On January 28, 2021, in the report on the Single Day of Military Acceptance, information was provided that in December last year, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation adopted 11 new intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) of various basing types. Experts believe that we are supposedly talking about nine mobile ground missile systems "Yars-S" and two ICBMs with aeroballistic hypersonic combat equipment (AGBO) "Avangard".

As part of the event, according to Major General Alexander Prokopenkov, who is the commander of the Barnaul division of the Strategic Missile Forces, it became known that the rearmament of the compound in Barnaul to the modernized Yars-S complex will be completed by the end of 2021. There was also information about the completion of the rearmament of the third - 307th regiment of the 35th Barnaul missile division at the Yars-S PGRK, the fourth regiment of this division will receive similar complexes by the end of the year.

Despite the fact that the Yars complexes have been in service since 2009, there is practically no official information about them due to the secrecy of the development. The core of the complex is a solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile with a multiple warhead. The rocket was developed by MIT - Moscow Institute of Heat Engineering. The missile is an improved version of the Topol-M missile complex in all respects. In the future, it is the Yars complexes that will form the backbone of the Russian strike group of the Strategic Missile Forces.

The unification of the missiles of the complex with the Topol ICBM family made it possible to reduce the costs of manufacturing and operating the latest Russian strategic complexes. The assembly of ICBMs of the RS-24 Yars complex has been established in the Udmurt Republic at the Votkinsk Machine-Building Plant, and the only foreign element in the complex is a 16x16 chassis, which is produced in the Republic of Belarus at the well-known MZKT - Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant.

According to the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakaev, the name of the modern Russian strategic missile complex Yars stands for "nuclear deterrent missile." Experts believe that in the modernized version of the Yars-S complex, the letter "C" presumably means "medium power".

The Yars-S complex once became a surprise for experts


For the first time, the military spoke about the Yars-S complex during the Single Day of Military Acceptance in October 2019. For military experts, the presentation of the new complex was then a real surprise. Speaking about the features and characteristics of the new strategic missile system, military expert, Doctor of Military Sciences Konstantin Sivkov in an interview with RIA News suggested that Yars-S is likely to have more powerful warheads than its predecessor.

All characteristics of the complex at that time were classified. It was only known that the complex was also available in both mobile and mine versions. Experts interviewed by the RIA Novosti agency found it difficult to comment on the new strategic missile system, citing the fact that they had not heard anything about it before.

The only one who gave the agency a comment at that time was Konstantin Sivkov, who admitted that he himself had not heard anything about the new Russian military development until October 2019. According to Sivkov:

The modernization of any modern missile systems can be carried out in two main directions. The first is to implement higher targeting accuracy. Second, in the use of more advanced warheads, their throw weight can also be slightly increased.

What we learned about the Yars-S complex in 2021


Almost two years later, very little is known about the modernized version of the Yars-S strategic missile system. Most of the information about the complex remains classified. At the same time, at the end of January 2021, the Russian Ministry of Defense for the first time published at least some data on the missile range of the complex and its characteristics.


Launch of the RS-24 "Yars" rocket at the Plesetsk test site, frame from the video of the RF Ministry of Defense, 2017

Information about the newest Yars-S mobile ground-based missile system was presented on the slide, which was shown as part of the speech by Alexei Krivoruchko, who holds the post of Deputy Minister of Defense of Russia. As in 2019, information about the complex appeared on the Single Day of Acceptance of Military Products, which took place on Friday, January 29.

Like its predecessor, the modernized Yars-S complex is based on solid-propellant ballistic missiles, which are a further modernization of the Topol-M ICBMs. From the presented slide it is known that the diameter of the Yars-S missile is 1,86 m, the length is 17,8 m. The launch mass of the carrier is 46 tons with a payload of 1,25 tons. It is stated that the Yars-S complex is capable of hitting targets on the territory of a potential enemy at a distance of up to 10 thousand kilometers from the launch site.

In fact, this was the first time the characteristics of the Yars complexes were officially presented. Until that moment, if such information was found in various sources, it was not official. At the same time, theoretically, some characteristics of the Yars complexes, which can be found today in the vastness of the network, are higher than those presented at the Single Day of Acceptance of Military Equipment.

