Nice pics, that was my old job.


By the way, we won't lob any ICBMs at Iraq because of flyover problems. A nuke via ALCM is the more likely choice if it comes to that and hopefully that doesn't happen.

Your old job, do you mean taking pictures or working on ICBM test's ?

Yep, that was me running for my life while taking those pics.


I worked with Minuteman IIIs for 7 years, 4 years in the field and 3 years teaching others about the system. I almost went into the test unit that launched the PKs in those pics, but I went to satellite operations instead.

Where were you stationed MT ?

Nope, Minot ND....but I was born in MT since my dad worked with ICBMs too.

There's only 3 ICBM bases left in ND, MT and WY. The PK squadron is going away because of START with the Russians.

ICBM - Intercontinental Ballistic Missile

These are real pictures taken of dummy warheads reentering the atmosphere in the target zone. They are travelling at 5-6km a second.

MX MISSILE



These next images are from Minuteman III ICBM's




Those warheads have travelled from the continental US to Kwajelain Atoll in the South pacific and by the looks landed fairly accurately.

Whilst this article speaks of the triumphs of Russian technology, they would still have a hard time shooting down a MIRV especially as the US one's are manouvrable as well. We have all seen how much trouble the US has had with their ABM effort and that is under controlled conditions.
As for the numbers of S-300 ABM systems deployed I'd have to disagree, I'll post a link when I have time to search for one.
ICBM are still the pre-eminent nuclear delivery method and the most unstoppable at the moment. SLBM's are even deadlier as they can launch from much closer in, cutting down reaction time drastically. The US D-5 Trident II SLBM has an 8000km range and can land 10 warheads within 50m of 10 different targets.
There is always the ICBM used for a high altitiude burst which would destroy electronocs over a huge area through EMP. I doubt the Russian missile systems would be shielded too well against that.

Nope. He was an "ICBM pilot". But like he was forgeting, allways, to use his ejection seat, he has been fired from the USAF.

Did you see the date of this article ? You don't know it, but the Russians do NOT have the money for their new system S-400.

Just like the good 'ol German test pilots who had to fly the protoype V-1 rockets.
