Pentagon requests to finance the acquisition of thousands of guided missiles 10


According to the portal, the military proposes to include in the draft budget for the 2020 financial year the costs of acquiring 10 193 guided missiles used by multiple launch rocket systems.

It is noted that this is 26% more than this year (ordered 8101 rocket) and 47% more than in 2018 year (ordered 6 936 missiles).

The missiles are designed to “neutralize or suppress the enemy’s field artillery and air defense systems,” and budgets will cost about $ 1,4 billion.

According to the publication, the sharp increase in expenses for increasing the guided missile arsenal is associated with the experience of military operations in Iraq and Syria "after the relative defeat of the IS group (banned in the Russian Federation)", as well as with increased competition from the "great powers" - Russia and China.

The resource recalls that in early March, the US Department of Defense released a review of the defense budget for the 2020 fiscal year, which states that priority in the modernization of the ground forces will be given to developing the capabilities of rocket artillery, as well as increasing the firing range and the striking effect on the enemy of barrel artillery for "superiority" at all levels. "

And on Friday it became known that in the United States began the production of components for the production of missiles prohibited by the INF Treaty. This year, the US command plans to test two types of medium-range missiles.

    Still dreaming of a preemptive strike to put an end to these impudent Russians once and for all? Fools, we just need this .. Zhdems, we do not start wars, We end them by hoisting our flag in the salt of the defeated enemy .. Remember this "gentlemen" !!! soldier

      Soviet ... That's right. But pay attention to the method of using force against us - long-range guided MLRS ammunition. In advance, you need to look for and find an "antidote" to this approach ... Both air defense and "counter-battery" means of countering enemy MLRS and others, including patrolling shock UAVs ...

      Dear Sovetskii. I wouldn’t be so deceived, the hopes for a Pepsi generation, in short pants and sneakers on my bare feet, are somehow not enough, and those who grew up under the Union are less and less.

    Explain not to the specialist, but last year’s missiles, what went bad? It seems that they did not conduct large-scale military operations, which means they should not have been used. Or is it an attempt by the Pentagon generals to make money out of the guise? recourse

      Well, in this case, it’s more likely to quietly build up ammunition.

        That's right, create ammunition. With the interception of such a large number of missiles, no air defense can cope.

          Self-propelled gun 57mm "Derivation-Air Defense" will cope with missiles at speeds up to 500m / s, at altitudes up to 4500m, range up to 6000m.

      Even more interesting, where did they find the enemy with barrel artillery and air defense, which must be suppressed ?! In Afghanistan, they shoveled off a shovel, in Syria - too, they also fled from Iraq - this is a matter of time ... Venezuela?

      A rocket is an ammunition.
      Ammunition is stored in warehouses: cartridges, shells, bombs, missiles.

    as well as with increasing competition from the "great powers" - Russia and China.

    What they have there is no docking, "template break".
    We are a small regional power, a gas station, with a torn economy. As regionals, we have interests in the region that the US needs to consider.
    1. There are training centers from Ukraine, bases and nuclear weapons from Eastern Europe, including Turkey.
    2. Get out of Serbia.
    3. Won PSA from Sakhalin.
    4. Return the money to Maduro and Iran!
    5. Well and further on the list, including the NSR and Antarctica.

    Is it really just now? Do you read your own president?
    "For eight years Russia" pressed "President Obama, became stronger and stronger, intercepted Crimea and increased the number of missiles. Weakness!"
    March 2017, quote from a personal page on Twitter

    Much saying phrase - "intercepted Crimea"!!!

    Why not a million ?! Especially against Russia? Any war of the USA against Russia is a nuclear war. With all the ensuing consequences for the USA itself. So let it be hidden. We can’t afford it. But the radioactive ash from the USA has long been ready for this.

    They are preparing for war with Russia, I don’t think that the States will trample on China, there is a tendency to increase the arsenal for the war, and most likely, I may be mistaken in the fact that the States and China are going to fight among themselves, like a veiled game of the public, like we are enemies and competitors, and in the event of a successful outcome, divide the territory of Russia among themselves, it is not in vain that in China the entire far east is indicated on their maps as their territory, I could be wrong, but only such thoughts go into my head why the pulling together of a powerful group does not occur at the borders of Ki melting but only at the borders of Ivan? A peace treaty is that ??? Winners are not judged, she will endure paper!
