5 Topol Missile Has Been Launched

Topol Missile Has Been Launched

A ballistic missile "Topol" was launched from the Kapustin Yar launch site - the oldest Russian test site of Soviet ballistic missiles. This launch site was established as two special trains loaded with seized Nazi rocket equipment arrived from Germany in 1947. At that time engineers and soldiers lived in tents as no civil construction was going on, probably in favor of the faster completion of the launch site facilities. More German Nazi FAU-2 missiles arrived there later. Some of them were studied and
disassembled, but eleven German rockets were actually launched out of Kapustin Yar, Russia. For a while this was the only Russian ballistic missile testing and launching facility. As you can see, it is still being used today. Topol, capable of intercontinental travel, is said to be capable of hitting targets up to 6800 miles away. At this time, it was pointed at a test site in Kazakhstan, and as the TV anchor reported in the video below, it hit the target, as was expected.
