French nuclear submarine launched a ballistic missile towards the Caribbean Sea

The French Navy decided to flex their muscles in the Atlantic. For the first time in a long time, missile tests were conducted using a submarine.


We are talking about the nuclear strategic submarine Le Téméraire, belonging to the type of Triomphant.

A ballistic missile was launched from the side of the submarine at a time when it was off the coast of the French department of Finister.



In the test area, a Dassault Falcon 50 aircraft appeared with representatives of the naval command on board.

Ballistic missile launched from the submarine - M51. This is a solid rocket, which was put into service underwater fleet France in 2010 (according to other sources, in 2011). It is noteworthy that initially the M51 range was indicated as 11 thousand km, then official information changed - 9 thousand km. It was stated that the reduction in range is associated with a number of unresolved technical problems.

It is worth noting that during similar tests that were conducted in 2013, a ballistic missile exploded immediately after launch.

Information about the new test confirmed by the Minister of Armed Forces of France Florence Parley. From the statement of the Minister:

This test demonstrates our technological superiority and our commitment to French sovereignty. I congratulate all those whose work has made this test successful. Their participation is crucial for the French nuclear deterrence system and for our independence.

At the same time, there is no exact data on how far the M51 has traveled. It is reported that the rocket was launched towards the Caribbean Sea. Indirectly, this information is confirmed by the then increased activity of the American intelligence aviation east of Puerto Rico.

          M51 is an analogue of theUGM-133A Trident II, but with a shorter range.
          Now they are developing an improved version of the ballistic missile-M51.3. Most likely, it was tested.

            Launched M51.2.
            The boat launched a missile without a nuclear warhead off the west coast of France. Throughout the flight, the ammunition was tracked by radars and fell 700 kilometers from the launch site away from land.
            The M51 is France’s latest ballistic missile, and has been in service since 2010. The weight of SLBMs is 52 tons, 12 meters long and 2,3 meters in diameter, with an estimated range of 8 to 000 kilometers. The M10 carries six to ten thermonuclear warheads that can maneuver to overcome missile defense.

          If to joke, then not four rockets, but three left.
          But if to be serious, the French have four such boats, and each of them has 16 silos for ballistic missiles. So, you shouldn't forget about such a serious "partner".

      1. What does the intelligence center in Cuba have to do with it? He certainly did not shoot telemetry from ICBMs! And he had nothing to do with the SPRN system ...
      The capabilities of the center made it possible to intercept data from American communications satellites, terrestrial telecommunication cables, as well as messages from the US NASA flight control center in the nearby US state of Florida [

        You need to understand that the Caribbean is still the reverse side of the Earth. And even modern 3-hop over-the-horizon radars are far from always capable of detecting the launch torch of a medium-range ballistic missile.

        1. What does the intelligence center in Cuba have to do with it? He certainly didn’t shoot telemetry from ICBMs
        To detect the launch of ballistic missiles, conventional meter-range radars were sufficient there. On a standard scale of 1200 km, they covered 90% of the Caribbean Sea and reached the US coast. But telemetry, the intensification of negotiations on the air, is just well detected by the radio-technical intelligence complexes, which were based on a Cuban base, and not an early warning system. In modern conditions, a relatively cheap coastal radar such as "Sunflower" or "Container" could quite effectively control the entire region.

          Colleague, look at the map where the silos of the Minutemans are located and what they are armed with ...
          one W87 warhead on all 300 LGM-30G Minuteman-III missiles at Warren (Wyoming) and Malstrom (Montana) air bases. 150 missiles at Minot Air Force Base (North Dakota) will continue to be on duty with W78 warheads.

          Why do you need the Caribbean? There are definitely no American submarines there. lol On the Atlantic coast, SSBNs are based at the Kings Bay naval base, Georgia. So, the usual, "meter" radars of the general air situation ... not that ... will be.

    ... French systems nuclear deterrence and for our of independence.
    I wonder who France is holding back its nuclear weapons? Is it really Russia, which has enveloped France around its perimeter with its bases and called it an enemy in its military doctrine? And the independence of France and its sovereignty extends to Libya? There are many questions, but there is only one answer - if you are a member of NATO, you are obliged to transfer from empty to empty regarding deterrence, independence and threats emanating from the East.

    it is reported that the rocket was fired towards the Caribbean. Indirectly, this information is confirmed by the increased at that time activity of American intelligence aircraft east of Puerto Rico.

    Strange some kind of info in fact ...
    1. France is a member of NATO. And to shoot at a bearing to the United States, without prior agreement, is fraught with at least "misunderstanding" on the part of the hegemen.
    2. The French with such a range could well be discharged in TO, since there is a "million-to-million" water area! But there is a danger that the Russians could track the European leg of the M51's trajectory. And France does not have a mobile data acquisition complex
    3. France is forced to shoot through the most "saturated" sea area - across the Atlantic - at the test site (water area) located next to the * Kourou * cosmodrome or the Guiana space center, which is located near the northern coast of South America. This cosmodrome is used by European countries and the French National Center for Space Research (CNES). There are all the necessary instrumentation for reading the parameters for the accuracy of the BB aiming.
    Well, judging by the info, the French conducted a test launch of their M51.2, as previously stated. Here is her performance characteristics:
    D firing, km 9000 (according to other sources 6000-8000 and 10000 in variant M51.2)
    KVO, km 0,25 (0,2 in variant M51.2)
    Type of warhead RGCH IN with KSP PRO
    The number of BB 6
    The power of each warhead, ct 100 (300 in version M51.2)
    Missile mass, t 56
    Rocket length, m 12
    Rocket diameter, m 2,3
    Operating time of each march stage, from 60
    Number of stages 3 march + breeding stage
    In the West, it is believed that this is the most advanced SLBM today.

