Russia Successfully Completed Tests Of Nuclear Powered Unit For Burevestnik Cruise Missile: State Media

Russian has successfully competed tests of the compact nuclear power unit for cruise missile Burevestnik, the state-run news agency TASS reported on February 16 citing a source in the missile producing industry.

“A major stage of trials of the cruise missile of the Burevestnik complex, the tests of the nuclear power unit, were successfully completed at one of facilities in January,” the source said.

He added that the trials had “sustained stated specifications of the reactor ensuring the missile’s unlimited range.”

A compact high-power nuclear engine developed by Russia for air-launched cruise missiles and sea-launched cruise missiles was first revealed by President Vladimir Putin in March 2018. According to the president’s statement such, a cruise missile armed with a special warhead features almost unlimited range, non-predictable trajectory and high air defense penetration capacity and cannot be intercepted by all existing missile defense and air defense assets.

    Tales.

    Tis is the real Russia:

    in January in one russian city painted the snow with white color… the country, where the yesterday means tomorrow.

    • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

      I see that you can’t read. This report is about nuclear-powered cruise missiles with unlimited range, not about pollution disasters, which occur around the world.
      I truly admire your magnificent and deliberate ignorance on nuclear fission propulsion.
      I suppose only the “superior and civilised” West has the God-given right to invent these terrifying weapons, RIGHT?

      • vladput

        a see the both sides of the coin.

        russia should save its citizens. the whole countyr is in stage os beginning of 20th century. desolated, desperated, poor, everywhere vodka-drunekrs.

        41% of people between 24-40 years old will leave russia. 71% blame putin for unsolbved problems. this is official russian study.

        ruusia has no money to produce 100 su-pak as was planned. russia has no money to produce armata tanks. the program is topped. what do you think, will have money for these toys? how many will be able to produce? 5 peces? 8 pieces??

        and my comment is relevant ot the article. IF UNDER SUCH conditions must work the people, this country has no future. already india is better place..

        • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

          Who do you serve? Are you one of those Russians that arse lick the US and the West?
          I understand that Russia has quite a few US arse-lickers, just as as my own birth country of India does. That is why India was under centuries of foreign domination until 1947.

            Are you sure he is Russian and not Ukrainian?

          • Sinbad2

            Are you sure he’s human?
            I mean I can’t believe a mentally competent person would believe that you could paint snow.

          • neil barron

            I don’t think it’s ” could paint” I believe why would you.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Its always wise to wash the snow in warm water first before painting it in a water based white paint in my experience, Sinbad.

          • Harry Smith

            Please allow to explain my point of view over the situation. US has to employ citizens of Ukraine who support USA, because they can speak Russian and have access to the news from Russia without translation, and, of course, they can push the Washington agenda over the WEB. But there are two enormous issues.

            1. Most of the Ukrainian supporters of USA are nazzi and have IQ below 80.
            2. As they watch Ukrainian TV news and read Ukrainian news websites they repeat the unbelievable lies from there. And the trolls do really believe in that news because of point “1”.

            So, for most of Russians is quite easy to detect them. And when they appear at the Russian outlets it is a great fun, because of the lies they say and because they are too stupid to understand we are trolling them back. At the beginning of maidan there was a lot of them in Russian segment of internet, but now is a little sad moment course they switched to the English speaking segment and we’ve lost a free source of “LOLs” :)

            So, if you see a nazzi fool saying absolute lie about Russia or Russian and also is Russophobic or racist – the most evident conclusion he is Ukrainian. But you can troll him back saying that Putin is the greatest leader of now days. At that moment inside of the Ukrainian nazzi is starting the process, which you can translate mot-a-mot from Russian as “shitting bricks”. And of course you can troll them back saying that Crimea is Russian now, that according to the official EU statistics 25% of prostitutes in Western Europe are ethnic Ukrainians and etc. Literally you can troll them back just by saying the truth about their country and people.

            BUT, I do NOT suggest you to start talking with them, because their stupidity can cause a small degradation of you IQ. More discussion means more degradation.

          • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

            Good point.

          • vladput

            you lick the ass og britons, wher you immigrated, indian moron!

          • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

            I have sworn loyalty to the Queen, but I can still campaign for a republic. That’s called democracy.
            India does not claim an invasion by the UK, unlike the anti-Russian RACIST Banderised Ukrainians. How’s that fairy story going, by the way? After 100 invasions by the “Russian mongol hordes”, I am sure the Fatso now claims that half the population of RF is now in the Donbass!
            Keep licking US arse. I am sure you will soon discover that only the smelly stuff falls on your deluded face!

          • vladput

            you are dirty gipsy migrant, who betrayed india, his homeland!

          • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

            Gotcha! India and UK are not at war and are now partners in the re-development of the Indian economy through trade and investment. You are an anti-Russian RACIST who thinks that the sun shines out of the US/EU/NATO gangsters.
            See the difference between partnership and Banderised Ukrainian servility?

          • vladput

            did you left india? did

            according your logis are you a betrayer? YES!

            shut up, gypsy thief!

        • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

          I ask again: WHO DO YOU SERVE? It is NOT the Russian people.
          Why would any patriotic Russian leave Russia to the mercy of the US/EU/NATO gangsters???

          • Wulver

            Maybe Ukrainian, one of the ones with the hairline about an inch above the eyebrow.

          • vladput

            indian migrant, you shut up! you betrayed your coutry when you left. for what? for british social system, you gipsy parazite!

          • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

            Lick, lick, lick!
            Who do you serve?
            I see I have hit bulls eye with your tantrum.
            Fortunately, today’s UK is different to Imperial UK, and we hope to have partnership between India and UK.
            I suppose the only partnership you would understand is US arse-licking.
            But, you are right: it is war when the Indian cricket team visit the UK and vice-versa.
            Keep practising the US arse-licking: lick, lick, lick!!!

