(Worthy News) - Russia is preparing to conduct at least five tests next year of its new ballistic missile that has been called the largest missile in history, the Vedomosti newspaper reported Wednesday.

“The missile system will be put into service in 2021 if it meets the required conditions,” an unnamed source close to Russia’s Defense Ministry told Vedomosti. [ Source: Moscow Times (Read More...) ]
