    The largest country in the world by area, Russia has plenty of room to hide things. Naturally, that includes nuclear missiles. Unlike American missiles, which are stationed in concrete silos, Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are deployed on large truck-like vehicles designed to prowl the country's road networks before unleashing Armageddon.

    Also part of the convoy is a tracked robotic vehicle equipped with a machine gun. The unmanned vehicle can more quickly close with an enemy threat and eliminate it before the enemy can shoot at the giant, highly flammable rockets with nuclear warheads strapped to them.We've said it before, and we'll say it again: these mobile ICBMs are terrifying.


    bwahahahah Russian doctrine says about retaliation so III WW can ba unleashed by US only. As we can see in abovementioned example pop mech is part of info war (IIWW component) against Russia.

    Russian Strategic Missile Force armed with about 400 ballistic missiles — Defense Ministry

    Russia’s strategic missile system Sarmat will go operational 2019-2020


    MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Russia’s Strategic Missile Force operates about 400 intercontinental ballistic missiles, which makes up over 60% of the Russian nuclear triad’s warheads and carriers, Strategic Missile Force Commander Colonel-General Sergei Karakayev said on Thursday.

    "At present, the Strategic Missile Force grouping comprises about 400 intercontinental ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads of various categories of their capacity," the commander said.

    Therefore, the Russian Strategic Missile Force concentrates over 60% of strategic weapons and warheads of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces. In addition to the Strategic Missile Force, Russia’s nuclear triad includes seaborne strategic forces and strategic aviation, the commander said.

    According to the commander, "99% of launchers in the Strategic Missile Force grouping are kept in a combat-ready state."

    As the commander said, the funds allocated under the state armament program through 2020 allow maintaining the pace of troops’ rearmament.

    "The emphasis in developing the Strategic Missile Force’s perspective strike grouping will be made on its qualitative transformation and a considerable increase in the share of modern missile systems," the commander said.

    Over the same period, the systems of troops’ and weapons’ combat control will be qualitatively improved, he added.

    "In the final account, the Strategic Missile Force will have a balanced structure and operate an optimal number of missiles designated to solve the diverse tasks of ensuring nuclear containment and Russia’s security," the commander said.

    Russia’s strategic missile system Sarmat will go operational in 2019-2020.

    "Alongside the gradual withdrawal of the Voyevoda missile from service the strategic missile system Sarmat will be authorized for service and go operational. The Sarmat is a silo-based liquid propellant heavy missile. The estimated date when it may enter duty is 2019-2020," Karakayev said, when asked when the Sarmat might take Voyevoda’s place.

    Karakayev said the Voyevoda’s reliability parameters after 28 years in service remained stable.

    "The decisions made by now will keep the Voyevoda complex till 2022," he added.

    Earlier reports said the Sarmat would be put on duty at the end of 2018.

    The Sarmat is a heavy inter-continental ballistic missile carrying a maximum payload of ten tonnes, in contrast to its predecessor’s 8.75-tonne payload. It is expected to replace the R-36M2 missile (Voyevoda), which, according to open sources, was authorized for service in 1988.

    The Sarmat’s prototype was already available in the autumn of 2015, but no pop-up tests have been made so far. A source in the defense-industrial complex at the Plesetsk space site was not ready yet, adding that the first tests were due at the end of 2016.

    Yars missiles


    Russia’s Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles are capable of dodging space-based antimissile interceptors, Karakayev said.

    Russia to use Yars ICBM launchers first time in chemical troops’ special drills

    "The missile of the Yars system incorporates the options of an antimissile trajectory maneuver to dodge space-based missile shield interceptors. Of course, this system, as it enters into service, considering the development of missile shield complexes and the system’s upgraded versions, will in a perspective strengthen the combat capabilities of the Strategic Missile Force strike grouping to breach missile defense systems and strengthen the nuclear containment potential of the Russian strategic nuclear forces," the commander said.

    The Yars missile system has larger capabilities for the use of the positioning area compared to the Topol ICBMs, which it is designated to replace, the commander said.

    "The Yars design specifics allow for launches from the sites, on which the Topol could assume combat duty only after special engineering re-equipment. Improvements have been made to the characteristics of communications means and the chassis and the missile itself has become more powerful and actually invulnerable to the enemy’s existing missile shield systems. The Yars missile warhead has also changed qualitatively, the commander said.

    Russia missile forces to conduct 10 ballistic launches in 2017.

    "Next year there will be more than ten launches, mostly expected to test future missile systems and prolong the operation of the current ones. Also, three will be some combat test launches," he said.

    Russian Strategic Missile Forces: constantly on standby

    Karakayev recalled that in 2016 the Strategic Missile Force carried out six missile launches - four of new missile systems, one for the purpose of prolonging the operation of existing missiles and one combat training launch.

    The SMF commander said that Russia would notify the United States of all of its missile launches no less than 24 hours in advance under the Soviet-US treaty of 1988 and within the framework of the current strategic arms reduction treaty.

    "The notification states the planned launch dates, the site and the area where the warheads are expected to fall," he said.

