Strategic Missile Forces Day: The main component of the Russian "nuclear triad" continues to be updated

Today, December 17, servicemen of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces celebrate their professional holiday.


The Strategic Missile Forces are the main component of our "nuclear triad" and, in fact, the guarantee of our country's security. After all, it is no secret to anyone that the only factor that today does not allow the collective West to start a military campaign against Russia is our nuclear potential.

By the way, this is precisely why the strategic nuclear forces in our country are an instrument of deterrence, not an attack, as Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stated, emphasizing that there can be no winners in a nuclear war.

It is worth recalling that the only country in the world that used the atomic bomb against civilians is the United States. On August 9, 1945, American bombers attacked the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing tens of thousands of people.

However, if at that time the United States had such an opportunity, today the option of a nuclear strike is practically excluded.

First, the US is not the only country with a nuclear capability. Importantly, we have parity with the Americans in this regard.

Secondly, modern nuclear warheads are not comparable in power to the same "Fat Man" that was dropped on Nagasaki. For comparison, the power of the aforementioned bomb was about 21 kilotons, while for the Minuteman III and PC-24 Yars this figure reaches 0,3-0,6 Mt.

Taking into account the fact that more than three hundred ICBMs are on combat duty only in the Strategic Missile Forces of each country, there really will be no winner after a hypothetical exchange of blows. At the same time, if you believe some scientists, then humanity, in principle, risks ceasing to exist in the event of a nuclear war.

It is worth noting that today the Strategic Missile Forces of the RF Armed Forces continue to develop.

In April, Russia tested the most powerful ICBM in the world, the RS-28 Sarmat, which could enter service as early as the end of the year. Reportedly, the unique characteristics of the missile make it possible to bypass all currently existing missile defense systems.

In addition, the re-equipment of the Strategic Missile Forces continues from outdated, but still quite reliable Topols to Yars. Another missile of this type was recently loaded into a silo launcher at the Kozelsky missile formation.

The Strategic Missile Forces of the RF Armed Forces are on continuous combat duty and are ready at any moment to carry out the order of the Commander-in-Chief. That is why Russian citizens today can not be afraid of a treacherous attack by NATO, which has crept up almost close to our borders.

    it would be much better if nuclear weapons were placed in Cuba; Well, the first thing is that you don’t need to make such expensive banduras - from the island of freedom to the state of Florida, it’s just nothing - the Jews can’t get a divorce for loot; the second is to create an air defense system in Cuba much easier and not expensive; so that it is impossible to do without transferring the war from the territory of the USSR to the American continent; it’s a little more difficult with Venezuela, but if Comrade Xi Kim Chen and Ayatollah help us in any way they can, then the Venezuelan army can be armed, in addition, it is necessary to arrange a coup d’état in the manner of the Jews in Mexico and bring a loyal government to power because the border between Mexico and the United States should blaze in war; and if we sit like marmots in our mink, then nothing will work

I had a childhood friend, now deceased, who served his entire adult life in the Strategic Missile Forces, and it was he who spent most of his service on combat duty! That's why I know a little about your service.
    Once again, Happy Holidays! Peaceful and clear skies to you!

    If earlier they said that guns are the last argument of kings, today the Strategic Missile Forces are the last argument of the state.
    And yet - the only allies of Russia are the army and navy, today it is the army, navy and the Strategic Missile Forces.

      Hello! (Although, it seems, this is not accepted on the forums).
      I will not give out military secrets if I say that there is no security (passive).
      Well, disguise - partially, sometimes, can help ... (Optical!). Contrary to others, - not special .. I suspect - very expensive, and not used.
      The underlying factor (so far) is remoteness!
      Few people are insured against "internal" enemies - there are separate services, it seems - heavily funded, but - IMHO - very relaxed! ...
      Ahem... We often have this topic: the invested funds do not correspond to the return.
      I understand perfectly well that the return cannot be linear! Noo..

