The Nature of Space Wars
The reasons for conflicts between different branches of Great Race,
as a rule, are opaque. For example, attack on the United Nations on January, 9,
2622, by Concordian forces is explained in two ways: as the preventive impact
and as the good tendency to bring the light of Zoroastrianism into the "lands
of aners and drujwants".
From its side, the United Nations officially deny any war builds
up against Concordia, although actually they clearly occurred. Like is sufficiently
obvious and the economic motive of probable attack UN: the luxogenium fields of
the Concordian colony of Parkida. However, it is possible to assume that luxogenium
was seen by the pleasant, but not main prize of the cancelled intrusion...
Other armed conflicts during 23-27th centuries were caused by the
separatists' aspirations of some colonies, although this did not lead to the serious
wars. But by the reason for conflicts and separate skirmishes with badly studied,
but highly technologically improved extraterrestrials always caused by the impossibility
to establish two-sided communication and, as a result, the complete incomprehension
of sides. Examples: Jips race, Jagnoo race.
When it was possible to rapidly determine the physical principles
of communication and to decipher the nucleus of ksenoyazyka, conflicts did not
appear. Examples: Chorugian race, RK -27 race, RK -31 race, etc.
Basics of Strategy
Battles on Pacific Ocean 1941-1945 between American and Japan navy
fleets are the nearest strategic analog of star wars.
The basis of armed forces are powerful space fleets, capable of
accomplishing swift thrusts from one stellar system to another. The nucleus of
fleets compose the heavily armored battleships, aircraft carriers (up to 100 fluggers
each) and frigates – universal combat starships of average sizes.
All these ships and fluggers (aerospace aircrafts) being been based
on them are intended:
– first, for the destruction to themselves of the similar;
– secondly – for the suppression of enemy space defense;
– and, thirdly, for guaranteeing the general supremacy in the limits
of planetary system, which makes it possible to pass to the main thing: to the
massive landing operation and direct occupation of enemy territory.
For the delivery of troops and their landing to the planets are
intended several types of the specialized ships, and also the wide spectrum of
Finally, assault troops themselves are divided into the the armored
assault troops (tanks etc.), the light assault troops (so-called "mobile
infantry"), fire support (ordinary, laser and plasma artillery, missile complexes,
the means of anti-space defense) and special (diversionary and reconnaissance
units – 'osnaz', military engineers, etc.).
The world of "Tomorrow War" trilogy by A.Zorich is
sustained in the retro style. Therefore there is no doubtful exotic weapons in
it. That's why large starships do not incinerate each other with the aid of any
there "phusers", "masers" and other phonetic imitations to
magic word "laser". Yes, lasers exist – X-ray and optical both – but
they so they are called: lasers, laser guns. Moreover – and this corresponds to
normal physicotechnical ideas – to create super-power lasers, capable of causing
heavy damage to large starships, are simply unprofitable. But as the means of
antimissile defense laser guns are used widely as the combat means with fluggers.
But starships are attacked and are destroyed by others, where by the more profitable
and more effective types of the weapon: by rockets, by the torpedoes (so they
are called very large antiship missiles) and... by big shells!
The battleships of future be armed with old good tube artillery,
whose caliber reaches 900 mm. the projectiles, stuffed silumitom – by moshchneyshim
explosive – they are detonated with the aid of the combination of two physical
principles. First, the powerful charge of liquid powder is undermined, and, in
the second place, to the windings of stem will be given the strongest electric
current, which generates the electromagnetic field, which dorazgonyaet projectile
to the cosmic velocities.
Also there are plasma accelerators – sufficiently capricious and
not not very long-range. In the essence – such super-power flamethrowers, which
spit not by the jet of fire, but by the charge of stable plasma.
