Russia’s latest super-advanced “Sarmat” intercontinental ballistic missile will receive a hypersonic warhead, weighing 200 tons, and becoming the most terrifying weapon in the hearts of Americans.
The RS-28 (Sarmat) is a Russian liquid-fueled, heavy intercontinental ballistic missile capable of carrying a large-yield nuclear warhead. Since the 2000s, it has been developed by experts from the Markiev State Missile Center (Mias) in the Chelyabinsk region. It is named after the nomadic tribes who lived in modern Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan in the 6th and 4th centuries BC.
The missile itself is a “giant heavy bomb” with a weight of 200 tons, with high speed around Mach 20.7, making it difficult to intercept by missile defense means. With a range of nearly 18,000 kilometers, it can reach the United States via Arctic and Antarctic routes. The US interception system is generally deployed in the Arctic and Alaska. Once attacked from the Antarctic, it is difficult for the US to guard against it. But the biggest surprise is its warhead, which can be loaded with hypersonic warheads.
