Russia has revealed the speed indicators of the Avangard complex


Over the past several years, NATO countries have wondered what the real speed indicators of the newest Russian Avangard missile system, equipped with a guided hypersonic warhead launched with ICBMs, are. They tried to calculate how serious a threat this development poses to the American missile defense system. Now their thirst for knowledge has satisfied the Russian Defense Ministry.


According to the collection "The main results of the activities of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in 2012-2020" (available from RIA News"), the maximum flight speed of the Avangard strategic RK hypersonic unit is Mach 28, i.e. about 7,5 km / s.

Moreover, high-ranking Russian officials have repeatedly stated that the speed of the hypersonic unit, which is guaranteed to overcome any air defense / missile defense system, exceeds Mach 20. But they were not believed in the West, since there are no such weapons there.

It should be noted that 1 Max is a number that characterizes the speed of sound in a certain environment, and it differs at different heights. Directly at the earth's surface is 340 m / s.

At the same time, it became known that the Strategic Missile Forces already have four Avangard missiles in service, and by the end of 2020, the preparation of the infrastructure for the deployment of two more Avangard missiles will be completed.


We remind you that in December 2019, the Ministry of Defense informed that in the 13th Orenburg Missile Division (military unit 68545), the first regiment equipped with the Avangard RC had taken up combat duty. However, at that time no details were given as to how many specific units of the RK Avangard were included in this unit.

    In fact, all this is extremely suspicious
    7,5 km / s. - this is slightly slower than the 1st space, (8 km)
    that is, and so Old ballistic rockets, and their blocks, and the 1st satellite, and the Cosmonauts, and Gagarin, flew on hypersound.

    Only nobody told them about it for some reason.
    Probably, the Communists are to blame here, they planted something ...

      I explain:
      What you are talking about flew either along a ballistic trajectory or in orbit (that is, outside the atmosphere).
      The avant-garde flies along a flat trajectory in subatmospheric space. The atmosphere there is very rarefied, this is enough to ensure maneuvering at hypersonic speeds and no planning, and the trajectory is much shorter, ballistic. But there are enough problems.

        Search in the internet gives 70 to 100 km flight altitude. In fact, already near space. Where all sorts of ballistic rockets fly.
        Almost from the first space, of course.

          Ballistic missiles at this altitude fly from bottom to top and from top to bottom (that's why they are ballistic, and yes, they do not fly from the first space, otherwise they will be orbital).

    Well. In manned cosmonautics, we are catching up, and in military, they will not catch up with us for a long time. Unless our technology is sold or betrayed, of course? Now these blocks are 1500-2000 pieces. do it, and then you can calmly master the Moon and Mars!

      This is your Tukhachevsky syndrome. If now 1500-2000 of such blocks are made, not that for the Moon with Mars, it will not be enough to devour.

      Are you seriously?

      What devices?
      How many manned flights per year?
      What are the missions?

                Well, argue. If I'm wrong, please provide your vision. Prove that we are not lagging behind in manned space or 1500 units. there are too many blocks. How much do you need then? Do not answer a question with a question. Prove that I am wrong!

                  I affirm:
                  1. We are not lagging behind in MANNERED astronautics.
                  2. Ahead I see no leaders in MANNERED space exploration. If you think someone is ahead, name it.
                  3. Without Russia, the rest of the world could not have built the ISS and is not able to maintain its operability now. Russia is technically able to build and maintain the new station on its own.

                  About 1500 blocks - I didn't understand these mind games. Please explain: what relation do these numbers have to manned astronautics.

                    If you state without proof, I will not argue with you. Let it be yours. And 1500 is just one goal, one block. This is not manned space exploration, this is about the war, about the Vanguard. An article about the Vanguard? Europe, England, USA, targets for the Vanguard.

                      Manned space exploration is currently represented by the ISS and the Chinese have something small. We carry only us to the ISS, the Chinese serve themselves (but everything is damp there).
                      In addition to the "Soyuz" of something Chinese and a "masked dragon" (still very raw), I am more manned ships and I do not know what the Europeans have and when I did not know when it flew.

                      And where is the lag.

                      Dear Steelmaker!
                      You claim that we are lagging behind. If we are lagging behind, then there must be a leader.
                      Right?
                      Name this leader. Who do you think is the leader?
                      I don't ask for arguments.
                      Just - name - a leader. (no arguments).

                        The top five "best countries" also include Germany and Australia. Russia is in 23rd place, our country has risen one position.

                        In addition, Russia has climbed two positions among the most attractive countries for tourists - now we are in 48th place. In terms of economic growth, the Russian Federation took 12th place in the global rating. https://www.gazeta.ru/politics/2020/01/15_a_12911300.shtml
                        Something like this. I just wrote in a line: Russia's place in the world. and pressed enter. Google gave out answer options. Try it. I'm sure you will succeed.

    The missile defense system is not intended to counteract a massive strike by nuclear carriers, since the probability of such an attack is 0. ABM is needed to destroy random single targets. The current Russian regime will under no circumstances use nuclear weapons against ANY opponents, since for the inhabitants of the Kremlin, this would mean guaranteed suicide.
    As far as non-nuclear potential is concerned, the West has an overwhelming superiority, both quantitatively and qualitatively. Some Russian wunderwafers are unable to make the weather for a number of reasons.
    And most importantly, there is no sense in the Metropolitanate (USA) to quarrel with its colony (RF), which regularly bears golden eggs for the West.

    And what is the point in all these wunderwaffles? Well, apart from sawing, of course. What, and the USSR, and then the Russian Federation did not have the possibility of an unacceptable retaliatory strike? Always was and is. So what changed the nuclear wunderwaves? no - the United States has the same unacceptable answer and it has always been the same - no S-300/400/100500 will be able to intercept a massive retaliatory strike. Then what's the point?

      The United States unleashed an arms race with a withdrawal from all treaties, tried to swing the strategic balance in its favor, and they were not satisfied with the fact that Russia could retaliate, the point of these weapons is that they understand that all their efforts are in vain
