Don’t be alarmed or anything, but Russia has just unveiled a nuclear weapon
...that could wipe out Britain - TWICE.
The new RS-28 - that has been dubbed the not-at-all-terrifying Satan 2 - is part of a deadly new arsenal at Vladimir Putin’s disposal.
In fact, the weapon is so powerful that it could destroy Britain twice over.
It comes packed with either 10 heavy nuclear warheads, or 16 smaller ones, and experts say it will be able to avoid the West’s radar defences.
The weapon is capable of destroying an area the size of France
The weapon also has a range of around 6,200 miles - meaning it could reach Britain, as well as the East and West Coasts of the United States.
The super-nuke is able to travel at speeds of up to four and a half miles a SECOND, and is set to be rolled out by 2018 after scientists in Miass carry out their tests.
A statement alongside the first image revealed by Kremlin engineers said: “In accordance with the Decree of the Russian Government ‘On the State Defense Order for 2010 and the planning period 2012-2013’, the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau was instructed to start design and development work on the Sarmat.
“In June 2011, the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a state contract for the Sarmat’s development.
“The prospective strategic missile system is being developed in order to create an assured and effective nuclear deterrent for Russia’s strategic forces.”
Russia already has the biggest nuclear arsenal in the world so this is no biggie. Hopefully.
