According to the ministry the results of both impacts were “in line with expectations”.
Photographs released by the ministry show two Geo missile transporter erector launcher systems each equipped with a sole Skuz-1 missile.
Balistic experts believe that the energy released by a Skuz-1 on impact is enough to obliterate installations covering 32 studs² making the missile the most powerful currently possessed by the Imperial Army. The missile is believed to carry a 1.32g warhead and with a range of between 20 and 25 stud blocks can reach both Bricksburg and the City of Legopolis.
Political analysts have suggested that the tests are designed to send a clear message to neighbouring countries that the Imperial Army has the means to send devastation their way. Whether the will exists remains to be seen.
It is believed that work on a larger and more powerful missile codenamed Sultan is presently underway.
