The Russians are most likely launching hypersonic Kinzhal missiles on the territory of Belarus. For that reported on the UK Ministry of Defense Twitter.
“The images showed that two MiG-31K fighter-interceptors were almost certainly parked at Belarus’ Machulishti Airport on October 17, with a large container stored nearby in a protective earth wall. The box is believed to be related to the AS-24 KILLJOY air-launched ballistic missile (X-47M2 “Dagger”. — Ed.), large munitions that the MiG-31K variant is adapted to carry”.
Russia has been known to produce this type of missile since 2018, but they were not previously deployed in Belarus.
“Russia has occasionally fired these weapons during the war in Ukraine, but its stockpile is likely very limited. It continues to use its advanced long-range munitions against targets of limited operational importance. With a range of over 2,000 km, basing the Daggers in Belarus gives Russia a little extra advantage in terms of hitting additional targets inside Ukraine. It is likely that she made this deployment mainly to pass information to the West and portray Belarus as increasingly involved in the war.
