Military Review

The Pentagon talked about the development of their armed forces

28
US forces must be prepared to conduct multi-domain hostilities, and this will make a new defense budget, transmits RIA News Statement by the Director of the Armed Forces for Budget, Major General Paul Chamberlain.




Revisionist powers such as Russia and China, rogue regimes of the DPRK and Iran, along with terrorist organizations, pose a serious threat to American interests. Our regional competitors in the APR and Europe have been exploring the strengths and weaknesses of (armies) for more than ten years. Their modernization efforts are gradually negating our competitive advantages, so this defense project is aimed at ensuring the superiority of the American army,
said Chamberlain, commenting on the draft defense budget for the 2019 year.

He also named the key problems of the American army and said what results it expects from modernization.

The army must be prepared, if necessary, to win a multi-domain war, which requires coordination in the conduct of fire, electronic warfare, attacks in cyberspace and space. In addition, the country's armed forces must be able to strike at the enemy and increase the survivability of their troops in confronting the high-tech adversary,
explained the general.

According to him, the new draft budget will allow the armed forces "to have more destructive power, to be flexible and ready to repel current and upcoming threats."

Chamberlain added that the budget provides for the fight against terrorism and provides funding for counter-terrorism operations.

In his opinion, the modernization of the aircraft should be carried out on 6-ti main areas: "the development of high-precision weapons, the creation of a new generation of combat vehicles and the replacement of the military aircraft fleet with the equipment of the promising Future Vertical Lift project, the improvement of communication systems within the armed forces, the improvement of the air defense and missile defense systems, the increase of the firepower of servicemen.

The general noted in conclusion that modernization efforts would allow the American army to increase technological superiority over its main rivals.

    An anecdote about the Colorado potato beetle ... Like, he ate three hundred hectares of potatoes ... next year we’ll sow five hundred ... let the cursed choke ... It seems they are so carried away with the development of the military budget that it openly threatens their national defense ...

      “possess greater lethal power” - they have a larger military budget than the national income of many countries and are still not slaughter, the appetite comes with food.

      What are you happy about? The war, it will not bypass you either, or are you hoping to present comments to the enemy, if that? So the enemy appreciates loyalty has not yet come, and then only bends down and gives out orders ... Think at your leisure ...

    It is already excessively lethal in combination with lethal politics ... for example, the number of deaths in Iraq ... this is not comparable with any "bloody" dictatorship ... perhaps because of their lethality they surpassed Pol Pot's records ...

    In short, we are preparing for war with RUSSIA and China ... more money ... more military budget ... sooner or later they will tear up the navel.
    Honestly, I didn’t see anything new in the speech of the American general ... another quid.

    win in multi-domain the war
    Is it about houses or about domains? Why not introduce speech into everyday life so that the uglier (not clearer) look. Technological superiority has been improved to the point that the latest ships break down at the first exit from the base, planes are corroded, and air defense does not intercept ...

    But what the American general said can be projected onto any army, in particular the Russian army. Replace only in words the name of the countries and all.
    What, except what he said
    ... added that the budget provides for the fight against terrorism and provides funding for counter-terrorism operations.

    According to him, the modernization of the aircraft should be carried out in 6 main areas: “the development of high-precision weapons, the creation of a new generation of combat vehicles and the replacement of the military aircraft fleet with the equipment of the promising Future Vertical Lift project, the improvement of communication systems within the armed forces, the improvement of air defense and missile defense systems, increasing the firepower of the military. ”

    not consistent with similar aspirations of the armed forces of other countries, in particular Russia and China?
    Don't we need to develop the WTO? And to achieve the degree of use of these weapons at least at the level of regional wars that the Americans waged?
    We do not need a new generation of combat vehicles (Armata, Boomerang, Kurganets)? Or new planes that will replace our existing fleet? For example, the replacement of the SU-25 or TU-95?
    Improving air defense and missile defense systems is not relevant for us? If not, then why create a new, even more expensive system, such as the S-500? Or maybe you still need to? Then it is not clear why the "dreams" of others to do about the same cause laughter and jokes?

    Unfortunately, we will have to think about how to fend off such a threat, and not mock at the "attempts of the Americans"
    The difference is that they have such a budget that they can afford to do everything at once, even if their weapons are in fact 2-3-4 times more expensive than similar Russian models

    The difference is striped to implement their plans only need a printing press to work overtime!
    Someone like that, but we need to shake up our fat belts, and at the same time put up budget-feeding ones somewhere, such as on poles. And even that will only be the beginning of a long journey.
    So all these laughter, laughter - these jokes will not be joyful, perhaps some may express their indignation. Can it be easier to swear so, from the heart, in Russian?

    --------------------------------
    The difference is that money alone doesn’t solve anything. Most of the US military budget, by the way, is not spent on promising weapons, but on maintaining the contingents of its bases and maintaining combat readiness. I mean that there are no new physical principles like nuclear weapons, lasers, etc. Everything that is created requires a large expenditure of energy. Many Americans began to copy from the "backward country" -SSSR. Small spaceplanes of the "bast" system, "breakthrough fighter" F-35 according to the Yak-141 scheme, combat lasers. It’s a little tough for his ideas to introduce artificial intelligence into the net, he still makes mistakes, and he’s far from the human brain. Therefore, they are still on the path of digitalization of everything and everything, plus blatant lies and propaganda. The people of the Earth are striving to make stupid and stupid in order to manage more easily. What about weapons? So far, the money is being spent on upgrading traditional weapons.

    "Such revisionist powers as Russia and China, rogue regimes of the DPRK and Iran ..."
    They like to hang up invented labels with them!
    "along with terrorist organizations ..."
    He forgot to add: and terrorist states, such as the state of Zionists!
    "The army must be ready ..."
    On the left in the photo, the dove is already ready for sure!

    The 7th, the main direction, is the use of the budget, namely, cut.
