the newest models in 20 years. No need to keep an ICBM functional for 50+ years. The US is going to learn the hard way
that this is not the proper approach.

The facilities which make the Soyuz-5 or Angara rocket could be making the Sarmat's replacement whenever it becomes necessary to do it. The tools equipment are basically the same and the know how is pretty similar. There is some specialized knowledge to handle hypergolics. But not THAT different. I already said more than once that I think Russia has way too many liquid rocket families for space launch and this is another manifestation of the same issue. Russia needs to handle its budget more carefully than the US since it can't just blow money uselessly like they do.

Are the ATGMs and rockets launched by Mi-28, Ka-52 cold launched?GarryB wrote:Cold launch systems means reloading is quicker and easier because there is no damage to the launch tube.
To be clear cold launch means the motor of the missile or rocket is not started till it is clear of the launch tube... their might be flames coming out of the launch tube as the cold launch system used to eject the weapon might include a rocket motor too.
Who are these people? South Korea is surviving on Russian product management techniques. Ditto for China. Most Russian university toppers in STEM are immediately hired by Samsung, Huawei and other Asian tech giants.kvs wrote:People find the product development process in Russia strange because it seems to occur from enterprises that are not nominally
focused on such development.

I gather, helicopter launched rockets cannot be cold launched. ATGMs probably. Not sure though.
I think they should tell the EU to insert their car regs up Ursula dan ver Hairgel's date ....

But a number of helicopter launched rockets being used by both Russia and NATO are precision guided. So they don't need to follow a ballistic path. Yet these rockets are not cold launched.GarryB wrote:Rockets are generally hot launched and follow a ballistic path so the shift in weight as the rocket fuel burns is accounted for in the ballistic charts or ballistic aiming tables for them

I think ... my gutfeel is probably right
this maglev train is a spinoff of a proposed rocket launch system

In June, he told TASS that the Sarmat silo is a complex engineering structure that guarantees the safety of the missile both when hit by conventional high-precision weapons and nuclear ones.
exhibition drills and display will be held on the territory of JSC "Krasmash", which is a manufacturer of missiles
MOSCOW, 23 September. /TASS/. Roskosmos plans to conduct a training and demonstration of the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile to the American inspection team by February 20, 2024. The corresponding application is published on the public procurement website .
"The name of the stage, the content of the services: training and conducting the procedure for displaying the RS-28 ICBM (Sarmat ICBM - TASS note) to the American inspection team. <...> The term for the provision of services from the date of conclusion of the state contract: but not earlier than May 20, 2022 year to February 20, 2024," the terms of reference say.
The document specifies that the purpose of the work is to fulfill international obligations. Training and display will be carried out on the territory of JSC "Krasmash", which is a manufacturer of missiles.
Among the planned works, it is noted "preparation and display in demonstration rooms (on sites) of display elements (rocket assembly without warhead on a rack, first stage on a rack, transport and launch container on a railway platform)".
The Sarmat missile was developed at the State Missile Center named after VP Makeev, whose main specialization is the development of sea-based intercontinental ballistic missiles. According to experts, the RS-28 Sarmat ICBM is capable of delivering a multiple reentry vehicle weighing up to 10 tons to anywhere in the world, both through the North and South Poles.
GarryB wrote:I suspect he means it is hardened to survive near misses by nuclear weapons and that level of strength means it would take a direct hit by a conventional weapon to do some damage, and that likely Active protection systems on the base should prevent direct hits.
perhaps also course correction once missile is hit...
