Topol-M missile carriers curb Moscow traffic

Drivers in Moscow may be used to heavy traffic, but none quite as large as three ballistic missiles which rumbled through one of the capital's highways.
­The warheads were en route to a military base to rehearse for the 2011 Moscow Victory Day Parade in May. Topol-M missiles are Russia's most advanced intercontinental weapons. They can travel up to ten thousand kilometers in the air, but in this case they trundled to their final destination by road after a 400 kilometer journey.
