Missile strike


In the United States launch three missile programs at once violating the INF.

After exiting the INF Treaty, the US will launch three missile programs at once.

The US Armed Forces are launching a number of missile weapons development programs. The budget documents for the 2020 year confirm that their direction is to strengthen and strengthen the impact force over long distances.

The highest priority is the program LRPF (Long Range Precision Fires - "High-precision long-range shooting"). Its significance becomes decisive in future operations in the event of hostilities, when the US military units cannot be sent to the theater of military operations, or there are great difficulties for this. We are talking about situations where the military will not be able to have a territorial advantage in order to counteract threats.

The new military doctrine recognizes the importance of the LRPF in "Multi-domain operations". In this case, we are talking about the situation when the army and security forces will have to coordinate their actions with the maritime, land, air, space and cybernetic spheres, which is required to pre-empt the actions of the enemy.

The US Armed Forces are planning to begin developing, already with 2020, three main land-based missiles. This refers to the mobile ballistic missiles, having an average range of flight. The plans and the creation of a future interceptor for anti-missile and anti-aircraft systems, medium-range.

After the United States withdraws from the INF Treaty, several billions of dollars are planned to be used to develop programs in the next five years.

An amount of 1,2 billion dollars will be allocated from the US budget for a land-based hypersonic missile development program. The customer - the command of the aerospace forces of the United States and the strategic command of the ground forces.

The draft says that its purpose is to create a prototype of a strategic armament system for striking at remote targets. Among them are A2 / AD long-range missile and artillery systems. In this case, the defeat should occur in minimum time and with maximum accuracy.

The plan provides for the combination of conventional hypersonic warheads with two-stage accelerators. The US military expects 2020 million dollars to be spent on this project in 228.

In the year 2021, the United States will spend a million dollars on a preliminary analysis of the project. Then, after conducting a critical analysis, preliminary testing will begin. For this provided 181 million dollars. Trials are expected to begin in the 137 year. It is planned to spend 2023 million dollars for this.

In 2019, the Pentagon plans to ensure the start of testing of two types of missiles. Their development and storage for thirty years were banned due to the agreement on the elimination of medium-range and shorter-range missiles.

Next, the US Army will spend a billion dollars on a new missile program within five years. It is called the “Medium Range Mobile Rocket”. This development has several names: “Medium-range rocket”, “INDOPACOM” rocket, land-based cruise missile. The program is associated with a mandatory operation in the Indo-Pacific region. The reason - there exists the possibility of testing weapons having an average range.

Americans are also busy developing a new interceptor for missile defense and air defense systems that have an average range. New radar for this yet. However, Northrop Grumman is working on the program. According to forecasts? The system will receive initial operational capabilities in 2022.

Now the role of the new system is performed by the upgraded Patriot rocket. Guided missiles with increased power and used to hit tactical ballistic missiles will be attached to it.

The amount provided for this program, calculated for five years, is 232,9 million dollars. Program implementation will begin in 2020.
