For those not paying attention to the build up of fire-power by both Russia and China consider what we know. If we take a look at some of the technological advances these countries have made it is no wonder Dr. Roberts explained how Russia dominated the U.S. in Pentagon performed war games. Russia didn’t just beat the U.S., they did it sixteen times out of sixteen scenarios! You read that right, sixteen times the U.S. lost in Pentagon performed war games.
First up from Sputnik, China is constructing their first overseas naval base:
China’s first overseas naval logistics support outpost is estimated to be built in Djibouti and it is reported that it would be used to take care of problems faced by China’s peacekeeping fleet, the Foreign Ministry told China Daily on Thursday.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei had said that the new facility will give logistical support to China’s fleet that performs escort duties in the Gulf of Aden and off the Somali coast.
China will soon have a portion of their naval fleet located in Africa. Might be something to them placing a naval base in Africa – Somalia specifically. This could make situations in the Middle East a little more trying if the U.S. continues pushing China’s buttons in the South China Sea.
Not only is Russia dominating the air with the SU-35 fighter jet – technical info below – but it is battle proven in Syria.
The Sukhoi Su-35 is a designation for two separate, heavily upgraded derivatives of the Su-27 ‘Flanker’ jet plane. Wikipedia
Top speed: 1,553 mph
Range: 2,237 mi
Cruise speed: 870 mph
Weight: 40,570 lbs
Unit cost: 40,000,000–65,000,000 USD (2013)
Engine type: Saturn AL-31
First flight: May 1988
The U.S.’s new F-35 is suffering from a series of problems, not the least of which is massive cost overruns – technical info below
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters undergoing final development and testing by the United States. Wikipedia
Top speed: 1,199 mph
Range: 1,379 mi
Wingspan: 35′ 0″
Engine type: Pratt & Whitney F135
Designer: Lockheed Martin
Manufacturer: Lockheed Martin Aeronautics
Not only is the Russian fighter significantly faster (over 20% faster) it has close to double the flight range. So, if I can fly faster and longer what chance does the enemy really have? This comes on top of the flight helmet for the U.S. F-35 costing $400,000 EACH!
The technological breakthroughs continue with Russia producing a tank with a 3-D printer. 3-D printers in the U.S. are seen as an enemy of the state because someone may use one to make a weapon. Meanwhile, someone in Russia has produced a TANK with the same technology!!
The development of solid objects made of polymer materials at the company ‘Electromashina’, which is a part of ‘Uralvagonzavod’ corporation, has been underway for some time now. In the summer of 2015, the industrial 3D-printer was introduced, which was designed to create prototypes and low-volume parts.
“The 3D-printer helps to speed up the trial production. When the designer develops some new product he designs and primarily works with the 3D-computer model first.
“There is no need to sharpen an item in order to obtain a sample, just to realize that it does not fit and requires a re-run in the production. There is no need to waste metal. One can produce not just a detail, but the complete assembly and check the assembly of all of the mechanical characteristics,” Anton Ulrich said.
How could we forget the micro satellites created with 3-D printers:
Foreign experts have used 3D-technology to create a drone Polecat 3D, much of the detail of which was made by high-speed three-dimensional printing.
However, Russian experts at the RSC Energy went a step further by developing a microsatellite. Its external brackets, housing and a number of components will be printed using a 3D-printer. It can be launched during one of the future spacewalks.
So, no wasted effort, no wasted materials and once the item goes into production you already know it works. All of this is on the back of new technology allowing the use of titanium that can produce several meters of material during one printing session.
And the Grand-Daddy of them all, that we are aware, is the Russian energy directed weapon that makes a mess of all things digital.
The Russian defense industry reportedly has developed a directed-energy weaponthat can destroy or disable sophisticated electronic guidance and navigation systems in manned and unmanned aircraft and precision-guided missiles.
This electronic warfare (EW) weapon, which is yet unnamed, also reportedly can take out GPS navigation signals, radio communications equipment, and even orbiting satellites.
“The system will target the enemy’s deck-based, tactical, long-range, and strategic aircraft, electronic means, and suppress foreign military satellites’ radio-electronic equipment,” says Yuri Mayevsky, CEO of the weapon’s developer, Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET) in Moscow.
This weapon was deployed recently just after Turkey shot down two of Russia’s SU-35 jets.
Is it no wonder the U.S. lost in sixteen Pentagon performed war games? Why is the U.S. continuing to agitate Russia? Why are these maniacs, including the new crop of “Presidential” want-to-be’s, continuing to poke a bear in the eye? The fact of the matter is this: the energy directed weapon that Russia has now deployed is a game changer. The U.S. and all it’s allies, currently, have no answer for this weapon. This weapon will make planes fall from the sky, radio communications impossible and satellites to either fly off course or stop working in place. It is a lose-lose for the Western “coalition”.
Some of you probably think I am all about Russia and hate the U.S.. Nothing could be further from the truth. Was it Russia that called the current sitting President a pariah?
Was it Russia that ordered one of it’s allies to shot down American planes flying in friendly airspace? Was it Russia that supported oil smuggling operations of the same ally that downed two military jets?
It seems the U.S. is just being a “play-ground bully” and doing everything it can to provoke a war with Russia. Why? Are the warmongers, Pentagon contractors and blood thirsty neocons the only voice in this country? Can someone please get every Senator and so-called “representative”, that wants to continue these ongoing wars of aggression, a rifle, a one-way ticket to Syria, Libya, Yemen, Ukraine, Iran or Afghanistan and enough ammo to protect themselves until they can be refueled? And once they become the next “hero” or wounded warrior, send their children with the same equipment. Maybe then this senseless, ongoing killings would stop.
