Two "Clubs" were successfully launched from the cruiser "Yuri Dolgoruky"

On Friday, the Yury Dolgoruky nuclear submarine under the flight test program carried out the final launch of the Bulava missiles this year. The launch of a pair of rockets conducted from the waters of the White Sea. RIA "News"reports that Colonel Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, reported on this.

“The launch from the White Sea area was made from a submerged position on the Kura (Kamchatka) test site. The flight proceeded normally. The combat units arrived at the test site at a fixed time. This was fixed by means of objective control,” reported Konashenkov.

According to the colonel, the main feature of the launch was the launching of salvo firing with a pair of missiles from the carrier — the fourth-generation head launch vehicle of the Borey project (APC Yury Dolgoruky).

The crew of the submarine under the command of Vladimir Shirin, captain of the first rank, for the fourth time in the last 6 months, successfully carried out test launches of the Bulava ballistic missiles. "The demonstration of excellent combat skills by the crew has already become traditional," said a spokesman for the Ministry of Defense.

State tests of sea-based ballistic missiles "Bulava" were launched in 2004. Of the 18 tests carried out as part of the test program, 11 launches were considered successful. For testing the most successful was the current year. All four launches made with "Yuri Dolgoruky" were successful.

Prior to this, the launches were carried out from the board of the heavy rocket submarine of strategic purpose “Dmitry Donskoy”, the 941 project of the UM “Shark” modernized for this project.

The Ministry of Defense of Russia has stated several times that a positive result of the salvo launch will be decisive for adopting both the Yury Dolgoruky and the Bulava. According to the standards of flight test design procedures for rocket complexes of this type, salvo launch is decisive and final.

        And why - "AT LEAST", Pavel V? In my opinion, both Yars and Liners and S-400 have been sorted out ... In general, the year turned out to be a fruitful one and the winter crops were not bad - the dryers are sprouting, Mi, money for the modernization and construction of the plant for the S-400 and 500 went ... Here, we launched our own production facilities for the production of helicopter engines and small engines for missiles! I hope that next year will give an equally high harvest, if we ourselves do not weed out the growth with our own hands, following the lead of the Kasparovs, Nemtsovs, Navalny, and so on ... sang along with the podpindos!

      Rocket "Sineva".
      The missile is a modification of the complex R-29RM (RSM-54), adopted into service in 1986. In 1996, the mass production of these complexes was discontinued, but in 1999-2000 it was again resumed after experimental design work on the modernization of products. The resumption of production was due to the expiration of the service life (10 years) of the R-39 missiles in service and with problems in the development of new Bark complexes, and subsequently Bulava.
      In 1999, work began on a new modification of missiles, which received the new designation R-29RMU2 “Sineva”, while retaining the contractual “RSM-54”.
      In the new modification, the size of the steps has slightly changed, the resistance to the effects of an electromagnetic pulse has been increased, a new set of missile defense systems and a satellite navigation system have been installed. The control system was implemented on the new Malachite-3 computer complex.
      In 2004, flight tests of the rocket and work on modern high-speed medium-class warheads of the OKR "Station" and "Station-2" were completed, after which their deployment on the Sineva project began. In accordance with contractual obligations, backup equipment (4BB middle class) has become the main equipment of missiles. The new unit is not inferior to the W-88 Trident II warhead (475 kT). During the modernization, due to the reduction in the weight of the warhead, an additional range resource was obtained and electronic warfare equipment was introduced. Also, due to the modernization of control systems, such an important indicator as KVO was doubled. On July 9, 2007, Russian President Vladimir V. Putin signed a decree on the adoption of a missile for arming the Navy.
      The carriers of the R-29RMU2 Sineva missiles are project 667BDRM Dolphin nuclear submarines. Re-equipment to the D-9RMU2 complex is carried out during an average repair. In total, the modernized complex was installed on 5 of 7 nuclear submarines of this project, 4 of them are in operation, 1 is under repair.

