    Over 150 Yars ICBM launchers operational in Russia’s Strategic Missile Force

    The total number of launching systems does not increase though because Yars ICBMs are replacing Topol missile systems, according to the commander

    MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. Over 150 Yars intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launchers are operational in Russia’s Strategic Missile Force today, Force Commander Colonel-General Sergei Karakayev said in an interview with the Defense Ministry’s Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper on Friday.

    "The enterprises of the [defense] industry are keeping up the pace of delivering parts of the Yars missile system in its stationary silo-based and road-mobile versions to the troops. By now, the troops have received more than 150 launchers of the new system and started to operate them," the commander reported.

    Speaking about mobile missile systems, the general noted that Russia’s Strategic Missile Force operated about 200 such launchers that included Topol and Yars ICBMs.

    During the rearmament, the total number of launching systems does not increase because Yars ICBMs are replacing Topol missile systems that have used up their warranty life, the commander stated.

    Russia is currently withdrawing the last Soviet-made missile systems from the combat structure of its Strategic Missile Force, the commander informed.

    Yars ICBMs

    The RS-24 Yars is a Russian strategic missile system comprising a mobile or silo-based solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile with MIRVed (multiple independently targetable vehicle) warheads. The ICBM was developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology under the supervision of academician at the Russian Academy of Sciences Yuri Solomonov. The Yars is a modification of the Topol-M missile system.

    Russia is currently rearming the 35th missile division with the mobile Yars-S missile system, which is an upgraded version of the Yars ICBM, Division Commander Colonel Alexander Prokopenkov said on the Single Military Output Acceptance Day in mid-October.

    In September this year, the 479th missile regiment armed with Yars-S missile systems went on experimental combat duty.

    Before 2021, three more regiments of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force will be rearmed with Yars-S ICBMs, Prokopenkov stated.

    Russia to complete rearming Strategic Missile Force with advanced Yars ICBMs by 2024


    Six missile divisions have been rearmed with Yars mobile ICBMs in Russia by now

    MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Russia will complete rearming its Strategic Missile Force with Yars silo-based and mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) by 2024, Chief Designer of the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology (the Yars developer) Yuri Solomonov told TASS on Monday.

    "I believe everything is moving towards the situation that the old grouping will be fully rearmed with Yars missile systems by 2024," the chief designer said.

    The first regiment armed with Yars road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles assumed combat duty at the Teikovo missile division in central Russia in March 2011. According to open sources, six missile divisions have been rearmed with Yars mobile ICBMs in Russia by now. In particular, Russia’s Defense Ministry announced in September that the Strategic Missile Force’s missile division stationed in Irkutsk in Siberia had been reamed with Yars ICBMs.

    Russia also continues installing silo-based Yars ICBMs. In particular, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at the ministry’s conference call on October 13 that two Yars missiles had been placed in silo launchers in the Kaluga Region in central Russia.

    The RS-24 Yars is a Russian strategic missile system comprising a mobile or silo-based solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile with MIRVed (multiple independently targetable vehicle) warheads. The ICBM has been developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology under the supervision of Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Yuri Solomonov. The Yars is a modification of the Topol-M missile system.

    Russia’s Strategic Missile Force currently operates eight types of missile systems. They include five silo-based types: Voyevoda, Stiletto, Topol-M, Yars and Avangard. The mobile grouping comprises road-mobile Topol, Topol-M and Yars ICBMs. Russia plans to gradually rearm all of its missile formations with the latest Yars, Avangard and Sarmat missile systems.

    The Ministry of Defense disclosed the characteristics of the Yars-S missile system

    For the first time, the Russian Ministry of Defense spoke about the characteristics of the strategic complex with the Yars-S intercontinental ballistic missile. More information about the equipment was obtained within the framework of the Single Day of Acceptance of Military Products, which was held on January 29 at the National Defense Control Center of the Russian Federation.

    It became known that the Yars-S mobile ground missile system is designed to engage all types of strategic targets with the ability to maneuver.

    Over six years, the military received more than 200 strategic delivery vehicles

    Among the tactical and technical characteristics of the complex are indicated: caliber - 1.86 meters, missile length - 17.8 meters, launch weight - 46,000 kilograms, payload weight - 1250 kilograms, range - up to 10,000 kilometers, type of fuel - solid.

    During the last single day of acceptance of military equipment, the commander of the Barnaul missile division, Major General Alexander Prokopenkov, said that the division was on combat duty as part of three regiments with mobile missile systems "Yars-S". Until the end of 2021, another regiment with Yars-S complexes is expected to take over on duty.

    Yars-S is a strategic missile system with a solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile, mobile and stationary, with a multiple warhead.

    As reported , the Teikovskaya, Yoshkar-Olinskaya, Nizhny Tagil, Novosibirsk and Irkutsk missile divisions were fully re-equipped with mobile-based Yars-S complexes. The Barnaul and Bologovskaya divisions are being re-equipped with mobile-based complexes and the Kozelsk division with a stationary-based complex.

    NOTE: apparently the Bolgovskaya division is not to be eliminated like one time discussed.

    Generally it is pretty easy to find any source simply by searching for the articles title.

    Sometimes you will get a repeat of a story but they generally provide source lists to find the original...

    In 2022, the re-equipment of the missile division in Bologoye to the Yars complex will begin


    MOSCOW, December 16. / TASS /. The re-equipment of the missile division of the Bologovsky missile formation to the Yars strategic complex will begin in 2022. This was stated in an interview with the newspaper " Nezavisimoye Voennoye Obozreniye " by Major General Oleg Glazunov, commander of the Vladimir missile formation.

    "In the Bologovsky missile formation, preparatory work has been carried out to re-equip the missile division. From February 2022, we will start re-equipping it with the mobile-based Yars missile complex," he said.

    As Glazunov specified, the Bologovskoe unit is on alert on the Topol mobile ground-based missile system.

    Glazunov said that the new missile regiment, armed with the Yars missile system, will take up combat duty as part of the Kozelsk missile formation in the Kaluga region in December this year. According to him, the rearmament of the Kozelsk missile formation, stationed in the Kaluga region, is nearing completion; work on placing the Yars silo-based missile system on alert is continuing in stages.

    "In December of this year, another missile regiment armed with the new Yars missile system will take up combat duty as part of the formation," said Glazunov.

    Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed footage of the process of loading the Yars intercontinental ballistic missile in the Kozelsk missile formation into the silo.

    The PC-24 Yars is a Russian strategic missile system with a mobile and silo-based solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile with a multiple warhead. Developed by the Moscow Institute of Heat Engineering under the leadership of Academician Yuri Solomonov of the Russian Academy of Sciences. It is a modification of the Topol-M missile.

    NOTE: The Bologovsky missile formation or 7th Guards Rocket division would be the last unit scheduled to convert to the Yars ICBM.

    Trading credit default swaps on some virtual exchange may give you a lot of funny (mostly virutal) money but it doesn´t help you developing/building stuff. Even more so if the few bright minds that are left work at Wall Street and not in the tech sector (and I don´t mean the advertising companies like Google or Facebook).
