RUSSIA is poised to test an “unstoppable” 15,000mph nuclear missile it boasts can beat any defense and wipe out Texas.
The RS-28 Sarmat doomsday rocket is now primed to replace the much-feared R-36 – once dubbed the “Satan” nuke by Nato.
The Kremlin brags it has a range of around 6,200 miles, can carry 16 warheads and is able to dodge any missile defense system.
Its huge payload is capable of destroying an area the size of the Lone Star State according to Zvezda, the Russian defence ministry’s TV channel.
The introduction of the long-heralded weapon has been pushed back multiple times amid delays in testing, reports The Times.
But Alexei Krivoruchko – Russia’s deputy defence minister – revealed long-distance launches are now imminent.
He said: “I will note that ejection tests of the Sarmat missile are completed with positive results.
“In the near future we will begin carrying out flight tests of this rocket complex.” Via – The US Sun
