Moscow:  Russia has tested modification of the Yars intercontinental ballistic missile complex from a military site in Russia’s north. The system might become the backbone of the announced reincarnation of the “nuclear train” program as this missile can be fire from train or any other moving object.

The three-stage Yars missile is Russia’s newest mobile intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) complex. The system was first tested in 2007. Though most of its characteristics are classified, open information suggests that it can deliver at least four thermonuclear warheads weighing 300 kilotons each to a target located 11,000 kilometers away.
