Why do Americans need a missile defense base in Europe

43
Prior to the US withdrawal from the Treaty on the limitation of missile defense systems from 26 in May of 1972 of the year, which happened on 13 in June of 2002, this country could deploy missile defense facilities (bases of interceptor missiles) only on its territory, like radar stations to track ballistic targets and for their recognition, as well as for aiming and targeting weapons Missile defense Now these restrictions do not work, which the United States immediately took advantage of, coordinating with the governments of the Czech Republic and Poland the program of deploying a third European missile defense complex on their territory in addition to the two others being created in North Dakota and Alaska. The Americans dream of planning to intercept Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) on the upstream leg of their flight to the target, and not on the outgoing, as was possible before 13 June 2002 of the year.

From the territory of Russia, Russian ICBMs will fly in the ascending part of the flight trajectory with a slowdown until they reach an altitude of about 1000 km at a distance of up to 5000 km from the launch site. At the same time, their speed will gradually decrease as they climb from about 7 km / s to 4 – 5 km / s. And the speed of the GBI interceptor missile at the end of engine time can reach 7,5 km / s for the two-stage GBI-2 stage and 8,5 km / s for the three-stage GBI-3 stage. And there is no better way to intercept than on the catch-up course, since the rate of convergence will be in favor of the US missile defense system. That is why the United States is striving with its missile defense base to Central Europe and have serious intentions not to leave there under any circumstances.

What is the media silent about?

In publications on the subject of American missile defense, there is no most important, most vulnerable element of the system - the pair points of radio control and radio communications of interceptor missiles and their homing heads that are part of the IFICS secret system (In-Flight Interceptor Communications System).

According to the US missile defense management programs, seven pairs of IFICS fixed sites should be deployed by the number of missile defense zones in the United States and other countries. Each stationary item is located in a deserted area, occupies a plot of non-forest land area of ​​one acre (40 acres). Service positions with transmitting and receiving devices, as well as a parabolic antenna with a diameter of 19 feet (5,8 m) are located at the position of the point.



Communication with regional missile defense command posts and the central command post of NORAD (defense of the airspace of North America) is carried out via a global network of ultra-wideband digital channels of fiber-optic communication.

The presence of two IFICS points separated by a considerable distance from each other is due to the need to ensure reliable operation of the radio control system and radio communication in difficult meteorological conditions (rain, fog, snow, etc.), which affect the propagation of radio waves of the centimeter and millimeter waves, as well as for increase reliability in case of failure of one of two points.
Such a detailed description of the elements of the IFICS system was made due to the fact that over the past five years, the seal of the United States, Russia and other countries did not even mention the existence of this system, although without it none of the rest of the missile defense system has the technical capability for accurate missile guidance. interceptors on a ballistic target.

The absence in recent years of mentioning the very existence of the IFICS system can be explained by two reasons. The first is the simplest and most primitive - the United States does not want to indicate the country and the specific location of the two radio control and communication points - the most important vulnerable elements of the missile defense system. The second reason is that if IFICS locations are not supposed to be deployed in Central Europe, then the GBI missile launchers in Poland cannot solve the missile defense problem. Therefore, they are intended for other purposes.

There may be two such goals. The first is the interception and destruction of Russian military spacecraft launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region. And there is no better place for this than the north-east of Poland. The second goal is strategic facilities in the territory of the Russian Federation right up to Novosibirsk. In this case, the GBI-3 stage missiles can perform the role of medium-range ballistic missiles when launching a distance of 5000 km.

It should be noted that the use of the GBI-3 stage as a medium-range missile is very dangerous for Russia, since it provides the minimum time from the moment of giving the order signal to launch a GBI to a nuclear target destruction. Ammunition in this case may have an equivalent in 50 – 100 kt in TNT equivalent. The flight of a GBI missile from Poland to Moscow will take only 11 minutes, the same distance to the bases of the ICBM of the Strategic Missile Forces near the village of Vypolzovo and the city of Teikovo; 13 minutes to the city of Tatishchevo, 15 minutes to Nizhny Tagil and 21 a minute to Novosibirsk. Neither the United States nor its allies have other means of delivering nuclear weapons that are capable of accomplishing the tasks of preemptive nuclear missile strikes in such a short time.

        And it is especially necessary for Switzerland to show interest as the main goal, i.e. make it clear that they will not let them sit out in a type of neutral country. But in the event of a war using nuclear weapons, there will be no neutral zones on Earth and no missile defense will help.

        In this case, the "nuclear flower" should bloom over all countries where there are US bases with anti-missile and air defense, over countries where there are nuclear weapons (any) with the knowledge or without the knowledge of these countries belonging to the United States and NATO members. Only this way and nothing else. And convey this to all the peoples whom this may affect, and then we will see what the population of these countries will say to their governments.

      "ABM", "defense against Iranian missiles" - this is just a "sign". Cover, noodles for dummies.

      This is the implementation of the US new doctrine, a global simultaneous strike by all nuclear forces and means, a strike to which the adversary (read Russia) can no longer respond.

