Commander of the Russian Aerospace Forces: "S-500 will be able to destroy hypersonic weapons in space"

The command of the Russian Aerospace Forces confirmed the ability to hit targets with the S-500 directly in space.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Military Space Forces, Sergei Surovikin, stated that the latest Russian S-500 Prometheus system really has unique capabilities and allows you to hit targets even in outer space. Moreover, we are talking about hypersonic targets than today, no country in the world possesses anymore, which indicates a significant technological breakthrough in Russia in terms of ensuring the protection of the country.

“The characteristics laid down in the S-500 air defense system make it possible to destroy, in addition to aerodynamic and ballistic targets, hypersonic weapons of all modifications, including in near space”- said the commander of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Previously, such information has already appeared in the media, however, it is officially confirmed only now. Given the fact that Surovikin announced the defeat of targets in near space, experts believe that the maximum altitude for hitting targets in the orbit of the planet at the S-500 is 100 kilometers, which is enough even to destroy low-orbit spacecraft.

At the moment, tests of the Russian S-500 system are being completed, and it is obvious that the adoption of Prometheus into Russian armament will become possible in 2021.

Uncle Petya Are you a fool?

except Russia, no one has invented a hyperweapon and will not come up with it for a long time, because there are no analogues and their physics does not allow it to be made, unlike ours. Will we bring down our own? Again?
