If INF Cancelled Russia's Responsive Steps to Target States Housing US Missiles

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The activities of the United States, aimed at preserving the predominant role of Washington in the world is one of the main factors deteriorating the international situation, the Chief of the Russian General Staff, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, noted.

If the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty is cancelled, then Russian responsive measures will target the countries that accommodate US intermediate-range and short-range missiles, the Chief of the Russian General Staff, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, has stated.

The creation of a solid radar field near Russia's borders has been completed, this guarantees the detection of ballistic missiles from all directions, Gerasimov said.

"As military professionals, you should understand that not US territory, but the countries that accommodate US systems of intermediate-range and short-range missiles will become the targets of Russian responsive measures", Gerasimov told foreign military attaches.


US Deteriorating Int'l Situation

"One of the main destructive factors deteriorating the international situation is the activities of the United States aimed at retaining the predominant role of the US in the world and excluding other countries from competition”, Gerasimov said.

The chief of the Russian General Staff stressed that for these purposes Washington and its allies are taking measures to contain Russia and discredit its role in international affairs.

The statements come after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a press conference in Brussels that the United States would suspend its adherence to the INF Treaty in 60 days unless Russia returns to full compliance with the agreement.

What Is the Mysterious 9М729 Missile the US Wants Russia To Ban

15:46 07.12.2018

Little is known about the 9М729 (NATO reporting name SSC-8) missile, which, as the US claims, violates the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. Its characteristics are also a mystery, with military experts having multiple theories on the missile's origins.

Kalibr Missile

Many Western military media outlets find similarities between the alleged photos of 9М729 missiles and Kalibr series sea-launched missiles (NATO reporting name SS-N-27 Sizzler), developed by Russian NPO Novator. Its export versions have an operational range between 50 and 300 kilometres, while the latest 3M-14/3M-14T has a range of between 1,500 and 2,500 kilometres.

Since the 3M-14 is a sea-launched missile, it doesn't violate the INF Treaty, but the media claims that Russia modified it and adapted it to be launched from Iskander (NATO reporting name SS-26 Stone) mobile missile launchers.

Kalibr missiles can be launched in any weather, alone or as part of a missile salvo. It's capable of carrying nuclear warheads, as well as ordinary ones weighing up to 500 kilogrammes. These missiles can reach a 1-kilometre altitude, but can also fly as low as 20 metres above the water's surface, making it hard to be spotted by radar.

Kalibr is also known for its capabilities to penetrate anti-missile defences — while it travels most of the way at subsonic speeds, the missile accelerates to supersonic speed during the terminal stage of its flight to make interception much harder.

Stealth Kh-101 Missile

According to another theory, 9М729 stems from an air-to-ground Kh-101 missile, developed by the NPO "Raduga" (Russian for rainbow), and widely used by the Russian Air Force in Syria. Its maximum range reaches some 5,500 kilometres, but according some estimates it can travel as far as 10,000 kilometres, although this data has never been confirmed. It can carry up to a 450-kilogramme warhead or a nuclear one (in Kh-102 modification). Kh-101's speed varies from 190 to 270 metres per second.

The missile can guide and strike even moving targets with precision. One of its key features is to switch targets mid-flight, making it highly flexible. Another notable feature of this missile is its low radar visibility, making it barely detectable.




in other words angmoh got no idea what that is and so have to cancel the INF, why not just ask Russia for a sample of the missile? .... Rolling on the flor laughing Rolling on the flor laughing Rolling on the flor laughing Rolling on the flor laughing
