Russian missile defense killer missile testing
US and Russian missile name with there range
worldofdefencebybunty based on ICBM.In this post you can get the information about long range ballistic missile.
ICBM has capability to cross a continent and attack the enemy. I think generally 5000+ km range ballistic missile comes under this range. Other long range ballistic missile also categories in Short Range Ballistic Missile (SRBM), Medium Range Ballistic Missile (MRBM) and Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM).
SRBM has cover less than 1000km,MRBM cover 1000-3000km,IRBM covers 3000-5000km.Germany was the first country ,developed missile technology. They used liquid fuel . Wernher Magnus Maximilian was the father of missile technology, who design V2 rocket to attack London and other European city. As the V2 rocket was came last phase of world war second, if this came in the starting phase than there was great possibilities that axis power was the winner. Allied forces had no answer how to stop v2 rocket. After the end of the war US brought Maximilian to US to boost their missile and aerospace program and USSR brought all the German equipment and unused V2 system to Moscow and through reverse engineering develop their own ICBM.
Here one interesting thing, which I want to discuss that development of a missile program directly depend on the development of space program. Let me clear this, if a country has the capability or rocket that able to place a satellite in the space than definitely those countries capable to develop ICBM.The rocket, which used in space program can be easily used for missile program after some changes. Example US, Russia, China, India,France and Israel all have developed space program and capability to place satellite in orbit with their own rocket, on the same time only these countries posses ICBM.
North Korea also have the capacity because north Korean rocket place satellite in space .The first successful actual ICBM test done on 21 august 1957 and this come in operation from Feb. 9 ,1959.USSR had able to sent first man made satellite in space on 4 October 1957 due to the success of his ICBM R7.
MIRV (Maneuverable reentry vehicle) have the capacity to beat the missile defense system because it can attack many target on a same time .SSBM (Submarine Launching Ballistic Missile) are dangerous than normal ICBM.SSBM gives second strike capacity to any country.
One more thing that Russian new ICBM, which able to defeat US missile defense cover. The new ICBM has used better and most advance fuel technology which gives high speed compare to any missile defense cover.USA or any country have not able to beat this technology, that means if the Russia use this missile in their own missile defense cover than ,that will be most trustable defense cover. This development shows again that Russian technology ten years advance than any US, European or any other countries. There is very little information about this missile.

Russia The Russian Navy currently has R-29R SLBMs and R-29RMU Sineva/R-29RMU2 SLBMs with MIRV warheads
United Kingdom's Royal Navy has armed with 16 Trident II SLBMs with MIRV warheads
France The French Navy has M45s SLBMs with TN75 MIRV nuclear warheads. The M45 SLBMs are scheduled to be upgraded to M51.1 and M51.2 (expected to enter service in 2015).
China's People's Liberation Army Navy has JL-2 SLBMs.
India: In 2011 India show that it has k series SLBM K5, which also known as sagarika already in use with range of 1000km and other upgraded version is k6 with range of 3000km, is in development stage.
Cruise Missile is well known for high accuracy and supersonic speed with stealth capacity as it flying low which is not easy to detect by radar. Father of cruise missile was V2 rocket of Germany.Cruise Missile can be categories in Hypersonic, super sonic and subsonic.
Hypersonic missile are those ,which speed is 5 time more than sound.
Brahmos2:It is interesting to know that only one missile brahmos2 is able to get more than this speed and only develop by India and Russia jointly.Brahmos2 is hypersonic cruise missile with the speed of mach 7 with range of 290 km.It is expected to come in service from 2017.No other country (other than Indian shaurya missile with mach 7.5) have such high speed with stealth capacity cruise missile.
Shaurya: This is semi cruise missile with mach7.5 speed and range of 1900km.This missile develop by Indian DRDO.
Supersonic missile are those ,which speed more than sound and range 500 km range can be vary with operating system.
Brahmos1: This is the fastest supersonic cruise missile develop by India and Russia
BrahMos India/Russia India / Russia - fastest supersonic cruise missile

Now the question arise what is the motto to write worldofdefencebybunty blog ?In the current world people only get information from television that only US have all technique in the field of arms but there is many other countries have the better technique than US. Generally common man not going to buy weapon but at least they can get the idea about the development in defense industry and defense world.
