Military Review

Impact on Russia should be expected from space

15
The militarization of space is not far off. The Pentagon, according to the statement of the US Air Force commander Heather Wilson, began to consider outer space as a "field" for combat operations. Spending on the creation of relevant technologies amounted to more than $ 10 billion. Already now several suspicious vehicles are in Earth orbit, the purpose of which is to monitor the satellites of other countries.

    Russia’s strike from space will not only survive, but also reflect. The main thing is that there would not be a new blow from the inside ....

    Why complain. Send American more RD 180s, even if they don’t do anything to themselves.

      let them not do anything to themselves.

      Stop whining, crew Oparyshev! ... There are two reinforced concrete arguments - why this should be done:
      1. Impressive foreign exchange earnings.
      2. Who told you that only we produce engines of this class? Is there something similar in the world ... Tell me - is it more expensive and worse? I agree ... We just win healthy competition. And if we refuse tomorrow, then the day after tomorrow we will see how China does this ... (((
      3. In a year, in the worst case, in two, this Lafa will end anyway ... They should have their own.

        They have their own engines in the internet and photos and videos have the engines themselves and a description and 3D models and even the enterprises that produce them.

        But it really infuriates that it seems to some that our engines have no analogues in the world.

        And this taking into account the fact that gas turbines for stations, 2 contour engines for airplanes and turbines for ships, we can’t do it ourselves and purchase from abroad!

        PS
        A turbine is an order of magnitude more complicated than a rocket engine.

          I will not say anything about the turbine ... But Kapitsa seems to have heard that the most high-tech product in the world is considered to be a turbojet engine ... And there they chewed for a long time - why? And some ... hmm ... current, measure the manufacturability of the industry with iPhones ... Oh well, the jester with them ... wassat

            I can chew you why iPhones are the most technologically advanced in a nutshell.

            When the first turbojet engines appeared, there were no iPhones.

    States open up a new sphere of arms race - space! We can’t answer, otherwise we’ll lose ... So it turns out that hard times lie ahead for the people, science and the high-precision production base of 6 economic structure ...
    Lord, when will they rest in the Bose !?

      Until they rest, they themselves will not rest.

      Space weapons impress with their effectiveness.

      Count 5 minutes and the blow has already been done to the object from space!

      And do not build anything in Poland ...

      There is boxing and there are MMA fights, so there the fights take place not only in the weight category, but also in the experience of fights.

      And you offer a fighter of light weight and without experience to hit an experienced heavyweight ...

    NPO PM is practically worth it. He can’t build another workshop for 3 years. Now in the block under construction the window gaps are closed with plywood from snow. Something is being done. But a little. There are no orders and financing. I don’t know what is in the “Shop”. According to rumors, it’s not better.

      Our leadership understands that we are in space exploration, decades behind the United States, and to catch them in this direction - we need tens of trillions of rubles and years of work. But there is no money, so we will continue to lag behind. Russia will not foresee its new Buran and Energy in the next 15 years. As a cab driver, we will soon be kicked out by the very same Americans, where competition between several companies in space exploration is already yielding good results, both in terms of the cost of cargo being withdrawn and of new missiles.

    As I recently asked, maybe someone in the know, but for now, silence, maybe everything is so fake:
    "... On the first day of next month, Russia decided in response to US sanctions to stop the supply of RD-180 rocket engines. This means that the US space program is stopped for at least ten years ..."

    According to the data of late August, published by foreign sources, the satellite-inspector dropped by the Kosmos-2519 platform was in orbit with an inclination of 97,92 ° with an apogee height of 667 km and a perigee of 650 km. The orbit parameters of this product almost completely coincided with the characteristics of a larger carrier vehicle. Being in close proximity to the “Cosmos-2519”, the satellite-inspector, using his onboard devices, could “inspect” it and transmit the collected data to the control center.
