Either in response to Washington’s reluctance to abandon the deployment of a European missile defense cluster, or as a test of the reliability of long-range missiles, one way or another, a few days ago, the Topol missile warhead successfully hit the target in the Kamchatka Peninsula.


Twenty minutes after launch, a new modification of the warhead demonstrated what it can do. Despite the fact that the most neglected Topol this year was 23, the warhead carried by the missile can be called an innovation by Russian military designers. If we talk about the notorious American missile defense, it is mainly designed to destroy ballistic missile blocks, the trajectory of which can even be calculated by a schoolboy. The new maneuvering warhead is capable of “confusing the cards” to the Americans not only by its intricate trajectory, but also by the fact that it contains so-called “dummies”. These are ordinary metal or composite discs that will be perceived by the enemy’s antimissiles as full-fledged warheads and disorient the entire missile defense system. It can be considered that this is quite an effective asymmetric solution as opposed to American radars in Poland and Romania. A good Russian proverb says that there is no reception against scrap, if there is no other scrap. So the Russian military manufacturers decided to “surprise and please” the US military with a new “gift” - a new “scrap” in the form of ICBMs.

It is worth noting that the successful launch of a Topol class rocket shows that even the Soviet weapon, despite its solid age, can tickle the nerves of the West. In connection with the recent insinuations of the American side about the unwillingness to either suspend the deployment of missile defense or even completely close the project, Russia has demonstrated that even if such a system appears in Eastern Europe, it will not pose any threat to maneuvering missiles of new types .

Representatives of the Russian military department say that in comparison with the previous generation of warheads, the new ones have become much more accurate. The error when such a nuclear weapon hits the target is no more than a couple of tens of meters from a distance of more than 5000 km. This “behind the eyes” is enough to destroy any potentially dangerous object in the territory of the alleged enemy.

Western media immediately dubbed the launch of Topol from the Plesetsk cosmodrome by an action that could provoke a spiral arms race. At the same time, as usual, any military initiative of the western side is, for obvious reasons, not considered to be such a spiral. For our country, such a position of foreign “colleagues” has long become commonplace, so no one pays special attention to it.

In this case, I just want to note that the current US president, even at one time, was actively involved in pressing the famous “Restart” button. However, no reboot, if to speak, did not happen directly, as well as Obama’s promise that, they say, the missile defense system will not be deployed, was not fulfilled, the American troops would come out of Afghanistan and Iraq. It turns out that in a strange eye, as always, these citizens see the mote, and they stubbornly do not want to notice their logs. Let in this case not something but the intercontinental Topol with new BBs will play the role of that mote.
By the way, the new BB, of course, will not be placed on the old "Topol". They are designed to be equipped with "Yarsy" and "Bulava". However, so far the tests of the Yarsov are not carried out, and the development of the shock force of the BB can be fully implemented on the good old Topol. Here he is such a "poplar" boo ...

    article, the author is completely nonsense !! What are the "blanks", where is it ?! “Poplar” is a monoblock, or an abandoned mass suddenly increased on an ancient rocket, what can you cram heavy false targets ?? (otherwise it really won't fly further than 5000, and the main targets in the enemy’s territory no closer than 8200) empty blanks will burn entering the atmosphere (what is atmospheric target selection by a missile defense system, Alexey Volodin probably never heard of). The missile defense system in Europe will be designed to intercept the ICBMs themselves, and not warheads.

    Solid pearls. One "New maneuvering warhead is capable of" confusing maps "with the Americans not only by its intricate trajectory, but also by the fact that it contains so-called" dummies "" which is worth it. Not only did the author put elements of the anti-missile defense system into the BB, so his American students also solved the problem of atmospheric target selection.
    FoMas rightly noted that the missile defense system is designed to intercept ICBMs at the ATU. Although the subtle logic of the log-lamer reached me, when intercepted at the OUT, promising BBs will certainly not be dangerous, however, like any other wink

          .
          And if, according to your logic, missile defense is ineffective against BR at AUG, then they will have to fight BB. So BB with the ability to maneuver we need.

            With UBB after separation from the RFG platform and entering the PSA, the missile defense system in California will fight, etc. (atmospheric selection is the third tier).

                    What do you mix everything together? It was about Romania and the possibility of interception from its territory. AEGIS will pose a threat if its platforms swim either into the White Sea or into Lake Baikal.

                      This system will be located both on land and at sea. Romania is part of the system. There will be both the Black Sea and the Norwegian Sea and in Mongolia, they are preparing a revolution so that they can use their territory later
                      The defense system is in three rings, so they will block all directions.

                        But the gimp is very expensive and noisy, but they do not want to sign a piece of paper about the missile defense against Russia.