        There is such a personal opinion that America played us like a fish with agreements on limiting what makes them puffy and hooked. We do not need to play at limitation, and the only topic of negotiations can only be the non-location of atomic weapons outside national territories. All scales of treaties, sanctions, obligations and goodwill steps must be sent to a historical address known from the beginning of Time. And with regards to Poplars and other seedlings: it is necessary to make cars for light monoblock rockets, railway complexes with less visibility and greater security.

          A highly controversial opinion ... It seems
          priority will depend heavily on the application concept. (Suspicious - with this, now, it is especially tense, tight ...).
          Nevertheless, I hear machine-gun fire from the shooting range .... On a holiday! ... I would like to believe that they are not showing off ... Maybe other security officials are training ... Which, in fact, is also not bad ..

              Are you on emotions? (I can understand - sometimes I myself am like that) ...
              Or a professional defeatist? (Not exactly like...).
              Let's try to find at least something close to the truth? (By virtue of the available data)? Yeah?
              So - how did you "tie" the course of the NWO to the Strategic Missile Forces?
              In general, this issue can be stopped. But, let me give you some clarification (don't take it as arrogance, please).
              The Strategic Missile Forces, on the one hand, have NEVER been used for their intended purpose ... (I barely have time to dodge slippers flying at me from colleagues who deservedly celebrated their professional holiday ..))).
              On the other hand, the Strategic Missile Forces, from the moment of its foundation, has been fulfilling its duty, mission, for a long time (since 59), and CONTINUOUSLY!
              I wrote here many times: Yes, - unlike many other branches, types of troops, earthly strategists can never even see the enemy in all the years of service! The maximum available is the target number (and not for everyone, and it’s always clear even what region it is, and it can change in the last seconds ...).
              But ... As it seems to me, this does not at all beg for the expended strength, lost health, and so on ...
              I don’t want to compete with any of my comrades-in-arms! Everyone pulls his own strap! (meet everywhere - today is not about that ...).
              And, please, don't spoil the holiday for people!
              Believe me, there are, indeed, enough worthy people there! (For example, if you sometimes see TV, the hospital named after Burdenko, the head doctor P. Krainyukov ...).
              I started my service in our missile regiment ... I don’t know a single colleague, neighbor, - whom I didn’t help ... (I’m embarrassed to contact))), - but I know, they won’t refuse!).
              Sorry for the lengthy answer. Let's celebrate. remotely. Radial-bush ... Time zones are different ... (But, on the remote control, I hope - MSK time.
              I agree - celebrating at least something, now, is at least not decent ... (((
              Glory to our guys, the men at the forefront!
              And, I would not want to ... Well, - 24.02. after the Defender of the Fatherland Day (a tortured holiday - I'm talking about the name, the method of celebration - if anything! ..). In short, I hope that 18.12. will not sound "...I decided to start ...".
              ... But many even beg on this site!
              Yes, I don’t mind! (I only feel sorry for the children .., the rest, the majority - there is something for that ...). Psychologists startled? (I always passed all the tests without problems))).
              Does it sound insane? So carefully read off your emotional appeals! The Baltic states, Ukraine - in nuclear trash !!! Yes, even if Britain is lowered below the zero mark of the world ocean ... Will this improve the situation? Scary? Of course, part of North America will stir up ... But not so much that it becomes easier for us! And Europe, as an economic guarantor, will no longer exist ...
              Tell about China)))?

          There are A LOT of contradictions in this text.
          ICBMs, RF Armed Forces are either in the mines (protection coefficients, the probability of defeat, even "sofa" specialists are difficult to predict ..
          PGRK, ... They are deep in the territory of the Russian Federation ... I understand that the satellite constellation of the hostile alliance has more information about them than I, a military pension, who lives 300 meters from the headquarters of the RD .. What they can, they do! (I suspect - they could have done more ...) With a different system ... A different attitude, upbringing (now the children of my colleagues (!).
          About monoblock, you seem to be completely out of the loop ... We read the contracts, study the mat. part ... (At least according to Wiki ...)
