  1. Just after talking about how incredibly accurate these missiles are, they tell us that they could possibly stray thousands of miles off target.

    1. Because if Russia were to attack a NATO member with it and NATO did not respond. NATO could say it strayed that’s why we have not retaliated.

  2. Let us not forget the Mig that dropped it was already traveling over Mach when it released it. That takes stress off the missile that hits a spike at the start from a dead stop to motion which is the peak G force stage before it levels out on a gradual rising scale as it accelerates to its top speed. Being launched already from a speed above Mach actually eliminates the most fuel intense travel stage of the missile giving it further range than it would have otherwise if launched from a stationary position on the ground.

    1. @Do’s Don’t Russia has deliberately chosen the slow & steady approach, in order to minimise civilian casualties, as also pointed out by some former U.S military veterans.
      Russia is encircling enemy troops in various places, a standard Soviet tactic known as a “Cauldron”.
      Right now around 60,000 Ukrainian troops are trapped in Cauldrons in the east.
      The Cauldron around Mariupol is now beginning to have an impact.

    2. @Timur Ali Minimizing civilian casualties is the last thing on Russia’s mind, that’s the most ridiculous statement I’ve read yet considering the facts we can all see with our own eyes.

    3. @OverlyDecent During the special operation, Russian troops received documents confirming the fact that Ukraine has created biological weapons components, confirming the participation of the United States in the development of Ukrainian bioweapons based on especially dangerous pathogens of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera and other deadly diseases.
      The facts of the Kiev regime’s emergency cleanup of traces of a military biological program funded by the US Department of Defense implemented in Ukraine on the day of the start of Russia’s special military operation on February 24, 2022 were also revealed. In total, there were 30 biological laboratories on the territory of Ukraine. We remind you that the coronavirus epidemic began with a leak from one of these biological laboratories located in Wuhan.
      The Russians have real evidence of the development of biological weapons in Ukraine with the support of the United States, documents, certificates of workers, etc. This is not a bluff, as you would like. But you don’t need proof, you believe everything your leaders tell you. You are blind. It’s just that America is very afraid of being asked how it uses laboratories in other countries and for what. And the United States is trying in every possible way to get away from this topic. Answer the question: why hasn’t the US destroyed its chemical weapons stockpile yet?
      The terrorist states of America and the empire of lies they rule lie to everyone. But….America will not be able to evade the answer, it will be asked.
      The whole world has suffered from the coronavirus, and the Russians have found evidence of who developed it. And not only this virus. The Russians are trying to convey this to the whole world. Not everyone is blind and deaf.
      Stop plunging the world into wars and epidemics. Enough. Everyone should finally open their eyes and put an end to this.

  3. Yes , very dangerous. Impossible to intercept, good way to deceive. Russian plans are very good. But in reality , terrible . Remember the “Russian Concorde” ? That one , that in his presentation in Paris broke in 2. The great nuclear plant, an example for the world in Chernobyl , that exploted. The best supersubmarine ever built the “Kursk” in the year 1994. With only 2 important missions in 2000 the submarine sank itself by his own torpedo. In Ukranie the tires of the tank carriers are getting flat . Bad roads , bad weather , civil resistance with no army experience , have stall the Rusian “Superpower” . Russia does not have the quality of the west. USA, Germany, U:K: they have a better missile in the works , but is not wise to advertise.

  4. It’s intended to take down something big and well defended and important, right? Like an aircraft carrier. Against the ukrainian forces it’s pretty pointless. They can’t hit dispersed ground forces and if they want to destroy a hospital, the can just shell it. So, maybe they’re showing it off to tell NATO to back the F down. But I have an alternative, much dumber possible explanation.
    This weapon system is the best they got, if by that you mean most expensive. (Second to nukes I guess.) And the war isn’t going as well as expected. So someone said “Why aren’t we winning? What capability aren’t we using? What, our best weapon is on the bench?! Deploy immediately our best and strongest weapon!”

    1. Ukrainians soldiers use barracks, Russians are killing them like ants. Just another day 200 in single strike.

  5. “the high expense of hypersonic weapons—a 12-missile Iskander brigade reportedly sells for as much as $300 million—means no military, even Russia’s, is likely to possess very many of them.” Forbes 17 Dec. 20  8:00AM

    1. @south sd sider lol Damn Right. They’re not just playin hopscotch with ET at Area 51/ Wright Patterson I can promise ya that much 😉

  6. The hypersonic missiles are still fired by a fighter jet that can’t travel as fast as the missiles themselves. So if you can target the jet before it fires, then it’s a useless weapon.

