The terms of putting on combat duty of two new ICBMs with the Avangard hypersonic unit have been announced

Two new intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) with the Avangard hypersonic warhead may take up combat duty in the third decade of December. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source in the military-industrial complex.


The next two silo launchers (silos) with ICBMs equipped with Avangards can take up combat duty in one of the regiments of the Yasnensky missile formation on approximately December 25

- leads news interlocutor's word agency.

There is no official confirmation of this information yet, but in October this year, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced at a conference call that two new Avangard missile systems would be put on alert by the end of this year. In addition, on the eve of the Strategic Missile Forces Day, the military department showed the loading of one of the ICBMs with the Avangard into the launcher shaft of the Yasnenskaya division of the Strategic Missile Forces.

Currently, the Dombarovskaya (Yasnenskaya) missile division of the Strategic Missile Forces, stationed in the Orenburg Region, already has the first two intercontinental ballistic missiles UR-100N UTTKh, equipped with the Avangard hypersonic gliding combat unit, on experimental combat duty.

The regiment, equipped with new strategic missile systems, took up combat duty on December 27, 2019, about which Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

At present, the carriers of the Avangard hypersonic units are the UR-100N UTTKh ICBMs; in the future, the new Sarmat intercontinental missiles will become their carriers. Earlier it was reported that at the first stage, the Strategic Missile Forces would deploy two regiments with Vanguards, each of which will have 6 silo-based ICBMs.

                This is a special case. This glider makes bounces,
                "leaning" on the upper atmosphere. And every time is done
                astro correction. But astro correction is no longer in space, but in the upper
                layers of the atmosphere. And you need a certain amount of fuel to gas rudders
                worked. There were very, very few tests.
                In contrast, conventional ICBM warheads fall on targets almost vertically.
                and very accurate. Which is regularly checked on tests.

                  I do not think that the Ministry of Defense has adopted an unfinished glider without checking the correction systems. These are not conventional weapons, but strategic ones. The requirements for strategic weapons are always 100% clear. The UT-100NUTTH missile is quite large, with a lot of fuel.

                    The glider itself is very expensive. And trials too.
                    The Americans did the same. They put into service the missile defense system in Alaska after a small number of tests, of which only 50% were successful.

    Oh really? Indeed, in the UR-100N UTTH, the limitation is unlikely in terms of the mass of the output load, but in terms of the geometric dimensions of the Vanguard. Then one Vanguard block "climbed" into a diameter of 2 meters, and suddenly 3 "will fit into a diameter of 10 meters. Well, well.

    Don't write nonsense. There are no UNSCRIBE goals. It all depends on the outfit of forces involved in this. Therefore, if 2-3 anti-missiles are needed for a conventional block, then for Avangard, 3-5 will probably be needed. Or maybe you will need one, if Avangard will be fired at at long range, when it is still flying in space without maneuvering ...

    No. The position has remained as it was. Only our "partners" have a desire for the new contract to take into account
    a) China's strength
    b) our new products of intercontinental range (Avangard, Poseidon, Petrel)

    Item a) - China is not going to participate in the new treaty or is setting a condition that the arsenals of China-USA-Russia are equal. Does the US agree to this - no. Does Russia agree to this? I am afraid that it does not either, because the arsenals are not taken into account, albeit small ones in France and Britain

    On point b) - in fact, the American desire is legitimate, because the weapon is of intercontinental range. But this can hardly be done within 2-3 months. Our proposal is to extend them for a year, and during this time to regulate these issues (take into account these types of weapons)

      IMHO, you are mistaken about Vanguard. No calculated trajectory - no anti-missile hit.
      Your statement is true for a straightforward hypersuke. And the Vanguard is never straightforward.
      In space - yes, but who is there to track him at that distance? In addition, the launch of the Vanguard will never be single. When hundreds of targets are flying, missile defense will not help at all. There is a nonzero chance that the staff will simply scatter. laughing
      Therefore, the theme: knocking down at the start is the most realistic one. Therefore, a liquid-propellant rocket with a quick start (Stiletto) was taken under it.

