    By Anne M. Amato
    NORWALK — In the dark and shadowy world of Internet bloggers and conspiracy theorists, Christopher Rodia is a mystery man connected to last month’s school shooting in Newtown. But police say that’s just not true.
    Still, that hasn’t stopped the postings and hasn’t stopped Rodia from receiving death threats.
    Sites like USAHitman, “a conspiracy and alternative news site,” say the black Honda confiscated at the scene of the Dec. 14 mass murders belonged to Rodia, based on a policeman’s call to dispatch on an audiotape posted by Radioman911TV.
    On that tape, Rodia’s name can be heard shortly after a police officer calls in the license plate, 872-YEO, as the “possible suspect vehicle.”
    But while Rodia admits to run-ins with the law, including several pending larceny, forgery and narcotics cases, he says he wasn’t anywhere near the school on the day of the shootings that left 26 dead, including 20 first-graders.
    “That was such a heinous crime, I don’t want to be connected to it in any way,” Rodia said.
    He says he was miles away in Greenwich, getting a warning for illegally parking in a fire zone.
    “I was with my niece driving my mother’s sage green Nissan,” the 43-year-old Norwalk resident said.
    Greenwich Detective Vincent O’Banner remembers pulling Rodia over in that city around the time of the Newtown shootings. “I do remember that,” he said. “I gave him a verbal warning.”
    While the school shooting is still an active case, State Police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said there was only one shooter: Adam Lanza, 20, who took his own life at the scene.
    “We aren’t looking for anybody else — for any other person,” Vance said Wednesday, adding he has never heard of Rodia.
    The car confiscated at the scene, the black Honda with that license plate, belongs to a relative of Lanza’s and not to Rodia, he said.
    But that’s hasn’t eased Rodia’s fears, the result of numerous death threats he has received due to the Internet postings.
    “A guy in one of the calls starts swearing at me, then says he’ll kill me and burn down my house while I’m sleeping,” he said.
    “I’m a big boy and can take care of myself,” he said, but added his 72-year-old mother, Diane, is afraid to have her young grandchildren come to visit because of the threats.
    “We shouldn’t have to be worrying about this,” his mother said.
    Norwalk police have been called, Rodia said.
    “We were there on Dec. 27 about a posting on YouTube,” said Norwalk Police Lt. Praveen John. A complaint was filed, but it didn’t include concerns about any threats, he said, adding that particular post has been taken down.
    Other postings, including those by USAHitman, and others like Godlike Productions, a site for conspiracy theorists as well as those interested in UFOs and the lunatic fringe, remain on the Internet.
    The headline on one USAHitman posting reads: “Adam Lanza’s car registered to Christopher Rodia: The conspiracy begins.”
    That site is run by Jim, a New Jersey resident who declined to give his last name. He calls himself a blogger and said posting stories like the one about Rodia is his “hobby.”
    He said he didn’t verify the information he reposts from other sites to see if it’s accurate.
    “I have a full-time job and don’t have time to research the stories,” he said. “I like to post things I find interesting. I update the stories when more stuff comes out.”
    “That’s the problem,” said Norwalk police Lt. John. “Some things are posted, but not verified.”
    However, “Spitfire list,” a website of blogs by anti-fascist researcher and radio personality Dave Emory, has updated its information concerning Rodia, saying he “appears to be innocent and only coincidentally caught up in this event” and not driving the “possible suspect vehicle” mentioned on the tape.
    “This is a reminder of why we must main*tain the stance of really believ*ing these indi*vid*u*als that get swept up in the post-tragedy aftermath are inno*cent until proven guilty, espe*cially early on when minimal info is available,” according to a posting on that site. “The guy (Rodia) didn’t deserve this so if you meet him, buy him a beer (assum*ing you’re 21+).”
    As for Rodia’s pending criminal cases, he said they’re related to a problem he had with pain killers, the result of taking medication for an injury he sustained about a year ago.
    He said he’s been in drug counseling and has been “clean since July.”ť

    Companion Post: Underwater strategic destroyer "Dolgoruky" in the water carries 16-20 Bulava Missiles, more to be deployed soon...

    Russia’s Newest Ballistic Missile Sub Something Something Red October


    Andrew Tarantola


    While Russia's submarine fleet remains a formidable force in the 21st Century, the country still relies on craft built before the Iron Curtain lifted. Today, a lot of the subs are getting long in the tooth. However, the new SSBN Yury Dolgoruky will provide Mother Russia with a fresh set of nuclear fangs.

