Warhead capacity

The military informed the Avangard has a capacity of flying 27 times quicker than the speed of sound. It transmits a nuclear weapon of nearly equal to 2 megatons.

Moreover, President Putin has stated that Russia had to design the Avangard and other forthcoming weapons systems. The reason behind this is the efforts of the United States to develop a missile defense system that he claimed might destroy Russia’s nuclear limiting. Moscow has made fun of at the United States claims that its missile armor not planned to counter Russia’s enormous missile arsenals.

Hypersonic weapon

Media reports of Russia specified that the Avangard would first be riding on Soviet-built RS-18B intercontinental ballistic missiles. The code name is SS-19 by NATO. It is projected to be fixed to the probable Sarmat heavy intercontinental ballistic missile once it becomes operative.

Team of US officials part of transparency actions

The Defense Ministry stated last month; it established the Avangard to a team of United States checkers as part of transparency actions underneath the New Start nuclear arms agreement with the United States.

Russia has many more hypersonic weapons

The military of Russia formerly had specially made another hypersonic weapon of a lesser range. The Kinzhal (Dagger), which is supported by MiG-31 fighter jets, entered service with the Russian air force last year. President has alleged the missile which flies ten times quicker than the speed of sound. In addition, having a range of higher than 2,000 kilometers. Additionally, it can carry a conventional or nuclear warhead. The military said it has the capacity of striking both navy ships and land targets.

US Narrative

United States administrators have spoken about tapping a layer of radars in space to more rapidly detect enemy missiles. Principally the hypersonic weapons. The government also plans to analyze the idea of grounding interceptors in area. Therefore, the United States can strike entering enemy missiles in the first moments of flight. While the supporter engines are still fiery.
