On October 31, the Russian Defense Minisry released a video showing the loading of the RS-24 Yars intercontinental ballistic missile into a silo on the launching site.
The RS-24 Yars is capable of carrying up to six independently targetable warheads with a payload of between 150 and 500 kilotons apiece. It began to be introduced into Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces in the early 2010s. The missile is to serve as the backbone of the ground-based component of the country’s nuclear deterrent for decades to come.
