Russia says it successfully completed a test launch of the hypersonic missile President Vladimir Putin touted as an "ideal weapon" in early March.
The country's Ministry of Defense released what it says is a video showing the missile being dropped from a plane followed by a fiery tail. The ministry said the "launch was conducted normally" and the missile hit its target.
The BBC reports the Kinzhal missile system, which is named for a type of dagger, can travel 10 times the speed of sound and has a range of 1,200 miles.
As part of his announcement earlier this month, Putin showed an animation depicting warheads falling on what looks like Florida.
