4202 Project: Hypersonic Mystery

24
In the middle of the summer of this year, with a light hand of American journalists, the foreign press began discussing a promising Russian project of a hypersonic aircraft. Foreign journalists managed to find out that this development has the designation “4202” and Yu-71, and also to establish some supposed facts about the project. Nevertheless, the majority of information about the Russian project is classified, which is why the discussion of few facts gradually turned to making assumptions and estimates, as well as the very real speculations.


It should be noted that the project "4202" really exists and work on it has been underway, at least since the beginning of the current decade. However, despite the great interest from the public, the basic information about this development still remains under the stamp of secrecy. Nevertheless, some fragmentary data on a promising project has already been announced in various open sources. They do not provide a complete picture, but provide an opportunity to get a general idea of ​​the latest project.

The first known reference to the topic “4202” refers to the report on the activities of the NPO Mashinostroyenia corporation for the year 2009. Some of the works mentioned in this document were commissioned by the corporation to them. Khrunichev. At the same time, the project was mentioned in the context of the court proceedings: the NPO Mashinostroyenia owed the related organization more than half a million rubles. The report indicated that by 1 January 2010, the court had made a decision to partially satisfy the claim of the GKNPTs them. Khrunichev, however, the details of the project itself, for obvious reasons, were missing.


Launch of MBR UR-100Н УТТХ in launch vehicle configuration. Baikonur, 14 December 2014


The newspaper "Tribuna VPK" (the corporate edition of the NPO Mashinostroenia) in the 13-number for 2010 year casually mentioned a promising project. The article “Top class of low zone” mentions that when organizing the production of “complex circumferential housing frame of the Ф1 compartment on 4202”, the specialists of the enterprise had to apply several original solutions for the production of complex shape parts on a CNC milling machine. As a result, all the tasks were successfully solved, resulting in a complex contour part of the frame.

The next time the project “4202” is mentioned in the article “Nonmetals workshop. Today and tomorrow ”in the 21 edition of the newspaper for the same year. According to this material, the workshop is actively involved in the implementation of a promising project and is engaged in the manufacture of non-metallic parts for the new ФХNUMX, Ф1 and Ф2 sections of the new product, supplied by related enterprises. Naturally, no details regarding the products were mentioned.

Later, information appeared about another related organization participating in the project. Thus, in 2011-12, the Orenburg PO Strela, in preparation for participating in the 4202 project, carried out a certain modernization of its production capacities. According to reports, after the completion of the reconstruction of its workshops, the organization was to take part in the mass production of promising products.

It can be assumed that, at the same time, the production facilities of the project’s main enterprise, NPO Mashinostroyenia, were also upgraded.

In the 47 edition of the newspaper “Tribuna VPK” for 2012, the New Year's greetings were published by the general director and general designer of the NPO Mashinostroeniya Alexander Leonov. In his address to his colleagues, the head of the company noted that the President of Russia had defined tasks for the near future on the promising topic “4202”. As before, the representative of the company did without unnecessary details that cannot be published in the press.

Confirmed data on the appearance of the product "4202" or Yu-71, as it is called in some sources, are not yet available. For now, one can only try to guess what a hypersonic aircraft looks like, created by Russian industry. Some assumptions on this subject can be made on the basis of data on other hypersonic programs, including foreign ones. The version of the relatively complex external contours of the apparatus is to a certain extent confirmed by the old article of the newspaper Tribuna VPK.

It is known that in the composition of the new product there are at least three separate compartments with different equipment. In addition, there is reason to believe that both metallic and non-metallic aggregates are used in the design of the apparatus. For obvious reasons, specific materials remain unknown.

Information on the use of the 4202 product as a promising military equipment for intercontinental ballistic missiles suggests that it has the ability to carry a warhead, as well as equipped with a guidance system and some controls.

All available data on the progress of the 4202 project suggests that the promising hypersonic product was not tested before 2010-12. However, there are other assumptions. For example, in February, the 2004 of the year at the Baikonur test site was the launch of a UR-100N UTTH type ICBM at a training target at the Kura test site. Soon, the first deputy chief of the General Staff, Yuri Baluyevsky, said that during this training, a certain spacecraft that is able to fly at hypersonic speed, as well as maneuver along the course and altitude, was tested. Thus, it can be assumed that the launch of 2004 of the year had something to do with the current theme of “4202”.

