Russia is working hard and developing the latest air-launched X-95 long-range hypersonic missile, Colonel-General Vladimir Zarudnitsky, head of the military academy of the General Staff, said in an article for the Military Thought magazine.

Zarudnitsky said that he considered dominance in the aerospace sphere to be the most important condition for the successful conduct of hostilities, and it can be ensured through the effective use of strike and fighter aircraft.

“For these purposes, for the Aerospace Forces, new and modernized models of weapons, military and special equipment are being developed and adopted, such as the Tu-160M ​​strategic missile-carrying bomber; the Kinzhal aviation hypersonic missile system; long-range high-precision airborne weapons, in particular, the X-95 hypersonic missile,” Zarudnitsky said.

An unnamed RIA Novosti source in the military-industrial complex also confirmed that the missile was being developed for use in the armament of the modernized Tu-22M3M long-range bomber, the modernized Tu-160M ​​strategic bomber and the Advanced Long-Range Aviation Complex. The interlocutor of the agency claims that “prototypes of the new product have already been tested from the air carrier.”

According to Zarudnitsky, domination in the aerospace sphere is “the most important condition for the successful conduct of hostilities by land and sea groupings of troops.” In his opinion, it is necessary not only to produce and adopt new types of weapons, but also to develop “new forms of their use and methods of combat operations”, which will ensure the achievement of domination in the aerospace sphere.

At the end of June, President Vladimir Putin announced that the Sarmat intercontinental missile and the Zircon hypersonic missile would soon enter service. He recalled that the Avangard and Dagger hypersonic complexes had already been put on alert.

In addition, he added, unmanned aerial vehicles, over-the-horizon detection radars, anti-aircraft missile systems, and other state-of-the-art military equipment are being created.

A source in the military-industrial complex told RIA Novosti that a new hypersonic missile is being developed for Tu-22M3M and Tu-160M ​​bombers, as well as for the Advanced Long-Range Aviation Complex (PAK DA).

“Prototypes of the new product have already been tested from the air carrier,” Zarudnitsky said.

In February, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that the various hypersonic systems would become the backbone of Russia’s non-nuclear deterrent forces.

Currently, the Russian Aerospace forces are carrying out experimental combat duty of the Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, which during tests reached a speed of Mach 10.

Intra-fuselage hypersonic missiles are being developed for the fifth generation Su-57 fighter.

The warships and submarines of the Navy are to be armed with the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile – on July 19 the frigate “Admiral Gorshkov” successfully test-fired such a projectile and successfully destroyed a ground target.

China vs Russia

Russian junk


Are you a qualified aviation and/or electronic engineer? Capable of balanced and rational assessment of the complexities within competing and advanced guided missile technologies? Safe to say, NO.

China vs Russia


Russia is collapsing from within


Well, gee, that is really on point to your lack of any relevant knowledge regarding advanced missile technologies.


The video you presented is 5 years old. The video predicts that the Russian economy would worsen … it didn’t … it grew from 2016 to 2020 despite the “crippling sanctions” with a downturn after 2020 due to Covid like the rest of the world. To put it in perspective Russia’s exports have grown 60% from 1999 – 2021 while the USA’s has grown 59.4% despite Russia being sanctioned by the west.

In those five years in which Russia was predicted to be in an economic tailspin Russians purchasing power grew by 15%. They built Nord Stream 2 despite immense pressure from the USA. Assad is still in power despite “Assad must go”. Russia has asserted military control over the Eastern Mediterranian by stationing naval aviation in Syria … Russia can now shut down shipping the Bosperous and the Suez canal from it’s A2/Ad bubble in Syria. Germany and France now want to drop sanctions on Russia against the wishes of the USA and Russia is now in a defacto military alliance with China.

Over those same five years what’s happened with the USA? They’ve printed $trillions debasing the currency. They blinked on Nord stream 2 and threw Ukraine under the bus. They are close to war with China … a war that even the Americans themselves say they will lose. They are being run out of the Middle East. Millions are homeless in the USA and millions more are about to be evicted in the midst of a covid surge. The US economy is in the midst of an immense asset bubble centered around real estate and the stock market that could pop at any time which when combined with the massive drought and trade wars could see a collapse of US agriculture.


A video from 2016. And yet Russia is here, stronger than ever. Are you a natural born moron or did you to become one?


Rucking fetard.


So, bringing up a 5-year-old, opinion-based video is all you’ve got? You must be an American, right?

What a joke!


You spelled the U.S. and Isisrael wrong tho Shlomo…


Nope your just Too dumb to ever come to learn how to use any of it,let alone afford it.


Salty kosher tears detected…


Very good

north K

russia and china are conducting a massive joint military exerce in northern china currently involving 10000 troops from each country. no report on south front?


No, but it will make your ass like charcoal.


The X in Cyrillic is often translated into the western Kh because it sounds very much like the ch in the scottish word Loch. X-95 and Kh-95 are the same thing with the X-95 being transliterated and Kh-95 being phonetic. (ie the Russian character is directly translated into an X but sounds like Kh in English).

The Russian MIC is an unstoppable machine. Their quality and efficiency is unrivaled.


You must love sulphur,or end as the other fossil in chinese mortar to be soo cia like nose outta ye joint:
Allready you lost over 90 in sinae,just like that! And china triags fixed up your belarus problem child.


The USA does not need weapons like this. They have no use for it. It is not an asset that would be used to bully third world countries 3000 miles from American territory. The US only uses Military force to bully third world countries that border or are within few hundred miles of Israel. That’s been the US Militaries #1 mission for the last 45 years. The USA have had their young Servicemen’s boots on the ground and their blood in the sand for 35 of the last 45 years. It seems that the citizens of the US could not be happier to have young American Servicemen stand guard as the Israeli Foreign Legion so Israel’s young men can sleep safely in their beds. There is a good chance the majority of the US population is unaware that this is occurring since the majority of the population is illiterate.
