Global warhead delivery range. Sarmat today and tomorrow

62

Russian Strategic Rocket Forces celebrate their 60th anniversary with new work aimed at increasing combat effectiveness and maintaining combat potential. In this context, the project of a promising complex with the RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental missile is of particular importance. Now preparations are underway for a new stage of testing, and in a few years the finished sample will go into service.


According to the commander in chief ...


The latest information about the status and prospects of the Sarmat project was recently announced by Colonel General Sergei Karakaev, Commander of the Strategic Missile Forces. An interview with him was published on December 16 in The Red Star.

According to S. Karakaev, preparations are underway for conducting state flight tests of a new rocket. In addition, the leading military universities are already studying the characteristics, design and capabilities of the new complex.

The leading enterprise in the serial production of Sarmatov will be the Krasnoyarsk Machine-Building Plant. Now it is modernizing the production base, due to which new tasks will be solved in the future.

The Commander-in-Chief reaffirmed that the first new weapon will receive the 62nd missile Uzhursky Red Banner Division (Krasnoyarsk Territory). According to previous reports, now they are preparing to receive promising missiles there.

The new-generation Sarmat complex is intended to replace the older R-36M2 Voyevoda systems. As mass production, modern missiles will replace existing products on duty. Strategic Missile Forces extend the life of R-36M2 missiles, for which purpose in the GRTs im. Makeeva is carrying out the corresponding development work. The GRC project will allow keeping the Voivode on duty until the advent of a modern replacement.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Strategic Missile Forces recalled the characteristic advantages of the new Sarmat missile. In terms of basic characteristics, it should not be inferior to the previous sample, but in other respects it is superior to it. A wider range of military equipment is also provided, from a number of existing warheads to promising hypersonic systems.


Sarmat missile deliveries will have to affect the general state of the Strategic Missile Forces weapons. So, in 2024, the share of modern designs is planned to be brought up to 100%. Old Soviet-made systems will be completely decommissioned, and only newer missiles will remain in service, including "Sarmat."

Plans for the future


According to well-known data, the technical design of the Sarmat complex has now been completed. Last year, a full throw test cycle was conducted. After this, preparation for flight tests began, which continues to this day. The timing of the first full launch has not yet been specified.

Last year, the Strategic Missile Forces command indicated that the first production Sarmatians would be deployed by the 62nd Missile Division. Now it continues to operate the aging R-36M2 missiles, but is already preparing to receive modern RS-28s. The command plans to put on duty the first "Sarmat" in 2021. Then, in a few years, all "Voivode" connections will be decommissioned with replacement.

Earlier, open sources mentioned the future rearmament of the 13th missile Orenburg Red Banner Division. Like the 62nd Missile Division, it is now armed with R-36M2 systems that need to be replaced. Arming new systems is expected in the early twenties.

Within a few years, probably by the second half of the twenties, two missile divisions would finally abandon the well-deserved but outdated Voevoda ICBMs. They will be replaced by modern RS-28 with higher characteristics, capable of providing a number of new capabilities to the Strategic Missile Forces.

However, before starting mass production and putting on duty, it is necessary to conduct flight tests and carry out fine-tuning of equipment. This will take some time, but so far there is no reason for a serious revision of the work schedule. Apparently, the 62nd Missile Division will indeed receive the Sarmatians in 2021.


Strength issues


The Russian Ministry of Defense has not yet announced its plans regarding the number of Sarmatians required. This led to the emergence of various forecasts and estimates. In addition, data allegedly from foreign intelligence is known.

So, in July, the American CNBC channel, citing the US intelligence community, spoke about the Strategic Missile Forces plans to receive at least 60 new ICBMs. At the same time, it was argued that Sarmat will be able to be brought to combat duty already in 2020 - up to the deadlines previously mentioned by officials.

Information from U.S. intelligence does not yet have official confirmation, but it looks quite believable. It is this number of missiles that is necessary to replace the existing R-36M2 in two divisions in the proportion of “1: 1”, and also, possibly, to create a small reserve.

According to open data, about three dozen silo-based ICBMs can now be deployed in the 13th and 62nd missile divisions. Thus, the use of existing facilities will replace almost 60 old Voevod with the same number of new Sarmatians. In addition, a certain number of missiles should go into arsenals to create a reserve for the future. However, estimates of foreign intelligence may differ from the real plans of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces.

