NoLimit zone Your NoLimit site Wed, 21 Feb 2018 21:53:06 +0000 en-US hourly 1 New weapons of Russia: “Drill” for tanks Wed, 21 Feb 2018 21:53:06 +0000 The newest planned bomb cartridge “Duel” will be adopted by the Russian army in 2018, the general director of the concern “Techmash” Vladimir Lenin said on February 20 during the conference by the NGO “Bazalt.” The serial production of Drills and the massive supply of ammunition to the troops can dramatically increase the capabilities of the Russian Armed Forces.

The newest Dobel aerial bomb, which became known for the first time during the Army 2016 Forum, will be put into service in 2018, the general director of the Techmash concern Vladimir Lenin said during a scientific and technical conference held by the NGO Basalt.

“State tests of a new base model of a planning 500-kg bomb cartridge in equipment by self-targeting combat elements began in 2016. State tests are conducted by the program of the customer (Ministry of Defense of Russia), after the successful completion of which is 2018 this product is planned to be adopted, “Lepin said.

Unified planning bomb cartridge PBK-500U SPBE-K (“Drill”) has the ability of round-the-clock all-weather application. It is assumed that the dumping of the ammunition will be carried out without the entry of a carrier aircraft into the zone of destruction of anti-aircraft missile systems and complexes.

The planning bomb cartridge PBK-500U SPBE-K is designed to defeat armored vehicles, radar reconnaissance radar systems, control posts, anti-aircraft missile systems, and potential enemy systems.

“Drill” after separation from the carrier aircraft can fly to a distance of 30 km and deliver to the target area 15 combat self-targeting elements, the targeting of which on specific targets of destruction will be carried out using the global positioning system GLONASS.

The weight of the newest bomb PBK-500U SPBE-K is about 540 kg, the length of the ammunition reaches three meters. It is assumed that the Drill will be discharged from high altitudes and from the stratosphere (in particular, the interior height of the combat use of the new munition is called 14 km).

It is reported that the bomb cartridge itself and self-targeting elements have little radar visibility, which will significantly reduce the possibility of destruction of the “Drill” air defense missile and cannon complexes and small-caliber antiaircraft artillery of the enemy.

It is assumed that the “Drel” bomb will go down in the arsenal of all Russian aircraft, in internal bomb bays and under the wing pylons of which it will be possible to place this aircraft weapon of destruction.

(Not) the competitor of “Drill.”

One of the possible competitors of the Russian “Drills” abroad is called the small diameter bomb (SDB), which is in the arsenal of the US Air Force (but the majority of domestic specialists consider this comparison to be very incorrect – the SBD is planning a munition, but not a cassette one), and therefore these They are merely mundane to different classes.

As earlier wrote (, air bombs of this type began to be developed back in the 1990s to provide supersonic aircraft with high-precision missiles ( guided by GPS) with the possibility of their dumping from the internal bomb compartment of the plane. In particular, to the ammunition of this type is the GBU-39 aviation bomb weighing 113 kg.

At the beginning of the bombs of this type, it was planned to equip the fifth generation fighters. Now they are used in the US Air Force from F-15E, F-16, F-117, B-1, B-2, F-22 and F-35 planes, the US Air Force said earlier.

The systems for targeting small-diameter bombs operate in three bands: infrared, millimeter wave and laser. The combination of these sensors allows the weapon to track and hit moving targets in any meteorological conditions.

“The small diameter of ammunition of this type allowed GBU-39 to be placed not only on the suspension brackets but also in the internal weapon compartment. This significantly reduces the radar visibility of the carrier aircraft and increases its speed and maneuverability, “- told the deputy director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Konstantin Makienko.

Used aerodynamic wings in the GBU-39 provide the radius of combat use of the munition more than 100 km (at a discharge height from the carrier of about 10 km).

Also, it is not entirely clear, said a high-ranking source of in the industry, as our carrier aircraft will be protected from the fire of anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy. At the altitude of the bomber’s flight at 11-14 km, the zone of destruction of the long-range missile defense system is realized practically in full and reaches 150-200 km. And to hit enemy targets with a “Delay”, the carrier aircraft should approach them at a distance of 30 km.

