New Russian rocket — a headache for the West

It became known that the Russian military experts have developed a supersonic missile: it can reach the UK in 13 minutes.

The Daily Mail reports that “the object 4204” has been launched for a few thousand miles — base “Clear” to Kamchatka in the far East. The Kremlin said that the launch was successful.

Experts say that the missile cannot be controlled by us missile defense system, because it reaches such a high speed that its virtually impossible to intercept.

The new missile weaponry makes an atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, “child’s play”.

Rocket “Sarmat”

Also recently revealed that Russia in the near future it will be the most powerful nuclear missiles, capable of destroying an area the size of France or Texas. To the West coast of the U.S. they are able to fly for 12 minutes. They will be ready by 2018.

Will be shown a new supersonic rocket “RS-28 (Sarmat)”, “the Satan-2” by NATO classification. Rocket “RS—28” is capable of speeds up to 4.3 miles (7 kilometers) per second and is designed to provide anti-missile shield. It can deliver warheads up to 40 megatons, which is nearly two thousand times more than the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

It is reported that it is planned to launch serial production of these missiles — based on the old model of “SS-18 (Satan)”.

According to the Government and to photos, common electronic “center of designing missiles,” missile “Sarmat” carries 16 nuclear warheads. On its ability to evade radar and hit a large area and writes the newspaper “Izvestia”.

Intercontinental ballistic missile “YARS RS-24” appeared on red square during the Victory Day celebrations, but without any signs of modification to the “RS-28 (Sarmat)”. Missiles with a range of up to 6213 miles (10 thousand kilometers) will allow Moscow to attack London and other European countries, as well as access to the West and East coast of the United States.

Old weapons

Igor Sutyagin, a military expert, says the following: “Rocket “SS-18″ has been under development for more than 30 years, and has already scheduled the date of sale.”

Thus, even if will improve relations between Russia and NATO, a desire to modernize the missiles will disappear and Putin will be happy to emphasize the unpredictability and the results of this work.

Sutyagin added: “the missile defense System is difficult to detect the missile not only because of its speed, but its difficult path.”

The Russian defense Ministry plans to complete the development of the “RS-28” to the end of 2018 and get rid of the last sample of “SS-18” by 2020.

We have already witnessed tensions between Russia and the West, when the Prime Minister of great Britain Teresa may criticised Putin for his rejection of Western efforts to resolve the Syrian crisis.

Local production

Igor Sutyagin also said that Russian missiles SS-18 was developed in Soviet times, in 1988, the factory in Dnepropetrovsk. Missile complex “RS-28” developed at the plant named after Khrunichev.

In NATO classification no match rocket “RS-28”, except “aegis Ashore” (Aegis — the American ship multifunctional combat information and control system — approx. TRANS.).
