In the future, such units will be installed on a heavy rocket RS-28 "Sarmat"- said the source
He also noted that the power of a nuclear warhead installed on a new hypersonic combat unit - “more than 2 megatons in TNT equivalent” - is quite enough for the complete destruction of “especially important targets”.
