Armi nucleari

Una decisione in controtendenza con la situazione attuale , come enfatizzato dai passi dell'articolo pubblicato da " the drive "  

" ...Whatever the Air Force expects the Turkish contractors to do, with the work expected to run through at least 2024  (  =  lavori completati o contratti aggiudicati ? ) , at least a portion of the contracts could very well become moot. U.S. relations with Turkey have been steadily eroding since a coup attempt against Erdogan in 2016 and have experienced an even more pronounced chill following the Turkish military's decision to purchase Russian S-400 air defense systems the following year.  ... " 

e  "   ...  If this is necessary, together with our delegations, we will close down Incirlik if necessary,” President Erdogan said in an interview on Turkey's A Habertelevision network on Dec. 15, 2019, following U.S. lawmakers' passage of a resolution recognizing the genocide of ethnic Armenians in the Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century. “If it is necessary for us to take such a step, of course we have the authority.   .... "  

Se tale bando non è dovuto all'inerzia della burocrazia ( es. : era già stato  preparato da tempo come serie di lavori previsti , senza tener conto dell'evolversi della situazione ) , può trattarsi di una pressione  sul mondo economico turco del tipo " se ce ne andiamo perdete l'indotto " .

Siamo alla guerra di parole , per adesso , ma una posizione più chiara dovrà essere espressa . Quest'anno di saranno le presidenziali e la cosa potrebbe diventare oggetto di discussione.

Essere pronti alla rappresaglia ... se attaccati ...


The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Rocket Force has conducted a nuclear attack survival exercise where troops in an underground missile facility had to endure extreme conditions and make sure they could still launch nuclear counterattacks.
During the undated exercise, a Rocket Force brigade mobilized into the launch bunker at an undisclosed location and completely sealed themselves off from the outside world, as the troops readied for combat, China Central Television (CCTV) reported on Wednesday.
The bunker was then struck by a mock hostile nuclear attack as the troops inside, fully dressed in protection suits, carried out contingency plans and operated missiles for upcoming counterattacks, according to the report.
They also simulated a situation where missile fuel leaked after a hostile strike and a troubleshooting team was immediately deployed to repair. 
Tactics including a fast missile condition check, rapid logistics, bunker defense and hasty launch were also practiced, CCTV reported.

A margine della Red Flag 20-02 ...


Exercise Red Flag is underway with the U.S. and some of its tightest allies fighting a mock air war over the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) in southern Nevada. 
Either in conjunction with the exercise or independent of it, there is a lot of testing currently going on over the same area. 
Case in point, this test F-15E Strike Eagle assigned to Eglin Air Force Base carrying an inert version of America's newest variant of its long-running B61 series of nuclear bombs, the precision-guided B61-12.

“I have built a nuclear – a weapons system that nobody’s ever had in this country before. We have stuff that you haven’t even seen or heard about," Trump told Woodward. 
"We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before. There’s nobody – what we have is incredible."

Oh si,"il mio sforzo è  più  lungo del tuo", ma mi chiedo se il mondo si stuferà mai di leader irresponsabili e arroganti, più occupati a parlare alla pancia del volgo, che a fare il bene del proprio paese con saggezza, competenza e lungimiranza. Sorry, ma non ho resistito...

Ah boh, come al solito "cose sue". Però qualcosa di nuovo c'è sul fronte GBSD. La notizia è di 2 giorni fa:


E infatti era già stata segnalata, a suo tempo, nella discussione "Next-gen ICBM" ...

Si, ma Trump lascia intendere che si tratti di qualcosa di disponibile, mentre il Next-gen ICBM è di là da venire, oltre ad essere un vettore e non la bomba cui sembra riferirsi.

E' vero ... ma Trump, al tempo stesso, afferma che si tratta di un'arma sino ad ora sconosciuta ... mentre quelle che vengono ipotizzate dai vari commentatori sono note da tempo ...

Ad esempio ... https://fas.org/blogs/security/2020/01/w76-2deployed/ ...

Su "Il Giornale" di questa mattina Gian Micalessin tira in ballo addirittura lo X-37B quale potenziale vettore di armi nucleari o, addirittura, elettro-magnetiche ... ma anche questo, nonostante il velo di estrema segretezza che lo avvolge, è noto da parecchia anni ...

Quindi ?

Quante ne ha la Russia ?


Russia is in the middle of a decades-long modernization of its strategic and nonstrategic nuclear forces to replace Soviet-era weapons with newer systems. 
In December 2020, President Vladimir Putin reported that modern weapons and equipment now make up 86 percent of Russia’s nuclear triad (Russian Federation 2020a), compared to the previous year’s 82 percent (Russian Federation 2019a). 
He additionally noted that he expects that number to rise to 88.3 percent in 2021. 
As in previous years, Putin’s remarks emphasized the need for Russia’s nuclear forces to keep pace with Russia’s competitors: “It is absolutely unacceptable to stand idle. The pace of change in all areas that are critical for the Armed Forces is unusually fast today. It is not even Formula 1 fast—it is supersonic fast. You stop for one second and you start falling behind immediately” (Russian Federation 2020a).

L'intenzione dell'Amministrazione Biden di ritirare dal servizio la bomba termonucleare ad alta potenza B83 ha scatenato un dura opposizione da parte dei membri Repubblicani del Congresso ...


Congressional Republicans are pushing back against the president’s plan to retire an aging nuclear weapon, decrying the effort during a series of hearings this week dedicated to the administration’s fiscal 2023 budget request for nuclear forces and atomic energy.
The hearings previewed what is likely to be a renewed debate over retiring the B83 megaton gravity bomb as Congress drafts the annual defense authorization bill, starting in June. 
The Air Force also plans to retire the only aircraft capable of carrying the B83, the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, by 2032 at the latest.
“The rationale of this administration to retire the B83 gravity bomb without a replacement capability is not clear to me,” Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., the ranking member of the House Strategic Forces Subcommittee, said at a Tuesday hearing. 
“In fact, it is my understanding that not only is there no replacement capability, but the process to identify candidates for a replacement capability has not even yet started.”

E che è, un pandoro e scade? 

Ci sono cose che vengono sottoposte a manutenzione periodica, altre che nel tempo si deteriorano tipo il PBX delle W68, ma se aspetti il decadimento totale di uranio e plutonio…