    Karakayev told the media that 160 weapon samples have been tested at the Kapustin Yar test site this year, twice the number tested last year.

    "In 2017 the experimental facilities will finish to be upgraded. This will allow for increasing the intensity of launches and expand the range of tests," he said.

    this explained things quite well. So Rubhez is a follow up to Yars in that it uses hypersonic maneuverable warheads. And that Sarmat is a follow on to the Veovoda. The article is correct. It is much needed and a very modest/cheap upgrade that makes Russia untouchable.

    US START declarations are not worth much, I am sure Russia has caught on.

    The notion of storing warheads while supposedly not building new missiles is bizarre if one takes it at face value. Given the
    history of two-faced behaviour by Uncle Scam, it is likely the US has whole new missile factories churning out modular components.
    These can be assembled into fully functional ICBMs together with the "stored" warheads on short notice.

    Latest camouflage kits to be fielded to Topol ground-mobile missile divisions

    In 2017, the Strategic Missile Force will receive winter and summer camouflage kits to hide and simulate its materiel. Priority will be given to the Topol ground-mobile missile system divisions, according to the Russian Defense Ministry’s press office.

    "The number of mobile missile system camouflaging kits fielded to the Strategic Missile Force will increase by more than 15 times over 2013 - to 1,500. The Strategic Missile Force pays special attention to camouflaging in order to increase the survivability of its ground-mobile missile systems," the press release says.

    In particular, the missile divisions operating the ground-mobile Topol have been annually receiving an increased number of camouflage kits of various models allowing various types of masking and camouflaging techniques depending on the season, weather, and position area. For this reason, the ground-mobile missile divisions will take delivery of more than 1,000 MKT-4L camouflage kits and over 500 MKT-2S ones in 2017.

    The MKT-4L summer and MKT-2S winter kits are used for camouflaging combat vehicles and military facilities against enemy optical and radar surveillance and reconnaissance assets.

    And of course the fact that the ground launched cruise missile is a 500km range weapon too... of course they could simply put Calibr on a barge on a river and they would have a 2,500km range cruise missile...

    Old story... keep repeating it and eventually people forget it is not true.

    ...Or just use Burevestnik, the sole test footage of it was shown being ground launched, and it's range doesn't violate the INF Treaty. Wink

    Very good point... the INF treaty covers ground launched ballistic or cruise missiles with a range of between 500km and 5,500km, so a cruise missile with unlimited range would not be bound by that treaty. he he he....

    by the conventional "implosion" (more like confinement) allows the nuclear cascade to progress to the point where it acts faster than any

    Orbital platforms are not viable since they were proposed during the 1950s and 1960s using the "fact" that space above countries is not

    transit with a holding pattern requiring one final command.  One could launch hundreds of such devices orbiting over their target in LEO
    and the final stage would take under 10 minutes or much less if the warhead is propelled.   This not the same as ICBMs stationed within
    their origin countries.    

    My comment was more related to the undesirability of a having a nuclear weapon involved in a uncontrolled re-entry of a malfunctioning weapons platform and potentially failing into the "wrong" hands.  Also the PR fallout would be disastrous...  these HATO cunts can manufacture anti-Russian agitprop campaigns out of zero-evidence (MH17, "invasion" of Crimea & Donbass, state-sponsored doping, Sochi Olympics "corruption", anti-LGBT "repression", Nemtsov assassination, Litvinenko/Skripal poisoning, CW false flags etc etc) so imagine what such inventive fertile reptile minds would make of a Russian nuke de-orbiting and landing in Europe/Asia/Africa/AMERICA!!! or our "precious fragile environment"...  I can only imagine the headlines....

    I'm blown away why more people aren't talking about that it was launched from a ground launcher, it's as if they were trying to send the right message to the right people. It's like they were saying that the AEGIS ashore and it's Mk. 41 test cell isn't the only way to get around the INF Treaty, the only difference is that Burevestnik doesn't actually violate the INF Treaty meanwhile the Aegis Ashore/Mk. 41 cell completely dismantles it!

    BTW with the Mk. 41 cell being capable of firing Tomahawk cruise missiles, and it being incorporated in to Aegis Ashore, all that really does is open up Pandora's box! Nothing stops the VKS from developing ballistic and cruise missiles that are capable of being fired from S-300/400/500 launch tubes if deemed necessary. The esteemed MIT Physicist Theodore Postol exposed the Missile Shield tests to be a red herring using their own test data, but with the Pentagon's heavy insistence to maintain the program at all costs, which in my opinion suggests that those test missiles could actually be IRBM's in disguise, like the tests are a Kabuki theater being performed in Plato's Cave. This is not really a stretch of the imagination, Buk and the S-300 series could engage ground targets, and even the SM-6 missile has been shown capable of engaging naval targets:

    Anti-Aircraft Missile Sinks Ship: Navy SM-6


    But on the bright side, the Euro Meat Shield doesn't factor in the fact that Russia is by far the best protected country against a cruise missile attack, with the Baikal-M system being capable of incorporating Kornet-D, Igla-S, even MBT GLATGM's munitions in intercepting terrain hugging cruise missiles. Kornet-D is said to be capable of destroying air targets as high as 9 km's in height.

