Ministry of Defense: Flight tests of "Sarmat" will begin in the near future

Flight tests of the newest Russian intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) "Sarmat" will begin shortly. Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko stated this in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.


Krivoruchko recalled that the creation of the newest complex with the heavy Sarmat ICBM is underway in Russia. Currently, the stage of missile throw tests has been completed and the next stage will be the flight test stage.

I would like to note that today the Sarmat missile throw tests have been completed with a positive result. In the near future we will start flight tests of this missile system.

- he said.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense stated that the end of flight design tests of the new Sarmat ICBM was set in 2021. In the same year, the industry will have to master the serial production of a new weapons and related systems. The deployment of the Sarmat ICBM on combat duty of the Strategic Missile Forces is scheduled for 2022. This information was confirmed by the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces Sergei Karakaev.

The RS-28 "Sarmat" ICBMs are being prepared to replace the world's most powerful silo-based ICBMs, the RS-20V "Voevoda" (NATO - SS-18 "Satan"); the missile will become the carrier of the Avangard hypersonic blocks.

The Deputy Minister also paid attention to the Zircon hypersonic missile. According to Krivoruchko, serial deliveries of the new missile in the interests of the Russian Navy will begin in 2022.

He noted that within the framework of the rocket development program in 2020, successful launches were carried out from the board of the frigate Admiral Gorshkov.

And starting from 2022, their serial delivery will begin.

- added the deputy minister.

As previously reported, in 2021, the Zircon hypersonic missile will enter the stage of state tests, within the framework of which a number of missile launches will be carried out from a surface ship and a submarine. The frigate of the Northern fleet "Admiral Gorshkov" and the nuclear submarine "Severodvinsk".

    Preparations for the end of START III according to plan. This is just news, not an article. I would like a detailed review.
    And I'm more interested in the topic of the BZHRK. What did you decide with Barguzin in the end?

      We decided that there was no money for it.
      In addition, those interested in saving have prepared a justification that the BZHRK de no longer have the same degree of secrecy as Molodets had.
      Like, the means of detecting trains, emitted radiation and other signs of a potential enemy have developed very well, that it is not difficult to determine the location of the train and maintain constant control over it.

The deployment of the Sarmat ICBM on combat duty of the Strategic Missile Forces is scheduled for 2022.


      There is a contradiction in the statements of representatives of the Ministry of Defense. The Sarmat missile is ready for flight tests, but the test range is not. Was it possible to prepare a test range in advance? You will have to wait again.
      The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has begun preparations for testing the latest Russian Sarmat ICBM.

      The head of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Sergei Shoigu, instructed to begin the construction of a new test site near the village of Severo-Yeniseisky (Krasnoyarsk Territory) to conduct flight tests of the newest Russian heavy ICBM "Sarmat". According to Sergei Shoigu, this task will need to be solved next year, since the heavy ICBM is ready for testing.

      “In 2021, the Ministry of Defense will have to solve a number of priority tasks. For rearmament, to equip the Severo-Yenisei test site near the village for carrying out flight tests of the Sarmat missile system, - said Sergei Shoigu at an expanded meeting of the board of the Russian Defense Ministry.

            The question is not even the test site's readiness for testing, but the fact that "Sarmat" has never flown yet.
            Not even once.
            How can you plan to complete tests (including state) within one year?
            Are they so sure that everything will go through without failures and comments? The process of testing, identifying defects and their elimination takes years!
            Who is this ... noodles for?
            For the enemy?
            So he did not degrade so much with his mind, but he also has other sources of information.
            Then for whom?
            For internal use?
            For scrapers?
            So after all, the brains of their own electorate have not been reflected ...
            Or counting on the victims of the exam?
            They would simply say that flight tests of the Sarmat rocket will begin next year.
            And that’s it !!!
            Or are they no longer afraid of shame?

      Let them dream. For this, the "bitiya" means must be on duty in the take-off area, which is unrealistic. Or to intercept at the initial part of the trajectory, which is also difficult, because the launch trajectory of the "Sormat" can be any, bypassing the existing missile defense areas, up to a flight through the South Pole.

              The reality is that the US has set out to create a four-echelon missile defense system.
              The first echelon-positioning areas of anti-missiles in Eastern Europe. It is they who will hit the OUT.
              The second is planned to be deployed in the Atlantic on a dozen ships
              At the same time, it is planned to use small-size super-high-speed missiles, which on catch-up trajectories will be able to intercept 50 seconds after [their] launch (nonsense, in my opinion, but such a task has been set).
              The third is the modernized NORAD.
              The fourth is local missile defense of positional areas.

