    Vostok Launch
    by Richard Terry, 1978

    Manned space flight began on April 12, 1961, with Yuri Gargarin's single-orbit mission. The liquid-fueled, two-stage Vostok rocket that lifted Gagarin into space was used to launched a variety of military and civilian spacecraft from 1959 to the 1980s. During the 1980s, several years after this illustration was made, the Soviets began using Vostok rockets to place commercial satellites in orbit for other countries. Vostok means "east" in Russian.


    Buran Space Shuttle
    by Ronald C. Wittmann, 1986

    Developed in the late 1970s, the Buran space shuttle resembled the U.S. Space Shuttle in design and concept. The Soviets planned to use it to place satellites in orbit and to resupply the Mir space station. The Soviets launched the Buran only once, in 1988 without a crew. Russia cancelled the program in the early 1990s after the end of the Cold War. Buran means "snowstorm in the steppes" in Russian.

    Space Laser
    by Ronald C. Wittmann, 1987

    Soviet research into ground- and space-based laser weapons systems began in the 1960s. They Soviets actually built several ground-based lasers in the 1980s which reportedly could destroy or interfere with satellites and aircraft. The space-based laser system envisioned in this 1987 work was designed to destroy or incapacitate satellites and intercontinental ballistic missiles, but was never built.



    Space Particle Beam
    by Ronald C. Wittmann, 1987

    The Soviets first explored the use of space-based particle beams weapons in the late 1960s. As portrayed in this 1987 illustration, the weapon would have targeted satellites or intercontinental ballistic missiles with high-velocity particle beams. The Soviet Union also studied other space-based directed-energy weapons, including those using laser and kinetic energy technology. None of these types of weapons were ever deployed.

    Cosmos 389 ELINT
    by Brian W. McMullin, 1982

    This 1982 work shows the Cosmos 389 satellite, which was launched in December 1970 and performed electronic intelligence (ELINT) missions. Cosmos 389 was the first in a series of "ferret" satellites that pinpointed sources of radar and radio emissions to identify air defense sites and command and control centers. Transmitted to ground stations, the data was used for Soviet targeting and war planning.

    Soviet Space Station and Shuttle
    by Brian W. McMullin, 1986


    In the mid-1980s, Moscow announced plans to have a large, permanently manned space station orbiting the Earth in the 1990s. They launched MIR, the core vehicle of a modular space station, in February 1986. The Soviets planned to use the space shuttle orbiter, then in development, to carry payloads and assist in the assembly of the space station.

    Soviet Anti-Satellite System
    by Ronald C. Wittmann, 1986

    Soviet military space capabilities posed an ever-increasing threat to U.S. land, sea, air, and space forces in the 1980s. The USSR. operated and tested an orbital antisatellite weapon that was designed to destroy space targets with a multi-pellet blast.


    [SIZE=2]SOVIET GROUND-BASED LASER
    by Edward L. Cooper, 1986[/SIZE]


    The Soviet Strategic Defense Program involved extensive research on advanced technologies in the 1980s. The USSR already had ground-based lasers, conceptually illustrated here, capable of interfering with some US satellites.

    Soviet Mobile Lasers Defending an Airfield
    by Edward L. Cooper, 1987

    The Soviets built high-energy laser devices in the 1980s and generally placed more emphasis on the weapons applications of lasers than did the West. The tactical laser program had progressed to the point that by the mid-1980s, U.S. analysts anticipated that laser weapons would be deployed with future Soviet forces.

    Soviet SS-25s Firing
    by Edward L. Cooper, 1986

    The deployment of road-mobile SS-25 intercontinental ballistic missiles in the 1980s marked a Soviet decision to make the land component of its strategic forces more survivable. The SS-25 SICKLE was about the same size as the U.S. Minuteman and carried a single nuclear-tipped reentry vehicle.

    Soviet ZSU Anti-Aircraft Guns
    by Edward L. Cooper, 1987

    The 2S6, deployed in the 1980s, was the newest antiaircraft system designed to operate with the motorized rifle and tank divisions. The 30-mm 2S6 represented a significant improvement over the older ZSU-23-4 and complimented the Soviet's highly effective surface-to-air missiles.
