Can carry up to 12 Nuclear warheads and can bypass any missile defence any nation including American currently has. The payload can destroy an area the size of Texas.

Thoughts?... Comrade

Idiot money that could have been spent making people's life better.

It'll spark more aggressive wasteful weapons development globally.

They've also already got a 'deterrent'.

If they aren't careful they'll utterly bankrupt themselves trying to beat America, for the second time.

The ruling class gives zero shits. It wouldn't hurt them a bit.

A bit like ours tbh.

I was thinking would a major war with millions of deaths even be possible as anymore without governments being over thrown?

Problem is arms sales are a key Russian export and they can no longer afford to keep up with the Americans. They've already got a problem with their next-gen fighter, which basically means they can't produce it unless India bankrolls it, and their new Arma tank, which on paper is a generation ahead of anything, is also strapped for cash. So yes, the ruling class has a big problem, and Russia (which, lest we forget, has a smaller GDP than Italy) is spending itself into the ground, which makes spending on something like this nuke absolutely baffling, but, the Russians also genuinely believe that NATO at their borders and American ABM platforms are an existential threat, which leads to this kind of irrational thinking. Of course the real threat isn't the west (who couldn't hold Russia even if they wanted to) its China.

I sort of agree, but it doesn't really matter, Russia's uninvadeable already, has been for a long long time.

If it did go all tits up then they'd just walk with all their cash. Horrid problem to have, right? First-world ruling-elite-type problems :)

Yes, possible.

But not going to happen because of MAD.

This is just a bit of dick swinging, new car on the driveway kind of thing.

Yup, MAD is a beautiful yet scary thing... basically makes nuking someone impossible.

No it fucking doesn't. It just ensures there's really severe consequences for people who may not have agreed with whatever deranged mad bastard human finally decides that it won't actually be that bad to start using nuclear weapons.

And considering we're a people of utterly mad bastards it's entirely likely to happen sooner or later.

Putin and cronies couldn't give a shit about the official Russian economy. Putin is already worth more than Bill Gates and Warren Buffet combined. He just needs to hang onto power to enjoy it.

The official economy only gets its taste of money after the bosses have taken their cut. As Gary Kasparov notes, you can learn more about how the Russian state works by reading Mario Puzo than by studying Economics or Politics.

No, hell of a deterrent though you have to admit.. who would dare attack russia knowing they have that?
Why would anyone attack Russia? It is a complete shithole. It'd cause a world war and millions of lost lives

The days of throwing large amounts of people at large amounts of people is long gone. The current global war is economical.

I wouldn't worry too much what the EU thinks, a moribund, toothless organisation.

God you don't have a clue.

NATO have already put hundreds of thousands of soldiers on the Russian border.

Why would they get upset about the EU discussing the formation of army?

Maybe you should research EU - Russian relations.
