    You are speaking of a US escalation to atomic war against its ennemy. I am speaking of an escalation to atomic war against US : a first nuclear attack against american infrastructures and cities.

    That would not be the US decision, any one with nuclear weapons can attack the USA or any other county any time they make that decision.

    Its the USA Goal to be able to keep 100 drones over hot spots 24/7 inside of five or six years. Drones that are much more advanced and effecive then today with such upgrades such as the Air Force’s Gorgon Stare and new foliage-penetrating radars will mean each future drone does the same work that several ‘bots do today.

    It looks like the U.S.’ next mega-missile is going to be a multipurpose killer. For over a year, the futurists at Darpa have wanted a high-speed missile that can take down a variety of targets in the air and on the ground. Now, they’re read to shell out $21 million for a missile named for the most fearsome cyborg of all.

    Darpa officially announced this week that defense giant Raytheon is going to build its Triple Target Terminator. The T3, as it’s known, is a project for a long-range missile that can destroy cruise missiles, ground air defenses and hostile planes. That’s a bigger deal than it sounds — right now, it takes a whole array of different weapons to handle these missions. A single missile doing ‘em all might save the Pentagon some cash, and it should make the plane carrying these weapons lethal to a wider variety of foes. Darpa wants the missile to launch either from stealth jets, bombers or drones.

    It’s hardly Darpa’s first foray into the missile world. Last year, it issued two contracts to develop a Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile, an effort to take down ships in places where the U.S. Navy can’t easily operate.

    The most recent defense budget included $7 million for Darpa to study production of the T3 missile. As Graham Warwick reported last year for Aviation Week, researchers examined “technologies for propulsion, multi-mode seekers, data links, digital guidance and control and advanced warheads.”

    Not much is known about just what exactly the T3 will ultimately be. Raytheon representatives referred inquiries to Darpa; Darpa hasn’t returned them yet. But the company has until next October 22 to complete its work on the project: time travel doesn’t seem to be a feature of the missile just yet.

    Long range anti-ship missile is already available to China which can shrink easily US Carrier with it.

    I dont see any reliable source that says China has that technology and I doubt it could get through the Aegis defense system

    French Rafale Versus USA Corruption « Some of Patrice Ayme’s Thoughts

    In any case, the Typhoons killed several Raptors during the Red Flag Alaska. On one day a German pilot quipped: “yesterday, we have had a Raptor salad for lunch.”

    Other problems with the Raptor: it chokes its pilots, and its long range missiles do not work when it’s… cold (like it tends to get, up there in the sky). Both problems have been with the plane in the last two years, and it’s supposed to stay close to a base all the time!

    In a dog fight a Typhoons can be equal to an F22, but thats like practice fighting with a Bayonet. Its possible but very unlikely. They have pretty well solved the problem with the air supply. It was a combination of the suit, valve and air filter.

    You are still living in technological dreams... dogfight is more likely than not between forces that are equal technologically, numerically and in skill... and if primarly-BVR force is outnumbered by WVR-capable enemy, it is dead.
