The submarine "Vladimir Monomakh" completed the first launch of the Bulava missile

36



September 10 submarine "Vladimir Monomakh" project 955 "Borey" for the first time in his stories launched the ballistic missile P-30 "Bulava". The launch took place in the framework of tests of the submarine and the rocket. Start and flight of the rocket passed without any problems. Training warheads reached the Kura test site in Kamchatka. The first launch of the rocket from the new submarine was recognized as successful, and the official representative of the Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov, called the actions of the crew professional and competent.

The purpose of the launch of the Bulava rocket was to test the weapons and life support systems of the Vladimir Monomakh submarine. During launch, the submarine was underwater. On board the submarine was attended by representatives of the commission responsible for conducting state tests. During the flight, the missile systems operated normally and the warheads successfully arrived at a given area of ​​the Kura test site.

The launch of the Bulava missile on Wednesday was the first for the new K-551 submarine Vladimir Monomakh. At the beginning of last year, this submarine was taken out of the floating dock and its tests soon began. In mid-July of this year, it was announced that the factory testing was completed and the transfer of the boat to state testing. By the beginning of September, it was possible to check not only the driving performance of the new submarine and the operation of its systems, but also to carry out the first test launch of the P-30 ballistic missile.

Simultaneously with the testing of the Vladimir Monomakh rocket carrier, work continues in the framework of the Bulava project. After an unsuccessful test launch of 6 in September of 2013, the rocket developers continued fine-tuning the systems. Several new test launches were planned for 2014 year. It is noteworthy that during the year, the plans of the Ministry of Defense and the defense industry were repeatedly adjusted to reflect the progress of work on a particular project.

Initially it was claimed that in August-September it was planned to launch from the submarine “Vladimir Monomakh”, and in November, the submarine “Yury Dolgoruky” was to perform the shooting. Later there was an update: the submarine "Vladimir Monomakh" and "Alexander Nevsky" should perform launches no earlier than the end of September. Finally, in the last days of August it was claimed that the submarine carrier Yuri Dolgoruky would conduct the first test launch. As a result, the first launch of the Bulava this year was performed by the new submarine Vladimir Monomakh.

The recent launch of the rocket is an important milestone in the history of the Vladimir Monomakh submarine. It was laid in 2006 and launched at the very end of 2012. In 2013, factory tests started, and in 2014 - state tests. On September 10, state trials reached the stage of testing weapons systems. The successful launch of a rocket indicates that the submarine does not have serious weapons problems. In addition, this fact brings the submarine “to the finish line”. According to recent statements by representatives of the Ministry of Defense, the nuclear submarine Vladimir Monomakh will be transferred to the naval the fleet in December of this year.

To date, the head and first production submarines of the Borey 955 project are part of the fleet. These are K-535 "Yuri Dolgoruky" and K-550 "Alexander Nevsky", transferred to the Navy in January and December of 2013, respectively. By the end of this year, it is planned to hand over the second serial submarine of the 955 project, “Vladimir Monomakh”. In addition, on the stocks of the plant "Sevmash" there are two more submarines, under construction on the updated project 955А. The Prince Vladimir submarine was laid at the end of July 2013, and at the end of July 2014, the laying of the Prince Oleg boat took place. In total, up to 2020 of the year it is planned to build eight Borei submarine missile carriers.

The test launch of the rocket, which took place on Wednesday, is of great importance for the Bulava project, on which high hopes are pinned. Tests of a new missile for the Russian Navy submarines went with mixed success: successful launches alternated with emergency ones. From the autumn of 2010 to December of 2011, six successful test launches were performed in a row, however, the next launch, which took place in September of 2013, ended with the missile falling into the sea.

The twentieth start, made on Wednesday, was successful, which allows making positive conclusions. It is quite possible that during the past time all the flaws of the Bulava missile have been corrected and now it is ready for adoption. It should be noted that the adoption of the new missile system by the Russian Navy was planned as early as 2012, but so far no corresponding messages have appeared.

