Description: The Topol-M1, Western designation SS-27A, is a road-mobile version of single-warhead Topol-M Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) mounted on a Transporter Erector and Launcher (TEL) all-terrain vehicle. The Topol-M1 is intended as a replacement for the Soviet era SS-25 road-mobile ICBM with the Russian Strategic Forces expected to deploy 50 such missiles by 2015. The Russians claim that the new road-mobile missile is more survivable than its predecessor, SS-25, because it uses a new camouflage scheme that is harder to detect even from space.

On December 24, 2004, Russian press reported that the road-mobile Topol-M1 variant was being tested by Russian strategic forces successfully. The new version was originally scheduled for deployment in 2005. Finally, the new missile system was deployed within the Russian Strategic Forces beginning in late 2006. Up to three nuclear warheads could be assigned to each road-mobile Topol-M1 missile to lengthen the odds of penetrating missile defenses (ABM), which are a major concern for Russian military.

According to 2008 reports, the Russian Strategic Forces Command was planning to equip all existing Topol-M ICBMs with multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles (MIRVs) in the next two or three years, by 2011. In addition to its evasive maneuvers capability to avoid a kill by missile defense, Topol-M carries countermeasure systems and decoys and are shielded against radiation, electromagnetic pulses, nuclear blasts, and have been designed to survive a hit from any form of laser technology.
