Russia's nuclear arsenal. - Topol-M leaving the War Factory.
The RT-2UTTKh Topol-M is perhaps the most powerful artillery unit in the game, deployed exclusively by General Zhukov, the Tactical Ballistics General of the Russian Federation.
Produced by the Soviet Union during the Cold War, the RT-2UTTKh Topol-M, NATO reporting name SS-27 Sickle B, is an intercontinental ballistics missile launcher. In the event of World War III, these platforms would launch nuclear warheads across the Iron Curtain and into Western soil, devastating the land. When the Russian economical crisis escalated in the late 2010s, these weapons of war fell into obscurity, being locked up in deep underground vaults far out in Siberia to be used by no-one. The fate of the divisions utilizing the platforms, the Strategic Rocket Forces, were also disbanded. They remained locked up until Russia's new leader President Suvorov put the country back on track one and a half decades later. With his rebuilt army, he reinstituted the Strategic Rocket Forces, and put them under command of his most trusted general: General Zhukov. The platforms were upgraded to fit modern standards, and today stand vigilant next to the Guards Army, ready to launch their nukes should the ECA draw more nuclear weapons into the Russo-European War.
