    Russia completes pop-up tests of most advanced Sarmat ICBM

    The development of new strategic weapon systems is aimed at increasing Russia’s defense capability and preventing any aggression against Russia and its allies, the Defense Ministry stressed



    MOSCOW, July 19. /TASS/. Russia has completed the pop-up tests of the most advanced Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the Defense Ministry announced on Thursday.

    "The program of the system’s pop-up tests has been completed with the positive results, which makes it possible to switch to preparations for the flight trials of the Sarmat missile complex," the Defense Ministry said.

    "All the measures that have been carried out allow for making a clear conclusion that the Sarmat missile system will be created and placed on combat duty within the scheduled timeframe," the ministry said.

    Chairman of the Military and Scientific Committee of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force Colonel Artyom Vyatkin earlier said that more than 50 assignments had been fulfilled as part of the Sarmat pop-up tests, making it possible to confirm the proper design solutions for the missile, the systems and assemblies of its launch vehicle and confirm their reliability, and also to test the technology of preparing the missile for the launch and the modes of its pre-launch preparations and the launch cyclogram.

    In order to provide for the flight tests of the Sarmat ICBM, Russian industrial enterprises have modernized and retooled their production capacities, created the necessary inventories and are making the preparations for the manufacture of a pilot batch of missiles, he said.

    The development of new strategic weapon systems is aimed at increasing Russia’s defense capability and preventing any aggression against Russia and its allies, Russia’s Defense Ministry stressed.
    Sarmat ICBM

    The RS-28 Sarmat is the Russian promising silo-based missile complex with the heavy liquid-propellant ICBM capable of carrying nuclear charges. Russia has been developing the Sarmat since the 2000s to replace the R-36M2 Voyevoda ICBM operational in the country’s Strategic Missile Force since 1988. It weighs about 200 tonnes and has a throw weight of about 10 tonnes.

    In late December 2017, the media reported about the first successful pop-up test of the Sarmat ICBM. New pop-up tests were announced in late March. As the Defense Ministry’s newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda reported, the tests confirmed the system’s characteristics during the pre-launch preparations and at the initial stage of the missile’s flight. Also, Russia’s Strategic Missile Force got convinced in the proper design and technical solutions made in the missile’s development.

    The serial production of the Sarmat ICBM is expected to begin from 2020 and in 2021 the first regiment armed with this missile is expected to assume combat duty.

    Serial production of Russia's ICBMs Sarmat to begin in 2021 — source

    Vladimir Putin in his message to the Federal Assembly declared the ICBM Sarmat had entered the active testing phase

    MOSCOW, October 31. /TASS/. Serial production of the new generation inter-continental ballistic missiles Sarmat is scheduled to begin in 2021. The first regiment armed with these missiles will enter duty later in the same year, a source in the Russian defense-industrial complex told TASS

    "The deadline for completing the Sarmat’s flight tests and authorizing it for service is 2021. Serial production is due to begin in the same year. The first regiment - two silo-launched Sarmats and a command center - will enter duty then, too," the source said.

    Sarmat deployment is said to begin in 2021

    An industry source tells the Russian media that the Sarmat development program is on track and the first two missiles will be deployed in 2021. It appears that the first missiles will be deployed in Uzhur. Four more missiles will be added to the regiment later.

    TO day that the program is on track is a bit of overstatement. The original plan was to begin flight tests in 2017 and deployment in 2020. The program, however, ran into trouble and although the tests did begin in 2017, these were ejection tests. After three tests the missile appears to be ready for its first flight test that is to take place "in the beginning of 2019."

    Back in the day the Rocket Forces said that the plan is to deploy seven Sarmat regiments with 46 missiles with two divisions - Dombarovskiy and Uzhur. It's not yet clear if the upcoming deployment of the Avangard system at Dombarovskiy would change that, but it's unlikely that it will - there are plenty of silos there.

    The new version is on track. First plan was for a 100 ton missile. This one is heavier.

    First it was planned to have a new missile with the capabilities of the R-36M2 (range and payload) but lighter = 110 - 120 tons. Later it emerged that the Sarmat would have much larger range and an even larger payload but with the same mass as its predecessor. But there was never an official statement regarding the changes and therefore a modified time line for the development. That´s why the statement that the Sarmat is on track is correct.

    Well, this could mean really long range. Orbital one can say ;-)

    R-36M2 had a range of 16.000km with a single warhead.
    Sarmat will have a range of 20.000km or so with a bunch of warheads. Or a few Avangards.

    Orenburg is AFAIK one of RVSN bases . Orenburg South Pole is ~15,800km. To get to US you'd need 2x. Of course it can go "around just to tum over Chile saving 5,000km one way.

    20000km is range of Sarmat. After that Avangard separates and flies on it's own.

    Defense Ministry: flight tests missiles "Sarmat" begin "in the near future"

    MOSCOW, December 17th. / TASS /. Flight tests of the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) will begin "in the near future." This was announced in an interview with the newspaper of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation " Krasnaya Zvezda " by the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) Sergey Karakaev.

    According to the general, now the creation of the infrastructure for the flight tests of the Sarmat is continuing at the Plesetsk cosmodrome. "In the near future, flight tests of the complex will begin, the successful implementation of which will allow starting the mass production of its component parts," the commander said.

    Karakaev recalled that the throwing tests of the new strategic missile were successfully completed. As part of these tests, the technology of preparing the product for launch was tested, the correctness of the adopted design and engineering decisions on the launch system and the silo launcher was confirmed, and the efficiency of the propulsion system was tested, he added.

    As previously reported by TASS, a source in the military-industrial complex, the first flight tests of the new Russian intercontinental ballistic missile "Sarmat" are planned to be held in early 2019.

    Rearming RVSN
    The rearmament of the Strategic Missile Forces at the Sarmat ICBM will begin with a regiment of the Uzhur missile division in 2021.

    “The rearmament of this missile system is scheduled to begin in 2021 in the missile regiments of the Uzhursk rocket division, which its predecessor, the Voyevoda missile system, is currently armed with,” said the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces.

    According to a TASS source at the end of March, a source in the military-industrial complex, in accordance with the state armament program until 2027, the mass production of the Sarmat ICBM should begin in 2020, in 2021 the first regiment with this missile should take up combat duty in the Uzhur division . The source then clarified that the regiment will initially include a command post and two mine launchers with missiles installed in them, in the future it will be brought up to its full strength - six launchers.

    I'd like to see Russia recycle the retired Voevoda missiles as space launchers, ie a Dnepr-II but with a Russian U/S and possibly new avionics. Can these missiles be refurbished without filthy Ukropi monkey-orc involvement?

    Official reveals which army's division will be one of the first to get Sarmat ICBMs

    This year Sarmat successfully passed pop-up tests.

    MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. The rearmament of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces (RSMF) with the most advanced Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) will begin with the Uzhur-based strategic missile force division in 2021, RSMF Commander Colonel-General Sergei Karakayev said in an interview with Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.

    "We plan to start the rearmament with this missile complex starting in 2021 in the Uzhur-based missile force division, which currently has in operation its predecessor - the Voyevoda missile complex," Karakayev said.
