Sarmat to Enter Duty Replacing Satan Missiles March 13, 2018

Russia is to begin disposal of ageing Voyevoda (NATO reporting name SS-18 Satan) intercontinental ballistic missiles and replace them with Sarmat missiles, Deputy Defense Minister Yuriy Borisov said on 12 March.

"There can be no doubts we will have the new missile Sarmat by the time Voyevoda’s service life is over. It is expected that in contrast to its predecessors this missile will be armed with hypersonic warheads, which will make it far harder for defence systems to intercept it," Borisov said.
