Da defence-blog.com del 19 ottobre 2014

The 100-ton Sarmat ICBM with an operational range of no less than 5,500 kilometers is to replace the military’s current Satans between 2018 and 2020.

MOSCOW, December 25 (Sputnik) – Russia will deploy its new silo-based heavy ballistic Sarmat missiles in the Orenburg Region and Krasnoyarsk Territory, Strategic Missile Forces Commander Col.Gen. Sergei Karakayev said Thursday.

“This heavy rocket will be deployed in Uzhur [in the Krasnoyarsk Territory] and the village of Dombarovsky [in the Oregnburg Region],” Karakayev said.
The 100-ton Sarmat ICBM with an operational range of no less than 5,500 kilometers (over 3,400 miles) is to replace the military’s current SS-18 Satan ICBMs between 2018 and 2020.

The new ICBM’s operational and physical characteristics are classified, and its components are currently being tested. Only Russian enterprises are involved in the production of the missiles.

In December 2013, the SMF chief said that the Sarmat is expected to feature advanced countermeasures, such as a complex command and control systems and a high degree of maneuverability, enabling it to penetrate missile defense systems.

The SS-18 Satan missiles introduced in 1975 were the first Soviet-made multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle missiles. The silo-housed and highly accurate missiles are believed to pose a serious threat to US land-based strategic missile systems.
