15
The Strategic Missile Forces celebrate the 30 anniversary of the Topol missile system, RIA News message from the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Dmitry Andreev.



“Today, strategic missilemen mark a round date — exactly 30 years ago, the first Topol missile systems were put on combat duty,” Andreev said.

He recalled that the first mobile complex with intercontinental missiles took over on duty 23 July 1985 g in the Republic of Mari-El. “At present, Yoshkar-Oliinsky Connection is currently in possession of the Topol PGRK (Mobile Earth Rocket Complex). In 2016, the division was planned to retool to the newest Yars mobile base system, ”the officer said.

According to him, about a hundred of mobile Topol are currently on duty in the country. “Over these 30 years, about 100 missile launches took place, there was not a single emergency launch. It is not only the most reliable, but also the most accurate in the world. weapon “Megaton class weapons,” said Andreev.

Help Agency: "RT-2PM Topol" (according to NATO classification - SS-25 Sickle, that is, "Serp") is a Soviet / Russian mobile ground strategic missile system with a three-stage solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile RT-2PM. Considered one of the most successful Russian missile systems. ”

    A good complex, not for nothing that the Phishington Regional Committee delivers a headache.

    The complex is good for its time. Replacement of the monoblock Poplar with Yars is ripe. And to call Poplar "the most accurate in the world and megaton" is probably too much. Reliable - yes.

      Reliable

      Suffice it to say that even the launches of "shape-shifters" (products that have been in an accident) all went through routinely. As a rule, missiles of the oldest series and those who have been in emergency situations are fired off. In general, from the moment the complex was installed on the database, all UBPs were successful. reliability 100%.
      And for all the time LCI, only one launch was unsuccessful in 1983 and two more failed for reasons unrelated to the actual product.

    Yes, the complex was really able to stay on the database for 3 decades. And this is a significant achievement. The gradual replacement for Yars is underway, but the rate of rearmament depends on many factors. And stretch over time. Now it is the turn of the rearmament of several divisions. At least 4 rearmament and 2 additional armament. Something on "Yars", something on "Rubezh". It will take at least 6-8 years. Plus, do not forget that if a decision is made to deploy the Barguzin, the deadlines will shift to the right, since the same plant will do it.

    For humans, yes. For our solid fuel complexes, this is still the limit. Alas, we cannot yet do what the Americans can do with their "Minutemans"

      and what do they do with them? endlessly extend the life and support 40+ summer rockets?)

    The designers made a good defense, making the aggressor think better. It seems that the latest complexes will reliably instill fear in the enemies and serve for peace. Glory to the Russian gunsmiths!

    They do not just extend the life of the operation, but have carried out a complete modernization of the complex, replacing everything, including engines, which ours are not yet able to do. As a result, they are armed with a complex with the same name, but with completely new engines and a guidance and control system ...
    But we extend the life to a certain period without doing these missile manipulations. And their modernization is cheaper than the creation of new missiles

      This is which side to look at. It’s one thing to replace the head ... yes, yes, we also have to re-equip existing missiles with new combat equipment. They just don’t talk about it. But the replacement of electronics, the complete replacement of solid fuel and the components of the marching engine is similar to the summer holes of the Trishkin Kaftna or the cosmic repair of a dilapidated building. It is cheaper and easier to create a new rocket in 10 years. Although they plan to develop a new rocket ... we’ll see a decision on the beginning of the project accept until the end of 2016

    Whatever side you look at. where we write off - they upgrade, getting a complex with far worse performance

    It is clear that when we do not know how to do this, then the enemy is patching the trishka caftan. True, our maximum time spent on the database is limited to 30-35 years, and our opponent has 40 and another 20-30 plan to extend the life of the aircraft. As a result, we have 30 years of complexes on the database and we write them off, and they have 40 and another 20 they decided to extend as a result of modernization
