MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS /. The Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) will replace the Voyevoda ICBM in divisions in the Krasnoyarsk Territory in East Siberia and in the Orenburg Region in the South Urals, Russian Strategic Missile Force Commander Sergey Karakayev said on Friday.
In particular, Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missiles will arrive for the missile division based in Uzhur in the Krasnoyarsk Territory in East Siberia and the Dombarovsky position area in the Orenburg Region in the South Urals, Karakayev added.
"The development of the Sarmat silo-based missile system with a heavy missile is nearing completion. It will replace the Voyevoda missile system in the Uzhur missile division and the Dombarovsky position area," the commander said.
According to him, Russia’s Strategic Missile Force continues receiving Yars missile systems with ground-mobile and silo-based missiles.
The Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile is being developed to replace the R-36M2 Voyevoda ICBM, also known as the RS-20V missile.
Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said earlier that the new missile’s warhead would have a weight of ten tons.
A defense source told TASS earlier that the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile is expected to be made operational in late 2018.
