Looks like Russians got themselves a piece of Alien technology!

Nope, you have speeds on par with GMD, RIM-161D Block IIA or Arrow-3. This is just necessary to intercept ICBMs and satellites… Thus, considering how the Russian flag moves, wouldn’t be the 1st time RT would have a little embellished, a bit like showing the Tu-160 with the FOAB test, while you clearly see the FOAB sliding from the aft of a cargo aircraft.

This one is here to intercept ICBMs, preferably BEFORE they release their MIRVs, or satellites, so if your targets move at about 20,000-30,000 km/h, you’d better be very very fast too.
