    During recent meetings of Putin drew attention to the foreign projects missile systems that could pose a threat to Russian security. According to the Russian president, the true purpose of these projects implemented US and its allies is no defense against nuclear attack, and the achievement of global military supremacy. Such a violation of the balance of power is very dangerous, because of what Russia will be forced to respond.

    Modernization of the Strategic Missile Forces


    According to the president, Russia will strengthen its strategic nuclear forces. It is planned to build a missile defense system, but for now the main task is to work on the shock systems that will be able to overcome any potential enemy defenses.

    There is an ongoing series production and supply of troops in the latest missile systems. Putin once again said that during 2015 the Strategic Missile Forces must obtain four regiments with the most modern missiles. This information was repeatedly voiced earlier by various officials, and now once again received confirmation. The president did not specify the type of new facilities, but most likely it was a system RS-24 "yars". Available information on the structure of the missile forces suggest that in the current year they will receive 36 new complexes.

    Progress has been made in the establishment of new missile systems, which in the future will replace the existing in-service equipment. The closest to the adoption intercontinental ballistic missile RS-26 "Boundary". She is a further development of the product family "Topol" / "yars" and has similar goals. Previously it stated that the complex "Boundary" in the distant future will replace the existing missiles "Topol-M" and the "yars". However, within the next few years, all three types of complexes, may be used in parallel.

    Drafting of the RS-26 was launched about ten years ago at the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology. The existence of long-term project was known only to a few years later, when he reached the stage of construction of prototypes and testing. The first launch of an experimental rocket in September 2011 and ended in failure (according to other sources, they were successful throwing trials). Also in 2011 there was an alternative designation of the project, which is why different sources of complex PC-26 may be cited as the "Abroad" and "avant-garde".

    There are currently performed several test launches. Almost all starts, except the first, successfully completed the defeat of the conditional goal. In March 2015 it hosted another successful launch, after which it was decided to launch serial production of missiles, followed by the deployment of the troops.

    In 2014 and 2015 officials have repeatedly raised the topic timing of "Limit" on the arms. For example, last year argued that the missiles entered service in 2015. In the spring of this year, the Strategic Missile Forces Commander Col. Gen. Sergei Karakayev said that the complex will be commissioned in late 2015, and mass production will start within the first months of 2016.

    The project MS-26 "Boundary" entered the final stage. As soon as the new system will be put into service the Strategic Missile Forces, and over the next few months, the army received the first production missiles. By the end of next year on duty to intercede first compound, armed with new systems. So now the project "Border" can be considered successfully completed. Nomenclature RVSN added a new type of missile with improved characteristics.

    The missile RS-26 "Boundary" in the distant future would replace the system "Topol" and "yars". In the nearest future it is planned to gradually replace ICBM heavy class, such as the P-36M, etc., which is currently being drafted missile RS-28, "Sarmat". By now it becomes aware of some features of this promising project, but most of the information is still not subject to disclosure.

    Creating a project "Sarmat" was launched at the end of the last decade. The lead developer became State Rocket Center. Makeyev. In addition, the project employed some other enterprises, in particular, Reutov Machine-Building NPO. The aim of the project is the creation of a heavy liquid ICBM, which will replace the Strategic Missile Forces samples available in its class.

    The exact requirements for the missile remain unknown, though echoed some sample information. For example, the former chief of staff of the Strategic Missile Forces commander and consultant Missile Forces Viktor Yesin mentioned that the throw-weight of the new missile will reach 5 tons. The flight range is not disclosed. At the same time Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov last year noted that the prospective ICBMs able to fly over the North or South Pole.

    In the late spring of last year Y. Borisov also said that all the work on the project "Sarmat" goes according to schedule. In the summer of 2015 there were reports according to which is currently under the third phase of development work. At the same time he mentioned that the prospective missile flight tests will begin next year.

