The United States intends to spend billions of dollars on preparations for a war in space with Russia and China. This was stated by the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, reports the publication Express.


The United States remembered the program of "Star Wars" to defeat Russia and China


Our competitive advantages in all areas of warfare — in the air, on land and sea, in space and cyberspace — are being lost. We will modernize our equipment, recognizing that we cannot expect success in the struggle in tomorrow’s conflicts with yesterday’s weapons
- Said the US Secretary of Defense.

According to Mattis, the main field of the future war will be in space. While there is no question that the satellites will destroy each other. However, it is with their help that one can observe both the weather and the flights of enemy aircraft.

The head of the Pentagon expressed confidence that in space, the United States will be able to do everything to contain Russia and China. At the same time, he noted that the world needs special agreements on the control of armaments in space, reports Lenta.ru.

                It is worth noting that one of the American highly maneuverable spaceships - the automatic mini-shuttle X-37B returned to Earth in early May 2017 after 718 days spent in low Earth orbit, which is a record for vehicles of this type.

                The Air Force, which operates two X-37Bs, has always insisted that maneuverable mini-shuttles are exclusively experimental spacecraft, but refused to discuss the objectives of their missions. Just like Russians, with their patient, agile Cosmos companions.

        In Soviet times, ours cooled the fervor of the overseas by proving to them the possibility of putting "wagons with nails" into orbit at the required points in the near-Earth space.

        You are very mediocre acquainted with the very idea of ​​Status-6. One of its main highlights is that it is very effective against states such as the USA, CHINA, INDIA, and European countries, and is ineffective against the Russian Federation. Why? Yes, because industrial infrastructure and cities, for the most part, are not on the coast, but in the depths of the continent, in contrast to the above countries.

          Did I say something contrary to this concept? I suggest that deep-sea mines with powerful nuclear mines may well be located off the coast of the United States. There are, in principle, no obstacles to their manufacture, delivery, or issuing an activation order. Their long-term and safe operation at installation sites and guaranteed failure without a command raises questions. And so yes - the most effective use case is to detonate near densely populated coastal zones or natural anomalies like the California tectonic fault. It’s a pity you won’t put it into the Great Lakes. Though... smile hi

            Well, long-term operation at the point of probable undermining is not necessary ... everything can be done in rotation mode. One drone stood for three months, another came in its place, and this one went to the base for inspection. Everything is simple. At the same time, any of our submarines and even surface ships can be equipped with such drones-missiles.

        No, from the word at all. SDI is not financially and technologically up-to-date and now, unlike the budgetary Status-6. Developing a rocket torpedo for a submarine is much cheaper than putting satellites into orbit or developing an ICBM that needs to pass missile defense and fly over wild distances. often stands in a mine, whose location the adversary knows. Now try to detect and intercept the drone torpedo at a depth of a kilometer. And at such depths and missile defense can not be built.

            So you don’t take into account rotation at all? It came to its place, on duty for three months or half a year, and to the base for inspection and possible repairs, modernization, and another drone comes in its place. What’s the problem then? And with such drones you can stick around the entire coast of the United States and England relatively cheaply, and not build a Death Star, throwing trillions of dollars.

      The space warhead must be unified for flights to near-moon and near-earth orbits.
      The manned transport ship PTK is designed to deliver the crew and payload to near-moon or near-Earth orbits and their subsequent return to Earth.
      During the flight, a manned ship must provide:
      - flight from near-Earth orbit to near-moon orbit using means of inter-orbital transportation;
      - rapprochement and docking on a near-moon (near-earth) orbit with elements of the orbital lunar (near-earth) infrastructure;
      - functioning as a part of near-Earth orbital or near
      lunar orbital infrastructure;
      - flight along the circumlunar / near-earth orbit in manned and unmanned modes;
      - transition from the circumlunar orbit to the flight trajectory to the Earth;
      - submersion of DOs in a given area of ​​the World Ocean;
      - descent VA, a full-time landing VA. ensuring the safety of the crew’s health, the accuracy of the landing, as well as the suitability of the VA for further use.

      When flying to the Moon, the following ratio of the number of crew, the duration of the autonomous flight of the PTK and the mass of the payload should be fulfilled:
      - crew size - at least 4 people;
      - the mass of the delivered / returned cargo is not less than 100 kg;
      - the duration of the autonomous flight to the Moon, the flight through the OISL and return to Earth - at least 30 days;
      - the duration of the flight as part of the element of the lunar orbital infrastructure, taking into account the provision of PTC means of the element of the lunar orbital infrastructure in terms of LSS, SES, SOTR, etc. - at least 180 days with a total flight duration of at least 190 days.

      When flying in low Earth orbit, the following ratio of the number of crew, the duration of the autonomous flight of the PTK and the mass of the payload should be fulfilled:
      - crew full-time - 4 person (must be provided with the possibility of placing for the descent no more than 6 people);
      - weight: of the delivered / returned cargo - not less than 500 kg;
      - the duration of the autonomous flight of the PTK in near-earth orbit:
      1) when servicing the EZOI - at least 3 days;
      2) when performing targeted flights with a crew of 4 people - at least 14 days; 3) when performing targeted flights with a crew of at least 2 people, at least 30 days;
      - the duration of the flight as part of an element of the near-Earth orbital infrastructure, taking into account the provision of PTC with the means of the element of the near-Earth orbital infrastructure in terms of SJO, SES, SOTR, etc. - at least 365 days. ""

          In view of the fact that the KK Federation is the fruit of a political order,
          he is very unsuccessful in layout and concept,
          and here we have to rejoice about the delays in its implementation
          and hope that it will never be created.
          For flights to the moon and into orbit of the earth,
          it is quite enough Unions, or a new ship repeating at a new technical level its concept.
          Although I believe there’s nothing to do in orbit
          - you must fly immediately to the moon and make a permanent base there.
          As soon as the power of compradors and prostitutes changes,
          we will have a second Korolev who
          will make Russia the undisputed leader in space exploration,
          which will pull the development of our entire country.

