What is the top speed of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile?
In Top Speeds
Basicaly from what i understand about ICBM's is that in a First strike situation ,it would take 30 minuets for the missles to travel from American Silos in the Midwest to Russian silos in the Urals, so calculate the distance and devide it by the time involved to travel the distance and you'll come up with the speed.BTW the same formulation works the same for a Soviet first strike.They said in the Cold war in the 1980's that the response for a pre-emptive strike would leave a only a few minuets difference in the launchung of our ICBM's before a Soviet pre-emptive strike detonated.Cheak out MAD [mutual assured distruction.]and no first use policy as well as ""escalation"".

An anti-ballistic missile is a based missile system made to shoot down ballistic missiles. Usually ABM consists of a missile system guided by heat (more primitive), or by laser guided systems. When these missiles egnite, they send a cloud of cluster munitions in front of the target projectile in ord…er to shread the warhead to peices. ( Full Answer )
A ballistic missile is a term that defines a missile's flight path. There are two types of flight paths as far as missiles are concerned: approach angle control and ballistic. \n. \nA ballistic flight path describes a missile that is launched to a high altitude and adjusts itself to "fall" onto the… target. That is how ballistic missiles are capable of such long attack distances. They fly high into the air and, depending how far the target is, either drop on top of it or simply glide to it.\n. \nApproach angle control describes a missile that reaches it's target under it's own power. Meaning, it's fuel is pushing the missile all the way until detonation. This differs from a ballistic flight path because, generally speaking, a ballistic missiles booster fuel is used up completely by the time it reaches it's apex of it's flight.\n. \nHope that answers your question..

Germany developed the V-2 ballistic missile. Its purpose was to undermine the morale and confidence of the public, by raining unpredictable destruction from the sky, threatening, burning, and setting fire to centers of civilian population and their residents, in England during World War II.
An anti-tank missile is accelerating from the moment the rocket motor is ignited. That means it is going faster and faster at each moment until it strikes its target or runs out of fuel. Most missile systems possess this characteristic, that is, they don't have a cited "top speed" because of the var…iability of the speed reached based on the distance to target. In the case of just one missile system, the Javelin (and not the surface-to-air one), the missile has a 2,500 metre range, and can get easily achieve mach numbers at longer ranges within its designed reach.

As a ballistic missile is one that is only powered on the upward portion of its flight and relies on a sub-orbital arc to then reach its target, it logically follows that a non-ballistic missile is one that is powered throughout its flight: An example of a non-ballistic missile would be the cruise m…issile which travels horizontally, hugging the terrain, until reaching its target. Both types can be armed with a variety of weapons. This is why, when talking about guns, you hear the term ballistic, as the bullet is only powered for a short time (while traveling through the barrel of the gun) and continues un-powered to its target. A bullet is a ballistic "missile" (of sorts). -gm . A non ballistic missile is an area where missiles are fired at the enemy. If it is a non ballistic missle, it means that it can harm no one. - jg ( Full Answer )

There are several differences. A ballistic missile is rocket powered, takes off straight up, and the warhead falls to its target. A cruise missile is jet powered with wings, like an airplane without a pilot, and it flies following the earth until it reaches its target, whereupon the warhead is deton…ated. . Ballistic missiles hit their target using a rocket-assisted ballistic parabola and is a form of indirect fire. This means that the warhead is boosted on the upward journey, and uses the momentum from the launch to reach the target. Missiles don't have to be rocket-assisted, but it greatly increases their range. A cruise missile heads directly towards its target using aerofoils like an aircraft to follow a pre-programmed route to the target, the downfall is that the range is significantly smaller.