    Previously available information on the timing of construction of the first prototype of the product PC-28. According to Tass, the first prototype of the rocket must be built by the middle of autumn. In the future it will be used in the first trial throwing in which to check the work of the launcher and its systems. It was also reported that as of the end of June the assembly of the prototype is completed by 60%.

    At the moment, we can assume that the test missile RS-28, "Sarmat" will start next year, after which time it will take to carry out all necessary checks and modifications. As a result, prospective ICBMs able to go to the series and went on duty a few years. It has repeatedly argued that the range of "Sarmat" will go into operation by the end of the decade - in 2018-20, respectively. Given the available information on the current status of the project timeframe look real.

    Currently in service with the Strategic Missile Forces are composed of several types of facilities, including developed several decades ago in the Soviet Union. In recent years carried out a program of modernization of weapons RVSN, which aims to create and formulation of the duty of new missile complexes. The result of the current work should be complete rejection of the use of legacy systems with the transition to new ones.

    Several years ago, to finalize the draft RS-24 "yars", after which the Strategic Missile Forces began receiving a new type of rocket. The following year, the troops will receive the first batch of systems "Boundary". By the end of the decade arsenal of missile troops replenish complex "Sarmat". Thus, to the 2020-22 base year arms Strategic Missile Forces will be complex created for the last 10-15 years, which will positively affect the combat capability of the Strategic Missile Forces and strategic security.

    No information.  Reduce the boost phase time.   The faster the boost phase the closer the ABM missiles have to be.   So NATO will
    have to deploy its ABM "shield" inside Russia itself.

    I wonder if they will have boosters on ICBMs.   Right now all of them are stacked stages.   Parallelizing the fuel burn during the boost
    phase achieves the time reduction.   They won't achieve the shell in gun efficiency of total burn (of powder) in a fraction of a second,
    but they can get the desired result.   Russia's large territory helps.   An interesting historical feature of Russia, its land mass was always
    a pain for invaders.

    You should know it and that was discussed before. The US ABM shields in eastern europe are not there to deal with ICBM's. That is something that is not even in their magnitude to achieve not to mention that majority of ICBM's are flying over north pole and only Canada is a country that would be in the trajectory to intercept them, but they do not have such a technology for such velocities and altitudes.

    The ABM shields in europe of the US are there to deal with russian tactical nukes, IRBM and air/navy launched tactical nukes, that is why US has deployed its tactical nukes in several european countries such as Germany, Turkey, Netherland, Italy and Belgia, not to mention the already existing tactical nukes of France and UK. They know and that is beyond doubt that russia will not and never use ICBM's or any strategic WMD's to annihilate anyone due M.A.D. and will be hand bound to retaliate in tactical exchange which the US plans which can be read from their actions of ABM shield construction, more tactical nukes deployment to germany, NATO hardcore propaganda of the "Russians are coming!" to get the population ready for war rhetoric. The US will be untouched by those nukes, europe however will lose almost everything, entire decapitation.


    AS far im aware. US ABM shield is there not to intercept any nuke.. could do it in midcourse but not exactly for that. The US ABM Shield main objective is for a first nuclear attack to decapitate RUssian leadership and its important military and economical facilities .and provoke a major civil war through nukes on the surviving people . So the ABM "shield" will be for blocking Russian defenses on NATO nuclear attacks. So NATO fire a nuke , Russia fire an S-500 to intercept it,the ABM shield intercept then is used to intercept the S-500 so the NATO missile can enter in Russia. Is like Footbal. The ABM shield can be used to block Russian defenses from intercepting
    their nukes.

    But the ABM shield can also be used for purely offensive attack . The missiles could be armed with nuclear warheads supposedly "to intercept ballistic missiles" but in reality is not to intercept anything but to attack Russia. Those "ABM Shield for example" its "interceptor missiles" could be nothing more than Trident 2/3 missiles deployed in ground near Russia. And US can deploy hundreds of Trident missiles on Land near Russia ,and each one with hundreds of decoys to overwhelm Russian defenses. It will be impossible to defend for Russia or anyone an attack of Hundreds of nuclear ballistics missiles and each one with hundreds of decoys. So 100 missiles with 100 decoys each ,means Russian defenses will need to intercept 10,000 targets that ll will look like missiles on radars but most will be decoys ,with conventional weapons or nuclear warheads.

