Pentagon: war in space - a matter of several years

48
Within a few years, the war in space will begin, and the Americans will seek superiority in outer space, reports RIA News Statement by Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force David Goldfein.




I believe that we will strike from space in a few years. And we (the US Air Force) are a branch of the military, which must lead joint operations in this new disputed territory. This is what the country requires.
Goldfein said at the annual Florida Air Force Symposium.

He stressed that in a short period, Americans need to achieve superiority in outer space.

Goldfein also expressed the view that "to enhance the firepower of the United States, it is necessary to integrate intelligence and communication capabilities in all dimensions: in the air, on land, in the sea, in cyberspace and in space."

In addition, according to him, the US Air Force "requires a new generation of commanders."

As the online publication Space News reported, the US Air Force's budget for space programs this year was $ 7,75 billion, which is 20% higher than in 2017. Next year, it is planned to increase this budget item to $ 8,5 billion.

      Nevertheless, we will live to see the time when the satellites will not fly freely over foreign territories and will immediately go astray.

      Forget satellite communications
      We'll have to launch drones for communication, which will fly only in their spaces

          If it comes to war in space, then the disappearance of entire continents on planet Earth will be very close. For example, before disappearing primarily from the face of the Earth, North America with its USA.

              Ha! We know this. But the Americans (with the collective West) are not sure about this.
              They now have a construction boom there on the construction of comfortable underground bunkers with the survivability of the owners, their servants and guards - right up to 10 years - after a nuclear disaster as a result of a world nuclear war.

    What the hell is going on? Everyone broke off the chain, or what? For whom is he going to strike from space? The "new generation of commanders" are those who are not afraid to burn out in a nuclear firebox? Or burn others? It seems that the time has come to destroy the dollar, as the main currency. Otherwise, everything may end badly.

      hi
      No, not fiction. IMHO, part of a hybrid war - the propaganda part, dust in the eyes, smoke screen in order to divert attention from the real preparation for war here - on earth. For this, armadas of equipment and manpower are being transferred to the European continent, bases are equipped 40 km from the Russian border, launchers with a range of 1500 km (and this is not the limit) are located on the territory of Romania (and hereinafter referred to as Moldova), they suppose to supplant the influence Russia from the territory of Donbass and equip similar launch complexes there (as the odious General B. Rogers said). The Americans have already equipped three bases in Ruin, the Chernobyl dirty zone is also under their control, delivering launchers is a matter of the week, hence the conclusion - do it yourself.

    These few years still need to be lived, which under current Washington policy can become problematic. The American warrior should not forget that there are other space countries that perfectly understand what American dominance in space can lead to. Therefore, do not sit idly by.

    If we take into account the number of military facilities in space, then at the moment the United States is bypassing Russia. To date, the American space group has about 500 satellites. Each year, the United States launches about 30 more satellites, spending up to $ 25 billion a year to maintain this wealth.
    The Russian group, according to the deputy commander of the Space Forces of the Russian Federation for armament, Lieutenant General Oleg Gromov, had in its assets 58 spacecraft, 40 of which solved exclusively military tasks, and 18 were dual-use vehicles.

    Again these tales about the war in space. Neither the United States nor Russia are silent for others in general, for the next decade they will certainly not be able to fight in space because of technological progress has not yet matured. The Pentagon mastered the cut of money by 100%, but with rocket launches they have a little weak. The Americans buy engines from us, their commercial projects in general, how the truck works, the Shuttle program was turned off ........ and what next ??? !!! Again, "Star Wars" have seen enough.

      Well, why, if you take the orbit of our planet, then in the coming decades there is a danger of a new SOI, the technology from that time still made a leap forward and especially in the field of microelectronics. And space for the most part in the USA was given to private owners (the commercial part), and the defense industry remained with the US Air Force. Engines and some of what they buy from us, but look at the number and variety of LVs in the USA in recent years and the percentage of use of our RD-180 in general ....

    In this case, you should not believe everything that modern media broadcast. The US military knows just as well what will be and how. But some farmer from Oklahomshchina, after reading the American media, will be sure that America will remain, but Russia will not. And similarly, the same peasant from the Ryazan region, after reading our media, will be sure that the United States will not, and we will be in chocolate ...

    Well, comrade! You, as they say, started for health, and then turned onto a cheers-patriotic path. They correctly said that neither we nor the Americans are technologically ready for this yet. And then they exchanged money on something that the accuser always emphasizes. On the engines. Can I find out how bad they are with them? Or how do you write a little weak? On average, about 20% of carriers fly on RD brand engines. That is one fifth. And EIGHTY percent on their engines. How weak is this? They, whose engines are weak with the engines, are already driving a methane engine for testing, and we have been saying for 10-15 years that such an engine should be made.
    The shuttle program was turned off, here you are right, and then what? Last year, the Americans launched 29 against 20 of ours. 43 are planning for this year against 23 of ours? Is it your "weak" with them?

    What else do we have? Launches of heavy missiles ("Protons") are practically reduced to zero. Now, those satellites that we launched for others with Protons, the Americans will launch on their Falcons. In the near future - several types of spaceships, both cargo and unmanned (18-19 years). Our "Federation" gradually moved to 2024.

    And about the Star Wars. Of course you shouldn’t make a fit of it, but you shouldn’t sweep it either. What was fiction in the early 80s may not be fiction anywhere in the early 2030s. And we are giggles. Yes, they did not "shmogli" then even come closer to those systems that were voiced. But within the framework of this program, they adopted the communications and control systems that were planned at that time. You think that all these network-centric wars are notions of the second decade of this century. Alas. This is from there, from the Star Wars. They just don’t talk about it. Not as spectacular as orbital lasers ...
