Russia has expanded its capabilities of launching strategic missile systems from unprecedented distances, Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) chief Gen. Lori Robinson told Congress.
"Russia continues to modernize its delivery systems capable of launching from distances not previously seen," Robinson told a hearing of the US House of Representatives Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces on Tuesday.
Undersecretary of Defense for Policy John Rood told US policymakers at the same hearing that they take very seriously the capability of Russia and China's hypersonic weapons research and development.
"We are very seriously concerned about the rate of development we see [in hypersonics] in China and also in Russia," he said.
