The dramatic panoramic video was shot from just 50metres away as the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was shot from a mobile launcher.

Capable of travelling at speeds of up to 16,400 miles per hour and to a distance of 6,800 miles, the Topol-M missile puts all of Europe and the East Coast of the United States in range.

Released by the TV network of the Russian Armed Forces, the dramatic clip showed as the huge missile was detonated – exploding into the sky leaving a massive, scarlet red mushroom cloud behind it.

Debris rocketed out from the base of the mobile launcher, showering the cameras with dust and earth.

The video also featured some special effects, with CGI added to show off the nuke’s specifications and highlight the launch platform.

According to Rossiyskaya Gazeta the footage was reportedly taken at night in October at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome.

The Topol-M (RT-2PM2), which is 22.7m long and has a diameter of 1.9m, has a reported maximum range of 6,835 miles.

The missile can carry four to six warheads along with decoys, according to chief designer Yury Solomonov.
