(Great Power War)Â A year ago during Russiaâ€™s version of a â€˜state of the unionâ€™ address, President Vladimir Putin announced that his military had developed a hypersonic ballistic missile capability.
According to aÂ reportÂ by The Duran:
During his yearly â€œState of the Russian Federationâ€ speech, modeled roughly after the United Statesâ€™ own â€œState of the Unionâ€ address, President Putin announced the deployment of six extremely advanced weapons systems and technologies.
One is a hypersonic, in-atmosphere device that can fly at Mach 20 and steer itself to evade radar and detection systems. Called the Avangard, this system was said by President Putin to already be in production and deployed.
â€œThis system is characterized by the ability to fly in dense layers of the atmosphere at hypersonic speed to intercontinental distances and range, at speeds in excess of Mach 20,â€ Putin said during his speech.
