    Judging by the launch dynamics, this is a hypersonic product. And from the message of the Ministry of Defense / Aerospace Forces about a conditional hit of a target with a given accuracy, one can conclude that the SBP is the BZO of this missile. The main thing is that the test confirmed the calculated data.
