    Russia May Create Its Own Prompt Global Strike System: Defense Ministry
    MOSCOW, September 10 (RIA Novosti) - Russia might develop its own prompt global strike capability, but will adhere to a defensive doctrine in the development of strategic weaponry, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said Wednesday.

    «Russia can and will have to do it, but we will focus on the development of systems to counter these new types of weaponry because the main military doctrine of our country is of a defensive nature, and we are not planning to change it," Borisov told reporters after a government meeting on the development of the state arms procurement program for 2016-2025.

    AFAIK the extended range estimates for the Kh-101 and Kh-102 is because the Russians have developed a new more powerful but also more fuel efficient engine for cruise missiles to replace those made in the Ukraine for older Soviet missiles.

    Prospective view of the Russian cruise missile X-101

    1. Yes, we believe that the rocket engine is similar to the rocket X-55 engine, it is pulled out of the fuselage after the launch, along with the opening of the wings.

    2. EPR? The engine is likely to most corners of the missile shield frame, which is made canonically - is in the form of reduced ESR.

    3. The rocket was to enter the Air Force in 2013, but for that there is no evidence. Of course, advances in privacy - our all, but dozens of rockets - not a needle and even a foe surely be feared, but ... silence.

    4. curious moment - one time there was a hypothesis about using a rocket X-101 propeller-fan motor. Perhaps such a project existed on paper, but in general it is even doubtful.

    5. Conversion of the Kh-101 cruise missile universal for different launch platforms - aircraft, submarines, ships, etc. until just it seems extremely doubtful, but the media write about the pr.885 perspective. However, their right.

    As for the new design - it's not perfect and has seen some of the shortcomings of interpretation. Let's wait for the critics, the facts, and I'll update.

    ps in the media usually mention the Su-34 - I do not believe, but the facts do not ... modernized Tu-22M also is not lit the rocket. As the Tu-160.

    Radar.

    Is this a serious question?

    Voronez radar can now detect cruise missiles, not just ballistic. That is an example.

    Sivkov: cruise missiles X-101 could be used for the first time in Syria

    Russian combat aircraft to Syria for the first time can use the new super-powerful vacuum bomb, weighing about 40 tons, also the president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Konstantin Sivkov.

    MOSCOW, November 18 - RIA Novosti. The newest cruise missiles X-101, never before used in combat may have been involved in the air strikes inflicted on the eve of the air and space forces of the Russian Federation on the positions "of the Islamic state" in Syria, said RIA Novosti Wednesday, the president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Konstantin Sivkov.

    He was commenting on reports by some media, according to which the Russian strategic bombers Tu-95MS, involved in the operation of the RF videoconferencing in Syria from November 17, allegedly fired on the positions of the IG cruise missiles X-101, which was their first combat use in history.

    "Most likely, all was well. On the one hand, it is an act of intimidation LIH, and the other - testing new weapons. It is one thing - to make education one or two launches of missiles, and the other - its combat use," - said Sivkov.

    The interviewee noted that the X-101 missile could be launched from the territory of Russia, as its range of defeat is more than 5000 kilometers, twice the range of the missile, "Caliber", launched by IG from the Caspian Sea. However, to date, ground launchers for such missiles there.

    "The launch of this missile can be carried out with at least a height of 3 thousand meters, maximum - 12 thousand meters, provided that the aircraft is moving at a speed of 900 kilometers per hour. In contrast to the land- and sea-based at the X-101 is not the start of the engine, so it should be to drop from the air, so that it already had an initial speed "- said the expert.

    According Sivkova during operation videoconferencing in Syria can be tested, and other advanced weaponry.

    "I think that for the first time in Syria, can be used a new heavy-duty vacuum bomb, weighing about 40 tons with an explosive capacity of about 400 tons of TNT. There may also be tested in action guided aerial bombs caliber big weight of 1.5 tons," - he said.

    According to open sources, advanced cruise missiles X-101/102, which differ from each other warhead (non-nuclear and nuclear respectively) were developed by Engineering Design Bureau "Raduga" in the period of 1995-2013 years. The missile has a launch weight of 2.4 tons, range of lesion - 5500 kilometers. Currently, they are mass-produced for strategic missile-carrying bomber Tu-95MS.

    Why do you consistently post garbage?  All you are doing is posting links to: "look what these people say about Russians.  They are stupid according to these people!!!"  No one cares.  Stop flooding this forums with garbage yahoo news.

    1 Failed? Oh noes!   We can point to countless western failures.   But that isn't the point of the forums and isn't the point of the discussion about what westerners think.

