Russian Aerospace Forces tested a new anti-missile at the Sary-Shagan test site

30

The Russian Aerospace Forces conducted another test of a new anti-missile missile defense system (ABM) of Russia. According to the Ministry of Defense, the test was recognized as successful.


In Kazakhstan, at the Sary-Shagan training ground, a test launch of a new missile defense missile took place. According to the military, the missile hit a conditional target with a given accuracy, the topic most confirming the inherent characteristics. Rocket tests have been underway for several years, starting in 2017, one or two launches are carried out a year.

The Ministry of Defense does not disclose either the details of the test itself, or the performance characteristics of the anti-missile, limiting itself to standard phrases: "the launch was successful, the target was hit, the characteristics were confirmed." All launches take place on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan, at the Sary-Shagan test site, specially created for testing an anti-missile weapons back in the days of the Soviet Union, or rather 1956. By the way, in the early 60s of the last century, 5 air nuclear explosions were carried out over the test site at altitudes from 80 to 300 km.

According to open data, during the entire existence of the test site, 6 anti-missile systems, 12 anti-aircraft missile systems, 7 types of anti-missiles and 12 types of anti-aircraft guided missiles, as well as many other systems, have been tested. Sary-Shagan is currently being used to test a new anti-missile missile.

Despite the fact that the Ministry of Defense does not disclose the details of the tests carried out, it can be argued with high probability that a new PRS-1M (53T6M) antimissile of a new production is being tested, which is a near-echelon antimissile of the new missile defense system of Moscow and the Central Industrial Region A-235. It should replace the A-135 anti-missile systems in service.

    The speed of the PRS-1M rocket at the start is striking, on the march its speed is 4, 002 km sec. And the Zircon is twice as fast, faster than any projectile. There, you don't need an explosive in the warhead, it will sweep everything away when it hits. But let it be explosive, for reliability.

        That's for sure. They will confuse "swing" with "swinging", then their Earth is flat, then the Sun revolves around the Earth ... wassat
        Machs determine the speed of sound in air. Therefore, the numerical value depends on the state of the air itself: pressure, temperature, humidity. Near the earth's surface 1 max will be approximately equal to 340 m / s.
        Therefore, 4, 002 km / s is approximately 11, 77 mach. yes

        Not 30, of course, but 10. At the start, the rocket has an overload of up to 210 g, hence the weight (fuel), the launch is practically a shot. In terms of speed, different sources speak differently - up to 5,5 km / s

    I am glad for the next success of our defense industry. But who didn’t think that it’s time to transfer such a test site to the territory of Russia?
    Our military specialists left "Baikonur", the civilians seem to be collecting their things, but they were late in "Sary-Shagani", especially since these are very close territories

      If it is preferable to shoot down ICBMs at the acceleration stage, then it is advisable to transfer the anti-missiles to cruise-class ships concentrated in the areas of the proposed patrol of nuclear-powered ships and off the enemy's coast.

      I agree.
      It is high time to cut Kazakhstan down to Lake Balkhash.
      The rest should be returned home to Russia.

      In Moscow, the borders of the Kazakh SSR were drawn at one time, in Moscow it is necessary to abolish these borders.

    Twice as much as 4 km / s - that's Mach 24. Obviously a mistake.
    At an altitude, the speed of sound is 295 m / s, 4 km / s is Mach 13.5. At the ground, such speeds are unrealistic, but then there would be 12 swings.

    Sary-Shagan ... How much of this sound has merged for the heart of the PEV!
    They shot well there in 1981. Yes, and saigas in the Urals from the heart drove. The whole regiment then ate saiga for two days.
    Ehh youth, youth ..

    Hypersound can also intercept an anti-missile at a lower speed, but of course there is no excess speed. But until the separation of the warheads, this missile will not be able to intercept. Its range is much shorter than the distance at which the BG separation begins.

    This missile has a mass of about 10 tons.

    It is simply impossible to shoot down ICBMs at the acceleration stage. laughing They are most often located in the interior of the state. SLBMs - yes, but, unfortunately, our such protivorake6ta has such dimensions that it will not fit into the ship, and we have fewer cruising-class ships in our ranks than fingers on one hand. The adversary has smaller dimensions and they are even placed in a destroyer.

    This should have been done before the collapse of the Union, when there was a referendum and at the same time it would have been necessary to raise the question of liquidating the national republics and make them regions and territories (provinces, as Zhirinovsky suggested). Now the train has already left. Of course, you can dream of what you are writing, but it is UNREALABLE ...

      To shoot it down at the acceleration stage of launching the combat load, it is necessary to have a speed higher than its growth at the target, otherwise it will not "catch up" in the atmosphere, but in the "suborbital", you still need to find the warheads and aim at them with ballistic calculations and constant correction, plus anti-missile missiles should be AGSN - very "smart" and strongly "sighted", and a couple of stages with a separate orbital maneuvering unit already in a vacuum, not in the atmosphere ...

    And what is there to reveal. They fired at a conditional target, which means that the rocket had to pass through a certain area of ​​space at the moment t. The performance characteristics of the PRS-1 antimissiles are known. Therefore, they are limited to the standard phrases "the launch was successful, the target was hit, the characteristics were confirmed." The tests will continue until the transatmospheric interceptor of the A-235 system is ready. And it is very patriotic to just shout GOOD FUCKS during a test, where nothing goes astray. But stupid

    So to speak. Speed, of course, is a necessary thing, but in this case, the main thing is the range of the interceptor. For, for example, the OUT of the same R-36M2 (SS-18) ICBM is an altitude of about 400 km and a range of about 700-800 km from the launch point. If the ICBM starts from the PR of the Uzhur division (through the North Pole), then to the coast of the Arctic Ocean from the point of the start of disengagement is about 1400-1500 km. The interception issue will be practically insoluble (this is a separate conversation). And aiming an anti-missile at an already separated warhead is not the best option.
