Russia did not stop work on the new RS-28 Sarmat ICBM

The work on the new Sarmat heavy intercontinental ballistic missile was not interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic; preparations for flight tests of ICBMs are on schedule. About this in an interview with RIA News said Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov.


According to the Deputy Prime Minister, all tests will be held within the deadlines set by the developers of the rocket and the Ministry of Defense.

Work is being carried out as planned. At the enterprises involved in the creation of the complex, production processes did not stop. The necessary sanitary and epidemiological measures were taken there, including testing of employees

- said Borisov.

In March of this year, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that Russia was ready for serial production of the latest Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missiles, having carried out an appropriate modernization of enterprises.

At the end of last year, it was reported that the year 2021 was set by the end of flight design tests of the Sarmat ICBMs. In the same 2021, industry will have to master serial production of a new weapons and related systems. In addition, in 2021, the first rocket regiment armed with the Sarmatians will take up combat duty. This will be one of the regiments of the 62 th missile of the Uzhur Red Banner Division of the Strategic Missile Forces. Next, the ICBM will go into service with the Dombarovsk division of the Strategic Missile Forces.

ICBM RS-28 “Sarmat” is being prepared to replace the world's most powerful ICBM of the mine base RS-20В “Voevoda” (NATO - SS-18 “Satan”). It is possible that the rocket will become the carrier of hypersonic Avangard blocks.

Recall that according to the data released during the Army 2019 exhibition, the firing range of the Sarmat ICBMs is 18 thousand kilometers, the starting weight is more than 200 tons, of which 178 tons are fuel. The total length of the rocket is 35,5 m, the diameter is 3 meters. The head part is divided with 10 blocks of individual guidance.

    The end of the tests and the regiment for arming in one year - everything is ready for the series, although in the current situation this speed may not grow together in finances

        Sarmat has a range of 18000 km.
        This range allows you to hit targets on any trajectory.
        Not only through the North, but also through the South Pole.
        The US missile defense was designed to protect against missiles from the North.
        Well, the means to overcome missile defense are much better than on the Voivode.
        No one has anything like this yet. hi

        Sarmat will be installed in the mines of Voivode. So their sizes
        are the same.

          Well, it replaces the Voivode. The difference in the cast weight. It is slightly larger for the Voivode, but Sarmat can cover a greater distance, more accurate, passes through the anti-missile shield and can stay longer in the air. It can carry Vanguard blocks. and the weight cast by yes, it is slightly less than that of the Governor. but it’s not scary ... it’s scary where his head will go. People have been unable to live there for a hundred years.

      and if she has modern gunpowder ...

      So it is "liquid", what kind of gunpowder? And a liquid-propellant rocket with equal useful masses and flight range is usually much lighter than a solid-propellant one. In both cases, there are both positive and negative sides. For a liquid-propellant rocket, such a disadvantage was the presence of dangerous fuel, but over the past decades, the production technology and operation have already been well developed. For example, the R-29RM missiles and its modifications for the entire service period (soon 40 years) had no incidents or accidents associated with the product at all. The "hard" missiles have a shorter prelaunch and active phase. There thrust vector control is more confusing. Storage requirements are strict everywhere. There is more likely even a question of technology development. In Russia, it is better to do "liquid", the Americans - "solid".

    Rudolf! Even if the tests pass "without a hitch, without a hitch", then at least 4-5 tests were going to be carried out. On the nose - June 2020. Test, then, if necessary, modify, test again ... Unless the tests will be completed on December 15, 2021, and it will be put into service on December 25, 2021. It is too presumptuous to make such temporary statements.

    Friends! DO NOT knock on spoons. We do not know how much Sarmat is different from the Voivode. If, for example, borrowing elements is high, then there is a backlog for assembly work. And we are not familiar with the Test Program and Test Procedures. Not knowing the timing and scope of the tests, we are trying to assess the situation. But aren't we insolent?

    Of course no. The first source - "unnamed" generally allows you to carry any nonsense, hiding behind anonymity. The last source - "Wikipedia" - although it is a fairly mobile resource, but sometimes they carry such a blizzard ...
    So to speak. Data is an analysis of open sources (if you know how to work with such sources and what criteria to use). Plus work experience (with sources of information). Plus knowledge of how such products were tested. And even though now the number of tests may be 5-10 times less than before, but still 3-4-5 tests cannot be done. Especially when you consider how Sarmat is positioned ...
    In addition, the GRTS them. Makeeva DOESN'T EXPERIENCE products with a starting weight of 150-200 tons. And experience is gained by testing. But not only need to shoot the product, but also analyze the results and, if necessary, make changes.

    Production is ready, modernization of production is carried out. Here are just the missiles themselves in the flight version yet. There were only throwing tests ... And the first test specimen may differ from the last test rocket.

    Is different. These two missiles were created by different design bureaus. Each has its own "chips". In particular, the GRC products are distinguished by a denser layout. Borrowed elements? The main thing that distinguishes "Sarmat" from "Voevoda" is different engines, a different control system, probably different combat stages. The scope of tests is most often if they differ from each other - then not so significantly. You will need tests with various combat equipment, launches at the minimum and maximum distance.

Through the North Pole, as well as when shooting to the east or west, from the same Uzhur, 11-12 thousand kilometers of range is enough. And through the South Pole .... Only to Antarctica from Uzhur about 15,5 thousand kilometers. In order to "cover" the Americans through the South Pole, a range of about 30 km is required. What's the point of shooting across the South Pole? The head will fly to the target almost twice as long as when shooting through the North Pole. In addition, the throw weight will be almost three times less. Meaning?

    And in the next 50 years will not. For almost all countries, except for such a powerful nuclear missile power, like North Korea, are already moving away from the creation of missiles, especially ICBMs with liquid propellants. Even Iran is trying to make all its latest developments solid fuel. China is also switching to solid fuels. Given the fact that North Korea is far from an ICBM equal to the "Sarmat" - no one has anything like this yet and will not

    Quote: Andrew NM
    And a liquid rocket with equal payloads and flight ranges is usually much lighter than solid propellant.

    The numbers are about the same order. An ICBM 15A20 with a launching point of 50.1 tons and a launch capacity of 1,2 tons carries a maximum of 3BB for a range of up to 12000 km. The same "Yars" with a starting line of 47,2 tons and a throw of 1,2 tons carries 3-4 heads for the same range. Moreover, it is 3 tons lighter. So liquid fuel is "not much lighter" than solid fuel of the same class ... At least on one level ...
