In Russia, preparations for testing the Burevestnik rocket were noticed


Russian bloggers noticed preparations for testing a promising intercontinental cruise missile with a 9M730 Burevestnik nuclear power plant (NATO codification - SSC-X-9 Skyfall).


Probably, flight tests of the Petrel are currently underway at the Kapustin Yar training ground. Two zones are closed for aviation flights for the period from June 22-27 from 8:00 to 23:00. These zones are marked in red, and in blue - a constant no-fly zone above the polygon.

- Evgeniy Maksimov said in a Twitter account.

Suspicion is caused by the attachment of the closed zones to the RFNC-VNIIEF site, presumably they are experiencing Burevestnik. It is also suspicious the release of separate NOTAMs for zones, and so included in the restricted area above the landfill, this happens rarely and for some special reasons

- he explained.


For clarity, NOTAM is a notice sent by telecommunication equipment containing information on the commissioning, condition or change of any aeronautical equipment, services and regulations, or hazard information that is important to flight operations personnel.

We remind you that practically nothing is known about the Petrel. For the first time, the existence of this missile was announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin during his message to the Federal Assembly on March 1, 2018.

In August 2018, satellite images of the 4th State Central Interspecific Test Site (Kapustin Yar) were uploaded to the Network. It was clarified that for the period 2014-2016 a new complex was built there. The starting position with a buried fuel storage, a movable shelter for the launcher and a platform for placing containers were recorded in the pictures equipment providing tests and starts.


Then it was suggested that initial testing of the Petrel was carried out on the site without the use of a nuclear power plant. Personnel training is also held there, and it is on this site that the pilot combat duty of the Petrel will be deployed after the tests are completed.

    Yeah. Where? Kapustin Yar! And if it explodes or breaks? Perhaps it is better to conduct tests of this "bird" over the sea? So to speak, over neutral waters. bully There, the engine oh is not a surprise for the environment and for the population over whom it flies. repeat No, well, who is against it, let them ask them to fly over their summer house or house, even if they are running out of fuel. At least every day replacing each other.

      Which population? ..this is a landfill, steppe. From 1957 to 1962, nuclear weapons were tested there.

        Where is the distance Petrel should go? Is Kapustin Yar a cord model? Chew, what is the cord model? wink And what the Petrel should logically be able to do. Navigation. Control. Or can the landfill replace the entire planet?

          Just chew well, otherwise you can choke.
          Think you are smart? Then maybe I heard something about suborbital trajectories?

    Tests of all aircraft begin with short approaches and flights. That's when it comes to range tests, then they will launch Kura at the training ground.

    Not nuclear weapons, but missiles were tested in Cap. Yaru. From it to Volgograd 105 km. Still experiencing.
  • Good news!

      Than? What will the Petrel proudly fly over your house? During tests over their territory. laughing wassat Yes, even hang over your house. God forbid. Your neighbors have nothing to do with it: And their children are not to blame for the fact that they have such a neighbor. fool

        Do you have facts that the tested equipment flies there over settlements? Or is it you for a red word and escalating panic?

    In the 60s, the Americans abandoned such devices just because of environmental problems, the engine left a radioactive trail, and even in the event of an accident, Chernobyl did not smile at anyone. Interestingly, I somehow managed to solve it. It seems, then they said that, in principle, it is impossible to solve these problems.

      - I read another. They just coped with the environment, but they could not get the necessary thrust of nuclear engines. If interesting:

        It’s the same here. Direct-flow are the most efficient and have a smaller mass, but they are very phonite, with cooling they are much less efficient and weigh more. For a cruise missile of a limited size, the second option was unacceptable and it is difficult to assume that something had fundamentally changed. A direct-flow engine was created for SLAM. In any case, accidents are not excluded and missiles at the end of the path usually hit the target, even a full test and exercises are difficult to carry out.

      I propose to cut military pensions and pensions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs as absolutely unnecessary. All the same, they themselves are not capable of anything. Whine the first to start about "get up, the country is huge." If anything. And at their expense to experience any such garbage. laughing The Russians, however, have never seen protection from the Russian army from the word. All sorts of vacationers there. Yes. But this was not the army. Sense of the Russian army? For Russians ANYTHING! Zero without a stick. negative They are like "vacationers" wassat laughing just hang out for grandmas like Wild Geese. All. All the rest. Yes, all this garbage was seen and observed for many years.

    And then they declared that they already are, now they say that they are only preparing.
    They got it wrong completely.
    Another type of missile is good for public relations and bad for business.

    Someone needs to cut their fingers ... I think, in parallel with the development of nuclear engines, you need to invest in drunk Russophobia, crap verbal droppings on our sites. I think that after a couple of exponential sweeps, the number of trolls with an unwashed mouth will significantly decrease. Go sing hosannas to your masters. They will send you benefits.