Can nuclear weapon explode if nuclear tipped missile is intercepted in air by the anti ballistic missile?
Maybe. If ABM was nuclear itself, it will probably cause fratricide in the warhead causing it to dud. If ABM is conventional it might detonate conventional explosives in warhead. Whether this produces yield or not depends on how safe the warhead was designed against one point detonation nuclear y…ield. ( Full Answer )
Can a nuclear weapon explode if a nuclear tipped missile is intercepted in the air by an anti ballistic missile?
Under normal circumstances no. Nukes need a smaller pre-explosion that starts the nuclear reaction, which would not happen if it were intercepted. Its possible that it could be armed so it goes off if intercepted. It should be noted that if intercepted there is still fissionable martial from the mis…sile so if it lands on a populated area it could still be as lethal as if it went off normally. The missile will not explode by being intercepted - Anti-ballistic and Anti-Missile Interceptors target the fuel at the midsection, which is most likely not going to detonate the Warhead's High-Explosive detonator cap, and might not explode at all (fuel-wise). HOWEVER, the missile will turn into a gravity bomb, and if it lands on the detonator cap or with significant force, it will detonate. This is why technologies such as the Boeing YAL-1 Airborne Laser (ABL) are designed to drop the enemy missile over enemy territory. It is important to note that gun-activated nuclear weapons which shoot one core of fission material at another, will not detonate in this circumstance unless the detonator cap activates the gun.

no, a force is not something an object has, like mass, but is part of an interaction between one object and another.
Lots and lots. ICBMs and IRBMs are both types, as well as a wide range of anti-ship missiles, land attack cruise missiles, and other more eccentric varieties.
Ballistic Missiles can have conventional or nuclear warheads. Iraq's Scud missiles during the Gulf War is a good example of a cheap conventional BM. Ballistic Missiles are launched from a land or sea based launcher into a sub-orbital trajectory towards its intended target. Many nuclear BM's are MIR…V'ed - Multiple Independent Re-Entry Vehicles, or multiple warheads. As the warhead descends from its apex, the MIRV's are separated and head for their independent targets. This can be done with conventional weapons as well. A lot of development into ABM weapons has had a lot of success - Boeing recently tested its Airborne Laser system, which uses a tracking, targeting and destruction laser to kill BM's in its boost phase where it's most vulnerable, though it can conceivably nail warheads as well (Google it and you can watch the video). It uses radar tracking from land, sea and orbital sources to track targets, and is mounted on a 747. The Air Force also has successfully tested an ABM interception missile. ( Full Answer )
SAMs (Surface to Air Missiles) which gained notoriety during the Vietnam War (shooting down B-52 bombers/and fighter bombers) are for air defense and are part of the air defense system; as were deployed by North Vietnam during the war. ICBMs (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles=Nuclear Warheads/At…omic Weapons) were to supplement or replace manned bombers which were offensive weapons (aircraft=bombers) to strike enemy cities and other targets (missile sites, sea ports, air fields, repair facilities, ammuntion depots, factories, etc.).

This really depends on a number of factors, such as the yield of the weapon, the detonation altitude, and the terrain.
No - ABM weapons are either high-energy weapons (particle beams or lasers), or high velocity intercept missiles that use radar tracking from several sources to lock on and intercept a ballistic missile in-flight, before it can separate its warheads.
Amerca, rusia and china all have missiles with range exceeding 15000 kms thah is to cover whole globe. range more than tis is not required
Pure aggression/threat. There is far more risk to the human race from atomic weapons/ballistic missiles than potential benefit.
Agni 3 has a range of 3500-5500kms with a payload of 2000kg.It can carry both nuclear and conventional warheads.

