"The first after the extension of START-3": Russia and the United States exchanged data on nuclear arsenals

33

After the extension of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START-3), the first exchange of data on the nuclear arsenals of the two countries took place between Russia and the United States. This is stated in the message of the American State Department.


Russia and the United States have updated data on strategic forces. The last exchange of information between Moscow and Washington took place last year and reflected data on the number of strategic delivery vehicles and nuclear warheads as of September 1, 2020.

According to new data, Russia has increased the number of nuclear warheads and their carriers, while the United States, on the contrary, has reduced it. As follows from the report, during the reporting period, Russia increased the number of nuclear warheads by nine, bringing their total number to 1456 (in September last year it was 1447).

The United States has reduced the number of nuclear warheads by 100, bringing their number to 1357; in September 2020, the report indicated 1457 warheads.

During the same period, Russia put into operation three carriers of nuclear weapons, indicating the number of deployed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), submarine ballistic missiles (SLBMs) ​​and heavy bombers - 517, up from 510 last September.

The United States showed a 24-unit reduction in nuclear weapons carriers, listing 651 carriers (September 2020 - 675).

In addition, Russia increased the number of deployed and non-deployed launchers by three, indicating their number equal to 767. In turn, the United States noted that their number of launchers has not changed compared to the previous reporting period and remained the same - 800 pieces.

According to the START-3 treaty, Russia and the United States must provide new data on nuclear arsenals every six months.

    It's good that ours began to increase the number of carriers and missiles. Today, it is not worth lagging behind the States even by one missile, let it be better one-to-one.

      There is still a whole series of Boreyev-A on the way - both carriers and ICBMs for them.
      And it is necessary to increase - times are difficult.

        Does the Treaty also provide for on-the-spot checks? If so, how often? And what are they checking, locations, arsenals, manufacturing plants?

      The Americans extended the treaty, but it did not seem strange to you that right after that Britain announced the build-up of nuclear weapons, given the dependence of their strategic weapons on the United States, I think it is clear from which direction the wind is blowing. The Russia-NATO treaty would not be bad.

      Well, in fact, that our Votkinsk is under the gun of a mass of satellites, that the place of production of "heads" in the United States, therefore, the exchange of data is more a formality than a necessity. Yes, there is the possibility of camouflage, false maneuvers, but I think that the total number of charges, even without data exchange, is known to us and the United States quite accurately.

    And what about tactical nuclear weapons? The chance for their use is still more realistic in the near future. Nuclear mine RYa 6 with a mass of 25 kg and an explosion power of 2kt sounds very promising.

    alas, this will never happen. Everyone puts their carriers on repair or routine maintenance according to their plans. And in order to catch up with the US carriers and get a 1: 1 ratio, we need to equip us with 134 carriers. It will take 5-6 years, at least

    Beheads can be magnified much faster than their carriers. and the carrier can be 1 nasti battle group or 9. Moreover, this change for the land part of the strategic nuclear forces business for several hours.

    Cruise missiles on ships are not considered strategic weapons. RIAC - building up these weapons is a rather costly undertaking, incl. and in time

    Unfortunately, the situation is such that in order to get parity in deployed media, we need to deploy 134 media. And the reserve, by how much we can increase the number of warheads without going beyond the START-3 restrictions - only 94. We will have to put into service "underloaded" carriers, both land and sea

    I was also interested in two of my friends. They really took part in this business while not in the VVUZ, but in the troops. Yes, not only the presence of the PU itself was checked, but also of other units. Each of the parties tried to go to some tricks, but basically each of the parties performed its functions and to say that such inspections do not give anything is not entirely correct. There was even EMNIP a couple of years ago, presenting from the Americans that there was an extra number of launchers. We didn’t have time to send it for recycling, and then a check. But it was decided

    There are limitations. But we must see if there is a restriction on the fact that the regiment is checked once for the entire time. Most likely one no more than once a year. Plus, a surprise factor appeared in the last EMNIP agreement. If earlier they talked about the place of inspection almost in a week, now EMNIP - in a day. That is, it is extremely difficult to hide very serious violations during this time.
    Especially when it comes to boats.
    As for the fact that the Strategic Missile Forces' launchers were checked through the Open Sky line, I have not heard that. And the meaning of that? For example, the flight is carried out by the Polish Air Force. What side is he in general to strategic weapons.
    Earlier, yes, I heard that the launchers were exhibited at the sites, the roofs of the cars were opened. But this applied exclusively to the BZHRK, and even then at the stage of their leaving the factory for transfer to the troops. As for the PGRK, and especially the silo, I have not heard this ...

    Well, I've heard the show of new technology that is starting to fall under the START restrictions. By the way, there are persistent rumors that we managed to show "Rubezh" to the Americans. And as a matter of course, questions arise. If the product was shown as new, then why was it not accepted for service ... But about specific launchers - thanks for the info, I didn't know ...