      Rocket "Liner".
      R-29RMU2.1 “Liner” - a Russian ballistic missile for deployment in submarines. Designed by OJSC “GRTS Makeeva” and manufactured by OJSC “Krasnoyarsk Machine-Building Plant”. It is a modernization of the Sineva missile with new capabilities to overcome missile defense, as well as the ability to combine combat load.
      Number of steps 3
      Xnumx length m
      Diameter 1,9 m
      Starting weight 40 tons
      Maximum range from 8300 to 11000 km
      Type of head part RGCh IN, nuclear
      The number of warheads 8-10 units of low power with a PCB PRO or 4 medium power with a PCB PRO
      Basis 667BDRM "Dolphin"
      The first launch was made on May 20, 2011 at 18 o’clock. 50 minutes Moscow time, according to the program of state flight tests (ROC “Liner”) from the strategic nuclear submarine of the Northern Fleet “Yekaterinburg” with the “Liner” intercontinental ballistic missile from the Barents Sea at the Kura combat training ground located on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The start-up was recognized as successful.
      The second launch was carried out on September 29, 2011, according to the State Flight Test Program (ROC "Liner") from the Tula strategic nuclear submarine of the Tula intercontinental ballistic missile from the Barents Sea at the Kura combat training ground located on the peninsula Kamchatka The start-up was recognized as successful.
      In October 2011, the missile tests were recognized as completed successfully and the missile was approved for serial production and operation and recommended for adoption. It is planned to adopt the Liner missile system into service with the Northern Fleet.

      Rocket "Bulava".
      P-30 “Bulava-30” (URAF index of the Navy - 3M30, START code - RSM-56, according to the classification of the US and NATO Defense Forces - SS-NX-30; “Bulava-M”, “Bulava-47”) - Russian solid fuel A ballistic missile of the D-30 complex for deployment on Project 955 submarines. The development of the missile has been carried out since 1998 by the Moscow Institute of Heat Engineering, which developed the Topol-M ground-based missile in 1989-1997.
      The decision in favor of developing the Bulava rocket was made in 1998 by the newly appointed Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Kuroyedov after three unsuccessful trials of the Bark strategic weapon complex, which was completed by more than 70%.
      To date, 18 Bulava test launches have been made, ten of them are recognized as successful, and two more (seventh and eighth) are partially successful. The last missile launch took place on December 23, 2011.
      After successful tests on June 29, 2007 a decision was made to mass-produce the most developed components and components of the rocket.
      As of December 2008, the question of the degree of unification with Topol-M was highlighted, as as a result of various modifications and refinements during pilot tests, the number of common parts is steadily decreasing.
      During the sixteenth launch on August 27, 2011, when launching at maximum range, the Bulava rocket flew 9100 km, exceeding the declared design range of 8000 km.
      Starting weight 36,8 tons.
      Launch container length 12,1 m
      container diameter 2,1 m,
      the diameter of the first stage is 2,0 m.
      The rocket is three-stage, according to the first two steps, all sources claim that they are solid fuel. The mass of the first stage engine is 18,6 tons, the length is 3,8 m, the data of the second stage were not reported. There are two opinions on the third stage: the solid fuel stage and the liquid stage. In favor of the version of the liquid third stage, there are arguments about the possibility of maneuvering in the final sections of the flight path.
      The Bulava is capable of carrying 10 individual guidance nuclear blocks with the ability to maneuver in yaw and pitch. The total cast weight is 1150 kg.
      It is reported that there is a system for overcoming the enemy’s missile defense.
      Information about the nuclear blocks of the Bulava rocket is contradictory. According to some reports, the principle of their breeding has changed. Previously, a ballistic missile brought blocks into the target area and “scattered” them above it. On the Bulava rocket, the principle of the "grape cluster" was applied.
      A missile is created as a ship missile system, unified for two types of strategic missile submarine cruisers:
      the modernized project 941UM “Shark”: “Dmitry Donskoy” (1 missile mine);
      Project 955 Borey: Yuri Dolgoruky, Alexander Nevsky (laid down in 2004) and Vladimir Monomakh (project 955 A, laid down in 2006). In total, until 2017 it is planned to build eight submarines of project 955 and 955 “A”. The first two nuclear submarines will carry 16 Bulava-type solid-propellant missiles with a multiple warhead, the next (starting with Vladimir Monomakh) - 20 missiles each.
  15. 916-th
    916-th 24 December 2011 19: 37
    The main criticism of the Bulava rocket is caused by modest indicators of maximum range and casting weight (respectively 8000 (9300 - in 16 launch) km and 1150 kg).

