U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/TENTH Fleet Strategic Plan 2015-2020 Review

 

Though the title of this article may lead one to believe that I am going to write a critique of the subject document, alas, I am not.  What I do hope to do is to emphasize the importance of such a plan, summarize its contents, and then pose the question:  “How are we doing?”  Though formal progress reviews will be conducted by the staff, this forum allows a more candid, open dialogue for assessing where we are and where we need to go — by those who are affected most (read: our readers).

Without a Warning: The Story of the Shoot Down of a U-2 Spy Plane During the Cuban Missile Crisis (Guest Post, Part II)

 

It took over forty years before we finally learned from the Russians who authorized the shoot down of Major Anderson’s U-2 and why … answers that revealed the best kept secret of the Cuban Missile Crisis.  The “who” was a lower ranking general in charge of Soviet air defenses who gave the order after failing to reach the Soviet commander in Cuba. The “why” is frightening even after all these years. By direction the general had brought the entire air defense radar network into full combat mode the night before and he was able to follow the track of the U-2 in real time.  He watched as it entered Cuban airspace and flew across the island to the Guantanamo Naval Base environs before turning back toward the northeast coast. He knew Anderson had overflown a Soviet FKR-1 cruise missile battery that had moved overnight to an open firing position 15 miles from the huge American naval base.  The general correctly believed that the Americans were unaware of the deployment of cruise missiles to Cuba and realized that Anderson’s film would uncover this crucial defensive capability. The FRK-1 was capable of delivering a Hiroshima bomb-sized nuclear warhead over 100 miles that could decimate the naval base and destroy an unsuspecting invasion force.
