Sarmat is developed by GRTs im. Makeyeva, athough a land-based ICBM. A number of other major Russian organizations are involved, such as NPO Mashinostroyeniya of Chelomey fame, OAO Avangard, NPO Energomash, etc.
Two interesting (and semi-speculative) aspects of the Sarmat design have a kind of historical resonance:
-- use of a hypersonic maneuvering reentry vehicle (Yu-71) perhaps evolved from the Al'batros (15P170) project that was abandoned in the 1990s after a couple of tests from Kapustin Yar.
-- possible capability to use a FOBS-type trajectory....
Not officially confirmed obviously.

Looking up Sarmat, (RS-28, SS-X-30), I'm a bit puzzled. It's described as a large, liquid fuel ICBM meant to replace the RS-36/SS-18. OTOH, it's being developed by the Makeyev design bureau, famed for SLBMs. So what is it?
