The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed the loading into the silo of ICBMs with the Avangard hypersonic unit

On December 17, on the Day of the Strategic Missile Forces, in the Orenburg region, the second regiment with a silo-based strategic missile system, whose ICBMs are equipped with the Avangard hypersonic unit, took up combat duty. The Russian Ministry of Defense informed the public about this, showing the loading (placement) of an intercontinental ballistic missile into a silo launcher.

It should be noted that the silo is a stationary object, a special structure located in the ground. It is intended for long-term and proper maintenance of ICBMs in readiness for launch. At the same time, the mentioned Avangard hypersonic units should effectively expand the combat capabilities of the Strategic Missile Forces.

In this case, we are talking about a regiment from the Yasnensky formation - the 13th Rocket Orenburg Red Banner Division (military unit 68545), which is part of the 31st Rocket Army of the Strategic Missile Forces. The footage shows the entire process, from transportation to the moment of closing the lid of the silo.

We remind you that from 1988 to the present, the main armament of the division has been the fourth-generation Soviet ICBM R-36M2 "Voevoda" (15A18M or RS-20M), and now Russian strategic systems RS-28 "Sarmat" have also begun to arrive there. Note that in 1991, Yuzhmash Design Bureau (Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine) completed the preliminary design of the fifth-generation R-36M3 Ikar missile system, but it was never implemented in the form of products.

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed loading into the launch mine of ICBMs

    It used to be a state secret. And now the MO itself will show and tell. But if I, from open sources of the Ministry of Defense, provide this information to foreigners, then this will be considered high treason.

      Don't flip. Nothing will happen. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation operates by one of the methods called demonstration. A demonstrative demonstration is needed in order to show the enemy the true state of affairs so that the enemy does not draw false conclusions based on false reports and underestimation of Russian capabilities, and therefore, on the basis of these false conclusions, God forbid, did not decide to attack the country first. That is, simply, the enemy should represent the real power of Russia and be afraid and therefore not even think of attacking us ... otherwise it may illusory falsely believe in its military superiority and try to attack - then get complete destruction in response .... but it will be too late. ..that's why, in order to preserve global peace, there is a demonstration method ... so that the enemy's instinct for self-preservation (fear) is maintained at the proper level ... and this is the basic principle of CONTAINMENT.
