New Russian hypersonic missile with a nuclear power plant “Avangard” will get heat-resistant titanium housing development NGOs “machine-building”, told RIA Novosti source in the military-industrial complex.
“NPO Engineering” is working on determining the strength characteristics of new titanium alloys in conditions of high heat. These studies need to develop a corps of the latest hypersonic missiles, including Intercontinental ballistic missiles Avangard”, — said the Agency interlocutor.
As explained by the Agency’s chief editor of the magazine “Arsenal Fatherland” Victor murakhovski, developed in Russia titanium alloys designed for hypersonic missiles at five Mach numbers and the solutions obtained are used not only in the “Avant-garde”, but in the case maneuvering warhead missile “Sarmat”.
“While these missiles the application of new alloys is not limited to — there are other projects, which is publicly presented,” — said the expert.
About “the Vanguard” said the President of Russia Vladimir Putin on March 1, 2018 in the message to the Federal Assembly. According to the head of state, the complex is able to fly at speeds 20 times the speed of sound, while “he goes to the goal like a meteor like fireball, the temperature at the surface of the product 1600-2000 degrees Celsius”, and “winged block securely managed”.
In the same month, the country’s defense Ministry announced a contract for the serial production of the first batch of “avant-gardes”.