    However, according to the general designer of Topol and Bulava, Yuri Solomonov, a rather serious decrease in the payload of the rocket is associated with its higher survivability: resistance to the damaging factors of a nuclear explosion and laser weapons, low active area and its short duration. According to his statement, “both Topol-M and Bulava have an active area 3-4 times less than domestic missiles, and 1,5-2 times less than American, French, and Chinese.”

    As for the missile’s flight range, a range of 8000 km is enough to destroy almost anywhere in the United States (with the exception of Florida and southern California) or anywhere in China even when launched from the pier. From areas of combat patrol, a missile can hit any point on the territory of these states. It should be noted that during the 16th launch the missile established a range of 9 km.

    It should also be noted that solid-propellant launch vehicles, which include Bulava, are somewhat inferior to liquid-propellant rockets in terms of their dynamic characteristics (which, in particular, is associated with a reduction in thrown weight), significantly surpass them in the manufacturability of storage and operation.

      Also thought so until recently. But the further, the more I see how the destruction of science-intensive sectors of the economy, the education system, the degeneration of the nation continues. At every step from traffic cops to the government, theft, tyranny and wrecking. Moreover, this is a well-built system - everyone unfastens the share of his thieves' production up the pyramid up to Nurgaliyev, Putin, etc. Normal people are eliminated when they are hired; it’s impossible to enter the civil service without a bribe or close ties. According to Gazprom TNT, in prime time every day youth is encouraged (Univer, etc.) that all the girls should give the first met Armenian-Mikaelian, and being a moron-Kuzey is simply cute and funny. According to state ORT, at the same time there is an even greater sloppiness.
      And what is it, 2 missiles were launched and the prototype of the plane flies? And aren’t we facing our eyes blind before the elections before these unconditionally positive, but by no means systemic events?

    For slan personally. Video surveillance systems for traffic violations are being installed. Dress fines are even cops. I live in an area where there is a lot of "non-Russian" population. The police do not even touch the money during the search. Putting things in order, for a period of 11 years after such a collapse, which was in the mid-90s is not so easy. Considering that around the same Putin, there were initially 95-98 percent of Yeltsin-Gorbachev-Pindos henchmen and whom it is simply not possible to remove immediately and it was not just necessary to restore the country, but to go against a strong stream of thieves, peddlers who were keeping the Pindos. For some reason, no one takes this into account. slan to put you the director of an enterprise where theft, bribery, nepotism and corruption, how quickly you alone or with several like-minded people put things in order.

          First, you need to define the term "submarine buoyancy reserve". This link will allow you to clarify the physical and geometric meaning:


          Next - I suppose you wanted to ask "How will the ship systems behave when firing a full missile salvo at depth?" If I remember correctly, this kind of shooting is called "Behemoth". The event is complex, costly and dangerous. The only time such shooting was carried out was on August 6, 1991 from the SSBN of pr.667BDRM "Novomosskovsk", under the command of Captain 2nd Rank Sergei Yegorov.

          The SSBN test program does not include the development of such firing, and the operation of the leveling, trim system, submarine possession system at depth and others like them is checked separately.

    To check the operation of the automatic system of keeping the depth, it is enough and 2-rocket salvo. Plus there is the experience of the second "Begemot". The missiles do not start simultaneously, but with an interval.

    Well done! All so I do not understand why there are two types of missiles with approximately the same characteristics. As I understand it, "Bulava" is solid fuel, "Liner" is on liquid fuel? If so, then it's understandable. I would like to say, nevertheless, that the United States managed to outwit Russia when signing the SALT-3 treaty and retain all the Trident submarines, while Russia destroyed many. Now you need to restore everything!

    Who cares - the launch was carried out on the move, with a trim on the nose, the rest of the missiles were also "cold" successfully launched!
