Air Force Base in the United States failed to check on the use of strategic missiles

44

The Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana did not pass the inspection of maintenance, security and support functions, Interfax reports. Regular safety inspections and procedures for working with nuclear weapons put the base "unsatisfactory" on the results of the audit


The Malmstrom Air Force base check was conducted from 5 to August 13. Inspectors reported that "during the execution of one of several training tasks, the military made a number of tactical errors." Jim Kowalski, Deputy Head of the Global Shock Command of the United States Air Force, explained later that "the unit failed without demonstrating the correct procedures."

It should be noted that at this base in the state of Montana stored strategic missiles Minuteman. But Jim Kowalski stressed that the situation at the base does not constitute "any danger to the US nuclear arsenal," although it is "a sign of potential vulnerability."

This year, this is the second time that a unit of the United States Air Force cannot pass the test needed to work with nuclear weapons. In May, it became known that 17 officers in the state of North Dakota were denied certification after they failed to pass an evaluation committee, reports The Australian.

Earlier in the year 2007 it became known about the scandalous incident when the B-52 bomber flew over the entire country, transporting not nuclear weapons, but training ones. They were installed on the plane by mistake. Then, according to the results of the investigation, Air Force Minister Michael Winn and Chief of Staff of the Air Force Michael Mosley were dismissed. After that, the US attempted to tighten control over nuclear weapons in the country.

      Malmstrom’s Air Force base in Montana has not passed an inspection of maintenance, security, and support functions, Interfax reports. A regular inspection of safety and nuclear weapons procedures set the base "unsatisfactory" based on the results of the audit.

      Of course Putin is to blame! bully

      Ah ah ah! Urgently send humanitarian and technical assistance to our "strategic partners" in the person of the unemployed Serdyukov, according to the saying of the late Viktor Stepanych about joining NATO: "And they are a new member, and we are pleased."

        "Earlier in 2007, it became known about the scandalous incident when a B-52 bomber flew over the territory of the entire country, transporting not training, but military nuclear charges. They were installed on the plane by mistake." - the fact that the Americans were stupid even before this test strains another, if these stupid people could mistakenly install a nuclear warhead on the bomber, which prevents them from mistakenly launching a combat nuclear charge instead of a training launch. Is it really impossible to put something more adequate on the control of nuclear weapons - in short, the news does not add a fig of optimism - this is not funny.

      It feels like everything is blooming and smelling right here, they even reveal it, but we have a habit of satisfactorily placing it and going on. The fact that they carry out checks and reveal violations is for them the same well, will eliminate them in advance, everyone has mistakes, it is foolish to scoff here.
      Here are some comments about the deficiencies in the exercises in our army.

      There are drawbacks, of course, but who has them?
      The main thing after an in-depth analysis is to focus on their effective solution, with the appointment of deadlines and responsible persons.
      At the next exercise on the results to draw conclusions and correction.


      The shortcomings are revealed during the exercise, and therefore there are no limits for improving the army, especially with the arrival of new weapons.


      And what are the comments here? In the US, it turns out to be the opposite; if there are flaws, everything is sadness, everything should be closed, they are incapable, well, stupid.

      You look from the outside at what you write, it’s really funny and sad at the same time, if you think that insulting the US Army will make it weaker from this, and ours will be stronger, then you are deeply mistaken. With the caps, no one has yet been able to cast aside, and if we judge it objectively, then we have more problems in 100 more than in the US Army, if corruption is even discarded.

    A "two" in tactics can be obtained only in three cases:
    1. Offensive towards the opposite front line;
    2. Forcing the river along;
    3. A nuclear strike against their troops.

      - What do you mean "why?" In strict accordance with international traditions, we will transfer these missiles to US partners, for example, Saudi Arabia, with delivery under our own power directly from the American continent. Do they love democracy? Let them get it.
      And we will keep our "Topol" and "Yars". So, just in case.
