Russia has recently deployed its RS-28 Sarmat Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM), which is known as the “world’s deadliest missile.”
The announcement was made by Russian space agency chief Yury Borisov, although the specific details regarding the date and location of the deployment were not disclosed.
The RS-28 Sarmat missile, also nicknamed “Satan II,” is designed to replace the Soviet-era Voevoda missiles and has the capability to carry out nuclear strikes on targets thousands of miles away in the United States or Europe.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously stated that this next-generation ICBM will make Russia’s enemies “think twice.”
The RS-28 Sarmat is capable of delivering a MIRVed warhead weighing up to 10 tonnes to any location worldwide and has a range of 18,000 kilometers.
It can carry up to 10 heavy or 15 light warheads, as well as 24 Avangard hypersonic glide vehicles that are difficult to intercept.
This new missile system has the highest tactical and technical characteristics and is capable of overcoming modern anti-missile defense systems.