For example, on the popular scientific research resource MilitaryRussia.ru, which specializes in stories Soviet and Russian military equipment, you can find the characteristics of missiles of the Yars complex. At the same time, it should be noted that, given the secrecy of such information, it is pointless to claim 100% reliability in this matter.


In particular, it was previously known about the Yars missiles that their estimated length is from 21,9 to 22,55 m, without the head section - 17 m. With the same diameter of 1,86 m, the launch mass of the missiles could reach 47 200 kg, throw weight - 1180-1250 kg, maximum range - 11-12 thousand kilometers. The circular probable deviation was estimated at 150 m.

The Yars strategic missile system was put into service in 2009; in March 2011, the first regiment, re-equipped with new complexes, took up combat duty. The mobile installation of this missile system is equipped with a three-stage solid-propellant ballistic missile, the main difference of which from the Topol-M missiles is a multiple warhead with individual guidance units.

It was reported that the carrier is able to deliver up to 6 blocks with a capacity of 150 kt of a single type with a sea-based Bulava missile, or up to 3-4 warheads with a capacity of 300-500 kt each. The MilitaryRussia.ru resource suggests that the Yars-S strategic complex missile carries three medium-class warheads with a capacity of 300-500 kt.

At the moment, in the Strategic Missile Forces of Russia, on experimental combat duty, the modernized Yars-S complexes are located in Yoshkar-Ola and in Barnaul. In the future, all domestic missile divisions as part of the Strategic Missile Forces are planned to be fully re-equipped with modernized missile systems, both silo and mobile.

          Its main advantage is mobile. It is not Washington or Moscow that will not flee. It will crawl five km in half an hour. And even for 1 mgt this is a mistake. And I gave the Americans half an hour a head start - in reality it is too fat. Wars don't start with nothing. The preparation cannot be hidden. So Yars will have time to shoot, immediately or a little later.

    in the article, the author relies on secrecy, in contrast to Topol-m, and the main secret (which has not been a secret for a long time) himself tells, the main difference in the "head" of the missile is a multiple warhead, and not a monoblock one like that of a poplar, although a monoblock one stick in if power is needed ... and the rest is 90 percent the same .. in fact it is Poplar-m2 .. Topol already has a service life of about 20 years, of course it's time to change .. Thank God there is something for that, and not terms like we have, I remember forever extended ..

                        It will fly the same way. Here are some examples:

                        October 3, 2001 13:00 MSK [29] Plesetsk Kura? successful UBP, the missile carried the DB in the troops for 15 years
                        The purpose of the launch: confirmation of performance characteristics and reliability of the missile system in extended service life [
                        October 12, 2002 13:52 MSK [31] Plesetsk Kura? successful UBP, the missile carried the DB in the troops for 12 years
                        The purpose of the launch: confirmation of performance characteristics and reliability of the missile system
                        November 2, 2004 12:52 PM MSK [31] Plesetsk Kura? successful BPM,
                        The purpose of the launch: confirmation of the performance characteristics of the ICBM and the extension of the service life up to 20 years [31]
                        Launches from Plesetsk often combine business with pleasure. The new equipment is being tested. Here's an example:
                        November 1, 2005 20:10 MSK [36] Kapustin Yar Sary-Shagan? successful test run,
                        The purpose of the launch: flight test of a new unified (for BR marine and
                        ground-based) warhead and tests to extend the life of the complex [37

                        The fact that there is no point in launching missiles from combat positions if there is a military cosmodrome equipped with all the necessary equipment to organize and control launches. The main problem of TT missiles, fuel aging, will not be solved by any preliminary preparation.

    I agree that secrecy is needed, but to what extent and from whom? If you think about it, then only from us, ordinary people! Otherwise, how to correlate more or less detailed data on the performance characteristics of the missile and the recently extended START Treaty? It seems that everything is discussed in some detail in terms of the number of warheads, carriers, etc. etc. That is, our dear "partners" are aware of the parameters of our weapons, we alone are teapots ...
    Well, this is so, by the way of secrecy, but no matter how you hit on its necessity!

    Not only ... I operate with open sources. The media voiced the possibility of launching from any point in the positional area. It must be assumed that Yars is not so strongly tied to patrol routes as Topol. Apparently there are hardware changes in the SN (navigation system), software changes in the SPR (aiming system).
    They also wrote that "Yars" does not require engineering preparation of the launch site (?!). More like not knowing the terminology of the authors ...

