    A leading Russian missile designer says the country's arms procurement program should include development of a new heavy ballistic missile.

    Yury Solomonov of the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology said the final decision on arms procurement through 2020, expected in 2012-13, should be made by the expert community, not just the Defense Ministry, RIA Novosti reported Monday.

    "This matter is beyond the Defense Ministry's competence. It is a matter of state importance," he said.

    A "heavy" intercontinental ballistic missile is a class of missile with of a payload weight of between 5 and 10 tons, more than 115 feet in length and capable of delivering multiple warheads in a single missile.

    Russia's Strategic Missile Forces are still armed with Soviet-era SS-18 Satan and SS-20 Saber ICBMs with an extended service life and are expected to remain in service until 2026, RIA Novosti said.

    The SS-18 Satan carries up to 10 warheads with an operational range of up to 6,800 miles.

    I wonder what this is about, single high yield weapons went out of favor with slide rules and horn-rimmed glasses.
