    Very fast , Between 7.5 and 9.5 km/s depending on atmospheric entry angle and certain individual boost phase parameters,

    That's why the best idea is to destroy the missile during boost phase when it was still quite slow.

    many ABM systems  ,S-500 as example is ABM and LEO ASAT system .

    LEO = Low Earth Orbit

    ASAT = Anti-Satellite Weapon

    How many km per second does a typical ICBM travel at?

    Some time ago, someone posted a good post on the speeds of ICBMs and IRBMs. Can't find it now.