It’s soon reality, even with the hunchback, the Americans said that they would achieve that the Gorgon’s Shield would break the parity. in all conflicts he gains material, While with TOMOGAWK, but it’s not his weapon, The real weapon goes through the testing stage Until it’s all smoothly cut down and the flat trajectory is still unsuccessful Everything has its time, the Yankees will bring their rocket to mind with super sonic speed funds and time have already been spent on this project, because what is interesting, IJIS comes to EUROPA on land,

      , But that's all, these are regular ravings of hawks in the USA and NATO.


      The current GBI is just a commercial Pegasus booster with an EKV interceptor. These machines, like their predecessors at the base "Trimmings" ICBM "Minuteman", officially called "surrogate" - in fact, this is a purely experimental system. The shock deployment of "surrogates" in the Bush era had a purely political connotation: although the main emphasis was on creating missile defense infrastructure, voters needed to show something more visual. Planned purchases of "flying lasers" ABL also were purely demonstrative.
      First, the United States is stopping the deployment of strategic GBI missiles in Alaska (thus, the United States will have only about 30 strategic interceptors - less than what was allowed by the 1972 treaty). Secondly, the Americans are stopping the development of a new strategic KEI interceptor missile. This system, with increased speed, was intended to replace the GBI, and in the "ship" version - to intercept ICBMs and SLBMs in the upper stage. Thirdly, the MKV “cluster interceptor” program is ending - after the KEI closes, there simply are no suitable media left for them. Fourth, the USA refuses to purchase a second Boeing 747 aircraft equipped with a chemical laser (ABL system). At the same time, the test cycle of the already purchased aircraft will continue. Fifthly, the deployment of GBI in Poland is delayed.

      At the same time, the Pentagon intends to continue and intensify the development of missile defense programs such as Aegis-SM-3 and THAAD
      By 2013, 5 THAAD brigades with 24 interceptor missiles each should be deployed. R&D will also be continued to intercept missiles in the lift section (between the boost section and the climax). It is about developing a NOCADE air-based system based on advanced AMRAAM air-to-air missiles equipped with additional boosters. It is assumed that such interceptor missiles will be launched from F-35 aircraft. It is also possible to install them on the UAV “Predator”.

        Putting a nuclear or conventional high-power charge on an anti-missile is difficult, because these missiles are unable to carry a heavy warhead. Indeed, a large charge is not required to defeat air targets. This is not the point. The fact is that no one can say for sure WHAT they are going to deploy near our borders under the guise of "interceptor missiles."

Intercept missiles launched from Plesetsk, and 2. Use missile defense missiles as medium-range missiles, destroying our strategic targets up to Novosibirsk. And this is very, very dangerous.

    amers have a cool idea: to create an interceptor missile with the function of a ballistic medium-range missile. although, in fact, between the Russian Federation and the United States there is an agreement on the impossibility of having and deploying short- and medium-range missiles in Europe. and try to prove to them that this is not only an interceptor missile. cunning, at me, economical and resourceful. it is also necessary to find a compromise and, under the guise of a "bear with a balalaika", create a medium-range mbr to extinguish the same tracking points, bases, etc.

    By the way "negrila" won the elections, again promises will sound like friends and other snot.

    Why are you afraid, the American missile defense system works the same way as our VAZ. It is far from perfect, recent tests have shown that they can destroy 80% of missiles flying along a flat trajectory, along a predictable path and, most importantly, with a radio beacon on board, it’s like "I would have known where to fall and laid fat lilies." Most of our missiles have an unpredictable trajectory, there are false targets, you can also add our recent submarine off the coast of the United States, which was not noticed (and how many were there unnoticed at all ?!) In short, in the event of an attack with nuclear weapons, amers can shoot down 3-5% of our rockets and even then with a fantastic vision!

    PS Remember, read in more detail how the Yankees fought in Iraq, how they could not take control of the city of Fallujah, it's a shame! Remember how Gringo killed Osama bin Laden, their special forces "stole" the most perfect helicopter, the second was put in the wrong place belay it's just a kindergarten! Just remember how they bombed the fortress in Afghanistan, threw the most high-precision bombs and the most powerful bombs on the fortress, or rather the weapons in the fortress, but as you know, not a single bomb hit! This I wrote what I remembered in literally 20 seconds. and if you go deeper, you will find such a thing there that the Russian army will seem just perfect to you!

    Measures to disable information and control assets of the missile defense system are another step that the General Staff is ready to take. “Along with information facilities of various bases (land, sea and space), other components of the system can be exposed to impact: command posts, communications and data transmission facilities. The impact can be aimed both at suppressing the performance of certain tasks and at the physical destruction of these elements. One of such measures may be disruption of the functioning of the space segment of the anti-missile defense, "N. Makarov noted.

    The head of the General Staff also recalled Russia's plans to deploy new strike weapons for fire destruction of missile defense components in the south and northwest of Russia.

    "Taking into account the destabilizing nature of the missile defense system, namely, the creation of the illusion of delivering an unpunished disarming strike, the decision on the preemptive use of the available means of destruction will be made during the aggravation of the situation," N. Makarov concluded.
