SATAN 2: the deadliest ballistic missile in the world That Can Wipe A Whole Country

When it comes to modern warfare, many countries around the world have been able to develop many weapons of mass destruction, such as firearms, bombs, and ballistic missiles. This is what Russia did when it unveiled its latest Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) known as the RS-28 Sarmat. It was unveiled by Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2018.

 The RS-28 Sarmat aka "Satan 2" weighs 208 tons and stands 119 feet tall, about the size of a 10 story building. This missile has a payload of around 10 tons while the fuel weighs around 178 tons.

 The payload of this gigantic missile consists of Avangard Hypersonic Glide Vehicles (HGVs), heavy and light MIRV warheads and it has numerous countermeasures against anti-ballistic missiles.

 The Satan 2 missile has a very destructive impact that reaches up to 8 megatons of TNT explosive power, meaning it is over 400 times more powerful than the bomb the United States used on Hiroshima.

 This missile's countermeasures system is so powerful that it can bypass missile defense areas and is capable of following unpredictable routes. It is also able to fly a wide range above Earth, which means it can fly halfway around the world in just an hour.

 To this day, Satan 2 remains the largest weapon in Russia's nuclear arsenal.
