Russia has tested a new hypersonic missile named Zircon which is six times faster than the speed of sound, making Western military systems obsolete
When it comes to military hardware technology, Russia is highly secretive. Unlike its competitors in the West, who openly boast about the latest military hardware they have, Russia has been careful on how it discloses such information publicly.
If you doubt the West boasts about its military capabilities, watch the video below of President Trump speaking to the Fox Business Network after he launched the Syria Strike.
Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles against Syria. The Russian Defense Ministry, which has personnel stationed at the Syrian airfield where the missiles targeted, said only 23 of the missiles hit the target. The other 36 missiles took a different course. This proves the strike was ineffective, yet Trump bragged about the technological capabilities of the missiles.
Over the years, Russia has made indisputable progress in advancing its military technology. Russia’s military is increasingly becoming automated. The Russian government has tried very hard to conceal the progress made.
