Accuracy up to 14 inches: Trump reiterated the "unparalleled in the world" American rocket

55

In the United States, the theme of “super duper missile”, the presence of which was announced by President Donald Trump during his May speech, was once again raised in the United States. According to Trump, the United States is creating a missile that "has no analogues in the world in speed."


Trump repeated his statement, adding a few more words about “unparalleled rockets in the world,” to graduates of the West Point Military Academy:

You have heard that Russia and China have rockets that can fly 5-6 times faster than sound. And our super-duper rocket is capable of speeds of 17 times the speed of sound. We produce incredible military equipment. For everyone back, a rocket flying 17 times faster than sound is a good one news.

Trump further stated that "a rocket is capable of hitting a target at a distance of 1 thousand miles with an accuracy of 14 inches."

After that, Trump has already announced that "the American rocket is 17 times faster than the fastest rocket to date." So 17 times faster than sound or 17 times faster than the “fastest rocket”?

The American press notes that that statement by Trump aroused great interest among experts. But no one can understand what kind of rocket the US president is talking about. It's about hypersonic weapons or ballistic missiles? So far, none of the US arms manufacturers and none of the Pentagon officials have officially announced the testing of hypersonic weapons with speed parameters announced by the US president.

In Business Insider, columnist Ryan Pickrel writes the following about this:

Trump's description of the new rocket, which is 17 times faster than the fastest rocket currently available in the world, is probably an exaggeration or misunderstanding.

    Trump further stated that "a rocket is capable of hitting a target at a distance of 1 thousand miles with an accuracy of 14 inches."

    Do I have one opinion that Trump makes a mine with a bad game? Although its super-duper and 14 inches, it’s like we have no analogs. Very similar.

      Is this super ballistic or winged super-dupe? Probably winged, then we see a vertical launch, which pin_day never had on the shore.

        They go along the road Ilya Muromets, Dobrynya Nikitich and Alyosha Popovich. And then three musketeers come to meet them. Aramis says: get off the road, let
        us. Ilya Muromets supposedly bring down yourself. They are arguing like that.
        Then Aramis says: Dartanyan, take the crayon and draw a cross on your chest
        Ilya Muromets. He takes the sword and says: now I will pierce you with the sword straight
        to the cross. Ilya turns to Alyosha Popovich: Alyosha sprinkle him with chalk
        and give me the mace.

            I could never understand: "exception confirms the rule." How did it happen? There are no rules without exceptions? Something in this phrase is wrong.

            Consider the logic of the situation created during the dispute.
            1. "Accuracy up to 14 inches." Trump called this figure praising his new feature. Like, the rocket is not only very fast, but also very accurate.
            2. To which I sarcastically remarked: "There is no difference as a result of a piece of ice weighing 20 kg or 200 kg falling onto a head from a roof." In other words, why does a device leaving a funnel with a diameter of, say, 3,5 meters (maybe much more) have an accuracy of plus or minus 14 inches (approx. 35 cm)?
            3. To which the Lean participant noted that such a case is known: "... three years ago in the Rostov Region a man received a blow with a large icicle on the head, but the blow was on the mowing, and a warm fur hat played a role! As a result, three months "in the hospital, and a living and healthy person is still working as a truck driver!"
            In other words, on the basis of this incident, he considered that I was wrong. There is nothing like that here. So a person thinks. Has the right to. What?
            I would very much like to believe that the "large icicle", this is the same 20-200 kg and from its fall on the head, in all other cases, a fur hat will save. That is why I wished the man all the very best.

            As for the “incorrect phrase”, here is what the experts tell us:
            This phrase, which is obviously illogical, is used completely incorrectly. This expression was formed as a paraphrase from the speech of Cicero in defense of Lucius Cornelius Balb the Elder. They accused him of illegally acquiring Roman citizenship. The case was heard in 56 BC. e.

            Balb was a native of Hades (modern name Cadiz), served under the leadership of Pompey, with whom he was friendly; Pompey was the sponsor of his citizenship. The background of the accusation was, as in most high-profile cases of that time, political. Although Balb himself was politically active, the blow, of course, was aimed at the triumvirates of the First Triumvirate (Caesar, Crassus and Pompey).

            In defense of Balba were not only Cicero, but also Pompey and Crassus. The case was won. In his speech, Cicero makes the following argument: In some interstate agreements on the mutual recognition of Rome with neighboring countries, there was a clause explicitly excluding dual citizenship: the inhabitants of those countries could not become Roman citizens without first giving up their own. Balba's citizenship was dual; this was the formal side of the charge. Cicero says that since some agreements have such an exception, those agreements that do not have one are subject to the opposite rule, namely they allow dual citizenship. In other words, if an exception exists, then there must be a rule from which this exception is made, even if this rule has never been formulated explicitly. Thus, the existence of exceptions confirms the existence of a rule from which these exceptions are made.

            In other words, not exceptions confirm the rule, but the existence of exceptions confirms the existence of the rule!

      But about the DILETER it is worth recalling that Trump in his youth graduated from the New York Military Academy (1964). So he probably knows the basics of military service. And to "subtle" the subtleties - that is a bunch of presidential advisers and experts. He is a businessman politician. Therefore, he has such a "marketing" approach to all problems, including the military ...

    Here it is very appropriate to note the analogy with the photo where Rogozin presents Putin the models of rockets. And the funny thing is that a normal scientist would immediately notice that in these mock-ups the principle of increasing the number of engines is obvious. That is, the principle itself has boundary limits and at the same time pulls an increase in rocket mass and fuel volumes. In general, everything is old as at the beginning of rocket technology. But! These principles are everywhere, and applications for hyper speeds are a whole new level of technology. Therefore, the ping-pong statements by the presidents have absolutely no reason to believe in their words.
