The United States announced the development of a prototype medium-range missile

The United States has begun development of a prototype medium-range missile capable of striking moving targets both on land and in water. This is reported by Defense News with reference to the representative of the US Army Robin Mack.


According to a statement by a spokesman for the ground forces, the new missile will have to "fill in the gaps" in the spectrum of high-precision weapons long-range, in service with the United States. The decision to start this development was made based on the results of research in the field of strategic weapons.

(...) according to a study by the Army Futures Command think tank in New Mexico, both short-term and long-term strategies for investing in weapons development have been recommended that will allow it to catch up with competitors close to the United States

- said Robin Mack, without going into the details of the development of the new rocket.

Also, Mack did not indicate at what stage the development is and when the first tests may pass.

We will have medium-range missiles capable of sinking ships. We believe this is very, very important in relation to the means of restricting and denying access and maneuver that we may have to face

- General James McConville said earlier to the Army Chief of Staff.

US Special Representative for Arms Control Marshal Billingsley did not rule out the deployment of US ground-based intermediate and short-range missiles in the Asian region. The desire to deploy missiles in Asia in Washington is explained by the "threat of China."

    START is on the brink, now the RSD is planning to open the bastions. Everybody hopes to fight.

      In this case, indeed, the Chinese question and China's building up of its junks. And the reason is still in the obsolescence of the AUG due to Russian and less Chinese developments in anti-ship missiles, especially supersonic and hypersonic ones. In order for the AUG not to drive such missiles into the affected area, it should be possible to hit the enemy fleet with its own means. Of course they will. The US military-industrial complex is a serious thing, but it is useless to catch up with us, especially since Poseidon is breathing out of the abyss there. Of course, they will make the Chinese in the race.

    If the US desire to deploy medium-range missiles in Asia comes true, then it would be fair for Russia to place medium-range missiles in Central America and the Caribbean. There are states there that will agree to this because they do not see the prospects for improving relations with Washington.

      Which state will agree?

      Cuba? Never.
      Cuba's course is still in blockade, for the return of all nationalized American property is America's only demand to lift the blockade. And the Cubans do not want to give it up, but negotiations are underway.
      Venezuela? Never. They have already been given to understand that they will be wiped off the face of the earth if they continue to play this role.
      They resisted, barely ...
      Almost by a thread.
      No wonder our planes were there to evacuate Maduro.
      Nicaragua, Honduras? Bolivia?

      Who will be, please answer, with justification ...

          Itit-batters ...
          How are you, ridiculous, with your Caliber ...
          icons have already been created ...
          The caliber is essentially an analogue of the 40-year-old Tamaghawk ...
          Well, it would be fine to pray for a nuclear Grenade.
          So after all, you do not know anything about him, only about the glorious calibers, he repeats like ass after Carbonic power ...

          I explain in Russian.
          Most subsonic anti-ship cruise missiles have a launch range of up to 300 kilometers.
          With one single purpose - to ensure that the missile reaches the target in a reasonable time period so that the target does not have time to leave the range and angle of capture of the seeker of the guidance system.
          Yes, the mass of the warhead in the anti-ship version of the Caliber is usually a little less than half a ton, which in no way has a positive effect on the flight range.
          After they finally install a satellite communication channel on the anti-ship Caliber, and implement the target search mode in the square, and also implement the retargeting process, the range of the anti-ship Caliber will be announced at 600-700 km.

          The tactical caliber can really have a flight range of 1200 and 1500 and 2000 kilometers. Simply because his goal is stationary.
          She (the target) is not a wolf, she will not run away into the forest.
          And if you put a nuclear warhead weighing three times less, then this Caliber flies away and 2500 km.
          Because the load is less.
          And if you also increase the engine resource, and even put an additional fuel tank in the vacant volume (when replacing the warhead), then it will fly away by 4000.

          There is nothing new and nothing magical here.
          There is nothing "unmatched in the world" here.
          We are just repeating the 35-40 year old Tomahawk.

          And I’m sorry that such simple knowledge is not available to you, and from let’s just say completely not the most interesting weapon (that Tomahawk, that Caliber) made an icon for yourself.

        The North Koreans' launches of Kimskanders seem to hint that 800 kilometers is by no means the limit. According to some estimates, a 9M723 with a 100-kt warhead with an accuracy of "not Montparnasse, but Montmartre" can be launched at 2 thousand km

          Yes, there are no nuclear warheads for Iskander.
          All nuclear arsenals, all production are fully controlled by inspectors in accordance with the START-3 Treaty.
          They control our factories, our nuclear warhead storage facilities, our missile and bomb storage bases.
          We also completely control them.

