VLASIKHA, December 16. /TASS/. Russia is developing the Sarmat super heavy liquid-propelled intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on its own without cooperation with Ukraine’s defense enterprises, as there is no need in it, Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces (RSMF) Colonel General Sergey Karakayev said on Tuesday.
“As for using the potential of the Ukrainian defense sector, there is no need in it today,” he said, adding that since 1993 all missiles for RSMF have been developed only by Russian enterprises, and the country’s industry has mastered the liquid-propellant technology since the Soviet period.
“One of the main enterprises developing liquid-propelled missiles now is the Academician V.P. Makeyev State Rocket Center. Thanks to the high scientific-technical and industrial potential, it has won a tender for the state order placement that also involved other Russian enterprises, in particular, the Reutov-based VPK NPO Mashinostroyeniya rocket design bureau,” the commander told reporters on the eve of the 55th anniversary of RVSN creation.
According to Karakayev, the Makeyev State Rocket Center “has drawn together cooperation ensuring closed-cycle design, development and serial production of missiles and sea-launched missile systems. Specialists of the enterprises have carried out major preparatory work, in particular, for the study of the experience of the creation of the Voivode class missiles (NATO’s reporting name Satan).”
“So, we have no doubt that the new heavy liquid-propelled missile will be created before the end of the current decade,” Karakayev said.
