67

Russia has announced a strategic exercise for the Thunder triad. According to a source close to the Ministry of Defense, the exercises of the strategic forces will be held in the near future.


According to the source cited TASSThe Thunder strategic command post exercise is scheduled for early 2022 and will take place shortly. At the same time, he did not name the specific dates of the exercises, in which all three components of Russia's strategic nuclear forces will take part. Note that there was no official information from the Russian Ministry of Defense regarding the SNF exercises, although the military department confirmed plans to conduct the Thunder and Vostok exercises in 2022, again without disclosing specific dates.

Recall that as part of the nuclear triad exercises, the military is launching intercontinental ballistic and cruise missiles. Usually, nuclear submarine missile carriers of the Northern and Pacific fleets are launched at one missile at the Kura test ranges in Kamchatka and Chizha in the Arkhangelsk region, the Strategic Missile Forces launches ICBMs of a silo or mobile complex, air-launched cruise missiles launch strategic missile carriers and bombers.

According to the latest data released by the Russian Ministry of Defense following the December conference call, the share of modern weapons in the Russian nuclear triad has reached 89,1%, which is historical a record. At the same time, rearmament with new missile systems continues, and the infrastructure necessary for the strategic nuclear forces is being created. As stated in the military department, 95% of all ground launchers of the Strategic Missile Forces are on round-the-clock combat duty and are ready for use at any time.

Russia's Strategic Nuclear Forces (SNF) are a nuclear triad consisting of a ground component (Strategic Missile Forces), a naval component (SSBN as part of the Navy) and an aviation component (strategic missile carriers and bombers as part of the Aerospace Forces).

          Sarmatom from Plesetsk would not hurt, but at full range to point Nemo in the Pacific Ocean.

          It was during Soviet times that the Pacific Ocean region was regularly closed in order to lower inert warheads there. I remember the coordinates were printed in the newspapers. For more than 30 years, nothing like this has happened.

    It is a good New Year's tradition, which has been going on for more than one year, to conduct comprehensive SNF exercises with training launches. Vital measures both in the military and, even more so, in the political context. And the military is training, and the politicians "do not relax the rolls."

    New is well forgotten old (c)
    My teacher used to say: “Those who have a short memory are doomed to repeat their mistakes again and again ...” Apparently in Washington, memory is bad. Or they could rummage through the annals and recall the year 1982, June, the strategic exercises of our strategic nuclear forces, which went down in history as the "SEVEN-HOUR NUCLEAR WAR". But generations of politicians are changing, and young Washington hawks believe they are smarter and cooler than their predecessors.
    Therefore, I will remind them and all of us "the history of the issue."
    According to the "exercise legend," the rash and often provocative actions of the United States and its NATO allies have led to a sharp aggravation of relations between the two opposing systems. Attempts by Soviet diplomats to normalize the situation have led nowhere. Moreover, in Central Europe, on the line dividing the armies of potential adversaries, armed clashes took place, which further inflamed the situation. With each passing hour, the sides are getting closer and closer to the moment when it will be impossible to resolve the conflict by peaceful means.
    The first to cross the "Rubicon" was the US President, who ordered his armed forces to begin full-scale military operations against the USSR. In these conditions the leadership of our country has decided to deliver a preemptive nuclear strike against the territory of the United States and other NATO member countries.
    This "blow" became the apotheosis of those teachings. He was "inflicted" on Friday, June 18th. Within just seven hours (hence the unofficial name of the exercises so beloved by everyone), the following were launched in the Soviet Union:
    • three space launch vehicles,
    • two ground-based intercontinental ballistic missiles,
    • one sea-launched ballistic missile,
    • one medium-range ballistic missile,
    • two anti-missiles.

    The chronicle of that day is impressive.

