It is planned that the latest US missile defense interceptors will be deployed in Poland.

The United States begins mass production of its latest missile defense interceptor system, the SM-3 Block IIA. This was announced on Monday by the Director of the US Department of Defense ABM Agency Vice Admiral Navy John Hill.





“Last week, I was encouraged that we decided on the initial production of the SM-3 Block IIA. We are moving towards serial production of these missiles,” the US military commander said at a seminar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

“They are needed for the Aegis Ashore (missile defense system). And if they have the potential to neutralize longer-range threats, it’s better. Field commanders will get more tools for defense in defense against ballistic missiles,” Hill said.

The SM-3 Block IIA interceptors are manufactured by Raytheon, one of the largest corporations in the US military-industrial complex. According to her, these interceptors will become a central element of the European component of the US missile defense system. It is planned that they will be deployed in Poland.

It was previously reported that the United States tested a new missile in the Pacific. The missile is designed using stealth technology and can change course in flight.

Recall that the United States conducted another successful test launch of the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. The unarmed missile warhead flew 6.76 thousand kilometers and hit a target at a training ground near the Kwajalein Atoll in the central Pacific Ocean.
