The US will launch deadly terns into the sky

The US will launch deadly terns into the sky

American drones will be able to attack anywhere in the world at any time. The US Army is developing a new kind of UAV, which was named after the tern seabird.


The abbreviation TERN - The Tactically Exploited Reconnaissance Node - can be translated into Russian as "tactical intelligence node." And if Russian letters add up to the name of a wild bull, then in English it sounds like a tern - a bird that lives on the sea coast.

The peculiarity of the new UAVs is the ability to take off even from small sea vessels, while modern UAVs soar into the sky from the ground or from large ships. This somewhat limits their capabilities - first of all, in terms of speed and range of strikes. Large ships at sea are smaller and often they are far from the target, and the airfield in this regard is even less suitable for an unexpected attack. The developer of the "terns" - the US Agency for Advanced Military Development DARPA - has made a bid for the sea, because the water washes the shores of all continents. This means that the UAV will be able to attack almost any target on the planet almost at lightning speed.

It is even known that the "killer birds" will be "male": the name of the type of these UAVs sounds like MALE - medium-altitude long-endurance aircraft (aircraft of long duration at medium altitude). The payload of the UAV is 270 kilograms; the unit can move from its base for a distance from 600 to 900 nautical miles. First of all, these planes are designed to destroy mobile targets. And besides, they will be used as scouts.

“It's like a hand-held falcon, which will certainly return to your hand, wherever you are, instead of flying to the same nest every time,” explained DARPA employee Daniel Pett. At the same time, the Pentagon has not yet announced the deadlines for adopting the “terns” for service.

Content of the type: on the eve of the onset of 2000 - turn off the light and gas, stock up on gasoline, drinking water, food. (I do not remember how much), withdraw money, do not plan trips for several days, especially by air and trains, etc. There was just not enough "to acquire a shroud or a coffin" ...

    laughing A very interesting project, but it is not fun for the Americans. Well, they will make it first, then the Chinese and we will repeat it. We are generally high, we will use relatively stupid Mistral as tern airfields. But the amers will have a bad time, the ships they have are all aircraft carriers and cruisers. Great targets for terns. Especially if they are stealth. Our stealth or our Chinese tern flew in, threw a cluster bomb or missile onto an Amerian aircraft carrier and there are not a dozen on the deck of superhornets.

    UAVs will be able to attack almost any target on the planet with almost lightning speed.
    I wonder how they imagine it. The ship must approach the coast of a foreign state, launch a bird that will fly for an hour or two to the target (the device is not hypersonic), and at this time all the air defense personnel are sleeping or gone for lunch. And the coast guard all resigned of their own free will. The device is good for finding a camel caravan in the desert on friendly territory. Another cut of the American military-industrial complex of "people's" money.

      An attack weapon without a pilot does not require landing. In fact, instead of cruise missiles, these are ground-based devices with software. This is a strong development of ammunition: with a sudden attack in the coastal strip for 500 km or more inland, it does not seem enough. But, nevertheless, it makes no sense to attack nuclear Russia, China, and India with such weapons. Countries such as Syria, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, Vietnam and others need to create a military bloc similar to NATO with a fixed obligation of general protection in case of attack on a country by a member of the bloc.

Railguns shoot so hard that electricity is cut off by entire states. Well, in general, a solid Weapons of Future. The US cap was completely ripped off.

    Gloom, the Americans are deploying and preparing for testing the strategy of a global military presence built on the principles of war of the next technological order, and the people laugh merrily like Russian hackers, the most talented of whom, bought by the Pentagon a long time ago and oiled by monstrous project budgets, will somehow resist the onslaught Babylon, forgive Washington and their military penetration into Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa. Even in the war with Russia, this is a very serious thing. (MANPADS capable of shooting down UAVs at altitudes above 4000 m are stored right in every village and railway station? And the personnel are regularly trained and trained in such MANPADS shooting? Even in the war with Russia, such a system deployed around the world is an excellent help. For an indirect war, when countries measure their weapons in the territories of third countries (Vietnam, Korea), this is generally a magic wand that will allow Russia, China and India to be kicked out from all regions of presence, if you do not urgently work out a response at the level of systemic countermeasures. ( Special team of professionals, aerial observation points, effective systems of destruction). And not without a systemic level: “Yes, our hackers will shower them with their hats, but our men will shred them with their shoulder blades.” Honestly, patriotic morning drunken pioneers. Interestingly, there are real officers here who would be worried, albeit with good funding, the absolutely haphazard construction and modernization of our aircraft? When there are some UAZ bought, here some steamers, but how all this will interact and work, how to apply all this and in what order and what should be purchased in the first place, no one thought.