    I am ambiguous about the PGRK. It seems like mobility is good, but how the means of reconnaissance and destruction are developing, especially in the area of ​​UAVs, and especially in the direction of a sharp decrease in their size and visibility, you start to think so, you can dig deeper, and dig tunnels between underground launchers, and maneuver there. There are examples in history. It is painful to watch how these guys drive along public roads in their cars from ZATO to the launch area.

              Thought out .. to the extent of actual capabilities and practical feasibility .. PGRK, like any weapon, has strengths and weaknesses, there is no invulnerable superweapon ..
              How, for example, do you check a forest for a couple of kilometers on both sides of the road in order for the operator to identify? Let the infantry regiment go into combing with a chain? and in this case, he can skip the chain and then start actions.
              This is really the weak point of the PGRK-weak security compared to the OS, especially in motion .. But, they have strength in their movement .. Therefore, different types of strategic nuclear forces are needed ..

The fact is that this is a non-standard formation (at least it was on the Topols). get (got) there, as a rule, on a temporary basis, those without whom it was possible to do on the database, folding, deployment, - headquarters officers, - of the SPNSh type, chief of staff, from the armament service ... Fifteen years ago on the channel " The star "saw a funny reportage. It began with approximately the following words:" Today our reportage is about the most secret, most trained units of the Armed Forces. No, this is not the GRU special forces, not combat swimmers, and not the DRG of the Airborne Forces ... "
            In reality, everything is sadder.
            According to the plan of the conducted exercises, the DRGeshniks, of course, were either destroyed or taken prisoner. Only before that they had time to draw crosses with chalk on the aggregates of the complex (destroy, damage, which was not advertised), and only then lay down until they were found. , a saboteur hiding under the cover of night during the collapse of the battalion's field position, ransacked the pendal from the running officer with the words "... Fighter! ... grabbed the cable, ran!" Then I was forced to "surrender" ..))
            When the role of saboteurs was not the special forces of various structures, the visitors, but the officers of neighboring regiments, then the fact of confirmation of the penetration was considered, excuse me, a pile left under the unit.
            During the war-dangerous period for the protection and defense of divisions, regiments, additional forces should have been attached (in the zero years), - motorized riflemen, and even reconnaissance, assault groups of the Airborne Forces ... In the 90s, for large-scale exercises of the "Pioneers" even the tankers were involved.
            If we talk about the fleeting development of events, all hope is on our own strength. And they obviously ... I don't know, maybe there are now changes in the staff of divisions, I would like to believe. Recently they wrote on VO about new units for the Strategic Missile Forces (armored personnel carriers with thermal imagers), UAVs are small, I saw them, they launched them, that is, they are puzzled by the question ...

        Can you imagine a satellite in orbit over the Tomsk region?
        Here at VO it was discussed quite recently. The capabilities of satellites are growing from year to year, and not even necessarily purely military. Already commercial satellites provide a very clear picture not only in the photo, but also in the radio range in real time. And with the launch of systems of hundreds and thousands of satellites into orbit, the system acquires even previously unavailable capabilities.

          So the enemies have that, bombers with UAVs in their pants are deployed throughout the territory of a possible patrol of the PGRK at an interval of one kilometer?
          But, of course, you will answer that everything has already been sold and everything is known to the enemy, so the land mines are laid, the missiles are aimed, guess right?

      I am ambiguous about the PGRK. It seems like mobility is good, but how the means of reconnaissance and destruction are developing, especially in the area of ​​UAVs, and especially in the direction of a sharp decrease in their size and visibility, you start to think so, you can dig deeper, and dig tunnels between underground launchers, and maneuver there. There are examples in history. It is painful to watch how these guys drive along public roads in their cars from ZATO to the launch area.

      "... Like these guys in their cars from ZATO to the launch area ..."
      Probably not "on their own".))
      What are you calling "ZATO"?
      Without clinging to terminology, the "launch area" is almost the entire positional area. Therefore, they "travel" not "to", but "along" ... "launch area", using your terminology.
      In fact, (the vulnerability of the PGRK, especially on the march), I will not argue. This is a long-known fact, and a big headache. We have a captain from the commandant's service died trying to stop a timber carrier driven by a drunk driver. From conversations with "saboteurs" who arrived from various spetsnaz for "war" (exercises), it follows that in order to accomplish the task (destruction, damage to the complex), it will be enough to approach several kilometers (!), - depending on the available means, weapons ...
      IMHO, - the Strategic Missile Forces can only provide direct security. The rest, - the tasks of the Air Defense, the National Guard, special officers, motorized rifle, etc.