Finally, in arsenal are the small-caliber automatic guns, which
shoot the usual projectiles (TTP, solid-state guns). They are sufficiently widely
used by fluggerami for dealing with the ground-based and low-maneuverable space

Means of Protection
Large ships are protected by armor, in which are combined both the
metallic elements and the layers of different synthetic materials – including
of "clever", capable of independently patching small hole and of restoring
thus the airtightness of section. Complex fire-prevention protection is provided
aboard good ships. For example, on the aircraft carriers of the United Nations
is a system of the replacement of the usual nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere pyro-depressornoy
– on the basis of carbonate or heavy inert gases (xenon, krypton). Before the
battle the crews of aircraft carriers change clothes into the fireproof pressure
garment assemblies with the autonomous air supply, after which it is possible
to boldly force into the internal accomodations of ship carbonic acid or krypton.
The generators of power pour on, "it is shield", also
have the starships – they protect from the combat lasers and others it is specific
energy weapon, and it is equal also from the natural corpuscular radiation of
stars. (this emission, as must be known to amateurs NF, is one of the most serious
dangers for the crews of the contemporary automatic spacecraft, deprived of the
protection of natural earth's magnetic field. In particular, the protection of
crew of ship from corpuscular radiation of the sun acknowledges as the most complex
technical problem in all contemporary programs of the manned space flight to Mars.)
It more badly is necessary for small flight vehicles, fluggeram.
Comparatively small sizes of these apparatuses sufficiently for long did not make
it possible to equip with their generators of shielding field. In 2618 compact
panel– generator was only created, and after three years to designer Roland For
estersonu after numerous failures it was possible to bring destroyer "Durandalle'",
equipped with generator, to the stage of working model. In the war with Concordia
the destroyer "Durandalle'" became only fluggerom, which joined the battle,
having available splendid protection from the hostile lasers.
"Hyperspace" in the UN Sphere is named X– matrix, and
hyperjump, correspondingly, is called X-passage.
X-passage is accomplished by a starship with the aid of the sustainer
engines, which work on luxogeniume. Clean luxogenium – this is the super-dense liquid,
which possesses a number of anomalous properties. For example, luxogenium not at
all freezes, even with absolute zero according to Kelvin. To more precisely say,
luxogeniumu cannot be reported so low a temperature, at which its atoms would form
rigid crystal lattice.
However, the main special feature of luxogeniuma in the fact that
this substance possesses unique capability for fraktal'noy quasi-crystallization.
I.e., under the specified physical conditions, for creation of which, strictly,
and answers the majority of components of sustainer engines (converters, Dewar
vessels and topological detonators), luxogenium forms the dynamic laminar– fibrous
structure (on the jargon of zvezdoletchikov – "asbestos"), whose dimensionality
in the terms of the theory of fraktalov exceeds 3 and it reaches 3.5-3.75. The
value of this fractional dimensionality is usually designated by h and is called
the "height of super-fold". After accepting this fractional dimensionality,
luxogenium generates the super-fold (crack, figuratively speaking) in the usual
3– measured space.
After which the specific volume, whose characteristic size is called
a "lambda-radius", during approximately 1 sec. changes its topology
and "is pulled" into that layer of X-matrix, which corresponds to the
precise value of the height of super-fold (for example, h = 3.612). In this case
the direction of X-passage is assigned by the orientation of the packet of luxogeniumovogo
"asbestos" in the Dewar vessels the sustainer engines, and distance
– with joint mass of luxogeniuma, introduced in Dewar vessels. After X– passage
luxogeniumovyy of "asbestos" in the Dewar vessels returns to the 3– measured
state and it becomes luxogeniumovym slag. This slag possesses very high radioactivity
and, correspondingly, by phenomenal luminosity. Specifically, hence and occurs
name luxogen, i.e., in this case, the "generating light".
Emergencies and the catastrophes
Of course the technology of X– passage smoothly appears only on
the paper, and in practice generate many side effects and zhutkovatykh cases.
For example, a certified lambda– radius of luxogeniumovogo engine "Vostok-38"
composes 180 it is meter (but diameter, lambda– sphere – respectively, 360 m).
