My Inauguration Gift To Barack Obama

My Inauguration Gift To Barack Obama

We are on the Eve of the Inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States of America. As an historian, I am both fascinated and proud of the fact that we will be placing a mixed race black man in the White House. As a political scientist, I could care less about his skin color, his background, his religion, his sex, his race, etc.; what I do care about is what will he do with his power.

I read more than the average bear - sorry about that - I read more than the average well-read person. I am familiar with most theories of politics, history, the economy, and that type of thing. Yet, I still do not know how the man Barack Obama will act during his presidency.

He can continue the failed NeoCon strategy and take us to a most dangerous place in history as we attack an Iran well prepared for asymmetrical warfare against the American population with advanced biowar. He can continue the policies of total economic destruction of our great nation. Or, he can help us all have more years of prosperity and a more peaceful future.

Since I cannot tell what Mr. Obama will do with the great power that will be draped on him this Tuesday, I elect to give the man, and those behind the throne, some benefit of the doubt.

God does work in strange ways. I am a former antiwar activist from the Vietnam War era. Yet, I have a gift in conceptualizing advanced warfare and in theoretical weaponry strategy and design. I have worked with three advanced aerospace companies with leading edge aviation designs, over the last 21 years. One of the things that I do, when I am not writing this blog and some articles, is consult. To tell CEOs of leading edge aerospace firms how to utilize their breakthrough technology to change the world we live in. Trouble is, it usually involves death and destruction on a massive scale, that is it involves 21st Century leading-edge military technology and strategy.

Over a year ago, I took another look at Jay Carter's CarterCopter and at where his design team was headed. I was truly impressed. These guys, operating on a tight budget, have taken American aerospace ingenuity to a new higher level. They have a compound gyrocopter/gyroplane/aircraft that has very long range, can take off and land vertically (VTOL), are all-composite/whole-airframe designs that can be mass produced. The CarterCopter has been flying for about three years as a proof-of-concept five-seat aircraft. A new improved four-seat version is almost totally complete and plans exist for a family of different-sized CarterCopters. The largest will be a 767 sized aircraft capable of airlifting a main battle tank (or two Stryker armored fighting vehicles or 200+ armed/equipped troops) thousands of miles and setting them down on a far-away foreign battlefield and/or re-supply deployed ground forces - all without the usage of airfields.

OK, so what does this have to do with an inauguration gift to Barack Obama?

My gift is the release of the GLOBAL REACH WARFARE Concept. I gave General Jones (Obams's National Security Adviser) a brief heads up a little while back. But now I am releasing the Concept to the American public and your Administration at large. If used properly, it can maintain America as the world's sole superpower and let us power down on some defense expenditures (even as we expand out capabilities). Mr. President, if you misuse the Concept, it will increase the rate of our fall as a great nation. You are the one that got elected, I just hope and pray that you will make the right choice.

Global Reach Warfare technology will give America a warfighting capability that no other nation, or group of nations, will have for many years to come. The ability to move a massive army (with extensive close air support, air cover, and full logistics supply chain) anywhere on earth in 48 hours. A hyper-mobile army that would have an organic level of firepower greater than any non-nuclear force before it in human history.

Such a GRW force could actually allow for long term reduction in American defense expendatures as many foreign bases are closed. Such a force, could be used for desaster reflief on a truly massive scale. Such a force, could allow America to quickly replace rogue or insane leaders under UN mandates. Helping to restore the image of American military power being used for good moral reasons.

Global Reach Warfare

In the 1930s an obscure French Army colonel, Col. Charles De Gaulle, began writing and lecturing on where advances in technology were taking the art and science of warfare. He foresaw that improvements in aircraft, ground transportation, armored warfare, radio telecommunications, and related technologies would dictate that the next major war, what became World War II, would be fought very differently than World War I. He conceptualized maneuver warfare.

The French High Command, as well as the French Government, was locked into static defense with massive amounts being spent to build and maintain/staff the Maginot Line. Col. De Gaulle was largely ignored by most of the senior political and military leadership; however the German High Command took his theories very seriously. His contemporaries, in accepting that the nature of warfare had changed included Britain’s J.F.C. Fuller, Germany’s Heinz Guderian, America’s Dwight D. Eisenhower and George S. Paton, Poland’s Wladyslaw Sikorski, and Russia’s Mikhail Tukhachevsky.

De Gaulle’s books included ‘Vers l’armee de matier’ (‘The Army of the Future’), 1934 and ‘La France et son armee’ (‘France and Her Army’), 1938. The Germans built the concept of Lighting War, or Blitzkrieg, partially on De Gaulle’s theories, and used these concepts of modern warfare to sweep across Europe faster than any military force in history in the early days of the Second World War. Eventually, Allied Forces, fighting a modern maneuver war with both strategic and tactical massive air support totally destroyed the German Armed Forces (and De Gaulle became the leader of the Free French and later President of France).

Following the early French defeat in World War II and other events, military leaders have accepted and embraced the need to adapt to changing technology as a basic necessity.

