In the United States conducted a test ICBM "Minuteman-3"


According to the publication, "the launch was carried out from the airborne base Vandenberg, located on the coast north-west of Los Angeles, on the night of Friday local time."

"According to the scenario of the exercise, after about 30 minutes the rocket successfully hit a conventional target, located at a distance of 6,5 thousand kilometers in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean," the agency reported.

As stated by the Deputy Head of the Pentagon, Robert Wark, “the launch goal was to demonstrate the capabilities of the US nuclear potential to countries such as Russia, China, and North Korea.”

“The United States, Russia and China routinely launch missiles to prove they are reliable. This is a signal confirming our readiness to use nuclear weapon for the defense of the country if necessary, ”he added.

Earlier, American media reported that the US Armed Forces are armed with the 450-i order of the Minuteman-3 ICBM, which are located at the 3-x bases in Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota.

          These are not skeptics. I recognize the handwriting. In the same way, puppeteermers at one time commented on the Bulava launches - it did not take off, did not fly, did not hit. And the launch of the Mace for them is like a horse pathogen for a rabbit.
          There is generally neither minus nor plus. The usual informational message, like a running line on the TV.
          And since Minitman is an ancient rocket, we should not care at all.

                I do not agree, dear. Enemy is nothing to respect, in theory. How can you respect someone whose goal is to take your life? The enemy must be feared, for fear is the force that allows a person to build a fizuha. Only fear, not panic. Guided, competent fear. Dumb courage, the same panic. only in another manifestation. We are for those brave people who have not clown glasses for a decade after thirds ... Those who survived were those who knew how to be afraid. The most correct skill.

                  You need to love the enemy!) When you love the enemy, you know him better, and better knowing the enemy, you get an advantage over him ... I didn’t come up with this, this is from the ancient treatise on the military art of Sun Doses. The enemy is the only one who helps you to reveal your shortcomings, makes you constantly improve, make yourself invincible ... That's why it is said: love your enemy, otherwise, if you love your brother - what is your reward?

                    The main enemy is you yourself, he is the most insidious and dangerous. A prerequisite for victory is knowledge of oneself (i.e., a sober assessment of one's strengths), and when you know the enemy, victory will ALWAYS be with you.

                        Only fools and the dead are not afraid. And the former, as a rule, quickly pass into the category of the latter, because fear, if you can control it, is useful in a sense. Fear is a normal human reaction to the unknown, only people with a mentally ill are not afraid of anything ..

                        By the way, for very "gifted" minus players, a pinch of fear is needed - this is normal, but if the fear becomes excessive, then a catastrophe for the source of fear is inevitable. If a person stands on the edge of an abyss and fear overcomes him, then Mother Nature will push him into the abyss herself, since in fear, a person throws into the air a huge excess potential, and the forces of nature extinguish this excess potential, destroying the very source of potential. Here are fools without knowing it and perish.

                        Summing up the post, which turned out to be peppered, I thank everyone for their indifference. A person always wants to look better than he really is, and that’s the downside. Special thanks for them. The rest is a feature of the Russian language, where, fear, a feeling that allows you to mobilize all the hidden resources of the body. Fear, timidity, indecision, are varieties of fear that influence decision making, both positively and negatively. Cowardice- A vice born not of fear, but of selfishness and what is connected with it. Inherent in a person of weak spiritual organization. Panic is a child of cowardice and stupidity. Despair, the realization that you can not take revenge. I hope on this and finish. laughing

                      Fear is a fundamental human feeling. In battle, an experienced warrior knows how to control it. If survives, fear begins, as a rule, after the battle, when the tension subsides or after a long time in nightmares. Therefore, it is called the neutral concept of combat stress. As far as I remember in military psychology, there are 6 degrees of fear: from anxiety or fear to horror and panic.

                smile This is what anyone will call it. Burrowing into the ground during shelling out of fear or fear. And also, surprise, our first two hundredth received a bullet in the peritoneum, was very surprised that his blood was yellow-green, then they enlightened, this bile poured out, and the blood spilled over the internal organs, from which he asked to drink until his last breath, was buried in Zelenograd , Kurkin, Seryozha. In the photo of the obelisk, it is sixteen years old. The Order of the Red Star, although it knew how to "fear", was simply out of luck. Fart in war is somewhat higher than courage or fear. But luck does not shine for the brave. It would certainly be interesting to hear the opinion of the resource "brave" after the first fight, if only their courage is not from haloperidol.

