Russia recently used hypersonic Kinzhal (Dagger) missiles to destroy a large weapons depot in Ukraine’s western Ivano-Frankivsk region.
About Kinzhal Missile:
- Kinzhal means ‘dagger’.
- It is a nuclear-capable air-launched ballistic missile that flies at 10 times the speed of sound and can overcome air-defence systems.
- Range: Approximately 1,500-2,000km and can carry a payload of 480 kg.
- Following the launch, the Kinzhal rapidly accelerates to Mach 4 (4,900 km/h), and may reach speeds of up to Mach 10 (12,350 km/hr).
Verifying, please be patient.
