In the United States gathered to dispose of depleted uranium shells for GAU-8 aircraft guns and tanks

57
In the United States, the issue of disposing of 35,7 million (!) Ammunition with depleted uranium cores used for combat needs is being studied aviation. We are primarily talking about ammunition for a 30-mm aircraft gun. This is the GAU-7 / A Avenger (Avenger) 8-barrel rotating gun adopted in the US.


In the United States gathered to dispose of depleted uranium shells for GAU-8 aircraft guns and tanks


The GAU-8 / A gun is mounted on the A-10 attack aircraft. At one time, these attack aircraft actively used ammunition with depleted uranium (OU) cores during the bombing of Yugoslavia. Echoes of the use of such aircraft in Serbian cities are heard to this day.

In addition to aviation ammunition with DU, the United States plans to dispose of armor-piercing tank shells of calibers 105 and 120 mm. These projectiles also feature depleted uranium.

The American media reported that the tender parameters for the disposal of a huge number of ammunition from OS in the United States was posted a few days ago. The document presents the nomenclature of ammunition that the Pentagon plans to dispose of. They are stored at the 8 arsenals of the American army, including Hawthorne army depots, McAlister ammunition factory warehouses, Tuile arsenal, Enniston ammunition storage center, etc.

It has not yet been announced how much the Pentagon plans to spend to dispose of this huge arsenal of shells with OS.

      The graves have a shelf life, but the "avenger" shells are no longer suitable for anyone ....

        Here is how it could be used against Yugoslavia and generally against any other countries depleted uranium weapons ?! I'm not talking about the US attack on Yugoslavia, as such, in general! Well, here's how ?!

        And also the United States declares some kind of peacefulness! This is their gendarmerie bullshit!

          Americans are certainly not angels, but the propaganda nonsense you wrote ....
          I understand that you do not need to know technical data to shout about the "enemies of the Russian" civilization, but even under the USSR, shells from OU were developed and adopted, and the army of our country did not abandon them, or rather, Nadfil-2 "3BM30, "Vant" 3BM32, "Lead-1" 3BM59 and "Lead-2" 3BM60, and this is only for memory ...

              Do you want to be like in a kindergarten, who was the first to start? Approximately in parallel (the first ideas are the end of the 50s) and came to this at about the same time (the second half of the 70s), the problems with materials for armor-piercing shells are the same, the laws of physics both for American "Herods" and our "bright" scientists alone ...
              Regarding the application, it is necessary to conduct fairly large studies, but given that the ammunition I mentioned is tank shells, I dare to assume that at least there are conflicts in the former USSR, but I am not an expert ..

                  Well, let’s go along your path, can there be evidence in the studio of the involvement of the American special services in the events of 1993 in Moscow? And most importantly, this is precisely their work, and not just support for the events that began (if there was one at all ... by the way, as in Libya and the Arab / African countries in principle)! Well, or in Iraq in 1963 (by the way, which coup of the two was organized by the CIA?)? By the way, if BAAS is the work of the CIA, why can we now support their protege in Syria can you explain? Or is our leadership working for the CIA as a whole?
                  C'mon, what a trifle .. Since you have done such a huge job and found evidence (reinforced concrete) of the organization of almost 50 (!) Coups by US and British intelligence in these countries, submit this to the public, do not engage in propaganda ....

                        I believe the Pentagon will find where to dispose of the ammunition.

                    As it turned out, evidence is especially unnecessary if you accuse Russia. In addition, we (the commentators) cannot have "irrefutable" evidence in any way other than links to other sources. Are you inclined to believe that Russia used depleted uranium munitions? Your right. But at least guess where? Have they been used by the United States? Flashed in the media. Does the United States engage in coups? There are notes in the media. Is the Russian Federation doing this? Is that Trump is attributed to us. Is the United States pursuing an aggressive policy? Lots of examples. Russia? Where is the example? Crimea and Donbass? I disagree. And then you can always say, why should we sit quietly while they huddle us? Or do you assign us the role of a bull in the proverb about Jupiter? Or whatever it sounds like ...

                      Excuse me, but in what post did I write that the Russian Federation used shells from OS? I wrote that the shells from the OS were (are being developed, received, and are now) in the tank bay of T-64/72/80/90 tanks! I don’t have information about their use, but I suppose that it could be in one of many conflicts in the post-Soviet space (in Ukraine, Georgia, Karabakh, Transnistria, Chechnya, etc.)!

                      Most of the direct actions of the United States, unfortunately, are supported by the international community in the person of the UN (Yugoslavia, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya), including the Russian Federation, the corresponding decision and purely legally aggression is not (the rest is empty polemics, depends on the point of view). With regard to Crimea, from the point of view of international law (the UN as an example), an obvious aggression (from a political point of view, a forced, although correct measure). Whether you agree or not, it is purely your business ... (yes yes yes, I'm waiting for 100500 minuses for the "wrong" and "unpopular" point of view about our double standards)

                        You are not thinking about those. I sometimes put a minus. But I never bet if I consider you even a little right. So we can say, but are we sure that only Hiroshima and Nagasaki were attacked? Everyone tested the weapon. Who applied? Who created the international precedents? Who trampled upon all UN decisions and picked them up for themselves? No more such an organization. There are three poles. Russia, China and everyone annoyed with lice. And if I could sacrifice my life to erase it from the map of the earth, I would not hesitate.

