Military Review

The last day of "Satan"

53
The last day of "Satan"US President Barack Obama offered his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to reduce the nuclear potential of both countries by another third. And it is precisely this topic - the race of disarmament - that Vladimir MASHATIN dedicated his “photo report from the past”. A reporter from New Izvestia offers his subjective view of the “Objective history"The destruction of the most powerful and formidable weapons on Earth - the Soviet intercontinental ballistic missile "Satan". The reprisal of the nuclear "Satan" took place twenty years ago on the secret base of the disposal of heavy Surovatikha missiles.


The architectural features of Kirpichnaya Street, the main and only "Avenue" of the village of Surovatikha, have always surprised both visiting relatives of villagers and rare American guests of the village - military observers from the USA. At times, it seemed that among the swamps and forests, unknown designers created a large-scale art project at Kirpichnaya, dedicated to the Cold War era. Missile parts were guessed in rural fences and sheds, gates and stainless steel sheds. Of the remnants of nuclear weapons, the aborigines made quite peaceful elements of house cladding, television antennas and garbage bins.

The “nuclear shield” was used by locals to build spacious garages and home pools. The peasants were silent as partisans, refusing to explain why the fungi above the children's sandboxes were made from the nose of strategic missiles, and the builders mounted the fountain bowl in the village square from the intercontinental container plugs and the parts of the launch shaft. But 20 years ago, looking into Surovatikhu by a special pass and a travel certificate for the Izvestia newspaper, I knew exactly why cosmic material stronger than metal, a miracle material based on fiberglass and epoxy impregnation, served as the main building material for each compound.

At the height of the Cold War, the forest drowsiness and the impassability of the swamps of the Gorky region helped the military to create on the outskirts of the village of Surovatiha a super secret nuclear arsenal of the Soviet Union. This arsenal was intended for the storage and assembly of rocket armament and its delivery to the troops. In the second half of the 50's, the famous "seven" was assembled here - the P-7 rocket, on which Yuri Gagarin flew around the globe.

Having made rockets a hundred years in advance, the presidents of the superpowers became thoughtful and began to sign the disarmament treaties with a bang. 25 years ago entered into force the indefinite Treaty on the Elimination of Medium and Small-Range Missiles. Leaders of the USSR and the United States, Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan, pledged to destroy all launchers and ground-based missiles with a range from 500 to 5500 km. The final verdict to the Soviet intercontinental missiles RS-20 and PC-16 was announced 20 years ago by Boris Yeltsin and George Bush when they signed the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty (START-2). So in the 90-s in the territory of the Arsenal of the Strategic Missile Forces, a new secret object appeared - the base for the elimination of Surovatiha heavy missiles. Here they began to destroy the most powerful and formidable weapon on the planet - the nuclear ballistic missiles RS-20, known in the West as SS-18 "SATAN", or "Black Satan".

The G-20s were 36 meters in length and 3 meters in diameter with 211 tons each. There were no analogues to this rocket in the whole world. The largest US missile "MX" weighed "only" 88 tons.

"Satan" was equipped with a fluid engine, which allowed her to reach any point of our planet and even go into space. These weapons of mass destruction bore not only ten megaton-class separable nuclear warheads, but also false warheads that "defended" the main nuclear units.

Such "monsters" of the USSR nashtamped 308 pieces. PC-20 is still in the ranks of the Strategic Missile Forces and are waiting for their "time H" in underground mines scattered throughout Russia. Everything is simple and clear - while the PC-20 are on alert, Russia is superior in nuclear power to the United States.

There are three ways to eliminate missiles. The first is disabling launchers using the blasting method. The second is the launch of a rocket without a warhead into a given area. The third is the complete dismantling of the rocket and its subsequent destruction. On the basis of "Surovatikha" said goodbye to "Satan" by the third method of elimination. The missile was considered destroyed if it was freed from fuel, removed from the transport and launch container and cut into pieces. PC-20 came from the parts already "dry", with the fuel drained, but often in each of them it was rattling from 10 to 200 l heptyl.

Exactly 20 years ago, the foot of a photojournalist set foot on the territory of a secret arsenal for the first time. I received a special pass in Moscow for a long time, as a tourist visa, only to a non-existent state. The unprepared civilian was immediately struck by the Gulliver scale of the workshops, where the dismemberment of giant, silver-casting and pre-decapitated carcasses of rockets occurred. Exercises and training of officers to neutralize rocket fuel were held daily. Therefore, the most truthfully I managed to photograph the “evaporation” of heptyl by calculating the rocket men in chemical protection suits. Military units "steamed" with each rocket for 10 – 20 days, neutralizing the remnants of the most toxic fuel in the world.

From a single sawn “Satan”, 4 kg of pure gold and more than 100 kg of silver were mined at disposal. The open area of ​​the base for the elimination of ballistic missiles was the size of two football fields, which were filled with cylinders SS-18 and SS-17. Between them, on the special routes, the dwarf figurines of machine gunners, sentries, were moving harshly and unhurriedly. The rest of the territory was littered with the remains of monster rockets. Poured "Zone" Strugatsky, a real space dump on Earth! The stalker officers were busy snooping around her, ignoring the journalist.

Through the efforts of partners in the negotiations, “Satan” was recorded for destruction as 1. The Yankees did not stint and generously paid all the costs of cutting the PC-20. From the States, even loads of food came to the Surovatikha base. During the 15 years, millions of American years regularly underwent modernization and reconstruction of the complex for utilization of liquid ballistic missiles, which provided for a constant increase in capacity.

