Description: The RS-24 Yars is a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) being developed by Russia as the replacement for existing RS-18/SS-19 Stiletto and RS-20/SS-18 Satan. The Russian Strategic Forces Command performed the first test-launch of an RS-24 missile from a mobile launcher at Plesetsk launch site in northwestern Russia on May 29, 2007. It is said that the RS-24 is based on Topol-M and is being designed to carry from four to up to ten nuclear warheads for better missile defense penetration. The RS-24 may be a mobile missile system and would be fitted with anti-missile defense (ABM) technology. Other sources suggest that RS-24 would be the most capable ICBM produced ever worldwide.

In October 2008, the Russian Strategic Forces Command announced that the RS-24 MIRVed missile will be deployed in silos and on mobile platforms beginning in 2009 thus replacing SS-18 and SS-19 intercontinental ballistic missiles. The new ICBM missile system was expected to remain in active duty until 2050. By 2020, the Russian Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) will be equipped with around 100 Yars missiles. The Yars-S designation refers to the mobile variant of the Yars missile system.
