Hypersonic Weapon

London - The UK's leading media reports that the country is developing a new hypersonic missile. In fact, the missile is claimed to be made to threaten Russia. Unmitigated, the missile will also have a speed of around Mach 4.

Quoted from the Eurasian Times, the missile was made by the British company Rolls Royce. As is known, missiles that can go faster than Mach 5 are hypersonic missiles.

The Mach 5 missile has an incredible speed of 3,836 mph, more than six times the average speed of a commercial airplane. Ready to threaten Russia, the report noted that the missile could travel from Britain to Moscow in less than 30 minutes.

Besides Russia, China is also claimed to be a threat to Britain. In fact, the country has stepped up its partnership with the US and Australia in terms of hypersonic and anti-hypersonic weaponry.

Quoted from, it came after Russia said it had deployed a hypersonic "Kinzhal" missile in Ukraine.

Please note that Kinzhal is a weapon that can fly at 10 times the speed of sound. With that speed, Kinzhal cannot be tracked or intercepted by current defense systems.

The Kinzhal is claimed to have a range of over 2,000 km, a speed of Mach 10, and the ability to perform evasive maneuvers at every stage of its flight. It can carry conventional and nuclear warheads and can be launched from the Tu-22M3 bomber or MiG-31K interceptor. As per reports, the Kinzhal can carry a nuclear payload of 480 kg. This is 33 times the result of the Fat Man bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima.

Quoted from, Kinzhal is a nuclear-capable air-launched ballistic missile, this missile has entered service several times since 2017. The first operational unit armed with Kinzhal hypersonic missile was formed in the Southern Military District of Russia in December 2017.
