Sivkov: The new American Pershing will deprive the Russian Federation of the possibility of a retaliatory strike

After Washington decided to withdraw from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF Treaty), few have any doubts that the United States is burying its offensive arms control regime for the sake of the possibility (concept) of a preventive (preemptive) nuclear strike. Therefore, the opinion of the corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Missile and Artillery Sciences (RARAN), Konstantin Sivkov, expressed on October 11, 2019, deserves attention, because it concerns a new American medium-range missile.




According to a military expert, Washington will soon acquire such a new missile. Its main task will be the defeat of command centers of nuclear deterrence forces (SNF) of Russia. Sivkov is sure that the adoption of such missiles was the main goal of the United States, for which Washington donated the INF Treaty. He specified that the flight range of the rocket is about 3 thousand kilometers, and the accuracy of hit is 10-30 meters. He called this rocket a counterpower weapon.



We should expect in the near future the adoption of medium-range missiles of the Pershing II type ... It is intended for delivering strikes at Russian strategic nuclear forces control centers in order to deprive our country of the possibility of retaliating a nuclear strike to the Americans.

- Sivkov said at a press conference in MIA "Russia Today".

We remind you that RARAN is a non-profit scientific organization that coordinates research in the field of rocket and artillery sciences. It was established on April 5, 1994 by a decree of the President of Russia “in order to revive the traditions of Russian military science and to develop scientific research in the defense complex” of the country.

    Sivkov: The new American Pershing will deprive the Russian Federation of the possibility of a retaliatory strike.

    Sheer nonsense, sheer and, most importantly, it is carried not by another "sofa" expert sitting at the computer at home, but by an academician (and for what they are paid money, these academicians). We have submarines that are constantly on duty. It is enough for one boat to discharge its stocks of missiles on the enemy, and it is enough for at least one of the ten warheads of the rocket - to get into the crater of the Yellowstone supervolcano and that's it, America will fill up with ash.

      All these Sivkovs, Dandykins and other experts with academicians are still those specialists. Are they at test sites? Are you in design bureaus? Do they have an appropriate form of access to such things? They sit on the balance of the Moscow Region, read articles on the Internet, which are written by the same wiseacres, and then they pass it off as their deep thoughts. They go to all kinds of seminars and conferences, sit there and think for minutes when they call for a buffet table.

          Much less than you.
  2. Well, that’s nothing sensational, I think Russia also has systems for defeating command centers, and no worse!

      I think that Russia is simply obliged to have such systems, you simply can’t save on it, but you must try to get them as close as possible to the continental United States, Cuba, Venezuela, in Chukotka (36 km across the Bering Strait).
      1. Still on steamboats and submarines around America.

    The most interesting thing is that the United States said it would not allow Russia to install missiles in Cuba and Venezuela. Up to a military strike. Shoigu’s answer was that we don’t need it, we have submarines, the meaning is this. The US is openly preparing a strike and will wait for the next 90s, and then they will not spare us. The duty of our rulers to exclude even the thought of a blow to Russia, and not engage in blah, blah !! Or is this an advertisement for Putin? What, the US is only afraid of Putin?

    Before spitting in the direction of Sivkov, carefully read the article. Nowhere but the phrase headline -

    The new American Pershing will deprive the Russian Federation of the possibility of retaliation

    does not sound. If you look at another more trustworthy source, RIA NOVOSTI, there is nothing of the kind either. He only says:

    The United States will soon be able to adopt a new medium-range missile, designed to destroy the command centers of Russian strategic nuclear forces.

    As for the competence of Sivkov, he served for 12 years in the General Staff.

    In Soviet times, the location of the Pershing was tracked by the DRG. When threatened, Pershings were destroyed instantly ...

    Sivkov expressed his opinion at the level of a military expert on US medium-range missiles and it has a place to exist. Do not underestimate the enemy and think that ours is better and more, and higher, and in general we are brilliant. GDP has already given the command to develop medium-range missiles. And with the Pershing II missile, you need to think about how to neutralize it. If the United States rivets such missiles and NATO throws us all over, then will we have the means to eliminate them, couchmen?

    One such missile robs medical care of African Americans in New York State. Another such missile robs cancer care of Hispanics in Texas. And so on in the US states.
    A missile guidance station in Alaska will rob Alaskan Inuit of dental care.

      If there is such an attack on the part of the United States, then the rapid reduction of the States will begin. And there the Mexicans will throw back the United States in those places where civilians have to bury.

    To evaluate the knowledge of another, one can only possess knowledge in a larger volume than the criticized one. Since you have the rank of general, apparently, it is so. But often, from a longer wearing a cap, a dent (sorry, gyrus) in the head becomes already petrified.

    To counter such attacks by the United States, we just need perfectly prepared, powerful electronic warfare systems along the perimeter of our country, disabling all the guidance and orientation components of the electronics on these missiles, and in space we need to attach to each of their military satellites our own shahid satellite .. ..Here, in the comments, we are again engaged in hacking, but after all, we need to look at all threats realistically, and those ten nuclear submarines of ours will not save us from a massive missile attack from all sides of our perimeter, they have long been in sight of the Yankees, but BZHRK is simply necessary for us, and today, if not yesterday, tk. they are like a needle in a haystack, and it is useless to look for them on our countless railways. highways .... And if you think about it well, then no one will unleash a nuclear war with the same nuclear power, with a parity nuclear arsenal. In addition to political "get-togethers," we also have normal meetings between our high-ranking military personnel and the American military, and those are much more reasonable than all these Trump and Biden ... Look at the relations between Washington and Pyongyang, the North Europeans have only a dozen nuclear warheads , but Trump has it, like a rusty nail in the well ..., but the Yankees are afraid of them, although they are trying to threaten, because they remember very well those fifties of the last century, when they sent 45 thousand "zinc" from there to the shores of the Potomac.

    With the Americans it will be like with Monya.

    On the street met Monya and Syoma.
    “Syoma, I don't want to listen to gossip, but is it true or not.” They told me that Aronchik hit you in the face, but you didn’t react.
    - Monya is a lie! How did I not react, I fell ?!

    The author did not realize that this is not what the author came up with. If this were so, as the author writes, then they would have pitied Russia, just as Hitler had pity on the USSR.
