    Commenting on the recent nuclear submarine fire at a shipyard in Russia’s Far East, Rogozin said that snap inspections will be held at all Russian industrial facilities under his supervision to see how the management follows work and fire safety instructions.
    Finally at least one good idea from this guy.

    Oh man, Rogozin's supervision, that has to be at such high industry standards Wink

    Hopefully we get good pics from his visits (he is a twitter whore after all) that gauge the state of the Pacific Shipyards.

    The sheer annoyance of members always talking trash of Rogozin. The man at least pushes for domestic. I bet if you guys were in position, you would import all, right?

    Anyway, this is a very good idea, as this will keep management on their toes, especially if there is any reprecutions if there are violations.

    Pay me the amount of money he gets, and I will talk about "all domestic" too all over Twitter and take photo opps in snazzy jackets every other day.


    Come back to me when Rogozin actually does something without cameras around him.

    IDK about his leather jacket, but you can get that tank suit he was wearing from UVZ, all for the cheap affordable price of 87,000 rubles:

    Tank suit for 87,000 rub?

    It enrages me that all this new shit that they're exhibiting; the expensive tank suits, etc... none of it will find its way to the troops. It's all fucking pokazukha; for show before the cameras.
    For the troops, conscripts anyway - they'll just give out some low-quality rubbish and not what they need.

    That's what I suspect anyway. I hope I'm wrong. I just don't see how a country can change all that much in just a few years.

    It is definitely a stupidly priced suit.

    But it is just UVZ, the real problem is MoDs attitude towards enlisted men.
    Shoigu is at least doing some work on that level - like his decree of modern showers in every base. Common sense stuff, but common sense and the Russian military are sometimes contradictory subjects.

    When you treat men like crap how do you expect they will treat their expensive shiny new Armatas...

    Just a way to siphon some money off for some people I suspect.

    I remember my eyes bulged out of my head when I read the figures circa 2011/2012 or so about how much was meant to be spent on each new conscript for the Yudashkin uniform and issued personal assortment (cup, cutlery, towels, etc...). It was approaching something like 100,000 rub if my memory doesn't fail me.

    Approaching 100,000 rub for that assortment of cheap low-quality crap? They should have just had it produced all in China; 1/10th the price and the quality might have been a little better too.

    I hope the tank suit is a little better. The fact that they are selling it commercially as well as through opaque military contracts is an encouraging sign; perhaps its quality could go half-way to matching its price. Maybe.

    Hypersonic ICBM - Unique Russian Concept : Possible ?

    Post  Deep Throat on Mon Oct 28, 2013 8:46 am

    In early 1997 engineers from the Raduga Design Bureau in Dubna came out with a unique concept for ICBMs.

    Placing several supersonic or hypersonic cruise missiles instead of a nuclear warhead in a heavy ballistic missile. The designers thought that with this weapon, the Soviet Union would have been able to engage U.S. aircraft carrier fleets anywhere in the world directly from Siberia. A ballistic missile would carry the warhead into the targeted area, and there the cruise missiles themselves would detect and strike the target.
    The idea was abandoned because of inadequacy of funds.

    QUESTION : Is such a concept possible today ? If YES, what are the pros and cons ?

    Actually I have suggested such an idea myself... though my design used SLBMs.

    The enormous speed of the SLBM and then the hypersonic missiles means the flight time to target is actually fairly short... a vulnerability of cruise missile carriers is that the launch platform could be engaged before missile release in addition to the fact that the missile carrier would need to be something like a Tu-160 or Tu-95 which is not easy to hide.

    the current subsonic missiles with ranges of 5,000km mean the delivery vehicle can operate outside most air defence systems but the long flight time makes targeting moving targets problematic.

    Satellite detection and tracking of targets however mean a SSBN in the Black Sea could receive target data about an attempted hijacking off the African coast with the mothership launching small attack boats towards a Russian vessel in the region... launch an SLBM and five minutes later a single hypersonic AShM is descending at mach 7 on the motherboat, while helicopters from a nearby Mistral class carrier send Ka-52Ks to deal with the individual attack boats...

    Heck... give them supercavitating noses and let them go after submarines... Twisted Evil

    The main stumbling block will be the same as with Global Strike... how does everyone distinguish between a hypersonic AShM and a real SLBM... and basically they can't till it goes splash or boom, or BOOM.

    The price is a major con naturally - as well as actually making the technology work. How are you going to guide the thing all the way from Siberia to a USN carrier target in the South Atlantic?

    the us would be probably more advanced in terms of ambition- and funding ofc. Expect them to have prompt global strike a few years after S-500 is widespread tho it would be prohibitively expensive like stealth has been at first. Oth Yasens with scramjet missiles will enter soon and while not as prompt as pgs, smarter planning and positioning would allow them to functon like so.
