Antimissile umbrella over the Russian cities


The Ministry of Defence has approved the concept of not strategic missile defense (NPRO). Complexes which will be a part of this system will cover the cities, important social institutions, congestions of troops, road and industrial infrastructure. Hypersonic aircraft and ballistic missiles will become their potential purpose. Now the systems capable to intercept them are created only around key strategic objects. In the long term NPRO has to ensure safety of all territory of the country from rocket attacks. In Russia there will be not strategic missile defense system, have reported to Izvestia in the Ministry of Defence. The corresponding concept is approved by the management of department. In the long term such missile defense will be capable to cover quickly not only strategically important stationary constructions, but also the cities, bridges, railway junctions and socially important objects. At the same time the system isn't intended for interception of strategic ballistic missiles. The basis of NPRO will be formed by the mobile complexes mounted by trucks. In case of their threat it is possible to develop in only a few hours near important objects in different regions of the country. In it one of differences of the perspective missile defense from existing in Russia. The present strategic system of missile defense represents the most difficult capital structures, underground mines with antimissiles and network of bunkers – command posts. First of all it is about interception of ballistic and aero ballistic missiles with range to several hundred kilometers, the military expert Anton Lavrov has noted. Now such missile systems appear more and more and they become high-precision. Missile defense systems have to fight against new classes of threats. – In the conflicts in the Middle East we see that ballistic missiles with range in hundreds of kilometers are on arms not only the states, but also non-state formations, – the expert has told. According to him, progress makes technology more and more available. Non-state formations can buy rockets from a number of the countries which have them. To quickly develop not strategic missile defense system not so difficult, but the range will be not too high because of character of the purposes. Not strategic ballistic missiles have high speed, can be even maneuverable on the final site. To intercept them it is difficult. Present anti-aircraft weapons are still insufficiently effective against such means therefore it is necessary to develop new antimissiles. The last generation of rockets for the S-400 and S-500 complexes which tests have come to the end recently is directed just to fight against such purposes. For the last decade in many states programs of creation of operational and tactical rockets which can pose a serious threat have gained development, the military expert Yury Lyamin has noted. Now even not leading countries have ballistic missiles of high precision. – To take, for example, DPRK – the small country could create even an intercontinental ballistic missile, – he has explained. – At the same time at them quite big to