    The SSBN Yury Dolgoruky was designed by the Rubin Marine Equipment Design Bureau. It is both the first new Borei Class and the first sub constructed since the fall of the Soviet Union. Construction began in earnest way back in 1996. But there were budget constraints, and multiple redesigns (due in part to the failures of new ballistic missiles being developed in tandem with the sub). So it didn't launch until 2008.

    Once it was in the water, the SSBN Yury Dolgoruky easily passed its sea trials. It entered active duty last July, at 557 feet long, with a 44 foot beam and 32-foot draught. Submerged, it displaces 24,000 tons and keep its 130-member crew underwater for up to 100 days. A single ОК-650В nuclear reactor powers a pump-jet propulsion system—another first for Russian subs. This allows the sub a top speed of 29 knots while operating more quietly than conventional screw propulsion.

    This $890-million sub also features a hydro-dynamically efficient hull coated with anechoic material. This reduces the sub's acoustic signature much the same way that the skin of a Stealth Fighter reduces the plane's radar signature. In the event of an emergency, the Dolgoruky incorporates a floating rescue chamber that can accommodate the entire crew.

    Full size


    The SSBN Yury Dolgoruky also carries enough armarment to start World War III and IV. It's outfitted with 16, 45-ton Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBM)—a derivation of the Topol-M ICBM developed at the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology. Each SLBM employs multiple warheads, and each of those can carry a 100-150kt nuclear payload. According to an RIA Novosti report, it could add up to a total payload of 600 nuclear warheads per sub. Even if a missile defense system spots and counters these projectiles, they've still got a good chance of hitting their target. These three-stage missiles measure 40 feet in length and are tough enough to withstand a nuclear countermeasure as close as 500 meters without failing.

    Other subs had better stear clear of the Dolgoruky as well, lest they meet one of a half dozen RPK-2 Viyuga missiles, firing underwater from a 533-mm torpedo tube at Mach .9. If things really get ugly, the sub can drop a a 90R nuclear depth charge.

    Two additional Borei subs—SSBN Alexander Nevsky and SSBN Vladimir Monomakh—are currently under construction with another five ready by 2020. With this bristling offensive capability, the Borei class is expected to become the backbone of the Russian submarine fleet.

    Russian Navy substantially increased its striking power: in Severodvinsk - in the presence of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu - the more solemnly, after raising the flag over her Andrejevske, strategic nuclear submarines launched the fourth generation "Yuri Dolgoruky".


    It is the newest and most modern submarine Project 955 class "Boreas" by Russian admirals considered strategic missile submarine destroyer.

    These "underwater destroyers" should become the strong arm of Russia's naval strategic nuclear forces in the 21st century.


    The ceremony was held at the famous military shipyard "Sevmaš," Shoigu and then - using a secure connection - everything about informed the Head of State and Chief of the Armed Forces of the RF Vladimir Putin.

    "Dolgoruky" is about 170 meters long, width - 13.5 meters. Carries 16 ballistic missiles strategic "Bulava-30" (according to Western classification SS-NM-30) and nasjavremenija torpedoes.

    Russia has completed the construction of two submarines of this class.

    "Underwater destroyer" of the same class and generation, "Alexander Nevsky" is currently undergoing testing and teophodna Russian Navy will have it available during the 2013 year.

    On the last day of the 2012th the water was lowered its "twin brother" - "Vladimir Mono" which, as the najavbljuje, be najbešumniji.

    "Sevmaš" has already started construction, and the fourth "Boreas" - "Prince Vladimir", but perfected by the project - 955A.

    Russia planned to build eight strategic "submarine destroyer" - three and five 955 - 955A.

    The completion of this test was first submarines said deputy defense minister for armaments, Yuri Borisov at a briefing for reporters the military.

    He also said that the Russian Air Force 2012 received 40 aircraft including planes multipurpose Su-30 MS, MiG-29K, Frontovski Su-34 bombers, combat training Yak-130, and 127 helicopters (Mi-28N, Ka-52, modernized Mi-24, which are undergone a thorough upgrade, Mi-8 and others).

    "Yuri Dolgoruky" is designed to St. Petersburg Central Constructors Bureau "Rubin" under the leadership of Vladimir Zadornova. The foundation board in her body laid by the mayor of Moscow, Yuri Luzhkov, and the head of administration of the President of Russia, Antolij Čubajs.

