Russia’s Navy Will Be the First To Use Hypersonic Weapons

Posted by in category: military

Naval authority H.I. Sutton, writing at Forbes, reports that the first launch of the Zircon missile from a submarine is set for next year. The test will take place onboard the Russian Navy’s new submarine K-561 Kazan. Sutton believes Russia is sufficiently advanced in hypersonic missile technology that it will be the first to field operational hypersonic weapons.


Moscow will likely win the race to field the first hypersonic weapon system.
