Russia's plans in the Syrian-Turkish-Iraqi scramble may not be clear; but their long-term strategy is:

"Russia unveils super-heavy thermonuclear-armed RS-28 Sarmat in show of nuclear might
Cambodian Times Wednesday 26th October, 2016...

"Russia's newest super heavy missile is liquid propelled and can carry up to 16 warheads which can erase a landmass as big as Texas or France. It also plans to replace all Soviet era RS-36M ICBMs by 2022.

"Russian media reports suggest that the missile's first stage engine PDU-99 was tested in August, while a hypersonic warhead was also tested in April.

"Another reason to worry about Russia's new toy is that it is built with stealth technology, which means existing radars will not be able to detect it. With the new missile, Russia will now be able to attack major European cities as well as America's east and west coasts as it is boosted by a range of 10,000 km (6213 miles)."
