    Recently Russian SRF chief said it would take 5-7 NMD to take out a single warhead Topol-M.

    Now RS-24 carries 3 Manouvering Warhead and is more powerful than Topol-M accroding to SRF
    http://pda.itar-tass.com/en/c154/174356.html

    “The combat capability of silo-based and mobile Topol-M ICBMs is several times higher than that of Topol missiles. They can pierce any of the existing and future missile defence systems. RS-24 missiles have even better performance,” Karakayev said.

    An RS-24 would need 15-21 NMD systems to take out , an exchange ratio not feasible assuming even if they achieve 100 % intercept which is unlikely.

    “The capabilities of such combat means were demonstrated to U.S. technical control means during the trials of the Yars ground-based mobile missile system and the Bulava sea-based missile system. It also concerns hypersonic warheads capable of performing altitude and trajectory maneuvers,” he told journalists.

    “The new missiles have characteristics that allow them to stay invulnerable at all sections of their flight,” Karakayev said.

    For those who are not too familiar with what RS-24 Manouvering Warhead would be like , Its an Hypersonic Boost Glide Vehical that can travel at Mach 16-18 and can manouver in trajectory and altitude.

    In simple terms its just a Glider that skims through the atmosphere at high speed and manouvering , the closest example is US HTV-2 which is a Hypersonic Glider

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypersonic_Technology_Vehicle_2

    The challenge is to maintain structural integrity while it glides at hypersonic speed and manouvers pulling many times the G that can break the structural integrity of the object ......the real breakthrough has to be in materials for building such hypersonic gliders.

    Pentagon Planning Precision Strike to Destroy 80 % of Russia Nuclear Potential

    Post  Austin on Fri Jun 28, 2013 1:58 pm

    Pentagon preparing strike with 4000 precision weapon that can disable 80 % of Russia's Nuclear Potential according to Rogozin

    Dmitry Rogozin: The main guarantee of security of the Russian Federation is a strong strategic nuclear deterrence and arms of a new generation of autonomous


    Rogozin said that that "little blood" paralyze a country like Russia, enough for a few hours, apply about 4 thousand strikes with precision weapons. During this time, you can destroy the nuclear capabilities of the country with minimal losses to the public. Resist such a threat, he said, is possible only with the help of an autonomous self new generation of weapons.

    "What can we oppose this enemy? Main security guarantee Russia a strong strategic nuclear deterrence," - said Deputy Prime Minister. However, he doubted that this is only enough to reflect current threats.

    "The American strategists first time in the last 50 years, a vision of how to defeat other nuclear" little blood ", while avoiding unacceptable damage for itself in responding to the country that was attacked - said Rogozin. - At the end of last year The Pentagon held a computer game, the results of which showed a blow to the largest and most highly developed country with the use of 3.5-4 thousand units of high-precision weapons in a few hours - and nearly destroyed the infrastructure, the state will lose the opportunity to resist. "

    According to the deputy head of the cabinet of ministers, if such a blow will be inflicted on Russia, the main targets will be the objects of nuclear deterrence. He led the expert estimated that, in the event of such an attack could be destroyed from 80 to 90 percent of Russia's nuclear potential. At that civilian casualties would be minimal. Remaining the same weapons will not be enough to retaliate against the aggressor and the leadership of the country would not do it.

    Nuclear detterance

    Post  Austin on Fri Jun 28, 2013 6:46 pm

    Russia on some technology lags behind Western countries for decades, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin


    "Today, the gap in a number of critical core technologies from leading countries of the West is in some areas up to tens of years", - said Dmitry Rogozin at the scientific conference in Moscow on Friday.

    According to him in the near future to catch up with and overtake the others, especially high-tech Western powers Russia is unlikely to work in all directions.

    "For more than ten years in the United States worked out the concept of Prompt Global Strike. That's its role is an important component of U.S. military strategy. The concept provides a striking non-nuclear weapons at any point on the planet in one hour, "- said Dmitry Rogozin.

