Submarines, bombers and and a mobile launcher. Four ballistic missiles, two in each direction, crossed the Arctic hemisphere Thursday evening.

A salvo of two missiles was launched from a Pacific Fleet submarine in the Sea of Okhotsk towards the Chizha test range on the Kanin Peninsula in Arkhangelsk. A Northern Fleet submarine launched another ballistic missile from the Barents Sea that hit the target at the Kura test range on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Far East. Continue reading

Report comes after series of weapons tests by Kim Jong-un’s forces

Elite North Korean soldiers are being armed with “nuclear backpacks”, a source has claimed as tensions increase over the authoritarian state’s attempts at military escalation.

An anonymous source told Radio Free Asia special units have been formed since March to carry the weapons and had been taking part in simulated training exercises with dummy bombs. Continue reading

Report: Iran ‘sanitized’ Parchin nuke site before inspection

The report by Fox News said that a “containment vessel” for testing nuclear equipment was removed from Parchin. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had earlier confirmed that the “vessel” was at the site.

A source told Fox News the missing device was also used to test triggers that could detonate a warhead. The source added that removal of the equipment would have made it more difficult for inspectors to test for radioactive residue. Continue reading

China’s Newest Missile Set for VJ Day Parade

DF-16s going on a tour

China is quickly upgrading its formidable missile forces to match advances in defense technologies. While existing Chinese forces make use of anti-air and ballistic to deny access around large portions of airspace, ocean and land bordering China, newer missiles will be more effective against elements of America’s Air Sea Battle concept, like stealthy drones, and mobile enemy targets like anti-ship missile launchers.

Russia pursues hypersonic weapon research

Russia is developing a hypersonic weapon program. It involves more than 60 companies and is scheduled for completion this summer. Launched in the former USSR, hypersonic weapon research was resumed in post-Soviet Russia in 2009 under the umbrella of the state-owned Tactical Missiles Corporation.

Hypersonic missiles can travel at a speed surpassing that of sound (1,200 km/h) by ten or more times and are capable of penetrating any missile defense, says Alexander Khramchikhin, deputy head of the Institute for Political and Military Analysis in Moscow. Continue reading

Russia arms Syria with powerful ballistic missiles

The deadlier the Syrian arsenal, the higher chance of being able to effectively strike back. The higher chance of being able to effectively strike back, the higher probability Damascus will be flattened. Point being: Dictator or not, and no one questions that Bashar al Assad is a bad man, this is a man who will not back down.

What makes him more dangerous is that he saw what happened with Saddam Hussein, Hosni Mubarak and then Muammar Gaddafi. He knows surrendering is a concrete death sentence.

He is nearly cornered with his back against the wall and will more than likely choose to use every means necessary to defend his corrupt regime. And by defence, we’re talking the use of WMDs. WMDs are the proverbial “line in the sand” and once they are used, all bets are off — ergo, Damascus shall be no more as foretold in Isaiah 17:1.

Hours after NATO agreed on Tuesday to send Patriot missiles to Turkey because of the crisis in Syria, Russia delivered its first shipment of Iskander missiles to Syria.

The superior Iskander can travel at hypersonic speed of over 1.3 miles per second (Mach 6-7) and has a range of over 280 miles with pinpoint accuracy of destroying targets with its 1,500-pound warhead, a nightmare for any missile defense system.
