Burgers Adopt Precision-Guided Nuclear Bomb

The B61-12 gravity nuclear bomb

The airplane-dropped nuke from the sixties got a service life extension, and a laser guidance system, for thermonuclear strikes with SURGICAL PRECISION.
Presumably on countries with no anti-aircraft capabilities.

The bomb tests are a part of the Pentagon's $7.6 billion 'B61-12 Life Extension Program', which aims to “refurbish, reuse, or replace all of the bomb’s nuclear and non‐nuclear components” and extend the service life of the B61 by at least 20 years.
Besides deploying B61-12 on modern and future long range bombers, the Pentagon is making sure the bomb can be easily used by F-15E fighter jets, and wants to integrate it with the F-35 Lightning II fifth generation combat jets, raising concerns it is creeping towards lowering the threshold for tactical use of nuclear weapons.

Do burgers even have actual nuclear delivery systems? The Minuteman arsenal isn't much younger than this, and the Tridents don't even work.

The Sunday Times says the test fire was launched from HMS Vengeance.
It says the Trident II D5 missile was intended to be fired 5,600 miles (9,012 km) to a sea target off the west coast of Africa but veered towards the US.
The cause remains top secret, the paper says, but it quotes a senior naval source as saying the missile suffered an in-flight malfunction after launching out of the water.
HMS Vengeance, one of the UK's four Vanguard-class submarines, returned to sea for trials in December 2015 after a £350m refit, which included the installation of new missile launch equipment and upgraded computer systems.

Taking out extremely hardened targets. Nuclear weapons are not magical "erase everything" devices; they're completely normal explosives (that also produce radiation) in the sense that they obey the laws of physics. It's just that the power of the explosion is so much greater than normal explosives that we tend to categorize them differently mentally. While a soft target like a city may not require pinpoint precision, something like a command and control bunker buried in the side of a mountain could.

This deficiency is a perfect example of why planet busters are necessary. Nothing says "fuck you" like sucking a major portion of the enemy's home continent into a singularity.

That's Alpha Centauri. One of the late game units you can research is the 'Planet Buster' missile that wipes out whatever the fuck it hits (including cities) and digs a huge, Vredefort tier, crater into the map. They're really quite fun, but if you use them every AI nation in the game declares war on you no matter what. So you only end up using them if they're your last chance, or if you can take on the rest of the planet and are just using the PB for shits and giggles. Most of LAN games I've played of AC end up with 2-3 of the more successful players stockpiling them in an arms race, completely ending any hope of a military victory - which provides a very fun example of why Mutually Assured Destruction works.

Hadn't considered using them for hard targets, I thought you guys were still keeping the B53 for those.

Yeah but B-61 are thinner (diameter) than mk-84 but I think they're longer (all measurement on the interweb are useless, they're way too short so it's probably the bomb itself, mk-61 in fact, without it's tail assembly), maybe not by much but Murphy's law dictate it will be enough.

I saw the documents and I'm going to reveal the reason for this. Don't worry, the government can't get me because I'm behind seven proxies.
The missile didn't knoww where it was at the time. It didn't know this because it didn't know where it wasn't. By subtracting where it thought it was from where it wasn't, or where it wasn't, from where it was, whichever is greater, it obtained an incorrect difference, or deviation. The guidance sub-system used deviations to generate corrective commands to drive the missile from a position where it thought it was, to a position where it thought it wasn't, and arriving at a position where it thought it wasn't, it headed toward the US.

For what purpose?
Aircraft safety from the air defense. Loft bombing can provide serious range for a bomb. Also overall JDAM bomb delivery against pre-planed target is much much simpler than unguided bomb that contributes to the aircraf's freedom of maneuver and therefore survivability.

Can the burgers not get bombs within half a mile of the target?
With long range loft or/and high altitude high speed bombing it is possible to have such misses.