    According to him, it is obvious that if such a blow will be inflicted on Russia, the main objectives of the strategic missile forces will become a nuclear deterrent.
    "In essence, the U.S. expert estimates, as a result of such an attack could be destroyed from 80 to 90 percent of our nuclear potential," - said Dmitry Rogozin.

    The Strategic Rocket Forces, in cooperation with the industry upgrade command centers

    MOSCOW, July 4. / ITAR-TASS /. The Strategic Rocket Forces / SMF / in cooperation with the industry plan to implement the links integrated automated command and control system / IASBU / fifth generation. This was reported by Itar-Tass spokesman for the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel Igor Yegorov.

    "Introduced IASBU is based on a digital signal transmission system of combat. This will allow for rapid retargeting of missiles, as well as provide a solution to problems of information provision and management of daily operations of the Strategic Missile Forces," - he said. Collection of reports provided by wire, radio and satellite communications, which have the necessary durability and noise immunity. Also, is bringing the orders directly to the command and control of launchers, bypassing the intermediate links, including in nuclear effects and jamming.

    "In every complex system provided triple redundancy and data communications, and troubleshooting of hardware is localized to within a model element to be replaced," - said Yegorov.

    He explained that the improvement of the management of the Strategic Missile Forces due, in particular, the need to control nuclear missiles of the new generation. Promising automated complexes are compact, low energopotreblyaemostyu, secure data transmission, resistance to external influences and reliability of operation.

    The new Strategic Missile ICBM warheads equipped with hypersonic wrote:Tested in RVSN intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) equipped with several hypersonic warheads, told Interfax-Military News Agency, citing a source in the missile industry.

    "The main difference of the new complex of the complex" Yars "with an intercontinental missile RS-24 that is equipped with a new hypersonic missile warheads that have the ability to maneuver altitude and course.Earlier this fundamentally new military equipment passed a series of successful flight tests at start-up with other missiles, "- said the official, commenting on the planned missile tests in the SRF, which in contracts for insurance start-ups received the name of the PC-26.

    He noted that the program tests missile with new combat equipment contains several test launches in 2013-2014.

    Earlier, the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakayev told reporters that "the possibility of such warheads were demonstrated technical means of verification of the U.S."

    In his words, "to solve the problem of missile defense breakthrough, the new missiles have such characteristics that suggest the invulnerability in all phases of their flight."

    "New Strategic Missile defense systems will be equipped with highly maneuverable and guided warheads and more advanced missile defense penetration aids. All this allows you to confidently predict the ability of Russian strategic nuclear forces to ensure the safety of the country at any development of the international situation, "- said S.Karakaev.

    The recent Topol-M , hypersonic warhead launch.
    from Kapustin yaar.

    The 'expert'  members  can comment on this pic .How the missile/warhead can leave such a trail in it strajectory.

    Can this be a boost phase Topol-M
    or is this a terminal phase warhead manuevring..?

    If this a "ABM Killer" then the Shear scale of it is unprecedented .. The warhead ? seems to be going crazy at such enormous speeds..Smile 



    The Strategic Rocket Forces carried out a successful test launch of a Topol/SS-25 missile on October 10, 2013. The missile was
    launched at 17:39 MSK (13:39 UTC) from Kapustin Yar to the Sary Shagan test site in Kazakhstan. According to a representative
    of the Rocket Forces, the test was used to confirm characteristics of the Topol missile, to test the systems of the Sary Shagan
    test site, and "to test new combat payload for intercontinental ballistic missiles."

    Previous test launch of a Topol missile from Kapustin Yar to Sary Shagan took place in June 2012.

    If that was the actual path taken then that is rather impressive... to do so however would have radically reduced speed of course but with the advantage that not many interceptors could match those sorts of turns unless they slowed right down too... keeping in mind that the energy game always favours the falling object because gravity provides a constant source of energy for it to continue down whereas an interceptor heading up needs energy to continue to climb and turn.

    Wind speeds at different altitudes could also effect the smoke trails to make them look more impressive, but the solid shape of the smoke lines suggest they are very recent.

