Russia’s new SS-18, code named “Satan” by NATO, is capable of delivering 10 Nuclear warheads with a range of almost 10,000 miles.
Just one SS-18 Missile is up to 500 times more powerful than any of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during world war 2.
Even more terrifying is the fact that all of the current U.S Missile Shields are not capable of stopping the technology that delivers this powerful weapon.
“This applies in the fullest sense to the USA’s anti-missile defence system and to Nato’s (planned) European missile defence system,” said Artur Usenkov.
Experts estimate that Russia currently has between 60 and 90 missile silo launchers hidden across the countryside of Russia. Only a direct hit from a thermonuclear weapon is capable of destroying one of these missile silo’s.
Russia and the United States have been negotiating a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. Both countries were stating that they wanted to cut their spending for nuclear missile systems. No doubt this latest missile technology will required the U.S to answer with a greater system to stop such missile attacks, as well as a new long range Intercontinental Ballistic Missile systems.
