Named the worst Russian missiles

The ballistic missile has been and remains a reliable shield to Russia's national security. Shield, ready, if necessary, turn into a sword.

P-36M "Satan"

Developer: "Southern" length: 33, 65 m diameter: 3 m Starting weight: 208,300 kg Range: 16000 km Soviet strategic missile system of the third generation, with heavy two-stage liquid, ampulizirovannoy intercontinental ballistic missile 15A14 for placement in silos 15P714 increased the vulnerability of the type of OS. "Satan" Soviet strategic missile system called the Americans.

At the time of the first test in 1973, it became the most powerful missile ballistic system that has ever been developed. None of the missile defense system was unable to resist the SS-18, the radius of destruction which was already 16 thousand meters. After creating the R-36M, the Soviet Union could not worried "arms race." However, in the 1980s, "Satan" has been modified, and has received a new version of the SS-18 in 1988 by the Soviet army - R-36M2 "Voivod", against which anything can not do, and modern American missile defense system.

RT-2PM2. "Topol M"

Developer: CDB

Engineering Length: 22 m Diameter of 7: 1, 86 m Starting weight: 47, 1 m flight distance: 11000 km PT 2PM2 rocket is designed as a three-stage rocket with a powerful solid-mixtures power plant and a fiberglass housing. Tests missiles began in 1994. The first launch was carried out from the silo to the Plesetsk cosmodrome December 20, 1994. In 1997, after four successful launches started serial production of these missiles. The act of adopting the Strategic Missile Forces Russian intercontinental ballistic missile "Topol-M" was approved by the State Commission 28 April 2000. By the end of 2012, there were on duty 60 rockets "Topol-M" mine and 18 mobile home. All silo-based missiles are on combat duty in the Taman Missile Division (Light, Saratov region). PC-24 "yars"

Developer: MIT Length: 23 m Diameter: 2 m Range: 11000 km The first launch of the missile took place in 2007. Unlike Topol-M has a separable warheads. In addition to combat units yars also has a set of tools breakthrough missile defense, making it difficult opponent its detection and interception. This innovation makes the RS-24 most successful military rockets in a global deployment of US missile defense system.

IBS UR-100N UTTKh with 15A35 missile

Developer: CDB

Engineering Length: 24 3 m Diameter: 2, 5 m Starting weight: 105, 6 m flight distance: 10000 km intercontinental ballistic liquid rocket 15A30 (UR-100N) of the third generation with multiple head part of individual guidance (MIRV) was developed in CDB engineering under the supervision of Chelomei. Flight tests of ICBMs 15A30 carried out at the site of Baikonur (chairman of the state commission - Lt. Gen. EB Wolves). The first launch of an ICBM 15A30 9 April 1973. 41 UR-100N UTTKh 2. 28th Guards Rocket Division (of Kozelsk) 29 1. 60th missile division (of Tatischevo): According to official data, in July 2009 the Russian Strategic Missile Forces had 70 deployed ICBMs 15A35 UR-100N UTTKh.

15ZH60 "Well done"

Developer: "Southern" Length: 22 6 m Diameter: 2, 4 m Starting weight: 104 5 t Range: 10,000 km RT-23 MOLODETS "Good" - strategic missiles with solid fuel three-stage intercontinental ballistic missiles 15ZH61 and 15ZH60 , the movable rail and a stationary silo-based, respectively. Was the further development of the complex RT-23. It was adopted in 1987. On the outer surface of the fairing located aerodynamic control surfaces to allow controlled missile roll on sections of the first and second stages. After passing through the dense atmospheric layers fairing reset.

R-30 "Bulava"

Developer: MIT Length: 11, 5 m Diameter: 2 m Starting weight: 36, 8 tons Range:. 9300 km Russian solid fuel ballistic missile complex D-30 to accommodate the submarine project 955. The first launch of the "Bulava" has taken place in 2005 year. Russian writers often criticized developed missile complex "Bulava" for a sufficiently large proportion of failed tests. Critics say, "Bulava" has been seen as banal desire to save Russia: the country's aspiration to reduce development costs by unifying "Bulava" missile with ground made it cheaper to manufacture than usual.

X-101 / X-102

Developer: ICD "Rainbow" Length: 7, 45 m Diameter: 742 mm wing span 3 m Starting weight: 2200-2400 Range: 5000-5500 km strategic cruise missile new generation. Its housing is nizkoplan, but has a flattened cross section and side surfaces. Warhead missile weighing 400 kg may immediately hit two targets at a distance of 100 km from each other. The first target will be destroyed munition, descending with a parachute, and the second directly in contact with the missile. When the flight range of 5000 km to measure circular error probable (CEP) is only 5-6 meters, and in the range of 10 000 km is not more than 10 m.