This means that if we place one "Vostok-38" in the center of the frigate,
which has the length of 300 m, frigate with the reserve will be entered in the
lambda– sphere and will complete normal X– passage. However, in proportion to
the production of the service life of engine lambda– sphere will be compressed
and after approximately 50 X– passages its diameter will approach the critical
value of 310 m. if we this ignore and to continue interstellar flights, sufficiently
soon can happen the catastrophe: the detachment of the stern and nose extremities
of frigate, through which will pass the boundary still stronger than the pressed
Even the more unexpected situations can appear on the battleships
and the aircraft carriers, which have the length of 700-800 m, which usually overlaps
by lambda– spheres 4-6 engines and works of which, correspondingly, it is necessary
to synchronize with jewel-like precision. In such a case, when refuses the synchronization
at least of one of the engines, the certain fraction of the substance (let us
say, 25%) of starship will leave for one point of space, and all the remaining
substance – into another
Initially lyuksogen was obtained artificially, in very small quantities
as the by-product of the tests of early trans-mutation emitters under the management
of professor Danko Lipich, "new Columbus of physics", in 2120th years.
At the same time the study of its special properties began. When it was explained
that lyuksogen – key to the interstellar overflights, on the Earth was expanded
the industrial production of synthetic luxogenium.
Subsequently in a number of planetary systems revealed the natural
sources of luxogenium – substance find in the bound state in some minerals. Most
famous of them – and only, suitable for the scale industrial development – is
"lyuksogenovyy sand" of the planet Of parkida. Specifically, Parkida
– main source of luxogenium Of velikorasy and one of the bases of the konkordianskoy
Movement of ships in the regular space
The displacement of automatic spacecraft in the usual space occurs
in essence on the plasma engines, which in the text of trilogy on the spaceships
are called starting or manevrovo– orientational, and on fluggerakh – march.
The idea approximately the following in plasma engine. Is located
conventional chemical two– or three-component fuel-. The portions of the corresponding
propellant components will be given into the combustion chamber, where they burn
(more precisely to say – they explode) and classical exhaust jet is formed. Without
the side-line actions the discharge velocity of a similar jet would not exceed
20 km/s. Which, alas, is not enough. However, in the same combustion chamber or
in the channel of expiration products are subjected to the action of lasers and/or
powerful electromagnetic field. Therefore, gaseous combustion products "peregrevayutsya",
they acquire additional energy, they are converted into the plasma and they leave
nozzle already with speeds by the very solid: in the range from 200 to 2000 km/s.
Even to these speeds far to the speed of light, and nevertheless thrust in this
engine is obtained completely representative. Therefore with the expenditures
of comparatively small quantities of fuel the automatic spacecraft can effectively
be accelerated – i.e., as a whole are solved the problems of interplanetary overflights
without the attraction of lyuksogenovykh engines.
Plus to this, in a number of cases, especially with the starts from
the prepared spaceports, for purposes of the fuel economy and, correspondingly,
increase in the radius of action (or payload) on fluggerakh are used also the
solid-propellant accelerators of "classical" diagrams.
Actually, speed rarely exceeds 100 km/s (360000 km/h) in open space,
although it can reach 500 km/s and more. However, although there are no direct
physical limitations – they be absent the resisting force of medium – for fluggerov
and, in a number of cases, for the spaceships it is introduced the concept of
maximum speed. Maximum speed is dictated by tactical considerations and is connected
with the independence of fluggera, its maneuverability and point of no return.
UN Space Fleet
MSF (Military Space Forces) consist of Space Grand Fleet (SGF) and
ASD Command – Anti Space Defense.
Into the composition of SGF also enters the large part of "mosquito
fleet" – combat fluggers. Almost all fluggery of voyenflota have deck basing,
then exists they are assigned to the aircraft carriers and some other spacecraft.
Remaining fluggery are included in composition of forces PKO, where it is used
either from the earth bases or from the orbital fortresses.
