    The first time was in Cap Yar in the late 60s, back in the "reign" on it gene. Colonel Voznyuk, Last time in the late 80s. Well, countless times between the first and second. The most "bastard" was in the winter in the open steppe with strong winds and minus 30. For the first time, I was filled with pride for the greatness and scope of work carried out at the test site. And the order at the test sites was excellent. In the late 80s he was horrified by the devastation and desolation. I would like to believe that everything will return to its place, because ... without such training grounds, competent specialists serving on them, and human conditions for their life and work, the hope for re-equipping the Russian Armed Forces with modern weapons is nothing more than an illusion.

        Yes, the steppe in tulips in May was "oil painting". As well as jellied sturgeon in canteens on the 10th site or the same sturgeon in live form while fishing. Yes, people potikha potikha, but which of us is not a sinner? All.
        So we drink standing up and down to the bottom for our grave sins, so that the beluga sturgeon and other fish can be caught further in the waters adjacent to Cap Yar, and "all sorts of shalezaks" took off from Cap Yar itself, and took off in strict accordance with the schedules of such flights and fell where they were supposed to fall, and not in milk. drinks

    The Cap Yar test site was created as a testing center for rocket technology. Almost all launches of Russia's significant tactical and strategic fist were tested and tested here.
    There were also failures, the delivery by the traitor Penkovsky of the advanced know-how of space and rocket technology at that time. They were treacherous, with tears in their eyes of the destruction of rockets of promising design thought by decree of the weak Gorbi and the blue EBN. Now Cap Yar is gaining a new life and practical embodiment of the future of rocket technology. The date of 67 years of foundation of the leading Russian training ground shows that following the Victory over Fascism, literally a year later the first project of a new development of Russia's arms was created.
    Space Rocket Troops, troops of the future.

    At Cap.Yar.ya, I was the head of the KShM with our District tactical rockets, they took a test-shooting at the USSR every 5 years. They bring lunch, I connect with the rockets and ask for no signal (for launch), I can have lunch, I can, I can answer good rocket launchers. And they just poured borsch (thank God I changed the borsch for a cutlet) and they rocked a couple of rockets. KShM-ka got me like a 6-point in a storm for a minute, and it’s like we flew out of a TU-154 airplane in flight for seconds 20. There is no need to tell who the borscht turned out to be. And I understood that rockets can be trusted Motherland, but no borshch. Well, of course, my car is one of the alternate ways to receive a start-up signal, and talking to me they were already finishing signal processing. I am proud of one we inflicted a conditionally nuclear, and on the adversaries we burnt our trousers conditionally. soldier

    Here about this rocket in a picture, read in one technical magazine.
    When the Americans saw her, they did not believe that she could take off! I had to do an indicative start for them.
    I would like to add that this is one of the most accurate missiles produced in the USSR !!!
