Its wire spool is reportedly good for up to 25 km, while it keeps the USET-80's depth of 1000 m, but increases the attack speed to 65 knots (the search speed is more leisurely 40 knots) when equipped with the swashplate axial engine fed by the Otto fuel. It is also somewhat heavier than the MK 48, weighing in different versions either 1,8 or 2,2 tonnes to CBASS' 1,6 tonnes, and it also has a bit heavier 300-310 kg warhead.

    Up to 30 from what I read. and 60 knots not 65. The follow up UGST-M with different fuel will supposed to do 65 knots.

    More missile news, more mobile units.

    MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. A prototype of the RS-26 new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) will be demonstrated to the American side within the framework of the implementation of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START-3), says tender documentation posted by the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) on the public procurement website on Monday. "Ensure demonstration of the new-type RS-26 ICBM to the American side at the ICBM production facility — Votkinsk Machine Building Plant," the document says.

    This work will be done by the Center for Ground-Based Space Infrastructure Facilities Operation — the winner of the tender, according to the Roscosmos commission’s decision announced on Monday. The Space Agency will allocate for these purposes more than 11 million roubles. The contact is valid until November 25, 2015. The Center’s specialists "are to organise a visit of a US inspection group accompanied by Russian experts who will arrive for the RS-26 prototype demonstration, including accommodation and meals, transport, communication, souvenirs and, if necessary, medical and other services," the document says.

    The RS-26 missile, also known as Rubezh, was created on the RS-24 Yars ICBM basis. The new upgraded missile will have a multiple warhead and is expected to be lighter than Yars. The RS-26 ICMBs will be only mobile launched, as no silo basing is envisaged for them. According to previous reports, the RS-26 missile is to be put on combat duty already in 2015. A source in the Russian General Staff told TASS that the Irkutsk Guards Missile Formation in Siberia will be the first to receive the new ICBM.

    Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) Colonel General Sergei Karakayev said in late 2014 that the new missile would have lower mass than Yars. "We always say that we need to reduce the size (of missile systems). Speaking of the Yars land-based mobile missile system, to date, its launcher weighs more than 120 tonnes. We will make the improved missile’s weight characteristics under 80 tonnes," said the commander. "By improving the rocket fuel component, a solid fuel component, we are creating a new missile system, which we can deploy also on different soils and in different positioning areas. You understand that it has a better off-road capability and it is smaller in size, so its combat survivability will be higher, and it will require less camouflaging facilities," Karakayev said. "We will not put it in silos, as it’s a land-based mobile missile system," he added.

    Officially, from what I've heard, it's "Wire guidance from 5 to 25 km", but it's always difficut to divine anything real from them.
    The same with the max speed — I haven't seen any reference to the upgraded version, so thanks. So they finally decided to switch to Otto-II?

    Looks like they have finally decided to dump the An-148 as SSJ is coming with 70-130 seater variant

    Also the talk of Tu-204SM for Iran now seems late with lifting of sanctions Iran would end up buying 737 or A-320 instead of 204SM

    That should be fine too as Putin himself said the armament program will be slightly restructured due to economic crisis and inability of industry to meet the timelines.

    IF Russia can maintain 4 % of GDP in Defence expenditure till 2020 then I think atleast financially they would be close to SAP 2020 goals of 2020 may be 20 Trillion if not 23 as promised.

    Also some unanticipated program came up due to Ukraine crisis like Emark project and indignisation of component that were made in Ukraine.

    Seems like Yasen order now stands at 6 compared to promised 8 or 7 and Borei stands at 8

    Russia abandons plans to build super-heavy carrier rocket from scratch

    According to Federal Space Agency Roscosmos, Russia will not develop a super-heavy space launch
    vehicle in the near future, but will modify a heavy Angara-A5 rocket to lift super-heavy loads.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia will not develop a super-heavy space launch vehicle in the near future, but will modify a heavy Angara-A5 rocket to lift super-heavy loads, Federal Space Agency Roscosmos said Wednesday."We have re-allocated funds for launch vehicles, especially in the super-heavy category, but ensured that all payloads planned until 2030 will be launched to orbit," Roscosmos head, igor Komarov told reporters.
    "We are planning to resolve this issue by developing Angara-5B [by adding extra booster stage], and I believe it is an optimal variant," Komarov said.
    According to previous reports, the decision to abandon plans to build a super-heavy launch vehicle from scratch allows Roscosmos to reduce the project's cost tenfold to 60 billion rubles ($1.1 bln).
    Earlier this month, Komarov said that the first launch of the Angara super-heavy carrier rocket will take place in 2021.
    The Angara family of space launch vehicles has been in development since 1995. The new Angara rockets will increase Russia's independence in space exploration, according to Roscosmos.

    Angara-A5V is a cost effective and low risk option , The only challenge would be develop a reliable cryo engine for the upper stage , it would be 12 T to GTO or 35 T to LEO not bad.

    Any ways since we are end of mp.net by 1st may of true , then you can try to be on http://www.russiadefence.net/ , I have been there for few years now and it keeps getting better.

    Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) has finalized a draft Federal Space Program (FCP) for 2016-2025 years.

    http://www.kommersant.ru/Doc/2714095

    As the "Y", the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) has finalized a draft Federal Space Program (FCP) for 2016-2025 years. Managed to cut costs by more than $ 400 billion to $ 2 trillion rbl.-. To this end, had to abandon a number of scientific devices, extra heavy missiles and 29 development work, but keep the manned flight around the Moon. The agency expects that in some segments of the program, even profitable.

    According to "Kommersant", most of the provisions of the PCF-2025 was developed under the previous head of Roscosmos Oleg Ostapenko: for their implementation required 2.436 trillion rubles., Of which 2.117 trillion space agency planned to receive from the budget, and another 319 billion from non-budgetary rbl.- sources. Submit a draft to the government, Mr. Ostapenko did not, and his successor in January Igor Komarov had to cut the program because of the crisis: the cost of work has increased by an average of 30%, and reduced government funding (see. Figure). Recall, culminating in this year's PCF-2015 an allocation of 757.1 billion rubles. from the budget and 77.1 billion rubles. from extra-budgetary sources.

    "B" was able to get acquainted with the new design of the PCF-2025. From this it follows that considering two options for optimization. The first involves the full implementation of works on space communications, remote sensing (RS), fundamental space research (FCI), the ISS mission and research works, but folded the promising manned transport spacecraft, controls for deep space and maintenance of vehicles in orbit, as well as work on the lunar base and super-heavy launch.

    The second option was limited to bringing to the minimum level of orbital constellations of communication satellites, remote sensing and FCI, a shift of two - five years the terms of readiness of the new generation of devices socio-economic and scientific purposes, as well as reducing launch vehicles "Progress" from four to three in year. But this option to work on projects manned spacecraft new generation of super-heavy elements groundwork for rockets (to which promised to return after the 2025 th), and further includes the development of launchers medium and heavy class load capacity up to 38 tons, and interorbital tugs for manned flight around the moon in 2025. Roscosmos believe that the second option, although it provides a reduction in orbital groupings of communication satellites, remote sensing and the FCI to the minimum necessary, it is still ensure the implementation of "Basic Policy of the Russian Federation in space activities until 2030" (to increase system capacity to 2.4 Relay Gbit / sec., and personal communications - up to 60 Gbit / d.). According to a source "b" in the Russian Space Agency on April 15 meeting of the Scientific and Technical Council, first deputy director of the Central Research Institute of Mechanical Engineering Alexander Danyluk recommended to support the second option. Manual agency did so.

    In the previous version of FCP-2025 most of the money - 1728000000000 rbl.- agency planned to spend on research and development activities ( see. "Kommersant" on November 12, 2014 ). The updated version of the program share of R & D remains the same: from 2.004 trillion on them will take about 1.42 trillion rubles. However, in order to meet this parameter had to be excluded from the plan of 29 OCD 416. Thus, for example, reduced OCD "Avionics" (on-board data-processing system with a network-centric distributed architecture), OCD "Impact ASPOS OKP" (system space means of influence on asteroids, comets and debris), OCD "Liquidator" (complex provides remote spacecraft and upper stages from geostationary orbit) and others.

    Reduced funding PCF-2025 resulted in a decrease in the number and year launched spacecraft. For example, in the years 2016-2020 were orbit output 15, 20, 19, 21 and 28, respectively, the satellites, now - 11, 11, 18, 27 and 17 (taking into account extra six satellites ERS). Further, in the years 2020-2024 under the program FCI was to be launched 42 scientific apparatus, now - 22. Under the reduction were astronomical satellites "Spectrum-M" and "Gamma-400" biosatellites "Return-MCA" and interplanetary spacecraft "Luna Grunt ", relay satellite" Ray-NP ", one unit of RS" Resource-P ", as well as satellites" Canopus-B "and" Canopus-VM ". However, the program provides 2025 grouping remote sensing satellites of the new generation of 23 units. And just Roscosmos expects to launch about 180 satellites in the interests of the Russian Federation.

    To save money and decided to abandon the development of extra heavy rocket from scratch - it will save about 215 billion rubles. But Roscosmos plans to upgrade the complex "Angara-A5" to the option "Angara-A5V" (adding hydrogen third step) - it would cost only 60 billion rubles. ( see. "Kommersant" on March 13 ). Total test program has three missiles A5V start (usually "Angara-A5" - six). Affect and reduce the ISS: the creation of the module OKA-T decided to abandon. It is expected that in the near future the document will be sent for approval to the government.

    Overall Roskosmos managed to reduce the PCF of about 440 billion rubles. In the final version 1.111 trillion rubles. (More than 55% of total funding) will go to space communications, remote sensing, launch vehicle and mission control on projects FCI - about 199.3 billion rubles. (10%), while the manned program - 694.1 billion rubles. (34.6%). The document notes that the implementation of the BDS-2025 in 2016-2025 years should bring profit at 1.806 trillion rubles .: primarily from the sale of satellite communications services - 633.7 billion rubles. and manned missions - 212.6 billion rubles.

    Yesterday, officials of the agency did not comment on the provisions of the PCF-2025, but said that at today's press conference it will Igor Komarov and the Head of Scientific and Technical Council of the Russian Space Agency Yuri Koptev.