Basic classes of combat spaceships – battleships, aircraft carriers,
frigates, monitors and trawlers. Them adjoin, as the auxiliary forces, the tugs,
different vessels of supply and guarantee, and also orbital fortresses, which
are subordinated to ASD Command.
Apart in this structure stand the landing spaceships, main classes
of which are universal landing aircraft carriers and tank-landing ships.
"Mosquito fleet" consist of the combat fluggers, ensure
fluggers and troop-carrying fluggers.
The combat fluggers include the fighters, assault aircrafts, torpedo
bombers and hunters (that also calls "barraging destroyers").
To those ensuring – fluggers of radar patrol, intelligence, electronic
warfare ("jammers"), search and rescue.
Concordian Space Fleet
According to the classes of ships and fluggerov konkordianskiy fleet
is such to fleet IT. It is less by strength, and in a qualitative respect the
difference between the oldest and newest ships more strongly is appeared.
Concordia is economically weaker than UN; therefore it cannot allow
itself to renew ship composition so intensively. Thus, some types of battleships
and aircraft carriers of building 2580-2590 in the strongest fleets IT to 2620
already were brought out from the composition of squadron forces and pereklassifitsirovany
into the orbital fortresses. Concordia could not allow herself a similar luxury;
therefore her ships of the same years of building, after undergoing sequential
innovation repair, since the beginning of the war continued to count in the first
line and intensively were used in the operations on the seizure of colonies IT
in the Sinapsian Belt.
Specifically, numerical superiority IT forced Concordia to search
for different nontrivial tactical methods. For example, konkordianskiye frigates
mastered during the studies the methods of group torpedo attacks against the large
ships. But in IT, where they adhered to the classical concept of frigate as the
ship of escort and cover, similar attacks were mastered only by torpedo bombers,
i.e., by specially intended for this fluggerami. It would seem, trifle, but in
the real military engagements for konkordianskim frigates it was possible to thoroughly
pull Italian and 2 German battleships in the course of the attacks, which according
to our tactical standards were considered suicidal.
Ground forces of the United Nations
Tank troops, which are augmented by three forms of the infantry,
remain impact force: mobile, air– assault and heavy. For their support there are
rocket– artillery troops, for the protection – their own air defense units and
PKO, for the fire action on the enemy from air – regiments of attack helicopters.
Also there are troops of connection, an electronic reconnaissance, engineer units,
physicians, chemists and one additional separate branch of services – infobor'ba
(radio-electronic opposition, masking, etc.).
On the whole, the structure of army is outwardly very close to the
usual contemporary, although the internal content differs substantially. This
is connected with the fact that the army is intended for the actions not only
on the zemlepodobnykh planets, but also for the operations on the atmosphereless
cosmic bodies (classical example: Moon), and also on the planets with the toxic
Thus, only 45% of all ground forces they are the "forces of
the general purpose". Rest 55% consist of the specialized parts and connections.
Many divisions are oriented to assault actions, i.e., landing from the orbit to
the surface of celestial body. Some individual regiments and battalions are equipped
with technology and armament, designed for the application under the critical
conditions: heavy planets (with substantially increased gravitational force),
the dense and toxic atmosphere, continuous ice cover, cold mountain-wilderness
locality (planets of the type of Mars).
In contrast to the forces of the general purpose, each such part
is formed as completely autonomous and is reached into the region of actions together
with the 60– day supply of oxygen, water and foodstuffs. Also compulsorily is
reached the domelike military post with the completely airtight construction,
for which answer 1-2 engineering and comissariat companies. Such regiments and
battalions are called "harbor", although, in contrast to clean osnaza,
to leave for the raids for these parts it is necessary far from always. Most frequently
they are called to oboznachivat' military presence IT on the freshly-open planets
with the antropofobnymi conditions in such a case, when these planets for any
reasons it is decided to include in the sphere Of velikorasy. The reasons for
such, are easy to see, three: valuable mineral, advantageous strategic position,
the presence of interesting technogenic ksenoob"ektov. Well and in the case
of serious war with the race k, inclined to the settling on the antropofobnykh
planets, precisely, harbor regiments are called to come out, together with the
"azure berets", as the assault forces, since other landing force members
to this are prepared more badly, but the forces of the general purpose – and are
not completely prepared.
