The testing of Satan 2 is likely to sound alarms across the West, especially across Europe. One major concern with this Sarmat missile is that it has only had one successful flight test across Russia. After April 2022, no tests have been documented.

Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin is all set to test the world’s largest ballistic missile. Putin will be testing the next ‘unstoppable superweapon’ called Satan 2.
Satan 2 – the ultimate doomsday weapon – can travel upto 15,880 miles per hour. The intercontinental nuclear missile weighs upto 280 tonnes and it’s as big as a 14-floor tower. As per Metro UK, the Russian President is planning to set up the first regiment which will be armed with this missile on “combat duty” by December 2023.
“The first Sarmat regiment, consisting of a command post and several silo launchers will go on combat duty as part of the Uzhur missile formation of the Strategic Missile Forces in December of this year,’ a defence source also told news agency TASS. Another source added that the regiment is already on “experimental combat duty”.
Russia’s advancement of Satan 2 comes amidst the reports that its “apocalyptic” Sarmat missile has not been tested properly.
Russian news agency TASS first reported the launch of the missile at South Pole. However, as per Metro, since the TASS report, mentions of the South Pole have been heavily censored.
The testing of Satan 2 is likely to sound alarms across the West, especially across Europe. One major concern with this Sarmat missile is that it has only had one successful flight test across Russia, which was recorded in April 2022.
The RS-28 or Satan 2 was unveiled by Putin in 2018 as Russia’s next generation missiles. Satan 2 will also have the ability to transport multiple warheads. The ballistic missile has also been designed to elude anti-missile defence systems with a short initial boost phase, which would leave enemy surveillance systems with a narrow window to track it down....See More
