Russian RS-24 Yars ballistic missile placed in silo (vid)

An impressive video has been released by the Russian Defense Ministry, presenting the transfer of an RS-24 Yars ballistic missile, to silos in western Russia.

The RS-24 Yars has been used by the Russian armed forces for about 10 years and is one of the most powerful nuclear weapons in the Russian arsenal. This rocket has a weight of almost 50 tons and a range of 12,000 kilometers.

The RS-24 Yars can neutralize any anti-ballistic missile system, including US Aegis Ashore ABM systems stationed in military bases in Poland and Romania. This year, Russia has announced that it has at least 109 Yars in its nuclear arsenal.
