According to TASS, Russia will begin its new-generation intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Kedr, 2023-2024.


"Research work on Kedr has been financed under the current state arms procurement program, which is in effect until 2027. Technological development will begin in 2023-2024," the source told TASS.

According to the source, solid-fuel Kedr ICBMs are to replace Yars systems at the turn of 2030. Just like their predecessor, the new system will have mobile and silo-based modifications.

A source in the space industry told TASS on March 1 that Russian defence companies had launched engineering drafting work on the new-generation Kedr intercontinental ballistic missile system.
