Russia’s Satan 2 Missle

typing4_001

Russia has finally revealed it’s RS-28 Sarmat missile—better known as the Satan 2 nuclear missile—The new weapon can deploy warheads of 40 megatons, or about 2,000 times as powerful as the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagaski in 1945. Satan 2 is also capable of evading radar defenses and could travel far enough to strike the US East and West Coast.

US and Russia both signed treaties in 2010 restricting the number of intercontinental ballistic missiles the countries would keep in reserve, but despite the truce, Russia said it must maintain a strong nuclear deterrent because of the US military involvement in Europe. The Satan 2 is expected into service in late 2018, and Russian officials say it will fully replace the old Satan missiles by 2020.