    Initially the plan was to "submarine destroyer" is armed with a new solid-fuel rocket, "Bark", which is made in the state rocket center "Makejev". However, three missile tests have been completed and failed. Moreover, despite the technical task to be done rockets weighing up to 40 tons, experts from the Urals were offered a rocket weighing 90 tons (later said they wanted to use it on heavy strategic missile submarine 941 project applications, Class "Shark" instead of rockets lifted R-39).

    Making complex strategic battle for the "Boreas" government commission has delegated the Moscow Institute of Thermal Engineering and chief designer Yuri Solomon, whose new solid-fuel rocket RT-2PM2 "Topol-M" (SS-27), without regard to their financial difficulties, began to enter into a strategic rocket forces weapons.

    For the investigation of the "Bulava" even changed one of the class projects raketonosca 941 "Shark" with the number of K-208 "Dmitry Donska", which is out of missiles.

    U.S. national security adviser Tom Donilon on Monday delivered a letter from President Obama to Russian President Vladimir Putin that touched on strategic matters including additional nuclear-weapon cuts and missile defense, the Christian Science Monitor reported.

    "The message is written in a very constructive tone and contains a range of suggestions for further deepening of our bilateral dialogue and cooperation," Putin foreign policy counselor Yuri Ushakov said to reporters. "Some ideas have already been talked about but there are some new elements which our country will study in the most attentive way and give a corresponding response."

    Washington and Moscow have long been at odds over Obama administration plans for ballistic missile defense, particularly deployment of interceptors in Europe. That dispute is seen as an obstacle to bilateral atomic arsenal reductions that go beyond the New START pact's limits of 1,550 strategic warheads and 700 delivery systems.

    The White House on Monday announced the president would hold a summit with Putin in September when he takes part in a Group of 20 meeting in Russia, Reuters reported.

    A separate Obama-Putin summit has already been scheduled for June in Northern Ireland.

    Russia to Load 16 Missiles on New Subs

    April 15, 2013



    Russia intends to load 16 Bulava ballistic missiles on each of its new Borei-class submarines, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported on Sunday.

    The vessels were initially intended to be installed with 20 missiles, Interfax reported. However, that was found to demand changes including a longer hull that could undermine the submarines' capacity to make rapid changes in direction.

    "Sixteen missiles are enough to deliver a nuclear strike," according to one unidentified private defense sector insider told Interfax. "What is more important is to be able to clandestinely reach an attack position and launch missiles on designated targets."

    The first of eight anticipated Borei-class submarines, the Yuri Dolgoruky, has entered active naval service. The Bulava missile, which had a troubled development, are designed to fly up to 5,000 miles and to carry as many as 10 warheads.

    Admiral: US submarine forces decline as China, Russia, Iran advance warfare capabilities

    Published September 13, 2013Washington Free Beacon


    Super-modern, powerful and almost noiseless Russian nuclear submarine Vladimir Monomakh

    China, Russia, and Iran pose regional and strategic submarine threats and are building up undersea warfare capabilities as the Navy is cutting its submarine force by 30 percent, the admiral in charge of Pentagon submarine programs told Congress on Thursday.

    Rear Adm. Richard Breckenridge, director of Navy undersea warfare programs, said the decline of U.S. submarines is placing a key U.S. military advantage at risk.

    "Our adversaries are not standing still, and so even though we have an advantage and we have a lead, we can't sit on our lead," Breckenridge told a hearing of the House Armed Services seapower subcommittee.

    "We have to continue to move or we do have the potential within 20 years of losing this crown jewel, this advantage that we have in the undersea domain," he said.

    Breckenridge then outlined advances in the submarine warfare programs of China, Russia, and Iran.

    China's submarine warfare power is advancing in both numbers of submarines and growing sophistication and missile capability.

    Beijing's submarines currently are "predominantly a maritime, regional undersea force," he said.

    Russia’s second next-gen nuclear sub enters service

    Published time: December 23, 2013 04:12
    Edited time: December 23, 2013 15:57

    Video: http://rt.com/news/russia-nuclear-submarine-nevsky-613/




    The nuclear submarine "Alexander Nevsky".(Screenshot from Ruptly video)

    On Monday, the Russian Navy’s second Borey-class nuclear-powered submarine, the Aleksandr Nevsky, has entered service. The sub is part of a next-generation class that will be the backbone of Russia’s sea-based nuclear deterrent for decades to come.

    The ceremony marking the submarine’s entry into service was initially scheduled for Dec. 21, but was postponed by two days. Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu was the highest-ranking government official present at a navy shipyard in the northern city of Severodvinsk, for the ceremony of the Aleksandr Nevsky raising her new flag.

