    here's an interesting link about that vessel which caught fire recently:

    an automatic translation should work, if some chunk didn't make sense, post it here and I'd take a look

    for example https://www.murmansk.kp.ru/online/news/3527449/

    I've read some of them held the rank of 1st Rank Captain (кап. 1-го ранга) meaning highly ranked, a Commodore more or less, don't nitpick now!

    eh. I'd say it has a particular role: to kill the missile defense sites in the US (or elsewhere). For whatever reason, the Russians have always felt very threatened by the very limited systems of limited utility the US has put in. There are like 100 interceptors in Alaska and two or three would be needed to guarantee a missile being bagged. In a nuclear war with the US, that's a trivial number of missiles taken down. The only thing it prevents is the doctrine of "escalating to deescalate." One I, personally, find dubious at best. YMMV.

    Under the ABM treaty the US and Russia were allowed two ABM sites but only around one location. The Russians chose Moscow. The US Grand forks ND. The Russians kept theirs the US decommissioned theirs less than 6 months after activation.
    100 missiles each. As for the rest of your population well them is the breaks.
    The Russians never liked ABM. Throughout the Cold War they were lacking in numbers of weapons until late war. If the threat of nuclear strikes were rendered obsolete against their counterparts then they argued (along with a large number of westerners) the threat of war increases out of desperation.
    Personally the idea that we maintain a standoff for peace sounds like abject insanity.
