RUSSIA has sent a chilling warning to the world by testing a new “hypersonic glide vehicle” that can blast past missile defences a fire nuclear warheads at its enemies.
State media Russia Today claims the new technology will make it impossible its enemies’ defences to calculate the warhead’s trajectory before it is too late.
According to the media site, the test of the hypersonic cruise vehicle was a success after launching a UR-100N strategic ballistic missile near the Kazakhstan border.
The new RS-28 missile that military experts hope to arm the vehicle with is reportedly capable of carrying a ten ton payload, which can strike in any direction once it is launched.
It comes as Putin’s armed forces swell, featuring the highest number of attack submarines patrolling the Scottish and Scandinavian border since the Cold War.
Mr Putin bolstered his military forces by deploying another submarine fleet – meaning Russia has its highest number of attack vessels in the area for 20 years.