Political factor


At the moment, the development of Russian strategic nuclear forces, including Strategic Rocket Forces, taking into account the limitations of the Treaty on the Reduction of Offensive Arms (START III). This document will be valid until February 2021 - unless Russia and the United States extend it or work out a new agreement. Further developments in the area of ​​strategic nuclear forces directly depend on the decisions of Moscow and Washington.

START III imposes restrictions on the number of nuclear weapons carriers (general and deployed), as well as on the number of warheads. The formation of strategic nuclear forces is carried out in a given framework. Taking advantage of this, countries are constantly forming and changing the configuration of their forces. The absence of restrictions on the IOS-III will give them the opportunity to uncontrolled build up arsenals.


It is also necessary to remember the third countries that are not part of the existing Russian-American agreements, but that have nuclear weapons. They also have to be considered a potential threat that should be considered when planning.

If START III is not extended or replaced, the first stage of deployment of the RS-28 ICBMs will be in a very difficult period. Our country will have to closely monitor the former partners in the agreement and respond to their actions. One of the answers to the growth of foreign strategic nuclear forces may be an increase in the number of own missiles on duty.

According to well-known data, Sarmat, being a heavy-class rocket, must show high performance. Stated "global" range of delivery of warheads. The warhead can carry at least a dozen combat guidance units of individual guidance. Also, the RS-28 will become the carrier of the Avangard hypersonic percussion apparatus. All this makes Sarmat a convenient and flexible tool to deter a potential adversary - both for the Strategic Missile Forces and within the framework of all strategic nuclear forces.

In the case of maintaining the offensive arms treaty, Sarmat will be entrusted with the task of updating the materiel, including with the growth of combat capabilities. In this context, all the special capabilities of the rocket will also be more than useful.

Waiting for new items


It is obvious that in a few years our strategic missile forces will receive completely new weapons with special capabilities that can significantly affect defense capability. However, to obtain such results, you need to carry out a lot of important work. So far, the state’s flight tests of the rocket remain the main item on the agenda. Only after that, “Sarmat” can be transferred to the troops and put on combat duty.

The process of developing and finalizing a new missile complex is taking place against the backdrop of a deteriorating international situation, breaking agreements and certain risks. All this requires improving the strategic nuclear forces and strategic missile forces in response to new challenges. One of the main answers of this kind will be the expected XNUMX% renewal of arms of the strategic missile forces, and the new Sarmat is its most important component.

    Yeah! If the chief of the General Staff expressly declares that NATO is preparing for a major war, then it is necessary to rearm no matter what, and as quickly as possible.
    Two world wars did not teach the West anything. It is hard to imagine that the authorities of the countries of Europe do not understand that they certainly will not survive the third world war - in orderly rows to death to the accompaniment of the United States.

            “In the Baltic countries and Poland, the waters of the Black and Baltic Seas, military activity is increasing, the intensity of military exercises of the bloc is increasing. Their scenarios indicate NATO's targeted preparation for the use of its troops in a large-scale military conflict, "he (Gerasimov) said ...."
            In fact, all the armies of the world are preparing for conflicts of varying intensity. The combat training of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is also carried out to bring and maintain the readiness of troops to participate in a war / conflict of any scale. NATO today primarily plays the role of removing extraneous production structures in the development of the budgets of the member countries of the bloc. Their teachings primarily aim at the psychological treatment of the population (escalating psychosis from military danger) in order to not resist the authorities in increasing contributions to the military budget. Of course, according to the parameters of the armed forces, we cannot be obviously weaker so as not to give rise to temptation. The speech of our chief of the General Staff is the traditional reaction of officials to the actions of the enemy side. Something like a protest by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry on Putin's visit to Crimea.

          And this is not the question. It’s different: usually talking about how, in the case of TMV, on the other side of the trench, all in orderly rows will go to the other world - for some reason it’s not customary to remember that the same thing will happen on this side of the trench. Here you are, for some reason, adding funny pictures with slender rows, is limited to half-truth. And Gerasimov concluded that NATO was preparing for a large-scale conflict on the basis of the intensity and scale of their exercises. But, excuse me, we have complete order with this, too; are they not alone, it turns out, they are preparing, and do not remember the experience of the past?

            But here is something I have not heard about the concept of a preemptive strike by the nuclear nucleon. From the word in general.

