Anti-missile airship dropped in Pennsylvania, leaving 30 thousand people without electricity

92
Information Agency Reuters reports that in the state of Pennsylvania (USA) collapsed the airship, which defended Washington from a missile strike. The airship, which was used by the US military in the state of Maryland, broke away from the cables holding it and began free movement in the sky over the United States to the north. After some time, he was already seen over Pennsylvania.


Anti-missile airship dropped in Pennsylvania, leaving 30 thousand people without electricity


During his flight, the airship managed to hook several power lines with a cable, disrupting power supply in a number of localities. In total, about 30 thousand people remained without electricity in the eastern United States.

According to "BBC" the airship "quietly descended in a wooded area near the town of Harrisburg." The same media writes that no one was hurt.

News agency Reuters reports that the airship fell into a hollow covered with forests, flying nearly three hundred kilometers. During the flight, the airship, which monitored the air situation for the probable use of missiles, badly patched the nerves of the US Air Force — the F-16 fighter jets, which accompanied the air object interfering with the flight, had to be lifted into the sky.

In NORAD (United Command of Aerospace Defense of the United States and Canada) report that the airship was one of the elements of air defense and missile defense. It was equipped with a special radar that can track potential threats of a missile attack on the US capital.

        In the mid 80-ies of XX century. The command of the U.S. Navy suddenly again remembered the airships, preoccupied with the idea of ​​creating an aircraft lighter than air, which would carry out the tasks of early warning radar (DRL).
        Such an airship DRLO could provide timely detection of sea and air targets, including low-flying cruise missiles, as well as small boats that the mafia uses for drug smuggling. The command of the U.S. Navy has developed its requirements for the airship.
        He should have the ability to patrol over the ocean at a cruising speed of 75 km / h for more than 30 days with refueling from ships every 5-6 days. From the airship DRLO was required the ability to fly on instruments in adverse weather conditions and at night. In the competition for the development of such a miracle of technology, the world-famous Boeing company and the lesser-known Goodyear and Westinghouse joined in.
        Westinghouse successfully cooperated with the British company Hership Industries. They took the Sentinel 5000 English project as their basis and won a landslide victory. Their bellied airship, dubbed YEZ-2A, had a length of 125m with a diameter of 31,2. The spacious gondola housed double cabins, a shower, a separate galley and even a small gym. The joint Anglo-American design first came to the test in the early nineties. It all ended up in the fact that in 1995 YEZ-2A burned out during a fire in Wicksville hangar. However, the creators of the airship are not discouraged and still suggest, based on their development, to create a solid radar shield around the US sea borders.

      Military airships: what will be the Russian Air Force of the future - http://tvzvezda.ru/news/forces/content/201507061801-4yph.htm
      excerpts -
      The fact that inhabited airships can be armed with the Russian army has been said more than once. And so it became known that by the end of the 2018 year the Atlant airship will be built in the interests of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
      .
      Avgur-RosAeroSystems, which offers to produce airships for the Russian army, has the ability to conduct a full cycle of work to create aeronautical equipment. The design of the apparatus is carried out by its own design bureau, and multifunctional production includes a unique section for the assembly of shells and a modern welding line. There is also its own flight test complex and aviation training center.
      .
      The current airships are no longer the simple devices of the last century, and not even the Gindenburg giant. Their body is based on a multilayer composite fabric, and the shell is made of modern high-strength materials. By the way, the use of composite materials provides an airship and another plus: stealth for air defense systems. The device is transparent to radio waves and does not radiate heat. The shells are filled not with explosive hydrogen, as before, but with non-combustible helium. In modern airships, an autopilot system and other high-tech equipment are also used.
      .
      The military future of airships and balloons is very real. The Dolgoprudnensky Automation Design Bureau is currently working on the Peresvet device, which is capable of detecting Tomahawk and Tomahawk cruise missiles at a distance of up to 400 kilometers. As the representative of the Design Bureau Sergey Bendin emphasizes, the radar station installed at Peresvet simply “hangs” at a height of several kilometers, so it does not have “dead zones”.
      .
      Today, the emphasis is on transport and reconnaissance use, as well as on the use of these devices for warning and emergency response. In the 2014 year, the Military Industrial Commission under the Government of the Russian Federation included in the program “Innovative Transport of the North” the introduction of a monitoring system for the Arctic regions using airships equipped with thermal imagers, radars, laser sensors and video cameras.

