        Now there will be even more money to ask Congress, but in general it is necessary to do our job and not pay attention to their cries.

      About "was not found" - so ours thought, that's all. This is not a real test of the effectiveness of "lowering radar signature", just testing a missile with some new "gadgets" on its own territory, on its own. Gd knows what the radar scanners will actually be in the missile defense chain in Europe. The very fact that such a chain is being built today is already a failure. Although it is not clear what prevents missiles from being launched across the United States in the other direction - through the North Pole, for example. You can't deploy any missile defense there.

        Sarmat will fly like that. And with incomplete loading and through the south. And for the Status-6 missile defense does not pose any danger.

        You’ll not deploy any missile defense systems there
        Actually, everything intended by the SGA will fly there and across the Pacific Ocean, much shorter, but in Alaska, because it is also a powerful missile defense + missile defense ships.
        It is necessary to shoot down at the initial stage of the trajectory, and for this you need to be as close as possible to the launch sites. It is the Iskanders with calibers that cause "righteous" anger in partners.
        And on the approach, when the warheads go on target, and even maneuvering - roulette is not in favor of the defenders .....

          Theoretically (and practically) EMs with SM-3 may already be burning (or drowning) by the time our ICBMs enter the zone of their destruction.

              I agree, not easy. But the question is, in fact, about the Third World War, since ICBMs through the Arctic - in the States. The last (generally last) task. This is a completely different dimension or something .. What kind of rambo is there .. Many serve their whole lives to fulfill this task once.

    high power cruise missile launch


    Can anyone explain the difference between high power CDs and medium and low power CRs?

      What is the difference between high-power Raman and medium and low-power Raman?

      It is appropriate to talk about CHARGES and their power.
      Classification of charges by power
      Modern:
       up to 1 kt - ultra small;
       1 - 10 ct - small;
       10 - 100 ct - average;
       100-1000 ct - large;
       over 1 MT - super large.
      Classification given in the 1973 Military Encyclopedia:
       up to 15 ct - small caliber;
       15 - 100 ct - medium caliber;
       100-500 ct - large caliber;
       over 500 kt - super-large caliber.

      "Power" (payload output) is usually referred to as ICBMs / launch vehicles. But even there, a classification is used according to the classes of carriers: light, medium, heavy, super-heavy launch vehicles. (family "Angara").
      So, there is an incorrect expression of a journalist.

      nothing. There is neither one nor the other.
      Long Range CR (CRBD)
      and
      small.
      And "power" is to charge.

      That's why they did not notice that it was not a radar.

    Not only.
    The press reported that with an increased range (2000 km).
    Here the joy will now seize the geyropu!

    The Iskander-K complex does not exist in nature. There is only Iskander-M, which carries both BR and KR. Iskander-K is the speculation of journalists

    Well, the press can say anything. With a range of 2000 km, or 5000. They do not care what to write. At least the rocket (and this is most likely the 929th) is still being tested and it was not fired at its maximum range.

    Ummm ... Maybe the launch was a training, training or test one? From the phrase "combat launch" as it blows a flight or to the barmaley in Syria, or to sworn partners in the West.
