Hypersonic rocket


Published video of tests of the S-500 air defense system - the rocket accelerated to incredible speed in a split second

The Russian Ministry of Defense has published a video of the tests of the S-500 Prometey air defense system.

The Russian defense department has published a video of tests of the newest Russian anti-aircraft missile system S-500 "Prometheus". Unique tests made it possible to unleash the potential of the Russian air defense / missile defense system, and also confirmed the fact that the missile is designed to destroy high-speed targets, including hypersonic missiles and hypersonic aircraft.

In the video footage presented, you can see how the launcher, capable of carrying two anti-aircraft guided missiles, launches one of the missiles. A large cloud of formed smoke indicates that the initial flight speed of the rocket is very high. Moreover, after the rocket has risen to a certain height, its sharp acceleration occurs. According to a number of assumptions, the rocket could develop hypersonic speed at the start. In addition, the engine flame can be seen to have a small diameter. This allows us to assert that it will be very problematic to detect such a start with special sensors.

To date, the S-500 Prometheus (Triumphant) system has not yet been adopted by the country. This can happen before the end of this year, especially since, thanks to the new Russian weapons, it will be possible to easily detect enemy aircraft and missiles at distances of up to 800 kilometers and hit them from a distance of up to 600 kilometers.

The speed is not more than 1.5 km per second.

Where did she go in the cloud ?? last seconds !!
