The Pentagon Awards Contract To Northrop Grumman To “Beef Up” Nuclear Weapons

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The United States is spending $85 billion to upgrade its nuclear arsenal. The Pentagon has handed arms manufacturer Northrop Grumman a colossal $13.3 billion contract to develop a new ICBM to replace the Minuteman III missile.

What else does 2020 having in store for us? It is difficult to say, but one thing is for sure, the United States is going to be spending a lot of money to update weapons of mass destruction. This “beefing up” of nuclear weapons is part of a sweeping modernization effort to update the U.S.’ nuclear triad.

The new long-range missile, according to the Air Force, “will have increased accuracy, enhanced security, and improved reliability to provide the United States with an upgraded and broader array of strategic nuclear options.” It is expected to be in operation by 2029 and could ultimately cost up to $85 billion.

Though Boeing also vied for the contract, it dropped from the bidding in July after Northrop’s acquisition of Orbital ATK, a solid rocket motor manufacturer, one of only two US-based suppliers for that type of motor. Boeing argued the other supplier was not suitable for the GBSD project, and that the Northrop-owned company dragged its feet in price negotiations, claiming Northrop had an “unfair advantage.” The Air Force refused to act on Boeing’s complaints, however, and the firm withdrew its bid. –RT

President Donald Trump has embraced the nuclear initiative with open arms, even approving greater spending for the project in the 2021 budget. In addition to replacing the Minuteman III, whose first variant was put into service in 1970, the military is also working to revamp the other two legs of the U.S. nuclear triad, including upgrades for its nuclear-capable aircraft and submarines.

Of course, we know the government and elitists have weapons that we don’t know about.  The development of a new ICBM comes as part of a massive nuclear modernization scheme instituted under former President Barack Obama, initially set to cost $1 trillion and span three decades.

Stay aware and alert. Know this is going on. Be prepared. Times are strange, to say the least, and the timing of this feels “off” at best.
