Russia successfully test-fires ideal hypersonic missile 'Kinzhal'
Russia successfully launched a hypersonic missile which President Vladimir Putin called "an ideal weapon" as he unveiled a new array of next-generation arms earlier this month.
The high-precision Kinzhal (Dagger) missile was launched from a MiG-31 supersonic interceptor jet that took off from an airfield in the South Military District in Russia's southwest.
The missile flies at 10 times the speed of the sound and can overcome air-defence systems.
