Russian President, Vladmir Putin has warned that a new “Satan II” hypersonic missile would be ready for deployment soon.
Putin who vowed to provide his Russian troops with whatever they need to win the war in Ukraine, gave little away in terms of strategy as his invasion of the neighbouring country continues.
The hypersonic Sarmat missile, dubbed Satan II, is likely to be added to the Kremlin’s artillery in the new year.
It is thought each Satan II warhead can carry up to 10 nuclear warheads at five times the speed of sound, with a range of 12,000 miles.
During a televised end-of-year meeting with Moscow’s military chiefs, Putin insisted that money would be no barrier to providing troops with the latest weapons.
He also criticized NATO as he claimed that western leaders were prolonging the conflict by providing military aid to Ukraine.
