Military Review

Yesterday's “Wunderwaffe” of America

57
The outcome of a possible military duel between Russia and the United States in Syria depends not only on the fate of this country, but also on the future of all mankind.




I had only to pay attention to that factthat, despite the extreme militaristic hysteria of the US leadership, there is not a single American aircraft carrier in the 5 radius thousands of miles from Syria, which casts doubt on the trump quality of Trump's military ambitions and announced that they were sending a carrier-based strike group to the Mediterranean Sea with "harry truman".

This is, of course, a joke. But so it was. Thus, they are still trying to identify something like a military threat. True, in all American military textbooks it is written in black and white that one aircraft carrier is suitable only for displaying the flag, but not for war. And for a little bit of a serious military operation, they need at least three, and even better, six. So I don’t leave my doubts about Trump’s real readiness to cross the military Rubicon.

However, on the "VO" I am prompted by some experts on the question that this is, they say, a somewhat one-sided view of the problem. As for the Americans, they say, there are a lot of things on land too. So a strike on Syria can be inflicted even in the absence of a decent naval group. Here, for example, is:

Shura Sailors (Alexander)
From the sea may not have to expect (!?). And what happens at military bases nearby Syria? What forces are collected, what are the combat capabilities of these forces. Do not forget about the allies of the United States in the region. And that in stories After the Second World War, there was not a single case of military attack on any of the coastal foreign countries without the involvement of major US naval forces, especially attack aircraft carriers, yet does not mean anything.


Well, the question is quite legitimate and requires an exhaustive answer. Indeed, what is the author so fixated on the US Navy, when the Yankees can hit Syria directly from the surrounding territories?

I answer. Maybe they can. That's just unlikely to be decided. Here’s what a hitch is looming ... A strike from the sea, and not even deck aircraft aviationand exclusively Tomahawk cruise missiles - a favorite type of American military sport. Guess once - why? Right! Because this species is the safest. The maximum that they risk at the same time is a waste of a certain number of cruise missiles.

The American elite is most worried about the flow of coffins under the stars and stripes. And since such a strike option completely eliminates them, then, as a rule, they prefer it.

So! A strike from the land will not be so painless for Americans. In any case, the main role in it will be played by manned military aircraft. For the simple reason that the shock rocket weapons There are practically no land bases with a range of at least several hundred kilometers in the American army. It did not fit somehow into the Pentagon concept of aerospace war. And the loss of aviation during a massive strike will be very significant. Even though they will try to launch their cruise missiles without entering the enemy’s air defense zone.

However, this concept, the “impact zone”, has become very stretchable in modern times and may turn out to be much wider than the borders of the attacked country. Especially considering the presence of long-range air defense fighters on the defensive side with air-to-air missiles flying hundreds of kilometers more.

And this is just what concerns the use of strategic aviation. Tactical air groups of the United States and its allies will be forced to act in conditions of maximum anti-aircraft "heat" and their losses will be guaranteed high.

And this is exactly what the gentlemen from Washington really do not like, who do not at all want to be responsible for the accelerated burning of the myth of the invincibility of the US Air Force in the sky over Syria.

In general, something tells me that this dubious option, a strike from land airfields, they will not give their "good". For the risk is too great. Speech in this case, of course, is not about the pilots, they wanted to spit on them. But about the precious reputation of the Washington bosses themselves. And with this they do not like to joke.

So it turns out that nothing really acceptable, except pulling up fleet and blow all the same "Tomahawks", they have no soul. And in order to prevent another shameful Shairat from happening, over which the whole world made fun of the bombing, the Americans really need to pull something else apart from a couple of destroyers on duty. Already Truman with an escort was sent there. And they are unlikely to stop there. But all this takes time. Two weeks at least, but in a good month.

That in itself is very significant. Since the same Russia during this time can literally stuff Syria with its most advanced air defense / missile defense and electronic warfare systems in the world. Which is already there a lot.

After that, with the trump card of the American military strategy, thereby supposedly an irresistible massive strike of the "Tomahawks", there can be complete ill luck.

After all, it is still not clear to the curious world community where the good half of the American Toporovs, launched at Shairat air base a year ago, have gone. After all, they obviously did not fly there, if this base in a couple of days earned as usual.

