    In the images non-manoeuvring trajectory is also given which exactly what a Ballistic Missile follows. Any idea are they showing the conventional trajectory to compare or it belongs to Old still in service Russian ICBMs. Any Idea what trajectory does Minuteman-III follow ? Same manoeuvrable one ?

    The only land-based ICBM in service with the United Stated is the LGM-30G Minuteman III. Each missile carries one W87 warhead with a capacity of up to three hundred kilotons (though it can carry up to three warheads). The last missile was produced back in 1978, meaning that the “youngest” is thirty-eight years old. The missiles have been upgraded many times, and are intended to be used until 2030. The latest missile, the LGM118A Peacekeeper, was deployed in 1986, but all fifty of them were removed from combat duty on a unilateral basis by 2005—and it is safe to say that the LGM118A Peacekeeper was an improvement in comparison with the Minuteman III, because the Peacekeeper could carry up to ten warheads. Despite the failure of the Start II Treaty, which banned the use of MIRVs, the United States gave up MIRVs on its own. Its credibility was lost because of the high price, and the scandal in which it was revealed that the missiles were lacking AIRS guidance systems for almost four years (1984–88). Laughing


    Russia will replace the Topol missile (essentially equivalent to the Minuteman III) by 2020, with the newest missiles, which are specifically designed to penetrate enemy missile-defense systems.

    what do you think about Rubezh is it really modular system ble to be configured as both IRBM and ICBM?

    indeed it can be also used as an ICBM nonetheless how many ICBMs were tested on 2,000km distances? it is smaller and lighter than yars. I would be surprised if in wake of U$ amd build up, aggressive NATO regimes´expansion Russia did not have some nice surprise for "partners" I hope Rubezh will fulfill niche of Pioneer IRBM

    One Russian Regiment Rearmed With Yars Missile to Take Up Duty by 2016

    A Russian missile regiment rearmed with RS-24 Yars missile will take up duty in December, Col. Yury Sytnik, Commander of the 29th missile division of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, said on Friday.

    Russia Successfully Launches Yars ICBM From Plesetsk to Kamchatka
    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Currently military and industrial experts are carrying out trials and putting on operation separate sections of the missile complex, Sytnik added.

    "In December 2016, the 92nd missile regiment equipped with the mobile-based RS-24 Yars missile complex will take up duty after it is put in operation and placed on alert," Col. Sytnik said during the unified military goods commissioning day.

    The current version of the RS-24 Yars (NATO designation SS-27 Mod 2) can reportedly carry up to 10 MIRV warheads and has a range of 11,000 kilometers (some 6,800 miles).

    Russia’s westernmost ICBM unit to be armed with Yars missile — commander

    MOSCOW, September 20. /TASS/. Russia’s westernmost ICBM division near Bologoye will be re-armed with the missile system Yars, the Defense Ministry has told TASS.

    "The westernmost strategic missile force division in the Tver region will soon begin to be rearmed with the missile system Yars. It will be a sixth strategic missile division where the newest mobile ground-based missile complexes will replace the intercontinental ballistic missile Topol," the press-service of the Strategic Missile Force quotes its commander Sergey Karakayev as saying.

    RS-24 Yars base construction in Nizhniy Tagil

    Recently updated Google Earth images show that the Strategic Rocket Forces recently received a new base for RD-24 Yars missiles that are deployed with the 42nd missile division in Nizhniy Tagil. The site is the base of the 804th regiment (58.13748, 60.53811, в\ч 9430, 11 площадка). The most recent image was taken on 5 May 2016.

    The new base answers the question of where did all the Yars missiles deployed in Nizhniy Tagil in 2013 and in 2014 go. Some were deployed at the base built at the "21st ploshchadka", the home of the 308th regiment (it was said to have been disbanded in 2004, though). But there was also good evidence that the 804th regiment received Yars missiles as well. However, the images taken at the site in June-September 2014 showed dismantled shelters, but no new construction. They must have waited in a shelter somewhere.

    It appears that at least one more Yars base will be built in Nizhniy Tagil - at the 142nd regiment base (58.19598, 60.58049, в\ч 73795, 5 площадка). There is a paper trail of construction activity there and the May 2016 images show that all shelters have been dismantled (they were in place in 2014).

    Other two bases in Nizhniy Tagil - 617th regiment (58.080077, 60.211, в\ч 12830, 12 площадка) and 433rd regiment (58.10153, 60.35971, в\ч 19972, 1 площадка) - do not seem to see any new construction yet. The 617th regiment was reportedly disbanded in 2008, but as we can see with the 21 ploshchadka, this doesn't necessarily mean the old base cannot be used for new construction.

    RS-24 Yars is replacing Topol in Vypolzovo and elsewhere

    The information department of the ministry of defense quotes the commander of the Strategic Rocket Forces, Sergey Karakayev, as saying that RS-24 Yars missiles will soon be deployed in Bologoye division, also referred to by its treaty name Vypolzovo or as the 7th guards missile division. According to Karakayev, one of the Topol regiments has just completed its final exercise (of which the September 9 launch appears to be a part). He seems to suggest that after the exercise all Topol missile have been withdrawn from service.

