Russia To Debut New Hypersonic Missile For The First Time During Victory Day Parade

With Moscow–Washington tensions approaching a boiling point, Russia has increasingly debuted a wide array of next-generational weapons to defend itself against Western aggressors.

According to Russian News Agency TASS, Russia will showcase its newest Kinzhal hypersonic missile and other high-tech military weapons during the upcoming May 09 Victory day parade based in Moscow.

“I want to remind you that less than a week has been left before the most important and revered holiday in Russia – Victory Day. Preparations for the military parade are in full swing,” Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu said last week.  

Back in March, Russian President Vladimir Putin used his state-of-the-nation speech to showcase six superweapons that would supposedly revolutionize the game of geopolitics for Russia, and give the country a significant military advantage over the United States. In particular, Putin revealed to the world that his newest hypersonic missile could travel upwards of ten times the speed of sound and overcome all existing missile defense systems operated by the West.

As quoted by TASS, “upgraded MiG-31K fighter jets armed with the Kinzhal hypersonic missile system will take part in the Victory Day parade in Moscow on May 9.” General Sergei Shoigu said.

New photos surfaced last Friday on social media of the Russian Aerospace Forces’ Mikoyan MiG-31 (NATO codename “Foxhound”) carrying the Kinzhal hypersonic missile during Victory Day rehearsals.

“Apart from advanced Su-57, Su-30SM and MiG-29SMT aircraft, upgraded MiG-31K fighters armed with the cutting-edge Kinzhal hypersonic missile systems will take part in the parade’s air component,” General Sergei Shoigu added.

“I want to draw the attention of the personnel involved in the events to the need to comply with safety measures and the rules of hardware operation,” the defense minister pointed out.

The military parade will also feature “advanced weapon systems, including Tor-M2 air defense missile complexes, Terminator combat vehicles, Uran-6 and Uran-9 robotic systems, modern drones, off-road buggies, and snowmobiles,” said General Sergei Shoigu

A clear consensus is emerging between Moscow–Washington: a new Cold War is developing, with many uncertainties ahead. While Moscow is eager to show off their modern weaponry this Wednesday, President Donald Trump is expected to have a military parade of his own on November 11, in Washington, D.C.

Is it time to get bullish on war?

I'll bet that just as on the eve of WWI and WWII, all the arms manufacturers on both sides are in the control if not ownership of the cabal.

Talpiot shows that control of technology is already in these very same hands.  I am also certain that most critical war making technology patents are also in these same hands.  If a Russian state owned war material corporation starts cranking up production then large royalties will have to be paid somewhere in Jerusalem, and that same place in Jerusalem would have veto over any sales.  This is why Iran and Syria still don't have S300 missiles, let alone S400 or S500.  Call it just another kosher tax, or tribute to gods chosen people.

Technology in the hands of the chosenites results in clever licensing breakthroughs and very little true technological progress. (((They))) tend to make better lawyers than engineers, many more chances of show off their cunning against the goyim.

Think Windows/Microsoft "innovation", or the recent i9 processor from Intel. Greed has a really negative affect on technological progress...

The "Talpiot" plan is more to take hostage the technological centers and force the US to defend its Zionist masters. Innovation wise I think it will backfire - Russia, China and Europe, Japan/Korea will start to take the lead and already have in many fields while the US technology infrastructure, manned by green card engineers plods on... that infrastructure will start to implode when the quality of life back home leads the green card guys to migrate back...

Even worse for the US, the Frankfurt School driven Cultural Marxists are already a huge brake on true innovation. Do you really think the real out of the box thinkers want to work at Google these days where the PC crowd runs the show???

The problem with posting garbage like this is that it undermines ALL of the information you trolls post. The F-35 has been received, in its near-production phase, with LOVE by actual combat fighter pilots. One of the senior test pilots from Norway, with over 2,000 hours in the seat of the F-16 f;lying coalition combat missions, found the F-35 to be by far the best dogfighting machine he has had the pleasure of flying. He wrote a detailed journal of his experiences for publication, echoing what other experienced combat pilots have said: the JSF functionality makes it not the top of the heap in certain specs, but as an integrated air combat fighter, it will punch out the opposition as always, and is the best aircraft they have had the pleasure to fly in actual engagement.

