“The last tests showed that he has reached speeds close to the speed of Mach 30. About 27 swings it has gained speed,” Borisov said in an interview with TV channel “Russia 24”.

According to him, with such indicators it will not be able to shoot down none of the anti-missile missile.

As noted by Borisov, the principal difference of this complex is that it is impossible to predict where it will next time.

December 26, the Ministry of defense of Russia on the instructions of President Vladimir Putin conducted a successful test launch of a rocket complex “Avangard”.

The system will go to the army in 2019.