                  The "fearless", composing legends about them, was no one scared! But their selfless "fearlessness" is filled with fear for their loved ones, a high and pure impulse, a sense of duty, outweighing the fear of their own death! Only fools are not afraid, but who will give them weapons?

                Yes dear, yes. The foreman said that we have one nationality — the Soviet man, and made him a captor of Belarus ..... There is something that civilians should hear in verse, but there is a prose of battle. The military did his job, and there, let them colorize. Only every job needs tools. There are many tools in the work of the military, but how to say it, uh, for example, a non-standard decision to execute an order was sometimes called courage, but the success of this was dictated by fear. smile

          Does our country need such people? IMHO, We need it, but this phenomenon should not be encouraged, a person should first of all be guided by his own mind, for this God gave it to us, based on the fullness of the information received, whatever it may be, to draw conclusions and learn from mistakes.

            For some reason, I also think so. If you add urine mule to the fuel (since they don’t have donkeys), then the characteristics will increase by 5-10%. But if you ask Erdogan for donkey urine, a missile will fly around the Usraina globe 2 times. True, the Pentagon still can not forgive where this crap will fall.

            what is written in the article is an ordinary routine, not worthy of attention ...
            By no means, dear, not at all! Everything would be right if not for the comments on this launch!
            Previously, how was it? Launched (and 2 times a year!) And comments like: We are strong, we are powerful, we can withstand any threats. And they didn’t comment at all, they just reported everything.
            And now rhetoric has been added! They not only launch the Minuteman, but also declare -
            Deputy Pentagon Chief Robert Work: "The purpose of the launch was to demonstrate the capabilities of the US nuclear potential to countries such as Russia, China, North Korea ... This is a signal confirming our readiness to use nuclear weapons ..."
            Write off everything to the campaign that has begun? It is unlikely to be right. The cannibalistic essence is this: as soon as possible climbs out!
            On the other hand, it makes it possible to silence our pro-Amov NGOs and pro-Western liberals who are calling us into the arms of the US civilization. Which will need to be done, but only in a clever way, and not clumsy in the "agitprop" style.

          It’s already something, but it’s difficult to accuse me of hatred. But it's not that.
          Nothing extraordinary just happened. Such launches were and will be. This is a routine. And there is no need to make a sensation out of it. Accordingly, we do not need to break spears.

          No, don't care. Only a hat-taker can reason this way. The enemy must not be underestimated. Moreover, the Minitman-3 missiles underwent regular modernization, so from 2007 to 2012, the Mk.12A warheads were replaced by Mk.21, guidance and control systems, and power plants.

          I fully support you. You can also add that since Russia does not have a missile defense system, the United States is not developing new generation ICBMs. As soon as Russia starts developing missile defense, the development of ICBMs will immediately begin. And these "Minitment" can cause colossal damage. So don't underestimate these missiles.

          Tests of the rocket equipped with the 15F173 warhead were completed in March 1988. In September 1989, flight tests of a rocket equipped with a "light" warhead were completed. On August 11, 1988, by a government decree, the R-36M2 complex with the 15F173 warhead was put into service. On August 23, 1991, the R-36M2 missile system with a 15F175 warhead was adopted.
          In December 1988, the complex was put on alert. The first missile regiments armed with the R-36M2 took up combat duty near the town of Dombarovskiy in the Orenburg region. Until 1990, the complexes were put on alert in divisions stationed near the cities of Uzhur and Derzhavinsk. In NATO, the R-36M2 Voevoda missile received the designation SS-18 Satan (Satan).

          "Blue" and "Liner" is the answer. Reliability and high precision. Agree, what's the difference than answering, it is not necessary to compare "classmates". This comparison speaks only of one thing - the Institute of Heating Engineering cannot make "competitive" products. They made a mess of the Makeev Design Bureau with a Bulava. So it was the Makeevites who brought the Bulava to the test. "Normal" money washing in those years.

