About our Kinzhal news
Latest news on the Kinzhal, a type of hypersonic missile developed by Russia that can be launched from aircraft, such as the MiG-31 fighter jet. The missile is designed to fly at speeds of up to Mach 10, or 7,680 miles per hour, and has a range of over 1,200 miles. It uses a manoeuvrable reentry vehicle, which allows it to evade enemy defences and strike targets with great accuracy.

It has been touted by Russian officials as a game-changing weapon that can overcome any existing missile defence system.
