Russia is preparing for the final phase of testing new nuclear weapons – battle railway missile system (rail-mobile missile systems) "Barguzin", created on the basis of his predecessor, bzhrk "Good" (SS-24 Scalpel), who was on duty from 1987 to 2005 and was withdrawn from service by agreement with the United States in 1993. This writes Oleg Borzov in the article "Nuclear train" Russia go", published on the website "independent Star". Below is the article with some reductions.
That forced Russia to return to creating this weapon?
When once again in 2012, Americans confirmed the deployment of its missile defense in Europe, Russian President Vladimir Putin rather harshly formulated it return the position of Russia. It is officially stated that the creation of the American ABM in fact "resets our nuclear missile potential", and declared that our answer will be "developing attack missile-nuclear complexes."
One of these complexes became bzhrk Barguzin, especially not like the us military, causing serious concerns, as its adoption makes it almost useless the presence of US missile defense as such.
"Barguzin" is the main trump card against the US missile defense
The main shortcoming that was noted by the opponents of the missile train, is accelerated wear of railway tracks on which he moved. They often had to fix what the military is with the railroad arose the eternal debate. The reason for this was a heavy launch weight of 105 tons. They do not fit in one car – they needed to be placed in two, reinforcing them wheelset.
Today, when questions of profit and Commerce came to the fore in the Railways certainly not ready, as it were, for the defense of the country to infringe upon its interests and to bear the costs of repair fabric if it is decided that on their way again to run bzhrk. The commercial reason, according to some experts, could become an obstacle for the final solution to taking them on Board.
However, now the problem is removed. The fact that the new bzhrk heavy missiles will be gone. Complexes arming more light missiles RS-24, which are used in the complexes "YARS", but because the weight of the car is comparable to conventional, to achieve the perfect disguise fighting strength.
However, the RS-24 have only four warheads, the old missiles they had a dozen. But here we must consider that he is "Barguzin" carries three missiles as it was before, and only twice. This, of course, still – 24 vs 30. But we should not forget that the "YARS" – almost the most modern development and the probability of overcoming missile defense are much higher than their predecessors. Updated navigation system: now it is not necessary to specify in advance the coordinates of the targets, all can be changed quickly.
During the day, this portable system can travel up to 1,000 kilometers, cruising at any train branches in the country, is indistinguishable from the normal composition of wagons-refrigerators. Time "avtonomki" – a month. There is no doubt that the new group bzhrk will be much more effective response to US missile defense than even the deployment at the borders of Europe, our operational-tactical missiles "Iskander", which are so feared in the West.
There is no doubt that Americans the idea of rail-mobile missile system is clearly not like (although, theoretically, their establishment will not violate the recent Russian-American agreements). Bzhrk at the time was in the SRF the basis of the groups of retaliation, because it has high survivability and likely would have survived after the application of an enemy first strike. The United States feared him no less than the legendary "Satan", as bzhrk was a real factor in the inevitable retaliation.
Until 2020 it is planned the adoption of the five regiments of the rail-mobile missile system "Barguzin" is respectively 120 warheads. Apparently, the rail-mobile missile system will become the strongest argument, in fact, our main trump card in the dispute with the Americans regarding the appropriateness of the deployment of a global missile defense system.

The Times of India newspaper reported, citing a source in the defense Ministry of the country that India is ready to continue cooperation with Russia on combat aircraft of the fifth generation FGFA (Russian analogue of the promising complex of frontline aviation T-50) only in case of full transfer of all technologies.
According to the publication, in addition, the project should help India to work on own aircraft of the new generation. New Delhi, according to experts, spent on work on the fifth generation fighter $25 billion, and the government expects to purchase for the air force 127 new planes.
Newspaper says that getting technology, new Delhi wants to "avoid mistakes" made at the conclusion of the agreement to purchase su-30MKI. India has ordered 272 of the fighter brand "Sukhoi", of which is now in operation already introduced the 240 units. The company Hindustan Aeronautics Limited assembles them from imported kits and still can't produce a "Dry" yourself. As noted by a source in the defense Ministry of India, this situation is extremely disadvantageous to new Delhi, as the Indian fighter build cost more than the aircraft delivered from Russia.

Defense News writes that the United States in the coming years will face a serious shortage of tritium, a key material used in thermonuclear munitions. The half-life of tritium is 12.3 years, which leads to the need to periodically update the fuses in munitions. However, the latest specialized industrial reactor producing tritium in the U.S. was halted in 1988.
Since 2003, new us military tritium obtained by irradiation of steel rods with the addition of lithium aluminate and zirconium in the reactor of the first unit of the nuclear power plant watts Bar (Tennessee), owned by the state company TVA. This process has been difficult, ineffective and associated with large leaks of produced tritium from the rods to the coolant.
As noted in the publication, even if not to consider the operational challenges, one reactor of this type does not cover the needs in tritium according to the current plans to modernise the US nuclear Arsenal. The military point to the need to launch at least one such device.
