Obiecana pierwsza nitka dotycząca kosztów politycznych, finansowych i organizacyjnych związanych z pozyskaniem suwerennej, polskiej broni jądrowej wraz ze środkami przenoszenia. Wielu marzycieli upatruje w posiadaniu przez PL suwerennej 1/X
broni jądrowej panaceum na wszelkie kwestie związane z zagrożeniem naszego kraju przez RUS. Pojawiają się nawet twierdzenia, że już kilkanaście ładunków jądrowych pozwoli PL odstraszyć RUS od jakiejkolwiek agresji na nas, być może nawet zredukować siły konwencjonalne. 2/X
Sprawdźmy zatem jak to wygląda w rzeczywistości. Własny arsenał jądrowy musi posiadać zdolność do wykonania uderzenia na strategiczne cele przeciwnika- bazy ICBM, SSBN, centra łączności, stanowiska dowodzenia i kierowania najwyższych władz, zakłady produkujące broń jądrową 3/X

Approximate trajectory flown by the #ICBM that #NorthKorea tested today. A highly lofted trajectory.
(reconstruction based on Japanese DoD info).

When launched on a 'normal', non-lofted trajectory, the range would be 18000+ km, i.e. capable of reaching any place on Earth
Trajectory is based on rough information on apogee, range, and map with approximate impact point provided by Japanese DoD here:…
It will be interesting to see what missile it concerns when Northg Korea publishes their propaganda photo's. Hwasong-17? Something new?

Anyone can see the world has gone mad.
Our matrix is insane. Why?
Since antiquity, the ruling families have practiced strategic inbreeding programs to sustain their wealth and power, from Pharaoh to King Charles III and everyone in between.

Its no secret the ancient Egyptians used this practice during many of their dynastic periods. The most famous being King Tut, the offspring of the famous androgynously portrayed monotheist, #Akhenaten and his sister. Tut also married his sister.…

Die #Ostsee (#balticsea) und die Auswirkung des #Nato #Beitritt von #Schweden und #Finnland.
Um die Bedeutung, vor allem der Marine zu verstehen geht es im 2.Teil der Serie um die Grundlagen der Aufgaben der #Marine.
Die Marine ist wesentlich mehr als ein paar graue Schiffe, 1/x
sondern ein Wirkverbund aus Land-, See- und Lufteinheiten!

Neben Sensoren und Effektoren ist Führung elementar.
Sensoren dienen der Aufklärung und Zielerfassung/-zuweisung.
Effektoren sind die Waffen (Geschütze, Raketen etc)
Führung ist das, 2/x Bild von Image
Was alles verbindet und koordiniert. Es gibt sogar Schiffe die nur zur Führung von großen Verbänden da sind. Diese werden teilweise sogar noch von weiteren Schiffen unterstützt welche eine Warfare Area (Kampfbereich) wie z.B. Flugabwehr leiten.3/x…

Was hat #Russland überhaupt an einsetzbaren Nuklearwaffen? Es ist deutlich weniger als ihr denkt.
#SLBM an U-Booten haben wir bis zu 5 der neuen #Borei mit je 16 R30 (SS-N-32 #Bulawa, RSM-56 Alternative Bezeichnungen) mit je bis zu 6 Sprengköpfen.
Dazu kommen 7 #DeltaIV mit 1/x
Je 16x R-29RM (SS-N-23 #Skiff) mit je bis zu 6 Sprengköpfen.
Dazu soll noch ein #DeltaIII (Status fraglich) im Dienst sein mit 16xR-29RL (SS-N-18 #Stingray mit je einem Sprengkopf. Das noch existierende #Typhoon (offiziell 20x Beluwa) wird nur als Testplatform genutzt und 2/x
Soll nicht mehr einsatzbereit sein, dazu eh gen Ende des Jahres ausgemustert werden.
Daher sind maximal 228 Raketen mit 1288 Sprengköpfen möglich.

