Launch of the "Topol-M" Missile
You want something really scary for Halloween?
Then watch this launch of Russian newest three-stage intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) "Topol-M". According to many sources, these missiles change their flight trajectory, which makes them virtually unpredictable and hard to destroy. They also have similar ICBMs on board of submarines.
To read more about these ICBM and the trucks that carry them, see our articles Part 1 and Part 2.
