24 of the year since the accession to combat duty in the Strategic Missile Forces missile systems "Voevoda"

In the Dombarovsk missile compound (Orenburg region) 30 on July 1988, the first missile regiment with the missile system (RK) RS-20V "Voevoda" (according to the Western SS-18 classification "Satan") took up combat duty.


Up to the present, the RS-20В remains the world's most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the press service and information department of the Russian Defense Ministry said.

In June, the 1979 of the year in Yuzhnoye Design Bureau, under the direction of General Designer V.Utkin, developed a technical proposal for the Voevoda missile system with a heavy fourth-generation ICBM. In June 1982 of the year, a preliminary design of the Republic of Kazakhstan with the RS-20В (Р-36М2) rocket was executed. The flight tests of the rocket were conducted from March 1986 of the year to March of the year 1988. The missile system was put into service on August 11 1988.

The Voyevoda missile system with the P-36М2 rocket is designed to defeat all types of strategic targets protected by modern anti-missile defense systems (PRO) in any conditions of combat use.

The rocket has a maximum range of 11500 km with a launch mass of more than 210 tons and can carry a payload of 8800 kg. The missile is equipped with a separable warhead of the type “MIRV” with 10 th combat units with power from 0,55 to 0,75 Mt.

Before 1990, the complexes with the RS-20В “Voevoda” missile were put on combat duty also in the divisions deployed under the cities of Uzhur of the Krasnoyarsk Territory and Derzhavinsk in Kazakhstan. As of year 1992, 88 launchers with PC-20В “Voevoda” missiles were deployed.

The Dombarovsk missile compound is currently the only one where missiles RS-20B and RS-20В "Voevoda" are launched directly from the positional area of ​​the division. Thus, within the framework of the conversion program Dnipro, which provides for the elimination of ICBMs being launched from combat duty by launching with passing launch of spacecraft to near-earth orbit, in 2011 the Ukrainian Sich-2 spacecraft and the BPA-2 advanced avionics unit were launched as well as two Nigerian, two American, Turkish and Italian spacecraft.

The program for the use of RS-20-type missiles for launching space vehicles, called Dnepr, was launched on the initiative of the presidents of Russia and Ukraine in the middle of the 1990s. The governments of Russia and Ukraine in 1998 adopted a special resolution on its implementation.

Since the Dnepr program has been operating since April 1999, 16 missile launches have been conducted, including four from the position area of ​​the Dombarovsky missile compound. Intercontinental ballistic missile launches in this compound resumed after a long break (from 1991 of the year) in December of 2004 of the year, the press service and information department of the Russian Defense Ministry said.

            In 1991, Yuzhmash Design Bureau developed a preliminary design of the fifth generation R-36M3 Icarus missile system. It didn’t work out. For well-known reasons. Now heavy rockets are indeed of the fifth generation, and not the next modification is being created in Russia. The latest scientific and technological achievements will be invested in it. But you have to hurry. In 2014, the inevitable decommissioning of the reliable but still old Voivode will begin
            The contractor will be the Makeev State Missile Center (Miass, Chelyabinsk Region).
            According to experts, the new missile, in particular, "lays down such innovative requirements so that it can guaranteed to overcome any missile defense (including the space strike echelon)."
            At the same time, a deep modernization of the existing silo launchers of heavy ICBMs is foreseen, which involves their technological re-equipment, as well as a new qualitative level of fortification with the creation of elements of passive and active object missile defense. This will significantly increase the survivability of silo launchers from enemy influence with both conventional high-precision weapons and nuclear

            The new 100-ton heavy liquid intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which is supposed to replace the Satan, is unlikely to go into service with the Russian army sooner than 10 years later, according to the Deputy General Director of the NPO Mashinostroyeniya Military Industrial Corporation for Complexes strategic purpose Andrey Goryaev
            . (RIA News)

