Army tests tactical network for advanced adversaries


FORT BLISS, Texas and WASHINGTON — The Army was preparing to ship out after helping Gorgas defend itself from the belligerent state of Donovia. Gorgas and Donovia are in peace talks — or so the Army thought.

Donovia is again up to no good along the border. Gorgas fears it is using separatist regions, which claim Donovian descent and wish to align with the country, to try to seize terrain and resources in Gorgas.

Sound familiar? That’s because the scenario mimics the ongoing Ukrainian-Russian conflict. But the Army isn’t in Russia, it’s in the expansive, desolate desert of Texas along the US-Mexico border for Network Integration Evaluation 16.2.


The Army is using a scenario similar to what it might encounter in a conflict with Russia, which involves full-spectrum operations to prove out and refine emerging aspects of its tactical network.

“It stresses the network differently than it would if, say, we were just doing counterinsurgency or just doing offensive operations,” Doug Wiltsie, executive director of the Systems of Systems Engineering and Integration Directorate with the Army’s Acquisition, Logistics and Technology branch, told Defense News in an interview May 26 at the C4ISR & Networks conference in Arlington, Virginia. “It really stresses the network in how we are moving, so nodes are moving, and then how much information is being passed.”

240th Quartermaster Supply Co. makes bulk fuel history prepping for Anakonda ’16
May 27, 201650
Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter





www.army.mil
Our Soldiers from the 240th Quartermaster Supply Company’s Fuel and Water Platoon made history as the first American bulk fuel unit to receive and store petroleum at a fuel system supply point in the country of Poland on May 22,” said Maj. Shelia Day, 18th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion Executive Officer.

Before this support of the massive NATO exercise Anakonda 2016, the 18th CSSB, 16th Sustainment Brigade unit last directed fuel and water operations while establishing an FSSP and Tactical Water Purification System storage and distribution site during exercise Saber Junction 2016 in Grafenwoehr, Germany.

“This shows the commitment our Soldiers possess for logistical support to NATO, our host nation, and the Regionally Allocated Forces,” said Cpt. Joseph Taylor, 240th QMSC Commander.

An established fuel supply is a force enabler that maintains readiness in a Strong Europe and the platoon is becoming more proficient with the FSSP with this training.

“Laying out the system and establishing the fuel flow is a challenging experience,” said Spc. Yhasmin Hillman, a petroleum supply specialist with the unit. “I’m elated to see the company make history by wetting the bags for the first time in Poland.”

US Army moves ahead with handgun replacement programme

Andrew White, Tampa, Florida - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
31 May 2016



The US Department of Defense (DoD) will downselect a total of three preferred bidders in the third quarter of 2016 as its Modular Handgun System (MHS) programme continues on course despite recent calls to replace the effort with a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution.

In April, US Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley suggested procuring 9x19 mm Glock 19 handguns to replace legacy Beretta M9 handguns instead of a more complicated modified solution in line with the MHS original solicitation. The total programme could comprise a requirement for up to 500,000 weapon systems destined to equip army, navy, and air force personnel as well as the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).

Speaking to IHS Jane's at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa, Florida, industry sources explained how the DoD had received a total of 12 bids in February in response to the XM17 MHS Request for Proposals (RfP) published in September 2015.

Entrants are understood to include Beretta's APX, Ceská zbrojovka's CZ P-09, FN Herstal's Five-Seven Mk 2, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems (GDOTS) and Smith & Wesson's M&P polymer handgun; the Glock 17 and 22; and Sig Sauer's P320. However, sources informed IHS Jane's that the DoD had yet to make a final decision regarding calibre of the MHS, although 9x19 mm and .40 calibre appear to be favourites at the moment.

One defence source suggested that .45-calibre weapons appear to have been discounted because of size, weight, and accuracy issues. Most manufacturers are therefore supplying weapon systems in a range of calibres as part of their bids.

The DoD has now begun an evaluation programme of the 12 weapon systems. A downselection to three is expected to be made in August, leading the way into a nine-month production verification test (PVT) programme. Following the successful conclusion of the PVT, a preferred bidder will be selected ahead of low-rate initial production and first deliveries to US armed forces.

