US declared superiority of its nuclear triad over “potential adversary”

Today, the United States is superior to all potential adversaries in the field of nuclear weapons and intend to maintain this superiority in the future. This statement was made by US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.


Speaking with General Mark Millie, Chairman of the US Chiefs of Staff, at a virtual meeting with US military personnel as well as Pentagon civilians, Esper said the US nuclear triad is the most combat-capable of any potential adversary. Esper stressed that the United States is constantly modernizing elements of the triad: strategic bombers, intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines carrying "nuclear missiles."

We maintain an extremely capable nuclear triad. More combat-ready than our opponents and competitors. We will continue to maintain this leadership in the coming years. The fact is that we are (...) modernizing our bombers, ICBMs and submarines. They will not only become more powerful than those of our competitors and adversaries (...). We must also modernize the command, control and communications systems of our nuclear (forces). We invest a lot of money in this. (...)

- said the head of the Pentagon.

According to Esper, the US intends to further develop its nuclear triad "solely for reasons of containing potential armed conflicts."

If you have a combat-ready triad, then you are able to contain the conflict, the threat to the United States. After all, that's exactly what we want: contain the conflict, contain the war. And if such efforts fail, we want to be able to fight and win.

- he stressed.

      Yes, they probably haven’t realized what a pig they were planted by ours, with the introduction of the S-500 complex, capable of intercepting their Trident 2. Almost at once leveling their entire submarine fleet (striking power), and in fact their entire nuclear triad)))).
      Think about it - we can now repel (shoot down) their massive nuclear attack, but they absolutely do not.
      This is the balance of power in the world now))))

          From here:
          "Anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) of the new generation S-500" Prometheus "will be able to hit all types of ballistic missiles and combat units. This was stated by the first deputy general designer of the Almaz-Antey concern, Sergei Druzin.

            I would like to believe .... But why then A-235? For the normal destruction of ICBMs, a missile defense missile almost the ICBM itself should be ... GBI is a Minuteman without the first stage, launched from a mine ... S-500 is rather SM3 + SM6 in one bottle, only better and without an idiotic kinetic interception scheme

          For with any development of the situation a retaliatory strike is guaranteed.
          It would be nice to be so, but I have doubts, reflections of an amateur. I am afraid that with a massive strike with low-flying missiles (10-20 thousand), very few launch vehicles on the ground will survive.
          And with a sudden blow underwater there is a big chance that NATO will sink most of our drums.
          Something will survive, but the force of such a retaliatory strike may not stop from the temptation of a first non-nuclear strike.
          I have such concerns. And in order to shoot down the majority of nuclear weapons that will fly at us (as well as non-nuclear ones) in such an amount, how many 500 do you need to have?

            Have you heard about the ballistic trajectory? Where, the smaller the distance - the less chances for interceptor missiles, the ballistics is flatter. The military S-300 will play a big role here (because the RSD / RMD), rather than the S-400/500 and the Ashki missile defense.

                It is understandable, but the guidance and interception remained the same, but here the ballistics plays a ROLE ... The speed has not yet increased too much 6 - 8, as a maximum of 10 km / s, and this is from space from the USA, and now let's imagine a trident in Peter from the Barents Sea or the North Atlantic?

                      since the reaction time is limited by the flight time, accordingly you need to look at the speed of arrival of the yabp, since this is not a retaliatory strike and the destruction of the attack will not slow down the IMHO reaction

        Why would the air be more powerful? AGM-86B with UBC left 300 units, which will not be enough even for one full salvo, carriers older than 20 30 years. I don’t take V-2 into account, with his nuclear ironing the crews can only drink sake before the last flight. We have carriers that are younger, and the Kyrgyz Republic is more long-range / modern. And the states do not have such a platform as the Tu-160 / -160M ​​at all. And no, B-1B is not its counterpart - it has an iron-free status. Yes, and there are less than a dozen of them combat-ready. Naval - controversial, especially given the gradual renewal of carriers in the Navy and the death of START

          "The B-1B is not its counterpart - it has an iron-free status" - to return it to its nuclear status, you only need an order from the US Secretary of Defense. It will not take long to restore the wiring for nuclear bombs (if they were removed at all), and new air-launched nuclear missiles are already being developed. The actual almost complete rejection of air-launched nuclear cruise missiles and the elimination of the SAC in the 90s is not because of weakness, but because of the huge fleet of cruisers and destroyers from the Tomahawk CD, and the post-perestroika detente of international relations.

