The testing of a completely new type product for military use has been successfully carried out in Russia. This first test of a hypersonic aircraft is full success.

Such kind of aircrafts is planned to be installed instead of conventional warheads on intercontinental ballistic missiles. At the same time, it has a serious feature: before entering the dense layers of the atmosphere a hypersonic aircraft performs a difficult maneuver. Such aircraft reaches a top speed of 7 km/s.

The representative of «Roscosmos» noted that all components (board equipment, electronics and control system) are fully manufactured in Russia.
