Dilansir dari kantor berita AFP, Kamis (21/4/2022), Sarmat - dijuluki Setan 2 oleh para analis Barat - adalah salah satu rudal generasi berikutnya yang disebut Putin 'tak terkalahkan', dan yang juga termasuk rudal hipersonik Kinzhal dan Avangard.

Bulan lalu, Rusia mengatakan telah menggunakan Kinzhal untuk pertama kalinya dalam peperangan untuk menyerang target di Ukraina, di mana pasukan Rusia telah terlibat dalam operasi militer khusus sejak 24 Februari.

Kementerian Pertahanan Rusia mengatakan dalam sebuah pernyataan bahwa uji coba rudal antarbenua itu 'berhasil' berlangsung di kosmodrom Plesetsk di Rusia utara. Rudal balistik antarbenua superberat Sarmat dirancang untuk menghindari sistem pertahanan anti-rudal dengan fase dorongan awal yang singkat, memberi sistem pengawasan musuh peluang kecil untuk dilacak.

Dengan berat lebih dari 200 ton dan mampu mengangkut banyak hulu ledak, Putin mengatakan rudal itu dapat mengenai target apa pun di Bumi dan akan membuat musuh-musuh Kremlin 'berpikir dua kali'.
