Russia possesses modern types of weapons, has a last-line aerospace defense system - this is the best response to the aggressive designs of the United States and NATO. This opinion was expressed to NewInform by military expert Igor Korotchenko.
The German Air Force, together with NATO partners, are participating in secret maneuvers according to the scenario of the alleged start of an atomic war. Exercise Steadfast Noon kicked off this week, according to Western media reports. During the maneuvers, the use of aircraft with nuclear weapons on board is practiced.
The exercises are taking place at the air base in the village of Nerfenich (North Rhine-Westphalia) in western Germany. Traditionally, NATO conducts these exercises in the fall.
At the same time, the Resilient Guard exercise is taking place in Büchel (Rhineland-Palatinate). In them, the FRG Air Force is practicing scenarios of defensive actions when attacking a potential enemy.
According to unofficial information, about 20 American nuclear warheads of the B61 type are still stored at the Büchel base as part of NATO's strategic concept to eliminate potential adversaries.
Director of the Center for Analysis of World Arms Trade (CAMTO), military expert Igor Korotchenko said that the United States and its NATO partners have been conducting such exercises for the last 30-40 years.
“There is no sensation here, which is why there are American tactical weapons in Europe, which are intended for use in a war against Russia, including the transfer of part of this nuclear arsenal to NATO countries in the event of a real war. Such exercises have been practiced before and are still being carried out, ”the source said.
Answering a journalist's question - how should Russia react to such activities on the part of the NATO military, Korotchenko said that our country possesses all types of modern weapons capable of resisting any threats.
“We are creating an aerospace defense system, in particular, the latest S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems are being delivered to the North-West of Russia and the Kaliningrad region. An airspace control network is also being created through new radar stations - they are able to detect a target at all altitudes. They are called upon to cover the most important administrative, industrial and military facilities and groups of troops, "the military expert noted.
In addition, supplies of the TOR-M2 anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) are underway, Korotchenko said.
“This is a means of air defense (air defense) of the last line, they are guaranteed to hit all enemy targets with 100% probability. The TOP-M2 complexes have proved to be excellent in the defense of the Khmeimim airbase; they provided the main task of destroying terrorist drones. The capabilities of the TOP-M2 complex are very effective, in their area of responsibility they can destroy absolutely any target, ”summed up the director of TSAMTO.
According to Korotchenko, the creation of a Russian aerospace defense system is the best response to the aggressive designs of the United States and NATO.
