    Sarmat is indeed a very powerful missile.

    Some queries or answers that needed  ..

    1. total launch weight 100 tons (possibly 160 tons) .. Satan missile 210 tons.Initial media specs hinted about a launch weight of 100 tons .. but now the
    true picture is slowly emerging it is a gigantic 160 tons .. 20% of 210 is around 40 tons..

    2. No of warheads possibly 10 and warhead penetration aids (EW warheads 10) total around 20.


    3. Total mass of payload anywhere from 5 to 20-22 tons.. MASSIVE ... no other words .. Bulava is maximum payload of around 3 tons.
       This means that sarmat will be 6 to 7 times more powerful than Bulava.

    4.  Shock launch system very quick ascent trajectory . The Booster will be a deep upgrade of Liner or even a new generation liquid fueled
      booster , The booster willl be unique enough to take the missile to cruising altitude ina very short interval.. thus making it impossible for
      U.S radars to track and detect it.

    5. A liquid fueled third stage engine .. that will cruise at altitudes of possible 100-200 kms .. making it  a "purely spaced based missile"

    Type of warheads

     --Liquid fueled long range warheads each weighing around 1-2 tons

     --Project 4204 aircrafts each weighing 4-6 tons

     -- Smaller liquid fueled warheads  around 1 ton each .. possibly 500 kms range (donno.. much?)
     --  possibly of using Bulava warheads
     --  almost have a software configured payload section

    6. Depressed trajectory of the missile .. flying 80 to 100 kms altitue over north or south pole. Hint U.S has very weak air defense radars over south      
       pole.

    That graphic indicates the RS-28 Sarmat will be 210 tonnes..... That's the same as the R-36M Voevoda Very Happy Significantly larger than the alleged 100T that is the usual claim...

    Thanks for the translation .. Posters cant be translated from websites ..
    That is the only problem of posters .. yu need to know Russky  to complete translation ..


    Liquid fuel technology seems to be the order of the day for Russky Strategic forces..

    Russian media is becoming more open nowadays.. detailing optimization/packaging technology techniques ..
    which the Americans can only dream about ..

    I never thought Russian media would detail such critical details .. they used to do in much twisted /opaque manner ..

    That solid fuel Bulava .. has a liquid fuel third stage from which the 4rth stage MARV are separated ..

    Liquid fueled engines (hypergolics) have better efficiency (ISP) than solids, so are a good choice for a heavy ICBM where range and throw-weight are to be maximised.

    Sarmat is shaping up to a formidable weapon system, and well deserving of its moniker "Son of Satan"...  Its nice to know that Washington will soon have another good reason to sleep fitfully...

    starting with submarine launched missiles , makeyev developed integrated engine - that is rocket engine is inside fuel tank and also had no interstage, thus reducing height and some weight .
    most of engine is imersed in fuel and cooled inside fuel tank at the bottom -turbine and pipes ,only small part of nozzle is protruding outside of fuel tank in the first and second stages.

    some known information from Sarmat from official/unofficial sources so far

    1 ) Sarmat will weigh 20 % less compared to SS-18 , I can easily say the weight reduction is achieved via use of carbon-carbon composite over Maragning Steel of 80's SS-18.

    Use of Carbon Composite means they can also achieve different range for different weight/payload ....Fuel Mass Effeciency of Carbon Composite is far far higher over Maragning steel.

    2 ) Throw Up weight of 10 T for Sarmat compared to 8 T of  SS-18   ( composite afford higher weight due to weight saved )

    3 ) Trajectory of North Pole/South Pole making it easier to shape trajectory SRF feels without have to worry about energy.

    Liquid Fuel can afford precise trajectory shaping in its entire flight and engines can be stopped and started in flight as many times as one needs something not possible with solid fuel missile.

    Isp of Liquid Fuel is higher compared to solid fuel , affording higher throwup weight.

    That solid fuel Bulava .. has a liquid fuel third stage from which the 4rth stage MARV are separated ..

    Liquid engines have the obvious benefit of being able to be shut down and restarted multiple times and also throttled up or down as needed... this is important for the final stage as it is a manouvering phase and also a period where being able to control the IR signature of the weapon is also important too.

    Navalized version of the Sarmat would be an interesting possibility given Russian 5th generation subs are bound to finnish their development during 2020.

    A navalised version of a Sarmat? Its a 200T missile.... It require a vessel the size of Pr 941 Akula SSBN to launch the 84T R-39/SS-N-20, so what would you need to carry a naval Sarmat????

    Sorry, it simply isn't practical.

    Liner is already sophisticated and capable, as is Bulava...