            Well, if the task is to "roll" a rocket on public roads ... It will pull. It's just humor. And it's very poor. And here's why:
            The road network in the places where the PGRK is located is not very widespread.
            The tactics of application requires the possibility of movement of the carrier (and the entire complex) along dirt roads, rough terrain with minimal engineering training. The semi-trailer is no longer a competitor to the multi-axle chassis.
            And you did not take into account at all that in addition to the product (rocket) itself, about 50 tons of "junk" are required for its operation, condition monitoring, application:
            its TTRD requires a very strict temperature and humidity regime (we add a sickly heater, dehumidifier, air conditioner);
            before the start, it must be raised to a vertical position, -before lifting from the leveling platform-tractor (plus a developed hydraulic system, -hydraulic jacks, hydraulic motors, hydraulic pumps, hydraulic cylinders);
            means of communication, - for various purposes and ranges;
            navigation systems, aiming;
            combat control equipment;
            well, and, of course, all this economy needs to be powered, uninterruptedly, redundantly, with various voltages, currents ...

    Mostly no. They are installed instead of monoblock "Topols". The only case of replacing more powerful ones with less powerful ones is replacing the old UR-100N UTTKh with "Yars" in the Kozelsk division. In other cases, it is the replacement of old monoblock "Topols" with various modifications of "Yars"

    And the number produced is not a criterion. There are only three items under the contract that are subject to verification:
    1. amount deployed Carriers
    2. amount deployed warheads
    3. amount deployed and not deployed media and launchers.
    Clause 3 takes into account all changes. For example, the boat got up for repairs, the number of deployed carriers and BB is decreasing. Returned to combat strength - it is increasing. The number of non-deployed carriers and launchers includes, for example, mines from which the missiles were withdrawn and disposed of, but the mines are still in working order

Already commercial satellites provide a very clear picture not only in the photo, but also in the radio range in real time. And with the launch of systems of hundreds and thousands of satellites into orbit, the system acquires even previously unavailable capabilities.

    The orbit is not hard to imagine. The whole question is in the capture width (in the capture band) and in the frame size. Theoretically, the OER satellite is capable of detecting a moving APU with its capture width. But at the same time, he has such a permission that he can hardly identify the object of interest. That is, the next satellite following it should already be aimed at a specific square. And he will already have a very decent resolution. If you believe open data - 15 cm. However, the size of the "frame" will be approximately 2x2 or 3x3 km. But it is not a fact that the same APU, which was detected by the "first" satellite, will be in the square necessary for the satellite, and not "will be washed away."

    Civil (commercial) satellites - these are earth remote sensing satellites that operate in several parts of the spectrum at once. And sometimes these areas "overlap" each other. It is very difficult to disguise yourself in this case. For, for example, an object, for example, can mask itself in the "green" zone of the spectrum. And here in a yellow-green area or green-blue - he may not succeed. True, the resolution of such satellites is of the order of 0-30 m, which means that an object as a "spot" will be detected, but alas, it will not be able to be identified.

    Launching thousands of satellites into orbit will probably create an enduring headache, but it is still impossible to say what resolution this "network" will have

    It is possible to create an ICBM in the dimensions of a 40-foot container, but the question is asked. Even two:
    1. What will be the characteristics of such an ICBM
    2. Why do you need to create such a rocket. The experience gained during the trial operation of the F-22 "Verenitsa" rocket and the developments obtained as a result of the creation of the "Courier" indicate that such a complex will have an order of magnitude more problems than the current PGRK

    Quote: Nestor Vlahovski
    The only question remains - why is it necessary to tie the missile system to the railway infrastructure, if the same container can be pulled by a truck tractor.

    There is no need to tie the complex to the railway. Moreover, it is very expensive to deploy one division, and to deploy many divisions - we are unlikely to pull. Moreover, even the USSR did not pull it, deploying only 3 divisions instead of the planned seven. The same is true with the tractor unit and general roads. To launch a tractor with a nuclear missile unaccompanied is stupid. With accompaniment - this is an unmasking sign.