The Bulava project, despite all the difficulties, has a high priority. These missiles will be equipped with all the submarines of the Borey project, which, in turn, in the future should become the basis of the naval component of Russia's strategic nuclear forces. Due to the absence of other similar-purpose missiles that may be put into service over the next few years, the only acceptable way out is to continue the work on the finalization of the Bulava and its subsequent use on submarines.

      the mace took off and will take off with smoke, since it is a solid fuel rocket, and what they showed in the orth is p-29 it is liquid fuel, after it there is really no dust. the television crews adapted the video they had for the announced mace test.

        Someone is lying. Either the television crew, or the pin never flew away, or Sineva flew away, which is much more powerful, lighter and more reliable, but for which there will soon be no submarines carrying this wonderful rocket.

          Look what happens. Logistics of food supplies reached Latin America. This is communication across the oceans. And all sorts of different bourgeoisie may want to interrupt these communications. Consequently, an ocean fleet will be required to protect the sea lanes. If we do not acquire such a fleet in the near future, this will mean that trade with Latin America is just words

          Blue is heavier than the Mace, less power is compensated by greater accuracy, and so far there is nothing to talk about reliability. Blue test fell no less, and even more, and nothing, now flies reliably

    Due to the lack of other missiles of a similar purpose that can be put into service in the coming years, the only acceptable solution is to continue the development of the Bulava and its subsequent use on submarines. I don’t agree to eat other missiles originally from Miass and shoot further and payload more. Once again, they monkeyed west, spent a lot of money and time on this project. And not the fact that the rocket will fly next time.

            the West has no decent pro.
            Aegis systems with SM-3 blocks are still raw and not the fact that they are generally designed as missile defense systems. it is likely that this is an offensive weapon!
            smelly "patriots" ballistic missile will not intercept the fact!

                the question is not in range, but more in height and intercepted trajectory. how far the complex will be able to track and recognize fraud in combat units. the whole point is to intercept ICBMs in the initial section of the trajectory. further it’s much harder to intercept

      BP - Baltic landfill?

      if so, then from there our fucking "friends" can track the trajectory, performance characteristics at the initial section of the flight and then use this information to intercept.
      It seems to me precisely for this reason that in the Ministry of Defense such a fairy tale was concocted about the launch platform, so as not to track the nuclear submarines.
      I'm talking about this:

      Initially it was claimed that in August-September it was planned to launch from the submarine “Vladimir Monomakh”, and in November, the submarine “Yury Dolgoruky” was to perform the shooting.

        Ships built and repaired in Severodvinsk are being tested in the White Sea. Monomakh on the GI. Therefore, in the White Sea. As they say - nothing personal ...

    Mace - Solomonov’s diversion with the goal of becoming a monopolist in the production of strategic missiles and the strategic mistake of those who made decisions on the Mace. Solomonov and Co. are unable to launch a sea-launched missile unified with Topol and YaRS due to the fundamentally different launch conditions. That is why the combat units "arrived in the area of ​​the firing range" and not "hit targets at the firing range."

      That is why the combat units "arrived in the area of ​​the firing range" and not "hit targets at the firing range."

      Of course, I am not an expert in military terminology, but doesn’t the “target defeat” really mean the regular operation of combat units (undermining, in general)? Since no one was planning to undermine anything here, is it perhaps appropriate to call the result “arrival” and not “defeat”?

    We have an excellent school for designing liquid fuel rockets. At one time, they already gave birth to an underwater solid fuel monster. Why again step on the same rake?

    the fact that Solomon’s mutilated something is understandable, but there’s no need for a “Bulov” to bring it to mind, the carriers are designed for it and they can’t be redone under the liquid-fuel “Sineva”

      Having slightly supplemented the verse in the song "Scuba divers", we get the Mango-mango groups, -
      "... we have such devices (submarines, missiles ...),
      but we won’t tell you about them ... "
      I’m also wondering why the rocket flies out from under the water with the marching engine turned on? I thought that it was first pushed out with compressed air above the water surface, about 10-15 meters, and then the marching engine is turned on.
