This is a new Precision Strike Missile ground-to-ground missile, said the warlord. A missile is created to break through Russian air defense systems in the event of an armed conflict in Europe, as well as to counter Chinese warships in the Pacific Ocean.

The new rocket was already tested at the beginning of the outgoing week at the White Sands training ground in New Mexico. According to the general, test launches were successful. The missile, which will replace the outdated ATACMS tactical system, covered about 240 kilometers and hit all targets. It will be smaller, which will make it possible to place more charges in the plants, added General Rafferty.

Earlier it became known that Russia was preparing to deploy an air defense dome from S-400 over the Arctic. According to the Ministry of Defense, in the coming years, a shield will be deployed over the Russian Arctic that can defend our country from any air strikes, including enemy air attacks, such as aviation, cruise missiles or ballistic missiles.
