American strategy Third Offset, what is it?

40
The US military budget for 2017 g shows that Washington gives priority to rivalry with the Russian Federation and China, as well as the strategy of Third Offset, the purpose of which is to gain military and technological advantages over Moscow and Beijing, writes JB Press.




"Offset is a strategy that neutralizes the advantage of opponents (Russia and China) due to the further development of technology," - quotes the publication RIA News.

According to the logic of the strategy, in order to confront Russia and China, “The United States needs to secure an advantage in five areas in the long run: unmanned operations, actions aviation extended range, subtle actions of aviation, underwater actions and integrated systems of engineering and integration. ”

"US unmanned operations plan to develop in three main areas: these are HALE (High-Altitude Long-Endurance) class drones, a family of unmanned combat systems Unmanned Combat Air Systems and UCAS sea-based combat unmanned aircraft systems," JB Press writes.

The Pentagon wants to achieve the inconspicuous actions of the Air Force using the new F-35 fighter aircraft, “but their invisibility technology is imperfect, which forces the military to look for ways to improve the stealthiness of the bombers,” the author notes.

"The strategy takes into account such types of weapons as a long-range unmanned aerial vehicle (successor to RQ-4 Clobal Hawk), a multi-purpose sea-based unmanned aerial vehicle (for example, X-47B), long-range bombers (LRS-B), electromagnetic rail gun and laser weapon, submarine Virginia Payload Module, ”the article says.

According to the author, “The Third Offset strategy consists of six main activities: blocking access to the regions you want to rival, submarine warfare, cooperation and interaction between people and machines, cyberwar, protection of guided missiles, creation of a combat strategy.”

At the same time "8,1 billion dollars will be allocated to increase the combat readiness of the Navy, 6,7 billion dollars to cybersecurity, 12,8 billion dollars to the rocket industry, 71,8 billion dollars to research and development," the newspaper writes.

        The only problem is the productivity of the machine, and as much as you need it will be so much. They live off the rest of the world.

          They live off the rest of the world.

          So what's the problem?
          If so, everything is obvious.
          Why does the rest of the world not live off of the Americans?
          Some kind of children’s sandbox is obtained justification.
          There is one answer to all - d "urak himself.

          Who prevents himself from creating such a "machine"?

            So bribery, blackmail and direct military pressure on the leadership of other countries has not been canceled. Brainwashing methods for people like you also work just fine.
            And the machine should be 1, otherwise the system will collapse, I think the second in the European Union will be covered.

            The problem is that 90% of the economies of countries around the world are tied to the dollar. Nobody will buy in tons of rubles, yuan, yen or even euros. But dollars is another matter. Even in spite of the continuously working "machine" dollars are a liquid commodity. At least for now. And as much as we would not like, the United States is not thinking of disintegrating, and their economy is crumbling. They transferred all the chaos to our hemisphere.

      According to news.usni.org, the U.S. Navy assigned the RAQ-25 Stingray official designation to a promising carrier-based unmanned refueling aircraft, proposed for implementation under the Carrier Based Aerial Refueling System (CBARS) program.
      According to the plan, unmanned carrier-based tankers RAQ-25, in addition to solving the tasks of refueling in the air, will also serve as vehicles on which the adaptation of "large" UAVs to the deck of an aircraft carrier and to use as part of an air group in combat conditions will be tested. In addition, it is planned that the RAQ-25 tankers will retain "limited" strike and reconnaissance capabilities.

        Well, the Americans found a solution to the problem of courage among their soldiers! Now for them will be fighting drones, which fear is unknown. But again, they forget Bismarck:
        never fight with Russia, it will answer all your tricks and tricks with its unpredictable stupidity!

        So come up with ours on their threaded bolt, cotter nut and gas wrench!

      This is a rhetorical question. It is important to correctly assess the reality of the implementation of their plans in life and to contrast adequate actions. Do not forget about the so-called ducks arms race. coulters in some expensive projects can bluff, as was already the case. The goal is clear - let the enemy follow the dead end path of development (with huge expenses) of what they just announced.

        1. I remember very well that the innovative Pentium processor is the development of a Soviet Russian engineer who later fled with this design to the United States for a long dollar;
        2. I remember very well that flat monitors for computers began to be produced at a Soviet defense enterprise, when "personal computers" did not exist in terminology, I myself touched these monitors with my own hands;
        3. I remember very well that the first global network was created 10 years earlier by Soviet scientists, and the Americans simply stole it through the corrupt "poor, no jeans" people;
        4. I remember very well that the first cell phones were created in the USSR for senior officials.
        And many many others.
        And America simply stole all this from the USSR, luring the well-being of the naive Soviet people.
        Now they have been eating commodity welfare. I think that many were very disappointed.
        And, I also remembered the film "Vacation at my own expense". There, the main character is taking a Soviet color TV set to "semi-capitalistic Hungary" at the request of his sister, it is not easier to buy such a TV set in Austria or Germany, because there, in your opinion, "quality" is better and cheaper.
        Personally, I had a German "Grundig" tape recorder, after a while, like the Soviet ones, he began to chew the tape, the sound began to float. The design was very beautiful. I am disappointed in western quality.

