The Russian Ministry of Defense conducted a successful test of a modernized missile defense system. The launch was made by combat crews of the air and missile defense forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces at the Sary-Shagan test site in Kazakhstan, according to the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Russian Defense Ministry.


VKS conducted a successful test of a modernized missile defense system


As explained in the Russian military department, the new upgraded missile defense system does not yet have a name, only a alphanumeric name. This launch of the rocket is not the first, previously the rocket has already been launched and, after a series of tests, reliably confirmed the inherent characteristics.

Launched a rocket successfully completed the task, hitting the target with a given accuracy. Pledged specifications confirmed
- said the commander of the anti-missile defense complex VKS Colonel Sergey Grabchuk

New Russian antimissile began to be tested only last year, according to TC Zvezda. At the same time, it is claimed that this is the first rocket in the last few decades, which in terms of the intensity of test launches at the Sary-Shagan test site has broken all records.

It is assumed that the rocket will go into service with the A-235 air defense and missile defense system, which is being created to replace the A-135, covering Moscow and the Central region of Russia.

          In reality, there was such an embarrassment at a time when all the structures of the strategic missile defense subordinated the Strategic Missile Forces, the command was shown a missile launch in familiarization order, there was a scandal, because no one had visually traced the missile itself, the authorities thought that instead of a real launch they had been shown an imitation and were very indignant .. accustomed to conventional ICBMs, but didn’t have this concept (secrecy at missile defense facilities has always been prohibitive).

                  I'm sitting here writing a summary.

                  17 November, in a guarded parking lot of equipment located inside the farm building on the northern outskirts of Mariupol, a fire occurred. It was not possible to extinguish the fire operatively; only fire brigades that arrived late were able to localize it.
                  As a result of this incident was destroyed:
                  - 130-mm self-propelled ATGM 9п149 "Sturm-S" - 1 units;
                  - anti-tank supersonic rocket 9m114 "Cocoon" - 20 units;
                  - trigger 9п519 to MANPADS “Igla” - 1 units;
                  - 9m39 anti-aircraft guided missile for Igla MANPADS - 2 units;
                  - car "KAMAZ-5320" - 1 units;
                  - car "Gas-66" - 1 units;
                  - car "UAZ" - 2 units;
                  - as well as dozens of radio stations, body armor and helmets stored in trucks.

                      29 November, at 18:15 in the area of ​​the settlement Sokolniki, a meaningless attempt was made to advance the AFG DRG. In the course of conducting sabotage and reconnaissance operations, a group of up to 20 people advanced towards our positions and was blown up by minefields.
                      As a result, at least five people were killed and eight injured. The rest, after being blown up in panic, opened indiscriminate firing and withdrew in a hurry.

      While these missiles will only stand in the circle of Moscow, Trump and everyone else in Washington will not care. The United States withdrew from the ABM agreement 15 years ago and is now deploying these systems not only at home, but also at its allies, along with nuclear weapons.
      What is stopping Russia from covering its allies with the latest missile defense systems, naturally at their expense? The need has long been ripe for the creation of a global missile defense system within the framework of the SCO countries. Moreover, India, China, Pakistan and Iran are in real danger and will not spare any means to deploy a global missile defense system that will bring to zero all American ambitions and threats to the countries of the Eurasian region.

      Judging by the migration of the population to Moscow, it is. Soon all of Russia will fit in the Moscow region! Well, as a last resort, Peter, Moscow, Rostov, Sochi. Well, what! There are almost as many Japanese as there are Russians, but they live in a very limited territory! So are the Russians. What to be scattered throughout Russia, will be collected compactly, as in reservations. It’s not for nothing that they voiced the idea of ​​splitting into 14 regions with two megacities in the region! So there will be such modern reservations in the style of Hi-Tech.

          The question is not inventing megacities. Here the question is in the trends. There is an opinion that the matter is about blurring and disappearance of borders. There will be no national entities. It goes to megacities as competitors of national entities. It is economically more profitable to develop a compact territory than a region or region. The economic benefits of megacities are calculated. This is from five to twenty million inhabitants. Therefore, it is more profitable to drive the entire population into megacities than to develop the region. Apologists of megalopolises assure that soon they will compete not between countries, but megalopolises.

          This is already a given. Greater Moscow is a reality, as is Greater Paris, Greater London, etc. With the construction of highways, the same Tula will become part of Greater Moscow.
          And forty years ago, Greater Moscow, the Moscow agglomeration already existed. Surprisingly, in the early 10s, sparsely populated areas were included in Moscow. And those cities like Khimki, which have long merged with Moscow, have been left in the Moscow region.

      Judging by the migration of the population to Moscow, it is. Soon all of Russia will fit in the Moscow region!

      Unfortunately, there is a serious problem associated with high ionization of the atmosphere. Indeed, under normal conditions, a missile defense will confidently intercept a single unit, perhaps even a group with some probability. But after the first interception, the radioactive cloud sprayed in the upper atmosphere will create problems for the passage of radio waves, which will make it impossible to intercept warheads that will be in the second and third tier. And taking into account the prospect of the United States withdrawing from the INF Treaty, the only way to secure the military-political leadership of the state, strategic enterprises and research centers is to transfer the capital from Moscow to the Urals, preferably closer to China with which in the future to create a global missile defense system.

