In the Orenburg region, work continues on the re-equipment of the Yasnensky formation of strategic missile forces with the Avangard silo-based missile system. The video shows the transportation and loading of the UR-100N UTTKh intercontinental ballistic missile with the Avangard hypersonic warhead. The Avangard complex began to enter service with the Russian army in 2019. The complex is invulnerable to current and future missile defense systems. The combat unit of the Avangard complex accelerates to a speed of Mach 28, which is 9.5 kilometers per second. At speeds up to 33,000 km / h, and this is the fastest speed of human aircraft at the moment, the warhead can maneuver, which gives it the opportunity to evade missile defense systems. Promising laser air defenses will also not be able to hit the warhead, it is lined with composite materials that can withstand temperatures of several thousand degrees. Even without a warhead, only due to kinetic energy, the impact of the Avangard block is capable of causing an explosion equivalent to 18 tons of TNT. In the future, the UR-100N UTTKh launch vehicle is planned to be replaced by the RS-28 Sarmat missile.
