America fears new weapons will restore Russia's advantage over the West


The K-77M air-to-air missile developed specifically for the Su-57 fighter will give it an advantage in aerial combat with the enemy, Military Watch magazine writes.

Its range is over 190 kilometres, giving Russian fighters an advantage over Western fighters.

“The K-77M could become the most effective long-range air-to-air missile in the world”, –  the publication’s expert stressed.

It is noted that this warhead will be key in restoring the missile advantage that Russia enjoyed in the last years of the Cold War and in preparing the Russian air force to face next-generation threats, such as the US AIM-260 missile, which is under development.
