Description: This is an article about atrrs-portal, which introduces the information of Russian S-500. United States defense officials are concerned that Russia’s cutting-edge S-500 missile defense system is so good that the best stealth warplanes in the Pentagon’s arsenal will be unable to do anything about it.
The Russian aerospace forces VK has tested a new upgraded version of the 53 t6 gazelle interceptor missile at the sir Michigan test site in Kazakhstan on November 24th.
The missile is one of the key components of Moscow’s and people istic missile defense system. The pro systems new modernized anti rocket interceptor successfully accomplished the task reaching the desired goal on the time and lauded.
Russian air and space Defense Forces Colonel Andrew Cod Co said in a Russian Defense Ministry release the Russian Defense Ministry did not provide much information about the details of the test or what kind of missile they were testing.
However travelpod voke, an independent analyst based in Geneva who runs the Russian nuclear forces research project, offered some insights. The interceptor was described as a new modernized one. So this is probably the same interceptor that was launched in June 2017 public said.
Given that the launch container is essentially the same as that of the 53 t6 slash gazelle missile . The new interceptor is likely to be a 53 t6 upgrade and probably a modest upgrade at that. If the June launch was supported by industry representatives, this one appears to be done by the vks crew alone.

The short-range interceptor is meant to be deployed against an incoming vehicle at a speed of 3 km/s and destroyed with a three kiloton nuclear blast.
The missile was developed during Soviet times and is no longer produced. But an estimated 100 projectiles are either being stored or are deployed in the 68 silos of the a 135 ABM system protecting the Russian capital.
According to a source cited by Gazeta dot ru news website, the missile tested is a brand-new replacement for the discontinued 53 t6. The interceptor reportedly has a new hell with a composite material heat shield, a more powerful engine that boosts its speed to four kilometers per second and an upgraded guidance system capable of withstanding the pressure of greater acceleration which can reach almost 300 grams. The source said the missile also reportedly has a higher flight ceiling and longer range than its predecessor.