              Well, firstly, the concept may not be due to the lack of an appropriate tool. In the sense that in the USA, strategic nuclear forces are traditionally more focused on delivering a counter-force strike (although they can, of course, be applied simply to cities). In our country, the BBQ of the BB is considered lower (I don’t know how it really is there). If this is so, then it is logical that in the absence of the ability to confidently increase the enemy’s silos - it makes no sense to consider concepts based on this possibility. Secondly, this is about the preemptive strike by nuclear nucleon. Our doctrine implies the possibility of using nuclear weapons in response to aggression against the Russian Federation (or allies) without the use of nuclear weapons. Yes, there are a number of conditions. But as a fact: we can very well use nuclear weapons first, i.e. preventively.

                Will you argue with American generals? Well, the first come across -
                "The United States should not abandon its policy of delivering a preemptive nuclear strike," said General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, at a hearing in the US Senate.

                  And you can reference their regulatory documents, which says: under what conditions can this preventive strike be inflicted? And then in the parliament and we have inadequate comrades who offer, for example, to drop YaB on Istanbul. Regarding our doctrine:
                  The Russian Federation reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear and other types of weapons of mass destruction against it and (or) its allies, as well as in the event of aggression against the Russian Federation with the use of conventional weapons, when the very existence of the state is threatened

                  Well, if you read the same drop-shot, then the idea that the bloodthirsty Anglo-Saxons have been planning to attack us for centuries will not become so obvious. It turns out that the plan proceeds from the fact that by 1957 NATO will be at war with the socialist camp. It is not specified: who attacked first, but it points to the desire of the communist leaders to expand in Europe, and the need to defend this very Europe, and at the same time Turkey and Japan. The usual plan in case "if tomorrow is war". Do you want to say that the Union did not engage in military planning?

                      There is no need to build illusions - this question was discussed, at least at the General Staff precisely, because military experts are well aware that if the preparation for a nuclear strike on our territory is revealed, then it does not make sense to wait for the reaction of the SPRN systems, but it’s better to strike yourself though would be the duty forces of the strategic nuclear forces. Then we will at least have a chance to survive, thanks to the size of our territory.
                      Here is what Burlakov stated in an interview:
                      So prepared for the war in the early 1980s? - Not just prepared, but were ready! Marshal Ogarkov created four strategic directions for leading the offensive war. The western one was in the Polish Legnica, and then in Smolensk, the south-western one was in Chisinau, the southern one in Baku, the Far Eastern, Chinese in Ulan-Ude. Hungary (Southern Group) was in one direction with the Kiev and Odessa districts. We had to smash the south of Europe, including Italy. The General Staff has these plans. These samples may once be needed, everything is thought out there, although it needs to be clarified.
                      - Was the use of nuclear weapons planned? - Of course.
                      “Would we be the first to hit?” - Of course.

                      - Foreign Minister Gromyko repeated that the USSR would not be the first to use nuclear weapons. - He said one thing, but the military had other thoughts. We have to answer for the war.
                      - Isn't the political leadership responsible for this? - The political leadership - Gorbachev and others - betrayed the Union. They were bought in America.

    The Strategic Missile Forces is our everything, which means that we should spare no money on the modernization and development of new weapons, according to the precepts of Peter the Great.
    By the way, the development of such expensive complexes that can be created only by 2-3 countries of the world, and explains to our whiners where the huge revenues from the sale of gas and oil go.

            Young people also do not live happily, even in fat Moscow. So let's see.

            You don’t even understand that it’s not even the fat life of some regions, but that with the rejection of socialism, we excluded a number of social lifts that allowed people from all walks of life to become major leaders, academicians, engineers and scientists, which means our society will degrade. This is the main danger to our civilization, so at least first understand this before you see the reason in the "fat piece" of some part of the youth.

    Is not a fact. Features may vary. If we take as a basis the rockets of the R-36M family of all 6 modifications, then the longest from the shortest one differs by a value of 90 itself. And on average, it’s 30 centimeters. The question is different. we ABSOLUTELY NOTHING we do not know about the real characteristics of the "Sarmat". What they are broadcasting to us is, I beg your pardon, a shaking of air. Each analyst gives his own interpretation. And the apo range, and in the starting and throwing. And at the same time, everyone "looks back" at the characteristics of the "Voevoda"
    And according to individual insider statements, "Sarmat" will still differ from "Voevoda" in starting and thrown weight towards a decrease in these masses, and in terms of its energy, acceleration characteristics, the characteristics of "Sarmat" will be better than those of "Voevoda". But this will become clear only after the first test launches. When real missiles will be tested, and not their throw models.

