Russia has successfully tested a new intercontinental missileThe Defense Ministry on Thursday conducted a successful test of a prototype of a new intercontinental ballistic missile from the Kapustin Yar test site, said a spokesman for the department of the press service and information of the Ministry of Strategic Missile Forces (Strategic Missile Forces).
“On June 6, 2013, Moscow time, in 21.45, combat crews of the Strategic Missile Forces from the state central interspecific Kapustin Yar test site in the Astrakhan region successfully tested a prototype of a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from a mobile launcher,” the message reads. , reports RIANews».
The launch was recognized successful, the combat equipment arrived at the Balkhash training ground at the scheduled time, the spokesman concluded.

        From Kapustinoy Yar to Balkhash! Perhaps we are also talking about a new opportunity for ballistic missiles to fly over short distances, bypassing the INF Treaty.

          There is nothing new here. Iskander and 300 km flies along a ballistic trajectory. The distance depends on the volume of fuel and the mass of the warhead.

              So what? If the operating time of the engine of an intercontinental missile is limited, then you can shoot it even on the next street. Where is the "new opportunity" here? No further. Although I probably understood what you wanted to say.

      Yars already replaces Poplar-M with might and main, it is not necessary to speak about Poplar at all. Most likely, this new rocket will have to replace Yars in the future. God grant!

        this is unlikely to be a new rocket. most likely a modernized Yars. subjectively of course.
        It takes decades to develop ICBMs; we couldn’t finish the mace so quickly and collect something new. Upgrade and no more than for me, which is also necessary and important.

          Quite right, the complex is being developed by MIT and this is the fourth test launch in a row. The first launch in Plesetsk in September 2011 was an emergency (the first stage fell 10 km from the launch site). Subsequent launches were successful (one from the Plesetsk cosmodrome and two from Kap-Yar). The features of this solid-propellant missile are classified, the only thing that can be said is that it is capable of flying along a quasi-ballistic trajectory (more precisely, warheads), like the sea Mace. and also improved the system for overcoming enemy missile defense. In fact, it is a ground analogue of Bulava, only with new combat equipment. Both missiles have a mass of about 36 tons, a length of 12 meters and the same number of stages (three stages for the R-30). The new missile also received solid fuel, similar to that used on the Bulava, and a warhead capable of carrying up to ten warheads.

              Well, here the question is not entirely correct as for me. the point is how many warheads are equipped with ICBMs in relation to various traps. Of course, the increased charge is inversely proportional to the flight range. and again, it seems to me that when a missile is launched, parameters are entered into the missile defense account. Those. how the rocket will behave in terms of countering missile defense. If you launch a missile where the probability of interception is small, then the trajectory will be more ballistic, and if you take into account the strong opposition from the missile defense, then the maneuvering areas will be longer and the charge throwing range will be less. but it seems that the performance range of the R-30 in the region of 8000 - 9500 km. again, it all depends on the warhead. The main thing is that we cover the entire territory of the United States, except for a piece of California. Apparently the iron Arnie did not just come to us, they sawed the range under him))). A joke by itself!

                I mean, can, for example, Poplar work out on 500 km? I consider it theoretically and practically possible in principle, expensive, wasteful, but I don’t really know how things really are and whether such functions are incorporated in the rocket / s.
                Probably a military secret. wink

                  ahh, well, I don’t know about that either. theoretically I think this is possible, but again, the rocket is likely to enter orbit, and from there it will already lie on the trajectory to the target. even if it is 500 km away. In fact, the ICBM will overcome not 500, but 800 km.

