detects unique Russian war head –They don’t have any answer.


U.S. defense officials say Russia has successfully tested a ballistic missile capable of changing course at high speeds.

Unlike current ballistic warheads that do not alter their flight paths sharply once they reach space, the new warhead can change course and range while traveling at speeds estimated at about 3 miles per second, officials told the Washington Times.

The test was conducted Nov. 1, and was tracked by satellites after launch from the Kapustin Yar launch complex in southern Russia near Volgograd.

Maneuvering warheads represents a difficult challenge because changing course at such high speeds normally would usually cause a warhead to disintegrate.

Kremlin officials were quoted in Russian press reports as saying the new warhead was designed to thwart the new U.S. missile-defense system of interceptors stationed in Alaska and California.

Russia’s Unique anti terror weapons
Russia's state arms exporter -Rosoboronexport ,showcased new state of art weaponry and equipment intended to combat terrorism on July 27th 2005 .

The exhibition was named "Anti-Terror Weapons,"

The show presented a selection of weapons and military equipment, many of which have no analogues in the world. Russia has won foreign markets in over 50 states,

Here are some of the main products :

Anti terror Robot : It has not been named yet

This unique Robot can detect bombs in a street, in a building, at the bottom of a car or inside its saloon, in a truck.
The robot can neutralize a bomb too, if necessary.
The invention is outfitted with a remote control system, which allows to manipulate the machine at the distance of 600 meters.
The robot weighs only 40 kilos and can be packed in two suitcases.





Weapons that can neutralize but not kill Terrorists :

Russian defense specialists designed grenade-launchers, which can target terrorists' respiratory apparatus, blind and deafen them or disable extremists with rubber grape-shots.

The "Redut" flak jacket

This is already in use in the Russian anti-terrorist groups for their daily activities

The "Redut" flak jacket guarantees protection against bullets, including TT steel-headed bullets. If battling conditions are much more serious, the "Redut" flak jacket can be transformed into an enhanced version, which saves military men from automatic fire of the M-16A1 gun. "Armor" suit designed for explosion specialists secures a person against an explosion of some 1.5 kilos of TNT, even if a bomb blasts only one meter afar.




Guns
The display included the
APS assault rifle, which shoots 120-mm-long needle-like arrows; the silent VSS sniper rifle, with 9 mm bullets;

the VSK-94 sniper rifle, which can pierce 8 mm-thick sheet steel at a distance of 100 metres; the world's lightest compact assault rifle,

the Vikhr, which fires powerful 9 mm bullets;

and a special silent AS submachine gun that can pierce any bullet-proof vest.

the Under Water machine gun

A machine gun for underwater battles enjoyed special attention at the show. The gun, which has no analogues in armed forces of foreign states, can destroy targets at the range of about 30 meters.

"This is ... unique equipment that we will sell to 50 countries in the world," Rosoboronexport deputy general director Anatoly Isaikin said at a presentation at the Interior Ministry research center.




apart from these various weapons were displayed that can be used by civilians to protect themselves from terrorists

the exhibition was conducted by Rosoboronexport

The agency hopes the new gadgets, including an underwater assault rifle, will help increase the company's sales in that segment. Sales of anti-terror equipment make up just 1 percent of the company's annual turnover of $5 billion.
Rosoboronexport mainly sells its anti-terror weapons to countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Arab world.
It does not sell its high-tech gadgets to Europe or the United States, as NATO standards differ from those in Russia, Isaikin said.
Rosoboronexport is, however, in regular contact with security services of Western countries, Isaikin said.
"We have been developing special equipment for quite a while based on our experience in Chechnya and terrorist acts elsewhere in Russia and have much to share," he said.

Russia’s New Space Shuttle: Cippler



MOSCOW, August 16 (RIA Novosti) - The first unmanned flight of Russia's Clipper space shuttle has been set for 2011, and the first manned flight has been scheduled for 2012, a senior official from Russia's leading space company told the Delovoy Vtornik (Business Tuesday) weekly.

