Putin puts 16,000mph doomsday nuke dubbed Satan-2 ‘that can sink UK in ONE strike’ on combat duty for the first time
VLADIMIR Putin has placed the world’s most powerful Armageddon nuclear rocket dubbed Satan-2 on combat duty in a haunting new threat to the West.
The “unstoppable” intercontinental missile system could “sink the UK” and is the size of a 14-storey tower block.
Yury Borisov, head of the Russian Space Agency, issued the chilling announcement earlier today.
He told a crowd of students at an event: “The Sarmat strategic complex has been put on combat duty.”
Borisov also said today that Russia will “most likely” undock the Russian module from the International Space Station after 2030.
The Armageddon weapon is 116 feet in length and can be loaded with 15 light nuclear warheads at once.
The weapon was designed to carry out nuclear strikes in countries thousands of miles away in the US and Europe.
It has the potential to obliterate the United Kingdom some 1,600 miles away in just six minutes.
And with an operational range of up to 11,180 miles, the deadly missile is reported to have no equivalent in the West in terms of the terror it could unleash.
The 208-tonne missile was meant to go on duty in late 2022, but was mysteriously delayed.
