MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. Russia may develop hypersonic weapons before the end of this decade, Director-General of the Tactical Missiles corporation Boris Obnosov told Russian News Service radio on Saturday.
Development of these weapons is given a priority, he said. “To create weapons with a speed exceeding Mach 4 (about 4,900 km/h) is a major task. This implies a huge scope of scientific problems,” he noted.
The corporation is working on these weapons for Russia to be in parity with many developed countries, Obnosov said.
“Weapons which will reach a speed of Mach 6-8 (about 7,350-9,800 km/h) should be produced before the end of this decade,” the corporation chief noted.
