For anyone with railgun / laser dreams may I remind you that after spending a lot of money on these the aircraft based laser project was recently cancelled - not feasible.

Railguns are on ships and have been installed for a while - they are not to be used against ICBMs

I work and and have great Russian friends, they believe that Nuclear weapons could be the end of the world. Both American and Russian politicians stop playing with peoples lives. Putin and Obama: Buy a war software game and play at home on your computers. Please we had enough, it is the future of our kids you are playing with.

These day missle becoming obsolete, these day railgun and laser already install for use defense, technology moving fast in 21 century, laser gun can install up in orbit inside satellite aim to any threaten missle and shot down, designing laser weapon take about 40 years learn how to amilify light to become laser beam hot and accuracy, so Russia is behind with these weapon, even railgun can develop within 4000 to 5000 miles speed mach 3 can shoot down any missle range. Russian aviation no modernize digital radar how Russia going to be offense or defense so propaganda doesn't work.

You're joking right? Try CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and BBC. It's not that subtle. Even you should be able to discern the bias assuming you're awake.

Rugged mobile launchers that Russia ran through the thick Siberian forests were toughest to track

We both always knew where our rail, silo, air bases, etc nuclear weapons were and probably still do

11:03 Ask yourself how many satellites do you need to track all trains in Russia...

Anonymous user 24.04.2013 23:11

11:03 The train is cheaper than a satellite, so you're talking about waste of US money...
