    Why do they keep saying this? I thought missiles systems like Topol-M, Yars, Bulava and Sineava already have anti ABM systems and are already available? Or do they mean systems designed to strike the ABM's specifically? Cause wouldnt anti radiation missiles do that job?

    Never ending battle of technology.

    The article is too vague and misses that this is a discussion about changing the launch characteristics of Russian ICBMs. Russia
    already has the maneuverable warheads, but it also needs to reduce the boost phase. In fact, the best counter-measure to
    Uncle Sam's sick ABM ambitions is to reduce the boost phase. Then all of the ABM systems in Poland, Romania, Alaska, and
    even the to-be-deployed ship systems that are supposed to cruise near Russia's shore are going to be irrelevant. This will
    kill the US ABM dreams stone cold dead.

    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.

    Scramjet technology I suppose. Since they have been working on it for years. Manouverable warheads, as you said, are already in service so last is indeed the speed itself. Element of surprise as well, so reducing the radar cross section of missile as well as reducing the effect from the launch (smoke, infrared signature as example). Newer cruise missiles like KH-555 is an example of developing advanced stealthy missile tech but how to implement such tech to a BM?

    Counter measures too like decoys....

    I suppose there are other ways. And the current ABM systems have so far proven to be far less capable than touted. But are still a threat.

    Boost phase... ie the main first stage rocket that blasts the ICBM out of the silo/truck launch tube is made more powerful to give better acceleration so the rocket spends less time in the early boost phase.

    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.

    Give them an ultimatum if they agree fine enough and if they dont simply deploy 50 nuclear tipped Iksanders in Kaliningrad.

    Iskander is a key weapon here. Traditional BM's fly all the same trajectory but Iskander flies a quasi ballistic path which would make it very difficult to intercept or possibly even to track. If they can use same missile but drasticallly increase distance of said missile, it will be even more a game changer.

    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.

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...

    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.

    Why not correct if may I ask?

    Russian Strategic Missile Force new control system to retarget missiles instantly — source

    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.
