According to Sergei Ptichkin in the material published in the "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", the development of combat railway complexes (BZHRK) of a new generation for the R & D "Barguzin" has been discontinued. "The topic is closed, in any case, for the near future, said a very informed representative of the Russian defense-industrial complex."
In the material it is reported that "Barguzin's experimental design work has been carried out." The experiment with the launch was successful, and if urgent, our missile train will quickly become on the rails.
The bmpd comment. Work on the new-generation combat-railway complex with an intercontinental ballistic missile for BKR "Barguzin" is conducted under the leading role of JSC "Corporation" Moscow Institute of Heat Engineering "(MIT) from 2011 as part of the State Armaments Program for 2011-2020 (GPV 2020) , with the initial deadline for completing the State Test in 2019. At the end of 2014 the sketch design of the complex was approved and in 2015 the development of design documentation was started. At the end of October 2016 in Plesetsk, the first and only missile test of the missile of the complex was made.
According to available information, with the correction of the GPO 2020 in 2015, the main stages of the Barguzin R & D project were transferred beyond the scope of the GPO 2020 and were to be determined by the new State Arms Program for 2016-2025 (now 2018-2027). If the message of S. Ptichkin is true, then, apparently, the ROC "Barguzin" was not eventually included in the new GPV-2027.
Typical Russian bi-polar reporting style. So the project is delayed and they call it cancelled. GTFO.
