New York Post: Russia’s terrifying ‘Satan’ nuke could create hell on Earth..do we really want to obliterate the earth over zio policies? you really care about Syria and Ukraine that much? but yet you won't even join the military..you sound either like a tv truther or some moron suicide junky who would love to take all of us with you..you make me sick... This Russian nuke is the devil in disguise. The country has unveiled the first images of its largest-ever nuclear missile, an intercontinental ballistic missile called the RS-28 Sarmat, dubbed Satan 2 by NATO. A single 100-ton behemoth can obliterate a country the size of France, and can travel vast distances, easily reaching the Big Apple, experts said. Russian strongman Vladimir Putin wants to replace his arsenal of SS-18s with Satan 2 missiles, which Kremlin engineers will have ready by 2018, the Daily Star reported. They are planned to be operational by 2020. Images of the new-and-improved missiles — packed with either 10 heavy nuclear warheads or 16 smaller ones — were released by the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau in the city of Miass. Chillingly, the weapons will make the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan during World War II look like “popguns,” experts have said. A message by chief designer V. Degtar and leading designer Y. Kaverin reads: “In accordance with the Decree of the Russian Government ‘On the State Defense Order for 2010 and the planning period 2012-2013,’ the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau was instructed to start design and development work on the Sarmat.


Answer: 2
*shrugs* So it's an ICBM able to carry up to 16 MIRV warheads? It's a bit of an advance on the US's Trident missile or the French M51 missile, but it won't affect the strategic balance to any great extent. And virtually every nuclear weapon now extant makes the Hiroshima bomb look like a popgun; it is thought to only have had a 17kT yield, the sort of battlefield weapon NATO would have used to take out a few Red Army tanks in the 1970s if the balloon had gone up.
If putin wants the whole world to cease to exist including russia he will use these weapons.Otherwise it's all posturing.