The CarterCopters family of VTOL all-composite aircraft will take the world, and the American Armed Forces, into the next major generational change in the nature of the art and science of war. While there have been massive changes in technology and warfare since the end of World War II, and the introduction of nuclear warfare, there has not been a generational change; rather there has been an on-going evolutionary change. The long range near-stealth VTOL capabilities of the CarterCopter family of aircraft will allow the American Armed Forces to deploy troops and equipment anywhere, quickly and with sufficient firepower and mobility to engage and destroy all enemies. Equipment carried can include heavy items up to and including the M1A2 Abrams MBT. This capability, in and of itself, is a profound change for it allows combat forces to deploy with heavy equipment anywhere on Earth and to do so using reduced signature technology. But the real story of the changes that the CarterCopter technology makes is far, far more important and profound in scope.

General De Gaulle, and others, saw that the changes that technology and transportation were making were much greater than the sum total of their individual impact. The changes of the time allowed for, and in fact compelled, a major new generational change in the art and science of war. The CarterCopter family of aircraft will do the same in the early 21st Century.

The CarterCopter family is based on all-composite/whole airframe technology. This all-composite technology has many positive attributes, among which is the ability to be manufactured using low-cost mass production techniques. This allows the United States to build out, and build out quickly, an air-land force with very large World War levels. While also allowing this same air-land force to have a global range with self-deployment, with a almost unbelievable level of ground forces maneuver warfare based on a level of air mobility that has never been attempted before.

GRW, that is Global Reach Warfare concept, will allow for the movement into combat, from anywhere on Earth with short notice and self-deployment, the combat elements of a highly armed Army-level force of two Corps. The first Corps would likely have three US Army divisions (which could include armored divisions); the second Corps would likely include two USMC divisions. The entire GRW air element would have reduced signature (radar, IR, visual) and have a massive organic ground attack capability. Most importantly, it would have its own air mobile logistics supply chain.

The ability to project a well armed ground fighting force anywhere on Earth with strong organic weapons systems and self-deployment, with the size of the force ranging from the combat elements of a Brigade to a Army-level force of five divisions will greatly complicate the war plans of any potential enemy. American forces could literally set down on the outskirts of the enemy nation’s capital city or any key strategic target and do so using reduced signature aircraft. This eliminates all the traditional problems associated with driving across enemy territory after first engaging in a protracted build up of ground forces in the area. Further, that American Global Reach Warfare (GRW) force could engage in maneuver warfare using the GRW air mobility and close air support assets; fire and movement that could encompass very large land masses ~ fire and movement laterally and in great depth across the width of any sizeable enemy’s territory.

A GRW division sized force would utilize approximately 2,400 CGT-150s, 100 CGT-100s, 500 CG-45s (the military variants of the 6-9 place BAV), and 300 CG-34s (the military variants of the PAV 2+2). All military CarterCopter variants would have mid-air refueling capabilities (using the “probe and drogue” system instead of the usual USAF “flying boom” system due to the rotor) and would have low radar cross section, low IR signature, reduced acoustic signature, with adoptive optical camouflage. (The first few CGT-24s and CGT-36s might not have the reduced signature option.)

The 2,400 CGT-150s would primarily be utilized as utility transports but would have limited self-defense with two AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles (carried internally). Some CGT-150s would be the CGT-150R model and have “probe and drogue” based refueling equipment. A limited number (50 per division) of CGT-150s would be the Fire Storm variant, the CGT-150FS. This variant would carry and launch a large number of FAE (fuel-air explosive) armed air-to-ground missiles with GPS terminal guidance and interlinked grid coordinated targeting. This would allow the CGT-150FS variant to carry/launch approximately 250 missiles (in the 550 pound range). Each FAE armed missile would hit a target zone that would be part of a larger grid that could be interlinked with other CGT-150FS target grids to allow a massive footprint/high PSI level blast or series of blasts over the target area. Tactical nuclear level damage could occur without crossing the nuclear threshold.

The GRW division’s 100 CGT-100s would be mainly utility transport aircraft with a number of specialized variants possible such as air ambulance, EW, AEW/C3, etc. The CGT-150s and CGT-100s would be USAF aircraft with the possible exception of some limited numbers of USMC aircraft for Harrier and F-35STOVL in-field support. If the USAF were to elect to use some F-35STOVL variants for GRW global support, then additional CGT-100s/CGT-150s would be used by the USAF.

The 500 CG-45 models would include utility variants as well as specialized aircraft. The specialized models would include the two-place CG-45FB Firebird with a four-barrel 25mm Gatling gun-style rotary cannon, the light weight GAU-22/A developed for the F-35. The Firebird would also carry two AGM-114 Hellfire II missiles or the new Joint Common Missile (JCM), and could carry AIM-9 Sidewinders or the ATAL air-to-air missile, or Hydra Rockets. Approximately 450 of the 500 divisional CG-45s would be the Firebird variant.

