    "The new missile defense system is aimed specifically at North Korean missiles," the release emphasizes.

    In fact, North Korea is betting on long-range artillery, promising to raze Seoul to the ground in ten minutes from howitzers. Or do we already have missile defense intercepts howitzer shells? So left excuse. In general - there are more of our submarines on duty on the ground off the coast of the United States - and let them build their missile defense on health, it will help them a lot ..

      That's right, North Korea has 4500 barrel artillery at a distance of 15 km from the center of Seoul.

        Damocles sword in the Korean version. On the other hand, the RK has its own trunks, too, they will not allow Seoul to be completely destroyed.

      Seoul is not all of RK; its destruction will not lead to surrender.

    Something briskly, the Yankees began to vparivayut their THAADs. Yesterday they did the same with Israel ... Can anyone tell us about the effectiveness of these complexes?
    And something else tells me that North Korea will not use missiles against a country that is in the artillery range, but proto stupidly crush manpower and tanks.

    Interestingly, what "kickbacks" from the mattress military-industrial complex of the South Korean Serdyukovs? Or from a "pure heart"?
    It is clear the stump that all this fits into the general strategy of Pindo-Stan.

      And what will the DPRK pay? If necessary, we can agree on the deployment of our complexes on their territory, which will protect us and them. We have good relations with South Korea and we are interested in maintaining them.

    This step is aimed more at pressure on China, although for us there is also little positive, but we have just the answer.
    But let the whale * yezy get scolded, otherwise they are used to sit aside and act quietly.

    So it is necessary to withdraw from the INF Treaty. Quarters gliders deploy missile defense at our borders around the perimeter. We need missiles of the Chinese df-15b type to combat radio-contrast surface targets such as aircraft carriers and destroyers with missile defense. This will allow in case of war to destroy missile defense facilities and will allow our missiles to achieve goals in the United States.

      - it's time to include the answer to the question "is it profitable for the Russian Federation to leave the RIAC" in the FAQ yes

      Quote: Bakht
      According to the letter of the Treaty, the Russian Federation has the right to withdraw from it unilaterally. Since so many copies break around this question, it means that I am not the only one who assumes its harmfulness. I see only the environment of the Russian Federation with missile defense systems and an offensive weapon system that can quickly reach the country's territory.

      But as many copies break for NO EXIT from the contract.
      Russia's environment with missile defense systems - it is more a product of the targeted, everyday impact of our propaganda.

      "Surrounding" us with ABM bases looks like this.

      <br>• ONE missile defense base in Romania (readiness level - early 2016), oriented by the central radar to the southeast towards Turkey, Iran (general viewing area - 240 degrees) with 24 missile defense systems. The range of the radar is up to 1000-1500 km.
      • A couple of ships in the Mediterranean Sea (with the periodic entry of one of them into the World Cup).
      • The TAAAD system in Turkey, the radar in Turkey (and possibly in Israel), focused on Iran.

      And that’s all. The remaining ships are in the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean, and by no means close to our shores. Outage и VPR located in the United States. When will be in Poland - is unknown. And whether it will be. What is the environment of missile defense systems? What about offensive weapons? Has something changed in the last quarter century?

      Quote: Bakht
      These are the problems of Russia and Russians. If you consider the Agreement to be beneficial - take the trouble to comply with all of its clauses. Consider unprofitable - it's time to get out of it.

      And we observe it. AND the exit is not profitable for us now. The re-equipment of the Strategic Missile Forces and the NSNF is underway, and it is technically impossible to "hang up" the production of several hundred MRBMs. And we will disrupt the rearmament of the Strategic Missile Forces / NSNF, and we will receive the MRBM in the required quantity in 10-15 years

      - here - a rather voluminous discussion of this issue. Highly recommend reading (discussion specifically) yes