                  Yes, where the air defense is suppressed, they will be able to drop the B61-2 "on the fly." This was also foreseen.

              If a ballistic missile strike against China from the territory of the United States, then they fly over us.
              If a strike from SSBNs (south or east), then not above us.

      "The United States has nothing against Russian bombing with X-32, X-555, X-55, X-102 missiles and is defenseless against the Daggers and Zircons (one Vanguard is worth it!)."
      Well, let's figure it out. Kh-32 - range up to 1000 km, carrier Tu-22m3. As it is difficult for the carrier to fly to the launch line to the foe.
      The Kh-555 is not nuclear. X-55 - easily detected by AWACS aircraft and the range is by no means intercontinental - enemy fighters will shoot down the carriers long before the launch line. The X-102 is better, but also by no means a prodigy. To hit Los Angeles - the carrier needs to fly at least 1000 km. over neutral waters, which is fraught with ...
      The USA is defenseless in front of the Daggers - but who will fly to the USA with the Dagger? "Zircon" - but so far it is not, and it is necessary to look, theoretically THAAD should take it. As a nuclear deterrent, Bulava is much better.
      "The US cannot oppose the Petrels and Poseidons." - they are not yet available. And given their cost and dubious effectiveness - they are not needed even in FIG - the US does not have a global missile defense system, to overcome which they are created. But to create a system of protection against them is much easier than against "Yars" and "Bulavs".
      "Vanguard" what is it worth! "-" Vanguard "is expensive, no doubt. no less difficult than one “Vanguard.” For “Topols”, “Yars” and “Bulavs” it is too big and heavy.
      However, the United States does not have a global ballistic missile defense system, and it is impossible to create it in the next decade, Obama just bluffed.
      So there is nothing better than the good old ICBMs and SLBMs. And it is happiness for the world that the Yankees cannot do anything against ours, and we against theirs ballistic missiles.

    ALL who have a nuclear arsenal will get into the nuclear armageddean. And there, the Far East or only China will not do. And it is necessary to consider nuclear exchange not only from the side of a banal exchange. On the territory of the states of conflict there are nuclear power plants and dams and laboratories with viruses, and burial grounds and chemical enterprises, etc. ... that is, we are talking about the fact that most of the planet will be polluted, if not all. And at the same time, few people think that there will be a third party to the conflict - the planet itself. And if someone, in this situation, naively believes that the Earth will calmly watch how it is hammered from all sides by nuclear missiles and bombs, he is deeply mistaken. And the planet has opportunities much more terrible than a nuclear arsenal.

    American Serdyukov again gave slag to the mountain. And in what incubator they grow such ideas. The American silo-based ICBMs have long worked out their resources, there is no replacement for them. As it turned out, they were sitting on the remotes, the dumbfounded attendants, the finished feminists are gaining submarines, and now they have from this the main headache. And it's not about combat readiness, but about latrines and separate showers. And this one is about the nuclear triad ...

    Let's be honest, of the triad, only the marine component is the best in the world. Old Minetmen with 1 head in light mines are just slag. And from aviation, in fact, only the ancient B-52 with old missiles (B-2 with free-falling bonbs is just a laugh).
    In general, there is parity with us ... Although the Vanguard with Poseidon and Petrel are hinting ...

    Yes, they probably haven’t realized what a pig they were planted by ours, with the introduction of the S-500 complex, capable of intercepting their Trident 2. Almost at once leveling their entire submarine fleet (striking power), and in fact their entire nuclear triad)))).
    Think about it - we can now repel (shoot down) their massive nuclear attack, but they absolutely do not.
    This is the balance of power in the world now))))

    Yes, of course, they planted a pig with a non-existent complex. Interception of an intercontinental missile with an operational tactical missile defense system is cool. The grass must have been from the journalists

    Where did the firewood get to work on ICBMs if possible? Not, if they come close for a dagger strike on a shallow one, then maybe probably, but I don't think so

    From here:
    "The new generation S-500 Prometheus anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) will be able to hit all types of ballistic missiles and warheads," said Sergei Druzin, First Deputy General Designer of the Almaz-Antey VKO Concern.

