Ministry of Defense: near Orenburg, a missile regiment with the Avangard complex began to be re-equipped

MOSCOW, November 18 – RIA Novosti. The Russian Ministry of Defense said that the next missile regiment began to be re-equipped with the Avangard strategic missile system with a hypersonic glide unit in the Orenburg region.

“The Strategic Missile Forces began to re-equip the next missile regiment of the Yasnensky missile formation with the Avangard missile system. At this time, the missile is loaded into the silo launcher,” the ministry said.

The ministry added that the infrastructure of the emplacement area is being prepared for the next missile regiment to be put on combat duty. In addition to the facilities of the combat launch complex, it includes places for preparing duty shifts, conducting combat missions and resting personnel.

“The implementation of the planned 2022 measures for the rearmament of the Strategic Missile Forces will increase the combat capabilities of the ground component of the strategic nuclear forces to fulfill strategic deterrence tasks,” the Ministry of Defense said.

According to the developers, the Avangard hypersonic warhead can reach speeds of up to 27 times faster than the speed of sound, that is, depending on the conditions, about 33,000 kilometers per hour.

The first regiment, armed with an Avangard hypersonic gliding wing strategic missile system, entered service with the Yasnenskaya Missile Division in 2019. As previously reported in the Strategic Missile Forces, by 2023 the Avangard hypersonic glide unit and the second regiment of intercontinental ballistic missiles will undertake combat duty.
