MR-UR-100U 15A16
Part of MR-UR-100 Family
Ukrainian intercontinental ballistic missile. Improved version of the MR-UR-100U loaded into the super-hardened 15P715U universal silo, with a modernized guidance system with better reliability and accuracy.

AKA: 15A16;15P016;MR-UR-100U;MR-UR-100UTTKh;RS-16B;Spanker;SS-17 Mod.3. Status: Retired 1983. First Launch: 1977-10-25. Last Launch: 1983-10-04. Number: 25 . Payload: 2,550 kg (5,620 lb). Gross mass: 71,100 kg (156,700 lb). Height: 21.60 m (70.80 ft). Diameter: 2.25 m (7.38 ft). Apogee: 1,000 km (600 mi).

Development of the MR-UR-100UTTKh (UTTKh = 'Improved Technical-Tactical Characteristics) was authorized on 16 August 1976. The draft project was completed in December of the same year. The variant would use the super-hardened 15P715U universal silo, and have a modernized guidance system with better reliability and accuracy. Trials were conducted from 25 October 1977 to 15 December 1979. The missile was not formally accepted for military service until 1 December 1980. Between 1982 and 1984 the missile had entirely replaced the original MR-UR-100 in all 150 silos. Withdrawal of the missile began only four years later, the missile being replaced by the Topol mobile solid propellant ICBM at Bologoye and those at Kostroma being replaced by train-launched ICBM's. With the collapse of the Soviet Union the manufacturer ended up being in now-independent Ukraine - an unacceptable situation for a strategic weapon. By 1991 only 50 silos at Bologoye remained operational, and they were retired by 1994.

Maximum range: 11,000 km (6,000 mi). Number Standard Warheads: 4. Warhead yield: 550 KT. CEP: 0.43 km (0.26 mi). Initial Operational Capability: 1982.