    @magnumcromagnon

    You are right, the ABM shield is basically a sham. It is a combination of delusional BS for NATO leaders and the credulous NATO masses
    and the very real INF violation orchestrated by the elements (deep state) with a clue. The closer NATO gets its strategic nuclear
    missiles to Russia's border, so their logic goes, the less time that Russia has

    1) to respond to any first strike

    2) to launch its own counter-strike

    So these maggots see only win-win. They don't see any lose. Now tell me what regime with an imperial bent has ever
    kept itself in check. It is foaming at the mouth trying to leap at this opportunity to take Russia out.

    Unfortunately for NATO and humanity, things ain't so simple. Just because the response window is reduced does not mean
    that Russia is forever more constrained from responding. All those over-the-horizon phased array radars don't get rendered
    useless. If they can track the small warheads launched from US territory, they can also track the IRBMs launched from Russia's
    border region. Russia does not need to suck Uncle Scumbag's schlong. It can impose its own algorithm for a counter-strike.

    It seems to me that NATO propagandists want some sort of ass-covering for posterity. They will claim Russia launched a first
    strike and it was NATO ABMs launched in response. Nobody will know the truth anyway. The problem is that any nuclear
    launches are all-in and posterity really does not matter. If you pay attention to the drivel coming from NATO, it seems that
    these maggots are expecting some sort of conventional war with limited nuclear exchange. No sane planning can talk about
    winning a full blown nuclear exchange. It is almost as if they are expecting Russia to restrain itself from using is nukes. I do
    not know what crack they are smoking. Maybe back in the 1990s they had a chance to compromise the Russian response, but
    not on Putin's watch. Putin's credentials as an intelligence agent are gold for Russia. In the modern world, intelligence is like
    the white blood cells of the immune system keeping the organism (country by analogy) alive.

    My comment was more related to the undesirability of a having a nuclear weapon involved in a uncontrolled re-entry of a malfunctioning weapons platform and potentially failing into the "wrong" hands.  Also the PR fallout would be disastrous...  these HATO cunts can manufacture anti-Russian agitprop campaigns out of zero-evidence (MH17, "invasion" of Crimea & Donbass, state-sponsored doping, Sochi Olympics "corruption", anti-LGBT "repression", Nemtsov assassination, Litvinenko/Skripal poisoning, CW false flags etc etc) so imagine what such inventive fertile reptile minds would make of a Russian nuke de-orbiting and landing in Europe/Asia/Africa/AMERICA!!! or our "precious fragile environment"...  I can only imagine the headlines....

    I agree the PR is bad. But any stationing of nukes in orbit would be symmetric with both NATO and Russia doing it. So the propaganda
    slack is limited. The real problem for any side that wants to deploy such weapons is the escalation factor. And since both sides would do
    it, any advantage is nullified. As discussed in the adjacent posts, it is games with the ABM that are all the rage with NATO today.

    You are right, the ABM shield is basically a sham.   It is a combination of delusional BS for NATO leaders and the credulous NATO masses
    and the very real INF violation orchestrated by the elements (deep state) with a clue.   The closer NATO gets its strategic nuclear
    missiles to Russia's border, so their logic goes, the less time that Russia has

    1) to respond to any first strike

    2) to launch its own counter-strike

    So these maggots see only win-win.   They don't see any lose.   Now tell me what regime with an imperial bent has ever
    kept itself in check.   It is foaming at the mouth trying to leap at this opportunity to take Russia out.

    Unfortunately for NATO and humanity, things ain't so simple.  Just because the response window is reduced does not mean
    that Russia is forever more constrained from responding.   All those over-the-horizon phased array radars don't get rendered
    useless.   If they can track the small warheads launched from US territory, they can also track the IRBMs launched from Russia's
    border region.    Russia does not need to suck Uncle Scumbag's schlong.   It can impose its own algorithm for a counter-strike.

    It seems to me that NATO propagandists want some sort of ass-covering for posterity.   They will claim Russia launched a first
    strike and it was NATO ABMs launched in response.   Nobody will know the truth anyway.   The problem is that any nuclear
    launches are all-in and posterity really does not matter.   If you pay attention to the drivel coming from NATO, it seems that
    these maggots are expecting some sort of conventional war with limited nuclear exchange.   No sane planning can talk about
    winning a full blown nuclear exchange.   It is almost as if they are expecting Russia to restrain itself from using is nukes.   I do
    not know what crack they are smoking.   Maybe back in the 1990s they had a chance to compromise the Russian response, but
    not on Putin's watch.   Putin's credentials as an intelligence agent are gold for Russia.   In the modern world, intelligence is like

    Western bluster is truly astonishing, who else remembers back in 2007 when they were openly talking about using tactical nuclear weapons against Iran, and literally no called them out on it? Even this Prompt Global Strike is nothing more than a beard to violate the START treaties, hypersonic flying vehicles flying at ICBM speeds will be perceived as such, and similarly the whole kerfuffle with North Korea is nothing more than justifying putting land based Mk. 41 cells in South Korea and Japan to menace Russia and China.