  7. The missiles have huge capacity when blasted to reach a deep down underground target. The faster the missiles the harder the collision and the deeper damaging reachability.

    1. @A. B. That’s the same, for the opponent. It’s the same game, since 1949. Nothin’ has changed since that time. Who shoots first, dies second…

    2. @Chris Vy. you don’t know much about history do you, lol 😆 almost all your statements are untrue. I think your believing propaganda and saying it is fact 🙄 Russia, has lost many of its wars, let’s be honest, against all sorts; Finland, Afghanistan, Crimean War “Britain and France”, World War 1 “Germany”, to name a few. Russia had a treaty with the AXIS countries at the beginning of WW2, though they switch sides and then of course contributed to the Allies greatly by the end of WW2.

    3. @Charles Crowley – History is not the subject dude. You got me wrong, crowley. Why you laugh as you are wrong? Ha..ha…

    4. @Melchior von Sternberg – The US has a remarkable record on media warfare backed by successful Hollywood business movies. Counter media wars from their opponents are null or negligible. In media warfare lies can be truth and vv depend upon how the strategy is being carried out. You’re right only stupid children can spread that nonsense. But by the right media war scenario? and How about you?
      We are talking about media war now. Stick to the subject.

    5. @Chris Vy. I am European and not American. A significant difference. I am a relatively old man whose education was excellent. I’ll tell you one thing, little one: The “media war” is worth absolutely nothing! It’s just some Secret Service nutcase pomposity. When push comes to shove, it’s still “Right or wrong… My Country” and it’s not about public opinion that’s being decided. Because when the situation becomes confusing, you return to what you bring with you from experiences in your life. And no media campaign is of any use here. That’s the best way to reach idiots. These idiots, however, are used to ultimately listening to those they always listen to. End of the story…

  8. The advantages of a hypersonic missile are many:
    1. Speed. No time for the enemy to react (either leave or activate/track with air defenses).
    2. Undetectable by radar. At mach 10, the temperatures developed (friction of air with the surface of the missile, almost 3000 Celsius) cause the air enveloping the missile to become plasma. Plasma is basically ionized gas which absorbs all electromagnetic radiation, thus rendering the object invisible to radar.
    3. The kinetic energy at hypersonic speeds is huge. It is estimated that the kinetic energy of a Kinzhal is more than 4,000Kg of TNT, making it ideal to hit well fortified ammunition stores and command centers deep in the ground (compare this with its conventional warhead which has a weight of 500Kg). In other words, much higher penetration than conventional missiles.
    4. The Kinzhal is air launched and the range stated is apparently the combined range of the missile and the carrier aircraft. Thus it is 2000Km when carried by the MiG-31K and 3000Km when carried by the Tu-22M3.
    5. be able to maneuver during its flight to avoid air defenses (as if that is necessary).

    1. @Le Trop Chiant nobody can. If traveling at a substantial speed it gives off radiation. These missiles have to reach altitude before they can go hypersonic. So you have the ability to detect them and begin intercepting them with a fair amount of time. Like a goalie in soccer you can be much slower and defend a confined space vs trying to get past that confined space.

    2. @Le Trop Chiant it’s maneuverability is dependent on it’s speed. G forces are real and don’t just affect the human body. So did this Russian missile pull a crazy maneuver you would see a fighter jet pull? Or did it just fly straight to the target after getting lifted to altitude by a mid-29 or whatever aircraft they used. Yeah it would be pretty crazy to see pulse lasers around the missile vaporizing the atmosphere making friction and maneuverability a non issue at Mach 10. Technically America already has a hypersonic glide vehicle able to launch independent missiles and hit multiple targets. Space x has done it. Anything in orbit is traveling at 7km/s which is like Mach 16/17 idk Mach 10 is 4km/s. And it can land on a runway. China overshot their target by like 2km. But if we’re talking about a missile that’s launched from a jet and not a damn space rocket. Then it’s quite different cause it’s one missile and is traveling through the atmosphere and has to maneuver through the atmosphere. But yeah if you have a gliding reentry vehicle with multiple missiles of it’s own then yeah that’s going to be quite difficult to defend. But I don’t think that’s what we saw Russia use unless I’m mistaken.