The question is not idle. The fact is that the time of the world-historic victories of America with the help of its winged "vundervaffe" is somewhere far behind. It was good for them to hammer the same Yugoslavia or Iraq with Tomahawks in those antediluvian times when there was practically no effective antidote against them.

Since then, world progress, to the chagrin of the Pentagon generals, has gone far ahead. And the "Tomahawks" as they were "axes" remained. Only now people specially trained to deal with them and computer programs read in this “miracle weapon”, as in an open book. And after reading, knock them down without pity and without an account. About the way it was in Shairat. And it can happen again on a larger scale if Trump isn’t joking.

The Russian air defense system, deployed in Syria, is ideally suited to effectively repel a massive attack by cruise missiles on such a relatively small country. And she will have no reason not to demonstrate her enviable capabilities to the aggressor.

Thus, this once most comfortable and not burdensome for the USA type of warfare this time can give a very strong misfire. So strong that even the possible bloody consequences of the massive use of manned aircraft for the United States will fade before it. Because in this case not only some unpleasant blood loss can happen, but something much more terrible for America. Namely, the fact that its military power in the eyes of the whole world will break its teeth about the even more formidable military force of Russia.

It is precisely at this point that the main intrigue of the current confrontation in Syria lies. Because this is not even about this country itself, but about the possibility of a collision between two military strategies and technologies of warfare. And it depends very much on who gets out of this fight as a winner. The US defeat, which will become apparent if its traditional military trump card (attack by cruise missiles from the sea) fails, will have the most far-reaching consequences for the global geopolitical situation.

And America simply cannot tolerate it. Even if the incredible happens and all the "Tomahawks" achieve their goals, it will be just a hundred or two ordinary, and not the biggest bombs. As for their notorious precision, they also figured out how to deal with it in Yugoslavia - just to remove people and, if possible, equipment away from buildings that could become targets. I myself saw the broken Tomahawk building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Belgrade, which was empty at the time of the strike. Already somehow it was necessary to write that during the Second World War the same Americans dropped thousands of approximately the same TNT bombs on German cities in one day. But it almost did not wag the war.

Moreover, this time all the “Tomahawks” will not reach the targets exactly. It is unlikely that even half will reach. And this will mean only one thing: finita la comedia! Contactless war for America will end, but in contact it has no more chances than others.

From this point on, it will become clear to all that the American "king" is absolutely naked and can no longer confirm his global ambitions with convincing military force. And it will become quite obvious that any country capable of building a reliable air defense / missile defense system, at least with the help of Russia itself, will receive an impenetrable America trump card. And he will be able to talk with Washington without regard to his decrepit military fist. And this, if you will, is a genuine geopolitical revolution on a global scale. Because the current American global hegemony rests only on force. Which is regularly confirmed by indicative executions in relation to the most obstinate.

So, if in Syria it really comes down to a direct clarification of relations between the Russian Federation and the United States, then Russia will defend not only itself and Syria, but the rest of the world, which really needs an effective remedy for American global expansion.

And although the stakes are very high, the aggressor has never been so vulnerable, and the defending side was not so well prepared to repel an enemy strike. It is possible that in this lies the providence of providence, who appointed the change in the course of history precisely on the land from which this story had once begun.

          It’s hard to say anything about the aircraft carrier, since while there aren’t all the ships around it to ensure its safety, it’s really unlikely to be substituted.
          But here is the author’s opinion that from the land of the United States there is no chance of luck for some reason they do not convince me. Why, for example, not from a US base, but from bases in Kuwait or KSA officially belonging to these countries, launch missiles in the direction of Russian bases, and receive an answer to arrange a universal howl of Western and Arab media about the treacherous attack of Russia on defenseless Arabs and their world shrines. The world jihad of the faithful Muslims will be fully ensured, and the Anglo-Saxons will stand aside with a sense of accomplishment and rub their hands in pleasure.

        Serious for Trump is now brewing scandal with a porn actress
        FBI officers searched the office of lawyer Michael Cohen, who has been working with US President Donald Trump for many years.

