Russia is leading in the development of hypersonic weapons. Moscow’s superiority worries Washington, Chinese experts say
The success of Russian designers in the development of supersonic missiles has made a serious impression on the international community.
The Russian Federation has developed unique systems whose projectiles cannot be intercepted by missile defence systems. Such missiles may soon be mass-produced, PolitRossiya wrote, citing military observers from the Chinese information portal Sohu.
“The hypersonic missile is capable of reaching speeds of more than five Mach, which is equivalent to 6,000 km/h. “, – the authors specified.
It is believed that modern missile defences cannot intercept targets that fast. The West is confident that mass production of the Zircon missiles will begin soon. The weapon poses a serious threat to US Navy aircraft carriers. The possibility of a large number of such missiles has made the United States nervous.Saakashvili’s party ends seven-month boycott of Georgian parliament
