Russia has developed a highly accurate hypersonic aircraft missile system, which has no analogues in the world – as announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is already in service in the area of the Crimea.
“All tests have been successfully completed. Moreover, since December 1 last year the complex has been put on duty at the airfields of the Southern Military District, “Putin said.
According to him, the unique flight performance of the high-speed carrier aircraft allows missile to be delivered to the target in a matter of minutes.
“The missile flies at hypersonic speed, exceeding the speed of sound by a factor of 10, also maneuvering on all sections of the flight trajectory. This allows it to securely overcome all existing and prospective anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense systems, delivering nuclear and conventional warheads at a range of more than 2,000 kilometers. We called this system “Dagger”(Kinzhal in Russian).”
