French ballistic missile M-51 exploded after launchThe latest French ballistic missile M-51 exploded on Sunday during a test launch from a submerged position onboard a nuclear submarine, French media reported, citing representatives of the country's military and civilian authorities.


Tests of the missile, which under the terms of the shooting did not carry either conventional or nuclear warhead, were held off the Atlantic coast of France in the department of Finistère, RIA "News».

According to the representative of the maritime prefecture of the Atlantic region Lionel Delor, shortly after the launch of the nuclear submarine Le Vigilant, a rocket self-detonated. Delors said that the possible causes of the incident are not yet known.

The French authorities emphasize that the unsuccessful launch of the rocket could not lead to serious consequences, since the test area was closed to the movement of sea and air civilian ships in advance.

The M-51 intercontinental rocket from 2010 of the year is in service with the new generation of submarine nuclear-powered missile carriers, which are part of the Strategic Marine Forces of France. She replaced the earlier M-45 strategic ballistic missiles. Compared to its predecessor, the M-51 rocket has increased accuracy.

      They are not up to rockets right now. The problem of same-sex marriages has even displaced disputes about hijab.

        Soon, all those who disagree will be sent for re-education, it seems that somewhere there are such courses of tolerance in Norway, if I don’t confuse them, where they say that homosexuality is good.
        Men in gaybars, and their wives in lezbibaras, well, or in the Arab quarter, to beg for a step is not the tolerance of the husband.

        What the United States turned Europe into, horror ..... it would be better if the USSR did not fall apart ...

            In Germany, not yet ... I have many friends whose children study in German schools. Discussed this topic. However, whether it will be for long, I do not know this. I hope the Germans last longer than the Dutch.

    Well exploded and to hell with it, our pins also constantly explode. All this frog company is arming itself against Russia as always. One De Gaulle respected the USSR a little, and all the other pegs hated us.

      So it’s always ... From - 18 TEST launches - 6 unsuccessful. Whoever knows the statistics of the successes of failures of complexes that have faithfully served on 667's? That's the same. Guys, this is a rocket, not a scooter.

      the only significant difference is that the "Bulava" exploded on test launches, and the French already exploded into service explodes, which is much worse, it turns out the slag took !!!

        My friend, I plus you, but a small clarification: they did not accept slag, but simply this ETA rocket behaved abnormally and the self-destruction system worked. But the fact that this system worked is very good. At least something worked. Of course, I don’t like frogs, but instead of spitting “from the Eiffel Tower of“ Vladimir Semenych ”onto the heads of the careless Parisians,“ this miracle fell. ”

    Here is the news. Without even experiencing an industrial collapse in the 90s, French industry makes mistakes. No need to bark at our own, lamenting the adversaries, our industrialists demand cherishing and cherishing because in the terrible years they managed to preserve the scientific groundwork.

      Note - this missile ALREADY adopted in 2010, i.e. marriage in a serial rocket ... it happens that products are too complicated. Therefore, it is not necessary to greatly drive the Mace (NAV-STAR, this is not for you).

    Yeah, especially if you think about its formula - Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals. Is it normal? Here I was always interested - where in this situation is Russia? And where does the rest go?

    The M-51 French intercontinental ballistic missile on Sunday morning, May 5, spontaneously exploded off the Atlantic coast of France during a test launch from the Vigilant S618 nuclear submarine.

    The rocket exploded shortly after launch. There was no warhead in it, the country's defense ministry emphasized. French experts are finding out the reasons for the failed test.
    There were no serious consequences from the self-destruction of the rocket, since the training area was specially closed for air and sea navigation.
    This failure was the first for France in the last 17 years.

    Hello everybody! Guys, tell me please, do the USA generally test their ballistic missiles, make any kind of test launches? Honestly, I have never heard that they even launched something from their missile arsenal. Perhaps they will have even more failures than us with the Mace. I look at them and there are no developments in this area. Thank God our mace was shot and adopted.

    But the French military now has an iron excuse for everything:
    “It's not us. Some buggers did it!”

    Even the first-party Mercedes are unreliable, let alone intercontinental missiles. The most complicated product. Failures - a general pattern at the initial stage of development, regardless of the nationality of the developed.

    Anecdote

    Two crows are sitting and watching the launch of the American shuttle.

    First Crow: "Take Off."
    Second: "Do not take off."
    First: "Take Off"
    Second: "Well, if it takes off, it will explode."
    Countdown. The shuttle takes off and explodes.
    The first crow: "Well, I’ve gotten it!"
    The second raven: "Serving the Soviet Union!"
