The West was alarmed by the signs of a new test of the Russian Burevestnik missile


The Pankovo ​​test site on Novaya Zemlya, in a remote part of the Russian Arctic, is showing an "increase in activity," according to Western military analysts who specialize in studying commercial satellite imagery. According to them, there are clear signs that Russia is preparing to test the nuclear-powered Burevestnik missile (called Skyfall in NATO).


In particular, the British "independent analyst" Tony Roper published on his website photographs from Airbus, in which a Burevestnik missile container was seen in front of the launch ramp. This rocket has an inclined launch, and the container is used only for transportation. The places where launch boosters and missile control surfaces should be attached are covered with camouflage camouflage.

The container is located between two raised tracks located on both sides. It looks like he is on his cart or loading system. Otherwise, no changes were noted on the territory of the polygon, with the exception of a trailer parked at the northern shelter. It has a length of 13 meters and can be a transporter for missiles or a fuel truck for the booster section of the rocket.

Roper says.

The West was alarmed by the signs of a new test of the Russian Burevestnik missile

Another Western analyst, known by the pseudonym H.I. Sutton, noted that the likely new Burevestnik tests could be supported by three cargo ships and various small craft. Among them, he lists, first of all, the Sevmorput, a Russian nuclear-powered lighter-carrying icebreaker that left Murmansk on September 10 and, according to the analyst, “headed for Pankovo” (pictured above).

The other ship, about 137 meters long, is a Dutch-built cargo ship, one of three owned by the Russian Arctic Shipping Company (ASCO) currently at sea. Most likely, this is Teriberka. The last ship is smaller, about 85 meters long. It could be a general supply vessel. A vessel of the same size and colour, the refrigerated Geologist Pechkurov, followed the Teriberka when they were visible to ground-based tracking systems (AIS) in the White Sea on September 11-12. Looks like it's the same ships

says H.I. Sutton.

He also recalled:

Since Burevestnik is nuclear powered, such a missile has an almost unlimited range. This, however, means that after each test, it will leave a trail of radioactive contamination behind it. The new missile is one of the 6 main types of "superweapon" developed by Russia under President Putin, using a number of new of technologiesdesigned to get ahead of the United States and NATO.

      For example, calibers, the Crimean bridge, cercons, daggers, etc. Tell me what led you to write this, about a dummy? I personally have not yet seen that they officially said that there is none!

        Myriads of bubbles around electronic warfare and penny results. "Cabring" as the only way to avoid defeat.
        Hectares of plowed land around the NP, one or another position ukrov. "high-precision defeat, precision-guided munitions" (stocks of the Soviet period, not eternal, what's next?)

        I appreciate, "those who are in the subject" ... but there is a little BUT. How much they squealed, from each iron, about the SU-24 with electronic warfare, after the "impact" of which, half of the "Donald Cook" team quit. So what the hell, Antonovsky bridge looks like a colander, and in settlements, people are constantly dying. Maybe there are "farts" for magazine drones, but no more.
        Are you sure that those who are in power, who have children in the West, will really allow even the coolest developments to be applied?
        And least of all, I'm interested in "checking in." Too stupid an assumption.

    In fact, just like 2 years they stopped writing about Petrel after the accident (and previously they were promoting it almost daily), and everything is deaf and empty. Even the polished "experts" now don't say a word ...

    And here, over the hill, bloggers were able to identify in detail a super-secret box that had not flashed anywhere before !!! from the super-secret Stormcloak???

    The most important thing is to develop the latest long-range missiles and get ahead of NATO, and pensioners, for example, can be told "there is no money, but you hold on" and they will go looking for food in landfills

      Your Nata has long been ahead of you, worry about the pensioners of Europe and the states. To catch up with Russia, they will have to dump a lot of money because of the backlog. Yes, and payments for heat will drive them to landfills or to collect deadwood in forests, although this is forbidden here.

      The money of pensioners was precisely what the NATO took away in the form of cheap energy raw materials, new weapons - this is the return of pensions and, in general, a decent life. However.

      Another. ...... What did she show you? Tell me, as the most powerful NATO military bloc, for two years he could not cope with small Serbia with a population of 7 million, and besides, no one helped them with intelligence, UAVs, or weapons! So according to your logic, NATO is generally the bottom.

    That's why when they shoot a UFO or some kind of petrel, a 0,3 MP satellite image on a motorola from 2005. In all other cases, the quality is excellent. Most likely, they just sculpt fakes, and the quality is lousy in order to make it harder to expose them.
    For example, compare.

    Everything related to the latest technologies is a state secret, and speculation at this level does not add anything to the known. It goes without saying that the work will continue. Work on Zircon was announced in the tenth, and the Petrel will be a more difficult machine. The technologies that she will take into herself are not even tomorrow.

    Half a century has passed since the 70s... Power and a bunch of governments have changed. One thing has remained unchanged; the confidence of the descendants of serf serfs that "a good master is obliged to do everything for us." And give a fuck to him? even without this, oh, how well he lives among those who do not demand anything from the state and always "approve" everything in a row .... DB.

      Yes, there is enough shit like this in the shitty west. But there are pleasant exceptions. I will give an excerpt from a letter from I. Brodsky to the publisher of the New York Times (“The writer is a lonely traveler ...”). The letter itself can be found online.

      ........I did not leave Russia of my own free will. Why all this happened is difficult to answer. Maybe thanks to my compositions - although there was no “contra” in them. However, there was probably no “pro” either. It was, to put it mildly, something completely different. Maybe because almost every state sees in its subject either a slave or an enemy. The reason is not clear to me. I know how it happened physically, but I do not presume to guess who and what is behind this. Decisions of this sort are made, as I understand it, in rather lofty, almost seraphic, spheres. So only a slight sound of wings is heard. I don't want to think about it. For it doesn't matter whether my guesses go the right way or not, it will not give me anything. Official spheres are generally a bad address for human thoughts. It is a pity to spend time on this, because it is given only once.
      I was offered to leave, and I accepted this offer. In Russia, such proposals are not made. If they are made, they mean only one thing. I don't think anyone can get excited about being kicked out of their home. Even those who leave on their own. But no matter how you leave it, the house does not cease to be home. No matter how you live in it - good or bad - no matter how you live. And I don’t understand at all why they expect me, and others even demand, that I smear his gates with tar. Russia is my home, I have lived in it all my life, and everything that I have in my soul, I owe to her and her people. And, most importantly, her language. Language, as I wrote already once, is a thing more ancient and more inevitable than any statehood, and in a strange way it relieves the writer of many social fictions ......

    For information: Pankovo ​​is not a training ground, but the Pankovo ​​Land peninsula. All this, including the test station in the village of Severny (in my time Sever-90), is part of the Central Test Site of the Russian Federation. And the garrison shown in the photograph was called "Omega" until 1994 and belonged to the 10th Air Defense Army, selflessly destroyed by Yeltsin's liberals.
    Pin up to not know these details is excusable. And the author of this article, apparently, was afraid to get into the details. This is understandable: 10 of his colleagues, who tried to find out the details about this project, moved to another world in various strange ways ...
    Joke.
