Russia’s Top Secret Hypersonic Missile Can ‘Break Through Any Modern air Defence System,’ Report Claims.


By Amaechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Russia is developing a top secret hypersonic missile designed to ‘break through any modern air defence system,’ according to a report. 

Tests will start next year on the weapon codenamed Ostrota, or Sharpness, the pro-Kremlin Izvestia reported overnight.

The news comes a day after President Vladimir Putin threatened to ‘knock the teeth out of’ foreign enemies. 

The latest missile will be deployed with supersonic Tu-22M3 bombers and Su-34 fighter bombers ‘to break through any modern air defence systems,’ the pro-Kremlin Izvestia reported.

The new small-sized hypersonic missiles are seen as modernising Russia’s non-nuclear defences.

Experts say they will ensure Russia’s ‘leading position in this field of high-tech type of weapons’ and offer ‘irresistible blows’ to highly-protected targets.

‘A ramjet engine was developed specially for the new super-high-speed rocket,’ reported Izvestia.
