According to a military expert, Washington will soon acquire such a new missile. Its main task will be the defeat of command centers of nuclear deterrence forces (SNF) of Russia. Sivkov is sure that the adoption of such missiles was the main goal of the United States, for which Washington donated the INF Treaty. He specified that the flight range of the rocket is about 3 thousand kilometers, and the accuracy of hit is 10-30 meters. He called this rocket a counterpower weapon.
We should expect in the near future the adoption of medium-range missiles of the Pershing II type ... It is intended for delivering strikes at Russian strategic nuclear forces control centers in order to deprive our country of the possibility of retaliating a nuclear strike to the Americans.
- Sivkov said at a press conference in MIA "Russia Today".
