Russia is the first country to employ hypersonic missiles.

The Russian Ministry of Defense recently reported that the hypersonic missile was employed for the first time in the war with Ukraine.

These ultra-fast “hypersonic” missiles can attack targets anywhere on the planet in less than an hour. Weapons such as hypersonic missiles are new generation technologies refined by many countries such as China, the United States, and India and are thought to be ‘unstoppable.’

In the never-ending hunt for weapons that will provide a country with the extra power it needs to take out its opponents, a new weapon has emerged: ultra-fast ‘hypersonic’ missiles that can reach targets anywhere on Earth in an hour.

Russia employed cutting-edge technologies against Ukraine.

Russia said over the weekend that it had launched a hypersonic missile for the first time in the continuing confrontation with Ukraine. Russia was the first country to test this missile in a combat situation.
According to sources, Defence Ministry Spokesperson Igor Konashenkov stated, “The Kinzhal (Dagger) aviation missile system with hypersonic aero-ballistic missiles destroyed vast subterranean storehouse housing weapons.”
“This missile also destroyed aircraft munitions in the hamlet of Deliatyn in the Ivano-Frankivsk district.
What precisely are hypersonic missiles/weapons?
These are next-generation missiles with highly complex technology. According to Financial Express Online, countries like the United Kingdom, China, and Russia have made significant investments in hypersonic weaponry. India first joined the realm of hypersonics in 2004. In addition, (DRDO) has conducted successful experiments in recent years, albeit the India program is on a lesser scale. The Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle (HSTDV) was successfully tested and is crucial for India’s attempt to create a hypersonic cruise missile system.
Top arms exporters frequently employ wars/conflicts to test their new platforms, while importing nations are likewise eager for such weapons that will aid in defeating their adversaries. The United States is developing hypersonic weapons under its Navy’s conventional Prompt Strike Programme and the Army, Air Force, and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). While the United States, Russia, and China have advanced hypersonic missile programs, India, France, Germany, Japan, and Australia work on hypersonic weapons.