              Well, in the case, is there anything to argue with? It seems to me that I wrote, besides, shells with op-amp are used criminally. I can remind you: OA ingot itself is harmless, but when it hits a solid, it generates fine dust that hangs in the air for a long time or settles on objects. When inhaled, it enters the lungs and lingers there. Even depleted uranium is radioactive. Usually just a layer of paint is enough to neutralize this radiation. But inside the lungs, uranium dust generates oncology.
              The growth of oncology of the respiratory system is officially registered in places where the staff used shells with OS. The civilian population. Over the years after the war.

                Shells from the Shelter are not prohibited. Although what you wrote about carcinogenic dust is true.
                But the Sunbar thermobaric missiles, for example, are not prohibited. Applied by area to smoke the enemy from urban areas. And about their effects on
                the human body and writing is scary. OU compared to this is a sunblock.
                In war, there are many means with monstrous effects that are not prohibited and
                widely used. Shelter among them - in the last places.

                  Please note, I wrote two sentences at the end of the post.
                  "Among the civilian population. Years after the war."
                  This is not about a direct clash, but about the fact that the consequences of the use of OS are lost on people who did not participate in the war, they are struck years after the war.

    In the United States gathered to dispose of depleted uranium shells for GAU-8 aircraft guns and tanks
    This is a very costly undertaking and requires a lot of money, knowing them, they certainly won’t go for it. Unless they are eliminated, they will again be carried out in the form of strikes against residential targets, as they always do.

      If the shells are of category 3, then they are not just dangerous to use, but prohibited. Therefore, only industrial recycling. If there is such a technology, as well as a burial ground.

      This is a very costly business and requires considerable money, knowing them, they certainly will not go for it.

      Why not? Greens in Congress were selling, as is usually the case, judging by the media, issues supported by environmentalists, which could also be earned. In the United States, the entire military-industrial complex is in the hands of private business, therefore, what to make, what to dispose of is all earnings.

        Because we already went through this, when we destroyed all our charges, but they preserved and buried and at any moment could get them and use them. It's not their style to act like that.

        And where does the greens at all? they have nothing to do with this subject at all, they know their place where they can raise their voices and where not, they won’t go against the military, they know the real outcome of all this.

        No, the military-industrial complex is at the state level, because it is well understood what it can lead to if it is in private hands.

          The basis of the US military-industrial complex is based on state money, but is transferred to the management of private business. There are government facilities under the direct control of the Pentagon.
          Currently, the production base of the industry engaged in the production of conventional ammunition is about 250 state and private enterprises, including 36 large state centers with 250 production lines. State-owned equipment and assembly plants are considered by the military leadership as the property of the US Army and Navy. 25 large state-owned factories were leased to private firms, which organized the production of ammunition on orders of the Ministry of Defense. Due to the underestimation of ammunition production capacities, part of the production lines is mothballed or put into reserve. Recycling facilities have been deployed at parts of industries not involved in the manufacture of ammunition. There, the same song private owners can disassemble, state-owned enterprises (possibly transferred to the management of private owners) utilization of components, and all together are interested in government procurement.

          Here are the military, just not in business. And "green" is always used by some production workers against others. They were green by themselves, then maybe they knew some place, and since they work off the money of their owners, they will do what they are told to do. In this case, they can be used to put pressure on Congress to move budget funds in the right direction. These are my assumptions. As it really is, probably hardly anyone will know.

            The entire military-industrial complex is held by the state and is not there, no private contributions.

              I made a mistake and got better. It happens. In any case, private business in the military-industrial complex is very widely represented by business giants. See the largest campaigns - Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman Corporation, General Dynamics, United Technologies, Huntington Ingalls Industries, etc., all public campaigns, joint-stock. In some, there are possibly government packages. Despite the fact that they are often transferred to the administration of state funds of military production. It is difficult enough to define them in one hypostasis. They are very difficult to configure.
              Are you saying that they are all state-owned? How many shares of these enterprises, at least those that I have named, have the state?

                  So, you can’t give evidence of nationality. Therefore, there is no truth on your side. Although in fact having touched every campaign, you can find lists of the largest investors in any of the previously mentioned giant companies. The vast majority are the same public campaigns (joint-stock companies) and private financial institutions.

                      Take Lockheed Martin as an example:
                      It produces ballistic missiles, ammunition, missile defense, transport and fighter aircraft, radars, satellites and more.
                      All major shareholders are large financial institutions. Like the Standard & Poor's (S&P) 500, Lockheed Martin is a must-have holding for many passively managed mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
                      State Street Corporation (NYSE: STT STTState Street Corp90. 28-2. 18% Created with Highstock 4. 2. 6) is a large asset manager and one of the main sponsors of ETF.
                      Capital Group, based in Los Angeles, California, is one of the world's largest private asset management companies and owns 9. 01% of Lockheed Martin. Vanguard holds 6. 16% of Lockheed Martin.
                      Wellington Management owns 3. 44% of Lockheed Martin shares with a total value of more than $ 2 billion. Something like this...

    Uranium BOPS is a wartime projectile, but is not needed in local wars. Then there are many problems both of ours and with ecologists. Plus, the concept itself - the destruction by an attack aircraft of a cannon of armored vehicles has outlived itself.

      Most likely the second.
      What they will shoot from.
      In the United States, the issue of utilizing 35,7 million (!) Ammunition with depleted uranium cores used for military aviation is being studied. We are primarily talking about ammunition for a 30-mm aircraft gun.

    As always, the representative of the "exceptional" tries to twist, confusing hot with soft. Depleted uranium munitions pose a deadly "LONG-PLAY" hazard to civilians not participating in hostilities. And thermobaric rockets of Solntsepёk are designed and used for destruction of the enemy providing the ARMED RESISTANCE . Can’t you tell the difference? Poorly learned from the Rebbe the lessons of rhetoric, in the TORA - failure! laughing