              For ICBMs, there is no question of any minimum flight range, not for that it is needed. We are talking about reducing the time of the active (accelerating) section of the flight path and reducing the total time of approach to the target by using the so-called flat trajectory rocket flight.
              With a steady rocket trajectory, it reaches the target in minimal time and rises to a small height, which makes it difficult to detect. This has become possible recently due to primarily qualitatively new fuel (the trajectory at a given range is much more energy-intensive) and the weight of warheads is reduced without reducing the power of charges . Previously, ICBMs used trajectories associated with access to outer space and then a decrease in the target area for approaching the target. Because of the need to climb and fly at high altitude, missiles can be detected and intercepted. The ballistic trajectory is easy to calculate, and the flight time is quite long. Now, with the development of new technologies, ICBMs can fly without going beyond the atmosphere, the same Topol-M and Yars are capable of this.
              What is called flat path?
              The elevation angle at which the full horizontal range of the bullet (grenade) becomes the greatest is called the angle of greatest range. The largest-angle angle for bullets of various types of weapons is about 35 °. The trajectories obtained at elevation angles smaller than the angle of greatest distance are called layered.

              It is with this feature that tests from the Kapustin-Yar test site with final delivery to Sary-Shagan are associated.

                Do not tell me, well, then another counter question, suddenly it will be necessary to quickly work out at a range of 1000-2000 km winked , the question "How" to do this?
                I believe that, nevertheless, there should be such a possibility of controlling a missile at which it is possible to achieve a range of 1000 km, maybe less, even with incomplete burnout of the fuel or earlier separation of steps, along a steeply ballistic or low-trajectory path.

                  Do not forget that Russia has, in addition to strategic nuclear weapons, tactical nuclear weapons that are not controlled by any bilateral agreements with the Americans. According to some data, which Esin once voiced, we have about 2000 units of these weapons. In time of war, nuclear weapons are deployed as part of general forces. Yesin also expressed a rather interesting phrase that, since for Russia TNW is for the most part a means of regional deterrence, it will be possible apply in case of urgent need without catastrophic consequences.
                  That is, the ideology is such that during the maturing of a regional military conflict, the transition from preparing aggression to unleashing it will most likely occur gradually, by increasing (escalating). Consequently, in the case of a regional conflict, the implementation of nuclear deterrence through delivering an immediate massive retaliation strike is unlikely to be acceptable, including in view of the disastrous consequences.And here comes the factor of the use of nuclear weapons or its demonstration (threat of use for the aggressor), which will not lead to disastrous consequences on a global scale.
                  Non-strategic nuclear forces - a component of nuclear weapons, equipped with non-strategic (operational-tactical and tactical) nuclear weapons and designed to fulfill the tasks of regional deterrence in peacetime and operational-strategic, operational, operational-tactical and tactical missile defense tasks in wartime. In some cases, non-strategic nuclear forces can fulfill strategic missile defense tasks. Non-strategic nuclear forces may include formations and units: the Air Force — aviation (heavy bomber, long-range bombers, bomber, assault, fighter) and anti-aircraft missile; Navy - surface ships, multipurpose submarines, naval aviation (assault and anti-submarine), coastal missile; Space Forces (KB) - anti-missile; Missile troops and artillery (RV and A) - missile and artillery. Units and units of the NSNF are part of the general forces. Non-strategic nuclear forces carry out combat missions by decision of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the RF Armed Forces or (with his sanction) by decisions of the commanders of associations (except for the air force and air defense associations), subordinate to which are the corresponding formations and units of non-strategic nuclear forces.


                  But on the ICBM of the Strategic Missile Forces, just google where the missile divisions are based and find out whether they need to shoot at a range of 1000-2000km, say from Teykovo or Tatishchevo and where?
                  Of course, many are worried about the issue of infantry fighting systems reduced by agreement with the Americans, but this raises the question of their vulnerability precisely to the ATT for the American missile defense, since they will have to be placed close to the borders.

                  maybe I'm wrong, but there was or is an agreement on medium-range ICBMs, i.e. in fact, they were eliminated from us. And they would ideally fit the distance described by you.
                  But on the other hand, Comrade ASKET is also right.
                  TNW or its demonstration, say on the link of the strategic bombers Tu-95 or Tu-160, are also excellent. Cruise missiles (like x-55, 555, I’m mistaken) that are capable of carrying nuclear warheads hang quietly. There is no talk of Megatons on its own, but a dozen kilotons will completely pacify a regional player like Turkey or Israel. The launch range seems to be about 5000 km.

      Here is another continuation. It is good that there is movement in this direction. There is life in the old dog yet.
      The US missile defense system will not be able to keep a new domestic intercontinental ballistic missile from being hit by the target, the tests of which were successfully completed the day before, said Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on Friday.

