Top 10 ICBM Ballistic Missiles in the World 2020 – As we all know, intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) are a powerful national weapon of a great country, a symbol of its comprehensive national strength, and can directly affect a country’s international status. To date, only a few major countries in the world have developed ICBMs as a killer weapon. MilitaryEzyInfo.com
Top 10 ICBM Ballistic Missiles in the World 2020, Which is the most dangerous?
10. Chinese Dongfeng-31AG ballistic missile
The DF-31AG is a deeply improved version of the Dongfeng-31A ballistic missile, employing a host of new technologies, with a range of up to 12,000 km, and can carry five to six sub-missile warheads, twice as many as the Dongfeng-31A!
9. French M51 submarine-launched ballistic missile.
The M51 is a sixth-generation French submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) with a range of 13,000 kilometers and up to 12 warheads, which, together with the Triumph-class strategic nuclear submarines, forms the backbone of France’s strategic nuclear strike force.
8. Russian RT-2PM2 Poplar-M ballistic missile.
The Poplar-M is arguably one of Russia’s best-known strategic weapons, and it leads the way in the development of intercontinental missiles. With a range of over 10,000 km, road maneuver launch + warhead end deflection, it makes it extremely difficult to defend against!
7. Russian SS-N-30 Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile.
The Bulava, nicknamed the Round Hammer, is a new-generation submarine-launched ballistic missile developed on the basis of the Ballistic Missile Poplar-M. The Bulava has a reduced bullet weight and is the core of Russia’s second-strike submarine fleet. Based on the powerful capability of Poplar-M, the reduced bomb weight and the combination of the Borei class ballistic missile nuclear submarine become the core of Russia’s second-strike force.
6. China’s Dongfeng-41 ballistic missile
The Dongfeng-41 is China’s new generation ballistic missile, which can be launched by road-mobile launch or railway platform, with a maximum range of 14,000 kilometers, and can carry five to eight sub-missile warheads, making it a hero among ballistic missiles.
5. Russian RS-24 Yars ballistic missile.
Yars is an upgraded version of the Poplar-M, with 20 percent more throwing weight than the Poplar-M, and although it is a single warhead, it has better end-to-end maneuverability, and Russia claims it cannot be intercepted.
4. China’s Dongfeng 5B/C ballistic missile
The Dongfeng-5C ICBM, test-fired in early 2017, is the latest model of China’s Dongfeng-5 series. Compared to the road/rail maneuver + solid fuel Dongfeng-31 series and Dongfeng-41, the silo-launched + liquid-fueled Dongfeng-5C has a longer range and larger payload, making it the absolute core of China’s strategic nuclear deterrent!
3. United States LGM-30G Minuteman 3 ballistic missile
The Minuteman 3, which began service in 1970, is the only land-based intercontinental ballistic missile in service in the U.S. By virtue of U.S. excellent materials science and perverted engine technology, the Minuteman 3, which has a combat total weight of only 34 tons, can achieve a maximum range of 13,000 kilometers and a payload of nearly 1 ton, the “veteran” who has served for nearly 50 years, is still in service today. Still one of the most powerful weapons in the world!
2. United States UGM-133 Trident II D5 submarine-launched ballistic missile
Trident’s big name has been long-standing, the type of missile not only in the United States military service, even the United Kingdom also from the United States to buy this missile as its only strategic nuclear strike carrier. “Trident II” D5 and Ohio class ballistic missile nuclear submarines can be said to complement each other, a Trident can carry up to 14 nuclear warheads, an Ohio can carry 24 Trident, the U.S. military has the ability to launch Trident D5 Ohio class nuclear submarines 14 ships, so it is really too terrifying!
1. Russian R-36M ballistic missile
The R-36M’s codename may be unfamiliar to people, but its NATO codename SS-18 “Satan” is a familiar one! “Mankind’s Most Terrifying Weapon” and “The Soviet Union’s Insane Nuclear Missile” …… With a range of 16,000 kilometers, a projectile weight of 8.8 tons, and a nuclear warhead of 25 million tons equivalent. With an accuracy of 100 meters, the R-36M is the most powerful ICBM in the world, and as its nickname “Satan” symbolizes, it is a devil that can destroy the world!
