U.S. deploy large-scale military asset to counter Iran threats. This week, U.S. sends the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and four B-52 bombers to Middle East. The long-range nuclear capable B-52 bombers are now stand-by in Al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar. The move comes in response to concerns Iran may be planning an attack against American targets. On Thursday, the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) transits the Suez Canal. Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group is deployed to U.S. Central Command area of responsibility in order to defend American forces and interests in the region. With Abraham Lincoln as the flagship, deployed strike group assets include staffs, ships and aircraft of Carrier Strike Group 12, Destroyer Squadron 2, USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) and Carrier Air Wing 7; as well as Àlvaro de Bazàn-class frigate ESPS Méndez Núñez (F 104). According to the U.S. top officials, Iranian threat was both "on land and sea" and warns that Iran could attack commercial ships and oil production infrastructure.

US Navy Deadly Rail-Gun To Be Deployed on Zumwalt Destroyers For the past several years, the Navy has been developing the weapon, and it publicly tested one in 2014. The Navy planned to install a prototype railgun on a high-speed vessel, but the latest estimates suggest the prototyping stage could be pushed back until 2017. To avoid this unfortunate delay, Fanta proposed the idea of skipping the prototype phase and installing an operational unit on the USS Johnson, the Navy’s third and final next-generation Zumwalt-class destroyer that is slated for deployment in 2018. The railgun is different from conventional weapons, using electricity instead of an explosive material like gunpowder to fire a projectile. The railgun works by delivering a high-power electric pulse to a pair of conductive rails. This pulse creates a powerful magnetic field that accelerates the projectile out of the gun. Though it lacks the explosive power of a conventional weapon, the Navy’s railgun is not a “sissy” weapon. It can fire a 23-pound projectile over 100 miles at speeds of up to Mach 7 (roughly 1.5 miles per second). This rate of travel generates enough kinetic energy to inflict significant damage on a long-distance target. Besides being powerful, the railgun also is affordable, with railgun projectiles costing 1/100th the price of conventional missiles.

U.S, Japan AGM-114 Hellfire Missile Attack Exercise The AGM-114 Hellfire is an air-to-surface missile (ASM) first developed for anti-armor use, but later models were developed for precision strikes against other target types, and have been used in a number of targeted killings of high-profile individuals. It was originally developed under the name Heliborne, Laser, Fire and Forget Missile, which led to the colloquial name "Hellfire" ultimately becoming the missile's formal name. It has multi-mission, multi-target precision-strike ability, and can be launched from multiple air, sea, and ground platforms, including the Gray Eagle drone. The Hellfire missile is the primary 100-pound (45 kg) class air-to-ground precision weapon for the armed forces of the United States and many other nations. The Hellfire can be deployed from rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft, waterborne vessels and land-based systems against a variety of targets. Most variants are laser guided with one, AGM-114L "Longbow Hellfire", being radar guided. Laser guidance can be provided either from the launcher, such as the nose-mounted opto-electronics of the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, other airborne target designators or from ground-based observers, the latter two options allowing the launcher to break line of sight with the target and seek cover.

U.S. TESTED WORLD FIRST HYPERSONIC WEAPON The Boeing X-51 (or X-51 WaveRider) is an unmanned research scramjet aircraft for hypersonic flight at Mach 5 (3,300 mph; 5,300 km/h), an altitude of 70,000 feet (21,000 m). The aircraft was designated X-51 in 2005. It completed its first powered hypersonic flight on 26 May 2010. After two unsuccessful test flights, the X-51 completed a flight of over six minutes and reached speeds of over Mach 5 for 210 seconds on 1 May 2013 for the longest duration powered hypersonic flight. Waverider refers in general to aircraft that take advantage of compression lift produced by their own shock waves. The X-51 program was a cooperative effort by the United States Air Force, DARPA, NASA, Boeing, and Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne. The program was managed by the Aerospace Systems Directorate within the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). X-51 technology is proposed for use in the High Speed Strike Weapon (HSSW), a Mach 5+ missile which could enter service in the mid-2020s. DARPA once viewed X-51 as a stepping stone to Blackswift, a planned hypersonic demonstrator which was canceled in October 2008. In May 2013, the U.S. Air Force plans have X-51 technology applied to the High Speed Strike Weapon (HSSW), a missile similar in size to the X-51. The HSSW could fly in 2020 and enter service in the mid-2020s. It is envisioned to have a range of 500-600 nmi, fly at Mach 5-6, and fit on an F-35 or in the internal bay of a B-2 bomber.

