Moscow Russia has deployed a fresh batch of its top-of-the-line strategic nuclear missiles after a break caused by a funding shortage, and military officials presented ambitious plans Monday for building weapons even more potent.

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov inaugurated the new set of Topol-M missiles at the Tatishchevo missile base in the central Saratov region Sunday, describing them as a "21st-century weapon" unrivaled in the world.

"This is the most advanced state-of-the-art missile in the world," Mr. Ivanov said in remarks broadcast by Russian television stations Monday. "Only such weapons can ensure and guarantee our sovereignty and security and make any attempts to put military pressure on Russia absolutely senseless."

Mr. Ivanov on Monday reported the deployment to President Vladimir Putin, saying the military will continue modernizing all components of the nation's nuclear forces

lol i came here to post this, and its already here

here is some nice info i found about the topol-m

Russia is deploying a new series of nuclear tipped missiles with warheads designed with the aid of US supercomputers. The new Russian SS-X-27 missile is being moved directly into deployment with an advanced 550 kiloton nuclear warhead made by the Arzamas-16 nuclear design bureau.

In early 1997 Russian Atomic energy officials (MINATOM) admitted that an IBM super-computer was purchased from Europe by MINATOM in late 1996 for $7 million. The IBM super-computer was transferred directly to the nuclear weapons center in Arzamas-16. In addition, MINATOM official admitted that that Silicon Graphics, Inc., sold four computers to Chelyabinsk-70, another Russian weapons facility in the fall of 1996 for $650,000 each.

Russia's Ministry of Atomic Energy (MINATOM) stated the US computers would be used for nuclear stockpile maintenance and to simulate nuclear weapons tests. The rapid deployment of the Arzamas-16 nuclear SS-27 warhead appears to be the result of successful simulated Russian tests staged using the US computers.

Way to go USA

The mobile Russian SS-27 also raises serious proliferation questions since the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology is providing the SS-27 design to China. China intends to produce the TOPOL-M missile under the designation "Dong Feng" (East Wind) DF-41. The DF-41 is expected to be deployed with Chinese manufactured nuclear warheads also designed with the aid of US super computers.

Over 46 US super computers have been exported to China. Commerce Bureau of Export Administration Director William Reinsch testified in 1997 before the Senate that US officials could not determine the location of many of the computer sold to China. The Commerce Department authorized the additional export of a US super computer in 1997 even though they were denied access to inspect the Chinese site. In addition, Chinese officials denied access in 1998 to US inspectors who wanted to verify the exported super computers were not being used for military purposes.

not good, not good ,not good..*panicks, runs and hides*

ok, we have officially reached a stage where things will undoubtedly get a lot scarier....things will, get worse.
2005? here we come...
what does one do to prepare himself from such matters? *hints at another topic*

people, this is serious..if the U.S doesnt back down off no-man's land, there wont be a lot left of either...and that's just putting it mildly.
mass destruction, and utter chaos will result...

i am officially on guard for any sudden movements on russia's part...and would hate to see another radiated spot next to the ukraine, will that happen? ofcourse it wont

but what might happen is israel getting vaporized....and the U.S drawing out with a bloody nose.
one hopes these are natural occurances, phases in war where both super-powers are simply showing off, no head-butting so far...

Well, the American Empire has a bit of competition it would seem.

There is alot of very advanced Russian Military Hardware that I had no clue existed before getting into this Topic.

Sure Russia may be behind in some areas, but they sure got it where it counts! The sleeping bear awakes...
