Russia introduces new hyper-sonic missile

Russia, as part of strengthening their military power, had successfully tested the hypersonic missile that travels 10 times the speed of sound.

The missile named ‘Kinzhal’ was deployed from a MiG-31 fighter jet that can hit the target more precisely. “The launch was normal; the hypersonic missile hit the preset target on the test site,” said the defence ministry.

The missile got the name Kinzhal for its double-edged dragger design. According to President Vladimir Putin, the missile is unstoppable for any defence system around the world with its tremendous speed.

‘Kinzhal’ got the capability to carry nuclear bombs to a target far away from 2000 km, and can manoeuvre according to the ground controls.

Meanwhile, in the wake of the incident, Pentagon released a statement saying “Our strategy will ensure that Russia understands that any use of nuclear weapons, however limited, is unacceptable”.
