The R-36, (Russian: Р-36) is a family of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and space launch vehicles designed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The original R-36 was produced under the Soviet industry designation 8K67 and was given the NATO reporting name SS-9 Scarp. The later version, the R-36M was produced under the GRAU designations 15A14 and 15A18 and was given the NATO reporting name SS-18 Satan. This missile was viewed by certain U.S. analysts as giving the Soviet Union first strike advantage over the U.S., particularly because of its very heavy throw weight and extremely large number of re-entry vehicles. Some versions of the R-36M were deployed with 10 warheads and up to 40 penetration aids and the missile's high throw-weight made it theoretically capable of carrying more warheads or penetration aids. Contemporary U.S. missiles, such as the Minuteman III, carried up to three warheads at most.
The R-36 (SS-9) is a two-stage rocket powered by a liquid bipropellant, with UDMH as fuel and nitrogen tetroxide as an oxidizer. It carries one of three types of re-entry vehicles (RVs) developed especially for this missile:
The Mod 1 and Mod 2 carried single nuclear warheads of 18 and 25 megatons (mt) of TNT yield respectively.
The Mod 4 carried three re-entry vehicles (MRV).
An additional version, the Mod 3, was proposed (it was to be a Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS), a missile that travels through space in a low-earth orbit), but was not adopted due to the Outer Space Treaty.
The R-36P missile was developed to carry the Mod 4 warhead, while the R-36O (the letter O) was to be for the Mod 3 FOBS. R-36 and R-36P missiles were hot launched from their silos.
The R-36M (SS-18) is similar to the R-36 in design, but has the capacity to mount a MIRV payload of 10 warheads, each with a 550--750 kt yield, or a single warhead of up to 20 mt. Throw-weight of the missile is 8,800 kg. This makes the Soviet R-36 the world's heaviest ICBM; for comparison, the heaviest US ICBM (the retired LGM-118 Peacekeeper, that carried 10 warheads of 300 kT each) had less than a half of this at 4,000 kg. The R-36M has two stages. The first is a 460,000 kgf (4.5 MN) thrust motor with four combustion chambers and nozzles. The second stage is a single-chamber 77,000 kgf (755 kN) thrust motor.

if they ever use this. earths atmosphere would die

We can still shoot it down with a laser beam that costs less then a dollar
per use. If they try to launch they would know that we would take it out
over a populated area in Russia before it even started the ocean route

I love what America did with Iraq it was quite devious. Years ago they sent
Saddam chemical weapons. Then when America claimed that Saddam had weapons
of mass destruction only to find a few weapons and a couple years later
find their cache of Chemical Weapons given to Saddam but Oh no you can't
show the media that due to the whole Made in USA thing. That and now for
some moronic reason USA has handed ISIS a quantity of Uranium 238 to do
whatever they want with. YAY dirty bomb on the way. So lets see. Fund FSA
to take down Assad, tick, FSA members splinter off into Al Qaeda and some
into ISIS, tick. WELL DONE AMERICA well done. Americans funded both sides
since 1776 no one should be surprised to see they are doing the same now.
But really on both sides a World War 3 means all us people on here on
Youtube using the internet a network which was first developed by the US
military probably the only one good thing USA did for the world besides the
light bulb. We will all die. Hopefully it cracks earth in half If I die I
want to take the globalist scum down with me. If the atmosphere fails not
even the ISS is safe. The moon base also needs supplies from earth from
time to time. Don't fuck the best thing we have. Surely globalist are not

I fucking hate this missile. I had to live with these things aimed right at
me since 1967. Unlike most of my American compatriots I had to go to the
university library to look these things up. My response was to smoke a lot
more weed and drink a lot more tequila than I should have. I don't blame
the Soviet people; they had a right to defend themselves. I find it useless
to blame one side more than the other for the Cold War. Ultimately, what
disgusts me the most, is that humans cannot reason or negotiate in good
faith because there are too many fucking psychopaths everywhere. The only
language that nations understand is the language of pain and death. In
their essence, nation states are nothing but elaborate street gangs.

These types of weapons such this nuke has been sent to mars or the dark
side off the moon to be detonated . Think about it. Why launch a weapon
that goes nowhere and what would be the point in making a more destructive,
powerful nuke if they haven't test the previous one..

If we humans use this type of weapon again, we all deserve to die. Nature

10 mísseis desses arrasam um país de 9.000.000 de km² num piscar de olhos.
Seria bom que muitos pensassem sobre isso.
Será que vale a pena deixar controladores do Poder sacrificar países em
prol de seus interesses?
Alguns povos deveriam ser mais prudentes, pois na hora do Míssil detonar
não dá para retroceder e nem ONU ou OTAN conseguirão salvar alguém.
