The US Congress has allocated funds for the purchase of additional interceptor missiles.

The launch of a mine-based interceptor missile.


In early November, the US Missile Defense Agency reported that an 44-based mine-based interceptor missile was installed at the Fort Greely military base (Alaska), it was planned that it would be the last completion of the GMD mine complexes. However, yesterday it became known that Congress amended the military budget for 2018 of the year, authorizing the Secretary of Defense to increase the number of GMDs by another 28 units.

Congress argued its decision by the uncontrolled development of the missile programs of North Korea and Iran. According to the US Missile Defense Agency report, two GMD complexes located in Alaska and California can hold up to 104 mines with interceptor missiles, so their numbers can be increased if necessary.

GMD complexes are part of the US missile defense system and are designed to intercept intercontinental and medium-range ballistic missiles. GMD interceptor missiles destroy targets with a direct hit. "Warspot".

    Everything is going according to plan. As soon as they can bring down 90% of Russian warheads in the atmospheric section of the tractor and strengthen the object defense of the largest cities ... they will start ... True, not by themselves, but with the help of the geyropeytsy. Europe will not be good again.

      They don’t have time to start ... Can they bring down hypersonic nuclear fission charges?
      Paranoia will mow them all down, shouting "Russians are coming !!!" (c) and out the window.
      V.V. Putin should be silent for three months, along with our Foreign Ministry (so that not even one of his subordinates tweeted) and do a good business on diapers ...

    Why only 28 missiles for the whole year? If 4 interceptors are needed per ICBM and the DPRK rivets 30-40 ICBMs in 2018, then only in 2018 at least 120-160 more interceptors will be required.
    Who do they intend to intimidate with these interceptors, except of course themselves?

      They will have 70 interceptors. One ICBM fired by two
      missile defense. It is possible to intercept up to 35 ICBMs,
      flying to the west coast of the United States from the Far East.
      At least California and Washington are the main
      they covered their industrial and technological centers. Reasonable.
