    Free delivery of heat and light anywhere in the world. There will be no complaints.

    On December 17, Russia celebrates the Day of Strategic Missile Forces.

    The RVSN motto is pretty much to the point!

    "After us, silence"

    Listva mine clearing system will increase the power of the microwave gun
    Strategic Missile Troops (RVSN): Discussion & News - Page 15 4_d_850

    Created for the strategic missile forces, the Listva remote mine clearance vehicle will be equipped with a more powerful microwave gun.

    - According to the modernization plan of the microwave installation, its pulse power will increase by at least five megawatts. This will increase the range of destruction of explosive devices, " Rostec told RIA Novosti.

    The foliage will also receive a new management system and monitoring of the environment. Work on the modernization of the car is carried out by the Krasnodar plant "Cascade".

    The remote demining vehicle is designed to accompany the Topol-M and YARS mobile ICBM launchers on their combat patrol routes.

    The vehicle is based on the Bulat three-axle armored car and has a recognizable appearance thanks to the sensors for detecting explosive devices placed on the forward frame.

    On the roof of the " Foliage "is a parabolic microwave antenna for destroying mines and IEDs. Ultra-high frequency radiation destroys the control electronics of the "infernal machines" or causes them to explode at a safe distance. The range of the complex is 100 meters. For reliability in the crew of the "Foliage" consists of two ordinary sapper.

    Yes but what mechanism does it use to fire thoes bullets and why not just a PKT or Kord with a few thousand rounds?

    Ask Shoigu. Very Happy
    It is called IK.370.000-M. Maybe you can find more info about it.

    What baffles me are thoes cylinders, if they are just a bunch of sigle shot barrels then the entire turret would have only 80 rounds which would be very strange, perhaps they have multiple rounds stacked ontop of each other or a helical magazine?

    The 12 grenades are fine but I would imagine that an AGS-40 with a belt going into the base of the turret would have allowed for more.

    The company that was tasked with making the system which is used for perimeter defence and also is I think related to larger more powerful systems designed like a super CIWS to intercept nuclear warheads above ICBM silos was not a company that made small arms, and therefore had no advantage in making the systems based on existing small arms products.

    The systems protecting the ICBM fields just had to hit an incoming target before it hits the ground as a Silo would need a ground burst near direct hit to destroy... an airburst would not do it, so these systems were to either get the targets to airburst or damage them so they smashed into the ground broken and unable to explode with full force.

    The perimeter defence systems seem to be related to these rather than conventional weapons.

    I suspect the remote weapon stations for new armour and unmanned vehicles should create weapon systems with existing munitions.. PKMs and grenade launchers etc and they will start to be used for perimeter defence too, but mounted on unmanned vehicles so mobile unmanned defence.

    It could defend convoys as well as fixed locations.

    Are there any pictures of this super CIWS?

    Less CIWS and more Mega-APS.

    Yes, but ignore the drawings of the guns.

    The response time and precision needed means belt fed weapons are no use... the rate of fire is simply not high enough... so individual munitions are used... a bit like ARENA or DROZD APS systems... but the margins of error are smaller so a volley of a couple of munitions will be launched at one time with enough munitions to fire a few volleys.

    Note these systems are intended to hit ground penetrating weapons that explode in the ground and create shockwaves to destroy silos or that directly hit the silo doors themselves... anything that bursts in the air is not a threat to weapons protected in silos.

    Most of the time by the time enemy warheads are arriving the silos should be empty anyway.

    MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. The Russian military and industrial complex commenced the development of the new-generation Kedr strategic missile system, a source in the rocket and space industry told TASS Monday.

    When asked what the Kedr research and development project is, the source said: "It aims to upgrade strategic missile weapons. It is part of the work to develop a new generation [of missile systems]."

    According to the source, the project is currently undergoing the science and development phase.

    "If it progresses to the experiment and design phase, we will be able to talk in substance. So far, it is still a deep R&D stage," the source said.

    Currently, Russian strategic missiles forces are armed with Topol, Topol-M and Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles. Nuclear strategic submarines of projects 955 and 955A are armed with Bulava strategic missiles. The forces gradually adopt the Avangard hypersonic missiles. In December 2020, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko disclosed that the Sarmat heavy missile was about to enter flight trials.

    The name suggest a solid fuel ICBM, from land.

    Not to me. But I think that a new generation of solid rocket ICBMs is now possible. There has been a revolution
    in Russia in terms of solid rocket fuel characteristics. I think that this is related to nanoparticle combustion effects
    not understood and used before the 1990s. It is difficult to employ such effects in liquid fuels even if the suspension
    sediments extremely slowly. There is no mechanical redistribution of the "accelerant" in solid fuel.

    Liquid fuels are a PITA since they will leak any way they can. And ICBMs do not need the throttling of civilian rockets
    so there is no particular value to using liquid fuel.

    Кедр in english cedar is a tree...
    Topol Russian name was poplar a tree...
    That's why I think it's a ICBM and solid fuel, land based from the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology.

    There's also liquid fueled SLBM, that should be in a more advanced stage

    Correct, solid fuel rockets are named after trees

    This is just standard R&D for regular Yars replacement

    Timeline checks out

    Yars is also using a solid rocket fuel first stage so this naming convention is not self-evident.