        France returned to NATO’s military organization under President Nicolas Sarkozy in 2009: in March, the National Assembly voted in favor of the president’s proposal to return France to NATO command structures, and a formal decision was announced at the NATO summit in Strasbourg and Cologne. At the same time, France did not join the activities of the NATO Nuclear Planning Group. Thus, she left the right to dispose of her nuclear forces at her discretion.

        You're right. There is a floating measuring complex on the Monge ship. And he was assigned to the M51 trials. I don't know where he is now.
        But there was such an infa that
        On September 27, 2018, Monge lost track, returning to Brest. The ship was 10 miles (16 km) from Pierres Noires lighthouse and took measurements when it suddenly lost speed. The tugboat Abeille Bourbon was sent to tow Monge to the end of his journey to WBM Brest.
        Judging by the info, the ship was used to track the M51 in the initial and middle sections of the trajectory. A BB splashdown already conducted a spacecraft tracking complex at the Kourou spaceport. Monge could not simultaneously be 10 thousand km from the start of the M51.
        Somehow, however.

          This is the most important thing, and then after pointing warheads they’re already following pure ballistics and tracking can be reduced by simpler means (including other fleet ships, and satellites) - they just try not to let them over populated areas. The United States is allowed to enter from the west coast - it is logical that they are sending to the Pacific, and France, from the SSBN patrol zone, has essentially one choice with slight variations.

Therefore, everyone looks at how exactly they splashed down (because there are no "holes" (funnels) of BB in the sea, especially if they "maneuvered" before, like ours, for example. But at 6000 km this is still not enough for MK.3, because in the infe there is an assumption that it was M51.3 that was launched on 12.06.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX.

              Not only that, but the problem of tracking the entire trajectory is not in the range as such, but in the radio horizon and if you look at the map, you will see that Kuru doesn’t help much either, although maybe they’re also looking at something from there. Range, as you know, depends on the trajectory and apogee. In any case, having a base nearby is good, but in Quiet, among other things, it’s far from the nearest French territory with a potentially maximum of 11000 km. Actually, this is a standard area of ​​such FR launches and general excitement here only indicates public ignorance of the materiel. It’s known that BBs don’t maneuver there - the glider demonstrator will be a bit later

                - Look about the flat trajectories ...
                - Then remember about "Frog Jumping" GZ BB in PSA.
                - If we see Voronezh at 6000 (in the worst case, at 3700), then the French are probably not far behind. D p = 6000km, so with 3000 they started tracking exactly. At an altitude of 1200 km (before and after breeding the BB), the third stage and blocks can be observed.
                So ...

                  Think about how the flat trajectory and other GB GBs with jumps have to do with the event under discussion.

                  Are you completely confused about something - are you at an altitude of 1200 km or a drop point?

    1812, 1941 /// >> ??? "PARTNERS"
    The fascists in Berlin have already surrendered and fled, and the French only in the morning of May 2, following the announcement of the surrender of the German capital: - "the last 30 fighters of the SS Charlemagne battalion (former SS Charlemagne division) out of 300 volunteers who arrived in Berlin left the bunker Reich Chancellery, where no one was left alive except for them ".. Yarilla, in other words, fought to the last drop of blood.
    On May 8, 1945, the German Field Marshal Keitel, entering the hall where he must sign the Act on the complete and unconditional surrender of Germany, and seeing there, besides representatives of the Big Three - the USSR, the USA and Great Britain, also representatives of France in military uniform, could not resist phrases: “How ?! Did these ones defeat us too? ”
    Therefore, remembering de Gaulle and the French pilots of the Normandie-Niemen regiment (about 400 hundred along with mechanics), we should also know about the French who fought against our people as part of the Wehrmacht, the French Legion of volunteers, repeating the fate of the "Great Army" Napoleon, about hundreds of thousands of Frenchmen including punishers (the “Legion of French Volunteers” fought near Moscow, distinguished himself in punitive operations against Belarusian partisans in 1942. Later, the French Legion was merged with another volunteer formation - “Three-color Legion”, in September 1944 the “Tricolor Legion” base was created by the SS division “Charlemagne”), who fought in various units of the Waffen-SS armed forces and killed our fellow citizens during the Great Patriotic War ... Yarilla.
    We must remember that the whole EU fought in the Second World War against us, and if that does not hesitate to repeat the attempt to turn us into slaves.
    And so, on the topic, it is necessary to China, NATO countries with "atom" with delivery vehicles + India, Pakistan, Israel to enter at least into the START treaty, more stringent measures from our leadership .... ???

    By the way, the French are technologically very strong ... I would say - the Germans are stronger than engineering, and the French - by brains .... If you need something for iron - to hamburg (there was a case, they didn’t decide in Wuxi (Shanghai) on the reinforcement mill in Hamburg cost half as much, if for the same avionics - you in Bordeaux (for the 900th bought something ...)

    The French Navy decided to flex their muscles in the Atlantic. For the first time in a long time, missile tests were conducted using a submarine.


    But what, submarines should stand at the pier and not even try to use the weapons on board? What is the regular situation?

    France - a country of NATO - is a fact. Consequently, all launches are coordinated with the NATO command ((with the owner - the USA). Thus, the French fulfilled their task, and the USA - their own - checked the functioning of the lighting system for the actual purpose.