    “The St. Andrew’s flag raised today is the boat’s combat emblem, which symbolizes her readiness to defend this nation’s interests in seas and oceans,” Shoigu said.

    The submarine had been undergoing sea trials since October 2010 and completed them in September. It was also involved in test-firing Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles, the designated nuclear weapon for all Borey-class subs.

    “We had some 14 sea voyages. The boat proved to be quite reliable. She is also very fine in terms of speed and maneuverability,” Vasily Tankovid, Captain first class of the Aleksandr Nevsky, told RT.

    Aleksandr Nevsky is the first series-built submarine of the class. Its predecessor, the first-in-class sub Yury Dolgoruky, has been part of the Navy since January.


    Screenshot from Ruptly video


    “Aleksandr Nevsky has completed all its trials. All the specifications laid out in the project have been fully confirmed,” said Nikolay Semakov, chief engineer at the Sevmash shipyard, which builds Borey-class subs. “I can assure you that the Navy is getting a modern boat on a par with its foreign counterparts.”

    Two additional Borey-class submarines are currently in the making, with Vladimir Monomakh undergoing sea trials and expected to enter service next year and Knyaz Vladimir currently being built.

    As many as eight submarines of the class may eventually be brought into service. Five of them, starting with the Knyaz Vladimir, will feature a significantly upgraded version of the Borey design. They can carry 20 of the solid-propellant Bulava ICBMs, as opposed to 16 for the original version.

    The Borey-class subs are 170 meters long, can dive up to 450 meters and travel at speeds of up to 29 knots (54 kilometers per hour) when submerged. In addition to the ballistic missile launchers the subs are equipped with 533-millimeter torpedo tubes and carry RPK-2 Viyuga anti-submarine missile systems.

    Each vessel has a crew of 107 sailors and officers, and are fitted with a floating rescue chamber to evacuate all personnel in an emergency.

    Submarine " Severodvinsk " new Russian Russian submarine fleet will have eight submarines series " Jasenja " each of which will have the 24 long-range cruise missiles " Granit " with a warhead of 200 kilotons . Its technical features will make it completely invisibly in the world's oceans , which means that the " Severodvinsk " will be virtually resistant to the latest systems on counter- surveillance and weapons " - written by British newspaper

    Introduction in its battle fleet latest multipurpose nuclear submarine " Severodvinsk " ( from " Jasenja " ) , Russia ranks first in the world in the field of submarine technology , published by Britain's The Sunday Times.

    Naval experts believe that the completion of testing of the submarine " Severodvinsk " indicates that Russia has become a leader in podnorničkim technology " - said The Sunday Times and said that testing will be completed next spring and will be " Severodvinsk " Since then placed on combat duty in the Arctic.

    "New Russian Russian submarine fleet will have eight submarines series " Jasenja " each of which will have the 24 long-range cruise missiles " Granit " with warheads of 200 kilotons .

    "The U.S. is most concerned about the emergence of a new Russian submarine. We do not even know half of what is on the " Severodvinsk " - The Sunday Times quoted a source from the intelligence services .

    Multi-purpose nuclear submarine " Severodvinsk " of 30 December is the composition of the Russian naval fleet .

    The submarine " Severodvinsk " ( Project 885 ) is made in the shipyard " Sevmaš " in 1993 .

    The second submarine of the same series ( 885m project ) - " Kazan " - Launched in the summer of 2009th , and her complete surrender of the navy planned in 2015. year .

    The third submarine of the series called " Novosibirsk " sailed in 2013.

    Submarines from " Jasenja " are multipurpose nuclear submarines with reduced levels of " acoustic field " . They are armed with cruise missiles of the fourth generation .

    The novelty is that their torpedo appliances are not in front of the submarine , but after the division of the central part of what made ​​it possible to place the antenna on the bow of the new hydroacoustic complex.

    It uses eight vertical launchers to deliver rockets .

    Russian Navy will gain eight of these types of sub by 2020 .

    Russia Develops High-Tech 'Beast From Beneath' Submarine [VIDEO]

    By Lilian Anekwe | January 12, 2014 13:56 PM GMT


    Russia' s president Vladimir Putin (Reuters)

    The UK and the US face the looming threat of a new generation of Russian super-submarines known as "the Beast from Beneath", experts have warned.

