The US has nothing to bomb Russia. And I would like to ...

As the saying goes: whoever hurts something, he says that. Recent public speeches by senior officials of the United States Air Force eloquently show that their soul is out of place mainly because the military branch entrusted to their command does not have sufficient forces and means to launch nuclear attacks on our country and China. The directly harrowing details they provide, of the miserable situation in which the US strategic bomber aircraft found themselves today, could perhaps be pitied. If it were not for a clear awareness of the fact, what exactly are the plans hatched today at the Pentagon and the White House regarding Russia.




“The condition is worse than ever ...”


Statements, which we will discuss below, were made during the aerospace conference held by the US Air Force Association. The tone was set by none other than the head of the Strategic Command of the US global strike forces, General Timothy Rey. According to this senior military official, the United States needs at least 225 strategic bombers to “effectively confront Russia and China”. Today, their number (and even that is purely nominal), alas, is only 156. The General claims that the quantity he called was not taken from the ceiling at all, but was removed by means of “special studies”. So to find out how the topic of these studies sounds? “What is needed to not leave a single Russian or Chinese alive?” Well, something like that, probably. The experts in the field of military aviation gathered at the conference vied lamented that today the country's strategic bomber fleet is in a terrifying situation. It is no secret to anyone that the V-52, V-1 and V-2 combat vehicles that make up its foundation were created in the last century. Moreover, their content and technical the service also leaves much to be desired.

According to the mid-summer of this year, for example, out of the available 61 B-1B Lancer bombers, only six are suitable for combat missions! That is, less than one in ten. Lieutenant General David Deptula cut the truth of the womb with the directness of a retiree, who already, in fact, has nothing to lose. He bluntly stated that because of “chronic underfunding and inadequate resources for the past two decades,” the US Air Force has turned a hell of a thing. They, according to Deptula, are not just “out of date”, but in general “are in the state of least combat readiness in the entire history of their own existence.” Just think - during the years of the Cold War, the American army had 401 bombing squadrons of "strategists", and now only 312. Shame! However, at this place, Heather Wilson reassured everyone, until this spring, who served as secretary (minister) of the country's Air Force. According to her ardent assurance, by 2030 the United States will have at least 386 operational squadrons capable of “bringing democracy” to the whole world. Well, this lady knows better - the relevant decisions were made at a time when she was the one who led the department.

Another "invisibility" ...


What are the Pentagon going to fill with these squadrons, which are available only in the project, if things are so lousy with the available military vehicles? Washington is betting, first of all, on the creation of the next “miracle of hostile technology” - the strategic bomber B-21 Raider. According to information voiced by the current head of the US Air Force, Matthew Donovan, they have already begun assembling it in the California city of Palmdale, where the 42nd plant of the US Air Force is located. The business is familiar to factory workers - it was there that the manufacture of B-2 Spirit bombers previously went. The creator of the new “superweapon” is Northrop Grumman, which in 2015 won a tender for its development and construction. It must be said that they managed to do the sketch design right there at the Stakhanov pace for the USA, and they are allegedly already working on the first copy of the combat vehicle. If you believe the general, Stephen Wilson, his first flight should take place already in December 2020 - from the factory, the aircraft should “fly over” to the Edwards air base, where its flight tests will be held in strict secrecy. So far, the work is moving on schedule and it is possible that the announced short deadlines will be met.

Of the latest weapons, it is clear, of course, extremely little, but some details still leaked. It will be executed, like its predecessors, using the technology of the “flying wing”. The creators promise to make the B-21 "virtually invisible to radar," and, accordingly, almost "invulnerable." Well, we already heard that, it seems. Something there was burning on the land of Yugoslavia ... It was also “invisible” - until the ground crashed. Naturally, no one hides that all the "stealth modifications" of the bomber are "an answer to Russian S-300 and S-400 air defense systems." Which once again confirms the speculation as to who this aircraft is actually preparing against. No less characteristic is the fact that Raider was initially “sharpened” precisely for nuclear strikes. According to the developers, he will immediately receive “all the necessary systems and software” for this purpose. True, at the same time, for some reason, it is stated that for carrying nuclear weapons the aircraft will be certified only “several years after being adopted”. Here it is somehow hard to believe. With great difficulty, given that the initial order for this combat vehicle, already received from the Pentagon, according to reports, is 100 units.