    Let's start with the straightforwardness of the Vanguard. "Vanguard" can make some evolutions only in the atmosphere. Moreover, in terms of the overall and weight parameters of Avangard, it is very unlikely that Avangard possesses
    1. Powerful motors
    2. Large reserves of fuel
    3. Capable of making vigorous evolutions capable of disrupting anti-missile guidance.

    The launch of the Vanguard in the Strategic Missile Forces will certainly not be a single one, but the parameters of the propulsion system are such that it is not an insoluble task to determine what starts: Voevoda, Vanguard, or the promising Sarmat.

    the use of false targets for the "Vanguard" is of course possible, if it will be possible to place them on the same UR-00N UTTH or "Sarmat". It all depends on at what point in time "Vanguard" begins to make its evolution. if during entry into the atmosphere - this is one thing, if in space - then the need for false targets there is zero. The meaning is for false purposes, which, unlike the combat unit ("Vanguard" is not capable of making any evolutions.
    In addition, if a normal false warhead is capable of imitating with a high probability, then imitating a winged apparatus with a span of 2 meters and a length of 3-4 "conical" false targets - well, without knowing, I don't know.
    In addition, making energetic evolutions at a speed of 20-27M is beyond reality.

    Shoot down at the start? Very interesting. A liquid-propellant rocket has never been a faster launch rocket than a solid rocket.

    The active section of the UR-100N UTTH missile has an active section lasting 360 seconds (6 minutes). "Poplar", which, as you say, is easier to intercept than "Stiletto", has an active section of 180 seconds (3 minutes) duration. Do you consider a rocket that starts twice as slow as a faster launch? Wonderful are your deeds, O Lord! And the ABM bases in Romania and Poland cannot be intercepted here at all due to the fact that the range of the launch points (Dombarovskiy) is at least at a distance exceeding the flight range of interceptors from these bases. In addition, the radars of these bases will not be able to fix targets immediately after the start. And if physically they can detect these targets, then only when the rocket with the "Vanguard" passes more than a quarter of OUT. The speed of the fastest "Standard" missile is about 15M. The speed of the carrier during the operation of the second stage will be close to the speed of the interceptor. And then it turns out as in the parable "Achilles and the Turtle"

    Is it possible to grumble already? Especially to shoot down a warhead with the S-400 complex is very enchanting. Especially when you consider that the maximum that the S-400 system can shoot down is MRBM-type missiles. In addition, at a distance of about 60 km and an altitude of 15-30 km. And we are going to shoot down the target, which will be at an altitude of about 800 km at that time? Enchanting .... You can hit the base with Iskander. But only the anti-missile missile has already started by that time ... We will leave the S-500 outside the brackets for now.

      The newest Russian missile system "Avangard" on tests reached a speed of Mach 27 (more than 32,2 thousand km / h), Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said in an interview with the Russia 24 TV channel.

      2) UR-100N UTTH normally carries 6 BB. If 6 BB was replaced with 1 Vanguard, does it make sense? So the probability of hitting the 1 Vanguard missile defense system is lower than the probability of hitting 6 BB?
      Isn't that why they plan to replace 10 Sarmat's BBs with 3 Vanguards? wink

      I do not understand what kind of warhead you are talking about. I was talking about the defeat of SM-3 Block IIA. Nothing else fits into the Mk-41, if I'm not mistaken.
      “The SM-3 Block IIA is a version of the American interceptor missiles with a new kinetic interceptor of increased size and new on-board equipment, with high decoys selection capabilities. SM-3 Block IIA has an increased range and flight speed compared to previous modifications. The flight speed of the product is up to 4,5 km / s, and the maximum target destruction range is 2,7 thousand km. The product is designed to provide the capability to intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles, ”explained Lieutenant General Valery Zaparenko, ex-deputy chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces.

      And the ABM bases in Romania and Poland cannot be intercepted here at all due to the fact that the range of the launch points (Dombarovskiy) is at least at a distance exceeding the flight range of interceptors from these bases.

