The first "official discharge" in the media about the "ocean-based multi-purpose system Status-6" took place on November 9, 2015, when during the meeting the President on the MIC issues, during the protocol part for the media, was "accidentally" shown a printed sheet from the presentation of this The system got a close-up, although then these frames with the TV companies website were deleted, but they didn’t delete them from the Internet.
On this slide, it was written: Ocean Status-6 multi-purpose system. The lead contractor for the design and development work is OJSC "TsKB MT" Rubin ", one of the two leading developers of submarines and underwater systems. The main element of the system indicated there was a" self-propelled underwater vehicle "(SPA) - a giant torpedo. The length was 24-25mm, caliber 1600mm approximately . in conventional torpedoes caliber 533mm, there are more "plump" heavy torpedo 650mm, and small-sized anti-324-400mm calibers that before long, the domestic torpedo 533mm order 7m (NATO's shorter, they have cell phones in short), and 650mm - 11m length .
The TTX SPA on the slide was also impressive - the speed was "more than 100 knots" (185.2 km / h), the working depths of the course were "more than 1000 m", and the range was completely fantastic - more than 10000 km. Similar characteristics are achievable only with a nuclear power plant. And such compact reactors in Russia were developed long ago, moreover, given the availability of flotilla AGS - nuclear deep-sea stations GUGI Navy, these deep-water and super-deep-sea atomic minisubmarines of reconnaissance-sabotage and research purposes, the experience with small reactors has been enormous. Nevertheless, many then and then took such performance characteristics as a fairy tale.
The purpose of the "ocean system" in that "overflow" was to "defeat the important objects of the enemy’s economy in the coastal area and to cause guaranteed unacceptable damage to the country’s territory by creating zones of extensive radioactive contamination unsuitable for military, economic and other activities in these areas a long time. " Many quickly guessed what it was about. If you believe the picture, the massive head of the SPA allows you to place there a thermonuclear multistage (2-3 steps) physical package and its power can be 50, and 100 and more megatons. In 1961 the power of the only, probably, in those days, Soviet male thermonuclear bomb Ivan, also known as Tsar Bomb and Mother of Kouzma, was 58Мт, a little more than half of the nominal power it was blown up , by replacing lead rings with uranium at the third stage. As for names - in those days, the rest of the bombs had female names like "Natasha" or "Mary", why nuclear energy was associated with a woman by the developers - guess yourself, dear readers. And if "Ivan" weighed 28, then the current charge of such power is quite realistic to collect in tons, so 10, probably.
What will happen if such a charge explodes near the naval base and a large seaside city? It is estimated that the wave height can exceed half a kilometer. And if the charge is made detachable and also self-propelled, and "shove" it ashore? And if to make a charge with cobalt rings? After all, modern thermonuclear charges, especially of high power, are almost pure. If the explosion is atmospheric (that is, the fireball does not touch the ground and there is no crater and no rise of the earth’s masses), if the fraction of the fusion reaction is more than 90%, then it will be. And we have written about "long-term contamination" - and if we really put cobalt-59 rings in charge, then in an explosion it will become cobalt-60 - a very radioactive isotope with a long half-life. With this infection, the standard "rule of sevens" no longer works. It says that for every sevenfold increase in the time elapsed from the detonation of the splitting device (starting from an hour onwards), the radiation intensity drops by an order of magnitude. That is, 7% from the initial level remains after 10ч, 49% remains from 10ч and so on. And after 6 months. the rate of incidence of the radiation level increases even more. Thermonuclear charges dependence is slightly different, but generally similar. But with cobalt, no activity on the contaminated lands will be impossible for thousands of years. Without decontamination, very dangerous and expensive in this case. No one has ever exploded such bombs; this is a pure theorist plus a small number of experiments during underground explosions in Britain in 1957. and the USSR in 1971., who convinced the military that it’s better to let it remain a theory. But as an opportunity for such a charge, you can consider it.
And if we assume that the combat part of the SPA is called a “combat module” for nothing, then it should be expected that it can be separated from the “super-torpedo” and can even be equipped with the means of its delivery to the land - for greater effect. Moreover, the SPA may well not only reach the coast of the enemy, but also hide there before the deadline, or reset the combat module and return back - something expensive and with a nuclear reactor, it is possible to make it reusable. In general, there is room for both fantasy and tactics of use. In theory, such devices can even go on the march long before the start of the war (days or weeks). And the war can begin with the operation of their payload. Or as a finishing chord, a so-called pang with a miseric cord, finishing off, or, if unlucky, a punch from the grave, sending the enemy there. And under the contract is weapon also does not fall.
The carrier of the SPA indicated were two APLSN - special purpose nuclear submarines. The first “HUGI cruiser” under the “Status-6” system will be the former Belgorod “killer of aircraft carriers” (soon, it seems, without noise and a pump can release the water) and the cruiser of the 09852 new project, which will be tuned into the 949 project from the 09851 project. Khabarovsk ", laid down in 2014g. About it is not known really anything but an approximate appearance. Each of these boats, according to the same slide, can carry the 6 SPA (they are not referred to as supertorpedoes or torpedoes at all, although this is still torpedoes, but, obviously, their purpose can be not only torpedoes). It was assumed that these APLSN will, like their predecessors, be the carriers of AGS, and they will obviously carry them, and the SPA, and the new deep-sea large autonomous apparatuses "Harpsichord-2Р", ostensibly having already passed all the tests. It was the “Harpsichord” that flashed in the animation of the President, when he went out of the boat through the hatch in the back, and the boat was exactly Belgorod, very much the characteristic forms of the “loaves” of 949A.
