Russian Strategic Missile Forces deploy ‘Yars’ ICMB launchers

Russian Strategic Missile Forces deployed ‘Yars’ ICMB launchers this morning, as part of a massive drill involving over 3,000 soldiers demonstrating their combat skills in the Sverdlovsk Region.

The Russian Defense Ministry released a video showing the convoy of ‘Yars’ launchers moving to their deployment areas while being escorted by support units down the road.

The exercise involved mock attacks of “an enemy Special Forces unit” as well as simulated chemical and radiological attacks on the ICMB launchers.
