Sergey Chemezov, the chairman of the Russian defense company Rostec, reported that the Russian Federation had increased Kinzhal hypersonic missile production.
“These missile systems have been in production for a very long period. Such a number wasn’t necessary at first. Currently, we are boosting output, “In an interview with the Russian news agency Interfax, Chemezov remarked.
Rostec generates “colossal amounts of products” for the Russian Defense Ministry, he emphasized as well.
In certain situations, volumes have increased by 50 times, according to the chairman of the state corporation.This mostly affects the ammunition sector. Moreover, up to 300 helicopters, including attack helicopters, can be produced by Russian defense industry by 2023, claims Chemezov.
Rostec built 150–160 airplanes a year earlier.
According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, Russia primarily uses its Kinzhal hypersonic missiles to “scare” Western nations and does not possess a large number of them. The MiG-31 aircraft, which is capable of transporting these missiles, also has an issue.
