Nancy Pelosi è atterrata a Taiwan
Aggiungo alla notizia un aspetto curioso dal punto di vista aeronautico. Flightradar24 ha comunicato che SPAR19 è stato monitorato da oltre 708.000 persone in tutto il mondo, il che lo rende il volo live più tracciato nella storia di Flightradar24.

Nel pomeriggio per il forte traffico infatti Flightradar24 ha subito forti rallentamenti.

Nel frattempo ... è scoppiata la guerra delle "Fake News" ...
Minutes before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's historic arrival in Taiwan, Chinese state-run media claimed Su-35 fighter jets were crossing the Taiwan Strait, but Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND) quickly labeled this report as false.
At 10:26 p.m. on Wednesday evening, less than 20 minutes before Pelosi's arrival in Taipei, China's CGTN reported that China-operated Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets were crossing the Taiwan Strait, without providing additional information.

Un funzionario del Pentagono afferma che l'Ucraina potrebbe ottenere caccia a reazione occidentali ... ma ci vorrà del tempo ...
The Pentagon announced its latest drawdown package for Ukraine on Aug. 8, valued at $1 billion and mainly comprising munitions for key systems.
But any decision on whether to provide the Ukrainian Air Force with Western combat jets is still to be made, a key Defense Department official told reporters - and it could potentially take “a year to three years” before such jets could be delivered.

Un progetto ... indietro con i tempi :mrgreen: ...
Sierra Nevada Corp., the world’s 54th largest defense contractor in the Defense News annual ranking, will provide the U.K. with high-altitude uncrewed balloons to be used for surveillance and reconnaissance.
The U.S. aerospace company headquartered in Sparks, Nevada, will demonstrate the balloons’ capabilities as part of a U.K. Ministry of Defence’s Project Aether assessment phase contract, according to an Aug. 10 press release from the company (*).
The contract is valued at as much as £100 million (U.S. $121 million) and comes amid similar investments in the technology from U.S. lawmakers.
The U.K. project looks to address the country’s need for communication systems that are rapidly maneuverable for long-duration missions that require minimal resupply or maintenance.
Ayse Caglar, a spokesperson for Sierra Nevada did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Gli Eurofighter della Luftwaffe volano verso l'Indo-Pacifico ...
The German Air Force has sent a fleet of aircraft around the world for its first-ever deployment to the Indo-Pacific region, a move meant to demonstrate its operational capability during two regional exercises and to show solidarity with its allies there.
Six Eurofighter jets - painted with the flags of Germany, Singapore, Australia, South Korea, and Japan - left Neuburg Air Base Monday afternoon followed by four A400M multirole aircraft, and three A330 multirole tanker transport aircraft.
The goal is to reach Singapore within 24 hours, with a pilot change taking place in Abu Dhabi.
Upon arrival in Singapore, the aircraft will be transferred to Darwin, Australia, ahead of the biennial Pitch Black exercise taking place Aug. 19 to Sept. 9.
“We want to demonstrate that we can be in Asia within a day,” said Lt. Gen. Ingo Gerhartz, the air service’s chief of staff.

Contraddizioni turche ...
Russia said on Tuesday it signed a contract to supply Turkey with additional air-defense missiles, but Ankara quickly rejected the claims that a new purchase agreement was inked.
The contract includes local production in Turkey of components of the Russian S-400 missile-defense system, according to Dmitry Shugaev, head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.
Turkey’s defense procurement agency SSB denied that a second purchase agreement had been signed, saying there had been no change in the terms since an initial deal was inked in 2017.
Ankara’s swift denial highlights the evolving nature of its balancing act since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began.
The Turkish government arms Kyiv with deadly drones to help it defend itself against Moscow, but also refrains from joining Western sanctions targeting individuals and state companies in Russia, the single largest source of gas and crude oil for Turkey’s $800 billion economy.

