In the late 1950s, the global confrontation between the two superpowers, the United States and the Soviet Union, intensified. One of the consequences of the great ideological divide was the beginning of a full-fledged Cold War, in which the Soviet Union and the United States demonstrated, by all means, possible that they could use deadly nuclear weapons as a last resort at any time. At this time, intermediate-range ballistic missiles were already well-perfected weapons, and their key characteristic was the minimum time of approach to enemy territory. One such missile was the American PGM-17 Thor, adopted in 1959. It had a maximum range of almost 3,000 km and was equipped with thermonuclear warheads.