IIRC the first US attempt at a radar guided SPAAG ended when it was demonstrated infront of a crowd and almost ED-209'd them.
Here we go:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M247_Sergeant_York

In February 1982 the prototype was demonstrated for a group of US and British officers at Fort Bliss, along with members of Congress and other VIPs. When the computer was activated, it immediately started aiming the guns at the review stands, causing several minor injuries as members of the group jumped for cover. Technicians worked on the problem, and the system was restarted. This time it started shooting towards the target, but fired into the ground 300 m in front of the tank. In spite of several attempts to get it working properly, the vehicle never successfully engaged the sample targets. A Ford manager claimed that the problems were due to the vehicle being washed for the demonstration and fouling the electronics.[18] In a report on the test, Easterbrook jokingly wondered if it ever rained in central Europe.

As early production examples started rolling off the production line, the problems proved to be just as serious. One of the early models is reported to have locked onto a latrine fan, mistaking its return for a moving target of low-priority. Reporting on the incident in another article on the vehicle's woes, Easterbrook reported that "During a test one DIVAD locked on to a latrine fan. Michael Duffy, a reporter for the industry publication Defense Week, who broke this aspect of the story, received a conference call in which Ford officials asked him to describe the target as a 'building fan' or 'exhaust fan' instead."

The results were abysmal. Unable to hit drones moving even in a straight line, the tests were later relaxed to hovering ones. The radar proved unable to lock even to this target, as the return was too small. The testers then started adding radar reflectors to the drone to address this "problem", eventually having to add four. Easterbrook, still covering the ongoing debacle, described this as being similar to demonstrating the abilities of a bloodhound by having it find a man standing alone in the middle of an empty parking lot, covered with steaks.[22] The system now tracked the drone, and after firing a lengthy burst of shells the drone was knocked off target. As it flew out of control, the range safety officer had it destroyed by remote control. This was interpreted by the press as an attempt to "fake" the results, describing it as "sophomoric deceits".[23] From that point on, every test success was written off as faked.

You can't use your nukes because other countries will think you're a big ol' meanie if you do use them. The thing is, though, that everyone knows there's not much point in caring what a country thinks unless that country also has nukes.

Ok it's not from the 70's it's part of the last big upgrade package they got in the early 80's and the reason why they added contact fuze to the warheads.
The design is meant to keep the missiles being the least expensive component (like on it's successor SA-15) because it's supposed to shoot a lot of them (mainly because you need at least two shots to have a decent kill probability but it can do it, SA-15 is of course much better at it).
Implying mudslimes are competent.
Especially in ADA.
Did you know that NATO fired 3 times more HARMs against Serbia during the kosovo war than during the entirety of Desert Storm?
And that it did pretty much squat, when 1/3 was enough to completely neutralize Iraq much bigger ADA net, despite the ADA systems fielded being exactly the same (Iraq might have had better version even)?
You could give a laser, railgun and high intensity energy shield to arabs as an ADA weapon and they would still manage to get themselves bomb.

Did you know that NATO fired 3 times more HARMs against Serbia during the kosovo war than during the entirety of Desert Storm?

Getting almost three times more HARMs fired at them is interesting for two reasons:
1. Serbs had 1/10th the air defenses of Iraq
2. After the SEAD campaign was complete, DTIC assesed their air defenses as functional

By the way it wasn't just HARM, it was other ordinance as well.

Easton Campbell

…apart from keeping their air defenses down
Didn't read this, sorry. The entire point of the SEAD campaign on Yugoslavia was as preparation for an invasion and occupation by NATO troops. The fact that the airspace was judged too dangerous for an invasion suggests the statement that it "kept their air defenses down" is actually wrong. They just didn't waste the twenty or so good rockets they had on fighter jets or bombers, Serbs were waiting for those big juicy troop transports.

Demonstrably false, they did down dozens of drones and quite a few jets too. Whenever we got ready to invade, with troops boarding ships in Italy, they'd shoot down something else important and the soldiers would go back to barracks.

