The Pentagon recognized the lag behind Russia in the weapons of the future

The advantage of Russia in the development and creation of existing models of “weapons of the future” is so great that even the US military recognizes it.




The Pentagon spokesman, US Air Force Lt. Col. Robert Carver, said in an interview with the weekly Newsweek that Russia created hypersonic weapons, thereby creating asymmetries in combat capabilities and forcing Washington to work to eliminate them.

According to the American lieutenant colonel, the United States "for decades have been leaders in the study of supersonic systems", but at the same time "did not aim to use supersonic of technologies as a weapon. "

It is clear that the Pentagon representative avoided the “uncomfortable” question of journalists and made a good face with a bad game.

Another thing is surprising: no one asked Carver to explain how it so happened that the United States for decades has been a leader in the study of hypersonic systems, but in fact it turned out that they did not even have a test model of such weapons at a time when Russia was already adopting them?

Regarding the statement "The US never aimed to use technology as a weapon," the Pentagon representative should probably recall the atomic bombs dropped by the Americans on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at a time when no one on the planet had such a monstrous weapons.

    This lag is not due to the lack of folly of the Amers, but to the fact that until now they did not focus on this, paying more attention to the number of ships, submarines, aircraft, and at the same time underestimating Russia.

    But now they will unfold at full capacity, and I'm afraid they will quickly catch up.

    I would not want it to be that way, but given the diverse potentials of the Russian Federation and the USA, this option is more than possible.

    The "Pentagon Official Representative", even by the function of his position, only voices the "official point of view of the American military department" misinforming the enemy, and if he gives the press "leaks of secret information", then only those agreed with the higher authorities!
    Therefore, I wouldn’t trust his “soul-searching lamentations” about the alleged “absence” of the US hypersonic weapons (or his “asymmetric response” to it, at least the same unmanned spacecraft “X-37B”) (well, I would generally did not believe! smile )!

    In combat planning and forecasting the likely actions of such a powerful "partner", IMHO, it should be assumed that he already possesses equivalent or superior weapons and methods of effectively countering our weapons! And to think over all your actions taking into account such a probability so as not to get a “surprise”, which gives an operational-tactical (and even strategic ?!) advantage to the enemy!

    Indeed, in contrast to the economically and politically weakened Russian Federation, peacefully not thinking about any, even the closest, "cross-border goals (a special case of the" reunification of Crimea and Sevastopol with Russia "in 2014 was an obvious" hopelessly-forced measure "for the Russian authorities, otherwise, even then there would have been a ripening question of domestic political stability in the Russian Federation itself!) ", the United States (regardless of D. Trump’s" isolationist "creeps) are still aggressively pursuing their" hegemonic goals "and it is beneficial for them to" euthanize " vigilance of the "intended victims of his allegedly" weakness and incompleteness ", and not try to scare them from an attack with his" wunder-waffle "or" cartoons "about him ?!

    It’s not without reason that the modern neo-colonialist wars that enslaved our post-Soviet space in Washington were called “hybrid”, waged, for the most part, without the use of the US Army, mainly by bribing political and military local “elites” (who are only happy about this, which is beneficial for itself, American dominance, because the neo-colonialists leave them in their fodder places, and even used to significantly increase the status of the legalization of “overwork” and encourage wider access to “material goods” for “wards” rritorii)!

    And only for Russia and China, in the case of categorical intransigence of key "elites" in support of already sold local comprador officials, an open armed suppression of part of the armed forces (and supply bases), which still resist the "maidan" coup, may be required.
    It is precisely for such “targeted (totally suppressing“ decision-making centers ”and“ centers of resistance ”)“ actions that the United States needs its own “wunder-waffle”, which for the time being is classified as “non-existent”.

    “Praise (threats)” is the lot of the weak, not only the Chinese “Sun Tzu”, even my beloved grandmother, a Novorossiysk peasant woman with 2 classes of central vocational schools, knew this perfectly from her (more than 90 years) life experience. She warned not to be afraid of the “noisy menace”, who usually do not fulfill their “praises”, but to beware of the “harmless quieters” that suddenly hit in the back!

    In my opinion, this American lieutenant colonel “officially” fulfills the unfading Sun-Tzu covenant:

    Look weak to your adversary, let him check his superiority!