    Any idea what the bolded part in news means

    Complex with the SS-26 is scheduled to put on duty in 2015

    Flight tests new solid intercontinental ballistic missile with a working title of MS-26, created on the basis of the RS-24 "Yars", completed in 2014, the mobile missile system with this rocket planned to put on combat duty in 2015, said Wednesday commander Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) Colonel General Sergey Karakayev.

    He recalled that in 2012 a new missile was launched from the Baikonur first public test at the Kura test site at a distance of more than 5.6 thousand kilometers.

    "Rocket task completed, conditional warhead landed on the Kamchatka Peninsula, and to date is currently being further bringing the (rocket) and conduct the tests that would confirm all tactical and technical characteristics" - said Karakayev.

    "After carrying out this work, which is scheduled for completion in 2014, the State Commission to make a statement of acceptance into operation. In case of success, in 2015 we plan to setting the complex on combat duty," - said the commander.

    He added that the already defined, including the division and where there will be this complex. "Karakayev noted that the RS-26 - solid-fuel ICBM warheads and advanced reentry warhead.

    According to him, the new missile will be easier "Yarsa." "We always say that we need to reduce the size (missiles). If we talk about mobile ground" Yarse "then we have to date launcher weighs more than 120 tons. This improved rocket we achieve weight characteristics to 80 tons, it will be easier, "- said the commander.

    @Austin

    Russia seems to adopt by 2016 a lighter version of Yars missile called SS-26 (120-80 ton) but SS-26 still has more than 5500km defined by INF 1987 treaty. 

    Also it seems that new vehicle we saw on Belarus military parade was design exactly for that missile. 

    Look at the posts from Pavel Podvig - he is going nuts and seems to have great deal of trouble comprehending scope and complexity of work being done  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy 

    Some new missile system to be deployed in Dombarovskiy

    It's difficult to keep track of all kind of new ICBMs that Russia is planning to deploy - in addition to the Topol-M/RS-24 Yars deployment that is underway, Russia plans to introduce a [/size]new road mobile missile, RS-26, in 2015[size="2"] and a new "heavy" ICBM, Sarmat, some time around 2020. As if this is not enough, there is apparently one more system that Russia is working on.


    More news about RS-26 missile


    Karakayev was quoted as saying that in 2014 his service will complete tests of the "new solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile (working designation RS-26) that has been created on the basis of RS-24 Yars". The new missile is expected to enter service in 2015. The missile will be road-mobile and will carry multiple warheads


    And now this. Rail ICBM are making their comeback.  thumbsup

    Rail-mobile ICBMs are likely to make a comeback



    and this is a bit older Pavel article which made me rolling on the floor 

    Too many missiles - Rubezh, Avangard, and Yars-M


    Smart decision and I hope they can adopt SS-19 for the same purpose too.

    From your link:

    "He explained that a rocket launched to test promising warheads of intercontinental ballistic missiles. "

    "Thus it is highly survivable due to its maneuverability, stealth and small-time training missiles for launch."

    It could be that they are testing new maneuverable warheads.

    The earth is round. Draw a line between two points and that line can either be a line curved around the earth the shortest distance between the two points or you can continue that line completely around the world between the two points. One is shorter than the other but once the warheads are in orbit then range is no longer an issue.

    In other words instead of firing missiles over the north pole from Russia to the US, you can fire them south on the opposite trajectory over the south pole and up over south and central america to attack north america from the south... where no long range radar cover...

    A bit like the FOB system... or fractional orbital bombardment system... put a bomb in orbit... it will go around every 90 minutes... when it approaches the target area fire a rocket to decellerate the weapon out of orbit to fall on the target.

    For the enemy that bomb might have been up for years or days and disguised as a "failed" satellite. the only warning they will likely get is when it reenters so no time to do anything at all to stop it...

    The first weapon might be a 20MT bomb to detonate in the upper atmosphere over canada to blind all the radar and block all radio communcation over the northern american land mass for an hour or two to hide a full nuclear strike...

    The little problem is space based nuclear weapons are banned and space launch is monitored to a certain degree of the payload mass, not that this couldn't be still done but makes it much harder to deploy nuclear weapons in space.

    But this method is the only promising method to stay on the side of not nuked but polluded "winners" rather than die immidiatley vaporized.
