The RS-24 Yars is a solid fuel-based thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missile equipped with at least four multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles. It was first tested on May 29, 2007 and introduced into service in July 2010 shortly after completing final tests.
Russia's Ministry of Defense said that RS-24 Yars and Topol-M ballistic missiles would be the mainstays of the ground-based component of Russia's nuclear triad and would account for no less than 80 percent of the Strategic Missile Forces' arsenal by 2016.
