RT-2PM Topol, the 'compensating for something' truck

9RT-2PM Topol10a very big and impressive truck. 

Fans of pre-millennial comedy films might recognized this trundling giant from the film Spies Like Us, which featured Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase on a mission to prevent a RT-2PM Topol from launching its missile at the united states. The system has also been featured in other movies, as an enduring symbol of cold-war grandiosity. 

Although the cold war is now behind us. Russia maintains a fleet of these delivery vehicles, and last successfully tested on in March of  2014, at Kapustin Yar testing ground. It will eventually be superseded by the road-mobile version of the Topol-M missile.
