Russia has launched a project to develop a new-generation strategic missile system named Kedr.

The project is currently in the research and development phase, a source in the rocket and space industry was quoted as saying by TASS today.

The Russian military is currently armed with Topol, Topol-M and Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles. Nuclear strategic submarines of projects 955 and 955A are armed with Bulava strategic missiles. The forces will also gradually adopt the Avangard hypersonic missiles.

In December 2020, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko disclosed that the Sarmat heavy missile was about to enter flight trials.