The 300 divisional CG-34s would include 250 Scout/Light Attack variants, the CG-34S/LA model. This normally single seat aircraft would have similar weapons systems/loads compared to the Kiowa Warrior version of the OH-58D. These could include a GECAL .50 cal. Gatling-gun, the GAU-19/A; the ATAL air-to-air missile (an upgraded air-to-air Stinger) would be carried on some of the CG-34S/LA aircraft; one or two Hellfire anti-tank missiles; several 2.75” (70mm) Hydra-70 rockets.

The use of large numbers of armed VTOL stealth CarterCopters of various sizes with a heavy firepower to weight mix allows the GRW force, be it brigade/division/corps or Army-level size, to dramatically increase its offensive mobile firepower.

The CGT-150FSs, the CG-45FBs, and the CG-34S/LA models (and all CarterCopter military variants) would be self deployable and re-supplied via the same VTOL logistics chain as the traditional ground based assets of the GRW force. The logistics chain would include a fleet of CGT-150 utility aircraft ferrying in combat expendables (fuel, missile/rocket rounds, ammo, MRE, etc.) and would use TRAs (temporary re-supply areas) for re-fueling, re-supply, medical treatment, crew rest, etc. A TRA could be quickly established in an open field and just as quickly de-established and moved to another site. This can be very important if fighting an enemy with advanced conventional weapon systems and/or WMD. At 7:00 a.m. a given area is a wheat field (or desert/etc.); at 8:00 a.m. it is a very busy VTOL airbase (re-supply can include traditional low-level air-drops from USAF strategic airlift aircraft); at 1:00 p.m. the field is vacant. While such hyper mobility of a TRA would not normally be necessary, in some operational environments it could be very useful.

TRAs could be used for in-field re-supply of ground forces and/or for highly mobile air attack assets (CGT-150FSs, CG-45FBs, CG-34S/LAs, Harrier and F-35 STOVL aircraft, and any traditional attack or utility helicopters being employed).

In addition to the usage of CarterCopters in the GRW force, the CG-34A, CG-34S/LA, CG-45A, and CG-45FB could be utilized throughout the US Army and USMC and mass production prices would make the aircraft very attractive. The CG-34A and CG-45A could be used by all four main services as utility transports; the Coast Guard might have an interest in the CHT models.

While this brief paper is not the place to cover the full range of military uses for the CarterCopter family of revolutionary aircraft there are two additional variants that should be mentioned. The CHT-150 could be used by the United State Navy as a Flying Frigate variant, the CHT-150FF. This model would have advanced radar, carry long and short range air-to-air missiles, ASW equipment including torpedoes, and anti-shipping missiles, and air-launched ground-attack cruise missiles, as well as two GAU-22/A cannons. The CHT-150FF could be used to increase offensive and defensive firepower for naval surface units and to increase the ASW defenses of USN supercarrier task forces ~ especially useful against the deadly Russian underwater rocket, the VA-111 Shkval (Squall) with its underwater speed of 360 kph (230 mph).

Additionally the CH-45 model could be used as a flying point defense system, the CH-45FPD variant. The CH-45FPD could be used to increase the defensive firepower of USN supercarrier task forces against the latest Russian anti-shipping missiles, the 3M82 Moskit sea-skimming missile (NATO code name SS-N-22 Sunburn) and the even more lethal P-800 Oniks (also named Yakhents; NATO code name SS-N-26 Onyx). Both are designed to kill our supercarriers by getting past the cruiser/destroyer screen and the USN point-defense Phalanx system by using high supersonic speeds, violent end maneuvers, and swarm attacks. The CH-45FPD variant would be a two person aircraft and would utilize one or two light weight 25mm or 20mm Gatling-gun type rotary cannons with a good load of ammo. A number of such aircraft, on the order of 30 or more at a time, could be used in high threat areas for relatively short periods to increase the defensive firepower around the carrier task force and to widen the task force defensive cone against sea-skimming missiles.

The long range and mid-air refueling capabilities of the CH-45FPD and the CHT-150FF would allow land based deployment over significant distances; the VTOL capabilities would allow the aircraft to use navy carriers and other ships for refueling.

Rough cost estimates for the various CarterCopter aircraft in a GRW division is as follows:

2,400 CGT-150 @ $30m each in mass production $72 billion

100 CGT-100 @ $15m each in mass production $1.5 billion

500 CG-45 @ $6m each in mass production $3 billion

300 CG-34 @ $600k each in mass production $180 m

Total division level cost (including USAF aircraft) $76.68 b

Total Global Reach Warfare Army-level force (5 divisions) $383.4 b

(Plus: weapon systems; specialized electronics, etc.)

Special Comments

Pitched battles as Israeli tanks rumble deeper into Gaza cities ~ link ~ Something is not right with the very low death and injury figures being reported by the Israeli armed forces (IDF). If the IDF is really battling armed forces, not just little more than civilians armed with AK-47 rifles, there should be much higher numbers of Israeli troops killed and wounded. Either the Israeli Government is keeping the truth of much higher casualties from its citizens, or they are "fighting" mostly unarmed civilians.
