Russia’s RS-28 Sarmat ICBM: Hypersonic Disaster for US Missile Defense Shield
May 9, 2017 — SpaceWar.com reports: “With its state-of-art heavy liquid-propelled RS-28 Sarmat ICBM the Russian military has obviously surpassed their US counterparts, Russian military expert Alexei Leonkov told Radio Sputnik, adding that the cutting-edge weaponry is due to enter into service in 2018.
Russia is 10-15 years ahead of the US with its cutting-edge heavy liquid-propelled RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Alexei Leonkov, a military expert and commercial director of ‘Arsenal of the Fatherland’ magazine, told Radio Sputnik.
It was previously reported that the Krasnoyarsk Machine-Building Plant – the manufacturer of the sea-based ICBMs – is ready to start mass production of super-heavy thermonuclear armed Sarmat missiles (NATO codename name: SS-X-30 Satan 2).
Sarmat missiles are due to enter into service in 2018 replacing the powerful RS-20V Voyevoda ballistic systems (NATO reporting name SS-18 Mod.3 Satan) which have been the backbone of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces for more than 25 years.
The new missile will be twice as light as the Voyevoda and will surpass it in terms of energy efficiency. Sarmat’s improved performance will equip it with additional means to overcome the US missile defense system…” (Russia in Bible prophecy is the main instigator of death and suffering during Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39, which I have proclaimed for sixty years, aided by Oriental and Islamic nations, bring total chaos and atomic devastation upon the world. Worse yes, it’s just ahead of us. Every nation I included in World War III is forming exactly as taught this global blood bath six decades ago. The only good news is that the Rapture precedes Armageddon – “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth” – Revelation 3:10. Then our deliverance as believers – Revelation 4:1 and our joy because of missing Armageddon. See the next two reports.)
Russia’s Brand-New S-500 Missile System to Have Unprecedented Damage Radius
April 27, 2017 — SpaceWar.com reports: “In an interview with Sputnik, Russian military expert Viktor Baranets specifically touted unprecedented the damage range of Russia’s next-generation S-500 Prometey missile system, which is currently undergoing state tests.
Earlier this week, Pavel Sozinov, chief engineer of the Russian defense corporation Almaz-Antey, said that Russia’s next-generation S-500 surface-to-air missile system would be able to engage targets in the upper layer of the atmosphere, 100 kilometers [62 miles] above the Earth’s surface.
The S-500, designed by Almaz Antey, is said to have a range of 600 kilometers (more than 370 miles). The system can simultaneously intercept up to ten ballistic and hypersonic missiles traveling at a speed of up to 7 kilometers per second. Speaking to Sputnik, Viktor Baranets pointed, in particular, to the unique performance characteristics of the new Russian missile system.
‘The S-500 will be capable of hitting targets at an altitude of up to 100 kilometers above the ground, which is actually the height of near space. The system’s final tests will take place at one of the largest firing ranges in Kazakhstan, given that the S-500’s effective damage range stands at 600 kilometers. There is no other such surface-to-air missile system in the world that has the same damage radius,’ he said.
According to him, among other things the S-500 system is also designed to destroy combat blocks of hypersonic missiles…”
Pentagon: Russia flies multiple bomber missions near Alaska
April 25, 2017 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “Russian warplanes last week flew a series of missions near Alaska, prompting the North American air defense agency to scramble US and Canadian jets, officials said Monday.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the Pentagon said Tu-95 Bear bombers were spotted in international air space on three occasions — twice near the Aleutian Islands and once near mainland Alaska and Canada.
The bomber missions occurred April 17, 18 and 20, and on two occasions NORAD launched fighters to conduct ‘safe and professional’ intercepts.
Mid-air interceptions are routine in international air space, and Russian jets frequently scramble to fly alongside US spy planes in and around the Baltic Sea and near Russia.
But Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said there had been a lengthy pause in such operations off Alaska, possibly caused by the enormous, propeller-powered Tu-95s having been grounded due to maintenance issues…”
