Media: US Air Force preparing for war in space


“The Pentagon fears that Russia and China are developing space weaponwhich will give them a potentially disastrous advantage for America in any future conflict. To counter this threat, the US Air Force launched a program called "Forces of Space Operations", designed to train "space combat pilots of tomorrow", "the resource quotes the article Mixednews.

In a report prepared for the American government, General John Heithen writes the following:
"Despite the desire of the whole world to avoid the militarization of space, potential adversaries consider it possible to use outer space to gain advantage over the US military, they are actively introducing systems to block space in the event of a conflict."


According to him, the new strategy "is aimed at protecting freedom in space, which primarily includes the protection of satellites and other orbital equipment used for military purposes - observation and reconnaissance."

The document does not specify exactly what methods the US Air Force is going to deal with the space threat, and what exactly should be understood by this threat.

"It is known that China has the ability to destroy satellites, while Russia recently tested a combat aircraft capable of flying into near space," the article says.

It is noted that $ 6,6 billion has been allocated for the development of "space protection schemes" in the United States.

        And look at the news on VO from July 14, 2016. It clearly says that a certain lecturer of the Strategic Missile Forces Academy branch, Lieutenant Colonel Aleksey Solodovnikov, invented the engine for an aerospace plane and have already begun to test it. At this point, the article has a rating of -24 / + 80. If most members of the forum believed in the reality of these developments, then to the probable adversary - God himself ordered that this be considered a real security threat from outer space. So, without knowing it, Solodovnikov began a new round of the arms race.

        Strategic Defense Initiative (Strategic Defense Initiative) - announced by US President Ronald Reagan on March 23 of 1983 long-term research and development program. The main purpose of the PIO was to create a scientific and technical reserve for the development of a large-scale anti-missile defense system (ABM) with space-based elements, eliminating or limiting the possible destruction of ground and sea targets from space.

        Its main objectives were to gain space supremacy, to create an anti-missile "shield" for the United States to reliably cover the entire territory of North America by deploying several echelons of space strike weapons capable of intercepting and destroying ballistic missiles and their combat units in all flight segments.

    Something modest, only 6 with a ponytail. It is necessary to tighten the Mask under this case. Here he will arrange PR and drag the money. Otherwise, the costs will not pay off. But seriously, there is not much to do without a reserve of energy in orbit. Ours announced the creation of a "space" reactor. And striped ears immediately tried to raise the buch and BANGE reactors in space. The danger of such a reactor is understandable - dropped one on Washington - and there is none (without any explosion, which is typical). But you cannot build a combat spacecraft on "solar batteries".

    People are judged by themselves.
    Even despite the fact that everyone suggests concluding an agreement on not placing weapons in space, only mattress and its lickers resist this.
    Like why? They won’t comply anyway.
    And here, the mattress accuses others of trying to militarize the outer space.

    They finally deciphered the abbreviation VKS, so the planning began to cut the money for the next wunderwales. The aircraft carrier stands, unfinished, the Zumvalts turned out to be wooden, the F-35 is still "afraid" (of dust, flies, cranes, frost, heat, depressurization) to cross out unnecessary things. A bunch of some kind of Okolonas projects, the most striking of which is the landing of the dragonHE ship's stage on the launch pad. Impressive, so what happened once out of 5, the coin also sometimes falls on the edge. Explain how they flew to the moon 40 years ago, if now they use our engines taking into account all of the above, even more so ... HOW?))