However, not all adhere to such pessimistic assessments.

“The meaning of developing such ammunition – planning and navigating according to the global positioning system is the following,” Andrei Frolov, the editor-in-chief of the magazine “Export of Arms” explained to “” “It would seem that we have guided air-to-surface missiles with significantly greater range and power of the combat unit.” Why do we need airborne weapons of the “Drill” type? ”

According to the expert,

The whole issue is a price. Planning munitions with the guidance of the global positioning system in the tens, if not thousands of times cheaper than a guided air-to-surface missile.

It provides high accuracy of damage (3-5 m) with an extended range of flight. But most importantly, the price of this aircraft means of destruction allows you to apply it massively. It’s rather stupid to try to hit a $ 15,000 jeep with a large-caliber machine gun guided by a missile worth $ 500,000. This is absurd. And no economy can withstand the use of missiles of a similar price en masse. A planning munition with guidance on GPS, emphasizes Andrei Frolov, is an ideal munition for conflicts of low and even high intensity.

That is why “Drill” is an extremely promising bombing cassette.

And its adoption into service will dramatically increase the combat capabilities of the Russian army, the expert believes.

The first pair of Swedish fighters the Brazilian Air Force will receive by autumn 2019 Wed, 21 Feb 2018 17:58:22 +0000 The Brazilian Air Force will receive the first two of the 36 ordered Gripen E fighters in the third quarter of 2019. This was stated by the chief executive director of the Swedish company Saab Hakan Buske.

“The testing and evaluation of the Gripen E prototype are proceeding well; we received the characteristics better than expected, the second prototype will join the first car by the end of this year,” Hakan Buske said.

In December 2013, the Ministry of Defense of Brazil announced the selection of “Gripen E / F” company Saab winner of a tender for the supply of the country’s air force fighter of the new generation program F-X2. A contract worth $ 5.4 billion for the development and production of 36 Gripen E / F aircraft was signed by the company with the Brazilian Air Force in the fall of 2014. At the same time, a ten-year agreement on industrial cooperation was approved, including the transfer of production technologies to the Brazilian military-industrial complex. The partner of Saab in Brazil is Embraer. The contract provides for the full transfer of technology and the production in Brazil of at least 15 fighters, including eight dual-seat aircraft, which will be manufactured on the assembly line by the requirements of the Brazilian Air Force.

“Gripen E / F” will replace the “Mirage-2000C” removed from the armament, and in the future – upgraded F-5M and AMX A-1M, which are planned to be canceled in 2035.

The agreement with Saab includes the purchase of combat aircraft, logistics and the acquisition of weapons. Under the contract, 28 of the 36 aircraft will be performed in the single version of the “E” and eight in the “F” double.

JAS 39 Gripen is a Swedish multi-role fighter of the fourth generation. The “Gripen E” version is created by an existing project using innovative technological solutions that will save financial resources. Nevertheless, the combat capabilities of Gripen E will increase significantly compared to previous versions.

The fighter is equipped with a more powerful F414G “General Electric” engine, larger fuel tanks, which will provide the possibility of increasing the range of flight, the mass of weapons systems and payload. A new radar with an active phased array with electronic scanning, modernized display systems in the cockpit and modern onboard radio electronic equipment will enhance the capabilities to perform combat missions.

Trump v Oprah: President calls TV star ‘insecure’ Mon, 19 Feb 2018 18:55:42 +0000 US President Donald Trump fired off a vitriolic tweet at Oprah Winfrey, calling her “insecure” and heckling her for “biased and slanted” questions she posed during her roundtable discussion on 60 Minutes.

Winfrey was moderating a discussion aired on Sunday between 14 pro- and anti-Trump voters from Grand Rapids, Michigan, that were invited back onto the program, following up from a previous interview held six months ago.

The TV star asked the audience whether or not they would vote for Trump again, what they thought about his infamous “shithole countries” comment, and if Americans felt safer now that he was in office.

