The dates for the start of flight design tests of the RS-28 "Sarmat" ICBM have been announced

53

The Ministry of Defense has decided on the start of flight design tests (LKI) of the newest Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile. In total, within this stage, three launches will be carried out in 2021.


According to sources from the defense industry, the words of which are quoted TASS, tests will begin in the third quarter of this year, all three launches will be made from a silo located on the territory of the Plesetsk cosmodrome, traditionally used by the military for testing. One of the planned launches will be at maximum range.

State tests of the "Sarmat" will start in 2022 with the first regiment being put on alert at the end of the year.

The Ministry of Defense does not comment on this information, but as the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko stated, the stage of missile throw tests has been completed successfully and the Ministry of Defense is moving on to flight tests. True, he did not name the dates. And just a month ago, the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin announced the imminent start of flight design tests of the Sarmat ICBM.

In principle, the sources confirmed the information previously announced by the military that the LCI stage will begin and will be completed in 2021, and the complex will be on alert in 2022. There was also information that this year the industry should master the serial production of Sarmat ICBMs. but so far no information has been received on this matter.

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.

        laughing but what about the performance characteristics? in fact it will be the same Satan, only with new warheads and means of protection .. the question is only among hypersonic warheads .. I think there will be 10 of them too

          lol
          In one thing, you are right - there will be no more silos than we had, the Governor, there will be no silos of Sarmatov.
          According to the Ministry of Defense, "Sarmat" will be able to carry up to 20 warheads of small, medium and high power classes. Also on the "Sarmat" can be installed three gliding hypersonic winged units "Avangard".

          And there are more than one "buses". wink

        The creators of the newest intercontinental ballistic missile "Sarmat" have revealed its tactical and technical characteristics for the first time, the RIA Novosti correspondent reports from the "Army-2019" forum. In the corresponding brochure, available to forum visitors, it is indicated that the firing range of the "Sarmat" is 18 thousand kilometers, launch weight - 208,1 tons, payload weight - about ten tons.

        Yes, it seems there are already several "Vanguards" on duty !!!! Or I'm wrong ..

          And they are interested in megababakhs only in terms of knocking out their budget. In this regard, Sarmat is not very good. Here is a CD with a nuclear engine that rushed into Severodvinsk or a torpedo with a dirty bomb, which gives a budget. And Sarmat ... well, a little bit about Voevod-istei ... no, not that glow.

              These are all assumptions, and even the announced figures fit well into the well-known physics. In order to fly to the maximum distance, the load should be about half, well, maybe a little more than half. Pieces of 6 charges for 300-500kt can probably carry. But is it worth it to fence the piece flying columns? For containment, when this is a small fraction of ~ 1800 charges on the OBD of about one and a half thousand carriers, it is clearly not worth it. For political threats, yes, the only question is whether the effect will be reversed ...

It is clear that not the Kura in Kamchatka - after all, but the Sarmat's range was announced at 18 thousand km! Doubled more length of the Russian Federation from west to east!

        What are you, American spies? Well, does it really matter where she flies? The main thing is to fly. And then when "Satan" was tested for something, you did not ask all such questions, and you did not know about the tests of "Satan", and now everyone has become so curious ... I personally do not care about how and where the "Sarmat" will be tested. ... The main thing is to be tested and put into service.

    Sarmat is not a toy, and its launch at a distance is not an entertainment show. We will be shown its launch on a short trajectory near the ground, and only a couple of weeks after the event. The characteristics are approximate, and this should please everyone - a nuclear strike on America can come from any side of the world, from very deep space. The Americans will not be able to catch such a "gift" - the flight speed is too high - almost like a meteorite.

If Stiletto carried 6 of the same blocks as Voivode 10, then Sarmat will be able to carry no more than two Vanguards, and why then this huge and expensive liquid monster, which will be made one piece a year?

    O. has said so much about "Sarmat", especially Yuri Borisov, that his ears twist into a tube and his hair stands on end. This comrade did not say anything. And mostly in the media they are now citing performance characteristics based on his statements. And what he just didn’t say. Offhand:
    1. The flight range of the "Sarmat" is 18 km.
    2. Throwable weight 10 tons
    3. "Sarmat" can strike through the South Pole, delivering 10 tons of "gifts" to the target
    These are only the most "wild" ones that oppose themselves. And what would seem easier. There are existing constants that are known to the designers of such products. And knowing which engines are used on the product, you can find out the approximate launch weight, and the throw weight, and the weight of the warheads themselves. But this is not interesting. But to declare that this is another "wunderwaffe" is easier. And most importantly "there is no need to answer for the market" (this is about Yuri Borisov)

    You will have to wait very, very long to wait for the "Sarmat" with its nominal load to complete a full orbit around the earth. As they say in such cases: "People do not live so much"

    1. Nobody is going to replace all Sarmat warheads with Vanguards.
    2. Yes, 460 BG "Sarmat" can theoretically be replaced by 80-115 "Yarsami". Here are just at least 8-13 new regiments (2-4 divisions). How do I deploy them? If from "scratch" - it's just gigantic colossal amounts. After all, it will be necessary not only to create such a number of missiles, but also to create positional areas. If it is mine - to dig new mines (or to modernize old ones), if mobile - to buy not only chassis for launchers, but also the entire range of wheeled vehicles.
    Create infrastructure, and not only army, but also civilian. Create military camps, schools and all other civilian infrastructure.
    There is another option - to deploy new regiments in existing divisions, but in any case, it is expensive and time consuming.
    3. How many "Vanguards" the "Sarmat" can carry is still unknown. Purely theoretically, without reference to all the performance characteristics of the "Vanguard" - from 2 to 5.
    4. How much will "Sarmatov" make a year - so far no one has announced this figure. And those that were voiced - it is not clear how well reasoned. For example, I've heard the number 10 a year. How Real - HZ

    The range of missiles is also tested by their launch upwards, along a parabola. Remember Koreans

    And what does it give? The North Koreans are doing this out of despair, and you propose to conduct such tests for us too? But there is an empirical formula that with such a launch, the flight altitude is approximately equal to half the ballistic range. That is, if we need to have a flight range of about 30 km when firing through the South Pole, then we will have to throw the rocket to an altitude of 000 km. Who can do this? At the same time, there is absolutely no guarantee that in real life such a product will reach the target and hit it ...
