The Russian Avangard missile system is a “masterpiece of the Russian army,” whose combat characteristics make it “an even more terrifying weapon than a nuclear bomb”, writes the Chinese portal Sina.
The publication notes that the rearmament of Russian troops to the Avangard complexes, as well as Sarmat and Yars with a missile range of over 10 thousand km, puts the United States “in a desperate situation.”
The article indicates that the American air defense is unable to intercept the missiles of the Avangard complex due to the secrecy of the Russian missile, and the phenomenal speed makes it especially effective.
According to the author of the material, in the event of a hypothetical conflict between Russia and the United States, the American coastal regions will be defenseless against a concentrated attack by the Avangard missles, despite the “most advanced defense system in the world.”
In January, the Ministry of Defense announced that the Strategic Missile Forces (Strategic Missile Forces) will be 100% equipped with new missile systems by 2024. Thus, the troops “will cross the line beyond which there will be no Soviet-made missile systems in combat.”
