    Russia's nasty missile

    They are claiming that this weapon makes all anti-missile defense weapons against it useless apparently according to what our CH-7 news just stated it can carry a 2Mt warhead flies at Mach 27 and can withstand 2000 degrees F.

    Look on the bright side, if you are on the receiving end of it you probably won't know much about it.

    Its debatable if it can actually do what they say it can do. Russiaicon has a history of telling tall tales...

    Frankly, I don't believe any of it. How would a nearly bankrupt, cash starved Russiaicon manage to do any of this? Putin is all about saving face, making Russia into its former glory of the Soviet Union. Doesn't take a lot of money to create a story and build mock ups.

    Aside from the usual internal corruption, military programs are the reason Russia is cash-starved and nearly bankrupt...

    You don't hear the US president or the UKicon prime minister talking about the technical specifications of their latest or current nuclear missiles; it is just something that is not discussed in public. It could be that a great wave of honesty and openness has suddenly swept through the Kremlin or it could be that they are talking B.S. like they normally do.

    I don't know USAicon is always showing how well they are doing with the Rail Guns they are probably 10 years further along than what they are portraying along with the new invisible cloaking sheet they have developed.
    You really do not know what any super power has in their weapons development because as soon as they squawk about it counter measures will probably start being developed for all we know the USA may have the "Rods From God" operational plenty of classified shuttle missions they probably only said it was too expensive to throw people off the scent.

    And if Russiaicon is cash strapped then no offence to our USA brethren the US is not rolling in the green backs either, but they all find the monies from somewhere to continue weapons development.


    You know years ago every body laughed at the technology in the Russian Mig fighters "Oh goodness look here they are still using valves?" well the first thing that was purported to do if you want to ground things is put an EMP to work sadly valves are a whole lot stronger than capacitors and resistors so suddenly your microchipped fighters/bombers are grounded due to burned out circuit boards who is the chipmunk now.
    Maybe they have it maybe they don't who can tell allot of people have poked the Russian bear and to their folly gone down someone should have told Hitler that, as for WWII stats on Russia's losses its in excess of 20 million dead souls but it could be more I dare say the USA suffered no where near that number, Russia don't care about souls only to defeat the aggressor, having the edge is in that mix.

    My understanding is that the reason Russiaicon still uses valves in some of it's military equipment is because valves will still work in high levels of radiation where semiconductors may not.

    The Russians use what they use because it's what they have and what they can afford. If they had better, they would use it. As for this new missile, from what I understand it gets its speed from the re-entry into the atmosphere which every nuclear warhead has, it has no internal engine to increase speed. What makes it different, if real, is that it can maneuver once deployed. In other words, it is gliding to the earth at hypersonic speeds and it can alter it's course to avoid missile defense systems and then re-acquire it's target. Sound like something the Russians would be able to develop before the US? While possible, I doubt it. Solution if real is to destroy the missiles before they deploy in the first place. Star Wars which the ridiculously named Space Force will take care of. I can't help but visualize Space Balls every time I hear that name mentioned for some reason or another. Thought it was a joke but apparently not.

    A good example of this development is the US spent tons of money developing a pen that would work in zero G. They did it. One American astronaut supposedly asked one of his Sovieticon counterparts how they solved this problem and the answer was "we use pencils" Sometimes more advanced isn't needed when you get right down to it but sometimes it is.
