Vladimir Putin plans to launch new hypersonic missiles that can travel at almost 6,600mph. During upcoming Russian navy drills off the African coast, the “unstoppable” Zircon missiles will be launched from a battleship. They will be directed at a surface target more than 310 miles away.

The nuclear-capable missile’s apparent “training launch” is the Kremlin dictator’s most recent act of defiance.

A source told the Russian state news agency TASS: “During the upcoming exercise with the navies of South Africa and China, a training launch of a Zircon hypersonic missile will be carried out, to be the first-ever during an event of this kind.”
