Moscow [Russia], May 22 (ANI/Sputnik): The new Russian Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) will be in service for 50 years, according to Deputy Commander of Russia's Strategic Missile Forces Sergei Poroskun.

"This is a promising missile system that will be on combat duty for the next 50 years," Poroskun said on Sunday, adding that the long time of service is due to the missile's characteristics and its high reliability.

Col. Gen. Sergei Karakaev, Commander of Russia's Strategic Missile Forces, told the Zvezda TV channel that, in the coming decades, it will be hardly possible to create means of intercepting Sarmat. (ANI/Sputnik)
