The United States suspected Nudol could destroy military satellites

Although Russia promotes that Nudol can destroy US military satellites and paralyze the country, the actual capacity of this system is very unpredictable. Skepticism about the capability of the Nudol system is covered by topwar in an article published on September 10.

‘Russia has declared a number of successful tests of the Nudol system several times. The US military has shown its panic at the Russian declaration that the weapon can intercept any opponent’s satellite in Earth’s orbit.

The revealed information shows that Nudol flew 2000 km in just 15 minutes and hit the target. The Pentagon will suffer a great loss if these missiles officially enter the Russian army because only a few of these missiles are enough to completely disarm the NATO army.

With this weapon, Russia does not need to spend a lot of money and weapons, just shoot down some US and NATO military satellites in Earth’s orbit. After that, the US military will be paralyzed without any connection. The Russian Defense Ministry said that in the near future, Nudol will be put into service in the Russian army and that they will be designed only to shoot down satellites that endanger the country.

Nudol’s rocket shells can hit targets in space within a radius of about 1,500 km and at altitudes up to 800 km. With this system, once again, the Russian Federation proved in fact that it was Moscow who won the arms race between the United States and the Russian Federation, ‘the topwar expert said.

The article further analyzes that, although the Nudol danger to US military satellites is valid, Russia cannot use Nudol to cripple the US military.

In the case of USA-243, the military communication satellite of the WGS (Wireband Global SATCOM) series, launched in orbit in May 2013, is operating at an altitude of 35,786 km. NAVSTAR’s satellite, which supports GPS, rotates in a circular orbit at an altitude of 20,180 km.

At this height, the A-235 Nudol system could not launch the interceptor warhead at such a high altitude. For example, to launch 730 kilograms of payload to such an altitude, a rocket equivalent to Japan’s H-II is needed, with a launch weight of 288 tons.

Meanwhile, Nudol’s parameters are much more modest: according to published data, its initial weight is 9.6 tons and it can only reach an altitude of 800km. So simply, Nudol will not have access to the operational and navigating satellites in the United States.

The US military wants the Kurds to keep their weapons

US military commanders plan to withdraw troops from Syria. They are proposing to fight Kurdish militants to fight against the self-proclaimed Islamic State terrorist organization (IS) to hold weapons supplied by the US. This is a move that may be offensive to Turkey.

This above information is provided by four unnamed US military officials. They said the recommendations above were part of a discussion about the draft plan of the US military. It is unclear what the Pentagon will propose to the White House at the last minute.

Discussions are still in the early stages of the Pentagon and no decisions have been made yet. This plan will be presented to the White House in the coming days and President Donald Trump will be the one to make the final decision on whether to let Kurds keep weapons in Syria.

The Pentagon declined to comment on the future of US weapons, saying the current time is “not appropriate” to talk about it. The White House also declined to comment.

“The planning process is still ongoing, focusing on implementing a process of controlled withdrawal and securing our military forces,” Sean Robertson said, Pentagon spokesman. .

The US officials said Mr. Trump’s announcement and the withdrawal of US troops from Syria had angered many military commanders. Because they thought it was a betrayal of Kurdish YPG forces and militants. Sio that helps Washington in the fight against self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) in Northeast Syria.

According to him, weapons could include anti-tank missiles, armored vehicles and mortars. The Pentagon kept a record of the weapons it supplied to YPG, but US officials said it was almost impossible to determine the location of all the equipment. One of the US officials told Reuters that YPG would be armed until the fight against IS was completed
