    Russians were mocked for using nuclear warheads for interceptors in the past, but they have no idea that the new short range versions are kinetic and the medium and long range are only nuclear.

    Yes, I realize that. But in the vacuum of space the size of the fireball will not be very large because of the lack of oxygen.

    Combustion and oxygen have nothing to do with it... a nuclear fire ball is not fuel burning... it is pure energy... you do know the sun is not a few centimetres across don't you?

    The heat transmission in space will actually be worse because there is no air to absorb the heat on its way to the warhead...

    So if a U.S ICBM is carrying let's say 5 warheads, this fireball can destroy 2-3 warheads and some additional decoys , but the remaining 2 or 3 warheads will still survive.

    Single US ICBMs carrying 5 warheads wont only target Moscow. That would be stupid because if that missile failed in flight then Moscow would be safe.

    Standard procedure is to decide how many warheads you will need to hit a target... Moscow is a high priority so they will probably want to hit it with 10-15 warheads because they know there is an ABM system operating there and they need to overwhelm it... so from 15 missiles one warhead will be heading towards Moscow from each missile... the remaining 70 warheads from those 15 missiles will each be targeted at a different target... they might want 4 warheads for Leningrad, so one warhead from each of four of the missiles will be going for Leningrad (hehehe old maps)...

    French and UK missiles will also be targeting Moscow too... and probably Chinese and soon German and Japanese one presumes.

    US warheads manouver small amounts to move onto target... they are not actively trying to evade interception so missing the target by 10m for a kinetic interceptor means a miss and a failure... for for a nuke it is probably too close... save some money and dial down the accuracy or the power of the warhead...

    Yanqui turds want to ban the Nudol.   Even though there are no treaties that would allow them to do this.  bounce

    The current big NATzO naval exercise in the Barents Sea is a pathetic attempt to wave the dick around to frighten
    Russians.   Like Hitler promised to do when he yapped about driving Russians beyond the Urals and putting up giant
    statues of German soldiers to keep them from coming back.  lol1

    A key element of the US ABM "shield" was its planned deployment on ships off of Russia's Arctic coast.   That is
    where they still had a chance to intercept Russian ICBMs during the boost phase.   But the clowns just assumed
    that Russia's 1990s military presence on its Arctic coast would never improve.   Reality has planted a steel-toed
    boot up NATzO's collective ass and Russia has dramatically increased its Arctic coast military presence and
    capability.   Those ABM shield boats will not stay afloat long enough to take out Russian ICBMs.  

    No amount of NATzO naval exercises in the Barents Sea will stop Russia's military development in the Arctic.

    The most amusing thing about this is that they're trying their hardest to convince their useful idiot plebs that it's only job is being Anti-Sat! lol1 Nudol is a fully fleshed out 'mobile' ABM, with a range of 3,500km and can cover an area of 7,000km in diameter. It's capable of taking out everything from strategic aircraft (B-1 Lancers, B-2 Spirits, B-52s, AWACs, Dooms Day aircraft), SRBMs and IRBMs, satellites, all the way to ICBMs in mid-course, but will primarily be used to take out short, intermediate, and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    There is clearly a concerted effort to convince the world that Nudol and S-500 are simply ASAT systems, but the truth is there is no end to the Anti-Sat systems already in Federation service: Tirada-2, Krasukha-2, MiG-31 with Kontakt, Peresvet, probably Murmansk-BM. The ASAT role for the new mobile ABMs are simply ancillary/auxiliary roles, hardly their main roles.

    I'm unsure how they would convince Russia to drop Nudol when it was the US who broke the ABM agreement in first place over the failed GBI system.

    I'm assuming they want to add it to start? Because we all know Russia will laugh and say no.

    Since when were ASAT systems "bad".   Do the yanquis expect to have the GPS working during WWIII.   That must be some
    extra fine crack they are smoking.

    And we can see the koolaid guzzling since they think that Russia will yield on such issues.

