An ultra-long-range cruise missile R-77 was discovered in the Zhytomyr region

An unexploded long-range missile R-77 was found in the Zhytomyr region.

Residents of the Zhytomyr region of Ukraine found an unexploded ultra-long-range air-launched cruise missile R-77 in a forest. The missile is capable of hitting targets at distances up to 110 kilometers. Today, in terms of target engagement range, it is second only to the latest Russian R-37 cruise missile, capable of hitting targets at distances up to 400 kilometers.

On the presented frames, you can see that the rocket did not receive any critical damage and did not explode. This caused a number of questions, since, judging by the marks on the nozzle of the rocket engine, the latter was still launched. The only visual damage to the rocket is its crumpled central part - apparently, from a sharp impact of the rocket into the ground, its body was deformed, however, why exactly the rocket did not detonate remains unknown.

According to open sources, R-77 missiles can be used on modernized MiG-29, Su-27, Su-30 and Su-35 fighters, however, it is not known which aircraft acted as the carrier of this missile.

A little earlier, an unexploded Caliber cruise missile was discovered in the Vinnitsa region.
