Tensions in Ukraine increased US attention to missile defense issues

32

Tensions with Russia in Ukraine led American lawmakers and former military leaders to the idea of ​​inviting the Obama administration to reconsider previous approaches to deploying ground-based missile defense systems in Poland and the Czech Republic, military.com reports 12 in March.


“There are military options that are not related to the entry of our ground troops in the Crimea. We could go back and restore the missile defense program that was originally there, ”said former US Vice President Dick Cheney. He recalled that there was a plan to deploy GBI (Ground Based Interceptor) long-range mine-based anti-missiles in Poland and a radar system for this system in the Czech Republic. But in 2009, this plan was canceled by the Obama administration, which decided to “reset” relations with Russia. Many American politicians are saying that President Obama should reconsider his policy towards Russia in the light of events in Ukraine.

“I think we should return to this program (GBI in Europe). This would be a very powerful signal from the United States. You cannot take what you want (reset policy) for real, ”said Republican Congressman Paul Ryan.

The Obama administration has adopted the concept of so-called. European Phased Adaptive Approach, i.e. instead of the long-range missile defense system GBI, place on the continent the components of the Aegis shipboard system in the onshore version (Figure). This system is known as Aegis Ashore, the program provides for the deployment of ground-based missile defense facilities in Romania to the 2015 year and Poland to the 2018 year.

The SM-3 IB anti-missiles will be deployed at the Romanian facility, and the more powerful SM-3 IIA with an increased range of destruction of ballistic targets will be in Polish. Both versions of antimissiles are designed to intercept short-range and medium-range missiles. In turn, the GBI anti-missiles were designed to destroy ICBMs that could be developed in North Korea and Iran.

The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) shipborne missile defense system is deployed on 28 surface ships, and the usual Aegis missile defense system is also deployed on ships of the Japanese, Spanish, South Korean, Australian, Italian, Danish and other naval ships, officials of the US Missile Defense Agency said.

“GBI is a heavy long-range anti-missile and a very fast interceptor. SM-3 anti-missiles are based on an anti-aircraft missile, these are relatively small systems, ”says Daniel Goure, vice president of Lexington Institute (Virginia). At one time, the Obama administration rejected the idea of ​​the Bush administration that the deployment of GBI interceptors in Europe is needed to protect the US coastline, the expert said. The idea of ​​a European phased adaptive approach is that the European missile defense system Aegis Ashore will be able to protect allies in Europe and the Middle East, the GBI system (bases in Alaska and California) will provide protection for the continental United States. Last year, the Pentagon said it would increase the number of GBI interceptors from 30 to 44 units.

Another possibility is to resume the development of a version of the SM-3 IIB capable of intercepting ICBMs, Gur said. Placing anti-missile systems of this model in Europe will have a strong pressure on Russia, the expert believes.

    Then, for a start, it's time to deploy Iskander in Kaliningrad and Belarus, start negotiations with Iran on the supply of S-300 to it, hint at the supply of S-300 to the north. Korea, demonstratively bring these complexes to Syria.
    I believe that Cuba would also like to place a certain number of these "anti-democratizers".

      Well, here are the first results, they cut the budget for the military, they made a mess in Ukraine in order to scare their own people and shake the money from them, look next year the military budget will be one trillion. Politics is where the money is.

      I agree. Plus, it seems that both in the Atlantic and in the Pacific on combat alert several of our submarines with ballistics on board. All of these missile defense systems in Europe are some kind of ridiculous and waste of money, I’m brushing it off.

    The US economy is not viable and rests only on the status of the dollar as an international unit of account. If, say, Russia, China and Iran simultaneously abandon the dollar by introducing another unit (for example, the energy ruble, which has been talked about so much), then the American economy will come in no time ... I don’t know which term is more scientific - “kirdyk” or "Tryndets"?

      So Iran after the sanctions has long abandoned the dollar. All (Westerners) thought that he would bend. And he is more likely alive than dead.
      I think that if two such powers as Russia and China begin to agree, then the other will catch up. And if we take into account that Russia, China, India, Brazil, Kazakhstan and Belarus are half the world's population, then this project can become fatal not only for the United States, but also the economic crisis will come.

    Another bubble is a scarecrow for the Russian Federation. There are no political and economic levers available, that’s sorting out all the options. This one is not worse than others. But no better. Or maybe they distract attention, because there was a conversation about the deployment of missile defense in Ukraine.

    We must give our informational response, stating that all countries that deploy US forces in Europe and especially in eastern Europe, Russia should consider hostile. And no longer call them partners. In addition, officially declare the NATO bloc aggressive.

      Just neither in Kaliningrad nor in Belarus "Topols" are needed! It's still an ICBM. But "Iskander" and the like are very much needed! And in the Crimea, it is necessary to install anti-ship missiles of long range and power, so that any American or other hostile dishes of any caliber are guaranteed to be sent to the bottom, preferably in the Mediterranean Sea!

    Putin built the doctrine of rearmament on the wreckage of a dying military-industrial complex in such a way that all fixed assets were launched to modernize the Strategic Missile Forces missile and air defense / missile defense. And you know what? It paid off. The balance of power is not something that would be preserved. He crossed to our side.
    There are no analogues of the RS-24 "Yars" that have been put into service and delivered to the DB. These missiles can penetrate any missile defense system. The number of separating heads is classified, although the figure is called 4.
    Poplar - M, which have been on the database since 1997, also overcome the US missile defense.

    The agility and high speed of the "poplars" and "yars" turned out to be a horror for amers. If the first in the first 15 minutes destroy (disable) all their mines and all missile defense, then the second destroy all the military and political infrastructure. All of their AUGs will also be destroyed, despite the mannerisms. The thing is that for their destruction (incapacitation for 10 days), a charge of 500 kt is required to hit within a radius of 10 km, and at the last stage Poplar can fly from memory and is not afraid of interference. The last stage is 3 minutes. How far can AUG go? - 3 km at maximum speed.

    And all their obsolete Tridents and Minnetmen are intercepted by the Triumph. All. With a probability of 98 percent. Even if 1000 missiles will destroy 980 and 20 will reach! And this is a priest! In the future, Russia has the S - 500, designed to intercept missiles that have not yet been created and are not expected in the next 20 years.
    Well something like that.
