Let them first calculate the range and speed of our advanced weapons systems, and then make decisions on the threats against our country. In his speech last year Mr. Putin cataloged an array of new weapons that he said Russia was developing, while animations showed missiles striking the United States.
This year he mentioned just a few. This spring, he said, Russia will launch its first nuclear submarine carrying a Poseidon, an unmanned underwater nuclear drone, and will deploy a new Zircon hypersonic missile for the Russian Navy. The missile can fly at nine times the speed of sound with a range of miles, he said. Video The U. But it's by no means foolproof.
