Russia FIRES 7673MPH hypersonic 'DAGGER' missile in shock footage”

Russian Federation says it successfully completed a test launch of the hypersonic missile President Vladimir Putin touted as an "ideal weapon" in early March.

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

On 1 March, Mr Putin described the Kinzhal missile - named for a type of dagger - as "an ideal weapon".

One suggestion for delivery is that it may be launched from the new Russian Sarmat intercontinental missile system - due to come into service this year.

Crews of the Kinzhal air system, which includes a MiG-31 interceptor and an advanced hypersonic missile, have carried out 250 flights this year, and have been trained "in full scope day and night in various weather conditions", said the ministry.

First mooted in the 1960s, hypersonic glide weapons are created to fly at ultra-high speeds and at much lower altitudes than ballistic missiles, with the idea that they would be effectively undetectable by existing anti-missiles systems.

The Kinzhal system is intended for destruction of surface and waterborne targets. It has a range of 6,200 miles, a top speed of over 56 knots and can descend to depths of 3,280 feet.

The MiG-31 departed from an airfield in the Southern Military District within the framework of a testing air alert.

Hypersonic speed, combined with flight and technical characteristics of MiG-31, is what makes the Kinzhal missile unique.

The U.S. Defense Secretary, James Mattis, said that nothing Putin showed off changed anything from the Pentagon's perspective, as he spoke to reporters as he traveled to Oman.

One of the technologies Putin touted was a robotic torpedo that could hit a USA port city, but Mattis said that makes no difference as Russian Federation already can target United States port cities with missiles.

"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.
