    Comment bmpd. Thus, by the end of 2016, armed with Russian Strategic Missile Forces must be presumed, 96 launchers for the missile complex RS-24 "yars" (presumably, 78 silo and 18 mobile).

    Plus the 60 silo and 18 mobile Topol-M. Getting close to 200 modern ICBM's.

    Four new regiments of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, armed with Yars intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) systems, were put on combat duty in 2016, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Thursday. "Four new regiments, armed with mobile Yars missile systems, were put on combat readiness," Shoigu said.

    "Four new regiments, armed with mobile Yars missile systems, were put on combat readiness," Shoigu said.

    The RS-24 Yars also known as RT-24 Yars, NATO reporting name: SS-29) is a Russian MIRV-equipped, thermonuclear weapon intercontinental ballistic missile first tested on May 29, 2007, after a secret military R&D project, to replace the older R-36 and UR-100N that have been in use for nearly 50 years. RS-24 is a missile that is heavier than the current Topol-M, and which some reports say can carry up to 10 independently targetable warheads.

    The assumption that it has the same solid fuel as the Topol M is not backed up by anything. It
    has been a long time since the Topol M was introduced. Chemical engineering moves on. You
    can see this evolution by comparing Soviet and relatively recent solid rocket fuel characteristics.
    For the same weight the newer Russian variants are twice as energetic.

    Russia is not going to be giving out the fuel specifications for general consumption. It is a high
    level military secret and Wikipedia level analysis is worth squat.

    According to the START declaration RS-24 has that same throw weight, missile weight and range as the Topol M. This is MIRV version Topol-M. So propably RS-24 use very similar solid fuel.