      In some ways I agree with you. But only in something. Show me at least one "super" project of the Americans, which they brought to mind and it really works. I can't remember something like that. Wherever you spit, some bummer. "Stealths" were praised, praised, until they were shot down in Yugoslavia, after which they stopped flying altogether, and the project was curtailed. The electronically modified Abrams tank showed itself from the worst side in the first Iraqi one (the problem with the sand and the vulnerability of the auxiliary turret rotation drive, they later hid it in the hull). Well, the main masterpiece of the F-35 - no comment. And all these lasers, railguns and antiproton guns, I will modestly keep silent. In Cern, pundits are working hard on obtaining an anti-substance - there are so many problems with this, and they get it in scanty quantities, even for experiments there is not enough .. And the USA immediately swung at the anti-proton gun. Why, a billion bucks more, less - what's the difference?

        Super is not super, and US carriers are helping to export oil from countries with undeveloped defense.
        B-52 showed itself very well in the fight against opium poppy crops in Afghanistan - the crops grew 10 times ... What else ... GPS - planted the whole world, and in any conflict they can jam, which greatly affects the defending country.
        And about such a project as the spread of democracy, uh ... the universal idea in general - the Holocaust, the 1 and 2 I world war, the bombing of Dresden and the Buchenwald furnace simply can not be compared!

        Stealth they don’t fly, a crocodile is not caught, coconut does not grow ... They cry to God, pray ..... But seriously, the road will be overpowered by the one who goes. Compared to the terrible agony and prenatal cramps, the plane was born, which was destined to become the best fighter for the next fifty years, the F-35 birth pangs seem like flowers. By the way, this is me, of course, about the Su-27. Quantity goes into quality, and perseverance determines success. I assure you, at such a pace and with their obstinacy, sooner or later everything will buzz in them, wrap up, spin, and stealth will fly as it should. And we will all laugh merrily, trying on a hat to the stealth.

          Already half a century has passed, but it still does not buzz or spin. Strange though. And here is an example: About ten years ago, NASA was puzzled by the "Black Hole", they say, there is a "Hole" that sucks in there and does not give anything in return. Disorder, it would be necessary to find out where it sucks everything. So they came up with a "brilliant" project. Let's say we'll send a probe there, with a big Adernaya bonba, it'll be hot there, and we'll go through our telescopes (radio, infrared, X-ray) and see what and how. No sooner said than done, we began to develop the project, the money began to master. Until some learned husband (most likely a young graduate, with a fresh and not blurry look) asked - Gentlemen, why are you going to register, what kind of radiation, because she is the "Black Hole" that takes everything into itself and nothing from does not let himself go. The scientists grunted and went on to invent "smart" things. Well, what can you do, well, it didn't work out.

            But the British scientists ... now you can write all kinds of nonsense behind this phrase and it will pass for them as science. smile
            But sending NASA three devices to Mars was still successful, agree. It would be better if they did this, sending the interplanetary stations is still getting better for the Americans than wunderwafes to destroy their own kind.

              No question, only the DAN (Dynamic Neutron Albedo) setup, Russian. The Americans honestly admitted that they have no analogues of this installation, even theoretically.

          I assure you, at such a pace and with their obstinacy, sooner or later everything will buzz in them, wrap up, spin, and stealth will fly as it should.

          Wait and see. Now they have more and better propaganda and PR machines than real latest weapons. I don’t argue, there are of course some examples of interesting weapons, but they stand so that 100 just think about whether the goal is worth these costs. And there is something not to be seen in mass production ...

    I heard that even during the Cold War, we threw it into the media and through double agents about the beginning of development and even certain successes in the field of weapons and technologies, which made our authorities react at that time to the discovery of such areas in science. This led, on the one hand, to the dispersal of the means of the USSR, and, on the other hand, to real scientific achievements in these areas. But in these areas the amers already had their own people who poured into the states secret information developed by our experts. Those. they cunning villains like that. Of course, I don’t know if this is true or speculation, but maybe the same thing happens here. In any case, I never wish them success in any undertaking, especially in the field of armaments and equipment!

