What is the most "nightmarish" of Russian weapons. National Interest is trying to figure it out again

42
If the phrase “the worst nightmare for NATO (US)” appears in the material, then this is a new article in the American edition of The National Interest. And if you spend a little excursion into history NI’s publications, the “Caliber” Russian cruise missiles, Russian nuclear submarines, Russian anti-aircraft missiles C-300 and C-400, the Russian nuclear triad, which submarine cruisers enter, were also the “worst nightmares for NATO”, were also " Dagger, Avangard, Sarmat, Iskander, and others. And the authors of NI should no longer be on the list of weapons that could be equated to nightmarish.


What is the most "nightmarish" of Russian weapons. National Interest is trying to figure it out again


But the author The National Interest Charlie Gao still found an option in his notebook weaponswhich can be called not just a nightmare, but “worst nightmare in reality».

Such weapons, according to Gao, are anti-tank missile systems with different variants of ammunition.

From the article in National International:
Russia, it seems, is in the leading positions in thermobaric and high-explosive fragmentation ammunition for anti-tank complexes. Almost every ATGM in Russia has its own set of equipment - according to the purpose of its application.


Charlie Gao tells readers that Russia is using anti-tank missiles in Syria, using attack helicopters.

The American author reports on the effectiveness of anti-tank missile systems "Kornet", which can be used not only against armored vehicles, but also against the fortified positions of the enemy, as well as against the accumulations of his manpower.

It now remains to find out that for NATO it is more nightmarish from the list of Russian weapons, which NI published recently in its articles.

        It would be more interesting for us to find out about NATO's nightmares that our armed forces are nightmares. There will be a lineup not small, starting from Javelin to Aegis with SM-3 and so on ...

        Authors of articles about NI stubbornly continue to call it American ... although it’s enough just to glance at the same Wikipedia, for example, to understand calling American NI is like saying that Russia is also an American company ... And patriots on the site with the same enviable persistence continues to ignore all this.
        You know what, and go on and on and on so stupidly, seriously, against your background, I am increasingly starting to feel like some sort of higher link in evolution already hi

          And what do we read in Pedivikia? And here is what:
          'National Interest' ('NI', 'National Interest') - an American analytical publication on military-political issues with a print magazine published twice a month and the popular website NationalInterest.org

          I will not quote the entire history of NI, I will limit myself to this:
          The publication was founded in 1985 by the famous expert Irving Kristol. The publication has a wide expert council led by Henry Kissinger

          So quit you defend this clowning. Well, or run to the cash desk of the State Department for a bonus.

            What we are cunning ... Why enter into a dispute in which you know for sure that you will lose?
            In 2001, the then-American magazine, which had almost gone bankrupt, bought for nothing the "center of national interests" founded by Dmitry Simes (the very one that doesn’t leave the VGTRK channel), which he commands to this day. Since then, he is no longer an American. Since then, 99% of the entire 5th material of the magazine is devoted exclusively to Russia, and is sent to the journal daily (literally, often even several times a day) in all patriotic forums and propaganda broadcasts on TV. Like, look what our enemies think about us ... About how they are afraid of us ... About how even they praise our weapons and so on ... hi

              Where to me to you. wink If Dmitry Simes was already mentioned, then it was necessary to spread it:
              Since July 2013, the editor-in-chief of the magazine is Jacob Heilbrunn.
              The Advisory Board is led by the honorary chairman of the magazine, Henry Kissinger.
              Dimitri Simes and Paul J. Saunders represent the position from the Associated Press.
              Among the members of the expert council of the magazine are also Morton Abramowitz, Graham Allison, John Mirseimer and Dov Zackheim.

              Editors and reviewers of the materials are Andrew J. Basevich, Jan Bremmer, Ted Galen Carpenter, Bruce Hoffman, Andrew Kohut, Paul R. Pillar, Milton Ezrati, Kenneth Pollack, Anatole Lieven, James Schlesinger, Nicholas Gvozdev, Marjorie Romaine-Sanabria and Ivan Pli .

With the same success, you can write out the composition of the Republic of Tatarstan (Russia), there will be practically no Russian names and surnames.

              That's what I knew !!! Chrysler is also not American !!! Italian! he belongs to Fiat.
              And Volvo, with SAAB - also "good Chinese cars."
              And, excuse me, Harley, who is Davidson, who will he be after moving to Europe? It will belong to the Americans, it will be located in Europe ...
              Still interesting, here at VO many argue that the RD180 engine is American! Type of something there when for some reason they sold PW and since then they own it.
              But for some reason, again, they pay money to Russians ...

    Russia, it seems, is in the leading positions in thermobaric and high-explosive fragmentation ammunition for anti-tank complexes. Almost every ATGM in Russia has its own set of equipment - according to the purpose of its application.

    “We have several anti-tank systems that are currently being delivered to the army — these are the Chrysanthemum, Cornet, and also the Assault and Attack aircraft-based systems. These tools fully meet all modern requirements, but they have range limitations, and there is also an important circumstance that they need an operator for a shot, ”says Leonkov.
    Leonkov notes that because of this, the operator is forced to lead the missile after the shot, “highlighting” it during the flight to the target, which can be considered a drawback if we compare our systems with the same Javelin ATGM.
