Russian President Vladimir Putin introduced the new high-tech ‘Kinzahl’ missile system at his Annual Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly in Moscow on Thursday.

Putin said the system has already been successfully tested and that “it has no analogues in the world.”

Commenting on the missile system’s specifications, the Russian leader noted that it has “unique aero-technical characteristics” which “allow it to deliver the missile to the drop point in a matter of minutes.”

“The missile flies at hypersonic speed, 10 times greater than the speed of sound, it is manoeuvring in all parts of the flight trajectory. This allows it to overcome all existing and, I think, future air-defence and missile-defence systems, delivering to the target nuclear and other warheads at a distance of more than 2,000 kilometres,” Putin stated.

Over 1,000 people attended Putin’s 14th state-of-the-nation address in the Manege Exhibition Center, including members of both houses of the Russian Parliament, members of the government, as well as other officials and prominent figures.

Not at all.
Violations of arms treaty on BOTH
US and Russian sides! And every other big players (EU, China, India and even Japan) will have to follow.
Another f*****g arm race to dilapidate trillions that would better be spent in really useful domains while it can only end in a status quo, just like older arms races…
And considering GDP/PPP, Russia is only the 6th economy, thus the smallest of all aforementioned big players…
How can anyone sane rejoice of all this s**t resuming!

They (and us) will reap the whirlwind they have sown.

Hola, AMN, maybe should you watch the full presentation : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NW_mfBPUyM Actually, none of these systems are in service, actually, these are systems that are in R&D in Russia as they are so in other countries, actually, some stuff is even nothing new e.g. nuclear-propelled missile (or even aircraft!) as both Soviets and Yanks worked on it in the 50’s/60’s and prefered iving up as it’s as bad for owner as it is for target! I’m also dubious about the hypersonic missiles shown under Mig-31 as the shape of the anti-ship hypersonic missile is already public for a while as… Read more »

I should add that elections are coming in Russia in a few days, so it’s likely that there are serious ties between this speech and the upcoming elections…
