How the secrets of OTRK "Oka" became known to Americans

The tactical missile system 9K714 "Oka", known in the West as SS-23 "Spider" ("Spider"), was the pride of the Soviet army. NATO generals considered him one of the most dangerous specimens. weapons USSR and the Warsaw Pact, writes Messenger of Mordovia.

How the secrets of OTRK "Oka" became known to Americans

Indeed, NATO’s fears were well-founded: “Mounted on a floating high-mobile BAZ-6944 chassis with a powerful 400-powerful Spider engine could deliver unexpected high-precision strikes, including using nuclear and chemical warheads. Now it is precisely known that the advertised Patriot was powerless against the Soviet super-weapon, ”writes the author of the material Daniel Rodionov.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the Americans began to urge the leadership of the USSR to destroy these complexes. “Although SS-23 did not fall under the agreement on the limitation of medium-range and short-range missiles (they had never been tested at distances over 400 km), guided by“ new thinking ”, it was decided to destroy 102 launchers and more 200 missiles to them. The army’s combat damage was enormous, ”the article says.

Subsequently it turned out, by thoughtlessness or malicious intent, about the secret missile systems that were in service with the Warsaw Pact countries, "forgot". GDR alone became the mistress of 18 installations (destroyed in 1990). The same amount was in Bulgaria. Approximately 10 machines remained in Slovakia and 4 more - in Romania.

Later, the leadership of these countries all the Soviet military secrets to which it had access, handed over to the NATO command. So, "Spiders" were on the American ranges, where anti-missile systems were being worked out.

It is also known that the USA bought in the former socialist countries of Europe, including in Ukraine, the old Elbrus, Luna missile systems and the newer Dots.

“Apparently, the characteristics of SS-23 seriously frightened NATO members, since at the beginning of the XXI century they demanded from Slovakia the complete destruction of all the complexes at its disposal. The bloc calmed down on this occasion only when the last rocket was blown up, ”the author concludes.

      So far, only to him the order of merit, but the Russian pension, I think is not weak. And so all the words about the responsibility of MSG are just a spoilage of air.

          Another count of those Bolsheviks who gave such weapons to all the Bulgarian Roman Catholic gods, besides this device there is much more advanced at that time, including fighter jets.
          In defense of Gorbiiuda, a range of up to 400 km, warhead mass is more than 700 kg, however, a high-explosive warhead, with a slight movement of the hand (replacing the warheads at the starting position took 15 minutes), the mine was replaced by a vigorous charge, the weight of such a charge is less by an order of magnitude. Having a direct correlation between the weight being thrown and the range, one has to admit that this falls under the agreement on limiting INF.

      no not in the "tag" is too simple and humane

      Agnieszka Ucinska (FocusHistoria).

      In the eastern lands of the Commonwealth for treason were sentenced to imprisonment. During this cruel execution, the victim lay in a raskoryachku with his hands tied behind his back. To convict could not move, one of the assistants of the executioner sat on his shoulders. The perpetrator shoved the stake as deep as he could, and then hammered it even deeper with a hammer. The victim, “strung together” on a stake, was put in an upright position, and thus, thanks to the weight of his own body, the condemned man crawled deeper and deeper. To facilitate the execution, the executioner daubed a stake with lard. The tip of the stake was blunt and rounded so as not to pierce the internal organs. Provided the execution was executed correctly, the stake found a “natural” way in the body and reached the chest. The most famous literary description of impalement was left to us by Henryk Sienkiewicz in “Pan Volodyevsky”:

    How did the secrets become known? There is no secret. The end of the 80s. - This is the "all for sale" time. Then betrayal became the norm of the party, sovno-nomenclature. The complete moral and political decomposition of the "partocrats" and the disregard for the interests of the Soviet state and the Soviet people caused the transfer of all defense secrets. And in our time, traitors play the first roles in public consciousness. You watch the news, there is a message according to the version of the Russian Forbes that M. Fridman is recognized as the best Russian businessman for having invested 5 billion dollars abroad, having previously exported them from the Russian Federation. And why not invest in the Russian strategy of import substitution? All this is betrayal of the top.

    My father told me (retired colonels of the guard) that when, according to the hunchback’s decree, these complexes were cut (they were put out of order before being sent out for recycling from a commission of NATO officials and officers), the officers stood and tears ran down everyone’s cheeks! And the service weapon was taken away from all the officers, even from the duty officers, before that, so that no one would place lynching on the traitors on the spot ....

      Yes, you see, ordinary people cannot be fooled. The people will always see the truth and will curse the traitors of the motherland, who was the hunchbacked one.
