In the footsteps of a fresh demonstration of new products from the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation
Something, in general, was seen, although not as much as we would like, but this is quite understandable, because overseas there are also people who carefully look at such videos, extracting information from there and trying to distinguish it from ". So, the points.
According to Sarmat (the alleged index of the 15А28 rocket) there is nothing fundamentally new in the video. Showing footage of transporting the WPK with a rocket to the silo, where the launch, installation in the mine, and the actual launch launch take place. One of the 3s carried out, although there is an assumption that they were 4, only “partners” could be informed about one launch, as it happens, and not only with “Sarmat”, it was recently with “Yars”, it seems, when NOTAM about There was a launch, but there was no official launch, although some "UFO wrecks" with bolts, according to GOST, did hit the press. At once we’ll clarify that all the Sarmat’s throwing tests were with the launch of the 1-th rocket stage, and not just with the use of the PAD, as such tests usually begin. That is, the developers are so confident in the product that they immediately missed this phase. According to the procedure for installing the product into the mine, nothing particularly new could be seen - and so it is known that for the "Sarmats" there will probably be converted, TPK, left from the XMNX 1518 and 15A18M ICs - approximately one diameter, the same mines, the dimensions are similar, in vain to spend money?
Also shown are old shots from the workshops where Sarmat is assembled, where only narrow specialists can admire a high weight culture of parts, and non-specialists will certainly notice that the names of machine tools and other equipment are smeared in the video. Sanctions, we will not substitute good partners.
But encouraging news is that throwing launches are no longer assumed, the tests go to the flight design stage. The infrastructure for such launches has already been created at the Plesetsk test site and everything is almost ready, so let us reserve patience.
In the video with Avangard, the actual video frames shedding light on something new. On which ICBMs will be initially (later, obviously, on the Sarmats grouping part), the Avangard AGGB is not a secret, these are 15А35 (УР-100НУТТХ), the third-generation ICBM, with this appendage which immediately became the fifth, if not the sixth, complex generations of BRK - combat missile systems of the Strategic Missile Forces. But not a simple 15А35, because they have for many years and can only use them for testing and combat training, and more than three dozen 15А35 purchased at the beginning of 2000's in Ukraine for debts. In the "dry" preserved state, without fuel, that is, all these years the rockets have not "ticked" their age, and they will stay in the silo for a long time, being "rocket special forces" of the Strategic Missile Forces and frightening "partners" with unpleasant consequences. The wisdom and foresight of our military-political leadership in such matters admires. After all, they were certainly purchased for this use, because all these years they were modestly lying in the arsenals and waiting in the wings, and not to "replenish the rapidly thinning rocket group," as the experts wrote then. True, the AGBO itself used to be different, but not so important. Interestingly, our leadership was not so far-sighted with questions of ensuring independence from that Ukraine on shipboard GTDs, although the fact that the situation in the current “wild territory” was heading for something bad — many people, including the very top, understood for a long time and were preparing. Why did this happen?
But in the animation itself (of poor quality, but everything is clear - or you have access to such secrets, but you are not able to make high-quality animation, because you are not so good in the service, or you can, but you cannot see the admission as your ears without a mirror) in the video with the flight of the Avangard Aviation Guard, one moment attracted the attention of the target - it was specifically stated that the Anti-Bomb Canard was able to bypass the zones, in general, it was not a scary missile defense system, using signals from the satellite constellation. That says that the tasks of communication with the device, flying in a dense plasma cloud, are solved by our developers. By the way, this hints that the tasks of targeting a target from such a "cocoon" of plasma for our hypersonic CRPs or CDs and other AGBOs are also completely solvable, namely, in the past few months, they like to point out different unfamiliar comrades in the vastness of informaspace , gentlemen, but most often the same pans.