Concordian ground forces
Ground forces of Concordias as military– space forces, are similar
to the terrestrial. , where a certain specific character is revealed, it is assigned
by the chaotic attempts to be prepared for the war with chorugami. Klonskiy Setad-e
Of bozorg (general staff), in contrast to the military experts IT, is inclined
to consider that the war with chorugami is inevitable. Does escape this from the
especially religious postulates (chorugi – drudzhvanty?), or Concordia has available
a certain super-important information, which does not want to be divided HE –
it is unclear, but almost all klonskiye analogs of terrestrial harbor it is regimental
they were equipped and they were trained precisely for the actions on the chorugskikh
planets: gravitational force near 3g, pressure 3-4 atm, heavenly body – old Red
Star with the low luminosity.
Special troops of the United Nations
Elite infantry of Russian directory is brought to the individual
companies, the battalions and the brigades of osnaz – special designation. In
organizational sense these parts are distributed between the reconnaissance of
fleet and the reconnaissance of army. Several our own battalions of osnaz are
Each battalion, and often also each company they have their specialization,
i.e.,: "evacuators" (release of hostages, special the removal of values),
"transport workers" (diversion on the communications), "industrialists"
(diversion in enterprises), strictly intelligence officers (collection of information
in all forms, in such cases on the position of temporary illegal rezidentury),
Osnaz of fleet – to the larger degree "space", i.e., its
soldiers, besides the excellent landing– land preparation, obtain additional habits,
skills and corresponding equipment for the actions out of the atmosphere. In particular,
there are special companies for the taking to the boarding of ships in open space.
They adapt, in the first place, against the civil and the transport it is ship,
the transporting separately valuable passengers or loads. But is possible the
boarding of the combat spaceships of enemy – in those cases, if they are badly
damaged and partially or completely left by crew. In the last situation the boarding
party of osnaz can be landed for the search for important documents or dismantling
of secret equipment, but sometimes and for the repair actions, for mine clearing
and preparation of bridgehead for the actions of emergency parties. Specifically,
so during March 2622 was seized konkordianskiy aircraft carrier "rimush".
Also in osnaze of fleet, as in GSA'S osnaze, there are individual
companies, which supplement the harbor regiments of army. In contrast to the army
harbor it is regimental, these companies are oriented not to the retention of
the key points of locality, but to impulse offensive actions to the antropofobnykh
planets and other celestial bodies. Specifically, these parts, "azure berets",
are most prepared osnazom of armed forces IT.
Special troops of Concordia
Most famous konkordianskiy Special Force – "scorpion".
This of the special-purpose force of ground forces, sufficiently numerous. Besides
strictly the special, i.e., re1dovo– diversionary tasks, on "scorpion"
frequently are assigned a mission of usual assault parts, i.e., the debarkation
in the first echelon of planetary landing, seizure and retention of bridgeheads.
Also there are the so-called "people cavalry regiments"
– the exponential guards units, completed exclusively by pekhlevanami. Of course
at the battlefield cavalrymen appear by no means on the horses, although they
obtain the outstanding upper preparation, which they willingly demonstrate in
peacetime during the holidays and the celebrations.
Further, is huntsman housing Of "aturan" – special, also
sufficiently numerous, the formation, which has the double subordination: organizationally
it belongs to land army, but the majority of its parts operationally is under
the jurisdiction by the zoroastriyskoy secret of the police of "Ash".
It is possible to say that "aturan" is not only the excellently prepared
connection of battlefield, but also the anti-rebels Special Force.
