Military Review

Mattis commented on the message of Vladimir Putin

51
The last part of the report of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin devoted to new weapons disappointed the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, reports RIA News.




I watched President Putin’s speech, and, like many of us, I focused on the last third (on new Russian weapons). The first two thirds are clearly about internal problems, as well as ... about the possibilities to reduce tensions between NATO countries, Western countries ... and the Russian Federation,
said Mattis.

The third part of the message disappointed the US Secretary of Defense. According to him, “the weapons that Putin presented are still being developed and do not change the balance of forces so far.”

I get paid to make strategic assessments ... I would say that I have not seen any changes in Russia's military potential, and even all the systems that (Putin) says are still a few years old,
he noted.

Recall Putin, in his address to the Federal Assembly 1 March, presented the newest types of Russian weapons, unparalleled in the world. They talked about the Sarmat missile system, underwater UAVs, a nuclear-powered cruise missile, the Dagger aircraft missile system, and laser and hypersonic weapons.

Later, a group of senators appealed to Secretary of State Tillerson to begin a dialogue with Moscow in order to “renew the START-3 treaty” and “increase transparency in the development of non-strategic nuclear weapons.”

        Overslept, and ashamed to admit. They will make a mine - "ala-uniquetogonet."
        With the "Caliber" the same situation was, have not yet been used. I hope that there will be no reason for the use of new samples.

          So, Caliber was no secret. It was not a surprise. It is actually catching up. That is, now Russia has its own Ax. True, there are still few carriers (on SPM - one ground-attack Burke press can be projected) and there are no universal launchers.

          About hypersound. The Americans have an official record - 11 850km / 9,6M installed and registered in 2004 year on the X-43. In horizontal flight.

          That is, they have technology, protection.

          Also, do not forget the HTV-2 - which just acts on the principle that the animation of the Vanguard - is displayed on the Minotaur and plans to fly from there on a controlled flight. First flight 10 year (partially successful). The second in 11 - but an epic fail. After the program was transformed into a new device on stage 3. And while it’s quiet.

          Plus, they have quite a working X-51.

          Why sarcasm? all of him, in principle, correctly says, this weapon is essentially at different stages of production. And in general, do not be flattered that pin.dos are not aware of our developments, they all know, in our era of cellular, etc.

            This is not sarcasm - a statement. Some units are already in service. Some are being finalized. And they are in the US. But they don’t know what to do. Caliber, they thought that they did not fly far, but still ... And with his statements, the State Department reassures the allies. Like - they are ahead, buy from them.

            It’s just that we have such a tradition in Syria that all the time to announce our victories a little ahead of time. And so everything is true.
            I think it’s not worth treating the words of the head of the Pentagon condescendingly, he has many opportunities to learn the truth more than everyone else. It may well be that he is really paid for a reason.

        Another thing is noteworthy. When it comes to their weapons, they yell, "everything has disappeared, overslept, give us money. And when talking about negotiations with Moscow, they say that the Russians are bluffing."

        And if you dig even a little deeper, then from 12 just every year in the message they lower the mortgage rate to 7%. Now for another 6 years they’ll twist the cartoon 10 years ago and again lower mortgage rates, living standards and birth rates. Or me alone it seemed that at VO there was an article about a demographic pit not so long ago, but in the message of the sphs we had a turning point and are we in plus? belay

            In general, in my comment, it was about our country. Do you think that even if Putin was bluffing, the USA would strike at us? In the presence of nuclear weapons is very unlikely. And as for Syria ... what does Syria have to do with it? If the United States wants to really strike in Syria, then no one will stop them, Israel will periodically work out attacks on Syria, Turkey, like the United States, by the way, occupied part of Syria, and nothing .... some arrange genocide of a certain part of the population, others set up and prepare military bases militants. Therefore, if Trump decides to strike Kyrgyzstan again in Syria, or worse starts a ground operation against the SAA, I don’t think that someone will stop them. Ours for the sake of Syria will not go to a military conflict with another country.

    In fact, he is right. At the moment, those weapons that were presented by the GDP are not in service, and are either in the final stages of development or at some other stage .... until these weapons go into production, this time and business is not here for a couple of months.

        Zircon has not yet been adopted, and so far there are no carriers of hypersonic anti-ship missiles, but the dagger has been adopted .... here you can only rejoice at our military-industrial complex and the army as a whole. Well, about the value of the AOG, they were reset, perhaps, although the concept of its application vryatli will be revised due to the development of our weapons ... they will rather try to come up with means to counter this threat. And who knows ... in the world (without taking our latest developments) there were no invulnerable weapons, there was always the opportunity to neutralize such weapons or to do the same to create parity (like nuclear weapons, for example), but here the US head will certainly have to be smashed over a solution to such a problem.

      You're strange. To begin with, they will collect the maximum information. Actually it’s written in plain text - “enhancing transparency in the development of non-strategic nuclear weapons”.

      Then they check with their own and decide. If ahead of the 3-5 years. Then they can freeze a little through the contract, and then when their Wunderwaffles come up to readiness to withdraw from the contract, as they have already done more than once, as not meeting the interests of the USA.

      If approximately +/- or the USA is ahead, then there is nothing to say, one more portion of sanctions and that’s all.

    What can I say, Putin allowed the Pentagon, so Mattis is disappointed. Surely he was satisfied with the scam. Now, if in the third part of Putin’s appeal was about how we lagged behind the United States in armaments, then Mattis would be fascinated by this. About a few years before the appearance of these types of weapons - this is an excuse for the Senate.

    The main thing is not words, but deeds. But things are like this: a talkative dog before the message to Putin without measure, put his tongue in the opera for a third of a month: he worried, delved into it ... In addition, the next day, two US destroyers left the Black Sea. So the reactions at the level of affairs are correct. And the current nonsense is not important.

    But there is no intelligible assessment. The CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and he, apparently, is an informed person, noted that in the speech of the Russian president he was “literally not surprised at all” and the United States was required to provide an “adequate answer.” And, presumably, he receives his salary in vain.

    It seems that the whole arrogant, aggressive west now lives HOPE that this weapon is not. It seems to the West this is the only way to restrain one's own fear bordering on panic. As there, Tryndets crept imperceptibly.
