Hello everyone welcome again with us at weapon technology blog. Today I’m going to engage you to see three Russian weapon systems that have no equivalence anywhere in the world. Before reading this blog don’t forget to leave your comment below. This weapons trio is striking fear into terrorists in the Middle East. It’s protecting the country’s borders.
It’s now 2020 and Russia and the US are still the technological leaders of the global weapons market. Each country has its own set of weapon systems to protect their sovereignty. But Russia’s big guns are seriously impressive. Here are three of them in late 2018 Russian president Vladimir Putin personally monitored the ballistic test of a new intercontinental missile.
The vanguard the God of missile
The vanguard which has come into service with the country’s missile troops in 2019. Even the vanguard marks a new phase in Russian rocket science unlike its predecessors and foreign counterparts. It can reach an incredibly high altitude and fly at hypersonic speeds. At present there are no other missile in the world has the same capabilities. The missile is 130 times more powerful than the explosion that devastated Hiroshima and can travel to its target at a speed of about 24 000 kilometers per hour.
The vanguard is part of Russia’s nuclear triad which is not designed to deter any potential aggressors from attacking the country as for its versatility. A vanguard can be come with both nuclear and common payloads depending on a situation of war.
The s-400 Air Defense System of Russia
Another Russian monster which enjoys global weapon leadership is the s-400 triumph air defense system. It can detect air targets within a radius of up to 600 kilometers and shoot them down at a range of 400 kilometers be. It fast intercontinental ballistic nuclear missiles hurtling earth the s-400 will track and shoot them out. It’s key difference from its main competitor. The American mim-104 patriot is its ability to see and shoot down targets from all directions.
The American system can scan the skies only in a preset direction at 180 degrees. Furthermore patriot launchers take as long as 30 minutes to deploy. In that time missiles will hit their target and the battle will be lost. The patriot has a range of 180 kilometers half that of the Russian system 400 kilometers. This plays a significant role in countering not only missiles but also fighters and bombers.
T14 Armata new-generation battle tank
Despite the threat of economic sanctions hardware based on the armada platform and in particular the t14 tank marks a milestone in the development of heavy armor technology of the 21st century. The t14 is the best tank in the world. It is equipped with a 125 millimeter 282 smoothbore guns with an option to install a 152 millimeter 2883 gun with a fully digital remote control. This is the only tank with an unmanned turret. The entire crew is based in an isolated armored capsule with ultra strong frontal armor from where they have full control of the vehicle and all its systems. This technological solution allows the crew to survive even when the turret gets a direct hit or the ammunition catches fire.
Latest Russian Weapon Systems
Furthermore the tank’s armor can withstand shelling by anti-tank shells and missiles. Regarding its armor the t-14 has a new active protection system called afghan’s which is capable of both physically destroying targets and disabling them. Its flight path with the help of lasers radars and a smoke screen should the projectile escape. The radars and lasers the molle kit dynamic shield comes into play which hits missiles as they approach the tank.