    We will see. Will they be able to conduct a test launch of "Sarmat" in the remaining 2 weeks, or will its tests be shifted to the right again ...

        So the fact is that Sarmat is the weapon of the first blow. Sarmat will not be able to perform the functions of a weapon of retaliation, because will most likely be destroyed. Sarmat can take part in a "retaliatory" strike, but one must understand that, in general, modern strategists and analysts doubt the possibility of such a strike. For a variety of reasons.
        And the rocket is very powerful. Therefore, it will attract the means of observing the enemy.
        In my opinion, the concept of such a rocket is outdated, we have not the time of the XB.

    What they believed in the 80s and what they think now are completely different calculations. In the 80s, we had about 30 strategic warheads, now 000. Accordingly, the number of carriers will be adjusted downward.
    About the interception. This thing in itself and even now, intercepting is problematic. It all depends on the quantity. Intercepting 1-2 missiles is, in principle, possible. And to intercept, for example, 2-3 dozens, especially missiles with homing missiles, are impossible at the current level of development of missile defense systems.
    The number of goals can, in principle, be calculated. Very roughly, but nonetheless. And after all, not only heavy missiles will hit the enemy’s targets.

    Well, in fact, Dmitry is not so wrong. The vulnerability of silos is still higher than that of the PGRK. The second still needs to be "found" in the vastness of Russia, and not easy to find. And strike. But as long as the missile (even a ballistic one) is flying, the launcher will be able to leave a sufficient distance.
    Moreover, one should not think that silos are a panacea and silos cannot be destroyed. In principle, the calculations of the same Americans come down to the fact that 2 BB is enough to defeat the mine, which will make it impossible to launch.
    As for the KAZ ... Yes, such a system was tested at one time, then as far as we know, it was not put into service. And again, how effective it will be is also unknown. And what to do if the warhead explodes at an altitude not of 5-6 km, where it can be, as you say, "cut into pieces," but for example at an altitude of 6,5 km.
    Issues of defeating the silo protective device - an interesting question and existing materials show that, in principle, the shaft cover can be hit by 2 HE explosive charges of 2 tons. Problem? Yes, of course, but nonetheless this is possible.
    Therefore, the issue of vulnerability is a separate issue. Although I repeat, the fame of the coordinates of silos makes them more vulnerable than the vulnerability of mobile systems

    In the 80s, we had about 30 strategic warheads,

    Well, you grabbed it over the edge - there were about 6-7 thousand of them. There were also tactical and operational nuclear charges, so the total could have been, but I think it was actually even less.

    You're right. Almost 30 thousand are all. And strategists - less than 9000 EMNIP

    Quote: Essex62 The sense of such a contract is zero. To control the implementation of it, mattresses, there will not be any possibility. That is, you do not care if 1500 charges or 7500 are against you? And about the control. At 19 inspections per year is not enough for you? And here the Olympics are not at all the case ...

    Do you personally participate in these inspections, guarantee the accuracy of the data provided? Or just believe? Me not. There are too many factors that deny the ability to butt and control mattresses on equal terms. Only the USSR could do it. To express concern is the maximum of the bourgeois, dependent power of the Russian Federation. And Olympics, under a white capitulant rag, is one of the indicators.
    One charge for my eyes is enough for me, and, in principle, yes, it doesn’t matter. None of the missile defense systems can stop the destruction of the population, the adversary has the advantage, he will be the first to start. Only Masonic families will survive in the bunkers on the atolls, only because they will climb in there beforehand, having given the command to attack. Not one berg can be saved. Burned, with all the loot stolen, along with everyone.

    According to open data, now in the 13th and 62nd missile divisions, about three dozen silo-based ICBMs can be deployed. Thus, the use of the existing facilities will make it possible to replace almost 60 old Voevods with the same number of new Sarmats.

    Why lie so stupidly? Easy to check. 46 of them in total.

    The declared "global" range for the delivery of warheads.

    Lies. Nothing is official not It was declared with numbers in any case. The global range of destruction is from 23000 km practical. range minimum.