The history of fighter development is ALWAYS littered with problematic development. Computer sims ALWAYS show inferior performance as thework through design flaws and inconsistencies. THAT IS WHY THEY DO THE SIMS. 

The most widely quoted sim of the F-35 in a mock full scale invasion of Taiwan used the FIRST prototype’s specs and weaknesses as the basis for its modeling. Since then, the pane has undergone thousands of mods and tweaks, with most if not all of the flaws corrected.

Counter to critics expectations, this flexible, multi-platform design has not, in fact, compromised performance for utility. Actual pilots, flying actual current gen planes, feel that its abilities create advantages in all scenarios that the F-16 simply could not match. The maneuverability and speed changes allow for AOA vectors that are simply not achievable in modern fighter aircraft, and make ALL the difference in aerial combat.

Expect, as always, the next generation of Russian planes to mimic the features of theF-35. No Western military need lose sleep over the capabilities of this airframe. 

Since Vlad needs and wants chaos and war wherever he can sow it, ideally using the military of other nations as his cordwood, it’s increasingly likely the F-35 will get ample opportunity to demonstrate the usual unpleasant truth to the trolls. Absurd casualty comparisons against enemy craft, and vast underperfomance of vaunted Russian tech.

However, it would be a better outcome for all if the pompous, vain, ethically-challenged billionaire autocrat murderer would ratchet down his bellicosity and warmongering for the good of mankind and his own people. Then maybe Trump could do the same.

Did you SEE the video of his inauguration??? What a banana republic buffoon the Russian STRONGMAN is. Tracking camera for three unending minutes as he strides the halls of the Kremlin to march out into the crowd of amazing admirers - like Steven Seagal!!!!!!!  LMFAO!!!!!!!!!! STEVEN FUCKING SEAGAL!!!!!!

I’ll see you Scott Baio and raise you one tubby movie toughguy.

We shall see. If the F35 were so good, they US/Israelis would have prominently used it in Syria. They did not and kept the F35 hidden in the hanger. If the US were so proud of it, the picture of Trump giving his speech in San Diego would have had an F35 in the background instead of a fifty year old F15.

What some Norwegian pilot thinks I don't really care. I care more for what US test pilots think and they are not very impressed with the F35 in a dogfight. "Not top of the heap in certain specs" indeed, where the F16 wipes the floor with the F35.

One problem with the F35 is that full stealth doesn't really exist and as sensors improve it is an advantage that is fading very quickly - it was probably useful back in the 1990s. The other problem is that if using it as a standoff missile platform is the only role in which it shines, there are much cheaper ways to do that like refurbishing some old F4 Phantoms... then when the S300/S400/S500 blasts them out of the sky you won't cry as much...

There is not one US pilot who has flown the latest iteration of the 35 who does not love it. You quote reactions from 5 years ago. 

You prove your ignorance by calling it a standoff fighter. That is its lowest priority mission. It is primarily a close ground support (the Marines were the motivators of the entire program worth their need for a vertical takeoff frame) and close air engagement fighter.

Lower and slower are the main issues in the coming battles. The US is not building wart plans for Russia. Not one senior USMIL officer Ihave spoken with views that as an even remotely winnable war. Rather, the focus is on smaller scale warfare.

 

Consider this, my friend. If Russia believed the 35 and US weapons were so inferior, why would it be building weapons designed to make small scale war unfightable, and pointing only to global nuclear war? It knows its tech will be overcome, and therefore must focus on Doomsday weaponry. If you were not worried about your opponent’s jab, why would you work so hard on your blocking and right hook?

