Putin: Russia will have new hypersonic missile soon

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that his country will soon have a new hypersonic missile.

Speaking virtually at a plenary session of VTB Capital Investment Forum 'Russia Calling!' 2021, Putin noted the new missile will have a maximum speed of Mach 9.

The comments come a day after Russia's latest test of its hypersonic cruise missiles dubbed Zircon. Moscow called the test successful, adding the missile fired from the Admiral Gorshkov warship in the White Sea hit its target which was over 400 kilometers away. Earlier, Putin stated that he expects Zircon missiles to enter official use in 2022.
