Check Out The Russian R-36 Missile Known As Satan 2 And Regarded As The World's Largest Missile

Russia will undoubtedly come to mind when discussing the most developed nations in the world. Russians are known for having a very strong military sense on land, in the air, or on the water, and they are also thought to possess some of the most lethal military missiles.

I'll be showcasing the R-36, a Russian intercontinental ballistic missile that can travel anywhere on earth in a matter of minutes, in this article.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union developed a family of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and space launch vehicles (Tsyklon) known as the R-36. The initial R-36 was given the designation SS-9 Scarp and launched under the GRAU index 8K67. It was the first Soviet MRV (multiple re-entry vehicles) missile and could carry three warheads.

According to Militarybudget, it was designed in 1962 and manufactured by Yuzhny Machine-Building Plant in Russia.

It is powered by two or three liquid-fueled rocket stages and has a mass of 209,600 kg, a length of 106 ft, and a diameter of 10ft.

According to Britannica, The re-entry vehicle may come from either direction, forcing the enemy to construct much more expensive anti-missile systems, and the range is only constrained by the specifications of the orbit that it has been placed into.
