The Satan-2 nuclear-capable hypersonic missile is rumored to be the most powerful in the world, according to the Sun, and is said to be capable of releasing 15 additional nuclear warheads at once.

"In the near future, the first launchers of the Sarmat complex with a new heavy missile will go on combat duty,” Putin reportedly told the Russian military graduates this week.
