on Thu Jan 26, 2017 9:03 am
A Pentagon strategy on Russia

Russia carries out the modernization of its nuclear arsenal, implementing a series of programs designed to create a counterweight to US missile defense system, which formed in Europe



In response to the US Third compensatory strategy Russia has set a priority to develop tactical and strategic nuclear weapons. This is stated in a new report from the Institute of Strategic and Defence Studies (Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies) at the Singapore School of International Studies. S. Rajaratnam. But although the Kremlin focuses on the creation of new designs of nuclear weapons in the increasingly conventional arms race, Moscow is also introducing military innovations, although a smaller scale.

News by topic: In the US Congress made a bill prohibiting Trump to start a nuclear war at any moment
"The Russian response to these initiatives consists of two elements. The first element - a resistance to third compensatory strategies using the first compensation strategy, which means priority the development of a variety of strategic and tactical nuclear weapons - written by Professor of the Institute of Strategic and Defence Studies Michael Rusk and lead fellow of the Institute of the Far East of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vasily Kashin. - Russia, which has a modern arsenal of nuclear weapons, can effectively resist innovation, the US, NATO and China in the field of conventional weapons. The second element is more ambitious and is associated with a significant technical risks. Russia began to create contrast, many US technical initiatives, developing similar national programs, however, are less extensive and more narrowly focused."

Russia carries out the modernization of its nuclear arsenal, implementing a series of programs designed to create a counterweight to US missile defense system, which formed in Europe. "Russia deploys new SS-24" Jars "and enters into force submarines of project 955" Borey "missile RSM-56" Bulava "- the authors write. - At the same time it is developing at least two new family of intercontinental ballistic missiles, heavy solid fuel ICBM "Sarmat" (MS-28) and a mobile solid-missile system "Frontier" (PC-26), which are designed specifically for the destruction of prospective US missile shield in Europe . Further, Russia creates its hypersonic ICBM main parts. And she has an ambitious program to create a modernized version of the strategic bomber Tu-160, which will be built in Kazan. Moscow very seriously any potential threats that reduce the effectiveness of Russian nuclear forces, and immediately began to take countermeasures."

Moreover, Russia is modernizing its tactical nuclear forces, which include short-range ballistic missiles, nuclear bombs of free fall, cruise missiles and even anti-aircraft missiles with nuclear warheads. "In short, the Russian program aimed at upgrading nuclear forces are at an advanced stage - write Rusk and Kashin. - Russia has a significant advantage over the United States in terms of quality and variety of delivery systems, and is able to reliably provide a strategic effectiveness of their nuclear forces in the near future. "

However, Russia has not abandoned the conventional armaments and research is approximately the same direction as the US, forming its response to the US Third compensatory strategies. But the scale of these activities are limited due to lack of resources. "Russian technologies in some areas are at an early stage of development - the authors write. - But in other areas, such as energy weapons directed action, railgun, hypersonic aircraft, uninhabited underwater vehicles, it is progressing quite well."