This didn’t sit too well with the commander-in-chief, who promptly lashed out.

“Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated just like all of the others,” he tweeted.

The tweet, which was posted at 8:28 pm Sunday evening, provoked a massive Twitter storm of responses for and against the POTUS. Several liberal voices vented their outrage at Trump.

However, some refused to ride the wave of anti-Trump sentiment, dishing out some of their own rebuttals.

SOLAR WARDEN—THE CLASSIFIED SPACE PROGRAM DEVELOPED USING ALIEN HI-TECH Mon, 19 Feb 2018 12:33:48 +0000 Solar Warden is the name given to a classified space program designed to keep Earth safe against malevolent extraterrestrial forces. Such a project could have only been completed with the help of advanced alien technology provided by the aliens looking out for us.

Conspiracy theorists claim it has been in existence for over 30 years, operating without the general public’s knowledge. And if you’re thinking “well, that’s just another loony theory unfairly built on people’s credibility,” we should remind you about British UFO hacker Gary McKinnon’s unbelievable story.

In 2001, McKinnon, a systems administrator at the time, hacked his way into almost 100 U.S. military and NASA terminals. He was searching for the government’s files on free energy but inadvertently chanced upon something much, much bigger.


Prior to illegally accessing the government’s computers, he had become involved with the Disclosure Project, a nonprofit organization “whose goal is to disclose to the public the government’s alleged knowledge of UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and advanced energy and propulsion systems.”

Among the files, he found there was information about “non-terrestrial officers” numbering in the thousands, as well as data regarding “fleet-to-fleet transfers.” As he kept searching, McKinnon an enigmatic kept popping up: Solar Warden.


George W. Bush’s Justice Department eventually discovered the UFO hacker’s intrusion and accused him of committing “the biggest military computer hack of all time.” If the United Kingdom were to extradite him to the U.S. he would have faced up to 70 years in prison and millions of dollars in fines. But that never happened and many suspects it was only because McKinnon still possessed crucial information that he used to leverage himself out. More so, his lawyer even had government officials testifying under oath about the existence of the Navy’s Space Fleet. Never heard of it?

According to McKinnon, the ultra-secret Solar Warden maintains a fleet of various spaceships. It consists of eight massive cigar-shaped mother ships and about four dozen smaller “scout vessels.” Hundreds of “Space Marines” are in service aboard these ships and each mothership has an additional crew of approximately 300 scientists and technicians on board. The Space Fleet is operated by the NNSOC (United States Naval Network and Space Operations Command).

No information exists on how Solar Warden was established and what extraterrestrial species(s) contributed to its creation but rumors about the implication of various earthly agencies and corporations abound. It’s been said that various Black Projects contractors in the U.S. aerospace industry are actively involved in the program, with countries like the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Russia chipping in as well.

Secret facilities such as Area 51, Dugway Proving Grounds, S4, Wright Patterson AFB and the infamous Dulce Underground Base are routinely used in testing and developing Solar Warden technology.

The reality is these claims cannot be verified and a theory as interesting as this one is sure to pick up a lot of additional, untrue details along the way. But before labeling it as just another crackpot idea, take a look at this:

In 1993, former Lockheed Martin Skunk Works CEO Ben Rich held a lecture at the UCLA’s James West Alumni Center in Los Angeles. He spoke about the progress registered in space engineering during the previous four decades. The last image in his presentation was that of a black disk “zipping out into outer space” and Ben concluded with the words:

We now have the technology to take ET home.

Those who attended said he wasn’t joking.

Lockheed’s Skunk Works have been operating for over 70 years and are credited with designing and building high-tech aircraft like the U-2 bomber, the SR-71 Blackbird, the F-22 Raptor and the F-117 Nighthawk. Rumors say they have plenty more futuristic flying machines in the making.

More than 20 years have passed since the Skunk Works’ former CEO claimed they had already achieved what we can only assume to be faster than light travel. If he was telling the truth, how advanced would their technology be now?

