In the United States, they argued about the existence of the "Dead Hand" system - an automated complex retaliatory nuclear strike


In the United States, the material that was published in the Air Force Magazine against the background of the tests of the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was actively discussed. It is noted that the commotion among experts caused a statement by the reporter that the US Air Force could launch ICBMs "without involving personnel."


They talked about the fact that we can talk about a system called the "Dead Hand". “Dead hand” refers to the Perimeter system created in the USSR — a complex of automated control of a massive retaliatory nuclear strike. Earlier in the USA there was an analogue of the “Perimeter” - the ERCS system (emergency missile communications system). Both the so-called (West) "Dead Hand" and ERCS set as their main goal the possibility of launching a retaliatory missile strike with the maximum degree of automation of the process.
The publication in Air Force Magazine made American experts talk about the fact that the complex of automatic "nuclear response" in the US exists today.

In the magazine The Drive, commenting on the article, they actually entered into a dispute with her, hastening to declare that there is no automatic “Dead Hand” trigger for launches in the USA.

Currently, three Air Force missile wings control 400 Minuteman IIIs in bunkers and mines scattered across Montana, Nebraska, and North Dakota. Another 278 missiles are in special facilities for testing and other purposes. Missiles are monitored on missile fields 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Such statements are perceived as the presence of a "Dead Hand" in the United States.

It is noted that in the US Air Force park there is aviation command posts that constantly monitor the air situation and are ready to make decisions regarding the use of ICBMs.

The Drive indicates that it’s “not profitable for the United States” to keep an automated system like the “Dead Hand” (“Perimeter”) on alert at all times. It is also recalled that since 1991 in the United States "there is no system of continuous automated warning of nuclear attacks."

As a result, the very system of "Dead Hand" ("Perimeter") in the United States called the "remnant of the Cold War."

        Project of the Yankees "Mirror". The crews were CONTINUOUSLY in the air right up to the collapse of the USSR (?) With the task of controlling the sky if control of the earth was lost due to a sudden attack. The main difference is that the Yankees relied on people who would have warned them of the attack. Hence the B-52’s small resource.

          Well, let the relic, we will not lose how they call names.
          But the "Dead Hand" is worse - and let them dream more often and more often, the more trumps will boast of their exclusivity - before the "Dead Hand" EVERYTHING will be equal !!

            It seems to me unlikely. Our military doctrine proceeds from defense, and for them, they have been beaten up for some country for several years, and the striped ones, as usual, are very complacent and self-confident in their impunity. Plus, they consider their troops invincible, and they have nothing to do with the extra “dead weapon” as they thought. And now they are thoughtful in the light of our new and Chinese weapons .. And it looked ridiculous .. laughing Perhaps they will create their own "Perimeter".

              Pavel, why do they need a dead hand? They are planning to attack first, we don’t have such idiots, with all my unpleasant attitude towards “our” government.
              And I really hope that our "perimeter" is not a fantasy.

                There is no direct indication that the complex is alive (not to cause panic), but there is the Nudol missile defense system, which is in excellent condition and directly asking for the role of the successor to the Perimeter system (at least several of its functions (after all, the Perimeter was not destroyed as we fought with the Strategic Missile Forces)).

        So let him be sure. The "dead hand" is so called because there will be no one to give the order and press the button. Belief in the existence of such a system should be very stressful for those planning a "disarming strike" ...

With a British passport in your pocket ... and real estate in London. Or maybe the son of D. Medvedev will avenge us all? You have some kind of idealistic view of the world. Or are you so troll?

            But if all the real Russian Russians die in the struggle for their Fatherland, Motherland, it turns out that S. Brilev and the son of D. Medvedev and the like will love for us ... somehow it doesn’t work out rightly, don't you find it? We all have a skull with bones, and they are in chocolate ... So what am I talking about? There is no need to whip about retribution and about Russian souls, less pathos. Russian souls are all different, someone's clean, someone's dirty ... therefore, it’s not necessary to speak for all of us Russians. Let everyone speak for themselves. We Russians are united only by the memory of the Great Patriotic War (who remembers it), otherwise we are infinitely far from each other, a class, caste society. My grandfathers fought in the Second World War for the socialist state of workers and peasants, but what will I have to fight for? For Putin? For Putin’s homies? Or for the memory of the Great Patriotic War, on which they parasitize?

