Development of the rocket "Sarmat" is in accordance with the schedule

The Russian Ministry of Defense again told the general public about the project for a promising intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for strategic missile forces. This time, Deputy Defense Minister Yu. Borisov told the project. In an interview for the Russian Service radio station News"The deputy minister revealed some information on the progress of work to create a new rocket.

According to Y. Borisov, at present, defense industry enterprises are conducting a number of research and development works related to the threats posed by the latest American projects of global impact systems using hypersonic technology. The supply of serial strategic missiles "Yars" and "Bulava" is already underway, and a new product of a similar purpose is being developed. Borisov suggested that by 2020, the Russian strategic forces would be updated not by 70%, as required by the current State Armaments Program, but by 100%.

The Deputy Minister of Defense noted that all work on the new project was proceeding in accordance with the schedule. The result of the project will be the creation and deployment of a new class of intercontinental ballistic missile of a heavy class on combat duty. The missile will receive a divided warhead with maneuvering warheads. According to Borisov, the promising missile will receive a set of means to overcome the enemy’s missile defense. In addition, the characteristics of the power plant will allow you to fly to the target through both the North and the South Pole.

Official information about the project of the new rocket, as always, is not completely complete. The secrecy regime around these works is such that representatives of the Ministry of Defense can read out only the most general information about them, and this does not yet allow for a general picture. Nevertheless, it is known that the new project is called Sarmat and has been developed since the end of the last decade. Earlier it was also reported that the heavy Sarmat ICBM should replace the aging P-36M items. The main enterprise of the project was selected State Rocket Center. Academician V.P. Makeev. In addition, several other organizations are involved in the development of the rocket.

According to the 2012 of the year, the process of creating a promising heavy ICBM will take several years, as a result of which it will be put into service with the Strategic Missile Forces no earlier than the 2020-22 of the year. A little later, representatives of the military department announced other deadlines for completing the work. Finally, at the end of last year, Colonel-General S. Karakayev, commander-in-chief of the Strategic Missile Forces, said that the operation of a heavy-class ICBM would begin at the end of the current decade. The latest statements by Yu. Borisov, namely the fact that the work on the project is proceeding in accordance with the schedule, can be considered as confirmation of the dates named by S. Karakaev.

The technical details of the Sarmat project are still unknown, although over the past time, representatives of the Ministry of Defense have made statements regarding the features of the new rocket several times. It is known that it will be used in the troops as a replacement for the aging P-36M family of missiles. From this we can draw approximate conclusions about its weight and size characteristics and method of basing. Probably, in size Sarmat will not seriously differ from Р-36М. From the factory, the missiles will be shipped in transport-launch containers.

The words of Yu. Borisov about the energy of a promising rocket can speak about the characteristics of rocket engines proposed for use, as well as about the general appearance of the rocket. Apparently, the architecture of the new rocket will use the old developments, with the result that the Sarmat ICBM will receive a two-stage design with a step of diluting the combat units. However, confirmation or denial of this has not yet been.

A prospective missile will receive a divided warhead with several warheads and a complex of means to overcome missile defense. From recent statements by Yu. Borisov, it follows that Sarmat will carry maneuvering warheads that can significantly improve the capabilities of the rocket. The number of warheads is unknown. Since the Sarmat ICBM must replace several P-36M missiles of several modifications, the number of warheads must be at least 7-8.

Despite the lack of specific information, recent reports on the Sarmat project are cause for optimism. According to Yu. Borisov, all work in this direction is proceeding in accordance with the schedule, which means that the SRC them. Makeeva and related enterprises have not yet encountered any serious problems and, as a result, can continue to work on creating a new one. weapons for SMF.

        Who of those present on the site is related to "Sarmat"? Today we had a man. I showed him our pearls about the rocket. The guy was sad. " discussing ". His words. He is tied with the head part. And, therefore, for the whole complex. There is no reason not to believe him. The system of Rosatom will never send profane people to us. Even for an excursion.

      "... the Sarmat project is a reason for optimism." That's right: there would be a reason, optimism to appear. I hope they will do it on time, and without unnecessary problems, then it will be possible to say about the reason (as opposed to the reason) for optimism.

    In addition, the characteristics of the power plant let fly to the goal both across the North and across the South Pole.
    This is the famous global strike rocket. Those. unlimited range. In fact, the launch of warhead into orbit, followed by an attack at an arbitrary point at any turn.

    The more powerful our strategic missile forces, the more restless the sleep of the mattresses. Ensuring the replacement of our ICBMs with new models is the key to the security of our country in the future.

      Most of all, mattress-makers are afraid of intercepting control of the Strategic Missile Forces by a real enemy, and the more powerful the Strategic Missile Forces, the more they are afraid. The recent turn of Yars to North America with a turn to the South is the best illustration of the process, because without external "help" Yars cannot fly like that.
      The sooner we get smarter and remake the products into an anti-missile version, the more we will be.

    It’s bad just not to dig out and equip a new launch shaft in 2-3 hours. And all the old ones are known and under the gun. Or maybe they are secretly building new mines ?! Then this is the matter - new missiles, but to new mines!

      Spetsstroy of Russia have not yet had time to break up to the end, so that the achievements in the construction, operation and maintenance of mine launchers should be preserved, that's the flag in their hands. And the fact that all silos are known also at gunpoint - so they need time to fly, and even get there - while their warheads fly, ours will already have time to start. Well, the calculation will die, so this is obviously clear - all calculations in the air defense and strategic missile forces are notorious kamikazes, there's nothing to be done here. So in any case, the heavy Sarmatian (you can’t even put him on the move) will be a very serious threat to the enemy. So good luck to the guys in the development, production and development of Sarmat!

    The next portion of water, all the information contained in the article could fit into one paragraph, and the main meaning, as always, is "we don't know anything, it's not clear, nobody says anything." All this about this rocket has already been published here many times, why there is another article with a bunch of text, scanty sensible information and a complete zero of NEW information - it is not clear.

      Yes, it is necessary to maintain morale, it is most convenient to say. what ever will be. How much noise they made about Yars, and still not one regiment on combat duty!
      All raw, unprocessed, hastily done. We are making missiles, but there is no infrastructure, there is no single headquarters that would correct the entire range of work. A bunch of all kinds of customers, representatives. The main ones are the lawyers who mold the contract, but there aren’t enough hands to do. No one is specifically responsible for the common cause.
      Makeevtsy, of course, well done, Liner made efficiently and without noise. But with a land missile they will not have problems like with a Mace? But every success to them!
      Yes, thanks to the rocket men who keep the old Strategic Missile Forces arsenal at an acceptable enough level !!!

    Good luck to the rocket launchers! It’s interesting that something is being worked out on the theme of the BRMC? Still, it’s much harder to find and hit. And Sarmat will most likely be a mine complex.
