MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. A Yars (NATO reporting name: SS-27 Mod. 2) intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was launched from Russia's Plesetsk cosmodrome to test the reliability of a batch of missiles in the type, Russian Strategic Missile Force spokesman Col. Igor Yegorov told journalists on Wednesday.
"A joint crew of the Strategic Missile Force and Aerospace Forces performed a test launch of an RS-24 silo-based multiple-warhead ICBM from Plesetsk State Test Cosmodrome at 14.30 Moscow time on October 28," he said.
According to Yegorov, the launch was designed to prove the reliability of a series of missiles of the type, made by a missile plant in Votkinsk. "The re-entry vehicles have arrived at the designated area in the Kura Missile Range in the Kamchatka Peninsula. The launch mission has been accomplished in full," the officer emphasized.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the service entry of the RS-24 multiple-warhead ICBM has boosted the ICBM fleet’s missile defense penetration capability. In the future, the RS-24 will be the backbone of the mobile ICBM force "capable - as part of the nation’s strategic missile triad - of upholding the defense of Russia and its allies." The ICBM large unit stationed in Kozelsk has ICBMs of the type in its inventory.
