    The trucks like the trains would not just drive around at random all the time... most of the time they would stay in guarded buildings that would be as easy to defend as any military facility that is this important.

    According to the START treaties the TOPOL trucks can't just be located anywhere... there were specific buildings they needed to be housed in normally... and it would be different with trains because START is over.

    This meant that at times of heightened tensions they knew where to start looking for some pretty distinctive trucks that would be fairly unique on Russian roads... only able to make certain turns so lots of roads they could not drive down anyway.

    Compare that with trains that look the same as hundreds of thousands of other trains they already operate and it is not just a case of trains operating at higher speed and being given green lights where every they are... and if they make them high speed trains with speeds of 400km per hour or faster... perhaps a test track in the middle of the arctic where it is military land and anyone can be shot on sight with drones patrolling the area continuously... all the train has to do is stop and turn off on to a siding and raise its missiles and launch them which would take less than 5 minutes... then it does not matter if you blow them up.

    More importantly the trains could be monitored... coordinating attacks on all the trains would need sophisticated communication and coordination... as soon as one is attacked the rest can be launched immediately anyway... For every attack there is a very good chance what they are attacking is a troop transport or cargo transport to a Russian military base or port, but those forces tasked with the attacks will quickly reveal who is attacking and where the response should be directed... a high speed train could be based in a mountain base but with a 400km/h speed they could have other tunnels all through the ural mountains where they can run to and launch from if there is any question as to who to attack.

    Adding a carriage and another long range cruise missile would be cheaper than building another silo or SSBN...

    I think there's no doubt Rail version is more difficult to target for USA, it's possible they see that as a last resort against the ABM, but we aren't there yet.

    Shoigu praised scientists from the Sarov Nuclear Center for developing the Peresvet combat laser. 


    The Peresvet laser complex was developed by scientists from Sarov (Nizhny Novgorod region), who worked under the "constant attention" of the Ministry of Defense, the head of the Department Sergey Shoigu said. 


    This was discussed at a meeting of the Minister with the scientific community in Novosibirsk, during which the scientific director of the Institute of Laser Physics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Academician Sergey Bagaev, complained that he had to actually visit Moscow every week to try to solve a number of promising issues related to the institute's work, RIA Novostireports .


    At the same time, earlier, according to him, specialists from various federal departments and ministries often visited Novosibirsk. The scientist suggested improving cooperation with scientific organizations.


    "Are you coming to Moscow to join us? To the Ministry of Defense? I hate bureaucracy and I struggle with it. We are doing everything possible to reduce the distance for science. We spend innovation days, starting with those who make something in the garage with a file, and ending with big science" – Shoigu said.


    He invited the scientist to the exhibition of equipment and weapons in the Patriot Park, where, according to him, science and the latest developments are presented "in the broadest sense."


    "Believe me, I spend a lot of time talking to everyone and watching everyone. There are several large conferences where artificial intelligence will be discussed and so on. I visit your colleagues in Sarov. Thanks to their efforts and our constant attention, we have delivered such a wonderful weapon as the Peresvet. And we already have it in service today. I, in any case, and those who are engaged in science in the department, are extremely attentive to this" – the minister assured.


    He said that the Defense Ministry allocates a lot of funds for science, so we can not say that the money mainly goes to Moscow organizations.


    Of course, we want these funds to be invested very efficiently (...) You have a 17 billion dollar research project going on here. Here you have it. Tomorrow I will be in Krasnoyarsk, where I think our research and development is ending at 92 billion rubles, so to say that everything is stuck in Moscow is a clear overkill" – the minister said.


    At the same time, he agreed that "in general" interaction with scientific institutions should be strengthened.

    Could the peresvet be used to shoot directed EMPs or microwaves onto large area

    This would be very useful in ruining the precious aesas on western aircraft Twisted Evil. Just let the UHF and lands detect the general location of stealth aircraft and let loose.
