First IRBM intercept on March 4, 1961

The Soviet Union accomplished the first "nonnuclear" intercept of a ballistic missile (IRBM) warhead by a missile at the Saryshagan missile defense test range in Kazakhstan on 4 March 1961. Grigorii V. Kisun'ko (Kisunko) led the team.

Pages 407 and 408 from M. Gruntman's Blazing the Trail show the arrangements of this ballistic missile interceptt.

A recently published "Intercept 1961. The Birth of Soviet Missile Defense," AIAA, 2015 details this technical achievement, describes the program development (including preceding emergence of air defense systems SA-1 and SA-2), and provides the historic and technological background and context.