        There is no such missile defense. American missile defense consists of
        1) GBI - heavy missiles in Alaska. Intercept on a cross-over course
        on the middle (high part of the trajectory).
        2) THAAD - smaller missiles. In California.
        Interception is also to meet. For the atmosphere, but on the descent.
        3) SM-3 Aegis system. Sharpened to intercept medium-range ballistic missiles,
        but they "fall short" to intercept ICBMs on the descent.

        None of these systems are capable of intercepting missiles on takeoff.
        Only conventional Tomahawk missile launchers can cover ICBM launchers deep in Russia.
        But the Tomahawk is subsonic, flies slowly and is not stealth. It can be intercepted.

      To beat our ICBMs on takeoff, the American missile defense must be near the launch sites. And it is also desirable that at the stage of takeoff and acceleration, the rocket flew towards the missile defense complex.
      Of course, the SM-3 Block IIA rocket has a speed of 5 km / s and a range of 2500 km. But only for this maximum range it will fly for 8 minutes. Where during this time will there be an ICBM RS-28 launched from the Orenburg or Irkutsk regions launched towards the United States not through Europe wink

            I don't know what AUG is. Perhaps an aviation strike group. Or aircraft carrier
            And OUT is the active part of the trajectory. That is, the area where the rocket engines work. On OUT, acceleration takes place, a turn to the target (in the plane of 1-3 stabilizers). Therefore, the missile is the most vulnerable in this area.
            After shutdown, there will already be a PUT.

    To fence a multi-trillion-dollar project for the sake of deploying one division, taking into account the fact that everything will have to be done from scratch, plus not realizing the enemy's increased ability to receive information, is to cut money with minimal "waste". I would like to deploy 30 more missiles - deploy 3-4 regiments with PGRK in existing divisions. There will be an order of magnitude more benefits

    Where does the four-echelon one come from when you described only three echelons? NORAD is not a train, it is a command center in the first place ...
    First echelon. The positional area in Eastern Europe will not be able to shoot down anything except the MRBM. If the Americans took the path of creating a 3-site area in Europe using GBI interceptor missiles, then it would be possible (theoretically). They could hit our ICBMs in the initial sections of the active sections of the trajectory starting from Vypolzovo, Tatishchevo and Dombarovsky. In this case, interceptor missiles with speeds of the order of 8-8,5 km / s were able to intercept our launching ICBMs on colliding and catch-up courses. With the use of SM-3 Block2A missiles, the Americans do not have such an opportunity. This is for the first echelon

    Echelon second... What super-high-speed small-sized missiles can they have in order to intercept warheads traveling at a speed of about 7,5 km / s on a catch-up course? The highest-speed American missile defense missile - Standard SM-3 Block2A has a speed of about 4-4,5 km / s. What will these super-high-speed rockets work on? Will there be photonic ones or fusion-powered?

    Third echelon. You just don't have it. Only modernization of the control center.

    Fourth echelon.local missile defense position areas. This simply does not exist in nature

    To be honest, the meaning of creating this landfill in the area of ​​the settlement of Severo-Yeniseisky of the Krasnoyarsk Territory is not entirely clear. There is about 3700 km to the Kura, in contrast to Plesetsk, where the distance to the Kura is intercontinental

    Vanguard is good. But the Americans are planning to hit our ICBMs on takeoff.
    With this, "Sarmat" how? Who knows? Are there qualified missilemen on the site?

    Will Burke be driven into the taiga?

    Obviously you mean not OUT, but AUG? And how do you imagine AUG in central Siberia, for example?

    In fact, the namesake comrade meant exactly OUT, not AUG. And he wrote that the tidbit is the OUT of the ICBM. OUT - the active section of the rocket trajectory, when the engines are still working and the rockets are still something overall, and not a "bus" with BB

    None of these systems are capable of intercepting missiles on takeoff.
    Only conventional Tomahawk missile launchers can cover ICBM launchers deep in Russia.
    But the Tomahawk is subsonic, flies slowly and is not stealth. It can be intercepted

    Not exactly, Alexey. If the Americans had not put an end to their SM-3 Block 2B system, such an interception would have been possible. It was "Standard SM-3 Block 2B" that was intended (planned) to intercept ICBMs and it is possible that in the initial phase. But this system "died".
    "Tomahawk" - yes, it can cover, but it is easy to intercept it in-1, in-2 while it is flying, ICBMs are already starting. And it can only be used against silos. Try to find PGRK launchers on an area of ​​hundreds of thousands of square kilometers, in the taiga, besides

    But maybe. This is the difference between the Sarmat and the R-36 ... The engines there are different at the first stage ..