        During the search, documents were confiscated, including Cohen’s correspondence with Trump and documents regarding payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
        According to American media reports, among the seized documents were papers relating to payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

        Daniels claims that she had an intimate relationship with Donald Trump, who at that time was married.

        In mid-February, Cohen admitted that out of his pocket he paid a pornographic star $ 130 in 2016, a few days before the election.

        Trump himself denies the allegations of treason. He also stated that he did not know anything about Cohen Stormy Daniels payouts.


        That's really serious, Trump even canceled his visit to Latin America, and here we are talking about some kind of aircraft carriers. It is no coincidence that the Darkest is calm as a boa constrictor; it is not February 2014, when it really smelled of fried.
        Trump was right when he said that the strike on Syria should have been delivered in 2013. Now nothing has changed in the strategic plan, it’s too late to drink Borjomi, as they say ... And all this show is necessary to cover the impending scandal Monica Gate 2.0, which together with the prosecutor’s investigation, Mueller threatens Trump with impeachment,

      So, the proletarian of the information industry, an ordinary news provider, is usually a person with a brain dislocated, as if in a fever.

      It is not surprising, because the news business requires haste: to know the fastest of all, most likely to inform, to interpret earlier than all.

      The excitement of informants is conveyed by the informants. Excited, their own excitement often seems to be a thought process and replaces it. Hence the ousting from everyday life of durable goods such as “beliefs” and “principles” with one-time “opinions”. Hence the complete bankruptcy of forecasts, which, however, does not bother anyone. This is the price for the speed and freshness of the news. Few silence of fate muffled by the background media noise can be heard. Few people are interested in the fact that there is also slow, massive news coming not from the surface of life, but from its depths. From where geopolitical structures and historical eras move and collide. Belatedly, their meanings reach us. But it's never too late to get to know them.

    Comparing with Korea is simply incorrect, or rather stupid. For there is no war there and the Armed Forces are in perfect order on the territory there are no active gangs. The picture in Syria is completely different.
    Missile cruiser, Xnumxemintsev plus an unknown number of submarines. This is a volley from at least 6 KR. And cannon fodder is abundant. And the main thing in the first strike is the disabling of air defense. And the second wave will go aviation. Finish off the leftovers. Everything is like in Iraq.
    We can put a hundred "Buk", "Shell", etc. The question is not in quantity, but in who is fighting on it. In Soviet times, a large number of their officers studied in the Union. And at the same time, a huge number of our officers were in their units (air defense and aviation, almost the second set, as advisers and repair specialists, he himself was in 95). Are you sure that now, in the field, they will be able to master a more complex technique than before, while studying at VU.
    Calculation of amers is quite correct. After applying a massive RBU from different directions, the barmaley will go into battle, as it has happened more than once. At the VO, it has already flashed that parts of the SAA are dispersed and go under the protection of our air defense.
    But the most important is the if keyword. If ours decide to knock down the CD first, and then deal with the answer. Everything is tied to it.

      Sorry, you're pretending or don't understand? After hitting OUR air defense and other parts, even if anti-ship systems are destroyed - where to put our ships, what will they also sink, and submarines? Now let’s imagine that the mattresses “came up comprehensively” - they dealt a massive blow to us, to ships, to bases, to planes and helicopters - these are several thousand dead Russian citizens am am . What do you think the Leader of Russia should do? As for me and my hope that both most citizens are wiping the United States, or at least England from the face of the earth, bombing ALL US bases in the EU, delivering a nuclear strike to their bases in Qatar, saudks (they are not a pity). bully
      For if Putin "swallows" such our losses - he will not stay in the Kremlin until the end of this year, believe the people are "screwed" into the war, I suspect that the Army is also ready to fight to the death. But they will no longer forgive any "strategic retreats". Here, even the liberals will not need to force anything, and they will not listen to them, but Putin will be swept away, simply for the Treason of Russia. negative

        And where did you get the idea that the strikes will be on our ships and bases .. I did write about this. Or all of Syria is studded with our military facilities. Destroy the Syrian. But in the case of our response, the opposing side with a "sense of deep satisfaction" will announce Russia's aggression against NATO. The question now is what would make us guilty of unleashing a world war. As in 41.
        And you seriously think that our two frigates will be able to confront the combined NATO fleet in the Mediterranean. Do not forget, there the Turks will catch up .. our group in Syria itself is small enough, and without supplies it is actually not combat-ready. The question is, how much is the mat. resources.

