Upcoming RS-24 tests

Yuri Solomonov, the chief designer of the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology, said in a recent interview to the VPK newspaper that the next test flights of the RS-24 (MIRVed Topol-M) are scheduled for the last quarter of 2008. If the tests are successful, the first RS-24 missiles will be operationally deployed in 2009. Pavel Podvig sees Solomonov’s comments in the light that they are good case against MIRVing Topol-M.
