Tactical Missiles Corporation: Hypersonic Missiles in Russian Armed Forces to Appear in 2030-2040
Mass flow in the Russian Armed Forces of hypersonic missiles will begin in 2030-2040, CEO of Tactical Missiles Corporation Boris Obnosov said.
Head of Tactical Missiles Corporation had previously stated that the first hypersonic air-launched missiles can be created in the Russian Federation until 2020. “The program is divided into sub-steps. I think that in the next decade, it will show itself, and mass migration to hypersound is the case of the thirties and forties of this century,” Obnosov said in an interview to “Defense of Russia”.
The main difficulty in creating hypersonic weapons, according to Obnosov, is to develop new materials. Other key objectives are in the field of engine construction and on-board equipment.
