Moscow: Russia will soon launch the biggest even nuclear missile; powerful enough to destroy the whole of UK. The missile equipped with 100-tonne ‘Satan 2’ nuclear missile has a range of 6,213 miles.
Satan 2, has the power to deliver about a dozen nuclear warheads of 40 megatons – 2,000 times as powerful as powerful as the atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
The next generation intercontinental ballistic missile can ‘beat any defences’ and wipe out entire countries, according to Russia’s military. The weapon has been in the pipeline since 2009 and is now ready after several setbacks, with initial trials to be carried out before the end of the year, sources claim.
Launches will be held at the Plesetsk testing ground in west Russia and, if successful, the weapon could by in use by 2019 – 2020. The liquid-fueled Satan 2 missile, according to experts, is a weapon of mass destruction, equipped with technology to evade radars.
