US experts: C-400 near Kaliningrad may make Europe vulnerable

78
The US Air Force Command and American experts are concerned about the possible deployment of C-400 AIS systems and Iskander-M complexes in the Kaliningrad region, since this will "significantly strengthen the Russian exclave," writes columnist Dave Majumdar in The National Interest magazine. Article leads RIA News.


US experts: C-400 near Kaliningrad may make Europe vulnerable


"It is very serious. Obviously, we will continue to follow this, but Moscow has every right to deploy (weapons systems) there, ”quotes the author of the US Air Force commander in Europe, Frank Gorenko, who commented on the likely location near Kaliningrad C-400.

Also, “the fears of the American expert community are caused by the fact that Russia can deploy the Iskander ballistic missile complex on the exclave territory, which has a high degree of accuracy of hitting with a range from 489 to 700 km,” writes the columnist.

However, these actions "are a logical retaliatory step by Moscow for the continuing expansion of NATO to the western borders of Russia," the magazine notes.

“Russia openly announced the deployment of Iskander ballistic missiles in Kaliningrad after the expansion of NATO to the East. Then we all perceived it as bluster, but it turned out that it was not so, ”the author of the Center for National Interests Paul Saunders cites the author’s statement.

      “Russia has openly announced the deployment of Iskander ballistic missiles in Kaliningrad after NATO's eastward expansion. Then we all took it as bragging, but it turned out that it was not. "

      It’s high time to deploy, on our territory we have the right to build at least a public toilet, even put up ICBMs with nuclear warheads and no one needs to be asked.

            The fact is, and the picture is beautiful. But the picture is flat, and in view of the fact that the Earth is round (as it is not sad crying ), in the east of Lithuania we see everything that flies above 10 km, over Latvia - 25 km, and over Estonia - 35 km. The same picture applies to Poland - we see almost nothing south of Warsaw ...

              And of course, look about a single center for managing the country's defense. But he grew up from missile defense / air defense centers.

            Calm down already - nobody needs you, including the EU with its dead economy and scanty population, well, perhaps the United States, to tease Russia and to collect intelligence.

      And it seems like a long time ago; 2 divisions in Elektrostal (In 2007, the first division was deployed, in 2009 the second division was set up).
      2 divisions in Dmitrov (deployed in 2011).
      2 divisions in Zvenigorod (deployed in 2012).
      2 divisions in Nakhodka (deployed in 2012).
      2 divisions in the Kaliningrad region (deployed in 2013).
      2 divisions in Novorossiysk (deployed in 2013).
      2 divisions in Podolsk 4th regiment in the suburbs (deployed in 2014).
      2 Division on the Kola Peninsula (deployed in 2014 year).
      3 divisions in Kamchatka differ from the previous ones by the presence of 24 launchers (3 divisions) deployed in 2014. This is the information from Wikipedia for 2014 that mattresses aroused late.

    Europeans and non-Europeans were warned that if elements of the Amer’s missile defense were deployed on their territory, they would automatically fall into the category of potential targets for our missiles. One thing is surprising - it’s not the Americans who express concern about the deployment of Iskanders. Apparently, it hasn’t come to Europe that they are just a gasket. And the S-400 is an exclusively defensive weapon and no one should be concerned about its placement anywhere in OUR territory.

    t deploy on exclave

    What other nafik "exclave"? One and the same territory is an exclave for the country to which it belongs, and an enclave for the country to which it does not belong. Moreover, if the territory is not completely surrounded by other states (for example, it has access to the sea), then the prefix "semi" is added.
    The Kaliningrad region is an exclave for Russians, and for other countries (including Mr. Majumdar) an enclave, or rather a semi-enclave.

    Of course, the American "experts" have grounds for concern, and all the more so since the S-400 in the Kaliningrad region actually reduces to "NO" all the costs of amerovskoe missile defense systems deployed in neighboring NATO countries (and in fact, forward-based attack weapons)! They were crying their money and no one believes that the deployment of missile defense systems in NATO countries is directed against Iran, and now North Korea! And about our Iskander, right here to the very point, it's like a neighbor's cat who got into the habit of shitting on " our porch "and our answer, like that of a real owner, is adequate, and only one GOD and the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the RF Armed Forces, V.V. Putin! Remember "Calibers" gentlemen "democratizers"!

    For two years now, one little thought haunts me. Why not, for example, put Iskander on ships of the Buyan type? Moreover, data on the range of Iskander missiles is slowly leaking out over 500 km. And now God himself ordered to take advantage of the situation, since they have conceived a rather large series of "Buyans" of increased seaworthiness of project 22800 "Karakurt". And, if they were equipped with the "Caliber" and "Iskander" through one, I would take the maximum acceptable dose on my chest with great pleasure! drinks The link would be extremely effective: a very maneuverable low-altitude "Caliber" and a highly maneuverable "Iskander" falling from a height good Yes, and then, in addition, an iron "excuse" will be born for the land "Iskander". They say that on land we have only up to 500 km and not a centimeter further, but all long-range ones are on our ships! Yes Yes. winked
    It’s a pity that these are only my dreams. Yours faithfully hi

    Really really so stupid when they told you about the expansion of Nata, did not listen. What kind of bragging is there when there’s not at all a friendly military block at hand.

    The Amerans slipped their leaky missile defense, and the European suckers and are glad - became targets. Have your security been greatly enhanced?

    "American experts: S-400 near Kaliningrad could make Europe vulnerable"...

    Well, with Iskander everything is clear ... But how the Russian defensive air defense systems affect the security of Europe is not clear ... Or did the squirrel come to someone after the New Year holidays ???

      "Squirrel" has nothing to do with it, although, in principle, you need to drink less, but the fact is that the S-400 completely exclude the possibility of using amerovsky missile defense systems (of course with other missiles) against our territory UNPUNISHED, so the jackals howled!

    (“Russia openly announced the deployment of Iskander ballistic missiles in Kaliningrad after NATO enlargement to the East. Then we took it all as bragging, but it turned out that this was not so,” the author of the statement of the Director of the Center for National Interests Paul Saunders quotes.)
