“Ten “Sarmatian” will destroy all of the American population”, — concluded the expert.
Lenkov adds that “80 percent of the population of the United States lives mostly on the West and East coast.” In his opinion, “in a global conflict with the use of nuclear weapons an exchange of blows with the use of ICBMs ends sooner or later”, therefore the Russian underwater drones “Poseidon” can say the “last word” in the global war.
“Eventually the continental United States will not remain places not affected by the use of nuclear weapons. Destroyed and infected all and hundreds of thousands of square kilometers of the continental territory and coastal water area. No one will survive,” — says the expert.
According to official statements, an Intercontinental ballistic missile “Sarmat”, capable of carrying a payload of ten tons, can reach enemy territory on a ballistic trajectory passing through the South pole, and to move under the radar.
Currently, the rocket passed the throwing test. Full-fledged flight testing of weapons should begin in 2019. Until 2025, the Russian military should get more than 40 units of the “Sarmatians”. Missiles will replace the produced in the USSR complexes of R-36M2 “Voivod”.
