Russia tests nuclear capable ICBM


The test missile was launched from the Barents Sea (Near Norway) from a submarine to a target on the Kamchatka Peninsula near Alaska, a distance of about 3000 miles.

The launch was from the Novomoskovsk, a Soviet era submarine named after a city in Ukraine.

The submarine was designed to carry 16 RSM-54 missiles, a liquid propellant powered ICBM with a range of about 4500 miles, with 4 MIRVed warheads. The missile test fired is an upgraded version that was rolled out in 2007.

    Two more were fired – one was a land based missile, the other from a submarine based in the Pacific

    I am back from NOVA. Hawk is reporting that US Bombers ( B-52 & B1B ) are loading up with nukes.
    Right now the the Russian ‘Bears’ are on ‘racetracks’ ready to change course to areas of the US.
    The US Air Force has Air refuel tankers in the air and pre-positioned for various air craft.
    Hawk is also is reporting that many chicken farms are flooded and under water in NC.
    Maybe you have seen reports Fred ? let us know.
    Hawk also said that Russian ‘Boomers’ are off the Atlantic coast. Supposedly the US Navy is tracking, but who knows. US is displaying the Newest stealth destroyer the USS Zumwalt.
    I hope they don’t attack the power grid in the US going into winter.
    That would be ‘extreme’ bad news .

      I can confirm the dead chickens. The US raises 8.8 billion chickens a year, about 2 million chickens died, less than one day’s worth of NC chicken production.

      Who is hawk and NOVA? (northern Virginia Community College?)

      More importantly, Bob Dylan has won the Nobel Prize and Gennifer Flowers said Bill paid for an abortion

      Back during the Cuban missile Crisis, the US government wildly exaggerated the danger – the total arsenal of Russian nuclear warheads was only a handful. Not no more.

      The US military expects that in the event of a conflict, Russian submarines will cut military fiber optic cables, perhaps even using remotely controlled devices. Hope you still have your 56 Kbps modems in the closet.

        NOVA, Northern Virginia, Its like another state, sort of like
        ‘Mer-land’. Lots of Trump up the Shenandoah valley and into Loudon county, petered out in Fairfax, figures.
        Had to go there for work. Listened to ‘Plante’ on the AM radio in the rental Friday on the way back home. The way it should be.
        Hawk is a radio host on the ‘Survive2Thrive ‘ network, he does an hour live on Thursday and Friday evenings @ 7pm eastern.
        He gets back channel stuff and alarmist type things.
        He likes to yell, LOL.
        everynow and again he hits one.

          I don’t know about you, but if we have a nuclear war and I survive, I’ll throw away my survival food if it isn’t organic.

          So what is his source

          An second hand email from a guy at Diego Garcia
          – Navy is offloading bombs, B52 is painted black
          Another email says he sees F-15s being loaded up

          Diego Garcia is 1,100 miles from the nearest land. The role of a USAF close support aircraft at Diego Garcia makes no sense.

          It reminds me of Savage talking about the F15s he would fly off of aircraft carriers to bomb Libya. The F-15 is a tactical Fighter, not a bomber. It’s job is to shoot down other planes. It is an Air Force plane and does not have the ability to be based on a Navy carrier.

          Consider for a moment the geography of the Indian Ocean and who even has the capability of getting fighter aircraft there for a dog fight. Russia has exactly one aircraft carrier, mostly a platform for helicopters. It’s currently coming out of mothballs in the Atlantic. China is at least 3200 miles away. They have only a single aircraft carrier, a discarded Soviet era ship with dubious capabilities, since their aircraft were not designed with flying from a carrier as a design requirement. You can’t just take an existing plane and add on a tail hook
