The Pentagon conducts exercises to align troops to confront Russia and China

23
In the fall, the Pentagon will hold a series of exercises dedicated to the confrontation between China and Russia. This was reported by the portal Defense News.




The U.S. Department of Defense has planned a series of military exercises in October and November, led by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It is assumed that during the tactical games, the Pentagon will assess the effectiveness of combat plans against the PRC and the Russian Federation.

The primary objective of the Global Integrated Wargame exercises will be the inter-arm communications systems and the verification of new equipment associated with them. In particular, promising communication channels should make it possible to unite military units into a single network that conducts data exchange without additional intermediaries. Such an approach should help reduce the reaction time to events and increase the awareness of the troops on the battlefield, as well as reduce losses from the so-called. "Friendly fire."

US is not ready to fight an equal adversary


One of the main problems that the Pentagon is facing is the fact that in the last two decades the main enemy of the United States in wars has been partisan and rebel formations, and the troops are focused on fighting an enemy that is technologically inferior to the Americans. In turn, Russia and China have shown themselves to be countries capable of waging a complex and highly intense network-centric war at a high technical level. For a number of positions (for example, in the field of hypersonic weapons and air defense systems), Moscow and Beijing are ahead of the United States.

When exactly this was shown by China, it is not reported.

We are now sorely lacking a conceptual vision of the interaction of the various arms of our forces in a battle with an equal strength enemy.

- quoted DefenseNews words of Eric Wesley, director of the Center for the improvement of combat skills of the United States Armed Forces.

Commenting on the situation, Wesley notes that the pace of hostilities has fundamentally changed. In addition, the complexity of the interaction of various branches of the armed forces has increased, despite the fact that the need for effective communications in this area is felt more than ever. The American general emphasizes that in the event of a war with the PRC or Russia, they will be characterized by "ultra-high activity."

Not enough communication


Currently, the Pentagon is observing a serious problem that limits the ability of troops to engage in real-time interaction. It is partially “industrial”. For example, despite the fact that fifth-generation fighters F-22 and F-35 are produced by the same manufacturer, their communication systems cannot communicate and exchange information with each other.

American generals note that today there is an urgent strategic need to coordinate actions in real time.

    What for? You even fine-tuned recently in Afghanistan ... And before that - in Iraq ... And before that - in Syria. Or was there non-combat co-ordination?

      There were AUGs and other shooters from far away ..
      The United States is terribly afraid of a direct collision .. After all, everyone will run forsaking, their bells and whistles interfaces, etc.
      And Russia has long been getting along with other armies of the world at the military competitions "Tank Biathlon", etc. ..It will be difficult for you if you decide hi

    All this is not enough. For the past ten years everyone has been talking about network-centric warfare, but so far no one has created a single and comprehensive concept. Military theorists have been transferred in the world.

      There are divs. True, he is not a military theorist, but a science fiction writer. Well, he introduced such a term - "Schrödinger's war".

        To rely in military construction on the conclusions of the writer Divov, as they say in one already boring advertisement - "it is possible, but not far-sighted."

          No more than Pentagon analysts. Do not notice how they shy away from side to side? From the super-invisible F-35 at the cost of an army of a small country for a war with a tricked adversary - to the Supertukano propeller-driven attack aircraft, as F-35 is applied to the Taliban, who still have Enfield in service - it’s somehow strange.
          It seems they themselves do not understand what kind of weapon is needed - for what kind of war will be - and hell knows. Network-centric? Yes, somehow the United States has been half a century as a shepherds with karamultuki nightmares what network-centric there, and what for they stealth with an electrocatapult - they know only at a pentagonal sawmill.
          That’s why there are no theoreticians - practice in waves is not visible even in theory

              Mid-18th century, "land rat" John Clerk, who had never walked the Okyan seas, published the book "Evolution of the Fleets", which radically changed the tactics of the British fleet of the line. The Clerk developed his tactics not by playing with boats in the pond, but by moving coins on the table. Sometimes non-specialists also have rational ideas, just professionals do not need to shy away, but understand the idea, comprehend and apply creatively. The clerk was lucky - he had admirals as friends and was able to explain his ideas.

                The concept of the British Empire is already buried. Who is the admiral today in the first place? First of all, any admiral, general and marshal - a link in the chain of cut. Who cares how many will be killed and wounded? And who will win there? The whole question is how much money can be pumped out in the process of arming the army and conducting hostilities.
                Well, since the role of information support and information attack is now fully appreciated (it is brain confusion, it turns out, it brings the greatest profits), now you are not moving coins on the table. Squeeze the engine immediately, do not hesitate.

                It was similar to the Americans during the Second World War: the physicist who had never flown a combat aircraft created bombardment tables for pilots. They were introduced into the sights with a mechanical calculator. And he turned out to be a direct ancestor of Hephaestus.

    America, with a simultaneous war on two fronts (against Russia and China) - there is no chance to win, from the word at all.

    How can one regard the direct designation of the adversary?
    Only as an attempt of verbal pressure on him, and suddenly he will be frightened by the teachings and will hurry to bow. In order to learn how to fight a real adversary, equal in armament and technical support, and besides, to establish interaction and coherence of units of various NATO countries, Americans need several years of painstaking work. But you should not forget that the psychology of the American (European) soldier cannot be changed. He is not ready to fight a strong opponent, endure the hardships and hardships, not to mention self-sacrifice.

      A common misconception.
      In Iraqi and Afghan wars, American soldiers received orders posthumously for pulling out wounded comrades at the cost of their lives, and closed a grenade with their bodies.
      They covered the retreat, firing to the last. All the same as the Russian army.
      The British Marines and Special Forces jumped out into the icy water at night in the Falkland War and immediately knocked out the Argentines from their positions.

      One should not count on one's misconceptions about the enemy's effeminacy. It is better to teach your soldiers during exercises to land hundreds of live ammunition per day day and night on targets in dashes and crawls.

    China is superior to the United States in the air defense segment because it bought the S-400 from Russia. Apparently this is meant.
    If this assumption is true, then the United States in the field of air defense now also surpasses Turkey, and in the future it will surpass India.
    However, the Americans are not going to fight the last two countries in the foreseeable future. Probably.

    It must be understood that the war with the DPRK, Iran, and Afghanistan will no longer squeeze money from the State Department ...
    But Russia and China are a win-win option, in the sense of crying out for money. They are so arrogant and strong, they strive to offend unfortunate America ...

    Because in Ping dosii, His Majesty the Dollar rules. fellow lol
    After all, in order to make communication equipment of the 5th generation (if there is such a concept) it was necessary to spend money once, and therefore the counterparty to earn it
    Here we make one system, we get money. Then we make a second, albeit similar, again we row money. Then we tie them together, and again we throw the money into our pocket. Then they will come up with something else for this. The main thing is that all "appetites" are paid for, and therefore "poverty" does not threaten the manufacturer. fellow laughing

    The problem of combat readiness is against both militants and large regular armies at the same time in the IDF. Skew one way, then the other.
    It’s necessary to prepare soldiers for both, and the tactics are quite different.

      Any US war in 1-2 months turns into a fight against the partisans, and this is not a matter of poor preparation, but the speed with which they take down unwanted states for firewood.
      This is what a large regular army is preparing to fight the IDF?))