... And the deadly "old men"


While the future of the US Air Force’s “wunderwaffe” is being forged at a rapid pace in sunny California, repairs and modernization of the “old horses” - B-52 Stratofortress bombers - are in full swing in Oklahoma. Let me remind you that the first of the combat vehicles of this series took to the air in 1951, and they were put into service four years later, and were produced until 1962 (in any case, it was then that the last B-52 was put into the army). A total of about 750 such aircraft descended from the conveyors. Accordingly, today their average age is 55 years, but at the same time, the "grandfathers of American bomber aircraft" are still quite awake and deadly. Two dozen cruise missiles, which, for example, can carry the latest modification - B-52H, this is no joke to you. Now there is not only routine maintenance of these machines, but also their significant modernization. For example, Raytheon, according to an order received from Boeing Corporation, is developing for the B-52 a fundamentally new radar station with an active phased antenna array. In fact, this class of equipment is now used on aircraft of the F-15E Strike Eagle fighter-bomber level, but here they decided to "be generous" for five-minute antique bomb carriers.

There are very serious reasons for this. According to reports, it is not the “oldies” who are going to exclude from the composition of bomber aircraft and replace the expected B-21 Raider at the Pentagon, but much newer models - the B-1 and B-2. As mentioned above, the vast majority of the B-1B Lancer by now have turned into practically unrepairable trash. No, it is theoretically possible to bring them “to life”. But, having calculated the cost of this procedure, the financiers of the American military department were in panic. This is just the case when the option “paint and throw away” seems to be the most realistic and rational. New bombers will definitely come out cheaper! With the B-2 Spirit, the situation is even sadder. As it turned out during operation, the "stealth coating" of this "miracle of technology" is mercilessly devoured by the action of the most common ultraviolet. Simply put, it melts under the rays of the sun. It’s not just a plane, but some kind of Snow Maiden ... To maintain a bomber in a combat-ready state, he must be in a special hangar, where he has to create a special "microclimate", which is necessary for this terribly capricious "sissy". Airbases capable of fulfilling such a whim, only a few units will be gathered all over the world. Well, and to whom, one wonders, is this needed, at a cost of over 2 billion dollars per unit ?!

Most likely, under real circumstances today, pilots of strategic bomber aircraft of the US Air Force will have to fly another 52-30 years on the B-40. This is no joke - according to reliable data, the corresponding decision to extend the life of the "old people" until 2050, or even until 2061, has already been taken by the Pentagon Air Command. Well, a centennial bomber, this is cool, of course, but somehow not very formidable - even with the latest radar. Given that the B-21 Raider is going, in the most optimistic version, to rivet 10-15 pieces a year, then something obviously does not add up with the amazing pace and volume of building up bomber squadrons.

At the same time, I can’t say what the state of the American “military power” is that upsets me at least a little. Crowning over him, General Timothy Rey, whom I mentioned at the beginning of our conversation, claims that the insufficient number of strategic bombers "puts the United States in great danger of an enemy attack." Excuse me, Mr. General, since when did the “strategists" suddenly become a means of protecting their homelands? In modern times, ballistic missiles (and now - hypersonic weapons), they will help you if something happens, like a dead poultice. No need to be cunning - all those hundreds of squadrons of bombers that you dream of creating are mainly just a weapon for delivering the first strike! It is very good that in the foreseeable future they will exist, most likely, exclusively in the sick imagination of the “hawks” from the Pentagon.

    The Anglo-Saxons will not calm down until they destroy Russia. Therefore, there will be no peace as long as England and the USA exist in their modern form. In the USSR they understood this, and therefore they tried to push the war from their borders. And now everything is "blazing" along our borders, not without the help of our government. Or maybe from inaction? What Ukraine alone is worth.