          Good afternoon, namesake!
          The manufacturability of the Amer product is explained by the culture of production and priorities in the chemistry of turbojet engines. This is clear...
          But there is such a thing as "weapon survivability."
          Without comparing ICBMs by this criterion, you unconsciously take amers out of the "dangerous" zone for comparison. Our Topol / Yars will be "viable": dual-based (there is a variant of the PGRK, not just silos), they carry a missile defense system, they have a KAS on the OS. Ams, as far as I know, do not really bother with this. They even have "militia" corps not made in "anti-laser" version. In terms of combat equipment, I'm afraid to lie, but even there the defense is weak ...
          So, in these "races" I would still bet on Yars. Younger, more modern, with missile defense bells and whistles, changes the place of deployment at the choice of the leadership ...
          Something like that, from memory without preparation. hi

I don’t understand one thing, why would someone call a cheer patriot for an opinion that does not coincide with yours. After all, no one called you a jerk idiot rejoicing in the test of an American carrier ..

      First: I do not like people who, being far from the military-industrial complex, are madly proud of the achievements of the national defense industry, while believing that stupid monkeys are sitting "over the hill" with neither missiles nor planes flying. As a rule, such an article is minus.
      Second: I do not like people who approve of the news about the launches of our "ICBMs", shouting that this is a hint to the States so that they know their place, etc., but at the same time, the news about the launches of ICBMs by the Americans is greeted as provocations on their part.
      Thirdly (and most importantly): putting a minus to the article, ur-patriots lower the rating of the author. What is he? He just posted the news! In Russia, the messenger didn’t chop heads for bad news

          There is nothing wrong with patriotism; it is even remarkable that a person is patriotic. But you need to think with your head, and not shout everywhere yes "Americans are monkeys with a black monkey at the helm and that the army is not good for anything"
          By the way, read the newspapers from 30-40 of the history, as they shouted there too, let this Hitler and Germany slip up, yes, we will reach Berlin in a couple of days, our weapons are the best in the world, etc. And only through the efforts of millions of people could win in many years. So it’s better to respect and overestimate the enemy than underestimate him.

            The enemy, like any situation in general, needs to be assessed ADEQUATE for the degree of his threat. The correctness of making a managerial decision depends on this. The more data available - the more accurate the enemy’s score. All this requires intelligence, analytics, as well as the intelligence and will of the leader.
            Overestimating and underestimating the enemy is equally harmful for making the right decision to minimize / localize / eliminate the threat.
            These are the basics of the "decision making" course of tactics and OI.

          Perhaps yes. Plus articles from which I learn new facts from history, or important (and not so) news about what is happening in Russia and in the rest of the Universe. In this case, a plus is something like: "Thank you, I accepted the information." As for the comments, it's easier here: everyone has the right to express their opinion, you can't appreciate everyone. You can agree, you can argue, but, in my opinion, it is useless for adult uncles to get involved in the game of plus-minus-epaulettes, let's leave this fun to the shkolota.

            This is, if the comment is "one-layer" - a direct assessment of the fact, or an open opinion on the problem. But sometimes he will write correctly in words, but he will attach the opposite picture. Think about how to evaluate this masterpiece!
            But the most difficult thing is the "multilayer". One good friend of mine, Vladimir, suffers from this (without disclosing his nickname). Here we have to enter into a discussion about controversial points, tk. colleagues are not always accurate and fair in their judgments. Or one of the 4 or 5 messages is discordant with your vision of the problem.

        PPKS, as a person who for 5 years had a direct relationship to the implementation of the INF and START treaties and worked at the same plant for the production of those Topol for a total of 8 years, I would not rush to write off the Minuteman and Trident missiles from accounts. All these are means of practically guaranteed delivery of warheads directly to their destinations. Which, however, does not in any way cancel or minimize the possibility of a retaliatory strike. For a long time after that, I personally dreamed of nuclear explosions, which I observed from the balcony, and the city pond evaporating before our eyes. I won't wish it on us either. nor anyone else to be targeted by the launched Minutemans. Our weapons are no less formidable, but this is just a guaranteed destruction of all. Do we want Armageddon? No. Another thing is when we have no choice, it will not suit men to slug. Peace to all!