Could it be responsible for the ever-increasing number of UFO sightings? Whether these mysterious flying saucers are part of Solar Warden, top-secret military experiments or entirely alien, one thing is sure: tens of thousands of people are certain about what they saw.

If Solar Warden really exists, the implications are earth-shattering. Or should we say Earth-defending?

The US is no longer guaranteed future military technology dominance Mon, 19 Feb 2018 12:24:47 +0000 The US has enjoyed complete military dominance since about 1985. The Soviet Union and now Russia is competitive with the number of nuclear weapons.

Th Soviet Union also had a total volume of tanks and armored vehicles which the USA and its allies would uncertain of stopping or defeating.

There is now the IISS 2018 Military Balance annual assessment of the military capabilities and defense economics of 171 countries.

China is rapidly growing its fighter plane and stealth fighter capabilities. China has developed competitive air to air missile capabilities.

The West no longer has a monopoly on world-leading defense innovation and production, or the funds to enable these. Indeed, China might be the one to leap ahead.

China’s introduction of the J-20 stealth fighter means the US will lose its monopoly on operational stealthy combat aircraft.

China also continues to develop an array of advanced guided-weapons projects. The IISS now assesses that the latest in China’s expanding missile line-up – the PL-15 extended-range air-to-air missile – could enter service this year. This weapon appears to be equipped with an active electronically scanned array radar, indicating that China has joined the few nations able to integrate this capability on an air-to-air missile.

These advances are all part of the Chinese air force’s goal to become capable of challenging any opponent in the air domain. For the past three decades, air dominance has been a key advantage for the US and its allies. This can no longer be assumed.

The availability of affordable and competitive military technology will also be exported to other countries.

In November, the military will present the concept of a new high-speed helicopter Sat, 17 Feb 2018 22:52:03 +0000 The concept of a high-speed combat helicopter will be presented to the Russian military in November 2018. On Thursday, February 15, said  the general director of holding “Russian Helicopters” Andrey Boginsky

“This year the work on the contract, which we signed for the” Army-2017″, will be completed, the completion of these works is scheduled for November this year,” Andrei Boginsky said.

According to him, the customer will be presented with one or two concepts on a high-speed combat helicopter.

“We are guided by plans to raise this helicopter after 2025. Everything depends on the chosen concept, requirements, complexity and so on,” said Andrei Boginsky. “A lot is going on in the controversy, the two schools compete today, proving the advantage of this or that helicopter scheme. It is clear that international experience is also taken into account.Let us wait until the end of the year, I think, the customer will then be determined. ”

He noted that the reserve for a high-speed military helicopter is being developed by a civil flying laboratory, on which works were already initiated on an initiative basis.

It is assumed that the new device will be able to fly at speeds up to 400 km / h.

New submarines S-80 will cost the Spanish Navy almost a billion for each Sat, 17 Feb 2018 22:39:14 +0000 Four new submarines of class S-80 will cost the Spanish Navy 1.5 billion euros more than previously expected. On this Friday, February 16, reports IHS Janes concerning his sources in the Ministry of Defense of Spain.

As the newspaper notes, thus the total amount of delivery of four new submarines will be 3.68 billion euros, that is, 920 million per unit.

The Spanish government approved the program for the construction of new diesel-electric submarines in 2003. At the first stage, it was planned to supply four submarines, which they planned to put into operation in the period from 2013 to 2015. The contract was concluded with the Spanish Navantia and the British BAE Systems, which was entrusted with the construction of sections of the hull submarine. The first submarine “Isaac Peral” was laid in late 2007. The cost of the series was then estimated at 1.75 billion euros.

In 2013, when the construction of all four submarines was at different stages, it was found that the mass of each of them is almost 70 tons higher than the design one and critically reduces the buoyancy reserve in the underwater position. This put the entire program under attack. To find a solution to the problem of Navantiasigned a contract with the American Electric Boat, which pledged to help the Spaniards get rid of the odds.

Problems with the design have been superimposed on a sharp cut in funding and in fact since 2014 the construction of submarines has been frozen to the present day.

