    Taken from new Military Acceptance trailer for episode releasing this Sunday, also contains some other interesting stuff like HMDs for helos.

    Trailer below. I made a photo of the front end as it is hard to catch in the video, interesting intake design.

    I suspected as much, but it's now confirmed: it's a RCS model of the US airlaunched HyFly scramjet test vehicle (presumably in case a weapon was developed on its basis).

    Here's the full video (hat tip Steven Trimble):

    Thought I recognized that hangar from somewhere It belongs to a large outdoor RCS range and houses various RCS models of foreign aircraft, missiles and reentry vehicles and was first seen in a video which in 2007 (!) revealed an early precursor to the T-50 configuration we know today.

                            In the Federal Assembly speech just a little while ago, they showed footage of a MiG-31 firing a large boosted ASM that I've never seen before.

                            edit: Yep, it's called Kinzhal (after the ancient Georgian weapon) and it's an air-launched hypersonic missile. And apparently, judging by the footage it's been tested live and is supposedly already in service.

                            They also showed footage of a big bunch of other things, including a HGV similar to the WU-14 or the Falcon, and a laser system similar to the XN-1 LaWS, and they're apparently also in service.

                            Just wow, that came from out of nowhere.

                                Do you mean this footage of the ASM?

                                  That looks remarkably like an air-launched Iskander?!

                                    Kinzhal. Well looks to me like an aerobalistic missile. Nice find Zyklon

                                      1.) The laser should not surprise anyone, USSR had extensive program of experimental mobile lasers in dev for various use.

                                      It is funny though, since we had our expert OoShiny loudly proclaiming in the Syria thread that only the US had a laser drone/mortar defense system in dev, and Russia did not.
                                      Should be a lesson for the "pics don't exist of it!" crowd in the SU-57 thread as well, but I don't have my hopes up.

                                      2.) Ahem, Kinzhal is a word for a dagger used across the Kavkaz, not just Georgia. How about Dagestan, since this it is at least a part of Russia ?

                                      3.) That MiG-31 video just seems off to me, idk about others. Why that platform for a Hypersonic ASM of all choices???

                                      4.) The HGV was mentioned several times, as well as flight tested, that is not exactly out of nowhere. Not sure I believe it being in service though.
                                      Is there footage of it? All I see is that ****ty Zvezda CGI.

                                      5.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2oyIJ6ZHo0
                                      WTF is this? Nuclear cruise missile with global range? With a NUCLEAR ENGINE? Seems like another political message to the US like Status-6 torpedo, rather than anything real. I refuse to believe anything else.
                                      Another nuclear torpedo mention:
                                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-u-klUc9Ro

                                      This has to be aimed at the recent US defense posturing that argues for much expanded (and, shocker, destablizing!) 2nd strike defense.

                                      Anything else we have to go off, just these awful Zvezda vids?

                                        Sadly, insanely - Status-6 is very much real.

                                          Real as in long-range autonomous underwater drones have been tested on Sarov sub, that I believe.

                                          Real as in actual deployed/plan to deploy nuclear torpedo with trans-ocean range? I have my doubts. Posturing so far IMO.
                                          Unfortunately US and Russia are locked in a spiral in regards to nuclear weapons/defensive means.
