Video shows Russian ICBM warheads hit targets on test range

Whereas the are plenty of videos showing Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) being launched, few of them depict warheads hitting their targets.

That’s why this video is particularly interesting.

It shows Russian ICBM warheads hit their targets on Kura Test range, in northern Kamchatka Krai in the Russian Far East.

Obviously, if real, the sight of warheads released by the MIRV  (Multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle) coming your way might be the last thing you ever see.

I hate to be on the end of a fully armed MIRV when it slams into the ground.

This is video of a Minuteman III ICBM Glory Trip with dummy Multiple, Independently Targeted Re-entry Vehicles(MIRV's) coming back into the atmosphere and impacting at the Kwajalein Island

It looks like at 24 seconds in the Russian film that you have 2 MIRVs fall close together but in actuality that we are seeing it at an angle. It just appear that they fall close together.
