In response to Bulava launch: US Navy to test Trident II D5 ICBMs

The naval forces will test the upgraded Trident II D5 intercontinental ballistic missile. The test launch is planned for the period from 9 to 14 February 2021. This is stated in the American navigation warning to mariners NAVAREA.


The US Navy is closing several areas for navigation, from the launch area off the coast of Florida to the area near the British Ascension Island west of Angola. The planned range of the missile will be about 8,4 thousand kilometers.

The launch of the upgraded ICBM Trident II D5 ("Trident-2") will be carried out from the American Ohio-class SSBN ("Ohio"). It is noted that the rocket has been upgraded under the LEP life extension program and is equipped with a new, more accurate guidance system Mk6.

According to RG, in the opinion of some military experts, the US Navy is not planning an ordinary training launch, but rather a response to the recent salvo launch of Bulava from the Russian nuclear submarine Vladimir Monomakh.

Trident is a family of American submarine-based three-stage solid-propellant ballistic missiles. The missile can carry up to 14 W76 (100 kt) individual warheads or up to 8 W88 (475 kt) warheads. The upgraded missiles can carry W76-2 low-yield warheads (up to 8 kt). The maximum flight range is declared at 12 thousand kilometers.

Ohio-class strategic submarines carry 24 Trident II D5 ICBMs. The US Navy has 14 submarines of this class. Of these, eight are in the Pacific Ocean and six are in the Atlantic.

              Immediately after launch, the Trident II D5 rocket flew towards the American coast and crashed near Florida.

                      When did the United States declare war on the Russian Federation? I don’t remember that and the news is quiet. The enemy is only on the battlefield, in peacetime there are potential opponents and competitors of varying degrees of danger. In a war, warriors generally do not feel sorry for anyone, including those from the RF Military District, but this is in war.

                        for a long time they even have a plan to apply nuclear warheads across the Russian Federation to cities and to suppress air defense! current hypersound plans of Malekh spoiled! and yes all the US preziki said that the Russian Federation is an enemy!

                        The Russian Federation also has such plans. The hypersound, already in the number of 2 combat-ready heads on the previous generation missiles per year, did not fundamentally change anything, but on the contrary caused the feeling of a frivolous attempt to play political pressure without real means of its implementation across the ocean. They said that the enemy? When? The enemy, yes, I heard. Threat (even number one), heard. Enemy? No, have not heard.
                        Overseas, presidents are verifying the words for political statements.

                        3) show those where the Russian Federation tried to play political pressure on which countries? she called openly to go to war against other countries? the example of the United States always says that if you are not for the interests of the United States, then you are the enemy - this is a direct quote!
                        4) Are US Politicians Choosing Words? Are you seriously ? Recently, the United States prezik we will show its place of the Russian Federation, it will answer for hostility, etc. But what is the hostility? that hackers and election interference that was not proved! here we are getting to the words about Overseas presidents check words for political statements.! you are absolutely wrong here! well, either in the us bunnies and the Russian Federation, wolves and bunnies do not attack anyone. The current is protected by the invasion of other countries, bringing democracy while destroying the population of the country from whom they are protected!

                        1) Air defense is not an offensive weapon. The Russian Federation is also building air defense at its bases.
                        2) Where can and where the interests of the Russian Federation collide with the interests of other countries, to the best of their ability to exert such pressure. Syria (and the environment), Libya, Eastern Europe, the Baltics, Japan, the same USA ... you can continue. And who today calls to go to war openly, except for a few extreme inadequacies, such as Iranian bearded men in dresses? And proxy wars are waged today by everyone who can afford it, and the Russian Federation is no exception. There are no such direct quotes from official sources, do not come up with it, I have everything in order with English, maybe not at the level of Shakespeare in the original, but enough. Yes, they choose words, of course seriously. You don't have to choose words, but they have to. Until you show me the link to Biden's original speech, these are just your words. Hackers' interference in the American elections continues to be investigated and the evidence will be considered by the American courts, according to their laws. And their judicial system will decide what is evidence and what is not. You have it in the same way. Of course they do it. And you and VVP, though not always successfully, and in particular Lavrov is verified, the latter is your only real politician, I give him his due, even not agreeing with what he says. You no longer have such as Lavrov. No, the United States is quite hawkish, but the Russian Federation is far from being pacifists and not vegetarians. And history knows enough of the annihilated population both with the filing of the United States and with the filing of the USSR and even with the filing of the Russian Federation. No one is white or fluffy in the use of force. You will not, however, prove that the RF Ministry of Defense, using force, does it in white gloves?

