Military Review

Commissioning of US missile defense in Poland postponed to 2 of the year

23
The commissioning of the SM-3 anti-missile batteries in Poland has been moved from 2018 to 2020. Director of the ABM Agency General Sam Greaves reported about this at the hearings in the US Senate.




The general noted that construction carried out by a local contractor in Poland is slower than expected by the US military. According to him, the reason is that "not enough working and resources were allocated." In addition, the “bad weather in Poland in the last five months” played a negative role.

You have to constantly suspend work because of the rains,
quotes greaves newspaper Look.

He also reported that “one of the Deputy Ministers of Defense (Poland)” took up the problematic issues related to the work of the contractor.

When lawmakers asked whether the general was worried about such a “failure to provide missile defense in Europe,” Greaves said:

Given the current level of threat, it does not bother me.


The agreement between Poland and the United States on the deployment of antimissile systems in the republic was signed in 2008 and entered into force after 3. It was originally planned to equip the base with long-range missiles, guided by a radar in the Czech Republic. However, in the 2010 year, these plans were revised, and Poland would receive only SM-3 medium-range missiles.

    Expensive and not advisable?
    The main thing for them was to push through the project, the deadlines did not matter much. Yes, and focused on other issues. They have enough of the latter, they create for themselves ...

      there is a trade about the concept - "a promise not to expand east"
      we say one thing. partners-- dr vision offer
      We are committed to "MAINTENANCE ABOUT DEFENSE BASES IN EUROPE, AT 100% OF THEIR READY, BEFORE THREAT THREATS TO DEMOCRACIES FROM RUSSIA - THE RUSSIAN FEDERALS AND WILL BE INTERESTED NOT TO BE JOINED"
      and for other types of military threats, a compromise will be found - not within 91

    When asked by lawmakers if the general is not concerned about such a “failure to ensure missile defense in Europe,” Greaves replied: Given the current level of threat, this does not bother me.. He’s lying, "gray gelding", how to "drink to give" sawing money with "one of the deputy ministers of defense (Poland)." yes

    There is a good Russian proverb - "let the goat into the garden." The local contractor thinks more about how you can’t carry more money past your pocket. As for the weather ... Maybe it slowed down the construction (although as they say, a bad dancer .... they interfere). But he either did not dare to talk about the main thing, or the publication does not mention it. In Poland, there should be a new interceptor missile Standart SM-3 Block 2A, instead of Standart SM-3 Block 1B, which is in Romania. And with this interceptor they have a “plug”. Of the EMNIP three trials - two failure.

      This was all under the former Minister of Defense, but he had worries, oooh! But with the brains be-eee!
      The Minister was changed, but his work lives on!
      However, we have something to regret, let the Polish-Lithuanian countries practice on the striped!

    Yes, in principle, nothing surprising - construction projects are being dragged out everywhere, I don’t think there is anything political here. Just an object is complex. Moreover, the Poles are building it ... and there are rocket mines and radars, .... and around there are a lot of Poles with gas cylinders, concrete mixers and an incomprehensible language .... of course the controlling American engineers are reinsured. Naturally.

    Has the Jackal decided to slow down? And what if you have to put up the wrong missile defense system? Suddenly, again - the Polish People’s Republic?

    But did the rain interfere? I think they thought hard about its feasibility.

      "But did the rain interfere? I think they thought hard about its expediency."

      Just yesterday, on a military review, the view was expressed that in the event of shelling Syria, it was necessary to hit missile defense bases in Poland and Romania. It turns out, judging by the speed of the Pentagon’s reaction, they’re really afraid of it, and more than anything else.

    According to him, Faberge interferes. They want too much - everything is everywhere, but the appetite is growing. So the allocated amount, taking into account the intended use, for military expenses (700 billion, like that), is clearly not enough.

    The Yankees apparently realized the futility of this missile defense system, and the Poles realized that they were becoming an excellent target for us ..
