Russia tests intercontinental missile

Russia successfully tests intercontinental missile: report

Dec 25, 2007

Russia successfully test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile with multiple warheads Tuesday, repeating a test first carried out in May, a report said.

A mobile unit launched the missile at 4:10 pm (1310 GMT) from the Plessetsk cosmodrome in northwest Russia, said a statement from the military, cited by Interfax news agency.

The RS 24, a new intercontinental missile, flew 7,000 kilometres (about 4,400 miles) from west to east before hitting its target on the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia's far east, said the statement.

The RS 24 can carry up to three nuclear warheads, Interfax reported. It uses technology from the Topol-M, known by NATO as the SS 27.

The RS 24 and the Topol-M are designed to replace the RS 18 missile (the SS 19 Stilleto under NATO classification) and the Soviet-era RS 20 (known by NATO as the SS 18 Satan).

Last week the Russian navy announced the successful test-firing of the new Sineva ballistic missile from a submarine in the Barents Sea
