Default Novator 9M729: The Russian Missile that Broke INF Treaty's Back?

Quote:
The United States has revealed which Russian cruise missile Washington believes is in violation of the landmark 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty.
Speaking at the Wilson Center on November 29, National Security Council official Christopher Ford revealed that the weapon is in fact the Novator 9M729—which carries the NATO designation of SSC-8. The land-based cruise missile is thought to have a range that falls between 500km and 5,500km, and is therefore illegal under the terms of the treaty, which turns 30 year old today (December 7). Many analysts like Jeff Lewis have long suspected that the INF-busting weapon in question is the 9M729, but until Ford confirmed their suspicions, there was no official word from the United States government.
The only thing scholars and analysts had to go on was a cryptic paragraph in the U.S. State Department’s April 2017 Adherence to and Compliance with Arms Control, Nonproliferation, and Disarmament Agreements and Commitments report. There were no other details available.

The Trump administration is considering new sanctions to make sure Russia abides by the terms of a 1987 nuclear-arms treaty that limits intermediate-range missiles.
Russian companies that helped develop a new version of a banned cruise missile will bear the brunt of the sanctions being weighed by the Commerce Department, Politico reported.
The US says Russia’s newly deployed Novator 9M729 missile violates the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty.
If the Russians are breaking the treaty, the US might respond by developing a new intermediate-range cruise missile of its own, the State Department said.

Stay tuned.
