This is a test of the Minuteman III missile system. The war heads were replaced with instruments to give the test personnel more accuracy readings of the flight.

its amazing they are coming in at the speed they have with out burning up




sadly the its not a HD video.

Obama had all but one warhead removed from the missiles. Only one reentry vehicle now per MM.

hmm i did not know that. maybe that war head is the new one they were working on. I dont know why you would handicap the missile so much with out something better to replace it

very interesting. i guess at a point you can only nuke you enemy so many times before they are vaporized and with high accuracy weapons and small CEP's you dont need multiple huge warheads o

Yeah, but the 12 Ohio class submarines that prowl the oceans still have 24 Trident misles that have 12 thermonuclear MIRV on them.
That's 288 warheads to boat.
And half of the boomers are always on patrol.
That is one terrifying weapon system.

The most photogenic launch ever from Vandenburg?

Oh man does all that equipment look expensive. Endless amounts of money.

Thanks for the video.

When I was at Vandenberg AFB training to launch those suckers, they had a high-speed photo on one of the walls in a hallway showing a warhead actually slamming through the front door of a target building mock-up on Kwajalein Atoll. That's pretty accurate even before GPS.

Doesn't that make just one of our Ohio class boat the 5th most powerful nuclear power on the planet?

Yes in effect they are the 5-17th in terms of total nuclear power. Plus unlike alot of other countries these subs have a CEP of under 90m making it the perfect first strike weapon.

Great video thanks for sharing. Those impact videos where something special it gives you a glimpse at what nuclear Armageddon would be like. Also the video is great at showing how it all works a lot of people I think get the wrong impression on how a ICBM works, their belief is the one rocket IS the nuke and do not realise the rocket is carrying multiple re-entry vehicles
