Pence: We will seek dominance in space. On Russian engines?

43
The United States will seek military dominance in space, including over Russia and China, reports RIA News statement by the country's vice president Mike Pence.




To deter and defeat the threats associated with the aggressive development of anti-satellite weapons Russia and China, our president (Donald Trump) has ordered the Department of Defense to strengthen our space systems — so that America remains as dominant in space security as here on earth
said Pence, speaking in Colorado Springs at the Space Symposium.

Recall that in December last year, the United States published a new national security strategy. The main focus of the document, as before, is on Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

President Trump said at the time that “Russia and China are trying to challenge American influence, values ​​and wealth,” but Washington “will try to build a great partnership” with these countries. Apparently, the purchase of Russian engines refers specifically to the "great partnership."

              President Trump then stated that "Russia and China are striving to challenge American influence, values ​​and wealth," but Washington will "try to build a great partnership" with these countries. Apparently, the purchase of Russian engines refers specifically to the "great partnership."

              Only not to the "great partnership", but to the "great deception" of their geopolitical adversary
              In Washington, it has long been planned to go around Russia, not just in space, but in space weapons and the creation of the first military bases in space! Washington has already announced its "exclusive" private right to territory on the moon.

              But if someone thinks that Washington is sitting on naive people who are going to enter "paradise" on the supply of space engines from Russia, then he is deeply mistaken. The Pentagon has set a task - and it is being implemented quietly - before the US military-industrial complex to create space engines of independent American production. Therefore, in the years 2,3,4 they will already be in the US arsenal.
              Therefore, the Russian Federation even has something to think about in order to answer the Pentagon to such an American "great partnership" with Russia.

              I would already stop supplying Russian space engines to the Machiavellian globalists in Washington - and urgently!
              But at the same time, the RF Ministry of Defense should remember that the reserve of time for the development of the nearest space by Russia in the military-political plan for parity with the United States will be reduced by about half and generally will not exceed 2 years.
              In any case, Russia with space exploration and with the military confrontation in it with the US needs to hurry thoroughly.

    Of course there will be, both on Russian engines and on Russian oil and for Russian money. And they will not just be, but will achieve superiority and superiority. Already achieved. Because there are leaders in power who are developing their country, and not sending children to Russia to live.

    Alas. Engines paid until 2020. To stop delivery - to earn also a colossal penalty. Engines now keep the plant afloat (we do not use them). Refuse to supply - the plant will very likely receive a furry northern animal

    But at the same time, the RF Ministry of Defense should remember that the reserve of time for the development of the nearest space by Russia in the military-political plan for parity with the United States will be reduced by about half and generally will not exceed 2 years.

    To be honest, I’m even afraid to “pull” about the deadlines. And the point is not even that our space budget is an order of magnitude smaller, the question is strategy. Unfortunately, we do not know how to build real plans for decades to come, that is, for 30-40 years. Each new program sometimes discards what was in the previous one and starts something new. This is especially true of means of excretion. Shuttle flights stopped with the Americans - the "Constellation" program with Ares carriers began. It slowed down - but in parallel, work was begun on other carriers.
    The Americans understand that no matter how strong and rich they are, the state will not pull, as in the 50s and 60s all space programs. And they made a separation. Something was given to private business, something was left to the state (most often costly, basic research), and the conclusion was given to business.
    We are all pulled by "Roskosmos". There are now developments by private companies on ultralight carriers that can put into orbit up to 200-300 kg. The market for such loads is increasing, and spasmodically. In order to bring the missile to launch capabilities, some 10-20 million dollars are needed. But they are not there. The company is trying to spin itself, but alas, not always and not everything works out. As a result, it is possible. what will we lose this segment of the market, because competitors are now intensively building ultra-light carriers

    Quote: NIKNN
    here if we sell RD180 ...

    Even if we don’t sell it. Until recently, about 1/5 of all American carriers, i.e. 20%, were displayed on this engine. the remaining 80 are on their own. For 2018, the Americans have planned 45 launches, of which only 7 will be Atlases. What modification of "Antares" will be launched is not yet known exactly. But no more than two. Again, a maximum of 9 starts and all the same 20%. The rest is on their own. And we all amuse ourselves with the thought that without us they will bend