    I don't know who suffered the blizzard - journalists or Sergey Druzin - but it's a terrible blizzard. In the S-400 form factor and intercept intercontinental aircraft? Even the more massive and specialized missiles of the S-300V complex cannot intercept ICBMs, while the S-500 supersystem can. True, how is it capable of intercepting a target if it has an altitude reach of 200 km, and the BB will go at an altitude of 400-600

    Quote: lucul
    S-500 is new to Putin.

    Yes, even Ivanov-Petrov-Sidorov. If the system is not designed for such interception that at least someone else will be new - it doesn't matter

    Quote: lucul
    Does an anti-missile need to fly 11 km like an ICBM? )))

    But not 600 km, like the S-500 system

    Quote: 5-9
    S-500 rather SM3 + SM6 in one bottle only better and without the idiotic kinetic interception scheme

    Nobody knows what the S = 500 is and how it differs from the S-400. The mass-dimensional and range-speed parameters of interceptor missiles are not known either.
    As for kinetic interception, if you believe our open sources, then on the new systems they are going to switch to kinetic interception, especially in the context of missile defense

    The United States has nothing against Russian bombing with X-32, X-555, X-55, X-102 missiles and is defenseless against the Daggers and Zircons (one Vanguard is worth it!).
    The United States cannot oppose the Petrels and Poseidons, and we must not forget that the ancient Voivode is about to be replaced by Sarmat, in whose squad there is a whole horde of Yars with Maces at the ready in Sinev and on the Liners.

    - And what. The X-32 has already become intercontinental or has appeared in service with the TU-95 ????
    - Non-nuclear X-555 - are the Americans afraid of it too ???
    - X-55 and X-102. Both are subsonic, and if they are used, then only for "cleanup" in the 2-3 echelon
    - And to America "Daggers will teleport to launch at a distance of 1000 km from the coast ???
    - Stormcloak and Poseidon are not yet known and it is not known if they will or will turn out to be stillborn weapons systems
    - Just about replaced? This is when there was NO ONE start of the SARMAT ??? Oh well
    - Zircon was launched only once at a distance of 500 km, and already we threaten them with "Zircon"

    You are absolutely right, Dmitry !. It has always been. The “trick” with bombers at the air parade in Tushino in the 50s led the Americans to start talking about a “lag” in the bombers. As a result, more than 700 B-52s were made, while the number of Soviet strategists was several times smaller
    Regular demonstrations at the parade on Red Square of missile systems, some of which were ordinary mock-ups and did not reach the series, led the Americans to talk about the backlog of missiles. They threw a lot of money on this and as a result we had to catch up with them.
    So with this performance. Most likely they would like to receive a lot and at once, but alas. all this money is extended for a decade. And they would like everything at once

    No, this is not a failure, but a purely PR move to show that America is as strong as before. And rather, not even for the "old" allies, but for the "recruits" ... The old understand that superiority in the triad could be achieved at the level of 50-70 years of the last century. Now they have parity with Russia. And others - others their triad really surpasses. But the main thing is sometimes the lack of understanding in the statements. Them. the American triad really surpasses the triad of the PRC, and all other nuclear countries ... So, "without agreeing" on the main thing, he nevertheless told the truth laughing
    As for ideas, developments and technologies - all this to one degree or another is. It’s stupid to think that Americans have a complete failure with this

      “Now they have parity with Russia.” - uh, is it really parity? The most invulnerable part of the strategic nuclear forces - the SLBM - the Yankees have clearly better and more. and they have an order of magnitude more sea-based Tomahawks than our sea-based and air-based missiles (for some reason, all the couch experts have forgotten about sea-based missiles), Yars and Topol are light missiles, no better than the Minutemans. ... "Voevods" and UR-100N UTTKh have long gone to rest, and their mines are vulnerable. However, 100% parity is not needed - the ability to deliver such a blow to the enemy that "the nation doesn’t have enough bulldozers to rake corpses on the streets of the cities" is enough - and peace is guaranteed throughout the world.

    In this case, the strategic triad does not take into account the Tomahawks, which have not been in the nuclear version for 15 years already. And the parity in terms of carriers and charges, in principle, is maintained thanks to the START-3 treaty (which many haut)
