An intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) is equipped with thermonuclear weapons. It is liquid propellant, weighs 200 tons, and is said to be capable of firing twelve thermonuclear warheads with an explosive power of up to 750 kilotons. The Hiroshima atomic bomb weighed about 15 kilotons. Sarmat or Satan 2 can also deliver the new Avangard Hypersonic Glide (HGV). Avangard’s high speed, low trajectory, and mid-flight maneuverability could become immune to interception by the US Thaad’s armor system, simply by resorting to a path that passes over Earth’s South Pole, an area not covered by any device. Early warning radar or defensive missile system. With a range of more than 18,000 km, Sarmat can make a trip around the Earth and hit targets on the other side of the planet from unexpected directions within an hour. It is capable of destroying an entire country like France. Serial production of the RS-28 Sarmat was supposed to start in 2020, two years after Putin’s announcement, but the weapon was developed starting in 2011 to replace the previous R-36M missile.