Our US arsenal is, indeed, filled with 30+ year old stuff.  Some still have good abilities and the rest should be replaced with modern weapons.  This problem is due to the military industrial companies influence on our Congress critters to sell more upgrades to old stuff and when designing new stuff stretching out the contracts to get cost overrun money.  Plus, the military procurement bureaucracy would rather push paper than getting completed modern weapons to those who need modern weapons to fight. 

 

We spend too much money and get fewer weapons out of the process.  Our government decision making is complex and few have any real power to get the job done.  Mr. Putin has centralized all power to him and his staff so when hes\ says do it now, it happens.  We in the US are not ready to give any of our presidents this due to the way power is split in our constitution.

Age of the metal and the major design configuration are legit factors to consider.  However, there's no law that says software, electronics, and counter measures have to stay the way they were at the time of manufacture.  And engines and guns can be replaced as well.

With four- and seven-thousand m.p.h. missiles, ultra-accurate target designation, and newer ATGMs,  it's not clear that the very latest tank/aircraft design is the solution you think it is.  I gather that our anti-SAM tactic is to swarm with drones and cruise missiles to take out site, after which even older planes can, hopefully, operate with impunity.

It's thus not the age of some systems.  It's what is available to fight the robot/computer/deception war first. The Abrams still seems like a formidable tank to me.  And it can be retrofitted with with close-in defense against ATGMs like supposedly "modern" tanks.

I saw a video of how swarms of A/I-capable drones smaller than my palm can, supposedly, be programmed to find and kill enemy infantry.  If true, ATGMs are a non-problem for tanks and SAMs aren't a problem for fighters.

I was waiting for someone to point that out... yes I know... but it is the prevalence of militaries on show around the world that I am referencing... dictatorships have always put their militaries on review if for no other reason then to intimidate their own people (yes, I realize that we are assuming the vestiges of dictatorship, but we still have the outward expression of democracy, please no one point out that we are theoretically a republic).

So my point remains... militaries on parade are a sign of the times... a particularly ominous sign, or would be if their were not a flock of canaries in the coal mine at this point. And for those who want to point to the fact that canaries are not typically found as flocks in coal mines, let me suggest to you that was a metaphor.

Ah yes boys and girls. There is just something about goose stepping troops  and processions of armored cars and military police on Harleys in front of orators billowing spittle that make for such a warm nostalgic feel. Won't be long now....

Yeah... that whole republic spiel gets real old real fast.  The proles like to recite and even be reminded about such mythical mutterings but the reality is far different.  Were they to ever truly shake off their chains and rise up and recapture their freedom they'd be reminded over and over by the powers that be that they were "traitors"....  And even then they'd get stabbed in the back by "patriots", who having drunk deep of the statist kool-aid, won't countenance anyone rocking the boat even though it's a glorified slave ship

...and they learned HOW to properly plow their roads from Buffalo.....

In the 60's a group of Soviet officials, along with numerous driver/trainers, came to Buffalo to learn more effective ways of snow removal.

I'm from the area. I remember this vividly. I tried to search a link for you, but this was the 60's - too far back I guess.

 

....but it happened.

Could you arrange a meet and greet for me with some of the Jewish masters? Because in my career at the world’s most infamous IB, the West’s largest CB, working with a dozen or so cabinet officials and the CEOs of the globe’s largest financial institution, I never met any of them. It actually is quite apparent the world is still run by white Christian men, and the Joos are lovely pet producers, very good at making money, but seldom with any real power. 

I am afraid you give the Jew more credit than he has earned. He is good for one thing and one thing only:

Always, Always, Blame the Joos™

All "we" succeed in doing is creating more "hungry" and "needy."  The welfare state spent $3T for all social welfare programs at all levels in 2011.  (William Voegeli, "The Case Against Liberal Compassion.") "We" have bred dependency and failure. 

Liberty gives people dignity.  The primary role of the state under our constitutional scheme is to defend that liberty against encroachments by sappy politicians and bureaucrats not to change anyone's diapers.  The biblical "if you don't work you don't eat" is a harsher but more life-saving principle than any "program" that feather-brained pussy hat-wearing "progressives" and commie rat bastards can dream up.