Now the Spanish Navy command expects that the government will approve the financing of the program on a new schedule, which assumes the transfer of the first submarine “Isaac Peral” to the fleet in 2021.

The S-80 submarine should replace the S-70 submarines, which have been in operation since the 1980s.

Equipped with an air-independent power plant, the S-80 will receive a displacement of 2,430 tons, the length of the hull is 71 meters. The speed of the water is 19 knots. Crew – 32 people (additional accommodation of eight divers is possible). Armament – six 533-mm torpedo tubes and cruise missiles Tomahawk.

Russia Confirms an Order for Two Battalions of T-14 Armata Next Generation Battle Tanks Fri, 16 Feb 2018 14:18:32 +0000 Russia’s Deputy Defence Minister Yuri Borisov has confirmed that the country’s ground forces have placed an order for two battalions of T-14 Armata main battle tanks. These came alongside an order for T-15 heavy infantry fighting vehicles and represents a critical part of the modernization of the Russian Army. Minister Borisov stated on a tour of the Uralvagonzavod factory in Russia’s Nizhny Tagil: “It’s no secret that we already have a contract for trials and combat operations: two battalions of Armata tanks and one battalion of heavy infantry fighting vehicles.” The T-15 is itself based on the T-14’s chassis, and the body of the versatile new Russian platform is set to replace that of the T-72 as the most widely used throughout the Russia ground forces. With the T-72 chassis being used for the BMPT-72 tank support vehicle, the T-90M2 advanced battle tank, the TOS-1 Thermobaric Rocket Launcher and the MTU-72 armored bridge layer among several other Russian platforms, the T-15 likely represents the first of many armored vehicles which will be based on the body of the T-72’s successor.

The T-14 represents one of only three fourth generation tank platforms in service today, the other two being South Korea’s K2 Black Panther and Japan’s Type-10. With the tank planned for production in far greater numbers than the two East Asian platforms, it is set to be by far the most cost-effective of the three next-generation tanks – though perhaps not the most sophisticated. Minister Borisov reported on the current status of the Armata programme that trials would begin in 2018 and continue until the end of 2019. Afterwards, in 2020, all new models would be complete and only then would a decision on large contracts for serial production be made. With the Russian and Soviet militaries having produced well over 25,000 T-72 battle tanks over several decades, and today is by far the world’s largest operator of battle tanks, the Armata is likely to set to be produced in very large numbers in future. With approximately 9,000 T-72s in service in the Russian armed forces alone, the T-14 is unlikely to be produced large enough numbers to replace its predecessor entirely in the near future. Production of several hundred units in the 2020s remains highly likely, however, particularly with signs of high demand from export clients for the next generation technology. While exports of South Korean and Japanese battle tanks are as of yet somewhat limited, exports of the T-14 could well prove highly successful based on both Russia’s better-established position as a longstanding exporter of armored vehicles and the far lower cost of its next-generation platform relative to its competitors.

Extraterrestrials Are Real: WATCH Guy Demonstrating Proof of His Trip to 2118 Fri, 16 Feb 2018 14:09:44 +0000

Believe it or not, there is a man who claims he traveled to the future and back to the 80s, while on a “top secret” CIA mission. He even says he has tangible proof.

He has shown a picture that he asserts he made during one of a string of adventurous leaps through time to as far ahead as 2118 while working for the CIA in 1981, according to a video posted by Apex TV.

He said there was a lot of risks associated with the move, but this could not stop the alleged former intelligence staffer from performing the feat. Similarly, he ran no less risk when giving an interview, Mr. Smith stressed.

When asked for evidence, he reached out to his inside pocket and retrieved a picture featuring tall, greenish futuristic-looking buildings.

Mr. Smith, who claims he is putting his own life at risk by being interviewed, also revealed that when aliens arrive, they will visit the world’s top officials.

He added: “Aliens do visit us, there are intelligent extraterrestrials that do come to Earth, and this is in the mid-21st century. The extraterrestrial threat shouldn’t be dismissed, he stressed, since, although aliens do not necessarily live among us, they come to visit on a regular basis.

