Russian "Bulava" submarine-launched ballistic missile on June 28 for the first time to test, despite the "Bulava" missile test fails repeatedly, and manufacturing defects official to blame, but insisted that no Russian military can replace any missile "Bulava", and pledged to continue to test-fire missiles, until it joined the Navy, and successfully test-fired, equipped with Bulava missiles by its standard platform - Yuri Dolgoruky submarine in the Barents Sea waters launched, according to a Russian Defense Ministry sources said the Russian Navy's fourth-generation strategic missile submarine 955 first ship Yuri Dolgoruky has completed the first year at sea test, and return to Severodvinsk in northern mechanical plant to rest.
"Bulava" submarine-launched ballistic missile capable of carrying up to 10 sub-guided warhead, a range of over 8000 km (5000 miles).
"Bulava" missile submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles completely learn the "Topol"-M land-based intercontinental ballistic missile development experience, with a penetration capability and the circular error probability less so. The missile and the "Topol" shape similar to but slightly lower range, 10,000 km. "Bulava" three-stage intercontinental ballistic missiles, rocket-propelled still use solid fuel as a propellant. Compared with liquid-fuel rocket missile "Bulava" intercontinental ballistic missiles with a longer standby time, after receiving the launch command can be launched within minutes.
New missile launch weight may slightly lower than the "Poplar", "Topol" missile launch weight of 47 tons, estimated that "Bulava" intercontinental ballistic missile launch weight of close to 40 tons. The load of a new missile 550,000 tons TNT equivalent of nuclear warheads, in order to break through the U.S. BMD ballistic missile defense system, Russia has taken a bullet in the design of a number of measures, such as the installation of radiation and electromagnetic interference shields, increased bait devices. In addition, Russia is "Bulava" intercontinental ballistic missile developed by the sub-guided warhead, and can carry six, if the bait to reduce the number of words, carrying sub-guided warheads can be more than six. "Bulava" section of intercontinental ballistic missile warheads fitted with PBV (post-boostvehicle) boost system, which controls put in by the bullet, which comes through the warhead and inertial navigation system "GLONASS" (similar to the U.S. GPS Global Positioning System) receiver position. According to Russia, said warhead accuracy of 350 meters, but surprisingly, this accuracy is lower than other advanced Russian missile accuracy, such as "poplar" and accuracy of 21.9 meters.
"Bulava" intercontinental ballistic missile developed manufacturing
"Bulava" intercontinental ballistic missile submarine-launched strategic ballistic missiles successful development of Russia's strategic nuclear strike force greatly enhanced, it overcomes the "Topol" missile in the initial stages of launching satellites to detect and easily hit the United States of defects , you can launch anywhere in the ocean, the use of the submarine hidden performance, to achieve a sudden attack. In addition, the new missile development time faster than the previous generations of missiles, 2 to 3 years, which is Russia's intercontinental ballistic missile industry is not a small miracle.
Russian Navy submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles equipped with solid about the Navy submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles throughout the 6%. Five years later, with the "Bulava" new submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missile intercontinental ballistic missile after another service, the Russian Navy submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles equipped with solid about the Navy submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles 35% of the whole. If the "Borey" submarines are the pillars of the Russian Navy's strategic nuclear forces, then the "Bulava" new submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missile intercontinental ballistic missile is the Russian Navy the cornerstone of strategic nuclear forces.
