Video shows Russian ICBM warheads hit targets on test range

Dec 27 2013 - 4 Comments

Whereas the are plenty of videos showing Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) being launched, few of them depict warheads hitting their targets.

That’s why this video is particularly interesting.

It shows Russian ICBM warheads hit their targets on Kura Test range, in northern Kamchatka Krai in the Russian Far East.

Obviously, if real, the sight of warheads released by the MIRV  (Multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle) coming your way might be the last thing you ever see.

    Old video has been around forever.

    Terminal velocity looks slower than I would have expected. It seems these warheads would be vulnerable to an anti-missile system. Of course, it depends on the viewing distance.

      I was thinking the same thing. It also seems weird that the reentry vehicles appeared to split up fairly close to the ground.