    • Sinbad2

      Painted snow, you really are one dumb mother fkr.

      • vladput

        look at this. :P

      • FlorianGeyer

        You should realise ,Sinbad, that White is bad these days :)

    • Garga

      I don’t expect any truth from you because you are , well, you Solomon!

      The black snow you blame it on Putin? Also happened in Greenland, Himalayas Nepal and elsewhere. The snow contains fine particles of soot, dust and Cryoconite, a product of large scale fires and volcanic eruptions.
      So, Putin rules over forest fires, volcanoes, wind corridors and weather. I envy such power.

      But I must say I’m impressed. One lousy comment and you managed to derail the conversation away from this amazing machine Russia has built.

      • vladput

        if you understand russian, i put here also russian article. this is dust from opened coal mines.

        in that region there is no volcano, dear ayatollah! :P

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          a fact that is happening every where there are coal mines and snow, around the world. I fail to see where the toxic comes in.

          • FlorianGeyer

            “I fail to see where the toxic comes in.”

            Vladput’s own mind and the minds of his handlers I would think.

      • BMWA1

        Black hand of Putin!

    • Concrete Mike

      Ok and is russia to blame for the brown snow we have here? Who would have thunk??

      And all these years the yellow snow came from filthy Ivans??

      If you would go out in the woods from time to time instead of being plastered to a computer all the time you would see all.kinds of snow colors.

  • Sinbad2

    These are real game changers, the US is in range from anywhere on earth, and unlike ballistic missiles you can’t see them coming.
    The US has lost the arms race it just started.

    • potcracker777

      no they are no game changers…..all the “new” weapons russia has are …great, state of the art, but NO GAME CHANGER.
      In a nuclear war between east and west….ALL R DEAD!!!
      ps. if only india and Pakistan wage nuclear war, with no other nations involved, the earths temperature would fall between 5-7 degress Fahrenheit.ICE AGE!!! That was an official Outcome of the work of several international physicists.Sputnik News wrote a great article about this.

      • Jim Bim

        Exactly!!!!!!!!
        The earths climate now is so vulnerable that a nuke exchange between india and Pakistan of a 100 megaton is enough to put the Earth into a rapidly Ice age. The Nuke superpowers know that, Putin has warned about that….you don“t need tens of thousand of megatons to put earth on extinction level.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Bugger.
          I threw my skis away a couple of years ago , together with my warm ski-wear . Just what I would need for a new ice age.

          I would be able to tell the Global Warming Brigade that they were wrong though. With proof as well :)

      • Empire’s Frontiers

        What do you two, Jim, Pot, make of this?

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLCF7vPanrY

      • Nosferatu

        it is a game changer because it garantees that Russia will strike back no matter how powerfull the US first strike will be. That is something US did not excpect Russia will be able to keep, after the break up of USSR.

      • Sinbad2

        It’s a game changer, since it might just stop the US starting a nuclear war.
        The US is collapsing and they are going to extraordinary lengths to hide that collapse.
        Their vanity and lack of intelligence means they will probably start a nuclear war, to try and hide their failure.

      • cechas vodobenikov

        if this is a “game” it is fake; a war fought w nuclear weapons guarantees that the following war will be fought w sticks and stones

      • Sinbad2

        Yes you here about these kind of reports all the time, but they are in effect guessing.

        I remember when the hole in the ozone layer was discovered, and the so called experts said it was caused by CFC’s and if we stopped using them the hole in the ozone layer would disappear in a decade, so we stopped using CFC’s.
        That was 40 years ago and the hole is bigger than ever.

        Same applies to climate change, they make all kinds of predictions, but they still can’t work out an accurate model for the evaporation rate of the oceans.

        To me science is provable, guesstimates are not science, the only data available to judge the effects of a nuclear war on humans is based on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

        Your 5-7F temperature drop, is just a guess by someone pretending to do science.

      A lot of jobs and works for military industry.

  • verner

    aim on washington to free the american people of the criminals occupying congress and then aim for tel aviv to free the world of the squatters that has made the world an unsafe place during the last 100 years or so. in any case – aim well and we can clear the mess after the fact.

  • Tudor Miron

    Main purpose of Burevestnik (Stormbringer) is that having unlimited range it allows to attack US territory from ALL possible directions (unlike conventional cruise missiles) and that requires deploying AMD around all perimeter and that will be… “a bit complicated” to do.

    Averall, Russian military doctrine is not about starting and winning a war with US. It is about making sure that in case US starts a war they would not be able to win it but will be wiped off the face of this planet. Guranteed mutual destruction.

    US was seeking to disrupt strategic parity by introducing AMD systems that would allow to defend against retaliatory strike but now their concept of preemptive strike is nothing other than suicide concept.

    • FlorianGeyer

      It appears that most people in the US believe in their invincibility , even the clowns in Government.

      Anyway, what will be will be. The US will collapse, but when ?
      Perhaps a civil war with all its horrors , is actually what the US needs to get adults in control again.

      • Tudor Miron

        Personally, while I wish that US empire in it’s current role is gone I don’t wish “horrors on their heads”. People’s suffering is not something to enjoyable in my view. However it doesn’t depend on my views :)
        Sivil wars are not meant to make things better but “Мера кровавости грядущих событий зависит от уровня нравственности всех участников процесса”(с)
        Regarding when – 5 or 6 years ago saying that US hegemon role could be questioned would seem crazy and look where we’re now. Things may take longer or shorter than expected – let’s see how it unfolds.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I agree.

          I just find it difficult to imagine how the dire state of US politics can be redressed , without being triggered by a national calamity of some sort.

          The vice like grip that the military industrial complex has on America has literally atrophied the country with trillions of dollars wasted on wars and waste.