Which meant that NATO never managed to gain full air superiority and had to conduct large penetration raids instead of opportunity attacks and large penetration raids doesn't do shit to a competent army.
Which meant NATO couldn't send ground troops without full air support since it's something NATO doesn't even know how to do anymore.
Which is why NATO after nearly two month of bombing the serbian army (and missing the serbian army) decided to return to it's favorite tactic, strategic bombing and EXCLUSIVELY TARGET CIVILIANS, until the Serbs had enough and asked for a ceasefire or be exterminated.

My point was efficiency of air defense system rise drastically depending who crew them, europeans graduates that trains regularly > goatfuckers that can't do calculus.

Jesus Christ man they also got pic related. NATO's final assessment of its aircraft losses during the operation "Allied Force" indicates that some 61 aircraft have been destroyed, 53 aircraft were damaged beyond repair or it is not cost-effective to repair them, 57 aircraft have sustained repairable combat damage. A total of 171 NATO aircraft were hit by Yugoslav defenses during the war. Not counting about a dozen helicopters, 30+ drones, and hundreds of cruise missiles.

181 strikes on tanks
317 strikes on APC

94% of weapons were dropped on civilians
84% of guided weapons were specifically targeted to hit civilians

Also, your recounting is complete bullshit.

NATO never planned a ground invasion, because they would have gotten their asses raped by a highly experienced white army in that sort of terrain and on its own turf. The plan was to instead terrorize Serbia from the air to get them to the negotiation table, which in the end worked because Serbia didn't want to lose all their infrastructure and be bombed back into a third world state, so they rather gave up Kosovo than all of Serbia.

The Serbian AD network worked fine especially because they knew when to emit signals and when not, which made it impossible for NATO to ever fully destroy it and prevented the air forces from effectively engaging the Serbian army forces dispersed and camouflaged in the terrain. Also, if you believe that all the Apache losses "before" and during the outbreak of hostilities were all the "training accidents", as was claimed, you are very very gullible. These choppers flew recon missions and got owned by SHORAD, mostly IR manpads, because unlike Iraq, Serbia / Kosovo is not flat desert terrain where you have a clear view on targets from 10 miles away. Instead, Serbian Chad will wait for you with an SA-18 at the next clearing behind the hill you just passed.

Kosovo War

Or, 2)

Sucks, but that's sort of how war works. There will never be a bloodless war, nor will there be a war without civilian casualties. Faggots like you create Vietnams because you're too pansy-assed to actually go all out, instead opting to fight a half-assed "semi war" because you're worried that if you fight a bit too hard you'll accidentally kill a few kids here and there.

To be fair the Siege of Sarajevo was muslim fault, they started the war in Sarajevo by killing Serbs and just provoking for violent reaction from the Serbian side, when that failed they outright started killing people and then started sieging the military barracks that had Serbian soldiers inside.

Muslims stop civilian traffic (cars,buses etc) in a street

move in the artillery in that street

fire 8-10 shells into Serbian barracks

move the artillery back

continue with the civilian traffic

Serbs normally respond and shell the place where the attack came from

civilians die and muslims cry to western MSM that Serbs are just randomly killing civilians for no reason

After Serbs figured this out they shelled the storehouses where the muslims hid the artillery and other shit, after that muslims started full-scale urban warfare where they hid in civilian apartments and were shooting on civilians ISIS style.

Also to point out that the muslim plan of doing the stop traffic > pull artillery > move artillery back came from British MI6 because they tricked them into doing it so they could justify the military action into the region to end the war. (War ended 3 years later and thats because USA did it not Brits, Brits were enjoying selling weapons to both sides)

Nuclear weapons are not magical "erase everything" devices
This is target and yeild dependent

they're completely normal explosives (that also produce radiation) in the sense that they obey the laws of physics.
This kind of logic is extremely stupid, it's on the level of comparing jarts to a Mk.82 because both utilized gravity as a function. We categorized them differently than "normal" explosives because they use matter itself in a physical reaction and they do not strictly adhere to the laws of physics.

