Russia previously tested the Zircon hypersonic missile on November 18, which it claims is capable of hitting test targets in the Arctic waters that enter Russian territory. Russia stated at the time that the Zircon hypersonic missile managed to destroy the target with a ‘direct strike’.
In addition to Russia, the United States (US), China and North Korea are also involved in hypersonic missile competition, the next generation of long-range weapons that are difficult to detect. Politik Indonesia
