Russia has developed hypersonic weapons with a maximum speed of Mach 9, President Vladimir Putin revealed on Tuesday, at the “Russia Calling!” VTB Investment Forum.

Speaking to gathered experts, Putin called the development of high-speed missiles as a “necessary” response to “Western actions.”

“We have already successfully conducted tests, and from the beginning of the year we will have in service a sea-based hypersonic missile of Mach 9,” Putin said.

Although he didn’t name the weapon, the President is most likely talking about Zircon, the world’s first hypersonic cruise missile capable of continuous aerodynamic flight, while maneuvering in the atmosphere using the thrust of its own engine.
