The Ukrainians are believers.
Perhaps, the full knowledge that we have the ordnance to put them back into the stone age is more effective than any ABM system?You are welcome to your opinion but guys who are in the business suggest we don't have much in the way of stopping them.
SM-6 Missiles Are America's Only Defense Against Hypersonic Weapons Missile Defense Chief SaysThe US military's ability to intercept hypersonic weapons, as well as simply detect and track them, remains limited at best as threats grow.www.thedrive.com
Point is our aircraft carriers are sitting ducks.
And the F22 makes the rules of the game.The F35 is a total game changer.
That is all.
I think we are stuck in a WW2 paradigm. We had an opportunity after the wall fell to bring Russia in but chose instead to encircle them as enemies.
With China US business with the help of the greedy politicians have decided to enrich them and enable them while ignoring some of their abuses (kind of like we do anyone that has what we want - Saudi Arabia?). What is the overriding principle of US foreign policy? What are even our ethics? We are lost in the woods and wandering in circles. We have boomers in their 80s playing out their Russia WW3 fantasies instead of actually securing and improving our country.
What if our foreign policy was based not in imposing our will but was focused on some other values. Human betterment, reaching for the stars, etc? instead we are focused on undermining governments with our secret alphabet soup groups and fighting proxy wars.
I don't have all the answers but what we are doing now is just going to open millions of people to a very bright light followed by a boom and radioactive fallout.
Anybody testing these 'hyper' missiles against moving targets, that have jamming capabilities, including radar? Or just targets on the ground that don't move.
