He also noted that the Khrunichev Center is developing and creating for the needs of the Ministry of Defense the newest Angara space rocket complex.

Proton-M is a one-time heavy-class launch vehicle designed for launching automatic spacecraft into Earth orbit and further into outer space. Able to put into geostationary orbit (GSO) loads up to 3,3 t.

The minister also noted that in the closed part of the meeting it is planned to discuss the buildup of a group of military satellites. Strengthening the orbital constellation of the Space Forces with modern satellites will increase the combat capabilities of the Russian Armed Forces, Shoigu added.

    This is better than an armored boat)))
    Let us hope that our aircraft will receive a satellite system capable of providing not only high-quality reconnaissance, but also target designation, for reliable use of missile defense against moving naval targets ...

      In Soviet times, there was a special officer for each military representative who stopped attempts to smuggle marriage through a military acceptance for a bottle of cognac.

        Believe me, in the USSR military representatives not only weren’t "led" to cognac ... at all, this category was ANIMAL - ZANUDA - RAM in one bottle ... however, it was quite possible to get along with them, if you did not mess up.

        but it’s even better if he even served urgent, and at first even Marshal wore the epaulettes of the wrong ones!

        As for Shoigu, I will say this, I would go with him to reconnaissance. For all the time I did not compromise myself.

    This has been a problem before. And you need to solve it quickly. When I was 90, we had a good missile system. But a satellite was to be created for him. But they did not create it, but the complex was destroyed.

    Most likely, the second Blagovest will not have time to launch on December 24, as previously planned, if only they plan to receive a rocket in December (.
