US throws money to fight “warming up Russia,” says Army Secretary


The U.S. Army in arms development plans to abandon 41 projects and cut funding for another 39 in fiscal year 2021 in an attempt to free up funds for the implementation of the new five-year defense program FYDP.


The US military intends to completely curtail work, in particular, to create an advanced high-precision system weapons the destruction of APKWS, the MIRM medium-range ballistic missile system and the extension of the MLRS life. In total, due to the abandonment of 41 developments, $ 324,1 million of saved funds will be generated.

It is supposed to cut funding for such projects as the deep modernization of the Bradley BMP and the creation of a family of light tactical armored vehicles JLTV (it is noteworthy that Latvia has already managed to purchase 200 vehicles of this series, becoming the third future operator of new equipment after Montenegro and Slovenia). Total cost reduction for 39 projects will release $ 868,9 million.

As the publication Sputnik explains, the additional funds that appeared in this way are planned to be transferred to the five-year FYDP program. As US Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy explained on February 14, the emphasis will be on countering the “growing threat from China and the danger posed by warming up Russia.”

    Well, well, they decided that with the help of the "Bradley" will be able to organize ... counteraction? Or a blitzkrieg? In general, the news from the topic "Russians are coming!"

      In general, I have a deep conviction that the American armed forces have long been intended not for a serious war, but serve to advance the US arms business in the world and ensure the circulation of the dollar in the maximum number of states.

        the US military has long been destined not for a serious war


        I think they can drag us in, but they will wash them later, with reciprocal backing. they are without a tower. I think not far from us. But I am a great power look down on them of course.

        A smelter of nations like us. For every waffle there, there is a sergeant Hartman

        The orchid is clear! But ... This phrase was not composed in Russia or in the USSR, but in prosperous America! So that you can mock even further.

            On March 28, 1949, US First Secretary of Defense James Forrestal became confused with his mind and, upon hearing the fire siren, ran out of the house shouting "Russians are coming!" Actually, he became the creator of this meme, which completely sounds like this: "Russians are coming. Russians are coming. They are already around. I saw Russian soldiers!" (The Russians are coming; completely - eng. The Russians are coming. The Russians are coming. They're right around. I've seen Russian soldiers!).
            Later this expression was very often used by Soviet propaganda, making fun of the preparations of the "American military", though without the author’s indication.

              This is a meme on the topic "Russians are coming." Thank you, of course, but it's well known.
              I just wanted to understand how the phrase "the United States throws funds to fight" warming up Russia "sounded in the original
              Who and how translated the term "warming up Russia",

            I thought that there was a discussion of the article, but it turns out there is a discussion of the phrase that I quoted. Of course, this is more interesting than discussing an article, and you must read it!

      It is the authors of VO that each information is presented as follows. It has already become a tradition of the resource.
      And they could just give a translation of the source, without pulling the Russian owl on the American globe.
      But apparently they understand that if the "news" is not entitled "Russia", then the cheers will not start their shabby barrel organ, there will be less comments.

        As long as some local "residents" are alive, there will certainly not be less. If you live here longer, you will learn more.

      In the United States, in addition to the lead Ministry of Defense, there are three subordinate ministries of the armed forces: the ministry of the army, the ministry of the air force and the ministry of the navy. The Ministry of the Army deals with the Ground Forces.

    In total, due to the abandonment of 41 developments, $ 324,1 million of saved funds will be generated.
    Ha! two billion were added to the defense budget, but abandoned as much as 324.1 million !!! Of course, it’s impressive - only +2, but -324 and -869 !!! fellow As usual, dust in the eyes of taxpayers and cut the budget to the thunder of triumphant reports!

    An interesting article, however. Turns out JLTV hasn't been created yet. With whom then are our butt in Syria? Today, Oshkosh, who seemed to want to ram our JLTVs.

    868 million, for the Pentagon, it’s in tears. Enough for handkerchiefs for the American army.
