ZHUKOVSKY, Moscow region, July 18. /TASS/. Russian Defense Ministry would like to get airborne missiles developing hypersonic speed, Deputy Minister of Defense Yuri Borisov told reporters on Tuesday on the sidelines of the MAKS 2017 international aerospace show.
"We're appraising the R&D results accumulated in the sphere and we don't see backwardness on our part," he said. "We're on a par with the leading countries working in this field. I make no secret of our plans to get a range of novel technologies in 2020 through to 2022 and, in the first place, the air-launched weapons that will fly at hypersonic speeds."
"The aerospace manufacturers and especially the United Aircraft Corporation have the plans for creating various modifications of air-launched hypersonic weapons but questions should be addressed mostly to the developers now," Borisov said. "We hope to get the weaponry."