    The ABM can also used to confuse Russian defenses ,before an attack.. launching thousands of decoys over the trajectory of any NATO missile. There have to be a reason why US have a military warehouse in Norway where they store Abraham tanks.. Norway ,yes the country at russian borders. is not for a tanks movie.. but after a total major nuclear attack on Russia and invasion will follow to take moscow quickly before Russia recovers. Don't understimate the evilness of the west. They Billionaire Elite in the west do NOT care about civilians or middle class. and some of them will be ready to sacrifice millions of american lives if in the end they destroy Russia.

    This is why Putin is worried about Americans militarization of its borders..Because yes Russia have nukes but the west is full of crazy people ,that have bunkers and have mansions in small islands that will not face any destruction .that consider acceptable losing 1/3 of US population if in the end they win.

    This means that for Russia having nuclear deterrence is not enough. THey need real way to stop NATO militarization of its borders and deployment of nukes.


    What i will do if Russia see US continues its hostilities and continue financing terror ,and shutding down Russian civilian Airplanes or attempts on Putin life, and continues militarization of europe and deploying nuclear weapons near Russia.  is to leave all weapons international agreements and start a weapon race. Build for example something like 100,000 to 300,000 kaliber cruise missiles with 5,000km to 10,000km range and build them with the easy option to arm them with nuclear warheads if needed.  and have ready all setup in hidden land based launchers..with the capability to launch them all at same time. And when Russia feel a nuclear war will happen and only force can solve it.. then launch enough missiles to decapitate
    the western leadership and their military facilities and economic zones.  So if for example Russia needs to fight Turkey.. and know it can avoid the war.. Russia can launch thousands of Cruise missiles at them (at the same time) and hit the 1,000 to 3,000 important targets in that country withing half an hour and competely decapitate that nation military and leadership in less than one hour. that by the time they discover they are at war.. they will have no plane or tank left or military base standing.

    Then deploy many thousands of nuclear missiles in CUba with nuclear warheads underground and others and build many merchant ships that could fire thousands of cruise missiles . and more importantly Russia needs to disperse on its territory all their important military installations if possible all underground and have all its borders fully covered with hundreds of tanks in case of an invasion.

    in Short US/NATO strategy is a first nuclear decapitation strike without warning and followed by
    a quick fast NATO invasion on Russia possibly from Norway or baltics or now ukraine. the confusion of so many nuclear attacks and being caught by surprise will make very hard to coordinate an offensive if a rain of nukes continues falling in Russia most important cities.
    Russia objectives should be similar to get rid of US government in a first surprise strike if they
    discover through intelligence that a nuclear attacked will happen and there is no way to stop it with politics. and that they need to strike first for maximum possible opportunity to stop the war before it began.

    According to the official statement, the purpose of the launch was "to test new combat payload for future ICBMs.

    Any insight guys about the new payload? Thanks.

    Very true as for assumptions wrt peace loving exceptional nation unfortunately such solution has 2 painful disadvantages:

    a) time of flight - measured in hours in time when 10mins matters (unless preemptive stealh strike)

    b) The cost component of such amount of cruise missiles would kill Russian economy making Russia down without any war.


    IMHO the only way is an asymmetric response what Russia actually is doing. Tsunami torpedoes, missile trains Iskanders is first part, IMHO next will be sea-bed and/or airborne launched missiles probably space nukes and hypersonic, non ballistic, delivery vehicles.

