What is the Russian Topol Missile?
The Topol is a single-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) designed for delivering nuclear warheads. The development of the weapon began back in 1977, and it has been part of the Russian arsenal since the days of the Cold War when spies sometimes came in from the cold. Topol missiles are differentiated from others by the fact that they have a far greater range and velocity. In other words, it would be the Topol missile that would carry the greatest destructive force in case of nuclear war.