    You shouldn’t speak so dismissively.
    Americans are good fellows, from all over the world they accumulate "brains" in their laboratories. By the way, a considerable number of our and Chinese young scientists work for them, and they do not give their grants to just anyone - they select the best!
    It is here, to our great sorrow and to their universal joy, that Skolkovo has become a model. And their "Silicon Valley" has been delivering high-quality and demanded products "to the mountain" for 60 years already very regularly! And, unlike our Ministry of Finance, they do not spare money for science either.
    But we are straight "bursting with pride" - their rockets fly on our engines ... full of joy! They are pragmatists - what the hell is reinventing the wheel if you can buy it inexpensively, and it's better to invest money in something "breakthrough".
    One should not underestimate such a strong adversary as the United States - it may be "too expensive" in the future ...

    lingering bitter moan -
    and fell on the ground, and sobbed,

    But how can one help the family?

    no friends at the base
    and record for xnumx years ahead
    to the dear village council ...

    And, mournfully removing the medal from his chest
    outside the city of Washington,
    ripped off all their heads
    gas masks he;
    and fell, embracing his misfortune,
    letting out the last scream
    in full view of the capital
    tired veteran ...

    X-rayed the sun's disk,
    the veteran was gathering dust.
    And he walked past, scaring rats,

        Suppose he needs to fly up quickly, enter orbit, find a target and destroy it. I’m even afraid to think what will happen to this pilot during acceleration and braking.

      For example, the Boeing X-37. U.S. Air Force Spacecraft. It has been developed since 1999, flew in 2010, has been flying for 6 years.

      This is not a plane, this is an unmanned shuttle - it is launched by a rocket. A completely different technique.

        And here is the pilot-unmanned, the American Air Force is full of drones, also a completely different technique and what does it change? The main thing is that it belongs to the Air Force and, accordingly, the Air Force trains specialists who manage it and plan to use it. About this article - "the training of personnel from the ranks of the country's Air Force for space conflicts has begun."
        If the US Air Force launches an ax with a motor into orbit, then by this time they will have trained operators to control it, and the headquarters will have a department that will command where to fly and what to do there, or you don’t understand what “training” is and where do they come from "when necessary"?

    It is noted that $ 6,6 billion has been allocated for the development of "space protection schemes" in the United States.


    This is half the cost of one aircraft carrier. Not too Americans indulge their military space forces ..

    They finally deciphered the abbreviation VKS, so the planning began to cut the money for the next wunderwales. The aircraft carrier stands, unfinished, Zumvalts turned out to be wooden, the F-35 is still "afraid" (of dust, flies, cranes, frost, heat, depressurization
    ts) cross out the unnecessary. A bunch of some okolonasovskih projects, the most striking of which is the landing of the DragonHE ship stage on the launch pad. Impressive, so what that happened once out of 5, the coin also sometimes falls on the edge. Explain how they flew to the Moon 40 years ago if they use our engines now, taking into account all of the above, all the more ... HOW?))


    For comment - 5 points. To this topic . Surprisingly - but these unfortunate people were really there. There is such a word in Russian - to bounce. Here, my friend and I ventured this topic quite in due time - a conclusion, yes, they were on the moon, BUT a couple of times. Well, it can’t be that with that level of technology everything went like clockwork. And the pavilion shootings in front of the whole world were shaking, suckers. Who did you want to buy? Why was this necessary at all? Pontiranschiki.

    Yes, everything goes to these pollutants. It is not for nothing that astronauts wear epaulettes, and orbital stations were originally designed for military purposes. For them, special guns were developed for aimed shooting at space objects. And laser pistols for the battle of astronauts, we must assume not with the sleepwalkers ... And so on and so forth, and this is just what we were given to know, but given because of secrecy, only a small part of the military Cosmos that develops and is pumped up with weapons all sides, for almost 60 years!

          By presidential decree, manned flights from the RF Ministry of Defense were transferred to Roscosmos, and it turns out that the military has nothing to fly on. But, as it seems to me, if the need arises, either the cosmonauts will be "called up" for military service, or the military will be given manned spacecraft, or a VKS (aerospace aircraft) will be created for the RF Ministry of Defense on the basis of developments under the Spiral project or VKK (air -space ship) - an analogue of "Buran", or some other "Clipper". And at the present time, most likely, there are no tasks for military cosmonauts.

