Borisov Disproved Existence of Problems with Production of Rockets
Earlier, the American television channel CNBC said that Russia could produce no more than 60 complexes. This is due to the fact that Moscow is experiencing difficulties in obtaining hydrocarbon fiber, which is necessary for Avangard parts. This information was obtained from sources who are familiar with American intelligence materials.
President Vladimir Putin spoke for the first time about the Avangard serial production on March 1, 2018, delivering a message to the Federal Assembly. The system can move in dense layers of the atmosphere at an intercontinental range at hypersonic speed, Putin said.
According to him, a rocket in the air moves toward the target like a fireball. At the same time, the temperature on its surface is 1600–2000 degrees Celsius, the president said.
