The US Navy conducted unsuccessful tests of the SM-6 missile system Aegis

66

The next tests of the American shipborne system Aegis using SM-6 anti-aircraft missiles ended in failure. As stated in the widespread statement of the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency, the anti-missile systems were unable to intercept the targets.

The tests reportedly handled the interception of enemy ballistic missiles at the end of the flight. The test was attended by: a US Navy ship, which is not called and the specialists of the US Defense Ministry's missile defense agency. It was assumed that the Aegis complex would intercept two targets using the latest version of the Standard Missile-6 Dual II anti-aircraft missile of the air defense / missile defense system.



To test the US Navy made two missile salvos with "standard" weapons, but the anti-aircraft missiles could not intercept the target. The reasons for this result are not named, the Navy and the missile defense agency have begun a joint review, during which they will analyze the results and try to establish the "problem" of the failure.

The RIM-174 / SM-6 (Standard ERAM) long-range anti-aircraft guided missile is used as a means of air defense for surface ships against attacks by cruise missiles, aircraft, helicopters and drones. The first versions of the missile began to be delivered to the US Navy in 2015.

It is part of the armament of the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers equipped with the Aegis system. The SM-6 is one of the key components of a promising US Navy concept called the Naval Integrated Fire Control-Counter Air (NIFC-CA).

      Yes, the time and place of the launch of the ballistic missile is known! And two SM6 anti-aircraft missiles, in milk like a pretty penny. Maybe the radio beacon refused on the ICBM? Hollywood should have been entrusted with the tests. Interestingly, Russia was notified about the tests, it seems they should! good And what percentage of hits, every other time?

      I think that commentators from one hot country on BV will quickly explain the situation. Yesterday, to the article about the Russian S-500, which was "a blow to the prestige of the United States" (from the article), some tried to explain that this is not entirely true, and that the Americans are not worse, if not even better.

        Of course there is, everything is fine with them, do not worry so much. Experiencing new systems and that they are not working well is normal. It's okay to report it, investigate it, and fix it.
        Then there are real hostilities, which are already giving harsh marks. There is no longer silence about the problems, the commission cannot be bribed.

        Another question worries me. That was the unsuccessful start of the caliber. Why was he silenced and what are the results of the investigation?

          Do you think they will be reported to the press? And I understand that not everything is so rosy here either, but I don’t understand why you worship any other weapon, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Israel, America, etc. And if something “didn’t work” there, run to protect them laying out our jambs (which yes, there are). But if our weapons are hated, then you nod approvingly and there are more options.

            It is important to me that our weapons are the best. Really the best, not in propaganda materials. It can protect my life and my family. For this you need to criticize, not write odes.
            The Russian military-industrial complex lags behind the Western and Chinese ones, and every year more and more. The days of the USSR have passed, then we were equal. In what it is better, in what it is worse. Now the gap is everywhere, in some cases by 1-2 generations. We are saved only by strategic nuclear forces and physical dimensions. Some kind of lousy merchant-peasant Turkey is launching into a series of weapons and equipment superior to ours. Azerbaijan's Army has weapons that are not available to us, Israel and the United States are simply leaders in almost all spheres, with an exorbitant technical level.
            Our Army is still Soviet. There is a minimum of new technology, the overwhelming majority is bad, cheap modernization of the old one. We send the same modernization for export many times better. They save money on our army and the lives of soldiers. And all the failures are hushed up or covered with propaganda nonsense.
            And the fact that I have some kind of admiration is your invention. I try to be objective. It's just that every year there is less and less good in the Russian military-industrial complex, reality is replaced by promises.

            About this trial and the test of Caliber, I have a single opinion:

              Only these tests are not "Caliber", but PU laughing ... The rocket itself was not there. Layout with rudders taken to the extreme position. That would not fly far. There was a similar video from Gorshkov's board. In general, bury you already this dead stewardess. lol

                Then my answer to you is that the Yankees, too, in this case, did not test a rocket, but a launcher, and shooting down a target was not the main task.
                the readiness of this anti-missile missile is scheduled for 2024. The already existing grouping of US ships with these missiles will give the Americans the opportunity to deliver a missile strike with impunity (with nuclear or 3-5 thousand cruise missiles and others in the usual design to preserve the white-fluffy image) and repel a retaliatory strike from our ICBMs.
                that's when we start singing.

                        First, you will understand the rules of the Russian language, then teach people with such an intelligent look. In stable combinations, colloquial speech and interjections, God is written with a lowercase letter (i.e., with a small letter). God with a capital (with a capital) is used when directly referring to the supreme being or referring to him in the context of religion. Without a religious context, God, once again, is written with a lowercase letter.

                The main thing on the topic is no messages at all. There are some interesting points here. Firstly, Standard Missile-6 Dual II is being actively tested, and secondly, work on twin targets is being worked out. The scenario of the exercise becomes more complicated, which means that the simpler ones have been worked out.

