"Hundreds" are inferior to the combat watch "YaRsam"

"Hundreds" are inferior to the combat watch "YaRsam"Rearmament began on the new strategic missile system of the Kozelsky Guards missile division of the Strategic Missile Forces. Instead of the used UR-100NUTTH liquid missile systems, or, as they are called in the West, SS-19 Stiletto (“Stilet”) with separable warheads of individual guidance (RGCH IN), new solid fuel propellants will soon take up combat duty in the Kaluga region 15P165-М1 rocket complexes Yars or PC-24, as they are also called in the open press. True, they usually speak of the Yars complex as a mobile ground, and here, in the Kozelsk division, the Yarsy will be located in the mines.

Old mines are now actively reworking a new complex. True, not all. At one time in the Kozelsk division there were 60 rocket mines and 60 Stilettos. Now there are only twenty. Ten mines exploded, twenty mothballed, ten remake under "Yarsy." In the remaining combat positions, where the Stillets are still on duty, officers, warrant officers and soldiers of the compound are serving.

The commander of the Kozelsk Guard Division, Colonel Valery Kasyanov, told me that the rearmament of the missile division is a difficult stage in the life of any unit. At this stage, we work together with industry cooperation. Combat construction is a very important stage, a lot of enterprises work with us. The main course of work is performed by Spetsstroy Russia. There are problems, but they are solved in a planned manner. Received all the necessary operational and technical documentation, simulators, and our officers in parallel with the construction work stubbornly master the new complex, which has much better tactical and technical characteristics than the old one. When military equipment arrives, we will proceed to its trial operation, and then to combat duty.

More detailed material, including a photo essay on the rearmament of the Kozelsk missile compound, will be published in the next NVO issues.

      And why make the mobile complex mine? Indeed, in mobility lies its small vulnerability. And the coordinates of the mines are precisely known. And it’s expensive to shove it into the mine.

      As Khan Batu said: "Kozelsk is an evil city." Centuries have passed, and it is.

    The rearmament began on a new strategic missile system of the Kozelsky Guards Missile Division of the Strategic Missile Forces.

    Congratulations to the Kozelsky Guards Missile Division on new equipment, successes, accurate launches.

    Unmount the old mines, and install new missiles.

      It is good that under Serdyukov the Kozelsky division was not disbanded! But under Yeltsin, not all mines were blown up! We must restore the combat potential of this division! For Russia to sleep peacefully !!!

    good news! Unlike all other branches of the armed forces, the Strategic Missile Forces are pleased with rearmament with enviable regularity, given the high technology and production specifics!

    All the same, it is not correct to change heavy missiles to light ones. The "stylet" has a cast weight of four and a half tons. "Yars" has about one and a half tons. That is, the UR-100N can deliver three times more heat and light to American homes. Why not wait for the adoption of a new heavy liquid-propellant missile? Moreover, the operation of "hundred parts" was extended to 30 years, and there is no particular rush to replace it.

      Well, mothballed mines can and will wait for a new generation liquid rocket!

      Because the Yarses, which will then be taken out of the mines, will be of type decommissioned already. And the fact that they ride, ride on tractors, but they can’t reach the landfill, the adversary will not need to know ...

    We hastened a bit with Stiletto: you could have had a nightmare in America for 10-20 years, and then you would have looked and something new would have pulled in. It’s good, though not all the mines were blown up, but only mothballed!

    The replacement is absolutely not equivalent in terms of casting weight, and taking into account the fact that liquid rockets at the initial launch site are noticeably more agile than solid-fuel ones, it is completely doubtful. True, the Institute of Heat Engineering will receive regular bonuses, but the potential of the Strategic Missile Forces after the replacement does not seem to increase.

      exactly the opposite, in solid fuel the initial flight section is shorter

    There is no information in the article about the elimination of 20 Stilettos! Simple arithmetic there were 60 mines, 20 of them under the "Stiletto", 10 blown up, 20 mothballed, 10 are being converted under the "Yars". Bottom line: the division has 20 "stilettos" + 10 "yars", and has the ability to reactivate and re-equip another 20 silos to bring the number of active missiles to 30 "yars" and 20 "stilettos". In fact, the combat capabilities of the division double.

    In terms of throwing weight, this is not the most important indicator. The main thing is that it will bring warmth and light to American homes and what we see: YaRS 3-6 BG, power 0,15-0,3 megatons; STYLET up to 6 BG, power up to 0,55 megatons. I think that the residents of Amer’s millionaires will not care about the thickness of the layer of melted concrete 10cm or 20cm soldier

    So far there is a new heavy rocket only on paper. And at the current pace it is not known when in kind we can contemplate.