US Army Selected IMI Systems’ APS Technology
Jun 6, 2016




The US Army’s Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC), along with its US Army Research Development Engineering Command (RDECOM) partners, selected IMI Systems’ Iron Fist-based Active Protection System (APS) technologies. That reported by www.israeldefense.co.il.

This will demonstrate an implementation of the TARDEC led RDECOM effort toward Modular Active Protection Systems (MAPS) architecture including connectivity with MAPS central controller and software.

IMI Systems’ Active Protection Systems (APS) approach, in partnership with GD-OTS, increases the self-defense capability of the entire range of armored platforms, from light- and medium-weight Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) to heavy Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFVs) and Main Battle Tanks (MBTs). The MAPS program seeks to eliminate barriers associated with the US fielding of APS through a modular and safe design that establishes the foundation to transition tailored capability integrated on any platform.

IMI’s APS vehicle portfolio is based on Iron Fist, designed for heavy AFVs and MBTs, and Iron Fist Light Configuration (IF-LC), a downscaled version of the Iron Fist designed for light to medium APCs and AFVs. The system’s hard-kill concept is based on intercepting the threat using a small warhead, initiated at a safe distance from the defended platform.

The Iron Fist and IF-LC technologies are able to provide 360-degree protection coverage for very close-range scenarios in both open field and urban environments. The System features a Situational Awareness capability to provide robust and reliable detection, accurate trajectory prediction, and short reaction time in all terrain environments.

The design of the IF-LC miniaturizes the dimensions of APS while maintaining combat efficacy and force protection. IF-LC’s scale facilitates rapid integration onto the full range of combat vehicles. Its dimensions open the possibility for equipping new light vehicles and medium vehicles with APS, as well as upgrading legacy platforms for which size, weight, and power constraints require maximum efficiency from an APS solution.

During recent months, IF-LC has passed rigorous internal IMI testing to verify its maturity and applicability to current requirements. The results confirmed the technological maturity of IF-LC and its readiness for deployment in the most challenging operational environments.

MAPS compliant technology will be demonstrated on a vehicle as part of the planned MAPS demonstrations.

Anakonda Kicks Off In Poland With Major US Army Involvement
Jen Judson, Defense News 9:29 a.m. EDT June 7, 2016




WARSAW, Poland — Poland has kicked off its joint multinational exercise with heavy US Army participation in order to test readiness and interoperability using 31,000 soldiers from 24 countries, 100 aircraft, 12 vessels and 3,000 vehicles.

The US Army’s role in the biggest Polish national exercise, called Anakonda, will include a multinational air assault and airborne operations as well as bridging operations and live fire, command post, field training, cyber and electronic warfare exercises led by the 4th Infantry Division Headquarters.

Among some of the key activities, the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division will conduct an airborne operation into the Torun training area to secure terrain east of the Vistula river and the 10th Army Air & Missile Defense Command will conduct electronic warfare exercises in the Utzka training area in support of air defense artillery brigade maneuvers that will include live fire exercises.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said Monday during the opening ceremony that the single purpose for the US Army in Anakonda is to demonstrate that the US Army is “shoulder to shoulder” with Poland, its army and NATO “to ensure that all countries of NATO remain free and independent.”

He added the forces participating in the exercise are doing so to “ensure mutual defense and deter aggression and in particular we need to work on our collective skills of interoperability and readiness.”

During the opening ceremony, Antoni Macierewicz, the Polish defense minister, took pains to stress the exercise has a “purely defensive character,” noting the “difficult circumstances” in Poland and along the Eastern flank.

Poland and the countries that border Russia are becoming increasingly concerned with Russia’s aggression in the region as it continues to provoke Ukraine and occupy Crimea. Many Baltic countries fear Russia’s provocative behavior will spread to inside their own borders.

Macierewicz added that the Polish military would “especially” like to evaluate cooperation in the context of hybrid warfare on land and sea and with special forces.

Russia’s continued attacks on Ukraine have been characterized as hybrid warfare.

Army Green Lights Mid-Tier Network Capability, Airborne Radio RFP Due Out Soon
Jen Judson, Defense News 3:22 p.m. EDT June 9, 2016


WASHINGTON — The US Army determined it has the need for the mid-tier network capability and is preparing to make a production decision for the radio that goes with the network later this summer, the service confirmed.