            Usually in the USSR it took 7-8 years to create new generation rockets

              The operating life of the Voivode was extended to the 2026 of the year, which is somewhere within the tolerance for the development and start of production of a new rocket. You won’t make a new rocket in a couple of years ... but you need to change the UR-100 too, so the sooner we start production, the better. Preferably, no later than the turn of the 2017-2018 years

                The life of the Voivode extended until 2026

                Solid fuel loses its combustibility over time, it is impossible to replace it with liquid fuel, extension of the term is a technical check, safety at start-up is generally the technical side, no one looks at the prolongation of the term for fuel, so in many mines right now there may be "dummies" that just won't take off

                  Well, the Voivode and UR-100 are liquid missiles. But “Poplars” with “Minutemans” are just solid propellant.
                  As part of the extension of the life of ICBMs, as a rule, launches of the most “age-specific missiles” are carried out. If everything is fine, the rocket flew. Well, if it flies, then the fuel is in order ... so the extension is directly related to the fuel, as well as to other factors.
                  But the "Minuteman" seems to have sounded the first "bell" http://www.arms-expo.ru/050049054050124050052052053049.html

      It’s a pity that these missiles will be written off sooner or later. But the main thing that touched the heavy ICBMs is. It is necessary to unite with Ukraine in terms of design ideas. And for this, guarantee them protection in the event of a nuclear threat.

            Firstly, this is my opinion, which, thanks to the constitution, is also permitted, in 2 START-3 I think I wouldn’t have been pushed without a lot of green papers, I’m afraid to imagine how much money the Americans put out for the removal of the BZHRK

    The author forgot to clarify that they no longer produce it. Like the BZHRK, which the Americans were even more afraid of. With all due respect to Topol, we were allowed to leave it only because of the least danger to them. Glory to the USSR, shame on Gorbachev.
    By the way, there is an opinion that the amers allowed us to produce only solid fuel mbr.

    The only bad thing is that the expiration date goes to them ... The rocket is made in the best traditions of the USSR (this is when the tablets cease to act not when the expiration date on the package comes out, but when they turn yellow and the mold is covered) - it’s time to retire for a long time she flies all over. In general, it was a super-weapon - and now a new one is needed. Although ... if you take and put the release of these missiles on the stream even now - any missile defense will burst into tears and run to complain to mom ....

      "Minutemans" also have to retire, although they will be older (all produced before 1980). But the Americans are not going to write them off yet. Good service and storage allow you to operate the equipment for a long time. Replacement, sort of like, for P-36М2 and UR-100 began to develop. And these missiles will still serve. The main thing is that when the time comes to remove them from service, they could be replaced with an adequate number of new heavy ICBMs - the main number of strategic missile forces warheads are just on heavy ICBMs - “Topol” and even “Yars” cannot completely replace them.

    No, still in the Union, dear Dmitry Fedorovich Ustinov, he directed all the power of his influence to ban the development of liquid carriers. Makeev, when the Sineva’s test launches were successfully completed and it was put into service, he bartered out - well, okay, you won here. But the next you will do ONLY solid fuel. And for such carriers, the energy of the engines of a highly liquid pair loses a priori. So I had to sculpt the R-39 monster with the 3M65 index .... Well, in the disaster, of course, the amers made sure that the most dangerous for them, the latest, with the longest operating life, was destroyed by priority.

Do you think the people, is it not a strange paradox that it was the NUCLEAR irresistible perfect death that saved us from the nuclear end of life, or ... all the same, the people who created it? I was traveling somehow across Russia, my mother on a train, a shift worker from Ukraine was traveling with me from Dnepropetrovsk, well, I’d say “screamer” of Ukraine (this word is most suitable in this case) (He loves his homeland well, but his level of intelligence did not allow to him to understand the obvious things) and now, I see, he really was sick of the soul for the plant that manufactured such perfection. And then the idea came to me quite simply that people who are so very happy for simple and understandable things are found only here. So not everything is lost, there will certainly be someone who can create even better. In my opinion, there would be worthy people, and you can revive the plant or create a new one, but in our case it is better to revive what we still have. Because we don’t have any time left. And this is our main problem.