This Is The World's Fastest And Largest Mega Bomber You Have Never Seen The North American XB-70 Valkyrie was the largest and fastest bomber ever built by the United States, but the massive six-engine Mach 3.0-capable jet never entered production. Only one surviving prototype sits in a museum in Dayton, Ohio, even as the Boeing B-52 it was supposed to one day replace continues to soldier on. The idea behind the XB-70 originated in the 1950s when it was assumed ever-greater speeds and altitudes would enable American bombers to survive against Soviet air defenses unmolested on their way to delivering their doomsday payloads. At the time, the only effective defense against bombers were fighters and antiaircraft artillery. Even then, anti-aircraft guns were only marginally effective and interceptors were increasingly challenged by ever improving bomber performance. The North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was the prototype version of the planned B-70 nuclear-armed, strategic bomber for the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command. In the late 1950s, North American Aviation designed the Valkyrie as a large, six-engine bomber capable of reaching Mach 3+ while flying at 70,000 feet (21,000 m). At these speeds, it was expected that the B-70 would be almost immune to interceptor aircraft, the only effective weapon against bomber aircraft at the time. The bomber would spend only a few minutes over a particular radar station, flying out of its range before the controllers could position their fighters in a suitable location for an interception. High speed also made the aircraft difficult to see on the radar displays and its high-altitude flight could not be matched by any contemporary Soviet fighter. The introduction of the first Soviet surface-to-air missiles in the late 1950s put the near-invulnerability of the B-70 in doubt. In response, the United States Air Force (USAF) began flying its missions at low level, where the missile radar's line of sight was limited by local terrain. In this low-level role, the B-70 offered little additional performance over the B-52 it was meant to replace being far more expensive with shorter range. Other alternate missions were proposed, but these were of limited scope. With the advent of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) during the late 1950s, manned bombers were increasingly seen as obsolete. The USAF eventually gave up fighting for its production and the B-70 program was canceled in 1961. Development was then turned over to a research program to study the effects of long-duration high-speed flight. As such, two prototype aircraft, designated XB-70A, were built; these aircraft were used for supersonic test-flights during 1964–69. In 1966, one prototype crashed after colliding in mid-air with a smaller jet aircraft; the remaining Valkyrie bomber is in the National Museum of the United States Air Force near Dayton, Ohio.

South China Sea - U.S Navy Confronted With Chinese Cat Guard The Chinese navy issued warnings (with cat voice) to the U.S. Navy jet eight times during the flight, telling it to leave the area. The United States maintains its planes and ships are exercising internationally recognized freedom of navigation rights in and over the South China Sea. South China Sea underpins the economic dynamism of the region, which is based on extensive intra-regional and international trade. More than 5 trillion dollars'worth of trade passes through these waters each year. But the sea is contests by several Asian countries, which make this region a hot spot and could slide into a very dangerous water. U.S policy towards the South China Sea has evolved in response to the increase of tensions in these disputes and in particular to China's actions. Although the U.S does not take a position on the underlying claims to sovereignty, it has increased its involvement in the dispute with an emphasis on the peaceful resolution of disputes. As a result, maritime security in the South China Sea has become an issues in US-China relations.

U.S. Military Is Developing IRON MECH SOLDIER - Full Documentary U.S military spend huge amount of money in Mech Soldier R&D, using exoskeleton or wearable robot. Exoskeletons allow soldiers to lift hundreds of pounds, pushing the boundaries of what humans can do. Designed around the function and shape of the human body, these devices can be a simple as a headset and gloves or as complex as a full suit of armor. In recent years, wearable robots have gotten smaller and more flexible - transforming into an extension of the human. In 2000, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the U.S. Department of Defense began a seven-year, $75 million program called Exoskeletons for human Performance Augmentation. The agency provide funding to robotic firm Sarcos to develop a powered exoskeleton for sodiers. DARPA accepted a Sarcos exoskeleton design in 2006 an the firm began building prototype.