    If you want to be insistent on posting garbage about it, here you go: http://www.russiadefence.net/t2433p360-western-propaganda#142675

    Otherwise, use credible sources.

    I guess the key here is:

    1) whether this was actually a cruise missile

    2) what are the details of the missile and whether it is a prototype.

    The rest is trash. We already know from official sources that 15% of US cruise missiles failed in 1999 during the NATO
    gang rape of Serbia. Yet one never hears about any test failures in the USA. This suggests testing in remote regions.
    Russia has plenty of remote regions, yet we are to believe that it sends its test missiles near villages. Obvious BS.
    If someone is going to claim that this missile veered off course for 100s of kms I will call BS again. The missile would
    crash long before it could get that far.

    So the Yahoo story is BS.

    There was a test crash, it was on Tass. It hit near a city and claimed it damaged a house. But afterwards the government said no actual damage occured and investigation ongoing for failure.  We know that 2 failed over over 30 launched in Syria so not unheard of.  And the results are better than NATO. Thats to say, not much more info on it.

    I know a Bosnian lad, He lives in Sarajevo. Just outside his village there was a failed cruise missile. I met him when I was in Albania, He also told about some NATO bombs landing on civilian areas on purpose. If you ask me I say Russian cruise missiles are more reliable then any out there.

    The testing area is apparently known.  Whatever happened with the cruise missile is probably guidance went wacky.  This shit does happen and good thing it does as it will determin what caused it.  Russia is in middle of import substitution, especially electronics so this will help them in long run (I am certain that all missiles components are domestic).  Although, I agree there needs to be better areas to do this.

    New Fuel Increases Range of Russian Cruise Missiles by 185 Miles

    A new propellant could be used in the engines of hypersonic strategic cruise missiles to increase their range by up to 300 kilometers (185 miles), Russian Deputy Defense Minister Dmitry Bulgakov said Tuesday.

    "Over the past few years, Decylin-M fuel, which enables the range of strategic cruise missiles to be increased by 250-300 kilometers, began to be used by the Russian Armed Forces," Bulgakov told reporters.

    Cruise missiles are widely used in Russia's anti-terrorist campaign in Syria, which is being conducted at Damascus' request. On October 7, the first launch of Kalibr cruise missiles (NATO reporting name SS-N-27 "Sizzler"), used in the Syrian air campaign, was conducted from the Caspian Sea. All the missiles reached their targets, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

    How will Kh-101, having a 5000 km range fare against moving targets, like ships. Against a fixed target, guidance is easy and we've seen they tested it out in Syria. Don't you think Guidance will be the problem with this kind of missiles against moving targets?

    Can we've ASM dedicated Kh-101/102 also ?

    It has some potential against moving targets because it has terminal homing.

    If it has sensors that detect enemy radar emissions and an IR sensor that can detect heat signatures then it could be used against moving targets but the real problem is that the time it takes to travel 5,000km means even a slow moving target can move a great distance.

    Options including flying at medium height scanning large areas with IR and passive radar sensor to find target... or a search pattern based on the last known location of the target to allow the target to be reacquired when the missile gets there.

    would be less of an issue for a much faster missile like a hypersonic weapon.

    MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Russia’s Kh-101 cruise missiles, which a Tupolev-95MSM bomber used against terrorists in Syria for the first time on Thursday, have a circular error probable of no more than seven meters, the editor-in-chief of the Arsenal Otechestva (Arsenal of the Fartherland) magazine, Viktor Murakhovsky told TASS.

    Russian aviation developed Ultra-long cruise missile

    Cruise missile designed for long-range strategic modernized Tu-160m2, said in an interview with news agency RNS scientific director of FSUE "GosNIIAS" Academician Yevgeny Fedosov.

    "Now I lay in the draft modernized Tu-160M ​​rocket so-called X-DB - long range. The range of her secret. It is known that its predecessor - the rocket X-101 with the usual charge has a range of 3 thousand. Km. The new rocket range will be much more "- Fedosov said.


    Cruise missile Kh-101 launcher turret in the inner compartment of the strategic bomber Tu-160


    According yo Fedosov, "today delineated concept: not to introduce long-range aviation aircraft in the enemy's air defense zone."

    "It has to work outside this zone, and the weapon enters the zone. If such an aircraft carries a lot of weapons, it starts to work again the principle of the information degradation in air defense. Without going into the enemy's air defense zone, and launching missiles there, we dictate the direction of impact, time and density. And if you have a good scout enemy air defenses, then we will always find a bottleneck and throw it in the throat of the grouping. If we are talking about a strategic nuclear strike, then at least one missile has always held. And this will be enough, "- Fedosov said.
