Russia hails ‘successful’ test of new hypersonic weapons system

Russia has said it has successfully tested a new hypersonic nuclear weapon delivery system that President Vladimir Putin has dubbed a guided “fireball” that is practically invisible.

The country’s defence ministry said the new Avangard weapon was tested on Wednesday.

It is one of an array of new nukes that Putin announced in March and that is at the centre of a potential new arms war bubbling up between Russia and the US.
