U.S. Navy Commander said Washington’s allies should take an example from Russia
WASHINGTON, (BM) – U.S. Navy Commander in Europe Admiral James Foggo said in an interview with Defense Writers Group that Washington’s allies should take an example from Russia to strengthen their defenses, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting Vzglyad.
“With regard to defense potential, as I say to our allies and partners, if you are limited in resources and at the same time want to protect your coast, then think about what Russians are doing with the help of A2 / AD systems (restrictions and prohibitions of access and maneuver) and acquire similar systems. Clever mines. Anti-ship cruise missiles. Coastal radars that will work in conjunction,”– quotes the words of the admiral RIA Novosti.
Recall that in October last year, NATO decided to develop a methodology for conducting military operations in the Russian zone of access restriction.
The A2 / AD systems (restrictions and prohibitions of access and maneuver) in Britain included the S-400 air defense system, the Bastion-P coastal missile system and the Iskander operational-tactical complex, calling these systems “the most dangerous types of Russian weapons”.
A2 / AD – restriction and prohibition of access and maneuver – the concept of deterring the enemy (usually a complex of weapons) by creating an increased danger for the deployment or movement of his forces in a protected area.