See Why Russia And China Are Afraid Of This Deadly War Machine Approved for production in 1990, the M1A2 represents the U.S. Army’s technological improvement of the basic M1A1 design and the most modern battle tank in the world. Outwardly similar in appearance to the M1A1, the most notable exterior changes on the M1A2 are the redesigned Commander's Weapon Station (CWS) and the addition of a Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer) on the left side of the turret forward of the loader's hatch. Internally, however, the M1A2 has been radically redesigned to take advantage of newer technology. Most notable of these improvements is the addition of the Inter-Vehicle Information System (IVIS.) The IVIS system allows for the automatic and continual exchange of information between vehicles. By incorporating information provided by an on board Position/Navigation (POSNAV) system, unit commander's can track the location and progress of subordinate elements automatically, without tasking vehicle crews. In addition enemy positions can be identified, plotted and disseminated, while reports and artillery requests can be automatically formatted, transmitted, and processed. Lastly, map graphic control measures and operational orders can be rapidly distributed via the IVIS system. To ensure information security, all IVIS data transmissions are routed through the M1A2's SINCGARS radio system. Improving on the "hunter-killer" tank commander-gunner target hand off method pioneered on the German Leopard II, the M1A2 takes this a step further by providing the Tank Commander with an independent thermal sight. This CITV sight allows the commander to independently scan for targets in all weather conditions and through battlefield obscurants. In addition to IVIS and the CITV, the M1A2 incorporates a number of additional electronic upgrades. Power distribution throughout the tank has been improved, relying on multiple bus paths so that in the event one conduit is damaged, power may still be delivered to a component via an alternate path. The driver's instrument display has been upgraded to a more detailed digital display and the Gunner's Primary Sight has been stabilized in two axes for increased accuracy. Approved for implementation in 1995, the M1A2 SEP (System Enhancement Package) is a technology upgrade and standardization program, whereby the Army's fleet of M1s and M1A2s will all be brought to a common standard. Most notable among the modifications will be the introduction of a standard under armor auxiliary power unit and the addition a crew compartment air conditioning and cooling unit. Other modifications within the vehicle will include upgrades to the IVIS system (color display, full size keyboard, digital mapping and graphics generation capability, and voice recognition capabilities), upgrades to the Gunner's Primary Sight assembly, and improvement in the tank's intercom and radio communications systems. Production of the M1A2 was halted after the initial run of 627 vehicles. As part of the fleet upgrade program, 547 of the Army's current inventory of M1s are being upgraded to M1A2 SEP standards, which will require the complete remanufacturing of the turret, while the current fleet of M1A2s will undergo a retrofit to bring them up to SEP standards.

Breaking: North Korea Fires Multiple Projectiles Amid Talk Failure Breaking News, North Korea has test-fired several short-range ballistic missile into Japan Sea on Saturday. The missiles flew between 70km to 200km before exploding into the water. South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said those projectiles are fired from the eastern town of Wonsan into the sea off Korea’s east coast just after 9 a.m. local time. Experts on the North Korea agreed that Kim Jong Un returns to his tactical plan to pressure United States to soften its sanctions. The missiles launch also comes after talk breakdown between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong -Un in Vietnam last month. The White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that the United States was aware of North Korea’s actions and would continue to monitor the situation. The South Korea and the United States are closely sharing information about the launches. Japan’s Defence Ministry said the projectiles weren’t a security threat and didn’t reach anywhere near the country’s coast.

Breaking: Russia Large-Scale Military Parade With ICBM On Display Russia kicked off large-scale annual military parade in Moscow's Red Square to celebrate the 74th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany in World War II. More than 13,000 Russian servicemen participated in the parade and over 130 units of modern weapons and military equipment were displayed with the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin, senior officials, war veterans and guests. Putin congratulated all in his speech on the Victory Day which commemorates "the victory over fascism and retribution to the Nazis for all their atrocities," and expressed gratitude to the soldiers who defended their fatherland. The Russia president stressed that Russia resolutely defends the true heroes of the Great Patriotic War, which remains a "sacred duty" to the country, and allows no distortions about the event or betrayals to their ancestors. In the meantime, Russia will continue enhancing its defense capabilities and working with other countries to fight terrorism, neo-Nazism and extremism, he said. The parade started at 10:00 local time. After a general tribute to the Russian flag and the Victory Banner in the national anthem played by the military band, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, riding in an open-roof car, reviewed the troops in orderly alignment and reported on their readiness to Putin, the supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces. After Putin's speech, servicemen from the Armed Forces, National Guard, military academies, the Emergencies Ministry and the Federal Security Service in 35 formations marched across the Red Square as the military band played. More than 130 items of armaments were presented in the parade, led by a T-34 tank, followed by Tigr-M armored vehicles, Kamaz Typhoon mine-resistant vehicles, T-72B3 and T-14 Armata tanks, Iskander-M ballistic missiles, BM-30 rocket launchers and Yars RS-24 intercontinental ballistic missile systems, among others. The airshow traditionally in the final session of the parade was canceled due to unfavorable weather conditions. Originally, 74 aircraft were scheduled to participate in the parade. The Victory Day is one of the most ceremonious festivals in Russia, for which large-scale military parades are held in different cities involving tens of thousands of troops as well as most advanced weapons and military equipment. This year, a total of 29 Russian cities, including Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad, held military parades to commemorate the victory, with the participation of over 57,000 Russian servicemen and 1,500 military armaments, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
