According to Outlet Military Russia, the combat missiles, also known as "Yars-E," can be deployed from a mobile launcher.

Local Russian news also claimed that the new missiles would solve the "expiration" issues of previous combat equipment, as well as "allow the payload to be launched on a platform unified with many modern missiles."

The Kremlin was expected to test out more new combat equipment in the coming days, which included the test of the deadly hypersonic Sarmat rocket, dubbed the "Satan-2" by Western countries.

The Sarmat rocket weighs around 208 tons and was said to be the size of a 14-story building.