    The Russian navy has invested an estimated 54 billion roubles (Ł1bn) to fund the SSGN Severodvinsk K-329, and sources say delivery is expected imminently, since the delivery acceptance certificate was signed on 30 December.

    The K-329 was commissioned in 1993 and originally scheduled for delivery in 1998. The project has been beset by problems and repeated delays.

    The submarine is the first in a fleet of eight new Yasen class submarines – each armed with 24 Granat cruise missiles carrying 200 kiloton warheads, as well as anti-ship missiles, mines and torpedoes.

    The K-329 outstrips the technology of rival submarines used by the British and American navies, and has been compared with the high-tech submarine that was taken over by a rogue Russian captain in the 1990 film The Hunt for Red October, starring Sean Connery.

    The K-329 is designed to be fast and virtually undetectable. The 390-foot submarine has a nuclear power plant that is near silent while running, a hull coated in sound-absorbing material, and can dive to 2,000 feet. The submarine also has a top speed of 30-35 knots (35-40 miles per hour), outpacing most anti-submarine weapons.

    A naval intelligence source told The Sunday Times that Russia's new naval acquisitions would give the UK and US – traditional naval superpowers – cause for concern.

    The source said: "The race is now on to see who can acquire each other's secrets first. We probably only really know half what is on board the K-329. The US navy is particularly concerned because until recently it boasted that its subs were the most sophisticated on the planet."

    Iain Ballantyne, a writer and expert on submarine warfare, said: "The Russian navy submarine force has always been the most elite and prestigious element of the Kremlin's military, so spending billions from oil and gas revenues on new nuclear-powered submarines is entirely in line with that philosophy.

    "President Vladimir Putin has made no secret of his determination to build up the Russian navy to once again act as a powerful global political and military tool in the true Soviet style. There's no doubt the K-329s will be on the cutting-edge and formidable vessels. They will give the two principal submarine operating nations of the West a run for their money."

    Chief of Russia's naval fleet , Admiral Viktor Chirkov found that the new podmorniceveć " build the dock with all the necessary infrastructure"

    Keel laying ceremony diesel - electric submarine class 636 " Krasnodar " was held in the " Admiralty shipyard " in St. Petersburg.

    It will be the fourth of six submarines of this class , which will be to order the Ministry of Defense of Russia to build a war fleet in the Black Sea.

    As pointed out by Russia's navy chief , Admiral Viktor Chirkov , " class 636 submarines will form a group that will allow the Black Sea fleet , together with Overwater forces and protivbrodskom aviation , solve complex tasks in their areas of responsibility . Also, the submarines will increase the potential for ongoing operational formations RM of Russia in the Mediterranean Sea.

    "The General Command RM Russia sees the possibility of using diesel -electric submarines as an important component of the group underwater fleet in the near sea zone. This component will be integrated into a single system of the Armed Forces of Russia - said Chirkov . - The effects of diesel -electric submarines are planned in those whose waters where the use of nuclear submarines is not possible or practical. "

    According to him , " diesel - electric submarines , which are built and designed, will have improved stealth settings , you will endure to keep the sea without refueling and supplies."

    " An important quality of non-nuclear submarine is multi-functionality of their use ( " delovaanja " by Overwater , underwater and ground targets ) , which is determined by the character of modern naval warfare ," - said the Chirkov.

    He stated that the " diesel - electric submarines have the ability to modernization , which will allow you to equip new equipment and radio - electronic warfare ."

    Russian nuclear subs to conduct Bulava missile launches in summer-autumn 2014

    Russia
    March 27, 13:10 UTC+4

    Two strategic Project 955 Borey class nuclear-powered submarines of the Russian Navy will conduct single launches of transcontinental ballistic Bulava missiles in summer-autumn 2014



    Press service for the Northern Fleet of the Western Military District

    MOSCOW, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian strategic nuclear-powered submarines Vladimir Monomakh and Alexander Nevsky will conduct Bulava missile launches in summer-autumn 2014, says a source in the Russian Navy. Two strategic Project 955 Borey class nuclear-powered submarines of the Russian Navy will conduct single launches of transcontinental ballistic Bulava missiles in summer-autumn 2014 as directed by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. This was reported by a source in the General Headquarters of the Russian Navy.

    Vladimir Monomakh is to undergo state tests in summer-autumn this year, including a sub-launch of a Bulava missile in the White Sea aquatorium. The missile will be fired toward the Kura test site in Russia’s far-eastern Kamchatka territory.

