Test US missile defense system failed


In the United States, ground-based interceptor missiles were tested as part of the missile defense system, during which it was planned to intercept a long-range ballistic missile.

The training target was launched from the Marshall Islands in the Pacific, and an interceptor missile was launched from a military base in California. However, the goal was not succeeded.

The Pentagon explained that program participants would conduct an investigation to determine the cause of the failure.

Earlier it was reported that the test is crucial for the United States in terms of repelling possible attacks using long-range ballistic missiles. US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, commenting on the situation with the development of nuclear weapons in the DPRK, said that the Pentagon is able to improve the missile defense system in the Asia-Pacific region in order to protect against "dangerous provocations" from North Korea.

    Or maybe it's the misinformation that Washington wants to give us. For 10 years we drove Americans by the nose about the accuracy of our ballistic missiles. The truth then revealed when the mattresses were able to decrypt telemetry from our missiles.
    I think this may be part of the plan that Snowden is the key link in. See my commentary on Hurricane Snowden.

      Of course, some kind of a muddy story with this Snowden, but everything was aimed at compromising Russia and China. The merged infa is no special secret, so the pawn sacrifice in a big chess game. But this sacrifice was in vain. Mousetrap worked idle. Well, with a rocket: everything happens during tests, another thing is how long these tests will drag on. The mace also did not immediately fly.

      What's the point? Maneuvering maneuvering parts with a blank at such speeds is unlikely, unless you have the gift of foresight (they foresee their own). Unless this misinformation is intended for Koreans, but for what they misinform, there are more chances to receive a couple of kilotons.

        Good to you, Alexander. I don’t have mania, but I have a desire to understand what is happening. This topic has more questions than answers.
        - Why did this runaway ANBshnik apply for political asylum mainly to those countries that have an extradition treaty in the USA (exceptions Russia and China).
        - Why did he do this at all, he was protected and provided for the rest of his days with a superpower - the USA, he could live until the end of his days like cheese in butter. And now he will have to hide all his life.
        “Why did the Americans cancel his passport when you could just demand his extradition.”
        - Why in Europe some governments began to be so theatrically indignant at this wiretap, when even me, and their special services, had been aware of it for a long time.
        - If this is an honest guy, then why did the Chinese not want to deal with him. And sent to Russia, where he, too, did not interest anyone.

    "An F-16 of the IDF Air Force crashed near the coast of the Gaza Strip"
    On Sunday, July 7, 50 km from the coast of the Gaza Strip, an F-16i fighter crashed.
    The "Reshet Bet" radio station reports that the pilot and navigator managed to eject. IDF officials report that the F-16i (aircraft of this class were called "Sufa" in Israel) took off from the Israeli Air Force base "Hatzerim" in the Southern District and made a routine training flight. During the flight, the pilot and navigator reported an engine malfunction to the ground. For several minutes the crew tried to cope with the problem that arose on board, but then decided to leave the plane. To rescue the pilots were sent fighters "669" unit. The Reshet Beth report notes that the pilots are doing well. They are taken to the Tel
    Hashomer "for examination. Commander of the Israeli
    The Air Force ordered the termination of all F-16 and F-15 flights pending clarification of the cause of the accident. F-16i "Sufa" is produced by the American concern Lockheed-Martin and is modernized
    two-seat version of the fighter F-16D Block 50/52 Fighting Falcon, armed with the US Air Force. It is designed specifically for the Israeli Air Force.

      Unfortunately, not the first and apparently not the last.
      Today's F-16 crash is the ninth crash of an aircraft of this type in the Israeli Air Force over the past 15 years. In March of the 2000 year, an attack fighter crashed into the sea during a training flight. Both pilots died. Cars crashed in August of the 2000, in February of the 2003 and in May of the 2005.
      Pilots, fortunately, had time to eject. In all these cases, the cause of the disaster was a technical malfunction. The 13 of September of the 2009 of the year was one of the black days in the history of Israeli military aviation. F-16, piloted by the son of the first Israeli cosmonaut Ilan Ramon - Asaf, fell in the Hebron Highlands. The pilot, for whom this training flight was one of the first after graduating from flight school, did not have time to eject. Both pilots also died in a plane crash on the night of November 11 on 2010. During a routine training flight in the area of ​​the southern Israeli city of Mitzpe Ramon, the F-16 lost control and crashed to the ground. Until the last second, the pilots tried to save the combat vehicle, which went into a tailspin. For military pilots Amihai Itkis and Emmanuel Levy, this training flight was the last.
      Over the past 15 years, the Israeli Air Force has not lost a single F-16 in battle. All disasters involving this type of aircraft were the result of technical malfunctions and pilot errors. Was the human factor the reason why the Israeli Air Force didn’t count yet another war machine worth 70 million shekels? This will find out the army investigation.

    World missile bad luck ... All this is theirs even PRO - bullshit, since the time of Reagan with its soy. You can’t shoot down bullets with bullets. The only salvation from ballistic missiles is to prevent its launch. That is, to destroy the launchers - to shoot down at the extremes at the start. I think so.

    - planned, planned - but not planned!
    Serves them right (of course, this is a "childish" statement). But still, the fact remains!

    US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, commenting on the situation with the development of nuclear weapons in the DPRK, said that the Pentagon is able to improve the missile defense system in the Asia-Pacific region in order to protect itself from "dangerous provocations" from North Korea.


    - not the weekend saw a film about American "partisans - wolverines". North Korea captured the United States within XNUMX hours! My God, yes they are obsessed, our paratroopers were assigned there. PDC in one word. By looking at this picture, I draw involuntary conclusions: if the DPRK was captured, so why can't we do this with China? - But this is just a film ... And I laughed at him.

      There they have a powerful military-industrial lobby, they remove all kinds of horror stories to justify a large military budget of approximately 700 billion dollars a year, for comparison, in Russia 70 billion, in China 140 billion.

    Accidents, breakdowns in key areas that the state cannot do without are always an occasion to demand more money from the budget.

    There would be no Korea with missiles - they would have come up with another scarecrow, too big a business in business, one might say, "country-forming"

    Let's hope that "Motherland sees, Motherland hears", who is doing what.
    And all tests are carried out within the framework of missile defense, i.e. against us, and they say Korea.
    Tests of the US missile defense system failed, the Pentagon said. The rocket failed to destroy the training target.

    Notice, not the heads, but the rocket - the "target"!
    But if they cannot "take off" their missiles, given a known route, then what can we say about the Russian "Topols", "Bulava"?

    For 10 years we drove Americans by the nose about the accuracy of our ballistic missiles.

    Real story. A very close person told me. Unfortunately already gone. Last year. In the early 80s, as part of a large team of scientists on a geophysical vessel from Leningrad, they came to the area of ​​Australia (well, or something like that). Somewhere we got a barge and installed on it equipment purchased from Germany for drop dead currency that records telemetry from a rocket. The USSR announced the launch of missiles in a dedicated square of the Pacific Ocean. The barge was towed to the center of the square. Went to the required distance. They are waiting for the warhead to arrive. Around the NATO ships - do not push, helicopters, planes, boats ... So what? The long-awaited warhead arrives - and right to the barge! Start - down the drain. Expensive equipment bought almost smuggled for workers 'and peasants' money was lost ... But what did the NATO members see? Horseradish knows where the disc flew in and directly to the barge !! Vladimir Fedorovich said that I couldn’t get pistons from my bosses at all, and before that I had received prizes for such launches, even medals ...