While a soft target like a city may not require pinpoint precision, something like a command and control bunker buried in the side of a mountain could.
Which doesn't require the use of a nuke, a GBU-57 would provide a greater level of destruction. What the Mk.12 upgrade provides is a steerable, air-dropped nuclear device for employment as a more precise dual-use weapon for counter-force and counter-value attack options.

He was a Romanian-Hungarian from Serbia, who clearly preferred Serbia to homogays a few miles to the north. If he even remotely liked Hungary he could have easily WALKED there. Since he liked Serbia enough to stay there, get trained in Serbian military schools, and PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE FOR SERBIA, I would say the F-117 shootdown is 100% a Serbian national victory.

whose grandparents were ethnically cleansed by Tito
The fuck does his grandparents being killed by a Slovenian-Croatian communist have to do with it? Tito also destroyed the Serbian people, created the Bosnian, Montenegrin and Macedonian state from fucking nothing just to split up Serbs. He even strengthened muslims in bosnia and kosovo because "great-Serb capitalist clique" was too strong compared to muh "oppressed people".

So then we need to destroy airfields, blow bridges, hit command and control bunkers, take out communications networks, hit civilian radar sets, etc. And those are just the strategic targets I can think of off the top of my head.

the civilian power grid is not a strategic target
It's being used to provide energy for military uses. It could be being used to power radio transmitters or radar sets. So yes, it is a strategic target.

a civilian passenger train full of refugees
collateral damage

foreign embassy
It's run by the Chinese. The Chinese were spying on military activities in the region. So we had a little "accident" to hinder their spying.

elementary schools are also not a strategic target

Once again, faggots like you cause Vietnam. Because you are too chickenshit to actually fight a real war, so you decide to artificially restrict your targets and not attack valid targets that the enemy is using to organize his activities.

Not to mention that Vietnam was a completely different war where we had troops and friendlies on the ground we had to protect, and global power hinged on that conflict. Retards like you managed to drop bombs on friendly civvies in three other countries (Thailand, Cambodia and Laos) without having any effect on Vietnam.

Nothing fucking hinged in balkans, we had no troops there, the entire genocide bullshit is a lie, we had no reason to drop a single fucking bomb let alone bomb a bunch of civilian targets. If anything we actually helped the ethnic cleansing of a 1/4 million serbs. But even so, men like you had free reign in Yugoslavia too, didn't you? Bombed a bunch of prisons full of civilian friendlies, managed to kill more Albanian civilians than the serbs did, and "reached your objective" when povertypotato russia stepped in to mediate and do the heavy lifting for you.

Instead of trying to do a half-assed "police action" that turns into a never-ending occupation a la Vietnam and Iraq, either do a total war and accept civilian losses, or just don't go to war at all.

We got what we came for in Korea; we kept the South independent. In fact, South Korea gained territory. It's just that MacArthur ran his mouth about it being his goal to reunify the peninsula and the media repeated that ad nauseum so that the general public got the idea that that's why we were there. By the end of the war the North Korean military was nonexistent and the Chinese had been held off. We were even slowly gaining ground. But actually pushing the Chinese out of Korea would have probably taken years; maybe even a decade, and would have involved hundreds of thousands more American casualties at least, and there was no public support for that less than a decade after WW2 ended.

Jordan Young

Certainly a lot of neocohens ITT.

