    This saves lots of money and releases resources to economy. As long as Kindzhal, Sarmat/Avangard and Poseidon are in place no hurry for Rubezh.

    There is also another factor. The Kinzahl is part one of the GZUR (hypersonic guided missile) project. They wanted a missile with a range of 1500 km and a Speed of M6. The result is much better. Part two should become a "strategic" Missile with a Speed of M12 and an undisclosed range. Let´s suppose they develop a missile with a range of 6000 km, than there would be no more need for the Rubezh. They could make an land-based starter and Keep the INF treaty intact.

    By cancelling RS-26 Russia keeps its options open

    A couple of weeks ago we got a word about the future of the RS-26 missile. According to the Russian media, the RS-26 program did not make it to the 2018-2027 State Armament Program as the priority was given to the Avangard project (which is known here as Project 4202). It may reappear again, of course, but probably not right away.

    To recap, the missile was first tested in September 2011 (unsuccessfully) and in May 2012. A March 2015 report said that the missile was fully tested and ready for deployment. Being a "short" RS-24 Yars, RS-26 was by all indications an intermediate-range missile, which generated some controversy. I have it on good authority that Russia did declare RS-26 as a prototype of a new ICBM in New START, so it would have been covered by its provisions had it been deployed. Right now, though, it will remain in a limbo - as a prototype it doesn't really have a range. If we will get to the point of a clear collapse of the INF Treaty Russia could declare RS-26 as an intermediate-range missile that is not constrained by New START (or its successor).