          The system, of course, needs to be changed. And you can hold a meeting on one issue at a time, the main thing is that the issue has a solution. For example, what's wrong with a rally for lowering utility bills, for the abolition of interest on mortgages or for lowering gasoline prices? The question is the mass character of the rally. If, for example, you organize a rally for the abolition of interest on a mortgage, then the interest, of course, will not be canceled, but reduced to some fixed amount.

        They either out of their stupidity or naivety decided that such a country could be ruled by one person. Well, since the collapse of the country into small appanage principalities was canceled with GDP and the general plunder of the country by Western "friends", as well as the collapse of the RF Armed Forces stopped under Putin, these gentlemen decided that Putin was "to blame" for everything. And as soon as it is removed, the jackals will return. Let them not delude themselves. Repetition of the 90s will not be allowed, Crimea will not be overtaken by "Svidomo" and will not trade in its sovereignty. The team will not admit.

      Where else did 4 go?

      Due to restrictions on strategic offensive arms, they needed to reduce the number of ICBMs on submarines to 280 pieces.
      For this, 4 boats were converted into carriers of cruise missiles (154 Tomahawks) and a landing force of up to 60 people. On the remaining 14 boats, 4 mines were converted for other tasks.

        You are confusing something, the limit on the number of goals, not carriers. This is not enough on the British nuclear submarines for 2x Trident, and the United States reduced the BG on the Minuteman to 1 unit, instead of 3, and on the Trident, from 8 to 5.
        That's more correct. And 4xOgayo was really redesigned for the KR 154 pcs and the carrier of small submarines for the SSO

            Each submarine is equipped with 24 launch silos for SLBMs, but by 2018, four launchers were deactivated / deactivated on all SSBNs. Thus, the number of Trident II D-5 missiles on submarines has been reduced to 20 units.

      Redesigned for special forces. As launchers are no longer operable.

    Want to "bang"? Let them bang, and we'll see. Otherwise we all put on a show for them. I would like to see a salvo launch in their performance, but will they decide on this? Suddenly bam-bam and past ..

    will be measured ........... who has more
    But in this case it has nothing to do with it. Ours carried out test launches (how else?). The Americans have modernized the rocket, now it is necessary to conduct tests. On both sides, everything is according to plan and not contrary to the agreements.

      Then, as usual, the generals declare that the danger is growing and go to ask for money. Standard routine for most armies.

    In the western periodical, the maximum range is often declared 1000 km more. The power of W76-2 does not exceed 6Kt. And today only 20 mines are involved on each missile carrier. The rest have been converted for special purposes and are no longer operable for launching missiles.

    Previously, 24 ICBMs were carried ... Where else were 4?

    In April 2010, the START-3 Treaty was signed. According to which were limited:
    1. Number of carriers
    2. Number of warheads
    In order to comply with the ceilings of the agreement, the Americans decided to completely dismantle all the fittings of these mine PUs. Instead of covers, the shafts were closed with plugs. The number of BBs on the carriers has also been reduced. W-76-1 - up to a maximum of 8 blocks, W-88 - up to 4 blocks.

    I’m wondering now that intelligence will report to Putin that tomorrow the United States will begin to strike at the Russian Federation with nuclear and cruise missiles, does Pu have the courage to strike the first and decisive strike on the United States? the whole story is simple on the RF current attacked even when they knew that the attack was inevitable! The Russian Federation has always waited and at the same time suffered colossal losses!

    for a long time they even have a plan to apply nuclear warheads across the Russian Federation to cities and to suppress air defense! current hypersound plans of Malekh spoiled! and yes all the US preziki said that the Russian Federation is an enemy!

    And our General Staff does not have ????? I didn’t know that it turns out that only the Americans had and had plans. And the "white and fluffy" USSR, having only about 35 warheads in the 000s, had no plan for their use. "You made me an evening." Cheered up

    Greetings, Maxim! I haven't seen you for a long time
    And about 24 SLBMs continue to be written by those "magazines" who read in the same Wiki that there are 24 on "Ohio" and are not at all aware of the changes

    Putin is the successor of power of the 90s, if you have forgotten.

    I have not forgotten. But Putin put a lot of money on Yeltsin's policies, so politically he's not his successor. It was not for nothing that someone from Yeltsin's entourage said that he was disappointed in Putin.
