BREAKING: Russia successfully test-fires new ICMB

The launch took place at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in north west Russia.

Russia has successfully launched a  RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry,

“The main purpose of the launch is to confirm the reliability of rockets of the same class. The warheads successfully reached their target – the Kura testing range in Kamchatka. All aims of the test were achieved”.

The new RS-24 Yars  is a nuclear capable missile with one of the longest rages of any kind in its class.

RT reports,

“The RS-24 Yars, which is equipped with three to six warheads, is capable of hitting different targets up to 12,000km away. It was first tested a decade ago, and has been in use by Russia’s strategic forces for the past seven years.

The solid-fuel rocket is an upgraded version of the Topol-M missile, and can be launched both from the ground and from a vehicle”.

Excellent…

Now these ICBMs should be produced en masse by Russia and China jointly….

To ensure that they can overwhelm any US defenses…

These are not new, there are ~100 already deployed, each with multiple warheads (4+).
Maybe it was a regular test, perhaps some small design tweak…
But considering the timing and the hysteria over Korea’s baby make-shift weapons and the current insane Russophobia in the US, it looks more like a reminder to some people just what a REAL nuclear superpower looks like.
One of these can destroy New York, and it would not miss or malfunction or get shot down by imaginary superweapons. As louis robert says – this test is a call for a little respect.

Time to give some to Venezuela and Cuba. Nothing but nuclear weaponry staves off the Anglo-Zionist barbarians.

The Empire must learn to respect Russia and be polite with the Russians.

Indeed! The empire of evil (U$ & its allies) should take note.

This is outrageous.
Immediate and crippling sanctions must be imposed upon Russia by the UNSC.
Only the Exceptional People are allowed to test fire ICBMs.

NATO should fall on its own sword…

It has outlived its usefulness…

@ Voltare re: “It has outlived its usefulness…” Hasn’t it what! It’s purpose for existing evaporated; and since then it has turned into the leading terrorist organisation on the planet. It’s Destroyed six countries with the pretext of ‘bringing democracy and fighting for freedom’ and caused only terror, pain and suffering on a scale not scene since the end of the Cold War. All NATO signatories should be catalogued, registered as Aggressor Nations, and the planet should hold them ALL to account at a time suited to cause ‘maximum reciprocal suffering’ as has been wracked by NATO against sovereign nations.’… Read more »

NATO will have another joint exercise called ‘World of Warcraft 17’. Only if its not raining or too cold of course. They do have Risk Assessments and LGBT integration to consider as well. The US military is assessing its intelligence.

Don’t forget the Europeans get to go home on weekends. And the Dutch and Portuguese boys get a 20min smoking marijuana break every 3 hours. That’s official of course, the other nationalities join in but only ‘on the sly’.

The pathetic thing, Trauma2000, is that it so easily could be! 😉

I think it was a British TV comedy that pointed out that if the USSR had ever wanted to invade Europe – they could easily do it on a Sunday !

Thank you kindly for reminding me Simon. There is also the 8 hour day to consider as well .
In addition I would expect a Battalion of ‘Wellness’ coaches to be involved in planning to avoid any unnecessary stress. Plus it will be important for environmental concerns to have a ready supply of mobile toilets.

But yes of course they do, and therapy dogs….but as to ‘safe spaces’ from Russian artillery …. well, not so much.

They certainly do. There are sound insulated shipping containers where they can play Call of Duty whilst they eat bagels in a safe and quiet ‘field’ environment. It is there that Method Statements and Risk Assessments are also considered.

It is unfortunate that Russia has tested this rocket ‘in this context.’ But I can totally appreciate the ‘why’ aspect of it. Russia instigated the Non-Proliferation Treaty and basically over the last quarter of a century Russia desire to reduce the prospect of Armageddon has been thrown back in its face. The West has used Russia’s desire to ‘disarm’ as an opportunity ‘get the jump’ on the R.F. especially with the U.K. and the U.$. saying they are entitled to ‘hit first without warning’ under the guise of ‘preemptive defence.’ (What a two faced low prick of act that is.… Read more »

The USA, Russia and China can test ICBMs with no consequences, but when N Korea or Iran do the same they are vilified and sanctioned. Double standards?

New ICBM ? and has been in use by Russia’s strategic forces for the past seven years.
