Russian Federation 'launches hypersonic missile'

Mr Putin said the missile flies at 10 times the speed of the sound and can overcome air-defence systems.

Video released by the ministry showed a military jet taking off carrying a large missile before launching it mid-flight.

Russian Federation says it has successfully test-fired a "hypersonic" missile, which President Vladimir Putin earlier this month claimed flies 10 times faster than the speed of sound.

"The launch went according to plan: the hypersonic missile hit its target", the ministry stated.

The Kinzhal system, which means dagger in Russian, is intended for destruction of surface and waterborne targets, the report said.

President Vladimir Putin unveiled an array of new weapons on March 1, in one of his most bellicose speeches in years, ahead of a presidential election on March 18 that he is expected to win comfortably.

Due to the high performance of the MiG-31 aircraft and the hypersonic missile with low radar visibility and high maneuverability, Kinzhal has no known peer-rivals in any other country, according to the TASS report.

Arrieta adds some stability to the rotation and will serve as a stabilizing force in an otherwise young clubhouse. Arrieta is a great addition and gives them a very good top 3 in their rotation with him, Nola, and Eickhoff.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Facebook that work had also been done to modernise the "unique" MiG-31 supersonic jet that will carry the missile.

As part of his announcement earlier this month, Putin showed an animation depicting warheads falling on what looks like Florida.

"Russia still has the greatest nuclear potential in the world, but nobody listened to us", he said.

The US state department has since responded by saying his rhetoric was not "the behaviour of a responsible worldwide player".

Russian Federation has launched a powerful new missile.

"I get paid to make strategic assessments".

"I saw no change to the Russian military capability and each of these systems that he's talking about that are still years away, I do not see them changing the military balance", Mattis said.
