At least 200,000 NATO troops and five aircraft carrier combat groups near the Russian border have been assigned level 1 status, according to the media reports.
NATO has openly indicated that it plans to deploy four more ground combat groups in multiple NATO member nations, including Romania and Slovakia, according to various media reports. Along with existing NATO forces deployed in the three Baltic nations and in Poland previously, according to this information. NATO has put together eight ground combat formations on its eastern border. The number of NATO troops stationed on the bloc’s eastern frontier has risen to 200,000, with tens of thousands of tanks and armoured warfare vehicles. All of these forces are also at a high state of combat preparedness.
At the same time, NATO announced that eight multinational ground combat groups stationed in the east wing of the alliance were in preparation. There are also powerful air and sea combat forces to back them up. Nordic and Mediterranean are two of the five aircraft carrier strike groups. There are also a substantial number of F-15 fighter-bombers, F-16 multirole fighters, and some F35 stealth fighter jets in Poland, Germany, Italy, and other NATO member countries.
Hundreds of air defence and anti-missile systems, such as the Patriot air defence missile system and the Aegis high-altitude anti-missile system, have also been deployed in other nations, such as Romania. And these weapons are already in combat readiness, ready to strike Russian targets. In the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, NATO and its allies have eight multinational force groups, hundreds of thousands of troops on level one combat readiness, and five carrier strike groups. However, due to Russia’s nuclear deterrent, these forces are likewise powerless to intervene.
Despite the US’s massive anti-missile defence system, Russia remains the only country in the world capable of confronting the US with a nuclear strike. Russia’s RS-28 missile is currently the most powerful strategic nuclear missile on the market. The RS-28’s destructive force is 1,600 times greater than that of the American atomic bomb “Boy,” which destroyed Hiroshima, Japan.
According to a conservative Western estimate, one RS-28 intercontinental missile is capable of destroying the entire land of the United Kingdom, Germany, or Italy. Furthermore, the RS-28 could be used to launch hypersonic warheads. At least four hypersonic warheads may be carried by an RS-28 missile at the same time, thereby reducing the US anti-missile system into a “decoration.”
According to a NATO statement, five carrier strike groups have been deployed in the Nordic Sea and the Mediterranean, together with F-15, F-16, Rafale, Typhoon, and hundreds of F-35 fifth generation fighters, all of which are plainly ready for war to begin. With such a powerful force deployed, it is evident that NATO does not need to wait for Russian shells to fall into NATO territory before invading, and Russia is well aware of this. As a result, Russia’s military forces are always alert and ready to battle.
In recent decades, NATO has rarely deployed five carrier battle groups in the same zone. The deployment of one carrier battle group at a time, according to US Army practise, is a standard combat preparedness exercise. What would the US and NATO do if they deployed two carrier battle groups at once to undertake deterrence and more than three carrier battle groups at once?
As a result, the US Army and NATO deploying five carrier battle groups at the same time is a symptom of the increased tension in Europe; and because war is unpredictable, an all-out war might occur, with disastrous repercussions.
