Throwing tests "Sarmat" will be held before the end of the year

The Defense Ministry plans to carry out throwing tests of the Sarmat ICBM by the end of this year, reports Kommersant with reference to its sources.


Throwing tests "Sarmat" will be held before the end of the year


The program provides for launching a rocket from a mine installation from the Plesetsk test site.

The main goal is to check the operation of the rocket systems at the moment of leaving the mine and to turn on the first stage of the Sarmat with the subsequent work for about five seconds
told one of the sources.

According to him, “if the throwing test passes properly, the second will take place in the same year.”

The newspaper reminds that the development of the engine for the RS-28 “Sarmat” rocket was carried out by the NPO “Energomash”, which received a technical assignment for the development of a promising propulsion system at the beginning of the 2013 year. The first successful fire tests of the first stage engine took place in August of the 2016.

In March last year, it was noted that the development of the production of a liquid-propellant rocket engine for ICBMs was lagging behind the target dates "due to the novelty of products."

Military expert Alexei Leonkov noted that when the Ministry of Defense adopted the RS-20V Voivod missile, which the RS-28 Sarmatian was intended to replace, it was conducted "more than 30 dump tests, and not all of them were successful."

Since these are three-stage rockets, there should be a lot of tests so that each stage works like a clock, because you cannot eliminate any difficulty in flight,
said the expert.

However, according to him, the next generation after Voevoda will require fewer “throws”, which means that further periods may not move any more.

As Leonkov specified, “before the flight design tests, several throwing tests and several valid tests should be held (to defeat the target zone and to the maximum range).” Successful tests of the rocket are also significant because it is designed to perform the functions of a hypersonic carrier. weaponswhich should be one of the key factors for the breakthrough of the existing and future missile defense system.

Earlier, the military reported that the rocket should be put into service in 2019 – 2020.

    It was possible not to write about the progress of work. Would report in a closed format. Why trumpet an unfinished business?

      Do you consider the option that the Korrespondent reporters themselves have taken an interest in principle?

      Whoever needs it knows already, including overseas. And about the trumpet ahead of time, that's why they blow, because they know that they will finish what they started. Moreover, the conversation is about testing, I do not understand where is the crime? People work, I can only wish you success.

    And we always do. First we shout rya-rya, and then quietly begin to work out. Already, even delusional, but the picture appeared on the internet. Yes, and a lot of things. for example, the RS-28 index. This is a "contractual" index. This is how our ICBMs are designated at the conclusion of the contract. It is usually assigned after the first show to the "partners" in the negotiation process of the rocket, that is, before putting into service. And then there were no throwing ones, but the index was already invented for him

    God grant that we have time. And then, judging by the news above, the plot spins more energetically ...

    Everything has just begun in essence. Until the age of 20, God forbid, they will begin to replace the Voivode with the Sarmatians. This is if there are no time shifts and funding failures.

      The article says that they are only planning to take the missile into service in 19-20. What kind of replacement can we talk about before the year 20, if we always have the terms for adopting weapons shifted to the right? A year of commercials in 25 may begin

        They won’t start ... The 20th year is not just designated. The resource Voivod has been extended already three times and there is no point in extending it anymore. The last time was extended to 20 years. Therefore, they talk about this date. In this case, you need to understand the priority of the Sarmatian project for the national security of the country .

      Why change. “Sarmatians” to deliver, and “Voivode” to extend the terms of combat duty. Times are now vague, come in handy.

        Renewed already three times ... the last time until 20 years. After, renewing is pointless. Therefore, in general, the Sarmatian ICBMs are created specifically to replace the Voivode.

    Military expert Alexei Leonkov noted that when the Ministry of Defense adopted the RS-20V Voivod missile, which the RS-28 Sarmatian was intended to replace, it was conducted "more than 30 dump tests, and not all of them were successful."

    And this is generally an expert’s masterpiece. Throwing tests were carried out only when creating the R-36M rocket, or as it is also called RS-20A. Neither during the creation of the R-36M UTTH or RS-20B rocket, nor during the creation of the R-36M2 Voyevoda or RS-20B rocket, throw-through tests were not conducted.
    Yes, not all throw tests when creating the R-36M (RS-20A) were successful. But this is understandable. The development of a new design is in progress. At the test site near Pavlograd (at the factory test site), 20 tests were conducted. 15 series "K" and 5 series "D". Most were successful.
    At Baikonur, 10 throw tests of stages 2, 3 and 4 were carried out, of which 2 were unsuccessful. Even here Leonkov writes that there were more than 30 throw tests, although there were EXACTLY 30

    And no matter how much you write, there will always be someone from the experts who will repeat this once again. So it turns out that the "100-ton heavy-class rocket" turns into a rocket weighing 100 tons, then into a rocket with a mass of 210 tons, like the Voevoda. How many blocks will be - also no one knows. For the time being, we are observing strategic agreements with the Americans, and there is a limit on the number of warheads for ICBMs — 10, for SLBMs — 14. Moreover, there have already been statements at the level of deputy defense minister that the new ICBM will deliver 10 tons of “gifts” to the enemy, even through the South Pole . True, nobody at the same time bothered to figure out what the mass of such a rocket would “pour out into”. Compared with her, the Voivode will seem like a fluff.

    “Sarmat” is understandable, but what about the “Mace”? Does it fly or was it "put into service"?
