Military Review

Strategic opposition to the near future. Nuclear weapons, missile defense and lightning-fast global strike

37
In recent years, the United States and NATO are engaged in several promising projects designed to increase their defense capability. First of all, this is the Euro-Atlantic missile defense system. It is assumed that the construction of a number of military facilities in Eastern Europe will protect the European and North American countries from rocket attacks. In addition, projects are underway to create new percussion systems that can hit a target anywhere in the world in a relatively short time. All these US and NATO programs have a specific impact on the international situation and provoke controversy.




Missile epic

According to official statements, Iran has been considered as a potential enemy that the missile defense system must confront in recent years. However, events in the international arena can develop in different ways and therefore can sometimes lead to unexpected results. So, a few weeks ago, Iran and several foreign countries took another step towards resolving the nuclear issue.

In November, official Tehran agreed to suspend the work of its nuclear industry for six months. During this time, specialized companies will not conduct any research, and also stop uranium enrichment. In addition, now Iran and the IAEA are agreeing on the dates of visits of inspectors to Iranian nuclear facilities. Earlier this year, US analysts argued that by the middle of 2014, Iran would accumulate enough enriched uranium and be able to make its first atomic bomb. The temporary cessation of the work of the Iranian nuclear industry enterprises should lead to a shift in the timing of the beginning of the creation of atomic ammunition, if, of course, Iran leads such projects.

The outcome of the next negotiations could be international agreements, according to which Iran will completely abandon plans to build nuclear weapons. The likelihood of such a development is difficult to assess. For example, US President B. Obama said recently that he was not sure whether the Iranian nuclear issue could be finally resolved. If in the coming months, conferences, visits by IAEA inspectors and other events will not lead to the curtailment of work on the Iranian atomic bomb, then in the future you should not expect any major changes in the international situation. Most likely, Iran will again be subjected to sanctions and, being in such a difficult situation, will continue to develop nuclear technologies.

However, another scenario is possible. If the official Tehran accepts the proposal of the international community and abandons the military nuclear program, in the near future some countries may find themselves in an awkward situation. First of all, it is the United States. Washington over the past years has been constantly trying to put pressure on the Iranian authorities, demanding that they abandon nuclear technologies. At the same time, the United States and its NATO allies are building a Euro-Atlantic missile defense system, ostensibly aimed at countering Iranian strategic weapons.

The available information about the Iranian missile program makes it clear that in the foreseeable future this country will not be able to make a ballistic missile suitable for attacking targets in the United States. At the moment, the maximum capabilities of Iranian missiles are Eastern and, possibly, Central Europe. However, it is the United States that is most active in promoting Euro-Atlantic missile defense. There is a logical assumption that missile defense systems in Europe are not built to protect against Iran, but to counter ballistic missiles of Russia or China.

In the rhetoric accompanying the construction of a Euro-Atlantic missile defense system, the Iranian threat was constantly mentioned. After the recent international conference, such events may occur, due to which the United States and its NATO allies will have to look for a new official reason to continue building anti-missile systems. If Iran gives up its plans to create a nuclear weaponsthen the need to create a Euro-Atlantic missile defense system will have to be supported by new arguments.

Thus, in the current situation, one of the most profitable scenarios for the United States and NATO - as absurd as it looked - will be the continuation of Iran’s nuclear and missile programs. In this case, there will be a reason not to reduce or even increase the cost of building a Euro-Atlantic missile defense system, which is actually intended to protect Europe and, to some extent, the United States, from Russian or Chinese missiles. Confirmation or denial of this assumption will appear in the middle of next year, when the six months stipulated by the existing agreement with Iran expire.

Just a couple of days ago, new messages appeared that can be interpreted as a real reason for the continuation of the construction of the Euro-Atlantic missile defense system. December 11, speaking at the government hour in the State Duma, Deputy Prime Minister D. Rogozin said that Russia reserves the right to use nuclear weapons and is ready to use them if someone decides to attack. Rogozin noted that our country never underestimated the role of nuclear weapons as a deterrent, and also advised potential aggressors not to forget about it.

The words of D. Rogozin can be interpreted in different ways. Someone will see in them aggressive intentions, and someone - a warning addressed to possible enemies. Anyway, the Deputy Prime Minister recalled that Russia has both nuclear weapons and plans to use them. The size of the Russian nuclear arsenals is such that any attempt at a massive strike on our territory threatens the attacker with enormous damage, which will exceed the benefits of the conflict by several orders of magnitude. Not only Russian officials know and understand this. The very fact of building a missile defense system in Eastern Europe suggests that the North Atlantic Alliance is well aware of the danger that Russian nuclear forces pose to it.



