    US militarization of space Empty US militarization of space

    Post  kvs on Fri Aug 28, 2020 6:50 pm



    The doctrine statement of the US Space Forces says that in the name of "national interests" the US intends
    to apply offensive space-based tactics and not just defensive.    This is an open admission that the US
    intends to put attack assets into LEO and even perhaps into higher orbits.   This is the way it is being
    interpreted by Russian specialists.

    It is the wet dream of yanqui genocidalists to defeat any nuclear response to their first strike genocide
    plans.   That is why they really, really, really want to park all sorts of weapons into orbits over Russia
    that can be used as instant and ongoing blackmail.   Musk's Starlink is a Pentagon funded project closely
    linked to these ambitions to control near outer space and to terrorize America's designated "enemies".
    This is delusional since it is predicated on the notion that Russia will be unable to do the same thing to the
    USA.   Russia will respond and all the bitching by the US about Russian inspector satellites will not give
    it any advantages.  

    Funny how the US and its bootlick NATzO fake stream media are attacking Russia for
    "militarizing the Arctic" on its own soil but ignore the aggressive ambitions of the USA in space.
    It is clear that the US intends to rip up every treaty that limits its hand.   The decider clowns who rule
    this toilet believe they have innate supremacy in all aspects of humanity.   Everyone who does not
    lick their balls is an "enemy" to be disposed off.    Russia has been facing such demented western idiots
    for over 1000 years.   None of them succeeded in wiping Russia out and the self-absorbed yanquis will
    not succeed either.   They are repeating the same doomed behaviour pattern of all the other western
    crusaders, they give themselves too much credit and give Russia way too little credit.

    And this is why Russia needs to work on its own spaced based weapons too. Time for complaining is over.

    It wasn't particularly urgent even 10 years ago. So it is hardly "complaining instead of acting". Russia is clearly acting on this
    yanqui aggression as it emerges into the light. If Russia starts beating the shoe against the podium and too early, then it will
    be all Russia's "fault".

    We saw what the Russian response was to the withdrawal from the ABM treaty... I look forward to finding out their response to this in a few years time... I am sure EMP weapons as modules that can be attached to every satellite they launch in the future will be part of the solution... the irony is that the US is very space oriented in terms of intell so they have rather more than anyone to lose from this sort of conflict because when this is over earth orbit might become too destructive a place to pass through so missions to space will have to end... and communications satellites once they are destroyed wont be replaced either...

    Time for Peresvet to get some action.

    The problem is that Peresvet can only be effective in good weather conditions?

    Giant EMP cannon would also be an option.

    Russia will likely launch thousands of EMP devices into the same orbital planes as the yanqui orbital weapons and fry them if needed.
    Satellites are only able to function in certain gaps in the Van Allen belts and will not survive any EMP attacks. EMP emissions include
    a high magnetic component which cannot be stopped by Fraday cages or any metallic skin. The sort of thickness a metal skin needs
    to have to attenuate an EMP attack is beyond anything that is reasonable. Musk's Starlink satellites for sure will not have any defense
    against EMP. The yanquis cannot move their satellites into different orbits at will since the high energy electron fluxes in the Van Allen
    belts will fry them. A quarter inch aluminum skin is not defense against electrons with near MeV energies that can go through 15 cm
    of aluminum.

    If that was the case then Peresvet would've never been accepted in to service because large parts of the Federation experiences harsh weather all year around. It's a nuclear reactor powered nuclear-pump laser, which means the laser beam is enhanced with a beam of gamma radiation and (most likely) microwave radiation. It's not just a Laser, it's a Graser and a Maser rolled in to one. A 3-for-1 special.

    It is for use against EO systems which are also only good in good weather conditions...

    We also really don't know much about the system, but being a first gen system there is likely enormous room for improvement and development... it is a good start.

    One thing we should never do is assume that Russian designers didn't deal with the problem of clouds and precipitation at all altitudes. Magnum is likely right and that it is
    a nuclear grazer which can punch holes through layers of water in any state.

    But it will not be the only solution Russia can develop. And EMP mines or cluster bombs in orbit is rather feasible. Any ICBM launch can be accompanied by an EMP mine
    barrage delivered with ICBMs also. But I think it is better to deploy an EMP "Starlink" to send the yanquis a message early. These idiots actually think that Russia is so
    poor and incompetent that it can't even do this.

    Here we go, the yanquis are laying the ground work for their program of space militarization by accusing Russia and China of doing it first.
    Really? Give real examples you lying c*nt. Inspector satellites and anti-satellite missiles are not by any stretch "militarization" of space.
    The bloody hypocrite yanquis are planning to deploy actual weapons complexes into orbit. That is the definition of weaponization of space.

    Yanquis should not delude themselves. They have no chance of achieving any military primacy in space. None whatsoever. And
    any attempt to park weapons platforms into orbits over Russia will be met with Russia taking that trash out. Let's see the yanquis
    convince the world that this would justify WWIII.

    They are so predictable... blame Russia for breaking the rules so they can then withdraw from the treaty and then breaking it themselves... except with no evidence that Russia broke the rules in the first place...

    Russia just needs to be clever and do stuff that is their worst nightmare... for instance the INF treaty gone.... OK... make enormous numbers of IRCM.... intermediate range cruise missiles... 3,000-5,000km range from ground launchers so they don't count as strategic weapons and fit them with multiple small nuclear bomb warheads. Design them to have retractable undercarriage and take off from normal airfields or strips of motor way.

    If they demand they be limited by proposed new weapons agreements call them UCAVs and not cruise missiles... Twisted Evil
