Expert: Russia will in the short term to recover nuclear test sites

Russia will be able to quickly restore the test site for nuclear tests if the United States will begin the same tests in Nevada, or have an acute technical need to test the new nuclear warheads, said Wednesday RIA Novosti expert in the field of strategic weapons, a veteran of the strategic missile forces, Vladimir Yevseyev.

Previously, the Pentagon confirmed that during the speed test of the new hypersonic missiles, which the President Donald trump called "super-duper", exceeded the speed of sound in 17 times.

The expert told about the characteristics of the complex, which will replace the "YARS"

New mobile ground missile system (pgrk), which will replace standing now in service with the strategic Missile forces pgrk "YARS" will probably have increased accuracy and range, said in an interview with RIA Novosti expert in the field of strategic weapons, a veteran of the strategic missile forces, Vladimir Yevseyev.

"It must be mobile systems with multiple warheads, like "YARS", perhaps with an even greater number of warheads. At the same time before designers will face the problem of increasing the accuracy and payload while maintaining existing weight and size characteristics of the complex, while 1.2 tonnes remain the limit for us. Would also increase the firing range of 12 thousand kilometers as the "YARS" to 16 thousand," - he said.

About what is known about promising rocket — in the material RIA Novosti.

The competition for the new silo-based ICBMs in the US announced in 2016. For the order decided to fight two industrial giants, such as Boeing and Northrop Grumman. In 2017, the company received money from the budget on the sketch plan 349 and 329 million dollars respectively.

Experts told about the disposal of the last Soviet nuclear warheads