According to "Poseidon", they finally showed him himself, "without clothes" in the form of a container or something else. Self-propelled underwater vehicle (SPA) "Poseidon" - it continues to be stubbornly called so, obviously because it clearly assumes a significant number of types of combat load, such as thermonuclear warheads of special power for the destruction and pollution of large coastal areas, or large warheads or medium power against ship groups (as was shown in the video) or non-nuclear ones in general, probably, a load in the form of mines or some kind of self-propelled modules with a load, or in general reconnaissance equipment is possible. That is, it is a universal apparatus, and the system itself is called "ocean multi-purpose", including at least two nuclear submarines under construction, the Poseidons themselves and various other underwater Dronesboth reconnaissance and combat. So, he certainly inspires respect with his size. And it is surprising that the data, previously "illuminated", about the caliber of this super torpedo (1500-1600 mm), judging by the video, are incorrect - the real caliber is probably closer to 1800-2000 mm, but the length is just not very different from the declared earlier - 24-25 m. The larger caliber is probably due to the fact that the reactor compartment or the engine compartment came out more overall. Although, according to the video frames, it seems that the overall layout roughly corresponds to the one at that memorable presentation, "accidentally" highlighted at the Security Council of the Russian Federation, and which for a long time was not believed by many either here or in the West. And in vain - Russian propaganda is so deceitful and shameless that it is she who must be believed. Unlike never lying Western media.
About "Dagger" was only recently written, so I will briefly note a number of details. It was reported that the squadron of MiG-31K fighters is in combat-duty duty in the Southern Military District, including performing scheduled flights on duty over the Caspian Sea (maybe over the Black Sea, too, but not told). More than 350 flights have already been performed, including 20% with in-flight refueling (in a previous publication it was suggested that MiG-31B aircraft were used for rework, possibly BM / BCM, as well). The numbers of the cars on the video were covered up, as they could, why - it is not very clear, because many were already glowing and the cars were Ahtubins. Moreover, flights within the framework of duty for non-nuclear strategic deterrence forces were carried out precisely from April 2018. And then it was just the case that could well reach a direct clash with the United States in Syria, so the Daggers were expected to be included in the list of response measures, or rather, their probable application. What already says about the combat readiness of the new weapons. Together with the crews of the Long-Range Aviation, a flight tactical exercise was conducted with the development of practical actions to destroy ground and sea targets. In the course of this exercise, questions of planning, preparation and joint use of the Dagger airborne missile systems and long-range Tu-22М3М missile-carrier bombers, as well as fighter air cover for the actions of the air strike groups, were worked out in detail. Moreover, the flight is shown jointly with the MiG-31K along with the Tu-22М3М bomber with the X-32 anti-ship missile. Obviously, practicing the tactics of sharing, let's say, first, the most dangerous targets are attacking from long range with the MiG-31BK, and then with a smaller one - “Tupolev” with X-32.
The video about the “Petrel” cruise missile of unlimited range also turned out to be quite interesting. According to flight tests, there was nothing new, but they showed TPK with another version of the new rocket. Apparently, this is not quite the same rocket that was shown earlier - the nose of the rocket has “chopped” forms characteristic of measures for reducing EPR, like in ALCM X-101 / X-102 and, presumably, in X-50 (X -SD), as is happening from them. Apparently, on the first prototype, the layout, various solutions, the very possibility of flight of such a revolutionary structure as a nuclear rocket launcher with a nuclear engine, were worked out. A new - closer to the serial product. This, in fact, says the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation.
TPK new rocket is also interesting. And its form, and much more - its fasteners. Which are probably unified with a number of available self-propelled wheeled launchers, including obsolete ones, they will be removed from service and good will not be lost. But it is absolutely clear that the “Petrel” is still far enough away before being put into service.
The “thing in itself” itself remains the same Peresvet combat laser complex, which is already in the army.
The fact that the complex is in the Space Forces (VKS) hints at its combat mission: the defeat of the spacecraft of the enemy’s orbital grouping is probably primarily the specific reconnaissance and space echelon systems of the missile attack or missile defense warning system. Should he destroy them? Not necessarily, disabling the hardware is enough. But, given a number of assumptions about the power and power source of this complex, the power and the destruction, at least in low orbits, may suffice.
So far, all that can (or is) to say as shown, waiting for further disclosure of cards.