    The first, at 6 o'clock GMT (hereinafter, all times are given by Greenwich Mean Time), from one of the sites of the Kapustin Yar training ground, launched the Pioneer MRBM (15Ж45). After 25 minutes. the training BG successfully hit the target in the area of ​​the Emba training ground in Kazakhstan.
    Then the R-92M SLBM (RSM-667, 29M50) was launched from the RPK SN K-3 (project 40BD), from a submerged position in the Barents Sea, at the Kura training ground in Kamchatka.
    Following them, two UR-100 (15A35) ICBMs were launched from silos at the Baikonur cosmodrome. Their BB were successfully intercepted by 2 A-350R anti-missiles launched from the Sary-Shagan training ground in Kazakhstan.
    At 11:4 a.m., the Cyclone-90 (2K11) launch vehicle launched from the 69th site of the Baikonur cosmodrome, which launched the Kosmos-1379 interceptor satellite (IS-P 'Uran') into low-earth orbit. On the 2nd orbit, he tried to intercept the target, the role of which was played by the target satellite "Cosmos-1378" (IS-M 'Lyra'), which imitated the American navigation satellite of the "Transit" type. The interception was unsuccessful - Kosmos-1379 failed to approach the target at the required distance and it was detonated without causing damage to the “enemy”.
    At 11 hours 58 minutes from the 2nd launcher of the 132nd platform of the Plesetsk cosmodrome, the Kosmos-3M (11K65M) spacecraft was launched with the Kosmos-1380 satellite on board. This launch, as well as the flight of the interceptor satellite "Kosmos-1379", was unsuccessful - the spacecraft entered an off-design orbit and after 9 days, on June 27, burned out in the dense layers of the earth's atmosphere.
    At 13 o'clock, the Soyuz-U (6A31U) rocket launched from the 11th launcher of the 511st site of the Baikonur cosmodrome, which launched the Kosmos-1381 (Zenit-6) photographic reconnaissance satellites into orbit. This is the only space launch of that day that was successful - the reconnaissance aircraft fully completed its mission and after a 13-day flight, on July 1, the descent vehicle landed safely on the territory of the USSR.
    In addition, at the same time, several missile launchers were launched from the strategic bombers Tu-95 and Tu-160, as well as from ships of the USSR Navy, launches of ground-based OTR, launches of anti-aircraft missiles. And much more happened that day, which literally and figuratively shook our planet.

    The leaders of the United States and other NATO countries were shocked by the power that was shown to them.
    Apparently the lesson did not go for the future. Well, I'll have to repeat it. But already on a modern technical basis.

      1-There is an expiration date. Radioactive materials change their chemical composition over time. Plus, everything else changes the properties of the fur.
      2-tests are prohibited by valid contracts.
      And there is no special need, enough statistics have been accumulated to compile adequate mat models.

    Usually, nuclear submarine missile carriers of the Northern and Pacific fleets are launched at one missile at the Kura test ranges in Kamchatka and Chizha in the Arkhangelsk region, the Strategic Missile Forces launches ICBMs of a silo or mobile complex, air-launched cruise missiles launch strategic missile carriers and bombers.

    It's kind of liquid.
    It seems to me that it would be more correct for the launches to be carried out by every submarine and every plane.
    It is clear that every mine will not be able to, but at least one missile of each type - that would be a real test of technology and a real training of personnel.

      I will not say about boats, but apparently, the same as with airplanes.
      But I'll tell you directly about the planes - even in the years of our most rabid "Soviet military clique", the Tu-22m3 regiment launched 1-2 missiles a year, and they were preparing for this event (licking planes and missiles) for at least six months.

        So am I about the same.
        This is real combat readiness. What the hell is there a counter-blow,

          But I don't quite agree.
          Our regiment as part of the MRA division came under the control of the GIMO (Main Inspectorate of the Ministry of Defense). The head of the inspection group (lieutenant general) himself chose two crews from the regiment's "combat" planning table, and set the task - to fly to the Crimea, and in a few days to launch 2 (two) missiles at the "Caspian" range. Our crews did an excellent job, but not everything went as it should with the neighboring regiment.

            It's not even funny.
            IMHO SNF should be ready to launch missiles in a few minutes.
            And not 2 missiles, but a full ammunition load.
            Otherwise, all this is "absurdity and corruption", as the "wild ensign" used to say,

              You do not understand me.
              I talked about the launch of cruise missiles from a Tu-22m3 aircraft, and not about the strategic nuclear forces. And a few days later, because it was still necessary to fly from the Far East to the Crimea, closer to the working range. And about the full ammunition load, I'll tell you this - how much money will we replenish it after launch?
              In general, we are talking about different things, but you are also mired in dreams.

                This is yes.
                Denyuzhka has to be counted.
                Even if the infantry is given 10 rounds of ammunition from a machine gun, then what kind of extra rocket they need to fire ...

    I would like the conscripts not to be forgotten during launches and on combat duty. Our shift accepted 18 combat training orders (although I did not understand how they differed from the combat ones), the regiment commander and the chief of staff for the order, and we are grateful to the regiment from Brezhnev without a record in the military card. They say it would be useful for retirement. soldier
