26 Introducing Ground-Mobile Missile Complex Yars

Introducing Ground-Mobile Missile Complex Yars

Posted on December 15, 2011 by

This ground-mobile missile complex Yars has an explosive power of 150 kilotons to 300 kilotons and is equipped with newest devices which make it indestructible for any potential enemy.

It has an improved safety system and shows better performance.

The RS-24 Yars was designed in the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology under the direction of Yuri Solomonov.

The RS-24 is an enhanced, MIRVed development of the Topol-M missile which allowed to shorten its production time.

    “The Yars, Topol-M and Bulava missile complexes present the military might of Strategic Nuclear Sorces of Russia.”

    They forgot about the Sineva missiles. Then again, I’ve never heard of Bulava’s being with the Nuclear Forces. Those are naval missiles.

    • Hirsh says:

      Is the Bulava submarine launched missiles progressing? Last i heard from 2005 onward it had failed at least half of the 14 submerged launch tests it had undergone. The most recent test was supposed to be a month ago and they postponed it until a later date. Not promising.

      With Bulava Russian submariners might have more to worry about then their enemy. ;)

      • ayaa says:

        You wish. There have been 17 Bulava tests, 11 have been successful. FYI, the last six tests have all been succesful and the Bulava has been approved for acceptance.

        And besides, there still are the Sineva missiles.

    And what about my PENTION plan
    Same $300K ????

    • Hirsh says:

      Not Putin’s problem, he’s amassed billions to retire on. Perhaps you should forget the pension and go into Russian politics too? I hear it’s quite profitable.

  3. Hirsh says:

    Needs more fire extinguishers.

    • ayaa says:

      What is it with you and fire extinguishers on missile launchers?

      • Hirsh says:

        It’s a mobile ballistic missile launcher. If the engineers think 4 or 6 fire extinguishers are sufficient, it needs 10~12 to be safe. ;)

        • ayaa says:

          Hardly. I’ve seen a Topol battery up-close and personal, no apparent danger of firs. None is allowed to smoke or light fires without permission.

          BTW, you are obviously referring to the extinguishers on the outside of the truck. Guess what, Topol trucks have atleast 9 in the cabin. And since these are Yars missiles, I’m pretty sure there will be more.

          • Hirsh says:

            It was really just a joke, but i hope you’re right about their being more. Murphy’s law and all that.

          • Hirsh says:

            Eventually anything that can go wrong will go wrong. That’s “Murphy’s Law”.

            That’s why it is equipped with multiple fire extinguishers in the first place. Otherwise it wouldn’t need any. Would you have inspected the Titanic and said there’s no apparent danger too? ;)

            Why do you take a joking comment and make something serious out of it?

            • ayaa says:

              Well forgive my lack of sarcasm and a sense of humor.

              You don’t need to worry about an unintentional launch. Even if a fire did break out on a truck, the propellant isn’t going to react and launch.

  4. Alkofunker says:

    This is the guarantee of the Russian sovereignty.

    Without this technology, Russia’s faith would be similar to that of Libya.

    • Testicules says:

      Aside from China, I can think of no country that would have any territorial ambitions against Russia. Perhaps the people in the Baltic or the Germans (because of East Prussia) would want to move the borders some. Serious land grabs would only could only come from the Chinese. They would love to expand north and take the Pacific coast.

    • Hirsh says:

      So you mean the Russian government should be worried about the Russian people rising up and overthrowing their dictator by force? lol

      Yeah, Mobile Yars will be a great asset in the fight against rag-tag rebels shooting AK’s from the pick-up bed of Toyota Hilux’s. :)

    • Ivan says:

      It helps, no doubt about it… but from there to “similar to that of Libya” there’s 1 million years’ light.

    • SMERSH says:

      These are weapons of aggression, not defense.

  5. Mr. Fox says:

    I heard this is russian ‘ultimate’ weapon.

    I heard someone call it ‘magic stick(mean : c**K)’ because of it’s shape.

  6. Hirsh says:

    I like how all the support vehicles are adorned with tow ropes. Now triple that amount and they’ll have enough to deal with Murphy’s Law.

    • Matlok says:

      I wonder if there is a Russian equivalent to “Murphy’s law”? For all of you “moderators” out there,Murphy’s law states that “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”

      • Hirsh says:

        You may be right. I wonder if the have a phrase or name for it in Russian? Or is it just ordinary everyday life in Russia and they don’t think twice about it? :)

  7. scud-werfer says:

    the topol-M is a damn huge vehicle! How far does the Rockets fly?

  8. Vandammage says:

    Give it 10 years I’m sure they will all be parked up in woods somewhere to rot

  9. jolly 1 says:

    It is amazing to think of the destruction capable from such beautiful engineering…all living things burned. Normal military people ready for orders.

    If you were on Mars looking at Earth and saw the tiny explosions, you would ask, “What was that?” and an all-knowing companion would answer, “Oh the improbable, brilliant life on that planet is destroying itself.”