At the very end of 2011, the Interfax news agency, citing a senior source in the General Staff, reported that in 2010, the strategic missile forces conducted the first successful test launch of a missile with advanced combat equipment. It was also reported that on December 27 a test launch of the UR-100N UTTH rocket was planned, carrying a new combat equipment with the ability to overcome existing and prospective missile defense systems. What kind of warheads were tested in 2010 and 2011, was not specified.

According to unconfirmed reports, two more test launches of the ICBM UR-100N UTTH with advanced combat equipment took place in 2013 and 2014. The Russian Ministry of Defense or the defense industry did not comment on this information. Thus, information from foreign sources on two missile launches with 4202 products on board may not be true.

The reason for the mass discussion this summer was the information about the testing of the hypersonic device "4202" at the end of February. According to some foreign publications and specialized portals, February 26 held another test launch of the product "4202", the carrier of which again became the UR-100N UTTH rocket. As before, the military did not refute or confirm the version of the tests of hypersonic technology.

If the available fragmentary information is true, then at present the prototype carriers of the 4202 / U-71 product are ballistic missiles UR-100НТТТХ. Nevertheless, these missiles can hardly be considered as carriers of promising military equipment used in combat duty. Products of this type have long been discontinued and are gradually being decommissioned.

Thus, one of the promising ICBMs currently being developed can become a real carrier of new combat equipment. Analytical center Jane's Information Group believes that the most likely carrier of military units of the type "4202" is a promising missile RS-28 "Sarmat". Assumptions about the composition of the combat equipment of such missiles are also expressed. Known information about the two projects suggests that the Sarmat rocket will be able to carry up to three 4202 products.

The current lack of information at the present time allows us to speak with confidence only about the very existence of the 4202 project and that the Russian specialists managed to achieve some success, bringing it, at least, to the stage of building prototypes of advanced equipment. Other information is still fragmentary or not available to the press, professionals and the general public.

According to various estimates, the use of hypersonic aircraft as warheads for ICBMs will significantly increase the strike potential of strategic missile forces. Due to their ability to maneuver, such delivery vehicles will be able to effectively break through existing and prospective anti-missile systems. Modern warheads flying to a target along a ballistic trajectory at high speed are quite a difficult target to intercept. A hypersonic device capable of changing the flight trajectory, in turn, will become an even more complex goal. Moreover, it has the right to the existence of the opinion that the interception of such targets at the moment is simply impossible.

If the existing assumptions about the purpose of 4202 products are true, then in the foreseeable future, the Strategic Missile Forces of Russia will be able to get a unique weaponable to significantly increase their combat potential. This means that ICBMs, already leading in a kind of race with a missile defense system, will receive an additional advantage, because of which it will be extremely difficult to catch up with them.

        There is no smoke without fire. For a minute, suppose that such blocks for hyper sound are created or will be created in the near future. And, say, they will be mounted on the Rubezh ICBM, or on the Topol and Topol-M missiles, which are now being replaced by Yars. In this case, how much will Russia's nuclear power increase? In this case, the entire Amerov-European missile defense can be safely thrown into the trash.

    In February 2015 at the Dombrovsky training ground, products 4202 (Yu-71) were tested. Estimated speed up to 11 thousand. km \ hour.
    (video from the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation). There, about the Skif-D combat laser on the IL-76 MD (A-60).

      Skif-D is not a laser, but a model of a battle station: D is a demonstrator used as a load for Energy. And on the flying laboratory A-60 there was a real combat laser. Study already the material, and then for you the same as for the comrade they will repeat this absurdity.

        Engineer ..... Skif-D is not a laser, but a model of a battle station: ....

        You are absolutely right. I summarized in a hurry, making a link to the video. “Skif-D” (not the secret name “Pole”) is a prototype of a combat orbital station with laser weapons on board.
        At Skif D, it was planned (in the second quarter of 1987) to test, practically ready for this moment, in the NGO named after Lavochkina, system of instantless exhaust (SBV) carbon dioxide (CO2)
        used for the operation of the laser. However, the use of CO2 could reveal the purpose of the apparatus, so a mixture of xenon with krypton was chosen for testing. The launch was getting ready in a big hurry because
        planned dates. “Skif-DM” (M-stands for mock-up) on the Energia launch vehicle, the byp was successfully put into orbit, but due to the passage of the “flip” engine signal, the “skif” could not stabilize
        in the direction and it had to be "flooded" in the ocean. Then began a "friendship" with the United States and Gorbachev
        said, we have closed for peaceful space and the program. Something like that, in a nutshell.

