Missile system






That's right, this coupe. A landline phone on the table - because this compartment in the train command center of BZHRK - Battle Railway missile systems.




From 1987 to 1994, twelve such trains, each with three launchers for nuclear missiles disguised as ordinary refrigerator cars (even an expert could not immediately distinguish them from real close ...




... And from a distance - for example, an aerial photo - could not and Specialist), cruised on the railways of the country, ready to strike back from the place where they were caught while Ch nuclear Armageddon can begin turning the key here is this:




More precisely, the simultaneous rotation of the two keys - with two adjacent panels. One operator can still go to the roof, but not two at once:




Suddenly the peace wagon refrigerator clings to neighboring cars openers ...



... Rasshoperivalsya on poles and roofs of vyprastyval special damn ...



... Designed to push and the ground wire, if any. After that, the roof of the car to swing in the direction of ...



... And from the depths of his irresistibly rose ribbed barrel container, concealing a blunt instrument of retribution:





Blunt - because rocket 15ZH61 "Good" (RT-23 Molodets), although it was designed specifically for BZHRK, but in firing position in the refrigerator still does not fit, so the fairing make the folding and conical took at the beginning of the flight (simply inflated):



Missile is ejected from the container special charge, as a mortar in the air it was deflected to the side (so as not to burn the starting complex) using powder accelerator, and only then cut one boosters. Bdysch:



All these operations by receiving the command from the General Staff to the missile launch was given three minutes.



Determine where at the moment is "death train", located on duty and, therefore, cover it with a preemptive strike, it was difficult - BZHRK allows you to quickly change the disposition of the starting position up to 1000 kilometers per day.



Strictly speaking, out of the two compounds at a certain time in the country cruised one - the other is under maintenance. Four BZHRK based under our Bershetyu as part of V / H number 54090 Perm-76 (now - Star CATF).





Within the framework of the START-2 in 2002, the division was disbanded, and BZHRK decommissioned and disposed of under the supervision of the Americans - even those launched in the container nigger to the felt and saw that no missiles inside:

It is not necessary to put the loss BZHRK as a diplomatic defeat - they were replaced by PGRK and complexes themselves except the obsolete (and "Well done" in general produced in Ukraine), so also in life has some drawbacks. However, now there is talk of reincarnation missile trains, but with modern missiles. But anyway, a former rocketeer today - an employee of the museum 52 minutes Tarnopolsky, Berlin Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky 2nd degree and the Red Star Division in Star
The museum is housed in the former command bunker.







In addition BZHRK under Bershetyu located silo-based installation





and before them - BSP with the IDB 8K64:





And even earlier, in doraketnuyu era - the Red Army training center





Through a sleeve refueled rocket fuel:



And what is in these cylinders, the superintendent of the museum, we have not said:



 - To see, impacted the habit of secrecy. I learned later - everything was prosaic! - But you do not say, order is an order.

Training manual:



and Red Button:



... Which actually stops the run - and start in the same way as in BZHRK - turning the key. Or, communication equipment:



They say that with the help of yonder light brown cabinet can completely block all radio communications within the Territory ... yes there is a lot of interest, a lot. Actually, I just wanted to tell you about BZHRK, but got carried away.

Himself Star today - a classic town with the regime past few quarters in the forest, clean, parallel and perpendicular
