Stealth, mobility, and ability to get to any continent — exactly 35 years ago, July 23, 1985, the strategic Missile forces were armed with mobile missile complex "Topol". In the West it is called Sickle, in translation into Russian — "Hammer". Since the wheel "rakatovao" is based almost half of all the existing Russian Intercontinental warheads. The United States went the other way. About the different approaches of the two largest nuclear powers in the material RIA Novosti.
Along with mobile ground complexes of the strategic missile forces now have fifty heavy Intercontinental ballistic missiles "Voivod" and dozens of UR-100 silo-based. There is mine version of "the Poplars".
The possible reduction in state program of armaments (GPV 2018-2027) threatens to postpone the development of prospective weapons, but not a complete rejection of them, said Tuesday RIA Novosti member of the expert Council under the Russian Military-industrial Commission of the Russian Federation Victor murakhovski.
According to the letter of the Ministry of Finance, Federal spending on SAP in the years 2021-2023 proposed to reduce by 5%. The issue was discussed on 7 July at a meeting with Prime Minister Mikhail mishustina, but the final decision is still pending.
The main function of the latest Russian laser complex "Peresvet" is likely to be "blowing out", i.e. temporarily disabling the optical navigation and satellite equipment, in the future he will be able to deliver onboard equipment from irreparable damage, said RIA Novosti member of the expert Council under the Board of the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation Viktor murakhovski.
He commented on the article Peresvet: Russian mobile laser system to blind enemy satellites" published in the American online publication the Space Review, according to which the main function of the latest Russian laser complex "Peresvet" is the "blowing out" satellites.
Means of dealing with hypersonic weapons will be fully automated, since people will not be able to manage them, get the steering engines as the spacecraft and a completely new guidance system, suggested in an interview with RIA Novosti, a Russian military expert and chief editor of the magazine "Arsenal Fatherland" Victor murakhovski.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated that when other countries create hypersonic ballistic missiles, like those that are already in Russia, you will be "surprised" by the fact that the Russian Federation will have developed means of dealing with them.
The Russian MiG-35 in the future will get a new generation of precision-guided weapons class "air-surface", says chief editor of the magazine "Arsenal Fatherland" Victor murakhovski.
Previously, the test pilot aircraft Corporation "MiG" Dmitry Selivanov told RIA Novosti that almost the whole range of weapons has already been tested on the latest MiG-35, but there are advanced models that are not yet ready for practical flight.
Compact, stealth, maneuverability and Arsenal, firepower comparable to a large armament of destroyers and cruisers in the sea is being tested, another small rocket ship project 22800 "Odintsovo". The Navy will get eighteen such MRK — they will be distributed between the Baltic, black sea and Pacific fleets. About the fighting capabilities and tactics of the rocket "kids" in the material RIA Novosti.
Small missile ships of the project 22800, or "black widow" began to develop in the 2010s, the first model introduced in 2015. According to the classification of IRAS refer to the ships of the third rank or small corvettes: length — 70 meters width — 11 meters, full load displacement — a total of 870 tons. "Widow" — the continuation of the IRS's previous generation of "Buyan-M" existing in the Baltic sea and the Caspian sea.
Russian satellite constellation System warning of missile attack to date is able to track launches of Intercontinental ballistic missiles, mainly from the United States, and after bringing to the full-time staff will be able to capture all launches from submarines in the oceans, said RIA Novosti member of the expert Council under the Board of the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation Viktor murakhovski.
The expert recalled that the composition is similar to the American satellite system of four satellites in geostationary orbit and instrument observation of the triggers on the four electronic reconnaissance satellites flying in highly elliptical orbits. In addition, in 2009, was launched three low-orbit apparatus system. Also in the geostationary orbit continue to operate the satellites of the previous series DSP.
The destruction in 1995 at the Semipalatinsk test site of the last Soviet nuclear warheads destined for a scientific experiment, demonstrated the unique capabilities of Russian specialists in the field of nuclear safety, which can be used in the further denuclearization of the world, consider interviewed by RIA Novosti experts.
Exactly 25 years ago, on 31 may 1995, on the former Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, located in the North-East of Kazakhstan was destroyed last nuclear warhead, produced in the Soviet Union. In just 50 years polygon (1949-1989) was produced 468 air, ground and underground nuclear explosions. Underground tests were conducted in the tunnels of Degelen mountain massif, where this charge continued to lie after the closing of the landfill.