    Tsunami torpedoes seem to be exceptional price/value tool to keep US at bay - all navy bases large industrial cities are "taken care off". UK, Hawaii, Benelux or Norway is no exception here. Obviously a harbored merchant ship with 200 nuked klubs near Nicaragua Canal does not hurt. Russia Smile

    with all the dumb fkery the US and NATO are doing to destroy Russia both internally and externally, Russia should take a more tougher response! maybe pull out from the treaty that prohibits nuke weapons in space and start reviving FOBS weapons, make life more horrifying for NATO that any more stupid move from them will lead to global extinction! I hate how events are unfolding now, Russia should really work on crashing the US economy, I dont care what scaremongers say about the severe global consequences of a bankrupt USA, just make it happen and deal with the consequences when the monster is gone.

    I am also fan of of FOBS as good way to have lever against NATO homeland countries. Not against military but to make sure all Europe will be radioactive desert if bandits attack Russia.

    As you see in my signature IMHO best opportunity to keep US at bay is to have nukes powerful enough to trigger Yellowstone super-volcano. Below map of destruction zone. USA really screwed then...

    Actually for such event to happen you would need to place nuclear warhead couple hundred m under the surface of Yellowstone and then to detonate it.

    Well I presume that neither you nor myself are geologists and nuclear physicists. It is not my idea I just am fan of it if possible make such trigger if would create devastation zones on more then 50% of US. Rest traditional nukes and tsunamis.

    Quite cost effective solution in case of Russia´s cost of arms race.

    Russian Strategic Missile Force new control system to retarget missiles instantly — source
    Military & Defense
    December 17, 14:45 UTC+3
    The system will being put into operation starting next year

    MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. A new automated system of the Russian Strategic Missile Force’s combat control will help retarget intercontinental ballistic missiles ‘instantly’ before their launch, a source in Russia’s General Staff told TASS on Thursday.

    Strategic Missile Force Commander Sergey Karakayev said on Wednesday the troops had received a new combat control system to promptly retarget missiles. The system will start to be put into operation from next year, he added.

    "The talk is about retargeting Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles immediately before their launch when a need arises suddenly to deliver a strike against other unplanned targets due to a sharp change in the situation. In this case, the new control system will enter new target coordinates into a missile in a remote control mode instantly to destroy the targets," the source said.

    If a missile has been launched, it can’t be retargeted, the source said. Today not a single nuclear power has such technology, the source added.

    Of course no nuclear power wants that capability... imagine launching all your missiles and find your enemies have cracked your codes and command all of your own missiles to hit your own cities... not good.

    Strategic Missile Forces will complete the modernization of the radar at the Sary-Shagan in 2016

    On the test site we put all the necessary equipment, carried out installation and commissioning works

    MOSCOW, January 2. / TASS /. Upgrade test radar "Neman-P" at the Sary-Shagan in Kazakhstan will be completed in 2016, said the spokesman of the Defense Ministry of the Strategic Missile Forces, Major Dmitry Andreev.
    According to him, the landfill have put all the necessary equipment are ongoing installation and commissioning work.
    "In 2016, completed the modernization of the experimental test radar" Neman-P ", aimed at increasing information capabilities and increased lines of work stations, life extension and improvement of its operational reliability," - said Andreev.
    Earlier, the Strategic Missile Forces plan to complete the modernization of the radar station in 2016.
    From 1981 to 1991, "Neman-R" participated in measurements at more than 300 launches of ballistic missiles in the framework of the test warheads and systems to overcome air defense, including missile systems, "Pioneer" and "Topol". In addition, the station has been involved in the testing of the national missile defense system A-135.

    Dmitry Rogozin: “The United States can destroy a few hours up to 90% of our nuclear capability“


    http://kalevholland.planet.ee/russia-will-lose-the-war-for-america-360-minutes

    “For more than a decade in the United States worked out the concept of Prompt Global Strike. It provides striking non-nuclear weapons at any point on the planet in one hour, “- Rogozin said. “According to a war game conducted by the Pentagon at the end of last year, with the help of 3.5-4 thousand. Units of US precision weapons can destroy 6 hours basic infrastructure facilities of the enemy and prevent him to resist,” – he added.

