Russian official says it is impossible to intercept Yars missile with existing systems
Russia’s Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles of the 5th generation cannot be intercepted by existing missiles defense systems, Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces Sergey Karakaev told the Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star) newspaper.
“This missile embodies the latest achievements in science and technology. It will suffice to say that it uses new technical solutions that allow not just to significantly complicate, but also make it physically impossible to intercept this missile with any missile defense system,” Karakaev said.
He added that the Yars missile system supersedes the Topol system on several parameters. “The constructive features of Yars allow to launch these missiles even from platforms, on which Topol could operate only after special engineering works,” he noted. Karakev said that this allows to use more territories for military patroling and launch missiles from any place.
The RS-24 Yars is a Russian strategic missile system comprising a mobile or silo-based solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile with MIRVed (multiple independently targetable vehicle) warheads. the ICBM was developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology under the supervision of Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Yury Solomonov. The Yars is a modification of the Topol-M missile system.
North Korea test fires rockets in Thanksgiving reminder of year-end deadline for U.S.
Breaking a month-long lull in missile tests, North Korea fired two short range projectiles into the sea off its east coast on Thursday in what appeared to be the latest try out of its new multiple rocket launchers, South Korea’s military said.
The test-firing came as the clock ticks down on the year-end deadline that Pyongyang had given the United States to show flexibility in their stalled denuclearisation talks.
It also coincided with the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, and took place one day before the second anniversary of the North’s test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said the North fired the two projectiles into the sea from launchers in the eastern coastal town of Yonpo at around 5 p.m. (0800 GMT).
The rockets travelled up to 380 km (236 miles) and reached an altitude of 97 km (60 miles), the JCS said.