                        I support. Figwam - excellent and consistent argument!
                        I also think that pro embraces us from all directions and threatens our deterrence potential - and our goals are not only in the states - in the event of a conflict, their bases and countries allies around the world should be under attack, so they are trying to arrange the pro from the south too

                        At the same time, our potential for a retaliatory strike will suffer - which actually stops them now from "decisive action"

                        As for the signing of a "piece of paper" on missile defense. First, missile defense cannot be directed against anyone by definition. Secondly, no one will ever sign a legally binding document on missile defense (again lol) missile defense because the international situation is extremely unstable and that no one can definitely predict between the countries even in the medium term.
                        Thirdly, all this fuss about the PRO-on 2/3 political game, mutually beneficial to both parties for obvious reasons.

                        If the United States establishes its missile defense system on its territory and its coastal zones, no one will be against it. If the United States, for thousands of kilometers across the seas and oceans, places this system near our borders, then this system concerns us, there are no countries with such a number ICBM: Since when has Europe become an unstable region?

    For you I quote Wikipedia. Oh, where as an accessible source.

    The number of 1 + warheads about 2 dozens of models

    Any questions?

      Thank you, but my sources are more reliable. Wikipedia in the MDB plan cannot be used as a source of information.
      What did you mean by that to say?
      I am generally surprised by the “awareness” of the log lamer, only a very narrow circle of people knows what kind of military equipment the rocket carried, many competent people can only guess what promising units were launched at the extreme launch, whether it was UBB, or the RS-24 middle-class power bank. And at the same time, everyone understands that this may well be misinformation.

        Good. Concretize.

        "Russia successfully tested the Topol missile with a new warhead"

        "...
        Today, September 3, at the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk Region, a test launch of the RS-12M Topol intercontinental ballistic missile was carried out, Interfax news agency reported with reference to the representative of the Strategic Missile Forces Vadim Koval.
        "The objectives of this launch were to confirm the stability of the basic flight performance of missiles of this class during extended periods of operation, as well as test of promising military equipment of intercontinental ballistic missiles"said Koval.

        At the same time, V. Koval said that the most effective response to the deployment of missile defense systems are the so-called asymmetric measures: reducing the visibility, recognition and predictability of the trajectories of warheads in combination with special means to overcome missile defense. .. "

        VarnagaIt wasn’t just “Poplar.” And the previous one was to the fact that “Poplars” have false goals, although they are monoblock.

          Good comment, it’s immediately obvious that you are a person with a higher technical education. This is really an excerpt from an objective source (INTERFAX. RU), compare it and the text "miracle" by A.A. Volodin. Such tests are held regularly to confirm combat readiness (one rocket is taken away, the second is shot). Further, on what basis does this author conclude that the development of anti-missile defense is “an effective response to missile defense in Poland and Romania” ?? Aegis will try to work on AUT, but not on UBB. (1st tier). The false targets that the “Topol” can carry are light and perfectly cut off by atmospheric selection (3 echelon), if the UBB starts maneuvering before entering the PSA, it will perfectly unmask itself against the background of the declared 20 passively moving dummies (2 echelon). Conclusion, practicing overcoming missile defense in the final section - maneuvering in the atmosphere with hypersound (altitude ~ 30 km.) Conclusion two - by Ur patriot .......

            Friends, do you know what the biggest trouble is in our dispute? No one has accurate data, why did we launch this and how can it overcome missile defense? And if anyone has the data, he will be silent, and he will do it right. Alas, the OUT has been and remains a weak spot for all BRs. Perhaps they will try to reduce it, as if they had reduced the AUT at Bulava. And the rest - what can we say? Only two things.

            1. The rocket left and banged right.
            2. The West did not like it.

            Trifle, but nice.

              I talked about this in a post that scored -4.
              According to OUT, it’s not, it seems, but very significant in comparison with the same “Blue”, the possibility of defeating which during the implementation of all stages of missile defense will be estimated as 82-84%. Again, with so many reservations and in the most favorable conditions for AEGIS.

    Aleksey Volodin ICBM reduction means Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. The use of this abbreviation in "... the intercontinental" Poplar "with new ICBMs. By the way, the new ICBMs, of course, will not be placed on the old" Poplars. "They are designed to be equipped with Yars and Maces. However, for now "Yars" tests are not carried out, and testing the impact strength of ICBMs can be fully implemented on the good old "Topol." creates a tautology, like "butter butter." ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles) "Topol", "Yars" and "Bulava" carry military equipment in the form of warheads (warheads).
    Dear moderators, please change in the above fragment of ICBMs on the BB.
