Russian Defense Ministry showed close to the newest missile for the Tu-95 and Tu-160


The Russian strategic missile X-101 was first shown up close.

The Russian strategic air-to-surface cruise missile, used by the Tu-95 and Tu-160 bomber bombers, has been repeatedly used to strike at the enemy. Nevertheless, the Russian rocket was first demonstrated from a distance of several meters by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation only now, which makes it possible to verify the threateningness of these weapons, as well as a number of characteristics, including low radar visibility, as evidenced by the shape of the rocket.

The nuclear version of the X-102 missile has a warhead whose power, according to unspecified data, can vary from 250 to 1000 kilotons, which makes this missile a powerful weapon, and given the fact that the missile’s target range of the missile is 5500 kilometers, in fact, Russian strategic bombers that have similar missiles in their armaments can strike at almost every corner of the planet.