The Army validated the need for a mid-tier network capability at the recently conducted Network Integration Evaluation 16.2 at Fort Bliss, Texas, over two weeks in May, Paul Mehney, a spokesman for Program Executive Office Command, Control, Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T), told Defense News.

The program will use the production decision to seek Pentagon permission to proceed with low rate initial production for the MNVR radio, he added.

Lockheed Martin Receives $331 Million U.S. Army Contract for Guided MLRS Rocket Production
(Source: Lockheed Martin; issued June 15, 2016)
DALLAS --- Lockheed Martin received a $331.8 million contract from the U.S. Army for Lot 11 production of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) rockets. The contract calls for the production of GMLRS Alternative Warhead rockets, GMLRS Unitary rockets and Reduced-Range Practice Rockets (RRPRs) for the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) to Israel, Finland, Jordan and Singapore.

Work will be performed at the Lockheed Martin facilities in Camden, Arkansas, and Dallas. All production deliveries are anticipated to be completed by March 2018.

"Our domestic and international customers continue to display their confidence in this combat-proven system by placing orders for the family of MLRS munitions, including the new GMLRS Alternative Warhead round," said Ken Musculus, vice president of Tactical Missiles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "Guided MLRS is trusted, reliable and affordable."

GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons. The new GMLRS Alternative Warhead (AW) was the first munition developed to service area targets without the effects of unexploded ordinance, complying with DoD cluster munitions policy. GMLRS Unitary rockets greatly exceed the required combat reliability rate and have established a reputation for affordability. The RRPR allows users to train with realistic, full-motored rockets with limited flight range, making them ideal for smaller testing ranges.

In combat operations, each GMLRS rocket is packaged in an MLRS launch pod and is fired from the Lockheed Martin HIMARS or M270 family of launchers. GMLRS was established as an international cooperative program among the U.S., France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Other international customers include Japan, Bahrain, Finland, Israel, Jordan, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.

Lockheed Martin has produced more than 30,000 GMLRS rockets at its facility in Camden. The company's Camden Operations has received more than 60 awards over the last decade, including the 2012 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the Shingo Silver Medallion Award for Operation Excellence.


Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 125,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.

North Carolina Guard Soldiers bring out the big guns and rockets with Polish comrades
Jun 17, 2016



North Carolina Army National Guard’s Griffin battalion Soldiers met, learned and shared their artillery knowledge with their Polish army counterparts here during Exercise Anakonda earlier this month.

The Polish army invited the 5th Battalion, 113th Field Artillery Regiment, Soldiers to get a first-hand experience with their weapon systems as well as the Polish army to get a first-hand experience with the Griffin battalion’s High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS).

“It was outstanding seeing what an ally uses as a weapons system and learning about their tactics and techniques,” said U.S. Army Maj. Chris Rosehart, the 5-113th FAR Operations Officer.

The day began preparing to convoy the light multiple rocket launchers on a six-wheeled, armored 23-foot-long U.S. Army medium tactical vehicle. The launcher chief, the crew and vehicle commander, stands out the hatch allowing maximum visibility guiding the team safely. The 333-horsepower engines roar down the road, like the battalion’s mascot, as the massive vehicles travel to the training area.

Their destination, Jaworze Training Area (JTA), is a base in the Polish countryside, where their hosts have several of their own heavy weapons on display including a 152mm AHS DANA, a self-propelled artillery vehicle, and a 122mm WR-40 Langusta self-propelled multiple rocket launcher.

The convoy thundered beside the Polish vehicles. Language barriers dissolved quickly as Griffin Soldiers climbed aboard the giant Polish weapons systems. Guard members shared knowledge from years of combat experience, from supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraq Freedom as well as stateside training, with their Polish counterparts.

Polish Soldiers with several combat deployments, supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and other NATO-supported operations, returned the favor assisting the NCNG Soldiers with aiming or simulated loading of the huge Polish heavy artillery.