Lightning strike and the answer to it

Often, experts note that the Euro-Atlantic missile defense system in the form in which it is being built will not be able to effectively counter Russian strategic missile forces. The simplest, albeit costly, way to break through any missile defense system is a massive strike using a large number of missiles. In this case, anti-missile systems will not be able to intercept all the items sent, and the possibilities of breaking through will be sufficient to cause serious damage to the enemy. Such an asymmetric response to the missile defense system allows you to provide a guaranteed response destruction of enemy targets without costly and not always effective investments in workable anti-missile systems.

The United States is currently working on another asymmetric way to maintain parity in strategic weapons. The latest concept of a lightning global strike involves the creation of weapons systems capable of destroying a target anywhere on the planet within a few tens of minutes after an attack decision has been made. It is assumed that such tasks will be high-speed high-precision systems equipped with a conventional warhead. In addition, in some cases, hypersonic guided missiles may not be equipped with a warhead at all, since their speed and energy will be sufficient to destroy the target with a direct hit.

The creation of lightning fast global strike systems is expected to significantly reduce the role of nuclear weapons in the containment structure. It is probably for this reason that Washington has recently been regularly inviting Moscow to sign a new nuclear arms reduction treaty, implying an additional reduction in arsenals. Such proposals may indicate certain successes in creating lightning strike systems. However, official information on such projects is limited to only a few the news. Several U.S. companies are developing and testing experimental devices, but practical products are out of the question.

At the same time, however, systems of lightning global strike are already beginning to turn into a cause for disputes between Russia and the United States. For example, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister S. Ryabkov, in an interview for Kommersant, called the American lightning strike systems extremely dangerous and destabilizing the situation. The fact is that in the event of a serious geopolitical crisis, the use of such weapons, including those not against Russia, could end in the most terrible way. Even if the weapons system is equipped with a conventional warhead, Russia may consider its use an attack. Such features of perspective high-speed and high-precision weapons by definition cannot have a beneficial effect on the geopolitical situation in the world.

Russia, if necessary, can respond to missile defense with a massed missile strike. We have nothing to use against lightning-fast global strike systems. It is worth noting that the United States does not currently have the necessary systems either, which is why a kind of arms race in this area is being postponed for the near future. Nevertheless, the Russian defense industry is already preparing for protection against new threats. During his recent speech in the State Duma, Deputy Prime Minister D. Rogozin touched on this topic. According to him, the Advanced Research Foundation has already reviewed more than a thousand proposals relating to protection against new strategic weapons. 52 proposals considered promising, and eight will be worked out as a matter of priority. The details of these proposals, for obvious reasons, were not disclosed.

New arms race?

As we see, even solving the issue of the Iranian nuclear missile program will not make the international situation less tense. Leading countries will continue to implement their plans, regularly touching on other people's interests. There is reason to believe that the emerging trend towards an increase in the number of controversial issues will develop in the future. Now Russia and the United States with some participation of third countries are arguing about the Euro-Atlantic missile defense system, and a new topic has appeared on the horizon — a system of lightning-fast global strike. The creation of such weapons and means of countering them will lead to the emergence of new projects designed to ensure the unconditional leadership of one of the countries. This will be followed by the creation of new means of counteraction and, as a result, the situation may escalate into a real arms race.

It is worth noting that after the end of the Cold War, the leading countries of the world did not cease the development of armaments and military equipment, trying to surpass potential adversaries. This approach to defense projects is still being used, and there is no reason to believe that in the foreseeable future someone will refuse it. Therefore, it can be assumed that the emerging arms race in the sphere of strategic strike systems and means of countering them will be similar to the events of recent years. Despite the obvious importance of such programs, countries are no longer able to finance them in the same amounts as during the Cold War.

      A good answer to the strategy of a lightning strike could be the revival of the Kontakt air-ground complex. And ours, it seems, are already thinking about it ...


      The State Duma is asking the government to revive the Soviet anti-satellite project. The State Duma Defense Committee will propose to the president and the government to restore the project of a high-precision complex for hitting low-orbit satellites and intercepting missiles. Parliamentarians believe that this will allow Russia to maintain a position in space defense. But experts believe that the resumption of a project launched in the USSR is impossible without a deep modernization of military production.
      In the recommendations of the November parliamentary hearings on aerospace defense, members of the relevant committee noted the need resume work on the Kontakt ground-air complex, designed to destroy navigation and communication satellites.
      “The Government of the Russian Federation should be instructed, when forming the State armament program for 2016–2025, to envisage the implementation of the necessary measures to resume R&D on the subject of“ Contact ”
      - stated in the document.
      On December 12, President Vladimir Putin spoke about the importance of developing strategic non-nuclear weapons and countering them in a message to the Federal Assembly. He noted that the concept of a “disarming instant global strike” needed to prepare a decent response.
      “We are well aware that the missile defense system only by name is defensive, but in fact it is an essential part of the strategic offensive potential. The development of new weapons systems, such as low-power nuclear explosive devices, non-nuclear strategic missiles, and hypersonic non-nuclear high-precision systems designed to deliver strikes in a short period of time and over a long range, is also of concern. ”

