The construction of the Aegis missile defense system in Poland is nearing completion

39

According to Vice Admiral John Hill, director of the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA), the construction of the Aegis missile defense system in Poland, which is being carried out in the village of Redzikowo, is nearing completion. Outwardly, it looks ready for operation, but internal work is still ongoing.


Delays in the construction of the Aegis Ashore ground-based missile defense system in Poland took about four years. Now the MDA and the US Army Corps of Engineers are trying to somehow make up for lost time.

At the moment, the US defense agency MDA has the only operating ground-based missile defense system Aegis Ashore in Europe, located in Deveselu (Romania) since 2016.


The second was going to be promptly erected in Poland by 2018. After reassessing the situation, MDA realized that the facility would not be put into operation until 2022 at the earliest.

When you go to a country like Poland and enter into contracts for military construction, you do not have full control over this.

- Hill vaguely explained the reason for such a significant delay from the schedule yesterday at the McAleese & Associates defense conference in Washington.

A Polish contractor was appointed as the culprit, who was entrusted with the construction work.

The new complex will be included in the European missile defense system. It includes the already mentioned facility in Romania, the AN / TPY-2 radar in Turkey and the Aegis radar ships based at the Rota naval base (Spain). Initially, it was stated that all this was intended to protect Europe from Iran.


But Russian defense experts are concerned about the proximity to our borders of the Polish and operating Romanian complexes under construction. And this concern has been expressed for years. The fact is that their MK41 launchers can be used not only to launch anti-missiles when intercepting and destroying air targets, but also to strike at the territory of the Russian Federation with Tomahawk cruise missiles. The United States has said that Russia's concerns are "groundless."

      Israeli "experience" would be handy.

        Zhirik prophesied this, the last: 22.02.22/8/XNUMX, which sometimes becomes scary. Maybe that's why I injected myself with XNUMX doses, so that I could lie in someone until everything rubs off.

          Not at all. Zhirik was simply pathologically afraid of getting sick. And it's how it came out.
          Sorry old man. For all his stupidity, he often said the right things. At least live a little longer.

            And although I have always treated him ... without respect, and I am not his supporter.
            But I definitely don't want him dead.
            But the "labeled creature" is the opposite.
            Volfych let him live, but let the humpback die.

              Gluing flippers to the labeled is deliverance. Let him live for a long time and decompose alive, this duck is sorry for death. Sorry for my bloodlust.
              And I am not a fan of Zhirinovsky either. But without him, the 90s would have been completely gloomy)))
              And, we must pay tribute, since no one could organize the work of his cells in the field. Neither communists, nor EdRo ..
              The Liberal Democratic Party actually worked for some time for the people on the ground. They provided free legal services, punched through any rubble for roads .. I understand, a trifle. But no one else even moved.

        Ouch! on tests... He took it and flew away... Himself... Well, the AI ​​was not finalized, we forbade it, we installed blocks from Kaspersky, but he bypassed them and chose the target himself. Now, if you didn’t squirm like that in Poland, then he ... He left for Romania repeat

    With any launch from these bases, immediate destruction and warning. Once we will determine whether Iran is there or Zimbabwe is threatened by the Americans. And most importantly, the Poles and Romanians convincingly warn

        The article says that the Americans say that they are protecting Iran. Well then, Iraq, Iran, Palestine, Israel should be asked for help. It is necessary that a gift arrive from that area or from the Mediterranean

    "Zircon" has already been put into production, but they are still testing it! Can test on psheks and Romanians? The rocket is not reflected on the radar. And they will howl - answer in the Ukrainian style - "... your air conditioner exploded there!"

        I'm not going to spank both of them, I understand the attempt to joke. But no more. Not that reason. Please.
        The phrase about the "Donetsk air conditioner" for me is a symbol of all the cynicism of the killers of the civilian population of Donbass.

            I don't see any pleasure in it. And they threw you without me. And you can't get used to it. You can't let your soul rot. Death should not become a statistic.
            The death of innocent people in the 14th and in the 22nd is the same. And he wants revenge.

      And they will howl - answer in the Ukrainian style - "... your air conditioner exploded there!"
      And refer to the Ukrainians. They say that many years ago, back in the Donbass, they warned about the explosiveness of air conditioning systems.

    Stop fooling Russia with biolaboratories and dual-use complexes. If this is a missile defense system, you need to test it with Zircon or Dagger, and henceforth you don’t need to drag any crap to the borders of Russia ...

      Poland is begging for another partition. But we don’t need this piece of Poland for nothing. But you can’t give it entirely to the Germans either. Some eternal hemorrhoid.

        Therefore, it is worth making a control and trail strip from Poland between us and the Germans. Very wide band.

      I would not take it to the EAEU now. All countries, although not without problems and not in everything, love Russia, but at least strive for their own well-being. (in some places to the well-being of the elites, but still) And 404, for 30 years, she did not strive to create her own prosperous state, but only to harm her neighbor. Nasru in his hut, but in Russia it will stink. We got ours. Sanitary and epidemiological supervision from the department of Shoigu, came to clean your sewer.

      Judging by what they built there, they plundered more. A comment where the operator casually mentions 7 bodies, and sobs over yachts, cars, motorcycles, this is just something. This is where the "caliber" is not needed, there are no those who need to be pitied. These and "by area" could be.

    Any attempt by the United States to place weapons near the Russian Federation now needs to be answered ... at least in the same way. And those who underlie the United States, use them as consumables without any pity.
    I really hope that the times are gone, when in Russia the main events of the week were ocean-scale oligarchic orgies and stinky boobs-pussies of all sorts of moral freaks in glossy magazines right on the front pages.
    Self-fucking songs are also remembered now ... in a different light. Most of all, in the end, it turned out to be a pity for the time spent on them.
    Young people today should take note of this note. Growing up as a degenerate at a young age is easy. But then life inevitably becomes unbearable and hopeless, like a public toilet pit.
    So less shitty songs, especially American ones, and more things that are useful for everyone else, and life will get better. It will be better than it was.

    Unclear. But they hang all the time. One arrives and the other leaves. They fly from Spain, Germany, England. Over the World Cup Globalhawk hung out. Arrived from Sicily. In general, over Poland the mover is not sour. And Blackhawks and C-130s. England, Canada, states. Blackhawk flew over Romania at the World Cup today, spinning. Anti-submarine or what? It looks like the war will really be until the last Ukrainian.

    After the end of the operation in ruins, with Putin's warning, the psheks with hoes themselves will destroy the Aegis ... if only not to get Caliber to the full head ... and this is without hatred! After the operation in ruins, the plant in Reutov will be overloaded with Caliber orders from both the RF Armed Forces and all our allies!