    I think that the so-called METEORIT in Chelyabinsk was the first test; according to rough estimates, the speed is 20-28 km / s the speed of a gift from our foreign partners!



    In the second video .... SU-27 also crashes like a UFO ... but to me .. it is ME and my opinion!
    There the rocket is without reference thrust and speed about the same or a little less! or engines without mass rejection! THAT that on Man-made plates, etc.

    About the disaster in Lviv. In the past, pilot test pilot 929 GLITs, Vladimir Toponar, who switched to military service in the Ukrainian Armed Forces in 1992, piloted. The UFO version is one of the versions. But, the show itself was organized ugly. Flying over spectators is strictly prohibited. Two weeks before this event, these same pilots on this plane were supposed to perform at some show in Turkey. When they arrived there, the Turks, although they were Turks, nevertheless looked at their flight books, and seeing there the numbers of a scanty raid over the past year ... they refused their speech and sent back. And with a UFO, in this case it’s a search for a black cat in a dark room .. where it is all the more absent.

    This is not very clear here. Since the Sarmatian is proposed as a replacement for the R-36M2 Voyevoda (the famous Satan), it should be a heavy missile. On the R-36M2 (weighing no less than 211 tons) there are 10 individual guidance warheads with a capacity of 0,75 Mt each, plus a powerful missile defense penetration complex (various false targets, dipole reflectors and other nishtyaks). On the RS-28, in the presence of hypersonic warheads that actually nullify the enemy’s missile defense, a false amount of space and mass in a rocket can be saved for false purposes, that is, relatively speaking, to place more warheads. And we are told that only 3 BB can be delivered to these missiles. What's the catch? They have been made much more powerful (several megatons each), have the tonnage of the rocket been reduced so much, or is it just taken away less space for the warhead, and more on engines?

One will throw an idea that is plausible, but incorrect, and our experts will rush to refute and show their knowledge with ardor. Okay, if this is a kid with information from open sources, but it happens that a knowledgeable person in excitement can blurt out!

      1. Less “powerful.” Quo are completely different, there is no sense in “kuzkin’s mothers.” The starting mass is promising, they say, will be in the 100 ton

      -for pulses (only transverse) with a frequency of 1, a second beat (so it is necessary to bypass the capabilities of the RV- it has about 1 in 2 seconds) on the maneuvering path will require about 300kg of fuel component mass.Respectively...
      -for movement at the gas processing plant along lay-up and maneuvers in relatively dense layers of the atmosphere, thermal protection, usually of the ablation type, will be required ...Respectively...
      Note BB Minitman is decelerated from 6,9-7,2 km / s jo 3,2-3,8km / s forcibly, so as not to burn, and his entry angle is approximately under 60-70 (from horizontal), so the transit time for relatively dense layers of the medium is small, this not GPZ BB with the possibility of correction for the target - / + 500km.

      Sarmat will carry a load of up to 4,5 tons (presumably). When it will be necessary to put more BB!

It is not even clear what this product is intended for (it may not be a hypersonic unit for Sarmat). So let's wait at least for something more specific, then we will discuss it.

    In what? Well, firstly, no one ever said that the Sarmat would be as heavy as the Voivode. The term heavy is either a starting block of more than 1 tons, or abandoned, EMNIP of more than 106 tons. Just a new block can be heavier due to its specificity

    So far, on the Internet and in the corridors of the State Department (which is similar in level of thinking), useless disputes about bilateral violations of the INF Treaty by the US and Russia continue to subside, which, without any documentary evidence (with the exception of American "targets"), looks pretty stupid , the community is a little behind the upcoming changes in the field of global containment, relying only on existing developments. Amid, among other things, the unreasonable claims of the States (including the September ones), although the extreme launch of the Rubezh to the “necessary” range put everything utterly in its place.

    The current concept of warfare of the United States and NATO provides for the achievement of the maximum number of goals of war or conflict extremely quickly and as efficiently as possible. In this vein, most samples of the so-called "smart weapons", precision weapons and weapons of "quick global strike." Characteristic features of the future use of such weapons are speed of delivery to the target, controlled escalation of the conflict (to ensure the maximum reduction in the likelihood of reciprocal use of WMD), high accuracy and high combat effectiveness of use (ideally: one shot - one hit target).