    During the cold war the obvious method to bring them to the table would be to put Pershing IIs in Turkey where they are very close so their flight time to Moscow would be less than ten minutes, so defence and retaliation decisions would need to be taken in 3 minutes or less to actually have time to be acted on.

    These days they could base their missiles in Ukraine it wouldn't help because the Russians have the defensive missiles and systems to stop most of them and they could then retaliate any way they like...

    Their problem is probably that up until now they thought they could just send AEGIS class cruisers to the arctic ocean to shoot down all those Russian ICBMs and have more AEGIS cruisers on either US coastline shooting down cruise missiles and SLBMs and anything else that wanders in to the line of fire... but now after having a chance to try it they realise it wont work. MiG-31s with Kinzhal can destroy their AEGIS ships in the arctic ocean and extended range Iskanders which are now permitted with the removal of the INF treaty could also deal with a lot of these ships too, not to mention the Russian subs they can no longer reliably detect...

    They will be in a panic right now...

    Defense contractor says A-235 Nodol anti-ballistic missile and anti-satellite system will have both nuclear and conventional warhead options.

    https://www.gazeta.ru/army/2020/06/19/13123189.shtml

    I suspect that the conventional warhead is required because the effect of nuclear diminishes in the exo domain so nuclear will not have a major advantage over hit-to-kill.

    The real problem is that a nuke set off in space sends a flash that is both intensely bright but also rather hot that could damage satellites in orbit over the interception point.

    The EMP pulse would also effect communications and ability to track targets using radar.

    While the effect of blast will be practically zero in a vacuum the intense light and heat should effect the decoys rather more than the real warheads too, but having said that I rather suspect the tactic will be that any large group of incoming targets (warheads and decoys) could be engaged with a nuclear armed weapon which will destroy many of the warheads and damage the decoys to the point where they are no longer effective as decoys so the conventionally armed interceptors can then be use against any warheads revealed as warheads.

    In five years time the defence will be even better because warheads flying past S-400 and S-500 batteries could also be intercepted on their way to other targets so incoming weapons that need to fly over defended areas will have their missile numbers whittled down on the way too.

    I mean the first country to have a real unified IADS and ABM weapons actually capable of doing the job of Star Wars will be Russia... and when the Americans think they can leap ahead with space based systems then Russia will add those capabilities to their existing system and make it even more capable...

    It is possible that the kinetic interceptor will also be the final stage of the Nudol missile.

    Nudol will be a classic dueling version of a long-range intercept missile defense system. There is reason to believe that the following three circumstances were taken into account in the tactical and technical task for the development of a new system.

    Firstly, the new system should be capable of non-nuclear interception, since the previously developed anti-missiles were mainly with a special warhead, which sharply reduced the scope of their possible use. The use of a missile with a special charge actually means the beginning of a nuclear war.

    Secondly, the system must be transportable, that is, not tied to any object or center. Most likely, Nudol has the ability to transport and deploy to a theater of operations and is located on multi-axle wheeled conveyors.

    Thirdly, the system must ensure the interception of a ballistic target or spacecraft at an altitude of at least 500-750 km and at least 700-800 km in range, that is, in near space. In other words, Nudol must have the ability to destroy low-orbit spacecraft.

    Test launches of the A-235 Nudol missile defense system have been carried out, as far as is known, since 2014 from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk Region.

    The missile defense for Nudoli is uniquely two-stage and solid fuel. At present, Russia has developed new formulations of high-energy mixed formulations of solid rocket fuel. The anti-missile launch from the transport and launch container will be carried out using a powder pressure accumulator, then the first stage solid propellant rocket engine will be launched, then the second stage, and the combat stage at the final section will be guided by shunting engines (according to various sources, or solid propellant rocket engine, or liquid rocket engine). The launch weight of the missile defense is about 10 tons.

    The developed Nudol missile defense system has an order of magnitude better performance than the A-135 Amur missile defense system, developers say. This is a completely new system based on a new element base with very promising features.

