    Kinda weird to report 8 missiles.

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

    Russian defense official confirms plans to complete Yars missile system rearmament by 2021

    Yars is aimed at destroying enemy’s stationary strategic targets with the RS-24 missile having total power of multiple warheads equivalent to 45 US atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima

    MOSCOW, July 23. /TASS/. Rearmament of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) with the newest Yars mobile missile system is planned to be completed by 2021. Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman for RVSN Dmitry Andreyev told TASS on Thursday that a division of the Yoshkar-Ola RVSN formation will be transferred to the Yars system in 2016.

    "On July 23, 1985, the first mobile missile regiment with intercontinental-range missiles was put on combat duty in the Republic of Mari El. The Yoshkar-Ola formation is currently armed with the Topol mobile missile system. In 2016, the division is to be re-equipped with the newest Yars mobile missile system," Andreyev said.

    In the next few years, the Topol mobile missile systems will remain at the heart of Russia’s "nuclear shield." About a hundred mobile missile carriers are now on combat duty across the country. The Topol mobile missile system, which has no analogues in the foreign missile industry, is designed to engage all types of strategic targets. Ove the past 30 years, about 100 missile launches have been carried out without a single abortive launch.

    Yars is the result of modernization of the Topol system to destroy enemy’s stationary strategic targets with the RS-24 missile. It has increased total power of multiple warheads, equivalent to 45 US atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima.

    On Tuesday, advisor to the RVSN commander Viktor Yesin said that all missile divisions of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces would be rearmed with the Yars and Yars-M mobile ground missile systems with the RS-26 missile in 2021. "The process of rearmament of all missile divisions, which now use the Topol missile complex, with the Yars mobile missile system and Yars-M system, which is sometimes called Rubezh, with the RS-26 missile, is planned to be completed in 2021. By that time the Topol mobile missile system will be withdrawn from service," Yesin said.

    According to him, the Topol missile system is currently in service with 7 RVSN divisions of the total 12. "The Teikovo missile division has been rearmed with the Topol-M and Yars missile systems now. Its rearmament has been completed," he said.

    Interesting, since Irkutsk was expected to receive RS-26(http://tass.ru/politika/1290469).The total number of new missiles, according to Karakayev, is about 20.

    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.

    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.

    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.
