Russia successfully tests missile capable of destroying US GPS/telecom/spy satellites
The Soviets have had the leading anti-satellite rocket program since the 60's. They invented it, just as they invented the first space satellite Sputnik.

Again the US largely ignored this area as the Soviet union was collapsing and they chose instead to spent trillions on Star Wars anti-missile shield programs like short range plane-based chemical lasers & maglev rail guns that require city-sized power plants to operate. Most of these systems have proven not to be effective on the battlefield due to huge energy consumption along with an inherent lack of scalability & mobility for strategic purposes. The Russians have long had these technologies too.

The Russians chose not to go down this path because they already knew these technologies were not scalable. They also didn't have the idiotic huge private war profiteers & military manufactures with minute by minute stocks quotes green-lighting ineffective projects while siphoning away vast fortunes from their military spending. Nor, do the Russians have the 1000X markup-ed paydays for everyone involved leaving them with only maybe 10%-20% true value relative to the Russians for their military expenditures.

During the Maidan, the early days of the war in eastern UK, the securing of Russia's naval base in Sevastopol & the Crimean reunification vote... a pentagon official went live on CNN stating NORAD was tracking a Russian satellite that began to approach/sniff around US military satellites. He somewhat angrily stated that any Russian offensive military action in space violated existing space weapons treaties. lol

i thought China successfully tested this years ago.

Russia is concentrating on asymmetrical advantages... electronic counter measures etc.

I keep forgetting I've got 25 years of direct knowledge on you guys here like with the cold war (I was 26 when it ended)... and a 10-20+ year head start thoroughly researching things I bring forward here.

Russia's has had anti-satellite technologies since the 60's, they invented it. It was deployed during the cold war. This last anti-satellite missile test was a new system.

Don't believe me? The pentagon is saying EXACTLY what i'm saying:

Pentagon: Russia, China closing tech gap in conventional, asymmetric warfare
March 18th, 2016, by usafeaturesmedia



(NationalSecurity.news) The Pentagon is pushing for the rapid development of next-gen weapons because, after decades of U.S. military dominance in planes, ships, and missiles, Russia and China are rapidly narrowing the gap.

As reported by National Defense Magazine, the Pentagon’s top generals and admirals are scheduled to meet in the coming weeks to discuss what the Defense Department needs to do in order to widen the military technology gap with China and Russia. In recent years, both countries have poured more resources into new military technologies that are challenging American military superiority.

here they admit that the gap is narrowing and that China/Russia are focusing on asymmetrical advantages

Those who know, know! Big Grin

First, the title says both conventional 'and' asymmetric warfare. You said Russia's focus is on asymetrical warfare technology which is not true. It's on everything, but geared largely on defensive measures against US/NATO both conventional and not.

Secondly, your usual arguement always relies on American generals claiming technology gaps that aren't there just for more needless dollars to be bled off to everyone in the US government and it's private military industrial complex.

Thirdly, there is only a bit of a technology gap between Russia and the US in 5th gen stealth fighters, though the the US claims have not been proven that the F-22 or F35 (both no longer in production) can defeat Russia's world leading multi-band phased array radar systems, extreme long distance early warning radar & integrated satellite tracking systems. None.

Everything out of the pentagon is their own propaganda reliant on made for TV wars showing their technologivcal dominance vs little league air defenses and airforces. One of the US's most famous military aircraft designers, of 2 of it's most succesfull still in service aircraft... says American stealth is a fallacy vs Russian radar. The evidence also clearly shows that a 60's era Soviet SAM site easily shot a multi-billion dollar-developed US stealth fighter out of the sky in the Balkans. The US lost 10,000 planes & helicopters to Russian designed and manufacturefed anti-aircraft weapons in Vietnam which were current generation Russian weapons for at the time. That same era Russian technology took down an invisible US stealth fighter.

Lastly, if there is a visible gap it would be the US falling behind the Russians in conventional missile systems right across the board, tank technology (by far now 2 generations ahead with Russian Armata world-first tanks with intergrated fifth generation fighter electronics/defensive aerial radar/radar-based reactive explosive armour, SAM capabilities, electronic counter measures, and a lot more any US tank could ever dream of), modernized almost all mobile/non-targetable/nuclear missiles that are ABM defense-evading, areonautic manueverability, undetectable deep sea (10k feet) killer submarine/multi-bathosphere hybrids (US subs @ 1500ft), 400mph self-cavetating torpedoes (US no analogue or defensive answer), mach 5/3500mph ramjet sea-skimming ant-ship missiles (US 500mph).......