          Hello Alexey.
          According to the Pentium, in my Pentkovsky his last name. The principle of open architecture for computers was also proposed by our engineers. Soviet industrial computers in the 60s and 70s were ahead of those in the SGA. You can only throw the idea of ​​the ubiquitous distribution of home computers into the PGA piggy bank.

          I was disappointed in western quality

          The refrigerator, inherited from the late grandmother of 1985, has been working safely in the country until now, although it has replaced a relyushka worth 70 rubles. My mother's washing machine with a Siberia-6 centrifuge worked for more than twenty years, and it was necessary to throw it away, having previously removed the working engines (they are still in the garage) only because the tin case completely rotted away. B / W TV "Record VM 312", which is forty years old, is also in the garage in working order. True, the picture tube is practically kirdyk (the image is very dark). Always, when faced with Western disposable "quality" I remember this refrigerator. Not the most beautiful, but unkillable.

    Advanced technology is certainly great until a certain point, and when an electromagnetic pulsed hyper hammer hammer is being developed for hammering nails ...
    It’s like Zadornov’s:
    - NASA has invested $ 10 million in the development of a ballpoint pen, which will write in zero gravity, and ours, as they wrote in pencil, they write.

      It's true. It's just that in America they build frame houses (I built one myself, with my own hands, it’s durable, warm and comfortable) without using an ordinary hammer. And such, you know, stapler, which hammer in brackets hundreds of nails long. And they sculpt these houses in five days, and then live in them for about fifty years ...
      Their strategy is correct. All states should think so - you need to have superiority over a potential enemy. And they chose the right direction. It's another matter in the first place whether they will pull the promised. Their "super-modern" weapons are very unreliable and ineffective. And secondly, we need to look for opposition, and assuming that they will basically succeed.

        A friend lived in the SGA for eight years. He worked in construction. Now returned to their homeland. For the season he built a frame two-story house on screw piles. Everything as you say, fast, relatively cheap, not bad. The builder himself is by education, I am a supporter of capital construction, which is probably why he still has not built his house. Although I have plans for 10 years. In the form in which I want, I do not pull financially, and in which I can, I do not want.

      There is another option: to saturate all potential "partners" of the United States with cheap but effective enough weapons, to beat the quality with quantity. At the same time make a lot of money (no matter in what currency, even in kind) for new developments!

    The Americans decided to follow the beaten track. Race of weapons and the creation of internal instability.
    They believe that this is how they destroyed the USSR, so they decided to continue the same strategy. Only here there is a nuance, now it is necessary to compete with the two powers. And will their printing press overheat ?!
    Or are they just bluffing, like with the "war in space" and SDI ?! Rather the latter.

    all this will come out with a blunt cut of American dough by American military companies. They still can’t understand that the world has changed a lot since the beginning of the 90s and instead of developing means of attack they themselves may need defense equipment.

    You can only welcome the decision of the Americans to let down the mountain of dough. And we need to develop our ideas and our strategy and tactics, and not get into super expensive projects. It turned out to install gauges on boats and DPL, so we need to rivet them as much as possible. And to develop air defense and electronic warfare. Then their drones can be stupidly turned off, and not create your own. To develop aviation in its own way, not like the F-35.

    After this, it’s worth thinking about us how to be afraid or .........
    To begin with, their system of education is based on emigrants, that is, they bought all the scientists and now they don’t have that school of knowledge in elementary knowledge, I don’t want to say that they are really stupid at that very close to that. Here they have many kulibins who can build to create something worthwhile but this worthwhile is built on the simplest knowledge without accurate calculation, etc. yes rockets fly ships float. that's exactly the swim. and planes hover. I doubt that they are capable of creating a sort of super-duper knowhow to which we will not finish or understand. they upgrade a lot of the old without creating a new one, although their floating targets are strong, they also have a lot of shortcomings. You created them, but they haven’t yet let them have the necessary conditions for testing, and the soldiers are grown clearly in the incubator like the equipment itself.
    Of course, there are many interesting UKs and know-how, but as practice shows, all this needs to be further developed. And as practice shows, these raw non-improvements need to be shoved to the customer and fuck the loot, and only then for a fee we will finish the budget as well as shove the money into the pockets of the interested lobbyists.