    Despite the existence of a postulate in the Doctrine of the Russian Federation on the use of nuclear weapons in response to aggression using conventional weapons, it also states that such use is possible only if the state’s very existence is threatened. Of course, in the conditions of the opening by the RF warning system of a massive missile launch, a retaliatory strike will be carried out immediately. However, in the context of a gradual increase in the intensity of the conflict, the choice of the moment and methods of delivering attacks with strategic weapons is much more difficult and, first of all, this is due to the undesirability of escalating the conflict into a nuclear one without the threat of an adversary to realize “total destruction”.

    Naturally, from a certain moment, the use of tactical nuclear weapons and strategic non-nuclear weapons, such as CD X-101, will begin. However, such a weapon in a conflict of medium intensity is not a panacea either. Tactical nuclear weapons solve tactical tasks. At the same time, the main blow will be to targets in Europe, but the structure of the state of the likely overseas enemy will not suffer. Non-nuclear cruise missiles are still insufficient and they possess a number of vulnerabilities of this class of weapons.

    At the same time, the currently existing ICBM missile systems cannot solve problems in this phase of conflict development, since everyone has nuclear equipment. Although they have a number of fundamental advantages - a short time from the decision to launch, a short time to deliver the ammunition to the target, high reliability of delivery (lack of influence of enemy air defenses, high probability of overcoming missile defense using modern PCB facilities).

    To expand the capabilities of the Russian Federation in such conditions, it was decided to equip the new heavy rocket being developed with non-nuclear military equipment. What some real and former military leaders have already mentioned in passing.

    However, the principal novelty is not to put a high-explosive or fragmentation part on the rocket - this is too expensive and ineffective, especially for a heavy missile system.

    As a result of the joint work of military and defense industry specialists, a fundamentally new solution was proposed. The novelty lies in the high combat effectiveness due to the merging of the three technologies: classical rocket, hypersonic planning and a fundamentally new warhead. All these technologies exist and are tested. Now they are being put into practice. The synthesis of technology promises to generate a very formidable and multifunctional weapon.

    Rocket technologies exist and have been worked out for a long time. The design of a new heavy rocket is based on time-tested solutions and has all the advantages of such rockets. In addition, the removability of combat equipment will provide both the possibility of using classical nuclear BB and new warheads. This will ensure greater flexibility of combat use in various conditions of the situation and the development of military conflict.

    The missile is planned to be equipped with several third-generation hypersonic maneuvering units, work on which is now being conducted in parallel with already flying second-generation products, which are currently undergoing tests for another missile. The first was the Albatross. The second-generation products that are currently undergoing tests, although they fly, still have a number of fundamental children's diseases of the new technology. In the third generation, the experience of failures has already been taken into account, new structural materials and control systems based on a new element base have been used.

    The movement of the data of the aircraft is not recorded by the enemy SPRIAU, as the flight takes place below the radar of the action radar. The rocket will practically not leave the atmosphere, which will create difficulties not only for the ground level of the SPRNU, but also for the space one. And maneuvering blocks and bypassing the missile / air defense zones will prevent the calculation of the aiming point and the defeat of the blocks on the approach to the target.

    The principal difference from the previously existing samples of such systems is a significant reduction in size and weight due to the use of new SU and new materials, which will allow to place on the rocket several such devices.

    But the real "highlight" of the complex will be several options for its warhead. Along with the classic nuclear warheads of various capacities, a completely new one will be used. Previously, systems based on similar principles were not used in the world. Despite the fact that this warhead is non-nuclear, the effectiveness of its use is comparable to the use of a nuclear charge of ultra-low power and significantly exceeds the use of the most powerful explosives. Kinetics makes an additional contribution to the power of the explosion, which is unattainable when applying classical Raman scattering with their warhead. Work on this topic is carried out in very limited cooperation, while the integration of the results and the military-strategic justification is carried out by 4 Central Research Institute of the Ministry of Defense. Naturally, the technical details of this work are not communicated not only to the Headquarters of the Strategic Missile Forces, but to us, however, some of the stated and confirmed key capabilities of this the systems are really impressive.

    It can be hoped that at a new stage in the development of rocket technologies, the presence of several heavy missiles in the Shlyambur equipment option will allow for effective non-nuclear destruction of fortified objects, command posts, power plants, dams and other especially important objects on enemy territory with high likelihood and in the shortest possible time, which will significantly affect the armed conflict at various stages of its development.
