7

On Monday, India conducted successful tests of a ballistic missile Agni-3 capable of carrying a nuclear charge, foreign media reported.


The launch of the rocket took place from a mobile platform on Wheeler Island in the Bay of Bengal off the coast of Orissa. The last time the Agni-3 rocket was tested there in September, ITAR-TASS reports with reference to the Press Trust of India.

The Agni ballistic missiles were developed as part of the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program of the Ministry of Defense of India.

"Agni-1" is a 12-meter rocket, which can be launched from mobile launchers and capable of carrying a nuclear warhead weighing up to a ton.

The Agni-2 is a two-stage solid-fuel rocket with a length of about 19 m. Its maximum range is up to 2500 km with a mass of detachable warhead to 1 thousand kg.

Agni-3 is a two-stage rocket with a length of 16,7 m and a weight of 48,3 tons. It can deliver warheads weighing 1,5 tons to a range of more than 3 thousand. Km.

The first tests of the Agni-4 took place in December of the 2010 year, however, due to failures in the control system, they ended in failure. In November 2011, the first successful launch of the rocket was made. After 20 minutes after launch, the head of the rocket reached a predetermined area in the Bay of Bengal. The length of the Agni-4 is 20 m, the mass is 17 tons. The mass of the head reaches 1000 kg.

In April, 2012 for the first time, India experienced the new intercontinental ballistic missile Agni-5. The launch took place at a maximum range exceeding 5 thousand. Km. Agni-5 is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead weighing up to one ton. Its mass is 50 tons, length - 17,5 m, diameter - 2 m.

    With the help of Russia, India is bringing its armed forces to the modern level. And this is a good counterbalance to China and Pakistan.

      I hope Ours was not sold or presented to the Indians, otherwise there is much to be expected from Rogozin.

    The medium-range missile will soon and PAKISTAN will demonstrate something similar (it is time for RUSSIA to abandon the agreement on medium- and short-range missiles - any meaning is lost in it with such neighbors)

      It seems that ours decided to act more cunningly. And not to withdraw from the treaty, and actually create medium-range missiles. Will explain. In 2015, the Strategic Missile Forces are to receive a new intercontinental ballistic missile, which is still under the name "Rubezh" (RS-26). It will be intercontinental only formally, because it will not reach the US territory, but slightly exceeds the range of 5500 km (the maximum range of the RSD under the agreement) and formally is an ICBM with a range of about 6000 km (there was already a launch of the Rubezh from Plesetsk at the Kura test site on Kamchatka, which is about 5600 km). At the Parade in honor of the independence of the Republic of Belarus on July 3 this year, the MZKT chassis was demonstrated, presumably the chassis for the new Rubezh complex. An indirect confirmation that the chassis is intended for the installation of a medium (or slightly more than medium) range missile is that it has the same 6 axles as the complex with the Pioneer RSD destroyed under the 87 treaty, and the weight of the launcher (PU) "Rubezh" according to the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces will be up to 80 tons. Let me remind you that the weight of the launcher of the Soviet "Pioneer" was also a little over 80 tons. Russia, without violating the treaty, receives a missile in its arsenal, which is included in the START-3 limits, but its direct purpose is to deter other nuclear powers on the continent, as well as to destroy, if necessary, American bases on the continent and missile defense systems.

      What difference does it make if it is painted, if only it flies, and in flight color does not affect speed and range.

        here at this moment you are not quite right. sometimes they save, and then whole layers of paint rudders block. I remember that we too are Indians, why will we use your paint, do we have our own cadas? we sent them together in a chorus in a certain direction, the designer knowingly laid this one!

    And we have some good news.

    MOSCOW, December 24 - RIA Novosti. The Strategic Missile Forces (Strategic Missile Forces) tested the RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missile at the Plesetsk cosmodrome, Colonel Igor Yegorov, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry's press service and information on the Strategic Missile Forces, told reporters on Tuesday.


    "Today, December 24, 2013, at 11:00 Moscow time, a combat crew of the Strategic Missile Forces from the Plesetsk State Test Cosmodrome conducted a test launch of a solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile RS-24 Yars, a stationary silo-based missile, equipped with a multiple warhead ", - said Egorov.

    The rocket was developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Engineering on the basis of the RS-12M2 Topol-M. The rocket is created using scientific, technical and technological solutions implemented in the Topol-M missile system, which significantly reduces the time and cost of its creation. The first test launch of the RS-24 took place on May 29, 2007 from the Plesetsk test site, the second on December 25, 2007 (from a mobile launcher, at a distance of 5,5 thousand km, it hit targets at the Kura test site, Kamchatka Peninsula). On November 26, 2008, the third test launch of the RS-24 was made at the Plesetsk test site. The main characteristics of the RS-24 (flight range, number, power, and circular deviation of warheads, characteristics of enemy missile defense penetration means, acceleration time, etc.) are classified.

    It is not very good that the number of countries with such technologies is growing.