It's just that if the article is not related to the development or success of Russia, then immediately 80% of users minus the article, and this also applies to the comments of other people who express their point of view, which does not coincide with 80% of users of this site.

          You're wrong. Imagine that there was a failure in the system and the warheads flew not to the Americans, but to Moscow. I think that all ballistic missiles have a communication channel for self-liquidation. Isn't it checked during test launches?

      Well, we certainly won't get lost. But the fact that there is a systemic crisis in their army and military-industrial complex seems to be a fact. Either a truck sits down past the runway, then this very "minuteman" will be so prevented that it is only good for nonferrous metal, then the submarine will be set on fire.

      The most interesting thing is how quickly the Pentagon press and other media are echoing the statements.

        Excuse me, what do you think? hi The fact is that it’s the average one that should be considered along the length of the parabola, and not on a straight line, taking into account the acceleration section, and the issue of the trajectory for this hour is undetectable (I have tracked the specialists, but I don’t know ... request )

      Just the opposite. I'm not a rocket launcher, I think knowledgeable people will correct me, if that.
      Minimen-3 has a flight range no worse than our Poplar or Yars. Also in the region of 11000km.
      But to launch such a missile at a shorter range, as far as I know, is not easy.
      Why do you think the West was so furious when our "intercontinental" Frontiers fired at 2500-3000 km? laughing

    Earlier, American media reported that the US Armed Forces are armed with about 450 ICBM Minuteman-3

    This rocket, developed in 1972, should not be tested but checked for serviceability, which they did in order to show "such countries as Russia, China, North Korea" that their stuff is still flying up.

        the same. Any missile itself is a weapon, unlike an aircraft, which is essentially a mobile launch platform for weapons.
        For the rocket to be different there, you need to change the steps themselves together with the engines.

        Russia understands this very well, and therefore they are not engaged in the "modernization" of old nuclear missiles, but simply keep them in working order for as long as possible. Let the letter "M" in the Topol-M complex do not deceive many, in fact, Topol-M is not a modernization of the Topol missile, but a new one rocket with new high-speed performance characteristics.

    Eh ... Again srach .... We also have enough old missiles in service. But they, like the Americans, are undergoing modernization. We also have unsuccessful launches. In any case, you need to relate to the news easier. For those who wrote that the minuteman is out of date, definitely a minus. None of us know the real capabilities of missiles ... Both ours and their ... God forbid, practice will show ....

    It seems to me that a heavy mine based missile should be compared with a similar product - R36M2. Everything else will tell even Wikipedia.

    "As stated by the deputy head of the Pentagon, Robert Work," the purpose of the launch was to demonstrate the capabilities of the US nuclear potential to such countries as Russia, China, North Korea. "

    Hedgehogs looking at the demonstration, modestly smoked aside laughing

    These Minuteman-III intercontinental missiles could be thrown into the trash before they were tested. The technology of the last century was only born out of the Americans. Only developing countries would be scared.

    Yes, that's right! And it looks like there is no turning back! We are furnished from all sides with "partners" who are ready to finish us off at any moment! We have no friends left, and we will never wait for a sharp change in love from "partners". So, we will rely on our God and all Russian saints !!!

    Did they even load the weight model of the warhead during testing? Or was the fireworks fired to intimidate?

    How many do not test outdated missiles, you won’t scare Russia with this. Nigeria, for example, or Afghanistan can still be intimidated by them, but we won’t succeed if you do not advertise these weapons of the 70 of the last century.

    And how old is it?

    On a lot.
    The picture is illiterate. Why is the newspaper AIF - another question.
    Topol-M is equipped with a complex missile defense system, hence its large size, Minuteman-3 naturally is not, this is the system of the previous generation. In addition, Topol-M is a mobile system.

    I think the news is good, as well as the deployment of three B-52s in Norway. The good thing is that this is again the Minuteman-3 and again the B-52.
    From such artifacts, our air defense systems of the country still dance.
    Unlike the American missile defense from Bulav, Topol-m, Yarsov ..., and from the Tu-160 with the X-101 on board.