In this remote place of the Nizhny Novgorod region, the US military has often not been out of love for the harsh and wild nature. According to an international memorandum, American experts controlled each stage of the transformation of a formidable weapon into scrap metal.

How did the military treat this disarmament race? I remember the sign in the office of psychological unloading of the guard battalion: “Missiles that DO NOT HAVE SCALE are destroyed on the spot”.

As the early destruction of the military structure wrote, it is much more effective than the destruction of a multi-million city with a civilian population. Be it Moscow or New York. But if you choose, then let New York be in ruins.

            And this is not even the point. How many of those 30 million would vote against bringing their Minutemen and Tridents to US heads? Among the millions of pacifists, something is not dense. Or are our heads less valuable to the democratic public?

      Contraction. Russia and the States understand differently.
      In Russia, once reduced, it means to destroy. Guillotine, gas cutting, excavator, sledgehammer.
      USA. Reduced, then mothballed Ships, aircraft, military equipment and weapons.
      From each such contraction, the smart becomes stronger, how much the opponent becomes weaker.

      Just by 1991, an advance project of the fifth generation R-36M3 Ikar missile system (chief designer Stanislav Us) capable of carrying 14 to 19 warheads was developed at Yuzhmash, but the START-1 Gorbachev treaty and then the collapse of the USSR led to the cessation of work on this topic. As a result, in terms of creating heavy rechargeable ICBM 5th generation to replace the "Voivode" (R-36M2 4th generation), we were discarded for almost a quarter of a century. Only now work is underway to create it on the basis of the Makeev Center in Miass.

    Utilization of spent weapons is one thing. A completely different destruction of the combat ready ...
    I remember the Gorbachev fumes when rockets were cut. Then it seemed that everything - the confrontation was over, peace-friendship-festival and there was no longer any need for nuclear missile arsenals. But no, it wasn’t there! .. Time put everything in its place ...
    So, let Obama say something that flies into his head (or his advisers). This is entirely his personal sexual difficulties ...
    And in our bins forever there should be a certain stock of nuclear weapons. And we need to sneeze and blow our nose (I apologize for this particular speech turn to the most impressionable) for every pacifism (especially coming from the West), because one absolutely wise truth that has been tested by time and history repeatedly want peace, get ready for war.

    Saw and all that. They have fulfilled their time to store something. And it's expensive. The most important thing is to block the mine from unauthorized access. Although looters do not want to live in them, they want to live.

    This is for them she is “Satan” for us she is “Voivode” We do not live in NATO block.
    The voivode is a military leader, often as a ruler, combining administrative and military functions - You can say what they called it and is.

    In the taiga and tundra of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, there are a lot of 1-2 rocket stages. The bulk of the Uzhur division. Almost all of the spent blocks were found from the air and destroyed by blasting in place. Something went to the hunters in whose areas these blocks fell. Residues of fuel (UDMH) and others slightly yellowed green. However, especially no one complained. So it was necessary. But you should not dream about military launches. This is the main trump card of the army. And after his military display, stone axes and bows with arrows with silicon tips will be used.

    US President Barack Obama invited his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to reduce the nuclear potential of both countries by another third.

    Amer’s cunning at their rockets in the mines, the service life is already ending, <Voevoda> can still serve, now for peaceful purposes it has successfully launched satellites into orbit. You can’t cut.

    What a pity such a rocket for scrap.
    It is not a fact that the new rocket will turn out no worse than Satan.
    It’s just that before everything was done honestly and now for the loot, it’s not a fact that everything will be done wisely.

    Of course, nuclear weapons have been stamped out. And not only the USSR and America. But the RS-20 is a unique weapon; it holds in fear of retaliation all ambitious political players. You can’t destroy them, these missiles. Today, Americans sponsor the destruction of missiles, and tomorrow?

    It is not for nothing that the Soviet Voevoda ICBM received the name "Satan" from the West. It played its main role - it provided the USSR, and then Russia, the possibility of a peaceful life. Time goes by, the elemental base is aging. And the more significant the nuclear charge and its delivery vehicle, the more stringent are the requirements for their life cycle. This is all clear. The question is why these carriers were so hastily destroyed? Why it was impossible to use them for commercial launches of space objects, to return part of the funds for the creation of new spacecraft. For the sake of whom, so ruthlessly destroyed the national treasure? The question is rhetorical ...

    US President Barack Obama proposed to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin
    reduce the nuclear potential of both countries another third.

    In light of the fact that we have been led by the Ministry of Defense for five years, the company:
    Serdyukov & Amazon Ltd.,
    The United States is simply obligated to implement their disarmament program.
    unilaterally.

    And what is the article about? What a village. The destruction of Satan. Well, a thousand times here it has already been written and discussed. But this is generally a masterpiece:
    "Satan" was equipped with a liquid engine, which allowed her to fly to anywhere in the world and even go out into space.

    These are Americans and NATO are true Satan.

    Democracy is when the USE is good, everything else, therefore, is not democracy.
    On cut paper with the U.S. logo, you can currently buy 50 times Earth with those who live on it. Just because we don’t see this money does not mean that there is none. They safely lie and are used as necessary by our "elite".

    As far as I heard, the answer to Obama’s proposal was a mild one. As long as you have a missile defense system, we have a Voivode. And you will develop missile defense, we will restore medium-range missiles in the service. hi

      It’s impossible to destroy it unequivocally ... they will build new ones, it is not known whether they will be better, or not worse, they should be more than anyone else. Previously, everything was done honestly, and now to get more kickbacks. And raw materials and materials are used in the entire production the cheapest. (The principle of the federal law No. 94-FZ is to buy the lowest-quality for the lowest possible cost, in order to make the difference and put it in your pocket)