Zaporizhzhia ... la Russia ha detto "Nyet" ...
Russia has rejected calls from the United Nations for a demilitarized zone around Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, which has been occupied by Moscow’s forces since early March and lies in a region of Ukraine that is set to become a new frontline of the war.
Russia’s permanent representative to the body, Vasily Nebenzya, told Interfax on Friday that Moscow must “protect” the Zaporizhzhia plant.
A withdrawal of its troops would make the facility “vulnerable … to provocations and terrorist attacks,” he said.
The UN secretary general, António Guterres, had earlier called for all military personnel and equipment to be pulled out, saying the plant “should not be used as part of any military operations” and a demilitarized zone needed to be agreed to.
Both the United States and France backed Guterres’ appeal.
Rafael Grossi, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said that officials must visit the plant as soon as possible.
“This is a serious hour, a grave hour,” Grossi told the UN security council.

L'Air Force Global Strike Command ha lanciato, per un test di prova, un ICBM Minuteman III ...
Air Force Global Strike Command test-launched an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile Aug. 16, several days after delaying the test to avoid stoking tensions with China.
The launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base, Calif., took place at 12:49 a.m. Pacific time.
The ICBM reentry vehicle traveled approximately 4,200 miles to the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, AFGSC announced in a press release (*).
Airmen from the 625th Strategic Operations Squadron at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., and Sailors from the Navy’s Strategic Communications Wing executed the launch on board a Navy E-6B Mercury aircraft using the Airborne Launch Control System.
Airmen from the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo., and 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., helped support the test launch, while the Space Force’s Col. Bryan Titus, vice commander of Space Launch Delta 30, was the launch decision authority.

JASSM-ER ... lanciato con successo, nello scorso Dicembre, da un B-2 ...
A B-2 bomber successfully released a long-range cruise missile during a weapons test in December 2021, contractor Northrop Grumman revealed Aug. 25, potentially giving the stealth bomber the ability to strike even deeper into contested areas.
The Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range, or JASSM-ER, has a range of more than 500 miles and has been integrated onto the B-1B and B-52 bombers and F-15E and F-16 fighters, according to Pentagon budget documents.
The December test on the B-2, however, marks the first publicly known instance of the Air Force testing the JASSM-ER on a stealth aircraft - there are plans to integrate the missile onto the F-35A as well.
The B-2 has already completed testing with the missile’s shorter-range variant, the JASSM.

Mentre un incrociatore russo lascia il Mediterraneo tallonato da due caccia lanciamissili americani ... la Sesta Flotta si rafforza ...
The sister ship of the Russian guided-missile cruiser sunk by the Ukrainian Navy has left its position in the Mediterranean Sea after six months, USNI News has learned.
RTS Marshal Ustinov (055), sister ship to the former RTS Moskva (121), passed through the Strait of Gibraltar on Thursday after operating in the Mediterranean Sea since early February, according to ship spotters.
Shortly after it passed into the Atlantic two U.S. guided-missile destroyers assigned to the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group, USS Cole (DDG-67) and USS Bainbridge (DDG-96), followed the Russian cruiser two hours after it passed the Rock of Gibraltar, according to photos published by ship spotters.
The cruiser was one of Russia’s primary naval assets in the region and reduces Moscow’s presence closer to Ukraine.
Ustinov, along with the Russian Navy’s two other Slava-class cruisers – the sunken Moskva and RTS Varyag (011) – were sortied from their homeports earlier this year in conjunction with the Russian ground invasion of Ukraine.

I piloti da caccia Ucraini, qualora il loro paese dovesse ricevere degli F-16, si troveranno nella necessità di cambiare sia il loro modo di pensare nonché le rigide abitudini acquisite in decenni di impiego di velivoli sovietici ...
After two decades of this kind of training, the students from former Warsaw Pact countries such as Poland and Romania have changed.
“These young guys … haven’t flown any Russian airplanes,” said Putnam.
“Typically, their English is better, and we run them through to the basic course, and they are, for all intents and purposes, just like the U.S. guys who train alongside them.”
Making the transition from Russian to Western aircraft, however, requires a mind shift.
“It’s not easy,” he said.
“It depends a lot on how long they’ve been trained in the MiGs, because a lot of what comes along with their training is their mindset,” he said.
“They’re into the Soviet system that goes along with those aircraft, which is typically a lot of close control. They don’t make a lot of decisions. They’re not used to being super flexible.”
But in the U.S. Air Force program, pilots must learn to be decision makers.
“They can’t sit up in the airplane and just drive and wait to be told what to do,” Putnam said.
“They have to actively direct their aircraft and think about what it is they’re trying to accomplish.”