Wenn eine Rakete mehrere Sprengköpfe trägt nennt man das #MIRV. Hier gibt es aufgrund der Verträge Maximalzahlen der MIRVs je 3/x

1. On 24 Mar 2022, the #DPRK conducted an apparently successful test of an international ballistic missile (#ICBM). This was the first such test since Nov 2017 and marked the official end to the DPRK ICBM and nuclear test moratorium.
2. According to 🇺🇸JCS and 🇯🇵MoD, the ICBM was launched at ~2:33 pm local time. It followed a highly lofted trajectory, with an apogee of >6200 km before splashing down ~150 km west of 🇯🇵Toshima Peninsula, 1080 km from its launch site at 🇰🇵Sunan airfield. The flight took ~71 min.
3. Considering that the apogee is significantly higher than previous tests, the 24 Mar test probably involves the new ICBM that made its debut during a military parade on 10 Oct 2020. The name of this new system is possibly Hwasong-17.

Navigational Warnings have appeared that suggest a #test launch of a #Minuteman #ICBM from Vandenberg on March 3 - 4.

(I suspect 1 or 2 more NavWarnings to appear for areas around Kwajalein, based on previous tests)
@nukestrat @mhanham @wslafoy @ArmsControlWonk ImageImage
To be clear (as such suggestions always arrise):
This has *nothing* to do with the Ukraine crisis. Tests like these are scheduled months in advance.
They are regular tests to ascertain the readiness and training of missile crews.
As I expected, another Navigational Warning has appeared, adding an extra hazard area west of Kwajalein.
Updated map for this upcoming #Minuteman III test (probably GT240GM): ImageImage

Looks like there will be another #Minuteman-III #ICBM test from Vandenberg towards Kwajalein in the first week of September, with a ~8100 km range. Navigational Warnings, and a plot of these (with ballistic trajectory)

The trajectory and stage splashdown zones of this upcoming #Minuteman-III ICBM test launch are comparable to that of the recent August 4 test launch, but with the RV('s) targetting an ~800-900 km longer range, it seems: Image

Navigational Warnings issued today, indicate that a #Minuteman III #ICBM will be test-fired from Vandenberg AFB between August 4 and 6.
Test range indicated by Area Warnings is ~7200 km.
Plotted trajectory is simple ballistic

HOLD ON! There is yet another area, that I overlooked as it was not in the same Area Warning set!

Will update the map...give me some time.
Hmmm, on second look, not sure it is related. Times of the window do not match.....opens about an hour after the other time windows.... Image

#Despotess #KimYoJong (7/10): #DPRK must not agree to another KJU-Trump summit this year bc:

1. Useful to US, useless "to us"
2. Sitting w Americans a waste of time & risks damaging the special rels b/t KJU & Trump
3. No need to grant a summit predicted by "Trash-like Bolton" 1/
"The US must be afraid it may receive the hitherto undelivered Christmas gift before the election."

Says KJU made it clear to #Trump at 6/30/19 meeting he'll never swap additional denuclearization measures Trump wants with petty sanctions relief just for rapid econ dev't
Since, NK has "totally trashed the issue of sanctions relief in talks agenda with the US." She believes basic theme of NK-US negotiations, "denuclearization measures vs sanctions relief," now must be rectified by frame of "hostile policy withdrawal vs NK-US talks resumption" 3/

Some ideas by me on the latest comments coming out of #NorthKorea tonight: "“North Korea has, in effect, put an #ICBM to Donald Trump’s head in order to gain the two concessions it wants most: sanctions relief and some sort of security guarantee.
Kim Jong-un is playing a dangerous game of geopolitical chicken. He is gambling that threatening another demonstration of his ability to hit the U.S. homeland with a nuclear weapon will somehow push America into granting more concessions. #NorthKorea
I would argue Kim’s potential ICBM test will backfire, as Washington will be forced to respond—most likely with more sanctions, an increased military presence in East Asia and more fire and fury style threats coming from Donald Trump’s Twitter account. #NorthKorea