Finally, the most qualitative and many-sidedly prepared Special
Force has available the reconnaissance of konkordianskogo fleet. Semi-officially
it is called "Asmara" (verbatim – "heavy spear"), and official
name in it bulky and inexpressive: "long-penetrartion team of the 7th fleet
staff section". In "Asmara" they enroll only pekhlevanov and only
after the strictest selection. Its soldiers (by the way, into "asmara"
numerous women) obtain the preparation, in nothing which does not be inferior
to our "azure berets", and rightfully they are considered some of the
most dangerous representatives Velikorasy.
The largest Special service IT Is GSA – Global Agency Of safety.
It is occupied by literally all, including extensive searches on the themes of
the factor Of k. takzhe to GSA they lie the function of general external reconnaissance,
which works both against Concordia and against the reasonable races of extraterrestrial
Besides GSA, there are VDU GSH – military– diplomatic administration
of general staff, which has its divisions in all large colonial kommendatures
and on board many ships of the first rank. Divisions VDU must in the case of the
appearance of representatives of unknown extraterrestrial race (race k) by all
means attempt to avoid engagement. On the strength of the fact that on the conditions
of introductory about the race k it is known in exact figures nothing, military
diplomats have available all conceivable translators, parsers, devices of input/output
and processing of the information (including – extraterrestrial).
Third interesting structure – Glavdal'razvedka. This is the non-departmental
organization, which manages imposing flotilla of formally noncombat spaceships
and so formally civil a personnel. Glavdal'razvedka regularly sends its expeditions
into all corners of galaxy, to what extent is sufficient the radius of action
of spaceships. Its task – meticulous cataloging of celestial bodies, the development
of interesting planets (water, air, minerals), the completion of astrographic
list. Certainly, in the composition of each expedition Of glavdal'razvedki compulsorily
be present the colleagues GSA.
Also there are two traditional military intelligence: army and sailor.
This is the complete analog of famous GRU.
But the most ominous and deeply conspired special service – counter
espionage, the similarity Stalin SMERSH. Counter espionage is officially named
the main administration of information opposition (GUIP); also it can come out
from the person of fictitious services "field utilization" and "sankontrol'".
Therefore servicemen call counter espionage sometimes "medical orderlies",
sometimes by "utilizers", but they most frequently name it on the old
tradition: "dissent". "dissent", as it is assumed, is occupied
with the search of hostile agents and saboteurs, it proceeding from the presumption
of the fact that the ominous race k is capable of creating the precise copies
of people and of injecting these replikantov in the military and civil structures.
Counter espionage outgrew by a countless quantity of legends. In
it allegedly, besides people, serve specially invited sirkhi and chorugi, since
chorugi possess molecular sight, and sirkhi, again allegedly – as plenty telepathic
abilities. Also there is the opinion that the counter espionage has available
ksenooruzhiyem, including disintegrators and frizerami.
In Concordia the similar structure of special services. Exception
is only zaotarskaya secret police of "Ash", whose analogs in IT be absent.
To this organization are entrusted the tasks of the suppression of heavy religious
crimes, in particular – fight with manikheyami.
Secret weapons and technologies
Admirals IT lay special hopes for the destroyer "dyurandal'",
which has already been discussed above, and on X– cruiser.
X– cruiser – last word of the space technologies of Russian directory.
These super-contemporary spaceships are capable of stably being in the boundary
layers of X– matrix, i.e., in the zone of dimensionality 3.05 – 3.1. This allows
for them, remaining completely invisible from the usual 3– measured space, news
observation with the aid of the mass– locators of the hostile spaceships. After
engaging advantageous position, X– cruiser they accomplish jump into the 3– measured
space, they attack enemy torpedoes and swiftly "dive" conversely. Thus,
X– cruiser – this is the enormous space submarine, which, true, in contrast to
the contemporary submarine, for the attack of enemy is forced on the short period
to show "on the surface".
Alas, for this important tactical advantage it is necessary to pay.
From 70% to 90% of internal volume of X– cruisers it is occupied with the most
complex and very capricious aggregates, including annular lyuksogenoprovodami,
which, strictly, and ensure the stable 3– regularity of ship in the X– matrix.
