10 Most Powerful Weapons of America

10 Most Powerful Weapons of America

The U.S. military is clearly the most sophisticated,
most advanced and most powerful force on the planet for a very simple reason – having the
best weapons. But what are top of these weapon systems America
has? AH-64 Apache is an American four-blade twin-turbo
attack helicopter. It features a nose-mounted sensor suited for
target acquisition and night vision systems. Equipped with a 30-millimeter cannon, Hellfire
missiles and sophisticated sensors, the Apache combines speed, firepower and range that allows
the Army to strike enemies long before they come within firing distance. It is equally useful at hunting down insurgents
or destroying enemy armored columns in every kind of warfare. Named after the legendary World War II admiral,
the Arleigh Burke class destroyers are some of the most balanced, capable ships fielded
by any modern navy. The heart of the Burke’s combat systems
is in its Aegis radar system, which is capable of directing a variety of air defense missiles
against incoming targets. The destroyers are heavily armed with conventional
guns. 127-millimeter gun is mounted on the bow capable
of anti-ship, shore bombardment and even a limited anti-air role. These destroyers are armed with Two 25 mm
guns and 4 caliber machine guns. Finally, each ship has two Phalanx close-in
weapon systems designed to shoot down incoming missiles, but also capable of firing on helicopters,
drones and small boats. This Incredible looking having Star War’s
appearance the $4.4 Billion destroyer is already out there roaming the world’s oceans. You might miss it though, as the ship is designed
to be almost invisible. The destroyer’s RCS is not more than a fishing
boat despite having a whopping length of 600-feet. The ship is armed with two long-range guns
that fire guided artillery shells up to 72 miles away. The destroyer is also equipped with two small guns
to protect it from ships or airborne enemies that get too close. The ship will also be equipped with a science
fiction style rail gun and laser weapons. These array of advance weaponry and stealth
make this ship one of the most lethal destroyers in the world. F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat,
single-engine and all-weather stealth multirole fighters. This fifth generation combat aircraft is designed
to perform ground attacks, aerial reconnaissance and air defense missions. The F-35 has three variants including vertical
takeoff like a helicopter. They are equipped with laser guided missiles
and bombs and will secretly blitz enemy bases into dust. The United States plans to buy more than 2500
of these aircraft. M1 Abrams is an American third-generation
main battle tank. Highly mobile, designed for modern ground
warfare, the M1A1 is considered one of the best protected tanks in the world. Notable features include the use of a powerful
multi fuel turbine engine, the adoption of sophisticated composite armor and separate
ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment for crew safety. At a whopping weight of 62 tons, it is one
of the heaviest main battle tanks in service. Three main versions of the Abrams have
been deployed since its inception namely, M1, M1A1 and M1A2 – incorporating improved
armaments, protection and electronics. These improvements and other upgrades have
allowed this long-serving vehicle to remain in front-line for many years. In addition, development for the improved
M1A3 version has been known since 2009. The strategic nuclear deterrence has become
less prominent since the end of the Cold War. The backbone of America’s nuclear deterrence
remains the 1960s intercontinental ballistic missile Minuteman III. Over the years, the long-serving missile has
been modified and upgraded with better guidance systems and new rocket motors. Though originally designed to be fitted with
three multiple independent reentry vehicles, The current version of the missile carries
300-kiloton weapons. The United States plans to continue to upgrade
that missile, but eventually will have to develop a new ICBM to replace the Minute man
III. There are three major types of submarines
in the US Navy: ballistic missile, attack and cruise missile submarines. All these subs in the U.S. Navy are nuclear-powered. Ballistic subs have a single strategic mission
of carrying nuclear ballistic missiles. Attack submarines have several tactical missions,
including sinking enemies’ ships and subs, launching cruise missiles, and gathering intelligence. Ohio class guided-missile submarines are one
of the most feared subs in the world. These submarines are equipped with 154 cruise
missiles and can carry up to four platoons of Navy SEALs. The Los Angeles, Sea-wolf and Virginia class
submarines are capable of performing seek-and-destroy missions, surveillance, reconnaissance, irregular
warfare, covert troops insertion, mine and anti-mine operations. In addition, these subs are armed with Tomahawk
cruise missiles as well. The Air Force tiny fleet of twenty B-2
bombers is the only stealth long-range strike asset in the US arsenal. No other aircraft has the range to take off
from the continental United States and strike at targets on the other side of the globe
inside highly contested airspace. The B-2 has unrefueled range of around 6000
nautical miles, but that can be extended up to 10,000 with aerial refueling. There is no other warplane in the US Air Force
inventory, which is capable to penetrate the kinds of dense air defenses. At a whopping $2 billion price tag, this aircraft
is the top most expensive aircraft jets in world. The Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor is arguably
the best stealth fighter jet in existence. The F-22 is extremely stealthy and fitted
with advanced avionics. Further it can cruise at supersonic speeds
greater than Mach 2.25 at altitudes up to 60,000 ft for extended periods. When operating at lower speeds and altitudes,
it has the ability to vector thrust from its engines-which gives it tremendous maneuverability. In short, the Raptor’s combination of sheer
speed, altitude, stealth and powerful sensors make it a lethal killer in the sky. The U.S. Navy has the world’s largest aircraft
carrier fleet, with 24 in service, 2 under construction, 2 ordered and 15 planed. Largest and latest of these warships is Ford
class super carrier. Ford class can carry an air wing that includes
85 fixed-wing aircraft, naval helicopters and drones. These include F-35, FA-18 Super Hornet, EA-18
Growlers and Hawkeye early warning aircraft. Defensive weapons of the Ford class include
two launchers with 32 Sea Sparrow Missiles. It has also 21 Rolling Airframe Missiles which
are used against anti-ship missiles at close range. Moreover there are four 20 mm Phalanx close-in
weapon systems. The ford class has the largest and most powerful
air force than the whole air force of many nations. By operating these aircraft carriers United
States will remain unchallenged sea force on earth throughout the 21st century. So what do you think that which weapon system

  1. Great video. I'd keep in mind these are the OVERT most powerful weapons.
    it's the adversary or threat unseen, unknown that is often the most dangerous, effective.

    Think about ALL those space 'exploration' missions. You think… now, that even one might have had a doomsday type weapon, waiting for a signal to retrofire back here?

    Think what you wish.

    Maybe i think too much…lol.

  2. Good video my man!! I woulda personally put them in a different order but can’t argue with your choices, and I def enjoyed the whole video!