      “We carefully monitored how the events of yesterday evening will take place (tests of the new ICBM). They were successful, we tested an intercontinental ballistic missile, which I call the "PRO killer," Rogozin said at a lecture in the framework of the Citizens University project, RIA Novosti reports.


      “Neither modern, nor promising American missile defense systems will be able to keep this missile from falling into the bull's-eye,” said the Deputy Prime Minister.

      He stressed that Russia will continue to build up power, "which will allow us to ensure absolute freedom of action for ourselves in cases if our country is subjected to aggression."

      “The Russian Federation, when forming the state armament program, will lay down such parameters for armaments and military equipment that will only be associated with repelling the threat of the sixth generation of wars (using high-precision weapons),” Rogozin noted.

      He added that Russia will develop appropriate systems and methods of aerospace defense, which will prevent any missile defense systems and help maintain balance in the world.

      Recall, on the eve of Russia, it successfully tested a new intercontinental missile.

      “On June 6 of 2013 in Moscow time, by combat calculation of the Strategic Missile Forces from the state central interspecific training ground“ Kapustin Yar ”in the Astrakhan region, a successful test launch of a prototype of a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from a mobile launcher was carried out,” the message said military department.

    There are YaRs to replace poplar.
    Judging by the launch from a mobile installation, it is quite possible to upgrade YaRS. YRS-M, if not mistaken.

    Previously:

    Russia will receive the Yars-M ballistic missile by the end of the year.



    MOSCOW, April 4 - RIA Novosti. The Russian army will receive the first modernized Yars-M ballistic missile by the end of this year, a source in the military-industrial complex told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

    Currently, the Strategic Missile Forces are armed with the fifth generation complexes (Yars and Topol-M). According to the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakaev, in 2013 it is planned to re-equip missile regiments in three divisions with new complexes in addition to the two (Teikovskaya and Tatishchevskaya) already rearmed.

    "Until 2013, we will deliver the ballistic Yars-M to the RF Ministry of Defense, its adoption is planned for the same year," the source said.

    In turn, the ex-chief of the main headquarters of the Strategic Missile Forces, retired Colonel-General Viktor Yesin, stressed in an interview with RIA Novosti that Yars-M, in comparison with its predecessor, will have a more perfect combat control system. Yesin declined to comment further, citing the confidentiality of information.

    PC-24 Yars (SS-X-29 according to NATO classification) is a Russian mobile-based solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile with a multiple warhead, developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Engineering under the leadership of Academician Yuri Solomonov. It is a modernization of the Topol-M missile system. In the future, it should replace the PC-18 and RS-20 ICBMs and form, together with Topol-M, the basis of the Strategic Missile Forces strike group.

    According to data from open sources, modern "Yars" have a three-stage design, the total length is about 43 meters, the maximum flight range is 11 thousand kilometers. It was adopted by the Russian army in 2009.

        sooooo hard to believe. "voivode" that was not in the mobile version. there were mine and nuclear submarines. besides "voivode" up to 40m. did not reach. It can't be 43 meters. An increase in the length of the rocket may be associated with an increase in the stages, because an increased resource is already needed, tk. during the flight, the ICBM actively changes its trajectory to overcome the potentially missile defense. but 43 meters ??? let's see ...

    Russia will test in June the "bottom" ballistic missile
    21 May 2013 17: 12
    In the summer of 2013, factory tests of the new Skif ballistic missile will begin in the White Sea, which is able to standby on the sea or ocean bottom and, on command, hit ground and sea targets.

    According to the Izvestia newspaper, citing a source in the Russian Ministry of Defense, the missile developed by the Rubin central design bureau and Makeev’s Miass State Rocket Center is planned to be tested before the end of June this year.

    According to the schedule, a “test” diesel-electric submarine B-90 “Sarov” will be installed at the bottom of the White Sea for testing. In order for the ship to be able to mount a rocket, it was modified: a torpedo tube about a meter in diameter and additional ballast tanks were installed in the bow, which should maintain the stability and position of the submarine under water after the rocket was dropped.