Obviously, the stuffing was intentional, and the “removal of frames” was also to show that everything was supposedly serious. Surprisingly, even in the Russian Federation many experts considered this history an attempt to “throw in a fake” to the Americans, so that they would believe in what we don’t have and started spending money on countering the chimera. And this, despite the fact that fragmentary information about the project was previously. In 2008 The Red Banner Northern Fleet (KSF) introduced the non-nuclear B-90 non-nuclear submarine "Sarov" of the 20120 project, rebuilt from the former "Sargan" project. There were a lot of versions of its use in the media and on the Internet forums. For example, testing a nuclear microreactor as an additional source of energy for non-nuclear submarines in positional maneuvering (instead of fuel cell batteries, electrochemical generators, Stirling engines, and others). Such a project in the USSR was, and it is possible that the rumors around "Sarov" in this part are probably connected with these microreactors - but for the now-known project "Status-6". Someone thought that Sarov would experience underwater drones (and probably this is also true, it’s stupid to build a unique boat for just one task).
Drew attention to the giant port in the bow of the ship, looking like the cover of a huge torpedo tube. And then rumors about a certain OCD Skif (in the West, it was called CANYON) and tests on it at Sarov and specially equipped surface vessels began to spread. Speech hearing makers talked about a family of autonomous large underwater apparatuses with various, including shock functions, both reusable and disposable. Also, by “Skiff”, many meant working on ballistic missiles loaded at the bottom of the PU (and, probably, such a trump card exists and has not yet been played openly).
And then the country's leadership "merged" information on the "Status-6". But unbelievers, probably, even increased (who couldn’t come to their senses from courage and insolence, who from disbelief in the strength of their own country). And it is strange, because such projects are still coming from A.D. Sakharov, who proposed in 1961. project T-15 - torpedo 1500mm caliber and 24m length, only the range is completely different, but with a powerful thermonuclear charge, for the destruction of ports. In 80, in the USSR, there was a conceptual design of the KS (“doomsday”, as black humorists decoded) - a semi-submersible ship with 12 strategic torpedoes with a range of thousands of kilometers and 1000 m depths. And the developer, TsKB "Chernomorsudoproekt" was in Nikolaev, and information about this project could get to the USA, as well as many secrets of the USSR which remained in Ukraine. But they either did not hit, or the United States did not attach any importance to this, and information could only be about the carrier - the torpedo itself was drawn in the RSFSR.
And now, in the 2000s, such projects were remembered, reworked, based on the technical advances of our century, and they started the R & D again. And the Americans themselves, skeptical of what was stated in the "random drain" in 2016. learned, obviously, through intelligence about the successful testing of the prototypes of the Status-6. Or maybe they were given to know this information. And in the media reported this closely related to the Pentagon journalist Bill Hertz. Very informed figure - about the same "Status", he wrote the month for 2-3 before the very "drain" in November 2015. And now Putin himself has told the world about him. But "non-believers of Thomas" will still not die out, even if they see the device live, they will say that this is a mock-up. But, if you believe that presentation, to 2020g. The system should already begin to deploy.
Moreover, it seems that "Status-6" is the program itself, the system as a whole from the carrier, software, home base and SPA, but the device itself does not have a name, since it is invited to give it. And the OCD itself may have a different real name.
Probably the most mysterious, by appointment, of the six represented "trumps" - this is this laser system, with which the President completed his speech. Why is she, and what does she do together with offensive systems such as ICBMs, cruise missiles and giant torpedoes? What is its purpose? There is, of course, no exact answer, because it was not presented, and the streamlined characteristic given by Putin gives some clues. "Significant results have been achieved in the creation of laser weapons. Since last year, combat laser complexes have already been entering the Russian Army." What kind of complexes and for what? Complexes and the truth is, of different purposes, mainly for blinding the equipment of the enemy. But what exactly is this complex for, what was shown on the video by the President?
Here it is necessary to approach the issue comprehensively. Everything shown in the Message refers to weapons that can affect strategic stability. And it applies either to the strategic nuclear forces, or to non-strategic nuclear weapons (tactical), NSNW / TNW, or even in conventional equipment can affect the strategic balance. Or to destroy important sea and ground targets, or to help in breaking through and neutralizing the enemy’s missile defense, or its missile attack warning system, SPRN. Although it’s customary to use the abbreviation SPRIAU as applied to the US SPS, they say that it’s against us, and we don’t attack, we just strike a nuclear strike, in general, a euphemism from the series “our intelligence is their spy” or “their first nuclear strike is our preventive strike at the appointed time. " So this laser complex is not intended to dazzle Tanks and enemy infantry, spoil intelligence equipment aviation, or, say, shoot down UAVs.
So what could make such a laser complex as a strategic weapon? BB MBR and SLBM opponent shoot down? No, this is fantastic, especially from the ground. Maybe to perform the tasks for the defense of the silos of ICBMs from precision conventional weapons? Also not, for this they are equipped with jamming systems and complexes and systems of active protection (one protects from the BB at the final segment, the second from cruise or guided missiles and adjustable bombs). Maybe this laser can disable the tracking equipment of the enemy’s specific reconnaissance satellites? And, at the same time, satellite equipment USA SPRIAU? At the right moment, of course, because such an attack on the orbital grouping of the enemy automatically means war, and is possible only during a war or before its commencement. Moreover, this has already been created earlier - and at the air base. It is clear that this is only an assumption, but the logic in it is visible. But while there is no exact information what this complex is and why it is not - it remains to be guessed.
The ending should ...
