The Sarmat missile, known as an “unstoppable missile” by Russia, is expected to enter operational alert next month. According to a report, the missile’s speed is expected to be almost 25,000 km/h, with a range of 18,000 kilometers and a height of a 14-story building.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu previously stated that the defense establishment should soon finish equipping the army with the new system. Recently, Putin has insisted that only administrative procedures remain before the Sarmat missile can replace the Vayboda missile, which has been in service since the 1980s. The Vayboda missile was tested no less than 17 times during the Cold War before entering operational service.
