Russian Avangard Hypersonic Missile Launch

Putin said the weapon, named “Avangard”, had been launched from Orenburg region in European Russia, hitting its target in eastern Kamchatka nearly 4,000 miles away. The Avangard is a hypersonic glider, developed by Russia, that can be carried as a MIRV payload by heavy ICBMs. It can deliver both nuclear and conventional payloads. The system entered service in March 2018, and was unveiled by Russian President Vladimir Putin as one of the six new Russian strategic weapons.
