After the announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin of the new strategic strike systems in March 2018, in Russia and in the world they started talking about a “big deception”. Say the Russian president is lying, no "new weapons"no, and all that they showed us is nothing more than an information war.
Most of the questions in the man in the street caused a cruise missile with a nuclear power plant "Petrel". It was reported that it has an unlimited range and can for days or even weeks to patrol in the air, waiting for the command to strike at the enemy.
The development of this rocket began almost 18 years ago, when Washington decided to withdraw from the ABM Treaty and began preparations for the deployment of anti-aircraft systems in Europe. Even then, Vladimir Putin warned the American side that Russia would not sit back and watch the weapons threatening it deployed in its backyard.
Then it was decided to create a cruise missile capable of flying the most confusing trajectory for an unlimited range. To intercept such a goal is almost impossible, which means that American missile defense in Europe loses all meaning.
