US general says US ready for 'Star Wars'

Washington is planning satellite wars with Russia and China and is ready to start this evening. This statement was made by Brigadier General of the US Space Command Jesse Morehouse. The statement of a high-ranking military leader is quoted by the English newspaper The Guardian.

According to Morehouse, the US is ready for conflict in space after developing anti-satellite Technology countering threats from countries provocateurs such as the Russian Federation and China. He noted that Russian aggression and China's desire to become the dominant space power by mid-century left the US no choice but to prepare for orbital battles.

If anyone threatens the United States or any of our interests, including allies and partners with whom we have mutual defense treaties, we are ready to fight tonight

Jesse Morehouse said.

The military official noted that four countries - China, the United States, India and Russia - have already tested anti-satellite capabilities by destroying their own satellites with missiles from Earth.

Russia and China are working on spacecraft capable of anti-satellite operations. China has launched a satellite with a robotic arm capable of grabbing other satellites. In addition to weapons that lock onto, crash into, or shoot down targets, there are other methods that jam satellite broadcasts or damage equipment with lasers, chemical sprays, or powerful microwave radiation.

    The general forgot about the barrel of nails from the Soviet general!

    There are several ways to improve hypersonic missile capabilities and ability to penetrate and outmaneuver the defensive shield of PAC-3, SM-3 and THAAD air defense missile systems, which are anti-ballistic missile systems designed to intercept short-, medium- and long -range tactical missiles, cruise missiles, and air-breathing threats, such as aircraft or drones at low, medium and high altitudes. Some of these ways include:

    > Increasing the speed and maneuverability of hypersonic missiles, which would make them harder to detect and track by the air defense system radars and interceptors.

    > Reducing infrared heat signature and increase the stealth of hypersonic missiles, which would make them less visible to the air defense system sensors and more likely to evade countermeasures.

    > Developing counter-countermeasures for hypersonic missiles, such as decoys, jammers, or chaff, which would confuse or overwhelm the air defense missiles and reduce their effectiveness.

    > Employing multiple or simultaneous attacks with hypersonic missiles, which would saturate or overload the air defense systems and increase the probability of penetration.

    > Exploiting the gaps or weaknesses of the air defense systems, such as the limited coverage area, mobility, or reload time, which would create opportunities for hypersonic missiles to strike their targets.

    > Leveraging space-based sensors and communications to provide timely and accurate situational awareness and guidance for the missile by using satellites to receive information about the enemy's location, defenses, and countermeasures.

    > Developing new kill mechanisms such as directed-energy weapons or kinetic impactors to destroy or disable the enemy defensive shield missiles by using alternative ways of defeating the target other than conventional explosives or warheads.

    > Varying the flight trajectory and speed to avoid predictable patterns and evade tracking and targeting by changing the course and velocity during flight through the atmosphere, making it harder for the enemy to detect and intercept.

    By varying the flight trajectory and speed, hypersonic missiles can also adapt to different scenarios and overcome environmental uncertainties such as wind and temperature variations.

    It has now been demonstrated that a system like the Patriot can track 32 targets at once (1 shot = 1 target)...

    Russia's monthly production capacity is currently 5 hypersonic missiles, with a reduction in this capacity expected in 2024-2025.

    Raytheon's monthly production capacity is 50 rockets, which is expected to increase by 30% by 2023. Subcontractors are not requested.

    As with the 1942-1943 "ships against Ubut" strategy, the United States is thus capable of producing more weapons than can be mathematically destroyed.
