Top 10 Longest Range ICBMs In The World (Pdf Download)
Today in this article we give the info related to ICBMs and a List of the Top 10 Longest Range ICBMs In The World with Images, you can Download This Pdf in 1 Click, (go to the end of this article) and we’ll focus on the longest-range ICBMs ranging from the m51 ICBM in France to the RS-28 Sarmat in Russia.
Intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are a major nuclear deterrent and only a few nations possess the technology to launch such long-range weaponry these deadly missiles have a minimum range of 5,500 kilometers modern ICBMs typically carry more than one nuclear warhead most modern designs support, Multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRVs). So a single missile can carry several warheads each of which will strike a different target furthermore ICBMs carry an array of decoys that allow overcoming hostile air defenses.
