Russia’s RS-28 Sarmat inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM), nicknamed “Satan-2” in the west, will complete the testing phase by the end of 2020, Dmitry Rogozin, Head of Roscosmos, said Saturday.
"Firing tests are already underway. The bulk of firing tests will be completed by the end of the year. We expect the closing stage of tests at the end of next year," TASS reported quoting Rogozin as saying.
The RS-28 Sarmat is an advanced silo-based system with a heavy liquid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile. It has been in the process of its development since the 2000s to replace the R-36M2 Voyevoda ICBM. It weighs about 200 tonnes and has a throw weight of around 10 tonnes.