Due navi destinate alla difesa contro i missili balistici per il Giappone ... al posto delle previste basi terrestri "Aegis Ashore" ...
Japan’s Ministry of Defence is proposing to build a pair of ballistic missile defense ships – the among largest warships in the Japanese inventory since World War II – government officials said last week.
The Ministry of Defense listed design expenses and engines for the two Aegis BMD ships among 100 items requested that did not have a specific cost at the time of the budget rollout as part of its FY23 budget request.
The Ministry of Defense requested $39.7 billion in spending for the next fiscal year, which exceeds the FY 2022 budget of $38.4 billion.
The two ships would be built instead of the land-based Aegis Ashore installations that the Japanese Self-Defence Force backed away from in 2020 based on risks of missile debris falling to the ground, USNI News reported at the time.

Minuteman III ... secondo lancio di prova in tre settimane ...
Air Force Global Strike Command launched an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile from Vandenberg Space Force Base, Calif., on Sept. 7 - its second test launch in three weeks.
The ICBM launched at 1:13 a.m. Pacific time with three test re-entry vehicles, according to an AFGSC release (*).
The vehicles traveled some 4,200 miles before landing in the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
That’s the same location where the previous test launch, which took place Aug. 16, landed.
This latest launch was overseen by the 576th Flight Test Squadron, stationed at Vandenberg, with support from Airmen from the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo., and 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base, N.D.
Space Force Col. Bryan Titus, vice commander of Space Launch Delta 30, was the launch decision authority.

Lo sviluppo dei sottomarini nucleari deve essere accelerato ... lo afferma un parlamentare australiano in occasione del primo anniversario del patto trilaterale AUKUS ...
An Australian member of parliament wants to speed up the delivery of nuclear-powered submarines to Canberra to send a clear message to China and Russia that Australia will defend its sovereignty against their aggressive ambitions.
Andrew Hastie, speaking at a Hudson Institute event on the anniversary of the historic agreement to build a nuclear-submarine force in Australia and share advanced technology between Canberra, London and Washington, said Australia wants the submarine capability in
“the next decade if not sooner.”
He added that this insistence on building up sovereign defense is a lesson Australia learned from Ukraine’s resistance to Russia’s invasion this year and China’s aggressive moves against Taiwan.
Australia will decide which model of submarine design it will follow – the United States’ Virginia-class attack boats or the United Kingdom’s Astute-class – in the first quarter of 2023.
But that is only one step in the larger agreement, he said.

Secondo l'intelligence britannica la Russia avrebbe spostato i suoi sottomarini classe "Kilo" dalla base di Sebastopoli a quella di Novorossiysk ...
Russia has “almost certainly” moved its Black Sea Fleet Kilo-class submarines from Sevastopol, Crimea, to the Novorossiysk port in Krasnodar Krai, the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense announced in a Tuesday intelligence report.
Russia could have up to four of the diesel-electric attack boats in the Black Sea.
All of the Kilo-class are capable of launching Kalibr NK cruise missiles.
Sea-launched Kalibirs have been used in attacks on Ukraine, a senior military official said during a Monday briefing.
While the United States has seen reports, Pentagon Press Secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder during his Tuesday press briefing was not able to confirm that Russia is moving their submarines.

