The Ministry of Defense has launched the construction of infrastructure for testing ICBM RS-28 "Sarmat"

The Ministry of Defense has launched the construction of an infrastructure for flight tests of the Sarmat heavy intercontinental ballistic missile; work is underway on the territory of the Krasnoyarsk Territory.


According to the plans of the military department, the facility will be built near the village of Severo-Yeniseisky, Krasnoyarsk Territory. Construction is carried out by the Main Military Construction Directorate No. 14, which specializes in the construction of strategic facilities.

The first phase, which provides for the deforestation of a vast area and the laying of dirt roads, should be ready by April this year. The work is planned to be fully completed by the end of 2022, they write "News".

According to military experts, the Ministry of Defense intends to build a trajectory measurement point in Severo-Yeniseisk, equipped with radars and optical observation devices, since the missiles are flying over the village, launched during tests from the Dombarovsky area of ​​the Orenburg region at the Kura test site in Kamchatka.

Prior to this, tests of the "Sarmat" were carried out at the Plesetsk cosmodrome and were limited to three drop launches.

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.

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 first complexes will enter service with the Uzhursky and Dombarovsky missile formations.

    ICBM RS-28 "Sarmat" (oh, the future - "Diablo"?) are being prepared to replace the world's most powerful silo-based ICBMs, the RS-20V Voevoda (NATO - SS-18 "Satan"), the rocket will become the carrier of the Avangard hypersonic units.

    That is, after three throw tests and a certain number of launches (successful or not), obviously not exceeding the three previous ones, will the missile be launched into a series and put on alert?
    Lovely, lovely.

      Lovely, lovely.
      What are the stupid comments here? Ignorance is the scourge of modernity! They forgot to tell you about the tests of the "Saramat" and consult with you whether or not you need to take this complex into service! laughing

        What was written in the article, that's what I'm asking.

      ========
      The key word is "some".... Usually for missiles of this class, the number of test launches ranges from 10 to 20 .... Maybe more, maybe less .... It all depends on number of innovations in construction and successful launches, well and something else ...
      At one time, the Americans, in just 2 years, conducted 15 launches (including throw ones) of the "improved" "Trident" (in fact - the new missiles) of which only 11 were recognized completely successful (!) and immediately adopted ...
      PS How many tests of "Sarmat" are planned for the current year - request How will they go? request what For example, 10 launches per year is quite realistic ... Well, if the rocket is mainly used already well worked constructive solutions ... then it is quite possible that this will be enough (unless, of course, there will be no failures) ...

        It remains to hope that there will be no such problems as with the Bulava, which did not want to fly long enough and persistently. But that was a completely new SLBM.

            Well yes. For the sake of unification, they took away bread from the Makeev Design Bureau. And therefore, due to the lack of experience in the development of SLBMs, Solomonov's rocket did not fly. As a result, the unification turned out to be only in the upper stage and the bare part.
            But they did not manage to surpass the old woman "Sineva".

              Not quite so, Sergey! "Undercover" intrigues here, too, of course took place .... But something else worked: Mayevsky "Bark" turned out to be too extremely unfortunate, Also significant some of the elements of the "Bark" were produced in Ukraine,. And although relations with Ukraine were then quite decent and even friendly, they considered it quite risky. And "import substitution" seemed to be a rather complicated thing ..... So they decided to "unify" it with the rather successful "Topol" ... request

    It is not entirely clear what they decided to build there, but they chose practically the center of Russia.

    Sarmatians are also made in Krasnoyarsk, at Krasmash. And they will be put on duty in Uzhur (also Krasnoyarsk Territory). So Krasnoyarsk residents look not only at "optical observation devices" behind ICBMs laughing

    We have already exchanged notes. So the contract is officially extended.

    Generally speaking, Sergey's comment is not at all stupid. There hasn't been ANY flight test yet, but are we already declaring that they will be in service in 2022? Maybe in December 2022 - this is possible, but saying in advance is not the best option.
    By the way, it is not clear about Severo-Yeniseisk. When they just started talking about this place, they talked about building a landfill. Now about the point of trajectory measurements.

    And when testing the Vanguard, did they do without this point of trajectory measurements?

    Launched from the PR of the 13th division. Where will "Sarmat" be launched. From PR Uzhurskaya or from Plesetsk - it is not entirely clear. At least I think that the first launches will take place from Plesetsk.

    They will be staging not only in Uzhur, but also in Yasnoye.

    "Sarmat" is also a completely new missile. And I'm afraid that problems will get in, whether we like it or not

    With "Sarmat" the situation seems to be diametrically opposite ...

    Not really, namesake. The unification took place according to design solutions, but not in terms of overall and mass characteristics. Agree, if the 1st stage of the "Bulava" has dimensions of 3,8 m length and 2 meters in diameter at 18,6 tons, while for "Poplar" these figures are 8,04 m, 1,8 m and 28,6 tons, respectively - it's hard to say about unification ...

    When testing Bulava, it was decided to do without practicing launches from a submerged stand. This IMHO played a role.
    In principle, the same thing is happening with "Sarmat" now. The SRC Makeeva has never made a product of such masses and dimensions. The heaviest was their P-39 with a launch weight of 90 tons. “Sarmat” has a starting line at least twice as much. The layout of SLBMs and ICBMs can be different in density. In short, there are a lot of questions.
