"Interceptors will not cope with nuclear missiles on the marching sector": the US predicts the penetration of ICBMs through the defensive perimeter

Retired American generals criticized the existing air defense system of the United States, believing that it was not able to block a nuclear attack even from an adversary such as the DPRK.

A recent report from the think tank RAND indicates that Pyongyang has 50 nuclear warheads, with more than 2027 by 200. By this time, the DPRK will have several dozen ICBMs in addition to several hundred shorter-range ballistic missiles.



In this regard, Major Generals Punch Moulton and Francis Mahon call for the creation of a "reliable multi-tiered missile defense system", which will become a mechanism for "deterring the enemy, inspiring him with doubt and alarm":

Today, our defense relies on a ground-based cruise missile defense system [ICBM] (GMD) and its 44 interceptor missiles. But the interceptors are unable to cope with the threats by 2027, when nuclear missiles on the march sections will move at more impressive speeds.



Launch of the Hwasong-14 ICBM, DPRK


Therefore, they propose to speed up the creation of new NGI interceptors and increase their number. However, according to the generals, one should not rely only on them: as it is predicted, the defensive perimeter of the one-echelon missile defense system will not be able to stop the penetration of ICBMs:

We need the ability to re-engage in the event that GMD interceptors fail to cope with the threat. The development of a multi-tiered defense is a vital strategy for our country.

In organizing the second echelon of missile defense, they pin their hopes on the SM-3 Block 2A missile, which, according to the developer, was able to intercept ICBMs.

For timely detection of threats, the generals propose not to be limited to ground-based means, launching tracking systems ("sensor architecture") into space, which should not only observe the movement of ICBMs, but also act as one of the fire control segments for them.

America needs a powerful and reliable multi-level missile defense system to deter and, if necessary, defeat North Korean missiles [in their places of deployment]

- the generals conclude.

      They are talking about the DPRK like this, provided that Korea has neither hypersound, nor maneuvering warheads ...
      considering that it is not in a position to block a nuclear strike even from such an adversary as the DPRK.
      Why show off then? From contracts come, like we are not afraid of anyone, we are crazy. :))

      And we are girls between us, so to speak, mutual destruction, but others are threatened with destruction and the presence of strategic weapons is vital ... although vryatli one of them will attack the states. Regional nuclear war is much more real because of the conflicts of just such countries

            Did they tell you this in secret? Because in the state drug traffic, so far only the Russian Foreign Ministry was caught by the hand, exporting 400 kg of cocaine from the Argentine embassy on Patrushev's plane. Have you forgotten this international scandal?

    Yeah ... the cartoon is impressive ... especially the constantly working 2-component! adjustment motors ... everywhere monopropant is used good The trajectory of a non-maneuvering warhead can be calculated in the transatmospheric sector almost to a micron, a good guidance system is demonstrated laughing which needs constant adjustment.

        Here in the Crimean belief, but about what I mentioned, the bullet most likely hit another at its end ... it is clearly evident that the energy was not even enough to pierce. You don't even need to watch the demolition ranch with Matt to understand ... the energy of the bullets in the first, which, in fact, are still being produced right now, is very high and pierces 10-15mm of steel

                Here the problem is most likely not that the event happened, but that, in theory, no one needs searches. Because it has no practical meaning, only when excavating on battlefields, as an indirect one.

      I don’t understand at all ... they say that a maneuvering warhead among false ones unmasks itself. Is there any difficulty in making false ones also maneuvering? Such a system, in my opinion, completely neutralizes the capabilities of any air defense. After all, the probability of hitting everyone, even with a 100% probability of interception, requires the presence of the same number of interceptor missiles. Those. with 400 carriers and the presence of even 3 false ones on average, 1600 interceptors are needed. Yes, false targets are of course easier, but as we know, fluff and weight in a vacuum fall at the same time and the difference will be noticeable only when the warheads enter the atmosphere, when ~ 20-30 seconds remain before the target is hit

        The military believes that the potential for a breakthrough in the current systems corresponds to the tasks set ... so there is nothing to fence in the garden.
        If / when the moment comes when the countermeasures systems will effectively neutralize the threat, the strike systems will be modernized, replaced ...
        This is a constant "competition" ... alas, alas, the stakes are too high in this confrontation.

          Such systems were tested in the middle of the last century due to the imperfection of guidance systems. Remember even our K operations. And the Americans EMNIP 450kt rushed ... knocked out all the electronics in a noticeable radius. After that, the enthusiasm dropped and right now, for example, everything is based on kinetic direct impact.

              Of course I can raise the information, but EMNIP is exactly as an anti-missile one. The impact on the warhead was studied. But in the end, the systems did not spread, because damaging the warhead, which is designed to move in plasma with temperatures of a couple of thousand degrees (speed of almost 10 km / s), proved to be ineffective. The main effect is a neutron flux, which has degraded the charge itself, or a full detonator

    Something RAND is pushing nonsense. Israel, India, Pakistan received nuclear weapons a long time ago, but not all of them are capable of 200 warheads today. China is credited with 450, and the DPRK is just leaps and bounds. Yes, ICBMs agree, but shorter-range missiles have been there for a long time for a thousand, not hundreds. And yes, their air defense-missile defense system is weak in comparison with military expenditures. In general, I think this is another attack on Fu-35 with the aim of redistributing financial flows.

    Duc they could not cope without nuclear engines) On the marching section to get to the missiles starting from somewhere in the Urals, while in the United States ?! Shooting from their territory ?! This is pretty bad fantasy, there won't be enough flight time for anything, what kind of strange idea is this? And even more so, missiles cannot be shot down on a ballistic trajectory along a dog's curve.
    In general, all this American missile defense system "to defend the territory of the United States" is one big deception of voters, as is customary in them (and now in our country). In principle, it is impossible to defend the territory of your country in a nuclear war. Pointless chatter.

    Now it is clear why Trump played back in the verbal battle with Kim Jong-un, even by adjusting the AUG - he was scared. But seriously, there is an excellent solution that does not require financial costs - treat others as yourself, do not threaten, do not interfere in internal affairs and you will live in peace. But unfortunately this is not about the Americans.

      The capitalist economy is possible only and exclusively in two cases. With an expanding market, and with robbery. The market is limited by the planet, there is nowhere to expand.

    My knowledge is at the level of a teapot. When the so-called "bus" parts with warheads? Now it is clear why ours tested false targets based on polymers, blew such a hundred polyethylene bags in space, they are tortured to get into real warheads ... Yes, and they wrote about YARS, that it has a steep spacewalk. It looks like when our rocket leaves the territory of our country in space, the Americans also need to find warheads in plastic bags. But the question about Kura, when they shoot at it a photo of the sea, and someone saw pictures of Chizha ? bully
