Kinzhal missile fascinating facts: Russia's 'invincible' hypersonic warhead test successful

13 March 2018

The country's Ministry of Defense released what it says is a video showing the missile being dropped from a plane followed by a fiery tail.

"I told them: act according to the plan", Putin said, according to a Reuters report.

Vladimir Putin ordered a passenger plane carrying 110 passengers be shot down in 2014 over what later transpired to be a false alarm, the Russian president has said.

The Kinzhal missile was launched from a MiG-31 aircraft that took off from an airfield in south-western Russian Federation, the defence ministry said.

Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3 Getting FREE Remasters on Steam
The team has already finished the PC versions of Tomb Raider 1 and 2, and is now working on the remaster of Tomb Raider 3. Developer RealtechVR has taken care in the recent years of porting the old Tomb Raider games to mobile.

Recall, March 1, in his address to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Putin showed a video with a new nuclear missile, which flew in the direction of the United States. It has a range of 6,200 miles, a top speed of over 56 knots and can descend to depths of 3,280 feet. It is equipped with high-precision aeroballistic missiles supporting strikes at a range over 2,000 km without entering the enemy's air defense zone.

The missile has been deployed in the Southern Military District since December 1, he added.

The missile was sacked from the aircraft that took off from southwestern Russian Federation, the ministry said and it released a video of two pilots preparing to take off and then showing the missile launching from the jet, Agence France-Presse reported.

The system has no counterparts across the globe owing to high flight performance characteristic of the MiG-31 fighter jet and the hypersonic missile with a small radar signature and high maneuverability. Tests of this nature also help the ground crews and all other military personnel involved to get familiar with the new missiles. The flight then continued its way toward Turkey.

Responding to the accusation, the American Jewish Committee (AJC) said that Putin's words were "eerily reminiscent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion", demanding that Putin should clarify his comments "at the earliest opportunity".

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis noted that some of the comments were little more than election rhetoric, saying that he saw no change to the Russian military capability and that they won't change the military balance.
