Finally there is something that has occurred, in which I am actually an expert and qualified to give a real answer about.
am a retired U.S. Navy FireControl Technician, who is platform
certified in the gun and missile systems on board Adams class guided
missile destroyers, I have also worked with the Navy's Harpoon, Tomahawk
and ASROC missile systems. (FireControl Techs operate, maintain and
repair the computer, radar and periphial systems used to launch and
guide the various naval weapon systems, we are the guys who "PUSH THE
Anyway, what I saw in the recent video concerning the
object 30 miles off the coast of CA. Is blatently a foreign made, Large
Cruise or ICBM missile, being launched by a sub-surface aquatic
platform. First I know its a large missile because it did not exhibit
the typical "corkscrewing"
trajectory of a beam riding missile as it trys to aquire the targeting
beam. This tells me its a Big Boy with a complete guidence system
installed in it, what is nicknamed a "fire and forget" missile, as once
its launched its internal guidance system takes over and there is no
real need for external guidance.
Secondly, I'm fairly confident
its not one of ours, as the vapor trail appears "dirty" it looks
brownish. I have personally been involved in (5) SM2 missile launches,
and (2) ASROC missile launches, and have been on safety observation for
at least 15 more launches of Harpoons, Tomahawks and other missiles. We
put alot of sweat and money into our "birds" and part of that is the
fuel cells, they burn very clean, a whitish-blue infact, not a dirty
blackish brown. That missile had rather crude fuel cells, which tells me
its not one of ours.
I bet the brass in Washington is freaked
out big time, because of what I know of our
"defenses" they should really have had a pretty good idea this thing
was sitting there, and they should have been watching it, not only that
the moment it broke the surface of the water and ignited our early
warning dopplar should have picked it up, and relayed the info to NORAD,
and the CAP units flying patrol over the country...
ranking expert who believes this is a condensation trail off of a
commercial airliner is lying or stupid. I hope you hear from other Fire
Control Techs who saw the same thing I did!
I forgot something,
as any Firecontrol Tech or Gunnersmate will verify, the protocals to
launch a missile are so complex, there is no way this was an
"accidental" launch. I do not want to share too much info, but there is
no "one red button" to launch a missile, thats all hollywood B.S. Yes
two keys are turned to arm the system, but it takes at least three other
things to occur in proper sequence to launch a bird,
so thats at least 5 people all doing something at the right time. Its
impossible to accidently lauch a missile! FC2- ANDREW/ RET