    Inclined to believe. If we analyze the military doctrine of the United States, the structure of the strategic missile forces, the army and the navy, it creates complete confidence that American politicians were always sure that the USSR, and now Russia, would never have delivered a nuclear strike first. All this talk about the "nuclear threat from the east," is nothing but political rhetoric designed to keep the world in suspense, which is very beneficial for the United States to maintain its dominance.

    And in our country such a system should work. Moreover, after the United States withdrew from the treaty on intermediate- and shorter-range missiles, as a result of which, the ice time of missiles to vital areas of Russia was reduced to a few minutes, Russia should completely transfer control of the Strategic Missile Forces to artificial intelligence systems and abandon the so-called “nuclear suitcase” . The decision to launch a counter nuclear strike in the USA and the EU should be made by artificial intelligence systems within a few seconds from the moment of detection of launches in the direction of Russia or Russia's allies, without any human involvement, and our opponents should be officially notified about this so that they do not have it was tempting to use low-power nuclear charges, which they now place on nuclear submarines.

      Why would they do it themselves? "Bend" us? The USA can set China against Russia, while Americans like to act with the wrong hands. And they bend so that the fur coat wraps ... Forced to recall that it was China that took away from the USSR Fr. Damansky, and not the USSR, took something from China. Well, who was stronger in the end? I must say that the USSR then, this is not Russia now, the economy is not comparable. And in the war, the economy wins first, and then the army. "Hurray - patriotism" during the war with China will not work, because it will break about Chinese nationalism and fanaticism. And the economy, of course ... I always come across the phrase “Made in China”, and almost never the phrase “Made in Russia”.

        There are few fools in China, much less than in the USA. Wars are waged either "small-victorious" - for political purposes, or those who feed themselves - you must immediately have a profit. Neither one nor the other reason comes to China.
        But the idiotic belief that you can place and use (often in the USA it has already been voiced) - "low-power nuclear charges" ... They are low-power - no one will be offended ... This is just a sign of an epidemic of mental retardation in the United States

          Have you lived in the USA and China to have the right to speculate where there are more fools and where less? I had to go to the USA and China to work and I dare to assure you that I saw (and see) fools with us, and this is depressing. You, on your own behalf, take the liberty of deciding what is beneficial for China and what is not — are you: a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China? China is the only country in the world capable of attacking and destroying Russia as a State. No, they won’t go to Moscow and Kaliningrad, they don’t have to go so far and there’s nothing more ... they just chop off Siberia + the Far East. But such a castrated Russia will be considered the State? “I don’t think,” as one not unknown character used to say ... I tell you for sure: they have such plans for us and they don’t hide this very much.

              What are the fools here? The topic of the article is not about that. I say that the United States can provoke China to attack Russia, they are masters in this matter; and China is the only country capable of destroying Russia. I am telling you this. And you, please, can justify something and prove to someone. I don’t have to prove anything: I lived in China enough to establish my opinion. Benefit - the concept is rather arbitrary, and when these guys need our land again, they will come for it.

              They will stop lending money for the development of the Chinese economy. The economy of China needs the American dollar no less than the economy of our country. Just like the Chinese economy, it needs resources in order not to collapse. And the resources on the foreign market for what currency are purchased? Someday the United States will get tired of playing the “Nanai Boys Fight” with China, and they will set the conditions for it: “We will give you everything, you won’t need anything: loans, interest-free loans, preferential duties to trade with the world ... we will write off your debts to you. But you must start a war with Russia. Desirable, national liberation ... are they in the Far East partly occupying your historical lands? Well, that’s the reason ... And we will help you. Remember the little Japan, as it was known to Russia in the summer of 1905, who had been fed up to England, France and Germany and us, we wouldn’t be cunning ... But you aren’t Japan in 1905; after all, you’re 1,5 billion. And if you don’t want to start in a good way, we will make you start in a bad way, we will also help the Russians against you. Yes, in dollars, for starters ... ” The United States is capable of destroying any country in the world, but everything has its own price. And Americans know how to count money well, therefore, they prefer to destroy countries hostile to them with the wrong hands. Here it is. Yes, we still just did not get the turn. After Iran, we are next. And China is going to be the executioner. At least there they are getting ready for this.

