Putin has made much of developing such "invincible" systems as a counter to costly USA missile defense programs. An article announcing the latest launch in the defense ministry publication, Red Star, said the rocket had been tested in its pre-launch and first stage of flight phases.

President Putin unveiled a suite of other weapons during his speech, including a supersonic weapon that can not be tracked by anti-missile systems.

The chief innovation of the Sarmat is its ability to carry a large number of guided warheads, meaning that it will be able to rain down individual warheads flying themselves to targets. Because of the range, the missile could travel across the South Pole, and by extension bypass every extent missile interceptor.

"Missile defenses will be useless against it", he added.