    Dear Yuri, do you not consider the situation in which America will act “mirror-like” to our VKS? In other words, they will try to “bomb” strongholds and areas of deployment of Assad’s troops, or to do so in breakthrough areas. And "on the ground" go barmaley. Here it will take time to coordinate through informal channels, but they just have time before the ACG approach and the necessary logistics operations. What is your opinion?

    at first it would be nice to shoot down 8, not 5 out of 8 Israeli (supposedly) missiles, and not complain about an irresistible impact, and not celebrate the victory over the United States, not yet in the outbreak of war. It seems to me that we are not only trying to reassure ourselves with such articles, but we are fooling, and then we begin to believe in it. But you do not need to do anything !! We are the best, and if we do not always win, then this is an accident, and our promises and warnings were not understood, we said ..... etc.

    There, information on this episode is still inconsistent so far. We can only say for sure that ours didn’t work on them. The Syrians worked, again, was it the "S-75" or the "Shell"? And in general, did they try to bring them down? After all, Israel could strike at undisguised targets, since there are enough of them there. There are no answers, but this leads to certain conclusions.

      "According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, 8 out of 5 missiles were intercepted. Some of them chalked up S-125 calculations. Others destroyed the Buk-M2E deployed near Homs. Currently, Syria has received 12 S-125 complexes modernized by Russia , which received the designation "Pechora-2M. Thanks to the widespread adoption of digital technology, the combat potential of the air defense system came close to modern standards. A thermal imaging channel was introduced for covert detection of targets." The site is very serious - Russian weapons

    they will try to launch their cruise missiles without entering the enemy’s air defense zone.

    In my amateurish opinion, the range of use of on-board weapons of short-range letaki cannot exceed the range of the radar equipment of aircraft of the Avax system (AWACS).
    Shooting under current conditions focusing only on GPS data is not worth it, since it is very likely that they will be drowned out by Russian electronic warfare equipment.
    In addition, the observer / target designator itself also needs to be covered and now the missile launch line has approached a distance of 200-250 km, which is already within reach even for the S-125 complexes, not to mention the S-300/400.
    This line can still be “pushed aside” by fighter patrols from the Khmeimim base.
    Therefore, with a high probability, in my amateurish opinion, the bombing of the Kyrgyz Republic will not bring significant benefits. But civilians may well suffer. sad

          But this:

          - all the same, of course, wrong. Cruise missiles of the "striped" letak fly 2.5 thousand km. - not for any 200. Methods of their guidance - a separate science.

    "The Russian air defense system deployed in Syria is ideal for effectively repelling a massive attack with cruise missiles."
    They did not boast about going to the army ........ Another hat-taker.

    Well, Trump recently pounded in front of North Korea too, puffed up his cheeks menacingly, assured everyone - they say, right now, now I’m wretched! .. And how many Ameri aircraft carriers were spinning around - two, three? Well, there’s direct anger, furious rage and powerful power, and so on. So what? He puffed up for a week and was quietly blown away ... And even the “gray cardinal” Ivanka didn’t move her dad to a “strike of justice” with another hysteria ...
    Something I see in Syria is a very similar scenario ...

    An author who writes on such topics would need to know how the 1991 Desert Storm in Kuwait began. The aircraft carriers drove the mattresses, tried to bomb Saddam, received an assault from his air defense and aviation and requested that planes take off and land on land to land bases in the region. And only after they gathered a group at the ground airfields of several hundred aircraft, their business went. Therefore, the presence or absence of an aircraft carrier could talk about something only if the mattresses were going to “educate” some Grenada (on which, incidentally, they also got their ears, having lost half of the Delta and several helicopters in battles with a company of Cubans and local Papuans , and the Cubans with almost no loss retreated to their embassy from which they subsequently safely returned to their homeland).
    I feel that this text will also be counted as an "insult to the author of the article" :-)
