The RS-26 Rubezh РС-26 Рубеж (also known or within the programs Avangard Авангард) SS-29? , is a Russian solid-fueled, MIRV-equipped (or MARV maneuverable re-entry vehicles to bypass Anti Ballistic Missiles or Hypersonic Prompt Global Strike-type weapons), thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missile[1] with reported hypersonic warheads[2] in advanced stages of development as of early 2015, based on the previous RS-24 Yars. After an initial failure in 2011, it was first test-launched successfully from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome on May 26, 2012,[3][4] hitting its target at the Kura Range 6,000 km away minutes later. Further successful tests were performed from Kapustin Yar to Sary Shagan on October 24, 2012,[5][6] and June 6, 2013.[7] According to the commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakayev, the RS-26 Rubezh is expected to become operational in 2016.[8]
