About the USSR nuclear shield

22
I want to tell you comrades one history about the good old USSR. The story of how the nuclear shield was secured and how our valiant fathers carried their difficult watch. The story is real, told by my Batee officer of the Strategic Missile Forces, who fully devoted himself to serving the Motherland. Deserved disability and retirement. And they gave the apartment what it is, that is.


So the events developed at the beginning of 80-x in the city of Aleisk, Altai Territory. A strategic missile division served in this wonderful place. At the time, it was equipped with quite good P-36M mine-based missile complexes. The Pindos disliked our complex and called it “SS-18 Mod.2 Satan. And this "Satan" was placed in the silo launcher of enhanced security, they say even a direct nuclear hit must withstand.

The division as it should be on schedule got up on combat duty. What it looked like: all the personnel involved in the duty went down into an autonomous bunker under the ground (I do not know how many meters I will not lie) and it was closed, do not get out, do not enter, whatever would happen. Complex management systems were located in the bunker. And so in the confined space the officers alternately sat at the consoles for three days, then the duty was transferred to another complex, the bunker was opened and all were released into the light of day.

Electromagnetic fields there have been those yet. Not a single clock worked (there was no electronic clock then, and the mechanical ones magnetized so that they lied godlessly). Bate's mother-in-law gave gold, 500p for those days, crazy money, so they did not lie. But it's not about that.

And on such a combat duty, when space maps are loaded into tablets, and real targets are loaded into warheads with Washington, Bonnam and Parisim. The power is such that this division alone is capable of launching 3-th world and winning it within 14 minutes (flight time) Automation is triggered and all the complexes go into pre-launch mode to strike back. Shoot cover mines. It is in the movies that the Pindos drive and open slowly so that Bruce Willis can save the world, while from the Russians they shoot out the squadrons, the cover the size of a football field that can contain a direct nuclear hit drops 500 meters in a second. The hydraulics comes into working mode, all systems holding the rocket depart and it is ready to launch, slowly rocking on the shock absorbers, waiting for the last command to bring death, fear and horror along the ballistic trajectory to the neighboring continent. But there is no last command. In order for a launch to occur, there must be two confirmations: from the duty officer and from the MO headquarters from the “nuclear suitcase”, if there is a connection with the suitcase, of course, if not then only the commander decides to strike. The connection was! Start canceled.

And then it began! Called from Moscow and asked you ohoy? Not so .. they asked, “HAS YOU TACKED IN YOUR FUCKING SIBERIA AT ALL THERE?” DO YOU THINK THERE ARE NEXT MORE?
They created a commission, called designers, flew the KGB, arrested the entire commanding staff of the unit. In short shukher, sho fucked up. The reason for the operation of automatic nekhera can not understand.

But there was one old ensign Jew, who was not lazy and went to Novosibirsk and took a little spravochku, from seismologists, that it was at this time that there was a small earthquake, 0,5 score, which no one noticed. And as it turned out, the automatics took the vibrations of the soil for a nuclear strike and worked in the normal mode, which the creators of the system were admitted. All were released, drafted and continued to serve. And the Pindos never found out that their lives depended on the fluctuations of the soil in some shameful town-village in Siberia and on the restraint and nerves of the duty officer.

    There was a good division near Aleisk. As BVVAUL cadets, they practiced training dive attacks on these "caps" of the mines. It was a wonderful time !!!

    Thanks to the author !! good hi And without a mate in the army really nowhere. At first, if I tried to cadets to "intelligently", in a civil way, explain or ask them to do something using the expressions: you, "please", "be kind" or "I hope for you", then they instantly NNA sent me mentally ... and I couldn't get anything from them. But after the senior comrades from the officer corps had worked with me on this topic, things got better for me. yes And the hidden talent has found realization ... repeat

    But alas, only the bike, and the bike is bad, without positive. Truth is well, about 10 percent. And the watch system is just so terrible, the covers fly so far, and the systems work out so much on their own, and the ensign is so smart, and the flight time we and the Americans are dreaming of. Those. all of rocket horror stories. If the key is not sitting, it is better not to drive the blizzard. like an old rocket player put this bike minus. You can lie, but not as much, if only for a girl under the covers. And there are other ways to unleash the Last World.
    So neither missile weapons nor the people who carry the database need to be blamed.

