Serial Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missiles will be put on combat duty at the end of autumn, said Dmitry Rogozin, general director of Roscosmos. He said that missile tests will be carried out throughout the year.
According to Mr. Rogozin, “Sarmat” has “colossal power and high technical parameters.” “The power of Sarmat is enormous. Another thing is that we will expect that it will never be used, ”he said in an interview with Rossiya 24 (quoted by TASS).
For the first time, President Vladimir Putin spoke about the Sarmat missile in 2018 in his message to the Federal Assembly. The first successful rocket launch was made on April 20, 2022 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region. According to Dmitry Rogozin, Sarmat missiles are much more powerful than other strategic weapons, including the American Minuteman III. The first regiment armed with Sarmats is expected in the city of Uzhur in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Roskosmos intends to build 46 Sarmat combat complexes.
