The warhead of a Topol intercontinental ballistic missile successfully hit a target on the Balkhash training range in Kazakhstan
The warhead of a Topol intercontinental ballistic missile, which was launched from the Kapustin Yar training range of the Russian Defense Ministry at 8:10 p.m. Moscow time on Tuesday, successfully hit a target on the Balkhash training range in Kazakhstan. “The intercontinental ballistic missile was fired from a ground-based launcher under a research and development program,” a ministry source told Itar-Tass. “The target was precisely hit. The test launch confirmed the high flight and technical characteristic of the missile.” The Space Forces were closely watching the launch and flight of the missile. The new generation of Topol missiles based in silos and mobile launchers will make up the core of the Strategic Rocket Forces after the year 2015 and will remain on duty at least until the year 2040, the source said. The advanced Topol missile has no foreign analogs, experts said. It has three cruise engines and can develop hypersonic speed. The high thrust-to-weight ratio allows the warhead to maneuver on the trajectory and pass through a dense air defense system.
