Russia to deploy new railway-based missile

A decommissioned Russian train-mounted RT-23 intercontinental strategic missile is taken to a railway museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. The Russian military said Wednesday it is developing a new intercontinental ballistic missile mounted on a railway car to replace a Soviet-era design that was scrapped in 2005.
