Russian air defense systems will learn to shoot down hypersonic targets

The Russian anti-aircraft missile system S-500 “Prometheus” will be armed with new anti-missiles. They will be able to intercept hypersonic aircraft.

The newest S-500 should significantly expand the capabilities of the Russian air defense (air defense). In particular, “Prometheus” will be able to shoot down even satellites in low orbit.

The new anti-missile missile will allow the complex to become universal. Together with it, the S-500 will shoot down hypersonic vehicles. It is reported that the missile has already been successfully tested in Kazakhstan. Unfortunately, its technical characteristics are unknown.

Experts suggest that it could be a modernized 53T6M. According to unconfirmed reports, it is capable of destroying ballistic targets at a range of up to 350 kilometers and at an altitude of up to 50,000 meters. The only caveat is that the Prometheus rocket will need a mobile launcher.