        The concept of a lightning fast global strike is to create a high-precision weapon that can hit a target on the other side of the planet a maximum of an hour after the order. The Pentagon has been developing the system for several years, however, it was under Barack Obama that work was accelerated. In the 2013 fiscal year, the Pentagon received about $ 200 million to develop the program.
        Initially, it was about replacing nuclear warheads of ballistic missiles (for example, Trident-II) with conventional ones. However, this idea had to be abandoned (at least temporarily) - the risk would be too great that the state that discovered the launch (it was primarily about Russia) could mistake it for an atomic warhead and strike back.
        In parallel, the idea arose of creating a completely new hypersonic missile-targeting weapon with a global range. The booster was supposed to accelerate the warhead to a speed many times higher than the speed of sound, and then he would plan in the upper atmosphere to the target. Falcon HTV-2 was tested twice, but both times failed.
        The much less effective turned out to be the less ambitious - in terms of design, speed and range - project of the AHW (Advanced Hypersonic Weapon) hypersonic shock system. The first test took place on November 17, 2011: a hypersonic gliding body (Hypersonic Glide Body) detached from a missile launched from Hawaii over the Pacific Ocean, which reached a speed of about Mach 8 (according to other sources, 5) and landed in the Marshall Islands (3,7 thousand km from the launch site). It is assumed that the system will be mainly based on the sea and have a range of 6-8 thousand km. In 2012, the Pentagon announced that its deployment was of particular importance in connection with the course of Barack Obama to strengthen US positions in Asia. The decisive test is scheduled for 2014.
        In this situation, the Russian Federation is taking steps to create its own supersonic precision weapon. Russian President Vladimir Putin held a meeting in late November on "implementing a program to develop and mass-produce high-precision long-range weapons." "Precision weapons are becoming an increasingly important factor in non-nuclear deterrence, perhaps even one of the most significant," the president said. "In fact, precision weapons are now becoming an alternative to nuclear weapons."

        “The Americans may have these weapons at the turn of 2017-2018,” Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov told Kommersant. “But by then we will have our answer ready.”

          SAM S-500 "Prometheus", 55R6M "Triumfator-M" - Russian anti-aircraft missile system (SAM), which is currently being developed by OJSC Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern.
          The S-500 is a new generation of anti-aircraft missile systems, in which it is proposed to apply the principle of separate solution to the tasks of destroying ballistic and aerodynamic targets. The main objective of the complex is to combat the combat equipment of medium-range ballistic missiles, and, if necessary, ICBMs in the final section of the trajectory and, within certain limits, in the middle section. From these means of destruction, cover will be provided for individual regions, large cities, industrial facilities, and priority strategic goals. Destruction of hypersonic cruise missiles, aircraft and UAVs of both conventional high-altitude and “waverider” type (hypersonic missiles with a speed of 5 Mach and higher). Destruction of low-orbit satellites and space weapons launched from hypersonic aircraft, shock hypersonic UAVs and orbital platforms ..

          During his yesterday's Address, the President said that the US missile defense system is defensive in name only: "We are perfectly aware that the missile defense system is defensive in name only, but in fact it is a significant part of the strategic offensive potential." Do you think he meant that the Americans are not installing anti-missile missiles in Europe, but missiles for strikes against ground targets, or that the missile defense system will be activated after a preemptive strike against us to destroy missiles that had time to launch?

      And my suggestion is simpler.

      Why do Americans want to further reduce nuclear weapons? Yes, because they understand that the use of ours and their arsenals is enough to send the entire planet to the Stone Age at best.

      At the dawn of the nuclear era, Soviet scientists proposed building a 200 mega ton bomb ship and sending it to ply along the territorial waters of America.
      I propose to build the so-called “Doomsday devices” several bomb buildings with a capacity of, say, 1 Giga ton. According to some calculations by scientists, an explosion of 200 from the Megaton bomb can provoke a chain reaction in the atmosphere that will destroy the entire planet. And after construction, you can reduce almost all types of weapons as unnecessary smile


      Well, if I have no jokes, I propose, in addition to the BZHRK, PGRK, RPKSN, to create underwater missile platforms, there is such a platform at a depth of 1000-2000 meters or deeper disguised as a bottom topography. With missiles capable of starting directly from the bottom, and in which case on command. . .

