Russia fired three consecutive day of different types of strategic missiles
Data Figure: Russian Topol-M land-based intercontinental strategic missiles
Song China Global Times special correspondent reports, according to Russia’s “Independent” reported on 29 October, 28 October, Russian President and Supreme Commander of Armed Forces Medvedev to Moscow on the outskirts of 3rd Army air defense command post independence, but also the future of air and space defense forces central command post, on-site inspection of national nuclear shield strength, to observe three different types of strategic missiles almost simultaneously firing of the event.
outside Moscow’s air and space defense forces central command post may be Russia’s most mysterious air defense facilities, from a legal point of view of Russian air and space defense forces has not been formally completed, currently only in preparing for the air defense forces and missile defense forces, space surveillance systems, missile attack warning system may also include strategic rocket troops, united, integrated into a “space defense” of the unified system. Although this system has not yet completed, but its combat trials have been in full swing, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on October 28 is personally inspected the fighting strength of the system, the first is to monitor, track ballistic missile launches, to determine the trajectory of the missile, warhead landing ability. To this end the Russian land, sea-based strategic nuclear forces within a day almost simultaneously launched three intercontinental ballistic missiles, nuclear shield live demonstrate the strength of the country.
on the outskirts of the Russian President in Moscow during the visit, Astrakhan Plesetsk launch site, but also the training ground for the strategic rocket troops through the ground-propelled launch system, worthy of the Far East Chajia Peninsula, the direction of the Kura range fired a RS-12M “Topol” multi-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile (Western code SS-25 “sickle”), completed the first one strategic missile launch. News and Information Bureau of the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Koval, announced While the “Topol” missile made in 1987, as of August 2007, Ivanov has been serving the state Jieyikewo missile division, and then sealed to the strategic rocket forces of a warehouse. The strategic rocket forces and the joint space force main purpose of the missile launch is to confirm the missile in flight using the extended phase of the main technical performance of the stability of the live firing test was very successful, proved far more than combat duty guarantee period (10 years ) is still stable and reliable missile combat. Kula range report, “Topol” part of the established accuracy of the warhead accurately hit the target is assumed on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
actually in the “Topol” missile launch at the same time, the Russian military has launched a strategic missile, but this is not a land-based solid-fuel missiles, but the sea-based liquid fuel missile RSM-50 ( Western Code SS-N-18 “Pu fish”), take the initiative to carry guided missiles, sub-head, there may be three or seven warheads, in service since 1977, from 667BDR type (Western codenamed “Delta III” class) No. K-438 strategic missile submarine launch in the Okhotsk Sea waters, the submarine under the Pacific Fleet, docked base is Krasheninnikov Kamchatka Peninsula, “fisherman” Liu Qin Sike Town, Victoria Bay, fly to Archangel Oblast Canyon North Cape at the end of the Barents Sea coast “Qizha” range direction, over nearly 6,500 km away, hitting the intended target. Potential missile launch is located about 50 meters underwater, speed 5 (about 9 km/h), six waves.
Almost simultaneously, the first three should be the No. 2 strategic missile missiles flying, this is a better performance liquid submarine-launched missiles R-29RMU2 “boat” (code-named SS-N West -23), can carry four active sub-guided missile head. Also in the underwater launch, but the location changed to the White Sea waters by 667BDRM type (NATO code-named “Delta IV” class) K-117 “Bryansk” was launched strategic missile submarine, the submarine nuclear submarine under the Northern Fleet 3 13th Division units, docking base is the Saida Bay, plus quarter Yewo mouth 亚格尔纳亚 town, fly to Kamchatka Kura range warhead accurately hit the intended target. While this “boat” is a relatively new type of missile, in service in July 2007, followed by a modern improvements. In addition to “Bryansk” nuclear submarine, the Northern Fleet have six strategic nuclear submarines equipped with the missile, namely K-51 “on the map, el” number, K-84 “Yekaterinburg” number, K-407 “Novomoskovsk “number, K-114″ Tula “was, K-18″ Karelia “was. In the 955-type “Borey” class next-generation strategic missile submarines in service before a large number, 667BDR and 667BDRM Russian submarines will remain the basis of sea-based strategic nuclear forces.
current Russian Navy nuclear submarines were equipped with 160 strategic missiles, 576 nuclear warheads. Land-based nuclear forces were equipped with “Poplar”, “Topol-M”, “strata”, “Executive”, “triangular dagger” strategic missile 369, 1247 nuclear warheads. Space-based nuclear force Tu-160 and Figure-95MS strategic bombers Total 605 vehicles, 2667 nuclear bomb. Once Russia and the U.S. signed the Strategic Offensive Reductions arms treaty has been approved by parliaments of both countries, Russian strategic forces will be further slashed, in this case how to reliably ensure the strength of the national nuclear defense shield, a natural high-level national military, defense industry most concerned about the leadership of President Dmitry Medvedev visits the central command posts, air and space defense forces, the day after another successful launch of three strategic missiles is proof. In the October 29, the Russian Navy 941 “Shark” class (Western code-named “Typhoon”-class) nuclear submarine “Dmitry ? East Vanscoy” will be in the White Sea waters R-30 “Bulava “submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missile test-firing of the 14th.
