First test launch of Sarmat ICBM due this fall — source

The first launch of Russia’s advanced Sarmat silo-based intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) is scheduled to take place this fall, a defense industry source has told TASS.

"The first launch of Sarmat as part of flight development tests will presumably take place this fall, the second one - in late 2021," the source said.

TASS did not receive an official confirmation of this information at the time of the publication.

Krasmash plant Director General Alexander Gavrilov told TASS in June that Sarmat flight tests had been scheduled for the third quarter of 2021.
