Russia started testing the hypersonic complex in northern latitudes several years ago. The source of the publication noted that as part of the work, the carrier aircraft of Kinzhal missiles – the MiG-31K aircraft – carried out combat launches and combat training patrols.

The Kinzhal complex, which translates into English as ‘dagger’, is designed to fight enemy ships. According to military expert Aleksei Leonkov, a missile of the system can destroy or disable a destroyer, a cruiser or an aircraft carrier at a distance of up to 2,000 kilometers from the coast.
