US intends to "contain Russia" with sea-launched cruise missiles

The United States intends to put on alert sea-launched cruise missiles with nuclear warheads. The deployment of such missiles is necessary to deter Russia, the US Department of Defense said in a statement.


The US military said that the last sea-based nuclear cruise missile was removed from combat duty in 2010. At the same time, according to the Pentagon, Russia is continuing "a comprehensive program to modernize and expand the theater of operations for low-power and tactical nuclear weapons."

The development and deployment of sea-based nuclear cruise missiles is essential to contain Russia. (...) More worryingly, Russian doctrine provides for the use of these nuclear capabilities during the conflict

- said in a statement.

Thus, according to the Pentagon, the deployment of sea-launched cruise missiles with nuclear warheads will "give an answer" to US rivals with nuclear weapons.

Recall that the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF Treaty) ceased to exist on August 2, 2019 after the United States left it. At present, the START-3 treaty is also under threat of termination; Washington, under various pretexts, is delaying its signing. There is a possibility that the contract will not be extended.

            The United States intends to put on alert sea-launched cruise missiles with nuclear warheads.

            Something tells me that the United States already has sea-based cruise missiles with nuclear warheads on alert here and there.
            After all, the Pentagon always at first secretly does, then Washington allegedly declares its "intentions" - and soon the US will unswervingly withdraw from the relevant treaties. And not vice versa!

          Well, of course. Juggernaut or, which is the same thing, Jagentacht is a Hindu god, I don't remember what exactly, but very important. His heavy statue was taken along the narrow streets of Indian cities (back in the XNUMXth century), and fanatics threw themselves under the wheels of a chariot. The dead went straight to heaven. But why do we need some foreign names? A good name, for example "Bulava". It's clear - to fuck in the head so that it was discouraging. "Voevoda" is also understandable. "Dagger" - no comment. "Poseidon" is the lord of the seas. "Barguzin" - as you know, moves the shaft. "Yars" - it is not clear what it is specifically. But a beautiful powerful combination of beeches, associations with "Yarilo", "Lynx" and "Bars". "Nullifier", in my opinion, sounds somewhat amorphous, inadvertently.

      They bombed Dresden, Hiroshima and Nagasaki for peaceful purposes. Nothing personal, pure business. Dresden is a business plan test experiment, whether one bomb will replace a thousand four-engined bombers. In addition, the experience of Stalingrad suggested to them that the ruins are easier to defend than the whole city, and they wanted to give the Germans a little help about the defense of Dresden. Here, on another thread, I criticized the Germans slightly for their bad behavior on our territory and compared them with the beating of Indians in the USA, but they tell me that I should not confuse the Germans with the Anglo-Saxons.
      But this is very difficult.
      There are practically no differences in behavior towards the civilian population. It is not in the tradition of neither one nor the other to deploy field kitchens to feed the starving population of the captured city. The mentality of the electorate is not the same. Write the name of your beloved mother on board the bomber - that's in our Anglo-Saxon language. All the dead are a gift to mom.

    Nevertheless, the United States has a lot to learn; playing the role of the world's policeman for 85 years is not so easy. Effective management, economics and prompt resolution of issues related to the national interests of the state are what we should strive for.

      And what can we learn from them? How to live on an island without wars on your territory? How to make money on world wars, taking mainly financial participation in them? How to use the money earned from these wars to make your currency the basis in international settlements? How to use full control over international trade to rule the world?

    On the basis of Poseidon, it is possible to make a carrier with nuclear cruise missiles. He will lie down somewhere near the United States and will wait for the command to launch the missiles.

    The Americans are systematically withdrawing from all bilateral security agreements with Russia. The return to NK and submarines of nuclear weapons, in addition to SLBMs, is an unpleasant call for Russia. The agreement has been in effect since the 90s.

    Russia will not remain in debt with such a step either. Another surprise is that the devil knows what is going on in the country and it is not yet known what this will eventually lead to, and they are all trying to restrain Russia. When in the American political elite there are mostly old senile people, then another cannot be expected.

    Think like a child, wake up, capital and politics rule the world. National interests are above all for the United States, it is they and their observance that allows the United States to remain the number one economy in the world. There is a lot to learn, the same unification of nuclear submarines (pr. 688 - Virginia, Ohio - Columbia) and compare it with our "zoo".

    There is no need for quotation marks, a police officer is never good or bad, he just fulfills his duties. Let's leave the United States, since they are such "bad people", let's take China. Does he also fit this definition? The same purposeful policy of the country's development, expansion of foreign markets, a tough policy of protecting national interests, effective management and economics, search for and obtaining missing technologies by any means, etc.

    Actually, the Pentagon first speaks and then does. It is the same with regard to new nuclear-powered missile launchers. They will be developed and they will use charges that are still stored in warehouses. Moreover, there is no need to leave the agreement. Marine contracts did not fall under any contracts. They were removed and deactivated by mutual agreement ...

And the tonnage - well, let's count. Russia - about 908 tons. USA - 1148 tons. Who has more? We habitually count almost the entire arsenal of Voevod, which we had and the UR-100N UUTKh. But alas ...

    Can. And shove them 200-300 pieces, no less. True, the dimensions of such cruise missiles will be 50-60 centimeters long and 5 cm in diameter ...
    What kind of cruise missiles, dear, are you going to shove into a case with a diameter of about 1,8 meters and a length of 6 meters (if you remove the thermonuclear charge). And how will he shoot them? From a depth of as much as 1 km ???

    There are not very many of them, hundreds of 3-4, but they are in storage

      Since they have started talking about CD with nuclear warheads, I do not think that they will limit themselves to this. Torpedoes and bombs on aircraft carriers will also return. Although, we always suspected that the Americans were a little cunning about air bombs and did not completely remove them from the AB arsenals. As it all becomes sour from all this.

        There is one more dangerous moment. The designated storage periods for old nuclear warheads (nuclear warheads), which were installed on the "Tomahawks", have long been out, their extension is very problematic and doubtful. This means that a new warhead will be made for the new cruise missile. Taking into account the technological realities and limitations, it will apparently be made on the basis of some already existing warhead. This means that the Americans will have a whole family of unified nuclear warheads with relatively small dimensions and weight, apparently with unified interfaces (within the existing approaches to the design of weapons in the United States, this is exactly what should be expected). The question arises: where else can they (without too much publicity, by the way) install such charges? This question is very serious, and it should be addressed to the appropriate specialists.
