Moscow, December 9 The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on the 9th that the Russian armed forces held a strategic nuclear force exercise on the same day.
According to the source, the exercise is based on the Russian armed forces training plan. Russian strategic missile forces, strategic air force (air force), North Sea fleet and nuclear submarines all participated in the exercise.
During the exercise, Tu 160 and Tu 95MS bombers launched cruise missiles after taking off from Engels and Ulanka airports, the strategic nuclear submarine Karelia launched ballistic missiles from the sea below Barents, and the Plesetsk launch site launched intercontinental ballistic missiles.
Missile targets are located at the Kula Range in the Kamchatka Peninsula in eastern Russia and the Pianboi Range in the Komi Republic in central Russia. The tasks of the exercise were successfully completed.
According to Tass News Agency, the Tu160 and Tu 95MS bombers launched two latest cruise missiles, Kh101 and kh555.
According to the International News Agency, during the exercise, the U.S. Air Force RC-135S strategic reconnaissance aircraft flew over Bering Sea near the Russian border for several hours to track the launch trajectory of intercontinental missiles.
It is reported that the function can accurately determine the time when the engine of the intercontinental missile is shut down, so as to determine the launch and landing point of the missile, with a calculation error of no more than 100 meters.
In recent years, Russia has been increasing the modernization and upgrading of strategic nuclear force equipment. Russian President Putin said in November this year that Russia’s strategic nuclear weapons modernization level has reached 82%.
Russia will continue to strengthen the “trinity” nuclear forces such as land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles and strategic bombers, which can eliminate the threat of large-scale military conflicts.
