    I can just imagine the complaints from the west... why does Russian continue to spend money on nuclear weapons while the peace loving west spends money on missile defence systems that will prevent war rather than start them. Why does Russia need all these new nuclear weapons when the peaceful west simply continues to use its old missiles like Peacekeeper? Does Russia want to start an Arms race?

    As usual, western propaganda at its best... the western media tells its audience about all these new Russian weapons, but it fails to tell the full story as usual.

    The reality is that the new arms treaties which Russia and the US have signed has reduced dramatically the number of warheads each side can have and no arms race is actually possible without breaking that agreement and there is
    no evidence either side has broken it yet.

    The Russians are developing new weapons because their old weapons were Soviet and they don't want to have to share secrets with countries that now seem to want to enter NATO or are part of NATO.

    The whole concept of nuclear deterrance is based on mutually assured destruction... if one side has an enormous anti missile infrastructure along with a reduced number of nuclear weapons for both sides and a powerful conventional capability and a military alliance that includes most of Russias European neighbours then this undermines the nuclear deterrent. A powerful strike against Russias nuclear facilities... which are limited by treaty in location and number, might lead to a situation where they might decide they have enough of a missile shield to stop anything they don't get in the first strike attack on Russias nuclear weapons assets. In other words an ABM system actually makes nuclear war more likely... rather than less likely.

    The irony is that the military industrial complex that builds the ABM system will make all sorts of promises as to its effectiveness and it might just take one president to believe them to start a war that no one could win. For Russia the thought that their missiles do get through and wipe out the US will be of little compensation.

    The ABM systems now are unregulated and destabilising and so the Russian solution of rail mounted missiles makes an enormous amount of sense. Currently truck mounted missiles are limited to deployment areas by treaty, but rail mounted missiles can be rapidly dispersed in hours over an enormous area amongst millions of other very similar looking carriages... it is a perfectly natural solution to the problem posed by the US ABM system.

    The destabilising nature of ABMs is why they had an ABM treaty in the first place.

    Tested a new ICBM SRF which is equipped with hypersonic warheads
    http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/41708/

    Tested in RVSN intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) equipped with several hypersonic warheads.



    "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 Americans are trying to suggest the new missiles to replace Yars and Topol have a range of less than 5,500km and therefore violate the INF treaty Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

    Russia's Space defence force tests launch Yars new ballistic missile

    Russia's Space Defence Force test-launches Yars ballistic missile

    Moscow, 14/04/14. /ITAR-TASS/Vladimir Smirnov. Russia’s strategic missile force and air and space defence force have test-launched an inter-continental ballistic missile RS-24 with a multiple warhead from the Plesetsk space site. The missile blasted off from a mobile launcher at 10:40 Moscow time, the Defence Ministry’s strategic missile force spokesman, Colonel Igor Yegorov has said.
    “The main task of the launch was to confirm the reliability of a batch of missiles manufactured at the Votkinsk plant, in Udmurtia,” he said.
    The experimental warheads arrived at the designated area at the Kura testing range, in Kamchatka Peninsula.
    The objectives were achieved in full, Yegorov said.
    Yars construction
    RS-24 Yars was designed  by the academician of Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology Yuri Solomonov. This missile is based on scientific, technical and technological solutions implemented in a rocket complex Topol-M, which significantly reduced the time and cost to create it. Adopting RS-24 with a multiple warhead increased combat capabilities of Russia’s strategic missile force to overcome missile defense systems, thereby strengthening the nuclear deterrence potential of the Russian strategic nuclear forces. This missile replaced ICBM RS -12M Topol, RS-18 Stiletto.
    "In future, the SS-24 mobile groups form the basis of the Strategic Missile Forces, which will be capable guarantee the security of the country and its allies until the middle of the XXI century," Yegorov said.

    Combat vehicles Typhoon to guard missile formations rearmed with ICBMs Yars

    MOSCOW, August 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Combat anti-sabotage vehicles Typhoon will guard Russian Strategic Missile Forces’ formations, rearmed with thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles Yars.

    These combat machines will be delivered to all reequipped missile units this year, spokesman for Russian Strategic Missile Forces Major Dmitry Andreyev told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.

    “Combat anti-sabotage vehicles are unique as they are armed with unmanned aerial combat vehicles and can detect the enemy at a distance of up to five kilometres,” he said.

    Strategic Missile Forces are improving their combat capability to fight terrorism and are keeping all existing Russian computerized security systems on combat alert.

    Combat anti-sabotage vehicles Typhoon-M passed all tests in 2012. Their delivery to missile formations started in 2013.

    Three Yars mobile ICBM regiments to be put on combat duty December — Defense Ministry

    MOSCOW, September 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (RSMF) by the end of the year will re-equip their three regiments with the Yars mobile missile systems to be put on trial combat duty in December, RSMF spokesman Major Dmitry Andreyev told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.

    “By the end of 2014, two more RSMF mobile regiments are planned to be equipped with the Yars system - in the Tagil and Novosibirsk missile formations and another stationary regiment - in the Kozelsk division. These three regiments are to be put on trial combat duty in December 2014,” he said.

    According to Andreyev, with the re-equipment of a number of RSMF formations with Yars, the missile system’s share in these forces has already reached 50%. “Further plans for equipping other missile formations with the Yars system have already been made,” the RSMF spokesman added.

    The RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with a multiple warhead was designed by the Moscow-based Institute of Thermal Technology. “This missile was designed with the science and technology solutions applied in the Topol-M missile system, which considerably cut the time and costs for its creation,” Andreyev said.

    According to him, the RS-24 ICBM will boost the combat capability of the RSMF cutting edge against missile defense systems, thus strengthening the deterrence potential of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces. “In the future, along with the single-warhead RS-12M2 ICBM (Topol-M missile system), the RS-24 ICBM will form the backbone of the RSMF main attack force,” the spokesman added.

    16 new Yars missiles by the end of 2014 - nice number  thumbsup


    Strategic Missile Forces will supply 16 "Yarsov" on alert until the end of the year

    Strategic Missile Forces until the end of the year put on alert 16 missile systems "Yars", said Friday the Strategic Missile Forces Commander Colonel General Sergei Karakayev

    The main performance characteristics of the RK "yars" refer intercontinental range, equipping multiple reentry warhead with maneuverable units of individual targeting, highest agility and, as a consequence, increased survivability.

    Last test of Russia’s new Yars-based ballistic missile put off — source
    The solid propellant inter-continental ballistic missile RS-26 will be launched in the first quarter of 2015
    The last test launch of the solid propellant inter-continental ballistic missile RS-26, created on the basis of the RS-24 Yars missile, has been postponed until the first quarter of 2015, a source in Russia’s defense sector said on Friday.
    “The last test has been postponed until the first quarter of this year, and a decision will be taken after that,” the source said, explaining that the delay comes due to the lack of funding.
    RS-26, known as Avangard and Rubezh, should be significantly lighter that RS-24 Yars. It has improved combat capabilities and will carry multiple warheads. Earlier reports said the new missile could enter into service in 2015.

    This is the first time in many years I heard that something was cancelled due to "lack of funding"..

    Kinda weird to report 8 missiles.

    9 would make a full road-mobile regiment, why not wait for 1 more to get delivered?
