Unsuccessful American missile defense test will not affect the supply of anti-missile systems to Japan

33
The last unsuccessful testing of the US missile defense system in Hawaii will not affect the plans for the delivery of American interceptor missiles to Japan. RIA News Pentagon Missile Defense Agency Operational Director Gary Pennett’s statement.




Nothing has changed
Pennett said at a briefing, answering the corresponding question of journalists.

At the beginning of January, the US State Department approved a deal to sell Japan four interceptor missiles for an anti-missile system totaling $ 133,3 million. It is about supplying Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA missiles and their launchers Mk-29 (intended for the destruction of aerial targets, including ballistic missiles and warheads at trans-atmospheric altitudes). The Pentagon also pledged to provide logistic and technical support.

At the end of the same month, the United States Aegis missile defense system (ABM) failed.

She (interceptor missile) did not intercept the target and flew past her,
told Pennett.

The Aegis missile defense system is designed to protect against short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles.

      Trouble ...
      They have no fate at all to defend themselves while they are under the occupation of geldings.
      Japan’s best "friends" in half a century have exterminated them more than the entire Japanese nation has lost in any conflict during its entire existence.

        And as it should be occupied - to buy what the occupier ordered to buy.

            As I have said more than once: the samurai in Japan ended in 1853 with the arrival of an American squadron under the command of Perry in Edo. sad

    Duplicate or what? The news of the purchase of anti-ballistic missiles by Japan, despite the setbacks, was already there!
    The emperor is probably pleased that he is not the monarch of the empire, but only the governor of the province ... The governor decides nothing!

        Hi Roman.
        It is interesting, are the descendants of the samurai not afraid of anything in principle?
        Maybe they know something that is not known to us ... Asians, however, are cunning.!

    Do the Japanese have a choice? There is at least the likelihood of a successful counteraction to the UN missiles. A drowning man grabs a straw. And the Americans are good: earnings + one more platform in the region with a universal rocket platform.

    Dear editors! You at least called the author of such notes so that we know the "heroes of our time." And then in the note frank delirium, and below the discussion of this delirium (without reference to delirium) is started, just in order to discuss

    I quote this RAVE
    We are talking about the supply of Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA missiles and Mk-29 launchers for them (designed to destroy air targets, including ballistic missiles and warheads at atmospheric heights).

    Okay, missile shipments of Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA missiles from Japan. They, together with the Americans, are developing this modification and it would be foolish to assume that they will not install it on their ships.

    But where does the launcher Mk-29 ???? The installation is designed to launch missiles of type RIM-7 Sea Sparrow and for the missile to replace this rocket RIM-165 ESSM. The interception range of the first is 30 km, the second is 50. The height is about 15 km (minimum - 6 meters).
    What kind of interception in the transatmospheric section with these PUs can be discussed? Missile-Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA missile and Mk-29 launcher INCOMPATIBLE

    Below is a photo of this launcher. Incline by the way



    At the end of the same month, the United States Aegis missile defense system missile test failed. She (the interceptor missile) did not intercept the target and flew past her.


    So what? SECOND TEST this rocket. The first - February 7, 2017 was successful. We draw conclusions on the results of one interception. Do we have all anti-aircraft missiles that hit all targets from the first launch, or did you have to finish up for years? Nafig on a pretty decent resource, these BLOW SENSATIONS?
