Russia plans to launch intercontinental ballistic missile over the next three years, including modern Sarmat missiles, Russian defense ministry sources said.
According to the documents, the Ministry of Defense plans to launch the “Sarmat” missiles, 3 operations to launch rockets “Yars” and 4 operations to launch missiles “Topol” during the period 2019-2021.
The documents concerned the Russian Ministry of Defense’s declaration of a closed tender for the purchase of insurance services during its activity in the said period.
The heavy Sarmat missile is the latest Russian missile, and is scheduled to replace the strategic Voivoda missiles. It is planned to start arming Russian strategic missile forces units with this missile starting in 2021.
The head of Russia’s Cosmos space agency, Dmitry Rogozin, has already announced that the missile is capable of penetrating all missile defense systems.