    It seems that the IS-1 with a recoilless gun was successfully tested in space, and Almaz was planned to arm, probably ready or partially ready fighters and an orbital station are somewhere in the bins of the Motherland, and it’s not so much to create new products based on old designs difficult task

    1. The IS has never had a recoilless gun. Only a charge of explosives. Radius of defeat up to 1 km in front and up to 400 meters in the opposite direction
    2. "Diamond", aka "Salyut-3" was armed with a recoilless gun Nudelman as part of the defense complex "Shield-1". They planned to install the Shield-2 defense system at subsequent ones, but they did not install it on Salyut-5
    3. Ready or partially finished fighters of the 80s? are in the bins? And who, sorry, need this trash now? The pattern of using "satellite fighters" is changing. Now this is not a banal charge of explosives that destroyed everyone, both their own and others, but more subtle tools, quite possibly working on other physical principles.
    4. Orbital stations in the bins? Well, two unfinished “Diamonds”, about 5 years old, seemed to be still there, ours even suggested using them as tourist complexes for flying around the moon (together with the Americans). And so, a long time ago there are already no ready
    5. To create on the basis of old developments is now a much more difficult task than if we would create them 20 years ago. Why - think for yourself.

    Yes, because industrial infrastructure and cities, for the most part, are not off the coast, but in the depths of the continent, in contrast to the above countries.

    And they probably only along the coast? Is Chicago and all its conglomeration probably located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean?
    And take our facilities, especially shipbuilding. The Baltic and Admiralty factories in Leningrad are probably located exclusively in the depths of the mainland? Severomorsk and Severodvinsk probably too? And Sevastopol, Novorossiysk, Nakhodka, Vladivostok? Also deep in the mainland?

    Did I say something contrary to this concept? I suggest that deep-sea mines with powerful nuclear mines may well be located off the coast of the United States. There are, in principle, no obstacles to their manufacture, delivery, or issuing an activation order. Their long-term and safe operation at installation sites and guaranteed failure without a command raises questions. And so yes - the most effective use case is to detonate near densely populated coastal zones or natural anomalies like the California tectonic fault. It’s a pity you won’t put it into the Great Lakes. Though... smile hi

    Well, if they are there, then one simple question. How are you going to carry out the regulation of nuclear charges?
    Delivery barriers? Well, let's say such a question. Any inertial guidance system has an accumulation of error. Moreover, this accumulation is continuous. In an hour of running such a "Status" deviates by X kilometers. For more than 2 days of running, this error can result in XXXX kilometers. How will you carry out the correction? Further, this unit, the "Status" which has a diameter of 1,6 meters. Will there be a HOOK in the bow? What is this hack capable of? Track the distance to obstacles in all planes? And at what distance, if modern submarines sometimes have the entire bow, is a hull capable of seeing tens of kilometers, or even less? How will the "autopilot" work? After all, the speed of this "Status" under 200 km per hour. I’m not saying that he will rumble at the same time on the coast. How, how will the management system be built? Well, the main unit of guidance and control devices will be located between two cute little things. 100 megaton charge and reactor? Do you think that one and the other will not fonit? And there is something protection not observed
    Now about guaranteed triggering "on command." Will it be a timer? Or something else? Or are you going to give a command to undermine an object lying at the bottom, at a depth of several hundred meters by conventional radio communications? Or will you transmit the team on extra-long waves for several hours? What if "Status" will accept him. which should not explode at this time ??? Is it under its own carrier boat?

    Undermining the tectonic fault is really a thing. But for a change, take an interest in materials, preferably the 70s, why countries such as the USSR and the USA stopped developing tectonic weapons. You will be pleasantly surprised ...

    What's so complicated? It turns out interesting double standards. So our "Status" is a priori considered non-interceptible, but from the analogue "the Northern Fleet must pass"? Are there facilities on the Northern Fleet that can intercept a similar vehicle at the same depths and speeds? Indeed, in order to flush Severodvinsk with a 100-mt charge, it is not at all necessary to deliver it to the very threshold .. The same saome and Severomorsk. Even blown up on the surface at the entrance to the Kola Bay will cover Murmansk, Severomorsk and other places of basing. And what will an underwater explosion do, or rather a wave, even if not at the very entrance to a sufficiently narrow Kola Bay?

    Is our advantage in the Black Sea undeniable? Fear God, Andrew. Look at the fleet of the same Turkey on the Black Sea and what we have in the Black Sea. Which will prevent even the surface carrier of the “Status” analog from passing through the Bosphorus and shooting back as soon as it leaves Turkey’s turvod. Not to mention that, as a surface carrier, he can easily move to the central part of the Black Sea and we can’t do anything to him
    Crimea is really not a floating barge. It is really very difficult for him to miss the RPO. Moreover, the "entrances" to Sevastopol and other targets are located, which is called with an orientation to the west
