Russia Increases the Nuclear Ante (Revelation 15)

Russia developing 152 mm tank gun and small battlefield nuclear weapons

brian wang | April 12, 2017 |
Russia in considering upgrading future T-14 main battle tnks to use the 2A83 152 mm gun instead of its current 2A82 125 mm gun. The 2A83 gun has a high-speed APFSDS shell with a 1,980 m/s muzzle velocity, only dropping to 1,900 m/s at 2 km.

However, Russian engineers have so far kept the 125 mm-size gun, assessing that improvements in ammunition could be enough to increase effectiveness, while concluding that a larger bore weapon would offer few practical advantage.

Russia is both miniaturizing the nuclear warheads and using sub-kiloton low-yield warheads. Battlefield nuclear weapons could be pared with the larger tank gun.

The 152 mm tank gun could penetrate 1 meter of armor.

For 11 years, China has been testing a 140mm gun on one its Type 98 tanks. The 140mm gun could fire an armor piercing round with twice the penetrating power of one fired from a 120mm gun (about 22 mega joules of energy, versus 11), the amount of ammunition carried was reduced by about a third (to 20-30 rounds, depending on the tank). The 140mm shell was about fifty percent larger than the 120mm one, and could probably knock out an M-1 tank with a frontal shot.

When the Armata (T-14) tank gets the 152mm gun, it will be the most powerful cannon to be mounted on a main battle tank of any country ever.

This severe earthquake affected an area roughly extending along the Atlantic Coast from southern Maine to central Virginia and westward to Cleveland, Ohio. Chimneys were knocked down and walls were cracked in several States, including Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Many towns from Hartford, Connecticut, to West Chester,Pennsylvania.

Property damage was severe at Amityville and Jamaica, New York, where several chimneys were “overturned” and large cracks formed in walls. Two chimneys were thrown down and bricks were shaken from other chimneys at Stratford (Fairfield County), Conn.; water in the Housatonic River was agitated violently. At Bloomfield, N.J., and Chester, Pa., several chimneys were downed and crockery was broken. Chimneys also were damaged at Mount Vernon, N.Y., and Allentown, Easton, and Philadelphia, Pa. Three shocks occurred, the second of which was most violent. This earthquake also was reported felt in Vermont, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Several slight aftershocks were reported on August 11.

Trump’s Response to Korean Threats

Trump on North Korea Threats: We Are Sending an Armada

President Trump said he is taking action after North Korea’s President Kim Jong-un threatened to nuke U.S. war ships.

“We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier,” Trump told the FOX Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo. “We have the best military people on Earth.  And I will say this: he is doing the wrong thing.”

Meanwhile, President Trump spoke with President Xi Jinping of China Wednesday over North Korea concerns. He said he was willing to help the U.S. with North Korea’s weapons program.

During a meeting last week at the White House, Trump and Xi discussed trade relations between China and the U.S. “I said, look, you have a tremendous power because of trading through the border. If they don’t get food, they don’t get, you know, they can’t sell their coal.” In his opinion, “China will do much better on trade if they help us with North Korea.”

Trump also discussed cruise missile strikes against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government in response to a chemical attack against their own people. Trump said Xi was “ok” with it and added that they get along.

“We have two very different countries, two very different peoples. But I think he understood the message and I understood what he was saying to me,” he said.© Fox Business Network President Donald Trump on mounting tensions with North Korea.

Korea Threatens To Nuke Hawaii

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un

Kim Jong-un ‘could unleash a NUCLEAR BOMB on HAWAII’ if Trump aggression continues

NORTH Korea could unleash a nuclear attack on Hawaii that compares to the power of bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War Two, experts have warned.

GETTY

North Korean state media have repeatedly mentioned they will attack if aggression continues

US Pacific Command are worried the island of Oahu is a strategic and symbolic target for Kim Jong-un, as tensions between the countries intensify.Air Force General Lori Robinson, said: “North Korea’s unprecedented level of nuclear testing and ballistic missile development offers a sobering reminder that the US must remain vigilant against rogue nation-states that are able to threaten the homeland.”
The secretive states media warned on Tuesday that it will defend itself against any US aggression.General Vern Miyagi said: “We have to keep a lookout for that (the nuclear threat). That is why we are talking about updating the plan. It’s an awakening. Maybe we should get involved.”
Tensions between North Korea and the US have escalated rapidly after a US Navy strike group was deployed towards the Korean peninsula in a show of military force.White House press secretary Sean Spicer just told a press briefing president Donald Trump has clearly put Pyongyang “on notice”.

The two star general continued: “The bottom line in our plan right now, is close coordination with Pacific Command, the military side, so that we understand what’s happening, and we can prepare for it with what we have, and what we have right now is very thin.”

During the Cold War, the state envisioned moving hundreds of thousands of Oahu residents to the neighbouring islands if things heated up with the Soviet Union.

However, a North Korean ballistic missile could reach Hawaii in under 20 minutes with no warning, experts say.Robinson, who is also the North American Aerospace Defence commander, said 2016 was “one of the North Korea’s most active years in terms of nuclear weapon and missile program development”.
She added that North Korea is “in pursuit of weaponising a nuclear ballistic missile capable of reaching the US”.A foreign ministry statement from the North Korean government on KCNA said: “We will hold the US wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions.
Spicer told the press that the US will not tolerate the actions of North Korea
In 1981, Oahu had hundreds of nuclear fallout shelters, including the Kuhio Building could house 14,375 people. However in the majority of cases the existing shelters are too old and the funding for provisions is non existent.Toby Clairmont, the executive officer of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, said: “Each one of those facilities had to be surveyed for how much concrete density (was present).“And they had to be equipped, so they put medical kits in them, food, sanitary kits, all that kind of stuff.”

Australian Horn To Nuke Up India

Australia-India+Uranium+Deal+Under+Scrutiny+For+'Lack+of+Safeguards'Australian uranium to arrive soon

Turnbull says working closely with India to meet its fuel requirements for civil nuclear programme

Australia will start supplying uranium to India “as soon as possible”, the visiting Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, said here on Monday.

Australia’s promise on uranium was announced even as both countries signed six agreements, including one on countering terrorism.

“Our know-how and resources are already partnering with India’s 24×7 Power For All, Smart Cities and Make in India programmes, but there is room for further growth. We’ve worked closely with India to meet our respective requirements for the provision of fuel for India’s civil nuclear programme, and we look forward to the first export of Australian uranium to India as soon as possible,” Mr. Turnbull said in a press statement at Hyderabad House following bilateral talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Mr. Modi welcomed the passage of the Civil Nuclear Transfers to India Act in the Australian Parliament, opening up opportunities for Australia to support Indian energy generation. Australia has about 40 per cent of the world’s uranium reserves and exports nearly 7,000 tonnes of yellow cake annually. Both sides agreed to extend bilateral engagement to the Asia- Pacific region. In this context, a joint statement issued at the end of the meeting agreed to hold a bilateral maritime exercise named AUSINDEX in the Bay of Bengal in 2018 and also pledged to hold a joint exercise of the Special Forces later this year. Both sides welcomed the decision for the first bilateral Army-to-Army exercise later this year.

The bilateral discussion also hinted at a growing agreement to oppose China’s territorial claims over the South China Sea region.

Chinese presence

As part of the emerging Asia-Pacific focus of India-Australia ties, the joint statement took a firm position against China’s growing presence in the South China Sea region and said, “Both leaders recognised that India and Australia share common interests in ensuring maritime security and the safety of sea lines of communication. Both leaders recognised the importance of freedom of navigation and overflight, unimpeded lawful commerce, as well as resolving maritime disputes by peaceful means.
