Day of the nuclear security specialist of the Russian Federation

31

On May 31, 2006, a new professional holiday appeared in the calendar of holidays and memorable dates - the Day of the Nuclear Support Specialist. This date is celebrated in our country annually on September 4.


The date was not chosen by chance. The fact is that on September 4, 1947, in the Soviet Union, a Special Department was created at the General Staff of the Armed Forces, which was tasked with leading the conduct of nuclear tests. Recall that by that time the United States of America had already managed to test its nuclear weapon, and on living people, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. Nuclear weapons appeared in the Soviet Union in 1949, creating a power parity that actually continues to this day.

Today in our country, the 12th Main Directorate of the Ministry of Defense (12th GU MO) is the central body of the military administration for the implementation of the military component of the policy in the field of nuclear-technical orientation. It was created in April 1958. It was in its composition that in February 1959 entered the 6th Directorate of the USSR Ministry of Defense, created in the year the country's first nuclear bomb was put into service.

At the end of 1959, the 12th GU MO was included in the newly created branch of the USSR Armed Forces - the Strategic Missile Forces (Strategic Rocket Forces).

In this format, the 12 Main Directorate of the Ministry of Defense existed for about 15 years, and in 1974 it was withdrawn from the Strategic Missile Forces and subordinated directly to the USSR Ministry of Defense.

The range of tasks solved by the specialists of the 12th GU MO is extensive. This is the control of development, accounting and storage of nuclear warheads, the distribution of certain types of nuclear weapons between the central and military bases of nuclear weapons, the renewal of the country's nuclear arsenal.

Solving nuclear support tasks is the most important component of the country's security and protection of its state sovereignty.

    Happy holidays!
    My brother was engaged in storage, assembly, transportation in Novosibirsk, Kemerovo regions. nuclear warheads for air defense missiles.
    In his words - a ball of plutonium the size of an orange.
    Guys are inconspicuous.

      And exactly for air defense, do not you confuse? Why air defense personnel need nuclear warheads laughingThey, these specialists, are not only imperceptible, but also "deaf and dumb", so it looks like a story about the orange too.

        C-200, C-75 had special warheads.
        For group purposes.
        Itself personally stood near the 200th installation. WITH YABCH. Repeatedly.

        To intercept nuclear warheads, it is the SBS for air defense missiles that are used, and you cannot put more orange in a warhead of the same S-200, there is also automation, an initiation system, thermostatting, etc.

          I know that the Kh-55 type attack cruise missiles had a bunch of defenses, that over their territory they simply collapsed, preventing nuclear reaction chains from starting.

        Not all oranges are the same size.

        He is a retired colonel. 83 years old. What other secrets will he keep while living in Kiev?

          About the orange, I mean that while doing storage, I might know, but not the fact that I saw a nuclear charge myself, that is, plutonium.

            I learned something about his specialization by accident.
            As he said: "Yes, I felt hundreds of them!"
            We were passing by its part near Novokuznetsk, I asked why there were no three rows of thorns?
            In order not to attract attention!

              In our country, the "deaf and dumb" brought SBChs on alarm in lead containers, I think that is how they were stored - as finished products assembled at the factory.
              I had to put the SBU in the head of the rocket, I saw two colors, one seems to be purely telemetric and the other is unknown what laughing

                  I will not argue, but if earlier, on alarm, we needed to equip and take out a rocket under the plane in 45 minutes, then I doubt that the "deaf-mute" RTB officers also completed their items, since this time included their arrival. not in combat units and are stored by component. By the way, there is a multi-level degree of protection and SBS is not so easy to blow up.

        The legacy of the era when they were preparing to repel massive raids by large groups of bombers. Plus compensation for inaccuracy of guidance.
        And we were not the only ones like that - "Nike-Hercules" and "Bomark" also had missiles with nuclear warheads.

          Tactical, small charges over its territory, maybe the concept is, of course, contradictory and has a lot of shortcomings.

            Against the background of the fact that it will arrive with bombers, SAMs with SBS will make an extremely small contribution. Moreover, the explosions will be airborne.

              These are modern S-500 missiles with nuclear warheads against satellites and transatmospheric targets, they can be effective, before there really was no choice, but at that time it is necessary to take into account at that time a certain degree of military-political bluff from nuclear weapons of both sides, the USSR and the USA with allies. tried to scare more with his nuclear weapons.

        Those who communicated with them on combat duty have a very specific opinion about this contingent - as they say, you cannot erase words from a song. Although my classmates ended up in this structure and finished their service there - "one ruble, two way out", and it worked there. One is true only survived to fifty, oncology, the other is alive and well.

          We had their "object" in the unit, they guarded it from the inside, the troops - from the outside. Stopped. From the third time it turned out that they are normal guys, like everyone else, but everyone has their own costs of service.