    I think the weight of Skif R-29 missile is around 40 tons. Bulava weights is around 36 tons.
    THe LIner which is effectively R-29RMU2 missile also weighs around 40 tons.
    NO submarine can launch 84 tons of missile. All the missiles are in the same category.
    Only this sarmat is in the range of 200 tons.IF it is 200T then it really is a monster no other words for that

    For some reason silo missiles are seen as more vulnerable than mobile or submarine based. I think this is overblown. No first strike
    can take out silo missiles unless some sabotage is done to command and control that prevents a response launch. There is plenty of time
    for the silo missiles to be launched in response to a first strike attack. The response time of the Sarmat is so small that even some
    attack from Poland or Romania will have no time to reach these silo missiles before they are launched.

    The problem is that the delusional, hubris filled idiots in charge of the USA are beginning to believe that their ABM systems will stop
    any Russian ICBMs. So no matter how good the Sarmat is they will think it isn't effective. Russia needs to target the ABM systems with
    short range nuclear missiles that have very short flight times. Maybe the idiots in Washington will then not feel so comfortable in starting
    a nuclear war.

    This missile is a monster it cannot be stopped by any ABM .. it can carry 50 or more nuclear warheads.. so many nukes exploding on any country
    would destroy the whole country ..

    U.S is seriously becoming confused/madlike after a WAVE of advances in Russian missile technology.It does not know what to do.

    I think this missile is a signal to U.S elections .. so that whoever comes to office may realize that a single launch will end the world as we see it ..

    There is yet another missile and we dont know what that is.. yasen-m missile .. sources say that they are very heavy missiles (I mean heavy compared to submarine launched missiles ..

    We yet dont know what they are.. as soon as yasen-M start coming online we may come to know .what those missiles are

    Thanks to the US withdrawing from the 1972 ABM treaty they can no position any ABM system they want around the silos.

    The original ABM treaty stated each country (USSR and US) could have one ABM system that could defend a capital city or an ICBM field.

    It also limited OTH radar to the countries borders so they could not be used as battle management systems for your own air space.

    Improvements in long range radar technology and ABM missiles means silos should be rather well protected these days. A heavy silo would need a direct hit from a powerful warhead to defeat them and even an SA-17 could damage an incoming warhead to make it fail to detonate properly... the closing speed of a faster missile like S-300V4 or S-400 or S-500 or Nudel would ensure the survival of the silos... after being reloaded a second attack could be launched... Twisted Evil

    Agreed, and this is debatably the most significant aspect of benefit to Russia of Yankistani treachery. It's no longer necessary to clandestinely build a strategic war-fighting radar at Krasnoyarsk as they did in the Cold War - now they can build war-fighting radars ANYWHERE they desire, and the US can do squat about it.

    Well the US could not do much about that anyway... it would look rather silly the US complaining that the Soviets had a radar at Krasnoyarsk... which is at least within 900km of a border... with Mongolia I think... the US radars at Fylingdales in the UK and Thule in Greenland were no where near any US border... not even close.

    The new Russian "Doomsday weapon" nears service entry


    The new Russian-made RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile to be operational in 2018.

    The first-stage engine for Russia’s Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) has passed firing trials, a source in the Russian defense and industrial sector told TASS. The RS-28 Sarmat is the next generation of intercontinental ballistic missile for Russian armed forces which is in development by the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau since 2009.

    The missile’s pop-up tests may take place in late 2016, the source added."The final stage of the firing trials was successful. Technical imperfections have been removed," the source said.

    According to the source, work on the technical documentation is currently under way and is planned to be completed in November.


    Information about the new Russian-made RS-28 Sarmat Intercontinental Ballistic Missile

    "According to the most optimistic forecasts, the Sarmat ICBM’s pop-up tests will be held in November-December 2016," the source added.

    According to the source, even in this case, the development flight tests of the advanced intercontinental ballistic missile may start no sooner than the end of the first quarter of 2017.

    According to the source, work on the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile is no less than seven months behind the schedule.

    The Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile is designed to replace the R-36M2 Voyevoda ICBM. The advanced missile’s payload is expected to equal ten tons, compared to 8.75 tons its predecessor has. The Sarmat ICBM is planned to be made operational in late 2018.

    So, it is already said that launch tests were postponed to later this year. 1,5-2 years after initial tests it will enter service. Not bad, not bad at all  thumbsup .

    I guess we will have to wait for some time before its dimensions are compared to "Satan". It looks like it has a very similar aspect
    ratio. If it is shorter than the SS-18 then it must be narrower too.

    Interesting

    The bottom great area is the solid fuel motor that will be like cold start throw up/gas generator to thow the missile out of silos , Pretty much big 1st 2nd and 3rd stage and 4th stage PBV is also clearly seen , quite massive and 10 T throw up weight is 2 T more then SS-18 that very high throw up weight that brings up possibility of interesting payload for comparision Topol-M throw up weight is 1.2 T