    I remember my young years, I was on duty at ABM Perimeter. After the DB, severe headaches, tinnitus, impaired eyesight ..., all of VZPU, the head of our shift recently died of a stroke at 60 ..., I had a heart attack at 47, and apparently not the first ... So judge Liberalists are bad, we deservedly receive a pension for a couple of "cents" more and retire early in 45 years. All veterans of the Strategic Missile Forces health, well-being and a little luck !!!

      he was on duty on ordinary nuclear "heads" - nothing hurt after the database — usually they would go for a couple of glasses of beer if they were not left in the division responsible and die, since half of the military retirement begins to leave, especially who had the database, with a constant change of day and night, etc. not for nothing that we are written off at 45 maximum ..
      At your Perimeter, as far as I know, x-ray is 0, and the head itself does not emit anything until it is launched .. Perhaps it’s just that your PDRC was a powerful DB location right next to it, but then the “Perimeter” has nothing to do with any situation .. And in general and to you a colleague, health and good luck !!!

    I don’t know about the automatic dead hand, but there is a very working organizational dead hand. The fact is that there are several types of missile launch teams, one of these commands: "Start during HH.MM." Actually, if something bad is suspected, the KP of the missile forces gives the command to launch the missiles in half an hour, well, just in case. And after 15 minutes, give a new command, postponing the launch a little later ... And so on ad infinitum. When destroying the missile forces CP, there will be no one to cancel, or reschedule the team at a later time. Naturally, the first strike can be fired, part of the missiles will be destroyed, but the survivors have already received a command to launch. I will add that the communication channels in the Strategic Missile Forces are repeatedly reserved, it is very very difficult to destroy all types of communications at the same time.

      The possibility is theoretically, in practice - I have never seen such a team .. Directly repeatedly, of course you turned down, but of course reserved more than once .. Oleg, you just don’t know the launch procedure itself, that's why you are reasoning, but the reasoning is absolutely logical but not true .. I’ll just say that no one will launch the launch codes before the start of the war, sorry, I won’t explain further ..

With the task of controlling the sky if control of the earth was lost due to a sudden attack. The main difference is that the Yankees relied on people who would have warned them of the attack. Hence the B-52’s small resource.

    Exactly, Nikolai. The difference in systems is that in one case decisions are made by people who are able to think and analyze emerging facts, in the other - automation, which does not need to be done.

    Modern calculations of rocket launchers have only one task, to make a decision to launch after receiving an order or receiving information about a nuclear strike on the territory of the country.
    these are two keys, a password to unlock and the same red button. And the end of all civilization, and most likely all forms of complex organic life on the planet. "Perimeter" is actually a specialized rocket launched into orbit from nuuu oooochen fortified mine (rumored withstands a direct hit by tactical nuclear weapons, according to rumors) and by radio distributing orders for retaliation. That is, the person is still present, just at that epic moment there are no longer those who give the order, nor decision centers and state strikes as such. But there are surviving calculations of the Strategic Missile Forces deep in the bunkers which already have nothing to lose because they already have nothing. The guys there (with us) are picked up with a special mentality and psychologically processed to complete frostbite in terms of fulfilling the last order. people.

    Well, it did not start into orbit, it launched along a high-altitude trajectory. And as for a very fortified mine - of the command missiles, only 15A11 was mine. But it has already been removed from service for about 30 years. First the Horn was shot, then 15A11. What is now - on the basis of "Poplar with a point." Yes, and then re-equipped but a new complex

    3 - nuclear weapons at sea.

    The contract was signed in 1967. The first launch of the Perimeter 1A11 command missile was completed on December 26.12.1979, 12. 15 years after signing the contract. And how could these missiles not be ballistic, since they were all created on the basis of ballistic missiles. 11A100 based on the ICBM MR-UR-15UTTX (16A15). The Gorn command missile was created on the basis of the Pioneer-UTTKh ballistic missile (53Zh15), the Siren command missile was created on the basis of the Topol-T ICBM (58.1ZhXNUMX), or as it was also called the Topol with a Point. The newly created command missile "Sirena-M" based on the "Yars"
