In this paper the author is concerned explicitly with how Soviet institutions, constraints, incentives, and values influence the process of Soviet weapons design. The central theme is that these processes strongly affect outcomes over the medium term future.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Alexander, Arthur J. Process of Soviet weapons design. Santa Monica, Calif.: Rand Corp., (OCoLC)   Best of all, the book describes concept designs and prototypes of weapons that were developed and tested but never placed into production or deployed.

For example, there is a design history tree that shows the timeline and relationship of Soviet tank designs from to around Both NATO and Soviet weapon designations are given/5(4). In this paper the author is concerned explicitly with how Soviet institutions, constraints, incentives, and values influence the process of Soviet weapons design.

Differences between U.S. and Soviet military capabilities do not arise from differences in resources, but from the processes and choices that determine how those resources are employed.

The report specifically discusses organizations in Soviet weapons R&D and science; the Soviet weapons acquisition process; characteristics of Soviet weapon design; science ties to the Soviet military; types of linkages between science and the military; the nature of scientific support; and the logic of controlling scientific information transfer.

Based on interviews with important Soviet scientists and managers, papers from the Soviet Central Committee, and U.S. and U.K. declassified documents, this book peels back layers of lies, to reveal how and why Soviet leaders decided to develop biological weapons, the scientific resources they dedicated to this task, and the multitude of research institutes that applied themselves Reviews:   The Soviet Union is no more, as everyone knows.

Its political system proved to be unsuccessful; it was incapable of adapting to the challenges of history. But this should not blind us to the fact that in some things the Soviet Union was very successful. One of these things was in the design of weapons. The Soviet BW program appears to have taken advantage of the declassification in the s of a large number of documents from the United States BW program.

Thus, the design of the Soviet Gshch BW bomblet was found to closely resemble. Soviet design was a world of reverse-engineered knock-offs. The most notorious case is the Vyatka scooter, an ersatz Vespa, which even borrowed the same font for its logo.

The Soviet Union began a biological weapons program in the s. During World War II, Joseph Stalin was forced to move his biological warfare (BW) operations out of the path of advancing German forces and may have used tularemia against German troops in near Stalingrad.

Bynumerous BW research facilities existed throughout the Soviet Union. Although the USSR also signed the The following is a list of Soviet military equipment of World War II which includes artillery, vehicles and vessels. World War II was the deadliest war in history which started in and ended in Following political instability built-up in Europe fromGermany, which aimed to dominate Europe, attacked Poland on 1 Septembermarking the start of World War II.

Nuclear weapon designs are physical, chemical, and engineering arrangements that cause the physics package of a nuclear weapon to detonate. There are three existing basic design types: pure fission weapons, the simplest and least technically demanding, were the first nuclear weapons built and have so far been the only type ever used in an act of war (over wartime Japan).

This book covers the process of development of Russian weapons design school in the second half of the 19th century, the activities of which created the background for the creation of 3-line Mod rifle and a cartridge for it.

We’ve compiled a diverse list of some of the best books about nuclear weapons. From well-loved classics to warnings from the past few years, we hope that this selection sheds some light on the need to prevent the spread and further use of nuclear weapons.

Not for the Faint of Heart: Lessons in Courage, Power, and Persistence, Amb. Soviet weapons reflected a different design philosophy. The West preferred complex, expensive and perhaps over-engineered armaments. Whether. This is a nuclear-themed blog, but as you probably could guess, I’m pretty equal-opportunity when it comes to being interested in weapons of mass destruction.

(Heck, I find conventional weapons pretty important, too!). I had previously read a two interesting reviews — one by Steven Aftergood, another by David Hoffman — of Milton Leitenberg and Raymond A.

Zilinskas‘ new book, The Soviet. After two months, the Soviet Union abandoned its search for K and the nuclear weapons it carried, but the United States, which had recently used Air.

Information on Moscow's knowledge of nuclear weapons effects was needed to evaluate the capability of the Soviet Union to design warheads for air-defense and anti-missile missiles and to develop hardened warheads capable of surviving US ballistic missile defenses.

Analysis of the impact on the Soviet nuclear weapons program of testing.The design process may be a conscious or subconscious effort the designers use on almost every project. Design process and methodology play a key role in the development of innovative design.

Soviet tank engineers loved the idea of super-heavy tanks and designed a few of their own. Of all the concepts, the one that saw the most use was the T heavy tank. The T was originally based on a British design that was adapted by Soviet engineers.

The hallmark of the T was its five turrets, which could fire in all directions.
