Military Review

60 years to the Strategic Missile Forces

56

In 1997, the Union of Strategic Rocket Forces, the Military Space Forces and the Air Defense Forces of the Russian Armed Forces took place in Russia. The result of this association is the unified Strategic Missile Forces, whose troops today (December 17) celebrate their professional holiday.


In 2019, the Strategic Missile Forces - anniversary: ​​the troops will celebrate 60 years. Their formation took place in 1959 on the basis of the Decree of the USSR Council of Ministers with the creation of the post of Commander-in-Chief of the Missile Forces and the formation of the main headquarters of the Strategic Missile Forces.

Over its 60th anniversary history Strategic Missile Forces remain troops that have never been used for their intended purpose - as a use of nuclear force. However, the potential of the Strategic Missile Forces is such that it is it that allows us to maintain a global balance of forces, to cool hotheads in which there are plans for a possible attack on our country. And this potential is steadily increasing.

So, the other day it became known about the progress of successful tests of the promising Sarmat missile system, the introduction of which into the Strategic Missile Forces should begin in the near future. We are talking about unique weapons, the divided warhead of which is a set of hypersonic blocks with individual guidance. There is not (and is unlikely to exist in the coming years) a single version of a missile defense system that could cope with the Russian Sarmat.

Equipment of units and formations of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation of the Yars PGRK continues, the development of the infrastructure of the Strategic Missile Forces is part of a large-scale project of modernization and rearmament of the Russian army.

"Military Review" congratulates the military and veterans of the Strategic Missile Forces on their professional holiday!

        I remember my father watched some kind of program where rocket mines were destroyed. Floors to the bottom, some points, etc.
        The late grandmother came up and looked at the TV:
        - ... Have you been there?
        - Mum! I didn’t get out of there! ...)

          Once I managed to look into the mine, during routine maintenance before retrieving the rocket. The impressions are still the same. And already on demobilization, in the news, a couple of years later, I saw a plot of how the guard of our regiment was "torn apart" (it seems the sixth), it became so offensive .... And the nature there is lovely, the Southern Bug is very beautiful.

            Hello Crimea. I was too. In 1992, the missiles were taken out with missilemen to the Yuzhmash in Dnepropetrovsk for disposal. SG service.

          When I was in Usrain, I saw alive how the objects of the 4th Air Army were torn apart. I took missiles for recycling. Something is true from UR-100, "Molodets", R-36, R-29 - they were taken to the Russian Federation. Mainly for gas debts and other energy resources. I saw with my own eyes how DBA planes were flying in Poltava. Caught the collapse of the MRAD in the Crimea. But let's not talk about sad things on such a day.

    For many ... for many more years, our VKS and Strategic Missile Forces will guarantee our security against an external enemy.
    Although the enemy beats the drums of war near our borders, I’m sure of the ability of our rocket men to show them Kuzkin’s mother at the right time.
    I wish our valiant Strategic Rocket Forces and the airborne forces good luck and success in their military business.

    Happy holiday, my dear fellow students, colleagues and all the Strategic Missile Forces veterans! We will not forget those who first mastered the formidable weapon, the first to bear the hardships of combat duty, the hardest training in combat positions, in campaigns at secret positions then, and also carried out combat training missile launches at training grounds. I would like to recall the first commander-in-chief of the Strategic Missile Forces, Mitrofan Nedelin, who died tragically at a test site during a rocket test. We will not forget those rocket launchers that now, today, these minutes are at combat posts in deep underground bunkers behind the launch panels of modern deadly missiles. Good health, strong spirit and vigilance while on duty!

      rocket troops were allocated in a separate form as early as 57 - according to warrant officers from 86 "they went because of secrecy in blue, black and red (?) shoulder straps."
      the structure has already been created from different parts — troops, but not formatted yet.

    The Caribbean crisis was the peak of the threat of using these forces.
    May God grant him that and remain.
    He also forced the Americans to send all sorts of blunt plans like "Dropshot" to the archives and play other games.
    And until now, even in the days of the "saints of the 90s," only our triad, and the Strategic Missile Forces in particular, remained a real factor that preserved Russia.
    Not even thanks to the country's leadership, but rather in spite of it. The rocketeers, earning money on three jobs, without receiving any salary, still went on duty, and chased with ... brooms all kinds of "power engineers" of the Chubais type, trying to de-energize our units "for non-payment."
    These are real patriots - not athletes without a flag and anthem, waving a chair.

    In 1997, the Union of Strategic Rocket Forces, the Military Space Forces and the Air Defense Forces of the Russian Armed Forces took place in Russia. The result of this association is a single strategic missile force,

    In fact, already in 2001, the reverse separation occurred - Marshal-missile-raiser I.D. Sergeev resigned.
    They raised today for those on duty, for veterans, a third - who are not with us ...

    Be good.

    I will throw some tar in a barrel of honey ... That year, they just wanted to break up the missile forces under the guise of reorganization, etc.
    Thank God they managed to save at least something ..
    With the Strategic Rocket Forces holiday, after you silence heh heh .. And only thanks to you Russia still exists !!!!!

    In one of the books on the Strategic Missile Forces (I don’t remember the name) there was a quatrain as an epigraph:
    "I trust you, Rocket Forces
    His country of lakes, pristine bowls
    And my father’s gray hair
    And the sweet dream of our little daughter
    I trust you, Rocket Forces "