Il mistero dei gasdotti del Mar Baltico ...
Tra domenica e lunedì si sono verificate grosse perdite di gas dai gasdotti Nord Stream 1 e Nord Stream 2, quelli costruiti per portare il gas russo in Europa.
Le perdite sono state identificate grazie ad alcuni cali di pressione, ma durante la giornata di martedì sono diventate abbastanza evidenti nelle riprese dall’alto di alcuni punti del mar Baltico (sia il gasdotto Nord Stream 1 che il Nord Stream 2 collegano la Russia all’Europa attraverso il mar Baltico).
La causa delle perdite non è stata ancora del tutto chiarita, ma martedì pomeriggio un rappresentante del centro nazionale di sismologia svedese ha detto che nelle zone in cui si sono verificate ci sono state «senza dubbio» due esplosioni, una alle 2.03 nella notte di lunedì e l’altra la sera dello stesso giorno, alle 19.04.
Una delle ipotesi fatte finora – che comunque va presa con estrema cautela, vista la mancanza di prove – è che le perdite siano state il risultato di azioni volute dal regime russo per continuare a usare le proprie forniture di gas come strumento per fare pressioni sui governi occidentali: spingerli cioè ad ammorbidire le proprie posizioni anti-russe sulla guerra in Ucraina.
In serata, durante una conferenza stampa, la prima ministra danese Mette Frederiksen ha dichiarato in modo esplicito che le perdite di gas sono il risultato di un «atto deliberato» e non di un incidente.

SM-6 ... ora anche a terra ...
The U.S. Navy has revealed that it recently demonstrated a road-mobile ground-based launching system for multi-purpose SM-6 missiles at an as-yet undisclosed location in Europe.
The containerized launcher module, in this case loaded onto a tractor-trailer, is all but certainly the same type, or a variant thereof, as the one that was installed on the unmanned test ship Ranger for a live-fire test last year.
This launcher system is also set to be a component of the U.S. Army's future Typhon system, which is expected to be able to fire SM-6s, as well as Tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles.
Photographs of what the Navy described as a "modular SM-6 launcher system" appeared on official social media accounts belonging to the service's Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. Sixth Fleet (NAVFOREUR-AF/Sixth Fleet) earlier today.
"U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. Sixth Fleet personnel conducted convoy protection rehearsals with a U.S. Navy modular SM-6 launcher system within the U.S. European Command (EUCOM) area of responsibility on Sunday," according to the post on NAVFOREUR-AF/Sixth Fleet's Facebook page.
"This U.S. Navy capability enables rapid defense of the maritime domain."

Ucraina ... i Russi sarebbero sulla difensiva ...
The Pentagon’s international affairs chief said Monday that Russia’s new losses in the strategic southern Kherson region are about to spiral into a “major defeat” that would give Ukraine a defensive position amid “hot fighting” expected this winter.
After news that Ukrainian forces broke through Moscow’s defenses in Kherson, which Moscow saw as the gateway to Odessa, Assistant Defense Secretary for International Security Affairs Celeste Wallander said the Ukrainians were on the verge of pushing back the main Russian bridgehead across the Dnipro River.
“That would be a major defeat for Russia because it pushes back even more Russia’s ambition to take Odessa, which was one of the stated objectives earlier this year,” Wallander said at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event.
defensenews.comRussian forces poised for ‘major defeat’ in Kherson, says DoD official

Però ...
The U.S. assesses that Ukraine’s battlefield gains on the eastern and southern fronts over the past three days are strategically important, but Kyiv is still far from a decisive victory, according to U.S. officials.
In the east, Kyiv’s forces over the weekend captured the city of Lyman, a strategic railway hub, and continued to push east into the Donetsk region.
In the south, Ukrainian soldiers broke through Moscow’s defensive lines in the Kherson region, gateway to the port city of Odesa.
--- --- ---
But current officials cautioned that Kyiv’s most recent gains should not be overstated, and that Russian forces are holding steady in other areas such as nearby Bakhmut, in the Donetsk.
In the north, Russian forces are shelling the town of Kupiansk, which Ukraine continues to defend ...

Belgorod !!!
A Russian Navy submarine that carries bus-sized nuclear torpedoes was spotted in the Arctic after sparking headlines earlier this week over fears of a nuclear weapons test, according to new photos published on Wednesday.
Project 09852 Belgorod was spotted on the surface operating in the Barents Sea, on Sept. 22 and Sept. 27, near the Kola Peninsula ...
On Monday, Italian newspaper La Repub(b)lica reported that military officials in Europe had warned that the submarine had traveled to the Kara Sea to test its Poseidon torpedoes.
Pentagon officials did not provide any specific information on Belgorod’s movement when contacted by USNI News earlier this week.
However, a defense official played down the submarine’s recent operations in general.