    During the tests, the missile itself will be tested, as well as the system for loading it into the sea from a surface ship to a submarine.

    If the factory tests in the White Sea are completed successfully, the Skif will be transferred to state tests, as a result of which the missile can go into service with the Russian Navy.

    The rocket from the mobile installation was launched, so it’s a modification. But the question is modified. The control systems, it’s understandable. The little one was changed to fiber, the digital upgrades were advanced. This has been expected since semiconductor lasers learned how to rivet.

    Apparently, this is a further improvement of the Yars complex. Yu. Solomonov in his interview said that by 2016 new complexes will arrive instead of Yars. The changes should mainly concern combat equipment. It is also likely that in the new complex, instead of the tractor from MZKT, a new one will be used - KAMAZ, in which a number of new solutions will be used that increase stealth and operational characteristics.

    Most likely, Topol will replace the new complexes, which are now being replaced by
    Yars. But nobody is going to change Topol-M, because it is designed to destroy highly protected targets due to the significantly more powerful monoblock warhead.

        Well, these "bells and whistles" in terms of exploitation. Har-k are associated with an increase in the depth of the ford to be overcome from 1,1 m to 1,5 m. Now each of the 16 wheels has its own electric motor. That is, the engine of the car runs on a generator, which transfers energy to wheel electric motors, power and permeability increase. If even two-thirds of the wheels fail, then the car will remain mobile. Another plus is the absence of a cardan shaft, on which the mobility of the machine depends very much.

        As for stealth, I don’t know the details here. Perhaps some new coatings, materials, etc.

        Quote: Papakiko
        Or is it a hint of using related GBU-28 (BLU-113) systems with NFC?

        No, it simply means that, for example, on Yars, warheads are 150-300 kt each, and at Topol-M there is a monoblock of 0,55-1 Mt. So, if the task is to defeat a deeply buried and highly protected target (command posts, some bunkers, etc.), it is impossible to accomplish it using Yars, and Topol-M will just come at the expense of significantly greater power. Therefore, monoblock Topoli-M continued to be put into service until the end of 2012, despite the appearance of multi-headed Yars.

      Yes, now Russia, like almost all the territories of the former USSR, is in hidden occupation. But in order to successfully break free from it, it is necessary, in particular, to strengthen the country's defense capability. Because just like that, the West will not refuse a tidbit in the form of Russia. And liberation from occupation will lead to a sharp increase in the well-being of the people. What we wish you. And in general, without a single shot, the states are captured when the leadership betrays its people, and when not many in the country understand what is really happening. This is exactly what happened with the USSR. Therefore, as Putin correctly says, one must constantly be strong. And in terms of
      military, and, most importantly, in my opinion, in terms of minds.

    By the end of 2013, Russia will put on combat alert a new strategic missile complex, Rubezh, and the deployment of the first regiment armed with such complexes will begin in 2014. This, as reported by RIA Novosti, said the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia, Colonel-General Vladimir Zarudnitsky. According to him, the successful, fourth in a row, test of the complex took place on the evening of June 6, 2013.

    “The results of the launch are assessed as successful, all units have reached the goal. To complete the tests, another launch is required, scheduled for the current year. After that, the Rubezh missile system will be adopted by the strategic missile forces. The deployment of the first missile regiment is expected to begin in 2014, "Zarudnitskiy said, noting that the preparation of all the necessary infrastructure and personnel, as well as" coordination of combat crews "is underway.

    The test of the new rocket took place at the Kapustin Yar training ground in the Astrakhan region. The launch was made at 21:45 Moscow time. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, missile warheads arrived at the Balkhash training ground in Kazakhstan at the scheduled time. According to Zarudnitsky, during the tests, "new military equipment" was tested. Zarudnitsky did not provide any details about the Rubezh. According to him, the strategic missile system will be distinguished by increased accuracy, wider “capabilities and improved maneuverability”.

    Earlier, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that the prototype of a promising intercontinental ballistic missile tested on June 6 is a “killer of missile defense” because it is capable of breaking through all existing and promising missile defense systems.