    The Americans decided on a strategy for the development of the armed forces; they are increasingly moving away from soldiers' contact battle. For this reason, losses in manpower are low. And we are talking about sapper shovels ...

      With this strategy, Americans can only fight against countries with an underdeveloped army. Where there is no air defense, MANPADS, KR, anti-ship missiles, fleet, aviation, heavy armored vehicles. And no one has yet canceled the guerrilla war. Whoever says anything, and in the end only infantry can occupy the enemy’s territory and establish a base or bridgehead there, and ultimately completely destroy the enemy.

        Well, now it is no longer necessary to introduce infantry into foreign territory ... in order to pump out raw materials and minerals from foreign territory (and no one needs it for anything else) - it is enough to put the government of such a country in the appropriate conditions :) And for this such "birds" "may turn out to be more useful than the costly occupation armies involved in the eternal struggle against the partisans ... New time - new songs, new technologies for occupying the country and getting what is needed and useful from it with a minimum of costs

          And if the government of this country sent aggressors in three letters? A vivid example of Syria. You saw how you tried to conduct everything according to the Libyan scenario! And they would have held, but somewhere there was a failure ... and now they’re sitting, they don’t know what to do next - I don’t really want to retreat, admit defeat, but climbing there with a ground operation is also not an option. In both cases, the image of the country of the aggressor will suffer significantly. And at least start up these drones ....

        Dear Wedmak, you think in old categories. The tasks that the United States sets itself: Providing leadership, obtaining resources, managing the elites of dependent and semi-dependent countries, their bribery. The weakening of countries striving for independence, pursuing policies that run counter to the US line through economic pressure, sanctions, financial transactions, the media, political collisions, organizing local conflicts on political, national, religious grounds, Destruction of infrastructure, purchase of enterprises and strategic resources, use artificial bankruptcy procedures. Placement for important state posts of "Own" people (using corruption and direct pressure for this) This is also a war !!! Where is the place for the infantry here ?! ... You can subjugate the state without it !!!

    Not a bad idea at all. As I understand, any medium-sized ship can be turned into an aircraft carrier .. But it will probably be expensive. Success can only be achieved by "setting" a whole flock of such birds on objects. It makes sense in intelligence, probably, here the advantages are huge.

      the Germans are engaged in reconnaissance drones of the submarine, and Lockheed Martin is developing an UAV, which will launch directly from the mines of ballistic missiles, from a depth of 150 feet. Rising into the air near the apparatus, wings spread, jet engines were turned on, and it became an ordinary drone for reconnaissance missions and precision fire strikes. After completing the mission, the "Cormorant" returns, and with the help of a parachute splashed. After which it transfers data through the water column. Next, the submarine picks up the device, moreover, it does this without surfacing. A robotic apparatus with a cable is released from it, which hooks the Cormorant, and returns to the submarine.

    price and cost of servicing new amers. UAV already comes to the cost of 4th generation fighters.
    and at the expense of "UAVs will be able to attack almost any target on the planet with almost lightning speed" - so for this you need not UAVs, but to arm satellites.

      You care what their maintenance costs. The United States is the first economy in the world and their spending is appropriate. In addition, it is better to break the UAV, no matter how much it costs, than to kill a person.

        The problem is - to ditch a person? Ask, dear, the problems in the recruitment of the "mattress army". Mass obesity is already a quirk in the tongues! And what about criminals, lumpenization? We are now going crazy, looking at the modern moral level. So here is the beginning of the process. lol I sincerely hope that there will be forces, both popular and imperious, to slow him down. angry And they started it very long ago and developed successfully! fellow

          One likes to count other people's money, the second to delve into the problems of manning the world's most powerful army. I advise you to pay more attention to the problems of your country and your army, where also not all recruits heroes are good fellows.

    A feature of the new drones is the ability to take off even from small sea vessels,

    Here's what I like about the Americans: they are ready to make an option out of every little thing like in a car !!!
    You can launch an UAV even from a submarine when you ascend!
    There is nothing easier to lift the UAV by the hook in the tail unit in a balloon and release it from 1000 m.