And subscribing to the wanna-be-tough-guy "We only lost the Vietnam War because we didn't firebomb enough civies, muh total war". The reason Vietnam was a waste and nothing along the lines of victory happened was because there wasn't a clear objective, there wasn't a goal. War is the continuation of politics by other means. It is always an outflow of politics. So, what was the politics at play there, at least ostensibly? For the US, it was curtailing further propagation of communism. How to achieve that goal? Actually, best shot would have been just through propaganda, infiltration and possibly clandestine direct action. Doing it by dropping bombs when the propagation of communism means that in every other village, every other man's brother, son or father has turned communist isn't a very fucking bright idea.
But OK, you want to drop bombs? Fine. Then drop them on the North, and do it to prepare a ground invasion of the North, because the communism is spreading from there and you'll have to have muh regime change there if you want it to stop. Can't do that because the Soviets will then nuke the US? Well, too fucking bad. So what else then? If you still want to drop bombs, you'll really have to drop them on the already infiltrated villages then, which means you will likewise burn all the other people you originally wanted to save from communism. Damn. Yeah, looks like dropping bombs really wasn't the best course of action there then. And that's why Vietnam was a shitshow: Because it happened at all. Bombs were the wrong tool for the job, because there was no clear military objective to reach the political goal, since the proper military objective for that would have been the occupation of the North by US forces, which would have probably meant WWIII. So they couldn't do that, and it turns out that you can't convert people by just dropping bombs on them, and especially can't save people that way, either.

But then you have idiots ITT that wanted to drop more bombs. Yeah. You dropped plenty bombs, dumbasses, and it achieved exactly zilch.

But btw., why are you running psyops on the commies over there instead of just physically bombing every commie you know in your personal life? I thought killing commies was the best way to fight communism?
Excuses, excuses
Nah, see? Because just killing commies is not neccessarily or automatically the best course of action. If you would go now and kill 2 or 3 commies in your vicinity, you will most probably get caught in the end. Result? 2-3 commies dead, you disabled as an asset for the cause, and, most probably, strengthen resolve in - oh, I don't know - literally a few million commies around the world + providing the commie / kike media with all the propaganda they need, and more ammo for the gun grabbers.

See, that is because reality doesn't function like in your tough guy 14 year old faggot fantasy world. 3 dead commies against all of the negatives cited above. Violence is a tool like any other tool, and it has to be applied in a way that it makes sense, just like any other tool. Randomly killing commies in your neighbourhood, in our current situation, is not going to stop communism, just like randomly dropping napalm on villages in the jungle of SE Asia didn't stop it from spreading there.
War is the continuation of politics by other means. Von Clausewitz didn't say that because he was trying to come across as an edgelord, instead, it was simply an OBSERVATION, an ASSESSMENT, and an accurate one. War is always the result of a political will (in other cases, it is just blind, rampant violence, like niggers do it when they chimp out), so, if it is meant to be successfull, a strategy has to be developed that aims to achieve the political will.
My whole point was that in Vietnam, no such strategy existed, because the only proper one (occupation of at least North Vietnam - better, even, the Soviet Union), was unfeasable because of the nuclear threat / Cold War. So, applying conventional military measures was doomed to fail from the start. What the US, and more specifically, the US Air Force, did, was running operations without an overarching strategy.
There are three layers to warfare: The strategic layer (how do we impress our political aims on the enemy), the operational layer (how do we execute / implement the strategy through actual actions) and tactical (how do we achieve the objective in each operation, on the battlefield, in air combat, in air to surface combat, in electronic warfare etc). If you do not have a sound strategy to implement the political will to begin with, all you are doing is just propping the arms industry in an endless war. See also the "The War on Terror" for that.

Levi Torres
Levi Torres

if Patton didn't die wasn't assassinated?

FTFY.

This conviction, that the politicians had used him and the U.S. Army for a criminal purpose, grew in the following weeks. During a dinner with French General Alphonse Juin in August, Patton was surprised to find the Frenchman in agreement with him. His diary entry for August 18 quotes Gen. Juin: "It is indeed unfortunate, mon General, that the English and the Americans have destroyed in Europe the only sound country – and I do not mean France. Therefore, the road is now open for the advent of Russian communism."

Later diary entries and letters to his wife reiterate this same conclusion. On August 31 he wrote: "Actually, the Germans are the only decent people left in Europe. it's a choice between them and the Russians. I prefer the Germans." And on September 2: "What we are doing is to destroy the only semi-modern state in Europe, so that Russia can swallow the whole."

