Renovation of the nuclear shield will cost the UK $ 256 billion

40
Replacing obsolete Vangard-class submarines equipped with Trident ballistic missiles and the subsequent maintenance of a new nuclear fleet will cost the British treasury £ 167 billion ($ 256 billion) reports Look with reference to the Reuters agency.




This was told to the agency by the head of the committee of the House of Commons on international affairs, Crispin Blunt.

"The given amount of expenses is actually an order of magnitude higher than the figures that the Tori government has so far voiced, mentioning 15-20 billion pounds," the newspaper notes.

Nevertheless, according to the United Kingdom’s Defense Ministry, “four new submarines will cost 25 billion pounds (more than $ 38 billion), and the cost of their subsequent maintenance together with rockets will be about 6% of the military’s annual budget. this year was 33,8 billion pounds ($ 52 billion). "

In the House of Commons, they calculated and concluded: “Taking into account the expected growth rates of the UK economy and its impact on the size of the country's defense budget, which should be at least 2% of the total GDP, by the end of the current program of the modernization of the nuclear potential of the United Kingdom, calculated before the end of the life of the Trident missiles in 2060, the total amount of state budget expenditures for its implementation will be 167 billion pounds. ”

The head of the Labor Party, Jeremy Corbin, a longtime participant in the struggle for nuclear disarmament, intends to firmly oppose the plans of the Cabinet to modernize the nuclear shield. He is supported by the head of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, who previously described the cost of these goals as "unjustified, overwhelming and immoral." And then it was still about the figures made public by the government, and not those that Blunt presented.

      so it will be necessary to apologize to 90% of the world's population

      Not enough apology

      The Germans still cannot pay to Israel laughing although maybe already - I didn’t particularly follow

      There are still opium wars together. So there is no forgiveness for them)

          Yes, unfortunately Vitaly, a nuclear shield is a very expensive thing, but it is also not necessary for those who do not own and support it, they walk in the slaves of Washington, we have a shield at the proper level and cool a lot of hot heads. servility to Washington, as they say, did not modernize their shield at the time, hoped for an uncle and let them pay, the avaricious pays twice.

              The nuclear weapons of neither India nor Pakistan are in any way connected with the United States. Pakistan helped with the finances of the SA, and with the brains of the PRC, India, supposedly, by itself .. It has been looking for American roots for a very long time.
              Israel, with what, but not deprived of brains. Moreover, in the 90's, so many stupid Russians left there (Jews with a Ryazan face) .. And, when the nuclear weapons were created, in England and France, scientists were no worse than overseas. It’s just that the states had temporary bonuses .. They did not have Comrade behind them.

      А Вы знаете ракеты лучше, чем "Трайдент"? Вот так, положа руку на сердце, или сунув голову в интернет? Дальность, кучность (КВО < 500 м), забрасываемый вес.. массогабаритные характеристики? 10-14 разделяемых боеголовок.. Может такие есть у китайцев, или французов, или индийцев. А кораблики бриты всегда умели делать получше многих.. И авианосцы (Куин Элизабет) и эсминцы (Дэринг)и ПЛ (Астьют) у них, возможно - лучшие в мире..
      А Трайденты можно и новые сделать.. Кстати, а много ли у нас новых ракет? Сколько раз мы Воеводам и Сатанам продляли сроки? Или Синевам морским? А как много Булав долетит до цели из залпа? Берут 1!!! ракету, год ее "облизывают", готовят к ГИ, а она летит секунд 30.. после чего "устает"..
      Бриты, конечно, "казлы", но недооценивать врага - чревато.

Если пойдёт замес - кого будут интересовать "договорённости". Под ширмой "угрозы" ЯО идёт создание гораздо более эффективного оружия. Шансов у сторон конфликта будет мало...

    The British would gladly become great again, but they will not allow sins. Attempts - in the light of a well-fed European existence - are not feasible. They will not tighten their belts for the sake of nuclear rearmament.

    supported by the leader of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, who previously called spending for this purpose “unjustified, unreasonable and immoral”

    После длительного личного общения с шотланцами и англичанами, из своего опыта, я пришёл к убеждению (и не только я), что эти две нации абсолютно противоположны по своему менталитету. После дополнительного изучения этого вопроса выяснилось, что предки шотладцов (scotch) и др. русичи имеют одни корни. Появилась версия, что этот термин в диалекте соответствует нашему "скиф", тому есть множественные доказательства. Отсюда похоже возникает и схожесть менталитетов.

    It would be nice if the British abandoned their nuclear arsenal and disarm. Moreover, there is a peaceful example of nuclear disarmament - this is Ukraine. Let the Ukrainians take an example - they utilized nuclear weapons, and the funds allocated for its maintenance can be used for other purposes. Where you can send money - as they say, options are possible.

    Serbian Prime Minister: weapons are one of the main topics of the upcoming talks in Moscow
    According to the portal RuSerbia.ru, Serbian Prime Minister Alexander Vučić, during a press conference before leaving for Moscow, emphasized that Serbia will always have a sufficient number of different types of weapons so that no one would try to attack this country.

    He also noted that the Serbian government is carefully working on the issue related to weapons, and this will be one of the main topics in the negotiations in Moscow.

    The Prime Minister of Serbia noted that representatives of the Serbian government are very closely following the actions of neighboring countries and will not allow any violations by the armies of other countries in the Balkan region. Answering a question about whether Russian arms will be procured, the Prime Minister of Serbia said that the Serbian government is primarily trying to develop the Serbian economy and wants arms production for the Serbian army to be carried out in Serbia.

    However, the Serbian politician explained that when creating the Nora self-propelled howitzers, the developers use the chassis of the Russian Kamaz. This is done for the reason that the Kamaz chassis can withstand more than thirty-five tons. According to Vucic, this is an occasion to discuss this with the Russian side. According to the prime minister, another reason is the 30mm 2A42 gun, which Serbian engineers put on the Lazar armored personnel carrier.

    Alexander Vučić also said that representatives of the Ministry of Defense of Serbia had already ordered transport helicopters, but would have to reflect on the acquisition of combat helicopters. "Sioux combat helicopters of the Kiowa have already been delivered to some neighboring countries," says Vučić.

    - We also need to think about acquiring ballistic missiles. We never want to fight with anyone, but we must be fully prepared and aware that Serbia has this kind of weaponry as an answer to those countries that think that Serbia is easy prey.