        Russian Defense Ministry is testing Peresvet military balloons
        The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation together with the Dolgoprudnensky Design Bureau of Automation (DKBA) is testing new military balloons "Peresvet", a senior representative of the DKBA told RIA Novosti on Monday.
        Peresvet is a mobile reconnaissance complex designed for long-term holding (up to 15 days) of up to 3 kilometers of surveillance equipment, communications, early warning of enemy attacks and air support for ground operations.
        "The Ministry of Defense is interested in acquiring this equipment. But the decision on the purchase will be made only on the basis of the tests, which will last until the end of this year," said the representative of the DCBA.
        The official representative of the military department, Colonel Vladimir Drik, in an interview with RIA Novosti noted that in case of successful tests, the Ministry of Defense plans to acquire two tethered balloons per year until the 2014 of the year.
        According to him, the tests of the Peresvet complex take place on the territory of the Volsky aeronautics center (Saratov region).

      For how many years blurry conversations have been going on ... There is a company that has developed and offers reliable, inexpensive airships to everyone in a row ...

      Our MO still does not see the scope for them ... This is either stupidity, or the usual lack of money ...

      Although how many times it has been talked about the possibility of using airships as an element of airborne ballistic missile systems over the vast expanses of the Urals-Siberia and indeed ... Both cheap and cheerful ...

    During his flight, the airship managed to hook several power lines with a cable, disrupting power supply in a number of localities. In total, about 30 thousand people remained without electricity in the eastern United States.

    Wow! A new word in the conduct of hostilities! The balloon trawls all the wires below, cutting off the enemy’s communications and power lines! Really dangerous thing! That’s because cunning Americans came up with such a child prodigy and decided to deceive everyone by calling it some kind of “missile defense airship”! wassat

    I apologize, corrected "I didn’t get up, but only planned!"
    Avgur-RosAeroSystems holding plans to build the Atlant airship by the end of 2018, which can subsequently be used in the interests of the Russian Ministry of Defense. About this "Interfax" said the vice president of the company Mikhail Talesnikov.

    “At the end of June, the advance project of an innovative vehicle, the Atlant airship, will be protected, moreover, we are talking about two modifications at once with a carrying capacity of 16 and 60 tons,” he explained.
    The first stage of development work on the creation of the airship will be completed in December. It is planned that by this time a layout of an innovative balancing system will be developed. “In 2016, the construction of the first instance will begin, the completion of its construction and the start of flight tests of a prototype with a carrying capacity of 16 tons and a volume of 30 thousand cubic meters are planned for the end of 2018,” said the vice president of the holding.
    Talesnikov stressed that no one in the world will get ahead of Russian development even in the medium term. “When unloading a payload at the point of arrival, the airship can become heavier, without taking on board ballast, only by onboard means, so that after unloading it is not pulled into the stratosphere. This system is unique, there is no such system anywhere abroad, ”he added,“ Coincidence? I don’t think! ""))))

      "And where is the super equipment that monitors the missiles?"

      It is in the pylon under the airship.
      it will be removed and transferred to another airship.

      In any case, the system of such airships is much cheaper than the satellite
      and much more effective than ground-based radars.

    The reconnaissance derzhandel came off and flew, closing high-voltage power lines with a piece of cable. He broke off a couple of days after the vacancy of the "airship ranger" from US NAVY. It happens ... One thing is interesting, is this one from whom the USA defended with all its "electronic intelligence power"? From Mexican illegal immigrants or from Texas cactus woodpeckers? What did he do there? As a version, I cut the American military budget, where a wrench from a trench tool stands like an engine from a hammer. It happens! How it happens!

      Such balloon complexes (and in no way airships!) Are used for very specific purposes. First of all, as signal repeaters. For example, the domestic complexes "Eel" and "Telescope", working on the "Perimeter", better known as the "dead hand". If the Yankees are exactly the same, why be surprised? Moreover, in the field of aeronautical engineering they always went ahead.
      And secondly - as a monitoring station and airspace control. A sort of sedentary "Avax" with very broad capabilities. I can assume that such complexes are needed by the NSA for their needs. The FBI are also needed to counter illegal immigrants and drug trafficking on the Mexican border.

    Russian in white, the airship was one of the elements of air defense and missile defense. It was equipped with a special radar capable of tracking potential missile attack threats in the US capital.

    Do you think most read? After all, you have to fuss. Well, the Americans have another state of emergency, the airship flew off, crashed and 30 thousand were left without light. And nobody needs to fall here. The wind or God forbid "Suddenly came the cold and ice" and more often sit without light for several days.

    I agree, it would be nice to hang over the immense "staple" of equipped rags capable of selectively jamming enemy satellites.
    If the ceiling is 50 km, then hang a garland on the trajectory of the cruises so that the enemy satellite is deaf and blind, and at the same time that it serves as a warning about a missile attack.
