"The testing of new weapons, including hypersonic ones, is ongoing. All this will allow increasing the combat potential of the Northern Fleet and other fleets of the Russian Navy qualitatively," Shoygu told during the meeting of Russia’s Defense Ministry.
It is also worth noting that the issue related to the implementation of the plan of activity of the Northern Fleet for 2019-2025 is being considered.
As we reported earlier, Russia's Armed Forces group in the Kola Peninsula has been building a new anti-missile radar. Relevant information was provided to TASS news agency by an interlocutor in the Russian military-industrial complex.
"The Rezonans-N system is capable of spotting approaching hypersonic missiles and protect the military installations of the Northern Fleet. From before, two similar complexes are in operation near strategic military objects in Arkhangelsk Oblast, and one system is installed in the archipelago of Novaya Zemlya. The Rezonans-N is capable to discover aircraft and low-observable cruise missiles that fly 20 times the speed of sound. Aerodynamic targets can be spotted at 600 km range, while ballistic missiles can be discovered from 1200 km distance," the message reads.
