MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. One train of Russia's future railway-based combat missile system Barguzin will carry up to six intercontinental ballistic missiles and will be equivalent to a regiment, a defense source told TASS on Friday.
"One regiment of the recreated new-generation Barguzin system will be able to carry six Yars or Yars-M intercontinental ballistic missiles," the source said.
He added that one Barguzin division will comprise five regiments.
Barguzin, which is being developed at the Moscow-based Institute of Thermal Engineering, is expected to enter service in 2018-2019.A former Strategic Missile Force chief of staff, Viktor Yesin, has told TASS earlier that Barguzin is Russia’s response to the United States’ deployment of the anti-ballistic missile defence.
Russia withdrew railway-based inter-continental ballistic missiles from operation in 2005. At the moment research and development work is in progress on Barguzin, which is expected to remain in active service at least till 2040.
