The Russian Defense Ministry plans to spend $15 million to prolong the life cycle of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) Topol-M, Voyevoda and UR-100N.

ICBM missiles are primarily used for the nuclear warhead delivery and have a minimum range of 5500km. Modern designs support Multiple Independently targetable Reentry Vehicles (MIRVs), allowing a single missile to carry several warheads, each of which can strike a different target.

The contract will be carried out by three approximately equal instalments in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Work is expected to be completed by November 10, 2020, TASS reported Wednesday.
