The development of a new Russian strategic missile, the Yars, came as an unpleasant surprise to the West. The Pentagon has not yet had time to create protection against existing systems, and here the Russian Federation has already provided a novelty.

This is what a military expert says. Yuri Knutov.

Commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces Sergei Karakaev announced a mobile-based missile system, more productive than the previous Yars, which will be able to strike from anywhere in the country.

According to him, this news was sensational and shocking for the West, since Russia is again moving ahead of the Americans in the field of strategic weapons.

“Raytheon has begun developing new radars that will allow us to track hypersonic units – those of our systems that are now being adopted. They are developing a radar today, and today we are already starting to make a missile system that can bypass these new radars. We are going all the time one step ahead,” the analyst stressed.