    “Alexander Nevsky submarine will also conduct launches of Bulava missiles,” the source added. He also specified that “the two nuclear-powered submarines are expected to conduct four Bulava launches all together.”

    Pentagon: Russian Spy Ship, Tug Operating Near U.S.

    Ships near nuclear submarine base at Kings Bay, Ga.


    A Russian submarine / AP

    BY: Bill Gertz
    April 25, 2014 5:00 am

    A Russian intelligence-gathering ship has been operating off the U.S. East Coast and near the Gulf of Mexico for the past month, the Pentagon said Thursday.

    “We are aware that the Russian ships Viktor Leonov and Nikolay Chiker are currently operating in waters that are beyond U.S. territorial seas but near Cuba,” said Lt. Col. Tom Crosson, a Pentagon spokesman. “We respect the freedom of all nations, as reflected in international law, to operate military vessels beyond the territorial seas of other nations.”

    The Leonov is an intelligence gathering ship outfitted with high-tech electronic spying gear. The Chiker is an ocean-going naval tug that has been accompanying the spy ship on its mission.

    Pentagon officials suspect the ships were part of a spying operation since March against the U.S. nuclear missile submarine base at Kings Bay, Ga. and other U.S. military facilities

    Both ships were detected operating off the coast of Florida near the U.S. Naval Station Mayport, Fla., which is south of the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.

    The Russian intelligence gathering coincides with heightened tensions between the United States and Russia over Moscow’s recent military annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea.

    An official said it is possible that the electronic spying is related to watching U.S. nuclear missile submarines as part of a Russian nuclear exercise.

    According to Russian military press reports, some 10,000 Russian troops and 1,000 pieces of military equipment of the Strategic Missile Forces took part in an exercise April 17 to 19—coinciding with the transit of one of the ships, the Chiker, to Cuba from the coast off northern Florida on April 19.

    “The exercises will test the cohesiveness and skills of units and commands in the process of alerting and the achievement of training objectives under various circumstances and in any time of the day,” Russian defense spokesman told Interfax.

    The Chiker also is known to support submarines and is equipped with lift capability for servicing Russian submarines.

    U.S. officials said in 2012 a Russian Akula attack submarine was detected operating near the East Coast. The Navy denied the sub sailed undetected in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Crosson declined to comment further on the Russian naval activities. “It wouldn’t be appropriate for me to talk about the operations of non-U.S. vessels operating beyond U.S. territorial seas,” he said.

    According to military enthusiast websites, the Leonov is a Vishnya-class medium intelligence ship home ported in Severomorsk and is part of the Kola Peninsula naval forces.

    The ship was commissioned in 1988.

    The ships are designed for signals and communications intelligence gathering through an array of ship-borne sensors. It also is equipped with two 30-millimeter guns and anti-aircraft missiles.

    Wire services reports indicated the Leonov docked in Havana in February and March, and again this month.

    Inside the Ring: Russia tests new intercontinental ballistic missile warhead

    Wednesday, May 21, 2014

    Russia conducted a flight test of an intercontinental ballistic missile Tuesday that state media in Moscow said included the test of an advanced warhead.

    The road-mobile SS-25 missile was fired from a test range at Kapustin Yar in southern Russia to an impact zone in Sary Shagan in neighboring Kazakhstan.


    PHOTOS: Top 10 U.S. fighter jets


    “‘The purpose of the launch was to test a prospective warhead of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” the official Interfax news agency quoted Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Yegorov as saying.

    The RIA Novosti news agency said the test was used to develop a “new combat payload for future ICBMs.”

    No additional details were provided by the Russians.

    Defense analysts say the latest test highlights Moscow’s strategic nuclear modernization program and raises concerns about Russia’s earlier threats to develop missile defense-defeating warheads in response to U.S. and NATO defenses in Europe.

    Former Pentagon official Mark Schneider, who monitors Russian strategic military developments, said the Russians have said the new follow-on SS-27 ICBM and the new SS-NX-32 submarine-launched ballistic missile, known as the Bulava, will be equipped with advanced warheads — up to 10 warheads per missile.

    “Two things are being reported in the Moscow press about the SS-27 and the Bulava — 10 warheads and hypersonic vehicles,” Mr. Schneider said.

    A Russian intercontinental ballistic missile designer, Yuri Solomonov, also has said the new strategic missiles will be equipped with multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles without a “bus” — a component that normally coordinates the firing of multiple warheads.

