Military Review

In the United States began the search for a place under the third base of mine-based interceptors

46

Pentagon’s assistant chief in global strategic affairs, Madeleine Cridon, said that her agency is currently “exploring at least three areas in the continental US” for a possible creation of another, third mine-based interceptor base there.


One such facility already exists in Alaska and in California, ITAR-TASS reports.

She spoke in the Senate of the US Congress at the hearing, which reviewed the US missile defense program.

For his part, Vice-Admiral James Siring, Director of the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, who took part in the hearings along with Gilmour, stressed that the “highest priority” for him and his subordinates “for the near future” remains the successful implementation of the target interception mine-based anti-missiles.

Two of these last tests, organized in January and December 2010, failed. The Missile Defense Agency is now planning on one such test at the beginning and end of 2014, said Siring.

At the end of last year, after a two-year break, the Pentagon resumed testing of ground-based interceptor missiles developed under the missile defense program.

The company "Reytation" commissioned by the Pentagon improves the mine-based anti-missiles, which in the number of 20 units are already installed at the military bases of Vandenberg in California and Fort-Greeks in Alaska.

A new modification of the interceptor missile is currently being developed, which will be able to destroy the enemy's ballistic missile in a collision due to kinetic energy.

A month later in Hawaii, the largest stories The US Armed Forces, an anti-missile defense force, in which five ballistic and cruise missiles were simultaneously intercepted.

The exercises, which took place at the Kwajalein Atoll range, Hickam airbase in Hawaii and adjacent areas of the western Pacific Ocean, used the Aegis sea-based missile defense system, as well as missile defense system "Patriot" (PAC-3).

      They know how events will develop, because they themselves develop them. They want to get benefits, they hope to survive after "It" begins. American debt began to grow, long before the collapse of the USSR, but this is not debt, as some believe, this is just a loan, their investment in the future, which promises them big profits. There is nothing surprising in this; this is true, practical capitalism.

        Yes, let them build ... the next megadollars for this matter will wane, but by the time of construction it will turn out that the complex does not provide anything except its presence, read it.

        It is strange that ours do not build stationary missile defense facilities. In my opinion, such objects are very necessary along the European border - it will be necessary to somehow shoot down their missile defense ...

    In a nutshell, then "para bellum" - It should be remembered: who wants peace, let him prepare for war; who wants victory, let him diligently train the soldiers; whoever wants to get a favorable result, let him wage war relying on art and knowledge, and not on chance. No one dares to challenge and insult the one about whom he knows that in battle he will be stronger than him.

      and in Australia too? I read like that during the Caribbean crisis, the Americans calculated how many people would have died in the event of a nuclear conflict - they estimated 150 million people on both sides, I don’t remember the proportion, but about 40-60 million Americans would have died their script.
      in the modern world, it’s not yet clear who is going to fight with whom with the use of nuclear weapons, so it’s not possible to calculate exactly who and how many will die. But one thing can be said, all 7 billion will not die.
      if for example to arrange a nuclear war ONLY between the United States and China, then in Nicaragua or Brazil no one will die, is it logical?

    If the Americans use all their nuclear weapons against Russia, and even if Russia does not respond, the weight is equal. Everyone will die only, unlike the Russians, they will die slowly and painfully, and still have time to look at their freak children. It is not known which is better. I would choose instant death than prolonged extinction with degradation.

    After reading a lot of articles and watching a lot of videos, I concluded that the Russian army is weak to my regret and can’t stand up to the US army, if it attacks Russia because they have nuclear weapons, Americans know that if they go to war against Russia, Russia there will be no more voriants besides how to use nuclear weapons after this, the cannon of light is inevitable. According to the reform plan until 2020, I think until that time that the state order wakes up, the Americans will also not stand still, will develop their the same army our PAK FA is NOW ONLY IN TESTING and the American f 22 is already around 200 and with combat patronage and they are already developing a 6th generation destroyer. I will hope and expect the best from the reform until 2020. We'll also see what happens from America huge public debt.

      Well, what are the Americans fighters? They are only on the screen so all strong and formidable, but they have practically no fighting spirit. It is enough for them to strike hard in the teeth on the move and they scatter, whining. Remember the war in Georgia in August 2008, when American instructors threw hummers on the battlefield with the latest secret equipment and encryption machines and fled. Are these wars? The Russian soldier has no equal - neither in the strength of the Spirit, nor in combat training. And this is the determining factor. Yes, we have fewer planes, tanks, etc. But we have Topol, Yarsy, Iskander, T-90, SU, MiG, etc. Russian weapons are sharpened for Russian warriors with a strong Spirit. And this quality multiplies the power of the weapon, gives a huge advantage. So the US will not dare to attack Russia. And if they do dare, they will run with their tails between their legs, and we kick them to Washington, as in 1945 we kicked the Germans to Berlin.

    Mine-based missiles located in California are not scary for us. Maneuvering in a cloud of false targets at hypersonic speed, it is practically impossible to intercept a warhead. There are chances of interception only at the booster stage and before the separation of warheads.
    Therefore, Russia is actively opposing the deployment of anti-ballistic missiles in Poland.
    An even greater danger is missile defense on offshore platforms.