All this economy regularly breaks; therefore the large part of the crew compose
officer– engineers technology. Also on the X– cruisers very poor suitability for
inhabitation. From this parameter they not far left from the submarines of the
times of the second world.
Concordia stands somewhat lower IT on the level of technological
development; therefore by such achievements khayteka brag cannot. However, when
there is no its superkhayteka, to the aid comes the stranger. Concordia by decades
conducted investigation of the anomalous physical properties of planet verb, caused,
as it will be explained in the last book of trilogy, by the activity of one developed
extraterrestrial race. On the basis of these searches it was succeeded in creating
the models of very dangerous armaments. These models, however, as express themselves
designers, "they are not led". In combat of the first months of war
to use them they were not solved. But, as we understand, when situation at the
fronts are poor, last trumps go in the course. So that in the novel "time
– Moscow!" klonskoye miracle– weapon still will attempt to say its weighty
Furthermore, Concordia even before the war created the enormous
flying batteries – so-called rocket monitors. It was possible to preserve this
fact in strict secrecy. It turned out that under the favorable tactical conditions
these vulnerable and clumsy ships can be very effective. Especially if their purposes
are the peaceful cities of the Earth, cannot be been missed past which...
Giant ships and the space fortresses
Velikorasa is not obsessed by megalomania. The largest spaceships
do not exceed along the length of kilometer. The largest orbital fortresses have
sizes from the force two or three times large. Rate is done not to the supergiants,
but to the large-scale building of the warships of the moderate sizes as in the
leading contemporary fleets.
The most capacious spaceships Of velikorasy are the European "large
Hans" – transports with the enormous cargo hold, in which can be placed atomic
submarine. At the end of the war with Concordia these transports ("Neystria",
"Austrasia", "Thuringia", etc.) played important role in
the support of an operation on the seizure of Parkida.
For understanding of the entire internal logic of trilogy "tomorrow
war" is extremely important the following moment: IT and Concordia several
months after the beginning of war shooting adhered to the knightly principles
of waging of war. Despite the fact that the surprise attack of Concordias was
accompanied by a series of scale diversions; including on the civil objects of
the Earth – the clones managed without OMP, although there exactly was great the
temptation to use a chemical, and biological weapon.
This is easy to explain. First, zoroastriyskaya ethics – by no means
worse thing in the world. In the second place, elementary logic prompts that to
use OMP with impunity is possible only against the anthill. Any respecting itself
super-power OF THE XXVII century, even if its military potential is blown up to
90% with the aid of OMP, will search for the possibilities from the last forces
to apply to enemy the crushing retaliatory attack by the surviving nuclear weapon.
The problem OMP is had military technical aspect. In THE XXIV century
to standby alert was placed the system of global atomic defense – "Nigredo".
The emitters of the remote transmutation of heavy radioactive elements find in
arsenal of this system. At a distance into ten and even hundreds of thousands
of kilometers they are capable of assuredly render inoperableing any atomic and
subatomic ammunition, converting plutonium and californium into lead and other
stable elements. Certainly, has its deficiencies – let us say the system "Nigredo",
it requires completely fantastic power consumption. Figuratively speaking, entire
electricity in the civil networks will disappear at the moment of switching on
of trans-mutation emitters on the Earth. Yes even emitters themselves have cyclopean
sizes – as the largest contemporary radiotelescopes. Therefore to install "Nigredo"
it was possible, besides the Earth, only on tens of other most important planets,
including to four klonskikh. Thus, the freedom of the application of an atomic
weapon remains with respect to the majority of colonies, and also any combat spaceships,
which are located beyond the limits of the denuclearized zones of eleven planets,
which have available system "Nigredo".
This, of course, large problem, because the desire to explode hateful
enemy aircraft carriers by one– only torpedo with atomic BCH steadily it grew
in proportion to the escalation of war also finally somebody of the konkordianskikh
naval commanders did not restrain...
