LE IMMAGINI DEI CARRI ARMATI
LE BOMBE, I FERITI E I DANNI
LE IMMAGINI DEI BOMBARDAMENTI MISSILISTICI
LA FUGA HA INIZIO
L’ANTEFATTO. LA RUSSIA ARMATA FINO AI DENTI – QUANTO HA INZIATO IL RIARMO
MISSILE A PROPULSIONE NUCLEARE
Il 9M730 Burevestnik (in cirillico: Буревестник, nome in codice NATO: SS-X-33 Stone o SSC-X-9 Skyfall) noto anche col soprannome Petrel, è un missile da crociera sperimentale a propulsione nucleare di fabbricazione russa, prodotto dall’azienda NPO Novator ed armato con testata nucleare o convenzionale.
Per via dell’uso di un reattore nucleare miniaturizzato quale sistema di propulsione, si ritiene che il missile vanti una gittata virtualmente illimitata.
L’8 agosto 2019, in una base militare dislocata nell’oblast di Arkangelsk, si è verificato un incidente con conseguente emissione di materiale radioattivo e perdita di vite umane; si ritiene che la base fosse uno dei siti preposti allo sviluppo del sistema propulsivo miniaturizzato del Burevestnik.
CARRO T-14 ARMATA
il tank russo T-14 è capace di resistere a qualsiasi carro armato dell’Alleanza Atlantica.
Il Sukhoi Su-57 (in cirillico: Сухой Су-57, nome in codice NATO: Felon) noto anche come T-50 durante la fase di sviluppo, è un caccia multiruolo stealth di fabbricazione russa sviluppato dalla Sukhoi negli anni duemiladieci ed entrato in servizio nelle forze aerospaziali russe a partire dal 2020.
Progettato per conquistare la superiorità aerea sull’avversario nonché condurre missioni di attacco al suolo, il velivolo è in grado di operare in modalità autonoma, di coordinare l’operato dei propri gregari e di interfacciarsi attivamente con droni da combattimento al fine di potenziare lo spettro dei propri sensori; è altresì il primo velivolo di 5ª generazione realizzato in Russia.
