Russia plans to deploy its newly-tested ultra-advanced intercontinental missile

Russia plans to deploy its newly-tested ultra-advanced intercontinental missile – nicknamed Satan II by Western military experts – by autumn.

Two months after Vladimir Putin put his country’s nuclear forces on ‘special alert’, he said this week’s successful launch would ‘give thought to those who are trying to threaten Russia’.

Satan II, formally named Sarmat, is no average nuke and the Russian president has previously boasted of its unseen-before abilities.

It is said to be the biggest ballistic missile in history, capable of striking a target 11,200 miles away and was tested earlier this week.