Dozens of Polish soldiers swarmed the 5-113th FAR’s prime piece of equipment, the HIMARS. Interpreters were swamped with questions about range, aiming, command and control, lethality and interoperability. Griffin Soldiers simulated the loading, aiming and firing the six telephone-pole-sized rockets in a few minutes.

“It was great to be around other nation’s soldiers; most people never get a chance to experience that,” said U.S. Army Sgt. Phillip Hughes, a truck driver with the 5-113th FAR.

As midday arrived, the Poles invited their new comrades to share a meal at their field dining facility. Several unit shoulder insignias and challenge coins, a small coin or medallion bearing an insignia or emblem carried by an organization’s members or presented to distinguished visitors, were shared and vigorous embraces were given.

This meeting was the beginning step of the continuous communication and coordination needed for a successful live fire exercise during AN16, and if needed, real-world cooperation during a future operation.

“Integration is incredibly important! Each (of us) has different practices and we found (out) we had many similarities, but small differences can lead to big complications,” said U.S. Army 1st Lt. Earle Pope, the 5-113th FAR Fires Direction Officer.

AN16 is a premier multinational drill seeking to train, exercise, and integrate the Polish national command and force structure into a joint multinational environment.

US Apaches go into action in Iraq

Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
17 June 2016


US Army AH-64 Apache attack helicopters deployed to Iraq have engaged Islamic State targets for the first time since October 2014, the Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter announced on 13 June.

An unknown number of Apaches have been in Iraq since at least October 2014, when then chairman of the joint chief of staff General Martin Demspey said they had been used to defend Baghdad. They have not seen action since then, but the US military listed them in April as one of several 'enablers' that it would use to support Iraqi forces.

In a briefing on 15 June, Colonel Christopher Garver, the spokesman for Operation 'Inherent Resolve', said the Apaches used Hellfire missiles to destroy a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) near Al-Qayyarah in Ninawa province early on 13 June.

"The Apaches provide another platform with significant capabilities into the already potent mix of aircraft and weapons systems the coalition is employing to defeat Daesh [the Islamic State]," he said.

Al-Qayyarah is the current objective of the Iraqi forces pushing towards the Islamic State-held city of Mosul 60 km to the north.

Earlier in June, the Iraqi MoD announced that the 37th Brigade of the 9th Armoured Division is to support the operation. It has also released photographs showing M1A1 tanks of the division's 35th Brigade also heading north.

The Iraqi Ministry of Defence announced on 14 June that the 37th Brigade had assisted the 71st Brigade of the 15th Infantry Division in taking control of villages on the other side of the Tigris.

Col Garver said the US-led coalition had carried out 50 airstrikes in support of the offensive over the previous week. "Resistance from Daesh fighters has been generally moderate, consisting of small-arms fire, indirect fire, and VBIED use," he said.

L’US Army a de gros problèmes avec ses effectifs


Posté dans Amériques, Forces terrestres par Laurent Lagneau Le 23-06-2016




Les dépenses militaires américaines sont, de loin, les plus élevées du monde. Mais comparer des budgets ne rime pas à grand chose dans la mesure où il faudrait, par exemple, prendre en compte le niveau de vie des pays, le coût d’un ticket repas d’un soldat n’étant pas le même aux États-Unis, en Chine ou en France. Et puis, un autre paramètre rarement évoqué est le coût de la bureaucratie…

Bref, bien qu’elle dispose de ressources que d’autres forces armées lui envient, l’US Army connaît des problèmes budgétaires qui sont loin d’être anodins puisqu’ils ont des conséquences directes sur la préparation opérationnelle de ses brigades de combat.

Ainsi, d’après le général Daniel B. Allyn, le chef d’état-major adjoint de l’US Army, seulement un tiers de ces brigades sont prêtes à aller au combat. « À bien des égards, nous hypothéquons notre capacité à construire la force dont nous allons avoir besoin dans un avenir proche », a-t-il affirmé, lors d’une intervention devant la Fondation Heritage, plus tôt dans ce mois.

L’une des causes de cette situation est lié au nombre important de militaires de l’US Army qui sont considérés comme étant « non déployables ». Ils seraient 100.000 à être dans ce cas, dont 80% en raison de problèmes médicaux.

