Russia to Deploy Rail-Mounted Nuclear Missiles in Response to U.S.

"A Defense Ministry report has been submitted to the president and the order has been given to develop a preliminary design of a rail-mounted missile system," Lt. Gen. Sergei Karakaev told RIA Novosti, adding that work will begin on the project early next year.

The benefits of a rail-mounted program include the ability to camouflage the missiles amidst commercial rail traffic, unlike more conventional silo-based nuclear missiles which can more easily be located and targeted.


Meanwhile Obama is cutting our strategic weapon systems.
