"Russian superweapons can change the balance of power in the Arctic": Denmark fears the "Dagger" missile

Russia can effortlessly destroy the Thule base radar by striking Denmark and NATO countries. For this it has a "superweapon" - the new Dagger missile, which is changing the entire balance of power in the Arctic region. This is the conclusion reached by the author of an article published in the Danish edition of Berlingske.


In his article, Emil Rottböll refers to the opinion of the military analyst of the Danish Defense Academy, Lieutenant Commander Anders Puck Nielsen, who stated that the Dagger missile was new weapons Russia, which the United States needs to find a counterbalance in Greenland. In his opinion, one Russian missile can destroy the Thule radar station, which is of great importance for NATO.

Thule radars are part of a missile shield, and in case of war, the Russians will definitely want to destroy them. And now they are practically not protected in any way, so the Americans have new tasks in Greenland.

- quotes the author of the words of a military analyst.

Anders Puck Nielsen also draws attention to the fact that the new missile is super-fast and leaves very little time for reaction in the event of a military conflict between the West and Russia.

At the moment, the situation is quite tense, there is a risk that erroneous conclusions will be drawn, something will go wrong and provoke an escalation

- the author writes.

The most likely region for conflict, despite claims that Russia is targeting the Baltics and Poland, is the Arctic, where Russia has many interests. The Russian army has a very strong position in this region, and the international community is hardly represented there.

If the US really starts sending warships to the Northern Sea Route to show that this is not about Russia's internal waters, (...) Russians will perceive this as an extreme violation of their sovereignty, and the situation could spiral out of control

- says the Danish military analyst.

Thus, Rottböll writes, Russia has military power in the Arctic and a missile capable of striking Denmark and NATO. The likelihood of a military conflict, in his opinion, is very high.

      Why not? Global warming and all that, there will be a green land again) It is only 3500 km to Washington in a straight line, if it is easier to impose a base somewhere in the Caribbean or South America, then it will not be easy to impose a base in Greenland, and the Arctic is familiar to us. Patrol icebreakers are under construction. And Denmark in a stall, so that they will not be bothered in the future with all sorts of permits and spawning of cod. Greenlandianash as compensation for damage and how it is fashionable in the West to consider it because of the "lost profits" in connection with SP2 over100500 billion.

      so they are not worried about Greenland, but about the fact that when they, led by the United States, go to wrest the NSR from Russia, their radar will suffer during the response of the Russian army.

    The logic of the Western man in the street. The Russian threat to Denmark, or rather to the American locator in the country, was noticed, but they categorically do not want to notice the actions of NATO allies in the region

      They do not want to notice a direct connection between the presence of the radar and the threat of its destruction.
      There would be no radar and there would be nothing to worry about. bully

    Sick in the head, finally. there is no anti-missile shield and there won't be! Leaky sieve. Moreover, ANYONE DOES NOT have an ABSOLUTE shield! And then there is nothing to talk about, let them watch the cartoon with the cat Leopold, because what is the correct phrase the cat said "Let's live in peace!"

      So if it is not foreseen why should Russia spend huge money on the creation of new types of weapons? Nothing lasts forever under the sun! And our nuclear weapons including

        It is also necessary to be protected from "accidental" flights, then, beyond the hill, they always cherish the dream of a sudden, disarming strike, but it can only be organized close up and it will not be so massive, and the carriers of such weapons will be quite accessible to our weapons.
        In general, situations can be different and it will never be superfluous to have your own trump card up your sleeve. The combination of defense and strike means is such a trump card.

    "Russian superweapons can change the balance of power in the Arctic"

    The Danes have strange conclusions. One gets the impression that if they were able to slow down SP-2, then the "balance of power in the Arctic" was still in their favor. Are they beginning to see clearly?

    “Russian superweapons are capable of exchange balance of power in the Arctic ": Denmark fears the" Dagger "missile
    Why "change"? I guess ALREADY CHANGED. Who else has similar modern weapons and a main base. No wonder the merikatos raised howl and continue to howl. They remained far behind the Russian Federation, and when they catch up - the question. But we do not stand still, we are improving. So it's not for nothing that they scratch their turnips in that kingdom. laughing

    Guys can leave a radar for them in Tula. There is a lot of material that "excellent students of combat capitalist training" are sent there. There is nowhere else, just a magic kick in the ass from the Air Force
    . Or all the same, we will bomb if not removed? drinks

    striking a blow to Denmark and NATO countries .... The likelihood of a military conflict, in his opinion, is very high.
    So it may not be worth bringing to this by constantly provoking Russia, crap it, incl. economically (Denmark and "SP-2") and then you will be happy. So no, you don't live peacefully, playful little hands itch and wait for them to be hit. Apparently, the Danes have not gone far from the Poles and Balts in an attempt to realize their petty, nasty plans.

    Denmark is not "Daggers" should be feared! If in the 60s of the 20th century it was announced that 2 times 50 Mgt each, and Ireland becomes the western coast of the English Channel, then Denmark is enough 1 time to expand the straits leading from the Baltic to the North Sea ... So that the Baltic Fleet did not bother with the problem of free access to the vastness of the ocean.

      What a bloodthirsty you! I would suggest simply expanding the Datsk straits up to 200t km. that's all. And let the Danes live wherever they want, liberal European democracy prohibits personal infringement.

    It's funny. This rocket launches and accelerates very slowly, Very, very slowly. The speed will obviously be no more than 1,5 km per second, maybe in the final section it will accelerate to two kilometers per second from a height of 50 km. Such bullshit with outdated missile technologies does not scare the enemy.
