It is noted that the North Atlantic Alliance and the United States have previously developed the concept of multi-sphere combat operations, implying simultaneously on the ground, in the air, sea, space and cyberspace.
Vladilen Stuchinsky, Doctor of Military Sciences and Mikhail Korolkov, Candidate of Military Sciences, emphasize in the material that NATO plans in this way to simultaneously bombard the enemy with hypersonic, operational-tactical and cruise missiles, as well as to use drones and manned aircraft.
According to experts, in order to disrupt such operations, it is necessary to inflict a “counter or preemptive strike” by the forces of the Aerospace Forces, using all means in a single reconnaissance and strike space in order to damage the enemy at the initial stage of his aggression.
As a specific example of a system that needs to be used, the Dagger hypersonic missiles, which are stuffed with MiG-31K fighters, are mentioned.
