IRKUTSK, October 23. (Itar-Tass) – Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin announced that Russia initiated tests of a new hypersonic weapon.
“I can say that field tests are being conducted: they’re classified both in Russia and in the United States,” he said, noting that Russian technology does not lag behind the American.
Reviewing the Russian military-industrial complex, Rogozin said, that Russia is a relative leader when it comes to nuclear technology. Component construction is a problem spot, he admitted, noting that Russia will recover this industrial sector in the next few years.
