The United States will invest in the new ICBM 2,5 budget of the Russian Defense Ministry


The United States plans to spend a gigantic amount on the creation of a new intercontinental ballistic missile, which should replace the Minuteman III as part of a package of measures to modernize all three components of the US nuclear triad.


According to Bloomberg, the only contender for the development of the new ICBM is Northrop Grumman Corporation, which will receive $ 13 billion for research work.

The total cost of the US program is $ 81,8 billion, which is more than two and a half times the entire expenditure budget of the Russian Ministry of Defense for 2020 ($ 29,77 billion at the current rate).

According to the contract, which the U.S. Air Force is going to conclude in 2020, new missiles should go into service in 2029.

Logic suggests that, with such budgets, hypersonic weapons should have appeared in the United States much earlier than in Russia.

However, if we recall the voluntary refusal of the American Boeing Corporation to participate in the tender in connection with the “strongly distorted” requirements in favor of the Northrop Grumman Corporation, then it is easy to guess that we are talking about corruption in the American military-industrial complex.

The extent of this corruption can only be guessed by the mismatch of the money spent on the result.

    The more they spend, the more lobbyists will appear. The more lobbyists appear, the more the budget will be inflated. This will require new lobbyists ... Let them spend money with minimal results.

      Well, what do you personally want to say? Our lobbyists have something to strive for? Or we have different budgets with the USA. And the lobbyists have different appetites. Although lobbyists are for Russia with its economy and standard of living, any lobbyists for death are similar. Your answer, please. hi