    The Pentagon fears that Russia and China are developing space weapons that will give them a potentially catastrophic advantage for America in any future conflict.

    The term "fear" in this case means that ours are definitely doing it.

    Not quite so, Nikolai. Igor Volk was engaged in a group under the "Buran" program. "Spiral", or rather its subsonic analogue, he was engaged in at a very early stage. He was not in the group that dealt with Spiral.

    Where is the money, Zin? laughing By the way, they have been building a railgun since then ... as well as combat lasers ... and beam weapons ... and where is all this?


    And nobody seriously, did not engage in full-fledged SDI in the USA. It was, by and large, a specially organized throw-in to promote the USSR for another arms race, now in space. Part of this program, some fragments by the Americans were being implemented, but on the whole no one was going to do this

    The US is preparing for war in space, On our engines? Or did they start the Death Star? belay

    How tired of these statements about our engines, about trampolines. Damn, the Americans bought engines for half a hundred flights, and we swell with pride: "Without us, Americans do not fly into space." They fly and how. On average, only 20% flights are operated on Atlasah-5 with our engines, everything else is on their own.
    From next year, manned flights on 3-4 types of American ships will begin (ours for information - will fly as early as 2023-2024). What shall we say? That Rogozin will once again "blurt out" ?? He has already spoken about trampolines, what will he say now? But the supply of engines to the Americans means jobs and keeping the plant afloat. The Americans pay for our ships and carriers. How many of our pilots will be now, at their own expense?

    Build - not build ... But we are waiting for orders for the RD-180.

    It is unlikely that the orders will be as significant as before. A dozen, maybe a couple of dozen engines. Or maybe they will not be, because at the output they have their own engines, with TTX comparable, and sometimes higher than our RD-180 ..

    Suppose, hypothetically, that this is a manned space plane. How long can a pilot of this aircraft be in orbit without harming himself?

    In this case, the X-37 is a machine gun. But nothing prevents you from making it in an increased size. Or use the same "Dream Chaser" as a military (combat) one. It is capable of lifting up to 5,5 tons in the cargo version. This is enough to accommodate several space-to-space or space-to-ground missiles on it. The active life of the Dream Chaser in orbit is 210 days. With a pilot, maybe a month. Make a military orbital station where such a videoconferencing system can dock - and here's a combat alert in orbit.

    And what can happen to him? Anything different from what it is now? Place this VKS (military space aircraft) on the same Atlas-5 or any other launch vehicle with the required carrying capacity.
    If necessary, departure can be provided quickly enough. Plus what I wrote above - the station in orbit and the constant watch there of these "combat spaceships"

    It turns out interesting things spin over your head for 1,5-2,0 years, dear, like the American mini shuttle X37B ...
    "... Former Chief of Staff of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Viktor Esin, is convinced that in terms of reconnaissance functions, the X-37B does not differ much from other spacecraft, however, its advantage is the ability to take weapons on board, including nuclear. “This is a multifunctional device,” he told the newspaper VIEW. - It may contain nuclear weapons. Now there is no evidence that they intend to place such weapons there, but its mass-dimensional characteristics make it possible to place such weapons there. "Indirect evidence that they can do this is their refusal to support the treaty on the ban on the withdrawal of any weapons into space by Russia and China to the joint disarmament commission."

    He noted that on board the mini-shuttle can be placed and hypersonic high-precision weapons in conventional equipment. “High-precision weapons within the framework of the program for developing a lightning fast global strike are probably their primary task. A treaty that prohibits the release of nuclear weapons into outer space still exists. But there is no ban on the launch into outer space of conventional equipment, ”he added.

    “Ordinary spacecraft do not have such mass-dimensional characteristics that it was possible to use military equipment. To do this, he (X37B) has increased maneuverability, he can quickly change the trajectory, decrease, so that you can use weapons, then rise again. His perspective, it seems to me, is these are combat modules ”, - said the general. "
