      It hooked more: The purpose of the launch was to test the promising military equipment of intercontinental ballistic missiles ... There used to be one that scared the hell out of the whole world, but what now ???

          There is always something to improve, but since the already tested, long-established model was launched, this is most likely an attempt to gloss over the eyes of the failure with Proton.

    Perhaps a new guidance system?

      Anything - missile defense penetration systems, guidance systems, a modernized warhead ... They are constantly being modified and improved. "Topol" is now considered an outdated system in our country, "Topol-M", and now "Yars" have come to replace them long ago, it is quite possible that through modernization they are being brought up to the level of new products, so as not to change so immediately. And perhaps some elements of the equipment of the same "Yars" are being run in without spending new missiles.

      Yes, somewhere there was an article that Amer missiles have long been turned into dust. So one appearance. Like their gold reserves in Ford Knox - gold plated tungsten.

    Well at least "Topol" does not let us down, not like "Proton" crying

      Well, at least Topol does not let us down, let alone Proton

      When I read about the launch, the same idea was born - why did Poplars fly and Protons dig earth with their nose?
      And the conclusion is that something in the conservatory is not okay.
      When they blame the specialists for defects, I already have a doubt, and why only at the launch of the most valuable and important devices - the defects are immediately detected?
      And the conclusion suggests itself.
      Poplars are harvested in workshops covered by state security.
      And the Protons, apparently, are collected by separate bad boys by malicious intent, or so for harmless courage. Sitting and puffing - because of me the Proton will fuck ...
      Well, something like this. In any case, the excuse with specialists (like - they are bad) does not fit with successful Topol launches.

        last year, when they investigated the fall of the next "Proton" they say it seems like there was a failure due to the presence of low-quality Chinese microcircuits in electronics .... but there should be domestic ones .. in short, someone laundered the loot

        It’s much more interesting ... telemetry data ... how the engines behave, how the measures to counteract the enemy’s air defense systems took place, how the missile targeting systems work, and what is written in the article is a report about a successful missile launch.

      Well, as it were, no, not empty. We are replacing poplars with poplars-M and Yars. And what to do with retiring 360 Poplars ??? And let's re-equip them to be able to hit targets at medium ranges ... Hello Europe! And not only.

    Yes, let the rest of the world community see that we are vigilant and, if anything, bang. The whole world is in ruin, if that. In a word, everything works for us guys, where it is necessary, if we’ll definitely get there, and we don’t stand still, invent, modernize.

    Exactly. Does not work in the joint venture with America "Proton". By the way, is the Nundos flag still painted on launch vehicles?

    According to Western media, the United States authorities are worried about the next Russian test of the RS-12M Topol (SS-25) intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which was carried out at a test site near Astrakhan. Washington believes that Russia is launching an ICBM bypassing the 1987 treaty on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles. According to US officials, the launch of the Topol ICBM at a range of 3,2 thousand kilometers indicates that the production and testing of this type of missile may be prohibited under the INF Treaty. Washington’s claims also lie in the fact that Russia did not notify the international group of the Hague Code of Conduct (International Code of Conduct for Preventing the Proliferation of Ballistic Missiles) about the upcoming launch. As you know, the test flight was the fourth in the last two years. Launch of the RS-12M Topol ICBM at the Kapustin Yar training ground by the Strategic Missile Forces

    Good! It is only a pity that in flight she did not deviate slightly towards the United States, as the previous one. Listening to the cries of amers about this was the best music.

    Something the target location is not selected there. It would be necessary not to the east, but to the west. It could be attributed to a failure in the navigation equipment.
