Media: all 5 Burevestnik missile tests fail
The longest-running flight lasted for more than 2 minutes; the shortest one took 4 seconds.
Russia has flight-tested a cruise missile Burevestnik for at least 5 times. All tests failed, reports Meduza with reference to CNBC.
According to the American intelligence service, the tests had been performed since 2007. The longest-running flight lasted for more than 2 minutes; the shortest one took 4 seconds.
Sources of CNBC familiar with the respective report by the American intelligence service also reported that Russia was going to add urgency to the work on the project in order for the missiles enter service by 2025.
Theory of the sources of CNBC is that explosion in the Arkhangelsk region occurred as a result of an attempt to take a missile from the seabed where it had found itself after the previous unsuccessful flight-test.