        Well yes! Here are just historical facts that claim the opposite:

        Only a few months after the end of World War II, the US senior leadership turned to the military with instructions to develop plans for an attack on the Soviet Union. On November 3, 1945 (that is, just two months after the surrender of Japan), a report of No. 329 from the Joint Intelligence Committee was submitted to the United States Chief of Staff. The first paragraph of this document read: “To select approximately 20 targets suitable for strategic atomic bombing of the Soviet Union.” As early as December 14, 1945, the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States would issue a directive stating, among other things, that: "The most effective weapons that the states can use to strike at the Soviet Union are the available atomic bombs." Since the end of 1945, one military plan of war with the Soviet Union was invariably replaced by another. The debut American plan of war against the USSR under the name "Pincher" was ready on March 2, 1946. In subsequent years, an employee of the American headquarters managed to draw up a huge number of plans, putting their development almost on stream. One by one, the plans for Bushweeker, Crankshaft, Hafmun, Cogwill, and Offtek saw the light of day. In 1948, the Americans introduced the Chariotir plan, which included the dropping of 200 atomic bombs to 70 Soviet cities. Thus, each new day could turn the Cold War into a real planetary conflict. After the formation of the NATO bloc, Washington gained more allies, which means that the military potential of the United States also increased. The plans of the American military became more cruel and cynical.
        On December 19, 1949, the Joint Chiefs of Staff approved one of the most famous plans for military aggression against the USSR under the name "Dropshot." In terms of the thoughtfulness of its actions, the plan exceeded Barbarossa. In 1952, American President Harry Truman said: "We will wipe out any cities and ports that will need to be destroyed to achieve our goals."
        But all this remained only harsh rhetoric. The third world war did not start, but only for the reason that the USSR had more and more nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles appeared. The American plans for nuclear strikes against the USSR in the 1940s and 50s were not fantasies or fiction. They were really worked out and analyzed. The Americans themselves have declassified their programs.


        https://topwar.ru/74867-amerikanskie-plany-yadernyh-udarov-po-gorodam-sssr.html)

        Americans were only held back by the FEAR of retaliation from starting a war with the USSR, and later with the Russian Federation, as a result of which, at a minimum, they would suffer unacceptable damage, and at the very least total destruction.

        Quote: Savigne

        Yes, yes! I agree that the United States is fighting continuously, if not directly, then by the wrong hands, "hybrid", now, if you take only the period from 1941 to the present:

          Why shouldn’t they do this? The USSR completed its work for the Anglo-Saxons during the course of 2MB. Then each for himself. And for this, all countries are developing plans for attack and defense. You can rest assured that the USSR had similar plans.

          In fact, a full-fledged nuclear umbrella in the USSR appeared only in the 60s with the adoption of Yangel missiles. Prior to this, rare German missiles (FAA successors) were not particularly dangerous for the United States. And before they were launched, the Soviet Union could completely undermine nuclear charges only in its backside.
          But the United States, however, did not attack the USSR. Although the time for this they had a whole carriage. I doubt that the USSR in such a situation would have shown such loyalty to the United States.

          Do not throw beads in front of this individual - it’s stubborn. It is enough for him to ask only ONE question - how many wars has Russia unleashed and how many Americans (and Anglo-Saxons in general)? And with him everything will become clear immediately. This question is crucial in sticking the label of Russophobe and hater of Russia. Try it (if you have not decided on the evaluation of this entity). Most of those present here have already made a conclusion and do not enter into discussions with him - a humpback grave will be corrected ... or a shovel.

        You yourself have explained everything. France is not a real threat, like Pakistan. They can cause damage, destroy - no. The only country capable of wiping the SGA and Britain into radioactive powder is Russia.

        They can imagine any danger for themselves, depending on the benefits of the moment. But this does not justify the aggression of the Anglo-Saxons.

      The Anglo-Saxons will not calm down until they destroy Russia.

      So, Russia needs to "reassure" the Anglo-Saxons.

    What do you mean - nothing? And miniature nuclear bombs for whom the hegemorrion riveted, on the basis that Russia would not risk responding to the local use of nuclear weapons.

      Our strategists will be newer. Tu-95 finished production in the beginning of the 90s, the supersonic Tu-160 is now produced in Kazan. Tu-22M3 upgrade under hypersonic "Dagger" and return the refueling bar in the air.