Ce chiffre est deux fois plus important que celui avancé en novembre 2015 par le Sergeant Major of the Army (SMA), un sous-officier faisant partie des conseillers les plus proches du chef d’état-major. « La mission de l’armée étant de combattre et de gagner des guerre, c’est tout à fait inacceptable. Et cette mission concerne chaque soldat (…). Si vous ne pouvez pas combattre et gagner, alors il n’y a pas de place pour vous dans l’armée. Nous ne devons pas avoir d’état d’âme » à ce sujet, avait-il affirmé.

Mais le général Allyn a été moins abrupt que le SMA. « Une solution est de garder autant de soldats en bonne santé que possible », a-t-il dit. Et d’estimer qu’u moins 10.000 pourraient redevenir aptes. Une autre option serait de « travailler avec les anciens combattants pour accélérer le processus des demandes d’invalidité et des retraites médicales » car ces militaires « méritent une résolution plus rapide de leur dossier afin qu’ils puissent obtenir l’aide dont ils ont besoin », a-t-il avancé.

Un autre problème de l’US Army concerne la gestion des carrières et le recrutement. Sur ce dernier point, il lui faut 120.000 recrues par an pour se maintenir à niveau, même si ses effectifs passeront de 490.000 à 450.000 personnels.

« Nous savons que ça va être tendu cette année atteindre les objectifs que nous nous sommes fixés pour le recrutement », a confié le général Allyn. Il y a plusieurs raisons à cela : le métier des armes n’est plus autant attractif que par le passé (ce qui touche l’ensemble des forces armées américaines) et le vivier de recrues potentielles se réduit d’année en année.

Le Pentagone estime en effet que « 71% des quelques 34 millions d’Américains âgés de 17 à 24 ans » ne répondent pas aux critères exigés pour servir sous l’uniforme, que ce soit pour des raisons de santé, de problème(s) avec la justice ou bien encore d’un trop faible niveau d’instruction.

Évidemment, ces problèmes sont d’autant plus ennuyeux que le format de l’US Army ne cesse de fondre pour revenir à niveau moindre qu’avant les attentats du 11 septembre 2001. Et cela alors que la situation internationale est loin d’être apaisée. Cette baisse des effectifs pose « un risque si l’Army doit faire face à des crises dans le monde entier », a estimé le général Allyn.

Army Testing Foreign Active Protection Systems For US Combat Vehicles
Jen Judson, Defense News



WASHINGTON — The US Army is turning to foreign systems for an interim solution for advanced protection for its combat vehicles against rocket-propelled grenades, anti-tank guided missiles and other threats.

The service’s effort to rapidly integrate already developed solutions is heating up this summer as the Army tests out what will likely be four different solutions on M1 Abrams tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Stryker combat vehicles.

Such threats like RPGs aren’t just resident in one theater, but are problems world-wide for armored combat vehicles and it’s only growing, particularly in the Central and European Command area of operations.

Partly spurring the effort is the possibility that Russia is ahead of the US Army when it comes to armor protection as evidenced by the reported survivability of its tanks when up against Ukrainian anti-tank and anti-armor weapons in the ongoing conflict along Ukraine’s border with Russia.

Palantir Takes Fight With Army To Federal Court
Jen Judson, Defense News 1:28 p.m. EDT July 1, 2016


WASHINGTON — Palantir Technologies has filed a bid protest in the US Court of Federal Claims against the US Army for issuing what it says is an unlawful procurement solicitation for the service’s next iteration of its internally developed intelligence software suite that shuts the company’s commercial offering out of the competition.

The 81-page protest was filed in court the evening of June 30. Palantir argues that the lawsuit was necessary because the Army should be stopped from moving forward on an unlawful and risk-prone software development project that would reinvent the wheel at a very high price.

The protest comes at no surprise as the Silicon Valley-based company — through its lawyers at Boies, Schiller & Flexner, LLP, in Washington — sent a letter of intent to US Army Contracting Command on June 16 stating it would file a protest within a few weeks.

In that letter, Palantir’s lawyers call the Army acquisition efforts for the Distributed Common Ground System-Army Increment 1 and Increment 2 both illegal and irrational.

Engility to provide engineering support to US Army's TENCAP programme

Engility has received a contract from the US Army to continue providing engineering support to its Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities (TENCAP) programme.

