    MOSCOW (BNS): Russia will continue to deploy SS-18 Satan heavy intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) as part of the country's nuclear arsenal until at least 2026, the commander of Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) said Friday.

    According to a news report by RIA Novosti, the service life of the missile system equipped with SS-18 Satan missiles has been extended.

    "The missile is routinely tested and currently there are no serious technical restrictions in the system to continue extending its service life," said Lt. Gen. Sergei Karakayev, commander of SMF.

    Satan, which can carry 10 independently targeted nuclear charges, was designed at the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau in Dnepropetrovsk, in the south of central Ukraine.

    The missile has a maximum range of 11,000 km with a launch mass of over 210 tonnes and a payload of 8.8 tonnes.

    The reason why the Russians wont give this tech to India is MTCR (missile techolonogy control regime) and the Russians are a signatory to it .

    The aim of the MTCR is to restrict the proliferation of missiles, complete rocket systems, unmanned air vehicles, and related technology for those systems capable of carrying a 500 kilogram payload at least 300 kilometres, as well as systems intended for the delivery of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
    it is the same reason the range of BRAHMOS has been capped at 290kms.

    This means that INDIA can increase the range of BRAHMOS if it wants to or can develop indigenious technology and design systems from the model of BRAHMOS and design new missiles of higher and greater distance..........

    india can indeed increase the range of brahmos, infect its said that exact range of brahmos is more than 300 kms. its specified as 290 kms because of the MTCR.
