    Obviously, it’s not a simple serial rocket that has flown — at such a time it’s unacceptable luxury! Apparently, they may be experiencing new hypersonic gliders! However, no matter what they experience, the main thing is that everything goes well!

    Yeah. A product of such dimensions that it is designed for heavy missiles, and you are already trying to shove it into the lungs. Even those that are already withdrawn from service ....
    Well, you should know that и where allowed from Kapustin Yar ....

    And what ??? Supernova super secret ??? Or is it used for this missile, which "at lunch will be 100 years old" and which is already being withdrawn from service? Of course, it’s not a simple serial, but “golden” (“the testicle is not simple, but golden”). So here? Is it difficult to find out that this is a regular Topol-E experimental rocket that I am disposing of for business ?? Be sure to come up with something like that, such as "obviously that is not a simple serial rocket." Are you trying to do conspirology?