Nikolai Bryukhanov, the deputy designer general of the Energia Rocket and Space Corporation, said that the Clipper would replace the Soyuz and the Buran spacecraft to become Russia's main craft for the coming decades.

The Clipper has several advantages because it is a shuttle craft with improved aerodynamics, which allows the craft to cut regular G-forces by two to two and a half times, and irregular G-forces by five times.

The craft is built using the "wing" model. The improved aerodynamics will allow the craft to maneuver at the controlled re-entry stage and increase the precision of the landing.

The Clipper will be able to deliver a six-man crew to the International Space Station (ISS), which will drastically change the situation with the station, Bryukhanov said. At present the main safety rule for the station's operation is that a three-men crew can be evacuated in an emergency by a Soyuz spacecraft. With a Clipper docked at the station, the permanent ISS crew can be increased by two to three times.

"We will certainly spend more money on the new craft's construction, but we will be able to use it for about 25 missions with increased cargo capacity and double the crew," Bryukhanov said. "It will be obviously less expensive than the current program."

According to the expert, Russia can build the Clipper on its own using domestic technologies while it is still possible. However, the Federal Space Agency believes it will be more effective and strategically important for Russia to involve other countries in the project, the weekly said.

Mig 29 OVT :First Aircraft with Multiaxis nozzles (F22 has 2D nozzles)


ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow Region), August 16 (RIA Novosti) - The new Russian fighter jet MiG29 OVT made its first exhibition flight Tuesday. The demonstration, featuring complicated air stunts, was part of the MAKS air show currently taking place in Zhukovsky, outside Moscow.

The MiG29 OVT is the world's first twin-engine jet with a multiaxis nozzle. Other currently operational aircraft with thrust vectoring capability, such as Russia's Su30 MKI and the U.S.' F22, have two-dimensional nozzles.""

Russian scientists develop weapons of the future

Integrated soldiers, laser guns and smart tanks

Laser Guns
The renowned Kalashnikov gun will most likely have to retire and give way to an automatic gun of the new generation - AN-94

Russian designers work on the program titled "The Integrated technology for Soldiers of the 21st Century." The program includes the work on the individual equipment for warriors of the future. The major goal of the project is to systematize all the weapons, which a soldier uses in military operations. A defense set of the 21st century actually represents the ultra-modern and multi-functional "walking" computer.

A Kalashnikov gun was considered the best automatic gun in the world only a short time ago. A monument to the globally-recognized Kalashnikov gun was unveiled in one of African countries. However, legends never last forever.

The renowned Kalashnikov gun will most likely have to retire and give way to an automatic gun of the new generation - AN-94, or Abakan. Outwardly, the new weapon does not have any peculiar differences from its predecessor. The Abakan gun has very slight recoil: the so-called carriage system absorbs the shock when bullets fire out.

Unlike the Kalashnikov gun, the Abakan is outfitted with three modes of shooting: single, fixed volleys and continuous fire. The capacity of the Abakan's magazine is 45 cartridges. Designers of the new Russian gun say that AN-94 will have broad perspectives for its perfection. Specialists already work on the modified model of the gun - Abakan-Super. Engineers want to create a symbiosis of unique fire-arms and a multi-functional computer system. The amended version of the gun includes a laser sight with day and night-time modes. In addition, the Abakan-Super gun will be equipped with a computer block, which analyses all parameters necessary to strike targets day and night.




Future soldier

A head-piece of the soldier of the future is made of light and ultra-solid materials. The helmet represents an electronic unit, which allows a soldier to stay in touch with his commanders, determine his whereabouts, the spending of ammunition supplies, etc.



World's smartest tank will most likely be developed in the city of Nizhni Tagil. For the time being, the new machine exists as a sketch; it is tentatively called "Object N." It is expected that the project will end with the creation of the smartest tank in the world: the machine will be outfitted with a highly efficient electronic intellect. The system will be receiving information about a target through optical, thermal imaging and infra-red channels, which include a laser range-finder and a radar station.