    He is clearly incorrect and trying to scare for more funding (very common tactic).  The anti ballistic threat from US is a joke since you yourself posted the documents on the success rates and they were clearly pathetic, even against old Scud missiles.  Could it eliminate 90% of Russia's ICBM's?  No.  Could it remove 30%?  No.  Most ICBM's operate in a field greater than what these anti ballistic missile systems can do.  They are decent against Scuds and maybe some later variants, but clearly not against a Topol-M.

    Theoretically, if it could remove 90% of Russia's ICBM's, the remaining 10% would cause so much damage and havoc that no one is stupid enough to try it anyway.

    Would be helpful if the owner of that site (which is questionable at best) would at least provide a link.  I do when I reference nearly anything.

    Edit: So Rogozin is stating what US experts think. Problem is, all of us are aware of the high failure rates. Just look at Saudi Arabia and its conflict with Tunisia. How many rockets bypassed the SM-3 system and hit their intended targets?

    Point of the matter is that these ABM systems are greatly overblown. But after re-reading the article, he is clearly pushing an agenda which is evident by his demands to communicate with the military industrial commission on getting joint work down with Universities. I think his wish came true as I have read a week or so ago about work on MiC with universities and the Russian "DARPA".

    Strategic missile forces

    He is probably correct, given 6 hours the US and the west could probably hit all of Russias strategic missile/weapon forces and damage it to the point where it was ineffective... but that is assuming that the Russians sit back and do nothing.

    What he is not saying is that the Russians are now producing large numbers of similar conventionally armed cruise missiles that can hit point targets all over NATO and wreak comparable if not more damage to NATO forces in europe.

    A conventional strike on Russias ICBMs would lead to those ICBM fields being defended by aircraft and missiles and also the full launch of those ICBMs... whether the US systems hit the ICBM field or not is irrelevant as those silos would be empty by the time the western munitions arrived and the west would be minutes from obliteration.

    There is no chance WWIII will be a conventional head strike that takes out the Russians before they can retaliate.

    Russia developing new ICBMs capable of overcoming US missile shield

    Russia developing new ICBMs capable of overcoming US missile shield

    According to the official, threats from the US missile defense system in Europe do not critically reduce combat capabilities of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces.

    Russia is developing new intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) with special attention paid to their ability to penetrate the US missile shield, Russia’s Strategic Missile Force (SMF) Commander Sergey Karakayev said on Tuesday.

    Russia is currently carrying out active work on improving its means of overcoming the missile shield, he said.

    "This is conditioned by the fact that the United States is not stopping after what it has achieved and continues improving its missile defense system, including the deployment of its elements in Europe. That is why, special attention in the development of new missile complexes is paid to the issue of overcoming the missile shield," Karakayev said.

    Capabilities of Russian ballistic missiles increase "by reducing ICBM’s acceleration section, introducing new types of warheads with the flight path that is difficult to predict and new means of overcoming the missile defense system," Karakayev went on. Russian missiles are also capable of delivering warheads via energy optimal trajectory and of striking from multiple directions, "which forces the opposing side to ensure perimeter missile defense," he concluded.

    "This is achieved both through the ICBM’s shorter acceleration phase and new types of warheads with a hard-to-predict flight trajectory and new means of overcoming the missile shield," the commander said.

    According to the official, threats from the US missile defense system in Europe do not critically reduce combat capabilities of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces because Russian missiles are constantly upgraded.

    "Threats from the European segment of missile defense system for SMF are limited and do not critically reduce combat capabilities of SMF," Karakayev said.

    Strategic Missile Forces to have equal number of mobile, stationary ICBM launchers by 2021


    Kartakayev said that Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces will have an equal number of stationary and mobile ground ICBM launchers by 2021.
    "Considering the ratios of stationary and mobile groupings of the Strategic Missile Forces, it can be noted that at the turn of 2021, the quantitative indicators of these groupings will come to equal each other. However, the capabilities of the stationary grouping will continue to be higher due to the availability of heavy missiles," the commander said.


