Russia says it has successfully launched powerful new missile Russia test-fires 'ideal' hypersonic missile
Ellis Copeland | 13 March, 2018, 01:33

The officials said the test was a success and that the missile hit its intended target.

Russia's defense ministry released a footage showing a large warhead detaching from a jet and blast through the sky, leaving a fiery trail behind.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the destruction of passenger planes that have been reported to carry a bomb for the goal of assaulting the opening of the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014. The weapon, which is named after a type of dagger, is one of a cache of new weapons Russian President Vladimir Putin announced in a state address earlier this month, per The Guardian. 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 missile was sacked from the aircraft that took off from southwestern Russian Federation, the ministry said and it released a video of two pilots preparing to take off and then showing the missile launching from the jet, Agence France-Presse reported.

The ministry press release states the Kinzhal system has been tested 250 times in test flight sorties, under all sorts of weather conditions, during day and night, since the beginning of 2018.

"Both Russia and the entire world know the names of our newest planes, submarines, anti-aircraft weapons, as well as land-based, airborne and sea-based guided missile systems".

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White downplayed Putin's comments, saying the USA military was capable of defending the country from any threats.

Jewish groups and US lawmakers condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin's suggestion that the 2016 USA presidential election may have been manipulated by Russian Jews.

Putin's comment also caught the attention of the American Jewish Committee, which said it was "eerily reminiscent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion" - a forged tsarist-era, anti-Semitic pamphlet that purported to describe plans for Jewish domination of Europe.

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. "They do not impact any need on our side for a change in our deterrence posture".
