US-Russian military picture: focus on 2016

The signing away of the defenses of Europe, of America, of the West and the contemplated signing away again of even greater defenses is a dire prophecy to all people of light who above all require time and space [in order to fulfill their destiny].  -Alpha and Omega:  7-3-1988 at RTR, Montana via Messenger E C Prophet

U. S. Senate on 5-27-88 signed INF Treaty that eliminated ground-launched nuclear missiles of 300-3400 mile range; US also agreed to eliminate conventionally-armed cruise missiles deployed in defense of Europe, to please the Soviets.

But the missiles we are removing threaten military targets in the Soviet Union. They were the only weapons we possessed that could take out Soviet command centers in 10-12 minutes. -Messenger ECP in Pearls of Wisdom of 10-27-1988,

“A legitimate question arises: On the one hand, we have signed the Soviet-U.S. treaty, and we are honoring it, but this can’t last endlessly,” Ivanov said according to Interfax.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said June 19 that some of Russia’s “neighbors,” a reference to China, were developing INF missiles and suggested Moscow would not allow the INF treaty to hinder its strategic arms buildup.

“We cannot accept a situation that would put the strategic deterrent system out of balance and make our nuclear forces less effective,” Putin said on the same day Obama announced plans for a one-third cut in the U.S. deployed nuclear warhead arsenal. http://freebeacon.com/treaty-cheating/

USA natal chart– sun: 10.7 Tau., mars: 13 Ari., moon: 16.6 Can., pluto: 19 Aqu.
Soviet Union natal chart– sun: 14.3 Sco., uranus: 19 Aqu., saturn: 14 Leo
combined they clearly form a full fixed cross. but the US natal mars by mars progression* is a factor.
mars takes 1.88 Earth-years to orbit sun; its progression rate then is 1/1.88= .532 degrees/yr.
.532 degrees/yr x Z = 121 degrees. It is 121 degrees between 13 Ari and 14 Leo.
121/ .532 = 227.4 years. 1789.3 + 227.4 = 2016.7 A.D. which is ~late summer of that year.

1-10-14 A high-ranking Russian military figure says the country’s armed forces will be equipped with advanced self-propelled and medium-range surface-to-air Buk-M3 missile defense systems in 2016.

“We are now in the midst of planned rearmament to replace Buk-M1 with Buk-M2. We expect to receive Buk-M3s starting from 2016,” Russian Air Defense Force’s chief, Major General Alexander Leonov, told the Ekho Moskvy radio network on Saturday.

HONG KONG — If the People’s Liberation Army went to war tomorrow, it would field an arsenal bristling with hardware from some of America’s closest allies: Germany, France and Britain.

Most of China’s advanced surface warships are powered by German and French-designed diesel engines. Chinese destroyers have French sonar, anti-submarine-warfare helicopters and surface-to-air missiles.

Above the battlefield, British jet engines drive PLA fighter bombers and anti-ship strike aircraft. The latest Chinese surveillance aircraft are fitted with British airborne early warning radars. Some of China’s best attack and transport helicopters rely on designs from Eurocopter, a subsidiary of pan-European aerospace and defense giant EADS.

But perhaps the most strategic item obtained by China on its European shopping spree is below the waterline: the German-engineered diesels inside its submarines.

Emulating the rising powers of last century – Germany, Japan and the Soviet Union – China is building a powerful submarine fleet, including domestically built Song and Yuan-class boats. The beating hearts of these subs are state-of-the-art diesel engines designed by MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH of Friedrichshafen, Germany. Alongside 12 advanced Kilo-class submarines imported from Russia, these 21 German-powered boats are the workhorses of China’s modern conventional submarine force.

With Beijing flexing its muscles around disputed territory in the East China Sea and South China Sea, China’s diesel-electric submarines are potentially the PLA’s most serious threat to its American and Japanese rivals. This deadly capability has been built around robust and reliable engine technology from Germany, a core member of the U.S.-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Arms trade data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) to the end of 2012 shows that 56 MTU-designed diesels for submarines have been supplied to the Chinese navy.

“They are the world’s leading submarine diesel engines,” says veteran engineer Hans Ohff, former managing director of the Australian Submarine Corporation, the company that built Australia’s Collins-class conventional submarines.

MTU declined to answer questions about transfers to the Chinese navy, future deliveries or whether it supplies technical support or servicing. “All MTU exports strictly follow German export laws,” a company spokesman said.