    They want money. Of course, in a quiet time to serve, for example, 750 old B-52s, you don’t need to - what about China ...
    But you need money for the service staff, but everything old is worn out ... (the same F-22).

    We also stated 10-15 years ago. And the tanks are not the same, and the planes are not, and the submarines are noisy - give money urgently ...

      I agree again. wink
      Not everything they have is so bad with the bombers in the Air Force, at least much better than everyone else. laughing But everyone wants money, not all the same to spend on the fleet, in space and on marines in different "warships" around the world laughing - pilots also want ...

      Despite the fact that, in itself, this bomber aircraft in the fight against the Russian Federation or the PRC, if at all applicable, is minimal ... But these are already details, and MONEY IS NECESSARY! laughing

        Exactly.
        But it’s applicable al no - everything is applicable, the tactics have long been known, like with us and the Jews - from afar with bullets or distracting attention .......
        The whole question is, that the flights cost, and considerable ... In vain, perhaps, there is nowhere to find such information about our aircraft ... only you can navigate through yusovskie ....

          ... about the applicability of heavy bombers: in our time, air defense systems are already designed to intercept and missiles with several independently moving warheads. And they are really capable of intercepting it. The entire calculation, at the moment, of the strategic strike forces of the United States to fight the Russian Federation (and the USSR recently) was based on the fact that, in essence, "overwhelm" all air defense systems with the simultaneous blow of a huge amount of their means. That is, the bet that something still will not be intercepted, and this is enough to cause significant losses. Intercepting an airplane, practically any, for the air defense system of the Russian Federation does not present any difficulty at all - compared to a missile, it is a slow and easy target. That is, they, if they fly, then simply to certain death (and "stealth" too wink) or, theoretically, in the “second wave” of the strike, despite the fact that almost all air defense systems will be neutralized by the first. In another way, they can no longer be applied in a conflict with a country, such as the Russian Federation. I think that with China it is about the same, although I honestly do not know much about their weapons systems.
          The Americans, as usual, and their own calculations on the actions of the enemy are built from their own theories, hence the expensive missile defense systems on the ground and in the air. Thank God that the leadership of the Russian Federation was smart enough to go the other way - to rely on the inevitable retaliatory strike, creating means capable of overcoming any existing missile defense system. And it really slows down the enemy. Because it is impossible to repulse everything that is currently in the arsenal of the United States, nor to “overwhelm” them with missiles so that they are not able to fight back, the Russian Federation is not able to. I don’t know about China wink

            Tse is true.
            However, the experience of Israel’s bombing of Syria, when nobody just sees the planing bombs on radars, shows that there are many different tactics for using it.
            You named two, but there are more of them ...

            And: IMHO, there are big doubts about “death”. At the end of the year, at the sea borders, the Far East threw a meteor at 6 Hiroshima. Ours did not notice him at all. We noticed the Americans and Yapi, managed to visit and take a picture.

            This is to "Interception of an airplane, practically of any kind, for the air defense systems of the Russian Federation in general is of no difficulty." Then 6 Hiroshima was not noticed at the borders, but for sure the creeping cover-up aircraft with electronic warfare ....

      It is not even a matter of “confidence”, but of knowledge. On the other hand, there is constant talk of a military conflict with Russia. Moreover, it sounds everywhere: from the TV, from the Internet, from the pages of foreign media. It is impossible not to notice this.

        It's like that. But another factor to consider. If there is an imaginary or real threat, then you have to strengthen the army and upgrade weapons, that is, increase military spending. For example, if the US has nothing to bomb Russia, it means they need to develop new weapons. This means that the US military-industrial complex will receive new orders and earn more money. In order for their business to flourish, you need to periodically scare the layman. Although, maybe they have there, in America, the truth is so bad with weapons.

      This is NATO’s mental state, they always want to bomb, and not only Russia. And at NATO, Uncle Sam is the boss. Remember, over the past 20 years they bombed Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria still ironed from time to time. It turns out, on average, they bomb someone every 4 years.
