An unknown aircraft hypersonic missile was tested in Russia


On the eve of the test were the latest aviation hypersonic missiles, which in the future could be included in the armament of the upgraded version of the Tu-22M3M missile carrier. The projectile was launched from the Tu-22M3 bomber. This is reported by the agency. TASS with reference to a source in the DIC.


Recall that the prototype Tu-22M3M rocket carrier passed its first flight tests in 2018. Earlier, the former commander of the Russian Air Force Viktor Bondarev said that a combat aircraft, in addition to cruise missiles X-32, will be able to carry hypersonic products. Information on the expanded combat potential of the modernized bomber was also confirmed by PJSC Tupolev.

In a statement, the news agency’s interlocutor emphasized that the latest rocket tested the day before did not belong to the X-32 line. According to him, work on the creation of this ammunition has been ongoing for several years. At the same time, he did not name any characteristics of the new weapon.

It is worth noting that at the moment in Russia two types of aircraft hypersonic missiles have been developed: the “Dagger”, capable of accelerating to 10 sound speeds and included in the MiG-31K weapons nomenclature, as well as ammunition for the 5th generation Su-57 fighter, about the name and whose characteristics nothing is known.

As for the confirmation of information from a source from the military-industrial complex and the tests that took place on the eve, the Tupolev press service declined to comment.

    By the way, I dare to note - I am the first to raise the topic of the ability to shoot the “Dagger” from the Tu-22 and Tu-160. VO site history hi to all who do not believe in the hands. I don’t even want to bother. This is to be expected. Agree that it’s ridiculous to use a single missile interceptor to deliver massive strikes. No. For single point missions of norms. But for the global war! And mass strikes ......

              Don’t take it with meat! It was said that rockets based on the X-101 are being developed, just for the TU-22M3 bomb bay. And here is your insight? And then:

              I know myself thoroughly. I am absolutely confident in myself.

              Do not slander yourself.

    Vladimir Putin clearly and bluntly said that Russia has a lot of ADVANCED breakthrough weapons and ammunition in stock.
    Here is an example of a new development.
    According to the combat capabilities of weapons, Russia has long overtaken the USA !!!
    Americans fly in junk, and new, flying cans are visible targets for our missiles.

    Smirnov, you're right. Russian military equipment is better than American. The United States can only boast that its military equipment is the best in the world. This is propaganda to buy their equipment.
    It seems to me that this will be the situation - in the first place Russia, in second place China, and in third place America.

    - It would be better if they created something useful.