    With the completion of the full deployment of the missile attack warning system (including the space echelon) and the adoption of the promising Nudol missile defense system, Russia will regain the positions that were largely lost in the 1990s - Moscow will be able to control outer space from all directions and will have the ability to conduct anti-satellite combat in near space.


    The Nudol system (14Ts033), presumably, includes a command and computing point (KVP) 14P078, a multifunctional guidance radar, a 14P222 launcher with 14A042 missiles in transport and launch containers, a complex of communications equipment and missile maintenance facilities.

    Absolutely hilarious... talk about the pot calling the kettle black...

    A working link to the article:

    https://www.c4isrnet.com/battlefield-tech/space/2020/12/16/space-command-calls-out-another-russian-anti-satellite-weapon-test/

    But an organisation called Space Command calling Russian activities in space dangerous and alarming is amusing on its own... but.

    Space Command used the most recent incident to again draw a contrast between Russia’s diplomatic stance on space weapons and its perceived aggression behavior. Russia has advocated for the international adoption of the Treaty on Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space and of the Threat or Use of Force Against Outer Space Objects, and at the United Nations it has pushed for a No First Placement of Weapons in Outer Space resolution. Given Russian anti-satellite weapon development and it’s activities on orbit, Ford compared these diplomatic efforts to a snake oil salesman.

    Following the new test, Dickinson also called out Russia for hypocrisy.

    “Russia publicly claims it is working to prevent the transformation of outer space into a battlefield, yet at the same time Moscow continues to weaponize space by developing and fielding on-orbit and ground-based capabilities that seek to exploit U.S. reliance on space-based systems,” he said. “Russia’s persistent testing of these systems demonstrates threats to U.S. and allied space systems are rapidly advancing.”


    Russia has repeatedly asked the US to sign agreements on various treaties to prevent weapons developments and weapon use in space which the US REFUSES TO EVEN DISCUSS.

    Given the US wont even talk about such things, does that not indicate they have weapons programmes of their own and that if the US wont sign agreements banning the use of weapons in space that they should instead prepare for any potential conflict or US weapons placed in space by a country not prepared to ban their development and use?

    Accusations from a snake oil salesman to someone who knows their tactics oh so well and is clearly defending themselves before the accuser has a capability that is a problem.

    Pretty standard western tactic... accuse your opponent of breaking the rules so they can justify doing it themselves... look at the INF treaty... claims but no proof of an Islander missile they said could break the treaty definition... then after it ends Tomahawk missiles being tested just over two weeks after the end of the treaty in direct violation that bans the use of ground based launchers for cruise or ballistic intermediate range missiles...

    I guess this means the US are about to test some anti satellite weapons and put them in to service...

    That is a routine ploy in hate propaganda. Accuse your hate target of all the sins you are guilty of. And play the victim
    to justify your "reluctant" need to engage in aggression against the target.

    The problem for the yanquis is that they are nowhere near as great as they think and Russia is nowhere near as inferior
    as they imagine. American will be another "also ran" over the last 1000 years of idiots trying to take Russia down.
    But they chose the wrong time since Russia has never been more ready in the last 1000 years.

    Typical American double talk. This retarded accusation is meant for consumption by NATzOphile morons. This foolish drivel shouldn't be allowed to go unanswered, Russia needs to respond (and this needs to be echoed worldwide by RT and other Russian media assets) by pointing out that the US has possessed assets that have the same function for years. Another important point to make is that anti-satellite systems like Nudol are NOT "SPACE BASED" weapons so America needs a strong slap in the face for this Brazen Lie Rolling Eyes

    You mean like claiming a version of Iskander breaches the INF treaty so they can start loading tomahawks into their Aegis Ashore facilities in Europe and elsewhere including Japan...

    That is their mechanism for breaking treaties... accuse the other side of breaking it and then pull out and then openly break it yourself... would not surprise me if they didn't already have Tomahawks there anyway...
