Putin has touted an ‘invincible’ nuclear weapon that really exists — here’s how it works and why it deeply worries experts
Russian president Vladimir Putin showed a video of its RS-28 or "Satan 2" intercontinental ballistic missile during a speech. Here's how it might work.
Instead of worrying about defense, the US just builds its own nuclear missiles, which Russia also can't stop.
The US has spent more than $40 billion on missile defense projects over the last 15 years, and has no real credible capability to show for it.
Russia has started delivering its S-400 surface-to-air missile system to China under the terms of a contract signed in 2014.
India’s latest missile test puts it closer to joining an exclusive club and will ‘make China think twice’
The test "reaffirms the country's indigenous missile capabilities and further strengthens our credible deterrence," India's Defense Ministry said.
"Very simple — what we're trying to do is shoot [air-to-air missiles] off F-35s in the first 300 seconds it takes for the missile to go up in the air."
A missile expert told The New York Times: "You shoot five times at this missile and they all miss? ... That's shocking because this system is supposed to work."
Turkey has completed its purchase of Russia’s advanced missile system, and relations with NATO are still tense
Turkey has wrapped up its purchase of Russia's S-400 missile-defense system and says it wants to keep working with NATO, but the West seems wary.
India is the third US ally to agree to purchase the S-400 from Russia since September.
The process that the US government has to go through to fire a nuke is an intricate process but it can happen in only a few minutes.
