UK Space Command: Russia and China challenge satellites with a British fighter missile
British Space Command could soon send RAF Typhoon Fighter jets not only to Earth, but also to space. Its purpose will be to destroy enemy satellites. Experts say that war, military and communications satellites in China and Russia are expected to pose a challenge to the country's security system. For this the mission is being prepared which will train its senior pilots. For this, simulation exercises will be conducted first and after it is passed, flight training exercises will be conducted.

The training would be without a flight training missile. You have to fly 40,000 feet first and then 20,000 feet. In the event of an attack, they have to target the enemy satellite and launch the counter satellite from a height of 60,000 feet. Russia and China have already developed ASAT surface, air and sea missiles that can land via the Global Positioning System (GPS) and communications satellites.

Air Comrade Paul Godfrey, the pilot of the storm, was appointed the first head of the British Space Command two weeks ago. Air Force Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston has warned that it might be controversial to discuss space as a military zone, but if the British Army does not take the crisis facing its moons seriously, it would be gross negligence. The UK has not yet produced ASAT missiles.

Meanwhile, the United States has had this technology since 1980 when an old weather satellite was downed by a fighter aircraft. The American SM-3 anti-satellite missile can be placed under an RAF Typhoon aircraft, but it can affect its weight. Russia has also developed a direct-pronounced anti-satellite surface-to-surface missile and a space system launched from another satellite. The US Department of Defense says that China has land-based missiles that can target satellites in low Earth orbit.