          Make everyone recognize Crimea? And what will change? Crimea will become more Russian? Maybe right thereafter, tourist services will be like in Turkey?

          Make Europeans work for the Russian economy? Do you need technology?

          Empty words are all that. I’ll say more - these are the thoughts of a typical Ukrainian. Submit a freebie.

          One must live with one’s own mind and one’s own labor. And no Europe, let alone the United States, helps anyone but themselves.

    Our umbrella is a vigorous argument, ready to fly back!
    However, striped the same thing.
    No one will stop a massive attack ....
    An umbrella, from random / airborne, piece missiles .... you can still have satellites that are closer to beat, there are not so many of them, the most harmful.
    And the rocket, modern and effective, is an ice!
    WMS will be the argument / argument in the dispute, but only a lot of them are needed ... expensive, long ......

    This is another matter, well done developers, it maintains balance, Russia must also make money from the army to strengthen the ruble exchange rate to build large global financial centers like the United States to create a brand to aggressively promote politics but respecting justice. If all the laws of Allah are respected, then Russia will be powerful and rich, yet we will not take anything in this world; if Russia accepts the last religion of Allah, not only Russia but all countries, then everyone will be happy, all the same, our enemy is the shaitan and his followers.

    it looks more like a shot than a missile launch. I wonder what kind of fuel is there and how much it costs. Explicitly not 3 kopecks.

    They covered Moscow, but how are the other million-plus cities? Are we going to shoot down anti-aircraft guns?

    What prevents Russia from covering its allies with the latest missile defense systems, naturally at their expense?

    There are many reasons.
    Reason # 1 - And which of the allies to cover? CSTO members? So there arises problem number 2 - their lack of money ...
    Reason # 3 - the lack of systems similar to those that the United States currently has. In the future, we may have something and we will, but not now

    Quote: Vita VKO
    The need has long been ripe for the creation of a global missile defense system within the framework of the SCO countries.

    The probability of this event is not only close to zero, it is a negative value. At the same time, you can try on Azerbaijan with Armenia. Or Pakistan and India ???

    Quote: Vita VKO
    Moreover, India, China, Pakistan and Iran are in real danger and will not spare any means to deploy a global missile defense system that will bring to zero all American ambitions and threats to the countries of the Eurasian region.

    For Pakistan, the enemy is primarily not the United States (as indeed for India), but India. And for India, the enemy No. 1 is Pakistan, and not the United States
    China has its own missile defense experience. They already have a tactical missile defense system based on their missile systems. And for Iran, we must fit in fully ???

    Quote: Tiksi-3
    these umbrellas do not cover the cities of the Americans but the silo ICBMs.

    They covered the mines from the moment they were put on combat duty for exactly ONE YEAR. The Safeguard missile defense system was mothballed in 1976 ... the current strategic missile defense system is generally designed to intercept at a distance of several thousand kilometers from US territory.

    Quote: Ascetic
    It is planned to integrate this new system into a single field with the S-500, which will make it possible to have an umbrella not only in the Central Development Commission, but also in other strategically important regions and in the long run over the entire country and the neighboring CSTO countries.

    What will be the S-500 system, Stanislav, is still unknown. Most likely, this will be a system adapted to intercept aerodynamic targets and the ability to intercept ballistic targets, and the capabilities of such interception will be slightly more advanced compared to the same S-400 system. It is unlikely that this system (judging by open data) will be capable of intercepting intercontinental missiles. Most likely only MRBM. This means that it is unlikely that it will be possible to make an "umbrella" over the entire territory of the country, and even more so over neighboring countries. Countries armed with MRBMs have North Korea, China, Iran, India, Pakistan, Israel ... From whom will this system be protected ?? And who? To do this, it will be necessary to place this system on the territory of neighboring countries, to place it in Armenia to protect Azerbaijani missiles and on the territory of Azerbaijan from Armenian missiles ????

    If only we could build a Pro, which 100% merges the strategic potential of the United States into the toilet, and the West could dictate any conditions

    Creating such a missile defense system is impossible in principle. The creation of such a system launches an arms race. For this reason, a missile defense agreement was concluded. At the same time, an WWS agreement was concluded.
    It is much easier and simpler to build up strike potential than to create an impenetrable missile defense system. It is easier to "load" ICBMs with additional warheads than to deploy a new position with anti-missiles, radars and all the infrastructure ...

    Quote: Mountain Shooter
    Good, fast rocket. This is against the ICBMs.

    This is the development of the 53T6 missile defense. This missile is the last echelon of intercepting warheads of ICBMs. The speed is great, although her range is a couple of hundred kilometers. The specificity of the engine is such that there is not just burning solid fuel, the burning rate is such that it is actually a controlled explosion ...

    as far as is known, the test rocket has either a high-explosive or kinetic warhead
