Russia to counter NATO pressure to upgrade nuclear arsenal and build a New Trinity nuclear force

In early July, the Russian strategic missile force announced that its work on the new nuclear weapon system and its carrier platform would be completed in the middle and late 20s of this century. Recently, the Russian Ministry of defense has released a series of new weapons system video related to its strategic defense capabilities, exposing the test / deployment of these weapons systems, including the RS-28 "Saar Matt" intercontinental ballistic missile, "vanguard" hypersonic glide, "poseidin" nuclear powered unmanned submersible and "dagger" "Air launched hypersonic missile and so on.

NATO's deployment is getting closer to the Russian border, and the United States has built an anti missile defense system in Romania and Poland, and plans to cost more than $1 trillion to modernize its nuclear weapons. The Russian Defense Department defended its new or upgraded strategic weapons, calling it a means of "strengthening Russian Defense Capability" and "preventing any aggression against the country and its allies".

In March of this year, Russian President Putin reiterated in his speech that nuclear weapons could be used only when Russia suffered a nuclear attack or a serious act of aggression to threaten the presence of the Russian state. He said, "I think it is my duty to declare that the use of nuclear weapons for Russia or its allies, no matter in the middle, the short range or any other range, will be regarded as a nuclear attack on the country." Putin stressed that the counter attack would start immediately.

Terrestrial base

At the beginning of this century, Russia began to maintain a global strategic balance, when the Bush administration began to plan to deploy missile defense systems in Europe for the purpose of curbing Iran's nuclear threat. After more than a decade of development, Russia has introduced the RS-24 Yars Multi-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of about 12,000 km into its strategic missile force.

The process has continued until now, the missile division of Czecho, Dastagir and Novosibirsk has recently been equipped with the system, and the missile forces in Irkutsk and the chakl - O LA are also being delivered. The 28th Guard Rocket Division of Kozersk, located in the Karuga region of Western Russia, will be equipped with a Mine-based variant of the Yars missile. Over the next few decades, Yars, along with the Poplar-M ballistic missile, will become the backbone of Russia's nuclear deterrence of land-based components.

In the super heavy-duty ground-based missile category, Russia's nuclear deterrent force is the RS-28 "Saar Matt" intercontinental ballistic missile, with a range of 11 thousand kilometers, a new type of missile using liquid fuel. It is reported that the "Salmat" missile can carry 10 heavy or 15 medium-sized missile warheads, planned to start mass production in 2020. RS-28 will replace the R-36M Satan and RS-18A missiles currently in service. Therefore, the Salmat missile is seen as Russia's response to the US missile defense system and the Rapid Global Strike system.

The Pioneer hypersonic glider, complemented by the Salmat missile, can project nuclear and conventional warheads at a speed of 20 Mach. It can break through all active or air defense missile interception systems, and is expected to be fully put into operation in late 2018 or early 2019.

Sea base

The Russian Maritime Strategic Capability pillar was the R-30 "blue" submarine launched intercontinental ballistic missile, and was deployed on the new "Yuri Dolgoruki" of the new "north wind god" strategic missile submarine in 2013. The "Bula" range is 8000 kilometers, the launch mass of 36.8 tons, each equivalent of 150 thousand tons, can carry 6 division warheads, the warhead can change the trajectory during the flight.

At present, the Russian navy has deployed two "north wind god" class submarines, another five are under construction, and six are under the plan. By 2021, the Russian navy is expected to deploy 7 submarines in its North Pacific Fleet. The "north wind god" submarines will replace the "typhoon" class ballistic missile nuclear submarine, and the "typhoon" class nuclear submarine began to serve as the mainstay of the Soviet era maritime strategy in 1981. There is still a "Dmitri downer" in service.

In addition, there are "Poseidon" nuclear powered unmanned submergers, a high-speed nuclear powered unmanned submersible that will be carried by attack submarines. The torpedo is 24 meters in length, 1.5 meters in diameter, and a total weight of 40 tons. It can carry a 10 million ton equivalent thermonuclear warhead and can carry ordinary conventional warheads. U.S. Defense Department officials described it as a "major strategic threat" to U.S. ports, coastal military installations and carrier battle groups.

Air ejection

The main platform of the air force's nuclear force is "map -95" and "graph -160" bomber. Each year, the Aerospace Force receives an upgraded version of each aircraft, and the new technology allows the aircraft to remain up-to-date for decades after its initial launch. Earlier this year, for example, the Tu-160 was upgraded to more than 10 percent engine efficiency and a range of more than 1,000 kilometers. For nuclear loads, these aircraft are equipped with Kh-102 air launched cruise missiles with a range of 5500 km.

"Figure -22" supersonic strategic bomber, the most promising candidate upgrade fighter, mount Kh-32 cruise missile, a new type of nuclear capability cruise missile, assuming a range of 1000 kilometers, the maximum speed of 4.1 Maher.

In addition, according to the video, the maximum speed of the dagger air launched hypersonic missile is 10 Maher. The missile can carry a nuclear warhead or conventional warhead, equipped with a new seeker, and can strike a target of 2000 kilometers out of the weather all weather. It has been tested on "figure -22" and is now deployed in the southern Russian military area. (authorship: Defense Science and technology important news / Chen Pei)
