    Thanks for the article. Yes a HGV would make a PBV redundant.
    I just wonder what range a 8 ton Rubezh, without PBV, and a single Avantgard HGV flying shallow (~150km) trajectory could have. If a full ICBM range of 8000-11000km would be possible it would be a revolutionary new miniaturized system.

      I suppose it is no news to most of you that
      https://russianplanes.net/new
      is up again?

      At least it is not dead (yet).

        What makes you think Rubezh is 8 T ? Rubezh is a technology demonstrator for new class of warhead that does not rely on PBV , If you read Yuri Solmonov interview he says exactly that , The range of Yars or Topol-M or Rubzeh would be same ~ 11,000 km.

          I thought the cancelled RS-26 Rubezh was due to be a short range ICBM with a range just about the INF threshold?

            No , it has similar intercontinental range

              @Austin

              I discuss the number rpgtype7v posted here. I have serious doubts whether a 8-10 ton 11000km range single warhead ICBM could be possible but in light of a HGV like the Avantgard, my questions have arised.

                There is no light 8-10 T 11K range icbm ,Rubezh was similer to Yars but a fatter booster for quck boost phase and since it had no PBV it made the length smaller , Well if you can make the warhead fly with its own propulsion and guidance and out there in space you dont need much fuel then the range of warhead can be significantly extended and it opens the possibility of deploying a single warhead out of few it carries in midcourse of flight or any time after 1st stage ends.

                  Great news that RP.net is (kind of) alive. Hoping it is succesfully rehosted and back to its former glory.

                    Many are assuming the military posture has weakened because of the spending cuts. Since its not from a lack of funds, this is not true. The ability to ramp up military spending in the event of war is there. Reserves have climbed to 5th in the world in 2018.

                      Forex reserves has nothing to do with military spending but has to do with external payment that Central Bank does either to import goods or pay of debt denominated in USD/Euro etc. Or if companies need Forex they would purchase it from Banks.

                      Military spending is a function of budgetary spending and what percentage of spending makes up for military spending for Russia it is 17 % of total Budget spending which is in Rouble and not USD , So Forex is a useless benchmark for military spending.

                        ^Not correct. What you said is typically correct. But not in this case. Russia is buying FX reserves with raw revenue.

                        The finance ministry has decided to replenish coffers and insulate the rouble by setting a budget rule.
                        According to the rule, the finance ministry will buy foreign currency when Russia’s crude blend Urals URL-E trades above $40 per barrel, the level factored into the budget. The higher the oil price, the bigger the forex purchases would be.

                        Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said the finance ministry could spend around 2 trillion roubles ($35 billion) on foreign currency next year if Urals prices are at $54-55 per barrel.

                        “This would more than offset the envisaged reserves spending next year,” Siluanov said, adding that his ministry would increase foreign exchange purchases next year to level of up to 70 percent of non-oil and gas budget revenues from around 30-40 percent at present.

                        The central bank carries out these purchases for the finance ministry but does not consider them as interventions aimed at bringing the rouble to a certain level as the rouble has had a free-floating status since 2015.

                          Again you are typing a bunch of words and posting articles from here and there which has no relevance to general budget spending and defence spending

                          What finance ministry does or Central bank does is its own house keeping to defend the rouble if required or spend the forex as it sees it ...... You amount of forex does not affect the budget which depends on revenue expenditure and deficit which are all in roubles !

                            Is Russia cutting defense spending ? Yes.

                            Is the financial positioning of the country weakening ? No.

                              As rumored last year, a contract has been signed with Uzbekistan for "more than 10" Mi-35M. Prices will be similar to close allies, "internal Russian pricing".