Valued at $24m, the contract requires the company to support TENCAP, which provides actionable intelligence information to army commanders.

The contract, awarded in the year's second quarter, includes an eight-month base length with four optional years.


Engility CEO Lynn Dugle said: "Our systems engineering knowledge, combined with insight into advanced science and technology and research and development initiatives within the intelligence community, has produced real-time cooperative data exchanges across the network of intelligence disciplines.

"As a result, we have been able to produce an abundance of courses of action for warfighter situational awareness."

Engility has maintained regular contact and interactions throughout the intelligence community (IC) under the TENCAP programme, as part of its contract with the army.

The IC components include Army G2, the National Reconnaissance Office, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency.

Engility and the TENCAP programme will develop intelligence support to meet warfighters' needs, under a partnership with IC agencies.

In April this year, Engility was contracted to provide support services to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which aims to counter chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) threats.

Under the $248m contract, Engility will provide technical consulting and systems engineering to the agency, working alongside its research and development directorate in the US Department of Defense's (DOD) Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Combat Support Agency.

Washington va déployer une batterie antimissile THAAD en Corée du Sud; Moscou et Pékin protestent


Posté dans Asie-Pacifique, Défense antimissile par Laurent Lagneau Le 08-07-2016




En octobre 2013, afin de contrer la menace balistique nord-coréenne, un rapport du ministère sud-coréen de la Défense avait plaidé pour le déploiement du système américain antimissile THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense). Ce qui donna ensuite lieu à des échanges d’informations entre Séoul et Washington au sujet de ce dernier.

On en était là quand la Corée du Nord a procédé, en janvier, à son quatrième essai nuclaire ainsi qu’au lancement, un mois plus tard, d’une fusée devant placer sur orbite le satellite Kwangmyong 4. Du coup, sur fond de tensions toujours aussi vives dans la péninsule coréenne, les discussions sur le déploiement du système THAAD en Corée du Sud viennent officiellement d’aboutir ce 8 juillet.

Ainsi, une batterie THAAD sera déployée au plus tard à la fin de l’année 2017 dans un endroit qui reste à définir. Elle restera placée sous le contrôle des Forces américaines en Corée du Sud (USFK).

« Le groupe de travail des deux pays a confirmé l’utilité militaire du système THAAD en Corée du Sud à travers des examens de plusieurs mois. La préparation finale visant à recommander aux ministres de la Défense des deux pays l’endroit pertinent qui pourrait garantir l’opérabilité, la protection de l’environnement, de la santé et de la sécurité est en cours », a précisé un communiqué commun aux autorités militaires américaines et sud-coréennes.

Opérationnel depuis 2008 et conçu pour d’intercepter des missiles balistiques de courte et moyenne portée quand ils sont en phase terminale dans la haute atmosphère et , le système THAAD sera « utilisé uniquement contre les menaces nucléaires et balistiques nord-coréennes une fois installé en Corée du Sud et ne visera jamais de pays tiers », ont fait valoir Washington et Séoul.

Seulement, depuis qu’il est question de déployer une batterie THAAD en Corée du Sud, la Chine et la Russie n’ont cessé de faire part de leurs préoccupations, d’autant plus qu’il est prêté à Washington l’intention de mettre en place un bouclier antimissile régional avec Séoul et Tokyo. Et cela porterait atteinte aux capacités des forces stratégiques russes et chinoises.

« Ce système de défense antimissile tend à porter atteinte à l’équilibre de la région (…) Nous espérons que nos partenaires éviteront de mener des actions qui pourraient avoir des conséquences irréparables », a réagi le ministère russe des Affaires étrangères. Et d’ajouter : « De telles actions, quelles que soient leurs justifications, ont un impact négatif sur la stabilité mondiale. Elles font peser la menace d’une aggravation des tensions et créeront de nouveaux problèmes dans la péninsule coréenne. »

Même ton pour la diplomatie chinoise : « Le déploiement de missiles en Corée ne favorisera pas la paix et la stabilité dans la péninsule et menacera la sécurité des pays voisins comme la Chine », a-t-elle fait valoir.
