Russia to revive missile trains as U.S. launches European defense system
Russia to revive missile trains as U.S. launches European defense system

By Viktor Litovkin, Special to Russia Beyond the Headlines | May 17, 2016 at 1:40 PM

Russia is reviving the production of military trains with missiles, or, as the military call them, combat rail-based missile systems.

The new Barguzin rail-based missile system will be employed by the Russian armed forces no earlier than 2020 and will be equipped with six missiles, Col. Gen. Sergei Karakayev, the commander of Russia's Strategic Missile Forces, has said.

The decision of the Russian leadership to revive the production of rail-based missile systems may be interpreted as yet another response to the deployment of the U.S. missile defense system in Europe, which is able to launch Tomahawk long-range cruise missiles, in addition to interceptor missiles. Moscow considers the system a threat to its security.

New train-based missile

Three divisions of combat rail-based missile systems (four regiments in each and 12 trains carrying three Molodets strategic missiles) were already in service in the Soviet/Russian Strategic Missile Forces from 1984 to 2007. (...)

RE: Russia to revive missile trains as U.S. launches European defense system
Russia is reminding Europe that it is all right for them to have thousands of nukes pointed at Europe, but dare Europe have defenses against them? Oh no, that's not acceptable. We'll get more nukes pointed at you!

Russia = the barbarian Turk of the 21st century armed with nukes. Or rather, Mexico with a nuke and space programs.
