Avangard – Russia’s ultimate offensive weapon

The flying vehicle transcends the Avangard at 27 times the speed of sound. It also has the ability to change orbits that can penetrate any current and future missile shield.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the first intercontinental ballistic missile regiment equipped with the Avangard supersonic flight was on standby. The Russian Defense Ministry did not specify the location of Avangard’s deployment, but some military officials said it might be the Urals.

The flying supercar, which surpasses the Avangard at 27 times the speed of sound, is also capable of changing the trajectory that can penetrate all current and future missile shields. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the first intercontinental ballistic missile regiment equipped with the Avangard supersonic flight was on standby. The Russian Defense Ministry did not specify the location of Avangard’s deployment, but some military officials said it might be the Urals.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu confirmed the Avangard overcarriage was put into use at 10 o’clock (Moscow time) on December 27, calling it a “landmark event”.

According to Global Security, the Soviet Union began its efforts to develop hypersonic warheads in the early 1980s. However, due to technical difficulties and limitations of material technology at the time, the project was closed. .

After the Soviet Union disintegrated, the project quickly fell into oblivion. By the mid-1990s, the NPO Mashinostroeniya defense factory was supposed to have restored the program called Project 4202.

Until now, it has not been determined whether the Yu-71 and Yu-74 are other hypersonic weapons development programs. Or the original names of Avangard. Some military experts believe that the Yu-71 and Yu-74 may be Avangard’s original prototypes.

The development of information security is very tight, testing is thought to have started in the early 2000s. The name Avangarad appeared publicly from around 2004. It is estimated that about 14 trials have been conducted. issued during 1990-2018.

Russia was forced to launch an alternative development program that led to a delay. In a speech in 2018, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov acknowledged the difficulties in controlling the warhead. Avangard’s surface temperature when flying at supersonic speeds can be over 2,000 degrees Celsius.

What’s in Putin’s new “invincible” arsenal

So what is the modern arsenal, making the world concerned about an arms race with Washington? What is the purpose of the Russian president when revealing these “advanced weapons”? Should there be news of a new arms race?

The Russian president used a lot of graphics and video to give a comprehensive presentation and about the destructive power of new types of military equipment. First of all is a nuclear-powered cruise missile, with an infinite range and can be moved without a predetermined route.

The Russian president also introduced Sarmat, a 200-ton intercontinental rocket that could carry a nuclear warhead. This missile will replace the Russian-owned missile storage depot. Sarmat missiles are capable of striking every target through the North or South Pole. And in the video illustrating the speech of President Putin, the target of the Sarmat rocket is a place like… the state of Florida, USA.

Among the other equipment introduced, there was a submersible, faster than the submarine, two “hypersonic” rockets and a mysterious laser weapon that the Russian president said was too early. for details. There is also a fleet of “unmanned underground devices” that can carry new nuclear weapons systems with extremely powerful ammunition.

Still according to the Kremlin owner, Russia also owns a supersonic missile that cannot be detected by NATO’s missile defense system. That is as the video illustrates that the missile can “bypass” through the defense systems. At the Atlantic Ocean, fly over the southernmost tip of the Americas and fly back north.

No country has this missile. And when they did, Russia had time to develop a new weapon. In short, according to the statement of the President of Russia, “On abroad, perhaps there are no high-tech weapons like those already invented in Russia”.

For their part, many Russian military experts explain that these weapons are not really new products. While some observers say they are not even fully developed yet. “We already know about Sarmat and we know that this missile is very difficult,” said Russian military analyst Alexandre Golts.
