Russia to test an unlimited-range cruise missile in the Arctic

An unlimited-range cruise missile will be launched from a test facility built on Novaya Zemlya.

In the period from September 21 to October 21, 2021, it is planned to launch an unknown rocket from a test site on Novaya Zemlya. It is known that the launch will be carried out from the territory of the test complex, which was previously used for test launches of a domestic cruise missile with a nuclear power plant, which is capable of flying at an unlimited distance.

“Of the large number of recent Russian and American notifications for the closure of zones for military exercises with rocket firing, for testing missile weapons and space launches, this particular area is of particular interest to experts and enthusiasts. It is possible that this closure for the next test of the Burevestnik rocket launcher, and if so, the product may not be limited to a short-term flight. ", - reports "Telegram" - the community "Voenno-boltovoy".

Despite the absence of official statements, on the territory of Novaya Zemlya there are no complexes capable of launching missiles at sufficiently large distances. In addition, information has already appeared that the Russian military intends to test the Burevestnik cruise missile by the end of this year.

According to a number of reports, previous tests of the Russian Burevestnik cruise missile ended in failure due to problems with the stable operation of the nuclear power plant, which, apparently, was then reworked.

And when will it fly and not fall right after the start?

And it will fly around the ground 8 times and fall on the launcher
