Swedish experts have given the rating of the nuclear states in the world — men’s online magazine M PORT answered them coolest bombs.
20 and a half thousand of nuclear weapons: this figure has been named in the report of the Stockholm international professional institute research problems of the world. And particularly so many deadly charge is armed with eight countries — the U.S., Russia, Britain, France, China, India, Pakistan and Israel.
With all of this five thousand of them are ready for use, and two — are already in a state of alert.
Male online magazine M PORT decided to explore a nuclear toys are the same — or rather, ICBMs — intercontinental ballistic missiles — we, the civilians of the planet Earth, it is worth more than anything to fear?
Most mobile — Topol-M
Manufacturer — Our homeland, the first launch was done in 1994. Start weight — 46 and a half tons. Considered the foundation of Russian nuclear weapons.
Most secure — Yars RS-24
Manufacturer — Our homeland, first start — in 2007. Range — 11 thousand kilometers. Unlike the Topol-M has a separating warhead. Also warheads yars also carries a set of tools breakthrough missile defense, making it difficult to detect and its enemy interception. This innovation makes the RS-24 missile combat more successful in the criteria for a global U.S. missile defense system. And you can even place it on a railway carriage.
Most languid — R-36M Satan
1st run — 1970, weight — 211 tons, range — 11 200 — 16 000 km. Missiles placed in the mines can not be very easy to identify. Satan just broke the record of all the heavyweights.
The clearest — Trident II D5
Manufacturer — United States, first starting in 1987. Weight — 58 tons, range — 11 to 300 km. Based on Trident submarines, and is capable of very high precision striking mine protected intercontinental ballistic missiles and protected command centers.
The most high-speed — Minuteman LGM-30G
Manufacturer — United States, first start — in 1966. Missile weight: — 35 to half tones. Range — 13 000 km. It is believed the missile is one of the fastest in the world and MDBs can accelerate to more than 24 thousand kilometers per hour on the terminal phase of flight.
Most stranded — MX (LGM-118A) Peacekeeper
Manufacturer — United States, first starting in 1983. Weight — 88.44 tons, flight range — 9600 km. Languid Peacekeeper intercontinental ballistic missile — simply the embodiment of the latest technology. For example, the use of composite materials. Also has a high precision hit, and — particularly typical — overpriced «survivability» of nuclear missiles in the criteria for exposure.
Show 1st — R-7
Manufacturer — the USSR, the first run — 1957. Weight — 88.44 tons, range — up to 8000 km. Russian famous «seven», which became the world’s first ICBM. However, its embattled took several hours, which is not very happy with the military. Well, the accuracy rate was not up to par. But ahead of the entire planet.
Show the first submarine — Polaris A-1
Manufacturer — United States, first start — in 1960. Missile weight — 12.7 tons, flight range — 2200 km. Despite the sample missile launch from submarines even engineers of the Third Reich, it only managed to Yankees: their first Polaris submarine launched on board the George Washington with a depth of 20 meters. And exactly 40 days the same success came to the Russian missile R-21.
The most economical — R-30 Bulava
Manufacturer — Our homeland, the first launch took place in 2005. Missile weight — 36.8 tons, flight range — 8000-12000 km. As experts say, the replacement of conventional liquid Bulava missiles repeatedly lowers nuclear deterrent because almost threefold decrease in throw-weight. Besides, launch rockets carried obliquely, that allows you to fire on the move.
There is such a boat through the obvious desire of Russia to preserve: the zeal of the country to reduce development costs by unifying Bulava missiles from land and made its creation less than usual.
Most moderate — V-2
Manufacturer — Germany, first start — in 1942. Missile weight — 13 tons, range — 320 km. The brainchild of Nazi engineer Wernher von Braun, colloquially referred to as a «weapon of retaliation» — Vergeltungswaffe-2 has established itself as ICBMs with more moderate figures from each such rocket fired in London, only two people died. But it needed a good base for us, and the Yankees for future nuclear development.
Well, left to figure out: how much you can earn if you suddenly come across a case of one of these toys — for example, in your garden, the plot, if not entirely in the yard?