        Here we should take into account the fact that the SM-3 block IIA missiles are not in service. In 2019, an experimental batch of 17 units was ordered, which are used as part of the tests. According to the program director John Hill on August 29, 2020, the deployment of the system will not begin until 2030 So far, from the nearest plans for testing the rocket in winter and arctic conditions. In the meantime, versions IA and Ib continue to be purchased.

    And where will she be? Is this 14A042? Again in the Moscow area? And what, are we going to spend an interceptor missile designed to intercept an ICBM BB to intercept enemy interceptor missiles? And the range will be enough if the anti-missile is launched from Deveselu?

    The laws of physics are not classified as "top secret". In order to draw such conclusions based on the place under the head fairing of the 15A35-71 carrier, it is not necessary to have the first form of admission. Therefore, the fact that the device does not have large reserves of fuel and powerful engines is not top-secret information. In the same way, knowing the approximate speed, you can calculate what colossal overloads the apparatus will experience if it vigorously maneuvers in the atmosphere in order to disrupt the guidance of antimissiles. And if the evolutions are smooth, then there will be little sense in them. They will be calculated "once". It's like it would be a straight flight.

    And what can be surprising? Another "fairy tales" from the lips of Yuri Borisov? So his fairy tales should not be surprised for a long time. Only a storyteller like him, speaking of cosmic speeds, can immediately translate them into the number M? No, purely technically, of course, it can be translated, but only at the level of the Karman line and the speed of 7,3 km / s can be translated into the number M.

    And the speed of 32 km / h - where did it come from, if the speed at the end of OUT is 200 km / s (7,3 km / h)? How will the additional speed of 26 km / s be gained if the second stage engines give an increase of 280 km / s? Where did he measure these 1,6M. After the end of OUT, at the apogee, at the entry into the atmosphere? Even spacecraft entering the atmosphere on 2,5 spacecraft enter at a speed of about 27M. Yes, the same "Vanguard" will be able to reach speed, only at heights of 1-23 km. Both above and below this height the speed is less than that indicated by Borisov.

    There are many meanings. "Sarmat" is not ready, so it was necessary at least to bet on something. The probability of hitting one Vanguard block is not lower than the probability of hitting 6 blocks. The probability of the Vanguard's defeat is lower than the probability of hitting one block, but not all at once. In some situations, it is possible to use the "Vanguard" may be more profitable than ordinary blocks ...

    And I'm talking about her. How are you going to shoot down a warhead (kinetic interceptor) at an altitude of several hundred kilometers? The fact that from the ABM bases in Poland and Romania to the PR of the 13th division 2500-2600 km and "Standard" simply will not be able to shoot down the Avangard is not discussed, but how, how are you going to shoot down the S-400 missiles " Standard "when the missile defense capabilities of this complex are extremely limited. Up to 60 km in range and reach in height up to 20-30 km? How if the standard by that time will theoretically be at an altitude of 400 km ???

    The SM-3 Block IIA cannot intercept ICBM warheads. The next modification, SM-3 Block IIB, is designed for this, but this program is closed and it is not known whether it will ever be reanimated. More likely unlikely. The SM-3 Block IIA kinetic interceptor can intercept an ICBM AP only if it is in the firing plane.

    Distance from Deveselu to Kozelsk - 1500 km

    What does Kozelsk have to do with it? Avangard complexes are not being deployed in Kozelsk. And to Dombarovskiy is really about 2700 km. But do not forget that in this case, the "Vanguard" at the start will go towards the goal. The active section will end in 340 seconds at an altitude of about 400 km and at a distance of about 700 km from the start. The starting "Vanguard" radar from Deveselu could theoretically be seen only when it rises to an altitude of more than 400 km, i.e. from the ABM base "Avangard" by that time it will be approximately 3400 km. In addition, at a speed of 4,5 km / s, the Standard will never catch up with an ICBM, which is increasing its speed with every second.
