    I had to see earlier how rockets take off, but judging by the frames, this missile takes off very quickly. If she also hits, then this is probably a breakthrough. With equipment having such speeds, you can not worry about the country's defense shield.

      Judging by the container, it seems that this is a variant of the 5Zh60 anti-missile. The flight speed was 5,5 km / s, now it is possible and more. The American THAD has 2,5 km / s.

    Acceleration to a speed> 4 max is not news, its acceleration is indicative, that it left the START so!
