As vectors of launching of such devices Msseis Balsticos Intercontinentais are used (MBI), Ballistic Missiles Launched of Submarinos (MBLS) and strategical bombers. The Forces of Missiles Strategical (0:5 B=K5 B> 9A: 0 CB@0B538G5A: > 3> H07=0G5=8O, PBCH, or RVSN), responsible for the operation of the MBI of the Russian Federacy, that are most advanced and powerful of the globe, are a separate Force of excessively, inside of the Russian military structure.

With a reach of 10.000 kilometers and carrying six Multiple Vehicles of Reentrada Independente (VMRI) with 750 unitria power of kt, such missiles can attack any situated target in the Europe, Asia, Africa and in parts of the Oceania and the American continent. Each one of its VMRI can be directed against a different target, what it allows each missile to reach six different situated targets for times the hundreds of kilometers one of the other.