    Yars missile systems to make half of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces

    The official has also noted that the Yars missile systems will make up half of the total effective combat strength of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces by 2021.

    "By late 2021, the Yars missile system will make up about half of the SMF effective combat strength," he said.
    According to him, practically all the mobile land-based missile divisions will be rearmed with this system, and the Tatishchevo (partly) and Kozelsk missile divisions will get the silo-based version of the Yars system.

    "The Yars missile system will form the basis of the forces’ mobile grouping. The SMF rearming with this system will offset the forces’ effective combat strength cuts at the turn of 2021 due to the forced decommissioning of the Topol mobile ground missile system the operating life of which will expire by the time, he said.

    According to him, a large number of combat equipment versions of the new missile systems Yars in conjunction with modern antimissile defense suppression systems installed on them will considerably improve capabilities of the advanced mobile grouping.

    Previously, Strategic Missile Force commander’s aide, Colonel General Viktor Yesin said that it is planned to fully equip all missile divisions of the Strategic Missile Forces with the Yars and Yars-M mobile ground missile systems with the RS-26 missile in 2021.

    The RS-24 Yars is Russia’s new intercontinental ballistic missile. It is an improved version of the previous Topol-M. It is known in the West as SS-29. It uses the same 16x16 wheeled chassis as the Topol-M. Externally it looks similar. However it carries an improved, heavier missile.

    The Yars was developed both as a road-mobile and silo-based system, that would use the same missile. It was first tested in 2007 and was adopted by the Russian Strategic Missile Forces in 2010.

    No new major test sites



    Karakayev has also pointed out that there are no plans for creating any more major test sites for ICBMs, but the emergence of mobile test facilities is a possibility.

    "Of late, there was a boom in the development of systems monitoring the tests of our missiles and special weapons, which allow for tracking the entire flight path of the delivery vehicles and warheads. This does not suit us for obvious reasons. Nevertheless, there are no immediate plans for creating more major test sites," he said.

    Karakayev said progress in digital information technologies, measurement means and the testing base allowed for the creation of re-deployable test complexes.

    "Moreover, the legal and regulatory base will allow the Strategic Missile Force to alienate for certain periods of time and use new required areas where dummy warheads might fall. Moreover, economically this is more feasible," he said.


    Russia’s strategic missile force to have 70% of advanced weapons by 2018



    According to Karakayev, the share of the strategic missile force’s advanced hardware will reach 70% by 2018.

    "The successful implementation of rearmament measures will build up the share of advanced missile complexes from 56% this year to 70% by January 1, 2018 and to 100% by 2022," he said.

    Karakayev said that the pace of the strategic missile force’s rearmament was established with due regard for the emergence of new types of missiles defenses, the withdrawal of previous generation inter-continental ballistic missiles from operation, compliance with international contracts and the capabilities of Russia’s arms manufacturing industry.

    "In any case, the priority task of all rearmament plans is to guarantee the strategic missile force’s capability to cope with diversified nuclear deterrence tasks," Karakayev said.


    Sarmat, Voyevoda heavy ICBM to four times excel light-class missiles


    Tactical effectiveness of the grouping of the Voyevoda and Sarmat heavy stationary intercontinental ballistic missiles is four times higher than that of the light-class Topol-M and Yars stationary missiles, Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) Colonel General Sergei Karakayev told journalists on Tuesday.

    "The performance of the stationary grouping of the heavy ICBM (of the Voyevoda or Sarmat class) will four times surpass that of the stationary grouping of the light-class ICBM (Topol-M, Yars) by all the RVSN grouping tactical effectiveness parameters," he said.

    The RS-28 Sarmat is the state-of-the-art heavy liquid-propelled ICBM currently being developed for the Russian army.It is designed to replace the old Soviet R-36M missiles Voyevoda, codenamed Satan by NATO, as the heavy silo-based component of Russia's nuclear deterrence. The RS-28 has been in development since 2009 and is scheduled to start replacing the old ICBMs in 2018.