What are your questions and concerns?

God bless Russia and God bless President Putin, a true colossal, a statesman and a decent human being who looms tall above the age of evil and insanity in which all humanity finds itself. Russia, because of Vladimir Putin, is now the last hope and shining light for all sane and moral men who wish to destroy once and for all the cabal of war mongering Satanists, the greed filled banksters and their minions, the lying propagandists and hypocrites who have made this planet so full of misery and death for so many unfortunates among us.

 

If the Europeons can finally shake their bondage to the mad dog Bolsheviks, especially those of the insane USSA and its cabal of Zionazis, aligned with Saudi terrorists, then there may be hope of saving all mankind from a future of more death, lies and unbridled evil. Our prayers are with Russia's people and their president and for the hope towards an awakening in the West to the evil in their midst that must be destroyed, if they are to enjoy any future of peace.

 

Confronted as we are today with endless fakes in the West who promise peace before their "elections" and then provoke new wars ad nauseam, it is indeed a wonderful surprise to see a man of peace with real humility in its heart and the tireless spirit, courage and conviction which his proud nation is rightly famed for.

Bismarck had it figured more than 100 years ago; the future for Germany and all of Europe is in the East, with Mother Russia (if she will then still want her wayward, debauched bastard daughter) and when Germany finally "pivots" that will be the end of the anglozionazi empire of filth. In the next days Mr. Putin will display his "beautiful, smart" shiny toys for all the world to see and remind the jackals of the West and their zionazi bankster masters of the consequences should they attempt another futile breach of Russia's vast borders. My money is on the Russian Bear and as Putin says there will be no more wars fought on Russian soil. The message is clear, a world without Russia, (should the gone-to-seed in-bred degenerates of the West dare to entertain the insane thought)...will be no world at all.

M.A.D is still the only thing some of the scum in the West understand; let's hope enough of them are awake to convince the suicidal anglozionazi crackpots among them.

You are delusional, my friend.

Vlad has presided over the continuing decline of Russia by every measure save derivative tech and weapons of war. He foments chais and death wherever he turns his attention. In the Middle East, the seat of great conflict, he turns his devious and deviant hand to sow hatred, death and chaos to meet his hegemonic and economic goal: eternal war to maintain oil prices at the level necessary to fund not just his armory and kleptocracy, but to leave some crumbs for the Sheeple of Russia, who walk with heads down in the halls of culture and commerce, fallen from their deserved perch, and only high in the fields of death and destruction.

Vlad seeks to imbalance the delicate notion of MAD, to insert rogue nuclear powers into the matrix, and weapons that render that balance obsolete, His AA weapons seek to make small-scale conflict impossible, so there can be no pressure valve to relieve regional tension through skirmish rather than total war. THIS IS THE MADNESS OF A TYRANT. When one raises the threshold of destruction while simultaneous lowering the threshold of engagement, putting these decisions and conflicts on the hair trigger of ancient religious and ethnic hatred, he has built the scenario for Armageddon.

He calculates that this will lead to the transcendence of his reign - what comes after him does not concern him. There can be no world without Russia, and no Russia without Vlad™. His words.

This antediluvian madman in his $7,000 suits, his $600 neckties, his $1.2 million watches, $50 million yachts, palaces, dachas, women, little princeling bastards. Tsar Vladimir I, sells this notion of himself as patriarch of mankind, the only man who can bring peace, through HIS ABSOLUTE POWER.

How many times must the Russian people follow such tyrants? How many times must they watch a Russian leader turn the people of the world into cordwood in the fire of his vanity? The man who assasinates his opponent, sends his stormtroopers to imprison, beat and kill dissenters, including women and children. THIS is your great man of history? If Vlad were interested in peace, and not absolute dominance, it would spread as wildfire. But, there can be no peace without Vlad as Emperor. 

One man ruling Russia for 30 years. THIS is the model of tyranny, not the modest servant of the people.
