Russia to start construction of Borey-A class nuclear subs in 2012


America, and maybe Israel as well, are pursuing a nuclear compellence stategy against Russia with the construction of the European missile shield. Deterrence is a defensive strategy, but compellence is an offensive strategy, whereby America compels Russia to acquiesce to American wishes. The missile shield is designed to neutralize Russia’s counter strike ability, so Russia’s deterrence against an American FIRST strike would become ineffective. America sees Russia and China as obstructions to the US’s desire for hegemony in world affairs, where the US exercises predominant influence on the world stage. The missile shield will allow America to bully Russia, comply or else.
America is also being sneaky with reguards to Israel’s nuclear arsenal, since in a nato attack on Russia, Israel will participate on America’s side. Russia should ask why has Israel developed the Jericho III, an intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of over 10,000km. Israel’s enemies are within 2,000km, but Russia can now be targeted from Israel with a nuclear strike. Israel is also acquiring Dolpin submarines capable of lauching nuclear missiles. Russia needs to ask why does Israel, a country with 7 million people, need such a huge nuclear arsenal. Israel has a huge nuclear capability that America and Nato will use in a conflict with Russia.
Russia needs to start taking Israel into its nuclear strike deterrence calculations. Russia needs to start targeting Israel, and acknowledging the nuclear threat Israel poses. Many policy elites in America are jewish, these jewish policy advisors are the ones who see Russia and China as an obstacle. These jewish policy advisors care more about Israel than America itself, they care little for Europe.When Russia finally wakes up on the Israeli nuclear threat, targeting Israel, America will take notice. Russia will find that America is much more willing to cooperate with Russia, when Russia takes notice of the big picture.Once again, Russia needs to ask why does Israel need nuclear missiles with a range of over 10,000km, who does Israel have in mind to target. When Russia figures out the strategy of the global power elites, Russia will gain much more cooperation with reguards to the missile shield.

Topol ballistic missiles may stay in service until 2019

The service life of Topol mobile ballistic missile systems could be extended until 2019, Commander of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) Lt. Gen. Sergei Karakayev said on Friday.


“The road-mobile Topol missile systems may remain in service with the SMF until 2019,” Karakayev said at a meeting with SMF veterans. “The evaluation of its [Topol missile] reliability and technical condition allows us to consider further extension of its service life.”


The RS-12M Topol (SS-25 Sickle) is a single-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile, approximately the same size and shape as the U.S. Minuteman ICBM. The first Topol missiles entered service in 1985.


The missile has a maximum range of 10,000 km (6,125 miles) and can carry a nuclear warhead with a yield of 550 kilotons.


Although the service life of the SS-25 (originally 10 years) is being periodically extended, the missile will be progressively retired over the next decade and replaced by mobile Topol-M (SS-27 Stalin) and RS-24 Yars missile systems.


As of August 2011, the SMF operated at least 171 road-mobile Topol missile systems, 50 silo-based and 18 road-mobile Topol-M systems, and nine RS-24 systems.


Russian submarine test-fires Bulava missile successfully

The Russian Navy successfully test-fired an experimental Bulava (SS-N-X-30) intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday from its Yury Dolgoruky submarine in the White Sea, the Defense Ministry said.

“Today as part of the state trials program, a successful routine test took place of a Bulava ICBM from the Yury Dolgoruky submarine,” the Navy said.

The missile, the third Bulava launched this year and seventeenth overall, hit a target on the Kura test range in Kamchatka in the Russian Far East.

“The missile’s flight took place as planned. The missile’s payload hit the range on time,” the Defense Ministry said.

Bulava has had a troubled test and development, and only nine of the test firings so far have been declared fully successful.


Russia tests new ballistic missile

Russia carried out on Thursday a successful test of a new sea-based intercontinental ballistic missile, the Defense Ministry said.

The Liner missile was launched from the Tula (Delta IV class) strategic submarine in the Barents Sea targeting the Kura test grounds on the Kamchatka peninsula.

“The missile’s warheads hit the designated area on schedule,” spokesman Col. Igor Konashenkov said.

The Liner is an advanced version of the solid-propellant Sineva submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) which is currently in service with the Russian Navy. It has a longer range and enhanced missile defense penetration capability.

According to the developer of the missile, the State Missile Center, the Liner can carry up to four medium-yield warheads or up to 12 small-yield warheads, or their mixture.

In comparison, Russia’s much-coveted Bulava SLBM can carry only six small-yield warheads.
