Navy (Navy) Russia’s armed with six types of sea-based missiles, equipped with liquid-propellant engines and has the ability to equip a nuclear warhead, was written by the Director of the information project about nuclear weapons Federation of American scientists Hans Kristensen.
According to him, we are talking about anti-ship missile systems (missiles) P-500 “Bazalt” (P-1000 “Volcano” in the modern version), P-700 “Granit”-10 “Grenades”, P-270 Moskit, R-29RM (R-29RMU2 “Sineva” R-29RMU2.1 “Liner” in the modern variant) and P-800 “Onyx”.
Thus Christensen commented on the message about the incident under Nanoclay, accompanied by a short-term increase of the radiation background in the area of the incident.
A state of emergency under the Severodvinsk, which occurred August 8, which in testing a liquid rocket engine, there was an explosion and fire led to the deaths of two specialists of the Ministry of defense of Russia. Details about the incident, the Russian defense Ministry did not disclose. TASS sources in the emergency services reported that the fire occurred on the ship. On the background of these events were reported on short-term excess of background radiation in Severodvinsk, which is currently the norm.
Later it became known that on August 8 the district Nonoxy near Severodvinsk, where is the 45th state Central naval test range of the Russian Navy, could pass tests of mobile launchers for hypersonic missiles “Zircon”. There was seen a transport tanker “Serebryanka”, intended for the collection and storage of radioactive waste, as well as two more unidentified vessel, barge and coastal land area, presumably to launch cruise missiles with global range “Burevestnik” with a small nuclear power plant.
In high degree of readiness of the ship hypersonic missile “Zircon”, designed to replace the P-700 “Granit” has unified with missiles P-800 “Onyx” and “Caliber” of the launcher and, presumably, is equipped with rocket engines on liquid fuel, but has not officially received a land-based mobile launcher.
