Decoding the Expertise of Topol-M (RT-2PM2) Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.

The development of the Topol’-M began in the late 1980s as an upgraded version of the SS-25, though it was redesigned in 1992 as the first mіѕѕіɩe designed and built by the Russian Federation (as opposed to a Soviet design). The first teѕt launch occurred in December 1994 with the first testing of the TEL vehicle version nearly six years later.