The new tank will be outfitted with a 1,300 horse power engine - it will thus become the most powerful tank engine in the world. The weight of the new super machine will reach 45 tons: it will be the lightest tank among armored vehicles of the class. The shells of the new machine will be capable of breaking the armor of any other tanks. Furthermore, a special electronic detector of Object-N's shells will not let a moving target escape the destruction.

[ b]New Gen Cartridge

Russian scientists currently conduct secret research works to develop a new generation of cartridges too. The traditional powder will most likely be replaced with light-gas blend. New cartridges will possess a more powerful breaking capacity: a new bullet fired from the distance of one kilometer will be able to break through a 2-centimeter thick layer of armor. The bullet develops an incredibly high initial velocity owing to the reduced weight and the special composition of the powder blend. To crown it all, Russian defense scientists try to design a jet-propelled bullet. As soon as such a bullet touches the surface of a target, a tiny charge blows up in the core of the bullet, and it vehemently plunges into the armor.

Exactly. I see posts about the advancements China and Russia are making and how America will be DECIMATED by them if there was a war. But people forget that America spends a little over half the world's defense spending. Do you really think America is just sitting back and waiting to see what happens? Do you really think America doesn't know everything that China and Russia are doing? Who knows what is in the American arsenal. China's military is a fraction of America's, and America was not slowed down by a break up in their country, they kept going and going and going. So...

Quantity over quality? I don't think so. Russian weapons look funny? I don't think so. At least now. Long ago they used to make cheap crap like T-72s, Mig-21s, and AK-47s. Now they make high tech hot looking stuff like Black Eagles, An-94s, AKS-74Ms and AK-100s, and Su-37s. The stuff you see when you open a US book about Russian army will probably show you stuff made in the 70s and 80s. Google will show you stuff mostly in the 70s and 80s. But look carefully, type/look up the right names, and you will see the true treasures that Russia has today. Russia's army isn't super yet, but it soon will be. This weapons update is just one. There are more to come. Each one is a step for the great nation. For Russia! Za Rodinu!!!!!!!!!! Za Rosiyu! Fsegda budu zoschishat!

T-72, Mig 21 and AK-47 weren't cheap crap when they were designed, but most people compare them against most modern US equipment and that's not fair.

Russian Soldier, You do have very modern and effective eqipment these days, problem is that Russia can only field 2 Motorized divisions with the Bmp-3, T-90 level gear (and even those have lots of equipment from the 70's)
Majority of troops are still using T-64, T-80, BTR-80, Bmp-2 level gear and reserves are equiped with even older stuff.

Russia currently has ONE brigade equipied with the most modern gear, my opinion is that this brigade is on par with the western equipment, but MAJORITY of russian army is still equipied with quite old gear. Still the old gear is good enough to Defend Russia against all militaries in the world.

AIR FORCE SET TO GET 250 Yak-130 jets

Originally posted by prelude

MOSCOW, June 15 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Air Force is looking to purchase 250 new Yak-130 aircraft to train pilots, a senior aviation official said Thursday.

The Yak-130 can be used as a light strike aircraft or as a trainer for fourth and fifth generation fighters. With a production line launched in May 2003, the plane is also being actively touted for export.

"We need 250 aircraft of this kind, which will account for 75% of the total training fleet, while the remainder will comprise the MiG-AT Miser combat trainer," Air Force Commander Vladimir Mikhailov said.

He said production would start in the Siberian city of Irkutsk, in addition to an already operating plant in the Volga region city of Nizhny Novgorod, to meet demand, and that four Yak-130 were undergoing flight testing.

"The tests are successful and there is no doubt the production of these aircraft will increase," Mikhailov said.

Testing, including spin and combat tactics trials, will be completed this year prior to delivery of the planes to the Air Force.,

Another news report says

Mikhailov also said four Yak-130 training aircraft with AI-222-25 engines, which are to be used in fifth-generation aircraft, were undergoing flight tests.
