The American edition of The National Interest writes about the secret project. Assault Breaker II Project, according to the author of the magazine, rarely covered in public space. But not so long ago, the conversation about him turned on an online speech by Terence Emmert, the US Deputy Secretary of Defense for Research and Development..
Breaker II represents a very promising solution to the challenges of our strategic competition,
– Emmert stressed.
Another scrappy information about the secret project of the US Armed Forces Assault Breaker II was announced by Stephen Walker at a briefing of the US Congress in 2019 year. Walker was head of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency at the time. (DARPA), therefore his words deserve attention.
The official described the project as a set of "new combat operational structures, based on the latest technologies and capabilities ". As you can see - again flattering characteristics, but almost no specifics. What are we talking about?
Kim Lizer of The Drive writes, that the history of the project called Assault Breaker began in the distant 1970s. Now the old program has received a new breath due to the possible use of the latest technologies in its implementation.. DARPA describes the project as the integration of multiple technologies and tools, including lasers, electro-optical sensors, microelectronics, radar.
Firstly, among these integrated systems and technologies, one can note the Joint Radar System for Observing JSTARS Targets, which integrates PGM with advanced intelligence systems, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), developed with the support of DARPA.
Besides, these are unmanned aerial vehicles Global Hawk; guided munitions air-to-ground missiles; army missile system (ATMS) long range, able to work at any time of the day; ammunition Brilliant Anti-armor Tank (BAT), acoustic sensors which are designed to detect and aim at targets, for example - on enemy armored vehicles.
As Kim Leeser notes, The Pentagon is very concerned about potential threats from the Russian and Chinese armed forces, which makes him pay more attention to the development of new technologies to counter foreign attacks.
Defense Science Council report for 2017 the year Assault Breaker II is called a means for inflicting a disarming blow on the enemy. Ships can be potential targets, tanks, air defense equipment, headquarters and warehouses of the armed forces of a potential enemy.
However, Kim Lieser emphasizes, that Russia and China can bypass Assault Breaker II. They can simply increase the number of forces used in armed conflict., which will require only certain financial costs and no more.
In this way, even the Americans themselves are ambiguous in assessing a promising project: then it is presented as an absolutely reliable weapon of counteraction, it turns out, that in general, the efforts of the American military are in vain, since Moscow or Beijing, if desired, will find an opportunity to neutralize Assault Breaker II.