    Russia, along with China, is developing ultra-high-speed, hypersonic vehicles for launch atop missiles. Hypersonic vehicles, both powered and glide weapons, are designed to travel at the edge of space and are being built to defeat U.S. missile defenses.

    The National Air and Space Intelligence Center stated in a report last year that Russia is working on a new class of hypersonic vehicle designed to “allow Russian strategic missiles to penetrate missile defense systems.”

    The missile test followed a nuclear forces exercise this month that Russian officials described as “massive.”

    The Obama administration is under pressure from Congress to hold Moscow accountable for violations of arms control agreements, including the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty and possibly the 2010 New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.

    CHINESE ELITES’ SPY GAINS

    A senior State Department official said this week he will report to Congress on whether Chinese Communist Party elites are benefiting from Beijing’s economic espionage program.

    Daniel Russel, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, told a House hearing Tuesday that Beijing-backed economic cyber espionage is a major concern.

    Stolen U.S. data is being “transferred to Chinese companies or state-owned enterprises and used for commercial gain,” Mr. Russel told a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific.

    He made the comments under questioning by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican, who asked if party elites also are cashing in on the theft of U.S. trade secrets.

    “Is there evidence that members of the Chinese Communist leadership who have been enriching themselves — we know how wealthy they are — have been involved with the theft of American technology?” he said.

    Mr. Russel promised to investigate the matter and provide a written response.

    Mr. Rohrabacher criticized the Obama administration’s indictment of five People’s Liberation Army hackers on Monday as a hollow gesture.

    “I, of course, was hoping that this so-called pivot to Asia was going to result in a much more aggressive and realistic policy toward what I see is the major threat to America’s security and to free world security and stability and well-being,” he said.

    As China is using military force in the South China Sea to enforce questionable maritime claims, the U.S. response was to indict five PLA hackers, the congressman said.

    “That’s a joke. Five military computer hackers. I’m sure that the gang, the clique that runs China, the dictatorial and brutal and murderous clique that runs China is very impressed with the courage that we have in arresting the five military computer hacks,” Mr. Rohrabacher said.

    Mr. Russel, in response, defended the largely symbolic legal action against the members of a secretive military hacking group, Unit 61398 in Shanghai.

    “This reflects not a response to China’s foreign policy activities, but this reflects the strong commitment by President Obama, in focusing on cybersecurity and cybercrime, to address the challenge posed by Chinese government-sponsored cyber-enabled theft of the trade secrets and sensitive business information of U.S. companies,” Mr. Russel said.

    Mr. Rohrabacher replied: “I would say that he is sending the wrong message, because arresting or indicting five military computer hackers is such a weak response, it will have the opposite reaction from dictators and the people who run China.”

    “They are enriching themselves,” he said. “They brutally stamp out any opposition. There are no opposition parties there. They still kill people for believing in God, like the Falun Gong, who they throw into prison and then have murdered in order to take their organs and sell them. This is not a group of leaders of a country who would be impressed by the fact that five of their lower echelon have been indicted.”

    John Tkacik, a former State Department China expert, said the federal grand jury indictment of the five Chinese hackers provided extensive details on Beijing’s cybercrimes and indicates that China probably uses cyber-penetrations to enrich both the state and Communist Party members “to the tune of trillions, not billions, of dollars.”

    Mr. Tkacik said the National Security Agency, the electronic and cyber spying service, is capable of learning the facts on how Communist Party elites may have benefited from cyber spying.

    “If Treasury’s intelligence coordination shop hasn’t tasked NSA to track Chinese financial trades, they’re not doing their jobs,” he said.

    The NSA, Treasury Department and Federal Reserve Bank could begin by calculating illicit funds gained by so-called “princelings” — the wealthy sons and daughters of party and PLA elites.

    Scores to hundreds of Chinese leaders and their relatives have parked billions of dollars in U.S. banks and other institutions.

    For example, foreign press reports about imprisoned Communist Party Politburo member Bo Xilai, charged with financial corruption, revealed that his wife had transferred $1.7 billion overseas.

    Mr. Tkacik said China uses its economic power to influence global financial and commodities markets, and manipulates those markets on “a galactic scale.”

    “If Chinese steel and aluminum companies have this kind of access to foreign data networks, there can be no doubt that they use it to reap extra billions in profits off of global commodities markets with insider information,” Mr. Tkacik said.

    CYBER SPYING CONCERNS
    The Pentagon’s senior spokesman said Tuesday that the Defense Department shares the rest of the government’s concerns about China’s theft of trade data.

    Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said he is not aware of the specific impact of Monday’s indictment of five members of a Chinese military hacking unit.

    “I can tell you just in general, we share the U.S. government’s concern about intellectual theft and property theft from cyber,” the spokesman said.

    “The president’s been clear, the secretary’s been clear that we remain deeply concerned about these government-sponsored cyber-enabled thefts of trade secrets and other sensitive business information. It’s got to stop. We have the same concerns,” Adm. Kirby said.

    Several U.S. and allied defense contractors have been victims of Chinese cyberattacks. The most damaging case was the loss of secrets related to the Lockheed Martin F-35, the military’s newest jet.

    U.S. defense officials told Inside the Ring in March that F-35 secrets obtained by cyber espionage seven years ago have begun appearing in China’s new J-20 stealth fighter, which appears very similar in design to the F-35.

    Sailed NAJBEŠUMNIJA Russian submarine - FIRST SERIES 885 (code "ASH")

    MULTIPURPOSE fourth generation nuclear submarine "Severodvinsk" was admitted into the composition of the Northern Fleet, said the chief of the Navy, Admiral Viktor Chirkov RF.

    Today was held the ceremony of raising the flag of the "Severodvinsk" - the first sub-class 885 (code "Ash").

    "The plan is to" Severodvinsk "by the end of 2014. Was to take the permanent base of the Northern Fleet submarine force in Zaozersk" - said the admiral.

    The submarine was built in Severodvinsk, Shipyard "Sevmaš" whose leadership is considered the most advanced and najbešumnijom Russian submarine.

    The main feature of the class 885 submarines is their truly multi purpose, that is, the ability to attack not only ships and submarines opponents, but also coastal targets.

    These submarines will carry the latest cruise missiles "Movement" and "Onyx".

    Admiral Chirkov for "Severodvinsk" said the outstanding and it carries a cruise missile from a vertical takeoff.

    According to him, the combat capabilities and the other submarines do not carry non-nuclear weapon will be substantially increased so that will be soon with their weapons to be integrated and "promising robotic systems."

    Combat forces RM RF is currently connected and strategic submarine class 955 ("Boreas"), which should become the basis of naval nuclear forces of Russia.

    State program of armaments to the 2020 provides for the connection of combat forces RM eight Russian strategic missile submarines.

    MOSCOW, October 29 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has successfully test-fired a Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) from the Borey-class Yury Dolgoruky nuclear-powered submarine, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

    The missile was launched from the submerged submarine at a location in the Barents Sea and hit a designated target at the Kura test range on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula, the ministry said in a statement.

    According to the statement, it was the first operational test launch of Bulava in line with the program of combat training. All previous launches were part of development testing.

    The three-stage Bulava SLBM carries up to 10 independent warheads and has a range of 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles).

    Earlier in October, a source in the Russian military-industrial complex said there would be two Bulava launches by the end of 2014, one from the the Alexander Nevsky nuclear submarine in November, and one - from Yury Dolgoruky in October.

    In September, a Bulava missile was successfully test-fired from the Borey-class Vladimir Monomakh nuclear-powered submarine.

    Bulava testing has encountered several failures in the past. In September 2013, during trials of the Aleksander Nevsky nuclear submarine a Bulava rocket malfunctioned.

    Following this incident, five additional Bulava launches were ordered.

    Despite the test failures, the Russian military insisted there was no alternative to the Bulava as the main armament for Russia’s new Borey-class strategic missile submarines that are expected to become the backbone of the Russian Navy’s strategic nuclear deterrent force.

    Boys, I strongly suggest you be ready for anything. Seriously.

    Make sure you can get home from where ever you are on foot if necessary.

    I'm in the worst position of most here.

    If the crap starts... I'm probably going to die right where I am. So, I'll wish all of you best of luck, God Speed kill AND some commies.

    I am likely to not survive the first few minutes of an exchange as well, something i've fought for decades now to deny but cannot anymore. I am prepared to die as well as I have lived, in fact better. However, given the present political situation, I would say we are instead due for this most un-peaceful peace we live in to continue another couple years, as the Obama Mis-administration continues on it's path of appeasement and malaise.
    "God's an old hand at miracles, he brings us from nonexistence to life. And surely he will resurrect all human flesh on the last day in the twinkling of an eye. But who can comprehend this? For God is this: he creates the new and renews the old. Glory be to him in all things!" Archpriest Avvakum

    A lot of us have the same issue. We're all rather close to targets.

    Worse, almost everyone is downwind of fall out.
