Okay this is why we renewed trident. Russia just unveiled the Satan-2 ICBM. They’ve built a misisle that can avoid all our defences and deliver ten 30Megaton warheads. That’s enough to destroy the whole of France or Texas in one misisle. That’s 20,000 Hiroshimas in one missile. By evey international law and treaty it’s illegal for them to make this but they’re sending a pretty strong message.
The misisle will enter production in 2018 and service in 2020. It’s range is 10,000km+ which allows launch from deep inside Russia to avoid destruction during the launch phase. The misisle has a lowered RCS and travels at over 7km/s. The SM3 block II misisle will be in service by this time which has an intercept capability of 10km/s and a range of 1500km, so a mid flight interception is basically our only chance, but the hit probability is looking slim. Once the missile splits it releases 10× 3 megaton or 16 smaller warheads which have a hypersonic glide design, speeds from mach 7-12 to make terminal stage interception by THAAD almost impossible. The impacts of a single misisle would culminate as greater than 60% of the most powerful hydrogen bomb ever made, the Tsar Bomba, although spread over a wider area on the ten separate warheads.
I don’t feel the need to explain what this means for world security in the next decade, but in one misisle Russia is trying to shift global power.
