On December 26, 2014, a test dispatch of a RS-24 Yars robust fuel intercontinental ballistic rocket with a separable warhead was directed from a ground base at the Plesetsk Space Complex.
MOSCOW, December 26 (Ooduarere) – Russian Strategic Arms Forces on Friday effectively test dispatched a Yars robust fuel intercontinental ballistic rocket from the Plesetsk Space Complex in the nation’s northwest, an authority representative for the nation’s Strategic Arms Forces said.
“On December 26, 2014, at 11:02 Moscow time [08:02 GMT]…a test launch of an RS-24 Yars solid fuel intercontinental ballistic missile with a detachable warhead was conducted from a ground base at the Plesetsk Space Complex,” Col. Igor Yegorov told journalists.
According to Col. Yegorov, the dummy warheads used during the test launch “were tasked to hit targets at the Kura Range on the Kamchatka Peninsula.”
The RS-24 Yars (SS-29), brought into administration in July 2010, is an overhauled variant of the Topol-M ballistic rocket. The ballistic rocket can convey various autonomously targetable atomic warheads, and is intended to dodge rocket resistance frameworks up to a scope of 7,500 miles.
