Chill Out

Vladimir Vladimirovich is running for reelection and is talking up the great “new” weapons that are going to “Make Russia Great Again”: New Russian nuke weapons aren’t new and may not be ready, say experts.

All ICBMs are “hypersonic” and travel at speeds of Mach 5 and higher. US anti-missile defense missiles move faster than Mach 15. You have to move at hypersonic speeds to get high enough to to travel intercontinental distances. Changing direction at those speeds is more than slightly problematic.

These weapons, if they work as claimed and get deployed , which is not certain at this point, doesn’t alter the reality of a massive US response.