He went on to ponder on the most substantial dangers of our era, which shouldn’t sound surprising:

“The number one threat to humanity as we know it is global warming, rising sea levels as well as the increase in CO2 in our atmosphere.”

But he’s not the first one to come up with surprising allegations and eyebrow-raising time travel stories this week.

A man nicknamed Noah, who allegedly arrived from the year 2030, passed a lie-detector test to better prove to the general public that he really knows what the immediate future holds for us, the Sun reported. Among his claims are that Donald Trump gets re-elected in 2020 and following a sweeping revolution in AI, top-notch computers will be worn like Google glasses.

One of the most recent claims, though, came from another alleged time traveler, William Taylor, who said that while working for the British government over a decade ago, he was sent to the year 8,973 in a specially-devised time capsule just to wake up in a complete utopia – with no disease, death or crime around, but inhabited by half-humans and half-robots.

The Kepler Space Telescope confirmed the existence of another 100 exoplanets Fri, 16 Feb 2018 12:26:31 +0000 An international group of astronomers reports that the number of detected exoplanets has increased by almost a hundred, thanks to the ongoing mission of K2 Space Telescope Kepler of NASA’s aerospace agency. After analyzing the latest data received from the telescope, scientists announced the discovery of 95 more planets, which generally increases the number of exoplanets detected within the K2 mission to almost 300.

“We started an analysis of 275 candidates, 149 of which were subsequently confirmed as exoplanets. At the same time, 95 of them are previously unknown, “commented lead author Andrew Mayo of the Danish Technical University.

Recall that the space mission “Kepler” was launched in 2009. Since then, the telescope has been circling around the Sun and is trying to discover new exoplanets through the transit method of observation – from time to time photographs other stars and seeks changes in their brightness. If the brightness decreases, and then after a certain period of time acquires the same value, then, most likely, this means that the light of the star is periodically blocked by a rather large body. In other words, perhaps, a planet.

The method is very laborious and requires an analysis of a huge amount of data. First, you need to highlight the periods of the change in brightness, and then confirm them. In addition, it works only if the planet and the star fall into the plane of the observer’s line of sight (either us, or, as in this case, the Kepler telescope). Nevertheless, the method is recognized by astronomers to be quite effective. Thanks to him, noted in NASA, within the main part of the mission “Kepler” found 5,100 candidates and confirmed the existence of 2341 exoplanets.

Unfortunately, in 2013 the space telescope faced a serious problem, when one of its gyroscopes, helping to navigate in space, failed. However, NASA found a way to extend the life of the space observer. For the orientation of the telescope, it was decided to use auxiliary steering motors. Thanks to this, the telescope serves science to this day.

The data that the Mayo team used for analysis were collected by the telescope as early as 2014. Scientists had to work hard to confirm that the marked changes in the brightness of the star were not caused by other possible factors.

“We found that the source of some signals is several star systems, as well as the electromagnetic noise of the spacecraft itself. But we also discovered planets ranging in size from very small earth-like to a size with Jupiter and even more, “commented Mayo.

“For example, one of the planets, which was not previously known, is located at the star HD 212657, located about 254 light years from us. It has a 10-day orbital period of rotation and is located at one of the brightest stars discovered within the Kepler K2 mission. “

Astronomers explain that the brighter the star, the more we can learn about the planet around it. And in the future, with the launch of more powerful telescopes, we will be able to obtain even sharper images of the detected objects. It is possible that thanks to new technologies, scientists will be able to obtain even information about the atmospheres of already detected exoplanets (for example, the TRAPPIST-1 system) and those that are yet to be found.

The search for exoplanets, of course, is connected with the desire of scientists to find extraterrestrial life. But only in part. Statistics are also important here, which will make it possible at least approximately to understand how many planets, in general, can exist in space: how many of them can be attributed to earth-like, how many to gaseous. Ultimately, this will reveal how unique and unique is our solar system, and how it fits into the overall picture of the universe.
