WW3 Just 300 Miles Off US Mainland? Russian Growler On Alert In The Arctic


World War 3 might not erupt in Syria, over South China Sea and even in Turkey, as what many believe. The looming third world war may be brewing just 300 miles from the U.S. mainland. Russia has stationed two S-400 advanced Growler surface-to-air missile systems in six polar bases within the border of U.S. in the arctic.

An anonymous source from the Russian Armed Forces revealed that Russian S-400 growlers were deployed to the Novaya Zemlya archipelago and the port of Tiksi in the Arctic Ocean. The growlers stationed at the Wrangle Island and Cape Schmidt in Chukotka are put on war alert round the clock, the source told TASS. These bases mentioned were just within 300 miles from the U.S. mainland.

The Russian S-400 is a new generation system that has the capability of destroying all modern aircraft, including tactical and strategic airplanes, ballistic missiles and hypersonic targets according to the Global Security website. The system is capable of attacking up to 36 airplanes within 150 kilometers. The website noted that the S-400 Triumf Growler will form the cornerstone of Russia’s air and missile defense by 2020.

Aside from the Growlers, Russia also stationed in their Arctic bases aircraft control posts and radio-technical, radar and space surveillance unit. The weapons were specifically stationed along the Northern Sea Route from the Kola Peninsula and Novaya Zemlya to Andyr and Cape Schmidt. “All of them are on alert duty,” the insider told TASS.

Russia has also plans of building 13 aerodomes, one aviation raining range and 10 technical positions of radar units and aviation guidance points in the Arctic according to TASS. In fact, Russia had already commenced building seven aerodromes in Yakutia, Taimyr and Chukotka, the report said.

On Dec. 7, President Vladimir Putin had a meeting with the Mikhail Kovalchuk, director of Russia’s National Research Center. The director told the president that Russia has established a big environmental center in the Arctic. As per Mr. Putin’s order, the new center will enable Moscow to advance nuclear technology and nuclear energy beyond the Arctic Circle.

The prospect of direct confrontation between Russia and the U.S. spells a looming World War 3. Words about an impending WW3 sparked since Russia’s annexation of Crimea in March 2014. Since then, both U.S. and Russia kept advancing their military weapons, including nuclear weapons. The fears of a possible third world war grew louder when Turkey downed Russian bomber over the Syrian airspace. Some analysts were saying that a proxy WW3 is already happening in Syria.
