Description
The RT-2UTTKh «Topol-M», NATO reporting name: SS-27 Stalin, other designations: RS-12M1, RS-12M2, RT-2PM2)is one of the most recent intercontinental ballistic missiles to be deployed by Russia, and the first to be developed after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. According to Russia the missile is designed to be immune to any current or planned U.S. missile defence system. It is capable of making evasive maneuvers to avoid a kill by terminal phase interceptors, and carries targeting countermeasures and decoys. It is shielded against radiation, EMP, nuclear explosions at distances over 500 meters, and is designed to survive a hit from any laser technology.One of the Topol-M's most notable features is its short engine burn time following take-off, intended to minimize satellite detection of launches and thereby complicate both early warning and interception by missile defense systems during boost phase. The missile also has a relatively flat ballistic trajectory, complicating defense acquisition and interception. The Topol-M was designed by the Moscow Institute for Thermotechnology (MIT) and assembled at the Votkinsk Machine Building Plant, Kolomna. Solid propellant motors are made by Soyuz NPO, Dzerzhisky, inertial guidance and control system by the Automatic Equipment and Instrument Production NPO, Moscow and the nuclear warhead by Arazmus-16 (VNIIEF) at Nizhniy Novgorod.

Technical Data
 Back to top
Container missile
The Topol-M is a cold-launched, three-stage, solid-propellant, silo-based or road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile. The missile's length is 22.7 m and the first stage has a body diameter of 1.9 m. The mass at launch is 47,200 kg, including the 1000-1200 kilogram payload. Topol-M carries a single warhead with a 550 kT yield but the design is compatible with MIRV warheads. According to chief designer Yury Solomonov, the missile can carry four to six warheads along with decoys.Its minimum range is estimated to be 2,000 km and the maximum range 10,500 km. It has three solid rocket stages with inertial, autonomous flight control utilizing an onboard GLONASS receiver.It is reputed to have the highest accuracy of any Russian ICBM with a CEP of 200m or 350m depending on the source.
Missile
The missile has a launch weight of 47,200 kg. Guidance is by an onboard digital inertial navigation system with a Glonass receiver, providing an accuracy of 350 m CEP. There is a downlink from the missile to the ground station, so that the missile's position can be transmitted to launch control. The minimum range is believed to be 2,000 km, and the maximum range 10,500 km. The missile has a life of between 15 and 20 years. It is believed that the SS-27 missile carries a single nuclear warhead with a 550 kT yield, although one Russian report suggests a yield of 1 MT, with countermeasures, and has a throw weight of 1,000 kg.
Truck
The Topol-M may be deployed either inside a reinforced missile silo, which is reported to be able to withstand a direct nuclear hit or from a launcher mounted on the MZKT-79921 16-wheeled transporter-erector-launcher. This mobile launcher is capable of moving through roadless terrain, and launching a missile from any point along its route. The designation for the silo-based Topol-M missile is believed to be RS-12M2, while the mobile version is RS-12M1.
Accessories
The Topol-M has a newly developed first stage, which is wider and heavier than that used on the RS-12M. Russian accounts have stressed the invulnerability of the new missile to anti-ballistic missile defences, and the missile has a more energetic first-stage engine and incorporates a new warhead and re-entry vehicle.
