The heavy intercontinental ballistic missile Sarmat is in the final testing phase. The hypersonic system Kinzhal and laser system Peresvet have entered combat duty, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday at a meeting with senior officers and prosecutors on the occasion of their promotion.

Putin recalled the “large-scale systematic work that has been conducted in recent years to comprehensively develop the army and provide advanced military hardware for the armed forces.”

“The missile system Avangard with a hypersonic glide vehicle will considerably enhance the ICBM potential,” Putin said.

Also, he said that “the final tests of the missile Sarmat are proceeding successfully and the system Kinzhal and laser system Peresvet have entered combat duty.”

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
