Military Review

The US Navy called the main opponents of America

44
The US military command presented an updated concept of the US National Security Strategy. The concept highlighted several points that denote the “framework” of US military policy primarily in the field of the Navy.


The US Navy called the main opponents of America


First item identifies countries that Washington perceived as the main opponents of America. Sensations did not happen - the main opponents remained the same. This is Russia and China. And it is said about this quite openly.

Admiral John Richardson, Commander of Naval Operations, who introduced the concept, stated:
China and Russia are seeking to revise the norms of the entire international system on more favorable terms. In some areas, the competitive advantage of the United States has not simply declined against the background of their activities, but has disappeared altogether.


Second point concerns specific development issues for the US Navy. In particular, it is indicated that incidents with the death of military personnel and damage to warships not participating in combat operations are unacceptable.

The document reports on the need to implement contracts for the construction of a large frigate and an unmanned surface ship for the US Navy. Concretized questions of the action program called "Air domination of the new generation," which should be implemented by 2030 year. In it, it is primarily about replacing the F / A-18 Super Hornet aircraft with new-generation aircraft.

Third point - naval education. Earlier in the United States stated that there is a significant shortage of reservists seamen in the event of a large-scale military conflict. In this regard, it is proposed to conduct specialized course training for reservists at military schools in order to maintain their naval skills at the proper level. Also reported on the nature of the training of naval officers in the existing schools of the Navy segment.

Fourth point - change in logistics. It was noted that the logistic foundations should be subject to change, since they largely ceased to meet modern challenges. The main stated goal is that the fleet must act on a truly global scale.

James Holmes, professor of strategy at the Naval College of the United States Naval Forces, while commenting on the concept, said that he compared it with the strategy of 2007 of the year. According to him, the strategy-2007 was of a "peaceful nature", provided for military cooperation with different countries. The current situation, he says, is “stunning”.

James Holmes:
Against the background of many platitudes, the document says that China is our adversary. Back in 2007, the word “China” was not in our strategy at all. This suggests that we are seriously behind and now we want to catch up.

            The Americans do not have enough money and resources to maintain the fighting efficiency of the US Navy and the ILC.
            Representative of the American Audit Chamber John Pendleton during a Senate hearing said that the combat readiness of the Navy and the US Marine Corps does not reach 80%. Previously, the Pentagon set such a bar.
            Problems with financing the army, in particular with aviation, difficulties with personnel and lack of resources prevented the fulfillment of the “norm”. The official explained that in the US army the lion's share of combat aircraft of the Navy and ILCs are outdated, but it is difficult to upgrade the machines because of difficulties with maintenance and supply. Starting from fiscal year 2011, the level of aircraft readiness for flights has been steadily declining. Due to the fact that the United States is involved in military operations around the world, the need to repair aircraft and other equipment has increased, but the time for engineering work has been reduced. In addition, it is difficult to find money to maintain the equipment in good condition.
            For an aging fleet of the US Navy - a serious problem. The average age of F / A-18A-D Hornet carrier-based fighter-bomber aircraft deployed on American aircraft carriers is 26 years old, the AV-8B Harrier vertical take-off attack aircraft is 21 years old, the C-2A Greyhound carrier-based tactical transport aircraft is 29 years old, and these aircraft should serve until the 2030s. What is also causing concern is the reduction in the production of components for these aircraft. Admiral William Moran said in the Senate that for F / A-18E / F aircraft, the coefficient of readiness for completing a flight mission does not exceed 66%. According to Pendleton, the United States will not be able to achieve a combat readiness of 80% at the current level of problems. To all problems with the equipment, John Pendleton also added a lack of repair technicians who service the aircraft. In addition, there are not enough military pilots. All specialists go into the civilian sphere, since there they pay more wages ....

                They will be afraid, as before .. Until they see the dead carcass of this lion .. as we understand, this is unlikely to come to that.

                But supporters of the AUG should think about it - even the United States is hard to drag such a cart ... The Chinese are puffing with aircraft carriers - as long as there is money, how it will end, but it will end - all these aircraft carriers are weights on the body of the state .. and times change - aircraft carriers leave into history, and right now ...

                      1. Plow is one thing. But the air cover of the forces in the DMZ and the Ocean zone is quite another ... Without air cover - 41 year, Eastern Front ... (Infantry, do you hear what it is about !?)
                      2. The gravedigger of "bridgeodonts" will be AvGZPKR and submarines with GZPKR ... as well as submarines with long-range heavy TO and RT. But so far with this we are not particularly dense, unfortunately.
                      So, we need new Marinesko and Safonovs (I don’t remember about Prien - a Nazi, but a DEFLINER !!!)

                Whatever the general condition of the stripes was, everyone really understands that they can concentrate on a couple of the right directions and want to do almost everything they want .... and no one can really stop them, unless they show concern.
                Just such is the reality of today's world! I really hope that the reality will change, but for this, one of the players AGAINST needs to become very stronger or to concentrate any small shadows, unite.
                Such is la la vie and tomorrow, maybe the day after tomorrow, nothing will fundamentally change.
                This I "croak", I will be glad to be wrong, BUT .........

    China and Russia seek to revise the norms of the entire international system on more favorable terms for themselves
    Admiral, but don't the United States do the same? Or conditions favorable for the country can be provided only to Americans? The United States, through its own actions, has created enemies for itself, which were such even before that, but did not formally appear in American doctrines, but now have come to their senses.

    It should be added here that "China and Russia are focused on hypersonic weapons, because their speed, height and maneuverability can hit most missile defense systems, weapons can also be used to improve the capabilities of conventional and long-range nuclear weapons.
