, the scribe will come to the USA for good.

    Pyongyang advised the Americans how to create an absolute missile defense system and protect themselves from their nuclear weapons. For this, it is enough to sign Trump from the White House and then sign a peace treaty with the DPRK. No expense and risk and complete cigar.

    Russia's missile base in Cuba will again solve many problems! And it would also be nice to place nuclear weapons in Syria .. hehe. Why are they worse than Israel?

    Yes, elementary. In order not to cut them, they were withdrawn from the strategic nuclear forces, more precisely from its aviation component. CH bomber has 3 bomb bay (one tail and two bow). The length of each EMNIP is about 4,8 m. When the V-1B was part of the ASNF, the partition between the bow compartments was removed in order to place the drum kit for hanging the AGM-86B cruise missiles. When the bomber was withdrawn from the ASF, the partition was re-established and the drum launcher was removed. Now this drum launcher just does not fit there. And he can carry nuclear free-falling bombs, like high-precision weapons. But the bombers who can carry the KR are counted. It can carry a B-2A, although now these AGM-129 missiles have already been decommissioned.

    She provided nothing. And you can laugh at American bombers, why not laugh. I’m only afraid that in case of conflict, the North Koreans will not be very funny when they will be returned to the Stone Age. And do not forget one more. Japan and South Korea may be at gunpoint and feel uncomfortable, but the only thing Eun can do is hit the cities. . What will be the beginning of its end

    Will not be. 2017 is not 1973. But the armament of the same bombers is radically different from the armament of that time. What can not be said about the air defense of North Korea, which stopped at the level of the 70s. Even their new air defense systems will not do the weather. Americans know how to deal with air defense systems from the experience of the Gulf War. Of course, it is possible to puff, but from this the ratio of arms and equipment will not change

    why bother with S-300, let’s supply them with S-500, or S-700, "Poplar" or "Governor".
    Well, China will drive its air defense systems to the border. The ADC range is 200 km, the BC range is 30. Is it the same with our S-400? what will they intercept? Random goals? Or will the Chinese put their complexes on the border? What will they bring down at the border with China? Accidentally flown drones? I’m wondering. And if, nevertheless, Americans smack in North Korea? Will you also call them cowards?

    But will Cubans want to have it? Didn't you ask them? And our nuclear weapons in Syria are powerful. And how will we feel if the Americans deploy their nuclear weapons in Georgia? What, do not consider such an option?

    "... unlike the B-1, which, in accordance with Russian-American strategic arms reduction agreements, was re-equipped in such a way that it could no longer carry nuclear weapons ..." - the Americans are re-equipping mastiffs, they are not bothering to quickly return all back, or make universal media.

      It will take more time to “erase” than “one moment”, even if it erases it too, which it will erase. How many trunks does the DPRK have to reach Seoul? Caliber 6 inches? Or 8? That is, how many shells will the northerners plant "at one moment"? And what part of Seoul will they damage in doing so? And how many minutes will they last from this “moment”? Are you hoping for Comrade Kim's nuclear weapons? Does it fit in a gun?
