    “The United States has determined that the Russian Federation is in violation of its obligations under the I.N.F. treaty not to possess, produce or flight test a ground launched cruise missile (GLCM) with a range capability of 500 kilometers to 5,500 kilometers or to possess or produce launchers of such missiles,” the report will say, according to the Times. Obama reportedly said in his letter to Putin that he is interested in high-level discussions with the goal of keeping the I.N.F Treaty intact and ensuring the Kremlin can come back into compliance with it. ...

    WASHINGTON: The United States has found that Russia violated a 1987 arms control treaty by testing a ground-launched cruise missile, a senior US official said late Monday. The finding comes in a 2014 report that concluded Russia was in violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which barred it from possessing or producing cruise missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometres, the official told AFP. President Barack Obama has sent a letter to his counterpart Vladimir Putin on the issue, which the official described as a very serious matter. Washington was prepared to discuss the determination with Russia...

    TRIPOLI, Libya — U.S. ships and submarines unleashed a barrage of cruise missiles at Libyan missile storage facilities in the Tripoli area late Monday and early Tuesday, an official said. Later Tuesday, missiles targeted the tightly guarded residence of leader Moammar Gadhafi and military targets in the suburb of Tajura as NATO-led coalition aircraft were seen in the skies. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss U.S. military details, said 22 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from the Mediterranean — the most in at least several days. The latest U.S. barrage raised to well over 200 the...

    A Game-Changing Weapon Ryan MauroThe Russian company Concern Morinformsystem-Agat is marketing a deadly new weapon, one that can allow a rogue state to overcome the technological superiority of Western militaries. The system can even be used to carry out devastating attacks on the U.S. homeland with little means of defense.The system, as seen in its promotional video, allows a weak nation to strike the land and sea targets of a superior force by placing cruise missiles into any type of 40 foot container. The video uses a ship, truck and train as examples of potential launching platforms. This means that...

    North Korea's July missile volley raised legitimate concern about American vulnerability to ballistic missile and cruise missile attack. Hezbollah's rocket barrage of Israel demonstrated that terrorist organizations (non-state actors) can acquire and use missile systems. The next step, for both North Korea and Hezbollah, is adding a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) -- most likely a warhead carrying either nukes or nerve gas. The longer-range rockets Hezbollah used (for example, Russian FROG-7 variants) can be classified as short-range or "battlefield" ballistic missiles. With range exceeding 100 hundred kilometers, these missiles can strike well beyond the frontline. There is good news....

    Some days Bob Bishop works in an office. Some days he straps himself into a 12-foot-long mini-jet, screams across the treetops at nearly 300 mph as paid professional plane killers in military jet fighters try to wax him. "It's like playing a video game," says Bishop, president of Aerial Productions International Inc., which operates out of Marana Regional Airport, 11700 W. Avra Valley Road. His company provides four BeDe 5 mini-jets that pretend to be enemy cruise missiles so U.S. military pilots can practice shooting them down. Bishop says the planes started off in the 1970s as personal commuter planes,...

    A highly classified intelligence report produced for the new director of national intelligence concludes that U.S. spy agencies failed to recognize several key military developments in China in the past decade, The Washington Times has learned. The report was created by several current and former intelligence officials and concludes that U.S. agencies missed more than a dozen Chinese military developments, according to officials familiar with the report. The report blames excessive secrecy on China's part for the failures, but critics say intelligence specialists are to blame for playing down or dismissing evidence of growing Chinese military capabilities.

    Sunday, 28 April, 2002, 16:38 GMT 17:38 UK The Indian authorities say they have successfully tested a supersonic cruise missile developed jointly with Russia.

He said the missile, known as Brahmos, had a range of 300 kilometres and could carry a 200 kilogram conventional warhead. Brahmos can be launched from ships, submarines or aircraft, and can travel at twice the speed of sound. The announcement comes during a tense military standoff between India and Pakistan, with nearly a million troops...