    I fully support andr327. This note is exactly a bike in accordance with the title of the section))) In the course of the entire reading process, what is called "ears cut" from absurdities, and at every step ... And since he himself was on duty at the vigorous button for 5 years on this particular complex, only in another missile division, I can say with confidence. And it was rightly said - if you yourself do not know, did not see, did not touch with your hands, it is better to refrain from false stories ...

    Duty is carried out by a crew of 2 people at the regiment command post at a depth of about 30 meters in a mine similar to the launcher, but with different equipment, the regiment’s command post in the form of a container corresponding to the size of the missile TPK is divided into 11 compartments (counting "floors" from top to bottom) in the 10th compartment. Security changes and other providing shifts and calculations carry a watch on the surface. The KP, similar to that described, is, apparently, the old KP (but they are not used on this complex - they remained from the old versions of the complexes, and not the Voevodovskys), they are in a half-abandoned state and are used only in exercises as a military training complex (equipment, in addition to telephone and ZAS, it was dismantled there), these structures are designed to accommodate the entire personnel of the entire shift shift on duty, and the structure is not at depth, but only buried and bunded. The protective device (cover) of the mine is not from a football field but only (I do not remember exactly, but from the old memory and visual perception) about 5 * 5 meters. When opened, the charger does not shoot back, but opens with a hydraulic system in a few seconds. After the end of the database, the duty is not transferred to another complex, but another duty shift just steps in. The flight time is also not 14 minutes (such time is about 15-20 minutes when launched from submarines located off the coast for purposes not deep in the territory of the country), but when launched from continent to continent (it is assumed from Eurasia - to North America) about 40-50 minutes. The rocket on the shock absorbers does not swing and no special systems located in the mine hold it - it is in the TPK (transport and launch container), but it is suspended on shock absorbers, but the TPK does not swing))) for oil shock absorbers (vertical and horizontal ), the smallest of them, in diameter - you can’t grab it))) Two commands come to the launch, but the other ones, namely: START and Cipher, the cipher starts directly, and, in accordance with the cipher, the flight is loaded into the warhead task and goals (all this happens during the prelaunch process) and after 56 seconds the rocket leaves the mine (unmodified P36 complex - 60 seconds). The missile starts from the TPK using the mortar launch method and the pan with the spent powder charge is shot off - this is another inaccuracy about the flying cover, the pan can really fly far enough, but 500 meters is unlikely. By the way, a direct hit by a nuclear warhead cannot withstand the memory, and it’s not the point - the mine will simply be destroyed / damaged, but it must be admitted that a hit at a distance of about 200-300 meters is a complex, depending on the charge power, the launcher can also withstand it will be capable of launching (here there are difficulties with communication channels because the combat control cables will be broken, and the combat radio control signal will not pass under conditions of radioactivity, especially in the epicenter and near it, but this is a separate story).

    He wrote it ... It seems that he didn’t give out any special secrets, but still ... But the doors, just in case, barricaded ...

    PS Uncles, I won’t be like that anymore ...

        He said that he had been on duty for only 5 years, most likely they were trampled down from the army, not even after years of service.

      The author does not pretend to be a specialist rocket launcher, but he explained that from the words. And then this is a bike, not a mournful instruction, many people read it with pleasure, including myself, but I doubt your tedious passage. a question for you, were there special officers in your division? If it was shitty, you can feel it in your commentary that you use your tongue like a broomstick, and the secretaries worked poorly with you in VU.

    Well, what are you up against the author? Well, I slightly lied on the dimensions of the lid. And about pirapatrons it is true, this is in case of hydraulic failure. Well, with the launch, there the task should be in a special recorder. A connection with the mine will be in the event of a cable break. And there were rockets that stood on shock absorbers, and not just in TPKs. In general, from the first of April! drinks

    Slowly rockets float away
    Meet them, Mr. Reagan, wait.
    And although America is a little sorry
    the Japs have it ahead.
    Maybe we offended someone in vain,
    slapping a couple of extra megatons,
    see how fun the earth is boiling
    where the Pentagon used to be ...

    A nuclear fungus is standing, swinging,
    resting right in the sky ...
    The tanks of Germany, like candles, are melting,
    to hell they let the factory ...