Yes, although not in the same sense as, say, an air-to-air missile. They're programmed prior to launch. . Technically, a ballistic missile is, by definition, unguided, as it follows a trajectory dictated by pure physics (hence, the name "ballistic"). However, the vast majority of modern balli…stic missiles are equipped with a warhead which does have a guidance package. So, the ballistic missile is launched, and follows a predictable flightpath. At some point, the warhead deploys, and then, the warhead can steer itself onto target. In some cases, (such as nuclear ICBMs), the warhead is actual a subassembly (called a "bus") which contains multiple actual warheads, and the bus itself is guided. In other cases, the warhead is a single package with guidance and steering integrated into it. The key here is that the missile itself is unguided, and follows a standard path, while the warhead package may or may not contain guidance. ( Full Answer )
ICBM's are surface-surface missiles and typically have a greater range than submarine launched missiles. The first developed Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM) was the Navy's UGM-27 Polaris Missile, developed by Lockheed beginning in 1957, tested in 1960, and deployed on FBM submarines begi…nning in 1961 on the USS George Washington (SSBN-598). The Polaris served well up through the 70's, being used by both the U.S. Navy and the British Royal Navy. It began to be replaced by the much more versatile UGM-73 Poseidon missile beginning in 1972. The Poseidon was itself eventually replaced by the UGM-96 Trident I missile beginning in 1979, and the UGM-133 Trident II (Trident D5) in 1990, which is still in use today. The Trident missiles have true intercontinental range; the Trident I had a range of 4600 nautical miles (5293.585 miles), and the Trident D5 has a range of 7,000nm (8055.456 miles). The top range of the Polaris was only 2000nm (2301.558 miles) by comparison. ( Full Answer )
No. So far the missiles they have are duds. They go up and then fizz out. I think they have a ways to go before they could reach the US.
To reach the USA, North Korea would need to have an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) with a very high payload capacity. Notes indicate that the North Koreans have been working on ICBM development for at least 15 years, but so far their tests have apparently been unsuccessful. They may… still be a few years away, but North Korea with ICBM capabilities should be considered a possibility in the future. While North Korea has also apparently tested a low-yield nuclear bomb, it is unclear if they have built a "warhead" that can be delivered via ICBM. The country may also be playing shell game, trying to make it appear as if their capabilities are more extensive and advanced than they actually are. If the political climate doesn't change, however, it wouldn't be surprising for them to have full nuclear ICBM capabilities by 2015 or 2020. ( Full Answer )
The term comes from the "B" and "M" letters in the acronym, "FBM", which stands for Fleet Ballistic Missile (Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarine). The combined "BM" was translated into a Navy nickname, Boomer. It's similar to a BMW automobile being called a Beemer. The fact that ballistic missiles g…o "boom" when they explode also played a role in the slang term. Otherwise, they could have been called "beemers" also. ( Full Answer )

The Polaris SLBM program started in 1956; the first successful launch from the USS George Washington (SSBN-598) was on July 20, 1960. Later in 1961 the Polaris A-2 SLBM entered active service in the Navy's submarine fleet.
Do Ballistic Missile Submarines Sail with a preset target package or are targets set as the order to Launch is confirmed?
They have preset packages, but each boat's package is different and changes with each crew's patrol cycle to keep the system random. No one on board knows the targets, and any launch authorization must be verified and agreed upon by the CO and XO of the boat.
Turkey has agreed to host an early warning radar as part of NATO's missile defense system aimed at countering ballistic missile threats from neighboring Iran is the US ware of an upcoming war?
The USA also installed radar and missiles in Turkey during the 1960s to guard against Soviet Russian attacks which never happened. It's a ploy some countries use to intimidate others.
A speeding missile, or any moving object, has momentum. Force was used to cause it to move in the first place. If this object strikes another object, it will then exert a force on the object that it strikes.
You have to fly over the wall. you can do this by flying at an altitude of about 400ft or more.
The first true ballistic missles were developed in Germany during WWII, under the direction of rocket scientist Werner Von Braun. The first effective long range missle was the V1 "buzz bomb" that was used against targets in Britian toward the end of the war. Later, von Braun's team built the V2, a m…uch larger, more powerful rocket used against tartgets in Britian, France, and the Low Countries. However, both these weapons were inaccurate, have an accuracy of several miles from were they were aimed, so they were limited to mainly hitting large targets such as cities. ( Full Answer )
Yes, foreign ICBMs were perfectly capable of reaching the US, and US ICBMs were just as capable of reaching back.
Which lab Los Alamos or Livermore designed the warhead for the first US submarine launched ballistic missile?

The first ballistic missiles to be deployed was the German V2 rockets towards the end of WW2, in that they were fired from Germany and aimed at London and the surrounding area. Happily, although nations subsequently developed the capability of deploying ballistic missiles to travel between contine…nts with anything up to and including nuclear warheads, they have always managed to pull up short of actually doing so - and the general disarmament of 1990 onwards has reduced the threat. Of course, there are always rogue regimes (Iran and N Korea immediately spring to mind at the moment), who seek to develop such weaponry for their own ends, but none have so far actually deployed against their enemy.
