    Russia makes prototype of new ballistic missile, tests planned for spring 2016 — source



    MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. Russia’s strategic missile force has successfully tested an inter-continental ballistic missile Topol with an advanced warhead, the Defense Ministry’s strategic missile force spokesman Colonel Igor Yegorov has said.

    "At 15:12 Moscow time the strategic missile force test-launched an inter-continental ballistic missile RS-12M Topol from the Kapustin Yar test site in the Astrakhan Region," Yegorov said.

    According to the official, the purpose of the launch was to test an advanced warhead of the inter-continental ballistic missile.

    "The missile’s dummy warhead hit a hypothetical target at the Sary-Shagan proving ground, in neighboring Kazakhstan. The accuracy was within the expected parameters," he said.

    This is not the first launch of the Topol missile this year. At the end of August an RS-12M missile was launched from Kapustin Yar for the same purpose of testing a new warhead. And at the end of September a Topol missile was launched from Russia’s northern test site Plesetsk during a routine testing of the Armed Forces’ control system.

    Breaking: Russia Tests New Hypersonic Cruise Missile

    Russia has apparently started testing a new hypersonic cruise missile called the 3M22 Zircon. The new weapon will equip Moscow’s modernized Project 11442 Kirov-class nuclear-powered battlecruisers and its next-generation nuclear submarines.

    “The tests of the hypersonic Zircon missiles have begun using a ground-based launching site,” a Russian defense industry source told state-owned RIA Novosti media outlet.

    The new missiles Mach 5.0-Mach 6.0 would replace the Pyotr Velikyi’s and its sister ship Admiral Nakhimov’s existing390-mile range P-700 Granit supersonic anti-ship missile armament. While the Zircon range will likely be shorter—about 250 miles—its sheer speed will make it extremely difficult to intercept with current missile defense technology.

    Moscow plans to refit the two giant warships with ten 3S-14 vertical launch systems—each of which carries eight rounds. The addition of the 3S-14 would enable each ship to carry eighty cruise missiles onboard. The ships would carry a mix of Zircon and long-range Kalibr cruise missiles.

    The Zircon will also be used onboard Russia’s next-generation nuclear attack submarines. The RIA Novosti report suggests that the new submarine project is called Husky—which was previously unreported.

    @randomradio The article fails to say anything about the kind of propulsion system involved. But either way, I guess that's one step closer to realizing the techs for BrahMos-II and other Hsonic CMs.

    It is most definitely a scramjet.

    Russia has completed the conceptual design of a 6th generation hypersonic stealth fighter and a prototype could fly between 2022 and 2025

    Russia is developing a sixth generation hypersonic stealth fighter. The plan is for a prototype to make its first flight between 2022 and 2025.

    Vladimir Mikhailov—a former commander of the Russian Air Force—told the news agency that UAC has already completed the concept definition for the new warplane. Indeed, research on the new sixth-generation fighter—to include engineering design—is well underway according to Mikhailov. Mikhailov added that Russia plans to equip the prospective new warplane with long-range hypersonic missiles.

    The Russians have not yet completed with fifth generation stealth fighter and they have funding issues for new military projects.

    The Russians are not just aiming to equip the new fighter with hypersonic weapons; Moscow is designing its sixth-generation airframe to be capable of hypersonic speeds. “It will be hypersonic at several Mach, single-seat, invisible to the enemy, super-maneuverable, multifunctional and made of composite materials,” Mikhailov said. “The aircraft will have a cockpit, but will be able to fly with both a pilot and without a pilot. That is, it will combine a manned and unmanned variant.”

    The first inklings that the Russians were attempting to develop a new sixth-generation aircraft came earlier this year in March when Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev, commander of the Russian Air Force, said that work on a sixth-generation fighter—that would be built in manned and unmanned variants—was already underway. At the same time, Russian deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin said that Sukhoi had presented him with relatively mature design concepts for a new sixth-generation fighter.

    Am guessing 'maneuverable' means autopilot controls @ hypersonic. Near impossible for a human to fly through the excruciating 'g's.

    The human will still be flying through them, autopilot or not.

    Not really. Space Shuttle and reentry vehicles touch speeds of mach 25 during reentry.

    This Russian spacecraft may have a top speed of mach 10.

    Warplanes do a lot of evasive acrobatics unlike say a soyuz.

    The higher the speed, the lower the maneuverability. So at such high speeds, the Gs pulled will be much lower. Maneuverability on hypersonic jets will be more gradual.

    Several types of anti-ballistic shield protect US naval expeditionary groups and zones of landing for troops from transport ships. The first is the naval system AEGIS armed with SM-3 block 1b mounted on US destroyers and cruisers AEGIS, plus anti-ballistic shields in Poland and one in Romania. The second is the mobile THAAD system of the US land forces, defending landing zones. Add to this the mobile long-range missile anti-aircraft batteries like Patriot with anti-ballistic capabilities against missiles that are in their final stage of the path, under an altitude of 35,000 meters.

    The premise from which Russian experts started building hypersonic vehicles was that American antiballistic missiles cannot intercept any projectile flying in the mesosphere (at altitudes of 35.000- 80.000 meters), and that Russia has a number of very powerful rocket engines

    Russian hypersonic weapons

    The main Russian hypersonic weapon are derived from space glider Yu-71 (Project 4202), which flew during tests at a speed of 6000-11200 km/h over a distance of 5,500 km at a cruising altitude below 80,000 m, receiving repeated pulses from a rocket engine to climb, execute maneuvers and cornering trajectory. It is estimated that the glider is armed with warheads that are spatially independent, with autonomous guidance systems similar to the air-ground missiles Kh-29 L/T and T Kh-25 (which provides a probable deviation of 2-6 m). Although it may take nuclear warheads, the space glider will be armed with conventional warheads and will be powered by a rocket launched normally from nuclear-powered Russian submarines.

    Another variant of the hypersonic weapon derived from the Yu-71 would be those launched from the Russian military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A (II-476). Since 50% of the missile’s fuel is spent solely on take off and rising though the layers of extremely dense atmosphere of up to 10,000 m, mass launcher and glider space represents 50% of the rocket carrier used to launch from nuclear-powered submarines.

    The second type of weapon different from hypersonic spatial glider is the Zirkon 3M22 missile, which is launched from maritime patrol aircraft. Zirkon has a speed of Mach 6.2 (6500 km/h) at a cruising altitude of 30,000 m and a kinetic energy at impact with the target 50 times higher than existing air-ship and ship-to ship missiles.

    If the first wave does not destroy the targets, the second wave of hypersonic weapons will be launched on the US naval groups when they are located 1,000 km from the eastern shore of the Atlantic Ocean. The attack will be launched from the Russian submarines in the Barents Sea or Plesesk base of strategic missiles, located near the Arctic Circle and the White Sea.

    The third wave of hypersonic attack will be executed by missiles 3M22 Zirkon launched on American naval groups when they would be in the Skagerrak strait (crossing the North Sea to the Baltic Sea), on the assumption that NATO is attacking Russia through the Baltics. If the American expeditionary naval group head to the Black Sea, it will be hit by the third wave of hypersonic weapons in the Bosporus and Dardanelles straits.
