    If they can change a 40 year old missile, why shoudln´t they be able to modify newer missiles?

    Russia to put 2nd regiment of Avangard hypersonic missiles on combat alert by yearend


    According to a source, the second regiment will assume combat posture in the Yasny missile formation


    MOSCOW, February 11. /TASS/. The second regiment of UR-100N UTTKh intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) with the Avangard hypersonic warheads will assume combat alert in Russia’s Strategic Missile Force before the end of 2022, a source close to Russia’s Defense Ministry told TASS on Friday.

    The second regiment of Avangard hypersonic missile systems will assume combat posture in the Yasny missile formation, the source specified.

    "Under the existing plans, the second regiment of Avangards will assume combat alert as part of silo-based launchers and a command post of a regiment of the Strategic Missile Force’s 13th missile division approximately in December 2022," the source said.

    The Research and Production Association of Machine-Building (part of Tactical Missiles Corporation), the developer and manufacturer of Avangard hypersonic missile systems, declined to comment to TASS on this information.

    It was earlier reported that the first regiment of Avangard hypersonic missile systems of the Strategic Missile Force’s Yasny division (the Orenburg Region) that went on combat alert with two silo-based launchers and a command post in late 2019 was brought to its full strength by the end of 2021.

    Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said at the single military output acceptance day on January 20 that the first regiment had been fully rearmed for Avangard ICBMs with hypersonic boost-glide vehicles.

    The Avangard boost-glide vehicle is capable of flying at a hypersonic speed of up to Mach 27 (about 32,000 km/h) in the dense layers of the atmosphere, maneuvering by its flight path and its altitude and breaching any anti-missile defense. The Avangard hypersonic weapon was first mentioned by Russian President Vladimir Putin in March 2018.

    I believe it to be 6. The first regiment was formed with 2 units per year for 3 years. The second regiment is scheduled to be complete in 2 years so would assume production goes up to 3 units per year.

    MOSCOW, June 5 - RIA Novosti. The Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) are preparing the second regiment with the Avangard hypersonic missile system for combat duty, Colonel General Sergei Karakaev, commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, said on the air of the Military Acceptance program on the Zvezda TV channel.
    “Now one regiment (Avangard) is standing in full strength. The second regiment is preparing to take up combat duty. And this is the reality of today,” Karakaev said.
    He stressed that the potential adversary does not currently have the means to counter the Avangard.

    "They can't even imagine how they can counteract it today,"
    the general added.

    The Strategic Missile Forces have begun re-equipping the next regiment of the Yasnensky missile formation with the hypersonic Avangard


    The Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) have begun re-equipping the next missile regiment of the Yasnensky missile formation with the Avangard complex, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    “In the Orenburg region, work is underway to re-equip the Yasnensky formation of the Strategic Missile Forces with the Avangard silo-based missile system,” the department said.

    In June , the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Sergei Karakaev, on the air of the Military Acceptance program on the Zvezda TV channel, said that one regiment of Avangards was serving in the troops in full force, the second was preparing to intercede.

    Avangard is a strategic missile system with an intercontinental ballistic missile equipped with a gliding hypersonic winged warhead.

    For the first time, the development of the complex became known from the message of President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly on March 1, 2018. Then the head of state noted that the winged unit moves towards the target “like a meteorite, a fireball” and carries out deep maneuvering, which makes it absolutely invulnerable to any means of air defense and missile defense.

    In January, the Ministry of Defense announced the receipt of 11 Yars and Avangard missiles in the fourth quarter of 2021.

    Yasnensky regiment with "Avangards" will take up combat duty on December 17

    The warhead is capable of flying in dense layers of the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds up to Mach 27

    MOSCOW, 16 December. /TASS/. The next regiment, equipped with the Avangard missile system, will take up combat duty in the Yasnensky missile formation of the Orenburg region on December 17, Colonel General Sergei Karakaev, commander of the Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN), said.

    "On the day of the Strategic Missile Forces, a real gift for a professional holiday will be the entry [on combat duty] of another regiment equipped with the Avangard missile system in the Yasnensky missile formation," he said in an interview published on Friday with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.

    The Avangard warhead is capable of flying in dense layers of the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds of up to Mach 27 (about 32,000 km/h), maneuvering in heading and altitude and overcoming any anti-missile defenses. The complex was first announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin in March 2018.

    New equipment of the Russian Armed Forces

    Infrastructure for the Avangard complex is being expanded in the Yasnensky formation of the Strategic Missile Forces

    VIDEO LINK https://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/19296189

    MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. The Yasnensky formation of the Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) continues to rearm with the Avangard hypersonic missile system. This was reported on Thursday by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

    “In the Orenburg region, work continues to re-equip the Yasnensky missile formation with the Avangard stationary missile system,” the message notes.

    The message is accompanied by video footage of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) being loaded into a silo launcher using the hydraulic mechanism of a special transport and loading unit.

    According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the infrastructure of the position area has been prepared. It includes facilities for conducting training with duty shifts, combat duty and rest of personnel. “The implementation of measures planned for 2023 to re-equip the Strategic Missile Forces with a missile system with a hypersonic unit will increase the combat capabilities of our country’s strategic nuclear forces,” the report notes.

    In December 2022, it was reported that the next - second - missile regiment as part of the Orenburg division of the Strategic Missile Forces took up combat duty as part of a command post and two silo launchers (silos), which contain ICBMs with Avangard combat equipment. In the next two years, the regiment was supposed to include two silos each in order to bring their number to the regular level. The first Avangard regiment began combat duty in December 2019.

    The Avangard combat unit is capable of flying in dense layers of the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds of up to Mach 27 (about 32 thousand km/h), maneuvering along the course and altitude and overcoming any missile defense. Russian President Vladimir Putin first announced the complex in March 2018.