      At first - "modernized" 9M723, 9M728, 9M729, then "Rubezh" can stop pretending to be ICBMs and begin testing and deployment, for Iskander it is possible to develop a two-stage 9M723. And I would not be surprised at all if this option has been in the store for a long time. Moreover, two-stage ballistic missiles were planned for the Volga. Everything has already been invented before us

        Technology is all there ..... with amendments, but the new solid / liquid fuel changes in the size of the rockets ..... the BG will change. I think both options will be useful. On the Far East IRBM with a range of 4-5 t.km. , and on the basis of Iskander up to 2t.km. Iskander's missile can and, simply, be made longer.

    If the US desire to deploy medium-range missiles in Asia comes true, then it would be fair for Russia to place medium-range missiles in Central America and the Caribbean. There are states there that will agree to this because they do not see the prospects for improving relations with Washington.

    The Americans will post it, there are no questions. But whether someone wants to place Russian missiles is very doubtful. Nicaragua - definitely not, Venezuela - there are more conversations and menacing "roars" in relation to the United States than real actions. Cuba - now they don't have Fidel, who was ready to go all-in. so the deployment of our missiles in Latin America is a wet dream and nothing more.

    There is such an expression: "He who has ears, let him hear." Even 2-3 years before our "benefit" in Syria, when "Calibers" were fired there from the Caspian Sea, "Caliber" was used at the exercises of the Caspian Naval Flotilla. And the commander announced that the anti-ship missile attack hit the target at a range of 375 km, and the tactical "Caliber" hit a ground target at the range at a distance of almost 1000 km. But this "passed" the opinions of our journalists and all sorts of different "experts". But when, two years later, they shot at 1500 km - a noise arose. Why make noise? After all, it is necessary to consider other sources of information, and not just "Wikipedia"

    Well, they didn’t report fuel to Iskander, its solid-state engines. And then once, and reported?

    An interesting look at rocketry. "nedolozhili" .... Or maybe it's all about the trajectory ???

    Are they wishful thinking again? If they are put into service, we will compare them with Iskander ... whose range is a big mystery ... now. wassat

    And there was no mystery and no. It is only necessary to calculate using the open data that is in relation to Iskander. That's all. And there will be no mysteries

    Yes, there are no nuclear warheads for Iskander.
    All nuclear arsenals, all production are fully controlled by inspectors in accordance with the START-3 Treaty.
    They control our factories, our nuclear warhead storage facilities, our missile and bomb storage bases.
    We also completely control them.

    You read the agreement.
    There may be many new and interesting things for you.

    You wrote very correctly that you need to read the contracts. There are many new and interesting things. But it is unlikely that you yourself have read these agreements. Otherwise, I beg your pardon, they did not write the stupidity that they wrote
    All nuclear arsenals, all production are fully controlled by inspectors in accordance with the START-3 Treaty.
    They control our factories, our nuclear warhead storage facilities, our missile and bomb storage bases.

    Never, under any agreements, nuclear arsenals are not controlled, let alone production. Moreover, when it comes to tactical weapons. Even with regard to strategic, we can only control the number of charges installed on the carriers. No more.
    And there are nuclear charges for Iskander ...

    No sooner had we left the INF Treaty than they began to test the missiles, probably an accident ............. laughing laughing wink

    They haven't started to experience anything yet. And it is not known when they will start.

    At first - "modernized" 9M723, 9M728, 9M729

    What for? Why are you not satisfied with the range of the same ballistic "Iskander"? not to mention the range of this complex's cruise missiles?

    Quote: Hermit21
    then "Rubezh" can stop pretending to be an ICBM

    Whether you like it or not, it had a range of over 6000 km when tested. That is, it is definitely an ICBM. Although, of course, with a strong desire, placing a heavy head on it can reduce its range from intercontinental to "medium" (more precisely "intermediate").

    Quote: Hermit21
    a two-stage 9M723 can be developed for Iskander. And I would not be surprised at all if this option has been in the store for a long time. Moreover, two-stage ballistic missiles were planned for the Volga. Everything has already been invented before us

    What for? Why reinvent the wheel when you can make it easier. What did you do with "Temp-2S" in due time?

    Well, it would be fine to pray for a nuclear Grenade.


    Thank you, enlightened, but we did not even know. KS-122 to your stern.
