Title Intercontinental ballistic missile RT-2PM2 Topol’-M unified for silo and mobile basing modes

The missile RT-2PM2 (RT-2PM1) is referred to the fifth generation of strategic missiles and is designed for two basing modes: the first version – the missile RT-2PM2 in highly hardened silos as the part of the missile system Topol’-M, the second version – the missile RT 2PM1 carried by self-propelled launcher as the part of the road-mobile missile system Topol’-M.