    Allow me to disagree with you.

    - Germany - last year the Prime Minister was removed for theft.
    - Italy - the prime minister is constantly on trial for fraud and has already been convicted of one episode.
    - France - there is a convict and expelled from the Premiership for theft, fraud
    - Israel - the prime minister forcibly fucked everything that moved around ... Already condemned.
    - USA - Wall Street robbed all the foreign and OWN people. Today, 40 million Americans do not have their own homes, jobs, and no benefits.

      In vain, Americans think that they have already used nuclear weapons twice in two completely peaceful cities that did not represent any tactical or strategic interest. And I don’t remember that they asked for forgiveness for it, or at least recognized these actions as a mistake.

      And if in the USSR they did not have time to create their own nuclear bomb, it is not yet known what the world map would look like now.

    Tug of war with NATO is not a rewarding occupation; there is too much difference in the military budget. The answer should be asymmetric, able to cheaply and effectively neutralize the enemy missile defense. For example, it can be placed in space directed emitters of powerful EMP, such as endatrons. Or, with the help of agents, throw a couple of dozen interference generators, compact, cheap, and disposable, to missile defense facilities. And turn them on periodically, for a short time, so as not to relax. For example, I myself made such a simple generator that my combat crew would not sleep. While carrying the database at night from the CP, it periodically turned it on for a short time, the soldiers of the operators are very invigorated when they see the light and bearing from the Chinese border. He grabbed the adrenaline and did not want to sleep at all. I am sure that Europeans will also be invigorated, maybe even think about the good and the eternal.

    all these stories about Iran, etc. we all understand that bluffing. A worthy answer is gradually going nowhere among the Americans. These goblins are trying by diplomatic measures to reduce the possibility of a retaliatory strike to a minimum. all of their stories about hyper, electronic, and so on are more like attempts in a latrine. Our Strategic Missile Forces are not sleeping, they just doze quietly, and so far, their single shots of air defense and in addition to weapons, against the background of our outdated nuclear club, are not very small. in fact, 10-15 nuclear charges are enough to solve all problems, and whoever brings them Bulava, Poplar or White Lebedushka, in fact, does not matter. After all, there is no alternative for nuclear weapons in the destructive effect. Therefore, while our strategic nuclear forces are still functioning, you can be calm, but there are still Chinese ants ... this is the problem.
    mfr? that Americans and their minions give another 10-15 years a quiet life, and the eastern neighbor ????

    Such statements do not remind you of anything ?!
    And here I was reminded, the SDI project. The same crap - we will build supersonic and high-precision, clicked on the button and the broads are already at the other end of the world.
    The same puffy challenge.
    And ours at once began to think up something so asymmetrical.
    I was presented with a picture — the Americans will decide which thread of the leader of the terrorist group to liquidate — just a button and a rocket for 10 billion dollars flew — they got lucky — they killed, and that the group now has a martyr, for whose sake thousands will die and a new leader has already been elected .
    Or whom they will bomb with this high-precision - the Chinese, 1, 2 billion people, well, they will kill 2, but there is little loss.
    If only to scare European democrats, then just right.
    Only here about Russia is not necessary. Because the calculations will begin, how many missiles we will launch in response, and whether the hypersonic missile will overcome our air defense systems.
    After what happened to the country and what happens next, it's all empty. Yes, in response, we won’t start anything - our mentality is like that.
    but about the underwater platform - this is the most option, it is now being ignored, but now the container arms market is growing. Why it is spent on training and maintaining soldiers, servicing equipment, it’s better to install a container and when an enemy is detected in an automatic mode, a missile is launched. There are problems with vulnerable detection, but you can solve the problem due to massiveness.

    The arms race should always be. Just do not build ships with armada and planes with squadrons. One FIG during the race, everything very quickly becomes obsolete. And you need to immediately do the development with an eye to use in the civilian industry and in everyday life.

    We were obedient, everyone was calm. Now, as in the years of my youth, the alarming arms race is alarming. Only as something more alarming, I’m not a subject of a superpower.

    As a response to the "lightning-fast global strike" and to increase the patriotism of our elite, I propose to use the "Dirty Bomb" - you detonate such a bomb near the "Cote d'Azur" and it will not be possible to live and skip the stolen there - the grass will not grow for a hundred years. There will be no problems with stuffing, our many bourgeois "nasty things" were taken for storage.

    Russia, as usual, has reliable allies ... it's the Army and Navy

    Our strategic nuclear forces ... and anti-ballistic and anti-space defense systems ... must be kept up-to-date to invest in the development of new systems that meet global challenges.
    No more concessions / agreements with the United States in areas that are advantageous to them ... we put our Fatherland at the forefront.