    There are two active regiments in the 7th division - the 41st missile regiment (57.86305, 33.65167, в\ч 14264, 1-й полк) and the 510th missile regiment (57.78825, 33.86542, в\ч 52642, 2-й полк). It is reasonable to assume that both will receive new Yars missiles. Unless, of course, the old report about possible deployment of RS-26 in Vypolzovo turns out to be true. The source of that report was not particularly reliable, but nothing that Karakayev said rules out this possibility (or confirms it, for that matter).

    Karakayev also said that in 2016 the conversion to RS-24 Yars began in Irkutsk and Yoshkar-Ola divisions and was almost completed in Novosibirsk and Nizhniy Tagil. It has been fully completed in Teykovo.

    Indeed, the work in Nizhniy Tagil can be now seen on satellite images. If it is "almost completed," then it's possible that the conversion will stop after three regiments there received Yars missiles. We will see.

    In the Novosibirsk division, the 428th regiment (55.31046,83.02408, в\ч 44197, 13 площадка) is known to be converted. The 382nd regiment site (55.31745, 83.16841, в\ч 44238, 21 площадка) looks like there is some construction there underway (and indeed, there is a paper trail of construction activity), so it's one more regiment to be converted. As of May 2016, there were no signs of activity at the 357th regiment site (55.32551, 82.94215, в\ч 54097, 12 площадка), so it's possible that this regiment will not receive Yars missiles (remember, Karakayev said the conversion is almost completed).

    In Irkutsk, there is no visible activity at either of the three bases that are believed to be active, so if RS-24 Yars are deployed there, they are using the old Topol shelters and garages. In fact, Karakayev hinted in his interview that this might be possible. If this is the case, Yars is probably deployed at with the two regiments that had their shelters in place as recently as September 2014 and May 2015 - respectively the 344th missile regiment (52.66944, 104.51972, в\ч 52933, 2-й полк) and the 586th missile regiment (52.55167, 104.15861, в\ч 52009, 3-й полк). The 92nd missile regiment (52.50861, 104.39333, в\ч 48409, 1-й полк) has no shelters since at least 2012, so it is unlikely that there are any missiles deployed there. Of course, one theory is that this regiment will be the first to receive RS-26 Rubezh missiles (which probably will not happen until 2017).

    Finally, Yoshkar-Ola. None of the images of the 290th missile regiment (56.83194, 48.24083, в\ч 93876, площадка 1к) -- Google Earth has one from 2014, there are some reasonably recent images on Yandex and Bing -- show activity there. However, we wouldn't see anything if the conversion just started in 2016. Situation at the other two active sites -- the 779th missile regiment (56.5825, 48.15472, в\ч 69795, 1 площадка) and the 697th missile regiment (56.56, 48.21528, в\ч 48404, 16 площадка) -- is the same. It may be, however, that the RS-24 base will be built at a new place - Spetsstroy documents mention "3 ploshadka". Images in the area, however, are mostly from 2014, so we cannot see the most recent construction.

    The only division not affected by conversion yet is the 35th missile division in Barnaul. All its four regiments (described earlier) appear to be operational.

    In 2016 the Strategic Missile Forces put on combat duty 23 launchers missile system "Υars".

    Comment bmpd. Thus, by the end of 2016, armed with Russian Strategic Missile Forces must be presumed, 96 launchers for the missile complex RS-24 "yars" (presumably, 78 silo and 18 mobile).

    Plus the 60 silo and 18 mobile Topol-M. Getting close to 200 modern ICBM's.

    Four new Russian Missile Forces with Yars ICBM sytems on combat duty

    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated that four new regiments of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, were put on combat duty in 2016 said Thursday.

    Four new regiments of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, armed with Yars intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) systems, were put on combat duty in 2016, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Thursday. "Four new regiments, armed with mobile Yars missile systems, were put on combat readiness," Shoigu said.

    "Four new regiments, armed with mobile Yars missile systems, were put on combat readiness," Shoigu said.

    The RS-24 Yars also known as RT-24 Yars, NATO reporting name: SS-29) is a Russian MIRV-equipped, thermonuclear weapon intercontinental ballistic missile first tested on May 29, 2007, after a secret military R&D project, to replace the older R-36 and UR-100N that have been in use for nearly 50 years. RS-24 is a missile that is heavier than the current Topol-M, and which some reports say can carry up to 10 independently targetable warheads.

    The assumption that it has the same solid fuel as the Topol M is not backed up by anything. It
    has been a long time since the Topol M was introduced. Chemical engineering moves on. You
    can see this evolution by comparing Soviet and relatively recent solid rocket fuel characteristics.
    For the same weight the newer Russian variants are twice as energetic.

    Russia is not going to be giving out the fuel specifications for general consumption. It is a high
    level military secret and Wikipedia level analysis is worth squat.

    According to the START declaration RS-24 has that same throw weight, missile weight and range as the Topol M. This is MIRV version Topol-M. So propably RS-24 use very similar solid fuel.
