The US Navy conducted another test of the Trident II D5LE intercontinental ballistic missile

35

The US Navy conducted another test of the upgraded Trident II D5LE intercontinental ballistic missile. According to the command of the American fleet, the tests were found to be successful.


Details of the tests are not given, the US Navy's Twitter page says that the tests took place in the Atlantic Ocean, and that the United States is ready for strategic containment. Judging by the photo, the ICBM was launched from the submarine in a submerged position. Previously, almost all tests were carried out from the Ohio-class SSBN ("Ohio"), which are carriers of data from intercontinental ballistic missiles.

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.

In total, since 1989, the US Navy has conducted about two hundred launches of these missiles to confirm their combat readiness.

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.

      As I understand it, this is sarcasm about Russia. I must say that sarcasm, in my opinion, is overly evil.

          And about the relics (sorry, relics), of course, we will show. Let's catch up with Italy in terms of GDP, and as soon as - so immediately. Oops. Looked at List of countries by GDP (nominal), Italy is still a long way off. Not in this five-year plan. In this case, we will catch up with Panama in terms of PPP GDP per capita. Looked at List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita - push quite a bit to Panama. And as we go around Panama, we will show power and anger.

            It’s bad to feel flawed. You can envy the American homeless person by comparing (!) The GDP of Russia and the United States. Only such Svidomo citizens in Russia are not so many as in the neighboring "happy" country. In any case, the last vote showed it.
            You introduce yourself as a Russian citizen. Apparently you are ashamed of your origin or hide it in order to pass it off as your own. This is unlikely to work.

              Born in Tomsk in 1964 (more precisely, Tomsk-7), I have lived my entire adult life in Krasnoyarsk. Parents were also born in Siberia, I'm not quite sure about grandparents. On the paternal side - exactly Siberians, and on the maternal side, it seems, from the exiles. I'm not ashamed of the origin. One grandfather is Pole, the other is Ukrainian, grandmothers are Russian. I am not trying to pass off as "mine" with "you" - you are definitely not mine. If you get out of my country - I will only be glad. It is very easy to check my actual data. Come here

              I am the only Russian author there. Then follow the links, and now you know everything about me, and write me a letter, and I answer and confirm that it is me. Why not give you my mail at once? And so that the service does not seem like honey to you.

      In fact, Bulava fell short of the characteristics of Trident-2. Another thing is that there is already enough, but we have not reached parity in mixed fuel.

          What's the point of bragging? Such launches are warned in advance. Is that in order to hint to someone that the early warning system is still working, but, apparently, there are no doubters now.

    A little clarification - not one, but two.
    From the nuclear submarine USS Wyoming (SSBN-742) of the Ohio class, located off the coast of Florida.

    There was a time when men went out to fight each other with a sword in their hands. Today men, sitting in an iron capsule under water, can destroy entire cities without seeing the enemy. Why do earthlings need such "progress" ?! In order to end it, to reduce the planet Earth from its orbit. And everything goes to this. Earthlings, where are we going? fool

      Well, consider it. And then already tired of this "will." As a child, I was promised that we would live under communism. Then they promised to have a separate apartment, then - that they would catch up with Portugal, then - something else ... And all the time - we will, we will build, we will catch up ... I am already confused in these future times.
      Let's consider it already. Right now. Well, or from Monday.

          With what other visa-free? In 2018, for a trip to the United States on COSPAR, my colleague and I had to move from Krasnoyarsk to Vladivostok to apply for a visa at the consulate. Moreover, the procedure began as soon as the invitation came from the organizing committee - and still, the visa was given after the end of the conference. And in 2019, for a trip to Beijing (also at the invitation of the host country), I had to apply for a visa. And in 2020, to travel to Australia for the next COSPAR (also at the invitation of the organizing committee), it was necessary to apply for a visa - but then a covid happened, so COSPAR-2020 was first moved to 2021, and then to the distance in general.