              Lousy Turkey? I can imagine how jarred you were before using this epithet. Do you think we all want to shout hooray, we are the best, we will win all? No, many of those who write here fully understand the reality that everything is not as rosy as they say to us at parades and individual events for demonstrations and delivery of equipment. But at least they do not write so many "odds" to any foreign power (listed above) and do not hayat everything of ours for any reason, in any conflict, even where we were far from fighting, and there was no air defense system as such, but the wasps fought with weapons of the 21st century, and this was almost the first such massive case. Naturally, M16 will be better than squeaks, and the British and other Spaniols won due to the best technology, cannons, gunpowder, Indians with spears and bows. But again, you have too much praise of the Western, and belittling all ours.
              Where are they better than us in Turkey? Drones? So far, yes, a beautiful advertisement for reconciliation, and then? Tanks? Aviation? Air defense? Space? In no area is it better. And yes, they have access, like a NATO country, to most Western technologies, and we have sanctions on everything). What did Turkey itself do specifically? Very little.

                Well, let's just look at your parities a little closer in missiles, I do not argue, in aviation there are issues with combat aviation, it is clear, but in the auxiliary, tankers, specialized reconnaissance, AWACS, unmanned aerial vehicles, there is no parity, the times of air carousels have sunk into oblivion. I argue. Artillery also raises questions, but how are things going with reconnaissance and fire adjustment if there are no above listed UAVs, and the recent conflict in Karabakh kept saying that it’s not enough to have good artillery without reconnaissance and adjustment equipment. I’m not special with helicopters here, but I’m I think that the lag is also there, although it may not be so critical.

And my advice to you is to read the comments carefully, otherwise it turns out as in the fairy tale about Thomas and Erem.

                          Are you getting to the bottom of the numbers now? LOL. Everything is clear, there is nothing to say in essence, you start digging into words and numbers.

                          I am always amazed by people who blame their mistakes on others, you are not the first and not the last. And if I write about today's realities, and my opponent about the past years, and still demands that I have all this with a lot for the truth. Well, for your vanity, I can agree that 40 years ago, namely in the Fonckle and Lebanese conflict, 82 years ago there were air merry-go-rounds.

                          what's the difference 40 years or 30 years. It doesn't matter at all. There will always be close maneuvering combat. Technology will never give a 100% chance of hitting a target.

            Do you think they will be reported to the press? And I understand that not everything is so rosy here either, but I don't understand, why do you worship any other weapon, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Israel, America, etc.

          Another question worries me. That was the unsuccessful start of the caliber.

          Don't worry. Mockups, they should not fly far. Throwing tests were carried out regularly. There is nothing to investigate there.

            It is important to me that our weapons are the best.
            Judging by your ALL posts - it is important for you to shit once again EVERYTHING Russian, and do not bother to deny yourself. angry

          Of course there is, everything is fine with them,

          If everything was fine with them, they would not have fenced in their missile defense system, which knocks down ICBM missiles not at the final section of the trajectory, like ours, but on primary section of the trajectory, because in the final section they cannot yet shoot down, which was demonstrated by these tests.
          And the adoption of the S-500, in fact, will allow Russia to win the Third World War.
          The S-500 will shoot down American ICBMs at high altitude, and our ICBMs will plow and glaze the entire Western world with impunity.
          That's the whole alignment before the meeting between Putin and Biden.

      Yeah, now Yankee fans will come and prove, first of all, to themselves that this is another case, but of course, Russia is guilty of everything, and therefore the Yankees were obliged to introduce new sanctions against our country yesterday. Preventively, so to speak. ..

      So, this is not the MLRS rackets from Hamas to miss, here already parts of New York could get bad in the event of a real war. Oh yes, there are missiles with multiple warheads, and probably with trompe l'oeil, I doubt that there were such missiles at the exercises.

      Baltun is a godsend for a spy, they took away a terrible military secret! So "Karelia" can take control of ICBMs or SM6s, or maybe all together. Now you won't find statistics on test failures. Hawaii has Karelia, Hawaii doesn't have everything past Karelia, you can cut it on the ICBM a radio beacon and a miracle all fell! And from the first time! hi drinks

      Of course there is, everything is fine with them, do not worry so much. Experiencing new systems and that they are not working well is normal. It's okay to report it, investigate it, and fix it.
      Then there are real hostilities, which are already giving harsh marks. There is no longer silence about the problems, the commission cannot be bribed.

      Another question worries me. That was the unsuccessful start of the caliber. Why was he silenced and what are the results of the investigation?

      How was he silenced when there is a video?
      Or do you want to be reported to you on the reasons and measures developed?

      Come on, they will refine it and achieve an acceptable, in their opinion, accuracy ... all the same, striking means develop faster and absolutely no one can defend themselves.
