There is data on new developments in the field of hypersonic technologies in Russia. They were reported by the head of the Academy of the General Staff of Russia Vladimir Zarudnitsky.
According to the colonel general, the development of a promising hypersonic missile Kh-95 is in progress, which will be distinguished by a long range of application. The presence of long-range airborne hypersonic weapons allows achieving a significant advantage in the air.
Vladimir Zarudnitsky spoke about the development of the latest hypersonic missile in an interview with the departmental magazine "Military Thought".
According to recent reports, the X-95 hypersonic missile can be armed with Russian strategic missile carriers, including aircraft of the modernized version of the Tu-160M. In the future, such missiles, with a high probability, the newest strategic combat aircraft being developed today can also be armed (again).
The other day there was information that, that the PAK DA in the demo version will be manufactured for 2023 year.
If the latest combat aircraft receives an extended-range X-95 hypersonic missile, then this will become a significant factor in the potential confrontation of the military plan in the medium term. To hit targets, the stealth missile carrier does not have to be in the enemy's air defense zone, after all, a long-range hypersonic missile will do its job after leaving a special compartment. The probability of its interception by the enemy anti-aircraft missile defense system is extremely small.. reason – speed parameters and ability to maneuver.
