Pentagon will deliver concrete bombs to Turkey

30
The Pentagon has signed a contract with two US companies for the production of a batch of BLU-109 concrete bombs with a view to their further delivery to the Turkish Defense Ministry, reports MIC with reference to the edition of Defense News.




"The Pentagon has signed a contract for 682,9 million dollars for the supply of Turkey an unspecified number of guided bombs," the publication said.

"The agreement was concluded in a timely manner, since we are actively involved in asymmetric hostilities and need guided bombs," the representative of the Turkish Defense Ministry quotes the publication.

According to DN, the contract for the supply of bombs and their components has been concluded with the companies Ellwood National Forge and General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems.

According to the information, “a bomb can pierce about a meter-thick layer of steel-reinforced concrete, and then, thanks to an electromechanical fuse, undermine a charge with an explosive and destroy the contents of the enemy’s bunker.”

As the Ikhlas agency reported earlier, the Turkish military are preparing for a “large-scale operation against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)”.

The agency, citing sources, claims that "the operation provides for the complete destruction of all shelters, camps and fire points of terrorists inside and outside the country (in northern Iraq)."

“For defining targets, reconnaissance planes and drones were used, the list of objects for striking has already been prepared,” writes Ikhlas.

“At the moment, the goals in a number of counties in the provinces of Diyarbakir, Siirt, Hakkari, Sirnak are mainly defined. The exploration of PKK sites in northern Iraq continues, ”the newspaper notes.

    The Turkish leadership, apparently, is going to bomb its people, because our air defense will not let Turkish planes fly into Syria, let alone into Russia.

            Indeed! For some, war is a disaster, but for the United States and Erdogan, their mother is dear!
            What then is the American "truce" in BV with militants, except for the IS and Al-Nusra units, if Erdogan's Turkish genocide of Kurds in BV continues everywhere?
            Washington is playing a double game in the region, arming Turkey, which is waging war not only with the SAR and Assad, but everywhere with all Kurds in the BV.
            Turkey is an aggressor! Erdogan and Co. are war criminals! And the USA is a hybrid-military provocateur of destabilization of the situation in the oil regions in the BV!

      It can be assumed that the initiative to draw in bombs comes from the striped: buy bombs or seize proceeds from the sale of stolen oil through the IMF!

    The next Ottoman genocide is going to be held. Rather, they are already conducting. Now against the Kurds. Thousands of people have already been brutally murdered in the provinces with the Kurdish population.
    And after all, not a single liberal confusion in Europe, and in general in the West, does not carefully notice this. Turkish Kurds have the full moral right to fight for the lives of their women, children and the elderly in all available ways.

      For two years, 1845 cases were opened in Turkey on charges of insulting Erdogan http://pravo.ru/interpravo/news/view/126753/

    It is very interesting. Especially in connection with the current inadmissibility of NATO ships in Turkish waters and the ban on visiting the German Defense Ministry about. Lesbos.

      As for this omission, it is thought that this is just part of the show. Why were the Americans in their waters? To track the movement of illegal immigrants. But the Turks banned. Oh, what naughty ... Americans need those illegal immigrants like a goat button accordion. All of this, I think, should not be taken seriously. Because it only seems like the appearance that Turkey is not subordinate to the United States. This appearance has been sticking out more and more lately. But the Turks will not refuse states anything serious.

        There are probably not Americans, but Europeans. This is a stream of refugees that Europeans are interested in

      This is not the Chimeric to calm down. And the rest, behave to the extent that the Chimeric allows them.

    I recall:
    BLU-109: the mass of the warhead is 240 kg, the entire bomb is about 907 kg. The ammunition has a steel shell with a thickness of 25,4 mm. The bomb is able to penetrate reinforced concrete structures up to 1,8 m thick. At the same time, the free-falling ammunition is mainly used with JDAM or Paveway III targeting systems, which turn it into a guided aerial bomb - UAB.

      While the mattresses are spinning, it may happen that the Turkish military from among the generals, in the good traditions of military coups, have time to arrange for Erdogan to carry out the body before the start of large-scale hostilities.
      Then they will still be able to save Turkey and crawl out of the suffocating embrace of the mattresses. Otherwise, the Turks will be khan, tk. 40 million Kurds of which 17-18 million live in Turkey, the strength is not small.
      I hope that Erdogan did not clean up all the "wrong" generals.

    It can be assumed that with such supplies the United States encourages the Turks to act actively in Syria (it is unlikely that Kurds could set up bunkers in a country like Turkey), that before Iraq, Barzanian, Kurdistan gets along well with the Turks and it seems that Syrian oil is being mixed up with Iraqi the knowledge of the Kurds.
    It is not for nothing that just recently the Turks announced the EW complexes (tested on the Syrian border)
    And outwardly, Erdogan’s political activity becomes clear - a trip to Baku, to the Saudis; opening or laying of a Turkish military base in the Persian Gulf ...
    I am sure that the main goal is to expel Russia (in the Libyan scenario) from the Mediterranean, locking it in the Black Sea.
    And this at the moment is possible only by attacks on the Syrian army, well, if necessary, then the military bases located there.

    Pentagon to deliver concrete bombs to Turkey ...

    Or maybe to this tune with nuclear stuffing as well as its European satellites. Fighting with foreign hands is America's favorite pastime. And then they will speak like a hero of Evdokimov with an oar after a bath, but, ah, I don’t know where everything came from.