    3. @Jen Kem 💉💉💉💉💉👏👏👏🤣
      Get another one you 🐑 🐏 🐑 🐏 🐑 🐏

  9. As the first expert said, it is a good opporrunity to NATO to study this missil in real combat. I believe, they are using Ukraine to evaluate real Russia’s military capabilities.

    1. That’s why it’s 20% of force on Ukraine (downside made everybody belive in the greatest underdog story ever)

  10. Last week UK said they are sending a game changing defence systsem to Ukraine. Russia responded with this hypersonic missile. Now the UK defence system is wondering how did that just happen🤡

    1. I like china because they try to challenge USA via economic influence to the world not threats of war such that when they’re super power, they shall grow and protect lives of everyone not WAR of losing lives.

    2. @No Name Dumbo Ukrainian military and azov destroyed completely.russia just silently doing its buisness. Ukrainians on the other side, busy producing and spreading false narrative with western media as their allies and partner in crime. Those who barks loud don’t bite. If Russians were loosing ,then they would be desperate to find a way of spreading propaganda. Russians are silent going about their buisness where you guys are jumping around like some primates.

    3. @Musonda Body&MindHealth – Yeah Russia lost 15500 soldiers and 5 generals in just under a month, the country is going Bankrupt and its a pharih state and he can’t even keep his troops resurplied even though the country he’s invaded is next door! Russia is a laughing stock! 🇬🇧👍🇺🇦😂🇷🇺

  11. Like most weapons and capabilities that Russia has hyped for the last 50 years Russias hypersonic missiles are a big yawn; these missiles are not new tech, it is old existing ballistic middle rocket engines fitted to a different guidance system and not the wave riders and ramjets the US is developing. truth is most weapons won’t be intercepted in rout to target. It’s the same old Kremlin false bravado. The only thing new is the hype around this.

  12. What so many seem to miss is that the arms warehouse (depo) was build during cold war and is located underground so as to withstand nuclear blast. They used this hypersonic missile to penetrate the ground and the underground bunker thus showing that it can reach virtually anywhere

    1. To be precise, speed, geometric factor of penetrating body, and mechanical characters of penetrating body, like strength, toughness(brittleness) etc

    2. @Hellstrom Carbunkle living on Hope’s. If you watch CNN you won’t see it. Try other international channels you will see it.

    3. That is because the missile is hitting at angle of 90° does hitting the roof of a building which is the weakest part of any building

  13. Isn’t it fairly obvious why they would use it? As Tony Stark says in Iron Man: ‘Find an excuse to let one of these out and the bad guys won’t even want to come out of their caves’.

  14. He eluded that these hypersonic middles can be controlled manually, seems like a brief, hard to control endeavor.

  15. Way back in the 1960s I was working Air Defense systems and out radars kept picking up trucks and buses on the highway 300 miles away. We now have over the curve of the earth radar. It is possible we can do a lot more than our leaders are telling us.

    1. Why would they?? A lot of our US citizen’s have no idea what we have in the top secret arsenal. the weapons like the Javelen and others are just additional to some much more devastating weapons. as a former service member, I will leave it at that…

    2. @lionel howell US spends like 800 billion on defense budget.
      2x the amount of both China and Russia’s budget.
      No doubt they secretly got some real nasty stuffs.

    3. @Khant Min Nyo Actually 1 Trillion a year ago, but close though. That was only to get that updated weaponry up to standard. The previous comment was not SARCASM, I was just stating some facts!!

  16. This was not used to take out the ammo dump building. This was a very visual demonstration of a weapon when armed with a nuclear warhead it would be unstoppable.

  17. It’s amazing that they could make this even though their semiconductors are about 14 years behind.

    1. Say what you want about Russia but making rockets and weapons are the two things they’re good at if nothing else lol

    2. @Jeff Shankle those 82 space shuttle missions are bound to have taken up something – guaranteed none of us will know about it.

    3. @Adi B There’s beautiful women and good alcohol almost everywhere, but not rockets and weapons 😛

  18. That can’t be right. The speed of a missile launched by THAAD defence system is over 8 mach. The Russian missile flies under the speed of 5 mach. And it’s been dropped by the jet at a very high altitude which makes it detectable by a radar quite early.
