USA completes creation of Aegis Ashore missile defense element in Poland

23
The United States is completing the construction of another section of the Aegis Ashore global ballistic missile defense (ABM) system in Poland. It is intended, first of all, to counter ballistic missiles of medium and short range.





US Navy Vice Admiral John Hill, Director of the United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA), visited the Aegis Ashore missile defense system (AAMDS) site in Poland. His visit marked the progress made during the construction of the missile defense shield, which, in the future, would protect NATO countries from Russian ballistic missiles.

A new element of the American “shield” is being built near the town of Redzikowo. Hill and his entourage visited the multi-purpose residential complex, the galley and the inside of the “cabin” Aegis Ashore.

Currently, the construction of the complex is nearing completion, it is believed that the new facility will help strengthen the defense potential of NATO. The first facility of the Aegis Ashore global missile defense system was created in Deveselu, Romania, in 2016, as part of a phased strengthening of European defenses launched by the Obama administration in 2009. Aegis Ashore uses a system that is virtually identical to the one used on Aegis US Navy destroyers.

The system is designed to detect, track, destroy and destroy ballistic missiles in flight. In addition to the radar and control system, several launch modules containing interceptors of the Standart Missile-3 (SM-3) class will be placed at the facility.

Russia has repeatedly expressed the view that the presence of this system violates nuclear parity. The global missile defense system sets itself the task of shifting to the US allies part of the concern for protecting the territories of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance from possible nuclear strikes. Initially, the United States stubbornly stated that the missile defense system was directed against Iran. At the same time, when Russia asked to provide documentary evidence of the illegality of the system against the Russian Federation, the USA was refused.

          This complex is needed by our scientists and engineers to find new solutions and improve our missiles. And the Poles are already green on the forehead anyway.

            The usefulness of this complex for the Russian military-industrial complex is to understand whether the use of nuclear weapons with a capacity of 5 Kt will be sufficient to guarantee the failure of this facility with impossibility to restore it for its intended use with low contamination of the terrain.
            At the same time, carry out a set of humanitarian studies in the field of climate to determine the effect of residual radiation on the development of recommendations for the return of this land to economic turnover in Poland

          It will come in handy, Iran is constantly strengthening, then it maintains close contacts with Russia. For Poles, one thing is like a red rag for a bull. True, after the events in Saudi Arabia, the Poles probably became even worse. I think, with common sense, it's time to start negotiations with Russia.

        Shlyakhtichs are accustomed to the fact that they are constantly used as "bobiks" set against Russia and constantly receiving musals. Ever since the time of Ivan Susanin and even earlier. ...

      ABM systems should first of all (in their opinion) ensure the security of the USA themselves ..... but they have already drawn a target on the forehead of the Poles.

        Poland, like a buffer, is in any case a target. It doesn’t matter if the US missile defense would be there or not.

      Hmm! 220 km from Kaliningrad, for an Iskander-M missile, at a missile speed, after the initial section of the trajectory, 2100 m / s, flight time ...? It looks like they won't even have time to fart after exclaiming "Kurwa"!