"There is a very apparent Semitic influence in the press. They are trying to do two things: first, implement communism, and second, see that all businessmen of German ancestry and non-Jewish antecedents are thrown out of their jobs.

"They have utterly lost the Anglo-Saxon conception of justice and feel that a man can be kicked out because somebody else says he is a Nazi. They were evidently quite shocked when I told them I would kick nobody out without the successful proof of guilt before a court of law . . .

On a sidenote:

The United States of North America seems to have lost the ability to build new nuclear weapons to know-how regression:

blog.jim.com/war/technological-decline-3/
media.defense.gov/2018/Feb/02/2001872886/-1/-1/1/2018-NUCLEAR-POSTURE-REVIEW-FINAL-REPORT.PDF

The 2018 Nuclear Posture Review has recently appeared, revealing that we have lost all nuclear military technology:

U.S. production of tritium, a critical strategic material for nuclear weapons, is now insufficient to meet the forthcoming U.S. nuclear force sustainment demands, or to hedge against unforeseen developments. Programs are planned, but not yet fully funded, to ease these critical production shortfalls.

Recent attempts to produce tritium were fully funded, but failed, which failure resulted in new plans for new attempts to produce tritium, which have not yet been fully funded.

The U.S. is also unable to produce or process a number of other critical materials, including lithium and enriched uranium. For instance, the United States largely relies on dismantling retired warheads to recover lithium to sustain and produce deployable warheads. This may be inadequate to support the nuclear force replacement program and any supplements to it.

Existing nuclear weapons have not received maintenance for a very long time, and it is unclear whether there is anyone with the relevant skills to perform maintenance and adequately test them for readiness.

Attempts to build new nuclear reactors in the US keep running into indefinite delays. To make significant amounts of plutonium 239 will need new reactors.

Plutonium 239 is the stuff used in nuclear weapons, plutonium 238 the stuff used in nuclear batteries, plutonium 240 is the stuff you don’t want because it spontaneously fissions. You want to produce your plutonium using enriched uranium in a sodium cooled fast neutron reactor because then you get considerably more of the plutonium you want, and considerably less of the plutonium you do not want. The US used to build fast neutron reactors, but all recent attempts to build a fast neutron reactor in the west have failed, and all existing fast neutron reactors in the West have stopped working. The only existing fast neutron reactors that are working well enough to produce significant amounts of plutonium are in Russia and China.

which game
No, I meant I'm going to run a war game for the destruction of the Three Gorges Dam by putting a watering hose next to an ant mound in the front yard. I'll even throw some matchbox cars and helicopters next to the mound to simulate the PLA.

Chinese people are pretty much big ants, so it should work out nicely.

Isn't that pretty much proof that multi-culturalism can actually regress a nations technology instead of just stalling its progress?

Ask yourself how much of "STEM" is strategically relevant to military industry and engineering.
Hint: basement-dwelling algebra fetishist academics are not.

Especially so considering a good half of the "STEM graduates" are diversity representatives graduating by the quota.

As an "algebra fetishist" I let you know I do not live in a basement I have my own room, okay? and I am not an academic they kicked me out and I am self-employed as an unpaid freelance professional Mongolian novella reader and Chinese tapestry viewer.

The dynamical systems lot, though, are actually relevant to military (aircraft, aerodynamics or some such slap), or so they keep telling you. That unruly mob, the whole 'applied mayhematics' bunch, are held beneath contempt by both the pure mathematicians and engineers. They just keep wanking themselves about "muh relevance" and "muh real-world applications" bunch of uppity, self-important, unpleasant cunts, I'm telling ya.

You can't use your nukes because you're just as likely to cause your own nation's demise.
At the very least you'll get a total trade blockade by most major nations causing an economic collapse.

How the fuck can we not produce tritium? Did we forget how to build breeder reactors?
If only multi-culturalism could have "regressed" video games and cartoons back to the 80's or 90's instead.
